Spaceship Help!!! August 16, 2007 1:53 PM

I CAN'T DO THE ROCKET SHIP!!!

I get up to the point where he goes in the ship but I can't do the mini-game! Any pointers?

It's So Frustating

(sorry about the spoiler thing, I couldn't help myself but at least it isn't 'two' extreme (Bad pun, I know))

Weird and somewhat funny bugs.

After I beat it I decided what the heck lets mess around with it. Some rather comical bugs I have found.

First off it is possible to enter the water mini-game while in the jaytrix but it is unplayable due to the guy and the crab not showing up. However after you drown you will still be in the jaytrix color scheme yet it will be the normal overview.

After seeing this I thought could I have fun with it. The answer is yes as you can see below.

The above is the result of jatrix+ water minigame + rocket mini-game which was not only played in jatrix but also upside down. When finished I was left with the above....

Fun game...some parts are a little too tough. For example - the targets. I use a track ball, and it must have taken me 1/2 an hour to get enough.

Bummer note -- I was well into the game when I went into the Jaytrix, wasn't having any luck and decided to come out and try back later...none of my progress was saved. Too much effort to go back now.

Reply

I can't for the life of me figure out the cirle puzzle on the Jaytrix. I read the walkthrough and don't get the concept of the

maze.

(Hope I did the spoiler right. O.o)

Please help!!

Reply

NONE of your progress was saved?! o_O

That's very unusual. The only window of opportunity I can see where that could happen is the scenario that FunnyMan mentions above regarding concurrency.

Reloading the game (or entering the Jaytrix) should have no impact on the game's ability to save. =/

Reply

NOOOooOOoo!!! WARNING TO ALL: This may sound a bit obvious so then this is just to address people like me. If you leave the Jaytrix by right clicking and selecting "Forget My Progress", it will forget your progress...completely...in the whole game. Not just in the Jaytrix!! You will have to start all over. Like me... :*-( So BE CAREFUL!

HELP! I can't find the "G" - at the very top of my comments page there is the Casual Gameplay Banner Game - somewhat below there is the smaller "banner" where you can't see the whole picture....where is the G?

Reply

Sorry, I just changed this page. It now has the main banner. You will have to travel to a different page on the site to find the "G". :)

I'll update the walkthrough.

A little Easier and much faster way to get the big rock to show (don't know if this is already discovered)

but after you discovered the frog behind the rock and you restart the browser, you'll notice that a little rock is already in place of that previous big rock, to the "leftist" side. destroy that rock and click on the tree to place one closer to towards the right, and closer to the tree DON'T DESTROY IT THIS TIME. now click on the tree once more and the big rock should appear. it happened pretty much every time i tried it.

I've also managed to complete the entire game, and noticed a little "Easter Egg" as well:

This requires you to complete the entire game. Go and try out ANY of the mini games that require you to leave the forest-like stage (such as going under water, entering the Jaytrix, or playing the rocket stage) you'll notice that the sun will come up all over again and 8/10 so does the welcome sign which will drop into view, but not always.

Ashallond August 16, 2007 11:24 PM

So what do I do if I do not see a banner at all? I've got flash 9 and both firefox 2 and the latest IE...no banenr in either.

Reply

I'd say that's probably a problem with your Flash Player, Ashallond. What else could it be?

Do you see the JIG Puzzle game (just beneath "Support JIG") in the left sidebar? That is also Flash.

Reply

Does anyone have a cheat for the underwater game?

After about a million tries, I just can't get to the end of that one & all the rest of the letters seem to depend on it.

I got 9 other letters all by myself & it's a shame to have this frustrating #?*!ed "game" destroy the experience. Jaytrix was a piece of cake next to this.

Love the concept, but will probably have to give up after so much frustration.

Reply

Once I used the wand, it's gone and can't be used again... the wizard peeks out when I hover the reed, but doesn't come out again.

Reply

1) Correct. The wand is single use. You'll have to retrieve it again to use it again.

2) The Wizard will come out if a condition is met.

zann - don't give up! The underwater game is really easy if you keep this in mind:

Clicking farther away from the stick figure causes it to move faster and jump higher. An absolute necessity for the underwater game.

Reply
Canadian Enchantress August 17, 2007 3:52 PM

Nathanyel, to see the wizard fly, every time:

make sure the stick figure is always on the right, standing by the fire - then the wizard flys out from behind the tree.
If the stick figure is in the center of the screen, than the wizard only peeks out.

One other tip, that made a big difference to winning the underwater game!

Click on View
Click on Toolbars
Deselect your navigation toolbar and/or bookmarks toolbar . . .
You can jump higher!

Reply

Ok this is annoying for the letter e...

I have sound on my computer, it is turned up(I can hear sound from other sites, but I can not hear any sound when I run my mouse over any of the 5 larger stars... what is going on??

Reply

Never mind on the e...

ah ha! You have to click them not just run the mouse over them!

With thanks to FunnyMan for pointing out the concurrency issue, we have just uploaded a new version that should take care of any problems resulting from having the game open in multiple windows.

josh_sec33 August 17, 2007 10:37 PM

Yes I can see that game just fine. I do like the new setup of it than the older one. However, after making sure I updated to the absolutely newest one, I see nothing. I'm not even seeing a box or anything for the banner to be in for it not to work.

