P.S. Mac version is still uploading, and will be available very soon :) .. mac build availble, see download page :D

Making a hat is dead easy.
If there's no animation, is literally just copying the hat a few times at regular intervals.

Trivial in GIMP, Photoshop, Inkscape...

And yes, the main issue is making it look nice on the hedgehog, not creating the hat.

Not even that, if you use the template svg i posted on the hats thread you just need to draw it once, then its automatically cloned Wink Smiley

@Magik_18l & Palewolf
Thanks a lot

Thanks for the junior's propeller hat, just what I wanted.

Will donate again A++++

how much days take getdeb before updating version?

it's still 0.9.12 >.<

I actually wrote to the guys at PlayDeb, because they had 0.9.13 up, but only available for Ubuntu 10.04 (which is still unreleased). As it turns out, they do not plan to release 0.9.13 for any versions of Ubuntu lower than 10.04, so you can either run a beta version of Lucid Lynx, build hw 0.9.13 from source, or find another way to enjoy the game. From the reply I received:


Hello [redacted],
we have a very short team, right now we are 2 persons packaging & testing on our spare time. Ubuntu 10.04 is an important release so we want to make sure we will have all the current packages tested/available on it's release day. This is not our regular policy, we usually support both current an past version (adopting the release candidate as the current), however we believe that this time we will benefit more users with this effort even if we do sacrifice the updates for the current user base.

Thanks for your understanding.


Hey I am having a problem with new version.

everything runs smoothly and everything but

when I close the game, it turns my monitor resolution to 640x380.

It was originally 1024x600

I am using dell inspiron mini 10v and using ubuntu 10.04 desktop version.
