VVVVVV Tech Support / Inconsistent save game trinket count
« on: December 19, 2010, 01:16:08 pm »
Seems I've encountered a very strange bug in VVVVVV, but I can describe how it happened.  Oh, this is on Windows XP SP3, by the way.

I just purchased VVVVVV, and managed to finish it tonight (with slowdown applied, sadly).  Anyway, I finished the game with 17 trinkets, and was offered to continue playing the game afterwards.

I chose to continue playing, and proceeded to talk to Victoria (who gave me the locations of the remaining 3 trinkets).  Off I went and picked up the remaining 3, then warped back to the ship.  The jukebox room indicated I had all the songs available, and the trinket room indicated I had all 20 trinkets.  I spoke to Victoria again, which of course induced the Secret Lab...

Once I was in the Secret Lab, I played Super Gravitron for a bit, got some trophies, but for the life of me (because I'm using a joystick) couldn't figure out how to get out of the Secret Lab.  This is where I think the bug came into play.  Instead of hitting Escape on my keyboard, I chose to press [X] to close the entire VVVVVV application.

Upon re-launching VVVVVV, the game now thinks -- in some ways only -- that I have 17 trinkets.  The trinket room shows 20 trinkets, but the jukebox room only shows enough songs to correlate with 17 trinkets.

I'd be happy to upload my save games somewhere for the author(s) to analyse them and figure out what happened -- and if possible, fix them so that I do have all 20 trinkets.  :-)  Just let me know.

Thank you.
