  1. Step-by-Step Quest Creation in Intersect Date Modified: 6/27/2017 Engine Used: Intersect 3.1 The following guide will show steps to create a quest which will allow the game developer to take advantage of all the great features Intersect has built in. After reading this guide, the developer should have a good grasp of the ways by which the quest system is set up. The guide uses Intersect 3.1. Pre-req: You should have some basic familiarity with the Intersect Engine, how to access the Quest Editor and the Events system. You should know the basics of the Event editor commands hierarchy system. You should understand the basics of the Animation editor if you want to add the "!" and "?" symbols above the head of your quest-giver in the Optional Precursor. Requirements: You should download Intersect 3.1. You should have some sprites to use for your quest-giver event, as well as some monsters set up in the NPC editor. Basic stuff! Precursor (Optional): For this guide, we will be using quest animations specific to the point in the quest which the player has reached (The "!" and "?" symbols above the NPC's head). Step 1: Figure out what you want the quest to do. Step 2: Let's create the quest itself! Step 3: For this part, we'll need to create an event (an NPC) who will both give the quest and act as a return point for when it is completed. So I hope this winds up being a help to some folks who are trying to get to know the Quest Editor system a little better. Rest assured I'll try to keep tabs on this thread and improve/add to this as necessary. That in mind, I may have forgotten some things, so if you find an error, etc., let me know! Thanks and happy questing!
  2. Bite and Slash Animations

    Free to use - I made these for A4C and don't think I ever shared them. Good for monsters, creatures, or anything you like! Set them up 3x2, obviously No need to give me credit - only if you want to/have space in credits.
  3. Weapon paperdoll bug

    This is a problem with the file setup. Your Sword.PNG does not line-up with your characters. Best to use the same ratio when creating sprites/paperdoll items. I have attached a fixed PNG for your swords. Enjoy!
  4. Server dont work

    You seem to be launching Intersect for the first time (If you aren't I apologize, but for simplicity's sake, let's suppose you are) Several things can keep the server from working if you're not hooking up to 'localhost': The first, you already mentioned - the firewall. Check that it isn't the problem by completely disabling it (it looks like you have) The second is through your antivirus software. You can add the Server.exe to the exceptions on your antivirus software as suggested, or completely disable it to test. As it says in the display text, you might also be at the mercy of some other institution's firewalls or exceptions, in which case, you very likely won't be able to change any of the outcomes here, anyway (most common on college campuses or at a place of business/public WiFi, etc)... The final problem might be found in your router, itself. Lots of commercial routers doled out by internet providers put their own junk in their hardware which gets in the way of would-be game hosts. Comcast, for example. The workaround for this is typically to buy your own router/modem or set your router to 'bridge mode' in its console, which uses the modem-only. It is recommended you only do the first two steps temporarily, to see if you can locate the issue, and drill-down from there if turning one or the other off completely solves the problem. The third and fourth options are fairly common as well, but might mean you're out of luck or at least stuck with spending some extra dough to get your server running. Note that JC and the team now host servers at very reasonable prices, when you're ready to launch your game. Until then, you really should be building/testing locally, anyway. Hope this helps!
  5. Game auditing. Whee! Our tutorial globals are looking good, thanks to the latest Intersect patch's seamless install... Now all we have to do is make sure what was written for them still makes sense. ;) 


  6. Hey gang - Back to working on A4C after one of our devs left (amicably) to work on his own stuff. Went through a rough patch myself this summer, but glad to be back from the dead. ;)

  7. Closed Beta Age of the Four Clans

    Quick update to say A4C's test realm is now running Intersect 4.7! We'll be updating the live version on DINOSAURMMO.COM this week!
  8. Closed Beta Age of the Four Clans

    DINOSAURMMO.COM - Try our PTR (updated 3/25/2017) AGE OF THE FOUR CLANS is an upcoming 2D MMO featuring a fantastic prehistoric setting. "The four Raptor clans of the ancient Earth always held an uneasy alliance with one another. After a meteor devastated the Deathclaw Clan and unleashed strange creatures upon the planet, truces were made in order to find answers and return the world to order. The slime, a bizarre life form which oozed forth from the impact site, quickly spread to all corners of Laurasia, mutating native species and trashing the delicate ecology everywhere it appeared - threatening a mass extinction of all life on Earth." For those of you who caught us the first time around, we've updated our servers from Skywyre to Intersect Beta2! The team is the same, with myself ("Coffee Raptor") and two others ("Reznor" and "Green") working to bring our little dinosaur game to life. As before, our goal is to keep this game as "clean" as possible when it comes to messing with the source. With the coming of the Intersect engine, we feel there are plenty of features built-in to allow for us to focus on content with minimal coding. Therefore, we hope the experiment of A4C will be a successful game built within a mostly-stock engine, and an example to other developers of all skill-sets to showcase what is possible with Intersect right out of the box. Server for the PTR is usually up (about 90%) we are a little on the laggy side, but hope to have better hosting as we get closer to a full release of the game. Classes: Media: Features we're working on: Unique characters and setting with further customization options as you progress Many classes to branch into - "Hidden" classes as well, opening new spells and abilities Arena games and rewards for playing them Quests to keep you going in a group or solo A growing and evolving storyline And more as we create!

