I started a user name on the "easiest" difficulty, since I was getting destroyed handily by anything that moved. Now I've beaten the game on easy, and want to play it on the next difficult setting, but it looks like the only place where you can select difficulty is when you create a new user name.
Does the difficulty automatically increment when you beat the game, or do I need to use another name? It would be cool if it just automatically got harder (or if there was a difficulty selection in the Options), since I would like to keep my score information in one user name so I can feel like I'm making progress.

what you can do is edit the difficulty in the config.txt file. it's in the data folder that is within the lugaru folder. just open the file in simpletext (yes, use simpletext, not textedit), then change the line that says
to whatever you want the difficulty to be

You can use text edit, you just have to convert to plain text and resave, it will work then without having to repeat.
The difficulty setting in config.txt was used when Lugaru did not have the Set Difficulty option in user creation, I'm not sure it does anything now.

yes, i actually tried it, and i dont think changing it in config.txt does anything.

You have to make a new account to change the difficulty. It would be strange to keep your high scores when you go up in difficulty, because they would no longer apply.

I suppose, but it would still be nice to be able to beat scores obtained on easy difficulty while on hard. Gives a nice sense of accomplishment.
But whatever. Doesn't really matter, I just wasn't familiar with the way difficulty works in the game.

yeah, i think if someone wants to keep their user through beating the game on successively harder levels, they should. Just make it so that you can't shift downward, like have some warning on the difficulty page saying that you can't move down in difficulty. It'd be fun to see if you could beat your old scores from easy on a harder difficulty

Or just keep track of the high score and what difficulty level it was attained on.
Then it wouldn't matter if users restarted the game w/a different difficulty level.
