Coding / Re: Need some outside tests
« on: March 31, 2009, 08:00:15 am »
I noticed just 3 things.
-You can still do a spiderman against the walls
-When standing next to the right wall while facing left (by doing a backwards jump) I can face right unless I first move left.
-If I stand next to the right wall (while first just walking towards it, facing right and not moving) I can't jump.

Jup. Shouldn't take too much time to work these in as well. Thanks again.

And they're implemented.
I guess the credits will have to wait till next time then. I'm sure I'll need plenty of help before my project is finished.

Okay. That's good to know.

I was already updating my program. Guess I'll just remove you for the credits again if you insist.

Wow. That's really fast. Now I actually feel dumb for not requesting it earlier.
Thanks. I'll be sure to give credit.

*in pursuit*
That would be awesome. I've been looking for months now, so what's a little more waiting :)

I've just updated my last post with the link and timeindication. It one of those small things that really makes a difference when you add them up.

There is.

Check at 4:52

It's just 2 or 3 sprites, but it makes a lot of difference. Maybe someone with ripping skills can get them? I've tried to recreate them but that also requires some good skills and spriting also isn't my speciality.

And with that all the sprites I've requested have been posted. Talk about quick.

Good of you to show the message. I'm assuming this is an error that occurs every time a flying tile hits a wall. That would mean the demo was incomplete and it has already been fixed for the next demo. If I am wrong in my assumption, please let me know.

Thanks for your comments.

Niek: Yes, I stumbled across that function some time ago.
Except during transitions only the instances in the current room are active. I thought about limiting this to the view but that has downsides. An enemy who is (just) outside of the view should still be able to act. For instance a guard shouldn't stop running after you if you don't see him. The guards movement is determined by it's interaction with the walls etc, so in the end all the instances in the room are vital.
Currently the entire dungeon room is 2560x3840 (divided in areas of 320x320 or multiples of that). The gamespeed is 30 f/s. So far this only drops during the transitions (slightly), while playing movies/music and after starting the game several times. Maybe there is still something to be won in the handling of graphics/sound/data, but that's just thinking out loud. First I want to check how the game acts normally.

Kremling: Thanks!

Excellent response. I'm glad you liked it.
The function you found isn't really part of the game. I use that for testing.
The problems with the transitions are probably because every room in the game is an actual separate room in gamemaker. So you have the illusion that all rooms are connected and the bare minimum of objects/background is active at one time. It seemed fine, but clearly isn't so I'm now recreating the entire dungeon in a single room. So far the gamespeed isn't suffering (on my computer at least).

In the demo I'll send you you'll see I'm already making a lot of use of depths. Still, thank you for your willingness to help. I can see if the timing of the sounds can be improved, but other than that there's little I can do.

Thanks for the reply.

Somebody made the same remark on the transitions on a different forum and I'm glad you did the same. It means my work to fix it is meaningfull. I'm guessing the problem occurs only on some computers. Would you mind me sending you a link to a newer demo in a couple of days? To check if my solution works on your end.

The roots of the trees are a result of my laziness with the outside area. The outside area will be completely redone when the dungeon is finished, so I didn't put a lot of time in it. I've already moved the movement borders in the next demo.

Please don't get hung up on the numbers. It's my second attempt at a first game so in the beginning a lot of stuff has been redone as I learned more. Also, when I finish the first dungeon I'll consider that version 1, since that's my immediate goal for now. That may not be accurate for the whole, but that's something for later.

Could you give me a little bit more information about the music with the stairs? I'm guessing you don't mean the stairs in between the rooms. Did it sound out of sync? Was the sound incorrect? Or was it maybe something else?

Correct. The file selection screen, name selection screen and options screen have been done in a single room with one background. That way the view can move smoothly between them without interruption.

Maybe I should have mentioned this before, but this won't be a remake. Just (much like the other games on this forum) heavily based on an existing Zelda game. For instance I'm going to be working with subbosses. And I'll definitely get creative with the dungeon theme/mechanics and dungeon items.

The tale starts off with Link as he is living with his uncle deep in the vast western forest of Hyrule. His uncle, a well-known blacksmith, took him in as his apprentice a long time ago. They spent weeks crafting a beautiful ceremonial blade. Elegant and perfectly balanced, it was truly their best work to date.

It was announced that princess Zelda would soon be of age and wed, so a festival was at hand in her honor. They packed all their belongings and set out for the city with the intent of presenting their blade as a gift.

Upon arriving at the borders of the city of Hyrule, Link and his uncle encountered soldiers everywhere. By decree of the king anyone coming to the festival looking the least bit suspicious was to be arrested. Carrying his blade, Link's uncle was apprehended. Link, being left behind, followed the soldiers into the city.

Link started asking around if there was a way to help his uncle out, but found that no one was willing to help. Everybody was reluctant to even speak with him. It was as if they were all scared of being arrested themselves.

Several soldiers passed, escorting princess Zelda. Link recognized her and attempted to get her attention. The guards took note and stopped him from getting closer, but the princess stepped in and quietly spoke to Link: "I do not know you, but you should not ask my help. I am but a mere prisoner, waiting for her arranged marriage..."

Little options were left to Link. Something had to be done...

* The project has been going on since 2008 Q4 and I lost the teamlisting 2013 Q2-ish so it's possible that I've missed somebody. Let me know if that is the case so I can give due credit!

  Received suggestions 

While most suggestions make their way into the game this is a listing of the ones that I'm still pondering on or have decided against implementing.

Put "timer" on bushes and grass to limit rupee farming ability
Great idea and will be looked into when game is nearing completion. For now I view the demo as a semi-sandbox so I'm okay with rupee farming.

Fire from the Firerod (and Lamp) should be able to burn bushes
Pushed back for a later demo due to time restraints

Implement purple rupees (50),  silver rupees (100), golden rupees (300) and rupoors (-10)
Takes time so will have to be planned
==> From demo 22 onwards the game will contain a golden rupee. (It's missable and extremely hard to get but still)

If you have any other suggestions then feel free to post them in this topic or contact me directly.

  Known issues 

Some keyboards are unable to register the following key combination: Left+Up+G
If this situation applies for you and it bothers you then you can alter the controls in the option screen (found on the starting screen).

If you've found more issues then please report them in this topic or contact me about it directly.
