Title: Can't run VVVVVV 2.1.2
Post by: WEGFan on May 03, 2014, 03:08:25 pm
I can't start any new topics in other forums, so I posted here.

Just now I downloaded 2.1 patch and override the 2.0 version. But I can't enter the main menu. :victoria:
I am using Steam version.

Heya,

Sorry about that. Version 2.1 isn't stable due to some render mode changes, which is why it was never officially released. There's a version 2.2 in the works that will be out in a couple of weeks, though - until then, I recommend just going back to 2.0 for now!

I mostly look at internal scipting and Direct Mode level posts.

P. S. : I love your internal scripting levels, Toaster!

P. S. 2: Will it be available to people with 2.0?

If you still want to test, and have a bit of know-how, you can try this:
* Go to the VVVVVV settings folder - in %APPDATA%/.vvvvvv in Windows and ~/.vvvvvv/ in Linux. Mac is irrelevant since Mac can't run 2.1.
* Open the file unlock.vvv in a text editor
* Here you'll see various stuff for your VVVVVV progress. You can also use this to fool around with achievements (trophies) and whatnot, but that's not what we'll do now
* At the bottom you should see the following:
<advanced_mode>X</advanced_mode>
<advanced_smoothing>X</advanced_smoothing>
<advanced_scaling>X</advanced_scaling>
<openGL>X</openGL>

Try to change X to 0 and try start VVVVVV again.

If these aren't there, insert it below <swnrecord>X</swnrecord> but before </Data>.

Only recommended if you know what you're doing, and make sure to create a backup file before fooling around here

1) I can't find the settings folder.
2) I don't know how to make a backup.
3) I don't have 2.1, if that has to do with anything.
4) I have windows 8, too.

As I said, it's only if you know what you're doing. You're better of waiting until 2.2 if you don't understand what I'm saying!

Can you give me a list of what 2.2 has? Here's what I want (ones with stars (*) are ones it NEEDS to be):

- Direct Mode (better version)
- Altering spike direction
- Disappearing platforms hold moving platforms
- Everything 2.1 has
- Available to 2.0 users *
- Available to Windows 8 users *
- S p a c e s and CAPITALS allowed for script names
- Enemies larger than 16x16 (ones that hurt)

Terry's a bit vague about its features. We do know that it's available to 2.0 users.

Following this (https://plus.google.com/102593483001615978126/posts) is probably the only source of hints you'll get.

Now I have someone to share my sorrow with if it isn't available to Windows 8 users!  :D <-- he's saying "Bwahahahaha!"

How do you make a message appear when you hover over a word (or smiley)?
