Title: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL
Post by: tijit on October 18, 2008, 09:03:45 pm
Gentlemen.



This is the moment we've all been waiting for. More than 1.5 years since I was like "hey Matt, iwbtg was fun.. wouldn't it be kewel if I made an engine in game maker for this? Maybe make a couple of levels, I'm sure some people would be interested in playing it...."

*play epic music*

DUN DUN DUN DUN DA-BURRRR

http://www.moddb.com/games/i-wanna-be-the-fangame (http://www.moddb.com/games/i-wanna-be-the-fangame)
^All download links of all version can be found there.

Please note the text file that can be found in the "achievements" folder. Note that the first few people with enough skills to complete the entire game with ALL TEN secret items will be granted super powers. (not really, just can't think of an appropriate prize yet)

You know the routine:
Shift - Jump/Dbl Jump
Z - Shoot
Left/Right - Move
F2 - start from beginning
R - start from last save
Q - die
Alt+F4 / Esc Key / X in corner - Quit

[/font]

Hey so like.. me and some university mates are completely obsessed with iwbtg and decided to make a tribute/fangame.

The game has (we hope) original level design and gameplay.. we've gone for the whole 'misdirection' style puzzle a lot, but at the beginning we've just put a 'shit flies everywhere randomly at you' style puzzle, to get the player used to the new jumping engine (which is slightly different.. there's a lot more emphasis on the variable jumping, hold shift to jump higher)
Games ripped off include:
Destruction II, Wonder Boy III, Portal, Pacman, Doom as well as music from Lylat Wars and the original iwbtg.

Currently, we have 3 different paths, and one of the bosses is done (the most obvious path.. just go left)

Here's the Alpha:

Did you jump at the end or something? It's not supposed to kill you when it goes past like that. You gotta wait for it to go past, then it goes into a state where it reveals it's back a fair bit, and you just gotta keep shooting it until it dies.


Nice work, by the way, considering I only released this earlier today :)
You should try going one of the other paths now.. going right is the next most complete way.

i dont like the video of that boss....
it seems too time consuming, i think it needs more parts where you have the ability to shoot him...

looks good though.

edit: played, need changeable controls.

I also get killed by the boss at that same spot

did you re-upload the fixed file?
Title: Re: yet another fangame :P
Post by: tijit on October 20, 2008, 03:04:47 am
Alright guys, no I haven't updated the file yet.. I might not post another demo until it's finished.

@Zaraki: Believe it or not.. I only started this game on Saturday the 11th.. I'm just calling it an alpha because it's the first pre-release.

@rad: The boss is just a pattern memorisation thing, and at the very end it goes into a state where it's easy to hit. Basically, I don't want the player to kill it before reaching the end of it's finite state machine.

Yup.. I'm working on it. I completed the pacman level and the lead-up to the pokemon fight. The other boss I currently have planned is going to be 'Snake'.. but it's finite state machine is going to be horrendous. It may be easier just to give it ai.....

yea, exactly Can it be fixed or sumthin?.
 I cant beat the boss since it's too low in the last phase :( It's not So hard to get there, but still :(
I can't realize how to finish the plane screen, when I go past the three spikes (middle one goes up) the plane comes and bombaz me to death.

About that save thing you have to just press R and you will be teleported were you were last time.
That plane screen you have to go down, not right. So dont go past the three spikes.

Post by: Zaraki on October 25, 2008, 08:43:19 am
Ok ty kind sir.
Edit:
Okay,. I found a glitch exactly here. If you save there, you can't move either left or right unless you jump first. The Kid just walks on his place.


Edit 2: sorry:( another one,..,.,


Edit3: Sorry for all this editing lol :P
...
yES! Beat the demo both paths :D

is there a up / down path? that would be so cool :P
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]

I have finished Middle path like 5 times because i failed that recording thing couple of times And Right path i have finished 2 times And Left path 0 times because cant get past that boss  >:(

I have to admit that you are very good at glitching  ;D

I found this http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3tJ-kp_i9Cw (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3tJ-kp_i9Cw)  ;D

Post by: Zaraki on October 25, 2008, 09:55:41 am
Coooooolll... tyvm :)

Found 2 glitches, sorry agn.

Jump from the screen befoer boss to the one before it, youll hover in the air, the when you go back you die.

Stand extremely close to a spike on its right side facing left, then press right and you die. (found by Koppis, he forgot his password and can no longer get to these forums :P)

Btw @rad, I love the first screen of right path too :D man I lol'd so much..

Finished (all?) 3 pathes two times :D

Time for some more editing. Check this pic out.
Dunnolol how but somehow I managed to glitch myself there.

Post by: tijit on October 25, 2008, 09:00:04 pm
zomg.. people have made walk-throughs and everything.

Yeah, there is a 'middle' path,I hope someone other than akutsi found it.. and once you collect the three keys (from beating the bosses) that door with the green lock in the second frame on the left? you'll be able to open that, or it'll become a platform moving up, or something. Haven't decided yet.

@Zaraki: The first glitch you posted.. with the plane scene, you shot the plane down too quickly: That's not a bug, if you shoot the plane before it destroys the platforms out of that room, you're stuck.

The spike bug I already knew about.. couldn't quite work out what was causing, changing the player's mask just messed up more stuff so I'll work it out later.

Watching Akutsi's vid.. he took a shotcut in one section I hadn't anticipated.. so I gotta try and stop the player from doing that.

How do you get past the Doom thing?
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: Zaraki on October 26, 2008, 02:14:22 am
Yea, I did it agn, in the last middle path room, if you save to a certain spot up there and then quickly die by the spikes, you can fall ffrom the left side all downn.. ;D

: show
Oh and... [hint] in the room with the "mirror Kid", second middle path room, you can also go down left, but you just drop some time and die in water. There could be 1st secret item or something there ;D [/hint]
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: tijit on October 26, 2008, 03:57:31 am
I didn't really consider putting secret items in the game.. thanks for the reminder ;)
Now that you mention it, I gotta work out what the items are going to look like. The boss rewards are keys.. I think I'll just have secret items as weapons, like in iwbtg, but put some easter egg graphic or something in the rooms where you find them.

@DimJim: You can't get past the Doom thing.. for some reason when I compiled it with GM7 the collisions changed or something, and the boss hits you when he spins from right to left when he's not supposed to. The bug is fixed, and the boss will be fully playable in the next demo (which will contain all 3 bosses so far, and perhaps the beginning of the path to another one)

I'm going to have an underwater section, where the player will be able to double jump all the time.

Not entirely sure why my saving system is bugging out, but oh well. The main bug is where you sometimes get caught in walls when jumping up or falling down from one room to the next, I know what causes this, and may have a fix for it in the next release.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: Zaraki on October 26, 2008, 04:59:34 am
Ohh the boss was from doom? I was just thinking about it, like where is it from.

uhmm. suggestion, can you do it so that saving also saves the places of portals? That would make the portal part bit more comfortable.

And--
If you ever need beta testers I wanna be One ;D
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: tijit on October 29, 2008, 03:55:54 am
Finished the pokemon fight.. will need public input though, not sure what other people are going to think of what I did.
I'll release a beta once I've finished the boss roundoff, and the 3rd boss path.


Instead of having a menu, you start in a room where you pick your difficulty level, but you actually get to control the player while doing it. So, the harder the difficulty you wanna do, the harder it is to actually get to that difficulty level.. if you catch what I'm talking about. You'll see when I release the demo ;)
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: Levirules on October 29, 2008, 10:46:35 am

Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]

Post by: tijit on November 01, 2008, 06:18:19 am
BOBBSSSON! No revealing stuff.

Okay, so all I gotta do is add finish the third boss, and add round off for that, and the beta is ready for releasage. The third boss is based on an old nes game called 'bubble bobble'. It's underwater, so you have lower gravity, and can double jump all the time. That made for some interesting spike and platform puzzles, needless to say.

Stop posting glitches zaraki :/
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: Levirules on November 01, 2008, 10:55:22 am
ahhhh!! bubble bobble!!! I love that game!!!!!!  Anybody ever beat it?  Hell, I think I'll find the ROM and go play it!!

Or, maybe I'll play Dead Space.  Or Fallout 3.  Or the Mirror's Edge demo.  Or maybe I'll open my unopened copy of Little Big Planet.

On second thought, I'll leave Bubble Bobble to the memories...

Oh man, best fangame ever. It plays so much like the original, i just love it.

I only have played the right path so far. Im actually kind of proud that I got past the portals part without having to look anything up. Good thing my room-mate and I have been getting baked and playing Portal a lot lately =p.

There should definitely be some sort of cake reference in that section somewhere.

Post by: Samson007 on November 04, 2008, 03:30:16 pm
Man, can't wait for more of this. I went through all 3 paths until I hit the "demo" wall.

Some of it was quite hard, lots of trial and error. I recall one instance
: show
where you have to dodge all those plants shooting at you while you make your way across the room........at the end you fall to the ground..........well i didnt think the spike down there would shoot up and bite me in the ass. I laughed when it killed me, cause it took a long time to get the timing right just to get that far.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [alpha]
Post by: tijit on November 04, 2008, 06:11:36 pm
As I said before, beta will be released once I complete the third boss, and the roundoff for that one. I'm having a bit of trouble deciding on what this boss is going to do.. it's bubble bobble, and the player is in an underwater environment, so he can double jump all the time. Some ideas from all you guys would be kewl ;)

Obviously, a big dodge-em-up would be in order...

Ummm anybody know where to get pokemon sounds? Not music, I already got that, of like... attack sound effects and stuff. Greatly appreciated ;)

Also, anyone who has already playtested this game.. I'll put your alias in the credits.

@Kòppís ^^,: The stop signs were supposed to be temp graphics.. but never got around to fixing it :P
Perhaps I'll have to have an obsession with stops signs, instead of the moon.

@Stephen42: And you haven't even played pacman yet. About the jumping.. well I might make the maximum vertical velocity of the player a little lower, but other than that it's intentional.

Also don't worry guys... I got the greatest idea ever for bubble bobble. You.. just.. wait..

As for an exact date for when the game will be released.. hmm. Not quite sure about that. My last exam is on the 18th, and then I've got 3 months break. The beta should be released before the 18th, and the final game should be released before the new year.
Scratch that.. I sat down and just worked my ass of for more than 6 hours today and got a shitload done.. expect the beta tomorrow.
No more working on it today.. I have a headache :/

Don't forget to play through the doom path as well, the round-off in that section is quite the monster ;)
Plus, you need all three keys to get to the next section...

Saves should be compatible, but don't count on it. If you do load off an old one, save straight away or it might mess up.

so right now im at the portal part...  and the shooting the switches while in the air throws me off, becuas shoot is z.

what the hell do i do there?
the portal room with the 2 switches, and two turrets.

edit:
i found a glitch...
k, so on that portal room im still on, if you hold left and right and walk off the edge where the save point is...
you will be stuck in a block, if you pressjump you will warp to the 2nd room of the game dead.

edit, i fucked myself

So far I'm really enjoying playing this game. You really have captured the essence of IWBTG with this, so much so that it feels like an expansion pack or something similar.

However, my only problem is the lack of remapping the keys. Just like Rad, I have a poorly functioning shift key and it makes it excessively difficult for quick jumping, especially with the new (faster) jumping mechanic.
: show
It really is making the pokemon battle impossible for me, while if I were able to remap I'm certain I'd be finished with it.
I'm just much better on the trigger with my right hand.

Hey, Rad told me the controls weren't modifiable so I went and posted this guide, I hope you will implement it.

If you need help, just PM me your email and I'll help you through msn. Btw, I have yet to test this game, but I'll do right now.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: tijit on November 06, 2008, 11:25:02 pm
Thanks, but I thought of something else. This is what I thought up:

Why not just have both sets of controls? Should be anything wrong with that.
So, now you can also use A and D to move, W to jump, and not sure what alt shoot should be. Somebody said Down key, but I might make it the right Control button instead.

@chaosrain: That method wouldn't work, because I've got keyboard mapping in one section, and everything will just become messed up.

I may have another release today or tomorrow, with the modified controls and a couple of sections after what was in the beta.

@rad: You are stuck, basically. Two solutions:
1. Start again
2.
: show
Open the save file using notepad or something, and set the player's coordinates to (128,64). That should put you in a safe position.

Although I will change the trigger for what's supposed to happen in that section, so that player's can't get stuck like that in future.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: Game on November 06, 2008, 11:39:10 pm
For alternate action controls, I typically use the numpad. Using the right control key probably wouldn't be the best idea considering that it's right next to shift, enter, the dropdown menu key, and the windows key.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: tijit on November 07, 2008, 12:17:34 am
hmm.. good point I guess. Maybe I'll just make the down key shoot, like that other guy suggested.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: chaosrain37 on November 07, 2008, 01:43:12 am
What do you mean with "Keyboard mapping in one section"?

Anyways, I just played the game... And it was awesome. I vote for this game as the best IWBTG fangame ever. It's so good it depresses me a bit that it's name is "I wanna be the fangame". It deserves something way more official, as it feels a lot like the true sequel to IWBTG. Now you only need a storyline. =)

Also, the second set of controls could be:

A - Left
D - Right
V - Shoot
B - Jump

But thats only a suggestion.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: Rad on November 07, 2008, 02:18:44 am

Is that a question or an answer, Akutsi?

If it's an answer:
: show
Are you saying I have to shoot repeatedly at something during the fight? I've shot at him multiple times, and the only time he takes damage is when his mouth is open for that first attack. After that, he just floats there doing absolutely nothing, and shots just bounce off of him. I've been doing this for a half hour, and he hasn't done squat.

All right, well, since I've finished that and have gotten to the next gigantic "DEMO" sign, I guess I should give some feedback on everything that I've encountered.

Also, in before "Screenshot or GTFO"

: show
(http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb104/RandomSmoger/Demo.jpg)


The bosses:

: show
Cacodemon from DOOM

From what I experienced, it's a memorization fight. It's tough until you get the entire cycle down and know where you should be standing and when, and even then some of the things can be a pain to dodge. I enjoyed fighting him simply because it had an "epic" feel to it. As far as I'm concerned, this boss encounter is just fine as is and doesn't need any changes. Great job on this one.


: show
Gary Oak from Pokemon

A nice assortment of pokemon with a nice assortment of attacks. While a few attacks were well beyond obvious, they pretty much had to be in order for the player to be able to dodge them (Rattata's "tackle" and "quick attack"). The random variation in attack patterns was good enough to throw me off a few times (and subsequently get me killed), and that "supersonic" that Tentacool uses was absolutely infuriating for me (since my shift key sucks terribly for rapid jumping and is even worse for rapid shooting). I found the "acid" attack to be a little easy to dodge. Most of the time I could just stand there and not be hit by any of the projectiles, so maybe that can be retuned a little to make it a little more dangerous? Mew as the final pokemon was a nice addition to bring everything from the previous pokemon into the battle all at once. That's where the real variation began. However, I'm a bit baffled as to Pikachu's purpose in this battle. As far as I saw, he just sat there until I shot him dead. Was I just quick on the trigger and didn't give him enough time for his attack, or is he just meant to be cannon fodder? The pokeball was a nice addition at the end too, as a final kick in the pants. I figured the battle was done and that the ball may transport me somewhere, and then realized that I'd have to do the entire thing all over again (I didn't make that same mistake twice). Pretty good fight, took me a while to beat. Could use a little more adjustment with some of the attacks though.


: show
Bub from Bubble Bobble

I have some big issues with this boss encounter. My first issue is that it was way too easy. I beat it my second try after being told that the real battle was in its belly. Yes it was a gigantic dodge-fest, but with infinite jumps it just didn't seem very difficult to dodge everything. Maybe having objects start falling at some point in the fight would toughen it up some, so there's stuff coming at you from all directions (and effectively giving more for the player to pay attention to and juggle), or things that slowly home in on you like the ectoplasms from the Dracula fight in IWBTG to keep you moving. Just a few suggestions.

My next issue is figuring out that you have to go into its mouth. After that first attack (the line of bubbles), one would think that that is the boss encounter (especially considering that it seemingly takes damage when it's hit while its mouth is open). Some things need to be added or taken out of this first part, because the way that it currently is, it's impossible to figure out unless you're trying to get yourself killed or you're told. I, for one, am not a player who likes to lose, and as such, I typically don't like to get myself killed and avoid enemy contact at all costs. Entering the foe's mouth (which is usually certain death) is completely out of the question.

