Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

I write this post because about a year ago I was talking about a possible January time for doing something about the game. Now I'm still working on the very same project I was working on at the beginning of the year and I'm still not finished. That project takes way much longer than what I anticipat...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

I'm sorry for the long delay and to say that I did not do any further work on the game. And I think I will not have the time to work on it in at least a month.

Suggestion taken.

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

Most of my points have been already said but to summarize: ... I listened to what you told, thanks. 1. Varying timestep between frames affect gameplay. Timestep can vary from 33ms to 1ms and elma is entirely different game between those endpoints. Beginner players won't notice a difference though. ...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

Sorry, implementing graphical elements into old game is not a high priority for me because people don't seem to like it. The first thing I plan to do is importing the old physics into the new Windows version. This is because it is possible I can do it quickly. Probably in January I will have some ti...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

Where I'm at with my thinkings is that there is a good chance I can include the old physics into the game as a next step without spending too much development time. I mean doors, elevators and teleports would be in the game together with the old physics. But I will try to do that only in January.

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

whenever you start a level, the timer is already at 0.50 seconds, so we never get to see what happens during 0.00-0.50s. How is it that I did not notice that! please help! I cant find wherearetheallfiles. I tried search tutorialcard.lev, but it wasn't founded. But I can play it in game. I knew that...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

It's theoretically possible to drive it. Just highly unlikely. Incredible plays anyway! It's not useless. It's a good mobile game. We probably also took many apples in ways that were not intended. Many recs here (wr recs made on mobile): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16t8LQiXIUzU3fapOrkyAd...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

you do know that sounds like a fun challenge to some of us? :) So,I tried it. Nice gameplay elements and graphics, strange physics and sounds. You should make new head sprite, make some externals available in shareware version, make obstacle moving faster and such small things. Pretty nice you retu...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

Balázs: is it somehow possible to extract the levels and make them playable (even without any objects) in 2000s version? I did not even try to do such a thing. The levels in the new version do not match the physics of the old version. When I did the opposite thing, loaded old levels into the new ga...

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

This release is kind of the opposite of that; handling is very different and it's missing basic features from 15 years ago. So I guess we're not the target audience. When I released the iOS version I knew it was useless for you hardcore players. In my experience the community is quite different fro...

It is quite possible I am wrong. When I put doors into levels, many times I had the feeling that they could block the game play to some extent if you are going faster than normal speed.

Re: Elasto Mania II is apparently out

I know these versions I release disappoint you and I'm sorry for that. I'm not good at making good times on the levels. When I played with the first experimental versions of the game, what I enjoyed was the movement of the bike, making small moves, jumps and flips and for me it was not about making ...
