I will be sending this Custom Level out to all of the people on the "Gruntz Fanz" address list in a few minutez. For those of you you have already used the link in this thread to download the puzzle, I apologize for the delay in distributing it. There have just been an unusually large number of demands on my time in the last three days.
Edit: This Custom Level was sent to 55 Gruntz Fanz! Unfortunately, 4 recipients' e-mail addresses are no longer valid:
My "Gruntz Fanz" list has been updated to delete the bad addresses.
i am at the last cp 2 of the gruntz are standing on the perpule switchez but only one pyramid came dowen and it's out of reach what did i miss?
Are you talking about the Purple Pyramidz around the Warpstone?
and how do i get to the second island?
For you, is the "second island" the one with the Warp Letter "W", or the one with the Invulnerability PowerUp? The "W" island is reached by activating the "?" switch where the enemy Suicide Bomber is. The "Invulnerability" island is reached from the vicinity of the two Purple Switches with the Sword Grunt CheckPoint Switch.
Can you do a "Print Scrn" of the Warpstone area and use MS Paint to SAVE it (OMGILMBAMS1.bmp), and another of the Purple Switches area (OMGILMBAMS2.bmp), then use MS Paint to trim both images dwon and combine them into a single file (OMGILMBAMS.GIF), and e-mail it to me, please? The two areas are probably too far apart to get into one screen print, that's why I am suggesting two, and cutting out what is not important and combining the parts I really need to see. You should have two Gruntz standing on the two Purple Switchez, and one Grunt going to get the Warpstone to take to the King. I had no problem with it, and am wondering why you do have a problem there.
I also think you sent a wrong level : there is a bug with the final purple pyramids. There are only 7 around the warp stone and i think the level was designed with 8 ones but the first (in the top left corner) is missing. I don't understand why, but it makes only the second one (in the top middle) to go down, so we can't get to the warpstone.
My copy of the Custom Level is also missing the upper left-hand corner Purple Pyramid! I don't know how that happened, really I don't! I moved one Observatory (EyeCandy) and changed two Tilez from #1 to other Tilez. Somehow, I must have entered Tile #1 in that location where the PP should be. I have added the Tile (#255) back in my copy, and will re-upload it to my host. That PP is at X=0, Y=0 (default starting position of the Gruntz Level editor), so I must have hit the spacebar (in error) when I opened up the CL in order to do those 3 minor changes. I will have the new version available for download when I post this reply.
Because I have to un-sticky every Gruntz in Space CL that comes before it alphabetically, then sticky yours, and re-sticky the rest. That is the type of thing I only do when I have nothing to do ... aesthetic changes, that do not affect the usefulness of the Forum.
2. And other thing why is it still "The latest released is Tropical Tour"
If you paid attention to the releases in the last month, you would know that there has been a delay of a few days before the "latest released" has been updated for each new release. It involves doing an update of the headers & footers; I try to combine several updates into one, because of the danger of code changes going wrong. I have two windows open for that maintenance task ... one to do the work, and one as insurance in case of error. The process is slow.

1. Why isn't it sticky? 2. And other thing why is it still "The latest released is Tropical Tour"
#1 may be fixed optional #2 Must be fixed now!!!! This level is newer than Tropical Tour, believe me I checked the days!
Chill out, dude!!! Because of the number of posts to this topic, it's already a "hot" topic, meaning, I think, that any new posts to the topic will keep it toward the top just beneath the "sticky"-ed topics. That's not a bad place to be. And like GooRoo pointed out, the changes you seek require time and thought. No "Presto! Change-o!" here. One seemingly minor mistake made in a detail and all kinds of havoc can be wrought. I found that out the hard way in a couple of programming classes I took, where my grade on most assignments was based upon the number of attempts it took for my program to run successfully, i.e. 1 or 2 attempts, an A, etc. Patience, my friend, patience.
A word to the wise (you know who you are): I don't think you are in a position to demand anything, if you know what I mean.
I can't take it anymore! I think I'm going to ex-PLODE!! ...Ha! Ha! Scared ya', didn't I?
