It’s always exciting to see new project updates from The Legend of Syro, and this one is a real treat! There’s a tonne of new features (see the changelog) and lots of polish.

From Chaoswizard98:

This was a huge quality of life update and much of the core code has been changed. If I could get a few people to test it out, that would be great! As always, let me know if you find any bugs.

This update contains all of Chapter 1, a ‘Control Enemies’ cheat, the 6vs66 challenge map (Good luck! you’re going to need it!), and my Debug Test room which contains some new spells for you to mess with (Quake and Summon). Chapter 1 aside, all other features are accessed via the ‘Options’ portion of the main menu.

If you haven’t tried the game before, I highly recommend giving the demo a thorough playthrough. It’s extremely polished and has a great Shining Force feel to it. As always, be sure to leave some feedback in the forum too.

Merry Christmas everyone

I added a nightmare challenge battle to the game which puts you up against all 66 enemies from chapter 1 all in a single battle royale. You can play this battle by setting ‘Challenge Mode’ to true in the options menu before starting a new game.

There are still a few more things to finish before Alpha 1.4 is released. From the forum topic:

The remaining To-Do list for Alpha 1.4 is as follows.

– Fix Egress (Currently just restarts the battle and heals all characters)
– Add “Below ship map”
– Finish rigging characters for battle weapons
– Add ranged weapons (and exploding arrows) to battle cutscenes.
– Search in battle
– Battle platforms (Because y’all keep bugging me about this! lol)
– Polish existing dialogue / cutscenes.

It’s Windows only, but should work on any machine with Windows XP and above.

Well, the pre-alpha demo for ‘The Legend of Syro’ is finally complete. As most of you probably already know, I’ve been working on a standalone Shining style game using gamemaker. Although the main game still has a long way to go yet, I finally have enough of the engine coded to be able to provide you with a standalone pre-alpha demo.

Although the main game still has a long way to go yet, I finally have enough of the engine coded to be able to provide you with a standalone pre-alpha demo.

This demo has it’s own very lighthearted story, 2 battles, cutscenes, and pretty much everything else that you would expect to be in a shining game. Consider it a 2-3 hour long ‘Thank You’ game to everyone who has supported me here on SFC.

Even at this early stage the game has plenty of features and is very polished. Make sure you pop over to Shining Force Central and leave some feedback!

The battle cut-scenes now support any frame limit as well as whatever animation speed you want to give it. This way you can really animate every aspect of the cutscene at the speed you want. I also fixed an issue caused by button spam and added 2 scripts which take care of drawing the right character and animation for the battle cutscene. Crit and Block scripts have also been added.

Be sure to drop by the topic at SFC and give some feedback.
