so i've seen a couple threads on this board dedicated to things we don't like or are tired of seeing. so how about the opposite?

what sort of locations/effects/etc do you love seeing in fangames? things you can't get enough of?

(pic related - i love aquatic locations)

I love puzzles a la 2kki. Another thing that I enjoy is chill worlds.

 No.10815

I like it when there's things to do in the waking world. Urotsuki's several games of different genres is pretty neat. I want to see more of that kind of thing in the future - give you stuff to do while you're "resting" in your home.

 No.10820

the kura puzzles in yume 2kki are super relaxing for me, it's just fun to idly play them while the BGM plays and to have some ambient music (like, asmr or rainyday) in the background.

wataru's maps can be really relaxing too

when .flow .192 came out I actually liked the new areas because they expanded on a theme that was only recently being touched upon and I thought that was neat

I like big city-ish areas, vending areas too… There's a bazaar in Farewell which is nice, and I'm a sucker for Zenmaigahara Store in Y2kki. When that .flow update had outfit changes I was pretty pumped too.

I know everyone hates them because they're cliche, but I do like YNFG reference rooms. Except one game's room.

De I Cide had a speed adjustment for the chariot and that needs to be in more games. Also, in Book End your speed effect is a tricycle and it's the greatest thing ive ever seen probably not really but hey why not, man

It's also an unappealing clusterfuck of visuals. While I agree on maps' type (no looping and sometimes small areas), they're often very unclear.

It seems to be another method of pissing players off. Instead of making looped maps, just make closed locations where you can't distinguish floor from wall.

this is such a broad question you could write "extremely bad" and it'd still be a valid answer

there are… a lot of fangames that have really bad graphics in my opinion, or bad design in general that make it hard for me to want to play them. my advice to aspiring pixel-game-makers is to take a few months at the *least* studying pixel art, doing a few one-a-day studies, etc.

Yume 2kki does this pretty often in some places like. Sign World, Bug Maze… they're all pretty "eugh" to me in terms of art.

In my opinion, you can never have too many fangames.
A fun thing about fangames is that just about every different creator has a different style to their games, so just making a game would make it unique. Try releasing a small demo at first. Maybe make a blog to show stuff you're working on but haven't completed. Just remember that as long as you stay confident, your games will be competent.

U-um… hi guys…! I'm working with my best friend Jessie and our game is called Wakana Nikki! ^^; The plot is going to be very dark σ(oдolll) because the plot is about our protagnoist, Mimotsuki, who is possessed by the ghost of her best friend Madotsuki after her suicide. ╹⌓╹ so now she's compelled to go into her own dreams and discover who she really is with the guidance of her best friend Madotsuki. ( -_-)

Were still developing it since we started in Febrary or something I think.owo We have 24 effects planned and we have a lot implemented alteady. We have a lot of cool events! Um… we have somebody making music for us too. Some things you need to know before you play is that this has a lot of blood and gore and it's not for the faint of heart! (・o・;) Look at our dev blog here! Jessie manages it http://kurorosechan6.tumblr.com/

So something that annoys me a bit is that no one mentioned these 2 fangames, at least not once on the new boards.
These fangames are called nostAlgic and Parade.

So, nostAlgic + Parade thread go!

http://loda.jp/tom_511/ nostAlgic (new uploader)
http://ux.getuploader.com/giogio0625_hasei/ Parade
nostAlgic is actually one of the most frequently updated fangames around, though I think it's sometimes somewhat a small update.

I'm quite ashamed to say that I actually haven't played either games, and as usual my stroll on ubuu is just before I'm going off, so hopefully I'll play both tomorrow (and as per usual, [at least for old ubuu] I'll flood this thread with screens).
So if you guys beat me to it, have fun.

Hi, I'm a newcomer here but have lurked a small, teensy while. We (my dev partner in crime and I) have a game in the works that I believe is far enough along that it'd be worth sharing here.
To be frank, this started out as a fangame but veers further and further from that initial vision. I believe it shares an artistic vision with fangames in that we want to make the player explore and keep playing to see more of the game's visuals, but otherwise it may be more akin to something like Space Funeral for example. There is a traditional RPG system and focus on gameplay with more defined goals and minigames, and we've tried our hardest to make it actually fun and another reason to want to keep playing. If it doesn't fit here, I understand and apologize.
Without saying much more, we try to give this game an identity with the hand-drawn aesthetic and more focus on humor without resorting to being offensive or tasteless. There is also a far more concrete plot, but it is absent from this demo- which you can grab here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/p8wkhmk0br4sq2j/Eulogy%20of%20an%20Insect.exe?dl=0

I'm currently developing a game in unity and wanted to ask help from this board in particular. I'm not quite yet ready to show anything yet (everything is in early stages at the moment you can only move and cycle through a test effect menu as well as use a few test effects) but I wanted to get feedback on certain things.

In a month or two I will present the more intricate details about this game, and its style.

