I'm back again, this time to help get some ideas and feedback.
I have some polls on opinions I need help with. Meeta and Walker (the Sheriff Bro) will be potentially replacing two party members. Meeta is set to replace Nabbit, and Walker is set to replace one of the excess party members. The question is: who?
Vote for whether or not these two should get in!:
Vote for Meeta: http://strawpoll.me/3613212
Vote for Walker: http://strawpoll.me/3613239
While the polls run, I'll dump some new screenshots and info. Of course, if you have any questions or comments, do not be afraid to ask.
And as always, post your ideas! I'd love to hear them.
Let's have some fun!
Is it just me, or are the items in Rose Town's shop kind of expensive?
A vote for meeta is a vote for best waifu
Here's a screenshot that was posted earlier on the website.
From now on, I'll be doing a pic of the day every day that I can. If there's no pic of the day, then some important personal issues came up, or I died. One of the two.
Today's pic of the day is of Portobello Village. Full of peaceful Goombas loyal to the kingdom, you can find the first badge shop here, as well as the Goomba Ruins.
The only path forward out of the village is high up... how will Mario and Luigi continue on their quest?
It's not you. I had trouble myself purchasing things without murdering everything in my path Lucky for you, immediately after the forest, there's enemies and locations with so many coins
Spoiler alert here
The enemiesin the Goomba Ruinsdrop 20 coins each
Here's a sneak peak of what tomorrow's picture may or may not be about. Spoil it if you dare.
Nope, you're stuck from backtracking.
Of course, once you get the Warp Whistle...
Bumping with another screenshot
This is from one of the sections of Toadstool Lane. Toadstool Lane is a very large and open map, allowing the player to explore. From going in caverns to bandit hideouts to secret cloud areas, there's lots to do here.
Shy Guys are Koopa Troopas are a common sight here.
My vote is for her
Yes, but sadly it's a little difficult. If you want to try it out, choose Easy mode.
Download it here: http://drawquesty.tumblr.com/
If I get enough requests, I'll put out a balanced demo.
Speaking of the demo, one of the biggest requests was to not have pitfalls equal auto Game Over. Using some programming magic, I was able to make it so you only lose 10 HP from falling into a pit, and it puts you back to a checkpoint.
Huh. I've been told that happens randomly. I really don't know why it happens, I have to look into it. It doesn't happen when I'm playing the non-demo game.
>If I get enough requests, I'll put out a balanced demo
Please. It's doubtful that we're getting another official Mario RPG anytime soon.
Is there any way could make party members visible in the field? Playing the game as Walker would be the tits.
Kind of. The programming magic was just editing the script to not end the game on death and instead play a common event that does some condition checks. If Mario's HP is above 10, dying takes away 10 HP. If he will die from a fall, it goes to a Game Over. Other party members can die from pits without Game Overs. If Luigi has 8 HP and Mario has 23, Luigi will die and Mario will live. If it's vice versa, it's a game over. It's like Fire Emblem.
Thank you for trying it out!
I will try to get out an easier demo soon. This is my last week before break, so I'll have all week with you guys. Expect a demo then.
I can try visible party members on the field. The default RPG maker does that, but with the platforming script, the party members spawn where you do and stay there.
There will be some sections where you switch to another character. These moments include:
Yoshi breaking Mario and Luigi out of the jail cell
Bowser catching up to the Mario Bros. to join them in the second half of the game
Peach when she's kidnapped
To name a few. There will be more.
Thanks! I'm a fan of pudgy Mario myself.
Here's some concept art I sketched up to showcase an idea I have for one of the castle levels.
There will be a Magikoopa or another magic enemy that will fly around the screen, turning on and off blocks in the castle. Once Mario scales to the top, it swoops down in a last resort to attack him.
...I'll... uh, keep that in mind.
Some more ideas. When Mario and Luigi are mistaken for Wario and Waluigi and arrested by Walker, Yoshi must break them out of the prison.
Neato, I remember these guys
The results are in!
Meeta will replace Nabbit, and Walker will replace Rosalina!
Dose that mean Nabbit's not in the game?
But I like Nabbit...
I don't know where I am or what's happening in this thread Can I help?
I posted this in one of the original threads, but I had this idea of a Parakoopa pilot that flies one of those old fashioned biplanes (similar to pic related.) I even had a shitty MS Paint drawing of him.
