I figured this board would be the best place to formally announce that this is being working on. I've already had a lot of fun with Hugo, and have decided to keep chugging along a bit more in this language for a side IF project of mine that so far only existed as plot layout written on a notebook.

Here's a rough screenshot of the prototype, based on the infamous "cafeteria" code. This is what I did on Thanksgiving waiting for my turkey to cook:



Next up will be creating new areas to move into, as well as updating the graphic after the move. After that, I hope to get inventory control before moving onto conversation. Most functions of basic verbs seem pretty self-explanatory by looking at examples. There's definitely a steep beginning learning curve here as opposed to Inform, but it is nice to actually do coding for fun in something closer to C and not feel like I'm speaking in riddles.

You could include the relative "unfairness" or "randomness" of treatment where some people get selected for arrest, imprisonment or execution, apparently at random.

And stay off the phones:
* An American ambassador visiting North Korea was held at the border until he paid his outstanding phone bill. There is no direct phone service between the US and the DPRK so he had to relay calls through the U.S. embassy in Canada. They wouldn't let him leave the country until he paid the phone bill, about $27,000. In cash.
* But at least he got out unscathed, one guy wasn't so lucky. Someone made an unauthorized phone call from North Korea to another country. He was executed for doing so.
* You have to turn your phone in when you enter the country; apparently you do get it back when you leave. Inside the country I think they do have phones and I suspect you can get one but it's tied to you, and I wouldn't be surprised if all calls are monitored. Call the wrong person or say the wrong thing and your visit might be extended, say by several years at forced labor.

Other points:
* North Korea is an extremely poor country, and the whole idea is (if you're one of the poor bastards who are a resident) that for anything you have at all, even basic subsistence, or even that you're still alive, you should give thanks (and pray) to your benefactor, the leader of the country, the late Kim Jong Il. Yes, I said, late, the DPRK is a thanatocracy where the country is ruled by a ghost.
* Lots of pictures of the current leader.
* Everyone is paranoid that they'll be grabbed up, and as bad as their existence is, being made into a forced laborer in a country where everyone already is a slave, is even worse, in ways you can't imagine.
* Almost everyone wears a standard (gray) uniform.

If I'm wrong on these points then you might want to include that as exposition in the game.

Yeah, definitely TDarcos. A lot of the "scary" aspects of the country will be pointed out.. though I don't want to give too much away about what will happen.

The game will have 3 PCs.. one is an American tourist, one is a citizen of Pyongyang, and another from a um.. I'll just say MUCH less comfortable situation. I've done a lot of research about the country over the past few months out of no motivation but just fascination for how different things there are.

I really think the hardest perspective to write will be from the perspective of the fairly well-to-do person living in the capitol city of Pyongyang. Getting into the mind of someone who is a true patriot of the country will probably be pretty tough.

ABSOLUTELY FUCKING INCORRECT!!

You saw the words NORTH KOREA and remembered a PAGE LOAD OF RANDOM FACTS ABOUT IT, and figured that was your CUE.

JONSEY!!!!!!!








SPLIT THAT SHIT!!! (and then BAN HIS ASS.)

Haha I could have pointed out that some of TDarco's post is actually not quite as true anymore. Maybe make a 10-line list of every statement that people who have been there say is incorrect.

But this will do.

I realized I knew I was making a grievous error when I characterized his post as a page-load of "facts", instead of "random factoids that may have one time had the slightest basis in truth but at this point probably everything he said was constructed of false-remembrances and pork patty dinner stuck in his brain."

Ben is correct. So I think it's time we established a new rule.

When Talking About Adventure Games And North Korea, The Message Line Limit Is 20 (Twenty) Lines For Commander Tansin Darcos

OK? Do we all agree to this? Jizaboz? Aardvark? Ben? Kung-Il?

When discussing either Korea, and only with regard to adventure games, he should be allowed 20 lines MINUS the difference between the 38th parallel and whatever specific latitude he is making wildly false statements about.

Ok but let's add 4 lines to whatever the result is, that way, he at least gets 4 lines.

I also think that stops us from overcomplicating the whole deal.

Alright, first request for some coding help here.

So, from the Cafeteria example, the "currentpicture".

Code:

global currentpicture = "/nkimages/traffgirl1.jpg"


I'm hoping to rework the inventory/status window soon, but for now I'm really unsure how I should go about updating this upon something like (pseudo code) "n_to {current picture = "/nkimages/statues.jpg"

}".

I see "UpdateGraphicsWindow" and other graphic-related code in the CZK code and I've tried a few things sort of like that, but maybe I'm over-complicating it for just trying to update a picture every time a player moves and in the future when a "scene" occurs.

