Re: Segmentation fault (core dumped) when adding new setting to Setup

I was able to reproduce this, and I think it is not a bug in mat's code! After a bit of debugging, nothing was making sense, so I did: $ make clean $ make and then it worked fine. It appears the bug is in Holger's makefiles, which do not declare any dependencies on src/lib/system.h, which is easily ...

Re: 1-Step Mode in 2-Player Game

4.2.0.3 is current version; I'm not sure there was a 4.0.3.0

Re: test element_info

Why is that an option?

Seems like it should be always-on, and better described. Like, looking at 'Yam Yam (starts moving up)' I see '[YAMYAM.UP]' -- better if it said:

[graphicsinfo.conf token: YAMYAM.UP]

Re: Sokoban

I had forgotten about the paste-a-level feature. Pasted this into the editor, it was nonfunctional -- everything turned to yellow emeralds as soon as I started play. Pulled down the menu, set it to RnD rather than EMC engine. Started: the player character was a '?'. So I switched to an RnD levelset,...

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

I've moved on, but would definitely go back to finish those levels if the means were discovered! Those are particularly good levelsets out of the EMC club pile. The end of Exception 2 says that Exception 3 and 'Pyramid Levels' are 'coming soon', and I don't seem to have either of those, which is a s...

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

Were you able to finish level 35? 72 doesn't seem to be a wraparound problem. I'm playing it with R'n'D 4.2.0.3 where wraparound works correctly; and there just isn't any wrap-related reason for that level to fail. In fact, I have the following levels unfinished: 35: 1 emerald short (maybe the last ...

Re: EMC difference in rocks dropping on magic wall?

I've never run any original EMC anything! :) Just now I fiddled with fs-uae a bit on my Ubuntu install, found it as baffling as last time I did, and stopped... Perhaps it would help if I had some Amiga ROMs, but I don't. The two built-in games were able to display something (one of them even display...

Re: EMC The Exception 2 level 35 solvable?

Now on levelset 'The Exception Two', level 72 (file: levels/Emerald Mine Club/emc_exception_2/72 ) -- I can't even get this level started . Pick up green key, rescue diamond before it's crushed, walk out into the corridor around the world ... nothing. The only entrance is blocked, and I can't think ...

Re: EMC difference in rocks dropping on magic wall?

This could actually be the same problem as in https://www.artsoft.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3161, regarding The Exception Two level 35. Here I need to be able to snap-push or push a falling rock; there I need to be able to snap-collect a falling emerald. So that seems like a stronger implication...

EMC difference in rocks dropping on magic wall?

In The Exception Two level 64 (levels/Emerald Mine Club/emc_exception_2/64). I reach a place where I need a rock to drop through a quicksand to crack a nut. The only available rock is in a blocked quicksand above a magic wall which is already running (and infinite). emc_exception_2-64.png If this le...

excessive cache writing

R'n'D writes .rocksndiamonds/cache/artworkinfo.cache on every single startup! Even if there are no changes at all (which is usually the case).

This probably isn't great for performance; moreso, flash devices don't like extra write burden.
