I found good material - Ar itself :) It should be cheap, but once it came - it also should come to portal :)

Strange, that materials like "Metal bar" completely destroyed instead of bend and then brakes into peaces. And what about possibility to add materials outside level boundaries (in editor only)? If there was possible to make levels with not rectangle shape - it would be interesting also...for example AR in one rectangle, portal in another one, so there is a area where player can't add materials but through which AR should follow.

I post this level here not PM. It's a bug, but I think it's normal. Just too many objects on the level. But still funny.

Peter, I have some more suggestions for you.
You indicated you like keeping the original yellow dillo and blue portal as they are now (yellow dillo in any portal and any dillo in blue portal) but there have been misunderstandings about that in recent contests. For new players it will be even more confusing so I suggest to make that dillo and portal distinctly different (multicolor?) from the others.
Second one is the level browser. After some contests the list gets huuge. Is it possible to show only the levels in that list and once you click a level fold out the list of solutions?

Rob - good points, making the armadillo and portal multi-coloured would make it clearer and I'll make sure I do that. I'll try to make the level browser better like you suggest too.

Hi, Peter!
It would be remarkable, if there would be a viewing mode in which the trajectories of movement of a dillos would be drawn.

I haven't been on here forever but today I thought wonder what Peter Stock is up to..
I checked the AR wiki.. nothing
Came here and I was like OMG AR2 :shock:
But then I saw the nomenclature of "version 2" then I was like :(

That being said, I downloaded the V2 of it.. ... Seems to work fine :)

My dollars are waiting for AR2 tho Pete! Don't you want my money?! :p

Is it possible to copy my config and level solutions from AR1 to AR2?

Has "fast forward" implement in AR2? I see no difference in the look and feel of AR2 versus AR1. Is there any way to tell if AR2 is running (other than me opening AR2)?

The look is the same, the feel definately not. If you leftclick on "slow" in the bottom right corner you have slomotion, if you rightclick it you have fastforward. Try dropping a dillo on an anchored plate. In ar1 it will drop dead and in ar2 it will bounce depending on where you hit the plate.
In editor there are several (well hidden) features like changing price, gravity and number of dillo's. In the readme file this is explained.
I am sure that in future versions the look will change :D

ps you can play ar1 levels in ar2 but don't expect your old solutions to work. The dillo reacts different and it's much harder to create dark force.

Thanks...I'll go through all levels again which sounds like even more fun :) Started AR1 a couple days ago and am on level 47 already without using dark forces.

I didn't see Peter ask for suggestions, but I'll share mine anyway :D

A dillo that returns to its original position x times after being ported out of the level. This could create emphasis on solid and reusable, concepts rather than pixel perfect minimalistic solutions.

Alternately, but more unlikely, introducing a different RNG between instances, and computing a success percentage over tens or hundreds of runthroughs. I.E the simulation is not deterministic.
