[Reuben 3] Demo 1
« on: August 01, 2015, 11:31:28 am »
Yes, it's time for a demo of reuben 3!
This topic is only for discussion about this demo and suggestions/bigfixes that arise because of this, for other stuff please use this topic: https://ourl.ca/21881

So, attached you can find the program! Just run it and everything should be working if you have at least 52 bytes of free RAM! (To be honest, who doesn't?)

To change the grayscale settings you will need to change them in any graylib program, haven't programmed a GUI for that yet, Reuben1 for example would do for changing the grayscale settings :P

Use your arrow keys to move around and the 2ND key to interact with things!
You won't get this "auto-aligning" if you hold down 2nd while walking.

Use the DEL key to exit the game. I know, this currently also works in the battle engine but it will be removed as that allows you to skip battles :P

Please comment on how you like it / feature suggestions / bug reports!

Known issues
  • Battles have no intro/outro animation
  • Level up text is overlayed with progress bar
  • Battles don't have a background

I tried out the demo. It was pretty cool, nice graphics, all that.

Issues:

I noticed that Reuben seems to move slower here than in the earlier games. I liked his speed better in Reuben 2.
Reuben also dies pretty quickly. I saved my progress after receiving the stick(a stick?), and then went into the forest where Reuben was promptly beaten up by some cat-thing. With only 55HP after a single battle, I continued and ended up dead.

Is that timer thing something you're trying? It seems a little slow.

There seem to be no bugs. Keep it up, I can't wait to play the complete one!
*Most of this could be just my calculator. I'm not sure.

Thanks for your feedback!

As for the speed, I probably won't be able to change it much, as i re-wrote how quite some internals of the walking are working, so that I can use like path tiles and thelike, but I can still look into it a bit.

As to Reuben dying quickly: When saving you'll restore HP/MP, and I haven't implemented bottles with water which will heal you yet. And after leveling up you are stronger.

As for the timer thingy, it is slow at first, as reuben isn't able to attack quickly, yet! IDK if i implemented that yet, but with leveling up that timer will fill up quicker!

As for the stick, there will be different kinds of weapons in this game ;)

Which calc did you use BTW?

I'm using a TI-84+. Also, will the NPCs have detail(i.e., faces)? I always thought it would enhance the game to have NPCs that weren't just shorter cousins of Slender-man. Would it be possible to use pixilart.net to draw sprites for you? I'm helping develop another game, but I have time. :w00t:

I'd be quite happy for NPC spires! Sprites must be 8x8 pixels and 4lvl grayscale

Alright! I'll get started after I'm done with my Algebra 1 Homework, then convert the images w/ GIMP 2.0.

EDIT:
I further scrutinized this demo and came up w/ 4 pages of my thoughts.
I don't want to spend forever retyping it all, since I wrote it on paper, so just scanned the papers.
The only problem is, I don't know how to place attachments in a modified post, so I'll just let Eeems scold me
for double posting.

Maybe sometime i will actualy try to finish that greyscale routine for you, as i also need it in my greyscale game :P

Edit: now you dont have to double post anymore Dudeman! xD

Q: Why does the "pickaxe" look exactly like the shovel from Ev Awakening?
A: Because I used the same sprite, feel free to come up with another one

Q: How come when Reuben levels up, the words "LEVEL UP!" appear on top of the "battle bar"?
A: Because I've barely spent any work on that animation, thanks for pointing it out.

Q: Why does Reuben become transparent when he walks? When he's on the path to Ebus's house, he's like a ghost!
A: Probably a timing issue (I'm using dark hacks to make it run quicker). Which calc are you using? 84+? Did you set the grayscale settings via the Reuben1 app? (they use the same appvar for the settings)

Q: I need to know if any NPCs move at all before I make the complete sprite sheet
A: Probably not

Q: Is Ebus an old dude?
A: TBA

Q: How will Reuben aquire and equip weapons?
A: TBA

Q: Why is there no pause/stats/inventory screen?
A: Not implemented yet

Q: Will Reuben be able to set things on fire?
A: TBA

Q: How will Reuben aquire gold?
A: TBA

Q: What kind of enemies do you want?
A: Won't answer right now, as that is a bit more complex, I'll keep in mind that you seem willing to help with that, though, thank you!

