Update 9/14 & 9/21

2012-09-21 06:29:23 by revolverroach
Updated

9/14
- Fixed bug that caused game to slow down if Equip screen is repeatedly opened/closed
- Fixed issue with item de-syncing when switching between characters
- Fixed bug that made characters stop animating

9/21
- Updated UI
- Updated Graphics: now using all old sprites as placeholders for final graphics
- TODO: Combat Engine

Finally back. Work kept me busy with back-to-back rush projects. Managed to eke out a bugfix last week although I wasn't able to post. Still, some people did notice.

New version today, mostly graphical updates. I'm almost done connecting my combat engine to this latest build. Just a few more fixes and it'll be ready for some proper testing.

As you can plainly see, MR2 will NOT be out in time for Madness Day. However, I do look forward to playing and watching all the Madness related content that will be flooding the NG portal tomorrow. Also looking forward to playing an hour or two of Borderlands 2. However, I am royally pissed that the Siren's Phasewalk is gone. Instead, I get some sort of choke hold. Bah. Nothing better than walking into a group of bandits undetected then exploding into existence. It always reminded me of Dio's ZA WARUDO. Still, if B-Lands 2 doesn't click with me, I've still got Dark Souls waiting on the shelf.

Anyhoo, beta will continue, combat coming soon, and advanced Helluva Madness Day everyone!

Update 9/14 & 9/21

dude... I mean.... I'm one of the beta testers, and I seriously think Madness Retaliation is the only Madness game that exists who can be said as fun as Madness: Project Nexus.
But you haven't posted ANYTHING for 4 whole month. Unless you're having trouble with your internet again, you could leave a message for the delay, and such.
LEAVE SOMETHING WE CAN READ SO WE CAN WAIT IN PEACE

I'm starting to think he's dead :P

someone has twitter or something where we could find out 'bout him, and see he's alright?

@Jabalias22
Just google revolverroach and do some simple research. He's certainly alive and well, though I have no idea why he abandoned(?) this project.


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-01-26 13:10:22

Ok, Jake... now, why has he abandoned this? nobody knows... but FFS... i just hope he apologizes!


JakeTiDeJakeTiDe

2013-01-26 17:31:05

@Jabalias22 Good question. Maybe pester him a bit on twitter, etc?


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-01-27 06:51:49

@JakeTiDe IDK, I don't have twitter, but maybe someone should annoy him a little bit and ask why in earth he forgot about us! and the big question: is he going to do the game? because it looks as if he couldn't finish it due to a problem!

2013-02-01 17:47:00

Agh, shit. I think the project is dead. :(

maybe he is not done with the project maybe he is has a lot of stuff to do?

There may come a day when we forsake our promises. There may come a day when Life is too much to handle. There may come a day when hope is all but lost. BUT TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY!! Hold steadfast friends, for it is darkest before the dawn. XD but seriously. when he comes back. When he returns, we shall celebrate for weeks without end.


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-02-05 02:32:20

...if he comes back...

I do not care not even a damn bit if he makes the game the next month or the next year, I just want to be told how is the project doing, because right now I am thinking that he has problems... and not knowing if it's problems or not is worse than knowing it IS problems, if you know what i mean.


JakeTiDeJakeTiDe

2013-02-05 07:46:09

I guess he is just busy with work & life, so he put project on hold. Though it is kind of bad of him to not say a word here, since Madness Retaliation is ranked as best strategy flash game ever on NG with big fanbase.


SoloAceSoloAce

2013-02-05 21:27:41

Well, he has a twitter right? or something like that. im too lazy, but someone could check on him, maybe pester him a bit. or at least check with him, and say to post an update; even if its just to say that he cant do it right now.


SaitarSaitar

2013-02-06 02:52:28

This looks like the same story with Half Life 2 Episode 3.
We are still waiting because previous stuff was amazing.


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-02-06 07:22:09

In my opinion, he is having technical difficulties or some "personal" problems.
Someone with twitter should ask him for an answer.
Anyways, I'll wait another 2 months, but if in the 6th of april there's no update, consider me out of betatesting.

