This guide allows you to load any level, any size, regardless of uploader glitches. You can bypass all uploading errors Neopets forced upon the users.

canadianstickdeath said:
One time:
Step 1: Download Fiddler
Step 2: Install Fiddler

Every time you start Fiddler:
Step 3: Type into the black bar at the bottom left.
Step 4: Click "Inspectors" and then "TextView" on the tabs on the lower half of the right side.

For every cave you want to load:
Step 5: Attempt to load a level (one that doesn't exist is fine).
Step 6: Find the http request for "/games/cavemaker/pirate_level_load.php?username=usernameyouenteredinhatpc" on the list to the left (it's probably the bottom one).
Step 7: Click "Break on Response" (middle-right).
Step 8: Click "TextView" and replace the contents of the lower text-box with the cave you want to load.
Step 9: Click "Run to Completion".

A convenient method could probably be made so that you could load levels without having to repeat those steps every time, but it would take some work to do and IDK what the set-up would be like on your end.

Visual guide:

Test results of using this method of loading levels with errors in it include, but isn't limited to, the following:
canadianstickdeath said:
- Invalid Terrain Type: Either crashes as soon as it reads the terrain type or crashes as soon as it tries to load any terrain.
- Invalid Background Type: Background is all black. Crashes after a second.
- Invalid Water Type: Crashes as soon as it tries to load a water level. Water taps will load but will not function. Let them run a few seconds or break a few water crates and it will crash. The stream of a water tap is falling is visible, but only the white line.
- Multiple Starting Positions: Only the last starting position in reading order will function, though all of them will appear on the map.
- Multiple Water Levels: Appear to function pretty much like you would expect, essentially creating a row of air pockets starting at where the 2nd water level is placed. Could potentially see use in a cave in order to have an object inside of an air pocket at the very start, but I can't really see that being worth the trouble.
- Especially Large/Small Levels: Load correctly.
- Titles: You can put anything you want. Blank title works fine. Really long title pushes "press jump to start" downward. Not really sure if there's a limit to how long of a title you could use. If you want, you can have the game tell you that it couldn't load the level because you're too stupid using the error; thing.

Hello, all! I have no idea how active this thread still is, so I guess I'll just throw this out here. My problem is that the swf link doesn't work for me on any browser I've tried. I've tried Chrome, FireFox, and IE, and all of them give me errors about compression. This means I can't use Fiddler to play levels as I can't play the game in the first place. If anyone has a suggestion, I would love to hear it. Thank you!

I don't know if it's still possible to play HATPC. However, we do have a game sort of like it called Aeon.

Aeon isn't bad, but I'll still miss HatPC. Is there any way to download HatPC, or are there emulators for it? I really miss it.

If HATPC every actually goes dead at the Neopet's link, it should still be possible to play it so long as somebody downloaded or can locate a copy of the game, right? I thought it was possible to bypass the "unintended location" thing with the goto frame thing. You'll still need some old browser with shockwave... maybe sometime soonish I will try to get the game running on my new computer...

That would be cool. I remember just as I started to like HATPC is when it stopped working. It would be fun to play it again, and make some levels for it. Aeon is a fun game too, but HATPC has a lot more features which makes levels more interesting.

So, since the current method for playing HatPC isn't working now, does this mean we have to find someone who previously downloaded a version of it? Because that might be hard.

Remind me: how did the goto frame trick work again? I think I downloaded a bunch of the HATPC dcr files.

It requires IE. The exact instructions you'll have to find in that thread that guy randomly showed up and posted. Could you upload a copy of HATPC? Besides Goto Frame, there might be a key combination. Where is that guy's old post anyway.... (It's the highest rated topic!)

EDIT: "If you get an error about location, click on it and press Shift-O-K."

What version of IE are you running? If you're running an older version, that might have something to do with it.
