Title: I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED

*READ THIS*

If the game is crashing on the title screen PLEASE RESTART and then report if that helps.

if the game is crashing while restarting, lower your graphical details. It'll reduce the blood splatter.

If you can't save, try and put your EXE in a different directory or run as Adminstrator to make sure it has write permissions.

Yes, Ironman is bugged. All gamejolters will have the challenge removed during the next release, though if you achieve it now, you should re-achieve it automatically.

Thanks for all the Excellent® feedback. Expect a patch to handle a bunch of this stuff in the coming days.

*READ THIS*


Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy: Gaiden is ready for public consumption. Things might be a bit buggy at first, but a few revisions later and things should be all smoothed out. I'm sure you'll all live though. The bugginess is sometimes part of the charm for the IWBTG experience, right?

So what is Gaiden? Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares -- it's a 3 stage episodic bite of new IWBTG action.  What about the future of Gaiden? Hard to say. Brave Earth is going to steal my attention until it's done, so don't expect more any time soon, but I surely will add more content at some point. How big will that content be? How many episodes will their be? Who cares, I'm playing it by ear.

So what's working, what's not working and whatever?

We have...

*New stage based gameplay
*3 Stages
*Configurable Controls with Gamepad support
*Trophies (also supported through Gamejolt)
*Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)
*A new button! Z to jump, X to shoot and X to BIIIONIC AAAARM
*Probably won't crash!


What isn't done?

*No fullscreen or resolution support.
*Probably needs a lot of optimization
*Probably has lots of bugs
*People wanna be able to fuck with people like I fucked with Floe. I might be able to come up with a way to do that in the future.
*Graphical options are basic. Sound options seem to be a little flighty.
*Some interface/menu stuff is kinda groudy and needs modification.
*Might still crash! (but unlike with MMF2, there is more I can do about it this time around.)


So if you have any problems, bare with me.

Also I'd recommend getting a Gamejolt account so you can share your trophies and times with other players! Sign-in is inside the trophy menu.

Game becomes unresponsive when I get killed by the zeroth Pirahna Plant
Game now crashes when I try to load game.

Game pretty much crashes whenever it has to write to disk, now that I try changing the options again.

Will try again tomorrow, if it happens again I'll see what I can do about getting a memory dump.


Running Windows XP SP 3, 1GB RAM. Probably shouldn't have installed it (a) into the same folder as IWBTG and (b) inside a Dropbox directory. Problems still occur even after moving it to a non-dropbox non-IWBTG folder - also why does the INI file already have a fullscreen option in it?

Game now crashes when I try to access pretty much anything. Had one crash while accessing the Trophies after a reinstall, and had another crash when entering the Key Config. Crashes whenever I try to use any of the save slots.

We should report the bugs that we found.

The graphics of the charging bullet dissapared in the stage 1-1, sometimes using the chain.

I love it, I passed the stage 1-1 and 1-2 at first time.

Title: Re: I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED
Post by: poppy on July 14, 2012, 11:01:47 pm
Just finished on medium mode, many things to note!

The 2nd stage is CONSIDERABLY harder than the other 2, it took me 36 minutes apparently, the other 2 each took less than 15, (ok to be fair, number 3 took almost 15)

The game crashed on the 2nd stage, either while dying to one of those missile guys or pressing restart immediately after being hit by said missile, it said to report this to the creator, which I am now. X_X;

At the end of stage 2, I wondered if maybe there was a secret something or another past the exit, so I jumped OVER the exit door, moved off the screen to the right and...well the lad went off screen, but I couldn't get him to come back, he didn't die or anything, he was just stuck offscreen. (update!) this also happens if you jump to the left at the very start of stage 3, and if you fall between SOME of the red crushers in level 2.

You can actually jump past the axe in stage 2 without taking care of it first...its... difficult to explain exactly what happens when you do this, (Can you just try it?) basically you can keep moving in that direction, and you shouldn't be able to in the first place alright.

The music in stage 2 is horrible in general, yes this IS a design flaw! XD

upon finishing stage 3, I was awarded the W.V.B.A. Champion trophy...and promptly noticed the time and deaths for each individual stage have all reset to 0's, which is most likely why I was awarded this trophy, the total numbers overall don't appear to have been affected though.

If you customize a controller instead of the keyboard, you still need to use the KEYBOARD until you reach the file select screen, at which point the controller will start functioning. (This seems consistant).