Q: Can this be ported to the color calculators?
A: No, as already mentioned, I will not port any more reuben games, but rather create new ones.

Q: Will there be an actual person waiting to battle Reuben in the final stage of the game?
A: TBA

Q: Where might LAF appear?
A: TBA

Q: Why exactly is Reuben qhere he is at the beginning and how did he get there?
A: TBA

Q: Will there be a cool-looking intro like the sadly deceased project (also in Axe) called "Ash: Phoenix"?
A: IDK how that intro looked like but this game will have an intro

Q: I always found that the switches were annoying in the fact that you did not know what you did until you looked for it. Will there be a Zelda style switch function where Reuben suddenly gains X-ray vision and sees exactyl what just happened?
A: When I have the space I might add that.

Q: I like how Reuben heals a considerable large amount after leveling up. Good Job.
A. Thank you!

Q: Why did you put a drunk person in the demo?
A: Why not?

Q: Can commas be displayed?
A: You mean the ","-char? yes.

Q: Side Quest: Find a lost teddy bear.
A: Side Quest ideas GOGOGO!!!

Q: Side Quest: Save "this guy's" brother (TLOZ: Test of COurage v0,8 by Sam Heald)
A: uuuh, ok?

Q: Cant here be battles wher ehte game is suddenly a platformer? (like Chibi Knight)
A: No, I'd have to write a whole new engine

Q: What will the title screen look like?
A: Good question

Q: Will locations be placed on signs instead of in the stats screen?
A: TBA

Q: Will there be moving objects that are not Reuben or NPCs? (Like in Xeda's Pokemon Amber)
A: Probably not in this game

Q: Will there be good items?
A: TBA

Q: Will there still be Elixers?
A: TBA

Q: Will there be armor and stuff? (Ash: Phoenix by squidgetx)
A: TBA

Q: Will there be skills to learn for the weapons aquired?
A: TBA

Q: Will there be chickens? (Now I'm thinking of my stomach)
A: TBA

Q: Will there be the ability to travel by portal anywhere? (computer-legend of the void, calc-embers: phoenix)
A: TBA

Q: Did the world really exist before 2000? (Either a plot thing, or totally off topic)
A: What'cha mean?

Q: If there could be crossbows, will it depend on arrows?
A: No corssbows, but other fancy stuff

Q: What happens if Reuben dies?
A: You will have to restart from the last time you saved.

Q: Will Reuben be able to give all his MP up for a half-health ressurection?
A: TBA

Q: Can there be spells from "Legends"? (on RevSoft)
A: I don't know that game

Q: Can you tell I'm excited to help with this?
A: Yes!

Q: Can you also tell that this needs work?
A: Yes!

Q: Cant here be items in the game that give Reuben a magic immunity?
A: TBA

A: Ask me ALL the questions!

Q: Will there be dragons?
A: TBA

Q: Can there be a hidden pong game? (Alien Breed 5)
A: Probably not

Q: Will there be silly, useless items? (Desolate by tr1p1ea - a ducky idol?)
A: TBA

Q: I just now realized how much this is....sorry!
A: No worries, you game me some more typing practice ;)


Ok, some general stuff: So many things are TBA because I don't want to release too many details about the plot and stuff yet.
Also, this is easily my longest post on omni XD

What does TBA mean?
I by "Did the world really exist before 2000?" I meant, did the world actually exist before the start of a century I was born 3 years into? *.*

"Legends" is a 2-player spellcaster game created by NanoWar. It's pretty awesome. Here's his spell list:

Do you mean by "exists" since when the ideas of the world exist or since then the world inside of the world logic thingy itself exists?

If I was not in existence before I was born, how do I know everything else was?
It's a great time to be young.

Just now, I found out I'm TERRIBLE @ coming up w/front-facing sprites.

Wow, lots of feedback Dudeman313. Nice to see you interested in this project. About sprites, the best way to get better it just to do it. Front facing is the easiest for me personally. Look at other's examples. The spriter's resource: http://www.spriters-resource.com/ is a great place to see sprites ripped from various old games. I find them to be very useful for reference. :thumbsup:

I've also used Dwedit's sprite page for inspiration, though those are mostly b&w.
