Great updates SePH.
Not sure if you plan to update anything in dungeons. I always wanted to enter the Goron Club in this game.

Thanks Euclid Smile

@Puzzledude: Like I said before, I'm not sure if I'll keep the Reloaded (even though it is fitting in this case)...so long as I keep 4th wall and memes out of my dialogues and give the game a proper story, I should be fine!

Seph are you planning to get rid of [Window 02] tag? For the border to work you need to get rid of the window 02.

For now do these fixes to get the border to the white tiles - since I haven't got the rom yet so give it a go and let me know how it goes. I'll have to do a few lines of asm to get the talk bubble bit once I know I have the colours right (you'll see what I mean when you try it)

Here are the hex addresses (assuming you're using palette 6, the blue one, it should get you the white tiles... hopefully, if i completely broke it let me know)
0x7537F - 1E E0 - top left - 1A EE
0x75381 - 1D A0 - top - 1A EF
0x75383 - 1E A0 - top right - 9A EE
0x75385 - 1F 60 - left tile - 1A FE
0x75387 - 7F 30 - fill tile - 1A AB
0x75389 - 1F 20 - right tile - 9A EE
0x7538B - 1E 60 - bottom left - 5A EE
0x7538D - 1D 20 - bottom - 9A EF
0x7538F - 1E 20 - bottom right - BA EE

I can't really test it because the old conker roms don't have those specific tiles - I could push them in via zcompress but... laziness got to me.

Also check your email, I'm pretty sure I send you my last rom a couple days ago Wink

Yeah I'll remove all of those, I'm sure the rom I sent you has already the first few monologues like that for/when you do test it.

Here are the hex addresses (assuming you're using palette 6, the blue one, it should get you the white tiles... hopefully, if i completely broke it let me know)

Alright, here's my testing results:

0x7537F - EE 20 EF 20 EE 60 FE 20 AC 20 FE 60 EE A0 EF A0 EE E0

That should get the borders started, the rest looks like ASM. Also looks like lttp is default filling the text area with transparent tile, I'll have to find that next week...

It's missing that speech ^ part, which I'll have to tack on via asm (that 1 tile up lol)

Pasting my notes here for the white fill, i'll get to writing some asm for it when I feel like it, it is working if i manually fix the tiles in ram so it's definitely do-able.

If you feel like "trying it out" paste the first line where $8E/D200 whereever cpu address translates to in the rom (0x75200 I think), it'll only do the white on first show (scrolling lines will still show transparent tiles) - don't apply permanently because i'll rewrite that section to be a bit better.

Code:

$8E/D200 - A2 A0 0F A9 00 FF 9D 00 00 9D 02 00 9D 04 00 9D 06 00 9D 08 00 9D 0A 00 9D 0C 00 8A 38 E9 0E 00 AA 10 E0

All done, do test it and tell me if anything's wrong

If the monologue displays in the middle (eg/ that triforce one) the speech quote thing should not appear on top. Had to code so many hooks because lttp was doing so many calculations there.

Don't apply this to your final rom if possible, If you need it reversed out it'll be a big patch.

; Uses 0x109000 - $21:9000 as coding space in the conker rom.

At first glance everything seems to me working perfectly. Have yet to test all the game, but I've tested all the intro and didn't encounter any issues whatsoever!

So awesome looking as well!

Don't apply this to your final rom if possible, If you need it reversed out it'll be a big patch.

I don't think I'll reverse it and keep it as such. Unless it isn't safe to apply yet :-P

Much thanks, I'm one step closer to fulfilling my goal :-)

Its safe to apply, go for it. I should be able to dig out the original values from the rom you sent me assuming i ever need to backout.

It was the positional calculation which was throwing me off last night, till i remember lttp displays monologues in 2 different places on the screen.

When it displays in the middle I've left out the speech quote part, so its like a big thought bubble lol

Yeah I've noticed about that when talking to certain npcs, thought it was a bug of sorts lol, but since that's how lttp worked, no change is really needed so we have a complete bugfix (minor the inventory menu tails and sabers gfx...but that'll be for some other time lol ;)

Thanks as always :)

Yes, it is incredible how high people would regard a story. I mean, you don't play a video game because of a story, but some do apparently.

Yeah, it should be for fun but many people these days takes games too seriously or get affected by them tiny misplaced pixels ;-)

Perhaps this memefest-less version of the Conker hack that will feature a small basic story will be appreciated more in the long run, who knows. I keep telling myself that I'll have at least tried!

While I might have started this project as an intended 2.0 version...the more time I spend on the project, the more I feel its a remake. So Erock was right, in a way.

So I'm looking into the possibility of releasing it using the reloaded, redux or remake in the title...so that both version 1.2.8 and project phoenix could be available at rhdn and over here at Zeldix.

I have also started choosing new songs for my areas, replacing mostly all of Trovsky songs with superior sounding songs...hopefully qwertymodo will be committed to the pcm cause, because there's a lot of them to change already lol :-P

You be the judge which one looks more appealing to play! I've used the original lttp dungeon water tiles for the river and turned them 90 degrees so it looks like it is flowing to the left in game which adds a nice effect.

Next year will probably be just as bad, but at least for the next couple of months I get the chance to catch my breath.

Thanks for reassuring me Qwertymodo! Since my head is still constantly flowing with new ideas everyday, I'll wait until my plans are set in stone and will contact you!

I had a major revelation a couple days ago after adding an easter egg to the tv show Westworld. I don't know how many of you watched that show, but wow, it is incredibly well done and the story is just magistrate. I was thinking of incorporating some key elements from that show (albeit after changing them a bit of course) and infuse them into the new narrative I'm building.

The original Conker game on the n64 had a major influence over the course of its story and it was The Matrix and since I kinda overused that old reference a bit too much in version 1.0, so I'm thinking about using references to the more recent shows out there instead, while adding my own original story along the way. I think it should please more people and angry less that way.

@qwertymodo: Regarding my msu-1 songs, there's good and bad news!

Click the appropriate spoiler in the order you want to hear the news :-]

good news:
I'll be using about half of the songs only...50 or 60 or less...the rest are unused.

bad news:
There's not much songs I'd keep honestly, the whole game will play and look different...I don't think I've even kept one of Trovsky twenty+ songs...so it might take some time to redo all these. will try posting an updated tracklist whenever I have some free time this week!
