Is anyone interested in starting a trading card, er, trading thread? I've got some dupes from the Summer Getaway Sale and I'm working on completing the Hotline Miami set.

@unholyone123: How is McPixel not a parody of MacGruber as MacGruber is a parody of MacGuyver?

I've been playing the Mac version for nearly ten hours now and have not unlocked a single achievement despite defeating Mom and fulfilling a number of other achievement requirements. Now, I know my PC version was jacked up because, on the guidance of THE INTERNET, I deleted some EXE and had Steam fix the install. Upon booting up, I unlocked a handful of easier quests. Unfortunately, Google has not been so kind regarding the Mac version. Is anyone aware of a problem with the Mac version?

Flying, at least, was definitely a case of the doing-it-wrongs. Always be flapping. Thanks @DeF. Much easier now.

@DeF said:

balancing on ropes is badly explained. you have to constantly move the remote like clockwork instead of trying to correct in the other direction. slowly wave it from left to right, left to right ...basically a tik tok rhythm (1 second intervals). when doing other things, remember that your next movement input doesn't automatically register whenever YOU want it to, if you're doing things to fast before either the previous animation or action has been completed, it won't work.

Okay, I was definitely moving in reaction to Link's balance.

swinging on ropes works like it should, actually: once you've reached the farthest point of your swing, pull back/push forward to swing in the other direction and don't try to swing in between until you've reached the end of your swing.

I got the impression you needed to jerk the Wii remote -- in any direction -- at the peaks of the swing.

@DeF said:

I don't know where you're having trouble with flying though, it works basically like a paper plane that you hold in your hand.

This is the most frustrating mechanic to me. It took me forever to finish the flight tutorial at the beginning of the game and getting back to the main island before the first dungeon was infuriating. I can not keep my bird in the air to save my life. I'm moving the remote like I would imagine a hang-glider doing. Maybe I'm not diving deep enough to get height following.

I read a comment stating you need to "flap" the remote constantly, which I was not. Is this true? Does this help maintain altitude?

I'm around the same spot. I just finished the first dungeon. I've clocked about eight hours and I would estimate three of those were spent away from the TV, remote on the floor, crying in the bathroom. I'm finding all of the motion controls extremely frustrating -- combat aside. Flying the beetle, flying in Skyloft, balancing on ropes, swinging on ropes. All of this has been a chore and is really just making me hate this game. I feel like it would be tolerable with a standard controller.

Maybe I have a bum remote. Everyone else seems to love it.

@Sparklykiss: I thought they were only unlocked each day so if I wanted to push through all 12 on Christmas day, I could.
