Thanks! How lol, I didn't check the other filenames between the textfiles that all looked like language files. I've got XP and Pictograms view though, I couldn't immediately see this because of the long names.

I've finished level one and two in amazing times
(don't mention the half hour score for lvl4, I went afk and didn't pauze)

Hi McKalling,
Thank you for your comment !

Thank you Leoboe for the good answer.

New lite version and full version

Hello,
I uploaded a new version of bOxOn lite (actually it was 2 days ago, that's why mcKalling screenshot shows the last version).
I changed 2 levels in it, and now "real" level number (from the full version) are displayed in the list. I hope it will give a better feeling of the range of difficulty you can find in the game.

The full version is ready to be tested !

Those who helped me here, can have it right now ! Send me an email or private message with your name and email address, and you will (should?) receive an (manually triggered) automated email with a download link.

I added two more sentences in the full version:
"Input Email" = "Input your email then RETURN"
"Wrong Email" = "Wrong email !"

Fred.

Well when I changed the style of the boxonites, the style of the menubuttons also changed. This led to the result that I couldn't read some of the buttons that were having a darker background. I messed around a bit with the styles, and then wanted to revert back.

Now that I found the config file, I can do just that
But it would be nice if somehow you could control the color of the font of the menubuttons, or that it will automatically adjust to the style used.

It's really cool you can change the style of the boxonites in the same way you play the game

Cool! Now I just need an ipod or something, to play it with a touchscreen.

Here's the updated portuguese version. I am not sure if "Input your email then RETURN" means pressing the enter/return key on the keyboard or if the person should click a button named return on the screen, or if the person should just go back, using the usual back button of the game.

I assumed it is about pressing the enter/return key, please let me know if it's something else...

EDIT: Oh, ok, now that I've seen it in the full version, it is indeed just enter, nevermind then.

Achetez la version complète de bOxOn pour 1599€ seulement
Isn't that a bit too expensive, or is it missing a comma?

Got the link, I'll do my best to find bugs.

I'd change the English translation from "Input your email then RETURN" to "Input your email and press Enter"
(The key is more wildly known as Enter and ALLCAPS is unpleasant. "then RETURN" doesn't make a valid sentence.)

It was good-old Return in the Commadore days, but now, sadly, its Enter indeed

I think that the level select menu is too slow (maybe some shortcut buttons like 100 - 200 - 300- 400 could help?). Also, scrolling a lot in that menu is a pain in the eyes, at least for me

You can scroll the list with:

-the mouse wheel
-Drag and "throw" with the mouse
-arrow keys
-Page Up and Page Down keys
-Home and End keys (top and bottom)

The list is set to the last level you played or you are playing when you come back.

Is it ok for you ?

OK, but for this price you get only 3 free upgrades. The life time license is more expensive

Seriously, the price should be 4.99€. What do you think ?

I don't know about prices myself.
IMHO, I think every game should be free for players. The expenses of creating a game should come from elsewhere. But that's just an impossible ideal I guess.

Well, getting anything for free is impossible.
It would either be direct pay, tax's, or advertising.
We have advertising on Android and web games - works enough to pay for very small game projects if you can make something popular.
Tax's meanwhile would be unfair, as we all play different amounts of games and its a luxary anyway.
One change that could work is if we paid for games, but it was all a bit more modular....so we paid very very little to "get" a game, but the more we play it the more we pay.
So games which people play a lot are rewarded....flashy games with big advertising but people dont play much after they buy it wouldn't do so well.

Of course, thats also pretty impossible too as messuring would cost more then its worth. Well, outside systems like OnLive.