Here are a few things that I've finished or am confidant in saying:

The game handles pretty much exactly as Yume Nikki handles.

The perspective is similar to the perspective in RPG maker simply in 3D. This gives a bit more freedom in regards to camera angles.

The Effects menu is now a small scrolling set of items which can be cycled using "Q" and "E" alternatively if you're using the YN control scheme you can cycle through the menu using "A" and "D".

When all of the visual GUI components are completed, the menu will present itself visually as a thought bubble above the player's head. There, three items are shown, the Effect you're currently using, the effect before it and the effect after it. The menu will endlessly cycle and is smoothly animated. You can confirm your choice using the "spacebar" or "enter" keys or simply close the menu.

I'm trying to remove most screen covering menus with alternatives like that to make everything feel a bit more natural.

I think programmer should set up environment for visual artists so they can easilly make their worlds.
now i dont programming anything because of depressive episode but in future i may programm a nexus and general purpose scripts to ease work of visual artists
i also think of architecture where general purpose scripts like cast effect or change self model to visualise effect compiled to dll or embedded to exe and unity scans folder for user scenes, places doors in nexus scene and teleports gamer to scene when door activates.
http://docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReference/Resources.Load.html

also the nost annoying thing here is model animation. even if anon want to make models he also need zbrush or something like that to create custom models.

but in unity 2d may be used sprites from any projects if it author wants to participate

 No.10651

This project is pretty neat overall, anon. One of the things I was going to suggest was that rather than using full 3d models you should do a 2.5d system; that makes it much easier to implement characters as well as giving the game a more RPGMaker-esque look and feel. Paper Mario-esque 3d sprites sitting on planes, basically.

I've got some experience working in Unity and C# so let me know if you encounter any problems and maybe I can help out. I've also got an Oculus Rift DK2 if you're interested and need a tester.

If you have an account in niconico, you can compare it with "standard" Microsoft MIDI's synthetizer sound (which is shit) with th ost:

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm286550
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyMH1MLXOXc&list=PL71FFB007D78782DA

Alternatively, you can do as >>10634 said. Archo SoundFont is pretty cool.
However, bear in mind that it consumes more CPU resources, depending on the buffer and latency. If you're installing it, make a restart point for the OS in case you want to uninstall it later.
That's why I recommend buying a synth instead of a soundfont, but well…

That could work too, if it works with rpg maker 2k3, or is it an software that replaces the midi player for the computer?

As well for my search of finished(games with endings) yn fangames, I tried Yume Graffiti, wich is pretty pleasing to play, and I still have to figure out how to get the other ending. I took a look in Amihailu in Dreamland, wich does look intresting, but I don't know. I might go for DID next, and gonna check the wiki for more games.

>That could work too, if it works with rpg maker 2k3, or is it an software that replaces the midi player for the computer?

VMIDI synth is a "software" synthesizer, contrary to "hardware" synthesizers like SC-88/55, YMXG, etc.

It basically "replaces" Microsoft MIDI Synthesizer with any SoundFont (AKA an "instrument bank") you load onto it.
The sound samples of windows are hideous, and with a softsynth you can replace those by more dynamic and realistic sounds.

So, ANYTHING that plays MIDI will use the new synthesizer (In the case mentioned, VirtualMIDI synth) with the soundfont of your choice.

As I mentioned before, if you're planing to test it, make sure to mark a restart point in your OS. I installed it once in an old notebook and the CPU didn't stand it too much, even when I downgraded the latency and the buffer to the minimum respectable level.
If you trust your computer isn't old or shitty, chances for this to happen are low, but it's better to foresight any problem and hand over a solution beforehand.

General design discussion, because there should be one (but really it's because I could use the advice).

1. What kind of music do you prefer? YN style, where it is either ambiance or very short loops, or an actual soundtrack (which would make the game's filesize shoot up)?

2. What ratio of doors in the nexus to total number of dream world in the game is best? Say a game has 20 different dream worlds, and the nexus has 12 doors, that means only 40% of the games areas you have to find by exploring. But if it was a ratio of 20 worlds to 5 doors, plenty of the game would be explorable but the nexus wouldn't have very many doors. What ratio do you prefer?

3. Would it turn many people off if the ending wasn't very ambiguous, thus leaving little room for speculation and theorizing? It's definitely part of YN's appeal, but would most of you like it if this rule was broken?

I thought you mean puzzles like the ones of 2kki. The in-game, decisive-for-the-sake-of-moving-forward-in-the-plot kind of puzzles aren't my thing either. But if you meant side-play puzzles that add insight of the story or new data that you wouldn't normally get through the normal gameplay, they're more than welcome.

 No.10586

YN's effects are scattered pretty well throughout the worlds. Some areas have effects while plenty don't. By my estimation there were less rooms with effects than there were with effects to find, but I could be off. What ratio of effects to areas would be not to thin and not to thick? Of course, ideally there should be plenty of events in a game and at least one point of interest in each area.
