The only thing terribly wrong with this hold is the abusive scrolls. Most of the rooms were just thrown together, but 1S1E showed some thought process involved in its creation. It wasn't terribly entertaining, but it also only took about 5 minutes to play, so it's not like much time was invested in it.

My honest opinion is that if the scrolls were removed, and much of 3S were removed, this would be a decent five-minute hold. If you seek a short little diversion, go ahead and download, but fear the totally abusive scrolls.

A very short time, that is. :)

Short, and mostly harmless - though indeed the scrolls were annoying.

And it seems to have been named after me... Oh well, maybe not.

Eh, yeh know how you were talking about this hold and how E-Z it was? Well THAT WAS THE POINT! :D Well anyway about the scrolls they were written by the dark evil guy who writes scrolls and forces them into my game so don't blame me, blame yourself for going for my :)pointless:) scrolls. Well anyway I am currently in the proccess of making the MULTI-LEVEL E-Z HOLD I mean it's not like you WANT it, blah blah blah...

EDIT 08/03/05: Oh, god I was stupid back then. I need to look into changing the wording on this post.

That's a browser issue, dividend, not a hold issue. You should be able to go in to the browser's preferences and set the download options to always ask where to put files.

That's why its called the 1-level E-Z hold and its not called the "Multi-level soulcrushing epic dungeon of peril" or "Bavato's" (esperanto for "Multi-level, soulcrushing, epic, and perilous")

As a matter of fact, it has one of the more descriptive names around. "Tar Time", for example is not a time, but is actually a hold, ImpossibleCubes is actually possible, and Happyhouse is actually been feeling quite under the weather lately.

Hey, welcome to the forums. I assume you're talking about Rank Points, and they don't have anything to do with the game; they're kept entirely within the forums. When you make a post here that someone likes, they may mark it as Good, and you will get a rank point. If you make a post here that someone doesn't like, they may mark it as Bad (but we're all pretty good about only doing that if the post is offensive or unnecessarily rude or something), and you would lose a rank point.

In general, if your posts are meant to be helpful and are not harsh, your rank points should continue going up and up, leading to peace on earth and death to the pod-people.

As for transferring your victory over to Architect's Edition, I'll have to defer to someone who knows more about that than I. I think that if you install AE over your current version, the appropriate files are preserved and so is your completion of Dugan's Dungeon, but I won't guarantee it.

I'd advise not to install over your old version or delete it subsequently.

As long as you have not moved the 1.5 version from its original location, when you install DROD 1.6, the program will automatically copy over your data for you (although behaviour changes will damage some demos).

It's a good idea to keep the 1.5, since it acts as a backup just in case your 1.6 crashes, which it rarely does, but notably can, so saving your progress in Dugan's Dungeon.

Installing in the same folder, I think, replaces the .dat files for DROD, which means you lose the data stored in them.

Also, if your posts are stupid, random, or pointless when they're not supposed to be, like my last post on this discussion thingy, you could get modded down.

Hehe, hilarious.

I kinda do agree with it being too easy and too short, and the scrolls were rather annoying. Someone was in a rush while making this hold.

Keep posting,

Heh, just completed this hold.

Fun for about 10 minutes. Actually, it took me a lot longer because I forgot to clean a room halfway the hold so that I have to restore again...

Not the best of holds, but it has its uses. :)

The puzzles were actually okay for a beginner hold, and I would have voted it higher if not for the fact that the scrolls were just too abusive. As it stands you get a 2 fun and a 3 difficulty. Hope your next hold is a little less abrasive. :)

1) Click on the file link to the left of the top post and save it on your computer.

2) Open DROD, click Play Game, and then click Change Location.

3) In the change location screen, press Import, and choose the file you just downloaded.

Have fun! :)

Of course that's the thing. I don't know where this top post thing is. So there's no way to get to the left of it. The rest, I think I can figure out.

These messages we type are called "posts".

So scroll up to the top message on this page, from "admin". The attachment is on the left hand side of that message.

Thanks! :thumbsup

It was okay. Better than a lot of first holds that I've seen but nothing particularly fascinating. Thanks for putting some time into it and sharing though!
