- It's weird for me that you didn't just set it to wait for the player input instead of making it autorun there because those were just normal textboxes. If you show them the other ways, such as without the boxes, or with voice acting, etc... It's understandable and feels more fluid. But if you wanna keep it that way then yeah, maybe 1 more second is enough.
- Second point, to make it less confusing and overwhelming, pace it all out, try to make situations where you can introduce these mechanics. And have Lyne chan instruct the player more of what he should do :D This shall also apply to the story's flow.
- For the combat, i thought you have had tons of other skills and mechanics prepared to serve the player on the later part, no? So i guess with that, plus the difficulty in modifying the plugin in order to make that battle system run would be a nightmare. So better switch to other system before you go too deep. You've made a bright choice.
- Now if you say so, then hop in discordance and share the lore with me bro i've been heavily addicted to lore making for the whole month lol. For the name, if "Discordance" is something important in the lore then just keep it, i think it sounds good and unique. People might think it's a hint and wanna find out by playing the game if you introduce so. Unless you can think of a better name... need my help on that? :LZSrasp: I have gotten much better at naming after so much research done lol.

P/s: Wait, after a few hours, i suddenly recalled the "Discordance" word and realized, we did misunderstand each other real hard, dude! I meant to ask if you still use the discord app anymore. Not the game, because i've gotten a deep liking of calling that name for the discord app lmao :mrsatan:

Yep, since it's a cutscene, I thought it was a good idea to make it autorun. but well, maybe I should try using the texts that wait for the player input too and see how it looks. :D Got it, capt! XD I'll make sure to slow down the pace and take your other suggestions (including the game tutorial the blend in during the gameplay) into account. Yeah, it doesn't need a god-tier observation ability to see where the previous battle system will take me. Hahaha yep, me too. I've got a lot of things to discuss, I'll be there and catch up with you sometime soon! :D

It takes guts and humility to make such sweeping changes to a project. Your graphic designs are quite striking, and I think you did a great job on the hud elements. I'll be closely watching your progress.

ELMSPHERE LINK

Each Elmsphere is working in conjunction with other equipped Elmsphere. It means, you'll get new mantra if you have 2 Elmspheres equipped in slots that are next to each other. For examples, if you equipped two Wind Elmspheres next to each other, it'll give you a mantra that can be learned from Gale Elmsphere (Wind + Wind = Gale), if you equipped a Fire Elmsphere next to Flare Elmsphere, it'll give you a mantra with Blaze elemental (Flare + Fire = Blaze).

Great work, based off the youtube videos!

Some constructive criticism: while walking left and right, the character looks like he is just shuffling his feet across the ground, and not lifting his legs. Also, when he is running left and right it looks as if he is on an elliptical.

Thank you so much! Yes, I don't like that running animation either,
the character looks like he's on roller skates.lol

I've been trying to fix that by removing or adding more frames
to each charset motion, and searching for another spritesheet
that has fluid animation. But the result was worse than expected. XD

No problem.

Yeah, animation can be tough. Perhaps try rotoscoping a real person with the camera angle you want the character to be at.

Gameplay Update~

BATTLE SYSTEM


BARRIER POINTS
Similar to Hit Points, except you CAN'T restore barrier points by resting or sleeping.
You must repair your Astral Raid Armor to restore the BP a character has. Strategical
decisions are needed before you go out for a mission or monster hunting.

ACTION POINTS
You'll spend AP to do everything in this game. Daily activities like eating,
sleeping, take a bath & studying cost small amount of AP. But heavy work like
monster hunting, mantra casting & doing part time jobs cost great amount of it.
Manage your AP wisely the whole day.

ELEMANTRA GAUGE
Basically it's TP in the default system. It has similar mechanic, Elemantra Gauge
will be filled in the battle. Battle action such as Attacking, defending and casting
specific Mantra will give you more points. You'll spend Elemantra Gauge to cast
Core Mantra and Full Sync Mantra.

Mantra (or skill) is divided into 4 Category :

ELEMANTRA
You can learn this mantra from various Elmspheres that can be equipped
to your Elemantra Caster device. Each Elmsphere has its own specific
mantra, such as offensive magic, supportive magic and unique command.

CORE MANTRA
You can learn this mantra from TEC Virtual Trainer. But first, you must
buy more VT Cards at shop to unlock each VT Ability. Player's team may
well have different styles of core mantra.

FULL SYNC MANTRA
It's the Ultimate Mantra. A set of abilities that also unique to each character.
They function similarly to Core Mantra but far stronger. Your characters can
summon Elemantra Spirits or perform devastating combo. This type of mantra
consumes Elemantra Gauge.

STRATEGY
It refers to a character's row during combat, which boosts some basic stats and
affects overall performance. All characters have a set of strategic abilities that
can change their row and fight as Berserker, Attacker, Observer, Defender or Ranger.
Higher Aggression Meter means higher PWR and INT. But in turn, END and RNG
are reduced. There are some abilities that can change enemy's row too.

LIVENEL Gameplay Update!

I added a minimap feature called Obscure (Previously, it was for Active Time Event purpose). This minimap will show character's position, bed/rest, shops and transvault locations. NPC and treasure chests are excluded because I change their location more often than anything else.



And, here's another set of abilities called Strategy. These abilities not only change row and give stats boost to both sides, but also give buffs, debuffs and heals. During combat, manageability of Strategy is a crucial issue, switching ally's row or enemy's row in many different situation is more important than spamming Mantra / Attack.

End of May | Game Design and Character Update.


+ I added another Scan mantra for Lucain. Previously, you may only learn this spell
from Sense Elmsphere, now it's one of Lucain's default spell under Overdrive category.
+ I polished some maps to make it more sensible in perspective. (And yet, I still have
a pretty long to-do list for this!)
+ I added Eidart as the second playable character during the first chapter of the game.
+ Now the weapon for the main character is called Mythbuster. Previously, it was called
Elemantra Caster.XD

*Eidart's pose is still entirely inconsistent when he performs some actions,
i.e. his Hell Judgement. :( I'll get to work on it right away.

Hello. Thanks for the kind words! Yes, both Lucain and Eidart
are given the same type body armors that increase their barrier points.
The rest of the characters will have different armor/costume. :)

Hey @Pharonix, just wondering what you're up to lately and if you've had an opportunity to check out the LTBS thread in the past few days...(a couple of us could really use your expertise). Hope you are well and Happy Thanksgiving!
