The cheat definatelly shouldn't be taken out. I've used it quite alot during the development of my levels to test certain things like jumps and stuff.

Then again, during the beta period when I was making my level, just left-clicking anywhere caused you to teleport. That ofcource has been taken out, and replaced by the cheat.

LPChip, your example makes absolutely no sense to me. Maybe because I have never even heard of whatever that game is.

In my experience with the cheat, I found that topic where someone said how to do the cheat and whatever, but it had been modified by a moderator to the extent that you couldn't tell what the cheat was.
Now, I played the Explore Challenge, and I absolutely hated that level. It was so boring, I'm sorry.
So I just sat in NiffChat for a few minutes and someone said what it was.

I don't really see why such a big deal is being made of this. I almost never use that cheat except when trial and error has failed at least several times to get me past some kind of challenge or in my own levels where I don't feel like going through a challenge I made again and again. Speaking of which, the cheat is useful when you're making your own levels and want to explore everything you've made so far.
What I'm talking about, by the way, is the teleporting thing. The invulnerability thing is completely useless to me for the most part.
On another note, it is basically like cheating in some other video game. Especially these days with access to the internet, it is rather easy to cheat in almost any game and almost every game purposely has cheating in it.

But, yes. Those video games do not really advertise their cheats and thus Knytt Stories does not need to either, but I don't think it needs to be hidden in one obscure and uninteresting level (I know you can just look in the world document whatever, but that doesn't really make it less silly).

1) Precisely, say *your* brain doesn't work like that, not everybody else's.

2) You people are really pushing this anti-cheat thing too much.

The level should also be on Knyttlevels.com, I think? I did upload a level there, and I believe it was this one.

I know the cheat...but I never use it, even in Lunatic levels. Actually sometimes I forgot that there even is a cheat.
But I guess that's just me lol.

I think its a little to easy to get the cheat code in The Explore Challenge. I found it way before I beat the game. My only objection to the cheat is that it makes it seem meaningless to make a level sometimes, knowing that people will cheat on it to get through. Maybe, with KSA, there could be a new anti-cheating option or block in the system bank?

If they want to cheat, the level editor is also easily accessible so I don't think that would work.

EDIT: And the save file.
Lurk more.

i also got the cheat first, actually beating the level was harder XD

in other words, anti-cheating is near impossible...

Of course, but if they do that, then they are not even really even playing through the level, and so aren't going to get the same enjoyment out of it as if they didn't use the level editor or cheat. I guess its up to them to decide whether they want to ruin the fun or not.
