Hello, thanks for zapping hours of my life with this game:D(my gf isnt so thankful though haha)

My problem is that in Windermere, I slay all the Ducks at the Idol but nothing happens after they all die!? No cutscene to proclaim me the hero lol.

I'm playing the most current version downloaded from this site, I'm also on Win7.

Thanks,

Martin

I've got the exact same problem. No matter what I do I can't trigger the animation. As soon as I leave the screen after killing all the ducks, they all just reappear like normal.

Hrm... sounds like a bug. There are two things that would really help me out in fixing it:

1. Can you try it with the latest version of Dink Smallwood HD? It's 1.4.3.

2. Can you attach your save file? (save?.dat)

I'll check it out from this end as well. I know people have been passing that part so I'm thinking maybe it was added in a sort of recent build or else only happens in some circumstances.

Hey,
I am currently using the latest version (1.4.3)

I am not sure how to upload the save.dat file. The forum uploader keeps telling me it is an invalid file.
I could always email it though

Thanks,
James

Hey James,

Sure, please email seth@rtsoft.com. Thanks, this will be very helpful.

Guys, I found and fixed the bug. :sweatdrop::poop::sweatdrop::whistling:

(In a recent subtle change I'd made in an effort to make the interpreter more robust I'd caused bug that would occur if the script used the "external" command on the last function of a file, and if the filet happened to end with blank lines.. it wouldn't return to the original file.. BAD!)

Thank you both for the help, greatly appreciated.

I've put up the fixed Windows version (http://www.rtsoft.com/dink/DinkSmallwoodHDInstaller.exe). I verified it works with James' saved game.

I'm pretty sure the iOS version is broken too, will update ASAP. Android version might be ok but I will update it as well to be safe.

Hey, thanks!
It worked fine. except now, as soon as I beat the evil one the program encounters an error and has to close. It occurs right after Dink says he has to go back to the castle and inform the king.

I'll email my save file again.

Thanks - Hmm, I'm not able to duplicate this bug as easily. I used your save file and beat "the evil one" with hellfire, light sword, and bow (for the last blow) and each time it worked ok.

Can you think of anything I may need to do to experience the bug? Is the crash reproducible on your side? :sweatdrop: I had someone else report the same thing a few days ago.

It is definitely reproducible. Everytime I beat the evil one, no matter how, the game encounters the problem.

I really don't know why it wouldn't happen for you. I'm using winxp if that matters.

Exactly the same is happening to me, except that instead of crashing, the game freezes.

I'm running Windows 7, btw.

Thanks guys, I've put up 1.4.5 which I believe fixes the problem (http://www.rtsoft.com/dink/DinkSmallwoodHDInstaller.exe).

Hi I am stuck at the ducks too. The ipad version. Nothing happens once I kill all the ducks. Please help! :-)

Dink HD V1.4.5 with all fixes has been submitted to Apple, hopefully will go live on the iPad soon. It's already live for Android. :sweatdrop:
