The gate of Panselo is closed and after paying the debt of the orphan, i went to another save slot and the gate is closed too, the bullets can´t go through and can´t make it work above the gate neither!

Same problem as the other guy. Freed Lisa, Panselo door is locked, can't seem to hit the switch with the slingshot.

I'm having trouble getting past the gate of Panselo after freeing Lisa, the gate remains shut and trying to use the slingshot to open the gate doesn't work either.

You can get the gate open if you have Item 3, you need to lodge it just above the entrance, where it juts out, so you can jump onto it, from there, you can use the slingshot to open the gate.

Made a video, because I suck at describing things. http://youtu DOT be/KqZHjs4XSPE

I hope that helps someone. Good luck all of y'all.

Can't get past 66. He's way too fast for me.

Same here: after paying the debt of Lisa - no new locations, no new characters or items. I searched everywhere :( . And gate is closed too. What to do next? Or where can i get this Item 3?

Quells responds:

You need to return to Panselo after rescuing Lisa and talk to Alex. A previous bug prevented people from re-entering Panselo. If you have this bug refresh your browser and make sure the version reads 1.07

What about the main character having an idle animation?
Just throwing that out not that it bugs me or anything.

The left analogue up/down controls are inverted on the Xbox controller.

Was there something that had to be done in prison cell block D? Cause I accidentally skipped opening Cell Block D till the end of the game. (I got to Cell Block E by accidentally dropping a bomb while inspecting Cell Block C's weak floor.) - u-;;;

Quells responds:

All you missed were some NPC comments and a hint about finding the weak floor in block C. There are no missables in the game. (If there is, that's a bug. PM me if you think you've found one)

There's a bug when the game ends and it says "Good-bye until next time!" you can press space and an invisible menu appears you can toggle the fullscreen and other things.
By the way, amazing game just brilliant! Hope there's a sequel. *fingers crossed*

How do I enter the block D? I do not have a suitable weapon, where can I get it?

Is there a limit to how many chocolate protein drinks you can take? I've taken about two or three before they stopped boosting health and I was wondering if this was intentional or a bug.

Quells responds:

This is now covered in the newly added completionist section of the FAQ: http://quells.newgrounds.com/news/post/904515

(spoiler alert) I accidentally use the key for the door in the same room in the robot boss in the forgotten forest. Now, i don't know how to get another.


DarksteelXDarksteelX

2014-08-24 23:38:41

Walkernator91: Go back a few areas and head up, kill all the enemies in that area, one should drop a key.

Is there a fool-proof way to open the treasure area in the prison (main hall between blocks a and b)? I seem not to be able to use the bomb/slingshot/spear on all four spots in reasonable short time.


SuperSapitoSuperSapito

2014-08-27 20:31:02

The game does not load for me. Anyone with the same issue?

Quells responds:

Can you PM me with the details of what you're seeing? Does your save display "No Data" or does it display data but loading causes a crash?

Bug report: When I shot the slingshot at the bombs carried by two harpies next to each other, the game slowed to a crawl and eventually Flashplayer crashed. It happened in the last room of Forgotten Forest (first when entering from E).

Quells responds:

Fixed as of v 1.13 :)

You've made some massive improvements, especially the moonstone/heart crystal count, and the medal resubmit. I'd say you've softened enough edges to pass a console certification! Hope version 1.14 will be the last, or next to last tweaking... you've gotta declare victory sometime! Also hope you enjoy this holiday weekend, you've certainly earned it.

Quells responds:

Heh, thanks! Just put up v 1.15 to round out the medal checking logic. I forgot there's a holiday this weekend! The plan is to slow the pace of updates as less and less bugs get reported. So hopefully soon!

I need some backup! I cannot get that flying jelly, I must have executed about 1000 of these poor little harmless winged creatures and there has not been a single drop of the jelly... Any hint or a routine to make them do the drop ?

Thanks/ Tip

Quells responds:

Make sure you have the Lucky Belt item. That will double the rate of your drops!

I found a minor bug where if you pause the game through the status menu and have the blood ring and less than 10 health, your health will still regenerate over time. Also, occasionally the particle effects for the jet boots will stop happening.
As well as this, if you have the jet boots and press jump again immediately after jumping, making them activate as soon as possible, you will reach a very slightly higher height. This can be used in combination with a very accurately placed spear to get on top of one of the columns in the Daea castle's front, although there is no platform for you to stand on, rendering this small glitch practically useless.
Also, if you activate the jet boots right before hitting the ground after falling, you will hover despite being right on top of the ground, and this can be used to cancel landing lag after falling from a high place.
