Yeah, the Shiny Sword is a bit more harsh than most Shining Games. All those 12 year olds in the 90s are now about 30, so I think we should scale up the challenge accordingly Wink.

I found it pretty hard, too, but that's because I gathered only 2 members for the party and then entered the sewer battle. Thanks to your hints it will be easier. Smiley

If you like I can add more easy battles to the game.... I just need to think of more interesting weenie monster types then Tongue.

Well, still updating the code. Fixed the healing animation and made it fancier, and I updated the item graphics now Smiley.

Nice. I've been doing some work on the site (nothing major, just cleaning up lots of code and making some much needed fixes). I might add something to show when a project's code has been updated, so we can show we're not totally dead Wink

Awesome Smiley. I'll just hammer away at whatever in the game in the meantime. You'll be able to follow my progress on the SVN revision log I guess Wink.

One thing I still do suck at are game sprites though. Those things take ages to make, and they look weird when I make them...

I'll have a go at some sprites today then Smiley Do they have to be in GIF format or will transparent PNG be fine?

Cheers! Thanks a lot Ty Cheesy.

BABS supports both, but I personally prefer PNGs these days Smiley. The overall setting is a bit of a high fantasy very savage Egyptian desert-style environment, and I need all sorts of sprites really.

Regarding monsters, I think I mentioned some suggestions in the other thread Smiley.

One more thing: the alpha channel is fully supported with PNGs Smiley.

I'm not much of an artist, but I'll see what I can do Smiley

So...uh... I thought the Seolean sprite was a good place to start. But now he looks like he's had a poker shot up his arse. I think I'll stick to map tiles Wink

lol!!! Agreed, we should work on things that are easy to do Smiley
 
In that case perhaps we should fetch a sprite artist from somewhere else though. Perhaps one roams around on the SFC forums or we can do a few commissions at fiverr.com?

Otherwise I can make the sprites, but they do take me ages and look like crap Tongue.

I think that might be our best bet - I can cope in small resolutions, but 50x50 is a little too much for my lack of skills Wink I've been reading up on my spriting tutorials, so I'll have another go at the weekend, but this time I'll start on something simpler.

Sounds good. By the way, do you want access to the background wiki, to get an idea what the setting is all about?

The game won't adhere rigidly to the setting, but it'll be heavily inspired by it for sure Smiley.

Sure thing, that would help me get a feel for what I'm drawing. Or at least trying to Wink
