Thanks a lot for the feedback! It was all very helpful. I'll take these to heart. I would like to comment on a few.
For all the positive... I have nothing to say but thanks
For the constructive, I am indeed working on the save system. Right now the game makes a checkpoint every time a room is entered or exited. I somehow need to figure out how to make checkpoints only at certain points. I'm not sure how to code this (working on it!). And then this is what I'll use for the continue button at the beginning.
For the text... hmm, maybe I could make it a dark blue instead. Or just blue. I have no blue background, so there would be no clashing. I could also make it a hair bigger. And timing, yeah, I'll have to give it a run through or two and pay close attention to timing, maybe make it display a second more or half a second less.
I use that code for a few things, the depth = -y bit. A few things I wanted to always be in front of the character, a few things always behind. Yeah, checking my corn, its depth is just -9999. Maybe I'll change this. I think I did this so that the slimes hide behind it
Ahh, the death scene. Yeah, that could use work. Yeah, I already have something in mind.
Good catch with the shades while dashing! I'll fix that.
Oooh, that next one is disconcerting. Glitched through the tree, eh? Then slid up? That's not good at all. What's worse, I have no idea what would be causing it. When a room is entered, the x and y coordinates are saved. When the game is loaded, the old x and y positions are restored.
Unless... the file you're using is called SuperSlimeRevengeDemov7.exe, right?
Sheathing, yeah, I agree. Unless you're done a speed run or something, you'll probably have your sword out at all times. Not sure how I feel about the health restoring, but yeah, *something* more can happen.
I intend to add a third, chargeable attack. Does the heavy attack just not seem worth it at the moment? I could up the damage and knockback a little.
Oh, and I have not played Shining Soul II. I've played Shining Force I and II, and Shining in the Darkness, but not Shining Soul II. That's now on my to-do list
