I Wanna Be The Retro: I ~ *Cancelled*
: show
Ok, For those who don't know, I wanna be the retro is being remastered. I know, I know, The first version was boring and dull. Since january, We've been editing every level into something else. Something different.
Our goal is to make I wanna be the retro up with the I wanna be the game charts, With games such as: I wanna be the tribute,Fangame,Ultimatum,GB and of course, The first, Guy.

The game includes a various collection of 16-bit music that some of you may recognize, I am after all A Sonic fangirl;
Don't worry, I wont brutally murder you if you love mario or if you hate sonic but With this I owned a genisis with a ton of classical music. Some are very amazing and some are just epic. I will hopefully soon post up a playlist on youtube of the new songs in the remastered versions as soon as I get round to it.

Post by: Elmo3000 on December 25, 2009, 08:29:23 pm
I played lots and lots and lots and got to the end.

The Pokemon Area at night and the Marble Zone beginning are both really, really hard. The Pokemon Area at night is hard because of the beginning with all those lifts, and Marble Zone is hard because there are about 25 different traps you have to memorize before you get to the next savepoint (Although I was only playing on the second-easiest difficulty)

The bosses were fun, the 2nd boss was by far the best. You've nailed the majority of level design and music programming, so kudos on that. I have one problem, since I defeated the boss and got to the end of the beta, but before boss 3, there's an alternate path to another teleporter. I figured it was the main path, so I thought I'd investigate it after checking out the side-path, which turned out to be... the main path, and now I can't get back. So, now that I can't go back... did I miss much? Is there much over there? I really don't wanna spend another 2 hours replaying to get to that point again and find out...

Overall though, this is good. I liked the Bioshock/Zelda area, although some areas were a tad unclear. I wouldn't have known the first area was the Metroid Lab if you hadn't named it that. But still, this looks like with some polishing it could rank up with I Wanna Be The Ultimatum and I Wanna Be The Tribute.

Every thing's good except for the collision box for your character. It's a bit too large, the kid will face death if the first pixel of his foot is touching a spike. You should make it just a bit smaller. I can't give you a truly honest review about gameplay because these godforsaken GM apps bog my computer down for some reason unknown. Sorry:(

And this isn't a question about just your game, but how come the death splatter in all of these fangames just stays in a straight line on the ground, instead of really, well, 'Splattering' in a fan pattern like IWBTG across the ground? I was just wondering. No offense.

That is one of the secret items in the game but the one in metriod, is as you can see the least hidden. lol  ;D

Don't use to much sonic tracks. And why did you put Fallout music for bioshock?
Other then that, your down;load link doesn't work.

here are 3 answers and explanations to your question
1.bioshock didn't have any music for the tittle
2.I expired the old download and putting in a new one soon  ;D
3.Who cares that some tracks are sonic? it's still goddamn music isn't it?

If you're really stuck, you could always edit your savefile to get past it. It's plaintext and the coordinates are in pixels, which you can find by taking a screenshot.

Yeah, I know, but i'd really like to know if there's a way to pass that trap without cheating...
I'll cheat if I discover the solution is just having perfect timing to avoid triggering that trap.

OK passed it without cheating !
I was just doing it the wrong way (trying to go up before the spikes hit me, but this is impossible)

Cheated just before the last Hard save (those perfect jumps were really pissing me), i'm now at Blanqland (passed about 4 screens)



EDIT : Yeah, beat it ! Awesome game, i loved it ! Just something that bothers me : i was playing on Hard, but my save says the last room is called whg01med, so i guess some teleporter in Hard leads to a Medium room... If that can help, i got "wuss" saves in the IWBTG section, so the bug must have occured before this section... unless i edited the difficulty in my save and don't remember it.

Btw, can you update your 1st post listing the music used ? I'm too lazy to search them  :P

This game is amazing, but I would really like it if you got rid of the alternate paths.  They get really confusing and I never know which way is the intended way to go.
Title: Re: I wanna be the retro! *FINAL BETA (WORLDS HARDEST GAME STAGE ADDED)
Post by: Storyyeller on January 10, 2010, 09:47:32 pm
I think that right now, the Metroid Labs area is too bland.

Basically the entire area is just spike corridors. You should either make it shorter or throw in some other stuff to break up the monotony.
I got so fed up that I just cheated through more then half of it.

This game is amazing, but I would really like it if you got rid of the alternate paths.  They get really confusing and I never know which way is the intended way to go.

Basically, if you go one way and don't see any save point, that's a side path.
EDIT : Except the Marble Zone side path, where you will see a save after going into the teleporter (the side path).

That much I know, but where do they take you?  Is it just a path to avoid the boss?

Post by: jbaptistec on January 11, 2010, 02:13:05 am
No, each sub-path leads to a more or less secret item, like the donut in Metroid labs.
You will have to take he main path anyway.

However, you should try to get the items (even if they're useless), because some paths are quite interesting.

=suggestions=

1. put the aplication into its own folder if it isn't already
2. redownload the whole thing again
3. either your computer is old or you need a bigger graphics card but im not too sure  :-\
4. check your computer to see if it is got enough space/memory to play the game itself

=new stuff=

Post by: Zero_Destroyer on January 14, 2010, 04:41:48 pm
I couldn't load the newest version, so I played the first beta. It works perfectly. Oddly, the only 2 fangames I've downloaded that didn't work were this and Ultimatum, but IWBTU had many complaints about not working.

Please tell me you shortened metroid labs in the newest version or you will in the newer versions. I quit at them in

: show
in the room where there are 2 moving platforms. One you ride down (I presume they might be two connected) and 1 you had to ride into a next room, where you have to jump off the platform then jump back on to avoid spike. It's way to repetitive. Shorten this area, for the love of god. Or at least add something interesting, my only complaint is how damned boring it is. Though, when I got to the bottom of that trick room, and the next room I entered was full of spikes, and I realized that the wall on the top right was fake, I lol'd my ass off, I'll admit. Good job there. Regardless, this is only my opinion on the first beta, could you tell me any changes made from it and the newest version? The newest version won't run even if I throw it into it's own folder, i'll try re-downloading. it. My comp. has plenty of space, and I doubt it's that old and the graphics card is that small, since every other fangame (excluding Ultimatum) works fine.

Right, so after playing a bit further into the Beta and watching Yosnipe's vids on this, and reading your comment to dcx666...

This game needs variety. It's all spikes. That's almost ALL this is, with the occasional pit or badly placed moving platform. From what I've played and watched so far...

: show
Bioshock area is by far the most entertaining and creative area. Lost Island would be fine, but Metroid Labs and Pokemon Forest are the same as Lost Island: Make Labs more unique and completely remake Pokemon Forest Nighttime. Forest outright sucks, and I'm just looking at it.

You need variety EARLY in the game, and Bioshock is pretty far. I'm not hating on your game, the areas are beautifully made, but cut down on next-to-impossible difficulty and spikes. Or, make the hellish difficulty due to something OTHER than spikes ad severe lack of saves for multiple rooms. At least IWBTG and IWBTFG are difficult, but FUN At the same time. This isn't fun, and I don't want to have to go through Lost Island just to get to the badass and cool Bioshock area.

Most of the game reminds me of Ghosts and Goblins area, and unless you are a sadomasochistic maniac, that's not the best course of action for a fangame.

Are there any traps at all in the Zelda area?

Post by: Zero_Destroyer on January 19, 2010, 04:01:21 am
Compliments and complaints are one of the biggest points of releasing a Beta, so I'll happily do both. If you simply release a game without knowing any compliments or complaints, then you won't know what to fix, and ignoring fans/people who think a game could be good/better is a hilariously stupid move.

I must say, I like Zelda area, World's hardest game area, Marble Zone, and whatever the area you fall down then outrun the Lava is. All of those I like. Zelda needs a couple of traps, IMO.  Marble Zone is quite ridiculous with that 14 traps between saves on hard mode, and needs to be toned down, or a save needs to be added.

I thought Arcadopolis might be interesting, but I think it was completely dickish and a bit to much like Lost Island.

