I just played through...

Recommended Posts

What have you been playing casaully? Also, do you have a set to recommend for me to play next?

 

I'll start. This week I finished playing through JBLP1, after recently completing Ida4, BHLS2, and geodave3. All of these I can recommend for enjoyable playing. I should write some reviews if I have the time, but it's so much easier just to play than comment :-)

 

I also have a some levels left in JoshL1-lynx.dat (if I remember the name right), and have started playing MO1.dat, mybest37, Lessinath_CCLP1_levels_2, JoshL2, MikeL2, and TS0. But which of these should I concentrate on first before moving on to the others, or should I still dig up some old level set that I haven't really tried? If you've played any of these yourself, it would be great to hear how you would classify or describe the set as a whole.

 

Am very interested in hearing any comments on any levels and sets you've played recently. It seems there are so many to choose from, that even some good ones slip through because there simply isn't enough time to play through everything. On the plus side, this means the next CCLP should have some new unfamiliar levels to play!

I'll be releasing a best of TomP2 and TomP3 MS/Lynx compatible compilation set named TomP2Remix soon. I have TomP4Demo too. I wouldn't mind you trying them. M11k4. :)

When I have the time, I will. I have played through TomP1fixed and TomP2, but never got around to 3. But you might have known this since I've posted my scores at pieguy's site. (Am still waiting for someone to try and beat a few of them!) I never got around to the third one because at the time I was playing through everything totally blind and the invalid tile combinations were getting a bit old by the end of 2 to say the least :-) Only after watching Rock's Let's play of 1 did I really notice how annoyed I could've been if I hadn't been enjoying myself so much. But I'll try the new one once you release it to see what the levels feel like now.

TomP1Special will get rid of rockdet's issues. TomP2Remix will fix the invalid tile problems of my favourite TomP2 levels, so you won't have to worry about that. Honestly, I don't know what I was thinking back then, :P

MikeL2 is a really fun set to play with a lot of variety. :) It's long but so worth the journey. And even more fun to optimize - we need more names on that scoreboard!

 

I've been going through TS0 slowly - will comment more upon completion of more levels.

 

And I'm hoping to play MO1 soon.

Thanks John! Although I should mention that MikeL2 has quite a few instances of guesswork that are frowned upon as of recently, so you might want to have an editor handy while playing... :P Also watch out for the awkward placement of #50 and 63, which replaced older levels and were made much later than the rest of the pre-#149 levels, and therefore would have fit better much later in the set - although if I had done that, MikeL2 wouldn't be at a nice even 200 levels. :D

 

So you're welcome to continue with MikeL2, Miika, but if that's scared you off :D, you could always try MikeL3, which mixes some new levels with some of my older levels that have been modified to be more fair. Plus it's much shorter of a set at only 35 levels... (Y)

35 levels? Sounds like it's high time for a "Jumble" at this point in the set...;)

I heard about a recommendation for CharlesH1 on another thread here; I enjoyed that set. A lot of the levels are very simple, but they're also a lot of fun. The "remixes" and variation levels are pretty cool.

There's a fun 149-level set with small levels called Chipper.dat (I believe) on pieguy's site. :) It was the center of many score reports for quite a while on the NG at one point.

The major levelsets that I've been playing in the last few months (all in Lynx mode) are:-

 

ArchieP1

JoshL3

CCLP2

bigoto7

ajmiam-pit-of-100-tiles

 

For each levelset, in the order listed above, I was playing one for several days or weeks until the next one came along and took my attention with it. I downloaded JBLP1 today, so I guess that will occupy me for a while now...

 

Other than the "big" ones above, I always try to take a look at new puzzles in TS0, Bowman1 and tensorpudding, and randomly check out updates to geodave3 and Ida4.

 

Much as I'd like to spend some time to give feedback on individual levels, I simply don't seem to have that kind of time available anymore. So I'll just say that ArchieP1 and ajmiam* are highly recommended, and I expect to see a lot of levels from them in CCLP1.

Have fun with JBLP1, Madhav - I don't think it will take a long time to solve, so you should be able to get back to anything unfinished that you've got left. :)

I was kind of considering the set complete - I wanted the last level to be the first (and only) of the set to have the exit buried under a block, just like CC1 - but hmmm, maybe a Jumble summing up all the levels would be a better ending to the set? :D

No, make it like SPECIAL, Mike! :D

I just beat my Final Destination record - I got to the teleporter! XD

 

The thing that I always die on while recording besides the force floor next to the water is that damn block before the ice rink area. It's like a 10% chance of surviving there for me. :O

Have you tried the new version 2 on CC Zone? It's much easier. :P

I'll only feel accomplished if I beat the original.. :)

 

+ the first MIDI you used in your solution helps a lot cause that song/file is like, awesome. XD

I've been avoiding getting back to working on my CCLP1 submissions and some other stuff too, so here's an update of what I've been playing:

 

I played through Lessinath_CCLP1_levels_2, Lessinath_CCLP1_levels, most of JoshL2, and then also tensorpudding-cclp1.dat, KWests.dat and grant2012.ccl. Last week I got through most of TS0 but was sidetracked by playing through last year's create competition levels, and the first 100 levels of Not_CCLP1.

 

Still need to get further than the first level on MO1.dat, mybest37, MikeL2, and plan to start ArchieP1, ajmiam-pit-of-100-tiles, and maybe Rock-Beta (once it is not marked as "still under construction"). Someone also mentioned that they hadn't really received feedback for their first set, so I would like to play that but I don't remember whose set it was!

 

How about the rest of you?

The few moments I did get to spend playing CC recently have been playing JBLP1 (without the editor*, which is how I'll probably play most Lynx-compatible sets from now on... (Y)). Up to level 52 so far - great set, John!

 

* = until after I solve the level - then I might take a look... I also might have inadvertently seen a few levels before playing them, but not enough to ruin anything... :D

Was a bit sick this week so had time to play through ArchieP1 (had played about 50 levels before). It was very nice! Where is Archie now? I'd like to give some feedback (two levels unsolvable in lynx etc.), but is my only option to email his yahoo account?

 

Since my last update in this thread I also played through ajmiam-pit-of-100-tiles, which was fantastic. Of course my playing has been sidetracked with many other things, but now I plan to concentrate on levels that will be included in the CCLP1 voting, but then will later try to get to some of the older sets I've missed out on.

 

As a reference for myself, the sets so far recommended that I haven't played through are:

 

MikeL2

CharlesH1

Chipper

JoshL3

bigoto7

 

What have you guys been playing over the summer?
