Title: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Momeka on March 21, 2017, 05:48:43 AM
It's been a while since we finished the last one and my fingers are kinda itching to do a new one. This is mostly just an interest check, do people feel like or have time doing another chain game?
Been thinking that maybe we should keep a next one shorter, since people usually end up having to do multiple chapters anyway. So maybe have 3 - 4 chapters in total depending on how many are interested. Which should also maybe not take a year to finish.

Also since it's sorta on topic I can post some stats from the chain games on the charas itch.io page (https://charas-project.itch.io/). The games got a total of 74 downloads, 54 of them being Wrath of Gaia (not really sure why, maybe fantasy rpgs are just more popular). The Charas page also got 7 followers.

Anyway, how do people feel? Is it time?

We're doing it

Tool: Rpgmaker 2003
Setting: Modern

Makers:
1. Momeka
2. Fisherson
3. Donut
4. Moosetroop11
5. Prpl_Mage

Right, I was going to start a thread in January but life happens.

I made a whole bunch of charsets with your contest winning sprite as a base and one okay tileset to get it started but forgot to backup the steam folder when my old computer started crashing. (I use a software called Aseprite for spriting through steam, and mainly only use the steam version of rpgm2k3).

So I got nothing, and that one thread I was going to start was about what we wanted to do since my plan went up in smokes. But that plan was 5 chapters total instead of 10 to shorten the time as you also mentioned above. Maybe you can get the honor to start the chain game this time to set the theme?

I should have some more time no, so this feels fine by me.

Never been in a chain game, that could be fun. I'm quite busy making puzzles for THW, but I sure can pause that a bit, that would be a welcomed pause to refresh my mind :)

3-4 Chapters? That sounds too short for a three act story and really good characters to emerge but the Big Z wants a spot! If only cuz I want to make a one instead of playing them all the time! Do we have any idea on the theme or are we going old School like the first one and just following a group of random thugs roaming around and not sticking to one setting or character type  :P I ask because I like Supernatural things in my games as my main go to, but if pushed I can step a little out of my comfort zone.

Another Chain Game? Finally! Hmm 3-4 chapters would be dumb though. I mean I know why you want it to be released sooner but the stories are getting more and more complex. I personally don't want to take a step backwards. Our plots, parties and even systems have been evolving slolwy. I don't know if we CAN make a simple small game anymore. I wanted the winter Chain Game to be that but eh I was doubtful it would have less than 8 chapters somehow. Either way I will sign up, if only cause I've done everyone to modern date and I love doing it, but I will NOT DO THE END. -_-; Juno's Odyssey nearly killed me on that ending and I'm still fixing it off and on.

Which reminds me, Red, I didn't know it was YOU who put up that Juno's Odyssey Page I found online away from the forum! Good work that and I love what you did with both titles in that link. Maybe we should add Lost and Found to that list sometime?

I really donít see how a see how ďcomplexĒ stories is a good thing for a chain game. Since the chain games are unplanned and the makers just do from what they interpreted by playing a more complex story would just lead to more plot holes, contradiction and confusion.
That said I really donít see why you wouldnít be able to tell a story in three chapters, if people can tell stories with a 10 min short movie or 50 page book Iím sure we can tell one with three chapters. Hell, thereís people telling their stories with shorter games than what a three chapter chain game would be.

That said though, I'll double it, this chain game is six chapters long, so there is one free spot open (don't do math early in the morning). If all spots are filled feel free to sign up anyway, I'll put you on the back up list and you will be contacted when someone drops out.
Also Fish, you're last for now, check if anyone wants to trade spots with you. Or I can move you down if someone have to drop out.

As for settings, we done fantasy and sci fi so itís time for a modern. It will be kinda 90s inspired with some fantasy creatures thrown into the mix.

Also I've started on the game, going to try to finish it as fast as I can but it's probably going to take a week or two.
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Prpl_Mage on March 23, 2017, 01:40:52 PM
Yeah 5 chapters is more than enough. Most old plays are 5 acts after all.

