Actually, the demo was not compatible with the last saves, so no worry. ;)
(If you tried to use old saves the game will run but there will be database bugs so it won't be a good idea anyway).

But what you already did won't be completly the same, I've added new things and polish so I hope restarting won't be a chore.

You guys already played a lot of this game, I have to thank you for this, even doing videos of your playthrough which was really useful.
You rock!  :D

Already have like 12GB+ of video I need to upload :wacko:

I noticed that you fixed a lot of things I pointed out last time. Everything's going pretty smooth so far. The difficulty really hits hard after the second tourney--especially with a lack of healing items. I probably should follow the story line first and unlock new abilities. Went to the hideout and got trashed on by the boss there.

EDIT: Still says Strenght in menu
And does Survival even do anything? I haven't seen anything happen on-map after battles yet.

Yeah, it's kind of open at this point, you can technically do the differents "scenarios" in the order you want. I've seen players doing this hideout first by forcing through it multiple times. But, you're right, if you do other stuff first you'll level up naturaly and have more Simurions to tackle harder dungeons.

Oh thanks, I missed the most obvious one. :P

Mmh, Survival is a little hard to understand I guess.
In fact, when you do battles, the Survival percentage increase from 0% to 99%. The more battles you do the higher the percentage becomes.

To use the aptitude, you need to go to Aptitude/Use and choose Survival. (You'll see the percentage there).

You can only find stuff in "dangerous areas" (when you can have random battles that is). Try to search when you have 99% to have the best chance to find something. The item you find depends of the type of area you are in (forest, mountain, cave...)

Basically, in any dungeons or places where you have battles in the wild, you can do several battles (between 1 to 10) there search for a free item.




By the way, save regulary, there's still some rare and random freeze in the game, that I couldn't fix yet.

Well I managed to play through it and not freeze at all, but I was also saving regularly anyway. Overall, the game is perfect I feel. It is a bit difficult at some points, but really not to bad and really the only hard part is after the first arena battle. During that time your bots are pretty weak and items cost a lot, so i died several times (only 5 in total this time according to scientist lol). However, it seems a lot more manageable than the last time i played, and I had not problem progressing. Really enjoyed the arcade, probably going to go back and finish that by getting all the optional items.

One bug that I experienced (not sure if intended or not, but seems weird) after you reach the 3rd arena boss and lose, the steam in area 3 never shuts off. That means you have to walk through it to get to the final boss again, which starts you off blinded if you dont have antiblind items or skills. Just wondering if its a bug or intended to make it a bit more difficult.

I also feel bad that my sister's sim was so weak XD i woulda liked to see her do something with it haha. I feel that it would be harder if she recieved atma instead of dholly but even then, her bot only has around 200 hp and my pony 1 shot it lol.

Anywho, still going to keep playing it as i haven't gone through all the areas with grass and rocks yet. Like I said, the game feels great this time around. Difficult but fun. Good job :P

Thank you very much! I have to say that you guys are really great giving feedbacks and you've followed me since quite some time, here, I'm very grateful! I'm also very happy to see that all the work had payed and the game is fun and, now, quite robust. Sometime, when you work on something for years you can't really tell if it's still good. :)


By the way, I realised that it's impossible to have compatible savefiles through demos because how RM 2k3 works. A lot of the database is written on the savefile at the very start, so, let's say, if I change stats or skills of a Simurion it won't update correctly if you use old savefiles in newer demos. That's a shame. So for the next demos, don't feel forced to play them each year lol. Since the game is now quite long and you did the begining at least 3 times. Just wanted to tell you that. I'll update the version maybe each year or each 2 years but since it won't be finished before 2020 it's ok if you don't play each new versions. Anyway, thanks for playing!!

Oh no, it's not supposed to happen. It's a bug indeed. Thanks for that.

Mmh, true, I will work on this in the future.
I didn't want to give it a big HP boost like other bosses since it's a forced battle and you have no way to level up (because you're stuck in the town) I didn't want to make it too difficult, but since you need to finish the 3rd arena to get there I guess it's ok to buff it a little. :)

Just gonna list some bugs I found.
(click to show/hide)
- Was sunny in Holon Plain. Simurion evolved. Suddenly raining, but BGM still playing. Encountered sunny simurions, but Water Regen still worked. Moved to another map and rain graphics stopped, but screen still dark and Water Regen still worked. Went into farm building and came out...sunny again.
- Vessel Soul was unusable
- Anti-Burn says "Fixes Amnesia"

Questions:
- How exactly does Soul Synch work? It feels so random at times. Whole team is getting 0%, then randomly one guy gets like 40%. Then it just went back down to 0% again.
- Will there be more hints regarding what stats evolve certain simurions? The Flybot one was nice.
- Are there any simurions in this demo that don't have their evolved forms implemented yet? Mainly asking so I don't waste my time :P

Great finds!

