Hi,

I have updated the binary.
New in this release:

  • a startup screen with a fancy logo by JP and
  • a background story of the game
  • ByteBeat music in the startup screen.

I put the binary here as I am not allowed to edit the top post any more (!):

Changed ownership back to you. Try again?


#23

Still no luck. Maybe this is the reason:
There is a configuration item, post edit time limit, that limits for how long posts can be edited. It defaults to 86400 minutes (2 months). 0 means forever.


#24

? ok. I edited it just now. try again?


#25

Nope. I just do not have the pen icon there to be able to edit the top post, or any other post in this thread except what I have made today. Thought I can edit the title of the thread.
I can still edit e.g. Wiki threads I have made long time ago. eird indeed. Weird indeed.


#26

Have you got the full text of that intro available?
There’s one or two grammar mistakes (e.g. ‘have send’ instead of ‘have sent’) and a few things that would improve the wording.

I really like the title/logo by the way.

That’s an ability of all level 3 members (I forget which).
Being able to edit the post should be an ownership thing,
but it might not be.

If @jonne can’t find another solution, one option would be to raise you to trust level 4 which would effectively give you partial moderator powers.

I would presume Wikis are always editable because of the intent of Wikis.
(I.e. a means of storing useful information that is editable by everyone.)

Thanks a lot!


#28

On the other hand “All Your Base Are Belong to Us” is entirely consistent with this genre :wink:


#29

The new binary. Thanks to @Pharap for proofreading my mini novel!

I have just tried the game. The game looks really nice (+ the logo)! The music however gives me an uncanny feeling… :slight_smile:


#31

That is the sound of algorithm. ByteBeat music: humans are eliminated from the equation :wink:


#32

New binary, added @Pharap and ByteBeat music to the credits.

The python sources are in the branch:

The python sources are in the folder: PokittoLib\Pokitto\POKITTO_LIBS\MicroPython\src_py\

Unfortunately I am not able to edit the top post any more, but below is the current list:

Highest scores:
@sbmrgd …1910
@Rakkachi …1750
@wuuff …1040


#36

Added resized gif (looks better on gamespage new layout)

Removed warning about SD card because now it works


#37

Could you also copy the latest binary from here [Game]Mars attack
to the top post? I still cannot edit the top post any more if it is too old.


#38

Congrats. You are now a moderator! Try now.


#39

Now I was able to do it

A tip for the future:
For my games, I always make releases and upload the binary in the release. E.g. Minesweeper for Arduboy, Physix for Pokitto.

Then you can link to the latest release with https://github.com/<account name>/<repo name>/releases/latest
E.g. for my Minesweeper game https://github.com/Pharap/Minesweeper/releases/latest

Then you never have to update the link because it always points to the latest version.
