Eroico Revision V7


Download(V8.1)

New version of the Eroico Revision. (Redone animations, revised CGs, gameplay changes)
Note: Old unlock files still work, and now Noaika pre-order files will unlock Eroico as well.

  1. Can confirm that the cgi scaling is still a issue. I had to disable DPI upscaling from the compatibility menu for the V7 exe before the pictures display as intended. The rest of the game is fine of course, only the cgi have this issue.

    I also noticed that changing directions while blocking feels a bit clunky. If I run to the right and hold down block, then press left to turn around, the knight will not turn unless I have released the right button before pressing the left (even if I later release left while still holding right). In the heat of combat this sometimes makes the knight stuck blocking in one direction when what you really wanted to do was a fast turn. It's not a huge issue but it comes of as a bit jarring since the rest of the game plays so smooth. Turning around when not blocking works perfectly fine.

    The horizontal lunge (down, left/right, attack) is also very unreliable and I'm not sure why. Sometimes it simply doesn't want to trigger. I'm well aware that this and the last issue might be because of my particular keyboard but wanted to report on it anyway in case you see the same at your end.

    Keep up the good work. This is one slick game. I'm really enjoying Eroico now, possibly more than Kurovadis!

    1. Fixed it. Changed the way pressing directions works in general. Now it does the right thing for moving, too.

      As for the DPI thing, I disabled it in the exe, but I guess it doesn't carry over?

    2. Awesome!

      Ok, if the exe settings don't carry over then the best solution is to fix it through GM I think. I did a quick search but couldn't find anything. But I wonder why the upscaling is only targeting your cgi screens... Is there any window settings in GM that are applied to your other rooms that the cgi rooms don't have? Like 'borderless-window vs fullscreen' or some kind of scaling you apply to only the normal rooms.

      If you use windows 10 you can go to display settings -> "Change the size of text, apps and other items" and set it to above 100%. This should allow you to reproduce the bug (assuming you enable DPI scaling for the exe again) so you can easier test for solutions

    3. I'm still on 7

      As for the CG thing, there isn't a way to fix it in GM 8.1. The game is a low resolution scaled up, whereas the CGs need to be displayed at 1920 x 1080 in fullscreen. In the future this wouldn't happen because I'd just do pixel art CGs, and later GM has better options for scaling. But for Eroico, there isn't really a perfect solution.

    4. I still have the sluggish block turning on 7.1. The best way I can describe it is that if I tap left and right fast then the knight will dance around like you would expect. But if I hold down the block key and tap left and right fast the knight will lock to one direction instead of turning back and forth. This makes changing direction while blocking feel weird.

      But as I said it might be my keyboard. You'll have to see if you experience any difference in turning back and forth fast when blocking compared to just standing.

    5. Yeah don't sweat it about the gci thing. I didn't even notice it was a problem at first because they look surprisingly normal even when zoomed in. I just brought it up because it will probably affect many users (about anyone with win10 and a high res). If I stumble upon a easy fix I'll let you know

      Delete
    6. Dunno what to tell ya about the block thing. Doesn't happen for me *shrugs*

    1. So what has been changed difficulty-wise? It doesn't seem any different.

      Delete
    2. Platforming sections are different, and attack hitboxes were made larger and stay out longer (on all difficulties). Other than that there are no differences. The difficulty doesn't affect any platforming in the first area.

      Other than that, bosses lost some of their BS attacks. In general the difficulty isn't much different.

      Delete
    3. Ah, it's hard to tell if switching to a controller helped or if it was the hitbox changes. I just hope I'll be able to get through Noaika.

      Delete
    4. I wouldn't worry about Noaika; the difficulty is far more casual. As for Eroico, I just didn't want to change Eroico to the point of making it an entirely different game.

      Delete
  5. There are some problems in gallery mode - enemies. At the level-3 map, the speed become too fast to control when Vsync is turned off. This won't happen at lv1 or lv2 map. Also, at the lv3 map, some graphic crush are found.

