Well, no, not really. The file so far is really big, because I have to include everything into it (Even stuff I dont use) Its a 24 MB file so far. If it didnt pack the stuff I didnt need, I'd have about a 6 or 7 MB file, since my opening movie is 4 MB for some strange reason.


EDIT- Now that I think about it, If I find out a way to make the file ALOT smaller, I'd be able to have people beta test it. :)

LOL! :lol: Thanks alot! You could be a beta tester too if you wanted to. There would be NO HARM in doing this because it would not crash the computer, it would just crash the game...And if that would happen, all you'd have to do is report it to me.

And Quendi. I'd want to make it smaller because some people dont have cable modems. While I do, I'd like it for ALL people to be able to download it. :)

Nope. RPG Maker 2000. A damned good program. Its the best...for making gameboy type games.

You could download it off the official link, but I searched for about 10 minutes. Couldn't find it. Plus, I think that site is in Russian or something. And its a free program (As far as I'm concerned.) So, I got it off the big "K". ;)

*** UPDATE ***

Here is an important update in gameplay. I originally was going to make it a normal game with a normal old game system, nothing special. I have been reading the tutorials, and now I see some ways I WILL improve my gameplay with.

1. A hunger factor: You will have to eat or else your character will die. (Dont worry, you will be supplied with one meal in the beggining, but afterwards will have to buy them in diners/stores.)

2. Capturing: If you are in a royal town, and get captured, I will make a Metal Gear Solid Style escape factor, so it will be fun, and so you can bust out free. :)

and last but best...

3. MINIGAMES!!!:
Yes, I will make minigames! One which includes snowboarding...Final Fantasy 7 style...this is all I'm working on. Though, I assure you, there will be more, like, I might add in...a casino perhaps? :cool:

OK, I even know what the Big K means, so this is still technically talking about it. However, you said it is free, so... PM him about it.

Also, Liell's RPG was a bit neater looking, IMO. Listen to what he has to tell you. But I never knew his story, yours is pretty cool ;)

I might wanna try it when you wanna let people try it. I do have a cable, also.

Yea, I did PM him...maybe he didnt get it? Ke knows what the big K is...he just doesnt know what to search for....Its a no-brainer: RPG Maker 2000.

Anyways, I will change the people's looks, but I will not make different chipsets...cuz I'm way too lazy to make a whole new entire chipset.

Acrylic, this game looks really good so far. I have always loved birds eye view RPG games, and this one looks like fun. I really like the hunger factor btw, reminds me a little of Harvest Moon...

Well, first you gotta make a map for the cave or whatever, then you gotta make a teleport...to the exact location you want it.

UPDATE

Ok, another update. I changed the look of the main character...Its along the same concept, but its better looking IMO. The snowboarding minigame is coming out fine!

BAD NEWS TIME

Well, my hunger system might go down the drain...Its not seeming to work. I'll do some more tweaking and more "guess and check" with it, (Since the tutorial was poorly translated)..and hopefully it'll come out fine. Because the hunger system would be so neat, add a new level of challenge. :)


And...

ANOTHER UPDATE
I will have a casino in the game. It'll be basic stuff, like more of a "Heads or Tails" Thing because doing other stuff would set me back a couple months since theres no tutorial for any "advanced" casino stuff, so yea.

Thats it for the updates. :)
