poking around the project.aon forums, I discovered someone has created an
online application to automate playing of lone wolf gamebooks. This means no
more stat and item keeping, looking up numbers on tables, rolling dice or
long drawn out combats.
In fact it would make the Lonewolf series function essentially like the
fighting fantasy project stuff.
For a long while there has been a java application called 7th sense which
does this, however sinse I can't read anything with Hal above the title,
it's a bit of a none starter, ---- especially as while some Java
applications can be incredibly screen reader friendly, when they're not,
they're not! and nothing short of a complete rewrite will fix them.
So, I was intreagued to here about this online version. The only trouble is
it apparently uses the Ms silverlight web addon.
I've heard a couple of bad things about silverlight, ---- but is this
dependent upon the webpage and design, or implicitely part of silverlight
Being as the Lw books are already html text, I'd theoretically assume all
Silverlight would need to do is handle all the backgrounds stats etc, ----
but is this wrong?
have other silverlight driven projects proved utterly impossible?
Any information would be appreciated.
