Everlong is a FREE amateur fantasy game designed to capture the charm and cliche of the classic SNES JRPG. You are a Blackguard, a knight sworn to serve the Cirigoth Empire and trained in the dark arts, yet hunted by your imperial masters after turning renegade. Only through enlisting the aid of friends and allies can you escape pursuit and defeat the oppressive Cirigoth regime. Journey across the world's continents to forge a confederacy and fight for freedom in global war. Yet a more insidious plot looms in the shadows. A fallen god seeks to exploit civilization's folly and reclaim the dreams and nightmares of humanity.

The linear story of Everlong is accompanied by numerous side-quests. It also focuses heavily on puzzles, dialog, and battle strategy.

New Version 3.35

The downloads section has been updated with a new full version and patch. Mostly bug fixes, but the controller support is sweet for those of us using Xbox controllers with Windows (thanks to PepsiOtaku for that plugin). Here's the update notes:

Everlong v3.35 (2022.01.16):

Added controller / gamepad support with a DynRPG plugin
Shinryu skill Atomic Breath no longer scales with physical attack power; resulted in extreme damage when auto balance mode toggled ON
Restored conditions removal effect for certain healing skills on their final tier: Succor, Celerity, Chakra
Added message when recruiting Miyagi to explain EXP and Encounter scaling turns off
The first Altair battle no longer results in an instant victory if monster scaling is active; an HP reference was missing for this monster in the scaling code
Attempted to address boss battles being unintentionally skipped outside Story Mode if the control switch was somehow otherwise toggled
Attempted to restore possibly corrupted database value for Virtuoso items that prevented the player from equipping them
Corrected MAG+ value for Mystic Pendant accessory
Siren activated battle in Cerulean Silex and Ignis Castrum against Naga Archer no longer crashes due to null event page references
Keen Skill Scroll Blink now shows correct skill reference when queried with SHIFT

Unfortunately yes. It's been difficult to find play testing time. I will eventually make my way through the game.

While players are waiting, I'd suggest having fun with another old school RM2K3 game that received a fantastic update and was just released: Ara Fell by Badluck
....man i can't wait for this update i really liked the game but the scaling bugged me namely how enemies would not be encountered locking your level at areas (I know i said this before but i just wanted you to know I'm still watching this game and am super happy to see you are still working on it)
I know it maybe a long time till the update is out but boy oh boy will i be a happy camper when it does come out :)

Shouldn't be too much longer. As today is the end of June, I'm obviously going to miss my goal of completing my test play this month, but I'm close to 3/4 done.

Players will have the ability to turn off all scaling, use the auto balance feature, or adjust enemy difficulty themselves.

With the rebirth system, hitting maximum level no longer matters, so even the default scaling allows plenty of powering up before reducing EXP and encounter rates.
Sweet still i feel a little bad for the people that liked the old scaling i mean i don't like it but i also know some people like level scaling too....mixed feelings are mixed :/

the old scaling is still there, you just have to select it in the options: it's customize-able.

The host restored it. I locked the forums and may curate the site rather than permanently remove it. For now, RPGmaker.net is the official host that I'll be checking and updating information on.
Sweet the game update is out now to try it out umm if i run into any bugs were would you like me to tell you about them?
Will this kind of sucks i have no music for the game...Any ideas of how to fix this issue i know in the old game i had music...odd

Hmmm... I didn't have this problem. Music is playing fine for me. Try downloading and installing this:
http://coolsoft.altervista.org/en/virtualmidisynth

That should fix any problems with the midi/music files not playing.

It should also be noted that some parts of the game don't have music,like most if not all of the intro. did music start playing music when you left the prison cell at the beginning?

Hi thanks for trying to help but i will be honest i have NO idea how to get this program to work like it says i need soundfonts and there seems to be a ton of them i don't know if you know how this thing works if so maybe you could tell me what soundfont i will need and how to get it to work with everlong. If you can't i understand but if you could help that would rock.

Oh dear, sorry for not being clear! adding soundfonts isn't necessary, once you install it, it should just play the default soundfont on your computer. At least it should.If it isn't:

1) download this soundfont: CLICK HERE

2)open virtualMIDIsynth

3)click the soundfont tab and then the plus on the right

4)add the soundfont you just dwonloaded

5)make sure there is a check next to the box of the soundfont you just added

6)click the 'apply' then 'ok' boxes at the bottom of the virtualMIDIsynth folder

...and that should do it. the music should be playing for you now if all is well. you are running on windows right? I forgot to ask you about your OS...

Ok thanks it worked i now have music!
I had to download the file for some reason but after that it worked :)
Umm does anyone know if there is a way to turn off the little gauges over enemy heads? I mean it's not game breaking but still not a fan of them :)
It appears the chocobo search minigame on the forgotten continent doesn't work properly and by properly I mean not at all.
Pixi's door after the Asper Volcano is broken too
Oof. Gonna have to take a break from this for a while. Just had a save error in the East Tower...my next closest save is right before Willis and Vixen join up.

What kind of save error? Is it something that DJC can address or is it a case of not making frequent backups?
