Hey man, what's up? You good during this period?
400+ deaths :\ 3000+recovered 11k+ cases total.
We also have curfew until the half of May.
Yup. Just a few months ago, China has been secretly building installations on the islands which belong to the Philippines. Then a few days ago, China gave the islands (that aren't theirs) different Chinese names. And then, a Chinese warship aimed their guns at a Philippine Navy ship. No firing, they just want to intimidate.
All of this territorial expansion by China is happening while the world is fighting the virus. US and Australia has already noticed it though. Hopefully, and action will be taken soon.
Yeah, hopefully. No US navy there?
So, how come you didn't put music from that game too? Would make a better atmosphere I reckon.
Sure Deep. I'll keep that in mind. ;)
The great Kasrkin? I must be in a mirror world.
The majority of the campaigns on hiveworkshop are adaptations of Wc3 stories/ alterations of wc3 lore. No-one accuses any of them of not being original/plagiarism.
Why did you do that?
Ok, I'll do that. Thank you Shar. You are very kind. :)
Hi Shar, sorry for the late reply. I will just post a link of it here in my profile page so that people can download it. I don't want it to cause any trouble in the future. So sorry.
Merry Christmas Jamir! :)
Thanks man, belated Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to you too. Hope you have a wonderful year ahead! :)
Picture are down
Should upload them on the site, not on external ones.
Hope you good.
No problem. I enjoyed making it and getting all the feedback from the testers. Took far too long though. :/
That is great news about your project, Jamir. Lots of people will enjoy playing it~~
Thanks tulee. Expect it in a few days. Happy holidays! :D
Curious to know which Final Fantasy Tactics do you recommend? I own a PSVita and it is wondrous at playing classics. Should I play the PS1 or the PSP version?
I don't own the Ps1 version so I can't say for sure but I think the psp version (War of the Lions) is the superior one. IIRC, that is the remake version with added animated cutscenes and has a shakespearean english (a much better translation). They should be the same gameplay wise (i think).
Hey! I love the Vita too. Lots of great games on this one. :)
Alright, good to know. Thanks.
Yes! I know it gets a lot of flack but it has a neat amount of original games but it also shines brightly with the amount of PS1 and PSP games that are playable on it.
True. To think that you can play A LOT of JRPGs on this one is mindblowing. The games are cheaply priced too, unlike the Switch. -_-
Oh, by the way! Have you ever considered... horses?! I'm guessing the map is going to be quite large when the finished product comes out and having a horse will make traversing the landscape easier. Also, aesthetics! There should be a few Arthas on Horse models laying around which you could apply Joshua's skin unto. Might be a neat idea, iunno.
Yup. I've actually already made a skin for that. I just have to find a way to implement it seamlessly. Haha.
I also plan to implement other modes of transportation in the game. Like train stations and shipyards. You'll find out once you get to the other towns. :)
Thanks for the suggestion btw.
That's cool. Maybe... through purchasing a horse? I dunno lol
I'm thinking something else, but I may consider it. :)
Hey there! I have a question for Tactics Unleashed. Are items 'usable out of combat' usable in combat as well? I'm not too keen on risking it, haha. I'm very curious as I think the Cooked Jellyfish should be very useful. Although, Cooked Jellyfish does say that the effect lasts for the first 5 rounds, I was thinking if it was possible to immediately use it in the very first round.
Nah, it's okay. Ask all you want. :) Battle points can only be taken the first time you fought a story battle. After that they're gone for good. There are ways to farm for points, but they're pretty hidden. Don't worry, with the amount of battles you'll fight, I'm sure you can amass a lot of points.
Where are you now, btw? Have you beaten Danjou Forest?
Yes, actually! With prior knowledge of birthstones and the focus crystal, it was actually a bit easier than I expected. Although I did find a few bugs:
•Joshua casting Flamestrike on Danjou Forest was very odd. It didn't play his animation and it set the camera to the far right, but the flame attachment on Joshua's sword was visible, just not anywhere near him.
•I'm using Yuri as my primary mage (currently has Flame and Dark Beam, although the latter isn't fully learned yet) and I can't seem to cast Flame on the Gork Hunters to the right. Very odd.
•For some reason, when I was trying to reach the last remaining Gork Hunter, Joshua couldn't reach him, he wasn't able to move towards him as the grids seemed invisible. This may correlate somewhat to Yuri not being able to hit them. My entire squadron was on the left side nearing the Gork Hunter, the Gork Hunter being next to the 2nd chest available in the map. Joshua was on the right side, and he couldn't go straight upwards as the Grids weren't available for some reason.
