I (didn't) fix medals

Posted by ImminentDeath - April 24th, 2020


I just released a small update for Darkhouse with a couple of quality improvements that I had just recently figured out because they were bothering me. One of them was how to bind multiple keys to the same control, so you don’t have to choose a control scheme anymore, you can just use whichever keys you want.

Another thing I changed is the in-game notification you get when you unlock an achievement. I removed the sound effect that plays when they’re unlocked, and I removed the notification entirely during some of the ending scenes, just because I thought they might be distracting.

Lastly, I finally fixed medals! I’m sorry it took this long for me to figure it out. I thought they were broken forever until I found a Stencyl extension that adds new code blocks, and now the medals should be unlocked along with the in-game achievements. The medal won’t unlock immediately but it should show up on your profile and under the game if you reload the page. I also unlocked a medal myself to test and see if it works, but I can’t seem to remove it, so I guess I’m stuck with it.

There’s just one other problem, though. It looks like any save data from previous versions of Darkhouse didn’t carry over. That means if you unlocked any achievements in-game, they probably aren’t unlocked anymore. Apparently this is a problem with HTML5 games on Newgrounds, and I don’t think I can fix it. I don’t know how many of you unlocked achievements after Darkhouse became HTML5 (which was when medals broke), but I’m terribly sorry if you did because they’re probably gone now. At least now that medals work, they won’t disappear with an update.

There won’t likely be another update to version 0, either. These were just some issues that were really bothering me. One problem always seems to replace another, I guess. I’m just really glad medals are working again, and I feel bad no one could unlock them for the past eight months. So if you want, go play through Darkhouse again and earn some points, especially if you should have earned them already.

And as always, report all bugs.

(Actually it's quite probable that medals still aren't working correctly. At this point I'm not going to try and fix them again because they'll never work, nor will I add them to new games.)
