Currently still working through the SAGE observations and feedback. Had a case of mild food poisoning so it went a little slower then I'd hoped but it's progressing. Hopefully I can finish up next weekend, so that I also get back to the new cathedral level soon as well.

As for controller support: I had to return my cheap testing controller earlier because of buttons failing. So I'm putting that on hold for a little while until I get another (fixed) unit. Well, I might still work to expand the options, but it's a little too risky to release something without any testing.

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.25.12 (7 september 2021)
* Added scene for when you bring Florine to the underwater prison exit room
* Corrected overlapping water visuals in underwater prison B3

0.25.13 (10 september 2021)
* Upgraded to latest Gamemaker versions

0.25.14 (12 september 2021)
* Game now asks for confirmation before closing
* Added little reward to the “arrow in the knee” joke statue
* Added map goal indicator after beating the mansion
* Added beter NPC guidance in front of the mansion (directly after beating the intro cave)
* Made the chasing soldier AI slightly less efficient (to make it easier on players)
* Fixed scene not triggering in the mining town, when bringing a second hostage to their target location from the left

Interesting. If moving the stick to the right is the only controller issue you have, then it might be related to the specific controller. Since moving the stick down is handled exactly the same in code. Maybe the game's set to sensitive for some (used?) controllers? Hmm. I'll have to read up on this. I'll see what I can find out during the weekend.

@All: Does anybody else have this, or similar, controller issues?

1. This has always been the case. You want me to (add an option to) keep it at 3:4 by adding sidebars? What specific screen size do you have?
2. So the problem is that moving the stick to the right means that Link doesn't stop again?

Demo 25 is out below
After SAGE 2021 I've been taking a little bit of time to hotfix and tweak the game further before releasing this updated version. You'll notice that the game now has autosaving and native gamepad support. Enjoy!

SIDENOTE: I'll add more settings (and clean up the added options layout) in demo 26. First I'm looking for player feedback on how this iteration actually works for their controllers.

Demo version: 0.25.11
File Size: 25,61 MB (Zipped)
Download (Mediafire): https://www.mediafire.com/file/reoml9ix5lwxd4d/Zelda+0+25+11.zip/file

* Added a final boss fight
* Added 2 new enemies: variant bat and variant wall master
* Seperated damage stats for thrown objects and for bounced back projectiles
* Fixed all known errors
* A ton of tweaks and fixes

Additional differences in v25 compared to SAGE 2021 demo:

The more information the better.

No worries.
If all goes well then I *should* have controller support out by the end of this next weekend as well. Though I only have a basic model lying around to test with, so different models migth still take a workaround if they use different standards (like the Switch Pro controllers do apparently).

And here is the latest progress report.
Also, the SAGE expo is now "over", so I'll be taking a few weeks to comb through the available livestreams to tweak and bugfix. Overall I'm quite happy with the results. Though I was a little surprised that native controller support was such a mandatory thing for some people to even play. (Guess I was a little out of touch on that one). Also: Zelda fangames get featured far less (most of the week) because plenty of streamers seemed go down their lists starting with A. Go figure. Maybe I should rename my game to "A link to the past fangame" next year instead. XD

EDIT: I hope to release a hotfix demo by the end of the next weekend. That one will be made available on this forum again.

And here is the final tester demo before the SAGE event.
This is just a quicky update for demo and testing purposes. In short: The final boss has been included (without intro scenes - for now), an error is fixed when trying to  swim without flippers and the depth system has seen some updates.

Found a major issue in the demo so I'm pulling it. I'll release a patched version in a few days.

Hello all.
With demo 24 now out I have decided to focus on adding more bosses. Starting with the final boss (cause I felt like it). And later getting to the cathedral boss (cause the cathedral dungeon design centers around getting help for that fight - so it needs to be stable before adding actuals rooms etc).

Vous devez l'endommager suffisamment jusqu'à ce qu'il se retire. Ensuite, vous utilisez le net. Faites cela 3 fois.

Le combat est essentiellement un jeu entre amis jouant à faire croire. Mais il triche les 2 premières fois. Faire des excuses pour lesquelles il n'a pas été "vraiment" touché. Comme la « personne » enfantine qu'il est.


You need to damage him enough untill he retreats. Then you use the net. Do this 3 times.

The fight is basically a game between friends playing make belief. But he cheats the first 2 times. Making excuses why he wasn't "really" hit. Like the childish "person" he is.

Peut-être que les sites de traduction sont médiocres, mais je ne comprends pas de quoi vous parlez. Pourriez-vous le décrire différemment. Peut-être que cela peut aider.

Maybe the translation sites is poor, but I do not understand what you are talking about. Could you describe it differently. Maybe that can help.

"Spoilers" for the fasttravel points:

Vous utilisez la flûte devant les oiseaux (= debout sur le bloc de notes de musique devant). Après cela, vous pouvez utiliser la flûte pour fasttravel à ce point. Dans le monde sombre, vous avez besoin d’un élément différent pour activer le point de voyage rapide.

You use the flute in front of the birds (= standing on the music note block in front). After that you can use the flute to fasttravel to that point. In the dark world you need a different item to activate the fasttravel point.

And here is the inbetween release: demo 24 is now out

You'll find the new worldmap and ocarina (birds) at the start of the game. Aside from that some time has been spend on streamlining the mining down dungeon (based on the earlier feedback).

As for the next steps, I'll likely first finish adding the final boss and move on to more bosses or the voted on graveyard dungeon. Also, I'm cautiously looking into setting up a kickstarter to turn this into an original work. Maybe set a year from now, if the game is received well enough within the SAGE event. I don't suppose any of you already have experience with the business side of kickstarter and/or indie development? (As in: setting up the company, advertisement and selecting suitable hires)

Demo version: 0.24.00
File Size: 24,85 MB (Zipped)
Screen Resolution: 320 x 240 (Changable)
