[SOLVED] [1.8] Jump key brings to top of game screen

Postby BobSongs » 21 Oct 2010 18:42

System: Ubuntu Linux, Karmic Koala, 9.10
SMC: 1.8 from Ubuntu repositories.
Resolution: 1680 x 1050

Issue
When "Jump" key is pressed, the screen shifts to the very top of the screen and not the character jumping. When the character lands, the screen returns to normal. This happens whether full screen or not. When Maryo stands on the first pipe on the first level and JUMP is pressed, the 9 swirling coins are seen at the top of the screen.

Odd point
This doesn't happen under different accounts. Another account has no issues with this.

Question
Where are the SMC configuration files in the home folder? Perhaps deleting them and starting again would help.

Solved

Folder ~/.smc renamed to ~/.smc-old.
Game restarted.
Animation flows perfectly.

I believe I understand what went wrong.

The ~/.smc folder (containing the application's configuration files) was a remnant from an earlier installation, something prior to version 1.8.

Off topic: My 8-year-old son is excited about this game. Namely: the game level editor. His favourite games include level editors (Supertux, Rocks and Diamonds, etc.). Thank you for your efforts.
