Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Who stole christmas - StMatn - Jam Entry
We proudly present "Who stole christmas?"
In this game you play a minion who has the task to steal christmas presents for his master.
We wish you much fun, and a tr...merry christmas ;)
Mapeditor-manual is finally out! You can find it in my journal.
(If you want to see the ending, but the game is too hard/frustrating, let me tell you, that there is a cheat. To avoid spoilers here, a hint is included in my journal-entry, which I've posted right after the deadline. It has to be entered on the world-map-screen)
If the game doesn't start, please make sure, that:
-you have the proper working java runtime environment installed
-you have unpacked the archive (Windows lets you browse the archive, but the game isnt able to access the resources, when launched inside the zip)
OK...i've said it many times, but this time the builds should REALLY work on different systems. I tested the Java6-Version under a Java6-JRE and it didnt start a exception-storm in the console, so I believe it should work. Versions aren't operating system specific. If you run Java7 on your mac you can unse the Windows-Download and if you're using Java6 on Windows, the Mac-Download will work for you.
To check your version go to the console/terminal/cmd and type in "java -version" (and hit enter, of course;) ) it should print something like >>java version "1.x...<< where x is your version.
-Problem loading level-icon on Linux ->fixed (Linux is very pedantig about filenames)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
