Name of the project: ZERO and the Castle of Infinite Sadness
Game size: 32k ROM
RAM size requirement: 16K RAM
Game genre: Action
Name of the group: Dioniso

[2014-06-22] NEW ROM. Thanks to nenefranz a bug has been found: the game starts in the menu instead of showing the logo and PRESS SPACE screen. I forgot to change that in the final ROM.

[2014-06-22] A small update: ROM. Just a small synchro issue with the ZERO logo in the menu on MSX2+ and Turbo-r.

My PC don't work anymore; tools, old code/docs, passwords/tools of my website (that's why I had to upload the ROM to uploaded.to), etc, etc, etc. I will recover the harddisks but it will take some time. On a laptop and with NoWind I could at least fix that little problem.

Some notes on the game which I didn't mention before but they could be important:

-Entering passwords: if you have a password for NORMAL difficulty, you have to choose NORMAL in MODUS and then enter the password. You will start at level 1 if you introduced that password in EASY or HARD MODUS. This is done on purpose.
-If you clean 5 levels, you'll get a password and all your 3 lifes again. This is done on purpose.
-If you lose a life, you will start that level from the beginning. This is done on purpose. Stop crying and work hard on it  Griel
-The game is meant to be played at 60HZ (press "6" when booting on a PAL MSX2 model or superior). Recommended model: any Japanese MSX1 computer (THIS IS A MSX1 GAME COMPETITION; any other model is an extra although compulsory in the rules).  Magical Stones
-I think the levels from 15 onwards are the best/most beautiful ones. Later on, some new tiles are used.

Tools used (thank you very much, guys):
-tniASM 0.45 (Patrick Lesparre)
-PCX2SPR (Eduardo Robsy)
-Routine to create sine curves with asMSX (Eduardo Robsy) *<also used in SP8 INVADERS and KRAKONIA.>
-EditPlus (Sangil Kim)
-MS PAINT (all the graphics were created with this tool)
-BMP2MSX (HRA)
-TILED (Thorbjørn Lindeijer)
-Darkbasic Pro (The Game Creators) *<I use it to convert TILED screens to compressed levels and BMP2MSX data to compressed tilesets.>
-Bitbuster (Bombaman Team)
-Slots/RAM/48k ROM routines/theory (Armando) *<I still couldn't use it but I will to improve ZERO a little bit.>
-BlueMSX (Daniel Vik)
-NoWind Interface (Jan Wilmans and Aaldert Dekker)
-MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD (Manuel Pazos)

I hope some of you have fun with my game  Beam - Qbiqs

[2014-06-14] Download the game: here.

Summary: Clean every room of the castle from evil forces, starting from the the top and going down to the base.

-More info will be added-

[2013-11-23] An upload of the video directly recorded on OpenMSX. Better a "save as ...". The quality is much better but still no soft scroll in the video, only on your MSX.

[2013-11-22] A little test on video with the logo. I don't know why on a real computer I get a soft scroll and on this video after emus and video codecs I get a really bad/jumping scroll ... There's a problem here with emulated framerate.


Screenshot: Just a W.I.P. menu screenshot created these days (Ugliest "R" ever). I prefer not showing in-game screenshots for the moment.


-More screenshots will be added-

Art/Related material: 3 drawings a good friend of mine did 6 years ago ...

Cool!
Is it somehow related to the Smashing Pumpkins' album "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness"?
Even the first artwork reminds me some details (winged hourglasses) of the inlay Cheesy

Sorry about my post in Spanish before. I usually pay attention to this basic rule, but I got so excited with Dioniso's new entry that I totally forgot: I got carried away!

Your AVI file seems to be broken :

- only 202 Ko when the MP4 video from YouTube is 899 Ko
- only a green screen on VLC
- not accepted by Windows Media Player (but maybe the specific AVI format of openMSX is not supported by this Windows tool)

Only 202k is right. Use Windows Media Player, for instance. It also works on tablets with Android. I tried first with BlueMSX but I couldn´t get a proper video just a almost 2GB AVI without compression. Anyways, if you want to discuss this write a private message to me.

Ok, now it works. The problem was also with AVI's created by Fixato with openMSX.

Actually, I'm using now a new PC with Windows 8. After installing updated codecs, it's OK in the Windows Media Player.

For VLC, I've found a very useful tool that converts the openMSX-AVI format into a standard AVI format : Free AVI Video Converter.
No more green screen with the converted file (896 Ko instead of the 202 Ko, so almost the same size as for the MP4 file).

Hi. Not having much time for coding and trying to finish the game ... I just wanted to say the game will write directly to the $98 and $99 ports and will use the mix mode, which, taking into account the rules of the MSXDev'14, should be accepted ("VDP: TMS9918/TMS9928 or compatible video processor"). Although it also states that "If a game does not run properly in all MSX computers with at least 16 KB RAM it could be disqualified by the organization."

Well, I don't want to start the same discussion again. I'm just saying how my game would be and that I hope to finish it before the 16th of June  Llamada

But then why don't use Screen 4? Is that simple.  Undecided
Yeh, then can't fit the dev, but nobody is gonna put an X to you if you make a game outside the dev.
