Thanks for the advice, however it did not do anything. The bubbler is still ear raping, the remaster is still non-existent, and the Nemesis mod is sitting right next to the remaster.

How do I contact Tyrone?
I got on a mac and tried my method :

I got Xmas working and Nemesis working.
Didn't get the remaster music or any other bugs fixed. Apparently, the Mac version is using the pre-beta version from the looks of it. It has the same bugs that I encountered when I first beta tested.

To get Nemesis working I...
First I copied everything in my PC Cave Story+\data folder into the Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data folder
Next, I modified Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Mods.txt

From this :
01 RG P10 /TimeTrial/mod/
02 RG P15 /boss/mod/
03 RI35 P05 /CurlyStory/mod/
04 RG P20 /Kaze/mod/
05 RA12 P25 /Nemesis/mod/

To this :
01 R+ P10 /TimeTrial/mod/
02 R+ P15 /boss/mod/
03 R+ P05 /CurlyStory/mod/
04 R+ P20 /Kaze/mod/
05 R+ P25 /Nemesis/mod/

NOW, all mods are unlocked; and Nemesis should be in the challenge section...


To add on Xmas seasonal mod, first you have to download the PC Steam version, then you have two choices :

1)
You can overwrite permantely the original files so Xmas is always on :

Copy the files from :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Xmas\season
to :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\base

And that should do it.

2)
Alternatively, you can turn it into a mod :

Open
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Mods.txt

And add the last line :
01 R+ P10 /TimeTrial/mod/
02 R+ P15 /boss/mod/
03 R+ P05 /CurlyStory/mod/
04 R+ P20 /Kaze/mod/
05 R+ P25 /Nemesis/mod/
06 R+ P30 /Xmas/season/

Save~

Then, copy :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\CurlyStory\mod\mod.txt

To :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Xmas\season

Also you probably should edit the new Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Xmas\season\mod.txt
to read :

WCVE
1
Xmas Story
It's a very buggy Xmas!


And now, it should show up in the Challenges, in-game as a choice.

However, there are a few sprites that are still unchanged for Xmas : The portraits and misc items like chests.

To change those, find and backup :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\base\Face.bmp
and
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\base\Npc\NpcSym.bmp

Then copy :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Xmas\season\Face.bmp
and
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\Xmas\season\Npc\NpcSym.bmp

And paste them in :
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\base\Face.bmp
and
Cave Story+.app\Contents\Resources\data\base\Npc\NpcSym.bmp

NOW at long last, Xmas is semi-turn offable with just a click.
Be warned it automatically chooses the Normal difficulty, and it saves on Curly Story save slots. But, it should play properly.

You could probably add the remastered music manually... but, it'd take a lot of extra work.
Well actually...

I personally like the CS+ version most. I have had no issues with it since the beta and the remaster loaded fine. If I did have to pay for it if I wasn't in the beta, I would have no problem dropping a 10 spot on it. The remastered music is just gravy.

I don't have access to the steam version, so I was unable to try out the Xmas mod, but I did succeed in getting the Nemesis mod working. However, it was incredibly unstable, and crashed multiple times while trying to so much as navigate the menu screen. It also caused Firefox and Activity monitor to crash. The worst error was when it logged me out with no warning, crashing everything.

Errors aside, thank you for the help. Getting to try out the Nemesis Challenge was, in itself, entertaining.

I guess I'll try wading through the 500GB of flash to get to the contact page.

EDIT: Does anyone have any idea on how I would go about submitting a bug report for the contact page? It won't let me type anything in the boxes.

For those who were not able to purchase the Humble indie bundle before time ran out, I bought 3 extra with CS+ and I'd be happy to give them out in exchange for something. Name a price, doesn't need to be big, just something, anything really, to exchange for it. Message me.

HI!

Yes, old topic. I know. BUT! There's news, and I wanted to give a heads up on forums.

Humble Indie Bundle 7, which has been running for about a week now, has JUST ADDED CS+ into the mix. You need to beat the average to get it, and it's $6.57 as I write this. Of course, you get a bunch of other games too as is usual with HIB.

...I guess if you missed it last christmas, now's the chance to rectify the situation.

^ This is how I got the game. :) I'm playing the Linux version of Cave Story+ installed from the Ubuntu Software Center. ;)
