You can use the keyboard to navigate through the menus too. Also ESC will do autobattle. Thanks for the bug finds I'll look into it.

got that, thanks

Yeah, I noticed the arrow keys & the ESC. I'm one of those wierdos that actually read help docs. I'm just not always allowed to use the keyboard, depending on whether Nessie-the-supposed-to-be-toy-poodle-but-really-mini and/or Neffie-the-equally-rapidly-growing-Tonkinese-kitten are requiring my chest as a resting place. (Nephie is short for Nefarious Purr-puss).

I think I might be able to add a pause not sure, I can always pause the speed bar. I will think about it. Right now Chicken Fighters is on the backburner so I'm not really working on it. Obviously it was suppose to be done by last year but its not, just havent had time.

not a problem

I gathered you are spending most of your time on the lovely new RPG. I didn't expect instant bugfixes!! That new game looks ever so nice - can't wait for the first version!

One last one ...

The spell Drain doesn't seem to work as described - it does damage the opponent, but doesn't give my chickie back any health.

I have decided that I am going to try and look at the Chicken Fighters code again and maybe finish it. The game is so close to being finished, 80-85%, I just cant leave it. I wont promise anything but I will promise tonight I will look at my code and perhaps do something!

I need help with the map though!

perhaps you could have an option for turn-based - pause the game

I looked into this, its easy to do but hard to make perfect because of how I wrote the code. I think its too much work so I will not be doing it, but I will keep thinking about it for an easier solution if possible.

Also, in one of the houses in the first town there is a lovely never-ending supply of free seeds in a desk. Fun, but presumably a bug.

I am not able to recreate this, can you please give me more information? Perhaps a screen shot?

Also ... you can't change the options for midi and sound from within - it gives and error. I was able to do it from the ini, though.

I was also not able to recreate this, can you please give me more info please?

Also, your starting chicken is suppose to start with one ability.

Map Update

Ok, so far I've put some of the insides of the Snow Village buildings and I've done some mountain/caves. Also, Issa... Who else is working on the map? Or is it just me?
Anyway, I'll post regularly to inform you all of how the map is going.

Just you, I dont want tons of hands in it. Thanks for helping with the map, it sucks drawing everything, I need to code not draw.

No problem! I don't have anything better to do in the Holidays and afternoons. Also, why don't you like mapping? It's easy. XD
Just annoying eh?
Anywho, better get back to the mapping. And you better get back to programming. >=]

Yippee!! Just checked your page! Glad you're back coding. I've downloaded the latest build and will get back to you with any bugs.

Do you want any help with the coding? I have some experience with C# and VB.NET and might be able to do some stuff over the summer.

Posted: Mon Jun 11, 2007

I am not sure what I would need, I would perfer to do all the coding myself from this point since theres no "new" code that needs to be written, just finishing up, and it would be hard to explain what needs to be finishing, its all in my head. If it was a new project I wouldnt mind the help. Thank you though.

In other news, I have been working on CF, it will be done someday, right now I am currently finishing up the map and tournaments. Next month I will have a good two weeks of coding time to put in so expect a release next month.

Hey Issa. I haven't forgotten you.

Bug reports (build 81):

- Ryu's speed enhancing ability only works for the first attack of each battle.

- When damage exceeds 1, the messages below the health bars (Oh Noes, Wham! etc.) get messed up both in number and type.


My chicken hits for more than 1 dmg. Two messages spawn:

Oh Noes!

- The help file still says "chicken fighter 2005".

- The intro lacks sprites for the second screen. (Joe)

I was not able to recreate the bug where when you attack it shows two messages, I see one. Can you please give me more information? Are you sure you are seeing two? Maybe you are seeing the opponents and yours at the same time.

Also, dont worry about help file issues right now, its not done and I dont plan to finish it until the game is completed. I might even just get rid of it and tell people to use the in game tutorial instead.

I was not able to recreate this bug, I saw the intro just fine, can you please explain what sprite did not show on the second screen?

I plan to release the next build in a few days...unfortunately it will be the last update for a very long time as I will become busy once again. But rest assured I will get the game done one day.

Whats left to do before version 1.0:

Fine tune all the chicken abilities and stats
Fine tune all the trainer abilities
Fine tune every tournament
Add music
Add bosses to gain medals and final boss
Update all areas for chicken catching
Make ending
Update help file and how too
Finalize map

What may be added after version 1.0 (if a lot of people like the game and motivate me)

Make each opponent unique so they use a certain chicken and their chickens have special stats
Add more equipment to buy for chickens
Allow you to customize your trainer

Latest build, 0.87, was released. Probably will be a while until I do some more updates. Find me bugs until then! (Note: I know some areas arent done, dont worry about that, also dont worry if you dont get the right exp or the descriptions dont show correctly for tournaments, its not done.)

Build 89:

-(Build 88 was released 2 years ago, forgot what was updated in that).
-Made title screen more clear
-Upgraded entire project from .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.5
-Fixed form load flickering! Uses a tiny bit more CPU but worth it.
-Added "click" sound for many more options when you click on them
-Minor code optimizations
-Item screen reshows items left now

Build 90:

-Upgraded entire project to use .NET 4.0 (with 2.0 legacy for DirectX9)
-Fixed out of boundary exception when you search looking down or up at the map border
-Battle: Made some fonts larger, made damage counter start higher so you can see it better
-Drawing issues: On my Windows 7, 64bit AMD QuadCore I dont see any drawing issues anymore. No clipping or sluggishness. So I will not try and optimize anymore.
