Re: Textbox slice visibility control

Set sl:textbox layer invisible rather than sl:textbox root . The root is the container slice for a single textbox, so it's created and deleted as textboxes appear. The layer is permanent. When you use the "show textbox" command (or "use npc") the textbox is created immediately so...

Re: One-Time Tag Bug

So you mean it's broken? The gif you posted doesn't show a bug.
Could you describe the two NPCs which have the same onetime tag. Are they global or local NPCs, on same or differing maps?

Re: Just started making a Zelda-type video game

If you want to learn or improve at C++, that's a great idea. If you want to create a Zelda-like, I advise against it. An existing game engine will save you a lot of trouble, and there's so many to choose from.

Re: One-Time Tag Bug

What's amusing is that back when switching between Usable Repeatedly and Usable Only Once incremented the tag number regardless, there were a number of complaints from people worried that the tags were getting wasted (they weren't).

Re: I deleted some games--setting the record straight

Thanks for the explanation, that's moving and enlightening and also useful to have. People mostly remove their games because they don't want to be associated with them, rather than arguing the games themselves shouldn't be seen by the public. When someone asks me for a copy of a game that's no longe...

Re: SUMMER SLAM - the next gen of ohr contest

Looking forward to seeing what people do. Good luck! Is Charbile actually competing or not? I'm glad that Spoonwaever revised the themes and gimmicks. I had wanted to withdraw my (lame) suggestions to increase the chances of "Pick two themes" winning. I've been called for jury service at t...

Re: Upgrades in progress

Turns out that there's a "Delete cookies" button in the footer of each page! Very convenient.

I haven't been able to post for the last day, but if you see this, it means Mogri fixed it!

Re: Upgrades in progress

I had to delete the cookies for slimesalad.com to log in (or use incognito mode). Even password reset doesn't work without doing that. It appears that the last 3-4 days of posts have been lost, thought it would be less. (Edit: and to whoever sent me a PM, you'll have to resend it.) Is it at least po...

I'm more of a medium myself. Otherwise perhaps high. It didn't come through in the gif well at all, but the teleports actually are just updating everything to a purple palette for about two frames. It's meant to be abrupt as part of this room's puzzle, but it doesn't look quite this weird in the act...

Oh, wow. Big milestones. Are the other parts going to be of similar play length? Replying to some older updates: So removing the letterboxing was the reason for changing the hero formations. Seems like a huge task. You'd not redoing all your battle backdrops? Does that mean you're leaving some lette...

I expect and intend Icecream to lift the 16-colour limitation. Two further things I think we should add: -Backdrops with more than one frame, for animations -Drawing sprites using the master palette directly without an intermediate (16/limited-color) palette. Palette -1 means the default palette, so...

Considering that this could well be the final content update, I've got to say congratulations again on making it to the end of such a tortuous journey! It's also heartening to see that you went right back into working on other games despite being burnt out on this one. Hate to see people quit game-m...

Yes, unfortunately a moderator needs to manually link them up and there's no easy way to see which aren't linked. I've gone through and linked up everything on the first two pages of the Reviews forum. Sorry for the (sometimes years long) delay. I've been meaning to automate the process by writing a...
