Hello guys! In God’s goodness, here’s another short 2 hours long RMVXace game that I made while I paused development on Rave Heart for a while. xD This short is made as an entry for the RPG maker 28th birthday, Full game category. :) I really enjoyed making this game and I sure hope that you guys will also enjoy playing it. ^_^

In the isolated town of Karonna, there was a young boy named Faint. Born as a half-Elf, half-Fairy, his compassionate nature lead him to dream of serving the people of Karonna. With the assistance of his friends, Rue and Kailah, he forms his own guild.

With monsters attacking the people of Karonna continuously, Faint's new guild is put to the test. Can they prove their worth to the mayor, and overcome this challenge? What other challenges could await them?

Congrats on getting an entry in. The game looks gorgeous. I started playing it and it plays really nice. No spelling or grammar errors that were obvious. The characters are fun. Exploring the map was very rewarding. I got lost in just wandering around and talking to everyone, I forgot where I was supposed to go. I chased butterflies for 5 minutes to see if I could catch one :guffaw:
The only thing was the game died a couple times- it froze when coming out of the church and crashed coming out of the shop. Right now I didn't play any further to see if there was anything else, but probably will at a later date.
A lot of fun, but there might be some memory issues, I don't know :kiss:

Hi @Andreyla ! Thank you so much for playing the game and for your kind words! ^_^ I'm glad that you enjoyed exploring around town haha xD :D

Also, I cannot seem to replicate any errors in my end and haven't found one so far during my testing. x(( Can you tell me what the crashes/errors say? (If there are any pop-ups at all.) Thanks a lot Andreyla! I really appreciate it! ^^

@Starmage my pleasure :D
I don't think it was to do with the locations so much as how long I was going around exploring. I wasn't kidding when I said I was wandering around. I was talking to every NPC and looting every crate for a good half hour before I got any errors at all. Then when I walked out of the church the game froze (just said game not responding in the top of the window) until it finally started again. Instead of restarting the game I just kept playing, walked into the shop, bought some stuff and when I walked out I got the same game not responding message and it crashed.
I played it on Windows 10, Republic of Gamers Laptop. If it helps any, I'll let you know my specs:
Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz
8GB RAM
NVidia GeForce GTX 960M

@Andreyla - Ahh I see! Now I get it, could be a little memory burn-out ( but don't take it from me, Andreyla, I'm no expert in computer tech xD). Have you tried saving and restarting the game? :) Because I also encounter the game not responding freeze sometimes on other games, and I realize that I just needed to cool off the game (this usually happens when I keep the game open for too long. xD ).

Also, if you have other programs running while playing, it should probably help if they're turned off for a while. :)

I hope that restarting the game can help fix the problem. xD Feel free to let me know, Andreyla. Thank you so much! ^^

Hi guys!! I've updated the game to do some improvements to the mappings and some error fixes! ^__^

Version 1.5 download:

*Link removed. See thread for new version.*

Changes

- Maps from interiors to exteriors have been updated and improved.

- Lighting strength on the town has been reduced, while Ayala forest's lighting has been removed completely.

- New title screen

- There will no longer be states such as Paralyze and Sleep on the game, this is to remove game errors that were specifically connected to these states. (Script issues)

- A few dialogues have been rewritten.


Special thanks to everyone who has helped me with their feedback on my mapping as well as some useful tips and advice. You all know who you are. ^_^

Hi guys! Here's another update for Elf's Diary! ^_^ This is a whole bunch of bug fixes that I've missed on the previous version, hopefully, they have all been eliminated now and that this will be the final update. xD Don't worry, if you have a save from the previous version, it should still work if used in this version. :)

Changes:

Version 2.0

- Big fixes on Church, where a party member speaks when he/she still isn't supposed to be in the party.

- Removed the Paralyze effects on the Lamia Boss' attacks, as I have mentioned on the previous update, Paralyze and sleep effects are to removed completely in the game to remove game-breaking errors.

- More dialogue improvisations.

- New item sold by the rare merchant (Forgot to mention in the previous version).

- Final boss difficulty increased by a little

- Windowskin's color has been adjusted to make it less bright.

Download:

*Link removed. See thread for new version.*


EDIT:

Yay! I've just finished my newb trailer entry for Elf's Diary on the RPG Maker 28th bday event! ^_^


Forgive me for its short-ness xDD

I have a quick question. What font is that in the menu and the battles?

Also, this reminds me that I need to make a game trailer soon! XD

Hi Thomas!! The font used is "pf_tempesta_seven" I'm not exactly sure where I got it from, all I know is that it was just lying on my drive when I found it. xD

And yep! Go make some trailer, Thomas! ^_^
