What antivirus do you have on your computer or laptop(For I don't know if you have a laptop or desktop)?

I apologize if you've stated a fix for this in the last 49 pages (XD), but I'm experiencing serious flashing issues with the game while it is running at the same time as iTunes (AKA Every 2-4 seconds, the game screen appears to reload by deleting itself, so there are a few milliseconds of black screen followed by the game screen, which is a huge pain on the eyes. Also, I didn't attempt this with any other applications, aside from document folders, chrome, and behind the scenes operations; which didn't appear to cause any problems. BTW, I'm running Windows 7 on a laptop if that helps). I know you've put a ton of effort in making sure your game sounds work properly, but what if the user wants to listen to their own music at the same time as playing the game (as was in my case)?

Also, the mute toggle only seems to work for sounds, AKA when changing areas, the area change tones made noise, as well as the starting menu. Is there anyway you could entirely mute the game? (this is only relevant for me if the previous problem is fixed [although I guess I could try Pandora...], if not, obviously I can mute my laptop. Also, before you take that statement the wrong way, I think the music is great, its just that my family is more appreciative of iTunes ambiance than Pokemon ambiance)


From what I've seen, this game looks fantastic, with excellent fan support to keep the project going. Keep up the great work!

Yeah, that flickering issue. I have no idea why it happens, but it seems to only happen in full screen. so press F4 to turn it into windowed mode, which should fix it.

With the sound, the game's engine doesn't have any sort of global mute, which is a pain, as i have to fake a mute. It doesn't work all to well, and stuff like battle animations would always have sound unless i make a second copy of every attack in which i remove sounds.


But, since you have windows 7, you can change the volume of every application sperately, as it's an operating system feature.

-so click on the volume thing on the right hand side of the bottom bar thing,
-click mixer,
-then look for RPG_RT.exe and
-click mute.

Thanks for the replies :D


An update on the demo front. v7 is probably still ways out, but to quench your thirst, I'll be releasing a v7 preview demo soon.
It'll have all the new features and stuff of v7, but will only go up to Necro.
-Yep it's a demo, of a demo.

It'll be out in the next few weeks, the good thing about it? your save file from the v7 preview demo will be able to transfer to the full v7.

I just came back to check too and i was thinking why not make a Nuzlocke Mode for this game. Kinda like the Nuzlocke challenge except rule out the catching pokemon rule and just make it that your pokemon die when they faint

The battle with XDR would be a reason not to do that. Eevee is the only one you can use to battle and unless you grind and make Eevee and all the others lvl 50, most people will probably lose that fight at least once. Then that would mean you would have to start the game completely over because you couldn't beat him. Also, what happens if Eevee were to faint in battle? You can't get rid of Eevee. If you want the Nuzlocke challenge, you would do better to implement it upon yourself by depositing the "dead" pokemon in the box and leaving them there.

If there was a Nuzlocke mode for the game I'm sure that mode of the game would be programmed differently to fit with a nuzlocke. Not sure personally how well it would fit with SPEE but actually does sound like a nice feature for other games.

On the note of shinies on the other page I ended up finding 3 overall but only scanned 2, as with the first encounter I didn't even know there were shinies until I found that one and looked up on it. I found a Spearow & two Rattata, are there any other shiny Pokémon so far?

A demo of a demo? sounds awesome. I like being able to transfer the demo demo save to the demo. Looking forward to the next release though, should be fun.

and you forge/refine at the pc in Pokécenters and it lets you create any items you have the required items for.

I ran into a problem. It is my like 3rd playthrough, and im trying to go for an solo eeveeon run. I had to use 1 other pkmn in my party for the xxlionheartxx fight b/c he kept on 1 hit KO ing me, but that's not the issue. Anyway, after I fight and beat XDR, since i already have eeveeon, the game just jumps right to the desert, but them I get an error that says something like the hero does not exist, and then the whole game closes. I've tried adding pkmn to my party but I accidentally saved 1 step before the screen changes to the distorted graphics (XDR's doing), so im technically stuck.... is there a way to "teleport" to the last pkmn center I've been to? or a way to bypass the error?
Love the game, music (I know its mostly FF but its still good), and storyline. Can't wait for V8!!!

Picked it up again today out of boredom, and I noticed that some overworld sprites are offset. (Actually, I only noticed the male TR sprite, but I'm sure there are more.)
Just thought I'd put that out there.

EDIT: Does anyone remember whether I released a demo for my graphics update or not? Might be working on SPEE RMXP again

EDIT2: @Above: Send me your save file, I'll teleport you. No promises that it's going to be the last PC, mostly because I have no idea which one that is.

I've finally gotten around to playing the game! So I'll give you some criticism of what I saw throughout.

