Domdora is still the monster infested pit that it was

i still appreciate the intelligence of the star wyverns and dragons for going all that way to kill Domdora just so they wouldn't have to deal with the walls and fat rock dude in mercado. they have the right idea here.

almost done with the tiles! (finally) just need a few more things like a fence, a wall and a couple more demon castle things.

 

Also decided to add a game to the trilogy, what you ask? Yup it no longer is a trilogy because I'm adding a game, which will be worked on after III. Ambitious aren't I. But that project will be top secret, no info other than it's existence, Oh I bet you wanna know what it is, well be prepared for something awesome!

 

Casino getting revamped yet again. Slot machine type game is in the works, and so is black jack (easier to event than poker). Leaving in the random maze thing for metal menagerie and other types of floors.

 

I will get back to this on sunday as the army thinks it's cool to send new recruits into the woods to find crap with a map and compass. Good thing I'm used to this sorta of thing from multiple trips to the white mts NH. :overjoyed2:

Impressive post! I mean it. From top to bottom, very impressive.

 

Screenshot: Very cool. :wd_coolslime:

New Tiles: Will probably be just as awesome!

New Game: Are you kidding us!?! A whole new game! Seriously impressive! :whoa:

Revamped Casino: Love me some sidequest-minigame-distractions. *giggles* Black Jack should be really cool. :overjoyed2:

Army stuff in the woods: Hey, it's a real life treasure hunt... kinda... sorta... ok, probably not. But still, pretty impressive. :thumbsup:

 

Hmm...

May have gone overboard with the smilies... Probably due to lack of sleep. Went to bed a little too late and got up a little too early. Oh well. :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, great work on the game. Keep it up!

Yep! :overjoyed2: An actual Fan game, I think it'll be mildly interesting to say the least but unfortunately I have to do the main series first. I'm not just gonna quit it. For the fangame I have the story pretty much played out in my head and even though It's staying secret until it's completion I'm fairly certain that people well recognize what is going on and when the game takes place.

I'm intrigued. I envision it somehow tying the first trilogy with the second.

hmmm... no comment on that King Zenith.

 

Anhow, mastered party chat AND searching underfoot. The sad part is I finally got rid of the bugs working on a small demo game for someone who switched to VX. So now I have to replace all the stuff in my game with the new stuff. But I never said I was great and it's a learning process.

Can't talk to the dead.

Really nothing?

 

I know searching underfoot has been done before so I shouldn't be so happy about figuring it out but I haven't seen a party chat implemented in a fan game as of yet maybe it'll be a new trend?

I hope so. It seems like a gigantic undertaking though. Writing all of those Party chat lines that is. Good luck and I definitely can't wait to chat up Lady Lora.

Oh it is giant, and I don't think I realized it until now. All those switches... Each town has a different party chat thing for each character. In the demo party chat is only used for one person, and the game consists of a shrine, castle, cave, town, tower, and final boss castle, and I'm already up 10 different sayings. This is going to be massive by the time I revamp mine. But despite the huge size of the party chat it's really easy, but due to the size there is lots of room for errors.

 

Edit: Just realized party chat can be cut down a lot by doing it based on map ID rather than switches... Oy vey. This demo is great though, I might release the playable one just so you guys can rate some of my mapping and see how badly auto tiles screw up the SNES graphics.

 

Game update: Taking out the mini map, kind of useless in large dungeons and it is easy to screw it up.

HAHAHAHA I DID IT! That's right I finally think I perfected a party chat event system. There were other things I could have taken screen shots of but I figured 4 are enough for now. I've been toying with this all night.

Updates for DQI:

 

New party system with built in reserve. I made my own through eventing which was basically a reorder command like in the classic trilogy, but now it's set up like the wagon command, only without having the wagon follow you.

 

black jack is definitely in. set up so you can use the "hit" command 3 times for a total of 5 cards. dealer will play after you decide to stay. there is a double or nothing round as well. Now all this has been done with basic window, no pictures yet, that will be the hard part.

 

slot machines... are IN. the are no where as fancy as the real games as the reels don't spin but they are going to be in. this negates some of the mini games such as tetris and pacman. but the slime wrangler game is still in and treasure trove are still in.

here's a playable version of the demo I made for a couple of people to teach them how to make dqish events such as outside and return, how to make inns not bring to life dead players etc. So there's no real point to the game other than that, but I'm posting it here so you can see how party chat is going to work, as not many have tried to attempt this (cybersavior might have mentioned it but not sure if he did or not).

Apparently EdrickTheHero is turning the above demo into it's own game. A real game. Interesting news to me. And did no one want to try to slay the demon lord Jamirus? I should have said there wasn't any point because there is a small quest. On to DQ:RR.

 

There are 4 types of slots, they take bets of 25, 75, 50, 100 coins. Only one row can win no diagonals etc. And yes some of them are rigged to fail... have fun with that :laugh:

 

Black jack has a small flaw where you can have 2 of the same card from the same suit and so can the dealer. minor no biggie I guess.

 

Treasure Trove is now pay by floor. 10 tokens per floor and the more floors you get the higher chance of getting a special floor (like the metal menagerie floor).

 

final monster count (including bosses) is 85. A vast increase over the original. Anddddd well that's my update. I'm gonna throw my all in this to finish it before the 27 of July... if I don't I wont be able to work on it until December sometime :( but rest assured it will not be canceled. This will see the light of day! Unless of course I'm K.I.A... then it will be canceled.

Indeed I am turning the above into a real game. Don't get your hopes up, though. I am making general improvements, and adding a little to the story. I am working on other projects, so this is just a little practice for me to get used to RMVX. It may be a little generic.

 

 

EDIT: You'll all have to forget about that for a while. I didn't relize that when my XBox 360 partitioned my portable hardrive for a hard drive upgrade, that it would reformat the entire thing, deleting all of my hard work. I know that I have a backup for that game on my other computer, and DWVII-2 on another computer, all my other stuff is almost definatley gone unless it's on one of my old thumbdrives. Oh, Well I didn't know how longer it was going to last, it kept making a clicking noise today (which means it's dieing), but I didn't have a chance to backup.

Look at that King Zenith, I'm not the only one that has misfortune with losing hard work!

 

Edrick The Hero, don't worry about it, it's a good thing you back up your work! I do multiple times now due to my cat...

Ha ha! I believe way back at the start of the whole "cat saga" I made a remark about how surprising it is to me that any RPGMaker games ever get finished. Everyone seems to blow their stuff away by accident somehow.

Actually, i didn't "back up" the files, I just put the files on my portable drive to work on while I wasn't at home and conveniently never deleted the originals. But I did have about 6 hrs. worth of work yesturday that got deleted. I won't be able to get the files back until the weekend at the earliest. DWVII-2 is on my old laptop, which hopefully I will get back today. I can get all of my DQ music back easy, thanks to Woodus and King Zenith uploading them to the den. I also have a few duplicate files for my games on my SD card, but the computer I'm using now doesn't have an SD card slot.

I had dream sequences in the game where at certain times randomly you would hear (well read) different parts of the story of roto in III but I now made them visible scenes like the dream sequence of DQIV.
