+1 for a point and click. My daughter (who’s 10) recently discovered point and click adventures on Steam, is obsessed with Thimbleweed Park. To us they may seem a bit old hat but to this generation they’re new and fresh.

Congrats on the release Erico too!   :good:

Im today finally tested this game on my Steam Deck.

This game is NOT combatible yet, but its does run, but covered up by the Media Player.

The issue is the same as im have on all my games, when using the MUSIC commands.

You need to convert them to samples and uses samples to play the music. You could also load all music in memory at once (as they was a sample), as we have so much memory today to avoid eventuelly delays under loading as well file space.

Yep, I need to do that to all my games currently using PLAYMUSIC.
Also update their page graphics e fixing some little bugs, most specially the support for 3 joysticks on BurgerLord.

That will require a bit of time, I don´t think I will be able to do it this year, also, about burger lord it is best I add a few more enemies and some extra 64 stages :)

im did only test this game. This should been a lesser issue me think. Its such a game that would been quite fun to play in a short session on a Steam Deck, like this one. You actuelly only need to get it work with a xbox controller. If your game dont support other controller, you can disable it, and let the deck remap it instead (when playing on a tv). Im do howover not tested this feature.

Im diddent seen any issues on the banners on this game at all? Im do really like the side banner on this one.

It works with the xbox controller as that is the one I have for testing.
I will see to update the games on steam early next year if possible.

Thanks for testing Spacefractal!

Ah yes, this game is pretty much very complete in its contents, just the music issue you raised needs attention.

Lovely game and beautiful graphics! Works on my i3 fine, but for some reason it won't run on my Macbook M1 (running Parallels). When trying to start from Steam or the exe file nothing starts up. Probably not a big issue as will only be a small minority of users playing on Macs but thought it might be useful feedback.

Mac using Parallels is something that is not officially supported. No idea what my own games does. Can been a similar issue with the music, trying to launch a apps that does not exists and fails?

Can you test one of my own game, if this is the case? (im fixed all my games removing the music and using samples instead, so its works on Steam Deck).

Thanks Loftcat. That feedback is important. A bunch of users do use parallels to run my games and as far as I knew things were going ok.
I hope it is something related to music but Gravedigger EX uses playmusic too and I had no complains. Could it be because of the fullscreen? The said game is windowed.

The more successful of my games sell something like 150 copies so every user counts a lot.
Hopefully one day I will break the 1000 barrier :)

I don't think it's because it's full screen. I use GLBASIC in Parallels every day without any major issues, and my games run okay.
Dreamerman's BR Logic Pack (https://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=11193.0) is working well under Parallels too.
I tried running the exe as administrator from the steamapps folder too but to no avail.
Let me know if there's any else simple you'd like me to try.

Sure! Thanks for your time.
Here are 2 of them on itchio:

https://ericomont.itch.io/ptvii
https://ericomont.itch.io/mrulv246-hadleys-hope

Just hit download, unzip and run.
They should work fine and they use PLAYMUSIC.

I will PM you keys to both my Steam games, they also use PLAYMUSIC.
Maybe this will bring more light into the issue of Parallels.
