Tidalis Bug?
« on: March 22, 2011, 10:18:38 PM »
The objective for level 42 of adventure mode, entitled "double trouble" reads: 0 of 1 line clear missing  LOCALIZATION: Levelobjective_ofBeforeEqualityLevelObjective_OfBeforeEquality >=2 lines.

I assume this is a bug because I have no idea what this level objective means, nor can I seem to clear the stage by clearing lines.

Well clearly it means that you gotta keep your (or get your) Levelobjective_ofBeforeEqualityLevelObjective_OfBeforeEquality greater than or equal to 2. I don't see what so hard about that.  :P


In seriousness, it looks like either a simple typo in the identifier for the externalized string its trying to get, or there is a missing entry in the localization table. In either case, it seems simple to fix. But a dev would have to tell you what the string was supposed to be pointed to.

Then back I go to Tidalis to get my LevelObjective_OfBeforeEqualityLevelObjective_OfBeforeEquality greater than or equal to 2!

Seriously though, does anyone know how to get past this level?  The description in the adventure map text says "make 1 line clear of >= 2 lines."  Does that just mean that you need to make 2 lines that intersect somewhere clear simultaneously?

That stage uses line clear mode, which is described in-game (and I figure you know how it works, since level 38 is also line clear mode), so I'll refrain from explaining the basics. Now, unlike the previous level, which simply wanted you to clear 3 lines total, this one is asking you to clear 2 or more lines simultaneously (which yields more points in this mode). Theoretically, you could clear every line on the screen simultaneously, but I was never that cruel anywhere in the adventure mode. :)

Edit: To clarify, this is easier than it sounds because lines don't clear until your combo is over, so the lines don't have to be formed by the same CHAIN, but rather can be formed by the same combo.

Good luck!