Blanqland = Arcadopolis with different Music/background. Exact same style of level. Disappointed beyond belief at that, too. Just alter the background of blanqland to be Arcadopolis' or alter Blanqland altogether, it could be badass.


Pokemon, Lost Island, and Metroid....

Metroid Labs needs less spiking and more traps. It's boring.

Pokemon needs to be completely changed, the difficulty is downright overboard even for this game, and it's harder than anything else in the game. The distinct save lacking needs fixing. It's 10x worse than G&G. Sorry, but it just sucks with the lack of creativity. In fact, it hardly reminds me of pokemon. Add more references/mini-boss that is a pokemon.

Lost Island would be awesome if Pokemon/Labs/Arcadopolis/Blanqland weren't all the same thing: Spikery of the highest order.



Seriously, the biggest problem is WAAAYYY to much effort put on spike corridors, invisible blocks, and pitfalls. You have a damn good idea of what to throw in there, but stuff needs changing.

IWBTG Area is easy but interesting.

Please, for the love of god, get rid of the flashiness of Level 8. It hurts my eyes. I like the area otherwise, though.

The new area looks good, I'd like to know what it's from.

Also, question, what game did Lost Island and Blanqland come from?


Not hating your game, just giving out a few pointers that might make the game better: It's dumb to put the best parts AFTER all the hellishly difficult areas, and you SHOULD NEVER, EVER have to modify your save file just to get to the better parts.

hmm can't be certain I can do it but I will see what I can do.

as for Isolated island - its from choatix
and blanqland - is from an untitled story made by matt thorson
the new area is from sonic advance III

As for adding saves...  yes I will add some  ;D

Hmm. It seems that when I download the final beta version, it loads the "Created with Game Maker" screen at the top left of my screen, but then it ends up giving me a "Unexpected error occured when running the game." message.

Downloading the other link and I'll see what happens.
EDIT: The first link runs fine.

EDIT2: WTF?!?! I started the game up again today, and now it won't let me go back to where I saved last. I keep hitting the R button, but it still goes back to the title screen. >:(

This game gets worse and worse as it goes on.
It starts off extremely fun, but when you get closer to the end, it's pretty much entirely:
"HEY GUYS LOOK!  SPIKES EVERYWHERE!  I DON'T CARE ABOUT HAVING A FUN GAME; THE POINT IS TO MAKE PEOPLE PLAYING IT KILL THEMSELVES!"

The entire point of IWBTG is that it's hard, but fun so you want to keep playing.
This game made me want to rage-quit after about 10 minutes.
"I Wanna Be The Fangame", "I Wanna Be The Tribute", and "I Wanna Be The Ultimatum" (mostly) captured this aspect very well.
Look to those games for a little advice.
However, the music rocks like everyone was saying.

Don't make the secret items at a separate path because then you might go to the correct path when trying to get the secret items.
If you're going to do this, add a sign or something telling you that there is a secret item or something.

Three reasons why I haven't been able to beat the beta: : Lag that literally breaks down my computer, controls that can't be changed, and we can't go back to the menu to go on an easier difficulty.
Fix, and the game will be perfect. What I've played is as difficult and frustrating as it is fun.

were both very to get this boss underway soon.

Why do you have manic as a boss? Just asking?\.

the idea hit me when someone mentioning da kid being a manic fantic.

so I thought that would be awsome if I made manic be a boss =P

It's a great idea. Anyone who hated Da Kid can now destroy that fucking hedgehog.

It's pretty obvious.

But why bother translating it anyway? You'd have to read the English part to know the translated part is farther down. Besides, anyone could run it through an online translator themselves.

Why thanks Jman, You know, this really means a lot to me as I has almost always been a fan of your walkthroughs.
I used to be a big fan of the king of LPs himself, cloud8745 but sadly he is gone now and I always thought you where the 2nd best before cloud left but now you're my favroite! ;]

I also see you're almost finished with fangame, So gd luck with that one.

Oh back on topic, I am uploading the new version as we speak, YES you didn't see me wrong,
I am uploading the new version as we speak.

EDIT: download the game here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?knzk2nndbym

notes - this new version is quite a big file and takes at least 5GB to work.
now the load time and performance of the game depends on the performance of your computer (i.e) Your computer is shit then the game will take about 10 minutes to load and will be a little bit laggy in some parts but otherwise still ok but if your computer is at a great speed (mac) then it should take no longer than 2-5 minutes to load and will hardly be as laggy as a shitty computer such as mine.

Now some other notes in the mere future:

.YES A CONTROLS FILE IS ON ITS WAY!
.the beta ends at the
: show
Stepmania boss

.there is some empty screens which will be complete in the actual full game
.you can only play on medium sadly in this version though you can edit your save0 file in notepad and change the global.difficulty= to this:
0-medium
1-hard
2-vhard
3-impossible
.Press ctrl + m to stop the music
.N'joy!

I'm loving the game so far, I was playing the beta you had up 2-3 days ago until you released this. Can you add a close button or make the escape button act as one? It's annoying to close the game from the task manager.

The game is only 50 megabyte, not 5 gigabyte. She said that it needs at least 5GB to work, she never said that the file size is 5GB.

Im stuck at the third screen where the lights turn off and on :S I don't know where to go!

This is where I am exactly stuck at:
: show
(http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/4166/iwbtr2.png)


If i go down and jump on the left, the lights will switch on by themselves and I'll fall and die.
I'm loving the game so far, I was playing the beta you had up 2-3 days ago until you released this. Can you add a close button or make the escape button act as one? It's annoying to close the game from the task manager.

Okay, im not really sure why people really get stuck on this screen but then again it is a puzzle so here is the solution.
: show
(http://img815.imageshack.us/img815/6780/thiso.png)


the blue X's stand for the warps between off and on and the arrows indicate the correct way to go.
AND if this still doesn't help just watch this.

and for the closing the game thing;
just hold alt+F4 .

Oh and as for storyyeller, We would Never release a 5GB file, Besides, I doubt that there even is a website that even once upgraded to pro such as mediafire would allow a 5GB file to be uploaded.

Oh and another thing. On that screen when the lights are switched off for the first time, the game will freeze and the first screen with the lights switched off will appear for 1-2 seconds and then the game will unfreeze. I'm sure you have noticed it but just wanted to be sure. Not something that ruins the gameplay or something

Just like I said before, The games performance depends on your CPU storage space and the standard of your computer.
Sometimes this happens and sometimes it doesn't on my computer but even if I really seriously wanted to fix it I wouldn't as there is some things you just cannot fix, Even in game maker such as loading time and this little glitch.

Now, If you guys don't mind im gonna play GTA IV while you do whatev's to the game or comment on here and of course as always, I will help yawl if you're stuck on a screen.

Yes but people like to fuck about with the files and it also can make the download speed slower. And It also requires the player to have ZIP which some people don't.

They could use 7zip which is free and small in size. Also, as far as i am concerned, Windows have a pre-installed zip extracting software.

I hated the first version of this game with the ungodly amount of spikes, so I was looking forward to the redux.
However, I'm now on the SEGA boss and I'm sorry to say, this game is horrible.
The SEGA boss isn't hard; it just takes forever and I stop caring.
Also, when you reach a new "form" of the boss, it should have different patterns rather than repeating the same pattern a bit faster.
Adding a different colored glow is not a good way to show you're on a new form.
Most of the backgrounds in this game are EYE RAPE.
YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE'S EYES TO HURT WHILE PLAYING YOUR GAME.
There aren't many more traps than the previous version also.
You kept saying there would be a lot more traps, but it's still pretty much pixel-perfect jumping to avoid spikes.
The "You just got pwned by Meatwad lol" was completely stupid and too easy to dodge.
A lot of parts in your game rely on invisible blocks, too.
Invisible block sections ARE NOT FUN.
In one part of the Marble Zone level, you used the exact same trap 3 times in a row where you had to land 1 block above a pillar.
This is not hard to do at all.
One screen completely ripped off the first screen of the mouse section in IWBTU, but you made invisible blocks for getting across.
Another part I hate is the secret areas.
I realize that you don't want any saves within the areas to make them harder, but not many people would actually care enough to get them.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO ADD SECRET ITEMS, MAKE IT SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET THEM.
I know you haven't made it so you can grab the secret items yet, but you should block the secret path to avoid people getting it and dying.
A major plus with the game is the tiles.
I love the way the blocks look.
They have an obvious theme and are very high quality.
I also like the sunglasses; not recoloring The Kid's sprites was a good idea.

