Replay/On-Demand Scene Playing
« on: March 16, 2019, 03:09:36 am »

Is there any way to play a scene without having to start the whole game again and reach it, or save beforehand? I've tried running the Hardman event through the debugger, but the best I can get with that is it crashing after the first two CGs of Sierra with
Code: [Select]
NativeEvents\RUN_TEST_EVENT.ve.xml [EXEC] caused an exception at operation SeqAct_PersonLocation (ID: 105).
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
And it only gets that far if I run the debug straight from the launcher instead of while a game is running.
If there is currently no way, I understand that as much as that would be a great feature, it would be WAY too much work to implement, so don't take this as a demand for the feature. I'd just like to know if there is a way, or if I should just make sure to stay hyper-vigilant with the savefiles.

No there's not.  It is a feature I'd like to see in the game as well.
But, you're right, that'd be quite a lot of work.  More than I have time for ATM.

So, in the mean time... you have to rely on saves.
As an aside, I find saving once a day (with 3 saves) and my own (much less frequent) manual cycling of 3 saves works well.
With manual saves after any major event and/or sequence of actions.

That's of course possible.  Question is more one of priorities.

One of the things I've been doing is basically a rewrite of each main story-line
And, as part and parcel of that, making it so 'special' sex scenes are ongoing
-  i.e. so you can repeat sex scenes with the special characters, even after their quest is complete

So far I've done that for Annette, Bells, Hooter, Perrier / Fuda, Titsbig and Keller
-  And works in progress are Coppers, Hardman, Underwood and Your neighbor
-  Just as an aside, when I redid the Smith story, I simply decided it wasn't a fit (story wise)

So... all in all (once the current WIPS are done) the ability to repeat scenes for most characters will be there.
-  And, as another aside, other WIPs are expansion of some of the ones already done (adding more sex scenes / positions)


What Enroch's asking though (as I read it) is the ability to skip back within the current event.
- Purpose being not so much to just replay a scene.  But rather, to unwind a decision you've made and choose another path.
- Which is a different kettle of fish entirely
- And on that, from my POV:  I'd like to see that in the game as well.
- But (for mutiple reasons) it's much lower down my priority list.

This is all great news. Do I understand it correctly when I assume that  Parker's questline doesn't need a rewrite or has that already happened and I just didn't notice?
It's good to see all this work going in.

Hmmm... no I just forgot about Nina (and her story is one of the biggest code wise).

Yes...  I did rewrite Parker as well.  :D
And like Smith, revisiting the sex scenes doesn't fit the story there.
