Okay how are you opening the file?

Are you using the icon with the swords called, Pokemon Odyssey?

I've just tried it and I don't get any errors

I'm still looking into this.

It's very strange.

Okay, I guess I should've posted controls

Z is the action button, x is the cancel button, enter is the start button

and obviously the arrows move you around.

Sorry about confusion.

And to all those who can't play for some reason, I'll try and help you sort it out.

Hmmmm, there sometimes is an error because of the way they are loaded.

They shouldn't happen all the time.

When you talk to someone, the flower animation messes up...

And Uing says "None of the scientist here". Shouldn't that be "scientists"?

Also, "it's power" should be "its power". "Containts" should be "contains".

Finally, I can't seem to attack in battle :(

Hmmm, seems to be an error with vista.
I downloaded the game on my XP desktop and loaded fine.

I enjoyed the game.
I liked the screens when you opten the game first(the stuff before selecting the new game). I'm so used to the Rm2k3 stuff, it was nice to see a start-up like the way the pokemon games do.
Kyledoves shinoh tiles look really nice at Odysseys resolution. When showing text, the flowers go crazy lol.
The real time clock is cool.
I actually liked the battle system.
Really really well done man. I seriously don't no if you need to worry about it. It's fine. Like this is a fan game after all. I enjoyed the battle. I was battling a Bulbasaur (I picked Totodile)- the guy nearly killed me!! I had one HP by the end of the battle lol.

But,
I glitched the game durning the storyline events, by walking around when I wasn't ment to be walking around. Both when in the lab, and with dawn on the route. The game crashed
Oh,
The text is a bit weird the way it kinda goes funky just before it goes to the second line.


Overall, I really liked it. I was looking at the game in sphere, reading the scripts and looking at the maps, and I can tell you put alot of effort in! Good job.

I'm not sure why you couldn't attack in battle Wichu, i've never had this problem. I'll fix those text problems.

The reason why the flowers go crazy is because, i still need to set up the FPS throttling for the text, because the Map Engine and the Frame Rate are set at different rates, when the text box is opened the map engine hands over the frame rate to the video buffer, which in this case, is unthrottled.

I don't think I rushed the game, it's just sometimes there's errors that the game maker just wont notice. Especially run time errors, because I have all the required files I dont have to worry, where as someone who hasnt got sphere will maybe get problems.

So what did everyone actually think to the game, give a rating out of 10 and reasons why please.

Yes it is playable, it does work, people have played it, try redownloading it, or downloading the latest version of sphere from www.spheredev.net.

I'm sorry that it hasn't worked for you, i'm not sure why everyone else can play it but not you :/

Are you having problems with the .rar file?

just download and install winrar, it's a much better file version, compresses smaller, as I can't overload my webspace too much

Nope, no files to load...

Also; there's something wrong with the first rival battle... After I lost (yes I lost) my rival left, leaving the screen tinted, and the battle music kept playing, along with the normal music... It corrected itself when I entered the first town again, but when I went back to the route, it tinted again and played both musics again...

Finally after that awful trip, I tried to save after getting my Pokedex... Long story short: ten minutes later it was still saving so I closed the program....

Bugs, need I say more?

hmmm saving shouldn't take that long. I'm not sure why it does. I'll look into it.

The reason the music overlaps each other is because the battle script is missing the command to stop the battle theme