The last boss in level 2 (don't know his name...seriously who the hell is he?) wasn't making any sounds at all on my hard mode run, he he did on medium and very hard though.

If you fiddle with the trophy menus, sometimes, when you then highlight your files, the difficulties will display "easy" on each one that you highlight, seems to be entirely cosmetic though.

Oddities that may or may not be bugs:

The grappling hook doesn't work at point blank range? (probably not a bug but...)

The "Boss" box on the file select screen is blank even after beating bald bull?

The momentum you get from a charge shot while grappling is sometimes INSANELY fast, while other times, it moves at a slow (and usable) pace. Why is this? This was actually present when that Floe person was playing. (Who the hell is this guy anyway? I'm way WAY better than him!) -_-;

If you used your 2nd jump already, and you press the jump button while grappled and NOT swinging left or right at all, you will fall straight down instead of jumping? Because in this instance it seems to use the 2nd jump? (I wish I realized this at that one point in stage 2, but is this a bug? If you used the 2nd jump and ARE swinging left and right it jumps like you'd expect)

Actually its just functioning strangely period. Its not consistant.

The red platform immediately to your right at the start of level 2, (the one that moves up and down really fast) can be bypassed almost entirely, wait for it to stop spazzing out, then move over to its right side, and you can fall through a small gap, (its only on the right side that you fall through, and not the left)

The red things that try to crush you later (right before the saws) kill you if you touch their undersides. Isn't this hard enough?

Should I post new things I find in a NEW post, or just keep changing this one? Just started hard mode, beat first level, 3rd level is already selectable (is it supposed to be?) and the time and deaths for individual stages are still 0's.
Title: Re: I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED
Post by: Satire on July 14, 2012, 11:11:37 pm
0 crashes so far.

Gave up 175 deaths at the "Swing point surrounded by remote controlled drones."

I guess Boshy's more lenient on the "Cheap bosses VS Fair platforming."

This has "Fair bosses VS Cheap Platforming." Just like the last one. Hahaha.

Can't do it. I know for a damn fact I can do the rest since it doesn't have gimmick shooting with random chance. Ugh.

Well done Kayin. May your other game flourish and occupy your time so this dies an epic swan song.

Got to two crashes now; one after passing Zangief/Chun-Li (while getting shot at by the one guy I didn't kill before those two... right as I was about to save), and in the first sky room (swinging across the spike blocks) in the third level.

The Former was a 'program has stopped responding'; the Latter crashed outright.

Just got past Stage 1-1. My only wish is that Kayin release a version of Gaiden with the Twitch faces and the FGC references intact, they're what made me want to revisit these games after giving up. The game just isn't the same without Floe cursing when you die, the Gootecks laugh, or Mike Ross saying "YO MAN I WAS HUSTLED!" You made a game worthy of the stream monsters' gaze, and we'd like to enjoy what Floe enjoyed so much at EVO.

I do quite enjoy the game though. You've made the game look so much more appealing with the world map, Game Over screen, and header/footer when beginning a level/retrying.

Post by: Dagnarok on July 15, 2012, 12:47:42 am
Successful Hard Mode run is successful. ^_^  Now posting all bugs/issues/funzies I found along the way.

: Bug 1 • show


(http://img862.imageshack.us/img862/281/bug1g.jpg)

It's a little hard to see, but if you look between the 'Game over' and 'try again', you may notice some barrels floating in mid-air.  I died while holding onto a barrel, and it stayed in place.  Any barrels falling on top of THAT barrel would then roll around in very small movements, roughly the width of the standing barrel, before coming to stop... also standing up.

I thought that was pretty funny.


: Bug 2, but probably not • show


(http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/6426/bug2ki.jpg)

I'm clearly grappled onto the blue meshing in the background; though I'm certain the game is registering me onto the sphere area there.  More of a cosmetic issue, but I noticed the same thing in Stage 3 when I was trying to grapple the blocks, but instead was grappling the spikes.


: Major Slowdown is my name • show


(http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/6559/bug3t.jpg)

Getting killed my either of the two guys in this area results in the game slowing down significantly (the death pictured generates more slowdown).  I didn't test this with the third guy hiding up ahead.

Not a bug, but more for leaving a comment.


