Request for level designers
« on: April 01, 2013, 04:16:52 PM »
For those of us who use Mac, could you possibly make a habit of putting [1.1] or similar at the end of level topic titles that are 1.1-only? I would appreciate being able to tell without looking in the topic whether a level will run on my computer. Just a suggestion; I don't mean to sound needy or whiny.

Uh, 1.1? Don't you mean 2.1?

1.1-only? ??? Did you mean 2.1-only?

Levels should be backwards-compatible, there will be no level-breaking problems if 2.1 commands are used, unless there's say/reply with more than 5 lines.

Just adding more information to what Dav999 said.

In say commands, the color parameter* is ignored and all text boxes will be gray and centered.
The commands map(on/off)* and squeak(on/off/crewmate/sad/...)* will be completely ignored, but I think that never causes level-breaking problems.
Say/reply commands with more than 5 lines will show internal scripting in the text box (instead of the text itself) in 2.0., but I think that doesn't make VVVVVV crash or anything.

*See more info at the "Script commands index and tips thread" in this board.

Wait, does that mean that they did release 2.2?

I use Mac a good part of the time, too. Just download Windows 2.1 and use WINE!

Levels should be 2.0 compatible if not otherwise stated.

Actually, I have Macports (http://www.macports.org/), and I used that to install WINE. I'd go with aLaserShark's method first, though. But if that doesn't work (like it didn't with me), try Macports.

You need to have VVVVVV 2.0. for Windows first.
Then install the latest beta patch (there isn't a stable version). It's in here.
If you don't have any way to get 2.0 for Windows... then I think it's impossible.