And being last in a chain game is kinda messy since you need to try to tie everything together, all the plotholes created by the previous chapters that weren't answered by the next person. Which is okay of course for a chain game, since it is an unplanned cooperation between different parties.

And  hints, setting and ambiance is sometimes more interesting than a complex space opera

Also, remove me from the list for now. I'll jump in if people drop out, otherwise I am happy with supplying help and resources for this one since I flunked the start

Arrrrrhhh! Don't wanna be last again. TTUTT Zolty! Trade with me and I'll make you sprites! Help you wish understanding MV.....I'll make a freaking cameo of Proud Mary in the Dentverse AND Evenstar Saga! Hazmana! I'll do free advertising for you on my DA! Anything but the final boss and tying it all together.

I suppose you are right. =/ I dunno I just struggle with small stories. Tis been a bane to me trying to write. It's why I was shocked when I wrote such a simple start for Juno's Odyssey. Ofcourse we all know the end didn't work out that way. ^_^; And I see what you mean. The longer the story goes the more chances we have to step on one another's feet. -_- Alright I'll try my hand at a shorter game.....after I kill Zoltar and steal his spot. X3

Yeah 5 chapters is more than enough. Most old plays are 5 acts after all.

o.O Didn't know that. then again I'm not big on the theater as much as the movie theater. Mostly know Shakespeare through the Simpsons after all XD

I was kinda hoping to be done by Sunday, but yeeeeeah, no way that's going to happen. Been mostly just hammering away on graphics but it's really time consuming. So I'd figured I try to ask for help. If you want to help out or are just bored and feel like spriting a bit, feel free to make a character or two or ten. Draw whatever you want, I'm not looking for anything specific, just characters to populate the world with. Now the game is a modern setting so bonus points if it isn't all armored knights and wizards.

You don't have to be signed up or anything. Anyway feel free to join in. I'll make sure we get some credit thing in the end of this one for everyone helping out.

Here's the template for male and female characters:

Here's some npc I already made, feel free to dissect them, reuse parts or recolor them:
(http://i.imgur.com/WfRcOo8.png) (http://i.imgur.com/TGMytt7.png)
I'll post an update version of the female npcs once I finished more of them.

Here's the colors I used (if you use asesprite it's "edg32"):
(http://i.imgur.com/MWaNrPL.png)
You don't have to use these, but they're guaranteed to match the ingame graphics if you do. 

Just post what you make in this thread and I'll add it to the game.

Are you sure? There will be plenty of finished resources to work with and if you're missing anything just ask me and I'll whip something up for you.

Yeah. I thought about it and my gane demo is almost ready! I'm mondo excited to see it done after so long just working on it.  _sweat_  I'm not going to give it up for free though. >:D. Fishman since I'm doing this you owe me one on my game AND you have to put Proud Mary in the game somewhere. Doesn't have to be playable BUT she must have some lines. Acceptable?

Those sprites look nice!
I'll try to do something tonight with them. Do you already have an idea on the plot and main characters in general? I'm just wondering how you guys work on chain games actually, each community seems to do it differently.

In the past we gone in completely blind to it, but if people would prefer a summery of the story in chapter 1 I can provide that.

Also, I had time to make a countryman chara yesterday. Not quite satisfied with the hat, but I couldn't make it look more satisfying to me

Agreed, Zolty. ^_^ But before we get too far ahead of ourselves....My RPG Maker 2003 and tried to import some sets I made after fomating them and pasting them to the sheet provided....it said they were the wrong size. o.O So I tried to import the ones you had already made and it gave me the same line of BS. -.-;;  Anybody else having that problem?

Yeah, f'ed up the number of characters in the sheets. Never use the importer, don't know if they need to be full size.  Anyway, here, filled up the sheets:

Looks great, Donut. I've added it to the game.

Progress report: Sorry, not going as fast as I usually am with these thing. I'd say I'm about halfway done with the chapter but I also want to take time to do some extra chipsets and stuff just so there are materials to work with. Combined with me having to work a bunch of overtime this weekend I'm afraid it's gonna be at least another week before the chapter is ready.

Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Fisherson on April 01, 2017, 11:29:56 PM
Okay I made a few myself. I rather like this simple and yet expressive style, Red. Nice job designing it.

The top most are, as you can plainly see, finished sets. The bottom ones are ones that are either single direction or WIPs. X3 I'm most proud of the the evil clown/ring master type guy. I made him from an adapted 'fat' temp. I also made some black Charasets cause you know we've never had any in chain games hardly. Playable, NPC or enemies even. o.o; I thinkthe first technically was one of Sally's pirate band who's name I forget. Also did me so I can be in our Convo Box or maybe just sort of standing on my own chapter title. Whichever works really. And yes that is a ball gag and latex mankini. =P

I'm so close to finish it. Working on the final scene and then I need to add some sfx to another cutscene and it's done. My goal is to get it to next person by sunday, it should give me sometime to do some extra graphics as well.

I want to let everyone know that I've received the game and played it (really nice work Momeka) but that my health issues atm are holding me back to work on it. So it might take a bit longer than I hoped. Luckily I got a week off so maybe some rest will do me well.

After being sick for a while, I'm now swamped in catching up to work. I was hoping to find some time to work on the chaingame, but sadly I'm too tired to work on it. It would work a lot better if I get to work on it in the summer, so I want to swap spots with Donut. Lemme know.

Sir Momo always makes a cool opener from the ones I've played so far. Granted that's just 1,3 and 4 but I asked Fishman and he said that technically there's only three because the second one died in mid design or something and only a demo of the first chapter existed.  :o Weird.

Hey guys!
Bad news for me today. After 6 years of loyal services, and 3 days of randomly freezing for seconds, my MacBook died yesterday and is impossible to reboot or anything. I've tried many of the solutions to those problems suggested by Apple, without any luck. This means I am unable to finish my chapter of the chain game. Customer services will need about two weeks to see what they can do, but it seems more than likely that I'll have to buy a new computer. Unfortunately, the Mac died during a backup, which fucked up my backing hard drive as well, making it unusable. I can still provide plot and design ideas I had for my chapter but that's about it :( I hope either the Mac will be replaced or fixed (cheaper) by the end of the month, but until then I am afraid I can't do anything :( This comes even more as a hard hit as I need the computer much for work use (guess I'll have to use one of the shitty Ubuntu ones that Uni has...) And that I don't have much money for a new laptop atm...
Sorry about that :(
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Momeka on June 02, 2017, 05:34:42 AM

Noooooo! I'm so sorry for ya, Donut! It sucks to have your computer blow up and take your chapter with it. =/ A terrible first Chain Game experience but hey it could be worse! You could be like me and kill one by taking too long with your chapter till there's nobody to take it. ^_^; Looks like it's up to me then! I'll just need to get to a wi-fi source, buy ME:3 and NOT PLAY IT!! XD At least till I'm done codding a chapter so good it will be heralded and envied!

....Or at least not contain a fifteen minute crawl that has very little to do with the game. <.<

After Fish would be fine. Support was faster than expected to tell me the computer was definitively dead (I'll get it back to harvest usable components for one of my friends), and I ordered a new one (Lenovo Yoga 510, better than my macbook pro - not too expensive so that I could afford it) which should arrive in the upcoming weeks.

Okay so I played through and I freaking loved it! ^_^ Just got to wait till Donut responds with what he did before I decide to proceed but I'm drawing up alternate scenarios while I wait and tweaking the skills as there were none for the heroes and I'm actually pretty decent at that. Tomorrow I'll do some real work though hopefully!

It locked me out....I'm not even sure. Sometimes it does freeze which is what I thought this was. Just a freeze cause I could get in but none of my icons but Skyrim would work. It's weird. I request an additional two days past my deadline even though I likely won't need them. I was just writing the last two cut scenes there likely were to be needed. Honestly my hard codding is down to one mini game, a few keys to open the last dungeon door and monsters. My final boss is done and I've play tested to balance it even. Managed to beat it on level 7 with all the right gear.