That's it for now.
If I think of anything else while I'm playing, I'll tell you.
I'm sorry that this may seem very harsh, but there are a lot of problems with the game.
I would gladly help you make this game a lot better.

*EDIT* The start screen also looks good.
I forgot to mention that.

1. okay, I admit the sega boss was a bit rushed, in fact the whole ends of the beta kinda got a bit rushed due to the amount of people asking me on youtube and on msn about having another beta so some places are a little bit "meh".
these hopefully will be updated in either the final or next possible version.

2. what do you mean by eye rape? most backgrounds look fine to me,  in fact almost harmless,  except possibly in the iwbtu area which really isn't meant to hurt your eyes but to confuse you.

3 dude, have you even fully played the game?
because if so then you would know that there are some puzzles that you haven't mentioned.
Some screens are unfinished so there is a possibility that some screens are kinda like the first version but will be fixed  but, hey, doesn't every I wanna be the game have flying spikes at some point in the game?

4. Well not to be rude but, screw you if you don't like the traps, that meatwad sprite was very hard to put together just like the trap itself.

5. ffs man, at least in my game its not EVERY SINGLE screen of invisible blocks, about 3 screens that have major invisible block mazes.

6. Big deal if it is too hard or too easy, if you have seen sicrow's old iwbtr videos then you should know that he said: "its your game, who cares if it too hard or not?".
And I am intending to stick with this quote, if you're looking for difficulty, go play I wanna be the GB.

7. Well the secret items are Optional and if you read my other post which I doubt you have otherwise you would't post this;
ok, so I will give a possible new feature in the next beta.
: show
Hopefully the next beta should have a working cheating system, The secret items reveal the secret codes to enter and there are so far about 20-30 cheats in the entire game but I make no promises though.


So I say if you really wanna go for a secret item whether it kills or not, then go for it otherwise, Its a optional part of the game which shouldn't really be complained about, especially in a beta version of a game.

8. Thanks! We specialize our tiles for a website that we don't wanna share at the moment.

9. Yeah,  We wanted to give the kid a new gun and a bit of a tan both skin and costume wise if you look closely and compare the old with this one.

10. Its ok, I see why you may hate some parts but sometimes it makes me think "why am I reading a hardly constructive criticism comment by either something that I already mentioned earlier  or something silly like; this trap seems kinda stupid." I mean hell, What do you expect me to do on that?
and this just doesn't go out to "Wolsk" but almost the whole forum, In fact,  Anyone who just posts a non-constructive criticism like for e.g "This bit is TOO hard" or "The game is TOO long" or "the music for this area seems kinda gay, CHANGE IT!" then I will just say "FFS post something that we all give a shit about and that is serious", I mean who cares if a certain area in the game doesn't have your favorite taste of music or level design or whatever.
Not to be rude or anything, but now its really starting to piss me off.
ANYWAYS, thank you "Wolsk" I accept Most of your criticism.

1. That's good.

2. I'll take some screenshots of backgrounds that hurt MY eyes.
I don't know if everyone else agrees, but I figured I'd just tell you about it.

3. No, I haven't finished the game.
I said I was on the SEGA boss.

4. I just said I don't like it.
You don't have to change it if you don't want to.

5. I know.
I just almost never like invisible blocks.
If you want to keep it in, again that's your choice; it was just my opinion.

6. There is a difference between extremely hard and fun and just hard.
The point of IWBTG fangames is to be hard, and yet fun enough that you keep playing it.

7. I actually did read that post, and allowing you to cheat the game is a little strange for a reward.
I don't exactly know what cheats there will be, but if they let you cheat the game TOO much, such as invincibility, it messes up the gameplay.

10. I can give you examples of places where you can put traps if you want.
I wasn't trying to sound vague.
I was trying to be helpful.

2. Okay, I will see what I can do when you show what backgrounds are hurtful.

3. Either still, Their is still a few puzzles before the sega boss.

4. Sorry, Guess I overreacted.
 
5. Okay.

6. lol, When sicrow streamed the new version, He thought it was the hardest game so far or at least upto GB.
I was wanting to make it easier but now I guess I will have to make it harder.

7. I never said anything about an invincibility cheat, the only cheats type are:

.Music off
.Level select
.Sound test room

but none that will effect the gameplay.

10. Yeah I know, Its just that I Hate non-constructive criticism, It drives me batshit.

The entire top right screen is painful to look at.
Also, making a corner tile for the tubes would be good.

I didn't take a picture, but the World's Hardest Game section is painful to look at also.
Especially the orange screen.
Please don't have the colors on top of the screen in that section.

hmm.. the top right seems the most harmful but the rest look fine to me.
though I must say that this game isn't advised for people for weak eyes anyway.
and im changing the worlds hardest game area again, only the ending backgrounds though.

I've played through the 3rd beta of this game and there was definetly a lot of promise there, really fun and challenging =)
and now seeing some of the screenshots aswell as videos on youtube the final version of this game looks amazing, improvements in graphics, innovation with regards to traps, variety in area design, seriously can't wait to play the finished version XD

Why thanks "Cincinnatikid", It's people like you who really inept us or make us more convinced into making I wanna be the retro even more greater than it is and also now we are planning to add anyones name who has played I wanna be the retro from this forum and has posted there feelings (both good nor bad) about the game.
(if we have time to that is)

Its an honor to hear your kind remarks =) Im a retro gamer through and through and IWBTR was really nostalgic, despite spoilers I did watch TheCandos's playthrough of the game and its always inspirational to see how much people improve and the final version of IWBTR has truly got me on the edge of my seat waiting for the final version, which as of late is only something indie games have been able to inspire, Ill definetly check out your Fb page, if you get chance Id really appreciate the heads up when the final version of this awesome game is released~

Respect~ Cincinnatid X)

In reguards to the PM id really appreciate that =) pretty damn excited to be fair about playing the final version, hrm critique, well I'll do my best =3

Having only played the 3rd Beta up until the evil DEMO trap in the hardest game area, I suppose my input is a limited, Ive played a good fair few IWBTG replicas and there is a lot of cookie cutting if you know what I mean, a lack of innovation in a lot of games but thats gonna be expected from fan culture, HOWEVER IWBTR despite IMO relying a lot on simple obstacles still added spice to the whole concept especially with its variety in area design, which kept me happy and did give a sense originality, I would of said add more imaginative traps but watching the vids of the final version you two seem to have already clicked on, lights out! invisible hero! PIKACHU! oranges of doom! hope Im not spoiling too much here but everything seems ace, erm I did find the secret items a lil confusing seeing as they killed you which really kinda took away the sense of reward of getting the damn things but perhap your going somewhere unique with that? I loved the optical illusion area perhaps maybe you could make the car journey screens a lil longer? Really cool idea but could be streched out a lil~

I dont think theres many negatives with IWBTR, I was generally impressed, so I gotta try hard to give advice but I know how value it is =P but I genuinely think you two are on the right track with this game, it has variety, innovation, challenge, personality for sure! and overall its damn fun to play  =3 maybe you could add a few more bossess? but even so its not vital for the feel of IWBTR as I experienced it, few and far between worked fine for me, but might add a greater sense of completion? Perhaps just an idea have a screen with some of your funky quotes near the beggining to give a sense of introdution to the game? =) just thinking as you show it later with Manics provocative quotes, if it was shown in the beggining might give better sense of structure, as I said this is all small ideas as the game IMO is really well made as it is =)

whoa, whoa, whoa, Hold up now.
What makes you think that my partner is some sort of a low-life troll?
He hasn't broken any of the rules (so far) and he isn't a threat to anyone.
his name is Lesker and he is not a evil bastard. He helps me on some codes and publishes the game for me but if he is he sure doesn't really bother me to say he is a troll, In fact he is quite nice to me plus his grammar is okay, Which is not the levels of a troll.

so to me it sounds like he isn't a troll but I will ask him tonight online.
And if he is who you say he is then he is off the team, Sadly.
but if it comes to this then possible new updates/versions will be slowed down. So whats the point of getting rid of your bread and butter, right?

only one problem, I have not seen him online a over a day so im at a loss for words on that one.