: Zangief Wins! • show


(http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/8908/bug4z.jpg)

I got past Chun-Li fast enough so that she didn't trigger her Reversal  of Spinning Bird Kick.  This is also the area where the game 'stopped responding' the first time (though in that run, the Reversal triggered).

Again, not a bug, but leaving a comment.


: TAKE ME WITH YOU! • show


(http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/6119/bug5l.jpg)

And here's the charging-up of the shot... with the charging up animation FOLLOWING THE PREVIOUS BULLET!  The bullet is on the upper-left at the edge of the screen, just... follow the charge....

You know, I kinda wish that, if I fell down on this screen, the car would run me over, and yelling out that one Simpson's line, "GET OFF THE ROAD, YOU FREAKING MANIAC!"


: Hurr hurr, I see what you did there, Kayin. • show


(http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/8531/bonusai.jpg)

Also, I didn't screen-cap it, but if you make it the next save point from here (assuming you're on hard mode), look at the bottom-left corner of that screen....


: Spot the difference • show


(http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/9057/bug6z.jpg)

Yet another cosmetic issue.  Looking at the two spikes that are raised, the right one is clearly marked differently from the left one.

It's almost like I could do something with the spike on the right....  (Not saying you can; I never tried too.)


: MORE FUNZIES! • show


(http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/5475/bonusb.jpg)

Hmmm... I wonder where I could be....

Also, in the Bald Bull room (the first phase), the Grapple can go THROUGH the doors; not that much happens if you do it.


So here's my death count and time taken:

Hey Satire guy, did you see the guy over to the RIGHT of the remote controlled drones who was...ya know, actually CONTROLLING them?

Yep.

Only barely though. If I want him onscreen to actually take the hit, I fall into the water.

In the rare event I manage to take him and his "unit" out, my lad refuses outright to jump after the swing jump (Fl0e did in his video, for reference, onto the barrel.) / won't chain up through the ceiling.

Otherwise I can just leave it on for some sweet music. Doesn't bug me any.

Post by: poppy on July 15, 2012, 02:11:48 am
Yeah the grappling is slightly weird, but GENERALLY (at least, not 100% sure) if you used your 2nd jump before hand, you still won't have it until you land.
Title: Re: I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED
Post by: poppy on July 15, 2012, 02:15:13 am
Alright, I'm not posting any more bugs in my other post, because its getting WAAAAY too big!

If you hold the retry button, and minimize the game's window, it will keep acting as if your holding it even when you weren't (on the map screen anyway). Boosted the 1000 deaths's achievement in about a minute with this, (its easy enough anyway but still)

Just now realized you can use the arm on the homing missiles, and when you do, ALL the missile guys in the room die instantly? It also doesn't necessarily change the missiles direction.

Seriously why am I the only one finding this stuff?

Which leaves me perplexed. How the hell do you do it if you can't jump after a swing dismount jump? The ceiling/floor above the falling ground that helps none isn't exactly the solution (Despite it being the only option) since upon getting on it, soldier instantly guns you down + barrel blocks charge shot. I'm just lost.

If you want two jumps from your Grapple, you HAVE to have only jumped once previously.  Trust me, I learned that the Hard way.

Hurp-Derp.

And in my case, that just doesn't work.

The answer was to not have jumped at all, after obfuscating stupidity wore off and sheer alcohol poured in.

YES! Downloading now! Damn timezones. I missed the release.

Two typos in OP (and Gamejolt post) that I happened to notice.
Near the start, "Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy".
Further down in the list, "*Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)" (missing space before brackets, also no need for Capital "O" in only.
Minor things. Just felt like pointing them out.

EDIT: Oh goddamn it. On startup I get "Failed to load plugin C:\users\ellipsis\Temp\cap84.tmp\12.csx (126)". This could just be a Linux/wine thing though. Anyone else had it?
Any idea which plugin "cap84.tmp\12.csx" even is?

Seriously? I've been trying this for 30 minutes now! Though thinking about it, its hard to believe anyone would do something so odd when the game JUST came out...

I don't believe this, is there something I'm not being told? Like can you start at the 2nd save point in that room or something? This doesn't seem like anyone would've consciously chosen to do this!

What point do you have to reach exactly?

Oh I almost forgot, I actually found another glitch in this process, the missile guy all the way on the left, sometimes the missile he fired (which was supposed to go to the right where I am) would just suddenly shoot to the left, its kinda weird looking when it happens...

