Update

Hi everyone,

Some news, good and bad.

Bad news is that my hard drive crashed and I lost about two weeks of work.  (I do make backups which is why I only lost 2 weeks not all of it) so that kind of kicked me in the pants and made me a little hesitant to redo work.

Good news is that I am currently working on a not-R-rated game with some friends.  It's taking up a lot of my time but is very rewarding.

Bad news is this means I don't have the time to devote to Avindale.  :(

I don't want to say that I won't be doing any more development work on Avindale, but for the immediate future I don't think I will be able to work on it much if at all.  Sorry :(

I'll update this blog if that changes or if I put out a new game update.

    2. Hey, the v0.55 download link isn't working anymore, could you reup a new one?

    3. Yes... it crashes when I start the game.

      Also, I notice that the .ini file mentions "Data\Scripts.rxdata" but there is no data directory and there is no scripts.rxdata file.

      So it looks like the upload is incomplete.

  8. He hasn't said he'll drop this game completely, just give it time and see how things turn out in the long run.

    Also, can anyone give me any tips on the Eidolon fight? I'm at level 5 and I get crushed in 2 turns (2x Mass Water as soon as the battle starts, everyone dead but Baron - there aren't any enemies left to level/grind)

  9. Such, hopefully this game will be finished but if it ever does it wont be until far in the future.

    @Dasanko if you mean ed and his axe it usually takes me a while but I just use my second person to heal the first person he attacks. There is a noticeable pattern with who he attacks and as long as you pump out your strongest attacks for a few turns you should be able to beat him. If nto try and get the fish guy in the undergrounds

  10. I hope you will be able to get more of this done in the future. Take your time, never the less.

    I think this game is amazing! It is one of my favorite games. I don't think there will be another that will be quite as good.

  12. Hey did anybody find the secret level that was in the latest version? I don't remember anybody commenting on finding it.

    It's not that hidden.

    1. Yeah, you mean the disco level ? I loved it, boss was hard as hell due to crystals popping non-stop. Nothing happens after that, though.

      Don't know if already mentioned but, about the port, there is an inaccessible chest before going to the boat.

      Also, when you have to choose to reveal yourself or to kill the guards, if you kill the guards, you won't never reveal yourself anymore and then you can't get the girl in the bar.

    2. Hmm you should always reveal yourself when you encounter the guards, I'll look into it.

  13. Does anybody have the .55 version that they could add a link to or send it though email? The link here only takes you to illivid download page with a virus and all other links are dead. Please and thank you.
