If you run into bugs or glitches, please post them here.

If the game crashes, it usually displays some kind of message as to what exactly happened. If possible, please post the content of that message, since it would make it much easier for me to fix it.

Generally speaking, try to post as many information as you can: Where did the bug happen, when did it happen, what operating system you are running as well as your general specification.

This is especially important to me, if you're running this game on Windows 10, because I don't have a Windows 10 PC myself, which makes finding and fixing bugs exclusive to that platform rather difficult.

I just died when enternig the anti-gravity-field in the level with the many "things that shoot from the ceiling" O.o

Developer

which antigravity field exactly? The one between the first the horizontal and vertical section, or between the second-to-last and last screen?

The first one.

Developer

thanks! It never happened to me, but I'll see what I can do. It never happened to me, so I need so check what might be the problem there.

The camera gets displaced after falling down from the highest level in of the ladder-tower, at least in the ice version.

(my level descriptions are somewhat strange)

Edit: the camera is only displaced when it already moved to the right while being on the highest level

I don't know why, but I just had a robot shooting while jumping again.

In the level with a lot of robots, the one that jumps from one to the other side of a spike-filled pit with a platform over it. I had it not really in-screen.

Developer

Oh yeah, I had this happen this weekend as well. I'll probably just re-do them completely at this point.

I just played two or three times without MUSIC and without SOUND.

Apparently there have been some sounds :)

I guess it is a "per enemy"-variable, which sets the sound and it is not set properly for some enemies.

After I died at a bossfight, I now have music playing twice. Ok, I killed myself and one of them stopped, but when I got back to the menu, a new one started and the one from before continued. Seems like one music layer wasn't quite interested in ever stopping.

Developer (Edited 1 time)

fixed it (I think). Update will be available in a few minutes.

Edit: And the Update is live. let me know if the problem still exists. Otherwise I will be re-doing the whole audio system fairly soonish anyway.

Is it intended that the secret exit sometimes doesn't lead to the secret area?

Oh, and the house at the start of that one level with only jackhammers doesn't have a backwall, which can be seen by walking back to the left after walking to the right.

Developer

secret levels can only be completed once per run. Thanks for notifying about the missing wall. I put it on my pile of about half a dozen other cases where the camera scrolls past the stuff that I've built.

I'm playing the Steam version on Windows 10, and for some reason I can't seem to take screenshots, no matter what button I assign to the task. I can open the Steam overlay fine, but pressing the screenshot button does nothing. In fullscreen, Print Screen just gives me a white picture, too, so that doesn't help.

I also encountered the broken endscreen bug a couple times, which seems like it's a known issue. It was pretty rare, though.

Developer

Never tested the screenshot function myself. Going to look into that at some point.

The endscreen will now get fixed, since it's seems to be a real issue for people that are not me. I still have no idea what causes it though.

Generally speaking though, it might take me a bit until I get around to it, because right now I'll have to take a step back for a bit and try to rest.

Sounds like a good plan! From the looks of your devlog, you deserve it :) As game-breaking bugs go, the endscreen issue isn't particularly serious since it happens after your die, hehe.

I just had one of the never-working jumping robots just jumping up landing right where he stood before (in the "five levels in one-level").

Developer

*picture of someone flipping a table and running away shouting*

I reduced the amount of weird stuff they do by a lot, so I think I'm going to leave them alone now.

The game crashes for me every time I press the O button (on controller). The messege it displayts is as follows:

___________________________________________
############################################################################################
FATAL ERROR in
action number 1
of  Step Event0
for object obj_god:

Variable obj_god.s_escape(100335, -2147483648) not set before reading it.
at gml_Object_obj_god_Step_0
############################################################################################

Is fun so far tho.

Developer

Wow this is really confusing.
According to the message the game crashes because it's looking for a specific sound file that isn't there. What's weird is that it is there on my end and I have no clue what's causing your problem. Basically when you activate hyper mode (I think O should be the default button for that, but I don't have a Playstation controller around), the game pauses whatever music's running in the background under certain circumstances. Only your case it crashes.


I would appreciate it, if you could try the following things for me, so that I can maybe figure out what's wrong:

press O right at the start of a run. Does it crash?

press O after you've killed one enemy. Does it crash?

Could you try and see of this also happens, when you press  "D" on the keyboard. That should be the default keyboard key for hyper mode.


Aside from that, maybe try either updating your version or reinstalling it, maybe something went wrong there?

Sorry that I don't have an easy answer here, but I'll try and figure out what causes this.

Hey again! I tried what you told me. It doesn't do anything if I haven't killed an enemy, whether I press W (the key it's bound to on keyboard - even tho the manual says it's F) or O on controller. But if I've killed an enemy either key leads to a crash. I tried a couple time, wanna say 5-7, always crashes as long as I have killed something.

More accurately - It plays a sound effect and the character has some sort of effect on her for a second, then the game goes to desktop with the error message where I have to press abort and close it. It won't open again if I dont. Pretty sure the last part is intentioanl but just wanted to be specific. 

I should probably point out I'm in the demo/free version from Itch.io

Havn't had any issues as long as I don't use hyper mode, its really really fun as well! Great stuff otherwise, would buy if I had any money lol

Developer

You being on the Demo explains everything! I'm going to fix it later today, or tomorrow.

Thanks for letting me know and good to know that you're having a good time regardless.

Developer

Hey!

Just wanted to let you know that I've just uploaded a patched version of the Demo. Feel free to re-download this one, if you want to see what hyper mode is all about.

Also thanks again for letting me know. It's a bit strange that this bug went past me, but at least it's fixed now.
