PSIV: Beneath a New Light. (I'M BACK...with a bang!)

Discuss/post fan stuff (images, fictions, games...)

Thank you for splitting the post, Benoit. And er... Wing... 'purdy'? What does that mean? :? And no, I wasn't under the impression that you hated me, Wing, it's someone/somebody else, but I won't point fingers.

Anyway, back to the game topic:
- Chaz's death scene is a very significant moment in the game, and plays a [i]very[/i] important role much later. It also shows another side to Alys' personality, a side that was never shown in the original PS4.
- There is a fair amount of profane language in the game, but it only happens during really intense scenes, because I figured too much foul language can put people off, especially if it is used for no good reason.
- I don't know if I've mentioned this, but Demi, Raja and Kyra will be playable as well. :)
- Expect plenty of plot twists. But my lips are obviously sealed.
- I might include alternate game endings.

Purdy = Pretty said in a childish way... Dunno who I picked it up from...

I understand your reasons to kill Chaz, I'm not telling you not to off him, but I'd prefer if you didn't. I think there can be many ways to develop and show Alys' personality than a death... But that is just my way of seeing things. This is your creative effort, and as such, I will respect the direction you take with it.

Now excuse me as I go take a nap... I don't just have a flu, I also have a throat infection that ran towards my inner ears, and screwed my equilibrium system... I've been walking around like a drunkard all day, and believe me... It sucks ass...

Any feedback or critique? I know there are a ton of minor graphical issues, but I need to know anything game-breaking or so, whether I should keep the difficulty as is, and so on.

Updates:

- Gryz's Warcry skill has been reduced to cost only 2TP, and the bonus is that he will recover around 10-15HP per round, as long as WarCry is active.
- Alys' Crosscut has been cut down from 15TP to 10TP per shot. Chaz's CC costs around 8 TP.
- Vortex is much stronger now. Buffing Alys with Shift and Vision will enable her to do some pretty big damage to a single foe.
- Added an item called Eye gene, which removes Blind from an ally. ( The most annoying status in the game, I assure you. It renders all techs and skills useless.
- Changed the windowskin.
- The battle command will resemble PS4's, with icons replacing the text. :wink:
- I am in the process of removing the horrible white outlines that appear around most enemies. See below screenie.

Image
See, no horrid outlines now. :D The beveled edge on the left hand side means the game is paused.

Image
Changed the menu graphics slightly so it blends well with the main windowskin.

Image
Level up window with new windowskin. As you can see, the Bioplant is quite hard.

Edge, is there any chance that you can perhaps code the battle command window so it resembles Generation's 2? Hope it won't be too much of a bother. :oops:

The next release is all up to me, huh? I'll do my best to try and mimic generation 2... I wish to god I could get a second to myself and have some time... I'm tempted to download RMVX on here, and try to sneak in some coding... Seriously tempted...
I've traveled back in time... 300 years... Just to call you a "Cracker"!

Yeah, no pressure. :lol: I understand it is possible to convert RGSS2 to RGSS. But I'm not going to hurry you, not really. :wink: But if you can pull it off... then it will be just wow. :o

And I will revere you. :lol:

Some updated screen shots: Still in the process of bug-testing. The new demo will be extended to seven or so hours and will feature additional Hunter's Guild quests and will end with Zio's defeat. That will mark the end of Volume I. I'm going to split the game into two Volumes, because when the game is eventually finished, it will be close to 300mb in size and a pain to upload. It has been done with another game made with RPGMaker XP.

Image
Brand new title screen. Recognize the insignia? :wink:

Image
Updated status window.

Image
The main menu has a larger font now.

Example of some cutscenes: Widescreen format.

Image
Confronting Zio head on!

Image
Red alert! The space at the bottom is for the message window.

That's it for now. :)

What's the Phantasy Star Online icon doing in a original series Phantasy Star fan game? There's an equivalent for this series.
Get Xenoblade Chronicles!

I forgot to mention that I'm paying homage to all the PS games in this fan game, except Universe and Zero/Portable. Some dungeons are based off PS2's design, and there's music from both PS1 and PS3 in the game. PSO's stuff only features much later in the game.

Plus, PSO's icon makes a cool title screen. :wink:

Some updates on the demo in progress:

-Size of the game has gone up from 115 to 167mb. :(
-Completed the towns of Monsen and Termi.
-Added two new areas called the Central Plateau ( you have to navigate through it to get to Molcum) and the Taliesian Forest, to get to the Valley maze.
-Added several new scripts, though I still have to test them out.
-Rogue Sandworms commision added. You fight DesertLeaches in that battle. It's hard as hell, but pays handsomely, 10,000 meseta. :D Quite high for an early game Guild quest.
-Redid a few maps.
-Rika's artwork is finally completed. All I have to do is colour it, then I'll get started on Demi's sprite and her artwork.
-Expect mass hilarity in Termi. :lol:
-Alys' mentor Galf makes a cameo appearance in a flashback scene.

Some new screens.
Image
I'll never look at Demi the same way again... :twisted:

Image
The decrepit village of Monsen. Why does it always look like the old farts are staring at Al's chest?

That's it for now. 8)

Question, do your monsters attack with an animation?
