It's not that Jamie. From what I understand the menu loading screen displays 'press action to start' and the default is that room 1,1 should be called 'press action to start'. in the game, room 1,1, is part of the map so when the menu screen loads instead of 'press action to start' being displayed, ...

Having read through this thread I'm wondering if you're trying to use the tile as a coloured background rather than an 'object' in the game. I've been doing this for my new game as I wanted to have a blue background rather than the default of black as the game is set on a tropical island. Initially ...

Hmm HUD

I've got a little HUD problem (no carry on humour please!) It seems that the RoomNamesFile uses room 1,1 as a default for the 'press action to start' message as the title of the room in the loading menu screen. However, I've already used room 1,1 as part of the main game and can't seem to figure out...

Hi Boo I know what it's like having made my first game a few months ago as a complete novice. If you're anything like me the tutorials are like learning a foreign language, but do persist cos although there is loads of frustration in trying to make things work, the sense of achievement when you get ...

No worries AdzM and no need to apologise. Spam is now just a tedious part of everyday computer life ..although I can't say the same about spam fritters - yummy!

Haven't been here for a few weeks as I've been totally wrapped up in the second part of Daisy Goes Solo, but when I logged on today I found a couple of private messages. Ooh, I thought, who's been writing to me ...only to find one was a bit of spam telling me to consider buying medicines on-line and...

Thanks AddictedDizzy - I did manage to find it after trying jumping around all over the place ...problem was I started from the wrong end of the map, so it took quite a few hours to find the spot ...and then having solved the 'miners' spent the next few hours dying in the icy caves!!

Thanks Meph, but my IQ seems to have deserted me. I've just run back and forth trying everything again on the two dwarfs who just aren't interested in anything I've got ...nothing fits in the well (just on the off chance that I could empty the oil down a well and get some water) ..and can't think of...

Well, call me a total thicko, but am really stuck on this game, even after scouring all the help pages! Not counting the items that have coins hidden behind them, I have some mint, a pipe (that I assume I can't use on the machine until I've given the bloke his yellow button, which I can't get till I...
