    Re: Chi Legacy: Gaia

    If you've been keeping up with Enterbrain, they've released a new "maker".

    Now, I've played with the demo a little and I like it so far. Holds a lot of promise.

    Hell, I'm thinking of converting over to that since I can also upload games to
    Xbox-Live with the XNA member's package.

    It's still in Japanese with no publicly released agenda to release it to the English
    speaking world. So, I'm holding my breath a little.

    There's a fan translation, but it's wonky at best.

    Just letting you guys know what I'm thinking!
    I'll have a more suitable update ready in a few more weeks or so.

    Well, been working on the game (a little) and came up with
    how the martial arts system will work.

    The player and enemies will have 5 types of martial arts and
    martial arts based attacks.

    The five are:
    Wushu
    Muay Thai
    Karate
    Tai Chi
    Tae-Kwon-Do

    ...So far I've made a kinda balanced way on which defeats what.

    Wushu Defeats Karate and Muay Thai, but loses against Tai Chi. Neutral: Tae-Kwon-Do

    Muay Thai Defeats Tae-Kwon-Do and Karate, but loses against Wushu. Neutral: Tai Chi

    Karate Defeats Tae-Kwon-Do and Tai Chi, but loses against Muay Thai. Neutral: Wushu

    Tae-Kwon-Do defeats Wushu and Tai Chi, but loses against Karate. Neutral: Muay Thai

    Tai Chi Defeats Wushu and Muay Thai, but loses to Tae-Kwon-Do. Neutral: Karate
    So, if Yuji is equipped with the Wushu style or uses moves from
    the Wushu school, he's more effective against Karate and Muay Thai
    fighters. Though, if he fights a Tai Chi fighter with Wushu equipped
    he'll recieve double damage, if not a fatal blow.

    There's probably an error with this, so this is just a start.

    So now on top of the five elements of Chi magic to deal with,
    now you have martial arts styles. Chi elements though are more
    for monsters.

    Chi Magic won't hurt humans as much, but martial arts will!

    I'm really sorry to hear that, man. You're badass for not letting it stop you though. Right on.

    You might actually even find that the game is even better (not to mention easier to make) the second time. Just look at the first time as a practice run.
    Yeah, fortunately the only thing that corrupted was the data files for some odd
    reason. All my music and graphics made are still intact. Just gotta re-make
    the maps and events.

    Re: Chi Legacy: Gaia

    Well, have some bad news. My HDD got stupid and corrupted my data files.

    So, I'm starting from a REALLY old back up. Unless I find the time to get
    everything back, I wouldn't expect a demo by the end of this year.

    Sorry to the folks that still kinda keep up with this project.

    Don't know if people are still following my game here, but I'm still working on it!

    Just been hard with work and job hunting.

    Anyway, got some updates to share, but they'll come later in the week.

    Stay tuned!

    New screenshot. I took Ryner's advice and streamlined the HUD.



    So far I've just been doing database/script/graphics work. Not really
    working on the game itself yet.

    Well, as stated, everything is beta.
    Which means I'm working and tweaking things.

    I'm not too good at pixel art, but I'm slowly learning as I go.
    His graphic now is my best work ever, so yeah. I'm still working on it.

    If anything, it's mainly the color of his clothing contrasted with XP's sprites.
    His colors are louder. And his hair color, platinum blond, doesn't help to make
    things easier. Detailing on that specific part has been immensly difficult on
    my end.

    Well, it is beta right now, so it might change in the future.
    I could always use some help from any artists is any are interested.

    You either didn't read the features, or you're just plain dumb.

    I find your FACE to be distracting, although I am not going to say WHY only that it is.

    Actually, the beauty of the XP is you don't need to own it to play the games.
