Dark Matter Mode bugs
« on: December 07, 2009, 10:31:05 PM »
I completed all the main game levels and went to try the dark matter - but something seems off:

I don't see scenarios 1 or 2.  I do have buttons for 3-25

I can't complete level 4 - as soon as the last enemy seedling is killed, the game freezes.  It kind of acts like there is a "congratulations" box that should be showing, but I don't see it and can't get the game to respond.  I have completed 5 & 6 - unfortunately I can't remember if I saw the congrat box at the end.

I am not seeing the "instructions" box at the beginning of the scenarios like in the main game - telling the story and what the objectives are.

I am running the latest version, 2.02.  I've got one of the Intel graphics cards that was not working until the patch.

Otherwise, this has been quite a fun little game!

That's how it should be. there are no enemy seedlings in levels 1 and 2.

I can't complete level 4 - as soon as the last enemy seedling is killed, the game freezes.  It kind of acts like there is a "congratulations" box that should be showing, but I don't see it and can't get the game to respond.
Try and see if you can click the Menu button at the bottom of the screen to enter the pause menu. If that works, resume the game and see if it works again. The game sometimes does that for me.
However, it might just freeze all over :)

I am not seeing the "instructions" box at the beginning of the scenarios like in the main game - telling the story and what the objectives are.
That is also how it should be. There is no story in the Dark Matter mode. As the info box when entering Dark Matter mode for the first time told you, the aim of each level is to occupy all asteroids.

As HKK stated, the lack of scenarios 1 and 2, along with the absence of the instructions box at the beginning is supposed to happen. The interesting little bug you encountered on level four, however, is not supposed to happen.

It appears that the level is attempting to finish when all of the enemies are defeated. However, Dark Matter Mode sets the level completion condition to "Capture All Asteroids". I think this conflict is what is causing the error.

For me, it freezes when I would have beaten it in normal mode, whatever the objectives were.  I can unfreeze by opening the menu and closing it.
