Shouldn't this be in the new megadrive games thread? Is that being updated?

Also why is he limiting himself to 1 MB ? He says a real 1 MB cart is easier to make than bigger ones. Why is that? Isn't it just cheaper or are there other reasons?

Anyway the homebrew scene is getting bigger!

Anyway the homebrew scene is getting bigger!

The cost of the eprom from 1MB to 2MB is nominal, maybe $0.30 to $1.00 at most, while 4MB eproms are about $1.50 more. PCB's for all sizes can be found in donors less than $1, but these are all based on what I've seen and experienced. Maybe where the creator lives, it's not that cheap? Or maybe they aren't knowledgeable in that area and were given some false information.

It appears he's still updating it, as he updated/posted in his thread yesterday or the day before, on the Devster forums: http://devster.proboards.com/thread/945/sms-brawl

maybe he was referring to more complexity in memory mapping or in the coding process anyway, I know nothing about this

I watched the videos earlier today. This is such a great effort! From what I read, this is his first effort programming a game such as this! I am really interested to see how he tweaks the game in the coming months! It looks great!

And he will !

Hello everyone, since you're talking about my game, I thought I could as well come here to talk about it with you ;)

That's it, I wasn't knowledgeable in that area and thought wrong about the subject.

I would have never thought that we would see Master of Darkness featured in a new game! Excellent! One reason I like this homebrew effort is because it features so many forgotten characters! Great job!

Hello everybody !

New version :


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj3bvAvnwVQ

This looks like an awesome project. I have but one little suggestion: The life bars are cool but they look backwards compared to what most people are used to seeing. Yellow usually represents remaining life and red represents depleted life. Anyway to flop the colors of the life bar?

Bonaf
07-17-2014, 06:01 PM
You're not the first one to tell me that. Do that really bother people ? I can change that easily but I like to make a change from usual conventions :)

BTW I'm quite happy to discuss with you since I really like Gamesack ! It's without contest my favourite retro videogame show on Youtube !

Joe Redifer
07-17-2014, 06:13 PM
Thanks! It's your project so you can handle it the way you wish. If it were my project life would be yellow and death would be red, but it's not my project. :)

Anyway I am keeping an eye on this one because I'd like to feature it in our next Homebrew and Hacks episode. That won't be for a while so no rush or anything.

Bonaf
07-17-2014, 06:27 PM
I'd be honored to have it featured in a gamesack episode.
I'll take my time to finish and polish the game anyway. I think I still have a few months to go.

I played a game once (possibly Terminator NES) where the lifebar colours we're flipped and it throws me off everytime.

This however, looks like a good game, which Terminator NES isn't, so even if the lifebar colours are flipped I will enjoy it regardless.

Looking nice, maybe someone could redraw all characters (faithfully) but in the same color/art style ?

Bonaf
08-10-2014, 02:44 PM
I could try that, but I'm not sure the result would be that great (the main problem would be to recolor the whole picture). Besides, mixing the styles has its charms too.

Bonaf
08-15-2014, 01:07 PM
I've tried some cleanup and redrawing of the characters, to homogenize the drawing.
Here is a test on some selected characters :

I don't know how i missed this, but it's a pretty cool project.

Also, i would like to second this:

I like this project and would like to ask you: Is it possible to include a playable game character Chapulín Colorado (The Red Grasshopper) of the game Chapolim x Dracula? It would be a nice addition, and also would give popularity in Latin America. Already, Thanks.

It's a pretty popular character in Brazil as well, where the Master System was a big thing and remains very popular.

This is the game, which is a Hack made by Tec Toy of the game Ghost House:

Bonaf
09-08-2014, 02:29 PM
I'll give you the same answer as I just did on youtube :

Sorry, I decided to stick with Sega characters only. Besides, I grew up with the european Master System and the characters from the Tec Toy adaptations don't really appeal to me.

But when the game's finished I'll release all the sources on a website, so If anyone is interested to create a "brazilian" hack of the game (with Sapo Xule, Monica, el Chapulin...), I won't have any problem with that !

Hello everyone,

The game was advanced enough so I could make a "beta version" physical cartridge out of it, that I offered to my brother as a gift for last Christmas (thanks to Redfield1 for making the cart).

This is what it looks like :

http://david.bonafonte.free.fr/images/smsb_cart.JPG

BTW, I'm still (slowly) working on the game !

At last all the animations done by Axel Grimard are in the game.
Here is a video with all of them (spoiler alert : you'll see the hidden characters) :


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ex_1LKUzc3c

Also, scoring has been added to the story mode, and you can see your hi-scores from the main menu.

Hidden characters? Awesome! Having this dynamic compels the player to progress further in the game. Nice job on the label, insert, manual design. I'm sure your brother was pretty stoked to play the game after receiving it as a gift! It's good to see that you are still working on the game! It looks great!

Well, as you pointed it, the fact that the link doesn't change is convenient, and it wouldn't be the case if I'd use a naming convention with different file names.


I'm sure your brother was pretty stoked to play the game after receiving it as a gift!

He was pretty stoked indeed, and mostly suprised at first, he didn't expect it ;)


I hope the powerups will do that

I'll try to do my best, but don't expect a very deep gameplay, my main goal is still to stay pretty close to the original games and their gameplay.

Is that a port of "Who Dares Wins" (or Who Dares Wins II) for the C64? The Level Design looks very familiar...

Nice spritework at any rate though!

Don't expect a full game ! It would be too much work and I have other projects before that. But I admit a side-scrolling A-RPG like Zelda 2, but in the Phantasy Star universe, would be pretty sweet !

Get rid of a few bug, add the last power ups and arena interactions, and finish the sound effects.
It should take a few more months at my current slow work rate.

As I said earlier, I don't think I'll make a full game from that. My next project will probably be more personal (i.e. I don't plan to use any existing i.p.).

I'd like it would ! But I'd need 6 palettes and the MD/Genesis only have 4...