The first thing that needs changing is the window of opportunity given to get inside. Either have it open its mouth again at frequent intervals or have it use an attack that immediately kills the player. Jumping around in the room for a half hour thinking that the encounter is glitched because it won't do anything is not fun. There needs to be some hint that the player needs to go into the mouth either by death almost immediately after the mouth closes or perhaps by complete accident. You could blend this in as a part of the boss fight by giving Bub a set of attacks (maybe easily avoidable since it isn't the "real" boss fight, and could open windows of opportunity for the player to get inside) which could include a not-so-easily-avoidable attempt to eat the player, and if successful would put the player in its belly for the real boss encounter. This would also get rid of the need to suicide or restart if the first opportunity is missed. In addition to this, maybe removing the ability for Bub to take damage would help encourage the player to get inside the mouth as soon as possible on repeat attempts, unless you'd rather stick with the illusion that Bub is the boss fight rather than his belly.

Overall, this encounter definitely needs a lot of work.


As for level design, great job on that. As far as I'm concerned, it's done rather well and definitely captures the essence of IWBTG. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to future builds.

@Akutsi:
Aww... that's not actually how you're supposed to beat the pacman level.. if you keep following the yellow dude like that you're supposed to just get crushed imbetween the two guys and die :/ Never mind.. that way looks pretty tricky anyway, but here's what I intended for the player to do:
http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=xSchBcSuOYw (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=xSchBcSuOYw)
I need to make some modifications to the pacman section anyways.

@rad:
: show
Yes, that's what is supposed to happen. If you try to outrun the explosions, they kill you at the last possible moment. 'Misdirection' is always the clue - see hundreds of signs saying 'go right!' that means go left ;)


@Zaraki: This is the thing I don't really like about the pokemon fight.. but if you stop jumping and shooting him just before he attacks, it'll take a little longer to beat but there's more of a guarantee you'll survive.

@Game:
: show
Pikachu I put in there for the lolz, basically. He just sits there and takes it.
Now, I thought the B.B. boss was too easy, I wanted to find out what the community thought first before making changes though. I'll make it so something other than the spike ceiling attacks you from the top of the screen. And I'll make the modifications to the beginning of the boss as well.



EDI T(S):
okai. Made a customizable controls thing for all you guys. I'll probably release the source for it too.
Because there are more changes to be made than I anticipated, post-beta may not be released today. Sry. Tomorrow or Monday hopefully, depending on how much I study for the exam I have on Tuesday.

SECOND EDI T(S):
I fixed up the bobble boss a bit, and changed a couple of bits on the portal path.
Also, that bug to do with getting stuck in the walls in vertical room transitions is now fixed.

Finished all three bosses.

Man that was fucking.......i mean.........I both love this game, and want you to die at the same time for what you just put me through.

: show
The temple thing after the pokemon.......come on man. Some of that was just plain wrong. The only screen on this game I have no idea how to beat is also in that temple place. The upper path though, after the big red boss thing. Right at the end of it where you make a jump.....and the 2 spikes freakin' slide right into you the second you hit the ground. I dont see even a split second window in there to jump over anything.

That whole temple place is like the spiked corridor on crack, on every screen.

I enjoyed pretty much every part of this game.....EXCEPT! The freaking tentacool. Why, why , why in the name of all that is right with the world you would you make an attack that reverses your keys? It made me want to pull my hair out.


Also found a glitch with the tentacool. If you die right after it uses the attack, it sometimes starts you back at the last save with the reverse keys still on. I had to restart the game twice because of it.

About the two spikes that slide to the left in that corridor, you have to jump in between the two spikes, and as you land, start running left and jump again to avoid the second spike. It has to be done very quickly.

Against Tentacool, that first "acid" attack, that's the most dodging I've ever done against it and was unusual for me. The second and third acid attacks are more typical of what I get (mostly just standing there and not getting touched).

Yeah, thats what I was trying to do. But I always got wiped out before I could get a jump off. I guess after 30 or so tries I just kinda assumed I was doing it wrong.......maybe not.

Either way, cant wait for more of this game. In my opinion its much harder than the original. SOOOOOOOOOOOO many jumps that require pinpoint accuracy in this one.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: tijit on November 08, 2008, 05:03:11 am
Tentacool glitch will be obsolete, as the changed controls system won't allow for that glitch to occur anymore.

I changed tentacool a lot, the poison things at aim at you, so there's a lot more dodging, and instead of the confusion thing affecting you when it's on the screen, you'll actually have to get hit by it first to become confused. There'll be little question marks that bob around your head ;)

Spiked corridor on crack you say? I like the sound of that.
Well, the post-boss scenes are supposed to be really hard, like in the original. They just seem harder because by now you're probably really good at the iwbtg scenes. Now you see one of the reasons I changed the vertical motion slightly, so that there's still stuff you gotta get used to.

Any other glitches people can think of?

I haven't given any feedback yet.

PS I'm not going to bother with spoiler tags, so if you haven't played it don't read.  You should probably know all this crap by now though, if you've been reading this thread. Anyway!

I played until the Doom boss in the demo, and I liked it, thought it was pretty fun.  Got the beta and took the right path.  I really liked most of it.  The Portal parts were pretty good, I liked the snake room solution as well.  The water part, however... not a fan.  That was the first time I had to stop because I was getting so frustrated.  I also had to come here to figure out what to do when you got the the Bubble Bobble boss.  A suggestion I have that might help guide the player to the solution a bit more is to make sure that attack kills The Kid (The Girl?).  That way, they'll have to find the way.

Anyways I like it so far, gonna keep playing for a bit more and then it's on to more Dead Space or Fallout 3!

Ok, room after Bubble Bobble, jumping out of the water is incredibly annoying.

if it's the room with the two horizontally moving platforms between a ceiling and floor of spikes, looks sorta like you're in a pyramid or something,

: show

The first thing that kills you, you have to get on a platform going right ( I think I used the bottom one first), trigger the ceiling thing that kills you and shoots the bricks out, jump on the platform going the other way, and fall back down the hole near the save until after the bricks pass.


Then,

: show

The spikes that come up from the floor, I would ride the upper platform as it goes to the right, then jump down and ride the lower one as it goes left, and repeat.  The platforms have a slightly different distance to traverse, so where they overlap will be different every time.  Eventually, you'll trigger the spikes to come up little by little and you can walk under them.

oh thankyou, i got it now..... I kept trying that, but i guess when you know that's how you're supposed to do it, then you have more confidence.
getting to the pokeyman's area... i dont see it.

everyone says the downward path, i dont see going down anywhere.

never mind found it.
i thought i already checked there though.

I do the first part the same way you do.

But
: show
after you get the bricks to come out and dodge them. I just get back on the lower platform. Quickly jump to the upper one while its going back to the left. Ride it all the way to where the spikes come up out of the ground. As soon as it the spikes vo up i just walk off the upper platform and do a quick jump to the underside of the spikes. =)


And the pokemon area is
: show
Right after pacman. Take the center path from the start.


Also, Akutsi, what do you use to record? Looks like it doesnt cause any lag or anything........I NEED THAT!

This is the only fangame for IWBTG that I've seen that really captures the feel of the original. Needless to say, I'm very impressed.

@Akutsi: Wuss :P

I feel like posting some walk-throughs of my own now.. on very hard.

@Levirules: With the water bit, what's the worst part of it, is it just hard getting used to the new water motion? I wanted a hard section right before the boss, so the player was, to an extent, used to the different motion system.
And yes, going back to normal after being used to unlimited jumps low grav is supposed to be really difficult :P I have, however changed that bit slightly.

The pyramid is from wonder-boy iii.. where a lot of the music and tiles are from. I like that game a lot :D
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: Levirules on November 08, 2008, 08:52:32 pm
Well, the water movement itself isn't bad.  It's the transition from swimming to not swimming.  I played this on medium, I don't remember if there's normally a save right there, I think it's a wuss save, but I kept having a hard time just getting out of the water and on to the ledge.  Kept hittin the spike.  As for the screen before the boss, I think it's just a bit too much.  Like, there's not really much that differentiates that screen from just a screen full of spikes; nothin that makes you laugh or say "that's cool," so the deaths were just more aggravating.  These are just small complaints though, the game is really good.  That boss in particular was a good fight.

I'm currently trying to figure out this "center path" that everyone keeps talking about.

Wow.. just figured it out...

Ok, another edit, I got to the Pokemon boss, and I found a bug - I think if you're holding shift while you die during the
: show
4th alien pokemon, when he uses the attack that messes up your controls, then the controls stay messed up after you press R to respawn.


AWESOME boss so far though.

Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: Purple_Shrimp on November 08, 2008, 09:37:24 pm
I only have two complaints about the game thus far:

why doesn't it have an X in the top right-hand corner?
the cacodemon music should be the theme for E1M1 from Doom.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta]
Post by: tijit on November 08, 2008, 09:49:20 pm
@purple shrimp:
1. Game Maker :/ If I set it so the X is there, the esc button would make the game automatically quit, and that sucks.
2. Neg. Lylat Wars music is so much more awesome and epic.. and adds to the hilarity of it all as well.

@LeviRules: That spike at the water transitions bit? I already removed it, it was annoying me as well. So, it won't be there in the next release.

In the next release, I'm also slowing the frame-rate slightly, so the vertical velocity won't seem as fast. This won't mess things up because I think the player and the bullets moved slightly too fast anyway. Hopefully the timing won't get messed because of this.

Now.. STORYLINE! I actually had thought of this a bit, but it was always my intention to make the player fight a certain thing that would kill you in the original, but you had no control over. That's my only clue.
As for the name of it, I was thinking of calling this 'i wanna be the kid', as like a prequel, but iwstk is the official prequel.. even if it's not finished or even being worked on :P
You guys can help suggest new names for the game if you want.

Post by: Purple_Shrimp on November 08, 2008, 09:56:30 pm
well, E1M1 Hangar does have the distinction of actually being in the same game as the Cacodemon. but it's your choice, I spose.

I'm pretty sure iwhbtg isn't an original idea either.

oh look, the beta v2:
http://www.mediafire.com/?iktyrwtjyvz (http://www.mediafire.com/?iktyrwtjyvz)(Had to change uploader.. stupid filesize limit)

So, lots of changes and a couple of new levels, as well as another filed called 'controls.exe', which you can change your controls, it's pretty self-explanatory, just click a button the press the button on the keyboard that corresponds to that.
The bubble bobble boss is now challenging (I hope) or at least harder than it was before...<insert generic "that's what she said" comment here> the tentacool is fixed.

I added the first secret item. I'm going to have 6 secret items in the levels released thus far, 2 on each path. One will be a potion of colour corresponding to the key you get from beating the boss at the end of that path, and the other will be random, probably from the game you're currently in, eg cake. (thx to whoever suggested that btw)

Enjoy :D

I have new videos for all the boss fights that I'll be uploading soon. When I get them up, I'll edit the links into this post, and probably remove the old ones since they're obsolete. I'm also definitely happy about being able to remap my keys. Now my controls just feel so much more natural to me. Time to get to work on the new beta 2 content.

: show
My new Cacodemon video has it dying before it can even get to its spin of death that was unavoidable in the alpha build.

I definitely like what you did with the Bub fight. It's a vast improvement over the old one, and holy hell, so much crap to dodge. My only problem now is that it's still a little too easy. Maybe you can increase the amount of hit points in the final phase so that the fight lasts a little longer? Just seemed to go by too quickly.

I like the new Tentacool attacks too. I actually have to go out of my way to dodge the acid attacks.


Boss videos:

Left path: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4e2Vnw_14g

Middle path: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrxY43ZKBWY

Right path: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3wDfeBDKy8

Edit:
: show
Not sure if this is intended or not, and Akutsi brought it up already, but in the key lift rooms, if you're standing on the lift during the screen transitions, you immediately die. In order to survive, you need to jump to make the screen transition.

Post by: Samson007 on November 09, 2008, 06:59:02 pm
I finished it!

Wowee that last section was tough.
: show
Riding the keyholes was fun, the whole fake floor thing was just nasty......took me forever to get through that room figuring out what was real and what wasnt. The whole chase sequence was brilliant. A lot of trial and error. At first I was like, "why is it just a black square? Is he going to put a picture in later?" But as I got farther I just started laughing. I had to turn sticky keys off just to do the water level in this game =p


I think I found a glitch of some sorts though.
: show
At the keyhole ride. If you just ride the thing to the top of the screen, are you supposed to die? Or is it supposed to let you just ride up. I think its the case of the screen above having instant death attributed to hitting the floor.....forces you to jump from the lower screen to the next one. Not a big deal, but something to look into. I also found myself occasionally falling through the keyhole platforms. Not sure if thats just me or the game.


Anyway, I have a video of the last sequence uploading right now. When I realized I was getting close I started filming. Really love that sequence. Will post the video when its up.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta v2 released!]
Post by: Levirules on November 09, 2008, 07:24:04 pm
You die because of the code that kills you when you hit the bottom of the screen.  What happens: You hit the top of the first screen, spawn at the bottom of the second screen, and fall to the bottom edge and die.  I think that should probably be fixed by either moving the player to on top of the platform in the second screen or removing the code that kills you when you hit the bottom of the screen.  Either way, it's not a bug that cripples that part of the game, since the room with the X's isn't incredibly hard.

Post by: tijit on November 11, 2008, 05:16:04 am
Alright.. well I've figured out what I'm doing for the whole 'secret items' thing.
In iwbtg, the secret items are usually in a single frame of their own. In iwbt fangame however, the secret items are going to have an extended 2-3 frames of their own, with huge bits of optional level design that people can skip if all they want to do is play through the game. One of the secret items (so far) even has it's own boss.

I'll give you a clue: "Well you found me.. was it worth it? ..."

Another thing I'm doing (which you may all find evil) is a room all by itself, in the final castle, with a little sign that says 'No Bows', and if you try to skip by it in medium, you get zapped. So you have to play on Hard, Very Hard, or Impossible to actually finish the game.

@DeLi: Holy shit!

Ummm.. yeah I wasn't really going to have dialogue as a huge thing in this game.. but seeing as so many people are willing to help out with that.. I might change my mind about that.

Okay, so I guess the three of you can fight over the following 3 voices:
-Potions Master (a key character in doing the non-trivial end to the game.. although this was supposed to be female.. the sprite was going to be of the witch from a link to the past, the one making mushroom brew)
-A mini boss.. not sure what yet
-Gary ("E.g. GO! PIKACHU!" and stuff)

Seeing as most people aren't going to find that anyway, I couldn't see the harm in putting up that vid :P
NOTE: Don't try to find it yet, it's not in the beta v2

there's a grammatical error at 0:27.

also, this is probably a stupid suggestion, but why not make the secret items do something? for example, one could make your bullets a few pixels larger. They wouldn't need to be big things - in fact, they shouldn't be - but it would mean there was an actual point to finding them rather than a bit of extra content after having beaten the Guy.

Yeah.. I noticed that error last time I playtested that bit.. and it's fixed now ;)

And yeah.. the secret items in this game do actually do something. Here is a motivational list:
1) you get access to the alternate ending
1) you have to go through more bosses and level design and stuff to get them.. I mean isn't that why you're playing it?
1) they're cool
1) yeah.. I've run out of stuff to put on this list
1) CAKE!

I don't think you're taking my suggestion as seriously as it merits.

also, I'm INCREDIBLY ANGRY that my favourite music in the game (the music after bubble bobble spits but before you enter his mouth) plays for all of a few seconds before you pass it.

@Kòppís ^^,: Yeah, it is. There's currently 4 tracks from that game, in the sky level, the castle and a secret area I'm currently working on right now. That soundtrack's so good I can't not use it ;D

@Zaraki: A whole load of bug fixes... and a few more levels for you to play through, as well as one secret room. And as Kòppís ^^, said, changable controls.

