Well, at least it gives an idea on what the game would look like if it was in color.

So I encountered (and fixed) a nasty bug the original game suffered from:

If you take on Phthia BEFORE encountering the Siren in Laconia AND use the
Pegasus to get there - the Siren will appear using the Cyclops tiles!

Here is how to reproduce the bug - using the original Battle of Olympus for GB:

1. Enter the password
Code: [Select]
9K0ZDCH JYLSJ19 T14F1WY 1CS2VVP
2. Exit the temple and make your way back to the right.


3. Continue pass the exit and keep heading right.


4. Use the Harp to summon the Pegasus.


5. When you drop down in Laconia - head right.


6. Summon a dolphin and continue right.


7. Behold the mighty messed up Siren!


After some debugging and tracing,here is the simple fix:
At rom-offset 8128, change: 34 -> 6B

I still have some testing to do, to make sure the fix works at all times and that it does not mess up the cyclops in some other place - but I feel rather certain this bug is fixed!

Yeah - I also tweaked the map a bit, to make more ocean between Ruto and Tantari,
since you are supposed to travel there by boat. That's probably why I decided to color it - to see if I could improve upon it further.



Might get some script editing done tomorrow...

To Mr. @dACE,

Can you give us a guesstimate (%) on the progress of this hack?

You know, dACE. I kind of find it funny that the developers of the Game Boy port of Battle of Olympus really did a rushed job in the graphics and coding department -- the fact that they just leave it in as is, it is just ridiculous.

Well - it's a mixed bag.

Sure, the developers responsible for the port, did leave some 'easy to spot' and 'easy to fix' bugs
- but on the other hand they managed to get the script in five different languages in there.

The ambition of this project is not only to transform it into a Zelda game, but also to address all the bugs of the original.
Therefore it is hard to estimate how much work is left.

Ran into another ugly bug in Phthia, here is how to recreate it:

Use the password from the previous bug-report and make your way to the right until you get to this screen:


If you walk up and down the stairs, the screen will blink as if new tiles are loaded into RAM.
Within a minute or two, while continuing to walk up and down these stairs - the game will break and do one of two things:

1. The player-sprite will be all messed up.


OR

2. The stairs will be transported to a different screen altogether.


Now, I only managed to recreate this bug using the emulator BGB - In VisualBoy I have successfully walked up and down those stairs for 3 minutes (and above) without anything crashing. This have me thinking that the bug ONLY appears in BGB - but I can't tell for sure.

If anyone tries to recreate this bug, please let me know which emulator you used.

For now, I'm leaving this as it is - assuming it is a bug in BGB.

Made some final adjustments to the inventory screen (and colorized it for fun)

The more I test the above bug - the more I'm confident that it is only in BGB it happens.

Every starcase that makes the screen blink (load tiles into RAM) has the potential to break the game in BGB.

Isn't BGB supposed the more accurate emulator so might be a "game bug" after all?
Do you have the possibility to test this in hardware?

Sure, it can be a bug originating from within the game-code and the fact that BGB is 'more accurate' is what brings the game to a crash.

No, I dont have a IRL GameBoy and a copy of Battle of Olympus - if anyone has: please check out this bug and report back.

I will test the game in gameYob (emulator for the DS) - if it works flawless in that emu as well as VisualBoy, I'm blaming this one on BGB.

/dACE

February 02, 2016, 03:58:37 am - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
I have verified that the game works properly in visualBoy (WIN) and gameYob (DS) - by walking up and down those stairs for at least 10 minutes - without any anomalies happening.

If you check the below box in BGB - the emulator will break execution in ONE of the cases - when the sprites are messed up:


However, the other anomaly (when the staircase is teleported to another screen) can not be traced with any other check-box on this options tab in BGB.

Bottom line:
Until anyone can report back how the game performs on REAL hardware - I'm considering this a BGB specific issue and will not investigate it further.

Everything looks great and I love this idea. It's really one of the more unique ideas I've seen in a while.

My only criticism is that I feel like Link's sprite needs some work. In the color pic you just posted, the king and Zelda look well done, but there are parts of Link that need a little refining, particularly his arm (it looks fat and stiff) and his standing position (pictured) looks too much like a half walking position.

Well, that's because it is his 'half-walking' position.

There are only so many stances available in the original rom you see...

As for the arm - I'm open for suggestions. Post your version and I'll consider it.

Hey, dACE. Are the sprites in question going to be similar to Zelda 2 - The Adventure of Link on the NES or they will be something completely different?

Everything looks great and I love this idea. It's really one of the more unique ideas I've seen in a while.

My only criticism is that I feel like Link's sprite needs some work. In the color pic you just posted, the king and Zelda look well done, but there are parts of Link that need a little refining, particularly his arm (it looks fat and stiff) and his standing position (pictured) looks too much like a half walking position.

Speaking of Zelda 2, here is a spritesheet of Link's from the game for study. Notice his walking stance and the way his arm is positioned when he is holding his sword and shield in the game:

The player sprites are modelled after the original:



I've actually tried different variations to his visible arm, but found this version to look the best.

I see, dACE. So the sprites are modeled after the original design and Link's arm is very detailed compared to the original game. Any updates on the game, so far?

Since the last two locations would push the post past the character limit,
I guess they have to be a surprise.

The script is by all means not final and I will work on it some more.

Nice job, dACE! I like how you added some references to previous (and some current) LoZ games, especially from the first and second ones on the NES. Regarding the passwords, dACE - are you replacing it with a save feature (SRAM) like Link's Awakening?

It's only been about two months. Regardless, if nothing's been posted, that doesn't mean it's been canned. More likely there's nothing new or interesting to show right now, just testing and such.

Do you know that this game does have NES version too?  Do you think you can make in NES version too?
Are you huge fan of Megaman Xtreme 2?   Then check this progress of Remastered version!

Nope - I ain't touching the NES original, that is another project - for someone else.

I'm currently working on something really special. If I can make it work - it's going to be awesome. Hopefully I will be able to post about it soon...
