You didn’t say whether it’s possible to export data to common formats such as plain text, PDF, and/or Word? Without at least some export options, the software is dead on arrival.

Hi TightBeam, I didn’t say anything because we were documenting on the Lua scripting parts.

Why are you so critical about us?

Plain-Text is straight-forward. There is a shooter which allows drag and drop into Plain-Text.

For PDF, did you see EccoExt export to PDF??

For exporting, there is export to RTF HTML and PDF via templates.
You specify a pre-made template and StoryServer will fill-in the blanks.

Hm, Lua scripting sounds interesting.

I think the reason people are sounding - from your perspective, disappointingly - sceptical is that your approach is somewhat unusual.

You’re clearly lovers of the original Ecco, otherwise you’d never have spent the time you obviously have recreating the program; right down to the now rather old-fashioned interface.

But apart from a teasing screenshot, you’ve provided no real details of the program, except in response to doubtful queries. Doubtful, because to be perfectly honest, we do occasionally experience trolling on this forum, and I suspect many readers formed the impression right at the start that you were simply another troll trying to bluff Ecco enthusiasts into accepting a non-existent app as a genuine reincarnation.

Except that it appears you really have created a genuine reincarnation! And that it may not be a bluff at all! However, the details you’ve provided are still very limited, so people are still suspicious. That’s the only reason you’re hearing such apparently negative feedback - people suspect a bluff, and so far you haven’t provided enough information to persuade them otherwise.

I tell you what: why not invite forum members to take part in a beta programme? That would sort out the sheep from the goats…

We look forward very much to seeing the product in its final form, in any case.

Best of luck!
Bill

If you’re referring to this article we’ve recently posted:

There’s more coming - machine-level variables, startup scripts, new task dialog support and more!

Dang, so lurking under that old-fashioned exterior is an interesting, new-fangled engine!
