Title: Dimension Open/The Open Level Project v1.1
Post by: ToasterApocalypse on May 03, 2013, 08:48:32 AM
Yeah, that's right. tOLP. Dimension Open. After 4 and a half months, IT. IS. HERE! So, just incase you don't know, here's how the idea for tOLP originated. Me, Dav and Doormat were in the drawing room. Then, I came up with the idea for tOLP. Unlike most other open source levels, tOLP has materialized, and has formed this level! In it, Viridian enters a new dimension, and meets new friends, and some old ones!

What's the idea of tOLP? A level that everyone makes?

That sounds suspiciously like a thread I saw a while back on here...no idea what it was...I've been a lurker for a while, heh. It wasn't tOLP though

Anyway I'll test.

Post by: SomniRespiratory Flux on May 03, 2013, 02:56:53 PM
Hmmm... I said when the project began that I wouldn't really be much help in making the level, and specifically said I'd probably be a better level tester. And now the time has come for testing...
And I have finals next week. :violet:
I think I can work around it a bit. However, there is likely no chance I'll be able to really put much time into this until Monday evening or Tuesday, and even then I have two tests during the rest of the week. So I think I can help if you still need level testers by then, but I'll be working around both test prep and preparing to move out of my dorm completely. So you might have found the worst time to ask me this, but I'll see what I can do. Just PM the link if I'm accepted.

You're in because it's only fair since we rejected your r19.

What's the idea of tOLP? A level that everyone makes?

That's what tOLP is, a level made by a select few people who applied back in FEBUARY when the first ever tOLP thread was made.

I can definitely be a beta tester. You know I can write wall long posts for feedback :D

Long walls of feedback? Okay you're in.

Well, if it helps, I have four tests next week. The first one, Monday morning, should be easy. The one I have Monday evening is the hardest, and I have to do a lot of work between now and then to prepare. Once it's done, I should have a bit more open time. The third test is Wednesday morning-afternoonish, and should be rather tricky, but not extremely so, and I still need to get a solid A on it if I want the same for the semester grade. The last test, though fairly easy, is early Friday morning, after which I'll spend the day moving out. Tuesday, Wednesday afternoon, and Thursday I may have time or not depending on how I end up preparing for those last two tests. (This is East Coast USA, so this message is posted at 5:28 PM my time.)
Tell you what, send me the level, and if I don't have time to do anything with it you can take me out of the testing credits. If I do have time I'll try to message you some of my thoughts on things, so if you don't hear from me assume I didn't have time. Is that reasonable? ???

OK, big tests are done, and I am happy to say that I should be more than capable of testing this level. I found enough time to put stuff off when I had a lot more to do. Now I should be able to squeeze some VVVVVV into my schedule. Count me in, if you don't already have enough testers. I'm happy to help in any way I can! :viridian:

I really does seem like an extremely big level. It was already mentioned that it's 20x20, and, if I counted the empty rooms correctly, it has at least 398 rooms!! Nearly (and perhaps really) 400!! This is most likely the biggest level ever (or has other 20x20 level got more?).
I'll play this after I finish D. 333333, if the stable version is already out by then (I don't like playing betas...). I'll comment even when I haven't played everything! I'll just warn that, for several reasons, I might finish this level months from now. :P

I actually made that easier; it used to have 5 elevator shafts next to each other instead of 3, and when you teleport to the room after that, you would have to react quickly. If you didn't, you would have to do everything again.

If you were playing with invincibility: yes, you WILL get stuck there.

Just some kind of warning - You refused to do the hardest trinkets in my level for them being too hard. While I was the designer of those challenges, and that might make me find them easier -- some parts in TOLP, I found harder than in that part.

Just saying! Good luck!

This....is good to know.  Keep in mind, a level can still be filled with lots even if without 100% completion.  I've played many games in my time that I didn't get every nook and cranny but still love.  That being said, I'll attempt it.  I'll weep.  I'll whimper.  You'll laugh.

Have you tried taking the path below the red gate yet?

Anyway, tOLP 1.1 has been released! This fixes a number of issues:

Changelog for 1.1:

Fixed a bug where all teleporters would become inactive.
The explosion script no longer repeats.
The end script is now guaranteed to work.
Changed some other small things in the end script.
Added some minor things.
Fixed a bug where you could get stuck in Test Of Platforms.
Fixed warp lines in Ribbon Chess
Fixed a tiling error in Ribbon Chess and Lost Code
Fixed a small text box alignment error.

Download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/6646hejzoxi9c67/open_1.1.vvvvvv

I can't update the first post here though...

