I was a little too tired to add commentary yesterday, but the focus last week (and next week) is on polishing up the existing dungeons and bugfixing. To add a little development variation before going back to new content (and other plans). So if anybody has any unmentioned feedback about the existing demo, feel free to share so that I can consider it as well.

Finally adding some more visual indicators to the cannonball puzzle in dungeon 1 btw. Almost everybody I see recordings off seems to have trouble grasping that one somehow.

Technically it's more of a temple, because I'm not aiming to include religious imagery and so forth, but yeah. As a dungeon setting. Together with the graveyards outside.

PS: Also working to maybe turn this into an original IP in the future (via late 2022 kickstarter).

Well done! It looked like Jirard really enjoyed the game. And you came across as very professional.

As an aspiring future indie dev myself: How did you come into contact with the people at IndieLand?

And here is the latest news:
I've pretty much fixed every known bug this weekend. And now I'm trying to figure out how to best add in the new enemy/mechanical variations I wanted to see in the next cathedral level.

Aside from that, the rest of the time has been spend expanding the design document for future developments. I do apologize if the progress reports become a little bit shorter in the coming months. I've found that commisioning art takes a lot of prep work and reference materials, so I'm taking my time with it.

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.25.22 (9 oktober 2021)
* Started work on new enemy: Cathedral Cyclops

0.25.23 (16 oktober 2021)
* Increased minimal jump distance for ledge jumping from bridges / elevated platforms (for more consistent gamefeel compared to jumping of walls)
* Fixed door to the final boss not opening
* Expanded snd scripting to remove sound stacking for container destruction, item collection (and a few specific other cases)
* Fixed issue where you would spawn in a pile of stones if you entered the area from a staircase beneath that pile and then died before entering another area
* Fixed issue where Link looks to be frozen while pushing some of the outmost corners of masking rectangles

0.25.24 (17 oktober 2021)
* Moving platforms now have a little delay after moving (to allow easier getting on/off)
* Fixed moving platform residual movement effect on character at end of paths
* Made slight progress tiling new cathedral level

Thank you very much! Reading this after a long day at work really made my day!

I'm actually preparing to make this a legit game with fully custom resources. Just need to find one (or more) affordable spriters to round out the team and hopefully next time (in about 8 months from now) there will also be a kickstarter demo for you to check out. ;)

Just a minor update this week. Mainly I've added gamepad options to set the button/stick deadzones (=% you need to activate controls for the game to register).
@pxl_moon (dotyue): could you check if changing the deadzone values fixes the stick issue you experienced? (We can at least rule it out as a cause).

Hi OtherBlue,

Welcome to the forum.

For a walkthrough of the mining dungeon you could check out this playthrough:
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1131276659?t=01h01m24s

Alternatively I'll give away where you can find the different keys (in order):
Show content
1. In central cave; kill all the enemies and activate the conveyor belt
2. In the town center enter the restaurant, walk over the outside walkway to find the chest in the broken house a little left of the center
3. In town area carried by soldier in upper right
4. In the town top middle grab the key on a bookcase in the library
5. Inside the mines, in the room where you bring the children is a chest down the left staircase.
6. Inside the mine where the gaurds are patrolling is a chest with a key on the top pathways
8. The chest in the broken chicken farm in the south of the town
7. Inside the mines (B3 - lower right corner of the map) is a room with rolling pins and a key at the end of the path. Bomb a wall to access that room from the north.


If you are still stuck afterwards let me know which keys you were able to get so that I can dive deeper into the issue.

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?

Zelda Projects / Re: Alttp - Horn of Balance (demo 25 out)
« on: September 06, 2021, 05:15:43 pm »
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)

* 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

Additional differences in v25 compared to SAGE 2021 demo:

SOME NOTES ON THIS:
– I´ve being playtesting with the one gamepad I own that actually works on PC. Different brands might require a different mapping so if the button layout feels off for you, please let me know what brand/type controller you are using and what buttons you feel need switching on it. 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.
