"A New Dimension" by Souleye
« on: July 26, 2011, 12:42:04 PM »


Latest updated bugfixed version is attached to this post, and so will any subsequent versions be.

This huge map comes with the latest version of VVVVVV and is somewhere around 270 rooms big. I put my heart and soul into this, during the brief time I had to make it.

I'd love to see speed runs, finding bugs, etc. Comment away! Is it too hard? Did I make you laugh at times? Cry maybe?

If you haven't played it... Don't get intimidated by the seemingly daunting task once it "gets going". It's easier than DTTHW from the original VVVVVV. In fact, many rooms and challenges look way harder than they really are. This is by design.

So get up, cheer up, chin up, flip up, and turn up the music! (and incase you didn't know: I made all the music for VVVVVV - go buy the soundtrack here: www.souleye.se:-*

It was very enjoyable, and I'd say a lot harder than the main game. The automatic sections were fun, and the new song was great too. I didn't even attempt to get all the trinkets, but I'm sure I will eventually. I only really had one bug, where I slid up inside a wall for two rooms into another one. I then went backwards back to the room I came from by accident, so I guess it didn't really change anything. I forget what room it was or how it happened, but if I find it again I'll let you know.

I can get to a screen called pole dancer and I swear it is impossible.... And I can't go backwards in the world either so I'm stuck. Pretty fun and challenging up to there though

Please do! I don't know if I can patch the map later, but I'll update it locally in the meantime.

It is not impossible! What you want to do is... Well, if you ask me in a PM, I'll tell you! :)

Sorry for the newb-ish question, but I've got absolutely no idea how to access any of the user levels. I'm using the Steam version. If someone can help me out, let me know.

I don't think the steam version has been updated yet. If you have the Humble Indie Bundle version, you can use that and it's just a menu option, if you don't have it, you'll just have to wait until it updates. Terry said that Steam told him it would update last night, but I checked a little bit ago and it hadn't, so I have no idea.

Ah, damn..... I've got a five laying around- I'll buy the game again tomorrow unless it updated while I'm away. Thanks for the tip- I was totally clueless and this is an awesome way to keep the game alive.

It's probably worth buying the HIB anyway, it's a really good deal.

Anyway, I found out what caused my problem.

I ended up entering the space at the bottom-left arrow, somehow appearing inside the wall in "You snooze you lose", and sliding up into "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern". I then went backwards through the unnamed room with the moving squares, and down back into "You can rush it or take it slow" and realizing I went the wrong way (which is a good thing, I got to play it properly at least). While I was looking around I also noticed the loop error at the top of this room, which slides you up into the section underneath the gravitron remnants.

Oh my! Haha yeah, I did try to playtest these rooms properly but this rather large bugged room was done on no food and no sleep! I'll fix it locally and see if anything can happen in future patches.

That is intentional. I made this real simple for you. ;)
