In topic How forgiving is this game?
Just wanted to pop in and say I bought the game during the summer sale and it's virtually all I've played. I'm near the end now (just finished the DNA database rewriting puzzle) and while some of the puzzles were quite hard at first I've mostly figured it out on my own. I have had to peruse the forums here and reddit for tips now and then though.

In topic How forgiving is this game?
I've played and enjoyed most of the Zach games now (besides this and Shenzen) but I eventually got stuck and gave up on all of them except Opus Magnum. The reason I continued Opus was because of the unlimited play area and resources. Regardless of how inefficient or expensive my solution became I was able to proceed, whereas the other games work on more constricted rules, which blocked my progression.
So what I'm asking is: Is this game more like Opus, or more like the others? I don't want to buy something I'm going to get stumped on after five or six levels.

You'll come at them from the other side. They confused me too.

Did you look at any of the posts he linked? It's totally different from crouching.

Sorry OP, I'm not sure how to do that either.
I know you figured this out already, but I thought I'd share my silly way of getting up there.
This requires that you haven't destroyed that first lone box.

This was how I got to all the areas before I realized you even could destroy the boxes. I had only hit them from the shielded side and then assumed that, like the blocks destroyed by fire in Bergen, I wasn't supposed to get in there til I had the next element. I didn't even clue in until after I came back with the ice element and still "couldn't" destroy the boxes.

Haha, ah alright. I guess I was hoping there was some hidden content waiting for me. Sorry to be a nerd. ;)

Maybe this is nitpicky, but I only count 92. :P
16 in the neutral grid, and 19 in each of the others.
I'm only in chapter 9 yet, but I don't see anything else on the circuit grid. Am I missing something?

Oh god I'm not just dumb, I'm an idiot.

I thought the area I'm aiming at, and the area across from it were on the same level and I couldn't jump to that area on the left. Once again I was burned by assumptions and overthinking.

In topic Ascension Temple
I must be dumb, or I'm missing something tragically obvious. I cannot figure out how to get the gold chest on the left. I have the other two. I JADC'd between the two lamps at the entrance because I didn't think I could get on those pillars. But now I have been on top of all four of the pillars in the lower area (although that bottom-right one is a real pain to get to). Am I supposed to reach something from there?

Is there more than one hidden warp point?

What was this tip out of curiousity?

In topic Map Sticker Reqest
I'm not sure how reliable a solution this is, but you could edit the image file the stamps are pulled from and change one of the existing stamps to whatever you want (assuming you aren't utilizing all the stamps already). They're just .png's IIRC. An update will probably replace the file though so maybe make a backup of your edited file.

I personally changed the default stamp because I found I kept overlooking it as part of the map since it's a similar colour. I believe the file you'll want to edit is menu.png.

In topic What is each orb's "element"?
Thanks! I was doing some testing and starting to figure these out but it's nice to have some confirmation.

What about the ring and necklace powers? I imagine most match up, but I'm sure the Forbidden Tome's spell is fire. Are there others that differ?

In topic What is each orb's "element"?
I know some are obvious, like iron is blunt and blade is sharp. But what is wind for instance? Are any orbs multiple? Like maybe empire is dark and aura? Just trying to figure out how each orb corresponds to the bestiary strengths/weaknesses list.

"Shouldn't be sold"? So you're saying that even though it runs fine for me (and many other people), I shouldn't have been able to buy it because some people have problems with it? :steamfacepalm:

In topic Blocked route in Gardens?
Well I hate to answer my own question.. but I found it.

For anyone curious: You get diving gear after beating the 4th round of the arena in the Keep.

In topic Blocked route in Gardens?
So I found the water switches before I explored the areas that the water gets dumped into. I tried going back to the switch thinking *maybe* it was a toggle, but no dice. Have I forever lost access to the areas beyond or is there some sort of diving upgrade later on?

In topic Bug report? Magic upgrade menu stuck
So I consider this minor, as it has a fairly simple fix, but I encountered an issue where the magic upgrade menu had no selection highlight and all I could do was cancel it.

    To reproduce:
  1. Have 1 spell, save the game.
  2. Buy a second spell.
  3. Select the second spell in the upgrade menu (unsure if applying an upgrade is necessary).
  4. Quit/Reload saved game.
  5. Visit upgrade menu. It seems the second spell slot is still selected, and you are unable to to change it.
Solution is to buy a spell, move the selection back to slot 1, and reload save.

I discovered this while testing spells/upgrades. I only had the dagger spell, but I had some gems, so I wanted to see what the differences in upgrades were. I saved, bought the axe spell, used all my gems (which was only enough to do 2 upgrades), then I reloaded to test the upgrades on the dagger and discovered the menu was stuck.

Yeah it's in fullscreen.

In topic Game minimizes shortly after starting
It's the weirdest thing. About 12-15 seconds after the game starts it minimizes and I'm back on my desktop. It doesn't crash, I can go right back into it, but it's annoying nonetheless. Doesn't seem to happen to other games though.

It's an ability you unlock after defeating a giant spider boss.