So, I really don't feel like asking him but its the right thing to do and I fore one do not appreciate an appearance of a  troll in the team.  :-\

Also, If he is him, I will also need a new partner if anyone is interested. (Another thing I don't wanna do)
So, you guys can say he is but it doesn't make it true.
And this is what I mean by "judging", "Urghmm.. he has a username of someone we hate- OBVIOUS TROLL so lets blame his partner into all of this-LIKE I GIVE A FLYING FUCK"

is he breaking any rules? - NO
is he a troll? - NO
is his grammar shit? - NO
do I care IF he is? - NO

You people should stop judging and start worrying about your own education or careers or even making friends.

now enough talk about this shit behind my partners back, k?
btw im way past a chill pill right now. some of you people on this forum disgust me.

Very fucking funny. Now, I know who I work with and trust me, Who I work with is no 9 year old kid.
Hell, Isn't it obvious? Why would a stupid slob of a child would be bothered know how to or even care to make a game with me?
AND, how the fuck would he make a account on a website that he is banned on?

Now, IF you've stopped judging the makers then I have a game to make.

and we are always looking for some advice so, What would you say that could be better about the game?

Can you please make the savepoints a color that doesn't clash so much? Bright green and purple just looks bad.

For the 4th time, YES we will be changing the tiles for the saves.

Now now, don't get mad, take you pills, don't get all ANGRY. DRR DRR DRR
Does that mean that Spikey is ManicDaKid888?
whoa, whoa, whoa, Hold up now.
What makes you think that my partner is some sort of a low-life troll?
He hasn't broken any of the rules (so far) and he isn't a threat to anyone.
his name is Lesker and he is not a evil bastard. He helps me on some codes and publishes the game for me but if he is he sure doesn't really bother me to say he is a troll, In fact he is quite nice to me plus his grammar is okay, Which is not the levels of a troll.

so to me it sounds like he isn't a troll but I will ask him tonight online.
And if he is who you say he is then he is off the team, Sadly.
but if it comes to this then possible new updates/versions will be slowed down. So whats the point of getting rid of your bread and butter, right?

only one problem, I have not seen him online a over a day so im at a loss for words on that one.

So, I really don't feel like asking him but its the right thing to do and I fore one do not appreciate an appearance of a  troll in the team.  :-\

Also, If he is him, I will also need a new partner if anyone is interested. (Another thing I don't wanna do)
So, you guys can say he is but it doesn't make it true.
And this is what I mean by "judging", "Urghmm.. he has a username of someone we hate- OBVIOUS TROLL so lets blame his partner into all of this-LIKE I GIVE A FLYING FUCK"

is he breaking any rules? - NO
is he a troll? - NO
is his grammar shit? - NO
do I care IF he is? - NO

You people should stop judging and start worrying about your own education or careers or even making friends.

now enough talk about this shit behind my partners back, k?
btw im way past a chill pill right now. some of you people on this forum disgust me.

Oh man, that's cool.
It's not like I gave a shit if he was.
And plus, do what you want, for I don't give a shit. Continue on your game, live your life. Take pills, resolve your problems.

even though it sounds like a lot, Some aren't secret about 2,3 of them maybe but there is one secret item which is a achievement for being on a harder mode.

but guaranteed the rest ARE secrets.

So, Technicaly there are about 17 secrets items that are secrets if you get what I mean.
And another addition I added was a pause button. =P

What? No, this is pokemon.
besides, I Don't remember Ultimatum having mt.moon as a level, it was pokemon tower.
Even if there is somehow a mt.moon level in ultimatum, Then I am not changing, This secret item took me 3 hours to make. 2 hours on the secret itself and the other hour on the graphics. I repeat, I AM NOT changing.

i wasn't going to tell you to change it or similar, and i just say it was like IWBTU because its pokemon, i can guess its a maze of teleporters (like in pokemon tower) and its black and white, dont get me wrong, i was just saying

So does, Pickory, although in that case it's only a minor secret area.


The thing is that if you are doing a popular game, it's almost certainly been done by others. That doesn't matter though as long as your version has its own design. As long as it's not a direct copy of an existing fangame, you should be fine.

.At least 12 secret items
.A starting logo

.pressing "P" pauses the game.
.pressing "ctrl+M" mutes the game.

.Edited mask for the kid
.New save sprite

I don't wanna spoil everything new in the game so I will let the rest for yaw'll to find out when the new beta is up in about a week or so.

As for the bosses, I will be updating them in another version but yes they will be updated in either the one after the next version or the final version.

Sicrow7 and zeromegamanx are epic btw I recommend subscribing to them on youtube.  :P

Since I love you all I figure you want something else than just a cheap text update and taking all of this for just my word so, Take everything till you hear everything with a grain of rice, huh?

Screenshots that do include "!!! 1 !!!" secret item so be warned. (yeah, this is the other secret item and the only other secret item I am going to show, The rest are for you to find out.)

Its official, There will be a new remastered version either next week or on Sunday.
it will include:

.At least 12 secret items
.A starting logo
.Sound test
.Some minor and Major patches
.New screens
.New tiles for some areas
.pressing "P" pauses the game.
.pressing "ctrl+M" mutes the game.
.pressing enter skips the starting logo screen
.some patched HD music
.New title screen music
.Edited mask for the kid
.New save sprite

I don't wanna spoil everything new in the game so I will let the rest for yaw'll to find out when the new beta is up in about a week or so.

As for the bosses, I will be updating them in another version but yes they will be updated in either the one after the next version or the final version.

Sicrow7 and rawrzaur are epic btw I recommend subscribing to them on youtube.  :P

Since I love you all I figure you want something else than just a cheap text update and taking all of this for just my word so, Take everything till you hear everything with a grain of rice, huh?

Screenshots that do include "!!! 1 !!!" secret item so be warned. (yeah, this is the other secret item and the only other secret item I am going to show, The rest are for you to find out.)

na, Sonic CD's music in my opinion is "meh" its about a 5/10 for the music but its a good game.
but 16-bit genisis music and 8-bit game gear music is retro general theme with music, you'd rarely find another type of music in retro other than OCremix or Andy mackee's "All laid back" song in level 3; The rest are from columns, Star fighers, Rave brothers and a whole lot more games that hardly anyone knows about, yet has some of thee most epic music you might possibly hear from any genisis game. (or game gear game for that matter)

I'm only a little ways in(Not sure how far lulz) and what I will tell you all is the absolute truth GO PLAY THIS GAME NAO! Whoever says this is all spikes or if you still have those preconcieved notions throw them out the window and break a car with them for this is not the same at all. The originality in this game surpasses I'd like to say 90% of the fangames on this forum it's one of the rare hidden gems. It is an insanely epic game that everyone will enjoy. It's well thought out it's well-designed. Go play it :D.

Well, Even though I appreciate the heads-up, I Must say that the game isn't a gem just yet. Maybe a unfinished gem to some people but now that I see it, retro is a fangame that people love or hate if you understand where im going with this lil' rant.

I know it's not the best fangame (or freeware for that matter) out there, but, I must say that it is most definably  not the worst; I am talking about those games that are the ones with the same tiles and same music constantly throughout the entire game.

Indeed you are correct about almost 90%+ Of fangames on this forum are made by people who don't put hardly any effort into their game and it takes almost 1-2 days to make and then be announced by bad grammar-ed people saying the download link and hardly any information about it.

Great games are in my opinion are games that have the following:


If all these are in the game then you've got yourself a gem of a fangame.
btw as for the bosses.

