Ah I see. Maybe it should be renamed to reflect that it's a power up?

Also I got your PM. I'll give the new version a try later.

It's possible that I would. It'd be pretty easy. I'm not sure what I'd rename it to though.

DJ Omnimaga

You might want to check what they're named like in Final Fantasy. Perhaps also change the icon to a red up arrow? HP-Up, MP-Up, ATK-Up, etc, seems like good names. Also, later in the game, perhaps an XP Boost or something that lower the requirements for next level ups later in the game, that would be harder to find.

Maybe I'll do that. But for right now, I'm gonna work on finishing maps and a different side project ;)

DJ Omnimaga

Do you plan to finish all maps that remains to be done, then the bosses/events?

Also I am sorry, I didn't have time to test the new version yet. D:

Yeah, that's usually how I make a world. It's fine that you don't have time to test the new version. Since the xLIBC command I use to get numbers to strings in Ans don't work past 9999 or with decimals (and I need one of those two to make saving work), I'll have to revert back to the old method of saving. Depending on the situation, it could work, but not all the time.

DJ Omnimaga

Oh, by making all the maps I meant the rest of the game, not just the next world. I was wondering since your other post said you would finish maps. :P And sorry to hear about the saving issues. I think it's fine, though. Just take a look at how long it took to save in Illusiat 13. :P

Also the 9999 limit is why First Fantasy experience system was replaced. In Mana Force 2002 you needed like 900000 experience points for some levels, but in FF:MF it's 9999 max.


I'll see if I can try the game tomorrow or tuesday. Do you plan to make it an open beta in the near future, by the way?

Maybe as the game reaches its final stages (maybe 1 world left, small features missing, little sidequests, etc.) I'll open testing up. But while big changes that could break the game (case in point, this one) still need to be made, I'd like to keep it more private. If I do need to make large changes in open testing, I'll probably take my calc with the latest build to math class, then if I find it bug free, I'll release it :P

DJ Omnimaga

No problem. I was suggesting because at one point I noticed that some people kept saying they lost interest in the project because there was no public beta available after so long. Which suprised me, considering most calc projects don't have a beta available until like the very end (Escheron, for example, took half a decade before having a beta).

Many thanks to DJ Omnimaga and this sick Sorcery of Uvutu Walrii!

Dudeman313

Cool! Maybe I could use that to make a Reuben Walrii. :P

I wonder if you would be able to fit it in the game as an easter egg if you still have enough sprite space after adding all the side quests and perhaps more graphics? Perhaps it could be added only as an inline sprite rather than a full sprite sheet, to avoid wasting 8 KB just for 1 24x27 sprite.

Dudeman313

Imagine a CSE owner, playing this awesome game right until the final battle, where their character suddenly transforms into a walrus. :P

DJ Omnimaga

That would be weird. :P I think it would be better to keep this as a joke for less serious games. It could always be an enemy but I doubt anyone wants to have :walrii: as a monster in their games. :P

Dudeman313

Yeah, because in order to make :walrii: a monster, you'd have to figure out a way to make him scary instead of cute, but still recognizable as :walrii: . That's nearly impossible.

DJ Omnimaga

Who says he doesn't have to be cute? It could be a trolling monster that does weird attacks and is immune to lots of stuff. :P
