COWCAT, it does not work for me on Opera 12.17. Just black screen saying "WebGL is Required to run this application" frown
I know, that browser of mine is outdated now. But no other is comfortable like it.

It worked great for me, Cowcat. Is there supposed to be a FPS=59, 60 etc. in the upper left?


Yes, that's a test version. Looks like it's working fast on your computer!

It's playing for me also. I too have a FPS=31,30,29.....
I played on a Surface Pro 3


Good, I wasn't certain it would work OK on a tablet!

Yes it requires WebGL, and it's only supported on the most recent versions / browsers.
HTML5 is still kinda new so that's not very surprising, the latest stable Opera version is 31.0.
In that case you can still play the offline demo : http://www.demetriosgame.com/en/demo/

(Which is better anyway, I made the HTML5 version so people can play it more quickly without having to install it)

But Opera 12.17 does support WebGL and HTML5! WebGL Rubik's Cube works fine for me.
Version 12.17 is the latest 'real' Opera unfortunately. Opera 15 and further is a kind of Chrome.

In that case it's weird, it's probably Game Maker that doesn't detect it properly. I don't have a control over this.
But in any case, the HTML5 version is only for the demo. I had to make some sacrifices to make it run (lower res, more compressed, loadings...)
The best version is still the downloadable version wink

I might need some help!

Is anyone interested to help with proofreading? smile

As you may know, I'm French, and my English isn't perfect. I would like someone to do a proofreading of my Kickstarter page and the game demo text.

I can offer a little money (though don't expect a lot, I'm on a budget - but we can discuss that!)

So, anyone?

I can officially announce that Demetrios will be launched on both Kickstarter AND Steam Greenlight on October 6th smile (next month!)

http://www.demetriosgame.com/images/comm/logokssmall.jpg

If you'd like to support it already, I have created a ThunderClap for that!
https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/31397-demetrios-on-kickstarter

If you don't know what ThunderClap is, it allows to gather support from people in order to post an automatic message at a specific date on their Facebook/Twitter (for example when my Kickstarter will be live!)

Time flies by so quickly! smile

The Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight launches that I've planned for months will finally happen in a few days!
Both pages will be online simultaneously on October 6th - which is next tuesday.


For that occasion, I've been preparing an updated demo of the game (v1.3). This takes account of all the feedback I've had so far!

-----------------------------
CHANGES SINCE 1.2 :
-----------------------------
- HTML5 version of the demo available!

You can now run the demo directly in your browser! See here on the site : http://www.demetriosgame.com/en/demo/

- New Bjorn and Sandra expressions!

Despite my game being a Point & Click, the Ace Attorney series had quite a big influence on it!
And this is why pretty much every character in the game will have several animated expressions!


- Cookies are bigger and easier to find!

Most people found that cookies were a very interesting concept. They're hidden on screens and you need to find them to get in-game hints. So it's kinda like an optional game in the game!

However, they were a bit TOO well hidden. So I have resized each of them about 1.5 to 2 times.


Also, there's a new cookie counter, which gives you how many cookies are left to find in each room! This should make the search more attractive smile


- English and French texts have been proofread

English isn't my native language, and Draclvr from here has been kind enough to proofread the game text. There should be way less mistakes now smile

Another adventure game fan also did the French text proofreading - even though I'm French, I still make some spelling mistakes razz

- Corrected windows interfaces to make them prettier

Some of them had been very quickly done for the first prototype, and I never changed them. Now it looks better and more professional!



- Corrected fonts for french and spanish characters

Accented language-specific characters would not display. I had to modify the TTF font manually to make them appear!
Finding good-looking copyleft fonts is very difficult, and fonts with support for every language is next to impossible!
I didn't want to revert back to basic fonts like Arial or Verdana, so this was pretty much the only solution.

- Improved game performance

I've added a cache for dialogs and translations texts when changing room, so they're not loaded at every room switch. This makes for a much smoother experience! Now changing room is near-instant on modern computers!

- Improved hotspots view (prettier and texts don't overlap anymore)


- Automatic framerate detection

The game will run at 60FPS or 30FPS according to your computer abilities! This is detected during the game startup.
Frameskip is managed manually in the game engine (all the variables related to speeds like timers are doubled at each step)

If you'd like to try the new demo, it's available on my site : http://www.demetriosgame.com/en/demo/


NB : I've noticed you've progressively removed pictures from my posts, what is allowed exactly? Only pictures below 20KB, is that it?

Cowcat, yes, only pics under 20k. If you notice even the official announcements I make do not have visible screens in them.

Well, already 44% reached in about one day! I think this is on the right track smile

Keep the support coming though! smile Thank you!

NB : Any chance the staff could write a news about the Kickstarter / Greenlight? Or at least post the trailer?

Thank you Ana! I've just sent you a message! smile

Still going great! Kickstarter is now 61% funded!!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/983902887/demetrios

I've written an article comparing the old version of Demetrios with the remake! I think some of you may be interested smile

I would post here but without the pictures, it would be hard to read, so I invite you to read the article on my site!
