Level: Dimension Dimension
« on: October 16, 2012, 08:58:26 pm »
So, this is my new level! It's called 'Dimension Dimension'. (Yes, choosing a name was that hard :P)

It's a 20x5 map which features:
-Two small puzzles
-Ten trinkets
-A gravitron (I'm sorry :victoria:)
-Internal scripting, of course
-Teleporters
-...and more.

It has an original story:
:victoria: and :vermillion: have gone missing! It's up to you to find them!
I think that is original enough. :D

What? Dav made a level? This is going to be awesome.

But alas, I'm such a lazy arse and can't be bothered to download it at the moment.

Nice! Haven't seen a level of this caliber since PJ left. Very good story, fun gameplay, tricky trinkets but that's the challenge.
I give it a solid 10/10.

:shiny: _ :shiny:

(If you don't know, the trinket face is my stamp of approval for levels that receive perfect score or above.)

OK. I actually downloaded it due to boredom and I needed something to do.

Good, but without direct mode I felt as though I was playing a normal level made by someone.
How in the fudge did you excecute internal commands without cutscenebars
do you know how much that would benefit my levels

If you look in the internal commands thread, you can see FIQ discovered something to make an internal command execute without the cutscene bars. I used that, and also something else: before he discovered that, I made rooms with a high floor and a low ceiling, because certain tilesets (lab and most outside colors) have completely black walls. I used that because then you can't see that the bars are on the screen all the time, because I made the cutscene bars stay in those rooms (that means, no endcutscene() and untilbars(), to make the next script start immediately, because you don't have to wait for the bars to appear anymore.

And about direct mode, I don't have access to direct mode yet, because I'm using 2.0. In the places where you see it, it's edited in a text editor (also the spikes in the gravitron) It means that, until 2.1 comes out for the Mac, my direct mode use is very limited.

Can you use a Windows emulator?

Then I first have to get the Windows version, because you can't run the Mac version in Windows... ::)

But I think I'm just gonna wait until the official Mac patch comes out, because to start a Windows emulator every time I want to edit a level... 2.0 works fine, too.
