3D Cinemas

Continuing from our in-game conversation, all you do is check the clothing options in any cinemas you find for 3D glasses and then add the cinema's wiki page to 3D Cinemas. So far I have been keeping track of cinemas with this and this. I was debating on placing the template in the Template space, but since it's not completed I haven't. Feel free to edit it if you want to add cinema locations. --Klexur 04:45, 24 October 2012 (BST)

Okay-dok. Which suburbs do you (and I) want to do? --  AHLGTG 00:24, 25 October 2012 (BST)
These suburbs have no cinemas and therefore need not be checked:
Barrville, Dartside, Darvall Heights, Dunningwood, Eastonwood, Gibsonton, Greentown, Grigg Heights, Judgewood, Ketchelbank, Pegton, Penny Heights, Pescodside, Ridleybank, Williamsville, Wyke Hills
These have already been found to have 3D glasses so we could skip checking them for now:
East Boundwood, Gatcombeton, Lerwill Heights, Pashenton, Quarlesbank, Rhodenbank, Roftwood, Roywood, Ruddlebank, Shuttlebank, West Grayside, Whittenside, Yagoton
That just leaves the rest of Malton, except the northern edge which I walked through once and the cinemas were either ruined or non-3D. I really need to recruit more people to help with this considering how large an area it is to search. --Klexur 15:41, 25 October 2012 (BST)
I could start with the SW corner, and work my way east. --  AHLGTG 16:15, 25 October 2012 (BST)
Thanks, that'd actually be a big help. --Klexur 16:58, 25 October 2012 (BST)

Apparently, ruined buildings prevents any clothing items to be found, so this will be more difficult than I thought, with all the generators, fuel, and ammo I'll need.--  AHLGTG 21:01, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I found that out the hard way when I started. I didn't think to mention things like that. Sorry. =S --Klexur 02:32, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

I feel bad that you've been making so many updates and I haven't. It's hard finding a revive in some of these deserted suburbs. I don't know how you manage it. --Klexur 04:57, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

I have a very (im)polite revive me note on my zombie profile. That must be it. --  AHLGTG 05:02, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
If it has the word 'Bitch' in it, then I approve. A ZOMBIE ANT 13:00, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
No bitch, but idiot. --  AHLGTG 15:24, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

I checked cinemas in Brooksville and most of the South Blythville (only Bennet Cinema isn't checked. I was going through recent changes, with aid of pure boredom it felt like good idea. If you don't belive me you can go and double check it - all cinemas in area are caded. --Labla 16:45, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Just checked Bennet. Nothing three dimensional happening. Everything is 2D. The lack of height is uncomfortable on my stature. --  AHLGTG 23:58, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

A question...

I've posed this question before, but with all the wiki game work you've done, you might know an answer. Is there a way through a link to edit a page? I really, really want to make single click updates for buildings (you click on safe, ruined, etc and then just click submit), but I don't know how or if it's possible to add text to the edit box (I'm pretty sure there is a way to do so with the subject line, but that doesn't help). You seem like quite the wiki... um, gnome, and I thought you might have some suggestions on the matter. --K 23:18, 25 April 2013 (BST)

If I remember correctly, InputBox allows you to have pre-set/pre-loaded (automatically placed) text/code in the edit box when you create a page. (This is to help out newbies; I don't know about already-existing pages.) I also remember you could remove the search field and just have a named button, such as "Safe" or "Ruined". We don't have this extension and we're not getting it. (I asked.) I know Klexur managed to have a template pop-up automatically, but yeah, that doesn't help. I'm pretty sure this requires an extension, so no luck. Sad --  AHLGTG 23:39, 25 April 2013 (BST)

Bejebus.

You probably get this a lot, but your little 'game' entertained me. I should have been asleep as of 4 hours ago, but I have no regrets having tried to navigate your little world. (Keep the amazing work up.) -- Chirurgien  (talk 18:29, 26 April 2013 (BST)

Aw thanks! I will. --  AHLGTG 20:35, 26 April 2013 (BST)

SitReps

Just wanted to mention that I enjoy reading most of the things you write, which remarkably enough includes the danger reports you post :p

That is all. PB&J 23:00, 28 May 2013 (BST)

Thanks. I try to make myself entertaining to myself. --  AHLGTG 23:04, 28 May 2013 (BST)
A rare, but oh so enjoyable mindset. I try to provide information on one hand and additional entertainment on the other, and as much as I can in character, but maybe I should try combining them as well :) PB&J 23:07, 28 May 2013 (BST)
If you had only one hand, you'd be forced to combine them. Or maybe you'd be missing just one part. A third hand, I'm not so sure. --  AHLGTG 23:16, 28 May 2013 (BST)
What if I were an octopus? PB&J 23:21, 28 May 2013 (BST)
Then you would have suction cups. --  AHLGTG 23:22, 28 May 2013 (BST)
Yes, but would I be able to act out all my alter ego's? PB&J 23:23, 28 May 2013 (BST)
I suppose if you could contort your octopus arms into puppet shapes, then yes. --  AHLGTG 23:27, 28 May 2013 (BST)
What if one of my alter-ego's is an octopus? PB&J 08:43, 29 May 2013 (BST)
Then you're a mutant. --  AHLGTG 22:52, 29 May 2013 (BST)
Would that change how you think about me? PB&J 03:36, 23 June 2013 (BST)
Don't think so, no, probably not. --  AHLGTG 13:15, 23 June 2013 (BST)

