Maybe you can try installing the visual studio redistributable, per this post about a similar issue?

That fixed it, thanks!

Maybe the BTB site installation page could have a note about it, since it might harm player numbers if they come across it and don't have an easy link to the fix.

Wow. Just submitted my last reviews so that's me done and dusted for this year's competition. What an utterly splendid bunch of levels they were too. Thank you so much to all involved. :2thumbsup:

Just started a third level. Is a lot of fixed cameras a theme throughout the series or was that just Beyond the Sky?
Imo, Nest of the souls is the winner.
UGH! I thought you meant it was your favorite. What you meant is that the fixed cameras are awful. And you are correct. Just started. So annoying.

Fully agree with you about fixed cameras. And are you in the American part of Oklahoma or the Indian part?

In the U.S. bit. For now. :D

I've just wrapped up my final review and would like to take this opportunity to offer my thousand thanks to everyone involved with creating both the package and these wonderful levels. :2thumbsup:

How do people manage to finish playing - and reviewing! - 16 levels in less than a month?! :eek2: I've finished only 6 levels so far and submitted just one review, but I hope to speed up from next week onwards, when I hope to have more free time. Anyway, there's still more than 6 weeks to go till the end of the contest, so I should be able to finish the remaining 10 by then. :)

I must say that the quality of these levels is nothing short of amazing. :2thumbsup: I just finished playing Manjushri's Sword, which is the lowest rated one in the contest so far, but even that one was so enjoyable. As for some of the highest rated ones - they're simply jaw-dropping. :widemouth: A special shout-out to my current two favourites, A Matter of Life and Death and Nest of the Souls. :2thumbsup:

Garden Of Four Seasons is an instant classic, the entire way the environment and the gameplay were conceived is *chef's kiss*. I can see myself replaying it multiple times in the future.

"chef's kiss" :lol:

You're absolutely right though. That one is definitely in my top 3 and probably #1, but I'm still playing through them all.

Finally finished all 16 levels and just WOW!!! Thank you to all the brilliant builders, beta testers, organizers, walkthrough writers and BTB birds in the Stuck threads helping me through. What a magnificent set of levels and such a delight to play (I'm waiting 'til the close of competition to publish the reviews).

Now, I will be playing my favourite BTB 2020 level once again because I loved it so much and I'll also be playing one other one again because I can't make up my mind about it just yet.

I totally agree with lizard queen's words. Thank you! Not a bad level to be found. I'm happy to be done with all reviews, to be honest. But it was great :D
At first I loved it, I just couldn't use it the right way... Then, it all came to me!
