<![CDATA[Nuncabola resolution]]> I tried connecting using a TV as a display while playing Nuncabola from my laptop. When I got into the Nuncabola options screen, I noticed there's 1x1 resolution available. Since I was very curious what that could mean, I clicked it and then the Nuncabola screen scaled down to a really really small size.

There's still sound. I hit enter and the voice "Select" happens as usual (as if I hit the Play button). If I hit enter again it goes back to the title screen. But the arrows key don't work. No matter how many times I hit the arrow down key, it will always be the voice "Select" after I hit enter, I can't seem to go to replays, help or options. Normally it worked right?

I then deleted the Nuncabola folder and redownloaded it from the website. The settings (super small screen) is still there even after redownloading.

I'm on macOS Catalina. How can I play the game again normally?

<![CDATA[Neverputt can mess up my task bar]]> Ubuntu 18.04, with Plasma KDE 5 
System clock shows local time (U.S. Central, Chicago)
Running NeverPutt in 1280 by 800 screen.   (Default is 800 x 600.)

Sometimes, when I run Neverputt, it messes up my task bar.  The items on the task bar point to the wrong processes, and the time of day is messed up.

For example, I am finishing a game as I write this. The time of day clock shows 12:33:09 PM, and is frozen.  It's actually 5:24 PM. The items on the task bar are these:

  • BOINC Manager -- correct

  • Chromium Web Browser --  has title "Comics Kingdom " and the name of a comic strip I viewed hours ago.  I am using Chromium to write this. The correct title, which is seen in Chromium, is "Post new topic -- Technical Support -- Neveforum -- Chromium"

  • System Monitor -- Correct

  • Inbox email (Thunderbird) -- links to NeverPutt

It just changed. Now, "Inbox" is correct, and "System Monitor" points to Neverputt.

<![CDATA[problem]]> faced with such a problem: I did my level with tunnels and when entering the tunnel fps immediately fell from 265 to 3 . I solved this problem by reducing the radius of the ball . but now I have completely made the level ( I did it on win 7 and then switched to win 10) and now when I start playing my fps becomes 41 and when moving it drops sharply to 2 -6 fps! how can I solve this problem?

<![CDATA[Drag Selection Not Showing in Radiant]]> The box that comes up when you drag over items to select isn't showing. I tried looking at all the shortcuts and preferences but I couldn't get the box to show. Is it a shortcut that I need to press?

<![CDATA[View of ball obstructed]]> Not exactly a bug, but something I regard as a design flaw. Some Neverputt courses have more than one level. Sometimes, the ball comes to rest in a location where, with "positioning of the camera", the ball can't be seen. If I can't see the ball, it makes it difficult to line up the putt and to set the strength.

Although it's much less important, it is still annoying when it happens to a ball in motion. For example, in the 18th hole of Reshaun's Easy Putt, there is some mechanism that is always hard to see.  I generally hear the ball bouncing around. When I do catch a glimpse, it appears to be a series of short ramps inside some transparent container. 

In this case, sometimes, the ball will leave the course.  If the ball is going to leave the course, I would like to see what happens.

<![CDATA[Neverputt -- putting a moving ball]]> Some holes have continuously moving objects on the putting surface. Sometimes, the ball will come to rest in the path of one of these objects.   When the object strikes the ball, it will begin moving again.

Sometimes, the ball will be at rest long enough so the game allows the player to begin the next putt. When that happens, if the player does not putt the ball before the moving object hits the ball, the ball will start moving. The result is that the player will have to putt the ball while the ball is moving.

This makes it difficult to match putt strength and aim to the situation. 

If, under these circumstances, the player does not putt the ball in time, the ball will float off of the course. This makes it nearly impossible for the player to avoid a penalty.

Example: Reshaun's Easy Putt hole #8.

<![CDATA[Neverputt Reshaun's Easy Putt Hole 2 has invisible objects]]> Reshaun's Easy Putt hole 2 has 4 platforms. From the first platform, the player putts across a gap on to the second. The second has curved piece of stone-like material to help direct the ball down a ramp to the third platform.  Ramps connect the second platform to the third, and the third to the fourth. The ramp between the second and third moves back-and-forth.

From the motion of the ball, there are invisible objects on the second platform. 

Try this: From the tee, aim the ball too far to the right so it lands on the 2nd platform.  Then, try to putt the ball off of the platform so it leaves the course. Instead of leaving the course, it bounces back. 

Putt the ball toward the curved object. It bounces before it hits the object.

<![CDATA[Neverball crashes when switched to fullscreen on Ubuntu 16.04]]> When I go to Options, I click Fullscreen, the program goes full screen, and then it freezes up. Nothing happens. Clicking on things does nothing. Without knowing how to shut it down (Ubuntu provides a way out, but using it is tricky at best), rebooting the system is required.
Otherwise, the game runs/plays fine, so far.
