Oh...I forgot. Can the non-graphic data in Scallywag be modded with .txt files (a la SE IV)?

Yes, the game can be modded in a text editor via config files. What exactly, how much and other sort of details are still being hashed out, but the modding possibilities and capabilities are very extensive even at a preliminary stage. Ease of modding was, as far as I understand, one of the design criteria.

Edi,

Thanks for the info! I tried to d/l the demo...no success...Do you know how much will it cost (in USD) upon release?

No, and that is not for me to say even if I did. Basically the things to do with the beta are not public, but generic answers to questions like the modding issue can be given since they do not compromise anything and are beneficial.

So, for any detailed questions, the answer is likely to be "No comment" unless the developers themselves decide to answer them.

Quite understandable. Thanks for the quick info!

To quote some information which has already been released....

Quote:
If
players ever do reach a point that they think they've seen everything the game has to offer
thanks to RAGe, they haven't!

RAGe stands for Random Adventure Game engine, and is included with Scallywag: In
the Lair of the Medusa. RAGe allows full modding capability without any programming
experience. Literally everything in the game can be altered with RAGe, allowing not only
whole new adventures for Rapius, but totally new games. Change the graphics, items,
magic, music, everything. All it takes is creativity and time.
Quote:
Our second main goal was that Scallywag should be highly moddable without any
programming skills.
Other than that I can only verify that it is all true.

Sorry to bug ya guys about Linux again, but I read again about this game over at the rec.games.roguelike.development newsgroup and I thought, hey, cool, if the graphical requirements are minimal maybe it will run under Wine? If so I'd be interested in signing up for the beta - I could always help out with the "making sure it still IS capable of running under wine" - I believe that's one form of regression testing? Never hurts to reach out to a wider gaming audience!
