    ThinBasic Adventure Builder Project

    The ThinBasic Adventure Builder (T.A.B.) project page is here:

    http://tab.thinbasic.com/

    TAB is a text adventure or interactive fiction maker I am writing with thinBasic.

    Remember those old retro classics like Zork, Infocom, Level 9, Magnetic Scrolls etc?

    This will work more like the old Quill, PAW or GAC programs than the popular languages such as TADS, HUGO and INFORM...

    It consists of:
    TAB Editor for constructing, creating and saving an adventure database.
    TAB Player for testing and playing games made with the Editor.

    Currently at Alpha stage.

    Any feedback or comments welcome.

    Hello,

    Alpha Release 9 includes the Standalone version of TAB Player.
    This will be the runner .exe program for opening and playing adventure files made with the TAB Editor (Basically the TAB program minus the Editor)

    The bug causing the 'Too Many Nested Gosubs..." is fixed

    Best wishes,

    Hello,

    Have updated TAB to alpha 11 with a couple of fixes

    * Character text announcement display anomaly fixed
    * %tags% now work in locations, system messages and other text shown (reported by Psch)
    * Font colour trick didn't work in WinME/2000. Removed until better way of assigning colours to outputted text found. (Reported by Psch)
    * Some speed improvement due to latest faster ThinBasic.

    Hi catventure,

    thanks for your post. I really WANT to solve richedit compatibility problem and give you a working solution ASAP. After that I will develop some internal UI module functions working directly with richedit control in order to give you more direct power on it.

    Ciao

    Re: ThinBasic Adventure Builder Project

    TAB small update:

    05 Sep 06 (Alpha Release 12)
    =========
    * Vocabulary Listboxes now functioning correctly
    * %charname1% and %charname2% tags now printing 'character name text' properly
    * Character demo database updated to demonstrate communication with Characters
    eg: 'ask <character> about <person/thing>' or talk to <character>'
    The User flag variables could be used to vary replies in certain situations.
    * turnscount 'turns' now starts correctly at 0 instead of -1
    *conditions: charpresentn1,charpresentn2,charabsentn1, charabsentn2
    charpresentX and charabsentX were causing problems in entries. Fixed.

    Hi,

    Many thanks to Catventure for the improvements - I just asked Joseph about robot . Also trying to talk to dog is nicely handled

    Thanks,
    Petr

    Edit: Eros, with the 1.0.11.0 it is ok, but it seems the latest version of UI module you've send me cause problems - I cannot send the commands in the game using enter.
