Update 07.10.16


The new update is finally uploaded! It contains:
  • New content for the main story line. (continues in Witton where it ended before)

  • Item synthesis at several blacksmith now possible!

  • You can now harvest Iron Ore in several dungeons after getting the
    Mithril Pickaxe. You’ll get the pickaxe during a side quest of the new
    story line events which also brings you to the new map Dhranholl mines.

  • More about different races with Ellanore at the sleeping chambers.

  • Sound bug with the stone boulder trap fixed.

  • Stone seller dialog in the capital changed to make it easier to find him.

  • New CG scenes added for Hellhound and the Wyvern girl Leneth. You
    can start those events and find Leneth in a locked storage at the
    Norhall Stronghold in Begus. You’ll need Sandra to open the door.



I’m also working on a new battle system for the warmap. A can take a
look at the current state of it in the screenshot below. Moving your own
 units (green) around and attack enemies works fine but making
conditions for enemies to react to your units is still taking some time.
 Also planned to be added in this system are:


  • Research trees for each unit time (replaces "formation" in the warmap screen)

  • Experience for fight and level ups for each unit.

  • Special commanders (maybe as "heros") for units.



The walkthrough will be updated in a bit as well.

Please be so kind to leave your feedback here or per mail at naughty-netherpunch@web.de
Download the newest version at:
-- Mediafire --
-- MEGA --


You can also find the file "Renryuu 23.09.16 to 07.10.16 update files.zip" in the download folder. This should contain all files you need for the update without the need to download the entire game again. Since it's the first time I'm trying to do it this way please let me know when something doesn't work.


General information:

You can continue to play your old progress by copying the old save folder into the folder of the new game version.


Saveslot 15 and 16 are used for auto-saves. Don’t save your
own progress there if you don’t want it to get overwritten with
auto-saves.

  1. Error at launch :
    Failed to load : img/system/IconSet.png

    Ive looked in that folder, there is indeed no file of that name.

    Any idea what is going on ? The previous version was running just fine before applying the update..

    1. The update files are only files that are changed since the last update, files that weren't changed since then are not included. So you can't delete or replace the "img" folder with the one from the update files but instead you have to integrate the folders together and replace only the old files with the update ones.

  2. Tried to download both file again, in case. Very same situation + confirmation that I already had correctly extracted the update files.

    No change over the displayed message @launch :
    Failed to load; img/system/IconSet.png, not sure if it count, but should the file location be seen as \www\img\system instead ?
    (Knowing the file is indeed there in that case).

    Quite curious in any case..

    1. Yes, the "img" folder is within the "www" folder in the game folder. So it's "Game folder"\www\img\system.
      Which two files did you download? The old version you need to upload shouldn't even be downloadable anymore. :D
      Do you have problems with the complete new version "07.10.16 v2" as well?

      Delete
  3. Hm, so if understood right, the update is self contained ?

    Cant be, given there is only a "www" fine with no .exe

    The files :
    First the full download of the game then the update, knowing it seem the files on the mega folder have been updated, Ill give it another try then.

    Indeed, the updated testversion is working alright, not sure what has been happening.

    ----
    Another question, how/where is the Player supposed to find the response to the question for the magic test ?
    Quite some are in the game as it is, but others (magic mirror ?,
    Magic apple,
    vivern,
    the name of the spell reflecting toward launcher ?

    Other are ok, guess it is to early for that quest ?

    1. All answers for the magic test can be found in the game. The items Magic mirror and Magic apple can be found while Wyverns might be known in general but can also be found in the game now.

  4. The "update" files only replace add some files in the old version 23.09.16 to change it to the newest version 07.10.16 v2.
    The game version 07.10.16 contains all old and new files and does not require the update files.
    The thought is that people who already have the previous version don't need to download the entire game again but only the updated files and add them to their game folder to update it.

  5. Ok, first text report :
    Leneth when arriving at her "house", since the game did go on, I cant give the exact error (no return to previously passed text, shame).

    Second for today :
    Kurohime in the cell area (when set back to "normal"):
    "Or did you just wanted to look at (my) cute face ?"

    Knowing that since training she should be quite more happy to see Ryen + looking forward is good care..

    Guess it is something to see for later on as she is quite a special asset given her setting(s).

  6. Elly on her second quest (finding ingrediants) :
    was in the text before "Yes that's all for now" (damn memory).

    +
    When back @castle :
    Elly :
    Since we have everything now(,) wanna start right away ?

  7. Why is a Wyvern kept prisoner in the storage? And why does she still look more cheerful than most of us!? - Tsubaki

    Leneth. How does it work with her clothing? What if she has to pee?!

    "Who are you and whom do you serve?" I'm Queens Guardian #4 and I serve Young Queen! "Can it be that you are retarded my honored guardian?"

    Random teleport magic... it's an really dangerous power! It opens space for plot holes, be careful with such an force!

    Would like to help you with the game an bit, but I'm aren't very often on Skype. Also I don't have any art oder music skills.

  8. Maybe Leneth usually runs around naked and it was just someone in the castle that put some clothes on her. :D

    Do I really have a guard say "I serve Young Queen" or what is that part about?

    Indeed, I'll be careful with teleport magic not to be very common or easy.

    Don't worry about it. Just giving feedback when you see something bugged or comment on what you think is nice or strange is helping me. :)

    1. It's just an joke that the queen dosen't have an name yet, also about that people tend do use unclear names while they work with the RPG Maker, which can lead to some propblems or funny scenes.

      Delete
    2. I would never use unclear names and call someone the same as their race like Vampire or Hellhound.... :x

  9. is there a reason you leave gameus quest editor in the folder during your releases or just oversight, and since the game isn't breaking every five minutes anymore is it possible to have a toggle in options to disable autosave? to me I find it to be more of any annoying nuisance then a help.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I knew that the quest editor is in the files but never checked if the questlog works if it's taken out. Since the file isn't even 1 MB it shouldn't be a big deal either way. ^^
      There is no option to disable thje autosave at the moment. How exactly is it an nuisance to you?

      Delete
    2. when I'm messing with things and then go to save before trying to do something stupid, I constantly end up at 15 and 16 rather then the save files / area I want to look at. also because I'm not having the game crash every five minutes like in the past it just seems redundant frivolous and a pain to deal with cause in all honesty it's probably saves I'll never use.

      Delete
    3. Alright. I'll take a look at options to turn it off. :)

      Delete
    4. well options to toggle it, because I'm sure someone appreciates the feature.

      Delete
    5. Stupidity prevails! I managed to bug the game XD, I bribed the guard before speaking to Malahaki in the church, then before interacting with the guard again I interacted with Malahki, did the little quest, then went back down stairs to get the gun intentionally botched it up, got kicked out, then spoke to the guard and the religious toolbag in the center wouldn't let me pass through despite the guard saying it was okay. Most idiotic scenario possible and I somehow locked it up XD

      Delete
    6. Of course I meant an option to toggle the auto save on or off. :)
      Yeah I already heard the Elly quest conflicts with the main quest in several ways. I'll fix it for the next update.

      Delete
    7. Is there anyway to push past the bug where the Elly quest conflicts?

    8. i am a thai people i might Written English is not good

      i am happy at play your game very much
      thank you for create this game for us

      :)

    9. @Baby Stuff: It depends in which way the quests colided for you since it can happen in different ways.
      The easiest way would be to finish Ellys quest before starting the main quest in the church if that's still possible for you.

      @ชิโน๊ะ สุเกะ: Thanks for the praise. :)
