Cant use Power ups in Network co-up
« on: October 23, 2010, 03:17:35 PM »
Hi.
I have downloaded the trial version of Tidalis to both Mac and PC. Me and my girlfriend are playing it at a LAN but somehow we can't seem to use power ups? i find that kinda wierd as we can pick them up, so i guess it's not some kinda restriction (for a trial-version). Also when playing 2 players on same PC / Mac, we can use the power-ups.

Anyone have this problem? or am i just stupid :P ? thanks in advance

Greetings Needo

Is there an in-game update waiting there?  I'm pretty sure this was fixed in Tidalis 1.005, but the demo installer might still be 1.000.  Thanks!

I actually have 1.007 (trial version) update. So i dont know... But does it is work in the full version? couse then i might aswell buy the full version. Just to be sure that I'm just not doing it wrong; When taking a power up in a network game, i should be able to scroll over to the other side and use it on my partners well ("screen")?

The full version is identical to the demo version in things such as that -- it sounds like you may have encountered a bug, I'm not sure.  We haven't seen that in the later versions, but it might be something we need to investigate next week.  You should be able to use items on your partner's well, depending on the item at least.
