Hello everyone !
First of all I want to thank you for such a great game - I fell in love with
it in less than 2 days !! Keep on the good work !
As I like the game that much, after a week I wanted to try to create some
levels of my own, got in touch with the lua-Scripting-Level-Interface and
While I was playing around with some level-designes I thought of some items I
was missing - first of all a Dynamit-Stone - like the blackbomb stone.
I also thought of other item-suplliers and so grabbed the code and read
through it - to my surprise I found the dynamite- (and a white-bomb-)stone in
the sources completely ready, but commented out - why this ?
I looked through the code further and found everything implemented for them
including the graphics - so I enabled them in source and they worked fine.
As previously said, you have really done a VERY GOOD job, designing the game
(especially the code itsself) and so I tried to add some more "Bombstones" as
item-suppliers. (I like the idea that you can have as many items from some
kinds as you like, but you have to manage the right counts to solve the
puzzles that await you at the next screen.)
I created the following bomb-stones (including Artworkt for them) :
"bombstone" "provided item"
After this and some playing around with the items I also thought of a way to
add/remove items directly from the player's inventory - and it would also be
nice to be able to check if the inventory is empty. (Found also a level where
the autor wrote in the comment that he wantet this to be checked and didn't
So I read through the lua-bindings of enigma and implemented (til now) 3 new
Functions for the lua-level-interface:
I haven't implemented the remove-function yet, but are planning to do so soon.
I've done the changes against Version 1.00 and took a fast overlook of 1.01
from svn before I wrote this mail and did not find any changes so far at the
points where I changed the code.
So I can provide you with the code(-changes) and the artwork if you want, the
artwork would be free to use. So please let me know if you are interested in
A couple of weeks ago I had an idea of a new item again. - An "Air-Fan". (This
item - or stone would add constant velocity to the floor-tiles in a row in
it's pointing direction, until the "air-stream" ist blocked by a stone or
item in its way. The velocity would decrease with the distance to the fan.)
I thought of implementing it as a second "Laser-beam" class since it has to
check everytime a stone is moved if it's air-flow is blocked now or got
freed. I haven't done any work in this direction - I wanted to ask you for
advice before I start - so what do you thing about it ?
Phew - ok I'm sorry for writing such a long mail to the list, but I wanted to
detail how I came to all this and didn't want to sound arogant about my work.
(What is much more likely that would have happened when I just had offered my
You have really written a great game and it's as much pleasure for me to play
it as to write code for it ! So, keep up the good work !
