after level 27?

The quotes for cut scenes "after level 27" don't look kosher to me. How could he say "Smote that Kerrek" if the arcade game predated the Kerrek Email?

I'm not seeing anything that says the Trogdor game was created before the interview email. Dragon and Interview were only a month apart. Even so, TBC could still have added it in later. "Smote that Kerreck" is plainly there, just fast forward a little. He's also listed in the credits when you beat the game.

The Brothers E

The arcade game was first seen between SBEmails 66 and 67. Interview was number 62. The game does not precede Kerrek's e-mail. --Upsilon

Wowzers, ok. So, how does one "Fast forward"? is this a right-click-menu flash "forward" command or some other form of strangeness? :) Thanks!

Please, anyone know how to fast-foward??? I'm desperate, and everyone's always talking about it. Tell me!!!

Fast-fowarding, *URGENT*

PPLLEEAASSEE!!! Won't somebody tell me how to fast-foward past level 27?!!? The whole game's a joke until you get there; it's IMPOSSIBLE!!! Please, anybody, notice this message board, and tell me how to FF past that one level. Thank you so much...I would be immensely obliged! -Justin Hack 10/09/04

As far as I know, any program that lets you fast forward won't let you actually play the levels. That said, they recently fixed level 27 (around Valentine's Day '05), so it is now beatable.

Not very urgent

I've tried to get past level 27 quites a few times and, while I don't know how urgent it is, I'm really trying to figure out to see the rest of the game too. Is there a code of some sort, or how does this "fastforwarding" thing work? -ShadowP13

Reply for everyone concerned about anything post-level 27

Please see this forum thread for information regarding the findings in this article. -- Tom 08:34, 12 Nov 2004 (MST)

OLD (original) version of Trogdor - anybody, anybody?

Does anyone have an archived version of the ORIGINAL Trogdor game as it was posted on the website the week the guys were "In Da Basement"? This original version lacked the impossible level 27, but it also lacked all cartoons post-level-20. I'm just curious if a copy's sitting out there somewhere...

[On another note, I'm pretty sure I've visited multiple treasure huts per game, contrary to what I've read on this website.]

I don't know where you might find the original version, but you might start by looking around some of the various mirror sites (see the Links page). As for the treasure huts, you can visit more than one per game, but only once the levels start to repeat. --68.12.101.60 08:47, 20 Feb 2005 (MST)

Check this out Chief!! Possible inspiration!!

http://www.abandonia.com/games/624/Aargh.htm

Look at this! This is a game where you play as a badly-drawn giant lizard and terrorize PEASENTS! IN THATCHED HUTS!!! It's not Trogdor... it's OLDER than Trogdor... but it looks so similar!!! Could it be related - anon

I don't see why it couldn't have been inspiration. It's related to Rampage, which the Chaps are known to like and have parodied on the site. — It's dot com 02:06, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

What? No heading?

Wish I could burninate the knights.--Jnelson09 23:15, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Haven't heard some of the quotes

I haven't heard some of the Strong Bad quotes mentioned. I've played A LOT, too. In fact I played to level 100 just to see the animation, and I never heard the following quotes:

{laughing} "He's on fire! Look at 'em burning!"
STRONG BAD: "Beat that score, Strong Sad!"
STRONG SAD: "I don't even want to play that game."

Could they only have been in the old game? -Anne

I just heard the Strong Sad one. -Aaronak 23:13, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Happened to me too. --68.145.103.189 01:21, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Pause glitch

I just ran into this glitch, so apparently it hasn't been fixed. 24.13.252.150 08:54, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

If it's a glitch... Otherwise, you could click on the Flash file/game and try pressing the spacebar. --68.145.103.189 01:21, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Paused Archers

I didn't see anything here about the trick where you freeze the archers by pausing when they're on the screen.

Ah, I was using an old version, I think. Nevermind.

It's high time we did this.

I've just played a good game of Trogdor (Level 11! New record! WHOO!) and I think we should add something to the wiki: Trogdor Level Guide. Who's with me? --Color Printer 23:10, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, what would we put in it? The movements of the peasants and enemies are random, so we couldn't put anything definite, other than "Avoid the enemies, stomp the peasants, burninate the cottages". Dr. Clash 23:12, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
No, like layouts and hints. --Color Printer 23:15, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

holding down the "G"

I've attempted this to no avail. Am I misunderstanding what "title page" means? Does this only work on certain browsers? (I'm using Firefox) is it holding down lower-case g? shift+g? help! (wants those 30 starting mans bad!)

It means the letter "G" in the word "TROGDOR!" in the title. Not the "G" on your keyboard. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 00:00, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

No "B" on Wii

From frame 193: contraArrayKey = newArray (38, 38, 40, 40, 37, 39, 37, 39, 66, 65). The 66 value is not defined in sprite 387 like the rest of the keys, so therefore, the B value cannot be entered on a Wii. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 08:19, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

I'd test, but I never downloaded the Wii's internet browser... The Wii's controller DOES have a B button, though. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 08:46, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
That said, it DOES work if you play the Wii version through Internet Explorer on an actual computer, but come to think of it, "Start" is pointing at the screen and presisng the Wii's "A" button... --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 08:49, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
But then again: If playing on a PC, the "A" key now functions as the pause button. Since 1 is the Pause button according to the title screen... ah, screw it. Leave it to someone who actually bothered to download the browser to test... --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 08:50, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
It is very likely that the Brothers Chaps were already aware of this little shortcoming. They removed the referrence to the "Secret Code?" on the Hints Page that pops up when you hold the A button (mouse button) on the letter G. It is also worthy of note that the Treasure Huts do still exist, but when I entered one when I played the game, I couldn't move. --President Cold One 10:40, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
The code should go something like: UUDDLRLR(something)1 if entered on the Wii. The complete button map looks something like this (according to Adobe and the decompiled ActionScript): --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 12:51, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Invincibility Disparity

Somewhere on this page (and possibly the Peasant's Quest one, too), it points out Trogdor's non-indestructibility in this game. Would it be worth noting the theory that this game's Trogdor is younger than the PQ one? Evil Egg 13:05, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
