Your wish would be granted, however, you ended up with nothing!

I wish that my country wins this year's Soccer World Cup.

What is the difference between PlayMusic and PlayLoop?
They seem to be rather similar, although I understand that they were made for distinct ends.

I'm back! I was away during December and when I returned I found that my computer broke down. (It probably missed me so much that its heart was broken! :) )
But now everything seems to be working, so I'll have a couple of months of catching up to do.

The remakes of TRPG1 and 2 will be free, though, right? *hopeful face*

I'm not even sure if I'm making them! At this point, it's impossible to say.
I'm afraid that wasn't on Craig's plans 18 months ago... perhaps he will change his mind.
Or perhaps some of the TRPG fans make it (hint, hint). :)

Edit: grammar.

Also: fixed a bug where trying to grab an item sack from on top of a bridge tile would result in the character grabbing the bridge tile instead of the item sack. (Whoops.)
That was an incredibly funny bug! I'm a bit sad that it got smashed. :D

Two new script actions: SpawnFloatingText and SpawnFloatingTextAt, both of which create your own little text pop-ups on the screen[...]
Note: do not use commas in the first parameter or bad things will happen.
Comas may be useful when writing text...
May I suggest the use of something like quotation marks as limiters of the text to use?
Of course that forgetting about the quotation marks may also make bad things to happen.

Welcome back. The old timers that were active in the last month were bugfartboy, SmartyPants and algebra17 (aka Duckling) and, of course, Craig and me.
There are a few newcomers and others just pop in occasionally.

I wasn't around for a couple of weeks this month because I was enjoying my holidays. :)

By the way, on average, unladen swallows fly at about 11 m/s (about 24 mi/h).
I bet you weren't expecting this!

And since you're here, why not sharing your thoughts about shadowling feeding?

It's an interesting question!
I'll have to think a bit about it...
By the way, welcome to the forums Sage.

I've begin some preliminary work on random battlefield generation!
Right now, the plan is to create an algorithm that intelligently cobbles together dungeons out of 5 x 5 prefabricated chunks. (Below is a picture of one such chunk.) I haven't 100% decided on all of the details yet, but I imagine that hallways will mostly be 3 x 5 in size, some with destructible objects to form choke points. I'll post more about it tomorrow when I make more progress. :)

The tough part of random battlefield generation is making diverse maps while avoiding isolated areas. They're great to increase the replayability of the game by adding diversity to multiplayer games and campaigns.

How random will the generation be? Is it just random, or do you have something more complicated? I understand the idea of the 5*5 chunks but I fear some obstacles will still be there, namely the problem of choosing a "good" neighbouring tile.

I was thinking about it and I have a somewhat simple but not perfect approach. You can think of tiles or chunks (like the 5*5 tiles you presented).

Lets start by defining an array P(i,j,k) of n*n*4 with probabilities (or something similar). The 1st number, i, would be the index of the current tile, the 2nd number, j, the index of the neighbouring tile and the 3rd number, k, would be the position of neighbouring tile: North, East, South or West.

Starting with any position on the battlefield (random choice), we would choose the 1st tile type i randomly.
The next tile type j would be chosen in the following manner:
- Choose a random position k, restricted to the ones that are not occupied;
- Choose a neighbour j in that position, with probability P(i,j,k)/(sum over all jj of P(i,jj,k)).
Now choose one tile that has "free" neighbours and choose the next tile. Repeat until the board is filled.

A more difficult approach would be a creation of paths such that all walk-able spaces are connected (if you don't want isolated sections of the battlefield). After that, the algorithm would need to choose the appropriate tiles for the walls of the path, having in consideration the neighbours' tile types.

I'm assuming that you want a HUD to present info for a small amount of types of stuff, something like: a) tiles, b) items, or c) units.
If you want the HUDs to be different (in info and in style) in each case, you have the possibility of having a set of HUDs (three, following my example above). When hoovering over the object (or clicking it) the required HUD would appear and the others would be hidden.

Now it's nicer. Or should I say: sweet!

(Oh, you have a repeated </Item> in the first cake orb.)

I'm not sure, but the cake orb seems to be only a tiny bit overpowered... but I love the addsStatus="Heavy" and the general idea of the change in stats.
By the way, I prefer the 2nd cake orb, we dead cows love worms! :P (As if I could draw better...)

I just noticed that I've been around here for a bit over 100 hours.
To celebrate that, I invite you all to eat a cake orb! (Just don't bite too hard your monitor!)

By the way, I thought that the new Telepath Tactics could have a new type of orb:
the cake orb -- it's just yummy!

Cool! Thanks.
And the scripts seem to be a nice feature too.

Craig: Can the "weapon degradation" be used to do something like giving the bowman 10 flaming arrows?  So, the bowman would have that extra attack until the 10th flaming arrow was shot.
