Topic: General Gaming / exorbis 2

I know what I meant by ace ;)

Originally, it was supposed to be the best possible score; but of course, in the longer levels particularly, me and Bezman won’t always have been able to find the best score. It’s not a bug – you’ll notice that if you do beat the ace score, the message at the end of the level is different to reflect that; I knew some of the aces would be beaten.

I would update the game; several people have emailed me asking – but as far as I’m aware, editing the game and re-uploading it can cause people to lose all their saved data, and that’s too much of a risk for it to be worth it.

Thanks for all your comments! Keep requesting badges and Greg may make some!

Topic: General Gaming / Official Exorbis 2 Level Codes Thread

It might be that the forums don’t allow certain foreign characters; one letter missing and the whole code becomes useless :(

I guess people will just have to share via instant messaging instead…

Hi, I’m Scott, the creator of Exorbis 2 which was released minutes ago.

There is a level editor in the game, and you can share levels by copy-pasting the level code given to you after you’ve finished testing your level.

The game is here: Exorbis 2

So lets make some levels!

Here’s one to start off:

I expect Bez will be along later, since he created most of the levels in the game!

Have fun!

Bang, updated.

Might have to delete your old saved data and start anew – some of the levels have moved around.

- Did you find any bugs, or anything that didn’t look right?

Until the level 8, no.

Do you mean you found a bug on level 8?

Topic: Collaborations / Intermediate programmer needed

I’m tempted to help, it seems like a cool idea for a game. I’ve made other games with cats in – Rocketcat and Jumpcat (both sponsored by Kongregate!). I’d need more info though – what do your graphics for the game look like so far, how does the player progress, how would we split sponsorship revenue, how much creative input would I be allowed, etc. Leave me a whisper.

I’ve updated the game now, same link. Any further comments?

I will be making a “special thanks” page on the credits listing anyone who provides any really good comments and feedback, and also anyone who shows us how to get a score better than the par/ace on any levels – everyone who has provided good comments so far will be added!

Thanks for all the effort Babadingldoo! I’llchange the par when I get a chance.

Thanks for the extra feedback slasherx and Mostly_Harmless. I guess I canrelease this fairly soon now :)

I can get 18, not 17 though. I can’t really put 17 as the par if I haven’t got it myself.Can you describe your technique?

Topic: General Gaming / Get your name in the credits of Exorbis 2!

I would have liked to see a distinction for the levels I did complete under par (different color),

Par is supposed to be “perfect” – maybe I should rename it as such. I am very interested ot know which levels you beat the par on and the scoreyou got.

Thanks for the feedback McCoyEVP.

I will like to test

Go for it: http://editundo.bravehost.com/Exorbis2.html

If there’s no more negative comments / suggestions for improvement then I’ll assume everything is good and there’s no excuse to complain about the finished thing! :)

I’ve re-embedded all of the fonts into the file and broken down some of the others into vectors. Could you look again and inform me of the results? Greatly appreciated.

Game file updated, now contains level reset button. Apologies if this updates deletes your saved data.

Topic: General Gaming / Get your name in the credits of Exorbis 2!

Just needs a complete level reset button as opposed to “undo one move at a time.”

I’m working on it now :)

Was 1 over par on one level (8?) and can’t think of how to cut one move out. I don’t doubt that it’s possible, I just don’t see it.

The par is set based on either my or Bezman’s personal score. Level 8 is most definately possible in 9 moves – although I did think is was 10 for a long time.

Then there’s a sense of differing accomplishments: getting a level 1 over par is still a great score

I understand what you mean, but I’d prefer to keep the scoring simple. And also, on the later levels where the par approaches 100, a difference of one or two moves doesn’t seem to warrant recognition.

Thanks for the feedback Draco18s.

Topic: General Gaming / Get your name in the credits of Exorbis 2!

I think a Tutorial Level (skippable) would be good, and I released, but I wanted to beat every level. :)

I figured the first couple of levels would pretty much act as tutorials as you’re given very limited choice.

Thanks, AioriaRox!

-When I completed ‘lost in the shuffle’ I did it in 28 moves (par = 30) and got this [bug]

That bug does seem to happen occasionally. I’ve tried my hardest to find a fix for it, but since there doesn’t seem to be any one thing that triggers it, it’s difficult to debug. I also see from your screenshot that the times new roman font is being displayed, does this font get displayed elsewhere in the game? It’s supposed to be Berlin Sans FB. I thought I’d embedded it but obviously I can’t test this without another computer.

- Is par supposed to mean perfect and levels where you can beat par oversights?

Par is supposed to be perfect, but obviously, me and Bezman (the level designer) aren’t perfect and there will be some levels where we haven’t discovered the “perfect” score. Beating the par certainly isn’t linked to this glitch though, unfortunately.

Also, perhaps a reset level as well as undo, or make it more obvious if I’ve missed it

That’s a good idea. I’ll see what I can do.