We will be getting round to remastering them too.

Ok, so a few things I've noticed:

1) The secretthirteen item (in the room full of spikes and the platforms that go up and down,) it is hard enough to obtain the item, but because you have to save at a save point to make it permanent, that room is just f**king impossible. I recommend putting a warp by the item.

2) The "Unreal Monopoly" place seems unfinished. There is an appearing block in the upper right corner that I can't reach from the next highest block, and there are no other blocks to help me. I don't know if you're supposed to make all the blocks appear before the room lets you out or something.

3) I like the MJ Smooth Criminal music. Definitely keep that in.

Actually, it is possible, I've gotten it, gotten down and saved, but it took me about half an hour. I agree with YoSniper. Put a warp there please?

I got it, too, after about 200 tries, and then the damn health bar killed me. But even if I'd survived that, I would have had to go all the way back through the spikes just to save it.

Also one more thing. When you enter the trophy room (through one of the "exit" doors) there's no way to get out, except hit the R button. You might want to either make that room do something or give us an easy way to get back to the game.

Already fixed.
thx though for bug reporting.
also the monopoly screen is either gonna be a "your-totally-fucked" room or a secret room.

In the World's Hardest Game part, there are several places where you can simply fall past the blue balls if you hug the wall. I know that people are going to tear me a new one for telling you that. Also, the part where you have to trigger the spikes and outrun a wall of blue balls is impossible. You should either make the balls slower or provide a means of dodging it.

2 hours is nothing to some of the other games and if we're talking secrets 2 hours to beat that IWBTFG Blue Potion Secret.

This isn't a secret. It's part of the game you have to get through in order to move on. If it were a secret then I would be aggravated, but I would at least consider it a welcome challenge.

Sicrow7 did that in 5-10 tries, and I know that people are not all like sicrow, so I will try lowering that down a bit.

Is the screen with the forest (?) background and no blocks except for the entrance and the exit
I saw on a walkthru that there are hidden blocks, but when i jump, i keep falling and starting at the save, without losing.
Is incomplete or am i doing something wrong?

So, know what time it is? Yeah, its almost a month until Fallout: New Vegas comes out; I am all over that game when it comes out so this Means I wanna be the retro will halt with progression though I have been working on a new area from white blaster; A very old genisis hack that involves tactics with dodging missiles and turrets. One part of the game even includes a timer section, but, not sure if I should add the timer bit into retro or not.

I'm back yawl'!
Been a while but I finally decided to start working on game maker again after so long playing fallout: New Vegas.
Anyways, expect the last 'Remastered' beta to be out and hopefully then in a few couple of months, the final game itself.

Already been working on a new difficulty select screen which I will show later on.
So far now the game has 6 difficulty's:

.learner - all saves - bow
.student - very common saves - bow
.average - common saves - no bow
.experienced - not-so-many saves - no bow
.master - rarely saves - no bow
.manic - no saves - no bow

So about 70% of the game is completed so far and many months to go until it is otherwise completed.

It's only a minor nitpick, but why aren't the gray circles with the arrows in them symmetrical?

It's only a minor nitpick, but why aren't the gray circles with the arrows in them symmetrical?

just a little effect I tried to make instead of having a thin based looking shape.
Not sure weather it would look better or not but it seems ok to me.

Oh by the way, this is offtopic to storyyellers comment but anyways, The
: show
laser
room is quite annoying, yes it is an replacement to the screen with the green at the bottom.

A lot of these room changes might cause your save0 file to glitch so be warned that the changed rooms WILL do this.
No, I am not adding a encrypt in the files as I don't want people to quit the game just cause it's so hard, for people who know how to cheat and hack the codes then I won't stop yawl.

So cheaters, cheat at own risk.
And if anyone does encounter these glitches but doesn't know how to cheat, then simply send a reply with your save0 attached, I will do the rest, Otherwise, this shouldn't be a problem anyways since most people who love I wanna be the games should know how to cheat already, except the newbies that is. xD

Finally, I am planning to delete the cheat codes in the game and add things called 'perk points' each time you complete a level you gain a point and you spend them at a menu to choose a perk, which basically the way like fallout 3 and fallout: New Vegas works. Perks could be something like "with the hopper perk, your double jump hight is 10% higher then usual" or "the rapid recoil perk allows you to shoot 5 extra bullets and fire 20% faster!". You could also gain these permanent bonuses by gaining secrets or defeating certain bosses or something like that, Making I wanna be the retro like a platforming role play game, which would be quite cool in my opinion since I am a fan or RP games and of course Platforming games, So what the heck, I think it'd be cool, so I'll add it if I can.

I have to say, i wanna be the retro is the best iwbtg fangame in my opinion, considering when i saw the original i was expecting nothing decent. But even though its my favourite, i have a few tiny problems:
: show
The sega boss was repetitive, and the areas after the sega boss were a bit.... spikey...should we say. BUT the boss before the game finished was a extremely clever :D


So GREAT job with I wanna be the retro ^_^

A new level; Vault 70 will be previewed on youtube soon, So expect an upload from me in the mere future.
Yep, We're gonna have vaults in the game too! Filled with all kinds of pre-war Vault-tec traps!

If you would like to request a number for one of the three other vaults then post it in a comment, or PM me or something.

We can't wait to show the new stuff and fallout based traps, but then again, when the previews are up, watch or look at your own risk, spoilers do occur.

This update was brought to you by Vault-tec, Because war.. , war never changes..

Ah cool :) Still doing the fall-out style upgrade system?

yep, perks and traits!

Just for starters, here are the ones that are completed:

Traits:
--------
: show

.The ninja of the night trait makes your maximum jumping height 15% more than usual
.The stockpile trait allows a second hand ammo in your gun! the 12.7mm ammo is 150% more powerful but 40% slower on screen, And you still get your default 9mm


Perks:
---------
: show
.The Hedgehog hater perk makes you do 5% more damage to all hedgehogs, because we all know you hate hedgehogs
.The rapid mag perk adds an additional 2 extra bullets on-screen at once! Handy!
.You're too wussed to care, You suddenly feel the need to go hardcore! The big baby perk instantly changes your difficulty setting to advanced.


well thats about 25% of the perks I've managed to do so far.
Not gonna show the rest until further versions come out for you yourself to explore!

Vaults preview #1

Vault 70 - The Vault of The Sacrifice Chamber

Vault 70 Was a Social experiment to see if the residents would periodically select and kill a fellow Vault dweller to avoid the threat of a total Vault extermination and outer world migration. Each year, The Vault computer informed the residents that one currently living member had to be placed in a special chamber; the 'Sacrificial chamber' where they would be terminated for the good of the Vault. Failure to comply, The computer said, would result in a total and irrevocable shutdown of that of the Vault's life support. The Vault dwellers followed the instructions for decades, Picking victims though various methods, eventually, something changed...

An old Steel Vault door in the middle of nowhere on jade hill, In close proximity to an abandoned garnet factory, greets those lone wanderers who dare to enter this rocky and sandy tomb.
 
Vault 37 - The Atlantic Vault; underwater

After major floods across the North, Vault 37 was soon abandoned for centuries, Not many people know about its ungrateful past in the modern days. The Floods literally made this vault a piece of ancient history waiting to be discovered, though the vault door is sealed and cannot be accessed at all...

or could there be another way in?
Could it really be abandoned?

who knows...

Vault 35 - The home sweet home Vault

Vault 35, the Vault said to be built underneath the guy's fortress and unfortunately, The Current inhabitants of Manic the hedgehog.

are you ready to battle with him?

Even though vault 35 looks small, its' said to hold many secrets in store for anyone willing to find them. A panic room filled with a luxury suite and casino in an old 1000 year old vault? Na, could never happen, right?

Vault 54 - The Chemical death trap
After The Vault-Tec laboratories Finished experimenting with their medical and drug supplies, They decided to store the failed and extremely hazardous chems in the basement, conveniently enough, right next to the Vault's Huge armory. Years have past and the irradiated barrels underground melted the entire vault to an entire new level, A Critical level.

