That's not going to work I MEAN DP IS A GOOD DUDE and reliable and stuff. But my faith in this project ever being completed is kinda....... dead.

Im sure there are some people willing to finish off cg4. It's only the end that has to be done, right? I'll give it a shot myself if necessary. Heck it could be released unfinished if worst comes to worst.

I sent it to Mirthless. Sorry guys! I blew it.

What ended up happening is I spent a week and half playing through the game multiple times writing down plot points and fixing every bug I found. I then implemented the face sets to be in every chapter. Then I did a Chapter System through the save points. I then started the credits and got most of it done. I just couldn't for the life of me get the last chapter finished. Then my internet was turned off for 2 months.
Below are things I've taken part to create:

Channel Changer 1-3 Complete
Easy Mac Complete
Easy Mac 2
Last Legend

Erave thanks for your hard work until now, I know something like this can be quite overwhelming. To everyone else: I will do my best to wrap everything up nicely and deliver a product that is "up there" in quality. I know I have not released anything before for you to see my potential but please have faith, if I didn't think I could do it I wouldn't ask in the first place. I will have it done by [AT ][/AT] April 16th.

I have finished playing through the entire game. I debugged, balanced, fixed, corrected, tied and tuned up everything, all that's left to do is to actually DO the last chapter which I shall begin shortly. I tried to tie everything up (plot-wise) but as a Chain Game, it is in its nature to have some plot-holes. Overall the game is fun and entertaining and surprisingly enough the story keeps you tied up like you WANT to know what will happen next. I'm surprised. (Hehe I'm trying to build up some hype before I get done). SO YEA, LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

Just a little update here... I have finished the script for the final chapter and it is not short. It can't be short if I want to tie the humongous amount of plot lines concisely. I have made progress to about 1/8 of the total planned script and I'm currently coding a minigame so there's still a bit to go. I have spent most the time playing through the game several times, fixing dialog errors and obvious, easy-to-fix plot holes. I have made other people (real life friends) play through the game as well and inform me every single bug they find and there's been a bunch, spent a lot of time fixing those too. There's a small problem though, I have finals at the end of the month so this last couple of weeks are going to be very busy for me. I don't want to rush this, I want to exploit this game to its full potential. Bottom line, I have decided to move the release date from April 16th to Saturday May 9th. This is THE final release date. Not a day earlier, not a day later. Thank you for your patience guys. I know it's been several months but 'hey!' at least something is actually being done now and the game is not at stall! :)

Everything is going as planned. I didn't have any time at all to work on this during finals (as I expected) so moving the release date was the right choice. I am making progress now. In 3 days everything will be ready just like I promised.

I find myself coding the final battle now... I'm perfectionist to a flaw, I don't want to release it until I'm sure it will blow the player away. One thing is bothering me a whole lot: I can't find a sprite for the final boss, I'm using a monster pic from the RTP in the meanwhile. Now, this could be either a really good idea or a really bad idea: Ask the community to draw a final boss for CG4, since it's a community game and stuff... I suppose some people would be happy to have their boss used and credit given in such a game? Anything will do really... I prefer a bad-looking original monster made by the community than a good-looking one taken from the RTP package.
I missed the damn deadline, I've been going out with friends all damn week (even against my will xD) but it's almost finished. I just need to finish coding the final battle (set death conditions), do the closing dialog after that and do one final play through of the whole game (I've gotten quite fast at it >_>).


- Edit -
I posted this:
http://www.gamingw.net/forums/index.php?topic=78883
Hopefully someone will be willing to draw something original! Although that post looks stupid now that I read it. I'm really bad at requesting stuff. >_>

PS: I'm 1/4th into my last play-through. Anyone willing to test the whole game in one day (it could take you about 5 hours so plan accordingly) send me a PM. I will not send the game to just anyone, you will have to convince me that you can play through the whole thing in one day and that you will absolutely not send it to anyone, anyone at all.

omfg fixing so much dialogue... my brain is gonna blow. Nessiah how do you contradict yourself so much in your own chapter WTF? You named two characters the same. You also started the gender-confusion trend that follows in the next chapters lol this is hilarious. I don't even know who's male anymore. O_O BOOOOM
Disregard all that, I was just venting a little after spending like 10 hours straight working on this. I'm still pissed at not making the deadline by this much.
I'm 3/4th into my last run. I had to start over again when I came across a bug that didn't let me go on. Almost there... I'm also waiting for some more final boss submissions.
