Title: Catacombs HD
Post by josephine on 18.01.2013 at 21:29:17
OK, this has been asked repeatedly in the past, but not lately so here goes: Now that we have HD is anyone interested in picking Catacombs up again? I have a small mansion that could be modified to fit (dual booting so I can still use the builder.) Not to jump ahead of anyone (Olle and aquaMat were next in line, if they're still interested) but it seems like people still want to play the "oldies." What do you think guys?

I'd be all for it, but I'm not sure of the logistics of getting it done. Freddy used to send an original Catacombs file for builders to add on to, then I think he took care of uploading the finished file.

I hope somebody chimes in here that knows a lot more about how to get it done for HD.

Yeah I read the Hd converting instructions, it sounds fairly easy since Catacombs doesn't have any custom graphics. But if the original file isn't available maybe I'll just give my small mansion an ending and call it done.

The rules Freddy introduced for Catacombs were 10 rooms with $15000.  I guess he has the original file.  One must have the original file and the mansion builder, which only works in 10.6.8 or older versions of Mac OS X.  Then after adding the rooms the file must be duplicated for backup and at last converted to the HD version.

Thanks brell :)  Freddy signed in a couple months ago, will PM him to see if he's available and interested.

A little off the exact topic, not for HD, but there IS a start to Catacombs for MM2, that Freddy made the first section of, and I have made a second section with some tweaking and input from Freddy....way back when we were all excited about the contest and all the folks were building and creating with the new effects and creatures and goblins and Such !!! ::)

Freddy called it the "Hanging Gardens of Babylon" and maybe someone could check in with him also on this potential jump off point for a new catacombs for MM2 ???  :D

Just a thought...

thanks !

SandyBean you've been holding out on us!  [smiley=shocked.gif]  ;)

Seriously though, I'd be into doing that too. If Freddy can't or doesn't want to continue the series he started maybe we could use your MM2 mansion as the first section? Let's see if we hear from him.

I'd love that, too. We seriously need some new mansions to play.

I have the first part of HGoB and it is very promising. Haven't seen Sandybeen's input.

But we' need 10.6.8 or earlier to keep on building.

Hi Brell et al,

I can try and send you the HGoB, part 1 (Freddy) and part 2 (me), but honestly have totally forgotten how to do this?  Zip file, email, all those things Freddy used to help me with as I am pretty computer 'illiterate' ~  :-?

If you could email, PM or let me know the steps to sending it, I'll gladly pass it along  :)  but please also would need a beta tester for my section (part 2) as I was just learning the new tricks, sprites, platforms and options on the new MM2 builder when I made it.

Thanks,

SandyBean  [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

As I said I already have part one. 

Just compress the file (under File - Compress) and send it as an attachment to those that would like to beta-test.

I have not had any questions in a long time (haven't played much lately either), but I just started in on Catacombs HD and have been doing okay until I got to room 16308 and find no way to go any further! :-/

HELP!

TIA.  suzanne

Hi suztours! Good to hear from you.

Can you please post a screen shot?

Post by suztours on 28.06.2013 at 07:25:56
Okay - here it is. I've already found the secret spots... Just don't know where to go next!

SPOILER ALERT!



When you found the secret spot, did you go a little to the right and climb down further? There's a whole section underneath.

Got it - THANKS! :D

Semi-Native... well, I got through THAT crisis okay, but now, I've got another one! Somehow missed the necessary RED key to get to the next section. I'm stuck in room 16115... see attached screen shot.

Sorry for any spoiler alerts for others.  :-?

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!



It's in 17321, after you slide down all the poles and get to the bottom. Look up to the top of the room.

By the way, that's my section, and it's the last one of the mansion.

Oh - I thought those slides were in the next section and accessible from above or another area!  I'll go back... THANKS.
