The game has grown quite a bit in size tonight. This is the result of the final battle aftermath being implemented. In the original game, once you beat the final boss, Yam says he got him, then the game ends abruptly with the worst possible ending imaginable. However, in the remake, you're still not done in your quest yet.

So yeah, the ending is underway right now but I cannot share much due to spoilers. You learn about Yam's origins, though.

A new job has been added as well, which lets you use all 4 first jobs simultaneously in battle (basically, all 16 magic spells, split between 4 options in an extra menu).

Once the final battle is 100% done, I'll be able to finish the entire ending, which will be short but at least present. :P And I still need to test the optional dungeon for balance issues.

Game is now 23.3 KB with 6 sub-programs (soon to be 7). This should end under 30 KB. With just elements from the original game this would have been under 20 KB easily, but the new additions and story expansion led to the file size skyrocketing. Hopefully people won't mind if they want a calc RPG.

Also due to the way the new map engine works, I could probably implement even more stuff such as NPCs or map objects if I wanted to. I would probably just need to use decimals in the map data with iPart and stuff.

Also, for the final job that lets you use all magic, it will only let you use a set of magic if you have the job that they come with. For example, if you skipped the 4th game boss then you will not be able to use the 4th magic set.

Just as an head up: archived calculator files still takes RAM. So even if you do a RAM Clear before installing the game, you should still delete some archived files like GB ROMs and unused highscore appvars so you have enough RAM to run the game. It's kinda like with Gemini 3D right now, but not as bad RAM-wise. I'll see if I can fix this in future builds.

How much RAM? because the only thing i can think of that''s using RAM is the VAT table

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

Me too, IIRC it's only for referencing them in the VAT.

Snektron

Yeah and that takes only like 14 bytes per item or something like that. Hard to fill your whole ram with

Yeah, but one penny unspent is one penny earned.

Dream of Omnimaga

Yeah it's the VAT that is the problem. Unicorn had like 150 sub-programs, appvars and other files in his calculator archive, which is why he didn't have enough RAM to run the game even after a RAM clear.

But don't worry, I just fixed that issue now. Here comes Version 1.0.1 :D

Changelog:
-All sub-programs renamed to shorter names. Please delete the old ones.
-Now only 1 sub-program has to remain in RAM (MF.8xp, which used to be MFCH.8xp)
-There is one more sub-program now, resulting from the split of the menu and battles.
-Ending text is now faster.

Hopefully this should reduce RAM issues now.

Das me!
I actually deleted all of my files, and I still couldn't run the second and third dungeon. :/
