rather than repete myself several times, answer each and every e-mail at
once, etc I have now eelected to begin answering multiple questions in
the format of one e-mail a day.I'll cross post it to both lists so
everyone gets the same info at once.
Will the game run if I run it from a limited account? I will of course do
the installation using an account that has administrative privileges.
Yes, but if you are using limited accounts you need to install it to
your local user account directly. Since you mentioned Windows XP you
might install it to some place like
c:\Documents and Settings\Prannav\USA Games\Tomb Hunter I
so XP gives you full rights and privlages on everything.
Under Vista and Windows 7 you would do the same thing by installing to
c:\Users\Prannav\USA Games\Tomb Hunter I
which is the same thing, but doing it the Vista/Windows 7 way.
i'm going to do a translation to portuguese of the game if you allow me.
of course it don't will be good as the english is bekause i don't have
actualy good female voices to do that, i'll just record all in sapi.
can you suggest some program that hmm, will help me in doing that? for
example, a program that i write something, and it's converted to wav
with the voice or something like it.
for example, what you used to record all the speech?
Yes, we use Text Aloud to do this. It is available for $29 USD from
and if you are willing to do the work for a language pack we are willing
to post it for our foreign speaking players.
Could the screen reader be running in the background rather than being
as just putting JAWS to sleep instead of unloading it from memory?
Yes. One of the features of the Genesis Engine is it will disable
DirectInput when the game Window does not have focus. This allows you to
use Hal, Jaws, Window Eyes, etc to perform other tasks without closing
I'm mildly curious as to the lack of encryption on this title's audio
while in beta.
Given that it's been released in public beta, and that this product
to generate capital, I'm quite surprised at your decision not to
encrypt the game
data in one form or another.
While we know there is a potential risk of leaving our sounds and music
unencrypted we also feel there should be some freedom to modify the game
for personal use. For example, if someone speaks a native language other
than English it is only fair that they could record all the speech files
in there native tongue and replace the wav files with the ones in their
language. Also as this is a spin off of Tomb Raider we also think people
should be able to copy Tomb Raider sounds, music, into the game and play
it that way if they want. I don't care as long as they are not steeling
our sounds and music for commercial use.
how does having a weapon out stop me jumping?
Lots of good reasons here. Basically, a heavy weapon would drag you
down, throw you off balance, or if you neded to grab a ledge or
something to break your fall your hands would be full. Rule of thumb is
just to holster it an have your hands free.
what is the difference now in the difficulty levels?
Wellk, we are still working on it. Right now torches don't last as long,
enemies are harder to kill, better scoring, etc. We are still working
out the details on this.
