Last week we tracked down a crash that I had introduced with the player name/class listings. We also saw that in-quest playername/class listings were messed up. I was able to fix the crash (the alpha client is updated with the latest changes) but did not track down the in-quest naming issue yet.

We'll continue again tonight at 7:00pm eastern!
Editing A&A / Level editing: Git or Dropbox?
« Last post by peewee_RotA on April 09, 2016, 11:04:46 AM »
I've previously jumped between two separate machines while doing level editing. Passing files via email was fine but I've had to add a 3rd place to work. So I'm thinking of putting some time into having a better work flow. Especially one that can handle version histories.

I typically use source repositories for plain text type projects and use dropbox for art assets. I feel like levels and their accompanying script files are an inbetween concept. What does everyone recommend?

Secondly, when this is all set up I think it would make level numbering much easier if the repository is open to anyone who wants to do editing. Not that we would mess with eachothers maps, but if they all had one home then we could set asside a set of numbers for a specific project.

It was always a nice detail that there were usually bones/corpses near traps. I also like that there are so many little items that don't really have a use, like buckets or swamp weed.

Should be on for tonight. Might even stream the gameplay live on twitch.

I haven't put together a voice client option yet. When that's up and running I'll get a hold of people ahead of time to see if they're comfortable with being streamed and will set up the chat accordingly. But for right now we probably won't have voice chat this week.

Testing out the idea of hosting a dev stream... On that note, I'm going to start streaming pwmod changes now.

I've never been the biggest fan of JRPGs, in fact they completely lost me in the late 90's and I've never looked back since. I'm more of a fan of what I like to call American RPGs. These were games defined by attempting to take the freedom of narrative tabletop role playing and fit it into a computer game. There were plenty of mechanical influences with turn orders and player stats, but the driving force was interacting with the world through narration. Games to keep in mind are the Forgotten Realms series, the Ultima franchise, Elder Scrolls, Wizardry, Strife, Stonekeep, and even the Japanese made Faxanadu for NES.

The thing that caught my attention with these games was the freedom. Players have many ways to solve problems and thousands of choices on how they want to start their characters. Everything in the world is interactive one way or another. The player character is really just a conduit for you as the player to touch the virtual world. That's awesome, and A&A makes the list with flying colors. This added lots of little gimmicks and jokes for players to enjoy.

So with that in mind, what are your favorite little details about A&A? Not major gameplay features, just little nuances that were fun.

For me it is the carrots giving night vision and the wand of lightning shocking players. There were such charming features to find out for the first time many years ago.