I encountered a glitch in 1-1 on the part of the level with the fish and the flamethrower. On the second floor I grappled straight up and glitched inside the castle/building. I dissapeared right where the left window is on the second floor. I couldnt move or anything but it was pretty cool. Its only happened once and i cant seem to re-create it, so no its not a big deal.

*Edit As soon as I typed this i tried again and it did the same thing. Ill try to get a vid of it up so I can show it. Second time it happend I stood right beneath the left window and diagonal left grappled and went through the wall

1078 deaths, 4 hours 4 minutes. This game is a totally different version of hard from the last one, but I like it. I shuddered when I discovered there was a grappling hook, and was not looking forward to seeing how you'd hurt us with it. End boss fight is AMAZING and great job with it.

Hey, surprised and thrilled to see an official continuation of IWBTG. Downloaded as soon as I was notified it existed.

Unfortunately, I'm having a ton of trouble even running the game.  It opens fine, navigate with the keyboard to options, change controls annnnd...

It freezes almost EVERY time (or the input stops inputting, and i'm stuck in that screen until i close the program) One time i convinced it to accept all the inputs, and started the game, only to die on the map screen (hilarious, actually, i loved it).  But upon dying, my 'retry' button wouldn't work, and i was stuck on the death screen until i restarted it.  Been screwing with it for 20 minutes. Tried administrator. Tried compatibility mode. Tried moving its folder to program files and running it there. Nothing seems to fix the input problem, and if i can't input, i certainly can't play the game.

I'm a transcended Guy myself. I'm eager to give this a shot.  Hell, i sort of HAVE to.  But I can't even get the game running long enough to get to the first area.  What should i do?

Well, Zangief killed me a few times in 1-2, and then the game crashed. Now it won't go past the intro, crashing as soon as I enter the save select screen. Removing everything does nothing. I guess I'll have to wait for an update.

I'm having issues with the game. I already opened it once, I beat level 1-1, and I'm currently in 1-2, but the game doesn't open anymore. It just crashes.

I attached a screenshot of the game in the main screen with a window saying (in english): "iwbtgg.exe stopped working. Window's searching for a solution of this problem". (Yeah, riiiiight...) It's basically the same window that appears when IWBTG crashes.

This is really annoying.

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT

I don't wanna hear anyone's crash report if they don't reboot first. If that doesn't work, then I got something else I wanna try but I haven't gotten to because rebooting is AWESOME.

Seriously, it's a strange font issue. Basically the game extracts 2 fonts and windows sometimes doesn't know what to do with them until you reboot.

It's Bug??
vs stage 1-3 boss, at ground stage, Player can sometime hold 2 bad apples at once.
If Boss was damaged over 4 bad apples(not 3), player cannot go under-ground stage.

Are you supposed to be ables to choose between stage two and three?
Or is beating two supposed to unlock three?
Edit: Pic attached.
I swear I didn't hack the game or edit the screenshot.

Once i gave up on customizing the controls, or getting the thing to stop freezing when it tried to use the controller, I played through it.
Then i played through it again, and youtube'd~

If you're having problems and NEED some help, i explain what to do in trouble spots~

Fabulous game, guy. WAY better than the original, and still quite difficult. The trial and error is still there, but i didn't generally hate it for screwing me over, it was usually funny~

Beat it some hours ago! Hard mode, btw.
The game is awesome, as expected, I didn't like the idea of a claw-like-whatever-it's-called thing, but i kind of liked it later.
I'm missing Trophie 1 in 1-1 and Trophies 1 and 2 in 1-2.. As I read, I know how to get the 1st Trophy in 1-2, but no idea of how to with the other 2.

Son of a bitch! The reason I couldn't do it was because I thought you had to make it all the way to the DAMN SAWBLADES without killing those missile guys thanks to that guys stupidly vague description! (I wasn't using that save point because I figured I'd just have to start over)

In all fairness, I came fairly close to doing that. X_X;

Ok, I'm not editing my old posts, because who will think to look back at them now?...

anyway, 2 bugs with bald bull!

1. On this one try (on my fourth file IF that matters) no matter how many rotten fruits I hit him with, it didn't knock him out, I hit him with EVERY rotten fruit on screen, and he didn't go down! He killed
me at some point or another.

2. On the VERY next try, (still same file) I hit him with the 3 fruits, hit him with 1 of the spike walls, and for whatever reason, he didn't move far enough down for the 2nd spike wall to hit him, the 2nd one missed HIM altogether, and it killed me.

