Title: Please Help-Rain Dance
Post by: aidamei on 2011-12-27 01:25:44
Please help

Lightning Dance

This is something that is so disturbing to me....For someone to absolutely ruin what was one of the best games I have played in years with rubbish like this.

I'm sorry I can't understand the mindset.

To just throw a cheap arcade-shooter-like mini game into this classic of a game is ridiculous and on top of that make it a required "puzzle"

Well, I can't do it.


After 50 tries I can't do it.

Is there anyone who can send me a saved game right after this mess?


It is the press the keyboard keys (RainDance)



I can send someone my saved game or maybe someone can send me theirs?

Thank U so much!

Hi aidamei,

I can understand your frustration about being stuck at the dancing game. I'm sure that someone will help you soon, but please be patient and don't post the same question multiple times.
I'm on holiday and don't have access to the game, so I can't make a savegame myself right now.

If you can wait a few days I will send you a savegame as soon as I'm back in the office. If you don't want to wait, maybe you could ask someone in a big adventure game forum like www.adventuregamers.com.

Hello,
you can perhaps send me the saved game after succesfull raindance also. I have the same problem, I'm old adventure gamer and not to used this kind of keyboard tricks anymore.
Great game, but this one... grrrr...

Hi

Open "Book of Unwritten Tales\kagedata\chapter4_1\landschaft\minigame_dance.kad" in a text editor ( take a backup before that)

At the bottom change all the timetowait parts in
Code: [Select]
<step arrwos="? ?" timeToWait="1.4" right_event=""/> to 2.4 or higher. This increases the delay between each dance step.

If you just want to get the minigame over with, delete all steps exept:
Code: [Select]
                     
<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="2.4" right_event="mitte" wrong_event=""/>
<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="2.7" right_event="ende" wrong_event=""/>

The play the game and perform the rain dance.

Thanks Jens,
I almost got it.

Would you again tell me, what all  steps to delete passing the whole thing. Got the lightning, oops, game stucked again.

Code: [Select]
<sequence timeToWait="1.0">
<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="2.4" right_event=""/>
<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="2.4" right_event="mitte" wrong_event=""/>
<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="2.7" right_event="ende" wrong_event=""/>
<step arrwos="4 2" timeToWait="2.4" right_event=""/>
</sequence>

But when you get the lightning, the game should continue

Thanks again Jens,
I tried again your previous instructions more carefully and succeeded passing the rain dance. Great relief! All worked just as you said.

Now I have a working rain dance passing "minigame_dance.kad". If someone needs that, it is possible to send it, but copyright belongs of course to Jens.

Ask him first!
Best Regards for all.

THANK you for the tip, Jens! My brain/finger connection isn't swift enough and I was getting downright frustrated! I tried slowing it down, but still had a problem so did your second suggestion.  Two steps then sat back and enjoyed the dance.  Thanks again!

Just joined to say mucho thanks to Jen for rain dance tip.  Rather than skip the dance altogether I set all entries to

<step arrwos="1 2" timeToWait="1.4" right_event=""/>

then just hit left & right cursor keys each time.

(Why they had to include this amazingly irritating nonsence in an otherwise brill game beats me - hope there aint no more!)

I can not get past the Rain Dance either.  Just not good enough hand/eye coordination...  When I try the solution given about opening with editor and changing the lines - well, I can change the lines, but I can't save it into a KAD form.  It will put the save changes into a text and then I have a text file, not a KAD file.

Help.  ??

Post by: TheLuggage on 2012-08-15 20:46:03
Okay, retried this, this afternoon, saw I hadn't "shown hidden extensions", did that, erased the ".txt" and am now past the dance.

Thanks to the people who put this solution up originally!

Hi Peter,

you can send me the latest savegame (.ksg-file) or all of them and I could play the rain dance for you and send you a new savegame after that. Unfortunately I'm not in the office for the next week, so you'd have to wait a while till you can continue playing.

As an alternative you could follow the instructions from an earlier message in this thread (http://forum.kingart-games.com/index.php/topic,737.msg1569.html#msg1569) to make the rain dance easier or skip it completely. Even if the file "minigame_dance.kad" is not in the same location on Mac, you should be able to locate the file with the search function in the folder system.

I hope that helps you.

Kind regards,
Marco

Hello

I have to say that The Book of Unwritten Tales is a great "Adventure" and I hope that more titles like this are produced.

Unfortunately Old White crippled Storytellers (like Me) don't dance well at all and are highly uncool-orientated so I also am stuck at the Lightning Dance.

As I'm playing on Steam the file you refer to ( Book of Unwritten Tales\kagedata\chapter4_1\landschaft\minigame_dance.kad ) is not on my machine or I'd nudge up that time element a bit.

So I've restarted the game - purchased a copy of the game (dvd-cd) from Amazon and wait patiently for it to arrive to see if the files will then be installed on the infernal machine.

Keep up the good work.   (mumble mumble mumble)

I know I left that scroll I was working on somewhere around here!

Oh,  Aldo says hello.

Just Me,
Hakiem

But when you get the lightning, the game should continue

Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you.  I was getting really frustrated with this portion of the game.

As I'm playing on Steam the file you refer to ( Book of Unwritten Tales\kagedata\chapter4_1\landschaft\minigame_dance.kad ) is not on my machine or I'd nudge up that time element a bit.

Yes, it is.  It's located under Steam\Steamapps\common\The Book of Unwritten Tales\etc..\etc..
