Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds with GDash game engine

fixed teleporters (did only work when entering from right or bottom, but not from top or left) You mean, when you leave the same teleporter you entered, unless the exit side is blocked? That is intentional. Yes, it does not behave that way when entering from the right or bottom, but as a level desi...

Re: Personal experience with fangames

I shied away from playing Marek's caves because I often heard (and saw in the cave maps) that the caves are partly very crazy and difficult to solve, and I'm more the kind of player who wants a cave solved within 15 minutes (at most!) :D Granted, some caves aren't that fair. I was inexperienced bac...

Re: Gdash

Amoeba is scanned before butterfly, but amoeba was checking if it was choked before it checked if it clashed, giving this result. That is not the reason. The choke check can not decide to convert within the frame. It must check for expanding possibilities in the entire cave first. If the amoeba is ...

It is. I designed an engine test cave covering this a long time ago:

Re: GDash new port

Come to think of it, even this perfect solution has a potential flaw because there might be GDash original games where scheduling type was set to BD1 and milling timer was 0. If such a cave was made with an earlier GDash version, then 0 should be 0, but the "perfect" GDash version would r...

Re: GDash new port

About the magic wall timer. In BD1, BD2 and PLCK, it was a one byte value with an independent timer. It is set with a one byte value. The timer works by counting interrupts, ie. 60 per second on NTSC. Whenever it reaches 60, the magic wall's second timer is increased and then compared against the se...

Most people don't even notice the slow explosions. What makes you need fast explosions that badly? For the best PLCK experience standalone game, I suggest using the Deluxe Packer 1.55: http://www.gratissaugen.de/erbsen/dlp155.zip But you still get most of the annoying quirks of the original Construc...

By using two inboxes, one of them surrounded by diamonds and the other surrounded by exits, the cave can then be solved with any combination of two inputs, not "only" by pressing right two times :D Far too complicated. You can just put open exits and don't need to collect any diamonds at ...

Logic DeLuxe's bugfix already fixes the strictly unsolvable caves A/5, I/4 and I/5. However, there are still a few solvable but insane higher-level caves which I also want to fix. The patch was updated years ago which also includes tweaks for K/4, N/2 and P/3. http://www.boulder-dash.nl/forum/viewt...

I strongly recommend "Crazy Dream 7", the author of Logicdeluxe. It is probably the most feature rich Boulder Dash on the C64, but you likely would prefer playing it on GDash. The C64 version is not exactly optimized code wise. Back then, I coded this with the Action Replay monitor and a ...

Note, however, that there is an issue with starting values that do not belong to the 949 cycle and can change the behaviour of the first ~30 slimes in the first frame (and only there). You should clarify which engine we are talking about. Obviously not Atari/C64, whose caves are too small for 949 s...

1. the engine supports the "MW stops amoeba" feature (which the BD2 engine doesn't but many fanmade engines do!); It is worth a note that this feature is not present in any of the original BD engines. 1stB introduced this behavior and provides it as a per cave option. The idea of converti...

BD2 has no voodoo. That was an addition to PLCK.

Cave 29 ("Time Fuse") starts at 3:24.
This is indeed an example where the implementation matters. It works that way in Gdash, but not in PLCK, Rockford would explode in the same frame the voodoo is detected and exploded by the firefly.