The next try, the fight went normally and I beat him.

Edit: Not necessarily a bug, but my computer goes into the screensaver mode while playing this game, isn't there a way YOU can fix that? I don't doubt that there maybe a setting on MY computer somewhere that fixes it but I don't need to do it with a certain other game. (Thats in a similar sized window just so you understand the context)

So Kayin I did an LP on your game about to up the final parts it took me 3 hours 45 minutes 1020 deaths on Hard Blind and I must say I wasn't impressed with Stage 2 in fact it made me pissed. The overuse of the grappling hook kind of got irritating as well, but I really enjoyed all of the traps, achievements, the bosses, and a majority of the game especially the final boss. I have a question about that boss.

Hi Kayin, I haven't gone through and read every post to see if this has been addressed. But I figure the squeakiest wheel always gets the oil so,  after my full playthrough (649 deaths total.)

Title: Re: I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED
Post by: Ellipsis on July 16, 2012, 06:31:58 pm
Got it running on Linux via wine.
Constructs error was totally useless.
However when I ran from terminal wine itself showed a useful error.
A lack of MFC42.DLL.
Install winetricks then run "winetricks d3dx9".
This will complete, now just go online and download MFC42.DLL and place it with the exe for the game.
Fixed. Now the game works perfectly on linux.
Ok, now errors:
The game has no favicon (well just the construct icon in the taskbar, this is kind of ugly).
In opening storylines shows very slowly. Far to slowly to be the rate anyone actually reads at.
At the end of the opening story it remains black for quite a long time before returning to the main menu.
Controls are never actually mentioned in game.
You use "up" to move right from trophies to options. This might be done on purpose but it's still kind of strange.
Music does not loop on save select screen. (or I think in some other bits of the menu)
Using mouse for gamejolt login makes no sense when you use the keyboard for everything else.
Can't shoot on map screen.
Falling in water makes splashes that overlap land. Falling in water on left of starting place looks like you splash at wrong point from perspective. This also happens in the first level.
When parachuting in you can still turn around, only when you release pressing a button will the player sprite snap back into the correct position. You can also shoot/charge while "get ready" is on screen and the charge appears at the bottom of the screen.
If you charge-shoot in the parachute then wait till the last bullet goes and charge again charge particles get dragged after the last bullet. The charge particles also often overtake the bullet itself.
When you jump off the parachute onto land the screen slowly shifts right in a strange way.
When you die the kid does not really get destroyed, he just goes invisible. You must make sure he freezes and gravity no longer acts. This also existed in the original IWBTG and led to almost every invincibility glitch as well as strange screen changing after death.
Also, if you're charging a bullet and die the bullet glow remains and the charge sound loops.
When you part charge but not full charge then release nothing happens at all. You should shoot a small bullet.
If you try to charge another bullet just after releasing a charged bullet you do not get charge graphics until the last bullet goes totally out of memory and is destroyed. Although I think that charging action still works. I think this is because you have only one particle system for all charge effects. You could just prevent the player from charging another bullet until the last is destroyed to work around this.
If you charge, then use a safe you'll fire but only after you leave the save will the graphics of the end of the charge bullet fire effect show.
That falling thing after the first save sometimes falls and sometimes doesn't when you try jump on it.
You can kill the first guy who throws metal blades at you (metalman?) Before he spawns (while he is in fact invisible), just charge shoot where he will spawn.
At the start you don't start until "get ready" goes away but the rest of the game you can play while "get ready" is onscreen.
On difficultys where the starting save doesn't exist I'm not sure how to reach the first platform.
ESC doesn't do anything (maybe it should pause/quit/go to menu)
No pause.
If you grapple hook when in a save and then press up you'll get dragged out the save but still save and be frozen while the save continues.
Sometimes metalman double shoots when you first meet him. Sometimes only once.
I can't graple-hook up when I start in parachute or most of the time I can't but sometimes I can. I'm not that sure why.
If you graple-hook onto something above you while standing on the ground you go through the floor a bit.
After death it's silent but you can still hear metalman shooting bullets at your corpse over and over.
After the 2nd save if you graple-hook onto that falling thing as it goes of screen it kind of looks like it moves sideways.
I jumped off the falling thing and graple-hooked onto the bridge and swung there. The metalman guys talked along then fell through the bridge onto me. I died leaving just the graple-hook swinging backwards and forwards forever. The camera still follows it.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'm sleepy and only had a couple of minutes to play it. I'll play further in a bit.
You know at one point at least I wanted to be a game bug tester because my friends always commented that I always accidentally found loads of bugs in every game I played. :P
Hope that list is not to daunting or badly written.
It'd be nice if you could put the "running on Linux with wine" steps in the opening post.
Thanks. I'm going to go sleep now.
Great game so far. ^^

