  1. Revamping my level set pages

    OK I'm finally getting around to updating the CC2 solvability list layout... It appears to be working now, although adding levels beyond the "total" number doesn't work yet, and now deleting those extra levels beyond the total seems to have broken for CC1 too... Hopefully will all be running smoothly soon...or in another month. Edit - if I'm understanding my code correctly, apparently deleting "extra" levels never did work on CC1 either... I just have to do it manually in the database for now I guess... I did tweak and fix some other issues.
  2. Revamping my level set pages

    Yeah at this point the only way to delete a set is actually to take it out of the database, so I only leave that to me I'll delete it. Thanks to everyone who has been updating the information! I noticed as I was looking at the pages, there appears to be some strange bug where no matter who edits a set, it is often showing me as the one to last modify it... I'll have to look into that. edit - Apparently all new sets were getting saved with me as the editor... This has been fixed now for future new sets, but the other ones were still saved incorrectly.
  3. Revamping my level set pages

    Another bump to this topic... I have now added the CC2 level set section to my site. It is horribly out of date, so I would appreciate any and all help in getting it up to date. http://pillowpc2001.net/levels/index.php?set=2 I eventually plan on correcting the solvability tables...right now they still look like the CC1 table and show/save a column for MS and Lynx. I have a note to ignore this for now and just use the MS column for submitting solvability, but hopefully this will be fixed soon.
  4. Downloads section updated dates

    Ah OK that makes sense...I did realize the closer I looked that it was only a few designers' sets that were updated, not all of them. Thanks!
  5. Downloads section updated dates

    Anyone know why almost every level set in the CC1 download section now says it was last updated either this past Sunday or Monday?
  6. As evidenced by my level output in the last few years, I definitely feel like my creativity has been dropping as I get older...although I think it is a combination of two things, which others already mentioned - 1) lack of time/real life getting in the way, and 2) being a perfectionist - lately I don't even want to start sitting down to design a level unless I can envision exactly how I want it to turn out...which typically results in me never sitting down to design a level. But then even these I still don't always end up completely satisfied with, so I probably need to just sit down and open up an editor one of these days and see what I come up with.
  7. In case anyone is interested - Richard Porteous has sent me the link to the source code of his Rommy's Gauntlet CC port of Android: https://GameExperiments@bitbucket.org/GameExperiments/chipsretro.git
  8. MikeL3

    When I get back to my computer I'll have to check if I have a video of it... but yes that chip might be tricky to get...maybe downright impossible. And thanks, glad you're enjoying it! Maybe someday it will grow again.
  9. bobdabaron's scores

    Yes, that would be correct - well, I've solved all the levels in Lynx, I just didn't post them all on the scoreboard yet Yeah in the old days I was an optimizer, but lately I seem to have lost the time and patience to do much of that. I've been trying to optimize a bit as I go through CCLP4, but I'm not banging my head against the wall if I can't get those last few seconds...
  10. bobdabaron's scores

    That MikeL2 score puts you at 3rd place on the scoreboard. Congrats! Let me know if you want me to add you to the scoreboard (and what name you would like to go by), or if you want to report your scores yourself through the automatic system you can do that too. </end shameless plug for new scoreboards >

  14. Revamping my level set pages

    As of today, automatic score reporting is now finally available at my site for MikeL2 in MS mode, MikeL2-fix in Lynx, and MikeL3 and MikeL4 in both modes. The existing scores are still in place for the MikeL2 MS board. Anyone who has already made an account at my site and has previously reported MikeL2 scores, I have linked your login to your existing scores. If anyone else that has reported scores for MikeL2 and would like to create an account, let me know so I can make sure your old scores get linked to your new account. I have linked the "duplicate" levels across sets, so that if you report a score on a MikeL2 level that also happens to be in MikeL3, your score will count on the MikeL3 board as well. Even if the time limits differ, as long as the levels are otherwise virtually identical, the time will still count and be adjusted accordingly. If you run into any issues with anything, let me know. http://www.pillowpc2001.net/mylevels OK now I need to get back to CCLP4