That's fine. Like I said I'll go to a wi-fi source and try DLing the stuff I bought and see if that unlocks it since it was working fine until I bought some games on the Steam Sale so logically that has to be it. XD I'm not too worried ....unless this fails....Then I'll just send it on and mark the game as cursed o.o; One weird incident? Coincidence. Two? That's a curse.

Oh I have a reason for not letting much get me down. Life steps on me and I push...FORCE PUSH!

*Force Leaps up with his eyes closed and tackles the big, metallic beastie that is Steam slicing it to ribbons and taking the game back and holding it aloft screaming primaly as an image of Devon, Jack and Juno appear behind me lifting their various over sized and over powered weapons up joining in. Past Chain Game villains sigh and go back to the drawing board...*

 It's working again and I got a better idea for my puzzle now that will make it even more infuriating. =D So it's off to work I go...and something about ho's!

Well that's sad but unavoidable. I'm sure you'll get to work soon...just don't pull a Fisherson like he did when he kept the game and never really did anything....till the desire to work on it died. *Shudders* Haunts me allot to this day. It's why I tried to do shorter chapter this go around.

Post by: Momeka on August 08, 2017, 05:11:00 AM
I had an idea, I'm not sure how feasible it would be but figured I'd do a small interest check anyway. How about doing another version of this chain game? Chapter one is more or less the same (story would be the same but would like to redo some level design just to mix it up a bit) and then we basically start another run. In the end we can see how different or the same the games turned out.
I would like to keep it smaller maybe three chapter total. Another limit would be that you're not allowed to sign up for the same spot you have in the original.

But yeah, Charas is small and most people interested in making a chain game is already doing the original, I dunno, what do you guys say? Are you interested in something like this or are you burned out on chain games for awhile?
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Prpl_Mage on August 09, 2017, 12:44:32 AM
Sounds like a cool idea, but I can imagine it becoming quite stressful, especially now that the first version has been delayed some.
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Moosetroop11 on August 09, 2017, 11:02:26 AM
So a sort of 'how different two games can end up from the same start point!' sort of thing...

It does sound cool, and I'd get on board if everyone did, but my part hasn't happened yet so I'm assuming I'll be busy with that at some point

Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Fisherson on August 10, 2017, 11:43:11 PM
Hmm the experimentalist in me really wouldn't mind doing two two different simultaneous games at once but the realist in me questions what would be the point. The same story only different levels and LESS content? Meh. I would more be curious if you were to take the point when the protagonists broke up their party and then have it so that one of them was made the hero instead. That would be worth exploring or if you have game that works like Undertale where the whole thing just resets and something changes, only instead of some NPC or a phone call it could be something big like a level or an extra plot arc or choice you didn't have before! Man that would have been nice.

Though again I'm not sure it's worth it to possibly take energy from this Chain Game currently in progress. Especially until we see if Doctor Ace gets his chapter done. Which reminds me I will not let this one be DOA. CCG2 I couldn't save but this one ....will not die.
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Momeka on August 11, 2017, 03:06:02 AM
But it's a chain game, in the very nature of it it won't be the same story. Someone else will intrepid what happens in chapter 1 and what should happens next. Then someone else will build on that. I think they will be vastly different. As for it being less content I don't really mind, personally I prefer shorter games. More doesn't automatically equal better, mostly just a bigger chance that I get bored and stop playing halfway through.

I'm willing to give it a try if there is enough people up for trying. If not that's fine, just thought it could be fun.

Edit: As for it would kill the original game, I highly doubt it will affect it at all. At the most some schedule conflict but I'm sure it won't kill everything. If this one would finish first I would also hold if in releasing it until the original have finished.
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Zoltar on August 11, 2017, 08:48:27 AM
It sounds mondo intriguing to me, but I wasn't in this one at all so my gnarly opinion doesn't matter too much right?