•Yuri was able to hit the Gork Hunter with Flame when the Gork Hunter was out of the straight path Joshua and the Gork Hunter was in, though. It may not be a problem with Flame not being able to hit, but that particular path. I'll send a pic of that specific place
Is that you Shinji, I mean Jamir?
Nope. That's Kenshi Yonezu: https://www.youtube.com/user/08yakari.
Sounds pretty good. Typical Japanese pop-stuff though.
True. His tunes have that classic Japanese pop style which I like.
Happy New Year Jamir! :)
Hi Champion! Have a blessed and happy new year!
Timely! I might use that as an avatar. :)
Yours is amazing too.
Oh my, so sorry that I missed your message to me last September, I was way too busy with studies to go online! If you're still up for me to beta test, I'd be glad to so. Altho it may take me a week or so to do it as school really has been keeping me on a tight leash
Thanks Tanni! I understand that it's studies first man and that's great! I've been there. :)
Anyway yeah, I'm currently running some beta tests with some of my friends here in THW. That's awesome! Of course more testers are welcome!
I'm currently on a break though, so I can't send you the map right now. Gotta have some rest too haha. I will drop you a private message a few days from now, how about it? :D
Okay, that's cool with me!
How is your project going?
I just want our works to survive at whatever's coming. :)
Don't worry Jamir, there will always be classic Warcraft III.
Yeah... I just hope it won't break anything and be as close as possible to the current versions.
Thanks for the follow!
Same here! :)
A bad decision for the artstyle, yes.
I also wonder if cinematics would even work properly with talking portraits and all in cinematic mode.
After all, they replace their old cinematics with new camera movements and talking models instead of portraits.
*sighs* Yeah, that sucks. :/
I don't plan on buying it right away though, I might stick to the old game if I have to. There's just no point. The artstyle, I don't like 'em. The lack of custom content at the start, nope. The graphics, I'm fine with the old one. The only thing that makes me want it is the editor, and I have yet to see its updated functionality.
After seeing how many bugs the recent patches have caused not only to the game but to the editor as well, I am not really confident about that one.
I don't plan on buying it at all.
True, the bugs haven't been fixed yet. We just have to wait and see if it's gonna be fixed eventually... or not.
Hey man, I'm stuck on the eastern mines-fourth level (with the Hive building). There are way too many starting enemy units and they are all coming for the heroes. They also deal a lot of damage, 200+back, 166+side and 100 front while I deal 70-90 side and maybe some 100 back. I have some AoE spells but can't cast them all the time since the enemies move all the time and rarely can I find more than 2 together. Plus, the AoE spells are pretty weak 80-90 damage. Dervish is a bit tougher but it requires the hero to be melee near and that's very problematic with the enemy moving and if that hero could even cast the spell more than once before death.
Gold is a problem. I don't have the top armour but one level below but pretty much have the most powerful weapons. Still, maybe some weapons are better than other for this situation and you can't exchange them.
I don't have any of the current weapon spells even on a low percentage. I did not drop my weapons. I only do that when I change them with others.
I don't :| I needed more intelligence on Pratau for it but I need more gold for rings.
Yeah... that was it... the bug that filled my slots with 1337 percentages instead of spells. Deleting them and picking up the weapon again lead to the spells being learned.
I'm afraid I'll have to use the gold cheat if it works to get the proper gear though in this circumstance...
No problem man, you can do anything that can help you finish this campaign. Sorry for it being difficult to understand, I never did a proper tutorial on this stuff.
Btw, IIRC, there are more powerful weapons coming but they're secretly hidden in the temple map (2 maps ahead of where you are currently). I think you will need the skill Searchmark (or is it Unlock? I can't remember) to find them. They aren't needed to finish the campaign though so don't worry if you can't find them. Good luck!
Even though you won't update your older campaigns, I'll still do a review on TU: chapter 1. Somethings in the review may help you in the remake.
Thanks. No problem. And yes, your review is very helpful to me and I'm eager to read your comments on chapter 1. :)
How did you know? Haha. Man, my body clock is nuts that if I sleep too early, I also wake up way too early. Like... very early. It's okay though because I feel like this is the time when I'm in the zone of working on my campaign. I give it a few hours and then go back to sleep. :/
Or maybe it's because of my avatar? Nah, it's not related. :)
Happy mapping, it's what's important.
2nd melee contest poll started, in the link you can (if you wish) download all the maps from the zip file, see them all and rate what do you think are the 5 best maps. If you don´t have competitive melee knoledge, is okay, you can use other criteria like: enviroment, effort, map shape and others. The general public opinion is important to define 20% of the final score https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/melee-mapping-contest-2-poll.308814/
I'll try them this weekend. :)
the poll will close the 8 of october so you can take your time to do it.
