In reading through this thread, looking for possible broken linkz, I ran across the discussion about the 'future' Gruntz Level Editor possibility of alternate graphicz setz. Duh! How many timez have we been presented with "Cannot find Gruntz.REZ file. Would you like to...". The answer has alwayz been "Yes" and entering the path in both the REZ and EXE stringz. So why not make those same changez, but then add '1' (or '2' ... or 'N'!) just before ".REZ"? Thereby using an entirely new set of graphicz! We already have some talented people who have designed alternate tilez, and otherz who have managed to make changez to a REZ file (I can't ... my Firewall says that WinRezLT contains a Trojan, and immediately quarantines every version I have been able to locate). So we only need someone who can modify a REZ file to coordinate the (re-)building of graphicz setz, and graphically talented people to create them. Coordinate, so that we don't have two (or more) people designing a replacement for Area 5 (High Rollerz, now). Then, there is only the minor problem of telling the Gruntz Level Editor that we want to use Gruntz1.REZ instead of Gruntz.REZ in designing a Custom Level. Those who have experimented with alternate tile setz have already determined how to do that, so we are that much closer to "Gruntz 2" type puzzle capabilitiez.
I had to use the file extension "txt" to get the system to accept the new link. You must change the file extension to "JigsawPuzzle8" in order to import it into the Microsoft/XBox free game "JigSaw".
This Grunt Custom Quest is (IMNSHO) the best visual map ever created. "...Tetris" is a close second.
Anyway, since I am no longer able to play most of the Gruntz Questz anymore on Windows 10, I decided to experiment with the puzzle creation capability of JigSaw, using the JPG of this Quest as input. In the Jigsaw game you will have four options ranging from easy to expert. I chose 'expert' (150 pieces) and it took me a little over an hour to put the puzzle together. So this is a new way for us to continue to enjoy Gruntz (sort of), even on a Windows 10 computer.
Here's another level I didn't write a walkthrough for. And now I'm having trouble solving it. What was I thinking?
I'll try the jigsaw, GooRoo, if I can figure out how. Do I need to open the jigsaw game first?
You start in the tree outside the castle ... I remember that much.
Jigsaw is a free downloadable game part of the Microsoft/Xbox collection of games. Several puzzles are bundled with the game; you can 'earn' additional puzzles in each collection by solving a certain number of the free (they call it 'unlocked') puzzles. You would 'import' the one I provided from your Legend folder (you did save it there as "GruntzLegend.JigsawPuzzle8", didn't you?) into the game, where you could select from 'Easy', 'Medium', 'Hard' or 'Expert' versions.