: bugs with small spoilers of first level • show

Hold up in a save and it saves, keep holding and the save music spams and sounds terrible.
The metal man paratroopers seem to incorrectly fall through the ground a lot. Also when they die they go under the top of the water then re appear under it. It messes up the perspective.
You can't stand on those orbs you grapple-hook off?
In hindsight maybe you meant for the grapple-hook to keep swinging after death?
The metalman paratroopers sometimes airdrop on your spawn, sometimes don't.
Sometimes a metalman paratrooper lands on top layers, sometimes he parachutes straight through it.
You can kill the guy that spawns those metal floaty things just after the 3rd save from across the screen so he stops spawning more. Not sure if you meant for this to be possible.
The metalman paratroopers never shoot(?)
The floor just after falls and does the same thing as the troopers when it goes through the water. They should go *under* the see.
The troopers normally just walk into the water. But sometimes they will actually turn around when they reach the edge?
You can't hook onto the underside above the falling ground?
The achievements for number of deaths should be related to the total number over all saves. Not the number on one save. You might have already done this though. I'm not totally sure.
On the furthest right hand side of the map it looks like the sea kind of ends early. The wave effects. Might have been done on purpose.
The guy in the window who shoots are you is totally happy to shoot backwards at you (the other way to the way his gun points).
At the end of barrrals part on top layer the music fades every time you jump. Very strange.
I don't like how lost of the time the hook will go through the red flooring but sometime like the bridge or just before Donkey Kong monkey the hook will attach to the same type of red blocks.
Above Donkey Kong if you jump left you can see paratroopers spawn out of nothing, they may even spawn on top of you.

Now I'm stuck.

OMG, you can grab them. That's just plain awesome.
Erm. There's a safespot just to the left of him where you can grab the barrels and throw them at him.
I beat the level! Yay. The next level unlocked and I walked to it after it did but was killed by the falling green thing.
Then I pressed right straight away and moved to the second level before the path had unlocked showing it. And now the second level is marked as complete and I can go to the third already?
I'm not sure, are they meant to unlock together? (1-2 and 1-3)
Yeah, I'm getting the feeling I'm just being a twat reporting all these bugs. I think I'll stop, sorry guys. I don't look for them on purpose. I just find them >.>.

I played through the cursed campaign, not too bad. But on the final boss,
: show
The Sandman (Bald Bulls Hardmode Replacer)
I hung onto one of the globes within the arena when he spawned, and he got stuck like this. There's nothing you can do but restart this.

If you are on this boss, just try it. Hang from one of the globes while he's spawning and when he lands, he'll end up like this.

Update: It seems he can do this at any time, except for when you are suposed to grapple the globes. It seem's he can't uppercut properly.

Holla', holla', holla'. Just wanted to share a few quick thoughts about IWBTG:G.

First of all, a massive thanks to Kayin for another gem of a game. Conglaturation!
This installment totally blindsided me as I was checking up on the Evo stream for possible Daigo sightings. Genuinely a really pleasant surprise and Floe was perfect in his a role as the whipping boy. Mix IWBTG:G, Floe and Chen-isms and you've definitely got something stream worthy, for sho'. Abridged version. ABRIDGED! ;D

So, yeah. Thanks, Daigo.    Daigo <3.

Encountered a bug whilst time-trialling earlier: Not a big deal at all, just a little Bermuda Triangle action after grappling to one of the blocks.

Kid was clearly embarassed at my attempts to chase down the 1-1 record and decided to make like a tree and get out of there.

Short wishlist:

Completely ignorant to how plausible adding something like that would be so apologies if I've just suggested you to do the game designer's equivalent of Seven Summits.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in Kayin dismissing IWBTG  and :G naysayers with grand eloquence; give this tigsource thread a scan. Well worth a read.

Look at that FGC swagga. Thanks for the feedback, Lisp!

And yeah, that thread is hilarious. Some people are trying to actually say something and I appreciate that, but most of them are just a bunch of dumbasses.

