A month ago, you all received a link to download my work-in-progress
video game, Aniktophlox. Some of you may have played it. Some of you
may have enjoyed it. Some of you may've been frustrated or angered by
it. And come to think of it, some of you may've been bored by it.
Well, I want to "check in," as they say. I want you to want to play
Aniktophlox, and I'm here to receive your negative criticisms and your
frustrated questions, as well as your grossly exaggerated praise. My
friend Lewis came over to play the game last night, and he told me
that the Wall Razing mini-game was too difficult to overcome. Maybe
you'd agree. We also encountered some peculiar bugs with rock-throwing
and fearful co-workers. These issues don't crash the game, but they
may crash your enjoyment of it. Anyhow, please write to let me know if
you've played the game. I'd appreciate anything you have to say about
Lewis did find an area of the game that DOES crash. Once you reach the
way, like, cool video arcade within the game, you will crash
Aniktophlox if you try to play the "Race Ace" arcade machine. This
happens because your Aniktophlox download didn't include certain
picture files that the "Race Ace" game needs to run. (This mishap was,
of course, not my fault, but I won't explain whose fault it was.)
Luckily, we can fix this problem by adding some game files. Take these
1. Follow this Rapidshare link:
2. Click "to Download."
3. Double-click "Aniktophlox Files."
4. Double-click "Picture.zip" and save it where you can find it.
(You can still download the game files here, too, if necessary.)
5. Unzip the contents of the Picture.zip file into the "Picture"
folder of the Aniktophlox game files. You will see in this folder a
bunch of PNG files, including "race_ace_1," "race_ace_2," etc. Well,
that series of pictures should go up to nine, and the folder needs a
couple other pictures, as well. DON'T put another "Picture" folder
(containing the new files) within the existing "Picture" folder; DO
unzip the new files themselves into the existing folder.
This fixes the only known game crash.
THANK YOU & SAVE OFTEN!