Oh yeah, And the armory still stands, The weapons in there is said to be as good as an orgasmic wonderland.
of course though, this might not be true as its only a legend.

Vault 88 - The unknown heaven
-==Vault Restricted==-




These aren't all the vaults, So I might edit this post soon with more.
I plan to have around 5 to 6 vaults in the game and these are just some of the few so far that I've managed to come up with So as for 'Derp' PM'ing me on how are the vaults doing, well here you go mate. ;-]

I plan to post pictures of the vaults as soon as I test it next.

I'll consider it , but there's two problems with this.

1. - There is no way I can rip the sprites
2. - would be quite a bitch to code, Even for me.

Why, thanks!
We will be updating the game soon though don't worry!
And im also upgrading the stepmania boss too so that once you hit an arrow, you only use it once and the background of it too.

I quite much agree with you though that fangames are getting too melodramatic with difficulty such as I wanna be the boshy and I wanna be the GB and such, doesn't make them bad, just annoying.
Glad to see that Retro isn't one of those too-hardcore games; but the last few levels such as Vault 35 and manic's Palace I intend to be Fucked-in-the-head-hard.

Finally got this to work yesterday! And it's great!

I don't know how far in the game I am (Marble Zone) but it's been fun! The sprites are clean and fit each level like a glove. The music choice is superb (Only because i'm a sonic/sega suck up) and they really fit too. Most of the rooms provided new original traps but some were a bit too spike infested for my liking. I've got most of the secret items i've found so far apart fomr one which I assume is blocked off for a reason.

I wasn't too keen on the first boss I must say. It didn't relly feel a boss , It just felt like a target amongst a room full of spikes. The second was was a tad boring but it was fun ^^

I like the addition of a sound test and I liked the secret item museum (Even if you have to press R to leave). I also like your edited Kid sprites , the sunglasses and sub-machine gun really fit him, sor tof as if he really is the guy now and he's badass.

I'm not to keen on the glow above the lava in the marble zone room , it doens't seem very realistic and it's very square (If you PM me I can show you a better way to do it). I also don't really like the death animation , the pieces go flying to quickly for my liking.

Overall this definately ranks 4# in my fave fangame list and I simply can't wait for the new version!

Finally got this to work yesterday! And it's great!

Yays finally!


I don't know how far in the game I am (Marble Zone) but it's been fun! The sprites are clean and fit each level like a glove. The music choice is superb (Only because i'm a sonic/sega suck up) and they really fit too. Most of the rooms provided new original traps but some were a bit too spike infested for my liking. I've got most of the secret items i've found so far apart fomr one which I assume is blocked off for a reason.

Yeah I Must change a few areas and I must admit myself that my sprite ripping is high quality.

I wasn't too keen on the first boss I must say. It didn't relly feel a boss , It just felt like a target amongst a room full of spikes. The second was was a tad boring but it was fun ^^

Like I said. Bosses will also be changed in later versions; ACCESSIBLY.

I like the addition of a sound test and I liked the secret item museum (Even if you have to press R to leave). I also like your edited Kid sprites , the sunglasses and sub-machine gun really fit him, sor tof as if he really is the guy now and he's badass.


Thanks.  :)

Sorry but I'm not gonna change the death animation though I plan to change the game over screen.
As for the lava effect.. I'm also changing that too.

Cool; Cool.
At least now it works  :D

This screen is a bit glitchy. Also, you should make the method to trigger transitions more obvious. Right now it appears to be pure luck.

Ahh the Garnet Garden area...
So far I changed the 2nd room and planning to change the music to this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOvGftsi4sA&feature=related).
Not sure just yet on if I am actually gonna change it or not.

As for the 3rd room, its supposed to be almost like a puzzle without knowing the rules and mostly like a maze vertex between light and darkness.
Guess I should tune it down a lil', huh? Or maybe even add a few more saves or somethin'.

Hey Mircale , I played through fallout 3 recently. Well most of it. Olney ruins and the vault there is a no no. SO is the one with the fucking supermutants and 3000/ps rads. But I got some ideas for vaults in retro , wanna hear?

Or are you not taking ideas?


Oh and yeah I got the rubber duck in the bioshcok area ;) I also found a bioschock suit late ron in the game but it killed me. Must not be finished.

Vault 92?

Bloody hate that place.
fuck filled with mirelurks is why.

yes mirelurks scare the crap out of me.

Btw yes I am always open for suggestions.

Vault 92's the one in old olney with the soil stratavarius right? You do know you can kill all the mirelurks on the bottom level by activating the white noise right? And yeah I don't like those bastards either. They're easy to kill but really annoying. I can't get into it anyway , I haven't got guns strong enough to kill deathclaws. Vault 87 is the only one I have left but I'll give it a pass for now.

I was thinking , y'know vault 106 in fallout 3? It has purple gas which makes you see your dad. So I'm assuming that gas made you believe your own dreams right? How about a room filled with spikes and traps, then out of nowhere purple gas fills the rooms and the traps and spikes dissapear and things like saves , icecreams and othe rnice things appear around the room but have no interaction with the player.  So the players dream has come true. However since this is all an illusion the sprikes and traps are still there and will kill you :)

yeah I already know about the noise flush and the main reason I hate mirelurks is because of that one stupid V.A.T.S. glitch were a mirelurk spawns right next to the player randomly at weird angled places such as the broken bow in rivet city.

as for you're idea... I like it!
Yeah I'll definitely consider it in vault 58.

I haven't reached Rivet City yet. I just did "Head of the state" and will be heading there tommorrow. I also managed to fuck up about three missions by finiding vault 112 by accident almost straight away :c

well the broken bow is located to the right side of rivet city and is locked [Very Hard]. there is another way around but it requires going up three flights of stairs underwater and filled with mirelurks. the locked way is just the quicker and less scary way. there are two quests that require you to go here.. (Replicated man and the wasteland survival guide.)

But as for those three quests.. don't they give the XP rewards all at once?

So you finally got new vegas ayy?

kewls!  ^^
tis a great game.

I've had New Vegas for a while. My dad bought it and played through it (He has about 5 saves because he saved in the water tower of fallout three without completing everything and is paranoid, so it's easier for me to wait for him).

I have a lockpick of 80 so It shouldn't be long until I get to the broken bow. Yeah I tihnk they give XP but I want the achievments :c

Solgryn has a lot of crazy graphical effects in his game. Maybe you could ask him. Unfortunately, I've never used DirectX before so I don't know much about the subject.

In case you were wondering, the graphics engine I'm using actually has less functionality than GameMaker. The only thing it can do is draw images to the screen, possibly with persurface alpha or colorkey. I had to write a custom surface manipulation function just to composite two RGBA images together! There is no rotation, no flipping, no inversion, no grayscale, no lines, circles, or rectangles, etc.
Also, it doesn't use hardware acceleration, so it may actually be slower than GM depending on the circumstances.

I could switch to a fully featured and accelerated graphic library like OpenGL, but first I'd have to learn how to use it, and then I'd have to convert my existing project (which is really huge). SDL is really simple and easy to use, even if it doesn't have many bells and whistles.

Due to other things in pickory including almost everything being external , it runs fast dispite your slower graphics engine. It does the job though and Pickory is a very clean sprited game.

Boshy, Quote, Manic and so on...


A possible 2nd path is under way, no longer just a plain old 1 way.

The vaults are being a bitch to make but so far so good.

So, you guyz have planned to release another improved version before the final version? or just the final version right away?