It's funny, because I feel a little arrogant in that thread, but it's not because I'm so great (i'm clearly not), just that most people on tigsource are soooo bad. I heard the joke is that anyone who succeeds immediately stops posting there. There is plenty to criticize about both games, especially I Wanna Be the Guy. Heck, the changes in Gaiden show where  I think the most valid criticisms are. Most of them aren't ready for that conversation. Which is fine -- who says they have to play my game? I certainly don't. But then don't sit there passive aggressively posting bullshit as I talk circles around everyone. At least the people engaging me, while not always on point, are helping along some healthy discourse which is good for both sides.

To be fair, I've had a lot of defenders, or, at the very least, genuinely smart people in there. Even one of the Mods stepped in to say "... Why ya'll be retards to this guy?". But they can't fight it back. Too much salt to go around.

It's funny that the guy who started this argument and inspired me to post is honestly trying to salvage the conversation. Hats off to Phubans.

Not sure if this was said already and it isn't really that big of a problem, but I got a small audio bug that seems to happen to me in both the original version and the patched version.  The first time I go through stage 1-2, things are working properly.  The second time I go through it, when I reach Sagat, the "tiger" sound doesn't work anymore.  Restarting seems to fix it once, then it goes back to no "tiger" after the first run of the stage.

On another note, why did I get by a giant plane last night as "a gift from Nodal"?

Edit: It's been a long time since I've been to the IWBTF, Kayin, is that avatar from a manga, or is it a giant cherry that you drew?  If it's the latter, I kind of definitely want it as the wallpaper on my phone.

Alright i was stupid enough to bind every control to the same key. How do I reset the games controls?

Delete controls.txt and restart the game.  It will generate a new controls.txt with default controls.

If you are trying to bind controls to a gamepad and it's not working, try instead to keep the default keyboard controls and use Joy2key to map your gamepad controls to the various keyboard keys.  I was getting the same problem, where I'd map the controls to a PS3 controller, using square, X, and O, but all of the controls ended up mapping to the last button I pressed.

Or maybe it's fixed in the patched version, who knows.

It's not really explained well like most controls in this game, but you can actually skip the boss animation by mashing jump+shoot+grapple.

That could probably be improved somehow. I've seen a handful of people get stuck in the elevator shaft at 1-2 because they didn't realise you can shoot the arm in different angles, and I didn't realise you can charge the gun until midway through the second level.

Well the original felt a lot like "real" difficulty with "you're a dick" moments here and there at the end of hard parts. There's a lot more "you're a dick" moments in IWBTGG. Things that kill you that you can't possibly avoid being killed by first time. In actual difficulty terms IWBTGG is fairly ok once you know where the traps are and get the patterns down.

Huh?

"here and there"? I'm pretty sure there's more traps in the first two rooms of Tyson's route than there is in all of stage 1-2, and I'd also probably put money on there being more traps in Tyson's route than 1-2 and 1-3 combined.

Strangely enough, I think the sawblades are so much easier in curse mode.

The long pause between drops is what makes it a nightmare section for me in the regular game; in curse mode there's a quick, friendly tempo to the drops.

No you didn't.
Yes I did. Like 3 times.

So you're opening a file that says iwbtggv1d1b?

Can someone please answer something for me? About this upside down mode....if I download the latest patch is there an option to still play in this mode? I'm kinda loving the challenge and want to continue playing this mode as an option even after downloading the patch.

It's probably possible to achieve the same effect by changing monitor or graphic card settings or something :D

I'm Baack, And I've got a new one for ya. Now you may or may not be aware of this much, but I like to screw around with Bald Bull. And i found something interesting.

Observe the Location we are, Where i Am, and the fact that he's stuck. The minute you enter the room, you can easily re-jump out of the room and do whatever you want because all of the other triggers don't seem to work. Don't get me wrong, you can still die from spikes and stuff. (Personal Opinion Warning) I do believe you should make it so that a sort of cut-scene ensues where the kid walks to the center to make this not possible. That or simply place invisible blocks over where the door is after the player enters the room. Or leave it be, I just want you to be aware of this.


This Glitch is now Irrelevant due to the games newest patch being released seeing as it was fixed.

Meh, the grappling hook is still pretty screwy, what with the sometimes ludicrous swinging from charged shots and what not...

Did everyone lose interest at this point?
