By the way, is it very hard to add side-quests and new maps now? I mean, can you store everything in archive and only put it in RAM when needed? Or does it permanently take more RAM? I remember that you had issues in the past with low RAM because you were adding more maps.

I can store everything in Archive, but I still need to keep them to seperate AppVars for some reason. Even though the whole AppVar isn't loaded into RAM when reading its contents.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok. I think multiple appvars are fine, considering the extreme 84+CSE RAM limitations (under 22 KB user RAM)

I've sent out 0.66b to all of our testers. The thing I'd like to hear feedback on the most is the new player damage algorithm. I've tested it some, but maybe not enough. If you think the character is doing too little damage or too much, let me know. Obviously, I'd like to hear all feedback you have though.

This time it will take a while before I get to test, because WabbitEmu decided once again to corrupt my savestate (it freezes on startup) so I have to restart all the way back from the beginning for a 3rd time >.<

EDIT: Nevermind, for whatever reasons it started working again after about 3 emulator restarts. (I also had to reset, quit the emu then reload the state)

EDIT: I'm thinking the new damage formulas might have made at least world 4 way too difficult. I am level 15 and it now takes 3 hits to kill all enemies instead of 2 so I am unable to get to the final boss without escaping from every battle. And it takes forever to level up at this point.


Also the new encounter rate is way too high. I run into enemies every 5 step or so sometimes.

Also When I warped to River Lake, I first appeared back inside West Pole, then in an house, then garbage map then I had to try warping again in order to land in River Lake.

Ok, I'll make damage growth a little higher. And I never modified the encounter rate ??? I'll look into that. And I'm still not getting those errors with warping, but I'll take a look at that part of the code as well.

@123outerme here is a major problem with Uvutu v0.67 fix 2 and the original 0.67: The thing you told me about having to manually fixing my save for compatibility will not do anything to fix it:

Quote* Doubled (or at least nearly doubled) save times. Unfortunately this breaks your save unless you fix it like so: Launch SAVUVUTU (the Save Editor included in the zip), and go through and type the exact numbers you see in these slots, except forget the decimal: Slots 3, 6, 15, and 16


I followed the instructions as described, yet I still get an ERR:DOMAIN error upon game loading. I tried running the first one that had changes first, so that I can update a second time after switching to the fix 2 files, to no avail.

In other words, I am unable to continue playing. Mind if I send you my save file so you can fix it yourself? It's from v0.65 or 0.66 and I really don't want to have to restart again from scratch >.<


I'll PM you a download link to my SAVUTU.8xv file. EDIT: Thanks for the fix


-By the way, in the area south of River Lake village, I notice that the path to the left is open. Is that normal? Just making sure.

-I also like the speed improvement during walking. :)

Thanks! The speed improvement is a fairly small change, but I'm sure it makes a difference. And the path to the left is supposed to be there, I just haven't made the map that goes after it yet :P

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah I think the speed improvement is noticeable. And thanks for the info (and future walkthrough secrets advice :trollface:)

I actually misread what you wrote. Now that I've lied, I might as well and try to make it the truth :P

DJ Omnimaga

Lol /me smacks 123outerme :P

Maybe now that it isn't secret you could just put in a large :walrii: statue there and have a secret item located there on the map (invisible chest?)

Maybe, yeah. Also there really should be a confirmation to the karma actions because I'm on my phone and I accidentally -1'd you again. Maybe Street can take the -2 you've accidentally gotten from me away.

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah I need to do something about karma buttons. We added text to space them up but I don't think it appears on mobile. I think I'll just enable post rating reasons and see if I can add warnings


And yeah I got about 4 accidental downvotes or more <_<

Yeah, hopefully Street'll remove those.

By the way, progress has been slow-going since most, if not all, mechanics have been implemented. All that needs to be done is map creation, and one can only create so many maps without going insane. I don't want to ask anyone else for help either, since they'll be familiar with their map(s) when the game releases. There's not a lot I can do except truck on. So I've made a few more maps and fixed up the issue with the one under the beach town, and added some treasure chests. I don't know how long it's gonna take to finish World 5, but I hope I can get it over with soon.

DJ Omnimaga

Good luck 123outerme. I'm glad to see this back in action. :)