Reply

My guess is that it is something within your configuration.

The game has been successfully tested on all 3 platforms and a wide variety of browsers.

Can you try disabling any plug-ins you may have added to your browser set-up? Can you try using a different browser? Can you try accessing it from a different computer?

Wizard troubles solved: I misunderstood "light the "l" " in the walkthrough above.

Reply
m00nshine August 18, 2007 9:05 PM

There's this weird double

jaytrix

that can be done.

Get the wand to drop, then get the guy on the side away from the fire. Go into the jaytrix, then use the wand on the guy. You'll go into the minigame, with no guy and no crab. Just run out of oxygen, then you'll be taken back to the "jaytrix" except with no maze. Then, right-click and go back into the jaytrix. I think this can be infinite times, actually.

Reply

how do you lite the L in casual?

Reply

Ashley - play with the fireflies. :)

Reply

I don't believe it! I went to all that trouble to light up all the letters so it wouldn't be dark, and by the time I'd finished the Sun had come up!

great game, though the rocket thing was a pain in the neck.

It took me ages to work out that that thing in the Jaytrix was a maze!

Reply

AAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!i can't make the wizard appear!!!!!

wait!YES!!!! i got the wand!!!!!!!!

Reply

Where is the comments page used to get the 'G'?

Reply

You're on the comments page, but you can't get the G here anymore. You'll have to try a different page. Try any other page but this one and the main JIG homepage.

Reply

Ugh I can't get the wizard to fly out! I click on the button in the l in casual it lights up for a few seconds i roll over EVERYTHING i dont know what reeds you are talking about. Somebody help?

Reply

Matt
The reeds are at the top right-hand corner of the pond.

Reply

Hi Jay what a great idea making your banner into a game. I was able to do almost all of the letters - with help of the walkthrough - but I am just too stupid to get the S and way too slow for the L in gameplay. I never was any good in Hapland. So now every time I go to your site I am (not so gently) reminded of my failure :}.
Oh well nevermind I still loooooove your site and now on to the new Haluz and Gotmail, there goes the rest of the day.

Randomness August 24, 2007 11:29 PM

I got the L but it would be more helpful if the walkthrough was in some sort of order. At least putting the L first so that the wand doesn't sound so out of place.

And to get the G

go to another page and look at the banner. A G should be in lights. click it and you'll get the G.

Reply

I need help. I lit the L, but is it supposed to go out? And why won't the wizard come out. Roll over does that just mean to put your mouse over it?

Reply

monkey - the L will go out if there's nothing to keep it lit. Perhaps there's something you can get to keep it lit?

The wizard will come out only after a certain condition has been met. You might try to get other letters first. But yes, a roll over means mouse over. :)

Reply

heya luv this game but i'm pretty crap i got. 4 or maybe 5 letters lit up

cannot at all do any of the jaytrix stuff my screen half fills up with stripy squares [is that normal] and i don't know how to get back to that normal game

sinslay07 August 28, 2007 5:03 PM

I found this weird but cool glitch in the game. It makes everything upsidedown while your not in the Jaytrix.

While the rocket ship is still on the screen get the frog and turn it into a guy. then right-click and click "the jaytrix has you". then, very quickly, clck on the guy so he will enter the rocket while the jaytrix is loading. Now you will end up playin the space ship minigame upsidedown. If you finish the minigame everything will go back to normal exept for the fact that you are still upside down!

I found this while screwing around with the game.

Hi - I cannot figure out how to keep the "l" in Casual lit. I know - I'm stuck at the beginning! Any help? Thanks!

Has anyone noticed that after you complete the game that the tiny clickable lights hanging by the trees change to a different color pattern every time you revisit JIG or refresh the screen? Just wondered if there was a hidden game or level here.

haha I found an easter egg, though more of a bug than anything... If you click the big rock

the one with the frog behind it

as it is falling you grab the rock and what's behind it at the same time. It also continues to follow the mouse no matter how much you click. Anyway, I have found much enjoyment out of this great idea!

Toni - don't get frustrated. The rocketship won't appear until after you light the 2nd 'a' in gameplay, which is the one where you make the little stick man fish.

Then just reload the page and the rocket should be there.

For some reason I can't right click on the banner. I am using updated firefox, and updated flash player, I just cannot right click on the banner. I can right click on all sorts of other flash windows, just not this one. Please help?

Reply

I am also stuck on lighting that first L. I feel so left out...

Reply

Aww, nana, don't feel left out. :)

It's really quite easy. Here's a step by step:

  1. First click the stickman to go over to the fire.

  2. Click on the fire to light the stick. The fireflies should become attracted to the stick.

  3. Click the stickman again to go take the lit stick back over toward the letters.

  4. Make sure the right lantern is lit, and let the stick burn out. The fireflies will be attracted to the right lantern.

  5. Turn off the left lantern so the fireflies don't get attracted to that one.

  6. Now without any delay in between, click on the red switch inside the "L" and click on the right lantern to turn it off. The fireflies should light the "L" if done correctly.

