Main Menu Question?

Post by bigdog » Thu Oct 07, 2004 2:21 pm

When I want to start a new game, I want to use the menu that shows all the trees, so I can see which maps I have beaten, and on what difficulty. I would like to beat them all as cleverly as i can.

How do i get back to this menu?

When you start Slay it should start on this screen.
When you finish a game it should return to this screen.
What screen are you seeing instead?

I see the screen of the last game I lost. A nice reminder of the defeat I suffered at the hand of the evil yellow empire......Yellow.

you should just be able to say start a new game and it will
bring up the main screen of all the islands you can play...
if you run..you'll only die tired

Na-ah. There isn't "main screen", when you press "New game" in PC-version. Instead game takes you right to "island options" screen with random island.
And if you want "Main screen" (Sean calls it "Hi-Score Table Screen" actually), you must _"Surrender"_. After that you'll can see what you want. :)

I got it.

Surrender was greyed out. BUt, if i start a new game, then hit surrender, I get to the "high scores" screen.

Thanks guys!

So, not only am i humiliated by losing to the evil Yellow, but I now have to start a new game, and surrender to them! This is really lowering my self esteem.

I'm a bit confused by this conversation! I just tried playing a game and won it and then another where I let a computer player win. Both times I got a dialog box telling me who had won and when I clicked OK I was returned to the "high score table" of trees.

I can't understand previous (not my) message (maybe bigdog catch some bug?), but _I_ talk about "missing" button for quick access to "High Score" screen, except "Surrender". We already talked about this, no? Look to my profile. :)

I only have a minute, and will check back again on monday, but slay is working fine now.

I was stuck in a rut where I would click on OK after losing, and it would not take me back to taht menu. It would just leave me on the map.

I will look into it on monday. Possibly sunday.

Hopefully I can clear this up. Have a great weekend everyone.

Can't repeat it

Post by bigdog » Wed Oct 13, 2004 12:06 am

Well, I tried and tried (and enjoyed every minute of it), but i could not replicate the situation where it didn't take me back to the high scores screen. It could have something to do with going from multiplayer to single player, or possibly from finishing 2nd. I am unsure, nave have not been able to do it again.

I was stuck though! I am not crazy! Well, not much anyway.
