Re: Personal experience with fangames

My approach when I designed the series was more or less a configuration for people who have played Boulder Dash but want to do more, but also as a kind of entry point into fangames for people to get their feet wet with. My decisions (except for Dig 2, which was incredibly experimental and fully reli...

Re: Alchemyst Dig!

My introduction of using caves after P was born solely on two factors, actually: the prior one you just mentioned (C64 BD just going to level 2 after int 4), and seeing NES BD going further than what is considered cave P (whose caves were reprised in fansets such as RTA Dash). I wanted to give playe...

Re: Gdash

Perhaps I have worded it incorrectly but your explanation has made for a more detailed observation of why this occurs. In which I thank you for this.

Re: Gdash

Amoeba is scanned before butterfly, but amoeba was checking if it was choked before it checked if it clashed, giving this result.

Re: Alchemyst Dig!

Alchemyst Dangerdash 03 has been updated to 1.01.
- Adjusted the third color from #FF3333 to #FF6666 for a less intense red in Cave N (Nambulite)
- Fixed the remark of Cave X so the actual mineral is referred to as Xonotlite.
The bundle is updated.

Re: Alchemyst Dig!

Well this is unexpected. Alchemyst Dangerdash Vol.3 has been released. This is more of a "return visit to the alchemyst" caveset involving mineral gemstones. Each cave has RGB color arrays representative of these gemstones in some way, or how they are presented. Look at the titles to see e...

Re: Alchemyst Dig!

Alchemyst Dangerdash Vol.3 is being started. There are a few things that need to be pointed out: - It will be the first caveset that uses RGB instead of C64, so it'll look dramatically different. - It will involve the labrat from Alchemyst Dig 1 again (in terms of story), except this time, the theme...

Re: Gdash

.bd is a BDCFF file, which is plaintext, whereas .gds is a compressed GDash caveset. The only difference is how GDash interprets these, and both are the same.

Re: Gdash

I do not really know for sure. I was just making an analysis based on knowns vs. unknowns. I haven't really found the answer myself.

Re: Anyone know who is uploading to YouTube channel "Boulder Rush"?

I, too, am curious about the individual behind this account, only to more personally thank them for being a fan :) The "About" lists them as being from Ukraine.

Re: Gdash

This might be due to the reason that these cavesets may have used some unknown or benign packer that the converter cannot recognise, due to the data not exactly having parity with the tool (this could be any package that had been created before a standardized means was made available, most likely du...

Re: Videos - Boulder Dash for Profs

"The Melt" was not made into a proper level in a set yet. Most of the caves provided on Krissz's site have been unique and not exactly transcribed into either the Dig or DangerDash sets as of yet. Though if anyone wishes to transcribe any of the standard form (40x22) into a more portable m...
