Man, things are getting better! Excellent this update for Maxim!
Is there any planning to create a story mode version for Maxim?
Would it be possible to bring Justex's idle animation to Juste? (maybe Justex's color palette too)
I like Justex, his animation, and everything. I always imagined what it would be like to have a story mode, but what drives me crazy in the Justex gameplay mode, is its speed, in fact the knock back that he suffers when he receives damage makes the game quite frustrating. Would it be possible to adjust this? or at least slow it down?
Hello verme, yes and no for a Maxim story mode. While it would not be possible to create a story mode for Maxim when you load his character, it IS possible to switch Juste and Maxim, so that Juste loads in to the extra mode, and Maxim loads in to story mode (though extra refinements have to be made to allow proper progress for Maxim in the castle, as he can’t use certain abilities).
Having said that, keep an eye out for a separate patch to a vanilla HoD rom for a Maxim Story mode, 😉. I’ve been collaborating on one with caminopreacher.
Oh, and regarding JUSTEX, yes those changes are possible, but it was the original hackers’ intent to have JUSTEX behave in that manner as far as speed, the animations, knock back, etc to differentiate him from Regular Juste and have a different gameplay experience, so I won’t be making Juste more like JUSTEX unfortunately.
