Re: IDEA: Slow Pill

Yes, exactly. It's in fact a little bit clumsy, and it should probably be possible to directly assign a CE action if a CE is collected (without a CE change, of course, as that CE has just been collected), but it works just as armanelgtron has described it. If you also want to design dedicated sounds...

Re: Write to a temp file 1st.

I'm only getting these crashes with R'n'D. Hm, OK... then it was misunderstanding. From reading the other thread (as linked to above), I had the impression that R'n'D was not the only program you encountered such crashes with, but that you get similar crashes with other programs. :? What puzzles me...

Re: Multiplayer tape playback bug with artwork resolution changes

Oops...! :shock:

I haven't tried to reproduce this so far, but I think you're right (and also that it probably happens in "both directions")!

I will further investigate and fix this! :o

Re: Write to a temp file 1st.

If you encounter lots of crashes that may be caused by bad memory (see other thread), trying to fix your system seems to be better than trying to work around the resulting data loss. :?

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

Attached is a zip of more crashes that have happened. Just had a quick look at them (not all, as they are too many) -- as far as I can see, it mostly happens in "malloc()" or "free()". For now (and as I had no reports of such crashes by other people so far, and R'n'D apparently runs fine on your se...

Re: Emerald Mine engine with all elements

No, I think this question hasn't been asked before. If you use the Emerald Mine engine, you can only use Emerald Mine (and Emerald Mine Club) elements in your levels. There are no plans to add more game elements to this game engine (especially not game elements already existing in the R'n'D game eng...

Re: Rockford Graphics for Custom Graphics

Yes, if somebody is doing a conversion of the Rockford levels for R'n'D, it should be perfectly possible to also use the graphics of that game. And it should then also be possible to use these graphics for other, already existing level sets as well, just like it can be done with other custom graphic...

Re: a suggestion for the editor

If I should ever add a native Boulder Dash engine, being able to replicate the graphical characteristics of the classic levels, including changing (or random) colors, would indeed be a great thing. :D For something like this to work, it would be required to have specifically crafted graphics where c...

Re: BD2K3 may or may not cause your game to break a bit.

I use Windows Could you please be a bit more specific? There's more than one version of Windows R'n'D runs on. :D I assume you are using WIndows 10 here, but maybe it could also be Windows 7 (or even Windows XP, who knows)... :) And R'n'D used was version 4.1.4.1, right? (I like to have the number ...

Re: BD2K3 may or may not cause your game to break a bit.

I have never seen BD2K3 crashing or "breaking" R'n'D, so I am very interested in what happened here. :? First of all, some questions: - which version of R'n'D did you use when you encountered these problems? - on which platform did you run the game (WIndows, Linux or Mac)? And some notes: Whenever y...

Re: IDEA: Adding more small varieties in the game.

Increasing the number of custom elements would be quite easy (changing a number in the source code and add some graphics definitions, which is also done more or less automatically by the build system). But I don't think that it's necessary -- 256 custom elements is already a little bit too much for ...

Re: Graphics problem under Arch Linux

Hm, this looks like both SDL_image and SDL_mixer are somehow broken on your system (SDL_image not being able to open PNG images, SDL_mixer not being able to open an audio device -- both warnings/errors are quite strange, as SDL_mixer really should be compiled with PNG support, and the PNG library sh...

Re: Graphics problem under Arch Linux

So more people will suffer from this bug, if other Distributions adapt this SDL-Version too. Definitely yes. It will affect all SDL programs that convert surfaces with color keys for transparency. :( Can't you produce an application image from Rocks'N'Diamonds so that it can be played directly from...