If the teleporters are inactive (I found out why) and if you can't update, try touching the big round teleporter. It may fix the bug. Also after updating, you should go into the green area for a few rooms (you don't have to go all the way to the teleporter, just to the room before it, and then back) fixes the problem if you have it from 1.0 or 1.0.1. The bug won't activate at all when you play the level from the beginning in 1.1.

Continued, didn't finish yet, still with v1.0.1.
Time: ≈1h48m. Deaths: ≈930 Trinkets: 10/17.
Currently in the polar dimension, at the room "Spike Switch", or whatever it's called (didn't try that room yet, just reached it).


Very good, so far...

Toaster, I think you should remove the map in the OP, it's too spoiler-ish...

After beating that deep space zone, you can still use the keycard to kill the warptokens. Go in and look at the teleporter.
Guess what? YOU CAN TOUCH IT!  :victoria:
I've heard it can destroy savefiles, so i had to clear my data to be safe. If it is not an error and you worked around it, that's good. If not, please fix.

We're going to have to make that script say "Game NOT saved" then, because the teleporter is actually activated by a script (then it's safe to touch). If that script wouldn't be there, THEN your saves would be destroyed, so your saves were fine. If they weren't, you would have noticed it. You would end up somewhere weird in Dimension VVVVVV.

I'm in the destabilized Polar Dimension. I forgot the room where I stopped, but I've passed "River V" and "Choose your Poison" (and no, didn't update).
Time: around 2h30min; deaths: 1363; trinkets: 12/17


No more comments... still very good...

HOW did you generate the Storage Crates? Also how did you change platform speeds and enemy speeds? MUST know.

Post by: Dav999 on July 06, 2013, 01:32:25 PM

Platform speeds can be changed with platv in the level file just like tilecol, enemy speeds can only be changed if you create them as entities.

Don't set platv to something higher than 9 though, or it will glitch.

My other qstn is, how did you get the crates in there, anyway? And changing their speeds in Varying Velocity?

The enemies in Varying Velocity were created with internal commands. Although you can't change their appearance from the crates, you can change their direction and speed.

Enter it, then exit to the right. There's a warp line, which the background is supposed to hint at

Could you PM me your save (open 1.0[.1].vvvvvv.vvv) so I can correct Viridian's position to be back on track? The glitch was fixed in 1.1, and it's also highly recommended to upgrade to 1.1 because otherwise you may not be able to see the ending...

I have already gotten back to that location, so it's not really an issue, I just have to be careful is all.  I don't save until I finish an episode, so I just backtracked back there.  If it continues to be issues, then I'll worry about it, otherwise I think it's a 1 time fluke.

FIQ released version 1.1.1! It fixes the bug which enables you to break the game by selecting the teleporting to ship option. Updating is recommended!

Time: around 3:30h. Deaths: 1679 (okay, I admit I'm not sure). Trinkets: 14/17
Currently in the (spoiler) test of wrapping.


Still great...

Also, I still used v.1.0.1. But I changed my mind about updating or not, remembering that most changes are bug fixes. I'll play the newest version from now on (in the next time I play, 1.1.2, unless another update is released in the meantime).

EDIT: Forgot to mention something.

I've completed the level with 14/17 trinkets and somehow saw the ending with v.1.0.1. However, I needed to update to 1.1.2 to get back to the dimension because TB wasn't working. I visited the Lab, Warp Zone, the prison and the Space Station without finding any trinkets... not to mention finding various glitches! In all areas I visited besides the Lab, I saw the crewamtes again, not to mention a dialog repetition at the end of the Warp Zone, or cutsene bars if you enter from the end. Will this be fixed?
After that, I went to the Emerald zone. Valso was stilll there, and when the terminal was activated, it happened as if it was the first time I activated it. Result: I was teleported to 14,1. I completed that area, going to the Polar Dimension again. Being sick of repeating areas, I gave up.
Final Results: Time: ≈4h30min. Deaths: nearly 2000. Trinkets: 14/17.

Rating:
Originality: 10/10 :vitellary:
Difficulty Balance: 7/10 :verdigris: Note: You get a high rating for having medium difficulty and a low score for being too hard/easy.
Story/Roomnames: 9/10 :viridian:
Visual Design: 8/10 :viridian:
Glitch Amount: 7/10 :verdigris:
Level structure: 8/10 :viridian:
Total rating: 17 :shiny: /20

This got the same result as "Dimension Funland" by Flushex due to being original. I still think "Dimension 333333" by Sendy is better...

I'm pretty sure you have to:

  • Make sure the room isn't wrapping
  • Place warp lines
  • Exit VVVVVV
  • External edit your level (open it with a text editor)
  • Find your room
  • Set wrapping to the right kind
  • Done!
That's not necessary.
1. Place warp lines at where you want.
2. Make a checkpoint in the room and press 'enter'
3. Now exit testing.
4. Place warp direction as you like.
5. Done!