Oh wow, this is way better than what I expected
If I could request a character it would be the fiery Chain Chomps from SMSunshine as an enemy (maybe relate it to the pink Chain Chomp companion)
I have no idea how far this game is so does it have a story to it yet?
I realized a little too late that he looks way too similar to Parakarry.
That's not too similar, that's a fucking 1:1 parakarry with a red shell and a scard instead of a tote.
You just fucking reaccesorized a turtle, man.
I know. I feel like Chris Chan right now, man.
That gives me an idea...
What if your NPC was Parakarry's brother? He could run a airport, where you could ride a biplane to some location you couldn't reach before.
I can try that. Up is pretty useless in the overworld, anyways.
Just design some
Dude, if he wasn't related to Parakarry, he'd just be a blatant Parakarry clone.
How about just goggles and not an aviator cap, windswept hair, a
whiteshell (or maybe blue with like white splotches for clouds or some shit, all bob ross on that nigga), then he can wear gloves. Like driving gloves or something. pilots wear gloves right?
Not too different but different enough.
OP, after completing the demo, I can say it's a solid 7/10. Mario looks retarded though. like just not right. I don't know. Probably just me being dumb. keep it up, try to work on the platforming cause it's really stiff and not too fluid. also get more animations.
he's not pudgy he just seems wrong.
Look. he's like, his proportions are that of a normal person, but his torso is just shrunk, his arms are almost dragging on the ground.
His arms are around his waist there. I don't think it's really applicable since he's not got as much clothes and other shit on. Or at least, they're not particularly pointed out on the sprite.
Looks kind of similar to me, but NES Mario doesn't seem as squashed as Questy's Mario.
Are you talking plot or game in general?
The game is a platforming RPG. Imagine New Super Mario Bros. meets all the Mario RPGs.
If you want plot, I can whip up a small summary
I like it cause my real name is Charlie
All right, here's take two. I didn't really like the hair idea, but I kept the scarf. I also used grey rather than brown so that it's at least somewhat different.
I'm not into anything non-human so I'd say no, but if you'd like to post pics of Shy Girls and princesses as you post, that'd be okay
Neato. I'll draw my own version of him tomorrow. I think he needs the windblown hair
>generalizing nonhuman as furry to defend your shit taste
I just think hair kind of looks weird on Koopas. It's kind of DeviantArt level. But then again, this character is pretty much a Parakarry rip-off anyway.
played around with your sprite.
Also I love squashed mario don't ever change it
Oh yeah, you're a fucking retard. Fuck your shitty-ass "game", too.
Super tired but decided to do a super basic sketch of a character. Don Piranha is a Inky Piranha Plant complete with a cigar and mafia hat. Once deeply cared about by the head of a mafia,
Don PiantaDon Piranha has become the ruler of the pipe filled underground. He could make for some kind of ally, but make sure you don't cross him or you'll be sleeping with the cheep cheeps.
>And if it's not a human or an animal, than what can it be?
Mario has boulders for enemies.
Fucking BOULDERS for god's sake.
Now he looks souless
Hey dude! Long time no see.
I'm trying to implement the goons somewhere early on. I'm thinking at the end of Toadstool Lane they'll make their first appearance.
>their opinion differs from mine, so they MUST be underage
I wanna call them Hot Chomps
Chain Chomps that are always red-hot and thus more agitated
now with tiny SMB3 eyes
Question: so are you taking any inspiration for this game from the other mario rpgs? I mean, would you say it's more Paper Mario than M&L, etc? (both in regards to story and gameplay)
All of you just shut up, we don't need a fight
This thread is about game making, not fighting over who's fetish is better
I like it
It's really, at most, like SMRPG with badges, more partners, and Luigi
reposting this guy i drew for one of the previous threads cause he's cool
Played the game through, it's pretty neat I gotta say. This is RPG maker 3k right? How'd you get the stats so low? Every time I've tried to do that it just messes up stuff.
I'm even more confused about how you made it a platformer. How much scripting have you done to turn it into this?
Don't make me want to drop this and start something new Anon, I've already done too much
Maybe my next game with be a Kirby RPG
I like him. Maybe he could live in Fungi Woods or the Forest Maze?
Glad you like it! This is RPG Maker VX Ace, so low stats work pretty good.
>implying I'm bad
Nigga I can speedrun that shit
I can make it to Rose Town in eight minutes flat, and to Portobello Village in thirteen.