PD: i wish you luck :p this project has a lot of potential

Awesome, but i have something to ask you guyz , PLEASEEEEEEE use external music files OR change the incredible amount of big backgrounds , because im uncapable o play the game like that (also in my friends computer takes forever to load :/)
Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro! - New Teammate partner!
Post by: Fred-eye-inc on January 26, 2011, 04:28:27 pm
First suggestion I made was external music, I threw Miracle some codes ad she's put it into Retro now. If Miracles up for it and I can get off my lazy arse and find some codes I guess we could take a stab about external background loading to ;D

external background is kind of a pain in the ass, what you can do is make separate rooms and stretch, or make the backgrounds sprites and make

Code: [Select]
image_xscale=view_xview
image_yscale=view_yview

but sometimes, that can be a pain if its a REAAAAAALLY big room that has that background repeated too many times

but then again, i use quite a lot the image_xscale thing in TFG2 and it doesnt take too much time to load, and also is not such a heavy GMK/EXE file

background_htiled[0..7] & background_vtiled[0..7] should do the trick.
Just open the built in help file and search background in the Index-tab to see all the parameters backgrounds have.

great! i really can't wait to be able to play retro on MY computer for once.
also, miracle...or Derf for that matter, please soft the backgrouds a litlle (is also called blur) cause sometimes they hurt my eyes  ot i end up confusing them with the tilesets >.<

Sorry but duplicating backgrounds into coding is very difficult & not to mention I have over 300 backgrounds, so I doubt I would even if I could.

The Blurred background effects are not in retro because they are tend to hurt peoples' eyes even more.

NINJA'd miracle XD


also, i have to disagree a litle if you blur and low intensity the backgroun would be nicer, also the 300 backgrounds is the reason for the load time and the unexpected error in some computers , and its actually not hard, i have to admit, it will take a long time to do , but it will be woth it
 i swear

yeah but the folder itself will be overcrowded, not to mention including the music files.
And time is something I don't have much of. 300-600 backgrounds can take days to produce in coding and splice into files themselves.
Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro! - New Teammate partner!
Post by: Fred-eye-inc on January 26, 2011, 05:13:12 pm
Miracle , if I can work out that screen saturation editing code would you include that in the options? That way some vibrant background won't need to be edited , if the player doens't like it he can desaturate the screen slightly.

Perhaps it's too much bother to risk the reward.
Like I said, Even if we figure out a code that blurs the backgrounds without blurring the entire screen, it'd still be a bitch to produce into an options menu and animated backgrounds.

thx anyways.  :)

no problem :)  

well, im sorry to be a real asshole but i have another suggestion/complain...
the bosses...they are all too simple in more thatn one way

the first one (machine thing from sonic): the only hard thing is go up and get to the machine, then is just stay there and jump and shoot like crazy, add more movement and atacks (or just do something else) i know that DERF is really good at making bosses (not as good as me MUAHAHAHAHAHA , just kidding xD) and you (miracle) have some really good ideas, i know you can do better

the second one (Chomp): is just lear the pattern, and let me tell you is boring.
again, i can imagine a lot of cool boss ideas whit the chop (chase sequenses like in yoshi's island, a one on one fight were he hides at the bottom of the screen and atacks sometimes, etc).

the Stepmania: this one is good, i have to admit, is really original, my unic complaim (and its not too important) is that there's only arrows going up xD

EDIT: if you (miracle and DERF) want help with bosses just talk to  me on skype

Post by: Miracle on January 27, 2011, 11:35:53 am
Finally got this to work yesterday! And it's great!

Yays finally!


I don't know how far in the game I am (Marble Zone) but it's been fun! The sprites are clean and fit each level like a glove. The music choice is superb (Only because i'm a sonic/sega suck up) and they really fit too. Most of the rooms provided new original traps but some were a bit too spike infested for my liking. I've got most of the secret items i've found so far apart fomr one which I assume is blocked off for a reason.

Yeah I Must change a few areas and I must admit myself that my sprite ripping is high quality.

I wasn't too keen on the first boss I must say. It didn't relly feel a boss , It just felt like a target amongst a room full of spikes. The second was was a tad boring but it was fun ^^

Like I said. Bosses will also be changed in later versions; ACCESSIBLY.

I like the addition of a sound test and I liked the secret item museum (Even if you have to press R to leave). I also like your edited Kid sprites , the sunglasses and sub-machine gun really fit him, sor tof as if he really is the guy now and he's badass.


Thanks.  :)

I'm not to keen on the glow above the lava in the marble zone room , it doens't seem very realistic and it's very square (If you PM me I can show you a better way to do it). I also don't really like the death animation , the pieces go flying to quickly for my liking.

Sorry but I'm not gonna change the death animation though I plan to change the game over screen.
As for the lava effect.. I'm also changing that too.

Overall this definately ranks 4# in my fave fangame list and I simply can't wait for the new version!


Cool; Cool.
At least now it works  :D


We're editing the bosses.

yeah but the folder itself will be overcrowded, not to mention including the music files.

Just use subfolders like I do.

Na. It's okay thx.

Agreed, I was just experimenting different effects but I'll remove the guidelines on the trait screen, don't worry.

Oh FYI, the IWBTG 16-bit tiles and Vault traps; Thank Derf for those, not me.

Post by: Indigo Blue on January 29, 2011, 05:53:12 pm
That looks fricking awesome, congratulations, im jealous of your level design skills xD

but as always, here are my suggestion/complains :

*Cave Story screens : there's a lot of good cave story tilesets you can use, i dont like the fact that are only the boxes, it looks kind of poor, you should use another theme (of cave story of course) and add more background accesories ( like chains , grass, etc) i recomend grass land, its easier to get the tiles, it looks good, and it has a lot of cool looking details and enemies (easy to replay on GM enemies i mean)

*the Temple : the background is kind of bright and it can hurt people's eyes, the easy solution is just go to intensity nd make it a little darker.

everithing else looks epic :3

PD: i would really like some previews of the improoved bosses (im curious about knuckles)
PD2: ever thinked about make a chaotix medley boss fight? were you fight against mighty, vector, etc. all in the same battle one after the other , that would be cool

Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro! - New Screenshots until next version
Post by: Storyyeller on January 29, 2011, 05:54:24 pm
Cave Story is really easy to rip because all the tilesets and graphics are in seperate files. There's no need to do print screening.

There's no need to rip CS. All the graphics come with the game, even stuff life weapon effects that Spriters' Resource doesn't have yet. The only thing that needs to be ripped are sound effects, and those are available on the internet.

Here's my opinion of this game

I found this game to be surprisingly....entertaining

This game brings me back so many memories...

Awesome music input, everything fit so perfectly in the rooms, except for the "house" theme.

 I think the Genesis music is the best (Bloodlines music kicks ass)

I found the secret items to be so fun to try to acquire due to the challenges you have to complete (i found all)

It urges me to the end to ask this question but whats the song called when you're in the Manic HQ or "golden" room and in the secret item museum,

The only level i hated the most is the "house", I hate GG music

The only game i've seen with a sound test screen, one question, why?

I used to love oranges, but now i'm scared of them

I give this game 4/5

Okay, Since everyone knows about it, I tell that Yes we're still working on rebirth and the first few levels; Recluse Ruins and Radium Reef are almost complete.

I've updated the menu system and vamped the music with some custom tunes and remixes.

I'll plan on releasing whatever I can when necessary.

Here's my opinion of this game

I found this game to be surprisingly....entertaining

This game brings me back so many memories...

Awesome music input, everything fit so perfectly in the rooms, except for the "house" theme.

 I think the Genesis music is the best (Bloodlines music kicks ass)

I found the secret items to be so fun to try to acquire due to the challenges you have to complete (i found all)

It urges me to the end to ask this question but whats the song called when you're in the Manic HQ or "golden" room and in the secret item museum,

The only level i hated the most is the "house", I hate GG music

The only game i've seen with a sound test screen, one question, why?

I used to love oranges, but now i'm scared of them

I give this game 4/5

Hope this game continues on




I'd figure I'd answer some field questions.
Anyway;

1.Thanks! The music sounds unique to some as it is mostly all 16 bit genisis music.
2.That music is summer madness 16-bit remix.
3.We was going to add a sound test but we was going to add a external sound system, so I figured we'd delete it in the next version.
4.Oranges are delicious, in fact in one later level that we were going to release has strawberry's too.
5.Cheers! It's just a shame we couldn't release it in time; oh well. We're starting fresh, making backups along the way, so hopefully this will be completed.

then I might post another few levels and then the next boss until the alpha is released.
Each level is around 4-6 screens so that should be enough for an alphas release.

