So I've just recently created a Kid Chameleon discord, and if you don't know what that is, it's basically the preferred program the speedrunning community uses to discuss strats and stuff. There's also a highscoring section if anyone's still involved in that XD I know you were involved in both highscoring and speedrunning for a bit, but not much as of late. So if you still happen to be interested, I encourage you to join with this invite:
Hi. I'm trying to use K-E to create a new set of levels. For the first level I changed the size/background from Under Skull Mountain III (this is a 8*3 screen woods level) and now the background is messed up. Could you please help me fix it?
Hey Skarloey, just to say, while back I had wee rant bout high scores, I should have mentioned your name in there, was unfair to say only me and wins interested in high scores as you were ahead of me at one point and considering you were the one pushing me into a high score, so sorry bout that, no offence meant.
As regard to wildside I go as far to the download bit, hit an download AD instead of yours (very annoying ADS only a numpty like me who download the wrong one) I realised my mistake and went to download your mod, then I got so far and the site asking me if it ok to look at my details and that, is that safe???
That was weeks back ive been a hell of lot busy lately only returning to the wiki for a bit today. So ive not had a chance to play much although I had a wee shot today, I still want to download Wildside, I just want to know if the site is safe when asking me to view some of my stuff.
Hi there. Nah, there's no big deal about that man. I'm glad to help both Wins and you on some high score tips :P If I wasn't busy on school, maybe I could have attempt to do another high score video, finally reaching 1,800,000. And even work faster on my project Return to Wildside -.-
About the download, I never got any problem with downloads on that site, which must be 4shared, but in order to download there, you must have an account on there.
But like I said, that site doesn't seem to be troublesome at all, most of us upload our projects there and nobody claim there was some personal info issue, so maybe you should give it a try ;)
Ok thanks. I was hoping to be able to push for more score and be ready for wins, I was very unlikely to beat his new score because he has mentioned some crazy times and scores, but I have not had any time to practice, I was lucky first time around I found some time, not so much now though . . .
But maybe Wins Speedcom shit has come at the right time for me, I like my spare time to mean something, as I have little. so if I go play Skido it got to be for something and heres where you come in. I gave it a bash earlier and finished in about 25mins I was very fkn lucky, I knew I would be as I didn't record it. surprised myself. In your 1st high score run you finished 31 32? mins yes and you were not trying for speed!
Are you interested as we both have so little time to maybe have a wee unofficial friendly competition? like we did high score?
Id be able to fit in maybe 2 - 3 speed runs a week, it be a lot quicker and less stressy doing speed run because you don't have to worry bout getting hit, I actually enjoyed that part. plus if we both able to hit under 30 mins (am sure you can as your high score run was just above) , no stress, no pressure.
And say at end of next month we could put our times up online? (iv said id try to put a time up in a couple weeks but if your interested il not post up anything till end of next month)
firstname.lastname@example.org if your interested you could email me your best time, doesn't have to be exact, just like i got 27mins or smthing and any tips you find, ill reply with mine, and blah blah blah till next month.
Its okay if you don't have the time for anythat, it just make it a bit more interesting that's all. And the best part it only take under half a hour shot.
Oh like your suggestion kitchen. Okay so, I believe it is more acceptable have this just for fun, you're right, no-hit bonus makes this extremely difficult and is very annoying.
You can also email me your best time at email@example.com, I'm gonna do the same when get a better time ;)
I also did friendly competitions on Hangouts online with some fellas here. If you're also interested on doing that, we can just arrange another date and time that suits best for both.
Skarloey, just to let you know, I uninstalled chrome (megabytes usage was far too high, almost at half way point of month allowance already due to chat and video and whatnot, it also if you check the task manager, its eating mbs all the time) and again its not my pc. so no hangout for me, but I catch you here or email. Really enjoying solving your puzzles on Return to Wildside. Im past first boss, and few levels after. Good luck finding new ideas for stage4.
Good job, thanks for the commentary, I apologize, however, in case you struggle so much on harder levels like Incahuasi or Infernal Realm, I know is too much pain for beginning Stage 1. The idea was making the mod tougher than the original, you know, just to make it look more challenging for advanced players or at least those who're very used with gameplay, perhaps on some levels I did not pulled off that very good. Oh well :_
Yeah, puzzles are very enjoyable, but trust me, on the other hand is one of the hardest tasks to do for me, even though puzzles are the reason why a bunch of levels look awesome and sometimes unique.
Hope I find some ideas on my head to continue (since i'm too far at this point) and finally take a loooooong break. Though I'm out of ideas right now, I got some cool stuff already reserved for the final update ;)
I was busy the last week looking for some info about Speed Bonus, hopefully this time I found what happens when you collect more than two clocks on certain levels, it's a little bit complicated the explanation, but it is understandable.
There's no problem about the 0-120 Speed Bonuses. I just updated what happens starting from 121 seconds.
Final score was "1,813,981" if I remember correctly, the only that exceeds Wins' High Score. But I noticed recently you broke a new record with a huge score, which it's really cool, so congrats to you!
Thanks Skarloey, cant I edit it? it seems I cant or im just dumb!
Also yeah I beat the score but it wont last, without the two new methods I would never have beat it, I struggle to get close to wins insane times. Im sure Wins can already beat this score, its just a matter of time before he puts video up.
I meant to open a new email account just for the wiki, iv not done it yet, but when I do ill post to you, I meant to say that ages ago.
When the battle for top ends (wins is going to put an unbeatable score up I think) Il have a bash at it but im not good enough time wize. Ill download Return to Wildside. Ill prob need help getting it running though . . .
I can now record gameplay, I hope to put up a short video within next week.
Oh sorry, yes I forgot to configure the settings for viewers, now you can :P
Well, be happy, at least you got the chance to be at 1st place, if you managed to get those higher records, it means you sure got some badass skills at gameplay, it will be cool see what u got on videos ;)
What great news you decided give a try on my project, but Return to Wildside isn't the best option If you want to do a High Score run because:
a. It isn't complete yet.
b. By the time I started making Return to Wildside, I wasn't thinking too much about Level structure allowing players to get all the bonuses at flag levels and so on, and so on. Like the original game.
It's more about tough challenges, hard jumps basically it's like a Kid Chameleon Hard Mode.
Perhaps the next time I'll take care about that when working about Level structure... ;)
Thank you Skarloey, although i had change it slightly as you has score for no prize and score for 2 clocks on same level, i apologise if i have messed it up! pretty sure i havent though, ha.
I got to check what my ultimate score would be so thanks, i changed the times again so they arent my times, just random.
Regarding return to Wildside, ill download it in about a months time, if i do it now then ill have too much to do! I want to know what the final scores will be first and get up a video, im half way through a very short video.
Return to wildside, im not bothered bout scores, im normally not anyway, just kid chameleon high scoring kind of took me by suprise. Im sure with all the time and effort you put in itl be a good game to play.
Thanks again, i got bit carried away with kid chameleon but im back to the real world now! ha.
Kg ill let u know when i put video up, you can give me some pointers as am sure itl be bit crap for first time.
I managed finish short video if you interested in seeing some my gameplay,
Search Kid Chameleon Wind Castles, (made by skid chameleon) wind castles 1 speed run under 5secs, and wind castles 2, double clock route, not my best as im still getting used to another set of pc controls but am glad video worked! Little gamplay of stage 1 first, and made a mistake on video wind castles 1, it didnt work on full screen, so it is what it is. Let me know what you think! im ok with it being bit shitey, its my first vid.
