Hi everyone, I have been playing around with Maniac Mansion Starter and have noticed I can not get other Characters other then Michael and Jeff to talk, for example I have added Mark and Wendy as NPC and they do not talk even when I use the same code that's used on Jeff, can anyone give me some direction please or is their a tutorial?

I was never that familiar with the MMS. I didnt make it, nor ported it to PaC-DK myself. Isnt the talking just a simple 2 image animation of the head? Do the other characters have those frames?

Hi Zimond, I just worked it out, turns out the Characters I wanted to talk were missing the talk animations so they just remained static, I'm really embarrassed now that I did'nt work it out sooner.

I really appreciate your reply, some of the characters have talking animations and some don't but the images are their for the talking they just have to be placed inside,

I really love Point and Click Development Kit, its such a great engine!
