Since this is taking place in a bigger place than where prologue takes place, I'm going to need to make more Hunter Characters, since the game takes place in the Central Base, and it's an exam for at least one Hunter from across the game world's globe. This....is....going....to....take....awhile.....
Yesterday, I released a pre release version of Final Arena Mode for Memorie. I played that version myself, since I'm a one man developer with no testers that are close to my living space. Anyway, I realized that the mode had a major bug in it. It wouldn't let you go back to the last map with the character and map select event on it. Afterwards, I fixed the bugs in version 0.02, which was a quick fix of this bug, and added the ATB Bar. I also made a windowskin for this mode.
Anyway, another pre release version (v0.02) of Final Arena Mode and Memorie Part 1 Demo will be shown in the Downloads List, via Mediafire link to save space.
It's not complete, and there are other characters to put in there, but I added the 3 characters that were in Prologue, excluding Cid and Kado. It's also not encrypted, so you can add this mode into your own games.
Just so you know, Prologue isn't a Part it's a demo like piece that links to Part 1 in its own way. I decided that this will have about 5 long parts of the story, but... there might be more if it's incomplete. alright, that's all.
2012 was looooong for this title, literally. It had 1 year in development fro Prologue (including all the betas). Now Part 1 is on hold, due to break, and I'm not ready to start on it yet. I have been doing bits and pieces though, just not anything major yet. Anyway, apparently the dating game implement sounded fun, so I decided (for specific male characters) to add effecting choices you can make, while Akiko is in the party. After all, If you seen the ending with Kado in her room, there might be something about the look alike. Heck, maybe another visit?
I also ran out of ideas for Alt. Outfits for the character, probably just a block in ideas, but who knows? Things might change. Right now the only Project: Side Clash implement was the PC interaction, which was pretty basic for now till something comes up. Speaking of PSC, that's being made into RPG Maker VX ACE with a different title, that's all I'm going to say.
I do hope in 2013 I'll get more than just a part done. After all, I don't give up that easily. I might ask some RPG Makers from the site to have permission to add guest characters from a different game, which will end up like a side quest. Again, I'm not quite sure yet, since I don't know their personalities and I might spam the crap out of the creator for help. Anyway, Aki, the guest character in prologue, will have a game soon. Like Cid said in the game, there will be another game in the mix.
Well. Better get started, see ya!
I think.... I might need help with maps. Anyway, It's probably not a good start but what the hay? Here's the current count as of 1/1/2013.
In Prologue, there was this idea for Akiko to have more than her Normal Outfit, although the boots are a bit big anyway. But now I have ran out of ideas. Part 1 is going to have some more Outfits than Prologue while keeping the ones you have, but I just got a blank. Anyway, I'm open for suggestions and will try to match the picture/description as I can using what I know for Sprite ripping/editing/Frankenspriting (whatever it's called).
Okay. I better get to sleep, this is the second time I posted something at 4 in the morning.
Yeah... Bits and pieces of Part 1, where the official beginning is going to be (prologue wasn't going to be part of it. That's why I forgot the credits).
Anyway... Here's what's going to be added....
Specific choices will have some sort of dating game thing to it. I decided to add this little gimmick to just see what happens when players figure out which specific male character can fall in love with Akiko, for lols.
There's some new Abilities, and some edited ones. one of those abilities are the Accurate Eyes. Accurate Eyes just Boost the user's DEX and Hit Rate. The Accurate Eyes are a Akiko only Ability.
Since the release of Prologue, some content was missed, for example some dialogue, graphics that were edited and haven't been imported, etc.
This Patch will patch things right up, with no Beta problems.
This will fix:
Game Over Screen, which was edited for Final Part release
Manual, What Manual? - Challenge Arena typo
and some more fixes, like some conditions where Aki joins, and needs to be taken to.
