QuoteThe Gaira quest doesn't seem to be triggering.
Any more specifics? What were you doing where you expected it to trigger? Any errors?

The other error has been corrected recently, but it was done after 1.3 was released. I'll try to put up a 1.3.1 bug fix release soon.

So in other words everything works except for the actual overlay that makes it look like night? What version of BoM are you playing?

Hmm... Interesting. All of the bed use the same script to change the time of day - have you had issues at any of the other beds?

As for the error, it's actually legitimate (although unrelated to this) and I've added that dialog in :)

For dungeon 4, I'm almost certain that it's possible to push that block against a wall or other surface to re-align it so it will work for the puzzle.

Hi Maximini, I'm sorry to hear that. Do you have any more information so I can try and track down the bug? An error.txt file would be best. Also, have you tried to close the game and re-open your save?

I'm not sure where the error.txt file would be on a Mac. Probably in the same directory as the quest? Wherever that is?
Honestly the quest system is pretty new, so there could definitely be some bugs. If you can find your save file and and error.txt file, I'm sure I can do some fixes. As for the Master Ore, the upgraded sword is the object of the quest, so it should be complete.

There is no walkthrough currently. Honestly I'm not super motivated to make one, but if someone in the community would like to take it on, I'd be happy to provide input :) There is some limited info on the game's website at

I believe both of the things you seek are in the Lost Woods in the east (not really marked on the map, but shrouded in clouds).
Yes, save files are stored as plain text. If you're on Windows they can be found in c:\Users\<username\.solarus\<game>\save<number>.dat. So with Book of Mudora, if you need to edit the first save file, it would be \.solarus\zbom\save1.dat

You'll need to know what exact variable to edit, and at least in my case I didn't name them with descriptive names, so if you need more details feel free to PM me.

Thank you - glad you're enjoying it!

For the bottle side quest, was there an error.txt file generated? Also, could you send me your save file? This shouldn't have an effect on the game in general - if you were able to get the bottle, that's the only purpose this side quest serves.

As far as the trading sequence - there is more than one forest :) PM me if you want the spoiler version.

Concerning the Lakebed Lair temple, you should be able to get to the boss and beat the temple still, right? If that's the case then do so, and if you re-enter the dungeon an NPC will give you the extra key.
I would work on blending your styles some. The difference between the LttP style and the other is quite jarring. Otherwise I really like the layout of your maps - good work!
That's what I was thinking too, I was just hoping someone else would give it a try before I called fowl :)
Yes, MetalZelda, I don't want it to scale at all. I want to set the window size and that's what's shown. llamazing, that doesn't appear to work for sizes any bigger than 640x480 - no matter what size I set the window to, I see the same content.
Ok, I think I'm asking the wrong question. I can set the window size correctly with that call, but it basically scales the same viewport up or down to fit the window size. If I have a bigger window size, I want a bigger viewport as well- is this possible? For example, setting the window size at 320x240 works - but when I set the window to 640x480 instead, I want to see twice as many tiles not the same tiles at twice the size.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it seems to scale for me no matter what I set the window size at. If I compare the game window to the editor map window at 100% zoom, I would expect them to look the same - but they don't and the game window is zoomed in compared to the editor.
It appears, and the API confirms, that the "normal" video mode actually stretches the image by a factor of 2. Is it possible to just have the game run un-stretched? If there's not currently, I really think this should be added as a feature soon. Currently it would be pretty much impossible to use higher resolution resources when making games.

Hmm... i like the randomness idea, thanks! I've already tried to diversify my enemies, but will definitely continue that.
Development / Enemies not piling up
May 26, 2017, 02:36:48 AM
In my game my enemies have a bad habit of "piling up" on each other, which makes it much easier to kill several of them with one hit. I was trying to avoid this with the code below, but I've now traced the code to some random crashes I've been having, so I need to take it out. I'd still like to find a way to not have the enemies pile up, and my guess is this was a stupid way in the first place and there's some obvious answer I've missed. So, my hope is the community can save me from my own stupidity again :)

Code ("lua") Select
function enemy:on_collision_enemy(other_enemy, other_sprite, my_sprite)
  if enemy:is_traversable() then
    sol.timer.start(200, function() enemy:set_traversable(true) end)
