An early progress report this week. Due to some work/corona/house related stress I started working on something completely different to let of some steam: a new dungeon, the mining town.

You can find a VERY early draft in the attachment. Don't worry, I'm not on drugs! While it may look like abstract art, I always like starting this way (with paper graphs and sketches already made) because it's fast to start general outlines and the messiness gives me lots of unintended new idea's while I'm working on it. Also, I image it can be fun for onlookers to see things slowly start making sense over time.

The things I was working on (=the cape and rabbit beam) will be completed in a little bit (=next weekend hopefully) and then released for playtesting.

Tried out the sprites and gathered feedback. We ended up settling on a mixture between both approaches.

- Turns out the backview swaying worked a little less in motion. Also: highlighted bunny tail = cutest, appearantly ::). I did try out some hybrid images but with the same result. Maybe the frame count is just too low to do the swaying justice.
- For the side view people liked your sprites way better. We only made a few edits near the shoulders and added some light shading.
- For the front we went for 1 pixel for the shoulder and 2 for the swaying.

As for colors we ended with the bright red again because it popped most with the other tunic color schemes.

I really like the detail on these. Very well done.
Was the entire game intended in this spriting style?

Those look quite good. Thanks.
I'll try them out with various tunic colors later this week.

Thanks for the reply.

1. I do use a palette, but it's a PC project so # colors is not much of a consideration. That said, I'm only using the red (and white) because it's from the original attlp cape. Maybe some complement to pink would work better (like in the green - blue range)

2. Agreed.
The red version is actually also comprised of two colors, but I see that I really need to add a larger difference between the two.

3. I agree that it would look and feel better to add such extra animation, but it's just slightly above my skillrange. XD Maybe I could make it work for the side views, but I'd have no idea how to start with the back view. (Also, I'd like to keep that little bunny rear sticking out from under the cape).

Just a little post to ask for feeback and/or improvements, since I'm not all that great at spriting.

I'm trying to create sprites for the alttp bunny while wearing the alttp cape of invisibility (to add a bunny transformation cape). Check the attachment for the results. I've been trying out a few things for the backside, but I feel like there is still room for improvement.

Yes, there is a master plan in regards to the story.

Some parts (like the intro and scenes between the mansion and dark world) are thought out in more detail but I'm limited by my shitty spriting skills so making new NPC's is very time consuming. Also, Gamemaker wil soon release a 2.3 update which introduces Sequences which will MASSIVELY reduce scene creation times. (It does take a few months to properly convert to it though).

Currently still thinking about how to improve that last boss some more.
Also I FINALLY succeeded in making a true palette swapper shader for Link to cut down on future development times (but that's not something you'll notice as a player).
And I'm now starting work on the semi-last usable item: the Magician's Cape. As in: doing research and prototyping. It'll probably be several weekends of work before that's anywhere near finished, because I have to take a lot of Link's states and other interactions into consideration.

(Also I'm pondering about overhauling the menu structure to add overworld maps somewhere in may/juni)

I'll likely post an update by the end of the weekend if there is anything significant to show.

Good to hear about the boss.

So for the other feedback is:
- add some more challenging to the placeholder dungeons without a boss
- add more story to make sense of it all
- add more hints to find the tougher dungeons

What dungeon haven't you found yet? Or can you screenshot your item menu? So I can add some hints for that one in a future demo.

And here is a download with the new boss in it. Call your new character "boss2" to warp directly to the boss area. (Naming your character boss1 for the Helmasaurus fight also still works). Just stay inside the buildings untill you get the crystals.

NOTE: I'm not fully happy with the new fight yet, so feedback is more than welcome.

Yes, all crystals should be in there. I could give you hints if you want.

(Currently working on releasing a BETA of the new boss btw, hence the quick reply. It should be downloadable in about 3-4 hours or so).

Just to temper expectations: this new boss isn't in this one yet. It's coming, but I just had to other stuff this weekend. Being couped up in social isolation for (over a month I'm guessing) was starting to wear me down a little.

And no problem if you continue your feedback. I welcome it!

In regards to bossfights before the crystals: It's mostly a matter of time. Each new boss takes me a few months to build fully so I'd need to add repeating fights. I'll look into it after the latest boss is finished.

Just a quick update:
Finally found and fixed both issues. Thank you for reporting them. It motivated me to not be lazy and just keep looking for the root causes.

The shop thing ended up happening because you reached 999 rupees. That must have been in there for over a decade now XD.

The chest game chances have been toned down. It's now statisticly a money sink instead of money maker.

The water thing I've partially patched. The game detects you wanting you transition into the water (because you touch the deep water, which is correct). The problem is that the game does not (yet) detect you walking over a corner of the water rectangle and thus returning back on land while in the transition animation. So I've added a check at the end of the animation that returns Link to his default state if not in deep water anymore.
EDIT: Nevermind. Also fixed the swimming in solid floor fully. (That earlier half-measure was bugging me).

I'll upload a new demo in about 3 days time after I finish some more things. If there are any other bugs to fix, let me know.

Here is the newest version.
The helmasaurus was fixed. I might have fixed the rupee issue. The swimming issue I haven't been able to reproduce yet. So far it seems like a random glitch.

I'll upload a fixed demo tomorrow morning.

The helmasaurus fight is now fixed on my end.

About the buying thing: did you edit the rupee values in the savefile? I don't mind, it just sounds like your rupee value is actually far above 999 behind the scenes. If you hacked your file then I'll just add some failsaves to let you continue playing on.

For the swimming issue I need more information as I have no idea how you ended up swimming/diving over at that location. What were you doing in order to get there?

Sorry. I'm unable to recreate that issue so I can't fix it yet.

Does the money counter go down after holding up the item?
Do you hear the sound of the paying rupees?
