City of Blood

Hi Alex,
I just tested the game City of Blood. The first command is evaluated correctly, but then no other command returns any output. I tested it online and offline. Perhaps you can have a look at it

The author of the game has reported this problem too - I will take a look into it (unless anybody else wants to have a go at debugging :D)

Since I wrote it I can't seem to find the bug as of yet. Since no one else has suggested this and I really would like people to play my game until I can debug it, then you can play it as follows:

1 Download Quest 4.1.5 from this site and install it (it plays alongside Quest 5).
2 Download the City of Blood.cas file.
2 Right mouse click the City of Blood.cas file and go to Properties.
3 Click the Change button.
4 If Q4 Quest.exe is not on the list, click Browse and find it in the C:Program Files/Quest/ then double click on it and highlight it.
5 Click Apply and then OK.

Now all .cas files are assigned to play on the Quest 4 player and not the Quest 5 player and my game should now work.

:oops: Sorry to those I'm patronizing with these instructions but considering (at this moment) 275 online plays will get you nowhere compared to 59 offline downloads, it seems that a few might not be heeding my warning in the game description and probably giving up too quickly and not playing it offline.

I've just this morning uploaded Quest 5.1.1 which fixes the bug, and I've just deployed it to "play online" too, so this should be fixed now.

The reason the bug occurred in Quest 5.1.0 and earlier was to do with the "dontprocess" command - it will stop Quest from running any more commands. From what I could see, you're using it in an "after each turn" script. It appears in the editor as "Don't process the player's command", but you don't need to use it in an "after each turn" script as it should only have any effect in a "before each turn" script anyway.

Thanks, Alex. I was going to reprogram it in Quest 5 if you couldn't find what was wrong. Luckily, I found a few grammatical errors that needed fixing when I looked at the ASL script. It works fine now , thanks again.
