« on: January 14, 2012, 05:56:24 am »
I'm just re-posting a pooshlmer thread so xenomic can get some actual feedback about his project.

 This game was created by a friend of mine named Xenomic by using RPG Maker 2k3. He's been working on this game by himself for about 2-3 years. Anyways,this game is basically based on Pandora's Box. As for the gameplay,it's like Final Fantasy. As of right now,this game is only on it's 5th Beta.

Help wanted: A pretty good spriter. Right now,he's looking for a spriter to create sprites for the characters and such. His old spriter quit on him for whatever reason and because of that,there are sprites that are missing in the game.. Here are the specific sprites he needs,also said by him himself: "*Custom overworld sprites to match up with the current overworld sprites I'm using for the vast majority of the cast. *Custom in-battle sprites for a few characters *Status effect sprites/palettes for all characters (this has been a thorn in my side ever since my original status spriter left the project...) *Custom enemy/boss sprites,mainly to avoid using so many Final Fantasy sprites and to have more sprites that's fitting for the game. *Custom overworld sprites for various situations (such as KO'd on overworld,emotion sprites,and whatnot. These aren't necessarily NEEDED as badly as the others,but they'd be a nice touch I suppose)."

Before I forget,here are some screenshots of the game: http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x308/Xenomic/Screenshots/OverworldSpritesTF.png This pic shows what the characters' overworld sprites in the game looks like so that you get the idea of how he wants it and such,or you can make new sprites in a different style.

http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x308/Xenomic/Screenshots/OverworldSpritesTF2.png This pic shows emotion sprites. See the two fairies that are lying down? That's what I'm talking about.

http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x308/Xenomic/Screenshots/In-BattleSpritesTF2.png This pic shows three things; the custom boss sprite,the custom battle sprites,and the status sprite (As you can see from the character,Hope,the one that's using Reimu's sprite,since she doesn't have a sprite yet,with the protect status on.)

For more questions about TF or if you're interested in helping him make sprites,you can contact Xenomic on Youtube on his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/Xenomic?feature=g-u You can also get the download link of TF there also. Thank you in advance if one of you decides to help him

Here are some screenshots from the game itself. However,these are from Beta1: http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x308/Xenomic/RPG%20Maker%20Stuff/Screenshots/Screenshot3-1.png

 Since Leon here was ever so nice in posting this topic (if in a very awkward way),I guess I can post the main stuff about this topic here. Of course,depending on what you guys care to know about the game,I may omit some things for now (for right now,the characters for instance), since I don't know if there's a way to do spoilers on this thing (first time using this ^^;).

A few things to note:

*Bamboo Forest is a bit buggy,so it's best to not approach the second puzzle before doing the first. I'll have to redo the forest entirely later anyways,but that's that. *Synthesis shop is still in beta,as I'm still deciding on how much things will take (that,and what will drop where and whatnot).

If you find any bugs or have any suggestions/criticisms,feel free to let me know ^^

Xenomic just posted an update to his game touhou fantasy http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZZ966HEO. Also to any coders out xenomic needs someone to take a look at the coding to see if it can't be done better or where it needs improvement. Use this post to report bugs or things you think need to be changed :D

Your using sprites from other games right? I suggest you thank the owners of them at the loading screen, title screen, and staff roll to avoid copyright shit.

Ah there...took me long enough to get myself here...

Anyways, I generally give thanks and whatnot to the original people for music and sprites in the Read Me file (which needs updated badly). Right now I only have the Music thank yous in the Music Room of the debug room (easier for me to find what belongs to what, though there's some I haven't been able to identify at all yet). Overworld sprites were from another person that I should have already thanked in the Read Me (since they were open-sourced, as long as that person was credited). I planned on adding them to the Staff Roll anyways, if I ever make it that far that is.

The only problem I'm having (aside from what's listed above with needing spriters and someone to check coding) is figuring out what song belongs to which group (and not using ZUN's songs, since IIRC he had a policy about not using his original works, right?). So yeah, there's that that needs checked on too x_x

I myself can't remix anything (no programs, and I certainly am not musically adept to do so x_x ). I have been slowly replacing them with other remixes though, if anything else (though finding some is like...impossible since they're either never been done, or just aren't good enough to use. Magician of the Evening Dark is one that I cannot replace yet due to that issue, even though it only plays at one part in the game x_x;; ).

