Re: Saving throws in convos

I can add a saving throw check script similar to the way skill checks are done. For IBbasic, I want to add a pop-up dialog screen that does the dice roll for skill and saving throw checks in conversations. It would look similar to the IBbasic d20 screen in combat. I could do something similar in IB ...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

I finished the UI rework of the game and the toolset. I went with a slight combination of Options 1 and 2. All UI elements can be toggled on/off for the most part. I posted v1.0.18 (PC version) to the NW Vault for those wanting to see the changes and provide feedback. https://neverwintervault.org/pr...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

I've tried smaller buttons before, but it is hard for phones and fat thumbs :lol: RPG Crawler made me a video with a bunch of feedback and suggestions (is unlisted so non-public) on how to improve the UI for an app that is trying to work well for both PC and mobile. Of course that isn't really easy ...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

So RPG Crawler mention that one of the largest weaknesses of IBbasic is the interface and clutter. I'm not as experienced or well versed as Dorateen, Pongo, and others. Do you guys have any suggestions (maybe a mock up or description) of how to improve or revamp the interface to be more intuitive an...

Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

It's funny how certain mannerisms will creep into descriptive text. A little repetition/exaggeration is OK I think especially where most of the "action" takes place in a text window, it helps the reader visualize the scene. Also, it is possible that a group of people in a small town will ...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

We got a nice review from RPG Crawler about IBbasic. He has some good insight and feedback on needed improvements and the parts he liked.

Re: sound/Windows 11 instability?

I wonder if you could test the PC version of IBbasic and see if it has the sound issues as well. It is using a different sound control library. If it works okay then I'll convert IB to use the same setup.

Re: Pescua [title work in progress!]

I've finished the rewrite and gotten stuck into making some new areas and quests. I'm working on a lizardmen camp at the minute and having fun pulling it together. One thing I noticed when redoing the convos is how often my NPCs sigh after saying something. They do it all the time, all of them! The...

Re: IceBlink Engine Streaming

I just watched the latest stream, episode 11, and enjoyed watching your party work their way through Khyn. I'm guessing the wizard in the battle had trouble to target characters because the table in the middle blocked line of sight. Although it's curious he didn't move into a better position. I'll ...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

Thanks Dorateen! They’ll probably just be my projects or my conversions of IB projects like has happened in the past :lol: . Which is fine because it may introduce some to the IB modules that may not have seen them otherwise.
