Hello, and welcome to the AGTP Megathread! As I devote myself to particular projects, they'll get posted into this thread. (Small bits and bobs might still get posted to the screenshots thread, though!)

For absolutely bleeding-edge updates, see twitter or Discord. For major milestones, see the AGTP website.

Changelog:

Original thread first post follows:

Currently, the game of the moment is "Aretha Gaiden: Rejoice ~Another Aretha Kingdom~" which I'm simply labling "Rejoice: An Aretha Fable" mostly because there's no way I'm fitting "Another Aretha Kingdom" into the tiny little spritetext on the title screen without mangling it horribly. Thanks to everyone on the language board (and a huge thanks they are) the game now contains 100% English text, though a fair bit of the dialog is probably crashy at the moment. Most of it is unedited as well; I'd guesstimate by sheer line numbers that I've gone through about 2/9s of the script, fixing things up. Almost all of the technical issues have been resolved.

The currently unfixed technical/asm issues include...
--The first time you load an item description, it *always* seems to load the very first description instead of the correct description.
--If the cursor is on "A" in the rename menu and you cancel out to the alphabet selection and go right back into the Roman letter set (which is currently the only letter set in the game), it will jump to F for some reason.

Depending on free time and motivation, I could probably have the rest of the script edited in a week or so, and beta would begin immediately after.

Here are some sample images...

Demon Lord Howard is the main antagonist from the GB Aretha games. Doll also appears in pretty much every Aretha game. There's also some plot stuff apparently surrounding the makeup of the main party, including what is essentially a magical, walking-talking doll that joins up at one point, but I won't spoil who that is.

I don't have anything particularly useful to say, but I yearn to gaze upon The Megathread!

Being serious, the text looks amazing, menus look beautiful, and I really like the *speaker's name* is that your personal touch?
"Remember when we were in Japan? You said you were my gun, if you're the gun then that means I'm the bullet."

"All my life I've been waiting for the gunpowder to go off, you know what you need to ignite gunpowder? You need a gun."

Gideon Zhi

In the original Japanese it was more along <<Speaker's Name>> lines. The stars just seemed cleaner.

The progress from those screen shots looks great, along with the Ys V ones too. I'm curious about how to beat that ice cube boss though at the beginning... If you attack it, it will just keep displaying the same message again and again. Are you suppose to just dodge its attacks for a certain amount of time without attacking it...? I find it a bit strange though to add a boss fight at the very beginning.
"Truly, if there is evil in this world, it lies within the heart of mankind."

Gideon Zhi

That fight's unwinnable. When the enemy flashes, the color it flashes indicates its health - blue for strong health, yellow for medium, red for weak, and white for a deflected attack. You'll notice that as soon as the boss flashes yellow, it talks at you then starts flashing blue again. Just walk into it and get Millrose killed if you want to progress :p

The game of the day is Lady Stalker! Did a bunch of work on this over the last few days, getting interfaces looking good and replacing the intro (finally!) Here are some screenshots of some dialog action:





And youtube link to the opening cinematic.

About the Aretha Gaiden screens... I do hope you'll fix that status screen name font, Gid.

Btw, is there going be a 2nd "o" in the chefs name?

This thread hasn't been updated for over 7 years... although there was a site update around a year ago that said it hadn't been forgotten about. I wouldn't hold your breath, though. :)
