Just something I'm curious about... what determines where you start in the music?

Is it random, does it depend how far you got on your last run, does it go in order or what?

Would be nice to know the answer to this one, though I'm guessing "random".
VVVVVV / Positive Force + Pushing Onwards
February 06, 2012, 11:45:28 PM
After seeing Souleye's comment on this video, I had to try it!

My comment on the video:
QuoteI had to overlap them a bit, but it matches completely naturally, and even weirder, the mix as a single track loops more naturally than original Positive Force did, at least IMO!

I uploaded it (as FLAC) for the convenience of anyone interested:
(hopefully that doesn't count as shock horror copyright infringement, it's not really much different to uploading it on YouTube and really, anyone who likes the music should go buy it if  they haven't already, but hey a mod can easily remove the link if need be)

This will be staying in my playlist as a single track now  :)

However, now that I've confirmed the two songs are indeed made from the same "base", it makes me wonder even more why they're used where they're used. I always saw Positive Force as a kind of "boss" theme since it plays for multiple events, whereas Pushing Onwards is, when it comes down to it, just a regular stage theme like Pressure Cooker and Potential for Anything.

Still, the Space Station is split into two parts, and Space Station 2 is the biggest and most open level... part of the way through I thought for a moment I'd escaped into the "free space" somehow! So maybe it was deliberate.

Only Terry has the answers :vitellary:
VVVVVV / Level Sequence

What order did you play the levels in, after Space Station 1?

For me:
1. The Tower
2. The Laboratory
3. Space Station 2
4. The Warp Zone

I heard most do The Laboratory first, but I guess I'm just too used to Sonic games where your primary objective is going right, so that's what I immediately did after exiting the ship.
VVVVVV / Does anyone here play Touhou?

I saw the video on Youtube of someone getting 3 minutes on the Super Gravitron, and wondered if that person had ever tried a Touhou game, cause they would probably be good at it :viridian:

Myself? I've played quite a lot of 6, although I fail at it (I /think/ I may have beaten the game on Normal just once, but I don't really remember). I played some 7 and 8 too, but I didn't find those anywhere near as fun.

And I similarly fail on the Gravitron, lost count of my deaths. Haven't even unlocked Super Gravitron yet (I think I have 16 trinkets so far).

I didn't realize you could wrap off the screen in the Gravitron though, until I saw the Youtube videos. I think it'd be a more interesting challenge to ban doing that, since it does allow skipping many of the projectiles thrown at you.
VVVVVV / Source code

Has the VVVVVV source code been released anywhere?

Just curious, since a lot of the Humble Bundle games have released the source.

Not that I particularly mind either way. I just like to see how thinks work when I can.