He isn't really dead. I expect. O.o


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-02-18 15:31:44

...And so it goes on

Is anyone even reading the comments anymore XD
Revolverroach, even Sonny 3 is going to come out before madness retaliation 2...


JakeTiDeJakeTiDe

2013-02-18 19:42:24

Lol, as a matter of fact I am waiting for Sonny 3, since 2 was great game, though a bit long.
Still, MR2 is on top of my want-to-play games. Maybe revolverroach doesn't care anymore? I vote for fan MR2 if it goes on like this for few months, with no reply whatsoever from RR.


SoloAceSoloAce

2013-02-19 00:47:34

Well, i still check in every few days. so yeah. It would be nice if he could just give the project to someone else like krinkles or maybe a dedicated and talented fan could help him. Oh well.


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-02-19 10:57:48

lol dudes I bet he is doing something important in his private life right now and we are being whiny bitches without knowing... OH, THE LIFE OF THE FAN!


SoloAceSoloAce

2013-02-22 13:51:47

Oh god...maybe he's contracted the worst possible Disease to a man.....CHILDREN! --DUN DUN DUUNNN--!!!

This guy already released the beta version of Madness Retaliation 2 to a few people, right? Wouldn't it be possible to get ahold of that and finish the game yourself?

Hmm...I'm still a fan because MR1 was such a great game. I think by now, most of your dedicated fans just want to hear something, anything, about this game and about you. Many casual fans who played the first game and got an inkling of the sequel are by now mostly off doing other things because the hiatus was so large. Yes, we know you're alive (despite some hysterical posters saying otherwise) but we want to know just one thing: what happened? If it was something personal that you don't want to share, I'm pretty sure everyone here gets that and we don't need to know. Quite frankly you don't owe anything to us, an explanation or a game. But still, it would be nice to have some sort of closure on this whole deal so we can either go back to remembering MR1 as one of the best games of its kind rather than the promise of something even bigger to come. While I long for the day I might see your frontpaged sequel on NG, I think I've finally made my peace with this almost series. Thank you for an amazing game.


Jabalias22Jabalias22

2013-03-01 15:56:09

Waow, dude, he hasn't still finished it XD
Man, I even had time to finish Amnesia:TDD (:O)

I've been following his Twitter and tweeted him about the status of MR2 about three weeks ago. He hasn't responded. It appears that he's abandoned MR2. I can understand that. I'm rather annoyed that he didn't tell his fans though.

First Pico 2, now this. Newgrounds has so much potential, but while well established developers also put tons of hours in, Newgrounds developers have to do it almost singlehandedly, and pretty much for free. It's completely reasonable for people to not want to put so much of their life aside for something with no return value.


SoloAceSoloAce

2013-03-28 20:37:03

So, guessing from the posts below and his twitter and stuff. im guessing that he's done, at least for now....To anyone looking for a good game, i recommend Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4. Definately fun.

I will just check his account periodically. EBF4 was kind of disappointment since the introduction of pay-only stuff. I get that people want to have something back for all their work, but he could've do that in less intrusive way - you should be able to buy extra stuff but also there should be a way to get those items through some ridiculously hard fights or quests. Earn on impatient ones and award the patient.
Still waiting for RevolverRoach to come back here - I love hopeless cases ;)


SoloAceSoloAce

2013-04-10 02:07:27

Yeah. but when uyou look past the buy only items..its pretty fun. On topic though...i do still have a small hope.

ok it's may 2nd 2013. no one is saying anything. obviously this game stuff is taking a long time but atleast give us some more news to update us on any progress.

I almost want to say MR2 is dead, but I doubt that being he has already released a beta. What I really think is happening is that the game is having a shit ton of bugs and he is having some serious problems. I bet at this point that the game will either be released at an earlier stage of beta were there are less bugs, revolverroach will just say fuck it and release the current version, or we wont see MR2 come out for a very long time, or ever. Though I can't be sure sense SOMEONE HASN'T FUCKING POSTED ANYTHING IN EVER! Come on man, that unacceptable.
