    Overall the game has gotten pretty solid, but there are still a few issues that may come up. Please post anything you find here in this thread and theno will get them ironed out.

    Known bugs:
    - "play" mode draws to slow / fast at times. [FIXED?]
    -Toggle grid does not work Fixed
    -Clicking 'Etch Box forums' does not redirect you do the forum page Goose said he fixed the redirect too
    -submit error handling

    Not so much of a bug, but other draw-replay (speed painting) programs usually work 10 times faster than how the artist drew it. Maybe this would be more fun to watch if it was sped up? And not be boring watching them work 30 minutes on a drawing, if they did.

    yeah what happened? It's like drawing in almost real time now, and the knobs don't spin at all now.

    the knobs are a work in progress, still working on trying to get them to spin at the correct times

    as for the speed, currently working on an adjustable slider so you can change the value.

    Less of a bug but I just think the TrackMill watermark should be more visible. Kindda tough to see. But dude, good work. Annndd uhhhh the forum notification link is kindda broken hahaha.

    The starting etching speed in play mode is a liitle too fast. It should start off at a slower speed setting.

    a bit to blurry? we added a bit of a blur to add the effect of a real etchasketch

    this is probably related to the above bug, but sometimes levels are submitted twice. I will fix it serverside (so you can only submit 1 every 5 min) but it should also be fixed inside the game.

    I clicked once and it submitted twice, most likely not a bug, but I think it's worth a checkout.


    Also, the creator thing added something to my thing :eek:

    I don't understand...what's that slider thingy for? When I slide it around nothing happens...

    goose hmm... Administrator Staff Member Admin

    the slider should change the speed of the animation. it does for me.

    Oh ok. I thought it was supposed to do something after the transition was over. It'd be cool though if you pull the slider all the way to the left, and the etch is blank. And as you pull it to the right, it appears like the transition does. If you know what I mean. So you could kind of take time and see how they made it and go back if you want to.

    yeah a rewind feature would be pretty cool.

    Or even just a restart button instead of reloading the page.
