Topic: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    Well, I seriously do hope that these levels are completed enough to release. I know that some of them, especially 20, will need tweaking. Let's just throw out there that Murphy's Law is a thing and something is almost certain to go horribly wrong with this level set.

  • Levels 01-04 and bonus I use the hills environment. They are generally more calm levels.

  • Levels 05-08 and bonus II use the ocean environment. The main theme here is moving and falling platforms.

  • Levels 09-12 and bonus III use the city. In fact, 09-12 were my first four levels I ever made, although I did go back and polish them a little bit. The theme here is speed, although I only used one type of curve. Bonus III, on the other hand, is much more polished since I made it much later on.

  • Levels 13-16 and bonus IV use the space environment. You'll see what theme I chose... (partly because I find it difficult to describe).

  • Levels 17-20 use the alien environment. 17-19 are all mazes in some form or another, and 20 is a huge level with a maze as one of the challenges.

Warning: Do not attempt level 20 unless you have a lot of time to spare. It takes me about 20 minutes to complete, and that is because I know all of the answers.

-----------------------------------------

    I might make one or two more sets. One of them would be a remix of Nevermania but made a lot easier. (Although I have no idea how Discs and Mountains would be made easier without destroying them.) The other would be another themed set with 16 main levels, using the volcano, desert, and water backgrounds.


EDIT 2019-05-30: I removed an unintended solution from level 19. Please download the levels again. (If you get to level 19, on the next platform to the right there should be a caution block.)
EDIT 2019-06-02: Murphy's Law Again... Download the levels again. Level 20 is supposed to start on a shiny silver platform with four green paths leading out from it.
EDIT 2019-06-20: Fixed cheat in Race level (III); fixed a typo in Invisible Half Pipe and extended the time limit for that level by one minute.

Upcoming bugfixes NOT YET IMPLEMENTED (they will be when I need to make a major change to something):
- Delete the double coin in 14 (Invisible Halfpipe)
- Change goal coins to one less in 20 (Adventure), as it is impossible* to displace the "Hard" record of all coins in 10 minutes
- Fix the useless switch in 12 (Running Amok)
- The second switch on II should have a time of 3, not 5

2. When I do finally release the set, should I include the .map files or just send the .sol files in the zip?

I highly recommend packing the map files as well as the sol files.

1. ITI wrote something about zipping the mtrl folder but I still fail to understand it.

look in the .zip file "iti_mspaint_nbtextures_zipped9_5_18_mod9_23_18.zip" in thread. when you open the zip you see a folder "textures". inside is folder "mtrl". inside this folder is the texture files. if you place this .zip file in the nb 1.6.0 data folder, nb will detect the textures without you having to extract anything from the .zip file.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    Update: With some tricks (including writing code and making the map a grid), level 18 is far less daunting and will be finished soon. That plus level 20 also being very near being done means this set is within measurable distance of completion.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    I finished level 18 (a while ago) and almost finished 20... but then I decided that one of 20's challenges is badly made, and I am replacing it with something else. Level V should be easy except I keep forgetting to work on it!

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    I think 20 is done (apart from some small tweaks)! However, I decided to retool level 12 or something... so another delay... and I still have to finish V...

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    All right! I have all 25 levels done, complete with shots and records and versions. Which means that I have to figure out how to find all mtrl textures that I ever used and send them in the zip.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

Replace your data folder with the default data folder and compile your maps. mapc will report any missing materials.

12

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    So let me get this straight: I have to run the mapc command on each individual map, find what materials it says are missing (which appear to be all of the ones I use), write those file names into a text file, then hunt through my large mtrl folder for those filenames, and finally put those exact files into a folder, and then re-compile all the maps with the textures included?
    Perhaps it would be easier to simply send every texture.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

Your point? You got this far and you're ready to give up? Neverball mapping used to be a fucking hassle and a half. This used to be the easy part. Can it be improved? Absolutely.

Edit: what's this about having to recompile twice? You'd only need to do it once.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

    I did not say I was going to "give up". I merely was hoping there was an easier way, but if there is not... then, well, here goes nothing... EDIT: Never underestimate the power of Python.

I just got on to the first level, I think there is something wrong with the textures.

Re: chmod 700's level set!! (Last Update: 2019-06-20)

I found out how to fix the problem, I just had to re-compile all the levels in NetRadiant.

These levels are amazing! They're really fun and creative! It was definitely worth the wait. Great job! smile

My favorites so far are,
03
12
17
18 (Probably the hardest one in this set, which is perfect because Neverball could use hard levels like this)
20 (Currently stuck on this one, it's awesome! Great last level for this set)


By the way, here are some replays:

Note: No spoiling level 20 with replays for the first month (i.e. until 2019-06-28). If you need to report a bug send the replay as a PM.

Fixed a bug where level 1 scores were listed in the wrong order. They should be 350 Hard, 200 Medium, and 150 Easy.

    Congratulations, all the puzzles except 20 have just been spoiled... I guess it goes to show how if you say not to do something, there will always be people who do everything but the specific thing you said not to do...

    EDIT: What the... That is NOT the intended solution to level 19. I fixed the level so now you have to use MY solution. Which I have two replays of in case you are wondering, so it definitely works.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to spoil the puzzle levels. Only one person has seen the puzzle replays so I took them down. I should have thought twice.

That explains everything, I beat that on my second attempt. I was wondering why it was so easy. Gonna try the new version now. smile
