  1. Is it just the resolution of the screen preview, or does the logo in the bottom left contain microprint?
  2. Have these mac graphics issues ever been fixed?
  3. Same question -- now on sale on Humble, interested.
  4. I see that this game is currently being sold on Humble, and claims Mac compatibility. But I also saw an earlier post here that the Mac version was not actually ready and had to be pulled. Is the current release mac compatible? 10.9.5
  5. So I see someone is actually trying to edit/clean up the wiki today. Good.
  6. The only idea I have is that "wish string" that I mentioned before. No one has yet figured out a solution.
  7. Ok, I'd like feedback please. https://hacknslash.gamepedia.com/Talk:Puzzles Apparently there is a meta-editor in charge of the whole gamepedia wiki site, and that person feels that a wiki is just one big spoiler, and no special spoiler markup is needed / nothing should be hidden from someone that comes by to get some information about a game. ... No other wiki works that way, that I know of; I know of plenty that have some sort of spoiler system. (AllTheTropes, for example). Basically, I want the wiki to be something that a new would-be player could visit, to find out about the game, without having anything ruined. Other than "grey on grey text", or something like that, I'm not sure what to do with that official stance.
  8. I'm starting to add stuff to the wiki, and I have some questions. Specifically, how much information should be revealed on the wiki? And, how do you mark a spoiler on this wiki? Right now, for example, the puzzles that I've seen described have their solutions given, in clear. At the least, it should be in a spoiler; should the solutions be changed to just hints or ideas? There's more than one solution to any puzzle (and you saw some of my unusual ideas)
  9. So looking around at the files, I noticed a bunch of layouts in the steam workshop folder. I understand that there's no tools for making new layouts, so making new rooms is difficult. But there seems to be a good supply of generic layouts in there. So how would someone write up a new room, with those layouts, and a simple puzzle? How would you put it in a steam workshop for others?
  10. I didn't even know you could hack the code for water / abysses until I saw that mentioned in a walk-through; I thought you could only modify rooms and such. But that room? I did what I thought was obvious -- I made the for loop from 1 to 0. Any reasonable language, that would abort before going through it even once. Lua though? Removed tile 1, and then aborted.
  11. So ... some questions: 1. Is there a way to turn the normal room code (which looks like compiled bytecode or something) back into Lua source, 2. Is there a way to access the visible source code in Data/Scripts in-game when it is normally only showing you stuff from Data/Content/Game (given that you can hack access to Data/Content/Secret, I suspect the answer is as simple as knowing how), 3. Will the in-game lua editing work on the source code files, or does it only work on the bytecode files? ... Some interesting stuff in there now that I'm actually willing to look. The unit tests shipped with the game? That's nice ...
  12. Idea. I was thinking about the wishes that Smash had me use after completing the game, to get the encrypted secret room book. What if the decryption key is one of those wish strings? We've got a number of "useless" things in the game to consider, such as a treasure chest that has nothing in it. What if the chest itself is the decryption string -- or more accurately, the wish name that refers to that chest?
  13. Is there an official community wiki for this game? If so, where? There is a wiki at GamePedia that starts by saying it is the official wiki at the top, but then says "not associated with the game publisher", not updated in years (still claims to be early access), and has an undeleted junk page about a 2011 dog show that has been there for years.
  14. Ok, Lets play will start at 10:45 pacific time, sat april 1st. http://www.twitch.tv/keybounce/ Promo video: https://youtu.be/063OdffeAB8
