  1. How many CC Steam players are there?

    I suspect the majority of that is the nostalgia for the Windows version combined with a general unawareness that Tile World exists- it's not hard to find if you look, but for most people trying to play Chip's Challenge again after decades, they'd probably be satisfied with the Steam version. Especially given that the Windows version doesn't work on modern systems. It's just easier to grab the Steam version for cheap than try troubleshooting an exe from the early 90s or try to find an alternative.

  4. is level creation a form of art?

    Yes. There's absolutely no way that it's not an art or form of expression- otherwise, everyone doing it would be making very very similar things. And even within common design tropes and variety levels, there's still a huge variance between designers. No. If I'm feeling bleh I'm not trying to make levels. I'm doing something that's either relatively mindless, or takes all my focus to attempt to complete. Not usually but every once in a while something I've recently done or said or heard just makes me pause and say "wow, that would be a great level title". Obviously there are stories involved with some levels- both in the creation process and in the game-sense that there's a *story* for Chip to be progressing through. Some entire sets have been made around that idea.
  5. Any way to make monsters skate?

    Wires can't be placed on ice, and so would require replacing more ice. Likewise, gliders can reverse on ice but not turn as was originally asked.
  6. Any way to make monsters skate?

    Unfortunately, gliders can't pick up boots so what you want to do is impossible. A couple possible alternatives: Rover on ice. They can pick up boots, but the behavior won't match that of a glider and potentially be inconsistent on collecting the boots. Ghost on ice. They ignore ice, though, so they would be moving slower than the sliding Chip without speed boots. Chip or Melinda mimic instead of a glider. Force floor with area button to reverse it as part of the loop.
  7. Hellllllo everyone, it's time for another Create Competition! Like the last one I ran where I wanted a maze, this time your prompt is also just a type of level. I want a block themed level! There are a lot of interesting things you can do with blocks and many tiles also complement blocks well, so hopefully we get some interesting puzzles out of this. Guidelines: 1. The level should be new, at the very least I shouldn't have seen it before. 2. Other sections are okay, but the focus should be on blocks. 3. The level can be large, or long, but I value compact clever puzzles highly over an overly drawn out level. If it has a reason to fill the whole map or take up many minutes, that's fine, but don't feel compelled to fill up the entire map. 4. I'd like to see a sokoban (push blocks to destination tiles) in each entry that uses a mechanic that makes the puzzle only* work in CC. As a guideline, if you could make the puzzle in YASC, it probably won't do well here. This isn't a requirement, but it'd have to be a very good level to win without one of these. 5. The level can be made in CC1 or CC2, and if CC1, it must be solvable in MS and/or Lynx. I'm aware that CC2 has multiple different kinds of blocks and many other interacting tiles that allows for a lot more potential here, but levels in both games will have a good chance. Recall that the winning maze level was CC2 but almost 100% transferable to Lynx, and second place was MS+Lynx. 6. The deadline is May 3rd, 11:59 PM or whenever I post the submitted levels, whichever is later. I'll give feedback on any obvious busts or flaws I see when submitted, but otherwise won't be giving thoughts until judging. 7. Submit your levels (limit 3) to either my Discord (IHNN#3459) or email ( jbardonjr [at] charter [dot] net). For an example of the sort of level that would do well here, Construct-a-Sokoban uses chips and sockets to make a novel sardine can, while Same Game uses CC elements sparingly to craft a masterful puzzle. Josh's Trick or Trap uses recessed walls to up the difficulty of an otherwise simple puzzle, and his Prison Hall uses force floors to create an elegant puzzle. Block Plaza (in WoCCLP4) uses blue walls to make a guiding puzzle, to use one of my own levels. For a level that wouldn't do so well, pick anything in SokobanCCLP for not using CC mechanics, or Traps II from CCLP2, or pretty much any of Tyler's adapted sokobans (MSI excepted for using toggle walls), and so on. And most importantly, have fun with it!

    Except that's actually 926. A better 927 is my score on the busted version of Repair the Automatic (Caution) Doors, with 928 being the bold time on the same level
  9. My official level pack!

    Yes, that's because the downloads section is only accessible to members- so anyone logged out wouldn't have permissions to get there. Further, you kept linking to embeds instead of the download page itself. To protect against malicious uploads, only the uploader has permission to download an embed like that. The download page that I linked can be used by anyone, and is what you should link.

  11. April 2018 Create Competition - Pushing New Ideas

    Thanks again for everyone who entered this competition, the average level of quality here was incredibly high and ranking these came down to the slimmest of margins. Literally any of the levels in the top half could easily have been the winner, and very minor changes to levels could also have resulted in several place changes. Onwards to the results! 12th place: 11th place: 10th place: 9th place: 8th place: 7th place: 6th place: 5th place: 4th place: 3rd place: 2nd place: 1st place: Thanks again to everyone who entered, I know I'm looking forward to seeing what's on offer for Tyler's Create!