I've gotta say, I was expecting the worst when I read the topic title, but the overworld sprites are pretty nice. This looks like it has some potential- I might be able to help some with art/programming if I get the time, though I'm not much of a spriter, if you're going for retro FF 1-frame enemies I could probably help with some of those.

I would download the game but, well, Megaupload  :derp:

Mediafire alternative since MU is gone...

Just about any sprite style will work, since well...the sprites are all over the place as it is. Though having sprites (FFV/VI styled might be nice?) for original monsters and/or Touhou enemies (like Ghosties, Fairies, etc) would be nice...


In addition to the reupload, updated patch as well as more music (hopefully I didn't miss anything?). The music MIGHT be turned into .ogg format...not sure yet.

So, I've decided that Koishi's Blue Magic list needs revamped badly. She just seems too generic really (and she needs to be more unique). So, I'm going to post all of her Blue Magic spells here, and you guys can help decide which goes and which stays! And then afterwards, I shall post what I have in mind for the new spells. So, the current list is as follows:


Flare Breath (Base 400 Fire damage to all enemies)
Flame Star (Base 700 Fire damage to all enemies)
Flame Stone (Base 1200 Fire damage to one enemy)
Salamander Shield (Base 2000 Fire damage to all enemies)
Ice Storm (Base 400 Ice damage to all enemies)
Diamond Edge (Base 550 Ice damage + Berserk to one enemy)
Judgment Bolt (Base 800 Thunder damage to all enemies)
Lightning Orb (Base 1100 Thunder damage to one enemy. Ignores Defense)
Heaven & Earth Press (Base 500 Earth damage to one enemy)
Six Earthquakes (Base 200 Earth damage to all enemies)
Wind Sickle (Base 400 Wind damage to all enemies)
Tsunami (Base 500 Water damage to all enemies)
Dragon Bullet (Base 2200 Holy damage to all enemies)
Pandaemonium (Base 4000 Holy damage to all enemies)
Paschal Moon (Base 2900 Shadow damage to one enemy. Drains HP and ignores Defense)
Chaos Drive (Base 600 Shadow damage to all enemies)
Doomsday (Base 800 Shadow damage to all enemies)
Poison Mist (Base 45 damage + Poison to all enemies)
Pollen (Base 20 damage + Sleep to all enemies)
Ink (Blind to all enemies)
Gathering Oni (Death to one enemy)
Offense Down Omega (-20 Attack to all enemies)
Defense Down Omega (-20 Defense to all enemies)
Death Lance (Base 2500 Ghost damage + Death to one enemy)
Fireworks (Base 1500 physical/magical damage to all enemies)
Scarlet Weather Rhapsody (Base 3000 damage to one enemy)
Flare (Base 1500 Fire magic damage to one enemy)
Freeze (Base 1500 Ice magic damage + Freeze to one enemy)
Bio (Base 500 magic damage + Poison to one enemy)
Bioga (Base 1500 magic damage + Poison to one enemy)
Heal (Restore 200 HP to party)
Aura (Restore 5000 HP + all statuses to one ally)
Full-Cure (Restore all HP to one ally)
Holy (Base 4500 Holy magic damage to one enemy)
Shadow Flare (Base 4500 Shadow magic damage to one enemy)
Drain (Drains base 300 HP from one enemy)
Drainra (Drains base 600 HP from one enemy)
Drainga (Drains base 1400 HP from one enemy)
Meteor (Base 4000 magic damage to all enemies)
Ultima (Base 5500 magic damage to all enemies)
Mighty Guard (Regen + MP Regen + Blink + Protect + Haste to all allies)
White Wind (Restores HP to party equal to Koishi's HP)
Nova Storm (50% chance of reducing any target's HP in battle to 1. Works on allies and enemies alike)


That's that for her Blue Magic list. As you can see, it's pretty....well....not THAT diverse really. These are the ideas I had in mind (borrowed from the FF series of course):


