That might be because the video plays only in 360p.
That's probably the case, because stars are only 1 pixel wide.

It says Firefox needs at least Windows 7 for better quality options. Great...
I recorded it in 720p and can naturally select this resolution while streaming it back from YouTube. Thus, as you noticed, this should be a Firefox, or rather Windows, issue.

Indeed. For some reason (probably nostalgia) the Windows 3.1 interface seems very pleasing to me.

Question? How to see properties of a tile pedal what lattice or a door it opens?
There are such keys?

Take a look at this chart: viewtopic.php?f=127&t=4056#p21467

Proceed this way:
  • Press F8 to enable the level editor (or click anywhere on the game screen);
  • Press C to enter the "CONSTRUCTION" menu;
  • Press N to select the "NUMERICAL INFO" item;
  • Point the mouse cursor at the opener/closer floor of interest to see its triggered event number;
  • Press BACKSPACE twice to get back to the menu start;
  • Press E to enter the "EVENT" menu;
  • Press C to select the "EVENT->CON" item;
  • Press +, - or 0...9 to select the number event just spotted;
  • The target door will get the focus.
The next release of MININIM will present a much better level editor experience. I promise.

Many thanks! I will try to estimate also this function.
But does not show if 1 pedal tile opens 2 or 3 gate?
make a video example, please

It would be excellent if there was a menu in mininim-201701122309-win32.
You wrote that the updated version oshidatsya soon. Tell date or it is a gift for New year!?

What tells you about this is the next field status of the respective event, shown next to the event number in the "EVENT->CON" item, as an "N" in case that event triggers the next one, "-" otherwise. Please, see section 6.2.1 (page 50) of MININIM manual.

I'm sorry, I don't have time for that.

Indeed. Fortunately the next release will feature it.

Unfortunately I'll only be able to release the next version of MININIM (hopefully) within the next year. The new version will have many, many improvements. Keep in mind though that I never got a cent for MININIM, and thus I had to get a job and now I'm very busy with work and university (but still working on MININIM as frequently as possible). If you'd like to see MININIM better faster, please consider donating.

For your information, I noticed a bunch of MININIM replays have been added for New 13 levels.
I haven't had time to check them yet, to see if they are valid and such.
