nice game but idk if u know, but when you put in the password, it doesnt connect.

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AydenB it should, it may not work if you are forking and then running it. But the embed should work! It won’t work on forking I believe because the passwords are stored in a .env file which is hidden. So when you fork it the .env file doesn’t get forked so therefore the passwords will break

@mrsprinkletoes They aren't working for me either, even in the embedded.

MrSprinkle

@Auhsoj1 Alright, I'm just going to switch back to the passwords just being in the code.

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@Auhsoj1 @AydenB alright, it should be working again now! no idea why the .env file wasn't working

@mrsprinkletoes ok nevermind, when i first looked at the emails it shows all of them at once now.

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AydenB oops, i might have forgot to do something give me a sec

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AydenB okay! I think I've fixed it. I accidentally ran through the whole game to get all the emails, and repl.it automatically saved them into the files and I forgot to delete them, but now it should be fixed! let me know if you discover anymore bugs

Profile icon
AydenB

@mrsprinkletoes so i don't know if this is a bug or not, but when I get into stevies computer and read the emails, nothing else happends besides i get another email.

@AydenB Steve is just a side mission, the main story is with TechCompany - read your first email you have “illegalcompany” then that has the password to hack into TechCompany

Profile icon
AydenB

@mrsprinkletoes oh at first it didnt have the password

Great game!

I love it, could you make a html version?

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@coderash i know some html, but before that i'd have to learn a lot more js and stuff as I'm most comfortable with python and lua

I really liked the game!

I can't get past where it says that someone wants a free phone.(In the Russian computer) Where do I go next?

Don't worry I figured it out.

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@DUN0040 good to know you figured it out!

Profile icon
DUN0040

@mrsprinkletoes Thanks a lot

Just beat the game, I thought it was quite fun, good job!

@AdrianTang thanks!

I love this!!!
Also I wanted to drop a line and say can't access help from steve.mail
;)

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@mViolet01 ah, I'll fix that hopefully some time soon! I added the help menus after the main game was put together, and I probably missed one or two places.

Profile icon
mViolet01

Awesome - keep up the good work!! @mrsprinkletoes

@mViolet01 thanks! :)

project mode doesn't support replit module, apparently:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 9, in
import replit
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'replit'

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@FakeName4 that is very odd, I haven't had any issues anywhere with the replit module yet

Profile icon
Sparkster

help me out here Mr.Sprinklestoes what do I do and how do I do it. (Put it in order pls)

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@Sparkster i really suggest trying to figure it out by yourself! i don't want to spoil it for anyone else either. i suggest maybe just asking around to people who have already figured it out and won

The Steve computer doesn’t work

ABulman

Great game, just a bit confusing after you've logged into steve and read his mail

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@ABulman steve isn't really required to progress in the story, but i think i will make it so that you get a slightly different ending if you also discover steve's cheating

edit: added a slightly different ending email if you help melissa with steve! also added changelog where that is now posted on the original post

for the game, are we allowed to look into the files? I can't go any farther than the "no!" email

Profile icon
TheImagin33r

errors instantly. message says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 9, in
import replit
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'replit'

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@TheImagin33r Works for me? Make sure your connection isn't weak or something, replit is a repl.it package thats already installed so it shouldn't error as long as you are running it on the repl.it website

Profile icon
AdriannaBordona

I listed the files, opened the one titled "Good!" and it told me I beat the game... Is this a bug or did I accidentally hack it?

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AdriannaBordona Hm, it seems that repl.it saved the files that are created later on in the game to when you begin. I'll attempt to fix it!

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AdriannaBordona Should be fixed!

Profile icon
AdriannaBordona

@mrsprinkletoes Great! The game is very interesting! I got stuck on the password to techcoRU..

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@AdriannaBordona The password for their systems is located techco archived emails!

Profile icon
AdriannaBordona

@mrsprinkletoes Ah, I missed the list archived command. Got cocky and thought I could remember all the help keywords ><

Profile icon

Haha! Great game, It's very well made. We think alike though, I made my own hacking game...

Wrong password crash the game

Profile icon
DUN0040

where it says "There's" in the end part you accidentally capitalized the 'h'. Just saying.

Profile icon
Anthony_Chavez

I don't know where to get the password for TechCompanyRU nothing tells me the password but other from that a very good game. :)

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@Anthony_Chavez you gotta look through the archived emails of techcompany!

It's a good game, but rather confusing, as a linux terminal user I saw that it looked like bash and immediately started coding in bash and got a whole bunch of errors :P. Overall a good game though!

Profile icon
MrSprinkle

@RogueKing haha, yeah. it likely isn't similar in functionality to an actual bash terminal at all, i was just going for the terminal feel.

@mrsprinkletoes You did it pretty well haha ;)
