This may be a bug. Every time I hit one of the poles to stop the spinning arrows it stops the arrows pointing downward - left, no matter what direction it was pointing at the time of hitting the pole. I'm playing on Dink smallwood HD v1.90

Could you also post a link to the save game (or send it to me in an email)? I (or maybe Seth) can try to take a look into fixing it.

I fixed this in the DinkHD source code, hopefully it can make it into another release soon.

Please try out this integration build: http://redrecondite.com/dinkhd/dink-2018-06-05-sp_frame-fix.zip.

The problem was that DinkHD would interpret sp_frame(x, -1) as sp_frame(x, 1), preventing the puzzle from working. Seth recently changed sp_frame to validate the frame number (to fix a crash issue I found with Initiation), and accidentally broke support for getting a frame in the process.

Sorry about missing that the first time, liquid141.

It sounds like there's going to be a patch released for most (all?) platforms within a few days that should fix this issue, amongst other things.

Hey liquid141,

Dink HD V1.91 has been released with the fix for this for OSX, Android & Windows today.

It should bug you to update the next time you run Dink HD.
