Re: difference in wall growth rate?

Oh hey guys, yeah, I knew this trick on dynamiting the growing walls in a certain way that you can pass through it more or less, and was planning to make levels like this years ago. Yeah, it's solvable, for the purposes of solving the level faster, I used the tape system as a form of a save state. I...

Re: Emerald Mine Club levelset completion progress

Oh, Steffest, hey! On the email thing from Sandancer, maybe? I could just use the questions I wrote up years ago and pick out the info. I think you can handle the blog article on Emerald Mine Club, if you haven't done so already. Holger, is there a list of levelsets in the Emerald Mine Club that are...

Broken tapes due to changes in the EM/EMC engine since 3.3.1.0 and 4.0.1.0

Yeah, I was say something about this, because moments ago, I was about to watch my recorded tapes on playing Ace Mine 1 (an Emerald Mine Club levelset) on the latest version of Rocks'n'Diamonds (4.0.1.1) to look at how much I played R'n'D (and to get more inspiration for level creating), I noticed t...

BDFans seems to be back up?

http://www.bd-fans.com/ The website was down after inactivity, and seemed to poof off from the internet (but I wasn't sure how long, I haven't kept track of the time). Martijn, if your there, are you gonna update the website regularly? EDIT: Took a quick skim of some of the pages, some of them seem ...

EM Acid pool sprites used outside the game in Brix 1 (1992)

In my routine of randomly watching video game videos and leaving them in the background, I stumbled across a video that features what the title of the topic says. It was quite puzzling to see it used in that game, as it doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the aesthetic by how the other sprites are ...

Re: Emerald Mine Club levelset completion progress

Hey Holger, I just checked EmeraldMines.net and it turns out there was an update of July 6th of this year. According to a blog post in that website, two people from Emearld Mine Club of Great Britain sent a bunch of levelsets that were missing from the collection! Would you mind try updating your Em...

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

I pop around here now and again. For the last few years I've been working on a EMC-style levelset with the limitations of those game elements specific to this type (and not any R'n'D stuff at all, just the Emerald Mine stuff + V6 stuff). One of the reasons why I stopped working on it is because the ...

Re: Emerald Mine Club levelset completion progress

@Holger: Checked and verified that it's all good! And now I have uploaded all the tapes for the completed levelsets that I've done. I was supposed to upload all the files by levelset, but unfortunately, because the forum doesn't allow me to upload more than 3 attachment files per post, I tried conde...

Re: Emerald Mine Club levelset completion progress

Just made an update on this topic, it's been a while since I done that, and it's been a while since I continued playing more EMC levels. I was occupied at the time and didn't dedicate my time to it; that's to the point that I didn't make any new levels in my own spare time. I'm not sure if I can ret...

Hey, I'm back from being preoccupied a lot. I am able to check the tapes that you sent to me and tested them, they're played correctly! Anyway, I'm close to releasing the tape set of the solved EMC levelsets for that progress topic that I've done so far, I just need this tape to be fixed that I some...

Concerns and inspiring ideas of custom resolutions

Hearing the development of the game being ongoing, with R'n'D using Git in the Artsoft website, there's one particular nudging thought: custom resolutions. Mind that I haven't tested out the development version because I can't seem to find the Download section for the development files in the Git se...

Interesting EMC engine object quirks

Not sure if it supposed to be a NEW IDEA or GENERAL DISCUSSION; but I'm putting it on the latter just for curiosity and reachablity on what I found: In the Emerald Mine Club levelset DIAMOND MINE , level 45; when the level starts off with a huge group of ¸255, surrounding the ¸008 hiding behind the ...

Re: I am alive! But the RND Files Archive is not

Hey Zomis, good to see that you're still around! I was wondering about your file archive's disappearance; although, I'm sure Martijn's BD-Fans website still has most of the files there in the Rocks'n'Diamonds page. Speaking of the website, I wonder where is Martijn...
