This mod sets out to better contextualize the game to make it more accessible without changing the core experience.

If a gamepad is plugged in, the pay button must be pressed to use an exit.  Other wise, up on the keyboard.


Another feature that has been added is a block that when whipped changes the screen resolution internally.  Try it out!


I also added a little message prompt when you touch exits.  I got the idea from seeing the XBLA trailer.

Current Features:
  • Pay button used for exiting (Gamepad only)
  • Button prompts when able to use exits
  • Cost of kiss and purchasing price of Damsel displayed when touching her at Kissing Shops (to avoid having to pick her up and risk her leaving)
  • Metal box at the bottom right on the Title screen that changes scaling options internally when you whip it.  1-4 are standard scaling options, while 'F' fits the game to your screen resolution

Download Mod: Spelunky-Ease 1.1

Download Source: Spelunky-Ease.1.1.gm81 (gm8.1)

Download Spelunky 1.1 Files (required to run mod): Spelunky 1.1

This mod is built off of the unofficial 1.2 framework.

Good idea. As a fellow gamepad user, I frequently go thru exits when I don't mean to.

I've shifted the development of this project into more of an "Ease of Use" mod.

Currently working on some more features.

What I have done so far:
  • In-game screen scale switcher
  • More context sensitive exit prompts (only display when you can exit)
  • Shop owners at kissing booths will eventually tell you the price to buy the Damsel(so you don't have to risk her getting startled and leaving)

At the moment I'm just polishing up.  I'll be releasing and update soon.

Nice! Does the mod have to be played with a gamepad?

The only thing the gamepad does is make the pay button be used to exit.  All the other features will work regardless.

Uploaded the new version dubbed Spelunky-Ease.  Unfortunately I couldn't solve the Damsel shop problem, so that might have to be for another time.

Oh Sad

I do plan on doing something about it, but it might take a while seeing as I have to get lucky and actually get a kissing shop to test it.  The rest of the mod works as advertised, though. Wink

Thanks for being rad. Cheesy

If you could find the variables used to figure girl price it should be pretty easy

No sense leaving it up to chance! Just temporarily tweak the shop odds so it always generates a kissing parlor when a shop is made.

Of course.  Somehow that didn't even cross my mind. Tongue

I'm experimenting with several options.  Just thought of something that should get the kissing booth problem solved. Wink

Edit:  New version up to solve Kissing Shop dilemma.  Enjoy Cheesy

I believe I have this mod doing what I want.  Other than any bug fixes, now I can move forward and work on another mod that's a bit more exciting. Lips Sealed
