Re: 4.2.0.0 Error on startup

Hi Holger

This isn't me. It's some dude from Spain with a username that's jm followed by a load of numbers. He doesn't put kisses at the end of his posts!

Cheers

Re: Trial of the Emerald: The ultimate skill test

Yo, SlappyHappy2000 I definitely wouldn’t scrap the whole level, just tweak the luck-based sections, as filbo says. I get what you’re saying about having to replace a room with a new section of exactly the same dimensions, which isn’t easy, but you could replace it with something like a maze of invi...

Re: IDEA: Respawn anchors / checkpoints

What? I had no idea this was possible. This is incredible news. The number of times I’ve played a level and either pressed one wrong key at the end, or killed a Yam only to discover that I should have dropped the rock on it at the bottom of its path as it created bombs as well as diamonds, which wer...

Re: Two player levelsets

Yo, SlappyHappy2000 Here's my feedback: Teamwork Tower: Love the tower concept and the look of the level. Some really good cooperative elements. Cell City: Love all the separate little rooms and the use of teamwork. Uneasy Transportation: Nice idea but the "double push" bit is too hard. Kept failing...

Re: Expert Mine 3 Level 78

Cool. I can't wait to try the new engine. There were quite a few levels that looked really fun but had to be skipped.

Cheers

Re: Expert Mine 3 Level 78

Hi Holger I'm really sorry and I'm an idiot but I switched off auto-recording a couple of years ago because I wasn't using it and it just seemed to be creating loads of files. Are there are particular levels it would be useful for me to redo (recorded this time)? Or would it help if I went through t...

Yo, SlappyHappy2000

Cool, that's good to know! Rather it's the level designer messing up than me!

Re: Trial of the Emerald: The ultimate skill test

Wow! What a level! Some amazing design. I've had a few goes (about 15-20 I think) and I've got as far as the bit with all the scissors. Now I have to stop playing before I fall too far behind on the snooker to be able to go to bed at a reasonable time! I WILL complete this level though, you mark my ...

Re: Expert Mine 3 Level 78

Hi Filbo Thank you - that's really helpful. It's comforting to know I wasn't doing something silly that caused me to be one emerald short. I'm now more confident that it's just an error in the level. I'm surprised, though, because the other 239 levels in the three Expert Mine sets are all solvable i...

Re: Expert Mine 3 Level 78

Yo, SlappyHappy2000

I'm all in favour of necroposting as it's better than the complete silence I've had until now!

Yes, that's the stage. I'm 99.14% certain it's not solvable.

Best wishes

Re: Two player levelsets

Yo, SlappyHappy2000 I can't wait to test these. Frustratingly, I couldn't yesterday or today because the charger on my laptop died and the replacement isn't coming until tomorrow. I'm using a work machine which is locked down to the point that I can't install anything on it. :-( I will play tomorrow...

Yo, SlappyHappy2000

Did my private messages reach you? I'm worried they didn't because they're only showing in my Outbox folder and not my Sent folder.

Re: Two player levelsets

Yo, SlappyHappy2000 Could you get it added to the collection of levels here: https://www.artsoft.org/rocksndiamonds/levels/ so that future players who are looking for two-player levels can download it? I really appreciate you doing this, and am pleased to hear you'll get enjoyment out of it. I'll pl...

Re: Two player levelsets

Hi Filbo I've had a look through a few randomly-selected Emerald Mines levelsets but they seem to have the one key, one exit door issues. Next time you come across one that works properly as a two-player levelset, I'd be most grateful if you could post its name. I'd be eternally grateful. Cheers Jamie
