    Haha “Pretentious mode” was the perfect name.
    I just tried it and that was really funny ! But annoying as well when you play too long. I prefer the original audio settings with nothing to waste the awesome music.

    Thanks for that anyway, it made me laugh 🙂

      That was the idea! I always remember the days in “serious” game dev where we’d have an idea we thought was funny and we even implemented it fora laugh but it never went into the full game because we had to be all Serious Face about everything. Modern games need more things like Big Head or Ragtime mode.

    It amazes me that you’re still updating this game for free. I love this game and the update provides some interesting (not great) variety. Thanks for being so supportive of the Waves community! It’s like you’re making mods for your own game for free.

    How about pentatonic minor, for a more sad feel?

    This was a great way of re-highlighting this game on my steam account. I had a lot of fun rediscovering this game. Is there any chance that the waiting music before a mode is picked can be accessed during actual gameplay? ><

    I don’t think this patch was related, since the issue just started today. But I’ve been getting some hard lockups whenever I try to play Waves. I made a post on the Steam forums, which you can find here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?p=32616334#post32616334

    In short, the game will make it all the way to mode selection without a hitch. But once I start a game, it’ll last about a half second as per normal, then the screen will start getting artifacts, and then the game locks up completely. The only way out is for me to completely reboot my computer.

    I left more information (and a non-crippling sound bug) in that Steam forums post. Could you please look into this?

      Disregard this, turns out it was a hardware issue.

    Hello, it seems that the game has a bug. When the score multi reaches x999, no bomb is given any more(so I die immediately after x999 😉 I’m not 100% sure about this since it’s very hard to reproduce the x999. Hope you can investigate this. thx.

      It has to be enabled in the audio settings. If it isn’t there then try verifying the content on steam as it sounds like you haven’t got the most up to date version.

    Oops, yep, it’s there in Settings for Audio, sure enough.