I'm not entirely sure what's being asked here, so I'll just go over each part of it. I think we need to go over three things.
  1. Set up a resource file.
    It's nice to set up a resource file so your game isn't distributed with a bunch of files. You do it with something like:
    Code:
    resource "MSTRYHS1"
    {
      "/home/Gerynar/HugoDev/MysteryHouse/graphics/exterior.jpg"
      "/home/Gerynar/HugoDevel/MysteryHouse/graphics/interior.jpg"
      "/home/Gerynar/HugoDevel/MysteryHouse/graphics/note.jpg"
    ! Some more pictures here
    }

    You'll also want to change the line in the DrawWindows routine from:
    Code:
          LoadPicture(currentpicture)

    to
    Code:
          LoadPicture(MYSTRYHS1,currentpicture)
    (where "MYSTRYHS1" is the name of your resource file)

    The perk of doing it this way is that from then on, you can just set the currentpicture to the name of the individual picture and don't need to use paths or anything.

  2. Have DrawWindows called every turn.
    Just add the following line to the main routine, so DrawWindows is called after every succesful turn:
    Code:
    DrawWindows

    I guess the cafeteria code already does this.

  3. Change the currentpicture global, as needed.
    Then yeah, it's just a matter of changing the currentpicture global at times the picture should change. With your example, I'd do something like:
    Code:
    n_to {current picture = "statues" ! extension isn't necessary since we're using a resource file
            return statue_room ! so we still make it to the right room
    }

    Assuming that there are other things with pictures to look at in the room, we'd also add it to the room's long_desc property so when the player LOOKs, it resets to the room picture:
    Code:

    room statue_room "Statue Room"
    {
       long_desc
          {
          currentpicture = "statues"
          "Statue Room description."
          }
       s_to other_room
    }

Haha now that's worse than Sprint's billing rate!

I could see this happening, considering that's illegal there and they do not play around punishment-wise.

Corn as well as cabbage (and probably rice) will be big factors in this adventure.


Today after work I tried making a revision of my code. I had a few errors I could clean up but I'm not sure about these yet:



Code:
193:  trafficgirl.long_desc:  Error:  Syntax error:  currentpicture
193:  trafficgirl.long_desc:  Error:  Illegal assignment
314:  routine drawwindows:  Error:  Syntax error:  loadpicture
314:  routine drawwindows:  Error:  Syntax error:  dprk
314:  routine drawwindows:  Error:  Syntax error:  currentpicture
314:  routine drawwindows:  Error:  Expecting value following:  ,


The offending lines:

line 193 (this is within the long_desc{ bracket of the first room):
Code:

   currentpicture = "traffgirl1"


Line 314 (314 is LoadPicture(DPRK,currentpicture) :
Code:
run pictureWindow.win_init              ! Initialize

   window                                  ! Re-open the last-defined

   {                                       !   window (i.e., this one)



      LoadPicture(DPRK,currentpicture)



   }


and my resource.h:

Code:

resource "DPRK"

{

  "images/traffgirl1.jpg"

  "images/statues.jpg"

}


I'm in a windows environment with the images folder sitting as a sub-folder in the same folder as my source. I realize it's just syntax errors (still getting the hang of things) but a nudge in the right direction would be cool. I'll post the whole source once I get the image properly changes between 2 rooms for reference.

I would guess that currentpicture is not declared as a global variable for some reason (it should be in the original code), like:
Code:
global currentpicture


Also, I would guess that "resource.h" has not been properly included. Also, the LoadPicture line should probably be:
Code:
LoadPicture("DPRK",currentpicture)

Cool! Got it going. I'm going to edit it a bit before posting though.

Had that global commented out btw (duhhhh) and didn't realize before that last build. Also, the quotes on DRPK were needed.

Thanks again.

Doh, no I don't. I must have had some old stuff laying around letting the images load outside of the resource file. After cleaning up my folders and trying to re-compile I'm getting an error:

Code:
C:\Hugo\source\DPRK.hug:323:  routine drawwindows:  Error:  Syntax error:  loadpicture


I've noticed the flack's cafeteria code also seems to throw this if I don't have the image in place, so I need some sort of correction for using a resource files is my best guess. The actual game will load, but no pictures are displaying. I decided to clean up the source folder after I was having a hard time getting a 3rd image into the game.

resource.h:

Code:

resource "DPRK"

{

  "images/statues.jpg"

! Some more pictures here

}


I have an images folder sitting within the Hugo source folder.

resource.h is one of the Hugo standard library files. It seems like you may have replaced it with your own "resource.h" file (that you are using for defining your resource file). If that's not the case, I'll look at it closer.

Um.. no need to look at it closer. I don't know how I pulled that one off. I guess the filename was on my brain as I typed out a name for a resource file. Whups! Thanks again.