Beta v3 has even more of this:
-5 Secret paths (including an extra 2 bosses)
-One of the 'endings' to the game, including the final fight with Sticky Keys
-bug fixes:
--No more bugs with vertical-moving platforms (eg you don't fall through them anymore.. issue with double jumping without single jumping off of them has been fixed)
--uhh lots more I just can't remember =P

EDOT:
Hi. I enjoyed making (and playtesting) the chase scene later on in the game so much I made another one, only this time something's chasing you instead of vice-versa. It's a secret area, so you'll have to look around to find it, however here's a screenshot (haven't posted a screen in a while):

I need someone to voice Alex the Kidd.

I need him to say the following things:

"Boy I sure am hungry.. but I have no money and have to guard this potion"
"What's that? You have some cash? Thanks! ..but I still have to guard this potion."
"Ooooh cake.. yummy. *OMNOMNOM sound effect* I'll tell you what.. you can have this potion. Now I can afford me a GEP gun"

Gap with an E.
That's a reference to Deus Ex.. in case anyone didn't get it. Except instead of giving Alex the Kidd cake and money.. you just capped a Zyme dealer.

Can you do it so that when you download a new version you don't need to clear the game again from the beginning?
What do you mean by secret paths? like you can go to some strange places from portal part or something?
Uhh I love this game..
Oh and I would also like that you would make tentacool the way it was. When I saw Koppis beat Gary, its Supersonic missed every time expect 1. :( make it so it hits you every time :)
Lots of questions!
Hope you answer soon!

YES!
I'm playing on Hard now, and I'm at bub, and I've already beaten middle and left path!
Going to beat it today!

Post by: Sarah on November 14, 2008, 04:53:27 pm
I beat it so far. It's pretty good. However:

The keylift screen transistion should not kill you. Either have it openly state that you need to jump or make it safe to drop down.

The Bubble Bobble boss wasn't to my liking. I'm sorry, I just don't like the idea of it. Plus when I first fought, I had assumed he was glitched.

I absolutely despise the difficulty select screen. It's a cool idea in theory, but it just doesn't work. :(

Please, just put spikes or solid walls at parts you don't want us to go to. I don't want to have to die randomly because I think I'm going the right way when it's just a killer dead-end.

I think its harder than IWBTG. the middle path is the hardest path in my opinon, it took me hours to get past the Pac-Man maze. my favorite path was the upper path.

No, just let it clip you. It'll teleport you back to the beginning.

Sorry, I thought I was being clear. Let me rephrase it.

Sometimes, there is a gap in a wall that it looks like you can go through (like the gap the giant swinging wrecking ball makes when it first comes in) but it kills you instantly with nothing showing that it can indeed kill.

And Koppis you are wrong.

The game is really really good as it is now. Do not change it (much).

I think I'll finally download the beta v2 now ;D

I has 2 suggestions for V. hard.
There could be a block in these places, to make v. hard a bit moe harder, I found these places a bit too easy for v.hard.

I'm stuck here, any advice? I put red squares to the places that are breaking blocks.. and the one on the right is an invincible one?
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta v2 released!]
Post by: Sarah on November 15, 2008, 02:49:35 am
No, I'm sorry it sounded like that. It's a very good game and blows mine right out of the water. I was just giving some pointers to help out.

Anyway, that screen is a pain, but this is what you do:

: show
Go right, under that spike. Watch for two holes in the floor. Right under the spike is a solid platform. Carefully jump two squares to the right, dodging that middle one, which is fake. Now this is the tricky part. Jump over the next spike to the right, causing it to launch up. Without touching the ground, which is fake, dodge the spike and land on the platform it launched from. Once there, you can drop safely under the next rightmost block. Careful - you will die if you're even one square too far to the left. All the blocks from here to the right wall are real.

Jump up on the rightmost block and jump up one row and over two columns. Skip that first block with the two spikes coming off it because that's a fake. A real block will appear just to the right of the block you intend to land on. Jump up one row and to the rightmost block. The middle one there is fake. Jump up and over to the spike, but get away as it launches up. Head back to the platform you were originally standing on and try to squeeze your way into that area with the spike pointing up at the single brick, landing in between those two blocks. Don't worry, those are hidden platforms!

Jump through that next block, being careful not to touch the spikes and land on the platform one up and left. Jump left one brick, then up and right. Carefully navigate your way through the rest of the bricks.


Hope that helped. :)

by the way, I just experienced a bug. I was fighting tentacool, and he used his supersonic-type attack and reversed my keys, and as a result I died. When I pressed R, my keys were still reversed. (I was playing this on beta v1, so it might have been fixed, but if not, please look into it.)

dadadaa...

Edit: For some reason, after beating VH I started again on Medium and beat it, but this time I saved the save files, I have a "save1(V.Hard)" and a "save2(Medium)". And I'll do a hard also.
it's great that I can use the save saves with newer versions ;D
I think you've already finished bosses and all that, but is there/could there be a chrono trigger/FF level or levels? I can't believe there aren't any in any games. they're best games ever made.
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta v2 released!]
Post by: tijit on November 15, 2008, 05:11:18 am
@Purple_Shrimp: Yes that bug is fixed in v2.

I'll look up chrono trigger, I've never played it.. and there is a reference to FF at the moment.. the music in the pacman section is the original final fantasy battle music.

You try to make my favourite game bad
Uhh.. please tell me that's  joke, right?

@Sarah: When you walk off the screen and die.. hmm. I guess I can put something there to stop the player doing that... but I don't know. It'll look just weird if a huge demolishing ball crushes a chunk of the level away, only to have it replaced with spikes a moment later. I thought it would just be common sense not to jump out of the level, and even if you do, you'll just die, and then you're obviously not going to try it again :P

Post by: Zaraki on November 15, 2008, 08:08:46 am
That's cool sarah :)

Hey where is the secret item? I just beat Hard again, now I have medium, hard and V.hard at the demo save wall.

Uhh, could you fix.. 3 glitches, I think you know them, but have forgotten to fix them...

1. the room before the doom boss. If you jump to the screen before it, you are stuck in the air and can do nothing.

2.from the first screen, if you jump to the right path, you will be stuck inside a wall there and again, can do nothing.

3. And then ofc making the moving platforms so that you can Not fall through them. I know it's really hard, but please.



Edit!!!

Omg first Impossible run and I already got to the doom boss!!!

yes! I got the green key, then died in the room after that. Pretty good huh for the 1st run? ;D



edit3:
On Impossible, right path, I got to the underwater world's 1st room. anyone gotten that far on right path?

Piece of advice: never play on impossible without recording. You might kick yourself later if you beat someone's best run and have no proof ;)

Bugs 1 & 3 are already fixed.. but I didn't know about bug 2. Thanks for telling me ;)

Yeah, you missed the final boss. I actually did the same thing myself. >_>

If you open your save file with Notepad and change the third and fourth lines to "player.x=40" and "player.y=500.00", you should be able to make the kid spawn back to the beginning of that area, so you can try fighting the final boss without starting over.

It should be in the same folder as the game, and it should be called "save0".

DimJim, I can't exactly remember the area you're talking about. Maybe you can take a screenshot so I might be able to refresh my memory? Well, unless someone else helps you first...

Alright, so I finished it so far.

: show
I liked it. It was really good. That delicious fruit room really got on my nerves but luckily you made the psyche bar rideable. I really enjoyed the God of Famine boss from Kid Icarus, but I don't think touching the ceiling should kill you. As for the StickyKeys boss, it was unexpected, funny, and fun. The ending was pretty unexpected though. So that's the ending for Medium mode players? I can't wait for you to finish this game. :)


Edit: I was mildly annoyed that you put in a
: show
PacMan area.
I was going to do that in my game. :P Now I have to come up with something else or be called unoriginal. :P
Title: Re: I wanna be the fangame! [beta, the third]
Post by: tijit on November 16, 2008, 03:56:55 am
Glad you got that save working ;)
Here's part one and two of the complete walkthrough:
http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=HFXBZKVZtLs (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=HFXBZKVZtLs)
http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=a3_UjdvabQY (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=a3_UjdvabQY)
edit:http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=sfPDrXaDJqA (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=sfPDrXaDJqA) - this is the 3rd part, but it may take a little while to process

The 3rd part is uploading now. After that I'll add a vid showing you how to find all the secret items.

@DeLi: There are 4 secret items at the moment which you can access. 2 potions, 2 others. The two other items are:
: show
Cake: You get this if you beat glados. Get to this by staying on the shifting blocks after portal, and jump back through the blue portal when it falls back down instead of going through the orange portal.

: show
Cash: Get this by sticking around at the end of pacman, and going through the left bit.

And one more thing:
: show
You can actually get to that. I put demo walls there because he's supposed to have dialogue and my voice actors didn't gimme the files on time. However, there are a few surprises in that area. I think if you jump up onto the right, you can jump over that demo wall (but don't accidentally walk into the screen on the right.. well actually do, it's a variation of the GAME OVER screen in iwbtg, but anyway) and press the enter key (a temp debug thing), and Alex Kidd will appear to be eating a cake or something. He'll be smaller, and you'll be able to get to the item on the other side. However, check out that area well, like I said there are some hidden surprises.

Hmm.. I'd wonder if Kayin would give this his seal of approval. But by the pinned topic above, he isn't that into fangames. Perhaps I could make him the final boss of the alternate path... ;D

@DimJim: in that bit you just have to be very fast ;) The solution is in part two of the walkthrough link I posted above, if you still haven't got it.

@Sarah: I'm sure I'm not the first person that's put pacman into a fangame :P
Anyway, I think I need to redo bits of that pacman bit, there's too much waiting involved, I was going to get the communities' view on how to change it anyway, do you have any ideas?

A) How the hell are we supposed to pronounce your name?

B) I am interested in a soundtrack

C) Would you do me the awesome favor of sending me some of the IWBTG sounds that you have?  I would like to use the jump & double jump, game over, and shoot.  And death blood splatter.

D) Where do you get your sounds/music?

E) Much appreciated.

F) Great fan game.

G) I am in my underwear

H) No, but seriously, B and C are serious. *edit* And D is also serious.

*edit again*
My bro showed me how to record the output from your sound in Windows with Audacity, so I turned the music off in IWBTG and ripped it myself.  I'd still like to know if you have any good sources for wav's though.

WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU DO IN THE VERY FIRST NEW SCREEN OF THIS ONE!??!?!?!?!?

The one with the absolutely insane fucking cherry grid. Twice I was able to make it to the other side and both times I get killed by an invisible wall that I assumed was the next screen. I am not spending one more second jumping through those god damned cherries until I know its worth it to get to the other side somehow.

Thanks. But seriously man, not a fan of just dying if you walk off a screen the wrong way. If you don't want us to go somewhere, make it a wall. Though in this case, I suppose that would take a lot away from the misdirection of the screen.

Edit: Got past it. Grim Reaper wasn't that hard for me. I beat him on my 3rd try. Currently at Sticky Keys.

I'm posting a vid of all the secret items when I get home.
Also, I've only created 3 trials so far, so that's as far as you can go :P

@Levirules: Okay yeah I'll upload the soundtrack as well when I get home. Pretty much all of my music and sound effects I rip using Audacity. Usually from the original games, but sometimes from music tracks posted up on youtube (for example the ape escape soundtrack) or just download it (cave story soundtrack)


So, now that I've made all the walkthroughs, and I only have one examination left, I can start making some new trials and finish off the alternate ending.

Voice Actors! I need the voice of Alex Kidd soon, and I'll start writing dialogue for the next section soon.

I almost did. Before I found that you could ride the psyche bar, I cleared four out of five. Somehow.

Anyway, I finished all the new content, collected all the items, and completed three of the trials. It's all good, but why does the end of trial 3 kill me? Not done yet?

The StickyKeys boss made me laugh. Hard and a lot. :P It wasn't too hard once you know what you were doing, but it came up after it split into 4 and killed me and I screamed and then laughed. You're a clever boss designer. :)

I believe I finished all the new stuff. Got all the new items, the 2 potions, cake and cash. The glados fight was tricky, but not bad once you figure out how to deal with the heat seeking things.

The stuff left of the pacman screen was intense. Whats this about 3 trials? Did I miss something?

BTW: Yeah.......jumping through those cherries is hard. I was starting to curse your name for making me do that. Got through all 5 jumps twice. Once to see what happened when I left the screen, and again to make sure it wasn't some crazy glitch.

 In the first room on the left path in the desert area, launch the spike in the lower left corner. Go down where the spike was and you'll see Alex standing there, blocked by a DEMO wall. You can skip it by jumping up onto the ground, but careful not to leave the middle right side of the screen or you'll be lost forever.

Press ENTER to make Alex start eating cake (debug hotkey). When he's eating, press Shift to make him jump, but he only will if you're touching the ground, so make a bunch of tiny jumps. Once he's high up, stop jumping. He'll break open a hole in the floor leading to a pit of trials. Also, don't forget the potion behind him.

^There's all the music, some edited, some unedited, with a bunch of sound effects from the game as well, including jump, djump, shoot, death, death+gameover(in mp3), cherryfall etc
Large file size coz they're all mp3, the only midi is the credits music, the fairy fountain song :P

And here's the secrets video:
http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=iUPjcjcLsAI (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=iUPjcjcLsAI)

Call me tijit for short. The whole nickname is tijit da mijit, as in like tijit the midget, 'cept spelt differently.
I'm not really that much of a short ass as I was in year 8 when that nickname was given to me, but it stuck as an internet alias.


Well.. I guess I need to fix up that falling cherries room. I want to keep it how it is now, only so it's not possible to dodge them if you don't jump down to that platform... however getting that exactly right has proven to be trickier than expected. I'll work on it.. or just outright change it, if it proves to be too difficult :P

Also, trials number 2 and 3 are too easy, I'll set about making them more difficult. The main problem about the second one is the zelda flying block things are picked pseudo-randomly.. and that sucks.

Greets all, I thought it was about time I posted here (Well, actually Tijit did, so he made me, but whatever).
For all of those who are good enough (See; insaneley good) to reach the ending credits, I'm the Matt you'll see there for helping in level design. I designed most of the portal levels, and have been doing some close playtesting and level design advice with Tijit while making the game.

It's great to se everyone liking the game. Tijit's rediculously good at the game itself, so I'm here trying to be the voice of reason for us others that can't make the jump down to mother brain first time, every time.

I'm chalking up a few ideas for a series of mushroom kingdom levels now, so watch out for those in a future release.

Again, it's great to see all the posative response, Tijit's game is (in my opinion) a great recreation of the original, with some seriously fantastic enemies and unique encounters (Why does no one mention the chest? I thought it was great!).

Are there any other secret areas?

Finished the trials. The first one was indeed very hard. Took me about 10 minutes to figure that one out. The first time I finished it I had "2 platforms to go"............I think you know why............damn it. lol.

Beat Trial 2 on my first try. That one may need a difficulty boost. Trial 3 was pretty nasty too, but no worse than a regular hard screen.

I must say, I LOOOOOVE all the extra stuff you are putting into this game? Where do you plan to tie all this into the story? Is the game over after Sticky Keys with just a TON of "bonus" stuff to do? Or is this all going to tie back into a big ending that can only be accessed if you did everything?

Well, It wasn't bad, but really short...
You should make a part where you should be on v.hard to get a even longer game.

Or on hard you could say to the father: "but I'm, on hard/v.hard!"

Tijit, when's the next version going to come? :)
Well, considering during my exam-revision time I spent around 5-6 hours a day working on it, I don't think I could go any faster. I'm having a quick break for a few days, then I'm getting back stuck into it again.

As for secrets.. yeah I'll probably chuck in a couple more, but I want to get the actual game done first. Me and Matt are gonna sit down and draw out a couple of levels.. like he said, there's going to be a mushroom kingdom section.

I came to a bit of a setback last time I worked on it.. I had objects that bounce vertically or horizontally (like.. those spiky things from zelda) but unfortunately, they won't stay coordinated, the timing becomes slightly different every time each one bounces, and that unbalances it all a LOT.. so I was wondering if anyone has collisions code such that it all stays coordinated.. I don't want to have to spend hours trying to work it out.

Mushroom Kingdom level, whoooop!

I always thought that a mario setting would make for some good IWBTG screens. Is there going to be a mario boss? Maybe you have to take down Mario and Luigi while they're shooting fireballs at you =p.

Or a guitar hero room where you'd have to dodge the notes, then at the end you must escape because the last note is a 5 note chord.

