Blue emerald

Hello Only a minor (and purely aesthetic) request, but would it be possible for a blue-coloured emerald to be added to the level editor please? This might seem like a strange thing to ask but, in four-player games, all players can have a key that matches their colour, but only the red, yellow and gr...

Re: Contributions 1998 Ben Braithwaite level 50

Thanks filbo and thanks armanelgtron.

I got exactly the same issues as you, filbo, with being one dynamite short. Loved the gif, armanelgatron, and thank you for the explanation of the game's behaviour.

Cheers

Re: Expert Mine 3 Level 78

Hi chaps

This level is now solvable using the new engine. It was down to the bugs exploding within chains of bombs and whether the created emeralds are destroyed by the explosions or not.

I can now tick 'Complete Expert Mine 3 level 78' off my bucket list.

Cheers

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.2.0.3 released!

I know I'm a month late but I just popped my wraparound cherry and it was amazing. There were loads of levels in the 'Into the...' series by El & Vic that I couldn't complete because of this feature that I am now revisiting. That's my weekend sorted.

Love to everyone.

Re: Server for playing levels / levelsets

Yeah, I'm fully behind this idea too, although I appreciate it might be a huge amount of work to set up. I've actually turned a few levelsets into three player versions (to play with my children who are big R'n'D fans) by adding extra keys, exits etc. There's not much demand for this kind of thing b...

Re: Emerald Mine II level 73 solvable

Hi Digit89 You git! I can't believe you just made me play the most tedious level ever designed! Looks pretty impossible to me bro. I mean, the level's just endless zigzagging along one possible path collecting dirt and emeralds. It's not like there's much to overlook. I'd say unsolvable and guess th...

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

Yeah, Leo's my favourite level designer. I've now completed all of his and, like you, couldn't locate the Pyramid levels. Do you have any other levelsets you would recommend? Ones along the lines of Expert and Exception and Into the <whatever>?

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

Those were exactly the same ones I skipped and for the same reasons. The exception is level 56 where I have a score in the hall of fame so it looks like I've completed the level. Inexplicably, my tapes for levels 34-58 are missing but the others are there. I've played 56 again a few times tonight an...

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

Hi Filbo

Same problem here mate. Finished Exception 2 tonight, coincidentally. Skipped 72 because I could only access a small part of the outer edge. Is this the wraparound thing?

Re: Trial of the Emerald: The ultimate skill test

So, having recently learnt that you can save and load your progress in a level, I decided to go back to this level tonight and I've completed it. Incredible level. One of the best ever.

Re: EMC wraparound off-by-one bug?

I've just read that flamewar. That dude has some serious anger issues. I'd have found it hard to remain so polite and respectful if repeatedly addressed in that manner. Hats off to you, Holger.