I might add a mini boss at the end but I think it's okay as is.

I might even add some secret bosses as five bosses doesn't seem like enough.
Maybe two secret bosses might come into play here.

This is a really fun installment in the retro legacy so far, i love some of the gimmicks such as the past/future, screen tilting, timed blocks, rotating platforms etc, and I loved the fact you included the see-saw weight thing from sonic (was that a sonic 1 bridge area reference? =3) so far this is your best work IMO, the boss was a little on the easy side but well made none the less, look forward to seeing more of this  :)

Just wondering: what is with the white circles in the secret area next to the first boss?
The secret area itself isn't too bad, but what are the circles supposed to do?
Also, I can give a screen-by-screen analysis of this game when I get home tonight.
Overall, this game is way better than the original Retro, but it needs improvement.

They are supposed to be spotlights.
And I Will admit I kinda rushed a bit at the end to release an alpha this early.

2nd Version soon to be up in a week or two, Depending on how fast I fix a few bugs and tweak a few levels, Make another level or two and when I get the 2nd boss by indigo.

This version will include:

+Estimated 20-30MB instead of 70+
+I've edited the 1st boss, Severely; and by this I also mean; I added a new attack.
+New screens (from old and new levels)
+2 more levels (ending in the casino area)
+1 extra CD (the one that didn't work will work)
+3 Secret Characters (Some might not be in the next beta, But it's if I have a secret room in the future possible levels)
+Music changes
+Minor sprite editing
+Added traps
+Extended areas (such as vault 54 is now 3 screens long)
+Joy2key in folder for those using joypads, and don't have joy2key
+1 new boss
+New gimmicks
+A whole lot more!

looks like an ok game, I liked the nyan cat CD part. But at the first level, too many  :spikes:s, and i gave up ( for the moment ) on the second or third screen, with those lasers. Just u gotta dodge the flying spike at the millimeter and that is pretty frustrating, the difficulty should increase gradually. Most of the spike traps are innovating but still too much... I may post another comment if I manage to beat that part.  :P

[/quote] That's a crappy request. Tbh maybe if Miracle tones down some of the triggers or puts less spike son lower difficulties maybe but in my eyes the first area isn't really all that hard and IWBTG threw you in at the deep end too. The amount of spikes Miracle should remove shuld be closer to 5-10% not 95%, that would make no challenge at all and make it boring.

Well, i don't agree. I dont know about you, but Im not a super hardcore player of IWBTG, and making the FIRST level as hard as the last levels of the original IWBTG is a horrible idea. Just look at IWBT fangame, that is how it should be. In the first levels you should just be only walking and avoiding funny traps. It is good that the game is hard, but make it hard gradually. At the first levels he only should leave the platforms, and remove almost all the spikes, specially the ones at the top. The game won't get boring if it is easy at the beginning. :)
Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro: II ~ Trailer preview
Post by: Fred-eye-inc on June 03, 2011, 02:53:24 pm
Before we go any further, Miracle is a girl >_>

But surely if it's an fangame of IWBTG it should follow IWBTG? Besides if you play through it it does get harder, however if it started off as easy as "95% less spikes" then there'd be no challenge involved at all. At the moment this is no harder than IWBTG so you don't have to be a "super hardcore player of IWBTG" to be able to finish it.

Hon', If I make the game too hard, People complain.
If however, I make the game too easy, People complain.

It's just something you can't win at. So my difficulty curve is medium. (except for an exception of the last few levels)

And so far, You're the only one who has complained about it,  So I can't be doing that bad.

Besides, People play these fangames because they've played the original iwbtg and 99.9% of those people aren't newbies.

GB was very hard, But it didn't fail. it was quite good; And Isn't the whole difficulty thing based on what difficulty you picked on in the first place anyway? For all I know, You could of picked one of the advanced difficulty's.

My point being, Just because a game has hazards, I'll be it; a fair amount, not that many, Doesn't mean that it's necessarily going to be a bad fangame. Every fangame has hazards (i.e: spikes)  hon', Even the good ones.

Just sayin'.

EDIT: btw, Did I just read that you think that a game's first few levels; you just walk around in: fun?
Now that's a little weird. No offence.

Also, Who fucked up the quote system?
Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro: II ~ Trailer preview
Post by: dakaarts on June 03, 2011, 11:00:06 pm
about the quote system, i think it was me xDD.
yes, you should "walk around", meaning like u go trough the levels but with a minimum of traps killing you.
I beat IWBTG, IBTFG, and i played some more, but man, this is too hardcore.
Its very weird why other ppl still haven't complained about this...
I picked the easiest difficulty, but still was frustrating as hell. The difficulty is NOT medium, is hardcore.
But well, that is ok for me, if other ppl dont complain about it, its ok, but there will be some that will.

Post by: Fred-eye-inc on June 04, 2011, 05:21:19 am
Everybody has different abilities, I think that it was fairly easy and so does everyone else Im assuming. It's un-realistic to have to change the whole game to cater for just you because you find it too hard. In my opinion this is no harder than IWBTG and IWBTFG so I don't see why you have any trouble with it.
Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro: II ~ Trailer preview
Post by: Storyyeller on June 04, 2011, 12:04:08 pm

Title: Re: I Wanna Be The Retro: II ~ Trailer preview
Post by: Kinata on June 04, 2011, 12:22:41 pm
I find discussions about difficulty in these games to be kinda pointless. I mean remember who the intended players for these games are. The fact that we've all (hopefully) found and played IWBTG suggests that we are people who like challenging games. True, IWBTG is a great and hilarious game, though I doubt that's what we had been looking for.

At the very least, an IWBTG fangame should be too hard for the general public and near the difficulty of the original. It highly unlikely one of these games will ever be considered "too hard" because there is probably someone who would want to play a game of its difficulty (though things like learning curves and fake difficulty need to be considered of course). Just pick an audience and cater to them.

Do you plan on implementing the Past and Future on more stages?

It seriously has potential for some interesting puzzles. For example, there is a powerful monster blocking a special area in the present and in the future. However, you can take care of it in the past while it is still weak and then come back to the future to enter the secret passage

So you're admitting to be crazy then.
No one isn't sane if they complete iwbtg.

sooooo i gave your game another try, and its pretty good.
So here is what I think:
The difficulty is too big, even on easiest mode. There are some jumps that, ogh! Also, I had to use TWICE cheat engine speed hack, because the difficulty was too hardcore for me. What I hated is that i had to use it in the FIRST level, with the laser perfect timing thing. Also, the second part is when the bridge falls. The platforms are buggy as hell, they push me down, you should try to fix them, or remove that part. By the rest of the game, it was nice :). The 1st boss (tails) was pretty good made. If you did the voice acting, is awesome.
But i have 2 questions:
1. I got to that part with the TMNT tiles, and I got to the DEMO blocks, but i see in this topic that there is another screenshot, that I dont remember been there? Is my memory failing or I missed something?
2. In the room with the 1st Boss, that lava effect with the bubbles going up, did you make it by yourself or you got it from somewhere? If you did, can you gimme a link to the page where you got the effect? I wanna see more effects and maybe use one in my game :P

When I release another version this statement will make you're criticism about difficulty null & void.  ;D
The effects were By indigo. Credit him for it and the boss but I have srsly edited it now.
and no thats the last part. those are new screenshots.

You guys need to learn how to upload pictures to Photobucket or Tinypic. Thats mostly the only the only image hosting sites it will take. While quoting your post I saw the pic using my epik Copy and Paste powers!

Everything it's about priorities. Maybe her priority right now it's the college, something about her future, not the fangame. If you think that 6 or 7 months are a lot, then deal with it, not because you or somebody else are just complaining about her for not release an update of a DEMO she will release it right away.

Sugar, until I get my computer (currently buried in junk and boxes from moving), I can't do anything relating to the project, I'm afraid.

Also, I'm trying to add some custom 16-big graphics, as I'm going to add a Sierra Madre level.
