Losing Control of Seedlings
« on: July 26, 2011, 12:23:56 AM »
Hey there,

I'm new here and recently bought eufloria off steam, after playing the demo version for a few levels. After i bought the game i had to re-do the levels that i had done on the demo, which i thought was a bit odd but did them anyway. This meant that i only did the first 4 levels. But once i reached level 5, thats where things started to go a bit weird. For a start, whenever i began the level the screen would zoom in to a random seedling, and then after planting a tree on the next asteroid, the seedlings would begin to control themselves, breaking away from the asteroids and attacking other asteroids, or even planting trees on them. I tried unlocking some of the later levels to see if this problem was related to simply one level but it happened on every level bar the first 4 that i had completed on the demo.

Now i looked in the forums earlier to see if anyone else had this problem, and there was indeed a thread from quite some time ago, but it didnt really say how to fix the problem other than by turning off the mouse pad on a laptop. Now i am using a laptop and this does seem to solve most of the problems but i was wondering if there was an easier way to fix this problem, since whenever i touch my mouse pad (on purpose or accidentally) it turns it back on, and i then have to go back into the control panel just to disable it, since simply turning it off doesnt work. I'd appreciate any help people have and I'm sorry if this bug is only to do with mouse pads/there isn't any other way of fixing the problem.

Try holding/not holding Ctrl when you choose a level, that sometimes has a bearing on it, I think.

Did you uninstall the demo before installing the full game?  If not, try that.

I think there is a bug with the game that activates the demonstration mode even if you're not holding down ctrl.
