[Small][Tutorial][Easy/Very Hard] Ball Tutorial v2.1
« on: April 15, 2011, 16:29:51 »
This level teaches you to play KS in the ball mode and also contains a challenging Advanced difficulty mode. To play it you need to install Extended Version mod first. If you don't know what 'ball mode' I am talking about, you definitely must play it!

Both the mod and the level can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/sergroj/ks

Version 2 has two new secret endings and is updated to reflect changes in KS Ex.

Interesting. I had to re-install KSEx, but then it worked fine. It would take some getting used to. I didn't try the Very Hard setting. I'm terrible at WaDF and I'll probably be just as bad at this.

Wow, this is amazing! I hadn't looked at KSEx before but I'll definitely keep track of what you do with it!

I was not here for few months, but wow, I am imppresed. To be honest I do not like "shape" of that ball, missing old WADF ball, is it possible to use just different picture of ball ?
Still, really good job ! Pitty not many people around and we will not see to many levels with ball.
Also I have tried your extended level and I  was impressed. Perhaps will make some minor changes in my levels with such a great stuff around. Thanks and keep working !

Thanks for all feedback.

Yes, you can use custom graphics as well as custom movement parameters, all that can be controlled from a level script or a global user script. It is also possible to use animated ball in your level. Give me the graphics you want to use and I'll make a script. IMO, WaDF ball would be too big for KS. In any case it would feel different from WaDF due to differences in movement mechanics.
It is sad to see that there's not much level making going around, but Nifflas' levels can be played with a ball (the least playable of them is Underwater Adventure due to one challenge with a button) and there surely are other such levels, especially environmental. So far I've only tried your Frozen Mountain with a ball and it's not possible.

P.S. Has anyone tried the Advanced difficulty yet?

nice I couldn't beat advanced though, gonna try later again and perhaps some other levels. It is well done only I agree with drakkan if you get nicer ball sprites to go with it's movement (like in wadf) you have a real pro-looking mod. btw it is.

I tried the advance mode too and couldn't figure out how to progress past a certain point, if I recall correctly.

I'm too stuck in advanced mode. In easy I completed the game.

Spoiler: where I'm stuck (click to show/hide)

EDIT: oh my, I got past.

Apparently, it was doing 2 pushes up because I held the up key too long.

EDIT2: okay, am stuck again...
Spoiler: where I'm stuck now... (click to show/hide)

EDIT3: yay, I found a new key that I must've missed during the easy section. I didn't levitate (aka use the umbrella). By holding D you can enable the umbrella. I tried the down arrow in the easy section and since you don't really need it there, I didn't found it as not getting it. :P

I didn't got to that transporter though, but I know how to do it. Its just a bit too hard.
Spoiler: I got this far (click to show/hide)

So... Who needs help? X)

Cool, congratulations! :) I'm glad you did most of the challenges and found all secrets in Advanced mode. Do you think Very Hard is the right label for Advanced mode difficulty? I was thinking about changing it to Hard, but I guess I'll leave it at Very Hard.
As I understand it, the level is somewhat fragmentary, lacking some middle ground between two modes. The secrets are fine it seems.

Its hard if you don't do the secrets. Very hard if you do the secret too.

EDIT: And its lunatic if you only play the hard version, not the easy version, and thus miss some valuable info X)

An update. I returned the detector I accidentally erased in v2.0, I also added two texts in a secret area.
