Hey guys! i finally uploaded another version of SYRPG!

This version's main changes include :

* A change from "Jam" sprites, to more polished sprites.
* Minor changes to the title screen.
* Audio balances.
* Enemies flash red when hit (forgot to add the same feature to Kuro-chan.. sorry!)

Although the changes are small, and not much; i plan on adding more in the future!

Hello,

The game won't start since the update (can't say much as nothing happen when i try to launch it)

Developer (Edited 2 times)

Thanks for the info, i will try and fix it! i will post here if i managed to fix it

cheers!~

edit: turns out it's not a problem with the game's programming but the way the IDE's exporting the game? it was working a moment ago before i exported & uploaded it, i'm going to dig in deeper...

I'm a little curious, which ide is it ?

Developer (Edited 1 time)

i used Eclipse "Juno" for more than 3 years before upgrading to "Mars" which i have only been using for about 4 months... the upgrade is due to the fact that i'm now using windows 8, instead of windows XP (Microsoft forced my hand on that one!)

and i guess, that you need to setup your IDE settings properly! (lol)

hope that quenched your thirst!~cheers~


edit: i uploaded a momentary fix! it should be working now!

Yep that made the trick!

what did you fix ? (i'm curious, i used eclipse some years ago)

There wasn't any problem i could notice this time. (until my death that is, this third fight is hard >.>)

Developer (Edited 1 time)

The problem lies within the fact that i didn't specify which version of the "res" (resources : images,animation,sound) and also Library files for the Jar to use..

since Jar files are basically glorified "executable" zip files, there's also a copy of the same "res" and Library inside the jar itself when i export it! but this time i forgot about the Library while finishing up, so i had a runtime exception! (which doesn't show unless you run the game via console commands)

as for the reason why it was working for me, probably the Jar used a Library it found somewhere on my computer...
honestly though, i have no clue why it worked for a while; and then stopped working completely #ProgrammerProblems, but at least it works now! :D

as for the third level, are you referring to the Lizard Warrior-Archer combo? the main trick is to remember that the Lizards have life-steal, BUT the "Hug" ability shields you from EVERYTHING.. so timing, and also conserving your AP before the fight is crucial!

also, one last thing... as a developer, you're one of the few people who actually showed interest in my game, and helped the development of the game; so for that, i want to say thank you!

~cheers~


P.S do you have any ideas for the game? i might consider adding it to my to-do list!

(+1)

Did it stopped working after you uploaded it the first time or before ?(i already know the answer >.>)

(suppose it was after) On my first try i had the old version inside the same root folder so it should have used the res from it at last once. Or maybe it won't work with compiled files ?

I didn't know the hug was this powerful ! I'll try to save some ap on the previous fight.


As for idea, i may have a lot who will make it more deep gameplay wise and i don't know if you really want it, it's a game made for a game jam after all.

-many class for the fighter, ex : monk -different instead of strenght + and speed + => speed++

-maybe some combo within a frame limit, ex : execute e->h->k within 3 sec = one more bonus for the last command

-each x fights add a camp (ref : darkest dungeon or dragon crawn) but suppose some random fights

- a story mod !!

i know that as little the idea may be, it will require many hours of work but i can help you with the test part if you want.(i didn't program for years so i may be a little too rusted for this )

Developer

Lol, i went and typed a 3 paragraph explanation (and it didn't make sense)
tldr version; I compiled it (exported it) wrong, and forgot to add the library in the folder to compensate for the missing library in the JAR file i exported, and as to why it worked for a few moments (before i uploaded)... idk! XD
let's leave it as one of the mysteries of the world!

All of your ideas are already on my Todo-list, except the part about multiple classes... i will consider adding that soon(tm).

I'm starting college tomorrow, so i will have even less time to work on this.. but i hope to add more of everything!