--

To begin, I'd like to say that the game shut off as I was saving in Amplus City (after leaving Khubla Town), meaning I didn't get to finish the game. It said there was insufficient memory. I believe this was because of the other 13 save files in the game at the time. I didn't know how to delete the save files, so I didn't bother with them. But now I wish I had. My save file was completely wiped after this experience. I wish I could have continued playing. :C

To escape this problem in the future, I would suggest deleting ALL saved data already in the game as to allow the player a completely fresh experience.

--

Story

I was really intrigued by the idea and thought it was executed well, but it could have been better. At the beginning of the game, I had no clue that the characters knew they were in a game world, making it seem really odd when some NPCs talked about the game itself. I would suggest throwing some back-story at the start of the game, or even have your mother tell you something about the game world, bringing the whole realization to the player at the start, rather than having them find out on their own.

--

Script/Dialogue

I thought the script was second-rate. It brought the game down, and could have been a lot better. It needs improvement. None of the characters have any personality in the dialogue--or they do, but it's all the same: that of a 12 year old. Sometimes it seemed very trivial and elementary, especially that of the AIs, which I expected to be high-and-mighty formal figures, who used intricate language and syntax. But they seemed to be childish, just like the player. There were a lot of misspellings, grammar mistakes, syntax errors, and just uses of the wrong words occasionally.

I also thought the usage of curse words was unneeded. Now, don't get me wrong, I have nothing against curse words (I curse all the time), I just thought you got carried away occasionally and used them too much. It didn't help with the dialogue in any way, and actually just made it worse in my opinion.

I would suggest establishing personalities for the characters of the game and weaving that into their dialogue.

--

Graphics

I really enjoyed the 2 Gen graphics. I thought it was very nostalgic and worked wonders for the ambiance of the game. I thought you did a great job on the mapping (although there was the occasional area that I wasn't quite fond of).

But I thought the custom graphics could use some work. Namely, the mugshots and the story sequence about the AIs. They don't seem on par with the rest of the game and could use some work. I wasn't fond of the AI trainer sprites either.

--

Features

I didn't quite understand how to play the elemental cards game. I'd suggest having a tutorial at the first time you play it, or at least have some directions in the girl's dialogue. I got tired of trying to figure it out after the third time.

I also didn't understand ManMan 2000 until I found the option on the PC. I really liked that feature though.

The way of capturing Pokemon was really interesting and exciting. Kudos to you for that. Although I found it odd how others could have Pokemon, unless they were also corrupted Pokemon...which would make sense I guess...But there was the occasional person that talked about catching Pokemon...? Hmm...

I would suggest having a few people scattered around the region that give you a free capture ball, so you can catch a wild Pokemon. I'm not sure, I just thought it was odd that others could catch Pokemon, but you couldn't.

--

Overall, I really enjoyed the game! It was the most fun I had playing a fan game in a long time. It was a nostalgic, engaging and exciting game that I would recommend downloading to anyone. I feel like with some editing, it could be even better.

Good news DarkDoom, I have my old laptop back, which means I can play the game again. So, now I am ready for the new demo.

Don't know why the game shut off. I've never experienced that. As for the deletion of files, you can go to the game's folder and delete the save files.

I don't think it's really necessary to tell you that the NPCs know they're in a game when they acknowledge the fact that they are in a game.

The elemental cards game was just a side game. It has nothing to do with the game really and I found it pretty easy to understand after playing it a few times.

ManMan collects items while you're walking around so it makes it easier to refine items. I thought the guy that you bought it from explained that, but if not, DarkDoom will more than likely add that.

That would change the originality of the game.

Well, that's what happened. It's because of the other previously saved files. I think it would just be best if he deleted them before exporting as to completely escape any problems one might face. Does he really want to take a chance and have everyone experience a problem like myself?

Quote:

I just thought it was awkward. I didn't know they were in a game and thought it was strange the first few times I saw a comment by an NPC. I didn't know until the first encounter with M. I just think it would be best to make it clear at the beginning of the game to escape confusion.

I know it was just a side game. But I wanted to know how to play it, because it was bugging me that I couldn't figure it out. If it's there, it should be playable, so the fact that I couldn't play it was bothering me. It's something new to the Pokemon realm, as well, meaning it should have a tutorial like every other custom thing in this game, or even an explanation.

Quote:

I figured it out, though. So it's not a big deal.

Quote:

Not really. The game is already really original with the battle system, story line, mix of graphic styles, locations, and scripted mini games. It was just really odd that others could "catch" Pokemon, but the player could not.

You could make it to where the Professor gives you a capture ball for doing an errand, and at the end of a wild battle, you have an option to use it or not. That way they are limited, and have stressed importance on them.

Remember, these are just suggestions. c:

I think the way we get Pokemon is fine and should be left that way. It is a major part of the game to collect and "purify" the corrupted data. (Sound like Digimon much?)

I really do like this game. I've played through it multiple times and I've let's played it. The only suggestion I would make would be to make the game harder because I've never had a Pokemon faint and I don't grind at all. That's the only thing I don't like about the game is that it is too easy.