Minigame comments

Hey! I'm starting to play your minigame in the hotel. I noticed one thing so far: here it says "The dead bring snap wooden panels over the windows..." Am I just having trouble parsing the sentence, or are there two verbs there? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:19, 23 June 2013 (BST)

It's a typo. Thanks. It's nice having more than three eyes. DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE? --  AHLGTG 02:24, 23 June 2013 (BST)
One more - in this spot and its equivalent spots in the other pathways (at least the couple I checked), the sentence "None no specific as a knock" appears, which I think should be "None as specific as a knock" or something like that? And I assume it's a joke about me wearing glasses... Bob Moncrief EBDW! 19:51, 23 June 2013 (BST)
I'm not sure about that one. It does sound fine to me. That 'as' is an adverb, and there's such a thing as an adverb 'no'. (In a not-really-the-same-sentence such as this: they were no more able to perform the task than I was.) I don't know. I might go through and rewrite it later. --  AHLGTG 01:27, 24 June 2013 (BST)
The problem is that it's not being used as an adverb. In your example, "no more" modifies "were". In the one Bob cited, "no specific" modifies "none", which makes no sense. "None so specific" could be used instead, but it'd have a meaning contrary to what you intended. Likewise, "as" would have the same problem. Aichon 02:14, 24 June 2013 (BST)

grue 4 you?

A little inspiration for you? ~Vsig.png 19:42, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry ;_;

Hello there! I apologise for not asking for permission before setting up the mini-game I've been working on (as well as for flooding Recent Edits for it. I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate and love your stories, and your work on making UDGame templates. I've added credits to you on the attribution link on each page; please do let me know if you wish to be credited in a specific way, though! -- Unpax pax. Unslave slave. Unknow power. BB watch you. (stalk · KT · FoD · UT) 00:11, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

No worries, you don't need permission. Have fun though! --  AHLGTG 15:16, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Speak/Graffiti

Hello again. Is there a way to include the speak and graffiti functions for custom-made in-game Urban Dead templates?

Trying to replicate the current in-game visuals as much as possible, while still adapting them for the new style I have in mind.

If you want to check it out: Linkage. I could use feedback.

Thanks!-- TheBardofOld 18:02, 28 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi. Functionally, can't have a speak/graffiti action. It'd work out similar to Zork. But it's possible visually:

I like marshmallows.Speak

(Haven't put this together into a template.) Your suburbs are cool. I figured it would be fun to have temporary cities that would cycle through, alongside the Malton gameplay. Sort of like Monroeville and Borehamwood except not just Monroeville and Borehamwood. --  AHLGTG 23:25, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

A modified InputBox could be a way to go, but Kevan isn't up to adding these sorts of things. --  AHLGTG 23:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks...

...for catching this. I oftentimes copy/paste things temporarily, and I must've accidentally copied that one without cutting it. Or at least that's my story that I'm sticking to. Quite embarassing (to have been caught so quickly). :P Aichon 04:48, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm on to you, you. Tongue :P --  AHLGTG 01:05, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Demotions

Sorry for the delay, was madly busy at the beginning of May and must have overlooked your request. I'm asking for the necessary confirmation, and am doing so on your talk page additionally as you have probably mail notification turned on. -- Spiderzed 11:28, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I've responded there. --  AHLGTG 22:43, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Your policy passed & Changes made

Hi AHLG! I just wanted to congratulate (and thank) you on the A/RE and A/BP changes policy passing. I've gone through and made all the changed I can think of effected by the new policy, but I wanted to let you know I've made a list of changes on the policy talk page, if you'd like to go over them and make sure I haven't missed anything/messed anything up. There are a couple unclear points remaining, on A/BP vote tiebreakers and what to do with Sysop Check. Thanks again! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 17:42, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll take a look. --  AHLGTG 19:11, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Your game

I've enjoyed your game in the past and I stumbled on this today User:A_Helpful_Little_Gnome/School2CN1Read. I mean thank you it's cool to have my name in there even if unexpected lol. :D Also sorry if I broke anything haven't used the wiki in ages. Thanks again.--ZIPO/Talk/◆◆/CAPD 13:25, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Awe, thanks! You're right next to Kevan, apparently. Surprised anyone reads out those lists. And nothing's broke! --  AHLGTG 23:38, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
