Ult, that's the plan. Sergio was actually planning on making a second draft of the cutscene he drew for the endgame of the level so once he's done I'll release a second version with the issues addressed.

In the meantime I've rounded up my other beta-testers and have locked them in my torture chamber to punish them for not finding the sequence-break. Rest assured they will never make that mistake again... or any other! Bwa ha ha ha ha! (I've become all angsty and evil now that Sergio's beaten me to 100 stars. Now is the winter of my discontent...)

Thanks so much for the video, Ix!

Haven't had time to actually play this to the end yet (I'm avoiding reading comments here) but I have to say that Talps has done it again. Great work!

Great level Talps! I'd forgotten about most of the help I provided over the years. Playing the level felt nostalgic as different parts reminded me of forgotten discussions, custom sprites I made, and custom sprites I fixed the transparency on for you. Most of the tricks you did with KS+ features and flag/shift logic were executed so well that I hardly noticed they were happening. There was one in particular that stumped me for awhile as to how you pulled it off.*

A slow summer at work and I've started playing Knytt Stories again.  I'd forgotten how much I love this little game!

I think I need a little help.  Searching for the glowing mushrooms in the crater and seem to be at a dead end.  Should I have already found the umbrella?  I don't have it and can't seem to progress any farther.  I'll keep searching, I suspect I either made a big mistake, or I'm missing something obvious!

EDIT:  HA!  The power of posting.  Found it, very creative!

I'm stuck at the point where you need to find the yellow key. Crater Field can't be navigated without something like umbrella.

Hey GreyFace,
Spoiler: (click to show/hide)
Hope you're having fun!

I have been working on an updated version of this to remove the broken ending besides a few other fixes. I think my main reason for not posting it is due to a desire to make some really big changes that I don't really have the inspiration for. When I have a few hours free I'll do a last check that everything in my copy is ok and post it up. More ambitious changes will have to sit out unless I have a big spurt of motivation one day.

Cool, meanwhile I'll play some other levels. I also always find myself in the trap of starting some ambitious new changes and ending up not releasing things for far too long.

Thanks for the tip, got through it. I assume removing of the broken ending wouldn't add any new content, so I won't miss anything with the current version, right?

BTW, the level is fantastic so far!
