MMR update #36

Not a great deal done this week on the project (most of my time was spent on LAN). Hopefully I'll have more time this week to progress a lot more on LAN and to fix some outstanding bugs.

A name in parenthesis and in bold is the finder of the bug/quirk. Thanks to all, I really do appreciate your time and support. Cheers!


  • fixed incorrect dialog title when loading puzzle sets


  • fixed monk mode (YOG cheat) not working correctly
  • monks can now chase runners when stuck falling on another monk (classic mode) (Howie)
  • darkness mode updated;
  • no longer uses a 2D render target
  • pixel shader does all the work
  • should fix issue with darkness not rendering on Ubuntu (Tim)

You can read more on darkness mode on this blog post.

Bugs being worked on

  • monks spawning outside game bounds
  • jerky movement when playing on Ubuntu machines
  • monks merging when ladders are involved
