Just my 2 cents: Learning should be as much fun as possible. If you just replace the chalkboard with a monitor and keep writing down a dull formula (x+y=), I don't think it becomes a better way of teaching. It's quite the opposite: it's more complicated to collect the solution CEs and remember the s...

Dynamite rocks! :twisted: Even that one works (don't know whether it makes the puzzle harder or not): `013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013 `013`008`044`044`044`044`044`044`044`000`013 `013`000`000`000`000`000`000`000`000`000`013 `013`000`000`049`049`049`049`049`000`000`013 `013`000`000`049`0...

Here it's working, even with a zero sum: 002.level :D But the solution isn't very elegant. :? The MathBot `182 (initial CE value=1) passes the problem and all possible-solution-CEs (0-9). Touching a number adds the number to the CE value. Touching a possible-solution-CE reduces the CE value by 1. If...

Hi DarbCal! I just gave it a try: 001.level The problem is created by two group elements (0-4 and 1-5 because a two-digit sum or zero sum are difficult). If a solution CE (1-9) is dropped, a 'MathBot' will be created that moves along the problem and gets destroyed at the STOP sign. It adds the probl...

I just played veysiorak's levelset and there were again two levels with a time limit of 100 seconds which can't be solved in that time. So it's still a common problem. I suggest to set the default time limit to 0 in new releases until a better solution is implemented, just as a temporary workaround....

A CE-Scripter? How does it work? Is it just a tool to create a .level file with many CEs or will it communicate with rocksndiamonds.exe and run the scripts during runtime? That would be really great ...
Can't wait for a public beta ... :wink:

Maybe the BIOS of the mainboard supports USB mass storage devices so that an USB stick will behave like a floppy disk ... And maybe you can get NTFS support into your DOS with this: http://www.free-av.de/antivirclassic/avira_ntfs4dos.html Btw.: Before you let Partition Magic convert your file system...

Maybe with VMWare and install real DOS on the virtual PC? But I doubt that's more compatible than DOSBox ... :?

Sokoban open exit issue

I just played Venatirs 5 levels and found a strange behaviour: If you push the last Sokoban object into the last empty field, the closed exit will open. But if you push the Sokoban object then one step further, so that there's an empty field, the exit won't close, it stays open. Is that a bug or int...

I couldn't get javascript-URLs to work in Internet Explorer (although Scripting was enabled), even something simple like javascript:alert('hi'); didn't work.
In Mozilla Firefox it works.

Nice levels! Especially Snällis is a funny idea!
Just add some (95? :wink: ) more levels, rename them from 001.level upwards, add a levelinfo.conf, give it a name and you've got your own levelset. 8)

VegaTen already gave an important hint (first I didn't understand it too, but when I got my solution, it became obvious :) ): The only trick you need to know is passing through a 2X3 rock walls. Try to solve this one: `013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013`013 `013`008`001`001`004`004`001`107`013 `013`001...
