Sharpened Steel.

Postby Eclectic gaming » Sun May 26, 2013 9:06 am

Preview of Rpg.jpg
Hey there, I've just released the Beta for my game, Sharpened Steel. It's my first attempt at making a game, and it still isn't quite finished. It's an action RPG set in the world of Stratom. You can complete quests, interact with hundreds of characters, and explore different environments. Like I said, it's still not finished, and there will most likely be more than a few rough edges, which is why I've put it up for beta testing. If you're going to rate it, please leave some constructive criticism, as I can't improve things from a mindless rant. If you want to ask any questions, just post them here, and I'll answer them.


-Rhys.

EDIT: It's no longer in Beta, so most glitches should be fixed. The full release will probably be ready in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.

The firs thing for you to do is remove security risks. I have Norton and the file is removed instantly as it is unsafe to use. If you address this issue i will continue to review the rest of the game. By the way i am the same person as on Yahoo so consider by ownership proposition.

I don't think anything he did caused security issues, I think your antivirus is being a bit overprotective.

Hey there, I'm not sure why it is alerting your anti-virus, but it really shouldn't. It is made using files only from 001engine. It may be that it sees it as an "untrusted download" which is common in some computers, but I assure you that it contains nothing malicious and you can hit the "Trust" button.

Hope I helped. :)

It's looking good though if I had any suggestions it's be to make the text and message box better colours because sometimes t's hard to read :)

Yeah, I didn't like the original blue colour for the text box so I made it that colour =/ not a brilliant idea, so I'm now working on changing that.


500 Downloads! Thanks to everybody who downloaded it, the full version will be out soon, with the completed storyline and more. I never thought it would do this well, so thanks again to everybody. IndieRPGs even did an article on sharpened steel! I would give you the link but you can't do that on these forums :( but if you want to read it just google "Indie RPGs Sharpened Steel" or something like that.

PS: or you can just look at the screen shot, (I didn't think of that before)


Version 0.5 now out! Includes house buying, more quests, collectibles and more! Hope you enjoy! :lol:

Thanks, :lol: and I know the HUD is pretty plain, but I'm not particularly good at working with interfaces, but i'll try and spice it up a bit if I can.

And at long last, I'm nearing the end of Sharpened Steel, the full version is almost prepped and ready, and the only things left to do are to sand off the rough edges.

How do I do that? Well I'll need all of you guys' help. Download the current version and tell me what you liked, what you hated, and what you want. I know the comments on the game are closed right now, but I'll open them again soon. Don't hold back. I've learnt to take criticism and improve from it. Anything is appreciated. Thank you in advance, if anybody knows what makes a good 001 game, it's you guys. :)

Hmm, thats odd, you mean you're stuck there and can't move? Or your stuck on that map?


Edit: Yeah, I've been able to recreate that glitch, I can't think what on earth caused it. I'll try and get it fixed for the next version though.

Edit2: If you want to escape the glitch, press shift to jump out

I would just get rid of the sea completely, but it plays a part later on in the game.

Anyway, I'm fairly certain the fault is with the engine and the submersion bit on the tile-sets editor, I'll submit a bug report and hopefully it will be fixed :)

Like I said before, I'm fairly certain this bug is with the engine and not on my end. I have sent a bug report and I hope it will be fixed for the next update, so don't despair.

Like I mentioned earlier, if you happen to find yourself in the glitch, just press SHIFT to jump out until it's fixed. :?

I'm aware of this issue, that the box in the shop interface appears outside the border, but I cannot figure out what is causing this behaviour, in the interface menu it looks fine, but as soon as it comes to gameplay it looks odd. I'll come up with a solution ASAP however, so hopefully it will be fixed for the next version.

Might be the edging option isn't set the same for the border as it is for the background - this was an issue for a little while in the built-in ones.

The full version of Sharpened Steel is now out! The game is completed, but it will still be updated from time to time. I can now rest, and thanks to all of you who provided feedback and support. You can download it on the 001 website.

At the end of the game, there is a credits section. I have listed some of you in the Special Thanks area, if you have any problems and want to be taken off the section, just tell me. And if I forgot you and I need to put you on the Special Thanks, just tell me.

Special Thanks to: Mike Weir (for the engine) Samulis (for resources) gerardred (for feedback) Danny (for feedback) mm001 (For resources) mistergeorge (for feedback) And the engine001 community.

Oh, and how do I get this moved to the completed games section?

Thanks.

Been a while since this thread has been updated, and I think I finally have enough news to constitute an update!

Sharpened Steel has received many updates since I last posted, and a shed load of new features come with these updates. Too many to list or remember, so if you're curious, why not check out the latest version?
I've created an IndieDB page for Sharpened Steel, which includes interesting news and downloads for Sharpened Steel. Unfortunately, the forums won't allow me to link you to the page, but hopefully it shouldn't be too difficult to find.
And lastly, Sharpened Steel has been granted the 100% clean award by Softpedia. This means that Sharpened Steel contains absolutely no malware whatsoever, if you were ever in doubt. Once again, I cannot link you to the page due to forum restrictions, but Sharpened Steel can also be found on the Softpedia website, along with its 100% clean tag.

I guess that's all the latest news, and I hope you check out the latest updates! :)