  9. Not dead. Just busy. ;)

  10. In Memory of Lumiere

    Just got caught up on this news. How very sad and we can hope she rests in a place with no pain. Wonderful tribute, Sky.
  11. Test run of A4C Beta begins today! And by today I mean... hotfixes all weekend, most likely. ;3 Let's break stuff!

  12. The thread above is one of many discussions on this subject. You can absolutely utilize some sort of encryption when source is available, but there will always be a chance that people will access your files, regardless. Read through some of the treads on this forum about encryption and maintaining proper ownership of intellectual property for a long answer... Short answer - yes you can protect it, there will almost always be a way that people can get access to your files if they really want them, regardless, but game development is so inherently difficult and more than the sum of its parts that it shouldn't keep you up at night if someone takes your art and attempts to make a game of it. tl;dr: If you wanted to steal an artist's painting, you'd need to do more than just swipe their paints.
  13. WIP Starhaven

    Nice tidbit and definitely looking forward to seeing more!
  14. Quest Title bug in first map block ??

    Looks to me like your acceptance of a quest is causing an event named 'Quest Zihirli Sinekler Start Event" to *move* to the block where you are having the problem? Long story short, I am not convinced this is a bug. I think JC's answer is correct -- specifically on the *event* called "Quest Zihirli Sinekler Start Event", not the NPC which spawns it, you will need to check the 'Hide Name' checkbox. Also side note to your event -- where you have Conditional Branches setup to handle giving different quests to different levels, I would discourage you from setting the offers this way unless you mean to give different quests all at once to characters level 15 and above. It may also give you a looping error, since Conditional Branch is essentially an if/then statement. It would be odd for a computer to interpret a character as level 10 or above ELSE they are 15 and above. Since a character level 15 is also above 10, I think the event would never offer the 'Ilk Buyuk' quest, as it would determine the condition 'is level 10 a d up' fulfilled on the first branch, whether the character was 10 or 100, and end the process thereafter. Hope that makes sense! A better way to do it would be to set Spawn/Execution Conditions for level 14 or *below*, then a new *page* and that quest for level 15 or *above* etc.
  15. WIP DBZ Renaissance

    Nice layout, Gib! I like the idea of having everything at the bottom. You have given me something to think about with my own layouts. Kudos..!
  16. bossrinley.png


    Finished adding faces to the class upgrades. Got 3 "bosses" working. Gonna add some player switches to allow people to take on bosses in the arena at higher levels... not a ton more hard stuff to do, really, before Beta.

  17. Classic Hero Maker v0.1.5B

    Looking really good! I'm excited to try it, for sure.
  18. Intersect Beta 4.2 Released!

    Really cool. I'm going to launch the beta of my game on this version, end of next week. Things are working nice and I'm especially excited for all the work you guys did on events!
  19. Projectile

    Was able to replicate this in my own game and can confirm projectiles act like grappling hooks against blocked spaces. I would post this in bugs.
  20. Closed Alpha Ruinic - Competitive Dungeon Crawler

    This looks really great - the graphics, the layout, and the concept are all stand-out. Glad you picked it back up again!
  21. How to make a Level Up event?

    You can do that, as Kibbelz has said, in the Common Event Editor. Go into that, then: Down in the left hand side at the bottom, select "Level Up" as your trigger. In the Spawn/Execution conditions button, you can choose 'Level is'... Then 'Equal to'... and input '10'. Then you will write what you want to display on the player screen or chatbox in the commands field. You can also run a Conditional branch directly in the commands field. which checks if the player is 10, but those can get messy if you want multiple level up events. If this is specific to the player's class, which it seems to be, I would add another Spawn/Execution condition of 'Class is'... then select "Adenturer". If you want to get right to the point, you could even do 'Show options' to be prompted to change class, directly. However you do it, hope this helps.
  22. good.png

    Can confirm Intersect 4.1 is handling lag issues (brought on by my inability to write an event properly) better than any previous version of the software. ;) 

  23. Intersect Beta 4.1 Released!

    Congratulations! Can't wait to dig in!
  24. Various Dinosaur Sprites

    Hey guys -- I have occasionally been asked if I could share the dinosaur models I've created for A4C, and I'm only happy to. Thought I'd just post a thread. Here are some sprites for anyone looking to add some prehistoric NPCs: Enjoy!
  25. Various Dinosaur Sprites

    Terrific! I like games that have varied content. Naturally, I'll be adding more Dinos to A4C as it goes on. Will be happy to update this thread. Glad you guys like them so far!
