Thanks a lot for all the info, Ligan! :)

 

My latest comments below are in green.

 

 

I'm a little confused about that part in parentheses, as I haven't changed the tune.

 

I probably thought the tune was modified because I played the game in ZX Spin, and this particular emulator does have sound issues - the title screen tune seemed incomplete, hence I thought it had been altered. Nothing to worry about, it's SPIN's problem only :) .

 

 

 - As for credits, I'd prefer to be credited as "LiganTM" (not a trademark, it's just my username on some other websites).

 

That's what I will use for credits, thanks.

 

 

 - This is the first (and only) place where I've shown the game, however before calling it a gamma-release, I'd like to tweak some things in it (nothing gameplay changing, so your walkthrough will still be 100% accurate)

 

Okay, so the date of your first release here will be listed in Chronology (whenever I update it) as "beta release" (I think this will correspond to the actual situation faithfully), and I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE GAMMA RELEASE!  :D

 

Lastly, to answer the last question, I have tried making a few remakes in the past, but most of them have nothing worthy in them. :/

 

I don't know about your past efforts, but judging by "Manic Miner Hard", your future efforts (if you undertake them) will be a delight to the players :).

 

Thanks again for all the info, Ligan, I look forward to the gamma release of the game, and if you need any assistance with the final tweaks, I am sure that the friendly folks here will be able and pleased to provide it :).

Ligan,

 

Is there any chance you will gamma-release "Manic Miner Hard" in the near future? It would be nice to be able to add the game to the "official" list of gamma-released MM games on JSW Central :).

Mostly changed some room titles.

Nothing too game-changing, but one spike has been added to the 16th cavern.

 

EDIT : fixed embarassing typo in the title screen ._.

Thanks Ligan!

 

So is the official name for this project "Manic Miner: Back to the Mine"?

 

I should point out that the additional wording on the Title Screen actually says "Back to to the Mine"!

Thanks, Ligan! :)

 

I take it the game is gamma-released now. I will add it to the list of MM games on JSW Central when time permits (it could be a while, I'm very busy in real life right now).

 

I will have to re-record my RZX walkthrough, too (that's OK, it'll be a pleasure :) ).

 

I will credit the game to "LiganTM", according to your wish expressed previously. Could you please clarify whether the name of the game to be used 'officially' is "Manic Miner Hard", or "Manic Miner: Back to the Mine", or something else still?

 

Thanks again!  :thumbsup:

I can confirm the edited file (without redundant "to") is the final version and the "official" name is Manic Miner: Back to the Mine.

Thanks for the update, Ligan! It's really great that you have finalised this project!  :D  :thumbsup:

 

(There are some great MM and JSW games which had almost-ready beta-releases, but have never made it to the stage of being declared final by their authors - what a shame!)

 

As mentioned before, I will do an update of JSW Central and I will re-record the RZX walkthrough, but it will probably a few weeks before it happens (due to real-life strain).

Danny, did you notice that Ligan uploaded a corrected version of the file to post #13 in this thread?

Yes, and I've grabbed it. Thanks for making Ligan aware of the problem in the first place, and for making sure I've got the right version :).
