So this week I *completed* the new cucco enemies that were originally plan 2 years ago (including angry mode). But then I remember that you could also pick them and throw in the original so I'm still pondering on how best to include that feature. Still, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. Also, in my game you can turn cucco's into undead cucco's and visa versa with magic powder (cause I felt like it). And a very select few humanoid enemies can even be transformed into cucco's with the powder (cause I thought it was funny).

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.22.144 (24 januari 2021)
* Finished scenes for bringing hostages to target locations

* Fixed collisions between bunny beam and trees

0.22.146 (26 januari 2021)
* Fixed pots not spawning over bunny beams anymore after bunny beam update

0.22.147 (30 januari 2021)
* Fixed error when freezing cukeman
* Added ability to switch between cucco types with magical powder
* Finished new enemies: Cucco (alive / bone version)
* Added abilty to turn more enemies into cucco's (with magic powder)
* Cleaned up block pushing code slighlty

0.22.148 (31 januari 2021)
* Adjusted movement script fairies (also used by various enemies) to prevent terrain collision issues
* Adjusted anti-faery movement to auto-correct endless movement loops (slowly)
* Started work on ability to grab and pick up cucco's

What about a Cucco Catch Sidequest/Minigame like the one in Minish Cap?

and another idea: Cucco Gliding, like the Minish Cap Function where you could glide with your hat from cliff to cliff in some regions because of gusts

Adding a cucco mini games sounds like fun. I'll look it up and take it under consideration for demo 24.

The engine isn't quite ready for gliding just yet. Maybe at a later date.

A little bit of bad news - good news:

The bad - To my surprise Gamemaker forced me into the latest release ( = I can't return my project to previous versions). The plan was to schedule march/june to make that transition and deal with the fallout, but I guess that's been pulled forwards. :(

The good - Gamemaker improved the automated transition and I can at least launch and play without instant errors. (The upgrade attempt last year ended in a nightmare). There are a number of visuals issues now (likely due to a specific outdated feature I was meaning to get rid of anyway) and I'll still have to comb a massive number of scripts, but it looks WAY better than expected. XD

So all in all I'll have to postpone finishing the latest dungeon for now. At least untill the most glaring visual hickups are dealt with. I'll also release the current state after the weekend for those that want to help with bughunting new issues after this update.


EDIT: Uuuhm. Found out why I didn't remove that one outdated feature earlier. It's used literally thousands of times. Welp, it's going to be long weekend. XD

As stated, here is the current state after the gamemaker update. It took all weekend going over tons of scripts but I'm hopefully optimistic that the game is fully playable again. Based on past experiences I was honestly expecting this thing to take closer to a month so I'm really happy about it. Haven't had time to also playtest though, so if anybody finds any kinds of new issues be sure to let me know.

@Miles07: In regards to your feedback and bugreports: the results are in here too except for two outstanding: the underwater prison dungeon alternative order (=which I'm still thinking on if/how to handle) and the underwater prison dungeon diving collisions (which I haven't gotten around to looking at yet).

Wasn't feeling great yesterday evening, so a delayed progress report.
I'm not entirely sure, but I'm currently suspecting the Gamemaker upgrade created new issues beyond my earlier estimation (= I suddenly encountered an array related error when destroying pots/grass  - which makes no sense since Miles07 tested that not too long ago). :huh:

Thanks you for your continued support!

Note that the game crashes upon destruction of grass and pots so be sure to save often. Also, picking up containers has a similar issue (=found late last night; also already fixed on my end). Sorry about releasing it in that state. I was unaware.

And here it finally is: demo 23 is out
I've playtested the game from start to end this weekend and all known errors and game breaking bugs have now been fixed.

After this I'll likely take a little while to just tinker around before setting a new scope for demo 24. The poll has the graveyard cathedral as the highest so that's something I'll take a serious look at. Also, I have some more boss ideas and might still further improve the mines and mansion dungeons. We'll see how it goes and what your feedback will be.

Download
Demo version: 0.23.00
File Size: 24,27 MB (Zipped)
Screen Resolution: 320 x 240 (Changable)
Download (Mediafire): https://www.mediafire.com/file/1a3ovts2ic2vfsb/Zelda+0+23+00+(public+demo).zip/file

Differences in v23 compared to v22:
Added a fully finished new dungeon: Mining town
Added new boss and (custom) NPC's to starting area
Added new 8 enemies (including Cucco's !)
Upgraded to latest version of GameMaker Studio 2
   (and spend months fixing the damage)
Items and enemies now effected by water / pits
Added special ore and pressure plates
Added conveyor belts to transport items through walls and to other rooms
   (conveyor belts now also effect items and can change directions)
Added scene at the end of the game
Added a ton of fixes, tweaks and smaller additions
