Jeudi 8 septembre, nouvelle version :)

Hi,

Here is again a new version (SpaceGuitarist you were just in time !)

I changed the way the language files are copied: now those files are overwritten if the game exe file date is newer than your txt file. Which will be usually the case when you upgrade the game.
So:

WARNING NEW BEHAVIOR, if you made unsubmitted changes in some bOxOn_text_??.txt files backup them before running the new version.

I added in all languages a (c) in front of 2011 in credits.
(I didn't manage to put it at the right place in hebrew )

I added a new text line (the last one) which says: "Buy the Full Version"
It's a web link at the bottom of the levels list that opens your browser on the bOxOn page where the PayPal button will be.

Added a real feedback for mouse over on the levels list... (I hate unconsistent interface as Odysseus )

Buy the full version is "Kup pełną wersję" in Polish - in case you'd like to add that!

Yeah I think it's good to have it translated as well.

"Compre o jogo completo!" in port.

@Fred: I see you added us in the Special Thanks ... that's great Could you replace StreGGy with Emilio Bologna when this gets public? Thanks a lot in advance! I'll always be aviable if the full version needs more translating

EDIT: I tested the game on my new laptop. I'm writing this just to have you informed: this laptop I have is only for stodying and working. It has a very weird resolution (1024x600). The game only starts in windowed mode and in best fit mode. The problem is that in windowed mode I can't see the whole window and I can't even move it, so I can't actually play. In centred mode it doesn't work at all, and I'm forced to kill the application. In best fit mode it's possible to play: the central part where the actual game is works fine, but at its left and at its right the screen flashes, you can see the desktop and a black "layer" which appears and disappears. I assure you I have the last video drivers aviable. The game actually works fine if I set a "normal" resolution, but this messes up the whole screen.

New Version 1.1.4

Thank you Odysseus and ChaosFish, they should be in the last version

@Streggy: Try the last version ! The game now should start with an accurate resolution that fit your screen (window or full screen).
About the residual pixels around your screen in full screen mode, I reproduced it on a machine with an intel video chip. I can't do anything to really fix it, but i can try to avoid/hide them. So run the game, go to the levels selection screen, drag them up and down to see those remaining pixels, then hit the X key to toggle the fix, they should disapear. The X key toggle a flag that is called "Border Fix" in the configuration file. X key will do nothing visible on a machine without this issue, and the game might be slower. Check out your configuration file.
you said 'The game actually works fine if I set a "normal" resolution, but this messes up the whole screen.' Did you do that in the configuration file ? if yes you may have forgot to set a good "Block Size", check the examples of valid resolution in the config file.

By the way, if the player double clicks the music on/off note it cycles through all the musics (+1 every double click) .

I was actually talking about the computer's resolution, sorry if I was unclear. The new version works better: best fit mode lets me see almost everything: levels can be easily played with no problems now. The only trouble is in selecting level four : the level button is 70% covered by the ingame right bar.

Anyway, I just found out that if I right click on the .exe, go to --> proprieties --> compatibility and check "run in 640x480", there are no glitches at all: the game works fine, everything is displayed on screen!

--

Has anything else changed in this version? I was testing the new x button feauture, when I decided to start everything over. I deleted the boxon files in the roaming directory: now the game stops after loading and only creates boxon_user_profile.txt
I have this problem only on my lapton. Moving these files from my pc to my laptop solves this.

Updated the Chinese translation ("buy full version"). Hope it's not too late.

Can you use my real name in the credits (Adrien Grandemange), and my girlfriend's name (Chen ShengJing) ?

When will the full version be released ? My girlfriend asks for it everyday, she is addicted to the game. (By the way, she's playing LBA2 for the first time these days, and she seems to enjoy it a lot: yesterday we were walking in the street, going back home, and she was singing "C'est Sendell qui a son nid, dans le coeur de la planète..." loudly !!!).

@link: no it's not too late, a new version is coming.
Lite and Full version are the same except a few differences and obviously the amount of levels. So both are progressing.
Full version is about to be testable Chen will not have enough time to finish LBA2

The Full version will need one (2?) more sentences, I hope it's not too much asking, thanks a lot to all of you for what you already did.

@Streggy: glad to have it working, but your crash at launch without bOxOn user directory seems odd. You did well by copying the directory content. Please try hit again with the next version (close to the end of the week I think).

FRed.

An observation:
You can use the Space/Enter/arrow keys to play inside the level, but you can't do that in the menus. So in order to play you still must use the mouse. And if you press Enter while in the menu you get sent straight inside the game without being able to choose a level.

It was mainly a test to see if the game is playable on a mobile phone with just the cursor and the middle button. But, as some disabled persons can only interact with a joystick I keep it in the game like this, just in case. Somebody should set up and run the game then he can leave the player just playing.
I had some trouble with menus (don't remember what) so it's just a small implementation. If someone asks for it, I may do a full implementation.

Depends how much work it is. If its just sub half hour, Id say add it.
I tend to prefer just using the keyboard if Im using a netbook (hate touchpads on them :P).

I remember now, it's easy to add the keyboard/hand in the menus because they work as the game BUT it's not the case of the levels selector... nothing is ready for a moving selection here (the keyboard is used here for scrolling and the highlighted frame is to indicate the LAST button level).

I'll have a look, but I'm working on the registration/download system right now.
Chen is waiting...

Hey, that's a really cool game!
It had me puzzling all day and I couldn't stop

*Finished the five lvls btw!

Though there's something that got me wondering; I couldn't reset the style of the boxonites. I couldn't find any config file that stored the setting, so I figured it must be saved in the application (which I couldn't believe), so I tested with a different executable. This hadn't any effect and that amazed me. Then I went to %appdata%, and found some files there. Some language files and some images, but still no config file Is there a way to isolate these settings so I can archive them separately from the game and keep hold of the default?

In the folder AppData/Roaming/bOxOn/ there's a file called "bOxOn_User_Profile.txt"
All your personal preferences are stored in this file.
The Box-Styles are most likely in the 4th line (Default=' "User Style" = 0,1,2,3,4,5')

Try if that works for you.