Normally it takes 33-40 minutes to get to Portobello, granted you're reading dialogue and fighting your fair share of enemies
Oh, it's VX? How'd you get the battle system like it is then, because it's not like that in VX normally.
So where are all these characters coming from in this the thread? The only one I recognize is the Chain Chomp, but only because she is on the title screen.
Also is there a way to get into that cracked block inside the tree?
Using some scripts to change the engine, I was able to change how it works
The characters were made in the same thread Chewlia the chain chomp was. http://4archive.org/v/thread/281133474
Ground-pound on it by pressing down in the air. The hitbox is a little precise, but I've fixed that.
program called open broadcaster software. It records locally as well as allows you stream. Free too.
I swear to god if there's not a video up in less than a week... I don't even know man.
I could not get OBS to run at a decent framerate above 480p. It just wouldn't work. I could get Xsplit andrun it at 1080p 60fps, but not OBS. All of the videos I made with it came out whitewashed as shit too.
Hmm... I see Chain Chomp, but I didn't see the Ninji character or any other party members except for maybe an enemy trio?
Should make a character roster and stick it on the tumblr.
Sounds good. When characters are officialized I'll make a character page for them
Can I have multiple pages on a tumblr? Like, one for characters, one for download links, etc?
Also, try looking in this one. Maybe Meeta and Walker were in here
No but we are going to try to make them every friday to keep the OC material fresh, even if I want more lewd of a piranha plant or Meeta, the threads should’t be pushed too often
if you're gonna stream, OBS bar none. xsplit has great x264 libs so if you're using a literal toaster with a dual core or something, xsplit is the way to go.
ANYTHING else and OBS is better. If you decide to stream i'm sure someone can help you figure out how to set it up.
They deleted a thread before.
But if we are carful we should be find.
I made an imgur album with all the pics made so far so we should have to link to anything except new stuff made by drawfags.
Yep. That's the plan.
Oh, and mods are with us, they always deleted the shitposts of the dudes that shitposted
Even when it was a samefag from >>>/vp/
Ay OP is Petey gonna be in this game since Nintendo decided to replace him with Rosalinda?
Also a paste bin of general background stuff (Gameplay, Characters, plot, and what-not) would do these threads some good
Don't fuck up my thread, guy. Link it
I like it.
Funny story. My name is Charlie, and when I was a kid my dad thought I was gonna be a football player. Now I'm just an artist. At least he's still proud of me
He'll make a cameo at most.
I'll post a post past bin in a sec
So how about something like:
- A standard tackle attack
- A punt that has line-of-sight aiming and can hit airborne targets
- A blitz tackle where he can charge through a line of enemies on the ground
- That jump and clap thing where he splits into three chucks and they all dogpile one enemy for massive damage
They also deleted my pic off /i/ too that I linked to, so be careful, rule 5 is GLOBAL
Just imgur host it
here's all my drawings for the threads if you wanna add what's missing; imgur.com/rOwsw imgur.com/U6eP4
Sounds good, although I was thinking he would have a move pretty much like Yoshi from TTYD where he blows a whistle and summons the entire football team of chucks to stampede all land enemies
aint even nothin on there but the new pages.
cool shit though I guess.
I'll be waiting for the video of you gettin to portobello in 13 minutes.
I know I said I was going to do three, but I guess I lied.
I really just wanted to draw the pompadour cleft.
Thanks, I draw stuff but I haven't done a whole lot in the Paper Mario style.
>You just fucking reaccesorized a turtle, man.
This got a coupla keks outta me.
Anyone making a fan-made Mario RPG and advertising it on /v/ has to understand that they have the power to invigorate the 34 material on any species in the Mario universe just by putting a pink bow on a slightly anthropomorphized (like in the style of Paper Mario) enemy design.
I would've gone with something more like one of the Dr. Mario viruses or maybe even whatever species Chippy was in BiS but Chain Chomps aren't bad either. I just hope artists have the sense to put the hole around where the chain is instead of on her underside.
Wanna discuss something at least?
How would you a Boo?
Pretty effectively, although you've posted an inferior version of the design.
I think he's more interested in seeing Mario in that situation.
Oh hey OP, sorry I missed the last few threads, I was one of the guys who volunteered to help with the script. I was uh.. sleeping. A lot. I'm still tired actually.
Any major advancements since Sunday?
Whoa, this looks really cool!
Why are Fan Projects always so much BETTER than Nintendo games these days? See; Project M, Mother 4, now this?
