Ok, worked on the error function.
The diabolos should mess up in both directions now, not just right!

when you are playing the 3 diabolo version of the game are you meant to be able to do 2d suns?

After a few minutes of practice my 3 diabolo siteswaps surpassed my real life ability. I give up. :)

You've got quite an adictive game. I find myself sitting there repeatedly trying to nail hard siteswaps.

i have found one small minor problem - if you do 3d and do a normal throw to start with. Then a 2d sun then leave it on normal throw 2 are thrown at the same time and cant be caught .
   it only happens some times i dont know why

The game lets you get away with all sorts of naughty behavior when you are throwing low. I could cancel that, but I think it gives you a bit more flexability.
 But when you throw higher than that, you've got to make clean catches.

There used to be a way to do 3 low using the 2 key, but I can't get it started anymore. Anybody else tried it?

Thanks a lot for playtesting folks! I think we're almost done.

 I still want to add the Tony Hawk-style challenges though. Such as "Impress Priam - turn a 531 into a 642."

Any suggestions?

nice work, the high score list is great, i reckon 10.000 points is definately possible

might be a long shot but for the 'RPG style' game you have to earn the third diabolo by doing good with 2d, and you start off by only being able to do lower siteswaps and have to 'learn' new tricks as you progress, or spend points on them.

You're right the 3 low thing is gone.
I will try to find another way.

maybe you didn't set your name before you got the high score? i've done it a couple of tiem so sean has scores courtesy of me.

It should be changed really so that if you do not set your own name you cannot be added to the high score board, because at the moment, sean, the default name is getting scores from other people.

btw congrats sean for the top score, very good

hey just a request

could u delete my 70000 point score of the high score list

because every siteswap i jus did was worth like twice as many points so its not really fair if my 70000 one stays up

but my other scores were normal

I don't see why you're 70,000 points isn't valid, esp. since this is the beta version.
Please explain exactly how you got it and perhaps we can decide whther that should be legal or not.

Well i was playing it for ages. Then i started again with 2d and i was just doing normal throws and the score would go up a thousand in a few seconds. It wouldnt stop like it ussually does if you do the same throw over and over .

so  i just went to a different window and did something else for a minute

so i dont really think its fair

Well, I've tried to recreate that, but can't get it to happen. I think I may know how to code for it though.  Good job finding a loophole, Squiggle, that's what playtesting is all about.

Let's leave the score up there, maybe someone will find a way to beat it.

Sadly that person won't be me, I can't get on the list at all!

got an idea: it's kinda popular to add some slow-motion (a.k.a. Bullet-Time) to action, rpg,... games. what about adding slow-mo to Man's Chew? I mean if someone is good he should get some 'energy' and then use it (i.e. for slow-mo).
