hi everyone... I thought I'll try this CL too... I read the instructionz WalkingBear wrot... it halped me a lot... thanks WalkingBear... good job... ... now, I think I made a mistake... I'm at the warpstone area with all three gruntz and missed the RW to the boxing gluve area... ... please... where is that RW...
I believe you want either a Shovel or Gauntletz Grunt to go through the Red Warp. It is located within the rectangle that you go down the stepz to enter ... above the two enemy Sword Grunt Object Guardz.
There must be a correct CL floating around somewhere, but the one I downloaded here is not. It shows 37 coins on the tally and there are only 35!
I used the editor and found an instance of 3 identical covered powerups with coins on them stacked on top of each other.
Can we get a corrected version?
The version I have on my own hard drive is dated October 15, 2003 (18.4KB) ... how about yours? I corrected a number of errors in the puzzle (two Coinz on one Tile type of error) and sent it to MommaGruntz ... and (I believe) everyone on the Gruntz Fanz list. I will check on the version on my web host ... perhapz I didn't upload the corrected version there.
I was playing a 2002 version of the game. I downloaded the version on this forum and notice it has an exclamation mark after the title. That must be the new version. I had assumed it would be the same title and overwrite the old version... :-[
I am working on a walkthrough for this CL, but only have the componentz, not the main line (at all!). This should not be extremely time-consuming to write, as most of what is required cannot be laid out "cook book" fashion. Each Gruntzer will have to find his/her own solution ... I would likely just write out the problem to be solved, with the way I did it ... which is not necessarily the best way. There are certain thingz that must be done in a certain overall sequence, but several thingz are interchangable ... a (e i o u) z ... where the (e i o u) may be done in any order. Clear as mud?
For now, the locationz of the 35 Coinz; the Toolz you acquire; and the Secretz are the only 'helpz' I have available for viewerz.
The walkthrough is now complete, except for screenshotz showing the actual locationz of the WARP letterz for this Custom Level. I have not taken the screenshotz as yet, and have 'place-holderz' from the last CL that I made up the HTML walkthrough for in the folder on my hard drive. So the WARP linkz will not work. I don't think any other imagez are necessary, and even those for the WARP letterz are only 'nice to have' ... not necessary.
I have been working on the historical listz of Gruntz Custom Levelz released by year, and came across this one that had a walk-through ... still linking explicitly to Neron Hosting (defunct service), so I updated most of the componentz today. I also created a "View the map!" image (almost 4 megabytez(!) in support of the walkthrough re-writing process. And I just finished bringing the original post up to current format ... and am too tired to finish the job tonight. I am not happy with the appearance of the semi-borderless HTML displayz, so will fix those tomorrow as I am updating the rest of the componentz. And there should definitely be 35 Coinz ... not 37 ... so if your Statz Page image showz you acquired only 35 out of 37 ... you have the uncorrected version, and should download the one available from this Forum.
The walk-through is now complete, and there are no more unsupported imagez without text (in case the web host is not available) to explain what the [image] was supposed to show. The walk-through is based upon my 47:44 game timer time Statz Page image ... and following it should allow anyone to reach a "PERFECT!" result in even less time than that! (I eliminated every single enemy grunt in areaz 2, 3 4, 5 and 6 ... which took quite a bit of time.)