Argh! I cannot for the life of me get that frog to turn into a person!
Here's what I'm doing:
1) Get the frog so it is sitting where the rock was.
2) Get the frog to jump onto a lily pad.
3) Get the wand.
4) Drag the wand onto the frog.
All that does is scoot the lily pad over a bit!
What am I doing wrong?

Reply

I gave the frog a "happy ending" and I know how to move the lily pads, I just don't know how to get the real boy 'into' the ship...

Help, please?

Reply

veggie - I think the problem you're having is with the hotspot for the wand, which is not the tip of it. Try using the tip of the mouse pointer as the hotspot instead.

JKoss - assuming you have the rocket ship showing, just turn the frog into the little guy before you make him jump on a lily pad.

cheers, nana. ^_^

When i rightcick it says "do a jig" not "the jaytrix has you" im using firefox 2.0.0.7 and the latest version of flash. Im using a mac with osx 10.4.10.

What is the problem?

There is no problem, Johan.

The right-click context menu displays different things depending on what OS you're using. For Mac OS, the menu should read "do a jig".

JAYTRIX MADE SIMPLE
___________________

How the map works, made simple:

* . *
* . *
* . *
that would mean you can go North (up) or South (down). East (right) and West (left) are blocked.
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
I have now numbered the 9 spots... the only ones you can click on are 2 (move North or up), 4 (move West or left), 6 (move East or right), and 8 (move South or down).

To solve the map...

The map starts out with...
. . .
. . *
. . .
... that means you can go up, left, or down. Go up. Keep going up until you can no longer go up.
Once you do that, start going to the right (click on number 6).
You'll hit some deadends, so backtrack one position and then go down... eventually, you'll see a Star. Position the star in the center and you win.

... forgot all that graph paper stuff.

I just discovered JIG last week and I have to say what an awesome place it is. What a great idea to have a playable banner Jay! You can add my applause to the rest of the great comments about your website. The user feedback on each game is the icing on the cake that sets you above the other gamesites. I would never have completed The Banner Game without the help. Thanks Everyone.

And since I didn't see it in the comments yet... here's one last spoiler for those who completed the game:

You can change the lilypads colors with the wand. Repeated wanding cycles through the available colors. Also, you can get a third lilypad by pushing one of the existing two over to the left behind the sign and then pushing back to the right

My computer's speaker's are busted, meaning I don't get any sound. What order do I click on the stars?

Reply

Zeke - thanks for making my day a special one. :)

Stephen - unfortunately, it won't be easy to help you with this because the stars are randomized so it's not the same for everyone who plays. I managed to get it by accident more than once without trying, so perhaps just try a few different sequences until you get it? I think there's only 5 of them to deal with. Good luck! :)

About the

wizard,
I've found that you don't need to roll over both sets of reeds; just the tallest one in the middle on the right set

I got to the Jaytrix, but all there is on the screen is a green upside-down version of the game plus black space on the right. I do not understand what you mean by the "circles". I'm using Firefox. The top left section of the black space seems to be blinking as well. What do I do?

Reply

JDitto - since the colors for the jaytrix are randomized, it's possible that you just got a bad set. Try reloading the game and reenter the jaytrix and see if that's any better. :)

Reply

Okay, after numerous reloads it worked fine. However, the problem now is that I can't get the rocketship to show up!
You know, I caught the cloud in the water and all, and I turn the frog into that guy and all he does is wave at me! I look through the walkthrough and I didn't do everything in order. Is that the problem?

Reply

I don't think the walkthrough was written to be followed in order.

I believe the rocket ship should show up after you take the stickman fishing.

If you did that, and it's still not showing up, then work on one of the other letters?

Camila - when in the jaytrix:

you're in a maze, and the round discs that appear on the pegs are actually walls. If you don't see the star yet, then you haven't found your way out. Shift your perspective to that of being inside a maze, and you'll find your way out in no time. :)

Try lighting some of the other letters first. The wizard does not come out until you have at least one of the other letters lit.

The walkthrough above is not meant to be followed in letter order.

I have sound on my computer, but I'm not hearing anything when I roll over the stars. Is there a setting on my computer I need to mess with to hear banner sounds? I'm running OSX on a MacBook Pro.

Please, I'm pulling my hair out here.
Does anybody have any tips on how to beat the

rocket mini game?
I must have played it 30 times and I always die at or right after the bit where you have to zig zag up and down 3 times. And I have the feeling there's a lot more to come after that.

Perhaps my reflexes are really bad, but I did manage to pass the targets.
It doesn't help that if I accidentally move my mouse off the top of the banner the ship jumps back to the centre of it. And yes I have closed the navigation toolbar.
Any ideas? It's the last letter I have to complete!
Thanks!

Reply

Hi Kassandra!

I'm sorry you're having trouble with the rocket game. When I played through the game the first time I managed to complete it on my first try.

However, subsequent attempts required more than a single pass to get it right, so I do understand what you're going through. I can say that there isn't a lot beyond the point you're getting stuck, so keep with it, I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT! :D
