A Miner Adventure
Use a pick-ax and bombs to dig tunnels and build scaffolding to traverse the caves. Be careful, you'll never know what kind of danger you'll find!

Ok, there was a problem in the code that was causing it to not be awarded. I manually gave you the medal.

Or, maybe because $15,000 was too easy to get I'll take the medal away and raise it to $50,000 =)

I started going for $50,000 because you said this but my mind's starting to go numb. :'( Hopefully 30 grand will do!

It's not The Price is Right, I'd have given you credit even if you went over $30,000 :-)

I won't be able to award these medals until later today (5-6 hours from now at least), but they're on the way.
Also, one more thing, but it's small and I don't know if you'd care but better safe than sorry.

There's a small oversight in Adventure mode in which you can skip the scaffolding kit at the start of the game, proceed to the first key fragment (using some timed bomb-jumping along the way), double back after the lava and retrieve the scaffolding so that you don't lose it as intended.

And even though they're indestructible, the invincible blue walls can still trigger cave-ins should you hit them with a bomb. This let me safely carry Scaffers to the computer terminal across the final lava pit by "creating" a dirt floor over the lava.

Edit: Then again, it'd be easier to just bomb the blue walls around the first fragment to collapse the tunnel below you for another platform. Adjusting the spot such that you're -required- to submerge in lava might do the trick, too.
Then again, it'd be easier to just...

It sounds like it would be easier to play through as intended, but I do like clever things like this as long as it doesn't trivialize the game - with the bomb jumping and doubling back it sounds more difficult. It's also the kind of thing you wouldn't think to do your first time playing. I should add a medal for completing adventure mode without getting the scaffolding kit.

I'm planning on adding more chapters to the adventure and I'd like for them to be less linear. Hopefully I can work in some things like this and have them be intentional. It'd really help the replay value.
If you're experiencing unresponsive keyboard input, I have good news. This was due to a BYOND bug which should be fixed in the next BYOND update. For now, you can open the options menu (F2) and lower the game speed.

Sure. I'll award you the medal as soon as I get the chance.
Awesome! Thanks! :D

If you click on "Multiplayer" at the main menu the game will be hosted for others to join. Here's some more info about hosting games.

is their a cheat for this game caveins r really annoying when u dig a shaft

I'm trying to find some ways to make cave-ins less frequent but more damaging for certain game modes. They'll always be annoying, but hopefully in future versions they'll be annoying in a fun way.

Most of my inspiration has come from other mining games (VGA Miner) or platformers (like Metroid), but I guess that every mining game will be compared to Minecraft.
a bug is making me logout with out doing anything can u fix it i can't play this with this happending

Are you trying to connect to another server or are you running the game on your computer? If you're running it on your computer, does the problem happen every time you run the game? Even after you restart it?
I can't always jump on the scaffolding I build, in fact its most of the time that I can't. Any reason why?

I also slide a lot when on the first medal blocks that lead to the elevator. I slide enough that I couldn't get on the elevator at all and had to close the game.
Sounds like you're experiencing this BYOND bug. It should be fixed in the next BYOND update but I'm not sure when that'll be.
Excellent game, keep up the good work.
Forum, you said Stop playing with annoying ppl, but you forget the fact that: Almost NO servers are on. It's even rare to see a server with atleast 4 ppl in 1 month.... We are like dogs that are hungry for a bone... Or should I say, we are A Miner Adventure likers that are hungry for an 24/7 server. Back to the problem that I had, what is the point of leaving your favorite game cuz of trolls/noobs, if you can't do anything else after it? He also had banned me also... Pathetic... But anyway.. This game is dieing. Before you add updates, you should do something about the popularity.
Supertoby, there's not much I can do about either issue. If you don't like playing with the people who choose to host games, you can download the game and play by yourself or host it and play with your friends. It's not the kind of game that needs 100 people to be fun, just 3 or 4 will do.

I'd like the game to be more popular too, but there's not a whole lot I can do about that.
