I tried install under windows, with python2.4 as u suggested. Got this error, when I try to fill
the database:

te File "build\bdist.win32\egg\sqlalchemy\databases\", line 208, in dbap i
ImportError: No module named pysqlite2

I spent more time trying to setup your game than the time I spent evaluating most other games.
Sorry. This is as far as I got:

While: Installing scripts. Error: There is a version conflict. We already have: PasteScript
1.1 but Pylons 0.9.6 requires 'PasteScript>=1.3.6'.

The exe didn't work and I'm pretty certain windows won't run .ini files...

How the hell do you make it run?
Theres a reason we all use the skellington, it's not fun to figure out what "" should do :S

Yikes, why do this via a web server?

The game was nice looking and fresh. Good technical work deploying a web server. I'm not really a big fan "automatic download and install" setups, but you guys took pains to minimize its instrusiveness, and it did seem genuinely useful for this game, so points there. I didn't find the puzzle too interesting, but maybe it would appeal more to the sudoku types. My big complaint was that you couldn't drag the knobs to spin them; it would have benefited usability a lot.

Didn't work to me... I think it was trying to download something, but don't have internet in that machine. Anyway, I think that if it needed it connection, it'd have said something in the README.

Not sure this makes a lot of sense as a web app - a pygame app would have been easier to install. Maybe smaller levels to start out with - 4x4 was pretty daunting.

Does not follow skellington. Can't seem to install. Readme doesn't list dependencies.<br><pre>
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/'</pre>

It's ok but not my kind of game.

Looks flashy, but doesn't do much for me.
Would be better as a normal program than a web server.

I thought things were going so well. I gave up at this point:

No way, i'm not going to install a web application.

It can be disqualified too,
by breaking the skellington rules.