Also 5-6 hours a day?  I just spent 4+ hours on the screen where you battle Kirk Hammett in my game... And I thoguth that was a pertty decent marathon.  You win good sir.

That's a good idea, but how about making each note a platform that rises up and if you reach the top you'll die, and the song is Through the fire and flames...<.<

Back to the guitar hero, if you die, after all of the notes go through to the bottom, it could play Might is Right but Tight(aka, the game over music) with the notes and the falling and the... and... the... t..h..e..

I'm getting rid of sticky key's shitty laser attack anyway.
The doom-boss used to have more health.. but I got rid of some of it. I might give him a couple extra hit points again though.

All this guitar hero talk gave me an idea.. the player has to move based on sequence patterns at the top of the screen. If he strays from this, he's dead.

Tij, I would like to collaborate with you on the Guitar Hero part.  I think it's an awesome idea, and I really don't want our music game parodies to be too similar.  Mine is already finished, so what we could do is bounce ideas off one another to make sure they won't be too similar.  Sending you the screen I have and letting you play through it is also a possibility, but I would think that might make it harder to create something different.  Either way, my AIM is ScotiaIsGay and my email is levisemail1337@gmail.com, which I check frequently.

edit.  To expand on that idea that you posted a couple posts up, maybe there are buttons at the bottom of the screen, when you press the buttons, it destroys the note, if not, the note could crush you.  Or, the un-destroyed note could fire a delicious fruit at you when it reaches the bottom.

Well me and Tijit got together today and I worked out 5 or 6 Mushroom Kingdom screens while he churned them out in glorious IWBTG-O-Vision. Rest assured that they are hard, but awesome. If you're a fan of Super Mario you should find plenty of things to keep you happy. Yes, I did make him include the World 1-1 music (As much as he didn't want to).

As for a boss, I have something really great in mind for that, but we'll have to see if there's room for one. I think there should be. be prepared for something beyond epic.

The next update is on it's way, don't worry.. there will be bunch more frames, including the mushroom kingdom levels and a new boss. Also, the alpha build of a 'Bonus' room, which is unlocked after beating Sticky Keys. From the bonus room, you can teleport to different parts of the game, boss rush can be accessed through this room as well (nb boss rush won't be available yet, not until I've finished making the entire game)


On an unrelated note, I am now the guy =D
I got the final secret item the other day as well, so now I can say I've beaten the game I'm bastardizing.

I played through the game the other night.  It's quite good.  I'd say it's at least 93% as good as the original.

I noticed one bug, and I don't think anyone else has pointed this out-- when I beat the Doom boss, I stood on the right side of the screen as he was dying.  You know the blocks that fall down and create the exit pathway?  Well, one of them basically fell on top of me.  It didn't kill me, but it made me stuck in place with a block on top of my head.  I couldn't move or jump or anything.  So I just had to respawn and beat the boss over again.  Which I was glad to do, because it was a cool boss.  But yeah, you might want to fix that so the blocks don't interact with the players or something.

Great game, all in all, though.

I was working with Tijit on the Mushroom Kingdom levels the other day and they're looking pretty good. Rest assured, they are very hard, but I think they're great. The funny thing about them is their odd tendancy to have people get extremley close to finishing the frame on their first try, then spend the next 20 attempts trying to het half as close. It's odd, and it's happened with a bunch of them so far, but whatever.

As for the boss, I've thrown down what I'd like to see on the table and we have some sprites going on, but it's really up to Tijit now to see how he can take some of the ideas I've put down in theory and turn them into an awesome working boss.
I'm not worried -  He's pretty good at that.

Have faith guys; Tijit is working very hard on the game, and it's coming along great.

Well, I thought I'd just let people know:

This is now the most popular game I've ever created. The beta v3 has received (at current count) 2,673[/i] downloads.. which is staggering, considering next in line is anticitizen 0.7, with only 299 downloads. I couldn't believe it when I saw that number.. man I'm still getting over the shock :p

Anyway, now I'm in the habit of making games again I'll probably pick this project up again at some stage. To round it off, and give it more polish.

In the meantime, have a look at the 3-or-so-day game I've been working on: by clicking here (http://robosquid.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=667) (IT'SIN_3D_ZOMIGOSH111)
I'll post a proper topic for that up on these forums when I release the next demonstration.
Like it says in that link, I haven't done any creative game design or anything like that in the past 3 months or so, I am a lazy bastard I know.

I've been programming games for 5 years, trust me I've made it as efficient as possible. The most common problems for lag in this game is frames with too many tiles (gfx card issue I believe), and the music seems to dominate crappy processors.

Uhh.. to be honest, I really wouldn't know how to fix that.. what are your pc's specs?

The game is very fun, but I reccomend not having the music restart every time you die as it does in IWTBTG. In a gmae where you are supposed to continually die, listening to kust the beginning of a song really gets annoying. Just a suggestion!
One of the 'points' to this is to be frustrating, let alone annoying. It's something you'll just have to put up with, or switch off your speakers.

I've already downloaded four fangames so far, however all of them say that my computer "failed to initialize drawings because the graphics card has low memory." How do you solve this problem, and, secondly, how do you access the section of your computer with its details on graphic cards?

Just wait till you get to the mario level, world 1-1 music. There are bits in that level in which you hear the first 6 notes (you know what they are) over and over again, coz this shit is more insane than the ghosts && goblins level. Matt will confirm this.


STUFF:
We (Matt && I) were going for a bowser or peach boss at the end of this Mario section*. I cannot get anything to work right.. and I really gotta tie this game off. I probably won't be designing any more bosses for this reason. The game was never meant to be anywhere near as long as iwbtg. There was going to be 4 bosses, 3+sticky keys, and it'll stay that way. (grim reaper doesn't really count, that's more of a mini boss)
Sticky Keys will be made more difficult and moved to the very end. The boss will not clip bullets, I'll change it so the cancel button in the middle does. I'm getting rid of that turd rainbow laser attack too.
I'm cutting out a few frames (e.g. the first frame in the desert area never worked, and "The only cherry.." frame will be removed coz it sucks). The very beginning needs to be different, but I'm not sure what to do instead.. a lot of the world will need re-structuring. The pacman bit sucks btw, people need to stop telling me it's clever.
I'm putting in a menu instead of the interactive difficulty select, and multiple save states. Possibly boss rush (but that may not work if there's only 4 bosses, I'll probably include grim reaper and GLaDOS).
Matt is gonna design a cutscene of some kind for the beginning, too. We might change the kid slightly, I want him to have a blue cape.



*I also wanted a mecha-spagettio boss but that got scratched.

Princess Peach Boss memorial speech:

Peach was going to be the only boss that I'd designed a majority of, and to be honest, I thought it was going to be awesome. The original plan was the following:

The player would pop out in the mario world at some late stage in the game and finish a series of screens there were from the original mario game. At the end of this section, the player enters the world 1 Bowser boss room, which is an exact copy, but with a massivley enlarged bowser. He proceeds to roar and look intimidating while the player Gears up for the craziest fight against a fire breating turtle ever...
And Just then bowser's impales on a pink umbrella from behind, and as his body drops to the ground (And into the background during the fight), Peach Emerges, Roars (Godzilla's Scream from the original film), her eyes catch on fire and start shooting lazers, throwing tuirnips, and generally messing your shit up.

It was going to be crazy. I'm a little dissapointed that it's not going to make it into the game, but I know it's great enough that the game doesnt even need it.

A pimpin' website is also in the works for symltaneous release with the game, so it has it's own home. More to come!

P.s: Cutscene in planning will also be awesome.

Man, I don't even remember, but I found the disc for it lying around, and thought to myself "why the SHIT did I not think of this before" and then proceeded to start playing through the game, ripping stuff as I went.

Some other kewl games around that time (or maybe a little earlier) would be Gubble and Zoombinis, but both would be a little hard to implement I guess. The music from Gubble would be awesome, but I can only find music for Gubble 2 on youtube :/

Well guys, plenty of work has been getting done on the fangame. I just finished playing through the latest build tonight and It's looking great. There's a bunch of stuff to to still, but We're finished designing pretty much all of the game, and now we're going through it polishing it all up, tweaking some sections etc. The way jumping works was changed around a bit, which I think is an improvement, so Tij tested every frame of the game again to make sure it was all possible.

People that have been following the game for a while will still be way ahead of the game when the final version comes out, but expect to see plenty of new and changed areas.

All in all, development's going well, stuff's getting done, and the game is starting to play and look polished and smooth. We're getting there!

That fight's been made much cooler now. A few of the timing elements have changed, we're added new (Awesome) music, and have updated the graphics scheme of that entire area. It's much more fun, and about the same dicfficulty, though on more than one occasion I've beaten him with only a single square tile left to stand on.

You could probably fix it yourself by opening the save with Notepad and changing the x and y coordinates. Make a copy of the save before doing so if you're worried about messing it up.

Just a quick note that we know about this issue and we've fixed it up in the current version (Which is looking AWESOME, by the way.)
In fact, a whole lot of that area has been changed, whith a bunch of cool stuff added.

Right now, most of what we're working on is polising up the game. There are a few areas that still need a few frames (There's going to be a new starting section, a huge addition to the final tower part, a bunch of new screens on each path and some other bits an peices. A lot of that is done, but we want to make sure that everything's great before we release it. Other than that, we're playing through the game from start to finish over and over again tweaking levels, fixing bugs and generally making it more polished and clean.

Found a useful glitch:

Does - The kid autofires.

How - Open up "controls.txt" on the game folder. Go to "global.button4" and add a negation before its value.

global.button4=88

transforms into:

global.button4=!88

It doesn't matter which number it is btw. I got a 1 in my config.

Quick suggestion:

Since you're making new content in all three paths, make the old saves invalid with the final release so we're forced to see everything in all its glory. It'd be pretty lame if most of us have a beta save at or near the final boss, skipping most of the new things you worked so hard to put in. Yes, that would mean that we all have to go through it all over again, but for most of us, it shouldn't be too difficult doing everything again and I'm sure the new areas will present fresh challenges to keep us going.

Yep, As of final release, all earlier save files will be invalid. We're going to encrypt save files too, so it wont be possible to hack your way through the game.

Yeah you will. Most of the current ones have been removed or moved to a different location. 'Cept for glados, but that boss has been revamped so it's worth going back and doing again.

There will be *possibly* 16 secret items in total, collecting them all will unlock some awesome content, eg deleted and bonus scenes and maybe a new *EXTREMELY* difficult boss for all those insane people out there.

I just want to say, everyone who is part of making this game is a bastard and I hate them. Kayin is a saint compared to you.

Still, I love this game anyway. The boss fights are really fun, and finding out the solutions to stuff in the game is just as awesome as in IWBTG. I beat the Doom thing, Glados and Bubble Bobble guy (got the blue potion and cake), but I'm giving up for now because I accidentally went off to the right to the imitation IWBTG starting room and saved, and I really REALLY don't want to do all of that over again. Plus if all the saves are going to be invalidated in a month, I might as well just be patient.

Oh, and I found this room after Bubble Bobble with Link fishing, is this some unfinished thing that I bet you guys already talked about earlier?

That's a secret area. In the beta it was unfinished, but we left it in ther because we thught it might be cool to tease people with some ideas of where the secret areas would be in the future. Also, we were lazy.

Anyway, yeah, there's now a puzzle there and a secret item!

As for current progress: We are currently working on the LAST FRAME (:O) of the game! We'll probobally end up remaking a lot of stuff, so there is still heaps of work to do, but it's a massive milestone.

Actually, am I the only one who thought the first trial was sorta easy once you found out you had to hit all the platforms, and you remembered all of them? Once you know how to do it, pretty simple, not too much trial and error compared to some other challenges. The second was annoying but also easy, and the third was a bit of a whore and would be fine without that last part ARGH I'm still mad about that you guys.

I think you should somehow transplant the upper part of that cavey ruins level and make those The Trials. Those made my head hurt.

The second trial is harder than it was, but still not as hard as the first one. The third is much harder too. Just you wait till you get to the fifth one, which makes the first one look like happy rainbow icecream.

@Crok: Fixed save file attached. It should be fixed anyway.. if it's not let me know (different builds lol)

I'm really glad the game has people like you playing it, Especialy now. I keep getting worried that we're putting all this work into creating awesome secret areas (Some of which are arguably the best screens in the game), which almost no one will ever see. Knowing that at least you guys are checking the unfinished versions out already is very reassuring.

The trials are now pretty much done, and will rock your socks quite throughly. The fifth trial is something very special.

As for the difficulty, it's all been played with a bit, so it should be a bit better there.

Here's a special screenshot of a recent level, just because we love you:

Oh boy that looks like fun.

BTW I got to the infamous 'Sticky Keys' boss, am I close to being done?

edit: I actually decided to read the thread now, and please tell me you reconsidered removing the 'Only Cherry In The Game' room, I thought that was hilarious. Sure, I almost ended up strangling my cat, but I'm still a fan.

Eh, it's your guys's game though so whatevv :kid:

edit2: Oh, I guess I beat it? That's anticlimatic. I'm even on hard, with all the secrets, so I guess that's what goes down until May 10thish.

Can't wait! :fruit:

Haha, Hey, be nice to my room! The blue flower room is the first screen that I designed from scratch myself, rather than just working with tij like I have for most others. Even though I know it's not as good as some other levels, it remains one of my favourites in the game, if only for sentimental value.

The thing I like most about it is that some people find it really really easy, and you realize that it's the people who really think about what's going on and pretty much ignore the fireballs that have the least trouble with the room. It's easier than it looks!

As for the replies, Thanks! If you think that room's cool, you're going to snap seeing the screen after it. And speaking of which, and your insatiable lust for screenshots, I'll be putting up a new post on out ModDB site about the next room pretty soon too, which you guys will probobally want to check out.

http://www.moddb.com/games/i-wanna-be-the-fangame

The left path is a bit harder now too, with the addition of 2 new screens that, to be honest, are pretty out of place in their difficulty. I think we need to tone them down a bit. If you can beat it on impossible though, ++respect.

Re: Snoot; We're still going to remove that room. I liked the joke too, but it's just way too hard. Also, there are cherries in the new first room of the right path now, so it kinda doesnt work.

We're working on it!

I think soon I'll go back to Beta V3 of the game and take screenshots of a bunch of stuff, then show the updated versions, so you can see a bit of what the game feels like now ahead of time.

We've officially completed the final frame of the game, and now we're just re-working all the paths to run a bit more smoothly etc! This game is actually getting finished!

Hmm, also need a spiffy credits sequence and a menu system for multiple saves huh. Why is it now I have a two-week break.. I'm getting LESS done on it. Hurr.

I just downloaded your game and I was wondering if there is a way to set up the controls to use a game pad.  I looked around the thread and the moddb page a little and couldn't find anything.

I tried in the controls.exe to set up my Xbox 360 controller but it wouldn't recognize it.
If that isn't a feature, it would be a good one for the final release.

EDIT:
It seems that the controller thing isn't my biggest problem.  Every time I I go to start the game it crashes.  I'm able to pick my difficulty but when the first frame loads up I hear a glitchy squelch sound then the send error report window pops up.  Although I'm able to keep playing until I die then it locks up and I have to close it.  I tried re-downloading it and closing everything out but no luck.

Yep, of course!
If we have time, I'd like to have a whole barrage of statistics about how you did come up after the credits at the end of the game. I mean, completley ambiguous stuff like, "Most shots fired while in the air" or something.

Also, perhaps for future patches etc, We want to put a bunch of mini-games in too, for when you need jut a little self-hate action on your lunch break.

Since my problem seems to have been forgotten seeing as it is the last post on the 30th page...

This game keeps crashing on me when it loads up the first frame.  I am able to choose a difficulty but when I do it makes a glitchy squelch sound and it crashes.  It gives me the "This program has ran into trouble and needs to shut down" window.  Also I am able to play until I die then it fully crashes and I have to shut it down.

Pic if it helps.

I.. actually have no idea what's causing that crash. It's probably a hardware problem, or something to do with Game Maker. What operating system are you running it on and what's your computer specs? Can you run iwbtg fine?

I'm using Windows XP SP3.  2.4 GHZ Pentium 4 I have an ATI graphics card 256MB (dont know the specs on it, someone gave it to me)  It is very similar to the Nvidia Gforce FX 5200.  I also have a Windows Blind up if that matters.  I can run IWBTG without it crashing, it just lags a lot on the 2nd phase of The Guy.

