View Full Version : Score Challenge level... Thrilling, right?

(I'll be updating this main post quite a bit probably as time goes on)
(People probably take one look at this post and say 'AH CRAP LOADS OF TEXT GET ME OUTTA HERE!' hah)

Blah blah lost profile glitch... But I decided I'd try again.

Now I know I'm not some big known hot shot creator or somethin' but I'm gonna try my best. And the type of level I'm making could probably use some play testing...

What I'm making is a score based platformer. The platforming in the level is not that hard. Getting on the score bubbles.. Also not that hard. Where the difficultly hopefully shines is getting all the score bubbles. In one chain. I'm trying to make it difficult without being too frustrating. But to do this I need people to help play test.

Any one willing?


Edit:
Kay I'm publishing the very beginning of it now. It's short, but if you wanna do it right it might take at least a couple tries. Lord knows it took me long enough to get it right and I'm the one making it.

I need to know if it's too frustrating right now or not. You need to play it more than once before answering you're going to have to play at least a couple times to probably learn the strategies (AKA the right times to jump and the right places to land and what not). So please don't just be like TOO HARD MAKE EASY or something. hahaha.

Anyways feature as of right now:
25 point bubbles attainable in a single chain that will result in a times 6 multiplier in the end to give you a score of 1500 if everything goes correctly.

That's pretty much it. If you're having trouble with a certian area I can help explain how to do that section but really trying it a couple times should hopefully help you on your own.

Level name: Score challenge demo
and if you didn't notice my PSN name is also LukeCF.

I felt the need to add that this is supposed to be as tough as nails... So yeah... Let me know what you think? Please and thank you.

info dump:

When I play ... I seem to most commonly lose my score chain when I'm jumping to the moving circle that swings me up, and (in the section with the five poles standing up) when I jump from the pole furthest away to the one second furthest away. So I may tweak these slightly to be more player friendly. Still waiting to see what someone else thinks before I do that though. Probably. I might just go ahead and do it, I'm not sure.

I posed a slightly updated version (V 0.1). There are some stickers for a little decoration and I added some game play cameras (though those may be taken out depending on how people feel about them) and another short little section added with a few more bubbles.

V 0.1 includes: thirty score bubbles which when successfully obtained in a single chain will get you a X7 multiplier which should net you a total of 2100 if I did everything right...

Have not yet tweaked the places I was having trouble with.

Now time to trim up the main post up there ^^

I got a green screen of death...

Green screen?? I've always gotten a red screen.

And I'd be happy to beta test your level. I'm in the middle of making my Bubbly series. I already have two of them released, on of which (http://bit.ly/cDV80j) was spotlighted.

Anyways, I'll be happy to beta test your level, in hope that it isn't too much like mine.

Thanks. Keep in mind I've never done much with create mode except fiddle around really. So don't expect to much awesomeness. hah

Maybe it was red. It's been a couple months. And just looking at the one that was spot lighted, it looks like my level stands no chance next to yours so don't worry hahaha.

I've done some stuff with the PS3 create mode, but not really anything with the PSP. I'm focusing on actually just making it work right now, not visuals (as you will see the second you load the level) , and yours looked pretty nice for a psp level. ( I'm gonna have to check out your level. )

Anyways I'm right now testing it trying to make sure the little tiny bit I currently have is do-able with a constant score chain. Hopefully I'll have the short section up sometime tonight or tomorrow. I really should be doing stuff for my finals. But eh, a little more LBP can't hurt right? XD

I've heard the PSP community is more closely knitted so I'm kind of excited to be trying this out.

Um I don't know what else to say since I haven't done this before.

I know it looks bad visually right now, but at least I gave you a beautiful background to look at, hah.

Level name: Score challenge demo

Such an enthralling name, right? hah
and if you didn't notice my PSN name is also LukeCF.


Thanks!!

It was a while ago. I thought it was green but it very well may have been red. Got christmas on my mind I guess.
I used a nast word? I assume you mean nasty and I'm not sure what word that would be?
If it was lord then I guess I didn't think religious terms mattered here but if they do I will gladly change the word to something else?

unXpectiD
12-11-2010, 11:04 PM
i did mean nasty and ii was looking at how you described the apearance of you level.
a small word beggining with c...
ps we have no problems with whatever religious veiws you have.

LukeCF
12-11-2010, 11:17 PM
...How exactly is that word nasty?

unXpectiD
12-11-2010, 11:33 PM
the line
"I know it looks [the nasty word is here] right now, but at least..."
you think that thats an alright word?
values must have changed...
i feel out of touch with the world...
perhaps its because getting my freinds to allow me to eat their hearts that im so alone and out of touch.
*sigh*

When you're a college student with friends who swear a lot and say things like that's so g.. (word for happy) or that's so reta... (word for slow), which bothers me sooo much, Saying crap isn't nearly as bad.

12-12-2010, 12:03 AM
well last time i checked its frowned upon here.
oh and just to make it clear my freinds ask me to eat their hearts and i do not force them to make that kind of decision.

LukeCF
12-12-2010, 12:43 AM
Well I'll go ahead and change that word then, alright? And pssst have you tried the level yet?

unXpectiD
12-12-2010, 12:53 AM
no not yet.
ive suffered the complete level death.
a glitch unique to me in which all 30 versions of one of my levels have broken beyond repair. so ive been crying in a corner for 2 hours.

Sounds interesting, sad to here about both you and unXpectiDs stability problems--other than a few red screens which I usually caused by doing stupid things, I've been one of the lucky ones. As for your level, it's too bad I'm horrible at score chains, but I still have fun jumpin around.

By the way, do you have a theme for the level? Even if you do not care too much about appearance, having some materials, music, background, and stickers that go together goes a long way, even if it's not complicated.

LukeCF
12-12-2010, 02:34 AM
Well so far my theme has been... brown. Hah.

I used rusty steel and some sort of patchy sponge. I completely forgot about music because I've been creating with the sound off and the tv on.
I was thinking about using some stickers but since all my date got erased. Twice. I've yet to go back through story mode again to get everything. Just done some of it. Perhaps I should do some more of it.

3 tings:
1- Green screen, red screen... CHRISTMAS!!!!
2- Sure I'd like to help test
3- on behalf of your PSP crashes, I get it worse than you and you just gotta suck it up. I recently got a corrupt profiile and I get crashes about 2-3 a week. You need to either remember or set some sort of timer that tells you to save every 30 min or sooner to avoid this. You must also copy your LBP data from your memory card on the computer at least once a week. This just reminded me, I need to go do it too! Be back in a little bit!

The Screens of Death (R/G/Y/SOD) as far as I know are:

-Yellow screen: Community moon freeze
-Red screen: Create freeze 1: Too many corners in one space
-Green screen: ??? What were you doing when it happened?

LukeCF
12-12-2010, 03:33 PM
It must have been the red screen of death. Which has already been established if you would have read the posts.

Kay well I posted it online. You guys can test out the short section now if you want and get back with feed back. It's under my psn name LukeCF. The only level that should be published by me.