Angel Whisper (FFVII version, give to Hope (Full-Life + Mini-Esuna). FFTA version, give to Mokou at multiple levels (Restore minor HP + Auto-Life)
Death Claw (Reduce to 1 HP and inflict Paralyze).
Vampire (Drain + Sap)
Angel's Snack (Give to Hope?. Uses a Faith item for each party member in party. Or give to Koishi, and make it cure statuses that cannot normally be cured by other abilities?)
Hastebreak (Slow on non-Haste characters. Stop on Haste characters)
Rippler (Trade statuses with one target. May become Enemy Only)
Traveler (Deals damage equal to number of steps taken / 32)
Night (Sleep on all targets in battle)
Angelsong (Regen on all allies)
Destroyer (Increases ATK/DEF/MAG)



In addition to Blue Magic skills, there are also a chance of me making passive/equipment abilities. Also borrowed from the FF series, but ideas on these would be nice too!


Gil Snapper (Receive Yen equal to damage taken. Make % chance. Possibly Marisa innate)
Replenish MP (Regain 20% of damage taken as MP)
Unscarred (Attack/Defense/Magic +50% if HP is at full)
Critical abilities for equipment (Such as Critical: Haste, Critical: Berserk, etc)
Moon Flute (Turn into Mad Rush for Momiji's command. Moon Flute inflicts Berserk on the party. Mad Rush would inflict Berserk + Protect + Haste on the party).



In ADDITION, here are some new enemy skills that'll probably be seen in-game! Not all though possibly mind you!


Level 2 Sleep/Level 3 Confuse/Level 4 Disable/Level 5 Break
Acid (Random status effect)
Aqua Bubbles (Water damage + Sap)
Bleed (Inflicts Sap)
Invert (Switch HP and MP)
Pox (Inflicts Disease)
Pulsar Wave (Non-elemental damage + Disable to all)
White Breath (Ice damage + Stop)
Judgment (Holy damage + Stop)
Bewitching Gaze (Charm + Slow to one)
L4 Suicide (Reduces HP by 9/10 if levels are equal to a multiple of 4)
Degenerator (Inflicts Instant Death and removes target from battle)
Level ? Holy (Deals damage to all whose level is a multiple of the last digit of Yen)
Prime Level Death (Instant death to all whose level are a prime number)



In addition, what does everyone here think of having 8-way directional movement in the game (since default is 4-way)? I've had this in the game since around beta1/2, but never put it into full use due to a bug with it, but now that it's (potentially) fixed, I could put it in for ya'll?



Do leave your comments on this! I really need help on this bit x_x;;

"Yeah, I think i understand what you're saying. How about having only very few monsters give exp, just items instead or remnants, i.e. teeth, skins etc. that you can sell or exchange? (quite a few rpgs do that, it's actually fun, imo)."

"Items that you can sell for EXP? Hmmm...that's actually an interesting idea. Though that could cause a lot of issues with the current game since most monsters drop crafting items for the Synthesis system in the game...unless I make a Synthesis Shop where you can buy the materials and/or craft them as well. Idseas, ideas..."


My reply to the person's idea on fixing EXP in another forum. I was thinking of making crafting items easier to obtain other than from chests/monster drops, by either being buyable or by being craftable themselves (more than likely, the lower leveled ones would have to be found, the mid-tier ones would have to be bought/made, and the high ones either only foundable or makeable). So there's a couple things here:

*Make Crafting materials buyable/craftable, ala Genius of Sapphieros/Devil of Decline?
*Make monsters not give EXP or give very little, and have items that can be traded for EXP, and have sidequests later that can give EXP (which is the original idea)?


A couple things to chew on I suppose for now.

There is no way to boot it up in window mode I think. I'll need to ask that.

As for the Music, it should be just the files themselves in the Music folder, not the folders that the music are rared in.

Strange...it should play the music just fine in all scenes if you got all of the music packs that are listed there and extracted the music files into the Music folder...you didn't change any of the file names did you? Because that would break in-game as well.

Well, it plays the music inside the Human Village and it plays Awakening of the Earth Spirits in Satori's part of the intro. So now I'm wondering if it's just that there's no music in some parts. Also, those hornets on the Misty Lake easy path are really, really tough.

And Cirno is really tough - her Icicle Fall is a killer.

Note that some of these aren't played at all in-game yet (so you can't find them in the debug room), so you'll have to listen to those by other means.

