I haven't played that game yet but yeah I would be upset with racism in a game too.
In any thing dealing with racism , even if it's to show why racism is wrong , it's hard for me to watch , whatever that type of story or movie , ect.

I second alot of what people have already stated ( math puzzles...mazes...ect. Unless they are easy I don't want to have to find a way to bypass them or look for a saved game state just so that I won't have to deal with those puzzles. )
Actually I hate nearly all puzzles anyway because I am that bad at gaming. ( I love "give me A and I'll give you B" puzzles since they're usually pretty easy )

.....I don't like gross things like urination or feces being in games , I don't consider it funny and I don't want to have anything to do with it. Homophobia content / "jokes" and describing things as being gay is a big peeve too. Other than things like that I can still like your game.
I'm sorry if I upset anybody by bringing up more serious points about what some people put in their games.


And of course, don't miss the Tex Murphy games. ;D
That's where one the games is called "Mean Streets" , right? I love those games! Well , game. I haven't played the others....yet. Actually , I had a love-hate thing for MS but any way it's been a long time since I played it...
Chris made those?! o.O ( *is a tad confused* )
Thanks for the help EvenWolf. I don't know why I can't get the links to work like that when I try to post them correctly but it's a big help that you reposted them that way.
Ok , here's the link to my other thread , 
free Stonehenge BG inside!
I love it and it's already being used in Centaur Mania.
Centaur Mania and other game ideas / related chat

Oh , yeah , I visited there for a little while , guess I just forgot about that site. Whoops.

Arg , I keep having problems with using the forum ( *blush and sigh* )

Any way , I don't know why but this weird little guy showed up in a bathroom tile so I just had to draw him.
I think he'd fit right in as an AGS character.
What do you think?
Sorry there's no body yet but I haven't started on that...
was in a hurry to show him off.

Guess I have to copy and paste the coding , otherwise when I try it , it doesn't work. Hmm. lol
Anyway , yay , I'll be able to post screenshots and stuff now!

Strange , that avatar I made for the forums doesn't look good here...I'll make a new one.

I don't know why the first post has spaces now in the parts where there shouldn't be...any way , I figured out how to get the links working like the way E. had them , sorry about earlier. I have to copy and paste just to get the stupid things to work. The spaces underneath "main" links ...I forget where...some where towards the bottom I think , anyway , yeah , those are on purpose but the ones at the top aren't and no matter I did , I couldn't fix them.
So...when I look at the actual coding it looks the way it's supposed to yet for the rest of you it looks like it has blank spaces or something...sorry about that.
I'm not feeling well , it's one of those "girl things" so I don't want to talk about it , sorry if you have any questions for me or some thing and I don't answer you as fast as you'd like ....but I'm not feeling well. Also , I'll be over at my mom's for a while ,  if I don't get on much lately I'm either sleeping or busy with other things or can't get their computers to work , ect. Last time I checked the computers were working but at the same time supposedly had viruses but you never know sometimes. Peace out and party on.

Hm. Maybe I should come to this post more often. Even though I've been around Ags since it first came out I have still not made a game, I rarely post, and other stuff. So I guess one would call me a novice when regarding the actual use and learning Ags.
I agree , you aren't a newbie if you've been around since it first came out , even if you haven't done much. I don't mind people calling me a newbie , but I agree with the idea that thinking as just anybody = newbie would be bad.  
It should go without "saying" , but even though this thread is intended for newbies , all are welcome! Novice , Intermediate , Advanced , ect. Doesn't matter. I'd still love to see a post from you! Even if it's just to stop by and chat about a game idea or some thing.
I read somewhere ( I really need to find that again so I can post it in here ) that Chris himself hasn't made any other games besides Demo Quest but it's only because he's so busy , so of course calling him a newbie just for not making more games would be a very bad idea!  ;-D
Try thinking forwards then backwards then forwards again.
It's fun.
And try speaking english backwards. It's funny.

"Its looking better now. Also, this would probably make the thread easier to read, instead of putting a heading above the link you can use: [ url=]Type stuff here[/url ]"

Oh , duh! *slaps forehead* Thank you very much.
*laughs at herself*

BTW I love the Grandpa DG thing. Very funny.

*growls at coding* Well , I tried your

[ url=]Type stuff here[/url ]

suggestion and it didn't work , I used it similar to the way you typed it and tried it with "

hmmm I just thought of something else and will try it...
I didn't see any rules about not using html coding so hopefully this time it'll work.

*sighs* That didn't work either.

I tried all possible ways to list a url without that annoying "seperate the title" thing but nothing worked , I will keep trying though because you all are right , they do look better that way.
Sorry to go into stupid newbie mode again , but who is Mara and what does that have to do with my thread?
Just confused / curious.

