    Unhappy

    The only things that have been improved in the beta are performance things to make large system behave better. (50+ users at once type of systems)

    So I'm kinda waiting to see if I can actually add something new before releasing a new official version.

    Seth,

    I was thinking you could add Time. So that when people step out it can be night time?

    it would give a whole new feel for the game. possibly add some night time music to correspond the day.

    just this simple feature would change the game play completely.

    of course i say simple, but i know nothing of flash lol.

    Hmm I don't really follow.

    The probably with doing anything that ties to real-time is that we need to assume that players are each playing from different time zones.

    It'd be a bit confusing if they had to log on at certain times to do certain things.

    Maybe I'm misundersanding.

    No, no.

    If the users, lets say, had 100 turns

    and at about 75 turns (or owner of game defined) the map changes to a night time theme. or have it set for server time so at different times of the day the map changes, to fit the day or night..

    What i mean is,

    Lets say its 8pm server time, the map would look dark blue night time, the hospital would have lights on, the street lights be lit, the parlor lights be on;

    (Nothing with game interfearance, in the way of game play, just something to change the mood of the game play.)

    Day vs. Night scenes in real life are much different, but the things people do are the same and the buildings are the same.

    it just looks different!

    I dont know scripting, I'm thinking more illiterate artsy stuff.

    The music could sound a bit calmer to fit night time. ect...


    Just a scheme I supose is the word i am looking for.

    Oh ok, well yeah, more art is always good. Thing is though, I bet most people play out all their turns before leaving their parlor so I don't think we'd get much mileage out of the art.

    Especially servers that run the recommend 15 or so turns.

    But on the other hand, that is something that could be done completely on the flash side, so maybe someone will try it?

    Seth, has anyone besides you successfully compiled the Flash source in a map that doesn't crash? There's something just tweaked enough about that source code, or the fonts used, or
    some other library thingie that's used, that seems to prevent stable modifications to the code. A web service in which flash code was uploaded on compiled by your system would be excellent (and probably illegal ).

    But I am curious if someone has hacked the map and produced a stable product (on that doesn't mysterious hang or crash the browser). My map hack failed; the casino map hack is a little wobbly. Are there others?

    Anyway, I'll looking forward to seeing what you've been working on. You've been quiet for several weeks now.

    See the reason I sugest it is, when a player is all out of turns with visits and turns, you say in the game how "late it is, maybe shop should close for the day"

    so it brought to my mind night time

    it would be nice; spice to the game anywho, just a sugestion ^%^ to help your game.

    Could even make the User database printable so admins can keep an actual paper trail of their users.

    both printable in the main list and printable from their actual user account. ^^

    How about an option to split the day into two "shifts". Instead of having the game turn over only at midnight, have it turn at noon as well. This way callers could play two "rounds" in a single day, once in the morning and once at night.
    The night shift could incorporate new artwork and might also spur some ideas for mods (ie. spooky events at night, etc).

    Hmm, yeah I really would like to add support for customization with the turn system. So you could refresh at any interval you choose, allow turns to be 'saved up' with a max you specify, etc.

    About Flash - I would guess the problem is using Flash MX, the original FQ stuff I did was all with Flash 5.

    I should have a lot of time in about three weeks or so... will probably do an upgrade to Dungeon Scroll and FQ then. I'll get the Flash working with the new Flash MX stuff.