I hope you can figure it out and it's a simple fix on my end, changing a setting, I really don't have the money to upgrade and I really want to play the game.

I am having problems playing this game. As soon as I select a difficulty, the game freezes on the first screen and stops responding. It creates a save file called "save0" and another file called "temp". Is anyone else having this problem or can anyone suggest a remedy?

EDIT: Ok, I just downloaded the game on the family laptop, and it works fine there.
: show
I was able to defeat the Cacodemon, and the boss in the water area, and I made it to the Secret Item chase after the "No Bows" timed area after the PACMAN room on the middle path (I'm standing next to the save point in the area that is entirely black except for the finish line). I edited the save file I have at the moment to match the one I'm working on on the laptop. Now I can move around as I want to in the entirely black screen, but it still freezes when I drop down to the chase scene.
Hopefully this information might aid in finding a solution to my problem.

What kind of media player are you talking about, like Windows Media Player, I have that.  It could be if it's trying to access Quicktime it won't get anything because Quicktime corrupted or something on my PC and I can't use it.  Would it work with WMP?

Yeah, I have VLC, WMP, DivX, and Quicktime installed. Can you tell me the filetype of the media files it plays, if they have one? I've fiddled around with my filetype associations in the past, so could one of the players be trying to play a track it can't play, or could they be interfering with each other or something?

EDIT: I restored association of .wav and .mp3 files to Windows Media Player, and now it works fine. Thanks tijit for pinpointing the music as the problem. :D

I just tried that and it didn't solve my problem.  All my audio files are set to Windows Media Player and it still crashes.  I don't have any music if that helps just sound effects(like the object falling/launching sound and I get the bwang of the disappearing reappearing blocks), so I'm guessing it may still have something to do with that.

No.  I have all music extensions already associated with Windows Media Player as I said in my previous post.  And it seems that the creator doesn't know what the problem is so it seems as I'll never be able to play this wonderful game until I can get a new computer, which is a ways away still. :'(

Seriosuly, important or not it's getting rediculous. I havent had a night free to sit down and slam out some work on this for about 3 weeks. I can get a bit done during the day at uni, but my rediculous schedule is just out of control now. Tij has it a little easier, but he's got much more work on the game to do, and plans to actually pass university.

Dont worry guys, It'll get it's release eventually, and it'll be worth it. We just need a bit more time to make sure that when we do get it out there, we do it right.

It was a pretty good fan game, it was a lot of fun and was pretty hard aswell :P
BUT, i had 2 issues with it:

1. The levels did not have the same charm like the original IWBTG.
2. The use of traps was very repetitive in most levels, the flying spike trap was done to death.

But the game was very original, the bosses were fun and overall it was a pretty good game :)

8/10

If you ask me, all the levels so far are absolutely perfect. Traps were maybe just a bit repetitive, but not so much that you could beat an area on your first or second attempt. Nothing's bad.

Thanks man, we really appreciate comments like this. Still, I think you're wrong, and a lot of levels needed fixing up, so fix them up we have! Should have a progress update up soon.

Haha, Awesome.
We love both of you. A lot.
Tij loves probobally more than you'd feel comfortable with. That's a lot of love right there.

Anyway, We're working on it! Today the uni shut down the lab we were using to make and test the game in, so that's going to set us back a bit, but we should be able to keep it on track. We went over the menu designs and a bit of stuff regarding the ending and it's all looking good. There's a small, pretty inconsequential update on ModDb.com that I wrote, so keep that bookmarked, should be more up soon.

Ok, so, Apparently You're all like "WTF guys, I thought this was meant to be done months ago?"

And I'm going to go right ahead and link you to my much longer answer to that HERE:

http://www.moddb.com/games/i-wanna-be-the-fangame

So.. Yeah.
I could write pages and pages about what We've been up to that's getting in the way of this, but I'll just leave it at "Life Happens". It's been a really terrible run in terms of progress for this game. BUT REST ASSURED! It's getting done!

My last exam for the semester is tomorrow, and after that I'm going to get this train running again. Within the next 2 weeks I want to have the game pretty much 100% done (Final testing etc after that, then release), major mod blog updates and a completed website running for the game.

So yeah, It's on it's way! We know you guys have been waiting, and we love you for it. Tij actually love you a bit TOO much. It's starting to scare me.

Really.


Keep the faith, We're still alive!

Ok, Well you know after you destroy the first boss, that cacodemon, you walk into the next room,and its a temple looking place with bricks, correct? and a few screens after is a blank room, there are 2 paths, one that goes down, which takes you to the beginning of the game, and there you go to the right to get telported somewhere else. And theres a left path, if you go to the left, It takes you to the screen you were recently on,but you are on the bottom half of the screen, and there are spikes like this:


                                  ---------
                                            x
                                            x
                                            x
                                            x
                                            x xxxxxx  -------------

The x's are spikes, and the - is the ground, but there are too many spikes so I cant jump the spikes, I found my way into the tower after you kill the sea monster thing. But is there a way to jump the spikes? Like a hidden block of something?

Post by: Zero_Destroyer on July 07, 2009, 08:57:46 pm
Right, so I started the game a few days ago. Here are my thoughts, from a sucky player who is The Guy:

: show
I quit on the side scrolling part with sticky keys (My reflexes can't handle it, too much. I was about to quit on that godawful 1st room of the castle.). I love it. I'll be playing the final version. I'll give my opinions on each part.

I liked the place where you must platform to get to a new game. This further discourages me from playing anything above medium, lol.

The start of the game is nice. The tree stump thing made me lol.

The Trails thing is a big "fuck you", IMO. I tried it like an hour ago, I quit. The moving platforms look easy, but in reality they are awful. I can't get all of them, I had 9 to go and was killed by sand.

The plants shooting fire that homes in on you is frustrating for a bit. The chest shooting coins was easy. The fire destroying platforms part made me think I just had to run fast until I accidentally pressed the left key at the start of the room. Cacodemon pissed me off.

I hate the area after Cacodemon. All of it: Both upper and lower paths.

The wrecking ball made me go "WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!?!", I didn't expect it. The area after that was amusing, I like how the plane comes out followed by a bombing. The portal area was genius, though I wish you would have added a save point after the turrets or whatever they're called. Block jumping was fun, Underwater wasn't that fun. Bub looked freaking impossible after everything was shooting at you, but I beat him. The rest of the underwater area was fine. I didn't care for the area where there are two kids, and the room where the 4 plants are shooting at you really ticked me off. The Pac-Man area was fun, the pokemon area was win, the battle was EPIC win, but,then came the lower half of the underground area. I didn't like that.  The part with the X's I hate so much i wished for it to be removed are improved.  Also, have you taken out the "No Bow" areas? That ticked me off on the race segment that i couldn't go through. Anyway, the 1st room of the palace was hard, and II quit on the scrolling room.

Post by: Matt on July 08, 2009, 12:13:01 pm
question: this game rox but i have to ask,how did you expect people to find the trial's?

Well, They're so hidden for a reason. As the above poster said, they ARE just like a big "Hey hey, FUCK YOU" to the player. Obscenley difficult and unfair, even by IWBTG's standards, so we really didn;t want normal players (See: people that start on medium) runnig into them and thinking they were a compulsory part of the game, so we hid them behind a bunch of stuff that we knew the more hardcore players that want to "100%" the game will find. The idea was that for the really hardcore players going through on their second time, they'd run into the trials naturally, and so far it seems to be working.

Basically, we dont want most people to see them. We put a lot of effort into them because of 2 reasons:

1: We wanted to reward the dedicated people that will actually see them. We are endlessley frustrated by games that offer only "Here, Grind this more" as the reward for more adventurous players, so we wanted to offer something really cool and challenging to the elite that play our game.

2: We want to encourage people to be like the above style, really seeing how much you can squeeze out of the game.

It's all about maximising mileage.

Re:  Zero_Destroyer:
A few of those issues are fixed. As for where you quit, we were going to change it, but an overwhelming number of people said it was their favourite screne in the entire game, so we just left it as it.

Thanks for reminding me by the way, I need to bug tij a bit more to fix some things in the X's area (We changed that a lot).

I heard just recently the "No Bow" thing was fixed. Also, glad to know you fixed the X's area, I honestly thought it could've been extended, maybe into something like the minecart ride (Just with platforms.). I'll be doing the trails (So long as there isn't 100 of them, lol.), I'll certainly be getting the secret items.  I can't wait for the release of the game. Oh, and I'll be able to manage scrolling room. It'll just be something that I'll have to get used to.

: show

to enter the trials, you need to grab the cake from GaLdOs
: show
secret boss item
or somthing i still lov this game 10/10 some freinds of mine are looking forward to the next update soon!

That's... Scary-close to what we've actually ended up doing...

I found a glitch. I think it MAY be linked to the secret item next to Alex, since this glitch stopped after I deleted the item, but:

It seems whenever I go to continue, it starts me out in the wrecking ball room, the spikes all raise, you hear the kid die (he isn't onscreen though) and you gear the death music, and see GAME OVER, Press R to try again. It is annoying, and it fucked my save (even though I was on the trials).

Speaking of the trials, after getting this prob fixed, I passed the first two trials. My opinions:

Trial 1: Put the save at the very start of the trials, next to Alex or something. I thought after I cleared those first  two platforms, they wouldn't hinder me again, and I saved in the next room. for the next 30 minutes, I attempted endlessly to get all of the 12 platforms in the two rooms, eventually, I got them, and saw that I had two left. It DESTROYED me. I went back though and managed to clear all 14. This was the most frustrating thing I've ever done in my entire life.

Trial 2: Make it harder, maybe more spinning blocks. Though I must say this one is fun.

Trial 3: Fucking brilliant and evil. I haven't passed it, but I LOVE it. it's more crazy than G&G's secret item. Can't wait to see Trial 4, I hope you guys put in at least 10, I'll be doing them.

.over 5 trials

.some will be moved or deleted
.GaLdOs will be upgraded harder..
.final area will have a different color to it...
.the chest and pokemon will return at the end

When you write it like that, it looks like a really short list :(

There's actually a whole lot more past that that we've done, Such as adding in menus and fixing up a lot of screens.

There's actually a lot of screens added into the mix in the middle of paths, and a few removed.
We also greatly extended the final streatch, and almost every screen has unique and clever new things on it, so that's good.

Anyway, I'm not going to release the 4th and 5th trials (Or anything that you may find after that), simply because we want what happens to be a surpprise.

It's worth it! When I first played the finished version, I was amazed with the 5th trial.

I'll try and dig up some more stuff to give you guys tomorrow. In the meantime, ModDB (http://www.moddb.com/games/i-wanna-be-the-fangame) has a vid up with a section of the new mario screens in it!

Why is this game freezing when I try to run it in CrossOver?  I thought CrossOver was compatible with Game Maker.  Is it possible to port this to the Multimedia Fusion engine?

Edit:  Never mind.  I got it to run in VMware Fusion.  And thank you, Salamander, for deliberately being an ass.

Owned by shitty software.  Just because something *says* its compatible, doesn't mean it runs it very well.

Hell no.  You should be slapped for even suggesting such a thing.

this game still continues to impress me...

also i made a record of where i got up to without getting killed

-middle- end of pokemon boss
- left - screen before the chest
-right- the Snake area (or the GaLdOs secret room)
-end- the only cherry in this game screen
-trials- 3rd trial

i know tijitdamijit has one this on impossible, so Matt what is your record?

PS when will the aprox release date be?  :D

Haha, my best is pitiful. I cant get past more than a few screens without a stupid death.

Release date will hopefully be soon ish.
I don't really want to give you numbers, because I'll probably be wrong, but We'd like to have it ready for RC testing in about 3 weeks.. So a month maybe? I don't really know. When it's done.

The mario section is roughly where the final boss fight is in your version. Imagine you go right on the screen before it, then there's a few extra things we made, then Mario.

I'd like to report a glitch, in case no one noticed my last post. I originally thought this had to do with a secret item, but i was wrong. It seems that now whenever I continue, it throws me into the wrecking ball room, all the spikes rise up, and the kid falls onto them. No method of escape. Even after I reload it does this, but if I start a new game, I'm safe. Fix this, please.

Let me explain how this works.. that room is the first one I ever made so it has the "0th" room index, and because I'm a lazy coder when I Started this project, all non-declared variables are automagically set to 0 if I try to implement them. So.. if you're touching a roomChanger object that hasn't been told what it's roomTo number is, it'll automatically throw you back to that room. Specifically, where are you being taken from?

This is quite a great game, but I don't really like the sound of a fangame.

I don't like many IWBTG fangames because they just weren't as well thought up as the normal game, if you added more known games with matching music the game would flow quite a bit better. I really would not recommend any games that aren't very popular because the people playing the game won't know what it is. With the regular IWBTG, most of the areas were easily recognized by people who know some of their Nintendo games, classics like Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda, Megaman, etc. were included because they are well known series to gamers. The point is, if people can't recognize some of the areas/bosses (besides your original ones) you shouldn't use them, because it will be a lot less like IWBTG.

Interesting that you point this out. This was a concern of mine from a long way back... mostly because I'd never heared of wonder boy 3, and IWBTFG for the first few screens is pretty much I Wanna Be The WonderBoy3, but after I played the game, I realized how clever it all was. We've tried to make more things later on be based around a lot of popular games that people will recognize.

Just off the top of my head:

Mario
Pokemon
Pac-Man
Doom
Bubble Bobble
Portal

These are all games that most people would recognize, and that's not even nearly half of the references we've put in the game. Hopefully once you start playing though the full thing, you'll see more of games you recognize. The first screens are earlier ones that we made, mostly for ourselves (See: before we ever thought we'd cap 500 downloads, let alone 20,000), so they were more obscure gaming references of games that Tij or I really liked.

So yeah, that's already addressed.


And since I'm here, we're going to be doing some work on the fangame pretty much now. Hop on the IWBTG IRC channel in a bit if you want to talk to us while we make your future gaming lives horribly difficult!

If you open the save file with notepad, you can change your x-coordinates and hopefully move yourself to a safe spot. I'd suggest making a copy of the save first though, just in case. If you're having trouble with that, just post your save here by clicking on Additional Options... while making a post and I'll fix it for you instead.

Oh man, I wish I could help you, but honestly it just sounds like your computer is messed up. Are you on linux? WINE might be causing some problems for you. If it's just on XP, I have no idea what could be causing that.

In other news, I'm using windows 7 at the moment, and currently the game just bluntly refuses to function on it, so we're going to have to sort that you before release. I have a few ideas on how to get around it.

Also, We finished re-doing the keyhole ride in the sky the other day, so it's a lot better now.

Sorry to say this, but you're trapped there. You're going to have to start again.

Tij put that there JUST to punish people playing on medium. It's ok, it's removed in the final version, but for now, sorry : \.

If you send me a convincing PM I might be able to hack you up a save close to that, but We'll have to see.

...So far I've beaten 1 boss on Impossible mode, each of the 3 first bosses, but after I deafeat the 1st I die in some other room...

Anyway, when is the final version being able to be downloaded?

Nope, the Endless desert bit (which in the latest build is removed) is the only place that can actually ruin your save.

@Tenka.o2SE We're working on that now! Hopefully it wont be more than a few weeks for now, but we all know there are going to be more delays, so who really knows.

I restarted on Hard and have been trying to get all the secrets and stuff. I've found myself in the 3 trials and managed to make it to the third one but died when I get to the end of the screen, how do you actually do the 3rd trial?  :-X

I've gotta say, I've been loving this game so far. I spent endless hours on IWBTG and I'm doing exactly the same with this. I do have a problem though.

I've been playing on Medium mode and uh,

saved in the Endless Desert...


What am I meant to do? I can't find a way out of it and everytime I reset I'll just end up back in the desert.  :(

What's the endless desert? I'm currently battling stickykeys, and I don't remember an endless desert at any point before it.

So if you reach the endless desert, you're trapped?  It isn't a secret or anything?  I've been going through it for about 5 minutes now, and I don't want to go back to the start.  Is there any end to it?  Surely the creator can't keep putting endless desert screens forever.  WHAT SECRET DOES IT LEAD TO?!

