So guys we did it, we fixed Zero Gear Fighters

This may be a surprise to you all, but I have actually updated my first publicly released game, Zero Gear Fighters. I originally released this game in 2015, and since then have grown a lot as both a person and a gave developer. As the game still stands, it's still crap, and will always be crap unless I remake it from scratch. (which I plan to do after Meteo Chronicles)

However, I CAN make it LESS CRAP, and the first step is actually making the game playable. For some stupid reason, I deleted the previous version of the game every time I made an update, and even more stupidly I deleted this piece of my history from this site. This caused previous versions that ACTUALLY WORKED to no longer be available, forcing people who didn't already have the earlier versions (which was probably about 200 people worldwide) to play the broken version 1.3, which was 100% unplayable past the second dungeon due a mapping/eventing error.

When I got a new laptop in late 2018, I couldn't transfer over any files and instead has to work from scratch. This meant that any of my old games before the original Generic RPG Quest III were lost to time. (and the switch over contributed to getting GRPGQ3's files corrupted, but that's a whole other story)

However, I just thought of something today while browsing though google images. "Wait, I have both Zero Gear Fighters and Dragon Ascension on RMN. Maybe I could download the EXEs in order to get back the files?" I did so, and it worked! I immediately started on fixing ZGF to at least the point that it was no longer unplayable before releasing the new version 1.4 up on this website for any curious soul to enjoy all it's cringe-filled content without issues.

Right now I'm still working on Meteo Chronicles, which serves as the first game in the "Chronicles of Chronicles" series. The trilogy that it's in, the "Meteo Saga," serves as a hard reboot for my first three RPG Maker games: Chronicles of Light, (unreleased, files are possibly lost to time) Zero Gear Fighters, (recovered via RMN) and Dragon Ascension. (also recovered via RMN) Right now I'm working on v0.2 of Meteo Chronicles, and after I finish Meteo Chronicles I will work on Zero Gear Chronicles and Ebony Chronicles after that. Hopefully I will be able to finish Meteo Chronicles before the end of this crazy summer. Stay tuned!