As for the "More Cotent=Equals More Fun"  thing I'm going to say that depends on how hooked I am with the story. The first Chain Game 'Lost and Found' was fun but I didn't want anymore when the story was done, maybe a sequel or something with a new game ya know? But it was enough and because it's compact I can replay it easily and enjoy it all over again without too much comitment. Wrath of Gaia on the other hand I would love to have seen more content from in the game. Even though it's a looong game with loads to do it always feels like there could be even more time with those characters...but it does take sooooooooooo long to replay.  _sweat_ So I see what Momo is saying there.

As I went through this topic and saw the graphics I was thinking about Mother 3. The art style resembles Mother 3 for me and that the game takes place in a modern environment (am I right?) also resemble the Earthbound series. I never played Mother or Mother 3 but I liked Earthbound. Now I am playing Wrath of Gaia and I enjoy it... okay I have to admit that I almost had a rage-quit-thing at the end of chapter 3 while trying to escape from that damn theatre XD but aside from that I really enjoy it. :)

Ok I received and played.
A few comments. Fish, your chapter is buggy as hell xD The end especially, after beating the African guy especially, black screen and nothing happens.
A lot of the passabilities don't work well, interactions with events as well.
Many typing mistakes as well, sometimes I don't quite know if they are intentional or not?
I'd like a recap of the story you tried to build as well because the explanations in the cave made little to no sense to me?
Other than that, the first part was easier than the first time I played it, which I thought was good, but I still think the enemies do too much damage, or the party not enough? Thanks for adding some skills though, it was needed imo.

I think I'll carry on with the initial idea I had, twerked a bit, after you sent me that story recap Fish xD

Not a bad sprite, Orka! I am glad to hear somebody is still playing Wrath of Gaia too and don't worry we all rage quit that chapter at least once. XD If not seventy times. Moose is excellent at having a good brain busting puzzle in his chapters of any chain game but the first I think...I wonder if Moose actually did make a chapter? *Checks* Nope! =O Interesting! Oh and Orka if you go to play Juno's Odyssey  I would wait until you've gotten to at least the end of WoG. I'm working on a Director's Cut of JO that will be ten times better than the version we've got now which is missing side quests, has some annoying bugs and spelling errors.

Aww for Dr. Ace
Yeah that's all good for me :)

Traditionally you should address me in a PM so I can not reveal spoilers to the whole thread =P Yer a n00b though so I'll give ya a free pass and just address the stuff here:
Buggy stuff: Yeah I know there's a few minor bits though I must admit I didn't realize there was one in the african guy's cut scene o.O PM me and tell me which part specefically if you didn't fix it and I'll try and see if I can find a simple bandaid for ya. As for typing mistakes: they go woth the job son. I'm here working on JO: The Director's Cut three or so years latter and guess what? There's spelling and grammar issues in chapters I KNOW I checked. -.-; Tis something for the last guy to take care of in double checked final play before release. Just get the ones you want to or not. Doesn't matter.

On the Cave: That whole scene was explained by the characters. -.- Seriously I didn't half *** anything this time for once just stringing random things together.  Piece A connects to Piece B it's just the glue might give ya a little trip if you catch my meaning XD I always use ridicilum and craziness when writing just about anything. Example:
Wrath of Gaia my chapter was set finishing off what Moose laid down then you jump a huge monster and find yourself entering some kind of weird Myan temple thing chasing pirates. =P Just how I roll. I assure you Chain Games used to make ALLOT less sense, the first hero being a Samurai who always got lost and carried a giant axe for example. Lmao That being said I'd be happy to brief ya on the story plots I was building but honestly you can extrapolate in any direction ya like. ^_- Tis the beauty of a Chain Game. There's no wrong way to do it!

