To me, it just tends to make levels less fun. I guess it's just me, but those levels are almost always my least favorite, even on the official games. Unless they move real fast.

Autoscroll is good to increase the difficulty, but I've found that the highest speed is too fast. So fast, in fact, that it eventually overtakes you and you can't get ahead of it! O_o Still, add in a continuous Bullet Bill generator with the Medium speed, and you've got a good area. Just... Slow speed is good for those mazes, but... Make one mistake, and POOF! Minus one life for you.

In short, autoscrolls make hacks better if you use them the right way. Maybe that's why you hate them. Or maybe it's because of the thing that's taking the minds of all children in this world: THE NEED FOR SPEED. (No pun intended.) Seriously, people these days want to go faster, faster, faster, faster, FASTER! It drives me crazy! I like fast things, too, and I hate things too slow, but I only hate the autoscroll when it's on the highest speed.

So, again I ask you, KoT (Easier to type than Knight of Time, huh?), any chances of you releasing your YI ExGFX yet?

Well, yeah, the highest speed is too fast to do anything complicated with it, but that's what keeps in on your toes. Not recommended for common use, but in a few key areas it can make things go nuts.

And the autoscroll + bullet bill generator combo has been used so often in hacks that it's a design cliche and literally makes me go "ugh" every time I see it now. I've just run into it too many times. As far as I can tell, it's the lazy way out to making an auto scroller busy.

And the getting squished behind the scenary part of autoscrolling is fine... the problem is when your in a clear-like place and you can't go ahead, and have to wait it out. I like to go through the levels at my own pace... with some hacks, I'd probably quit if I didn't have the fast forward key.

Hi, sorry I took so long to reply guys.

The holidays kept me fairly busy, and on top of that, college resumed, so I haven't really been able to do much work in revising parts of my hack.

But, some parts have been changed, I couldn't really think of removing the bonus rooms or making them harder to reach in my first world, so I decided to put in fewer coins. It's just that, I can get ideas easily for levels from previous games/other hacks, even if some aren't as good as others.

I will release my YI ExGFX (it's mainly the bricks from my second and third castle, and the YI style spikes) sooner or later when I have the time (I was just about to give you guys the revised demo, but I don't have time to do that tonight, sorry. You guys will have to wait until tomorrow, if I have time then).

Okay, sorry about the double post, but I have made several changes to my hack, so you guys can download it again if you want.

Hopefully now it will be the "right" time to start my fourth world, this one's going to be full of new stuff.

Did anyone else notice that timed lifts, like those in the first picture, will float on lava? I haven't tried it with water or sloped lava.

Looks as if the author of this hack enjoys spikes. I've been too busy working on my own hack to start downloading and playing more of them though.

Who says hacks need to be locked? I didn't do so.
