I can't even begin to think of a project for you right now. My head's just "not in the game" currently. I hate to waste this 3 week opportunity you have; if I do think of anything, I'll tell you.

My inbox is flooded with other emails; I didn't see any other block puzzles on the first page of messages, but I did look at the ones you just sent. I like the patterns you're using and how, at first glance, they don't seem solvable. Most of them are actually pretty easy, especially the one shaped like a key. (gee, I wonder what's in that chest, lol!) The hardest one was in the bottom left corner -- I actually had to stop and study it before I saw its solution.

Someone offered me an ASM hack that would let Link open chests from ANY side, instead of just the front, but you've made me realize that some hacks are not such great ideas. Smile

The room has like a stair case either going up or down and there is a nice big chest waiting to be opened. I thought the end result was worth sending to you.

Take care.

Also when I made this I used those 16x16 single tiles which are actually used for the ground walk on switch, however in the design none of those actually trigger any real switches and I only used them for convenience when making this.

Here is one where you have to push the block so that you can dash jump accross the hole. Must be wearing the cape as well.

Actually the whole reason for putting the bumper there was prevent the player from using the bomb jump trick and forcing the play to use the boot dash. Now I believe there is a hack that doesnt allow link to be hurt by his own bombs so I guess the bumper isnt necessary anymore?

also does the roc feather jump ability go through the bumper? i cant remember.

I really like the pyramid/brick slopes maybe they could find a way into Z3C. Oh, and I see you updated your page. Yeah, the problem with making these great hacks is that your just a one man team. Normally while making games, you have entire teams who work on them. Not only that, but those people are getting paid for it. It's their job to make a game. While in your case its not a job nor are you getting paid. I really think though that your hack could possibly go down as being one of the greatest Zelda 3 hacks ever. So special time and care needs to given to this hack. At least you can say, Quest for Calatia was never a rushed project.......lol.

I know that I've asked you time and time again with what else I can help you with and I know that I haven't been able to work on much, but I will say this. If you want progress to be made then to might actually have me collaborate with you on some things. If years go by with little progress then how can this game ever be completed? Think about it.

I already showed the idea of the puzzle before.

I was wondering, we still need mountain edge graphics correct? Well, if you give me the specifics of the mountain edges like all the mountain tile graphics, colors one can use, ect. I might actually just hire this guy for a small job and see how it goes of course provided that it doesn't cost too much.

Anyway, what do you think?

zack wrote:Mountain edges are just half of mountain graphics, so they would need to match whatever the mountains themselves look like. There are quite a few great pixel artists out there who would love to contribute for free, so no need to pay for it. And as I have noted, they must remain uncomplex to allow them being compressed into the game.

Sorry for not reading and responding to your other emails. I have never been so slammed with stuff to do in my life. We should talk on the phone soon so I can explain what is really going on...

Ho ho ho!

Erock my boy, you have been a good boy this year -- though I was afraid you'd gotten too old to believe in me!  I contacted Zack and learned that he actually has your phone call on his vacation checklist.  However, as he's been almost as busy as I have, he wasn't sure if New Years Eve was an appropriate time to call.  I've let him know that he can call tomorrow -- hopefully he will!

Sorry for the delayed response, but you know I'm a night person!  I hope you enjoyed the candy and video games I brought you!

This was my motivational message to Zack.

Erock wrote:
Congrats on being a father to your family! Hope all is good.

I see that you updated your questforcalatia site and I see that you were quite sick there. What the heck did you get infected with???

Anyways... so I see that the Quest for Calatia project, one that I've been following and contributed to has come to basically a complete halt.

I know that hacking a game this BIG is crazy for one person, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to help in the first place. In fact doing that entire hack is literally crazy and is a heavy investment!

I also know that you have been working on this project for like 10 years or more. That's a long time considering that an average persons life time is less than 100 years and its not even done yet.

So if I may ask... will the hack be done in another 10 years? 20 years?? 30??? .... NEVER!!?!?!?!

Anyway I'm afraid that this period of no progression on Quest for Calatia has to come to an end if you ever wish to get this hack finished.

My suggestion is to simply TEAM UP with the current Zelda 3 hacking community an order to progress back on track.

http://lpu-devs-hideout.openphpbb.com/

That link above is a private Zelda 3 hacking forum.

My advice is to go onto that message board and simply post your progress and what is stumping you on the hack.

