D.D., Adventure Game Pro is a game engine that lets you take graphic files and sound files and put them together in a slide-show driven point-and-click adventure game. You don't create the files with this program, you just put them together to form the game. I downloaded a free version of it and it's really low-end, basic, low-tech, but it did the job for me. What are you using to program your game? BTW, unlike most people, I actually LOVE slider puzzles, so if you could throw one or two in I would be very happy.

Umm, I use Illuminatus 4.5 to do that, which is very easy to use, and is an excellent program, you can get the 30 day trail at www.digitalworkshop.co.uk

My memory is very vague, as I only did 1 or 2 slider puzzles in the past. What is a slider puzzle, name a game with some. (Don't say Shivers, as I've already heard someone say there were some in that game.)

Also, what do you guys think about Slide transitions? Do you think I should add them to the game? I think they look nice, but you guys might think it will take the realism out, or something, I was just wondering. Also, I am working on a web site now, to show some screen shots of the game and soon have a demo, because of working for so long, the game is going to come out sooner then I thought, probably Fall. The site is coming soon, I'll post here when it is ready...

A 'slider' is like one of those keychain games, (they make big ones too ) a lot of little interlocking squares, with one empty spot, and you slide the squares every which way to form a picture, or message, or sometimes just line up numbers or the alphabet. Lots of people confuse a jig-saw puzzle with a slider, but with a slider you can NOT pick up the pieces or rotate or turn them over to move them. You must, what else? SLIDE them around.

The most notorious I know of is the one at the end of the 'Mayan' world in TimeLapse. It had FOUR sliders in one frame, if you got one scene, it locked in place, so you had to work around that part to continue with the rest. Your space to work in got smaller and smaller. Soooo much fun!! lol

I got it now. I'll see what I can do. It'll be a hard task, I might not even be able to put one in the game...

My game is going great. I actually sent a screen shot to my best friend, and he said, "that's not your game! You have to be a professionaly to make that". LOL
