I'm not sure if what I just downloaded was a project file or not... but I'm required to have MF to try this. I thought it was a demo. Forgive me if it was stated that this isn't a playable demo.

I double checked the file and it does have a playable exe inside it:

Zelda GBC Engine 1.0.exe

Also the icon should be a chest, if that helps.

Pretty solid engine, though some of the items are not yet finished. Nice work so far.

 However, my only urk is with the graphics (unlike most people, I am not a fan of LttP graphics.)

Thanks for the comments. We're hoping this release can generate some interest in the community so that we can recruit some more programmers. Then we should get all the items done! With the graphics we're sorry they weren't to your liking. Now we must kill you :)

I know all of that. But each time I try to run it I get a "ForEach.mfx" error.

You shouldn't be getting that error with an exe. I can understand if you are opening the mfa and have that problem because the extension probably isn't installed.

Firstly are you extracting the file before running it?

And what operating system are you running?

Also I suggest you re-download the zip file. It may be corrupted.

I re-downloaded and the same error pops up. Not sure what the problem is. And yes, I am extracting all the contents.

My OS is windows XP 32bit. It's an older computer but I have played games made with clickteam software before.

Hmm, try running the exe as an admin.

If that fails I suggest you update your DirectX (which will update your C runtime library)

I was actually pretty impressed.  I actually like the coloring quite a bit.  Looks like with a few adjustments you could do a lot with this.  There were a couple of glitches/bugs/graphic issues I ran across though.

-If you have your sword equipped on z and your boots equipped on x then you can't do a spin attack.
-The mask for the fire created by the fire wand is too big.  Make the collision mask smaller.  The fire wave collides even if a tiny corner touches something.
-The sprite for the boomerang plays way too fast.  It looks like a flying box
-The song played by the blue ocarina sounds really bad...  sorry

Don't mean to be pessimistic, just trying to help.  Keep up the good work!  :)

I don't have MMF so I am not able to look at your source code. But I was wondering about the engine. Every action/weapon that Link can do/use is that hard coded in your engine or can I easily remove any action/weapon by removing 2 or 3 lines of code?

@Aero88

Thanks for the bugs reports, we'll definitely work on those.

Also I agree with the ocarina sounds. The quality's pretty bad actually. They're just placeholders until we get someone to mix them.

@Niek

I wouldn't call it hard-coded however it is sometimes hard to fully take out an item action/weapon as it may be dependent on others. Taking out the main code for an item/weapons should be easily enough though and sometimes the other code that is dependent would likely not be functional.

Makes me want to get MMF again.  Used to use that and Games Factory all the time.
Looks nice.  I may download the demo of MMF2 again so I can take a look at the source.

Damn I wish I had your skills. I still struggle with coding on TGF/MMF... :-X
Honestly, I can't actually code. I just take a really long way to do something basic  ::) And just test and test and test endlessly.

Pretty well made. Some minor bugs. Like the ones mentioned, but also when moving to another screen while having the shield out, it kind of hangs in place while the screen slides.

lol same here, Game maker can be a real "you know what" when it comes to certain functions, despite knowing most coding.

I am moving or have moved this to Zelda Coding as it is not a Zelda Project but a Zelda Engine.

Zelda GBC Engine V1.1


Doubleteam presents the newest update of our GBC engine. V1.1 brings a few updates that kills some small bugs we overlooked in our excitement with V1.0.

Some updates in this version are:

-Fixed an issue where equipping both the sword and pegasus boots at the same time disabled the spin attack ability.
-Fixed an issue where dashing into a solid with the boots while between two solids would push Link into the opposite solid.
-Fixed an issue where the menu could be opened while scrolling.
-Fixed an issue where Link's movement would bug up if opening the menu while moving.
 
We are hard at work on the engine still and we are making fast progress. You can all expect V1.2 very soon.
Here are some sneak peaks of V1.2.

OK thanks again for your help DJvenom we added you to the credits for the readme for Version 1.2. We have been wondering where those sprites came from and have been trying to find out who to give the credit. Jeod had the sprite sitting in a folder and forgot where he got them from in the first place. Also Jeod wanted me to attach this and send it your way :D He said to ask if this is your updated version?
