Visual Sokoban
Version 2.02

- News -

        Here are the latest news dealing with Visual Sokoban:
  • 02/28/2003: I've received 2 e-mails reporting a bug a couple of weeks ago. I finally got around to fix the bug and you can now grab Visual Sokoban 2.02 which fixes it (a solutions related bug). With this new version the bug will not happen anymore. However if you already have the bug, you have to fix it manually.

    IMPORTANT: If you have the "Run-time error '13': Type mismatch" error when runing Visual Sokoban, you have to edit both your Users\[name].sav and Users\[name].rec files and search for the "@" character. If you find this character delete it. Save the files and you shouldn't have the error anymore.

  • 07/28/2002: I've added the few skins I've received, better late than never ;). If someone wants to take over the Visual Sokoban project I'd be glad to send him/her the VB6 sources and the informations about the levels database (which needs some heavy modifications but I can't be arsed to work on it). So if you're interested, contact me.

  • 07/27/2002: The site's been down for a while now, so I thought it'd be time to make it available again. Nothing new, still the good old 2.01 version and I don't plan to work on it either. Enjoy this version and enjoy the site. I'll see if I can find some skins I've received over the year to add them here ;)

  • 07/31/2001: Visual Sokoban 2.01 is out, it's a really small update which fixes some background transparency problems in the toolbar, and also a couple of external level related bugs.

  • 07/24/2001: Big update of the skins pages, 18 new skins, and some updates of some old skins. You can download a file with all the current skins in the download page.

  • 07/21/2001: I've just noticed a small bug in the savegames and I fixed it, so if you had already downloaded Visual Sokoban 2.00, you should download it again (sorry), anyway it was a small bug that almost never happened. In the level 736, try to "Save to a file" and then try to load your savegame, if you don't have any bug then it's ok, but if you see the bug then download Visual Sokoban 2.00 again.

  • 07/21/2001: one year later it's here, Visual Sokoban 2.00 is finally out, with 3000 levels, mouse support, cool skin possibilities, multi-users support and more, go download it now ! The skin part of the website hasn't been updated yet but I'll do it soon.

  • 07/30/2000: there is a new beta ready to be downloaded in the Download page, it fixes some bugs from the beta 07.17 and adds a few features, just play with it.

  • 07/27/2000: I'm looking for a splash screen for Visual Sokoban 2, but since I'm really not a graphist, I'm here to ask for help. If anyone is interested in creating a splash screen, e-mail me here and I'll tell you what I'm looking for.

  • 07/24/2000: I just bought the domain name, and the Visual Sokoban's website has now a cool new adress: !

  • 07/17/2000: Visual Sokoban 2 is here ! Well, not really, it's just a beta, so if you want to help me by giving me some feedback on it, I would really appreciate. Go to the Download section and get the beta 07.17. There are new features, but the game is not finished yet, read the TXT file carefully and tell me what you think of it by sending me an e-mail.

  • 06/10/2000: just added a new skin called "Sokoban Mac", adapted from the graphics of a mac sokoban game.

  • 05/21/2000: a new skin called "Gems" has been added to the Skins page.

  • 02/21/2000: just a little note to say that Power Team has released a new game today. If you like Tetris and Skins, you'll love SkinTris, a Tetris clone which supports skins, there are already 12 skins ! You can download it from the SkinTris website.

  • 01/23/2000: Y2K survivors can download a new skin today: Blue Knight, a chess-based skin.

  • 12/31/1999: just added 4 more skins: Nuggets, Punkish, Y2K and Winter, download them before the end of the world (you don't have much time).

  • 12/13/1999: 4 more skins added: Earth, Wind & Fire, Fred the Dung Beetle, Simplicity and The Blues, there are now 34 Visual Sokoban skins !

            I can now give you some informations about the development of Visual Sokoban: I've included a total unlimited boardsize, levels are coded differently, the PAK format has totally changed and is now really smaller and better, but don't worry, I'll make a level manager which'll allow to import PAK & TXT formats. Skins are not limited to the 25x25 image size anymore, so big or small skins will be allowed, or strange formats like 80x20 if you want. I've also added a new option in skins: you can have different pictures for walls like corners, vertical walls, horizontal walls... (total of 46 different pictures !), some skins like Bjrn Kallmark's one really look better, but it asks a lot more work than a regular one-pic for a wall kinda skin. And the most important: I've started to work on the mouse support, it's now possible to move using the mouse (it gets the shortest path between the mover and the destination, works perfectly), but you still can't push boxes with mouse, this part seems really, really hard, so I don't know if I'll be able to do it.

  • 12/09/1999: 5 new skins added today, I should have added them before, but I hadn't much time, well here they are: Jue 4, Moonlight, PentHows, Rayny Sunday and Rubik's Tiles. I've also added the 'Pack_adp' solutions thanks to Alex Scott.

  • 11/28/1999: another new skin today: Marquard99, download it in the Skins page, there are now 25 skins on this site !
