At a distance / Playable at Eurogamer Expo
« on: September 01, 2011, 07:05:49 am »
For anyone living in the UK, there will be a playable build/demo of this game at Eurogamer Expo from 22-25 September.

I for one am very excited to try it out!

AFAIK, there's presently no 100%-accurate way to determine if you've rescued someone through scripting. I will definitely add a way of checking this once and if the commands to do so are added to the scripting system.

You could put a script around the crew member with a flag in it? then surround that with checkpoints so you have to checkpoint before you die. That would make it about 99% accurate I suppose :P

The commands "text" and "changeplayercolour"... are they usable in the level editor? I thought they were only part of the main game scripting that Terry used?

I suppose this is a good find if somebody wants to make a map involving colour changing at this very second but it may be more ideal to wait for a relevant patch...

Well yeah, this is only requiring someone is silly enough to go backwards on an obviously linear map :P

I found this very helpful and believe everyone should make the most of it if wanting to learn how to script.

Although I did come across a slight issue.  :victoria:
If in Musical Terms you use the terminal but then leave to the left, when you next use the terminal the gravitylines do not vanish.
The same problem in Pure Annihilation.
If in The True Test Of Scripting Abilities you have not got the first trinket and then hit the warp token you get trapped in that area forever as the gravityline reappears.

I hope that helps :)

Mega Kudos to everyone attempting this challenge. Especially that one guy who did it :o

I can complete the game with a small amount of deaths, but there is no way I could do the gravitron without dying. That thing is horrible.

The sad ending just has you floating endlessly in space. You have to kill yourself or quit.

I'd hate to think it is me being derpy but I cannot unlock the good ending. Either I'm doing something very wrong or there is something broken in the script. Here is what I have been doing:

Going down 5 times in 1st hole.
Up twice in 2nd hole.
Down once in 3rd hole.
Down 4 times in 4th hole.
Up 7 times in 5th hole.
Going right so screen loops round.
Jumping in warp token.

Regardless I really enjoyed your map despite it being quite a challenge! :)