The endless desert is endless. When you try to leave the screen it moves you back to the other side of the screen.

However I wanna post my last accomplishment: Cleared the 3 trials on impossible mode and beaten Cacodemon (or whatever is called) and the pokeboss... I died in a room before the dragon... of course, Impossible mode too, but I bet when I kill the 3 bosses I will die in the "Psyche!" area.

Sry for double post but...

I tried to clear it on Impossible (as I always do with this game) and I decided to beat the dragon first...

When I finally did, I wanted to go for the pokeboss and when I killed Cacodemon this happened:

(http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/2015/damnvmh.jpg)


And here you have a little "movie" to explain it better...

http://yfrog.us/5aclip0004ntez

Way to go Tenka... way to go...

Nice "Anti-Cheat" Tijit, I was expecting the traps to dissapear or just to re-appear in that specific room but... that's what I get for trying to cheat (by removing the traps after the pokeboss).

By the way, there was no music after beating Cacodemon and the dungeon's music (Monster's Lair) was still being played when I returned to the starting point after beating the PokeBoss.

Yeah you gotta beat cacodemon before pokemon. I knew that would happen, I'm a bastard basically.

I also anticipated audio glitches.. but have no idea what was actually going to happen. If music doesn't play at all.. well needless to say I'm going to have to do something about that.

Sticky keys is easy.

Hopefully the rest of the game that you are working on will be difficult. Untill them i am dissapointed.

On another note, are there too many videos about this too?  I was thinking of doing a playthrough, but I need to know if there are too many vids of it on Youtube, like what happened with IWBTG.  I haven't seen all the walkthroughs, so I don't know how many there are.

*takes a chill pill*

Well, piesaregud, since you said pwease:
I'm currently in the middle of a two-week break, followed by 4 weeks of university, 1 week of revision and then about 3 weeks of exams. Followed by a 3-month break.
So I should almost definitely have the game done by Christmas.

The main thing holding me back is that all the university labs I chill out at have all been recently installed with linux, so I no longer have any windows computer at the university I can work on the game on. Also playtesting sessions have become a lot more rare.

Secret areas are spread all around the place. The sticky keys boss has been moved to the end, and a whole bunch of areas have been added imbetween. Due to lack of testing and work being done on the game (I've actually been sick for the last month and a half, and finding motivation to work on it is not a sure thing) the release is still a fair way away.

I'm debating whether I should have the boss as the finale, or a "OMG THE CASTLE IS EXPLODING RUN AWAY" Zelda OOT-style ending. I think the latter would be more epic, plus for those crazy people who are gonna play it on very hard or time trial mode* you'll have to beat the boss AND escape the castle without a save point.


*an unlockable play mode you get for beating the game - you play through one of the paths and try to do that path as quickly as possible. Best times will be recorded, and people will be able to show off their scores somewhere, depending on whether or not the fangame gets it's own forum.

OLDGREGEREY has it right, Tentacool messes up your controls.

You might see an apperance of him a bit later on in the game too, so keep an eye out.

Tij has gone so far as to change the shooting mechanic in the Mecha Sphegettio boss fight, it's that intense, so that's also going to be awesome. Lotsa' good stuff on the way dudes.

wow... I played this way back when he first finished stickykeys... he's still working on it?>??

;;edit;; I just caught up on like 25 pages of thread.  Sounds like you guys have put a lot of work into this.  TBH, the fact that it was more difficult than IWBTG was the one thing I didn't like about it.  The super difficulty of this game might destroy any chance of playing through it all over again from the beginning.  I'm certainly going to try though. 

I've been powering through IWBTG fangames lately, just to see where the community is at.  I restarted mine after like a year.  Remade the engine from scratch, threw in a dialogue system, etc.  I see there's a fangame that implemented giant Bullet Bills that blow through the scenery, which I had coded months before it came out... I wonder if any of the new content here includes ideas that I had for my game.

I remember you guys were talking about a Guitar Hero part before b3 was out.  Did you ever put that in?  I had a Rock Band part finished in my WIP before my old PC crashed, and I fully intend on remaking that screen as a boss fight.  Lemme know.  Looking forward to the full release.

We've got exams coming up so progress has slowed a little for a few weeks. In 2-3 weeks or so though we should be spending a lot of time on it to just get it out the door. We really need to get it finished so we can get onto other projects.

I hope you don't mind me posting this, but I thought it might be appropriate. Your post was much more polite then the people that the quote was directed at, but the fallacy of the argument is still a good thing to keep in mind.

Quote
- The ticking time bomb

Example:
Quote
because if you do, and the game is actually gonna be finished someday, no one will remember this game. because no one did hear any news of the progress for like a year.

Also known as: "If you don't give me the game now, I'm gonna leave and never come back. You're losing fans, man!!!" Again, this argument exists to put pressure on the team. They're in a race against time. If they don't finish the game quickly, there'll be nobody left to play it. (this goes back to the "praise is as good as money"-element) This is of course a fallacy, since the majority of people who downloaded the demo will play it, semi-forget about the game while they go on with life and regain interest when the full game is out. Of course, even the people who MAKE this argument and then leave when their demands aren't satisfied STILL come back and play the game when it's out. Don't worry, they will.

In other news, Me tij and Jamie (Another member of our group) are going to start more serious game develoment once this is done with. It's a pretty cool team we have here and we've got a bunch of really cool ideas on what to put out: iPhone development is looking like the first stop, probably followed by a steam release if we have time.

Cool stuff's happening. I should stat a blog.

I've been working on a top-down shooter, an 8-bit nostalgia FPS, Project Vhel, and the fangame. The first three I intend to go commercial with, and sell on Steam.

I recommend you take a look at Vhel: CLINK (http://www.moddb.com/games/vhel)

What does everyone think of an online achievements system? If everyone uses it, you can find out just how many other people have done certain things - ie defeated each boss, which secret items, and who has beaten the game.
Also, it's good statistics for me as well, and of course achievements are awesome (:

omg the achievement disease is now hitting iwbtg fangames as well!

I wouldn't mind one really, I even thought and discussed around adding one to tribute, but decided to do not

I mean... beating the game is an big achievement itself =p

I think it's a pretty good idea. You could put how many times you've died, triggers set off, and if you do a boss rush mode, the best times. Or something.

It would be a nice addition, but personally I wouldn't be any less happy if you didn't include it. If you think you might end up still working on extra features after release then I'd say save it for then, otherwise meh. At the moment I'm taking the philosophy that we've been waiting so damn long I don't really care what extra features are in it as long as I can actually play the game when it's done. xD

I was hoping to have the trailer done by monday, but I'm at a LAN from friday 7pm till saturday 9pm, and on sunday I have a karate grading. Maybe wednesday then, depending on shtuff

@StillTheKid: I sort-of have that set up already, a friend of mine just gave me his php which shouldn't be too hard to modify.. and I can get free hosting from a whole bunch of sites.

Currently, I'm working on:
-Final Credits Sequence
-Final Chase Scene
-Time Trial Mode (It's pretty much done, I Just gotta add some method of recording your records, and selecting it in the main menu)

wtf is with the main room? And how come there is only a single path? IWBTG was way better than this. It had multiple paths and the starting room at the beginning wasn't a pain in the ass like this one. Personally, I think it needs alot of work. Eliminate a good number of spikes in the first room. And the cross falling down? Okay once or twice, but not that many times. I didn't really get a good feel for the game. It feels more like a chore than a game. Try to improve the fun factor a bit:)

Post by: *Lionheart* on December 04, 2009, 09:22:31 pm
Then why can you only go to ONE in the beginning? That is pretty linear, unlike IWBTG. A linear path game is no justified tribute to IWBTG. It needs to have all or most of the paths accesible from the beginning.

Most of the different paths can be found near the beginning of the game; in fact, there's actually one hidden on the very first screen.

I'd be happy to show you if my computer hadn't of crashed halfway through the project. I will have to restart it. It was called We Wanna Be The Guy and was about two brothers from Kid village who ventured out together to thwart The Guy and assume the throne. You could be either the Red Kid or the Blue Kid and each of them had unique abilities. You could also use them together to progress the game. Such as having one throw the other across a bed of spikes and then have the thrown brother activate the moving platform for the other. It was a puzzle game as well as it was a adventure game. It had all the difficulty of IWBTG but with puzzles too. Most of them involved mazes and riddles. The bosses were more magestic than IWBTG, several of them took up more than one screen, and you had to climb up to face them. I am currently working on a project called The Legend Of Pyro, and it will be released in four to five weeks on my website. It is different from IWBTG, but it utilizes the same platformer genre. Instead of just a gun, the main character, Pyro, could shoot fire, lay bombs like bomberman, use a safety jump to save himself from lethal drops after he picked the item up, and could enter speed boost mode. IWBTG is in that game. You get transported to the world of The Guy halfway through the game and have to work with The Kid to retrieve all the secret items so he could become The Guy as well as blow a hole in reality through which Pyro could escape. If you want to see a screenshot, look at my picture. I haven't any other pictures than that.
 So, untill I either finish it, or redo my fan game, you are SOL pal.

Then why can you only go to ONE in the beginning? That is pretty linear, unlike IWBTG. A linear path game is no justified tribute to IWBTG. It needs to have all or most of the paths accesible from the beginning.
Just because you don't have the thinking power to find them doesn't mean they don't exist.
Total win

Okay...

Who's side are you taking? And if I could, I would like to ask a question.

Does what I say about the owner of this thread's game have anything to do with them? Can't I just make suggestions? I realize it was stated forcefully but I am brutally honest, I don't try to candy-coat things. I was only telling him what I thought he could change. I was not insulting HIM, just his game. So isn't all this bickering irrelevant?

I think i'm going to stop responding to unkind posts about whether or not i'm a jackass, because, frankly, I don't really really care.

And how so?

What I was doing was a little thing called "Contrsuctive Critism"?
Some would accept that as advice and try to better themselves with it.

And Komaku seems to be the only one here I like, because she reasons with me instead of swearing at me. So, if any of you want to get anything out of me anymore, I suggest you don't do it in an abrasive manner. You talk to me and I'll talk to you. I've had enough of this arguing.

Post by: *Lionheart* on December 05, 2009, 01:30:12 am
I understand. I too, am obsessed with anime, and animated girls ARE freaking hot. My top three series are Bleach, Death Note, And Code Geass, and pretty much anything else that has Jonny Busch as the main character's voice. Now back to the topic:

Things I did like about it;

1. I liked the layout of the first room, but I felt that he had a wee too many spikes. It would be cool if the room was plain, and you felt all safe and protected, but when you return from a path you have to fight a miniboss or something like that.
2. The graphics for the first path DID rock, did he rip them from a game, or draw them himself, because they seem kind of familiar...as does the music. The only downfall was that you could'nt go in the castles, and that most of the ground looks real but isn't; I hate those type of traps.
3. The endless desert was a cool concept, sort of reminds me of Gerudo Valley from Zelda 64. Only I didn't like those crosses that were suspended in mid-air. They really don't make sense, but then, what really does in a game? I can't say anymore because I haven't given the game a fair trial run. I probably will, though, if I have the time between school and working on my own game at the same time.

Well, Bleach is picking up its act right now. They have already ventured into Los Noches to face the arrancars, and ichigo just beat the crap out of and killed grinmjow. But it isn't over yet. They haven't finished writing the next season.

And no, I have not. I don't know how to get to it:(
  Its not in the main room is it? Because every time I go into one of the passages it takes me to the same place.

Haha, Oh snap.
We've done a lot of tweaking in this version... and by a lot, I mean that pretty much every room has changed.

I played through BetaV3 recently and I was cringing the entire time..."Did we seriously release this shit?!"

Anyway, We're working on the ending now (Not to spoil it, but it's going to be awesome), and have finished up most of the work on well.. everything. It's nearly there!

The original plan was to have it out for Christmas, but I'm heading to Bali for 3 weeks on monday, so You guys are probably looking at new years for release.
That being said, The end is in sight! We're looking into other stuff at the moment too (C# looks like the future for bigger projects).

Hey man, that's all it was, I wasn't trying to insult you. Though I may have come on about it a bit harshly. (what am I saying, I DID come on too harshly)

I gave your game another try, though. Can't get past the jet from hell. I figured I had to beat it back to the beginning so I wouldn't get hit when it bombs the place. The pac-man area was cool, if not a tad confusing at first.

The Endless Desert is something tijit put into the game to punish people who try to get the Secret Items on Medium Mode (if I recall the post explaining it correctly). If you saved in there you have to start again unless you attach your save file to a post and someone is kind enough to rescue it for you. Apparently it's been removed in the final version.

Is V3 still the latest version or did I miss a newer post? I watched the walkthrough and I have to say that gameplay wise it looked pretty fun, though certain parts were slow. However the game lacks ascetic appeal. Also the last boss seemed somewhat anti climactic.

Yeah, closed beta testing will start like.. heaps soon. It's not quite ready but I figure it can't hurt. There is a new ending, and an incomplete credits sequence.

Stuffs:

-14,284 Lines of Code
-3,531 rooms generated (not all of them are being used)
-8,191 objects generated
-7,800 sprites and background textures
-More than 25 MB of Music and Sound Effects
-3 Fonts
-Project Started 11th October 2008
-More than 10 secret items/areas/bosses (and more to come, that part hasn't quite been finished yet)
-3 Fonts

All up I think the final file size is looking at around.. maybe 28MB? Shouldn't be too bad for those poor suckers who are still on dialup.


Right now my priority is finishing the secret areas, getting the Trailer released, and getting the closed beta to all those who I deem are eligible to playtest the final version before it has been released.

The main reason for this is it is incomplete, meaning I really have to get my arse in gear and finish off the little bits and pieces stopping it from being done.

Don't take this the wrong way but I dislike the way this forum has changed. I'm just interested in this game and some other fangames and they are mostly the reason I visit this place.

Hope you guys all had an awesome christmas. I'm back home now (Bali was awesome), and I'm still in the process of going through the game (AGAIN) to iron the bugs out and finish testing everything (God damn spike corridor), so it's all looking good!

Some of the secret areas are goddamn ludicrous, and some stuff that tij came up with while I was gone is just insanely cool. I really hope a whole lot of you will go hunt down these secret areas, because I really think that they are some of the best parts of the game.

Enough talking about how great we are, Tij you've gotta get over here with your laptop so we can finish this trailer. You free tomorrow?

They're secret and they'll stay that way.. or at least until people put up youtube vids of them. But they're so hard to find and some of them are so difficult that I'm guessing it'll be a fairly long amount of time before people have found them all. I'm not underestimating you guys, I'm just an evil bastard, and wanted something that'll last. So I think somehow that me and the other developers are gonna have a bet on how quickly people can find all the items. I would say 2 months, but only coz I know there are some people out there who aren't gonna stop until they find them.

Downloded, played, awesome.

Haven't had much time to play, but I'll try to go on tonight. Stuck on the first flower.

The more you say how hard it will be to find the items, more motivated the members will become, if it was planed to be hard to find, prepare to be amazed. Not for me though, I'm still strugling to beat IWBTG, secrets are not for me.

 You can doge it by double jumping on one corner of the room just before he shoots it, and running towards the other corner as it goes towards you.


As for deleting secrets in the beta; we didnt really Delete them, so much as improve them. Some are entirely different, and other you will have to get to via a different entrance.

Expect a lot to be different, but the base is there.

Seriously, we are SO CLOSE here. We were hoping for a new years release, but a week long Game Jam came up and we sorta had to enter. The theme's "All things must come to an end", so, you know: Tij is making a platformer that you inevitably have to loose, I'm doing something with black holes for the iPhone.

Finally gotten around to playing it yesterday. Pokemon was a pain in the neck, but took my about 15 minutes. Same for the big red bastard... now I'm just trying to finish the section AFTER the doom boss... that's just cruel...

Then I gotta take the right path I guess? Need to fight bub now...

Edit: I'm now on the spike screen before bub... I think I'm gonna have a migraine...  :'(

Edit 2: Why does everyone say Bub is easy. He is kicking my ass. I haven't been killed by a bubble yet but those... what the hell are they? Haribo? They keep killing me. This game is great though. Does remind me an awful lot of IWBTG.