Some more previews.
The first one lacks a cityscape / other interesting details 'cause I haven't made any cityscapes and am still working on the city scenes...
I didn't use any PSP filters or anything in these unlike one of my earlier previews so you can see how I can draw an elaborate pattern myself.

Sorry, but I just don't get what the point of this thread would be... seeing as you've just provided links to the other parts of the forums, and to the READ ME FIRST! kinda threads in those boards...

If they are too stupid not to look at them in the first place, why would they go to a thread designated for them to go to those threads? :-\
Because most  newbies tend to look in forums like general first , right?

I've seen threads like this in other forums and it's perfectly acceptable , what's so wrong with posting a list of links?
I'm sorry if it's not very useful , because it's supposed to be , that's why I made it!
Like it states in the title , it's about newbies helping newbies ...sure I don't have much to contribute yet other than a list of the important threads and so on , but I thought it was a great idea since I've seen things like this elsewhere and newbies did make use of it!

Simple barebones BGs  - some using "perspective" ( which is why things look a bit square or whatever ..but it's supposed to look a bit more realistic than the simple flatliner despite still cartoony quality BG. )

And of course I'll post more exciting versions of them later but I still wanted to show off the barebones 'cause I think even basics are fun.  I did a city thing with one of 'em but haven't added any lamp posts or anything like that because I just wanted to do something for fun and show it off quickly...
Hopefully coming soon , bird's eye view / map and other "perspective" type BGs.
I'm not sure why anyone would , since they're basic , but feel free to use 'em in your own games if you like! I'll try to make something better for you all to use eventually. Also feel free to use Stonehenge. I'll post the link to the thread where you can find that ...sometime.

General Discussion / Newbies introduce yourselves here!
« on: 21 Apr 2004, 00:20 »
Being a newbie myself , I request that this be stickied so that future newbies can have a place to meet and maybe help each other out.

Self Intro
Hello , my name is Karessa but I prefer to be known as Kara. I would give out my last name but my parents made a big deal about it. *sighs* I'm 24 , what's the big deal with giving out my last all put it in your email accounts even though you should know better! Oh , sorry , got off topic there. Any way ,  I'm interested in AGS because I love classic gaming and I grew up with things like Atari , Sierra's older stuff ,  interactive fiction , ect.
I am interested in many other things too , so if you ever want to talk about Anime or dolls , please drop me a PM or email some time!
I am an amateur programmer , artist , and I wish I could sing and make awesome music too.
I don't have any instruments yet ( I used to have a few but lost them ) but hope someday to be in a band or some thing , even if only for a little while.
My full given name online is Kara Ann Vortex.
I was born in Germany in 1979 ( which of course means that I grew up in the 80's ....woo hoo! )
I was into Anime back when I didn't even know there was a name for it and it wasn't as popular as it is today.
I was there ( but not "there there" if that makes any sense ) when the Berlin wall , aka Iron Curtain came down.
My father was in the army and now he's a postal worker.
So don't tick me off or I'll find out where you live and complain to my daddy. j/k lol
Yes , at my age I still usually refer to my dad as Daddy. I'll hurt anybody who makes fun of me for that. ;-P
I now live in beautiful washington state.
I guess that's it.
Sorry if you thought any of this little speech was boring.

General Discussion / Re:how old are YOU?
« on: 20 Apr 2004, 22:29 »
Yeah, when I was 16 I would have thought it ludicrous that someone couldn't remember their own age.

Wait a decade.  You'll see.
This guy I like once made a big deal about how I couldn't remember my own age a few times. Once was because my father mislabeled the pics / folder so I got confused too. I don't know why I forgot it the other time.
Any way , I was born in 1979. Unless I really am that crappy at math or what ever , that means I'm 24.  ::)

Hi! Yep. If you've been to the hints and tips forums lately I started posting there as a guest because I am crappy at games. *sighs*
Then I decided to join since I wanted to reply to other threads and want to get into making AGS games eventually.
Thank you!

Glad to see another person that is into interactive fiction getting into AGS also. Especially one who , unlike me , has actually finished projects.
Thanks for making those games , I love fairy tales and your version of goldielocks was...different.
I can't wait to see what you have cooking in AGS!
"To Hell in a Hamper" , I just downloaded it again and
I will play it again sometime.

Now, now gilbert.  She was only part asian. The other half was Jewish. And she had the voice of a valley girl.

Doesn't that freak anyone else out? ;)
I so have to make a character like that now.
I love other cultures ( I'm not Jewish but I know the words to the dreidel song by heart and I love Hannukah ...I'm into Anime and Japanese and Chinese clothes and love other things like shadow puppet plays and kamishibai...ect. ) and I grew up in the 80's. Valley girls make me laugh and I like to use valley speak quite a bit.  I hope that when I finally "get" how to use AGS I'll do good on the character graphics.
