Error when entering password

Hi. It's been a pretty enjoyable game so far but I did hit a glitch. The game crashed when trying to enter a password and spit up the following text.


core/init.lua:585: attempt to call a nil value


core/init.lua:585: in function 'adjust_difficulty'

scripts/load_passcodes.lua:581: in function 'process_password'

states/passcode_screen.lua:246: in function 'submit_passcode'

states/passcode_screen.lua:96: in function 'update'

core/init.lua:988: in function <core/init.lua:984>

libs/boipushy.lua:79: in function 'update'

[C]: in function 'xpcall'


Now this is a strange bird. Do you remember what passcode you tried typing in (far stretch)? I keep trying to crash the password prompt too to see if I can replicate this, and I'm not having a ton of luck. The only thing I could think of is if the base version is trying to load one of the stages that doesn't exist, which would make the most sense. The build I still have on my computer is the one post-release that was going to add some new content, but that didn't go so hot. I'll have to take a crack at this one once I'm off work. 

We do apologize for the chaos! Appreciate the heads up!


I actually do have it. The password that caused the crash was M6E13QAK

Hopefully that helps and no worries about the issue. It wasn't really that annoying or anything.

Beautiful. That helped a ton. I was able to recreate that crash and see what was going on. Believe I have managed to tape her up! I'll release a quick patch up to the game files quite soon. Basically, the game got confused and output a 0 where it shouldn't have.

My current build doesn't quite match what's out on (there was going to be a desert stage available as a post-game thank you, but it never saw the light of day), so I might add some neat trinkets before uploading what I have.

Big major one is that the soundtrack doesn't match at all. I've been hacking in my songs to the game (as opposed to the watson soundtrack), so maybe I'll offer a download option for both flavors!! 

Thank you for the heads up. I appreciate it. Thank you for giving the game a play, too. I always find it cool as heck if someone gives the games a whirl.

You're welcome. Glad I could help figuring out the error. And thank you for all the hard work on making and maintaining a fun game.

Thank you. I just released the Version 1.1 update, so not only is that fixed, but the general gameplay should be further enhanced! In fact, if it wasn't for this post, I might never have started tinkering around with the game!

No problem. Cool, I'll have to check out the improved version. And I know I said it before but thanks again.