  13. April 2018 Create Competition - Pushing New Ideas

    Submissions are now officially closed, with the release of the submitted levels. Fixes are still allowed until I post results. As for the judging... I'll be starting a stream within about 10 minutes here showing my first impressions of the levels. I will be trying to solve all of them, but I make no promises about actually doing so on-stream (though I will before posting results).

  16. April 2018 Create Competition - Pushing New Ideas

    And submissions are now unofficially closed! I've received levels from twelve different participants, so I'd consider this competition a huge success! Now, I know I said I'd stream playing the levels today over on the Discord, but tomorrow evening just works better. So I'll be posting the submitted levels (11+2 CC1, 13 CC2) right before I start the playthrough stream, and you can still get in a last minute level or change before then

  22. IHNN's levels feedback/discussion (New inside: Walls of CCLP4!)

    Blockslide knowledge tidbits: 1 ice tile: Death unless slide delay is involved. 2 ice tiles: Can step onto the block tile and step off safely. 3 ice tiles: Same as 2 ice tiles, but a half wait allows following the block and sidestepping. In Lynx, that just works. 4 ice tiles: Can follow the block, sidestep, and intercept the block as it returns. 5 ice tiles: Same as 4. 6+ ice tiles: Can loop around and push another block into the place the first block originally was.

  24. IHNN's levels feedback/discussion (New inside: Walls of CCLP4!)

    Hmmm, I haven't posted an update here in quite a while. Well, what better update than 149 new levels in the Walls of CCLP4!
  25. Walls of CCLP4

    Walls of CCLP4 View File Levels using the walls from: Block Parking, Lockdown, Mindless Self-Indulgence and Japanese Game Show were all created after after someone else (hi Josh) had posted a level using those walls. Any similar bits of design between levels using any levels not mentioned above entirely coincidental, and similarities with those levels are too- I was specifically trying to do something different. This is why I elected not to announce the project officially and instead just tease it- I didn't want to be influenced too much by seeing other people use those walls, as it's already difficult enough trying to make the new level feel distinct from the old, outside of certain throwbacks. Likewise, I didn't want to discourage others from playing in the same playground because "it'd already been done"! Having a decent amount of levels to point to using the same walls as a starting point but a completely different end result shows that even if one person has made a walls of level, there's still more that can be done. After all, just look at Cold Hard Chip and A Pressing Concern. And even with similarities in structure between Water is My Friend and Dilapidated Factory, the levels themselves are totally different. And those used the walls from Fire is My Enemy, which used the walls from Jumble I from CCLP3!!! Anyway, this project started back on August 6th, 2017, with Pixelated Fire. I was looking for a starting point for a level because I wanted to make one, and the inside/outside section caught my eye with an immediate idea to fill the outside with force floors. The level grew from there, but while I was building it, I had a nagging thought in the back of my mind. Joshua Bone has been doing Walls of CC1 for a while. Josh Lee started but aborted the same with CCLP1. Why shouldn't I try with CCLP4? So I looked through the set for some levels that would prove challenging to remake, and built Enemy Within, Enemy Without, Hallucinogenic Substance, and Orienteering early on, using Air Bubble, Suburban Legend, Shrub, and Keyboard Malfunction as bases. Once I had overcome a few of what I thought would be the biggest challenges, I had so many ideas for levels stemming from these! Back in September, I had the idea for a level that duplicated the top and bottom halves, but they would play out completely differently, and then spent 9 hours converting Monster Swapper into Another Perspective. In October, I built a Xenocide inspired level within Ruinous Plaza. November, a blob level in Sewerway. And so on, with some levels taking advantage of aesthetic choices in the original levels such as in Nectar Meadow and Antidisruptive Caves. I dared to step out of my comfort zone with some things and build in pointless rooms and areas, more aesthetic red herrings, and more complex ideas... sometimes. I was inspired by the strangest small comments sometimes as well, mostly while watching Josh's JoshL2 LP (Yet Another Joyride, Block Plaza) but from all sorts of random things, oftentimes giving an idea for a set of walls that I thought had promise but wasn't sure how to properly repurpose. I've poured so much into this project over the past 8 months (including test time: the last level. The Price of Freedom was made on March 17th) and feel like I've learned a lot from it, too. And so I hope you enjoy my take on the Walls of CCLP4. I enjoyed making these levels quite a bit, as my totally-for-real-this-time last MS and Lynx compatible CC1 set. I expect to still pull out CC1 for MS or Lynx only shenanigans, as there's still some interesting space to be explored with both, but I think it's finally about time to move onto CC2. As for the uploaded files, "1.0" is the CCLP4 ordered version of the set that has been uploaded to pieguy's site. There is no difficulty curve or content balancing here, and all untimed levels have been changed to have a time limit of 1000 seconds, to allow score reporting there. This version will also not be updated just so I don't have to update multiple sets- and it's interesting to be able to see a level before and after a fix is applied (I hope no fixes are necessary). The version with underscores is the one I have in my data folder and will receive updates as necessary, and is sorted roughly by difficulty order. This is the recommended one to play!
