    Default State of Topaz: February 20th, 2010

    Early SoT nowai!

    Firstly, you may have noticed that Badara, our new programmer, has been going around with a nifty green name. That's because he is our newest Valued Topaz Contributor! Though he got it really quick, I have to admit that he definitely deserves it.

    Allow me to demonstrate.








    Alright, now that we're all done squealing, let's start again!



    All together now!

    Wait, wait, what was strange in that screenie? Well, it may or may not (actually probably the latter because that will probably later be the bank) mean that there could be some kind of card game built into the game. No, there isn't, is there?



    Look at what Badara found in Poccil's! For those who've played FF8, it's basically Triple Triad: Pokemon Style. I'm getting this strange buzzing feeling... It must be all the possibilities that come with minigames! This looks like something for the Game Corner or perhaps there could even be a card game league in Caldera/Kirant! You could find cards around, buy them, win them from people, anything! Soon enough I'll put up a topic where we can discuss possible uses for the game.

    Another cool thing built into Poccil's is an overworld battle system, where you get to Jump and Bash Pokemon with other enemy Pokemon. It really sounds like it could fit into Icthyes Game Corner, considering that you could maybe bet on your Pokemon and get Coins to trade in for cool prizes!

    Finally, Badara also found a Pokegear system built into Poccil's, including the CD system we wanted. He says he'll try to see what kind of apps he can come up with, and there could be an app store or things like that. PokeApple, anyone?

    Also, a few images have gotten officialized (as in actually uploaded to the Topaz Photobucket). I'm sure you've already seen:

    Made by PikangX, DracoNyon and finished up by Reliability, but Reliability's

    Is now official, as well as X-Antibody's


    Before the forum crash, DracoNyon came up with awesome Quiisord concept art. You can check that out on our site or just look down a bit:

    By the way, it's also official now.

    Pokedex Entries are still bustling on nicely, though ragingprimeape (and me by extension) has issued out a request to get the ones required for the demo done quickly. These are:
    020/Sandshrew
    021/Sandslash
    026/Spoink
    027/Grumpig
    030/Pineco
    031/Forretress
    034/Mankey
    035/Primeape
    036/Mareep
    037/Flaafy
    038/Ampharos
    042/Tauros
    043/Miltank
    054/Growlithe
    064/Murkrow
    055/Arcanine
    (@ragingprimeape: You can update the numbers now in your topic, the dex numbers are done)
    Thanks to everyone who's been working on these!

    Also, for the demo there are some things I had forgotten about that still need to be done. Firstly, Professor Willow needs a trainer sprite. Second, we need overworlds (basic walking ones) for Bradley, Simon, Vincent and Professor Willow. Finally, there's move animations! (And maps, but Nokeeo is working on those)

    Move animations require you to have RPGMakerXP and Poccil's Essentials Kit, google them up if you want to find them. Poccil's Essentials has a move editor that allows you to make moves, then once you've done one, zip it up and upload it to Topaz Graphics. This is one of the last big things we need to do for the demo, I encourage you all to try it!

    And of course, on the forum and website side of things, zeroality has been on a roll. If you check the site you'll see the newsfeed is back up. We have nifty new forum subicons. Lots of our information is back up. IRC is working really well, allowing really productive conversations and such... drop by, you never know when you'll stumble upon the annals of progress!

    A collectable card game. In Topaz. That actually works. In the demo. Which is coming soon.

    (M. Bison voice)

    YES!

    YES!

    Things are looking up!

    EDIT: Tripal Triad? It reminds me Tetra Master from Final Fantasy 9, as opposed to 8....then again, it might be the same thing...(though 9's gamegrid is 4X4).

    Hey all right! It's good to know that we've had enough stuff get done that another SOT was needed so soon after the last one! I'll go change those numbers real quick.

    Awesomeness!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    too bad my Wolvine sprite isn't finished enough to be officialized...

    Edit: also, Kunaiga sprite thing for Topaz.exe thing is nice, but i think there should be a folder with images like that for all the Topazmon, that way people could use their favorite one for the .exe file...just a suggestion though...

    Note that the demo is still quite a ways away from completion... I was going to mention that in the SoT but forgot. (Hype is delicious but dangerous if you have too much, I guess). However, with how good a programmer Badara seems to be and his obvious eagerness to work on this I think that we'll be making some very good progress.

    That's a nice gesture but our server costs are low enough that we do not need to accept donations or have ads up. You can help out by being an active poster instead.

    First, this isn't the thread to introduce yourself...its here.
    Go there and talk about what all you can do. From that, life gets going good. (Believe me, when I started here, I couldn't do a thing, but now, I'm all over.)
    DO U LIKE WATER????? then u like 75% of me.

    Water type is the god of all. Johto will always be the best region ever (though topaz's Caldera & Kirant will be 2nd)

    I'm going to go ahead and lock this since it's quite old and another SOT will be coming out fairly soon.
