Title: Legend of Zelda: The Ring of Light
Post by: OriZak on June 09, 2006, 03:49:20 pm
The Legend of Zelda: Ring of Light

Well, I'm finally bringing it back.
If anyone remembers, I was at ZFGC way back since EZBoard, but got shuffled around and I've been at DSR lately. I used to be MetalRidley, and I released this game about a year ago. I took a year off, and now I'm bringing it back! ;D

I can't remember who made the good tree sprites for me (they're in the demo, but not the screen shots).  If whoever you are reads this, just tell me and I'll put you into the credits ;)

Demos:
Demo 1: http://www.4shared.com/file/1909841/cae08efb/zelda_ringoflight.html (http://www.4shared.com/file/1909841/cae08efb/zelda_ringoflight.html)          Size: 6.98 MB
                  That's the best host I could find...

Beginning Story                                                                   Inside a House

Dungeon                                                                            A field with grass

Outset Island                                                                     Outset Island

Start Menu                                                                         Start Menu

Story:
        After Wind Waker, Link returns to Outset Island with Tetra and they live happily for a few years. Then they get restless and want adventure. They find a bottle that has a letter from a princess in another land. That land is called Dramaria. Neither of them have ever heard of it, but luckily a traveling merchant named Beedle knows where it is...


KNOWN ISSUES:
I will most probably a Demo 1.1 with all these fixed (and any more that people find):

-Tetra's sprite and movements aren't perfect (If anyone wants to help, feel free!)
-Bland backgrounds and title screen
-Bland HUD
-"Waking up" music has no picture (I intentionally did that, but it's boring)
-Cutscenes are glitchy (I'm working on a grid-based cutscene engine)
-Talking to people in Outset (mainly the woman walking around)
-Grandma and Aryll sprites are needed (If anyone wants to help, feel free!)
-Some enemies need to be tweaked (such as in the boss battle when the Babas respawn in the wall)
-Start menu can be opened while a message is displayed
-Swimming in Castle Town (from river)
-Copying files (don't try it)
-Dungeon floor swimming

This list makes it seem much worse than it really is. I think the basic engine is almost perfect, though.
Also, if anyone is willing to help with the graphic problems, that would be great!


Controls:
A, S, D:----Items
F:------------Sword
G:------------Shield
Space:-----Action
Enter:------Menu
Arrows:----Move
Esc:---------Quit

The controls are also mapped for attached controllers, which makes it way better. I used a Microsoft Sidewinder as a basis.

Enjoy :)

I remember this too. Looks good and plays well. Couple of collision issues but I'm sure you'll work those out - keep up the good work.

-Tetra's sprite and movements aren't perfect (If anyone wants to help, feel free!)
If you want you could use this Tetra sprite:

I did it ages ago, just for the practice (she doesn't appear in my game) but I could always finish it at some point.

Not sure if it's feminine enough though...

Looks very good, very good demo. It has a couple of bugs, but other that that it's good :)

BTW if you lift a bot and then walk into the room at the left (see image) and if you then walk back you can swim in the ground and then when you get in the water you can walk on the water ;)

Thanks for pointing that out; it really helps a lot when people report bugs ;)

EDIT: Ok, I fixed that bug.

This game looks really great. I love the Hud. The only things i don't like are the palm trees and the title screen. The trees looks weird IMO. But other than that i think it looks great, nice job!  :)

Oh great. As soon as ZoraFan89 sees this he's going to think it's a ripoff of his game because it's in MC style and has a similar title (Like mine. His is called Blade of Light, and mine is called Blade of Darkness.)
Btw:

This game is propably older than ZF's Blade Of Light. And the names aren't THAT similar. Anyways, i love the HUD, it's very unique. I remember playing the demo long time ago, and it was great. :D

your were very simliar in title... "blade of" "darkness / light" ... when you wouldnt have used the different element "darkness" then it wouldnt have called a cheap copy... and its not very creative when you see all the fangames, your title is bad chosen... there are plenty variants of fangame titles for zelda, no game sound so copied like yours...

@ring of light: oh, you're here now ^^ good luck agaion and *points to own comments from dsr*

I wasn't thinking of his game when naming mine, I've had the idea for that name before I even joined zfgc. And Zora DOESN'T care about the name, he's just tends to get... uh, jealous.

Thanks, that helps a ton! Who should I give credit to, though?

Yeah, but I should probably give credit to Bacon, too. I don't know if dylan wants credit...

I was bored today so I downloaded this game and I must say... it kept me busy for awhile lol, it's a cool game. Keep it up  ;D.

I played it and it's very good. The controls could be improved and there is a small glitch when you end your spin attack while walking.
Off topic: Could I have the spark sprites?

One thing is bugging me... some trees are 1 by 2, but trees look better when they're 2 by 2.

The storyline doesn't quite fit... have you beaten the Wind Waker yet? Because... well, I don't want to spoil it. But they certainly don't live on Outset for a few years.
Title: Re: Legend of Zelda: The Ring of Light
Post by: Obsequious Eye on August 28, 2006, 07:04:36 pm
Hmm... the storyline could be made to fit, if you work a bit on it, and from the screenshots, it appears to be good. However, I cannot download the demo, when I go to the page, I get this message:

Could you see what's wrong? I really want to play this, it looks very good!

yeah, the game does look awsome, and yes, the download is down. I wonder what is being used to make this.

Congradulations to Hero of Winds for the most massive gravedig I've ever seen, 2 months since the last post! I'm so proud >.< But It leaves me to assume that if this topic hasnt been updated in 2 months it is probably dead. With that note: locked.

If the topic's creator wants me to reopen it just PM me.
