I've mentioned the mining thing in the comments to the reddit section, and the dev is talking about some access fixes  to remove or replace the ascii art, which is awesome news.
As far as I know yes you can reload after getting a room, i'll try next time I reach a town, however once you die whether you save or not it's permadeath.

Some of the towns are quite massive, and only a few of the number options are  displayed onscreen  at a time.  This is the only real problem I'm  having so far ,   But I guess if I listen closely, I should be able to find the buildings I want

You can always scroll the window back up again either with the middle mouse wheel or a convenient emulation (supernova can do it in   dolphin curser with w).

I would also recommend setting the full screen option, sinse for me at least this produced better columnization of the text.

Any thoughts on mining? sinse thus far while I get the press space to mine and esc to stop, I'm not sure how you choose what you mine.

Okay, the good news is I think I dig how mines work now (ha ha),each  mine just gives one sort of ore from what I gather and you need to find the one that gives the best, whether you can cart lesss prophetable stuff from town to town  I don't know, indeed given that all you need to do to mine is hammer space like a demon it seems super grinderlicious, or at least it would if towns were a little more common than they seem to be.

The bad news is, either I've missed something or saving doesn't work.

I read earlier that saving isn't implemented in the game yet, apparently the developer is waiting until other systems are added   Or something .

Hi Dark,
no no, you dont have to hammering space all the time. I think every mining needs 3 or 4 seconds. Thats why i said sounds would make it a little bitmore clear for us what and when to do.
Looking forward to save my game so i can try to raise up my first character for a little longer. I realy like the fact that materials have different prices in different towns. I also hope that there will be something like a traveling option to visit allready explored towns.

I think there is more to be done with towns later, like you being able to own buildings etc, but it's not implemented yet, (you can throw money at buildings but it doesn't unfortunately do much).
With the mine, it actually seems hammering space works remarkably well, I made over 100 K gold by finding a place that bought diamonds for 95 each and then using that to buy the best pickaxe and double xp from mining, I also got from character level 10 to 12 out of it.
Actually that game rocked! i was lucky enough to get some early mutations and then used them to go through a lot of things, unfortunately I fell foul of the repeating titan bug, and just finished up committing suicide.
Still, here is my graveyard just for awesome factor, though note it lists the version as 7.1 rather than 7.2, and also doesn't know the difference between boys and girls:

jenny dethon travelled through 175 places in the wasteland, he died at level 12 and the last thing he saw was a Sickly WormFlea Titan in the region known as Rockydirt Valley

jenny dethon travelled through Great Rockying Desert into the small stretched waste of Philip's Crater, from there he passed into the small stretched waste of Dovetor Settlement Crater, from there he passed into the expansive wastes of Rockydirt Valley Where his journey ended.

For anyone grinding in mining for minutes on end to gain quick levels, that's going to be removed in the long run once the towns get focused on more.  Mining will be subjected to random events and mine picks will need to be replaced.  So yes, you can hilarious die from smashing space bar like a demon in the future.

  Huh, I never noted the titan bug, I normally just get sme events before another one decides to jump at me so there's a chance for the level to go down.

I suspected random events etc would be coming for mining, I just hope by the point those happen the text involved will be a bit more readable sinse it seems to scroll past at ridiculous speed, actually I don't really get why mining isn't turn based, but we'll see how that goes.

As to the titan loop, I don't know if it only occurs with packs of titans, with the game generating a different type of titan for you to fight rather than decreasing the number of titans in the initial pack when you kill one. However along with the brown mountain monk loop which also is a bit crazy, it's on the bug fix list for the next set of uptdates, which we should actually see in the next few hours if the dev is true to schedule big_smile.

I really want to play this game, but attempting to download it through mediafire through up a number of roadblocks that I couldn't get past.

The first was an unfriendly CAPTCHA, it offered and audio option, but all that did was send me to the same page with an audio captcha that had a link to a video puzzle. It also opened another window full of advertizing and with no content. The page of advertizing could easily be closed, but the audio puzzle was never played, so there is no way for a blind or visually impaired person to solve the captcha.

Hi.
The game sounds interesting, but the fact that the developer doesn't step in and answer some questions makes me wait a bit longer to give the game a try. Is it an online or offline game? How do you get notified when there's a new update?

Best regards SLJ.
If you like the post, then please give it a thumps up.
Feel free to contact me privately if you have something in mind. If you do so, then please send me a mail instead of using the private message on the forum, since I don't check those very often.
Happy gaming... :D

@Gene, downloading the game should present no problem. Go to the link labeled "download latest build" that will redirect you to a page on the file storage site "mediafire" where the latest build, currently 7.3 is. There are lots of links and what not, but I just searched for the text that said "Download" and downloaded the file, indeed I've done it four times now with successive versions so I can definitely say it works, and no, if there was a capture required I wouldn't be recommending the game either.

