Well, it's finally here. ZFGC's first taste of The Legend Of Zelda: The Chrome Ball Chronicles
 
. I put together this demo just to try to get things rolling. There are A LOT of ideas that haven't been implemented and bugs to be ironed out yet. All graphics, resources, etc. are subject to change. Again, this was just thrown together to illustrate a game idea and by no means represents the final product.

This demo is based off of spookymagician's "pinball game engine." You'll immediately see that all I've done is added music, cosmetic changes, etc. Nothing too major on my part; I just wanted to push this project to get started. [I used unregistered GM 6.1 to edit it for those wondering.]

I had planned on taking a screenshot, but I'm having problems with my videocard currently. If someone would want to take one, it would be greatly appreciated!

Download The Legend Of Zelda: The Chrome Ball Chronicles demo 0.01!
here
 (right-click, SaveAs)

For full credit details and the game's controls, press F1 after starting the game. Also the game begins immediately once it's loaded!

Known Bugs:

The ball gets hung up on walls & sometimes the flippers
The ball is constantly bouncing. This sometimes leads to the ball bouncing back and forth in a constant loop, gradually increasing in speed
... anymore?

Known Issues:

The ball's physics could use being improved
If you get stuck, try using tilt (this will not always work and you may have to reset the ball)
There are cheap ways to rack up lots of easy points (ie: ball getting stuck in bouncing loop)
Mixed sprites/graphics
The MC Link sprite is a messy edit. I chopped off pixels so that he would fit into a 16 x 16 box.
The flipper sprites should probably be just a pixel or two longer, but I didn't feel like making the adjustments.
The "LoZ: CBC" title is on the game board itself. I think it's a bit distracting and probably should be moved to an intro screen, whatever.
Like the "LoZ:CBC" title being on the game board, I also have a Triforce graphic at the top of the board that is also probably distracting. I had thought about removing it and instead tiling a pond or something, but never got around to it.

Future plans (I think it would be nice if eventually we could get the following made in addition to the game itself):

An original looking "The Legend Of Zelda: The Chrome Ball Chronicles" title
A support banner
A custom program icon

Enjoy!

ezBoard = Original ZFGC, Original GMC, etc, etc.

Why not SMF? If you simply can't get hosting, try http://www.smfforfree.com or http://www.smfhost.com/. SMF are free, and they ROCK.
The current ZFGC and the last few ZFGCs all run on SMF.

Does it cost?

I'll be picking two co-admins, a global mod and a local mod out of the first five members.
