Spoiler For old:
Public Beta: Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening

Please test it as much as possible and report bugs!
Quote from: readme
Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening

=======Installation=======
To install this game you
must send all the appVars
and the app to your calc.
It is recommended to place
the appVars into archive.
The game requires at least
4800 bytes of free RAM to
run.

=========Gameplay=========
Arrow keys: Move
2nd: Interact
ALPHA: Items and Stats
MODE: Graphic Settings
CLEAR: Exit

=========Settings=========
The first time you run it
you will be be asked to
adjust your grayscale set-
tings as they may vary
from calc to calc. After
that you should set your
delay which also depends
on the calc running it, it
defaults to values which
should be pretty close, if
not the actual correct
delay.

=========Credits==========
Programming: Sorunome
Graphics: Art_of_camelot
Story&Maps: DJ Omnimaga

Thanks to Runer112 for
making Axe!

Thanks to everybody who
supported me throughout
the development of this
RPG!


We have a website!
www.reubenquest.net
Spoiler For old post:
Yes, it is time!
The beta is closed
Please keep in mind that this is a beta and thus not the finished version. I know that it has a few bugs, the most noticable is probably some graphic glitches on enemy displaying.
It is still lacking some animations on the battle engine too.

Be sure to send the App and all three Appvars to your calc. It is recommended to place the appvars in archive.
You must have at least 10k of free RAM when starting the app i do not check that yet.

In order to re-adjust the greyscale you must delete the appvar GS
In order to start a new game you must delete the appvar θR1SAV

I will not attach it here because reasons.
And no, currently there is no way of viewing your current EXP, Item and stuff (I hope i got the math right :P)

To interact with the environment use the 2ND key.

Is there some weird reason behind this? Because the GetCalc(NAME,FILE) command for reading from archived variables has also worked with variables in RAM for a while now.

In order to re-adjust the greyscale you must delete the appvar GS

Just map a key to the GTune() function. :P Alternatively, you can be a bit more bold and make your own contrast/grayscale controls, in which case I'd advise checking out the source of the GTune() function to see how to properly change contrast and grayscale delay.

I know, i just haven't gotten around adding that yet :P
Also, I noticed That i have to unload Greylib before archiving to not crash the calc :P

I'M interested in a copy of course :P
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

If you don't mind me asking, why have a closed beta?

I'll take a copy, anyway.

Because I don't want the file attached here and having random people stumbling upon it, not reading that it is a beta and saying that it sucks.
And, i should have mentioned, this beta is for omni members :P

Also, i'd need your email then :P (pm, irc, whatever other way)

Indeed but if you make copies of the data you need twice the RAM. :P

Yup. As long as it doesn't exceed half the user RAM it should work.
send it

wait, if you have ALL the appvars in ram at the same time, plus the 10K, i don't think that'd work, lol

I just tried it a few hours ago but fell asleep through it. I turned my calc OFF in extremis when I almost feel asleep during a battle. Keep in mind that I was really tired, though, and it's not due to the game. XD It was pretty great so far :D

Vegeta ! What does this scouter say about it's awesomeness level ?!
It's ovER NINE THOUSAND !

:D


Bug : When you sleep, the contrast is restored to the OS setting while it should be restored to the GrayLib setting. :P
Another one : Some text says "Itns too hot in the lava mine".

Also : please return to the last save point instead of quitting when the player dies.
