I am having issues with Knightin' on Linux. I have a ton of custom fonts installed for development purposes (Ruby and Golang dev) and the game craps the bed on launch due to Fontconfig errors, but if I move or delete the system fonts directory, it works just fine. Is there anyway to get the game to look at my user fonts directory instead or disable the check entirely?

I'm playing Knightin'+ and I think I'm stuck. I'm on the 4th dungeon. I have found two keys, but I have already used both of them. There is a third door which requires a key (in room 4-2 on level 4-2, accessed via the teleporter at room 1-1), but I cannot seem to find the third key (I think I've double-checked every room on every floor accessible to me, and the only unopened chests are currently blocked and I don't think there are any unsolved sokoban puzzles.
So you've chosen the Crimson Armor route. The first key that you can obtain is on the floor 4-3 in the room 4-1. The second one is on the floor 4-2 like you mentioned. If you collected both of them you'll have to buy the key in the shop. The boss route is pretty straightforward. You'll be able to find one key on the each floor starting from the floor 4-4 except of floors 4-6 and 4-7 (there are no keys on these two).
Thanks for the quick reply! Your response encouraged me to persevere and I have managed to make some additional progress now. (Specifically, I previously somehow missed the instructions on level 4-5 about how to activate the lanterns, now that I've figured that out more rooms are opening up). Anyway, thanks for making this game, it is really fun!
So, I'm stuck. Floor 4-3 Dark Temple. I had 2 keys, I'm guessing I was supposed to use both keys on 4-3, but used one of them on 4-4. I need the key for the bottom left room on 4-3 in order to progress any further on 4-4. I've went through every room several times backtracking but to no avail. Have I missed something or will I have to completely restart the game?
Edit: This is for the Knightin+ version on Xbox1.
Hey! You don't have to restart the game. I've just replied to your email ;)
is the qr code supposed to just say i
QR codes contain solutions to the puzzles. Both of them contain codes that consist of numbers or arrow symbols. Also you can solve puzzles without using codes. Hints are scattered on the dungeon's floor.
10/10 amazing game, would love to see more of this
This game is awesome,but QR Code puzzle little suprised me.This game is 11/10!Keep up the good work!
really fun game I liked the qr code thing too
Thank you for playing! It's cool that you dig the qr code mechanic! I thought that majority hated it.
It's really good. I like the graphics. The music can get annoying, but overall great game. You put a lot effort I can tell
is knightin + out? It's nearly the end of march
also computer fixed!
Congrats! That's great news!
Sorry for not responding in a while. I had personal issues this month and hadn't time to work on Knightin'+ during the last 3 weeks :(
But I have good news too. I'm going to make a closed beta test and you're invited! If everything will be fine I'll be able to start it next week. I haven't found any means to send private messages on itch. Therefore send me your contacts (e.g. email) please so I'll be able to send you a beta key when it's out. Below is the list of my contacts. Choose the most convenient option for you.
facebook. Cause that's the only one I can login to.
Also thanks for inviting me! 😀 Sorry about what happened(can't do it if I didn't do it),glad your ok.😀 just one question, will knightin+ be free?
hope you like it :-) 😊😀😁
Here from Nymphiad. My friends had a lot of fun watching me fall in a loop. It had a great concept and playthrough. Only got fully stumped once so the walkthrough was super helpful. Can't wait for part two! Glad you have more games to tide me over!
Thanks for playing my games! I can't promise Nymphiad 2 right now, but sequel to Knightin' is on the way :)
that's a jumbled mess though. XD. But this is Darkcreeperlord.
Wolod! Long time no see./me commet. XD. anyways how's knghtin+ going. My name and profile picture may be different but that's cause I'm on mobile and I forgot my password. xd.
Hey DarkCreeperLord! Thanks for not forgetting about me :)
I decided to take a tiny break before Knightin'+ release and participate in Pixel Day on Newgrounds. It's the same annual contest in which I participated with original Knightin' last year. This time my entry is a little puzzle platformer called Nymphiad. I'm going to release it tomorrow by the way.
Knightin'+ is on the final polishing stage. I'm going to make a trailer and add all the final touches right after the contest. I'll try my best to release it in the first half of February.
cool! My birthday is in February also of course I wouldn't forget about you Wolod knightin will always take a special place is my heart it's too good! :-)
it will be a while that until I fix my computer but as an idea try adding mobile version too so computer or not anyone can play it! Just some food for thought though. :)
or some new characters/classes to make the game be different for everybody but again that's just some food for thought.:)
interesting i decided to check in and im trying to find Nymphiad? is it on Gamejolt?
Thank you for all the suggestions. Game is 99% finished and I won't have enough time to add new playable characters. Release has been delayed few times already. But I like this idea very much. Perhaps I'll make an addon or dlc (or how are these things are called nowadays :D ) with this feature after the release.
That's cool! Happy upcoming birthday to both of us ;)
When will it be finished?
This game is already finished. But I guess that you're asking about a sequel called Knightin'+. It's almost done. Final dungeon is almost finished. I'm going to release it right after the winter holidays. You may expect new update for Knightin' and demo of Knightin'+ soon.
so, whats the difference? i thought Knightin' was a demo of a full game .
This is just a small game made for a contest. I didn't plan to expand it at first. But lots of people all over the internet convinced me to change my mind. Knightin'+ is a sequel that will have a separate demo version. Why don't I want to use this game as a demo? I liked my idea with QR codes containing solutions. But unfortunately most of the gamers disliked it very much. So I removed them in sequel and redesigned the first dungeon. I want this particular game to remain in its original form as a contest entry with QR codes :)
oh, now i understand, thank u for ur time, one last question, the sequel will be larger than Knightin'?