And this is her ORIGINAL sprites (which were never finished and given to me by the original spriter. He vanished on me a long time ago and never saw him again):







Now, thanks to a request I gave to the person who did the overworld sprites that I'm using, we have THIS!






I have to say...it fits pretty darn well! Sure it's not as fancy as the original sprites, but it's still pretty darn good AND works with her concept art as well. I'd say it works, don't you?

Those sprites fit much better with the art style of the rest of the game, as well, so I think in a way it's better that you got these new ones.

Just a little something that Cherry is working for 2k3, which I'll be definitely using for TF once the thing is fleshed out more. It'll make it a LOT easier to know what statuses people have on at the time and whatnot, though might try to see if I can't set it over the character's portraits/HP/MP bar in the style I'm using (if it's possible at all). This isn't from TF mind you, just overall. The patch I'm using also fixes a few other things and adds some nifty things (this being one of them). Of course, I don't know jack about C++, which most of these plugins will use, so might need to find someone to help on this part, depending on how much can be done with it x_x;;

Wow, very nice concept art there. Feels in keeping with the Touhou setting while still being unique.

It'll make it a LOT easier to know what statuses people have on at the time and whatnot, though might try to see if I can't set it over the character's portraits/HP/MP bar in the style I'm using (if it's possible at all).

Considering how many status effects you have listed above, you're probably going to need either small, distinct icons, or some sort of other indication for certain ones (tints, effect layers, etc) and reserve symbols for those that are less obvious to depict (otherwise your statuses could end up taking up quite a large space in certain situations where many of them are applied at once).

Another idea is cyclical displays, in that (in reference to the above image) the sleeping slime would look exactly as is with the one icon, but the one above it with two ailments would intermittently display either one or the other, cycling through them and only taking up the same area no matter how many ailments show. This solution saves space, allows for many, many ailments, and allows for consistency of icons (not to mention larger sizes), but is arguably bit awkward for the player as it requires them to wait for each symbol.

I love the concept art for Hope. The artist did a good job of imagining that up (same with Chaos, whom ironically I wanted to keep somewhat similar in regards to Final Fantasy's Chaos in a way...just not LIKE him, if you know what I mean?). I do wish he didn't disappear on me though, now I have only one person that can do the arts for me, and she's pretty busy so I have nobody to really do the concept arts right now (and still no spriters to do their in-battle/boss/overworld sprites either @_@ ). If anything, I think the one thing I liked about Hope's design is the flower motif she has going with her. I think it's easy to see that with her (Chaos...I don't think she HAS much of a motif with her design). Though there is one similar design between all of the components, being (which isn't mentioned in-game yet) that they all have at least one marking somewhere on their body (Chaos' being on her right leg. I actually forget where Hope's was...).


Aye, I tossed that idea to Cherry. Just gotta wait and see what he has to say. He just got this out tonight, so it's still brand new (and more new things will be out tomorrow or whenever the official release is). Otherwise, we end up with this:





Yeah, note that Marisa is the only one without statuses in this fight....you see what happens there right now lol...I also suggested an idea to Cherry, for those that use the style of battle layout that I do (with portraits/HP/MP bar), to see if it's possible to set those above the character portraits/bars themselves. Only problem with that is there's no real way to determine who's in what slot (unless Cherry went with Character ID that's used in the database....THAT might work...).

And so, after quite some time of thinking of new things (and reading some tutorials of which I may use), here's what's new in the Ideas and possible updates in the near future for this game (as well as ongoing projects in Touhou Fantasy). Note that some of these have been mentioned before, but will be rementioned anyways:


*New command abilities. These include the following:

*Mad Rush (Momiji): Berserk + Protect + Haste to party
*Souleater (Remilia): Sacrifice 30% of Max HP to inflict non-elemental damage to all enemies equal to a 33% multiplier of HP sacrificed.
*Astrology (Patchouli. Command name pending): Allows Patchouli to grant elemental buffs to a party member's weapon. Can only have one buff on a party member at any given time (i.e. cannot have both Fire and Holy), and does not work in tangent with Hope's Pestilence command buffs.
*Pestilence (Hope): Unlike most of the other commands, this command will not give Hope access to Pestilence movesets (in fact, she might only get 1 out of 3 abilities at that from Pestilence). This works similarly to Astrology, in that Hope can grant one status buff to a character's weapon (i.e. grant Instant Death to a character's weapon to allow them to inflict Instant Death with regular attacks). Does not work in tangent with Astrology, and can only have one buff on a party member at any given time (i.e. cannot have both Instant Death and Poison).

