Updating Graphic Adventure Creator aka Grac

From Amigawave and Goblins group we are updating the public source of Grac editor and player since few months. Actually we are using it and testing with our RetroWars game and our next release. When we finish some updates of the source we publish it for all amiga community with source.

We are working in two ways ; first fix some bugs in the source, second add new features.

Until now we update some rutines for make translations to other languages easy, add a command to load and unload .mod files form memory at any time of the game, auto save feature, and some other fix of source.

Our idea is release an updated Grac 3 for help amiga users to make his own graphic adventures focused to work with all Amiga, this means make hard work to do it work with the standard of Amiga 500. Add AGA feature is not our goal for now. When we finish it , it's possible that we try recreate a similar tool with most modern tools like Amiblitz or similar.

I forget say that the maker app and tools will be to do the work in the Amiga computer, not using high level tools for PC or Mac. We want that you work hard and enjoy with your Amiga´s and if you can use a real Amiga and no emulated, you'll enjoy more creating your own game.
Actually we dev our games with an Amiga 600 and MorphOS machine, and use a plain A500 with 512Kb chip and 512Kb Slow/fast with Gotek to test games.

I like Epsilon 9, which is probably the last game made in GRAC by E.W. Clay. It is almost perfect point n click adventure, but it lacks sound and music. I do not know if original GRAC doesnt allow it, but if you manage to add sound capabilites to GRAC games, it would be wonderful.

Be ready, Retrowars have music in-game and support sound effects at the same time, but we want update current player routine or player, actually is not possible use "fine tune" option in protracker modules.

E.W. clay is the original author of Grac code.

Now thinking that an beguiner guide or the manual in different languages will be a good idea.

I'm suppose that he lack of music in epsilon9 was to try to work with only 512Kb of ram.

If an English manual or beginners guide already exists, I could help translating it in French.
Just let me know.
