My guess is Jakobsen-style Verlet integrator and character morphing.

Me too, I guess it must had been an issue with my WLAN.

Oh, glad it's mysteriously fixed :)

I finally solved Marc's last level, but I can't download his solution? I think that it doesn't work on other levels, too, but I'm not sure. (OS X Sierra)

Nice cabinet! Damn, I too have a bag of clothes on my bedroom floor, but since I've not been painting or sanding down any rusted metal cabinets either, I have no excuse.

Ha, thank you for the reminder. I wish I had more interesting stuff to share, but I have only myself to blame!

You should post about your new projects today.

I think Moon Framers would fit in pretty well, though I suspect they'd be pretty rarely used, since heart framers seem to be mostly used as a simple key mechanism to wake up the door (I think sleeping bots are pretty rare). This feature was an homage to Adventures of Lolo, where positioning sleeping creatures was somehow much more essential to the puzzles. I added it to the list of ideas...

I totally agree that the loading times of the level selection screen are one of the worst usability problems. I have a partial rewrite of that whole thing (the level selection code is pretty bad, too), but unfortunately the scope is big enough that it's unlikely to be a weekend project.

Hey, so it's been a while... I've not had time for playing Escape much in recent times, but I was thinking of it again recently and had an idea for a new type of tile which I would think should be pretty easy to implement and is a natural extension of things already in the game, but I don't recall ever seeing before. Just a thought I figured I should share.

Moon Framers
These are essentially the opposite of Heart Framers. They would function identically, except instead of everything waking up upon the collection of the last one in the main layer, everything falls asleep (doors included).

I would imagine optimization of level menu loading speeds would be a huge improvement to having players stick around if we get activity up at some point again. I can't remember if that changed in beta 5 but if not, it's probably the biggest concern other than annoying bug fixes...

Yeah I guess so :(

Do you need a calendar?

Thank you Dom C! :)

The songs are wonderful,(I particularly like "Theme from Facebook Phone") and the performances equally so. Great work.

Yep, you're right. A few people have pointed this one out (it's also a prominent blunder in the video), which makes me especially ashamed to have missed it. :)
13379. N7DOT ( – 18 Apr 12:41:51 SIGBOVIK 2017: ABC ]
Sorry if I missed something, but... isn't

x or y

equivalent to

(x and y) xor (x xor y)

? I don't see why addition would need to be used for implementing bitwise or, since xor is the same as or (and as addition), if it is given that at most only a single argument can be true/1, which is the case here.

Other than that, though, it's impressive you accomplished this with such tight restrictions. Haven't gotten to watch the video yet though I plan to later... also, haven't finished reading the paper yet...!

my son just sent me pictures of mushrooms growing under his kitchen sink. I told him to get the landlord to relocate him while they tear out the walls because it probably is so infested. It was the sickest thing I ever saw and I don't want him to be severely sickened by them.

The Joseph Stalin Award for Excessive Execution

Gotcha. There used to be a most suspiciously like real research award (probably still is) which you're always in the running for in my mind. Though I tend to equate research with effort...

Thanks James! :)

Also, 68k is the first assembly language I learned! I thought it was satisfying.