There are plenty of very knowledgeable people on that board and I'm sure that they are more than willing to help you out on whatever you are working on.

All I know is that working TOGETHER is better in this situation than working ALONE.

Also I wouldn't be e-mailing you suggesting this if you were making regular progress on the hack, but its been like 2 years with almost no progress!!!??? And because of that I'm saying that you are going to have to do SOMETHING or I'm afraid that Quest for Calatia will NEVER be completed until you probably RETIRE from your JOB when your like 60 or 70 years old and then all of the people who grew up playing this game that would appreciate a Zelda 3 hack will be DEAD and your hack will fade off into non existence.

COME ON ZACK I KNOW THAT YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Now, as far as Zeldix goes, all you need really is a few minutes of free time to check out the message boards. In other words, by the time you finished reading this e-mail that I'm writing that's enough time to go on there and at least make a post saying Hi as well as just looking the various topics that exist."

I have created a Zeldix account now; I'm just waiting for a moderator to approve it. Smile

"Now, this is a PRIVATE Zelda 3 hacking forum, which means that only the members of that forum can see the posts so it's not available for the public to see. Almost all of the greatest and knowledgeable Zelda 3 hackers are there."

I'll play it by ear, regarding how much I'm willing to reveal in there.

"For example, we just got a pretty new member named Conn and he was the one who worked on getting the Zelda 3 Ancient Stone Tablets that you played a while back. Conn is a ASM wizard!"

I actually never played AST -- it was only BSZelda that I played, and that was just the first four dungeons. Thanks for reminding me about this gem!

"Some of the ASM hacks that have been made that are on there are outstanding! Which include:"

Smashing pots with a sword -- Every modern Zelda game has this, and it's so much more convenient then the two-step lift/throw process. Smile

Ice Rod freezing shallow water that is walkable on -- That's a neat effect. I can't think of any practical purpose, other than allowing pushable blocks and water-fearing enemies to cross.

Pushable bricks that can be moved an infinite amount of times -- That's awesome!!

No annoying beeping when your heats are low -- I would like to have just a few warning beeps when you initially get that low...

Plus tons more!

Most of these are icing on the cake, which won't be my priority until I can actually get the cake baked. As I've said, I always work on the hardest & most critical stuff first, since the other stuff is pointless unless I can make the main hack work. Sadly, this also has the effect of discouraging me, especially when time is so limited, so sometimes it's good to look at the icing for motivation.

My life has been such that there was NO WAY I could work on Zelda3C, for a while. There were huge things happening that made spare time impossible. I lost sight of the game because there was no seeing it, for a while. However, a lot has changed and I've started finding time to myself again lately. Thanks for all your endless patience -- I'll make sure it pays off!

"One last thing, it was agreed on Zeldix that a single person doing a complete Zelda 3 rom hack on their own is just down right crazy and too much for one person to handle. The only way Quest for Calatia will be completed is if we do this as a team and this team exists on Zeldix. Seph, Euclid, Puzzledude, Conn, Potentialing, Mathonnapkins and pretty much everyone else there are absolute experts on this game and have invaluable knowledge which will help Quest for Calatia succeed. "

It's very good to hear that so many people have forged an alliance. I know that Zelda3C can't be completed alone -- however, I still stand on my premise that those things are graphics, music, and ASM hacking -- all things that I can't do on my own. (Actually, I'm not too bad at pixel art, but I shouldn't be putting my time into that.) The actual adventure, including story, overworld and dungeons, are still mine to create; if I can't do those on my own, there's no point in my creating the game. I'm open to ideas and puzzle concepts, of course, but their final implementation is for me to decide.

"Teaming up on Zeldix will clearly be beneficial to Quest for Calatia and is the most logic choice here. Why would anyone turn down the most valuable assistance you could ever wish for?"

"So what are you waiting for? The decision is clear. Don't waist anymore time fumbling around with Hyrule Magic and the rom by yourself."

I was already planning to join Zeldix when Seph and others invited me earlier.

"All you have to do is click the link below and type in your user name and password! If you do not have a user name or password then e-mail Seph or I notify Seph him for you!"

Yes, I'm registered now as GameMakr24. Thanks for giving me that final push!

It will be the BEST decision you have ever made!

Woohoo! Maybe they can help me with the story-based ASM issues I was having when last I worked on it!
