        Well I don't really want to give it away, but if you really want to know I can PM you.

          May you, I would love to learn. I barely have a grasp on the normal battle system though.

            Re: Evil Fantasy

            I have put in a solid 10 hours the last couple days.. I finished up that puzzle and added a few items. The majority of the time was spent on my second map. It turned out better then I expected. I also added two rather large story scenes. Including a Boss Battle, and a storyteller.

            My main goal with this game is innovation. I want to do stuff that hasn't been done before, whether that's puzzles, events or whatever. I guess mainly visual stuff. I think I've done a pretty good job of adding new refreshing stuff so far. I have many, many ideas writen down waiting to be tested out.

            Hopefully I do both Resident Evil and Final Fantasy 7 justice.

              I am nearly finished with a new town. It's pretty much done except for adding the Infected and all the hidden items that come with Resident Evil games. The town holds 3 different puzzles that correspond to each other. The main one uses the storyteller.

              I watched ever cutscene in Crisis Core on youtube. That really helped with thinking up the main story. The dialogue has been pretty easy so far because I know most of the characters personalities already. That makes things easier. I'd say the hardest part is making the mood scary like Resident evil is. RPGM 3's lack of music makes it hard, but I'd say it's coming along.

              The game is pretty linear like RE 4, but because of that things happen back to back. There really isn't much downtime in the game. At least for how far I am. Another challange I'm having is making the world feel like Final Fantasy 7. Because it takes place in that world and it being linear I've had to adapt. Though, it's no where near exact I think you'll be able to reconize some of the areas.

              Right now I'm at 17% flat. Also it's kind of hard having a progress log that I need to watch what I put in. I don't want to spoil too much.

                Good luck, Lausen, and I know what you mean about a progress log re: not putting in too much info and spoiling it. I'm doing the exact same thing in my forum. Funny....I've spent probably almost 11-12 hours on my game so far, and I'm only at about 2.5%.

                Granted, most of what I've done so far is dialogue. And as for the "trying to innovate" thing, and the "trying to do things that have never been done before" thing, if you've kept up with my forum at all or my posts in the RPGM forums, you'll know that that's also exactly my schtick...and you might find out more about this after the contest is over.

                  Yeah, I've read most of your posts. I think I may be taking a slightly different path tough. I know you like to push the "coding" of RPGM3 to the limit. I've seen it first hand with Series 1. I'm trying to push the visual or presentation of 3. If you've played my Field of Dreams map and got to the end you know what I'm taking about.

                  Good luck with your game too. I hope we see a lot of new things with this contest.

                    Well I have got some decent work done over the last two days.

                    2 new characters
                    2 new classes
                    5 new items
                    1 new monster
                    5 small storytellers
                    A new town

                    I made the biggest story event yet. It gives more insight on the main plot. It takes 2 full modes. Most of which is dialogue and a boss battle.

                    I added a crap load of decrotives, chests and small events. I also got rid of the default level up system. It is something more that fits in with RE and gives more modivation for fighting. Also everything is balanced up to this point. I'm at 21.2%

                      Well, Lausen, this is quite the unique-sounding game you have going here. I hope you keep pressing on with it. Good luck bro. You've pulled off some really cool things so far, and I'm sure this will be no exception.

                        Re: Evil Fantasy


                        Well, it’s been about a week since the last update. I have got a lot done in that time. I made 2 new towns. 1 of which is completely done. The other is more then half way completed. This includes a crap load of decoratives. I also made a new dungeon. It’s not very big, but it holds a pretty cool puzzle. I have made 6 new puzzles in total. That has taken most of my time, and a good chunk of memory. 3 new monsters have been added. Between the 2 towns and dungeon I added around 20 small interactive events and 10 treasure chests. With the interactive events I have been trying to flesh out the characters and their personalities. I’d say it’s going okay so far. Every thing is balanced up to where I am.

                        Having a deadline has made me work on this a lot more then Holy-Chaos. I haven’t been rushing either. I’ve just been trying to make sure everything is of quality work. Because of the genre I’m ripping off, I’m going to keep things on the shorter side. I hope to finish up this town in the next couple days.

                        I’m at 31.2%

                        Thanks Pag. I'm pretty sure I have some things never before done in here, but then again I could be wrong. I hope I don't disapoint. I'm just going to have fun with it.

                          31.... I've been working on my game since January and I'm only at 13.

                            Well I’ve got a lot of stuff done. Not all of it is necessarily new, but time consuming. I made a few new monsters and changed around almost all of the battles. I made a new map, as well as revised an old one. The new one took well over ten hours to make. I’d say that’s what most of my game time went to this week. I’d say it’s probable the best map I have made. The changes to the older map really went well too.

                            I made a new dungeon and a town to go on the map. I made multiple puzzles.

                            Another big part I added was the custom money and upgrade system. I made it so the money or “Gil” is tracked through both a variable and the intelligence stat. Because the player has control of how the character develops I had to do several playthroughs. The hardest part was making sure there are enough items to stay alive, but not so many that survival becomes too easy. It is a survival/horror after all. I made it so you have to conserve. All of the different ways I developed the main character I was able to survive. Some ways are harder then others. I’d say the game itself is a little over halfway done.

                            I am having a problem though. I have a part that is timed. The thing is, I don’t know if I have provided enough time. I can make it through with plenty of time to spare, but I am the creator after all.

                            I’m at 47.7%

                              I have done a lot of stuff since the last update. I made a new map/town/dungeon. It's different then what I've ever done, but they combine to make a nice place. It's hard to explain, so you can wait to see it when the game is done. I'm working on another map right now. I'm on the last leg of the game. Hopefully I can finish in a few weeks so I can consitraite on getting HC released.
