Notes for the web version of TOTDC

If you use the IE and want save/load double click runit.cmd. This should start the server and the IE automatically. To stop the server activate the window and press a key.
It requires Firefox version 22 or later and IE version 9 or later. Haven't tested other browsers yet, but it uses afaik only standard web APIs, as long as they are supported we should be good.

    1. Oh, damn, I'll try to pass this along to the person who's helping me with the web version. did you try opening the console (in the folder, right-click+shift and select "open command window" and then type runit.cmd in the console?

    1. Links are on the sidebar. Are you browsing using a phone? I think that might keep the sidebars from showing up.

    1. You are welcome. The blog design probably leaves much to be desired, so you probably aren't the only one to blame here. ;p

  4. The web version for TOTDC and the Download link for the RAGS version don't seem to be working. Would love to play TOTDC hope you can help.

    3. Well, as long as you can play the game, then everything is fine. :)

      The web version is not perfect (I needed extensive help from someone to even get it to work), but at least it's an option, and the game should work without any major issues.

    1. The game has a RAGS version and a web version (which should work with your browser). To play the RAGS version, you should download version 2.4.14 (available among the links on the side). That is, if we are talking about TOTDC.

  6. I decided that it would be better to switch to commenting here rather than on your Patreon. Having decided that RAGS looked far too complicated and initially tried to get the game to work with Chrome, I've now switched to IE 11, and have made a little progress, in that as well as displaying jag.html the music plays. However the controls aren't working. When I look in the window that runnit.cmd is running in, I see that there are a couple of 404 error messages - presumably from the browser indicating file not found - the first apparently for the folder in which jag.html etc live (but I know the browser's found jag.html as it's displaying it) and the second the file favicon.ico. Well, it's quite right as there is no such file anywhere in the folder or in its subfolders. Any ideas? TIA.

    1. I am playing with Firefox and found no problem (I opened the jags.html file with the browser). Maybe try that one, if the browser is an issue. Also, to interact with stuff have you tried right-click or double click? That's how most things work.

    2. I'm an idiot! Right-click worked. I suppose it's not something that I'm used to doing in a browser. Thanks.

    3. No problem! Glad it wasn't a big issue. ^_^

    4. It's a lot of fun. The interface is a bit clunky, but from what you've written about it I was expecting that.

      And now I've spotted Blanked, which I'll play when I've finished with this.

    5. Although now I see that it's another RAGS game, which is a bit off-putting.

    6. Glad to hear you found it fun! ^_^

      Yeah, all of my old games used RAGS. I wasn't expecting it would become a hassle to run, back then. Maybe I should contact the person who helped me with TOTDC, and see if he'd be willing to do the same with the other 2 games.
