Hey all, here's a thread where we get to polish up and make changes to the contest entries before they are published.

Here's what I've already changed:
* Fixed typo on Unbottled Cellar's scroll
* Marked 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries on their scrolls
* At Nuntar's request, fixed incorrectly pointing force arrow under potion in Eleventh Level 1W of Castle Repton Annex, and also added North-facing force arrow to same passageway in 1N1W. These changes prevent the potion from being free.

Things I think would be nice to change, but won't do so without the author's permission:
* Clarify scorepoints in Doppelganger so people understand better what they are scoring.
* Pre-reveal all rooms in In Your Atmosphere. Maybe a map scroll with associated script can be put in the entrance.
* Change equipment in Amplified Arena to be visible but with a Disappear command, so that they show up when viewing the room before entering it for the first time.

EDIT: Changes to Hostile Hotel Nuntar has attached in below post now added to compilation.

EDIT2: Now with hyperme's changes to Amplified Arena

EDIT3: Now with improved scrolls in Doppelganger.

Edit4: Now with fix and full-reveal map to In Your Atmosphere.

Repost of Hostile Hotel with changes for the compilation:

* Second Level 2W has mud babies instead of roaches, making the 1320 altar boost reachable
* Third Level 2W re-added (this was removed to meet the 15-room limit)
* The Lobby has an additional scorepoint for defeating the Rock Giant with zero damage (i.e. DEF including shield should be at least 500). I've amended the scroll to inform the player of this. (This scorepoint is obviously much easier to achieve with Third Level 2W re-added, but I have also tested it on the contest version.)

I'm okay with the change to make the equipment appear on the minimap. It's a good one.

On the topic of the equipment, please set things up so that the Wooden Sword is tragically destroyed after getting the Red Sword. Otherwise it might be possible to make the attack multiplier really high by swapping weapons a lot. This does get reset when you leave the room, but the sword room does have an attack gem in it.

For the record (and since I think at least one person said "please do this"), here is a list of all scorepoints in "Too Many Scorepoints", and how to get them:

Had I thought of it, I might have added a "wait around forever" scorepoint which awards on turn 5000 or so, but I think that particular trolling ship has sailed already. I don't really want to add more after the fact.

Hm. So as I've already mentioned in a PM to Kieran, I'm happy with the map revealing. I'd also like to change the turn 0 behaviour, but I'm not sure I get it. I've attached the hold file I've submitted to the contest. Can anyone else check that this actually works (i.e. doesn't do damage on turn 0)? I can't see a difference to the compilation version, though, in which it doesn't work. Is this some super weird engine bug?

There is a difference, in that hold the Ether Damage character has Imperative: Restart Script on Room Entrance while in the compilation it does not.

Do you want me to fix that on my end and also add a full-reveal map? Might be easier than having you do it if these are the only things that need to change.

Oh cool, missed that. Yeah, might be easier if you do it. Otherwise I think I'm happy with it.

Every participant has now seen this and the hold has been updated accordingly, so this has now been submitted to the HAs.
