How did you get a working 8x8 (or smaller?) VWF for the techniques and items? Nice touch.

Also, I think you should try and get the three fonts in the game (8x8, 8x8 VWF and 8x12 VWF) to match as much as possible. They kinda clash right now. >_>;

Borrowed some of the coding from the Finnish version of Chrono Trigger.

I have no idea really how all of this VWF coding even works nor do I plan on going through all of it just to figure it out.  Too much hassle to do at the moment.

Plus, the VWF is kind of boggy right now due to the coding or something, so it's best just to leave it right now unless we find some other method that works better.

I actually made a bold version of the 8x8 font for usage in the rest of the menu, but it was shot down because of something. I don't remember. What I most vividly remember is Justin saying "...but if we get more letters in the menu, then fuck yeah, we're using it."

The extra space for more letters was absolutely needed with how lengthy the descriptions people were giving everything.

Tifa's portrait looks MUCH better.  The way the attack is pulled off is also pretty nifty.  If only that bug wasn't there then it'd be outstanding.  Great job nonetheless!

An equipable crossbow in FFVI, with an annoying bug which makes it unusable. >_>;

This was very well done, but I have to comment again about font. That VWF looks nice and all, except at that time period when there's snow on the ground. You need to change it somehow (say, bold it, or something) to make it stand out more from the snow itself. Very hard to read in the current state.

The rest of the stuff was awesome.

New font, new menu borders and a custom item with custom graphics.

Neat, glitches aside. You should try making more custom weapons like that, but not so powerful, that use esper/blitz/sword tech effects as attacks.

I'll see if I can do something of that sort.  Only idea I can think of use random extra letters to represent it, but I don't think there's enough room.  I think the Finnish version pulled that off though..so I'll have to check that out again.

Edit: Nope.  There's just have a random unused font in there for whatever reason. :/

Justin, thank You for the video, this was really exciting!
When Lucca and that villager started to move that boulder... at first I thought they would just push it back and forth. :crazy:
As for suggestions on the dungeon. How about making it more black-and-whiteish? The whole “when-I'm-sick-I-don't-care-for-colours-topos”.

And about that personal project thread. I'd love to see that, as long as it is not spread around to other forums extensively. The CE-trauma is still working somewhere inside of me...

I was originally going to have the boulder be a sprite of it's own and they'd move that, but for whatever reason on that ONE map, the boulder sprite just wouldn't load.  So I had to bump it into a custom tile for that tile set.  I'm very lucky too, there was exactly 16 tiles left, perfect amount of what was needed.

I'm holding off slightly on the project for now for college reasons, plus there's a chance with the new thing coming up, I'll have to redo the entire project from start again for organization reasons, plus for certain reasons that will be seen if it can get finished ;]

Oh, it will. It's just a matter of when. And your project will be that much more awesome because of it.

Well, it's not just for our project, it's for anyone's in general..It'll definitely be a breakthrough that has been needed for years.  Plus really, none of this could be done without you Mauron.

I'm definitely redoing the big dialogue font... I'm taking whoever's comment about the fonts not matching to heart; I'll PM you with it when I finish, Justin.

That's true, but your project will probably be the first to demonstrate it, which just adds to the awesome.

I'm tempted to say what this is, and make a video or screenshots of my own, but I'll let you decide that one. You're the only one actively using it right now.

Oh by all means go for it.  It's mostly your work, so you do what you want with it.  I'm game for anything.  [ I think i will break this off into a personal project thread, there's quite a bit of discussion for this ]

Same story and some of the same characters.  Things were being changed as it was "progressing".  The only thing now, I completely lost where I put my storyline changes and stuff so I'll be redoing most of this, but I have a pretty clear idea of what I'm going to do for a preview.  Just need to find or create a new damn tileset that would work for the futuristic look.

As I said in the video notes, this is nothing final. I wanted a video out, and one that clearly showed Magus acting in the Tech.