Tijit, I just got to the final area (I'm assuming, haven't watched any videos), and am in the chase sequence now... I freaking love it. Although, I don't think the song that's playing suits a chase sequence. I've been listening to that loop from running in the 90's to get in the mood for it. I just reckon it works so much better.

Anyway, this game is a masterpiece, you've outdone yourself... this is the only 'I wanna' game I've actually enjoyed a boss fight in.

I gotta find some appropriate music for the background of the trailer, and add a bit that says "I wanna be the Fangame: Coming Soon!" But besides that it's pretty much done.

I fixed the pacman area (finally) and did a lot of other cool stuff yesterday. The closing credits bit is so close to being finished.. I heaps have to fix up the final sticky keys boss now. I'll give it less health, but make it so only shooting the cancel button does any damage. Plus I'll remove that ridiculous rainbow attack

Yeah, closed beta testing will start like.. heaps soon. It's not quite ready but I figure it can't hurt. There is a new ending, and an incomplete credits sequence.

Stuffs:

-14,284 Lines of Code
-3,531 rooms generated (not all of them are being used)
-8,191 objects generated
-7,800 sprites and background textures
-More than 25 MB of Music and Sound Effects
-3 Fonts
-Project Started 11th October 2008
-More than 10 secret items/areas/bosses (and more to come, that part hasn't quite been finished yet)
-3 Fonts

All up I think the final file size is looking at around.. maybe 28MB? Shouldn't be too bad for those poor suckers who are still on dialup.


Right now my priority is finishing the secret areas, getting the Trailer released, and getting the closed beta to all those who I deem are eligible to playtest the final version before it has been released.

Something I've been wondering about is, what does rooms generated actually mean? How is it different from rooms used? Why is this number so high?

I'm not really the best expert on this, but I'll pitch in anyway. Rooms are generated when you create a room (obviously), but a lot of times, you get odd things happening like GM 'generating' 20 or so extra rooms that are promptly deleted.. so I dont know.

Basically, sometimes when you create a room, this number goes crazy.
And because it's so high, we can brag about it. Boo yah!

Why don't you invest in an external drive? They've lowered in cost and have tons more storage than when they first came out...

Don't forget that a fair few are secret areas, menu rooms, deleted scenes etc

Deleted scenes? Does that mean that after about 6 months after the game's release, we'll see a IWBTFG Director's Cut?  Actually, that kinda sounds cool...

So we have to play the same game twice, just with added extras?
What a ri-- wait, at least its free. Unlike The Lego Games... it will also have replay value anyway am i right?

Actually we'll probably start charging $50 for the easter edition.

It would be hilarious if you beat the original game after finding all of the secrets, and it gave you a coupon code for the easter edition based on how long you took to beat it/how many times you died, kind of like the ranking system after the first Metal Gear Solid game...

Haha, If we ever did charge for something like this, I'd love to offer it free to anyone who could beat the fangame on impossible.

In other news, We have a website up and running! I wont tell you where it is, because it's not done yet, but it works!

Nonono.... If you look closely at the way Mark worded his sentence:

So....how many more nanoseconds must I endure wait before the final release of I wanna be the fangame comes out?

He says 'I', as in how long must HE wait.  Yes, he has to wait 5 months.

For the rest of us, it's whenever the game is released, which, hopefully, will be sooner than that.

For me, this is sort of having the same effect that Advent Children did to me back in high school.

First the announcement, then the 2 different trailers showing up teasing us about it (screenshots of the game), then people going to see half of it at a film festival (beta release of the game), then it finally releases in japan (private beta testers of the game), hints at English dub (trailer nearing release of the game), release, disappointment.

So, as excited as I am to see this nearing completion, I just don't want to get my hopes up extremely high to let myself be that disappointed with the end product.

With that said, though, I still am looking forward to dedicating class time, working hours, and any attempt whatsoever at a social life the rest of my free time to complete it 100%!

Vhel: Bits and pieces of little things have been done but not enough to brag about.

BIG UPDATE

Fangame: Finished tweaking the final boss today. Heaps gotta finish off the intro and outro sequences, then there's just a few minor things, including secret item sfx, some sort of transportation room, the moving water tiles in the pokemon area, fixing up a death sequence involving a certain mushroom. I'm kind of liking the idea of open testing, just for the people at this forum, and I'll release it more large scale later, on moddb and whatever else. Also everybody bug Matt to finish off the website. It currently looks like this http://iwbtfg.hatchlingbyheart.com/ (http://iwbtfg.hatchlingbyheart.com/). Features randomised (old) screenshots on the right there. Heaps want to set up a forum for it as well. But if it's destined to end up anything like this place then fuck that lol

I've been too secretive about development I think. I heaps just want to get this released, and then I can finish off the secret levels and fix any outstanding bugs later, when the community has had a while to mess with it. I'll also release a beta build of I wanna Time Travel! at the same time, if anybody is still interested in that.
On that note most of the areas that will have secret areas in future builds, if found, will have a thing telling you to come back later, or something, so that those who explore the shit out of this game won't have overlooked something before it's even in the game.
There are currently 9 secret items, and I want to have 12-16 in the final build.

Way to tell me you were posting that -_-

But yeah, that sounds good. I do need to finish that site. I think we should actually scrub it up so the game is 'complete' before this release (i.e intro/outro is done, main paths are done) before we let you guys get at it, but I think releasing a version that we can update is a good idea. It's getting to a point where I just want to be done with it.

I had quite a lot of trouble here too. I found it useful to just use 2 blocks in the corner and jump between them every few seconds. This should help you easily dodge them all, instead the ones coming from right above you.

I'll need about 28 more hours.

A note: The first people to complete the game and unlock all available secret areas and items and prove it win exclusive playtesting on future builds, and probably other projects created by myself. It's not much.. but I can't really afford to give away cash prizes, and I thought a little incentive like that would put the pressure on pro players who want to finish this as quickly as possible.

It's a cool incentive, don't get me wrong, but I enjoy playing through my games at a leisurely pace rather than trying to be one of the first people to beat it once it's released...  that said, I will do my best to try to beat the game with every single secret area found! (I was about to ask how you would know if people breezed through it on Medium, I'm reminded by the No Bows area... Damn, there went my idea!)

The first people

How many people were you thinking of doing this with?

Post by: tijit on March 01, 2010, 05:05:02 am
@Mkid: There are no longer any "no bows" area in the new release - you can get any item on any difficulty.

As for number of people who get this? Well.. I'd have to say around 3-5. Any more than that, and there'll be youtube walkthroughs and stuff and everyone will have cheated by that point :P

Also beta v4 is essentially the finished game - any further releases will be for bugs fixes and patching etc.

I'll need about 28 more hours.

A note: The first people to complete the game and unlock all available secret areas and items and prove it win exclusive playtesting on future builds, and probably other projects created by myself. It's not much.. but I can't really afford to give away cash prizes, and I thought a little incentive like that would put the pressure on pro players who want to finish this as quickly as possible.

28 hours D: im still strggling with the Tribute...but anyway yeah uhhh im not a big fan of completing the game as fast as possible and also how can you tell if people cheat and stuff

In the Mecha Dragon area (the countdown section) what's the song that is playing?

The boss music from wonder boy 3.

NEIN! Not the actual Mecha Dragon 'fight', the small section leading to it past Pac Man's area.

Yeah, the save format is being changed for beta 4.

Apparently, it will now be nontrivial to modify. (No more plain text saves I guess)

I'll probably change the algorithm again by tonight, since you guys are so fuckin keen to break it.

@Captain Random: It's from Ape Escape. The tune is called Galaxy Monkey.


In this release I'm also trialling a mode called "Time Attack". You start with 10 minutes, killing a boss gives you an additional 6 minutes, you have to beat the game before the timer runs out. It's heaps glitchy (ie some of the music breaks), but you'll still have to beat that mode in order to get all available items. I'll need people to playtest that mode thoroughly if they want it to be an official feature in a future patch.

Can't wait for May 10th!!

In all seriousness, just keep working at the game until it's complete. Between midterms and working until 1am every other night, I'm completely lacking time to do anything... Once it's done, I'm sure I won't be sleeping for a few weeks (or will consume my whole spring break) in order to beat it.

He's testing it so that everything is perfect- no bugs, no crashes, no way someone in the first 24 hours could hack the save file- just trying to cover all the bases.

Imagine if a gaming company did this - They 'completed' the game, but didn't have the resources to go through and check to see if there were any game-crippling bugs to sort out. So they release the game, people find out that there IS a game-crippling bug, and everyone is upset, they pull the rest of the copies off the shelf, they give free fixed games to those who bought the bad version on top of another free game- a huge loss of money, sure, but also damaging the company's reputation.

Man, it would be horrible if a gaming company this day and age ever pulled a stunt like th-*COUGHCOUGH*CODEMASTERS*COUGH*BUBBLEBOBBLEREVOLUTIONDS*COUGHCOUGH*

Yes, this game is free, but the point is that this is the version that will be the first 'full' version that he's releasing of it, so he wants everything to go perfectly, and you can't rush perfection *SLIPS TIJIT $100AU*

This exactly. If I release, it gets a shitload of downloads, and an area is epically broken, then well people are probably going to assume it's like that and keep trying to beat it over and over.

There is one part of the game that IS broken - time attack mode. Time attack mode is a beta in the final release (I'll release a patch or whatever) but to activate that mode you need to just press 'B' in the menu. It's for pros only - it requires a (was 34 minute, is now 40 minute, just coz I'm a biased playtester) speedrun, in that you start the game with 16 minutes, and every time you beat one of the four bosses you gain an additional 6 minutes. (Final boss doesn't count) If you run out of time you lose and have to start again.
It's broken coz it'll take too long to find all the problems myself, and need you guys to tell me every place where the music is broken, or the kid can get stuck etc.

Oh and btw - @Mkid there'll be a donation page on our site, if you want to gives me a monies :P.
Hopefully I'll get enough to afford lunch every now and then (:

I claim to know nothing about programming games, but I did find something that works.

Download the attached .bat file and put it in the same folder as your I wanna be the Fangame files.

Run the .bat file to play the game, as soon as the player is done playing, it deletes the 'temp' file that is left when you close the game, so that next time you load up the game, the clock is not displayed.

It's a crude way to get around it, but it works for the time being...

EDIT: Oh yeah, make sure the executable is called 'IWBTF.exe' for this to work.

EDIT 2: Fixed.

WTF Tijit.
You programmed the game to recognise a save exists if and only if the thumbnail picture exists?
Get rid of the save file and not the picture and you can play on the title screen by 'continuing', and you can't transfer save files around unless you also have the picture for it.

Thumbs up on this game, it has already broken me. Fuck you for making the trials harder (I don't remember the flowers) and Trial 5 scared the shit out of me, I couldn't tell if that was my heart beating or the game. Now that I have beaten the trials I think I might take a looooooong break...

The Lag Spike room, while clever, annoyed the hell out of me only because of the previous room, which took me quite some time. Thanks to there being no save in the Lag Spike room I died only because I was being too cautious of traps. (Then proceeded to screw up the room 3 more times).


Also getting to the Trials was a pretty obvious secret if you ask me.

OK, to address some bugs that have popped up:

1. Saves not loading etc when there's no image and vice versa
This will never happen if you don't fuck around with the images in the first place. However I can fix it, it was to do with the new menus I implemented

2. Save files getting corrupted
I cannot for the life of me work out what the fuck is going on there, but me and sammy will probably take a look at that tomorrow at university, approx 16 hours from now

3. @emm see: Okay I just worked out what you were talking about.. that's for some reason actually a surprisingly hard thing to fix.. I'll work on it


@MKidTriGun: I'm pretty sure that's actually a bulldozer.

Also, these bugs weren't "there after all this time", they've popped up recently due to not much time to playtest every single thing as thoroughly as possible.


@Jeed-Unit: congratulations0rz!!! like, fucking awesome dude. Also anyone else who's already beaten it, considering this was released less than 12 hours ago.. you have 10 items to collect. Get 'em, boys.

It actually happens all the time if you want to move save files to a clean directory of the game (Like if the game was just extracted)
Title: Re: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL
Post by: tijit on March 10, 2010, 04:57:36 am
OK.. fixed the bug with the mario area and the menu images. However - I don't think I can fix the bug to do with the save files getting corrupted without re-writing the encoding algorithm.. meaning everyone's save files will become useless - short of me writing a converter program, which won't take long but is a huge hassle. I guess it's just for you guys, the game hasn't been released on moddb yet and hopefully I can catch it before it goes through.

Thanks for all the bug reports guys, really appreciate it.

Hmm I did found a couple of bugs. Most of them are obvious, but some are quite amazing really. To name a few, the warp at the top of the second room of the right way (under the cherry room) is really fucked up. Depending at where you stand, you can either get to the cherry room, an empty room or the next room at the bottom (which makes you able to get to the wtf room ;) )

In time attack, in the first room, if you reset stading on the leftmost cloud right after entering that screen from the left, it seriously mess up the save file. It will spawn a load of kids until the game crashes and returns to the main screen, still spawning a load of kids.

Modified the save encoder so that:

1. Saves should no longer get corrupted
2. Old saves (like from the final builds) WILL BE COMPATIBLE so that you don't have to start over.

Also menu bugs and that bug in the mario area have also been fixed

That I messed it up, when I found sticky I went back and the music changed, I saved and now I just finished the game CHEATING, I'm ashamed... Is there anyway to take back my save? I wanna kill Sticky...

There is one area before you fight Sticky, where the door closes with spikes, if you go back is like you killed it... I got scared and saved, and... finished the game, when I wanna load, this page appears:

(http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/7091/sinttulow.jpg)

And, if I enter there, it leads me to the begginning, with the 3 keys already gotten, though...

I'm playing in hard mode by the way, maybe that would help... however; if it would be possible to get back my save before fighting Sticky I would be really happy, because I don't feel realized when I finished the game like this without wanting... and if there is no other way... I'll redo all.

Its a silly bug in the earlier versions of the 'final' release (I don't know if the fixed version is out yet), however the solution is to first save the game in the save slot you want, then copy the save file you want into the game folder.

Don't know if this glitch has been mentioned yet, but if you play a game, then play the same file on impossible, then go back to the main screen and play again, it still has your other game's screenshot, and when you go in to play again it automatically goes into impossible mode.

Hi i not usually post my thoughts about games but your game
is to amazing to not say this and i hope you can accept some costructive critisism

: show

Right path: the extra screen for the IWBTG area was cool and hard as well, so there is
nothing to say about it.
Now in the purple and blue area (i dunno how it is called) i dont like the music i think you should
add something more fast (i think that the IWBTG music fits perfect).
The part that has a life bar and an enemy radar, its HARD but funny, but i think it doesnt look good
i think is because of the spikes (i think they dont look good there) 


When i finish the Left path ill post again

hey tijit and hey to all,
i registered me on this forum to say that this game you have created is a absolute masterpiece! i played the beta 3 times before and yesterday the final version and it was awesome. the changes from the beta to the final version are great and i had a lot of fun.

but it was not only me who had fun, i broadcasted the game on jtv in front of about 350 people and all liked it too. i think many of them downloaded the final version too. it was not a 100% run but i got 4 items. i think in the next days im gonna try a 100% run.

again, i really want to thank you and your team for the hard work you put onto this game. like i said. its a masterpiece in my opinion. thank you for creating this game!

i archived my live run on youtube. i hope you dont think its cheap advertisement. just want to share my run and emotions with you. of course i made live commentary on it, too.

Post by: Elmo3000 on March 12, 2010, 01:11:38 pm
I played. I won. I liked very much, well done! The ending was awesome!

I can't remember exactly how many secret items I got, but I think it was 6. Some of them were really hard though!

One problem/glitch I've found is that (I was playing after I'd won, if that makes a difference) if you take the right path until you're at the screen that looks like the first screen of IWBTG, go to jump up, but push against the right wall as you go, you'll be at a new screen, on top of the IWBTG one, where all you can see is the string that holds the wrecking ball. If you fall back down, sometimes you go straight to the room 2 rooms down.

Apart from that, awesome. One or two questions though - I played on Hard, and Pacman doesn't come all the way out any more, making it impossible to get to one of the secret items. Is this only available on very hard, or is there some trick? And at the aforementioned IWBTG bit, there used to be a secret item, and now the entrance to it is gone, although there is another entrance which is fairly impossible to get to when the wrecking ball falls and destroys the blocks towards it. Is that a secret item path too?  :P I'm a perfectionist... I wanna 100% this!