Hey whats up Wolod! I just was asking you had told people about Knightin'+ release was in the Summer of 2018. Its now Fall 2018 and a month from Winter. Just wondering whats going. Cya.
Hey ExoticPanda! Glad that you're asking. I had some problems that distracted me from the development of Knightin'+ for a few months. So yes, I didn't complete it in time. Currently I'm working on the final dungeon. Stay tuned!
Hi, thanks for create this game, you're awesome! Thanks for not be like other devs, that doesn't create games for Linux, because its not a viable platform! You'are the future of gaming, a good future!
Hi there, thank you for posting up a fun game to play. No story = no fancy ending ;)
Anyhow, there was quite a bit of backtracking involved, but it was never boring because each floor had a few items to pick up, and thankfully the shopkeeper sells the same things on each floor.
The fact that there are infinite lives for the player made this game more relaxed towards mistakes, which helped as I kept dying to the bullet-shooting monsters :p
Thank you for making this game, and I look forward to what you'll release in the future :)
Wait a minute, you're the creator of Ivan Fukkoff and Sunkin's Wrath!? I enjoyed playing those games, thought I could never quite finish the Sunkin game, probably because it got too hard at a particular boss, though I'm not sure which one :p
Yes, I am :)
Which boss was too hard? I can give a hint
Anyhow, I haven't played the game for some time, so I think I got stuck at the giant wizard boss that shoots projectiles at you while jumping in and out of a lava-filled hole in the ground
It's the final boss. His only weak spot is the eye. You have to use trampolines to reach the height needed for attack. He's not too hard if you have obtained the energy shield from the shop. Shield costs 5 diamonds which are all located in the same location (ethereal city).
good game and i hope you do well but there was one thing though the game when you were going through a door if you were to close to the top of the door it would faze through the door a little bit when going through right and left doors but this is a great game and i think hat it will catch on.
Thanks for the bug report. I'll fix it soon.
One of THE BEST games I have ever played. If you make this into a bigger series, I will certainly buy it, hands down!
Thank you very much! I'm working on an extended version actually. It will be called Knightin'+ and I'm going to release it really soon.

My congratulations! I'll patch the game soon (before the release of Knightin'+). Player won't be able to skip shield after that ;)
nah wtf how do you skip shield :0
Wolod let me know if there actually was a glitch cause this doesnt sound believable so far i tried everything and even so look at his 100% run times they look made up
Cute, fun, polished and beautiful. Good work, I love it! <3
first game i played on itch.io
Hope you've enjoyed it ;)
Hey! I really enjoyed the game, it was incredibly enjoyable and overall fun to play as well as well as fairly challenging! Good luck with further developements!
Glad that you enjoyed my game, I enjoyed your video too. Don't be very harsh on Jeff, he seems to be a nice guy :)
I want to clarify some points.
Both of us (me and McMillen the developer of Binding of Isaac) used old Legend of Zelda games as inspiration for our creations. In fact Knightin' is more similar to Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past than Binding of Isaac. It was an amazing game by the way. A real masterpiece. You should really check it out. I bet that you'll really enjoy it. Just use any free emulator if you don't have any old Nintendo console.
Also I made this game all by myself. But it took me 16 days actually. Pixel Day didn't have very strict deadline ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
nice game, i want more
Fun and simple. I wish the last boss had a bit better tells and that more puzzles actually required you to use the items you find, but overall great.
This is a really good game! I really enjoyed it! Good work!
Wolod you talked about a updated version of Knightin a while back is it getting close to finished? Sorry but its about to 2 months since you said that.
Hey! Knightin'+ is going to be finished this summer. And original Knightin' will be updated few days before the sequel release.
-3min off last Record 15:42.79
-11 secs off last record
Hey Hold678 if youre there tell me had no communication and my runs havent been submitted yet just wanna know if youre still there.
Wanna see when World Record Starts go to 11:38 in video!
I edited this video to where it ONLY show World Record now so dont bother looking for it! its right in front of you!
Hope this helped Hold678 i pulled the clip out for you.
Hi i'm the one who got 3:53 for any%. I'm trying to get the world record and i'm using the timer your using but the timer wont show on screen, do you know how to get it on screen?
OMG dude your back ive been waiting for your return if you have a youtube tell me. But if your using OBS is it recording right?
if not use OBS or if its not working tell me. Now do you use LiveSplit I mean you say you use it so ill go with yes. But idk because for me i click the livesplit then open up the window that i need it to be shown on. so maybe minimize whatever browser you are using click on your timer and then click the browser again but pull it back up at the bottom of page?
I could only figure it out if maybe you recorded the problem and posetd it to your channel on youtube for me to see.
But after that is fixed if you do Any% runs submit them to leaderboard and I'd like to know if you'd ever do 100% or No Damage?
Btw I think Hold678 has mysteriously disappeared and he's the Knightin' Leaderboard Mod and the ONLY mod right now so idk when he'll be back but i'd say submit any runs you can submit!
No i don't have a youtube, OBS or LiveSplit so that might be the problem.
but i cant get a youtube. :(
Hey Hold678 nice to see that the leaderboard finally changed and kept the actual date the run was first uploaded! it must have been slowly loading on leaderboard for weeks now and finally got up by itself? Just glad it finally made it!
it's a good game with good music... i like
exotic please resubmit your 15 minute run in 100%
Your 15 minute 100% run is not working for some reason I have no idea why
cute grhapichs! its great! take a look of our game too! Fluffy Defenders! Thanks!
