Playing Elma with children

Hey! Those of you who have already children, have you been playing Elma with your children? I have two sons, 2 and 3 year old toddlers, and they like to watch while I'm playing Elma. Luckily they don't want to play themselves yet, but that day will come soon I fear, and then they will crush all my t...

Re: EOL v. 1.0.11 released

Nice to see that EOL is still being developed! I thought that it was obsoleted and okeol or Steam Elma or Elasto Mania 2 would take its place. But it's good this way. I hope that this will prevent elma community from breaking up into fragments.

Thanks for explanation, jonsykkel. So it seems that the lower limit is actually 80.1 fps and it's just stupid to play with lower fps?

I like the constant fps idea also because it would make automatic levels possible (the bike acts same way every time when you are not pressing anything). Am i right?