-Mushiba name and Anti-Burn description are now fixed!
-This tree tile, damn! :P (Update : Fixed)
-For the ------- hardware. It's more serious. It's either the unequip or after an upgrade. The Simurion is set to be an Hybrid but is a Genetic. I need to investigate which one is it. (Update : Fixed)
-Holon plain bug seems really bad, never seen this actually even when I tried to rebuild or upgrade a Simurion during sun or rain. Gotta check this. Do you remember which Simurion evolved?
-Oops, I missed to make Vessel Soul usable, you're right. That's to bad, the Simurion was actually playable. (Update : Fixed)

It feels random when a Simurion is hard to catch, you're right. It should be better when you'll buff your Synchro rate with relics or items in the future, I guess. I've made a formula that is not random actually, it's in fact less random than a Pokeball in Pokemon games but luck is a lot more important when it comes to synch with harder Simurions or Simurions with HP, or both.

I'll go into details if you're interested, here's how it works:
-Synchro should be equal to 100.
-First, a roll is done between 1 and 100.
-Then it adds +20, +40, +60, +80 or +100 more depending of how many stuff you have to buff synch rate (the Add-on Leaves of Harmony is one of them). For most of this demo, you don't have any of these buffs, so it's mostly +0.
-After this, for each type of Simurions it adds or removes to the result depending of the "synch difficulty". For instance, Mushiba has a +50 and the most difficult Simurion of this demo has a -50.
-Finally, it takes the current HP of the target, divided by 5, and removes the result from the total. And this, is the Synch rate.
-If you are below 100 and try again, the result won't be reset. It carries over the next try by adding itself to the next result. So you have chance to increase turn by turn your synch rate but if you have bad luck and the first random roll is very low you can reach 0 and then all progress if gone.

Concrete example, if you have a Simurion with "synch difficulty" of +10 and current HP is 75:
-Let's say you roll: 50
-You have no synch buff so it's: 50 + 0 = 50
-Synch difficulty is +10 so it's: 50 + 0 + 10 = 60
-Simurion has 75 HP remaining, so it's: 75/5 = 15 ; 60 -15 = 45
-The synch result is 45%.

If you try another time, with the same exact roll of 50 at the begining it will be 90%. And you'll get 100% at the third try.

Will there be more hints regarding what stats evolve certain simurions? The Flybot one was nice.
Yes! For now, since it's a demo and a lot of things change I don't give a lot of hints. I'm also curious to see if people manage to find without the hints in the first place. But in later versions there will be more hints like this, maybe not early in the game to let people find for themselves. Also, for now, the Simu-Com pages don't have descriptions like the Pokedex have. I plan to gives hints in these pages too. (An update of the Simu-Com will be made this year, it's the final big menu change I plan. The Simu-Com is OK now but since there's a lot of Simurions it would be better is it's more user friendly to use.)

Yes, you're right to ask this, in fact, a lot of later Simurions don't have their upgrades yet in the game.
I'll give you the full list of upgradable Simurions for this demo in spoiler...
(click to show/hide)

Some can upgrade but maybe it's hard to find how (like Takron). If you want to know, just ask, it's not major spoiler imo. ;)


Thanks for the feedback! :)


EDIT : Oops, sorry, in fact Takron upgrade is not possible in the demo. It's available juste after that. My bad.

I think it was Hion.

Here's the playlist:

Didn't record my complete gameplay, but let's just say that I was mainly trying to evolve everything and find what Simurions were good. Third tournament was extremely easy with my super team of Water types and two healers.

I'm going to watch this!  :P

Oh, ys, 3rd arena can be very easy if you don't go to soon. Maybe I should make it a little more challenging.

I don't think it is necessary to make the 3rd arena more difficult. I went straight to it and could not complete it with my team. I had to go back and catch a few water sims (in the end, i think i only used one). But basically i had to not only catch a couple but level them up a good amount before the gym became easy for me. The thing that made it so easy for kk20 was that he spent literally that entire time grinding when I was continuing the story. He went with a super high level team full of water types so it was easy xD
