ZEROIGAR RELEASE!
« on: August 08, 2015, 10:30:52 PM »



Come and get it!

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32377930/2015-08-08-zeroigar-release-1.0.zip

The file is submitted to romhacking.net, but it's going to take them a while to process it. I'm going to go ahead and give you fine folks here the chance to have it now.

Elmer and I poured a lot of effort into making things look as good as possible. We really hope that it helps you get as much enjoyment out of this game as possible.

Stay tuned for a beautiful manual from esteban, too!

Teaser preview here:

You may have played or heard about this game briefly in the past and dismissed it as a mediocre shooter packaged with some generic anime. If so, I urge you to give it another shot. When you understand the unique gameplay and can fully appreciate the story, I think you'll realize just what a special game Zeroigar really is.

Let us know what you think of it!

By the way, for those who do try it, be sure to switch the Mode 1 Button to "B" in order to enable auto-fire.

Sure wish I had put that in the README.  ](*,)

Cool!

I'm saving my money for a Tobias version. He shouldn't want more than...$300, right? Considering it comes with a gold plated .22 shell casing and a giant case made out of trash can lids, right?

Awesome. I'm saving up my ice cream money.

Thanks so much to everyone involved with this! Now with 2 translations for it, I'll feel more inclined to buy a PCFX, especially with one of those being a cool looking shooter.

Well done, it looks great and I can't wait to try it at some point :mrgreen:

Oh 1 more thing.  I hadn't had time to mention this to sam and elmer earlier.  Using inferiory CD-R's seems to make PC-FX crash during the opening intro movie.  (I tried an old cheap one, which was promptly refuted by system.  Tried a newer more reasonable disk with no problems)
NW: Hey, I made it on this psycho's Enemies' List, how about that ?? ;)

BT: Look at how the fake SFII' carts instantly sold out and were immediately listed on eBay before the flippers even took possession. Look at Nintendo's overpriced bricks. Look at the typical forum discussions elsewhere.

You can't tell most retro gamers anything!

Yeah, use http://www.imgburn.com/ for your CD-R burning needs! I just had helped somebody with Ys IV on my site that burned a CD-R that crashed. I told him to use respectable media and to burn it at the slowest speed with ImgBurn. I believe he used the same media, just that burning it with ImgBurn resulted in a working CD-R copy on real NEC hardware. So yeah, FYI, 1) ImgBurn + 2) Slowest burn speed is best for real hardware and older CD lasers when using CD-R media!

Thumbs down for translating a good game instead of an anime porn game!!!!

But honestly the translation of the screen that appears after a level is over would have done wonders for me. I initially had no idea there was a leveling up system going on. If I knew that right away I would have appreciated it more sooner.

Well, I can make you a one-time, never-to-be-repeated, only-for-the duration-of-this-phone-call, offer of a collectors-edition "lost" (behind the couch) "prototype" CD-R, signed by the programmer's dog's paw, for only $249.99!

That's an authentic bargain! You'd be crazy to pass it up!

... Whoops ... you missed it, all sold out.  :(

Yep! It's the best game on the system ... in my extremely biased opinion.  :wink:

Zeroigar's video playback code is a bit annoying.

If it gets a read error just as it starts playing back a video, then it locks up to console, and you're screwed.

But if it gets a read error in the middle of a video, it just cancels that video and skips on to the next thing, i.e. loading the next level.

It's definitely a game where you want to have your PC-FX's laser working properly.

Me, too.

It wasn't until I started working on it with SamIAm that I actually had any idea that it was really a good game!

I started just wanting to know what-on-earth the story was ... and have actually ended up really enjoying it as a game.

I absolutely love how the developers went to a lot of effort to "humanize" each of the bosses.

That's not something that I've ever seen done so well in a shoot-em-up.
