Oops! Well, good thing that's wasn't a new achievement! :)

That's cool, but Bermuda is not a country. It's a British Overseas Territory. I should know because I'm British.

I have tried some experiments emulating with GPUs, but so far it has been much slower that way. The GPU isn't naively well-suited to emulation because of all the branching, unfortunately. I have a few more ideas so maybe something will work out...

Will there ever be a way to use a GPU instead of a CPU in the future?

After some more checking, I found that the second bug above seems to depend on the screen size. The bug disappears if I maximize the window of the program.

Bug: If I download new solutions from the servers, then immediately quit the program without solving any levels, then when I restart the program, the downloaded solutions are lost. For now, it seems possible to get around this by solving any level (e.g. by replaying a stored solution to the end) after new solution download but before quitting.

Also, if a level has a height of 12, and there are more than four solutions in the player file, then the bookmark menu behaves a bit strange: when one tries to scroll down from the start to the fourth bookmark, suddenly the highlighting is lost. One can still choose that bookmark by pressing the Enter key. Or one can scroll further down and then back up to select the fourth bookmark.

I came here immediately after seeing the mac logo change. I should start creating more levels soon. I used to be so active at a younger age.

any chance to watch it somewhere else than youtube, for us behind the Great Firewall of China?

Ha ha. I have personally never been so fortunate!

I believe there are easy ways to remove the chain from the bike. The first is to take the bike to some guy you know who has already invested skill points in bicycle repair, and ask them to replace the chain, but only the first half where they remove the chain, without the part of buying a new chain and putting it on. The second is to go for a long trip with the bike, and break the chain accidentally when you're in some very remote place and have to push the bike ten kilometers on a hill to get to the nearest inhabited place.

... to be able to get it to work with the desired effect. Actually, I could implement one aspect in a normal way but it wouldn't be as cool; however, the other aspect will almost certainly be more complex. But I have some ideas now. Hopefully soon it will be ready for release.

I have a concept for a new level and a prototype that works, but I need to either come up with novel mechanism improvements or rethink the actual challenge or something

If it's good, it's good! I rewrote that whole part, and there was also a brief period where the version on the site couldn't upload speedruns, so it's likely I did fix whatever it was. :)

Thank you, I did download the newest version & it seems to work properly now. I guess by now you don't need to know what exactly didn't work anymore!? ;)
13307. Tom 7 ( – 05 Sep 2016 16:46:40 Happy 20th birthday Escape!! ]
kirima: What's wrong with them? Coincidentally I just finished a rewrite of all the solution management stuff, which should have fixed all the known bugs, and I just uploaded a new version for windows and macOS. So maybe try that one out and hopefully it was fixed. :)

jonas: I decided to go with just c:\escape\, because reading about it, %APPDATA% seems like a kinda poor choice too (for example, I think it is hidden by default?). Hopefully this works ok for people!

Bug report: Suddenly bookmarks do not work properly on OS X any more?

The irony of this scare campaign by these font companies, is that for decades they have been stealing fonts from other companies, and then selling them off as their own. One should read the incredible research at the site "The Font Forging Industry" site by Ulrich Stiehl which exposes in detail the "Forgery, Cloning, Piracy, Plagiarism of Fonts" by big-name font companies including Monotype, ITC and others. For example the font "Frutiger" was forged by Monotype as "Segoe" (installed on Windows) and forged by Bitstream as "Humanist 777". (I can't post a web link here, but you can easily do a web search for it).

Tom 7: could you install everything, including the program, to a directory under the %APPDATA% directory? I think some packages that want to install new programs dynamically without admin privileges do that on Windows.
