September 1, 2001 - Version 2.0 has been
This version has many, many changes for Vexed
fans. Here are just some highlights:
- External "level pack" databases are now supported,
provided by Scott Ludwig. The original version 1.3 and 1.4a
versions are now built-in. Seven new external level packs
are now available, over 400 new levels! Not only are there
many new levels, but there are now tools to generate and
solve levels, allowing us to tailor level pack difficulty.
Thanks a lot, Scott!
- Fantastic new color graphics provided by Matthew
McClintock and David Croy. There are six different sets of
color blocks, and three sets for monochrome devices. Thanks
Matt and David!
- Solutions and scoring! You can now view the solution
for any level, but it'll cost you! There's now a golf-like
"par" method of scoring in Vexed. The more moves you make
over par, the higher your score. You'll be surprised when
you go back and do the original levels that par is not
always that easy to do!
- Many new features, including 15-move undo, replay
current level, replay previous level, move a block more
than one space at a time (if legal), smoother animation,
faster screen writes, saving current status of level in
preferences, and more.
- Many fixes, including transparency problems with
bitmaps, tapping on pull-down menus, and more.
For a complete list of changes, see the version history
on the Miscellaneous page.
