First of all, here it is!:
I'm very excited to show you guys this because I haven't made an update in about two months.... unfortunately shortly after the last update, I FAILED TO BACK UP THE CURSED BLACK FILE after I had to do a clean install of Ubuntu. This means, all the coding progress I made from when I first got out of summer, from May to the beginning of July, ALL THAT PROGRESS WAS FOR NONE AND I HAD TO START OVER. GODDAMNIT THIS PISSED ME OFF SO MUCH. I swear I was in a depression for a few days after that happened... and had to restart a lot of things I fixed in the last video from an older backup file. This set me back quite a lot. Now I'm not only caught up but I'm past the point where my last save file was.. AND now I have an active backup of the game file in my external hard drive and in dropbox. This is not going to happen again.
There isn't a HUGE amount of visible progress here because believe it or not, i've been bug-fixing all summer (i'm talking about bugs that were present in the LAST demo that I could never figure out but I finally sat down and fixed them), and finally I got enough things working to show a demo.
Right now the following works:
Creating a Pokemon
Pokemon learning attacks by level
Pokemon being cursed
Party system with switching enabled
Cursing Trainers (as in, tombstone curse, not verbal...)
Events with NPC (got my own language working in Game Maker)
Wild pokemon battles, real or with Ghost
here are the new things that are different from the original Pokemon Red:
- There is a building connecting all major maps (towns, routes)
- There is a building in Route 1, this is Blue's house
- Blue (female playable character, rival if not playable) is added
- Security guards at every town connection with new text