At the end of the bats sequence (I did indeed swear at them) there's the big exit, and there's a tiny, one-block path at the top. Please tell me that's not a path to one of the secret items... it would be too tough to get to!

I was wondering the same thing. Nope. The room is supposed to be unreachable, but if you get there there's an easter egg.  ;D

I currently have five, by the way. I have the feeling that I missed a few, seeing as how I just passed Grim Reaper.

EDIT: Whoa. I just reached the "WTF? How the heck did you get here?!" room.

EDIT: Okay, figured out how I did it. Go into time attack and go right. Then drop into the wrecking ball room, but jump back up and hug the right wall. Then go left until you drop into a wall. Go right and get near the wrecking ball until you drop down twice, and you'll be in a different wall. Go left and you'll fly down until you hit the unreachable spot. Then go right. Cheesy

Today I sped through the desert, got the green key, probably missed like two secret items, went down IWBTGland and (what game is the purple game with the dollar signs?) Zone, accidently got the destruction missile, saved in The Apeture Science Enrichment Center. Making a hell of a lot more process then my first run (did I just get awesome or was the top part of the ruinsy area toned down?)

p.s I hate that new pounder thing so much

p.p.s I don't think there's any way I can do the time attack because I suck at doing games fast. I can settle for 90%

Okay, I have no idea where the rest of the secrets are. I have the Green Potion, Blue Potion, Missile, Cake, Trials Trophy and the Rupee.
The game is kinda disheartening me to actually go out and find them since every time I go to check a place and find nothing I have to go all the way through the path and beat the boss all over again just to get back to the beginning. How many other secrets are there?

Also some confirmation, Pacman blocking the way to that other secret (from the beta) was intentional right?

Yes. This and the area that used to be the right of the wrecking worth both easier to find than going the way I intended for you to go, so they were both either moved or removed. There are TEN secret items in total, plus one room which displays all the items you currently have. (Although you can just look in your folder called "achievements")
One of the secret items is acquired by completing the game in time trial mode. The other three are probably the three that are both the hardest to locate and hardest to complete. Since some people have already found them, I don't so much giving out hints: There's one on the left path, one on the right path, and one on the path between reaper and SK bosses.
There's only one item in the tower/pokemon path (blue potion) because it's not only the shortest path, but also anything I tried to hide there was way too obvious to find. A solution to this of course would be to have added another area - but I wanted to get this game released.

Ah, thanks for the hints. I just discovered a way into that unreachable area past the falling wrecking ball, it involves a glitch you can use at the save point in the room that looks like the first screen to IWBTG. Jumping up to the next screen sometimes puts you at the bottom of the screen you jumped from, if you do this just right you can get ahead of the bouncing wrecking ball. Although I assume this was partly intentional because of what was in the unreachable room.

Guess I will try to find these other secrets (I already know where the achievements room is, but I fear the item that can be found past the Reaper).

a few bugs on glados:

- if you kill her while the white lines are on screen, you will die after she's dead and there's no way to escape because the portals on the walls are gone
- sometimes the missiles do an 360º instant turn and gib your face randomly
- sometimes on the white laser line attack, you have to go in the other portal, but the elevators on that side are all too far from the portal and you fall to your spiky death

Post by: Elmo3000 on March 13, 2010, 10:37:09 pm
I know for a fact that I won't get all the items (I still haven't even found the 'Achievement Room' thing...) so I might as well tell people who have a shot at it, that if you take the top exit at the end of the bats sequence, you do indeed come across a secret item... but first... one more rather challenging obstacle... with awesome music.

After this I'll try the time trial...

EDIT: Well, I found the Item Room... but since I've been playing the game from the Winzip file it was in without extracting it, I don't think it counted any of my items. In the item room, I had nothing except for the 3 keys. So, on a lighter note, I have to collect EVERYTHING again!  ;D

On the bright side, I only had about 8 things anyway...

SECOND EDIT: Strange glitch, none of my items are showing up in the treasure room. I even went and collected them all again with the game extracted... Is this meant to happen?

Tijit, you are a glorious bastard.

My review on the first three trials:

: show
TRIAL 1: Please, for the love of GOD, add a save where you first enter. I find it annoying to go from the 2nd room to the 1st room to the 2nd room to the 3rd room. It get's aggravating. Now, if you intended that, nvm. Otherwise, this appears to be the hardest trial from what I've played. You have to have the PERFECT run to get the massively complicated jumps and patterns done without dying.

TRIAL 2: Make it harder. Even after adding falling platforms and increasing the complexity of the spinning blocks, it remains luck based, and the problem there lies in the fact that it takes a TINY amount of luck to be able to bypass the trial. Maybe actually create a pattern?

TRIAL 3: Still haven't completed, but based off what I've played, it's perfect. The plants firing at you makes the difficulty perfect for the 3rd trial, though the 1st still overshadows it in difficulty, IMO.

The other two I fear and hope to see.



IMPORTANT EDIT, PLEASE READ TIJIT:

: show
I believe that the rocket item in the room with all the food (you get to it by going the way you went in beta 3 to get to portal) is messed up. There are two entrances, and I can tell you intended for us to use the second, more hidden one. However, using the first entrance is very possible. From that first entrance, You can jump over the wall mine, go down, get the spike to come up, avoid it, jump down onto a moving platform, then jump up to grab your secret item. I initially thought this was the intended way until seeing jtvmichael2010's playthrough and realizing "Oh shit! I was doing it wrong!". Excuse me if both paths were intended, it just seems like the first way was unintended to actually be able to work.

MY review on Trials 1-5:

: show
1. Took me quite a while, but I wouldn't say it was hard, just annoying that I had to keep wasting time by going backwards.
2. Second hardest. For whatever reason, this took me forever. I can still see those tiles!
3. Looked very hard, but I actually did it pretty fast.
4. I didn't get this one. Was it a joke or what?
5. The absolute hardest thing on any IWTBTG game I've ever played (in a bad way). Seriously, I've tried this for like four hours now, and I always die. I can only get by the falling and dodging spikes part once in every twenty tries or so, and then I always screw up or get killed by some unknown obstacle. I've tried this so much and no longer have any desire to attempt it again, so I'm basically trapped in the Trials rooms. I would love it if there were some way to just skip this one section...
Title: Re: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL

My opinion on Trials 4-5:

: show
TRIAL 4: Lol'd at lagspike, but I was scared to death I'd die. Thankfully i didn't. The third trial is WAY worse than I initially thought.

TRIAL 5: Nigh impossible. In fact, I'm fully convinced you must be an outright master at platforming to be able to beat this. MAKE THIS EASIER. It jumps from ridiculous difficulty in Trial 3 to a joke in Trial 4 to a borderline impossible task. Make this a more realistic challenge, I doubt many could even figure out what to do at the beginning.

I don't see why everyone hates the trials so much.

First: I do hate having to go back and forth, but it's pretty fun.
Second: This one is pretty easy, too.  Just jump on the non-falling spikes, so you can save the falling ones for when you have to use them.
Third: This is the perfect difficulty.  It's really fun and the plants made it even better.
Fourth: I lol'd so hard.  This screen took me four tries, but it's pretty easy.
Fifth: It really isn't THAT bad.  It's fun and easy to figure out.  I just don't really like the spikes that fly up at the end.


Right now, I'm stuck on the reunion section.

Ok, wow, a whole lot of rage on trial 5.
That's ok, I understand your pain! Tij made that one solo and gave me the final trial as a whole to test, and you probably noticed that I didn't get him to change a damn thing. The initial plan for trials was for it to be THE elite challenge within the game. Trial 5 is supposed to be the hardest section in the game, and if anything the other are all much too easy.

The reason they aren't harder is to encourage people to actually finish the trials. I think T5 is one of the coolest screens in the game, and certinally one of the most satisfying to finish.

The problem, of course, is people who accidentally run into the trials and cant get out after being brickwalled at T5.
The initial argument against us having a teleport out of there is to encourage people to actually do it. It's hard, yeah, but it's also quite possible (I managed it within about 4 hours and I'm not all that amazing at platforming, though I was on a bit of a roll at the end). I suppose the reason we didn't end up putting one there was that it was so close to the intended first path that we figured that if it happened, people could just start again and only loose ~4 screens of progress.

So.. that's sort of why it's the way it is. I know it's frustrating, but if you can beat trials, you ARE one of the elite. Not being able to beat trial 5 is no shortcoming; It's probably one of the hardest platforming instances in semi-popular games ever created.

So, to anyone that did beat it; NICE!


Edit: Zero_Destroyer: We intended for your comment on that item, indeed, to be impossible, but lets be honest, if you can manage it you DESERVE to win the item. Congrats, you discovered a new solution!

Just an FYI: We love watching Lets Plays (I've wasted a lot of my life watching them so far). From a design perspective, they are incredible to watch. Seeing people solve puzzles in new ways that we hadn't considered is so great, and watching you mess up 'simple' stuff is hilarious. Go team!

Also, Me and Tij, along with 2 others made an entry for the Adelaide GDC Game Jam #2 in a week that we're pretty happy with. It's not a hard came, and it's not that great or long (We made it in a week after all), but if you'd like to take a look at it, let me know.

The secret with all the inivisible blocks is either one fuckload of a riddle or just basicly impossible!

Me and sicrow7 spent at most 3-4 hours on ustream trying to figure this out.

Nope, only the main ones. In fact, going into secret areas at all in time attack mode is generally a bad idea.

I actually used two of them in my run  9_9 but I'm not sure it was really a good idea for one of them. I probably lost like 15 seconds, except I didn't die

Hey, if anyone's interested, I'll upload a video showing every secrets... but only when I'll at least see a few more people get all of them. So work on it, because it's already all recorded. I'm just waiting for you guys ;) Anyway, here's a preview.

It only shows how to get the blue potion which I'm pretty sure everyone have already found ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SSfux9zU3Y (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SSfux9zU3Y)


And by the way, like I wrote in the description, I'm doing this because someone will eventually do it (and since people have already started spoiling everything :P) so I'd rather be it, and that way I'm sure it will be a good quality video ;) And of course, I won't force anyone to watch it

question is this still a BETA?
because there is some areas like the 2nd IWBTG screen that said "WTF how'd you get here!!??!?"
and on the first screen to the left path there was a spike that flew down while making a path downward and then I die by going down anyway.

gd game BTW im upto 7 secret items so far.
Title: Re: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL
Post by: Jeed-Unit on March 16, 2010, 02:02:28 pm
nah I think pretty much everything is functional except the second IWBTG room(if that wasn't intentional  ???) but there are sure a few things that are there to trick you ;)

And it's really funny to see that everyone are able to get to the wtf room :P
Title: Re: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL
Post by: Elmo3000 on March 16, 2010, 02:10:31 pm
I've gotten 8 items, although none of them are still showing up in the treasure room for some reason.   ??? A lot more likely to be my crappy computer than the actual game though.

I tried time attack and had 11 minutes left after getting to the lift of 3 keys (Didn't die at all during the IWBTG-Portal-Bubble Bobble bit, and didn't die at any of the bosses. I'm not awesome at it, but I'm not rubbish either. Anyway, when I got to the 3 key lift, I was stuck. Every time I've tried it in normal gameplay, I always get to the top, fall, wait for the second set of lifts, then catch them. Wait for the third set, etc, lather rinse repeat... However, this only works if I reload it from the savepoint beforehand. Otherwise, only 1 set of lifts appears after the first bunch disappear, and I can't make it to the castle.  :( 11 whole minutes...

Other people have mentioned beating Time Attack though, so I'm guessing this is... likely my crappy computer again. Dangit!

Oh, and Trial 5 isn't THAT hard  :P
Title: Re: I wanna be the Fangame! FINAL

EDIT: Also, I got to the trials on my second file, but number five seems impossible. How do you complete it? I know how to start, but the spike fall seems impossible... Well, I got past that, but still haven't beaten it.

Whats the deal with that spike that creates a passage way that kills you in the room with that...err...shadowy dude that smashes the ground to send you flying up?

Seriously, is there anything hidden down in there? Or does it just always kill you? Its REALLY retarded how many bottomless pits kill you when common game logic says thats where a hidden passage is! There is another spot like this right before that bat battle, after you step on a block to rise up, I figured, ah! theres a hole there, that must be where an item is located (so I hopped in, and BAM, dead).

And then the spots on the way to that missile secret item, where you HAVE to stand in what looks like a bottomless pit, to avoid that giant tank...seriously, you can't figure some of these things out with common sense!

I'm only missing 3 items now, some blue thing, and those 2 feathers, and in terms of where to look, I've got nothing else to go on now. -_-;

I haven't found any "WTF rooms" or other things like that.
I just made it to "Sticky Keys" and I am really close to beating it.

Somehow I didn't go through the DK area (I think it's called), so I wasn't able to get a few items.

EDIT: Okay, one last time. I finally beat trial five. Now I shall immortalize my surprisingly fun run of it in video. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQu3bWx9bSc

EDIT 2: Found a major glitch. You can skip Stickeykeys completely if you're quick enough by going through the entrance to his fight and then exiting before the spikes come in.

EDIT 3: Oh yes, finally beat it! Now to find those missing four items...

Oh, and also, when I beat it, I noticed it said Scary Hand from Eversion had been in the game. I didn't see one, so is that in the secret I haven't found?

EDIT 4: Also, I FINALLY figure dout the dang "1 2 3 4" part. And then I find out

Nope.  Three starting paths, devil boss, and Sticky Keys.  There are two secret bosses that I've found, so that makes seven bosses altogether.

The "1234" area has nothing to do with donkey kong.. the music is from ape escape. The tiles are a mixture from destruction II and IWBTG. The chase at the end everything is from WBIII.

Go to the bomberman area and go into the part where the stop sign shoots at you. Go back out once the spike flies up, go into the new area you can reach, jump on the invisible block, then onto the next one, then into the shaking part.


Also, for the 1234 part, here's a hint-

the 1 2 3 and 4 have absolutely nothing to do with getting past it. And the spikes ont op of two of the blocks in the second screen fly up.

Yeah, in that boss you can also die after killing him and you'll go to the next room anyway. I coded it that way coz that's how it was with mecha-birdo.

@Flairina: Coz people rebind their controls I made it so you have to press your shoot key to everse, not X. It was a little too obscure, especially for those people who haven't played Eversion :P

 Weird, I thought the secret you were talking about there was the Mecha Spaghettio thingy at the end of the hall of bats. So If its in there, then the only secrets on the left path are the green potion and the trials right?

Post by: flairina on March 20, 2010, 07:56:49 am
yeah, about 80% done in 40 minutes, that's good  :D
Thanks!
I forgot to mention that I beat the devil boss, but he takes a while to die, so I ran out of time.
I was screaming so hard lol.
Then, it teleported me to the next screen with six minutes left.
I lol'd so fucking hard.

Yeah, in that boss you can also die after killing him and you'll go to the next room anyway. I coded it that way coz that's how it was with mecha-birdo.

@Flairina: Coz people rebind their controls I made it so you have to press your shoot key to everse, not X. It was a little too obscure, especially for those people who haven't played Eversion :P

Ah, so eversing IS part of how to get there! Haha! :D

So I seem to have a messed up save. I saved my game in the Mario level, got killed by the piranha plant, and then I start on the title screen. If I choose to continue my game I fall from the top of the title screen and die. I have no idea what's going on. The other save file works fine.

Fuck, that's what happened to me too.
Do you think someone can give me a save? I was right before the pacman part.

I just went through it, found no eversion area unfortunately and just found the mecha spahgettio thingy like I knew I would.
You must have hidden it pretty well because I thoroughly searched every nook and cranny after the reaper and found nothing but more impalement on spikes.

Tijit said that you have to "press z to everse" somewhat like the real eversion. I'm currently looking for it.

Post by: Herasy on March 20, 2010, 11:50:55 am
Is there any actual indication of the everse spot? I was spamming z constantly after beating the reaper and found absolutely nothing. Does the background change or blur in a certain spot or something?

I was thinking that you go to the second pounding screen and go up instead of down to the right.
Let me know if that works.

No good. I tried that long ago.