Reddit is the forum system the dev is using to promote the game, advertise changes etc, (well it's sort of like a forum but a bit weerder). Reddit itself has a capture system for creating new threads, though it seems to go away once you register an account, which doesn't require a capture (crazy).

As to the developer, well I can't blaim him (I presume it's a him), for hanging out over on reddit and just banging out announcements, the speed of development is scary! and if you can tangle with the reddit system he's quite prepared to discuss suggestions etc, both access related and otherwise, ---- alternatively, just grab the game and have some fun with it, really if it wasn't possible to download easily I'd not have made a news item.

I don't know where you are ending up, but, here are the results of my just completed attempts to download this game.

Using my browser history, I went straight to the game's mediafire page and found a link that said something like "Download (74MB)", so I clicked it, I ended up on a page full of nothing but advertizements.

So I went to the game's reddit page, clicked the link to download the latest build and again ended up on mediafire, this time it wouldn't let me download the game unless I took a survey.

Hmmm, this is very weerd, though might I suggest Gene that  instead of throwing a   hissyfit you talk calmly about the problem and we try and find a way of fixing it.
For example, here is a  direct download link to the file:
http://download850.mediafire.com/5rq2kh … +0.7.3.zip

Let me know if that works.

As I said, I've not experienced any of these problems in ie, I wonder if it's your browser. I'll admit as file hosting services go, mediafire  is not my favourite, but  there are far better responses and better ways of expressing frustration, indeed were I the game's developer and got a response like the above I'd probably dismiss the blind community, and this forum as a load of stroppy children and  be less, rather than more inclined to be helpful, particularly sinse as I said the problem seems to be with the file hosting service not the game itself, and as far as the game goes, the developer seems like a very decent chap.

Hello!
Yeah, Dark is wright. I know i was the first who complaint a little on saturday, but it had nothing to do with the developer of this interesting project.
I am sure we can find a way to fix this strange download-problem. If you want, i could upload the next updates to my dropbox. Or we could ask the developer if he could change maybe something of the downloadoptions.
Realy, this is absolutely no reason for serious angry complaints.
Hey dark! I tryed your link and got the some puzzle-stuff. So i think this way is not ocompletely accessible.

Hmmm, most odd firefly, when I hit the above download link, I get a download file window open. What browser are people using? With ie it seems to be fine, but I wonder if mediafire is doing odd things in Firefox or whatever.

I don't think though there is any need to hassle the developer about this or to start recommending he change download alternatives until we've actually worked out what the problem is, plus of course it's easy enough to just pass the file along (I could just bang it up on sendspace myself).

Btw, if you go to the wastes subredit, there is  a link to a youtube trailer for a game called "war sim" which the developer of the wastes  worked on previously. It uses some of the same ideas, but is a strategic turn based kingdom management and battle affair, rather than a postt appocalyptic rpg.

I don't think it's being worked on anymore, but it's worth a try, especially for people who like that sort of thing.

it's the advertisement that keeps popping up when you download from mediafire. i've encounterred it all the time, but manage to solve both capcha and the adds. @Gene, you went to the right link, but yougot stuck on the ads page. What you should do is hit control+w to get out of the ads, and then alt+n, the download should be there.

Mmm, gene, the adds aren't anything to do with the developer, they're the fault of mediafire, the file hosting service he's putting the beta file on, so might I suggest you direct your bile in the correct direction.
I'm fairly sure there is a solution to this, whether someone mirroring the file on a more accessible host or finding a way around the adds, but if your not interested in solving the problem there isn't much else to say.

Btw, the developer is now discussing the ascii art free version, which will be great and save a lot of hitting down arrow for no reason, (and all the more reason I'd rather people didn't accuse him of mediafire's inequities). ACtually to say how much is in the game is unfinished, I'm really excited to see where this one goes.

[wow], good going.
I'd be interested to know what your perks were, sinse I'm guessing you put a few points into "mad skills" to have the extra skill points to spend on raising your skills.

Looking at your amount of gold (and  the weapon which I'm guessing came from the elite shop), I've got a nasty suspicion that grind mining was in there somewhere sinse  I don't think it's even possible to get that sort of money otherwise at the moment, although apparently there is a huge settlement update on the horizon that will not only make mining nastier but also make towns much more fun as they're sort of a sketch currently.

Stil very nice, you might want to  mention about the sand storms to the dev though.
