I'd like to see a scripting language in RnD for the custom elements, instead of the config screens and change pages ... that would really be cool and powerful ... 8) You could use variables instead of CE values and maybe coordinates ... if (self.SmashedBy(rock)) { if (IsDesctructable(self.x-1, self....

I found a way to reduce the number of additional CEs for each new column to 9 (104 change pages) and make the main CEs independent from the column! 8) Now let's see if I can realize my project ... :roll: Here's a new problem: :cry: Imagine 2 CEs, one looks like a rock, the other one like empty space...

Hmmm... how important are the various things: CE amount, speed, size? For my initial project I would need several moving columns next to each other, so I don't think it would work with a transport element and the high speed could also be important ... The problem with my current solution is, that t...

I couldn't put the Maxtor in the PII box since it has XP on it (need more than 64MB ram) You could use it just for the first 3 seconds, before the OS loads ... just to see if the DOS characters appear and then immediately switch the PC off ... >If it's defective, you should get a RMA and a replacem...

mad characters in DOS sound a little bit like a virus ... perhaps in the Master Boot Record. :roll: Can't you swap the hard drives to check, whether it works in the PII 380? If it's defective, you should get a RMA and a replacement by Maxtor. I wouldn't say that 40°C are too hot for a hdd ... On th...

Moving Colour Column

Hi, this is my first step into the world of custom elements, a Moving Colour Column . :D It's a stack of arbitrary height, containing four different types of elements, let's take `006, `057, `096 and `097. At top and bottom are switches, if you switch the top, all colours will move one step down, if...

Did you try this:
- select level 28 in the main menu
- eject the current tape (the most left button in the tape recorder)
- type ":ist" in the main menu, a tape should be loaded (06.Feb 04, 3:49)
- just play the tape :)

About invisible Yamyams: I used the EMC Mine 3 ( No Gfx ) levelset, Setup, Custom Artwork, Custom Graphics = Classic Graphics Setup, Custom Artwork, Override Level Graphics = Yes but the Yamyams are still invisible in the level creator .

The best primary key would be a checksum of the level files ... I think that's the only way to guarantee, that all network players play the same level and even the same version of this level. :roll: Then it would be independent of the directory structure ... Or just take the name from the levelinfo....

Hi! Thank you very much, HerzAusGold, your workspace file is a big help for me.

Aaargh, sorry, I made it with RnD v3.2.0rc8. Here's a new file made with v3.1.2 (thx Daniel :wink: ): Rock Elevator by Jannik The great thing is, that you can use this content for the Yamyam: `013`014`051 `013`011`013 `004`013`084 and it works with Alans BoulderGen, too (if you replace there the bot...
