I have an interesting project for someone...

Postby Zero » Thu Jun 11, 2009 10:01 pm

So, I was thinking earlier today, and I decided that it would be kinda cool to play through the game as Dekar.

Now obviously, this means quite a bit of work for someone, replacing the instances of Maxim with Dekar, possibly even swapping them? It would also call for the ability for Dekar to use the Dual Blade, since you wouldn't end up with Maxim in your party at the end of the game. Or would you?

In any case, however one would decide to go about doing so, I think it would be cool to play through the game as Dekar. So, anyone interested?

From Reli's old GG & PAR (and in the process, patches) topic:

IPS patch: Maxim looks like Dekar:
http://www.geocities.com/bernardalgain/ ... eDekar.zip

Usage (with ZSNES):
Unzip the patch and give it the same name as your ROM (ex.: if you ROM is named Lufia2.smc, the patch must be named Lufia2.ips). Move it to ROM directory. When ZSNES loads the ROM, the message "IPS patched" should appear.

Notes:
- Most of Maxim's sprites are replaced with Dekar's sprites, but some "rarer" ones aren't yet.
- Dekar still looks like Dekar (but this could be changed too).

Oh sweet thanks. I thought I looked through the patches thing, apparently not well enough...thanks!

I might use RPG Maker to make a game entirely based on Dekar...Any support for anything like that? Like people that would help me get sprites and stuff?

Don't tell anyone, but I was playing with the thought of adding chapters to my own game with the stories of our heroes before they met Maxim. What I can do is give you the spritesheets I constructed from the sprites that can be found at forfeit island, but the rest is up to you;

For every character block, the top row is normal movement, second is when lifting objects, third is to push, and the bottom consists of jump and fall sprites, both static. Good luck!

Oh cool thanks. Now, let's see how well RPG Maker wants to cooperate... :P

Zero, I could say "go for it", but doing a single LEVEL with RPGmaker is a big damn task. An entire game requires several months... I wish you luck on it, but Ive seen several people fail with this in the past.

Thank you capt'n obvious.

Also, another thing I want to ask. If there's a way if you want to. Perhaps maybe we can have some Iris sprites, please? It would make an interesting story.

Keep it fun guys.

It's perfectly doable, given enough time, talent and determination; as long as you have clear goals, and don't fret to alter them as you go along. Just don't set harsh deadlines if you're working alone, it will only motivate you less :)

Sorry, been busy.

Anyway, yeah I know how long it takes, but I'm pretty experienced with RPG Maker 2003, so I think it'll be fine. Only thing is, it may be a while, because my little brother and I are working on something at the moment.
