Thank you, I installed desktop Baba two weeks ago and it brings me so much delight daily. However moment ago I noticed my Baba lost their eyes for some reason. Also they don't react when i try to interact with my cursors (pat or drag). Everything else is normal, they are still moving across screen and doing their thing. This is not bug report because I'm for 90% sure restarting the program would fix it, I just wanted to share with this creepy/funny situation.

Please add a feature where sometimes Baba Friends eyes disappear, implying Baba Friend has turned around. This would add flavor and mystique to the enigmatic Baba Friend. Thank you.

Make it for android

how, it is a DESKTOP PET

where is setup.txt

You can open it from the menu that opens when you right-clicking Baba. But the exact path is users\<your username>\AppData\roaming\BabaFriend\

baba slows down my computer and/or completely freezes the screen. i kept thinking that baba was just a virus because there was no problems for several hours. im gonna delete baba soon, but i just had a lot of fun with baba and it surely was an experience. ill be sure to keep the unopened zip file just for an occasion that this gets patched! i dont know if anyone else has this problem.

Ah, that's a bummer. :( The implementation of the toy is quite haphazard, so I can unfortunately see some computer setups not liking it much in terms of performance, and in those cases I can't do much without rewriting the entire toy from scratch in a different language.

very cool

I made custom sprites for like 6 hours but it was worth it. Thank you for making this, it's perfect and Baba is great too <3

By the way, when I'm using two monitors, Baba friend gets glitchy because my monitors have different resolutions (Main monitor is 1440p and secondary is a 1080p drawing monitor). Is there a way to force friend to ignore the second monitor completely?

(+3)

I need to update that in! Thanks for the feedback :)

(+1)

i tried making custom sprites but the transparent part of the sprites were black

(+2)

You need to switch the colour mode from RGB to Indexed; some pixel art programs like Aseprite can do this.

(+3)

Very cute. Works with Wine, though it really doesn't like multiple monitors. Which is understandable.

(+3)

My new favorite game. Now I have a baba friend!

(+5)(-1)

it works with wine development on linux

(+8)

looks like he drank too much wine

This is epic. Dogs can't compete.

i have just a few problems 1: baba goes behind the task bar. 2: baba flickers between falling and not falling when on any full screen window. fix this please and thank you

(+6)

Now I have a decent excuse, why I distract from writing code.

(+3)

I can't change the size of mine, the second time I opened it they were super tiny. :( they also drop down and disappear behind my taskbar and idk how to do anything about it. Does anyone know how to help?

MacOS version please!!

I ran it through VirusTotal, 3 Antiviruses said it's Malware :(

(+3)

they dont know what their looking at. dont let those antiviruses stop you from having fun! >:P

This is unfortunately the reality for Clickteam Fusion -made games (I'm using an old version of the program so it's even more common); they get false positive'd by antivirus programs every now and then. Do note though that that's 3 out of fifty-something.

i also had the problem with the malware thing, baba completely froze my screen and when i opened back up baba, my computer ran embarrassingly slow during a family presentation.

shimeji?

(+1)

is there a rhyme or reason to how he moves? I can't tell if he's effected by gravity or sections within windows or not.

(+1)

The program detects floor by comparing the colours on the background below Baba's feet, but the detection is quite finicky to save processing power.

(+2)

Awwwwwwwww~

So cooooool

(+6)

Very cool! :) Sill sad that this isn’t on Linux tho. I ran it with Wine and basically created a monster.

(+1)

it looks like a cute octopus with a bow

(+2)

Adorable :)

Does anyone have any idea how it works? I kinda wan't to try and make my own.

Really cool, got some sprites for hatsune miku

(+2)

that's so cute! I want her too <3 where did you get it?

(+3)

Baba works through wine on linux, but it seems to interpret https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winuser/nf-winuser-lockwindow... this as locking the taskbar

This is incredible, thank you for posting. I immediately made a Neco Arc friend :3

IT'S A VIRUS

(+2)

cringe 😔

fr?

(-3)

yes

(+1)

no

(+1)

It was made with an old program that sometimes gets a false positive from certain Antivirus programs. If you tell me the name of the program, I could contact them to resolve the issue.

Why is this a virus those it do something illegal?

(+2)

Some Antivirus programs just detect the toy as being suspicious even though it's not, it happens at times.

(+4)

This doesn't appear to be a virus. This is made by the real developers of Baba is You, so it's probably fine

(+3)

so cute :3 

(+3)

can you turn baba off? just wanting to know before buying.

(+3)

yeah. Like desktop goose

(+1)

i have both now

(+1)

yea you just need to right click baba then there should be an exit button and sorry for my bad englis im from denmark

(+2)

This is SO COOL. If it could be minimized to tray it would never leave my desktop, ever.

(+1)
