Black Omen would fit better.  That current chapter o the story starts with ocean palace but it turns to black omen near the end.  That particular room definitely sounds like it works better near the end.

Ok. I'll get this to you soon. Maybe I'll start on it this afternoon.

Minor problem at home, at least this cell phone has internet. I'll get back to work in a day or two.

Sorry.

Minor motivational problem:
I've been to sucked into playing with the Enemy AI Editor than to make the room. (which isn't always such a bad thing!)

I'll get this map done at some point soon.

haha,

Definitely not a bad thing Zakyrus :)

Hope everything is ok nightmare.  What kind of phone do you have and is this the first time you had internet on your phone.   I remember the first time I got it I was crazy addicted for like 3 weeks.

It's an Envy 2. Got it yesterday. Good news, got my laptop, bad news, not my actual computer.

I'm hiding from that asshole I've talked about before on the frustration thread.

It's taking a while to code that room. This is because:
1. I'm procrastinating and still playing with the AI Editor.
2. I'm making random perils happen in the trap (which is taking time).

When the trap is activated and you have 5 mins to find the right switch order to open the door, one of a few events are triggered:

Fire begins to fill the room.
The ceiling is coming down.
The floor is opening
The walls are closing in.
A barrier of light is sweeping through the room. (which incinerates)

Every time the trap is activated, one of these horrors will begin to happen. This way every time you play the game, something new happens here, the party reacts to it differently, and the switch order randomizes as well.
Bwa ha ha ha!  :twisted:

I finally had some time, so here is some more of 2400 AD

I tried the new tile set but still had a problem. It's too jumbled up to use.

I noticed that when i switch any tile thing-a-majing, even to already used ones, my tiles are screwed up. So I'm starting to think it's a ROM problem.

You know, one of the things I had absolutely hated was the Prehistoric map. Whoever had tried to remove the lave did a horrible job. So I present to you Phase I of the new Prehistory.

Alright nightmare is in one of his mapping zones :)

I love when these happen ha ha.  If you put up flux files i'll add what you got.  Have you confirmed if it's a rom problem?  If you give step by step what you do and put pics of the result I can tell you if I have asimilar experiences.  remember vista has the nice "snipping tool" if you just search "snip" in the start menu.

Is this how it's supposed to look?

I put circles around it because I just don't understand what went wrong.

Oh, and here's the flux file, plus an update to prehistory.

Lavos hit the ground hard, of course, that would be the cause of the massive continental shift. so in 5 years, I think he would have started some massive earthquake that would start the breaking of the super continent we all know and loved. Of course the epicenter would be the crater, so I removed it in place of a fault line. I plan to replace the mountains, just as soon as I have the ground finished.

What will The Breaking Point scene be like without the crater?
