//Mini Update #1 24/6/12\\

Now the effects of your attacks will be written under the total damage amount.

//Update #5 24/6/12\\

Introducing the new critical/weakness system. Moves are assigned to 3 different classes:

- Earth (Stronger against Magic / Weaker against Flying)
- Flying (Stronger against Earth / Weaker against Magic)
- Magic (Stronger against Flying / Weaker against Earth)

Each of Rainbow Dash's current moves have been assigned one of these values to get your head around the concept. Derpy's attack is always magic so she will do more damage to you now. Hope you're good at saving health potions.

//Update #4 20/6/12\\

Now you can choose which moves you want to take with you into the fight. Since only 3 have been developed so far, it will only really be effective later on.
Once I add more fighters, you can also select them.

//Update #3 15/6/12\\

Wow, again, it has been a while since I updated. I blame University myself, but regardless, here is a small but awesome update to the engine.

- Sound and Music can be muted now
- Sound and Music options can be controlled by Keyboard.
- Space Bar to Drop Down or Remove Menu
- S Key to remove Music
- A Key to remove Sound
- Enter Key to Play Game
- Rainbow Dash has a new attack. Try it out!
- Animation go at full 60FPS, making the attacks a lot faster

Test it for bugs and get back to me on it :)

//Update #2 21/5/12 \\

Wow, it has been a while since I last updated. Well. The game doesn't have an ending, yet, but Fake Derpy now has attacks of her own, so it is now playable.

- AP is now a factor to consider.
- AP is recovered, even if you attack
- Defense boost every time you defend
- AP boost every time you defend
- Fake Derpy now attacks back
- Item Counter now works!

// Update # 1 4/4/12 \\

- Stare now has an animation with and will reduce Defense
- Your damage will now be displayed in text


Due to a suddenly high demand of assignments from my university, it is with sadness that I postpone any production on the battle system. This is what I have done so far.

However, take heart. There are advantages to this brief break!

A) It gives voice actors/actresses more time to reveal themselves (especially pony voice actresses)

B) You get early access at seeing what the game can do. This means any changes you want can be done very painlessly now. I don't have to go through a huge ordeal to sort them out.

So go ahead. Try it out. The only attack working ATM is Tackle so...meh. Defense does stuff-all and items just show what items do. A brief animation on Dashie but that's about it.

Anyway, have fun...I guess?

I never programmed the game to respond when you reach 0 health. This was an engine test.

Before I look into this, I need several details.
- First Character, Second Character
- Order of Attacks
- Did you have enough AP to attack with?
- What did you do previously?

Yes! It may have taken 2 tries but... I got derpy to negative health and still had health left over!

Congratulations. Hopefully, soon, I'll get a highscore submission thing so you can compare your health to other players.

Hm, I think the unnamed attrack should need a bit less ap, or do more damage. It's like, not really the best attack the use, and survive at the moment.

SonicMon Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Okay, I'm looking into that. Less AP or more attack, what do you think?

Less AP is more balanced I think. But you should test that actualy, and see what feels best.

The game may be experiencing a case of the 'WTF is going on?'
Translation: I have programmed the game to determine the width of the healthbar in accordance to the health of the player / max health. If you go into the negatives, the game is probably unsure of what is going on and just decided to go crazy.

No sound effects have been added yet, and dying animations haven't been added because it's an engine test rather than actual gameplay.

it would be awesome if this was implemented in the my little dashie game. speaking of which, is this meant to be an extension of that game?

SonicMon Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
This is going to be what was originally the My Little Dashie story. Because the author didn't like the mail he was getting (apparantely there were complaints going around about the game), it had to be changed.

:iconbubdude:
bubdude Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
ahh well there were a lot of things from the my little dashie game that i liked and it would be awesome if they were brought back. things like the central hub that you had where you could see dashie. i assume that you were going to more with that (actually care for dashie as she grows or something)

SonicMon Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I was, but then I conceptualized a theory I dub the "Pokemon Love Theory". The theory is that even though you don't directly care for your Pokemon (you just take them to a centre to get healed and you don't often feed them), your journey with them and watching them triumph or fail allows you to grow closer to them. This is what my game is hoping to be centralized around.
Rather than directly taking care of your pony, you're on a journey with them, and you are doing everything you can to grow with them and help them triumph.

it sounds interesting but at the same time, it would at least be awesome to see your pony grow as you progress

Not physically, though. Even though I'm not following much canon-story elements, I don't to age the ponies by too greater milestone. I mean grow in knowledge and in strength.
Reply
:iconbubdude:
bubdude Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
yeah i know. what i meant is that if you are following the pokemon theory then they would grow physically as well (maybe once the story reaches a certain point). it's not needed but it would be a little more interesting. if you are using the desktop ponies for the characters in the game then there are quite a few filly versions of the ponies that you could start the game out with.