Thanks for the feedback, phooltk!

in lvl editor what id the Buzzword is that the password?

The buzzword will be shown to the person you give your level to only when they complete it – it’s a way of them proving to you that they beat it.

my lvl

Couldn’t get it to work, sorry! Are you sure you copied the whole code by right-clicking and selecting “select all”? Otherwise I may have to tweak the editor to read the inputs better…

Thanks suvius4!

I would probably not make par the optimal solution but rather “ok” as phooltk says

I think it’s better at being the optimum score – that way the player can know they have 100% completed the game once all the level select icons are gold.

My only suggestion would be to add keyboard shortcuts, at least ‘u’ for undo and ‘r’ for retry

Vary good suggestion, I’ll see what I can do.

Thanks, Syro!

Topic: Kongregate / ES-Razzi Tutorials - How to Submit a Bug Report

I’d like to point out that these bug reports are sent to the developer of the GAME, not to Kongregate – if anyone is having problems with chat, badges, etc, this isn’t the way to report them. It’s also not a place for general comments or reveiws – I’ve received sooo many bug reports just saying “YOU SUCK LOLZZZ” :p

Otherwise, it’s a very good tutorial.

Stuck in a good way or stuck in a bad way? You can skip up to 10 levels by using the level select menu by the way. Did you realise that or not? A lot of people seem to not realise levels can be skipped.

Thanks very much for your feedback!

Is there any way you think the gameplay can be made easier to understand?

EDIT2: The game was updated 25/1/2009, I’d love any comments on the new version
EDIT3: And again on 30/1/2009!
All helpful commenters will have their name in the credits of the game!

Hi Kongregate!

After nearly 2 years in the making, Exorbis 2 is almost ready for release. I just need a few reliable individuals to test it in depth and provide critical feeback on it.

The most recent version of the beta can always be found here:
http://editundo.bravehost.com/Exorbis2.html

So if you’re up to the task, click on that link, play the game, and try to enjoy. Then please tell me an as much detail as you can:

- Was it too hard/ too easy for you?
- Did you fully understand how to play?
- Did you find any bugs, or anything that didn’t look right?
- Are there any more options (in the options menu) you would like introduced?
- Did you find the level editor easy to use (if you used it)?
- Good/bad choice of music?
- And anything else, however slight, you think might be useful for me to improve the game!
EDIT: The score you got on any levels you beat the par on

Also, I’m interested to see what levelsyou guys can make – if there’s enough demand I may release a player pack with levels made by users.

Note: Currently there are only 70 or so levels, there will be 100 in the final release. Levels 69&70 aren’t playable.

Many thanks in advance!

(the original Exorbis can be found in my profile if you want to compare – I think it sucks by comparison to this one though!)

They are called flash games because you need FLASH to make them. After years of flash games being so popular, I fail to understand how people still don’t know this…

Topic: Kongregate / Buried Treasure Week feedback

chauang: See, my opinion is that Jumpcat is quite frankly the dumbest game I’ve ever played.

Awesome! Just the response I was going for! Seriously

GandalvGul: I liked Buried Treasure week, especially Jump-Cat :-O
bq. trib4lmaniac: Don’t listen to the people putting down Jumpcat greg, it was incredible!
bq. paladin93: It was indeed very good. I preferred jump cat.

Thanks guys!

But I promise my next cat-related game will be even dumber.

I think Buried Treasure was a great idea. While I personally didn’t think any of the chosen games were great, it’s still a cool idea, and I liked playing games that I would probably have otherwise missed.

Maybe in the future, instead of whole weeks, you could put an extra box at the bottom of the front page labelled “Today’s underdog is…”. No points challenge attached, but badges would be cool.

Maybe also give users bonus points in general for playing underdoggish games, for example offering double points (10 instead of 5) for the first 1000 players/voters of every game (providing the user has a score submitted via the API to check that they actually played the game). This would make people seek out less popular games, but they could ignore the whole scheme if they didnt want to participate.

Topic: Kongregate / RUNESCAPE does not belong!

I’m against Runescape being on Kongregate. Not because of it’s format, or because it is or is not a good game (I havent played it). I’m against it because Kongregate, to me, is a place for small-time Flash/Shockwave/Java developers to show their games and build up a reputation, and maybe earn a little cash. It’s not fair for a huge, multi-million dollar company to crash the party and steal the thunder of the casual developers when their game is already famous and popular.

Topic: Kongregate / Introducing Underdog Week!

I just got home to 50 bug reports in my inbox. I hope you’re happy Greg!!
But cheers for picking Jumpcat :) Seems like it’s been a contraversial choice, but at least now I know how to improve it. I mean, I won’t improve it, but it’s nice knowing how I could :p

FYI (to everyone) “YOU SUCK” is not a bug report. It’s not a bug I’m willing to fix anyway.

Greg, do you want me to foward you all the bug reports that are more Kongregate-based than Jumpcat-based? Most of the bug reports I got seemed to involve connection problems which are out of my hands.
