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

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.

I can honestly say, im not surprised by this. If you dont alredy know, revolver has alredy probably given up on MR2 for some time. the comments on the other pages explain this if i remember correctly. oh well.

Is MR2 dead? The last update was this, September 21, 2012 and it's already May 21, 2013... Post something please... like... if you have given up already... or the progress of the game... anything that tells us what's happening in MR2...

Well, I will personaly wait, but still this is just plain rude to not answer at all. I don't mind project to be closed - it happens, people got better things to do than to code their bottoms away, create graphics, etc. It is understandable to get frustrated or lazy. But to deny to even answer the question "Is the project dead?" is really rude and offensive to the fans of the game. This is only a flash game, not AAA+ title, like Last Guardian that should have appeared on PS3 long time ago and there is no response from the team. @RevolverRoach, just close the project and end our hope, that will be better for everyone ;)

To tell you guys the truth, I honestly think that Revolverroach himself is dead. I'm pretty sure that he would tell us if he gave up, right? Besides, his last post is from last year. One could logically assume that in that time, he would have worked some, give an "I AM ALIVE" post, etc. Be it that he died or that a natural disaster struck and he is still recovering, the fact is, Revolverroach is no longer with us on Newgrounds.

Nope. I saw his Twitter and Steam account. Hes alive as a newborn baby. But yeah...he probobly quit the game.

2013-06-30 17:40:36

awhile back i was labeled a charlatan for saying he quit the game... But now a bunch of you are saying he quit or hes dead, so you know what. I'm not gonna say i told you so, but just know im the one laughing now.

Y'know, I finished Madness:Retaliation for the 10th time, playing only with melee weaps (I know, I mad... but I was bored and bet with a friend) and I thought "well, let's check how are things going around RevolverRoach's profile..." and I see this is more or less the same it was when I quitted.
Ironically, I usually am the patient one...

From the looks of his twitter, he's had plenty of computers fail on him, and has just left Newgrounds in the dust. Ah well.. We can still cherish Retaliation 1 for the gift that it is.

Why hast thou abandoned us!?!


ZEDSLAYERZEDSLAYER

2013-09-29 03:05:17

His twitter is pretty active so I know for a fact that he is alive. As well from what I read he has not posted anything about computer problems since this update. So looking at what I found I'm almost positive that he has given up on MR2....and didn't bother to say so. Finally, what i propose is to spam the ever loving shit out of his twitter so he will have to at least say he has abandoned MR2 or confirm it is still active. I just want to know for sure.

I still hope he'll return to us. It's sad to abandon a very promising game at the beta stage.

This is really like Half Life 2 Episode 3.

Anywhay Revolverroach can suffer from serious financial problems.
Or He just wan to give Us something unusual and cool.

2014-03-22 08:37:02

This is so sad... the way he disappeared or more like the way madness retaliation 2 has been abandoned... it really similar to Autumn War 2... I just can't understand how you can give up on a game and then give no sign of life...

2014-04-01 14:01:16

He DID send out beta versions to testers, right? Is there some reason why any of the beta versions never leaked?


cheatercatcheatercat

2014-04-18 10:59:44

the beta version is just a prototype of the characters moving around a field, like the battles in MR, if you're expecting there to be maps or something like that you're sadly mistaken

2014-05-01 15:09:08

Sooo... it's been about 2 years since your last update... I'm getting flashbacks of waiting for Half Life 3 (thats not come out yet either). Give us a sign Mr. Roach!

To all Newgrounders:

the project is dead. I request a little action to show our disappointment and un-faving him and his game. At least, is what I am going to do.

2014-05-29 16:19:40

romano4egromano4eg

Are you alive?


DragonOverlord2012DragonOverlord2012

2014-07-15 06:10:12

Okay, even Valve has some sign of activity in between releasing episodes of Half-Life that are shorter than two year periods. Let's clear one thing up right now: if you ask if he is still alive then you are a fucking nitwit. The guy has a Twitter account under the same username for one, although his tweets are protected because I assume like myself he likes his privacy (which I can obviously respect). I'm sure anyone that does follow him would be able to tell you he's alive.

Now, I only checked here for the first time since I left Newgrounds a couple years ago, and it's more than obvious to me that the project of Madness Retaliation 2 has been scrapped because it's become more work than it's worth to him. The same thing has happened a thousand times before to other artists better and worse than he, so just accept it and move on. RevolverRoach isn't dead, MR2 is.

PS I only posted this with heavy hesitation because I doubt this site has changed in the past couple years. When I last checked it was full of people whose only talent was being an asshole, and those who could animate only extremely rarely had any purpose or grasp on what comedy is. One of the biggest nitwits is Tomfulp himself, who I blame for setting the standard of intelligence on this site.

Ты где там потерялся?! Я запарился ждать MR2. Это просто эпичная игра, и если ты там жив, грех её не доделать.


SaitarSaitar

2014-08-24 15:27:15

Возможные причины простоя:
1) Слишком серьезные финансовые трудности (чувак еле сводит концы с концами, набрал кредитов, погряз в долгах и т.д.)
2) Творческий кризис (исчерпаны или отброшены все идеи)
3) Задуманное оказалось слишком крутым для Flash (как и с Project Nexus 2)

Oh. The second comment of this post was mine.. I just remembered that I was excepting MR2 very much indeed. about 2 years ago. Now I feel a bit sad..

I'm sure everyone here and their mothers are done waiting for this game so why don't we just make a fan based one? If we show we are serious maybe revolver roach will give us all the work he already made and we can work off of that. I'm a beta tester so we can get gather information from what the beta has to offer too. Anyone interested?
