|3/14/2005 4:15:03 AM - Pipeline V1.250-0 Released - Big Changes!|
Pipeline V1.250-0 is now available. This version incorporates a number of significant changes.
The largest change concerns the points required to pass a level. The old game (versions prior to V1.250-0) would never require more than 30,000 points to pass a level. The new version removes that limit. Every level will require more points to qualify than the previous one. Claiming a top spot on the high score list will no longer require playing the game for several months...only that you are very good.
Scores submitted with old versions of the game are still logged and displayed, but you'll have to click a button on the high score page to take you to the old scores. The default pages ONLY display scores submitted with V1.250-0 or later.
Five new hand-crafted maps have been added. Including the 25 bonus levels, the game now features 90 of these maps, and the random map generator will take over when you've exhausted those.
The sound and music systems have been completely rewritten. The sound quality has improved and the download size has decreased because of these changes.
Registered users will now see a "Check for Updates" button on the main menu. Pressing this button will instantly tell you if you have the latest version.
A much nicer main menu background has been added to the game.
Various small tweaks and changes have been made, including a bug fix.
If you have a previous version of the game, you will have to uninstall it before installing this new version. Please note that your saved game and high scores will be lost during this process, so please finish your game and publish your high scores to the Internet before installing the new version.
If you have any questions, please send us an email. We're always interested in hearing from our players. Have fun!