*Gameplay:

*Hope: Hope in general may get revamped, in that her stats will change depending on what "mode" she's in. For instance, in her default "mode", her stats are unchanged, but in her "Fate" mode, her HP and Attack are lower, while her MP and Magic are higher. This may also include elemental and status resistances being changed too. Depends on whether or not the Class command can be done in this way.
*Koishi: As mentioned before, Koishi will be undergoing a revamp on her Blue Magics, mainly to make them more unique and less generic. Of course, this will more than likely hamper her playability as she'll no longer have access to 50 some odd abilities and instead roughly half of that, but consider this a balancing issue that needs fixed.
*Suwako: Suwako is undergoing a slight update with new moves, to accomodate for her lack of usability in the game.
*Updated HRCS system: This will include the ability to switch out any party members at any given time, without the need to have one party member in the party all the time (i.e. Reimu, Marisa, and Momiji), unless absolutely required to have them (i.e. Youkai Mountain, Blazing Fires of Hell).
*Custom EXP System: This will differ from the current EXP system, in that it will allow for more flexibility with level ups and custom statuses. This will remain in debug room until it is completely done and players have tested it (as well as with the statuses associated with it, those including Virus, Wounded, and Double EXP).
*Custom Skill Shop: To avoid having players constantly go into their menu to upgrade their skills, this will allow players to see what skills can be bought and what they do, as well as automatically learn them after they are bought (will still follow the same system as the current skill system). This too will remain in the debug room until fully done and tested by players.
*Overworld Field Abilities: Borrowed mostly from Defiant of Shrine Maiden. Also includes the ability to change the player's overworld sprite with a single button, which is meant to be used in tangent with this system. Depending on which character is on the map, different abilities can be used for different effects (i.e. Aya's allow the player to view the map, Marisa's allows the player to unlock locked doors and chests that don't require a switch or key to open).
*Updated Statuses: Still a work in progress. This will help with showing what statuses a character has on as to alleviate not knowing what is on a character due to 2k3's limitation. The statuses Disease, Freeze, Bubble, and Heat are all still a WIP as well and require being fully finished somehow, if possible.
*Updated Synthesis Shop and Crafting Items: Still a WIP. I feel that the Synthesis Shop won't be used at all due to how the materials are needed for the stuff in here, and feel that I may need to make a way to buy/make crafting materials (or have an easier way to get crafting materials obtainable). Open to ideas on this one.
*Enemies: Enemies may get fixed up so that regular physical attacks will do more damage and not have the physical skills completely rape them otherwise. In order to do this, I'll have to separate the physical attack tag for regular weapons from the physical attack skills. Not hard to do, just time consuming.
*Dungeons: Depending on several factors right now. If the Overworld Field abilities goes through, then several dungeons will get revamped to fit in with this. If not, then some of the earlier dungeons will probably be revamped to be longer (i.e. Forest of Magic, Bamboo Forest, Eientei). This also includes fixing up puzzles and making them fairer, as well as implementing new puzzles into later dungeons (some of which I already have ideas for, but haven't worked on due to well...obviously not working on this game!).


For those wondering about the Elemental and Status buffs, reason why they don't stack is because I'll need a "Condition" for each element and status, so that when the character gets the buff, it activates a status that activates a common event to switch that character's weapon to a similar weapon but with different attributes. Note that there are roughly 13 attributes and 22 statuses that are in this game that can be used by the player...so in order to have ONE weapon with all possible combinations, that would be one weapon copied 286 times. Which is far too much even if it would make it more unique, considering the sheer size of this game. So there's the reason for those not stacking together. It gets knocked down to roughly 35 copied weapons otherwise. That should be good enough, no? And that depends if I MAKE some of these statuses usable by the player such as Charm and Sap.



So there's your updates on that! I'm fairly certain that there's others that I'm forgetting in this. If there are, I'll just post down below on this! A lot to come, and a lot to do...any help on this is still welcomed of course!
