Ever feel singled out because you do your best and even after checking everything thoroughly there are problems?
Ever make a last minute change to a hack that inadvertently made it unplayable?
Ever feel like you just can't win?
Well it happens sometimes, as it has with my project, final phantasy star: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/855/
The funny thing is that games do make it with bugs despite insane efforts. Final Fantasy was made by a full cast of programmers and still contained many
numerous and important bugs that made many of the spells and battle related features completely useless. The ironic thing here is that I have corrected all of those problems, but in doing so there are a couple of things which can't be helped, like little swords on the title, xp appearing where lv 8 spell should on magic screen in world, little stuff like that. At least these
do not affect anything important.
Its irritating that no matter how hard I try I'm always going to miss something and wind up embarassing myself somewhere. So I have to remind myself, even 100 people doing their best doesn't guarantee absolute perfection. Nevertheless it sucks and is embarassing and never fails to generate reviews that ignore the 99% that is good and focus on the 1% that cannot be helped. To make matters worse I had to upload a new version because after my playthough I changed one stupid chest that made it unplayable (in the very beginning fortunately) because an npc doesn't give you a certain quest item properly as I had assumed.
I couldn't even get the readme file to look what I wanted. That's mainly because what I see in text on notepad is different from what it looks like online, therefore it is impossible to format the tabs, lines, spaces, and page breaks the way I would prefer, and most of the info is copied from tables in works.
