Looking for Walpurgis Gardens

Post by uhmeem » Mon Nov 16, 2015 12:22 pm

Hi all! First of all I want to thank all of the creators of a fantastic levels that attended me from my very early chilhood :) A few days ago I've decided to refresh my experience with RnD. Sadly, the link on a game's website to one of my favourite sets - Walpurgis Gardens - expired. So I've got a big request - could someone upload Walpurgis Gardens and share with it? I would be much obliged :)

Hi uhmeem, welcome to the forum!

Yes, you're right -- "Walpurgis Gardens" and all the other level sets by Jamie Cullen are really very well designed and great fun to play! As the link to the original site was dead indeed, I've replaced the web link to the original site with a link to a static copy on my site (so it won't disappear anymore unless the R'n'D site itself goes down).

Please reload the "Levels & Artwork" page (http://www.artsoft.org/rocksndiamonds/levels.html) and the link to Jamie's levels will work again! (Or directly visit http://www.artsoft.org/rocksndiamonds/l ... nd/rnd.htm)

Have fun! :-)

In fact, one of the two remaining outbound levelset links on your levels.html page is also dead: Andreas Buschbeck's work is no longer on elemu-project.de. And, unfortunately, the Wayback Machine claims to have scraped copies, but its links (like http://web.archive.org/web/201305060951 ... elset1.zip) all result in "forbidden". :(

The Walpurgis files -- and I think this applies to most of the others you have transmigrated onto your site over the years -- do not extract into useful path locations. When you build a 4.0-final package, will you include (as optional side-downloads, I suppose) all of these various additions, packaged so they land where RnD files should land?

Walpurgis Gardens was one of my fav sets as well, along with BD2K3 and Snakebite :D
