I WANNA BE THE GUY: GAIDEN RELEASED
« on: July 14, 2012, 09:26:42 pm »


*READ THIS*

If the game is crashing on the title screen PLEASE RESTART and then report if that helps.

if the game is crashing while restarting, lower your graphical details. It'll reduce the blood splatter.

If you can't save, try and put your EXE in a different directory or run as Adminstrator to make sure it has write permissions.

Yes, Ironman is bugged. All gamejolters will have the challenge removed during the next release, though if you achieve it now, you should re-achieve it automatically.

Thanks for all the Excellent® feedback. Expect a patch to handle a bunch of this stuff in the coming days.

*READ THIS*


Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy: Gaiden is ready for public consumption. Things might be a bit buggy at first, but a few revisions later and things should be all smoothed out. I'm sure you'll all live though. The bugginess is sometimes part of the charm for the IWBTG experience, right?

So what is Gaiden? Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares -- it's a 3 stage episodic bite of new IWBTG action.  What about the future of Gaiden? Hard to say. Brave Earth is going to steal my attention until it's done, so don't expect more any time soon, but I surely will add more content at some point. How big will that content be? How many episodes will their be? Who cares, I'm playing it by ear.

So what's working, what's not working and whatever?

We have...

*New stage based gameplay
*3 Stages
*Configurable Controls with Gamepad support
*Trophies (also supported through Gamejolt)
*Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)
*A new button! Z to jump, X to shoot and X to BIIIONIC AAAARM
*Probably won't crash!


What isn't done?

*No fullscreen or resolution support.
*Probably needs a lot of optimization
*Probably has lots of bugs
*People wanna be able to fuck with people like I fucked with Floe. I might be able to come up with a way to do that in the future.
*Graphical options are basic. Sound options seem to be a little flighty.
*Some interface/menu stuff is kinda groudy and needs modification.
*Might still crash! (but unlike with MMF2, there is more I can do about it this time around.)


So if you have any problems, bare with me.

Also I'd recommend getting a Gamejolt account so you can share your trophies and times with other players! Sign-in is inside the trophy menu.

It's been a while.

I've forgotten that you can never let your guard down.

Game becomes unresponsive when I get killed by the zeroth Pirahna Plant
Game now crashes when I try to load game.

Game pretty much crashes whenever it has to write to disk, now that I try changing the options again.

Will try again tomorrow, if it happens again I'll see what I can do about getting a memory dump.


Running Windows XP SP 3, 1GB RAM. Probably shouldn't have installed it (a) into the same folder as IWBTG and (b) inside a Dropbox directory. Problems still occur even after moving it to a non-dropbox non-IWBTG folder - also why does the INI file already have a fullscreen option in it?

Game now crashes when I try to access pretty much anything. Had one crash while accessing the Trophies after a reinstall, and had another crash when entering the Key Config. Crashes whenever I try to use any of the save slots.

We should report the bugs that we found.

The graphics of the charging bullet dissapared in the stage 1-1, sometimes using the chain.

I love it, I passed the stage 1-1 and 1-2 at first time.

People, start recording speedruns :D

This happens everywhere.

Also, I'll be reporting any of my findings once I'm done the game.

Also, FUCK THOSE SAWBLADES!!!

Game crashed after several retries on stage 1-2, I'll restart and see if the problem persists.

Just finished on medium mode, many things to note!

The 2nd stage is CONSIDERABLY harder than the other 2, it took me 36 minutes apparently, the other 2 each took less than 15, (ok to be fair, number 3 took almost 15)

The game crashed on the 2nd stage, either while dying to one of those missile guys or pressing restart immediately after being hit by said missile, it said to report this to the creator, which I am now. X_X;

At the end of stage 2, I wondered if maybe there was a secret something or another past the exit, so I jumped OVER the exit door, moved off the screen to the right and...well the lad went off screen, but I couldn't get him to come back, he didn't die or anything, he was just stuck offscreen. (update!) this also happens if you jump to the left at the very start of stage 3, and if you fall between SOME of the red crushers in level 2.

You can actually jump past the axe in stage 2 without taking care of it first...its... difficult to explain exactly what happens when you do this, (Can you just try it?) basically you can keep moving in that direction, and you shouldn't be able to in the first place alright.

The music in stage 2 is horrible in general, yes this IS a design flaw! XD

upon finishing stage 3, I was awarded the W.V.B.A. Champion trophy...and promptly noticed the time and deaths for each individual stage have all reset to 0's, which is most likely why I was awarded this trophy, the total numbers overall don't appear to have been affected though.

If you customize a controller instead of the keyboard, you still need to use the KEYBOARD until you reach the file select screen, at which point the controller will start functioning. (This seems consistant).

The last boss in level 2 (don't know his name...seriously who the hell is he?) wasn't making any sounds at all on my hard mode run, he he did on medium and very hard though.

If you fiddle with the trophy menus, sometimes, when you then highlight your files, the difficulties will display "easy" on each one that you highlight, seems to be entirely cosmetic though.

Oddities that may or may not be bugs:

The grappling hook doesn't work at point blank range? (probably not a bug but...)

The "Boss" box on the file select screen is blank even after beating bald bull?

The momentum you get from a charge shot while grappling is sometimes INSANELY fast, while other times, it moves at a slow (and usable) pace. Why is this? This was actually present when that Floe person was playing. (Who the hell is this guy anyway? I'm way WAY better than him!) -_-;

If you used your 2nd jump already, and you press the jump button while grappled and NOT swinging left or right at all, you will fall straight down instead of jumping? Because in this instance it seems to use the 2nd jump? (I wish I realized this at that one point in stage 2, but is this a bug? If you used the 2nd jump and ARE swinging left and right it jumps like you'd expect)

Actually its just functioning strangely period. Its not consistant.

The red platform immediately to your right at the start of level 2, (the one that moves up and down really fast) can be bypassed almost entirely, wait for it to stop spazzing out, then move over to its right side, and you can fall through a small gap, (its only on the right side that you fall through, and not the left)

The red things that try to crush you later (right before the saws) kill you if you touch their undersides. Isn't this hard enough?

Should I post new things I find in a NEW post, or just keep changing this one? Just started hard mode, beat first level, 3rd level is already selectable (is it supposed to be?) and the time and deaths for individual stages are still 0's.

0 crashes so far.

Gave up 175 deaths at the "Swing point surrounded by remote controlled drones."

I guess Boshy's more lenient on the "Cheap bosses VS Fair platforming."

This has "Fair bosses VS Cheap Platforming." Just like the last one. Hahaha.

Can't do it. I know for a damn fact I can do the rest since it doesn't have gimmick shooting with random chance. Ugh.

Well done Kayin. May your other game flourish and occupy your time so this dies an epic swan song.

This was made in Construct right? Sounds interesting. It should be a lot easier to debug and optimize than that terrible MMF2.

Got to two crashes now; one after passing Zangief/Chun-Li (while getting shot at by the one guy I didn't kill before those two... right as I was about to save), and in the first sky room (swinging across the spike blocks) in the third level.

The Former was a 'program has stopped responding'; the Latter crashed outright.

Is there a way to delete save files yet? Nothing seems to indicate that there is...

Oh wait, I just NOW noticed my save files on the desktop (which is where the game is atm)...how did I miss those? O_o