Post by: Donut on September 18, 2017, 02:48:37 AM
Well the most I spent time on was doing a bit of extra resources, but most of them are just re-colours to be fair. I Have spent an entire week procrastinating as well, and another one figuring out what style I was going for, so out of the three week I had the game, I effectively worked on it only a week. I'm afraid the chapter won't be so long compared to the two others, but who knows, maybe the puzzles will be more complicated than I thought :)
Graphics-wise I have to do the intro, and some faces (although I might drop some faces for non-important characters). Other than that, just eventing.

@Fish: don't worry about it too much, there's already plenty of characters to do, and I found everything I wanted so far. :)
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Fisherson on September 19, 2017, 12:35:52 AM
Well I did say in my post in the message room to maybe only use facesets during 'cutscenes' and to minimize using them outside of big cinematics and such unless it's liek the save points and stuff. ^_^; Come to think of it I should have made call events for those. Would have been easier on the player. I am glad you found plenty of useful resources and don't need any and hey if your chapter is short but sweet no worries. The Chain games haven't always featured constantly unfolding chapters in the past and we are trying an experiment to see if we can beat the calendar this year after all. I worried I added too much potential story but I am terrible at writing something small. Still at least the point A to B setup I used was the smallest in my Chain Game career and mostly worked better than previous models, even Juno! X3 So a small mile stone can in fact be counted quite well. Quality over qaunity. I'll be honest though I kinda wish this story wouldn't end. It's really oddly so....empathic. It feels warm and yet with tinge of dark tone that suits it's Indie game look. Plus ya gotta love that party! <3

Ok. So it's official, I hate computer.

Bad news, for some unknown reasons, Windows 10 decided that RM2k3 was a threat to the computer, and refuses to launch it again. I thought I managed to solve that by reinstalling RM2k3, it solved it for 30 seconds. Any exceptions on my firewall, antivirus or anything hasn't done any sh*t, so I can't finish the last few things I wanted to do. And since now I'm unemployed, I have no work computer to be able to deal with it.
Fortunately, I almost finished my chapter, as I have one common event to write (which is like a minimap and teleportations), remake a picture, add sounds, and I was planning a less abrupt ending scene. I can easily add the remade picture and sounds in the folder without going through the software, but I cannot do that last common event nor change the ending. So I'm stuck there. I can easily describe what was the plan (where to put the sounds, what was going to be the last sequence (I can actually just ditch that and make it more cliffhangy that way), how the minimap was working, and give a walkthrough for testing), make the image for the minimap bit, but i think that's about it :'(

Now I'd like to know WHY computers HATE ME SO MUCH?
I'm so very sorry, I am so tired of all those computer bullsh*t

I think this chain game might be cursed.

Have you updated to the latest version of rpg maker? Cause it seems other people been having the same issue (https://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/17752/?post=832031#post832031) with it. There's no way to like white list it in the anti virus program or temporary turn the anti virus off while you work on it?

If not, send it to me and I'll see if I can do the last things for you.
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Donut on September 30, 2017, 06:21:13 AM
No, I haven't, I have used the unofficial version and 1.10. Both come with the problem. The official version doesn't have updates for the standalone version so I can't try on 1.11 or 1.12.
I've tried white listing, and w10 refuses me to turn off the antivirus - actually w10 has a built-in antimalware that it doesn't allow me to turn off either. I have literally no idea how to fix it. I remember it happening on my old w7 laptop, but I don't remember what happened after.

Donuts chapter is done and I've sent the game to Moose.

Also took some extra time to try and balance the fights a bit in chapter 1. Fish, I had to change some of the resistances you had set up. Cause Joel was completely immune arcane damage while Sam took 3x the damage. Since most enemies in chapter 1 uses arcane attack it kinda messed up all the fights. Also I'm not sure if those elemental multipliers might be a bit too high, I had a really hard time trying to balance around it, cause either you did waaay too much damage or you did waaaay too little. But I didn't want to change them in fear of breaking your chapter.

I'll do my best to be snappy with this, and keep you updated. I'll have some free time over the next few days so I'lll certainly be able to play through at the very least. I actually know barely anything about the game so I'm quite excited!
Title: Re: Another Chain Game?
Post by: Moosetroop11 on October 12, 2017, 07:17:06 AM
I ended up biting the bullet and buying the steam rm2k3 rather than shoving all the rtp in the files like I did last time.

