Mac OS X Universal Binaries
This is the first release which can run natively on intel Macs. It will work on any PPC or intel Mac with OS X 10.3.9, or later. It *might* also run on earlier versions of OS X -- but I haven't had the chance to try it out. Please let me know if you have any trouble, Mac people! (joseph at lexaloffle dot com)
Change the keys in the option->keys menu. The default keys for jump and throw are now Z and X to avoid triggering the pull-down menu in windows. But if you don't like that, now you can change it (:
Save Anywhere Cheat
By popular demand, you can now save the game anywhere in the registered version. I've added this as a cheat -- hold down shift-S to bring up the save menu, and it doesn't cost any treasure.
- More music
- Extended instructions screens
- Access to the highscore table once you've finished the game
- Extended ending sequence (Orlando is now much happier to be saved!)
There isn't an email list for minor updates, but major updates I either automatically send out emails to registered users, or announce in a newsletter. I put off announcing 2.1 because 2.11 is coming very shortly and is the version I want everyone to get. It has difficulty levels, which will hopefully put an end to widespread player suffering (*^ _ ^*)
Yeah.. the PPC emulation works so smoothly that I was tempted just to keep releasing PPC-only builds. The only real problem is that they chew through laptop batteries a bit more. And also Apple won't like me if I don't get with the times.
I just played this for a while more, I'm up to level six now! I have to admit, I didn't notice any speed differences, but I have a 2.8ghz imac with 4GB, so it ought to cope alright :D
For a moment I thought you had somehow added music to the levels, as I encountered the first level with music, but then I realised it was just occassional places that have music. The lack of music is unfrotunately my biggest complaint with Jasper, but I can see what you're going for.
Oh yeah, and this game plays much much better with a joypad. I suspect that represents a lot of people's difficulty struggles.
