Re: "all but one exception"

Admittedly this solution is a but beyond my experience with R&D since there are a lot of named options in the pages I do not yet understand when programming CEs. So I am assuming the fix you prescribe is set on the same page as the arrow is told to disappear. I will check into this tomorrow and post...

Re: "all but one exception"

Yes, but this decreases the inventory so the player no linger know the number of shots they hae. The complexity of this goes deeper. I have three different colored enemies. I have three different colored arrows. Yellow kills yellow, green kills green, and purple kills purple. Let me use Y, G, P for ...

"all but one exception"

I am making shootable arrow. I want them to explode upon hitting eveything except themselves. Otherwise the shooting speed is limited to being slow b/c if the player accidentally hits the fire button twice quickly, the 2nd arrow blows up on the one already fired and the player is then killed. One wa...

Re: Does R&D work with El Capitan?

Thanks for this info. Last time I did an update to Yosemite there were issues which Holger kindly helped me to work out. Kind of funny only waiting to know if R&D will work before upgrading the whole system, but have to have proper priorities I guess :mrgreen:

Does R&D work with El Capitan?

I really want to update my OS X to El Capitan. The only thing stopping me is knowing if R&D (using 3.3.1.2) will run properly on it!

Anybody know?

when CE is made passable - it blocks enemies

How hard would it be to make it so that all objects/enemies could pass over a CE when the CE's passable option is selected? There are instances I would like this to happen. The best I have been able to do is to make it so when the CE is touched by something, the CE is changed into itself with a copy...

Re: Where have all of the R'n'D Fans Gone?

i was busy writing a reference book for the glass insulator hobby. I have used R&D off anf on for a break. The boo is finally done :) My problem is I have some very intricate levels with some new ideas, but I have built them with a modified BD2K3 set of graphics. I cannot post them b/c I need to mak...

possible bug?

I am not sure if this is a bug or not. The Yams and robots can be configured as "diggable" on page 2 of a CE, but beetles cannot be. I am making a missile that will be able to dig through clusters of enemies and leave bombs behind to clear a path. The only enemies that stop it in flight are the beet...

Re: How does R&D choose a default level set?

Done - it worked like it should have. Which means that its in my level set. The weird thing is that everything was fine in the last version while running Snow Leopard. Of course there may be one other thing to take into account. Remember you told me how that one cartoon anim (Bugs Bunny) was messed ...

Re: How does R&D choose a default level set?

Thanks for the new versions being posted! Downloaded - installed - ran - it loaded Niko Boehms tutorials. I loaded my levels - played first - died - quit R&D. Loaded R&D - it loaded Nik Boehm's Tutorials again! Looked for stdrr.txt - all hidden files visible (just in case) - cannot find the file! It...

How does R&D choose a default level set?

How do I get R^D to load my level set as the default set? Before my recent upgrading whenever I started R&D it would automatically be in the set I last stopped playing - and at that level. Now it always defaults to a tutorial level. I moved the tutorial levels folder out and R&D now defaults to "Bou...

Re: Hello guys.

Welcome Ruby!

I personally like the BD2K3 set for its graphics. It takes the look of the game to a new level.

Re: HELP! OS X Mavericks and R&D 3.3.1.0

Thanks for all the hard work, new version, and corrections Holger. Sorry I missed the OBVIOUS in the stderr.txt file. I am on meds and am not as sharp as I wish I was/used to be. I also need to brush up on computer skills I have let go over the years - I used to know my way around AMIGAdos pretty we...

Re: HELP! OS X Mavericks and R&D 3.3.1.0

FOUND IT! Holger,I do not know why, but the file L-Bugs_100X185.pcx messes up the load. I removed it and all is OK. I reloaded it into my grpahics program and it loads OK. So I duplicated it and saved it back on the appropriate level. It still makes the game crash and not load. Any ideas why? It sho...