So far so good! By which I mean I played Momeka's unbelievably awesome, I've payed money for worse games chapter. I especially love the secret spellbook, and the opening sequence.

I was a little way into Fish's chapter but innocently wandered into some water and got an instant game over, and since it'd been so long since I'd saved I ragequit : p I'll get back on it in a bit; I have today off work.

There are a few irritating bugs I might fix, whilst I'm here.

But yeah, opening, setting, the feel of the game, amazing.

UPDATE:

Ok, Fish. The fish are insanely strong. Please can I make them weaker? You've made it clear that you're supposed to fight them to get treasure but I've never been able to defeat a single one.

Something to note, there's a limit to how much text you can have in a message box that's not reflected in the actual limits in the editor. If you like, I can go through and try to sort out the dialogue where the text cuts off, because half the stuff you've written cuts off and you can't actually read the last word or two.

EDIT EDIT: Also requesting permission to make the log pirates weaker. How high were your characters levels when you could beat them? I can't actually imagine a player ever managing to do it on any reasonable level. Or are they just supposed to be completely unbeatable?

EDIT EDIT EDIT: OK! I've played the game all the way through!  I like the setting of your chapter Donut, though I admit I had to cheat a few times to work out what to do.

I can honestly say I have no idea what to do next :S I'll give it some thought and tell you if I'm struggling... Oh yeah one more thing Fish I think there needs to be the ability to retreat from your puzzle room and go back, as the player has just come from a lot of battles and has no option to heal. I had one KO party member and one poisoned on 1HP, and I basically had to hold down ctrl as there was no possible way to heal. I did like the crystal puzzle overall though, I thought it was neat.

Anyway cool work everyone and I'll see what I can do!

@Red
Change whatever you need to! We always have a backup in case you break my chapter. That's how I managed not to break yours after all.

XD Oh that water trap. I really should have added a teleport event. The Fish are only super strong if you let them multiply. Really you don't even need that treasure but if I remember right there's a super quick way to beat them like most of my enemies.  Lemme put down Skyrim and take a look at it and see if I can find it and PM it to you. The Log Pirates beat you??? o-o; They weren't meant to be so tough. I was around level nine I think. I did have most of my best gear or at least a good strategy. But feel free to knock them down a 'peg' or two. ^_-

Yeah it's cause I had to stop using the TES. =/ Couldn't figure out how to have enemies moving and keep my Crystal puzzle in tact too, and as you noted it was one of my best yet right? I was, and still continue to be, proud of that thing. I did latter think about how in Brave Fencer Musashi sometimes an Ooze would drop on the player from above and of adding rocks that seem to stay still until you hit a certain tile then they come to life and jump at you using the movement style Purps had the Spidoids use in JO. Alas it was already in Donut's hands when I realized these wonderful ways to tweak the TES. -.-;

As for not healing feel free to add another healing skill but Joel and Naomi both have at least one and I had TONS of healing items I left in place in my chapter. I think I had medical and food for sure.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: OK! I've played the game all the way through!  I like the setting of your chapter Donut, though I admit I had to cheat a few times to work out what to do.

Glad you like it! My initial idea wasn't so different from that, Fish kinda pushed more idea to me for that in his long PM ;)
I'm really greteful to Momeka to having finished it for me, he fixed a very annoying bug,  made the final sequence which looks soooo good, and one of the systems. I feel like he's made the chapter for me ahah. Sorry >.<
I haven't been able to reopen RM2k3 to make anything out of it, so I think I'll dump it for good forever, which makes me a bit sad as it was the first engine I used.

 :blush: You guys have mondo interesting PMs compared to my inbox! As for ditching 2k3 I would get rid of Tsukuru too. It is far inferior to the steam pressed RM2003. The only thing that made it good was the Cherry Mods and those don't always work.  _sweat_
