The winner is either the first one to actually make sense of that mess, or the last one to lose the will to live

In my case It'll be the latter.

I need someone to check this: go to the point on level 4 indicated on the attached screenshot. Make sure that (a) you're not using the WHDLoad invulnerability trainer and (b) you're not in the game's own "flashing invulnerable" mode when you hit that spot. If I'm right, the Speed Of Light subgame should start.

It looks like the game isn't bugged after all, apart from not being able to enter the subgame while "flashing invulnerable" (or using the invulnerability trainer) It might be that the subgame has just remained very, very well hidden until now!

It's like I always say: "Life would be so much simpler if I had the source code"

My RAD drive and WinUAE is itching to record this.
I just want to be certain about all the bonus levels.
No there are 6.

You're missing one on level 2-2

It explains in more detail here.

http://www.avians.net/~hawthorn/apidya/bonus.html

It's essentially the same as the mole hill one.

TO GIRV...

Really? I did try that exact position before but I used a different adf with invulnerability on...

Come to think of it I did have to turn off the invulnerability to access the subgame in level 2-2, maybe you'd like to check the code at that point to see if it's similar?

It's very possible the ADF you used and my WHDLoad trainer patch the same piece of code in the same way to do the invulnerability. The same routine in each level does all the player vs. xxx collision detection, including vs. regular scenery and including checking for subgame "module" entry points. Easiest way to get invulnerability would be to make this routine return without doing anything, with the side effect of disabling entry to scenery-triggered subgames such as 2-2 and 4-2. The other subgames could be boss-triggered, and bosses have their own separate collision detection code.

I'd also hazard a guess that you can't enter the 2-2 subgame if you are "flashing invulnerable". I need to research a patch for this bug and for a proper invulnerability trainer that still allows entry to the 2-2 and 4-2 subgames.

So you need to get back to level 4 and try again without invulnerability on

I'll give it a go later mate

I'll use the adf again because you can turn it off on the fly.

I normally hate adfs by the way, WHD for the win!

Sorry girv, I did have a quick go last night but the level skip cheat on the adf is crap.

if you skip a level it only lets you play stage 1 of each world then thinks you completed that world.

So I skipped to level 4-1, completed it, then it took me to world 5! STOOPID!

Hipoonius needs to add it at RAG first.
Should be up in an hour or so.
