An Honest Mistake - ...probably a bit too difficult.
« on: February 18, 2018, 03:33:36 am »
So... hm.
I just bought the full version of VVVVVV today, and I've been obsessed with it all day.
And, of course, after getting the swing of things I decided to take a shot at the editor.
I made a level, my first one, and uh... it might be just a bit challenging? :verdigris:
Next time I'll try to make it play out like an actually normal level and not just a hellish nightmare.

Anyway, the level is called "An Honest Mistake," and, well... to be fair, that's kind of what this level is.
Here are just three little teasers of what this level has to offer.



Actually... those might be the hardest parts.
And, yes, before you ask, I've tested each and every single part. It's all possible.

So... uh... good luck? I-I guess?
(P.S: I'm... kinda shocked to see that this place is still alive! Not complaining, but just... shocked. :vitellary:)

In the second screenshot, the random capitalization reminds me of Margo Roth Spiegleman.

Challenge Accepted!
Well, i am suffering in the trinket 3-tile gap. (Viridian keep not going through the passage)
Make the gap 4-tile or something. (btw Viridian DO walks when against a wall when he's walking left, and he just sits there in the right direction)
And i raged so hard in "Within the Lines" that i BSOD'ed my computer.
So, it's too difficult.

Uh... hehe... I slightly recall fitting through that gap, but I'm pretty sure it's not possible.
I don't know why I can remember fitting through a 3-tile gap, because I can't exactly recreate it. Anywhere.
So... my bad. :/
I've learned a lot more about the game and fiddled around with it, and I've been working on a level that's hopefully going to be a LOT more fun than it is brutally challenging.

Here, made a video of me playing the level.
I totally didn't open the level editor.

I accidentally muted a track before rendering, the base64 says
"You win, I-I guess?"

If that was anything to go by, you've got a lot more patience than me.  On the other hand, I would never resort to cheating with the editor, except to fix a glitch.

Also, I can't decide whether the use of gravity lines in "Within the Lines" is really clever or really stupid.  It would have worked a lot better if the spikes couldn't kill :viridian: through the gravity line.

630+ hours in the game~

I wouldn't have actually cheated if the recording wasn't already 40 minutes long, sorry~

If it didn't kill Viridian, there wouldn't be a "challenge".
But since it's basically luck, I think the section should be completely changed.
