I am trying to get the tweezers from the moat but Dizzy won't swim down that far? I am holding two heavy rocks and the snorkle?

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? :v2_dizzy_confused2:

it doesn't matter how many rocks you have. the issue is that you have to swim to one side. he doesn't swim straight up.


oh and Miller, it depends where the level of the water is. if it's the lower level, try downloading the latest version. if there's still a problem, let me know. there was a similar problem with an earlier version. however i think you've probably still got the water level at the high point.

ian, this game is my 6th, after a year of using DizzyAGE. however you should be able to create something with the complexity of Diamond Mine Dizzy relatively easily.

did i mention DMD will be getting a large update and re-release soon, to update it to DizzyAGE v2.1? :)

Thanks TF.

I am stuck! I've turned the moat purple and have loads of items :v2_dizzy_eek: but I don't know how to get the water level down or through the trap door. :hitwall:

Any hints, tips or tricks from anyone would be much appreciated. :v2_dizzy_cry:

I know but it's finding the time to learn the code properly and then implementing it. Hopefully one day. Cheers for the encouragement though!

I haven't played DMD yet - is it worth me waiting for the re-release?

ermmm well the rerelease will have 2 versions, the 'classic' version and the updated version. you'll be able to switch between them, altho not mid-game.

there will not be any new puzzles, the only(!) differences will be the music, sound FX, and a general sprucing up of the graphics.

the only difference between the 'classic' mode in v2 and the version currently available will be that the v2 'classic' mode will have the newer lifebar sound FX, rather than the one currently in DMD.

so it's up to you whether you want to wait or not. :) altho i will need to wait for alex to release v2.2 of DizzyAGE, as there is a bug preventing me from swapping maps in v2.1

When ive used the large egg item I cant now get across the reservoir, even though I not carrying any rocks I keep sinking down in the water...is this suppose to happen ? The log I stepped off away from the edge and is impossible to jump onto, but wouldnt matter normally when you was snorkling without carrying any rocks but now I just sinking when not carrying any ?

ooo i think there might be a bug there... i'll have to go and have a look at the code. if i'm right, you won't sink down all the way with no rocks, just about halfway. correct?

you can still get across, swim up using the jump button.
