Just curious, but why is this level 2.1 only? Does it use high-valued say commands or something?
Actually, the highest is probably say(8) because of 4-line textboxes.

I think I put Dav's 2.0 version in the main post.

Yeah, I think you did. So was it 2.1 only before because of say ( 8 ) commands etc.? Or are there other changes too?

Also, is anything actually worse due to it being made backwards compatible?

The maximum is say(5).

I think there are some very small things that have changed (some unavoidable extra squeak sounds, or some text boxes which stay on the screen 1/2 of a second after you press enter) but it's not a big deal.

Sorry, I've found a glitch. When you're in the PD and it says "Go to the left to get a refined trinket" or whatever, (a) it's to the right and (b) the cutscene bars don't disappear. This is a problem if you've already activated the script box on the right.

Something tells me Dav remade an earlier version.

Technically it should be at the left, as the dimension flipped.. right? :)

I converted version 1.21, so that was the most recent version.

That isn't right. The dimension is flipped (so up is down and vice versa), it isn't rotated 180.

I'll fix all of this later

Wow. The editor should really block saving empty maps! Or maybe have an auto backup feature, so that when you save a level, a backup of the old one is automatically created. (My hex editor does this, by adding ~ after the extension of the backup (level.vvvvvv~). Maybe there should be a folder in the levels folder in which the game automatically places backups?

All Most the progress I'd have made would be gone.

EDIT: It might be possible to search for a previous version of Dav999's 2.0 version. If it works, then I'll manage to regain the majority of the level. Scratch that, the only version is a version where Ch.1 isn't even finished.

I did.

I'm just coming to the conclusion of remaking it because I thought of some really cool ideas for the ending (as in the ACTUAL ending for the FINAL chapter. I don't want to spoil it.)