  6. Make a Patreon where you monthly update Eroico with even more content instead of just sprite animations. I would support the hell out of you.

    1. Noooooope. lol

      I won't be touching Eroico again. Maybe someday I'll do a game thats meant to be updated with content, however I would do it with a new game, rather than Eroico. Eroico was fine for the time, but it's pretty rough around the edges, and working with it is limiting.

      Delete
    2. Aw. But yea it will work with any game like Eroico.

  8. Is there supposed to be an empty space on the level 2 gallery left of the mummies? I would assume that the singing enemy (siren?) is supposed to be there. Unless it's on the level 3 gallery (which I haven't completed yet).

    1. I keep trying to download the new demo, but it says the link is down due to traffic. Is there anything else I can do?

  9. Bah, accidentally posted my question in another dudes thing. But I can't download the new demo files to get the new version of Eroico, it keeps saying the dropbox links have been disabled due to traffic, and all the older files are also gone. It's kind of frustrating since I want to play the new version. :(

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just to 2nd that, also getting some kind of error "You don't belong here" not sure if that is the sites way of joking and saying the file is missing or what but can't get it either.

  11. Links appear to be broken perhaps go back to using mega.nz?

    1. Link seems to go to jumpusercontent and file is marked as dangerous. :\

    2. By what? It's a direct link to a cloud service file. Does it take you to a different page?

      Delete
    3. Google Chrome is what marked the file as dangerous. However this has not happened with any previous links on past sites. I've never downloaded a file from jumpusercontent before which is where your "http://jmp.sh/KuVKSgR+" link took me.

      Delete
    4. It should be doing this,

      Dunno what to say about it unless I see more people with the same problem. Do you have some kind of internet security thing?

      Delete
    5. Not at all just a vanilla chrome installation, seems it is working like you showed but I was just remarking about it being flagged as a dangerous file unlike previous links.

      I'm not a huge fan of dl sites I don't normally use and am just being cautious.

      Delete
    6. It seems this new download link isn't marked as dangerous by chrome, I'm just going to assume it was a bug with a version of Chrome.

  12. This game is a lot harder than I remember it being, lol. Getting my ass kicked before even the first checkpoint when playing defensively.

  13. Hey there Kyrieru. There's a little bug (7.8) when you lose against the first boss during the animation. The camera moves to the top-left of the level cropping the two characters.

    1. Hey there again Kyrieru. Thanks for fixing it. I've been comparing the new animations with the old ones and I must say that you've made an outstanding work. Thank you for that. This little gem of a game is really worth the effort.

      Anyway I found one more little thing : the possibility of falling back intentionally (left bumper on gamepad) makes you invulnerable for the time you lay on the ground. Could be used to avoid being beaten during some phases in bossfights.

      Delete
    2. That's... intentional, lol.
      I personally can't beat the boss without it and I'm grateful it's there.

  19. I must be getting worse at these games... the second level, room with a bunch of spikes and boxes that boost you up when hit. Very frustrating. Died so many times, just didn't want to continue. Nice animations and play, otherwise.

      In the revised version, there are additional blocks that make those segments much, much easier.

      On Easy difficulty, there are loads and loads of these blocks; the platforming sections become trivial.

      I just played through the game on Normal difficulty. Never died, and the platforming segments were very easy.

      Only on Hard difficulty does the game retain the original platforming sections, and even then, I'm pretty sure the new and larger hitboxes on your attacks make them easier anyway.

      At worst, practicing with the red boost blocks (the ones above safe ground) to properly learn how they propel you around should be enough to make you better at dealing with these sections.

      Delete
    2. On the easiest difficulty setting you re-spawn at the beginning of every room, so I can't make it much easier than that...

      Delete
    3. Jeez, seriously? Coming from one who toughed it out from having to start ALL over again and again, that's super generous. Don't see why anyone would complain about the difficulty if it's that easy for them, but aight...

      Should be soon... but if you're here, it probably doesn't matter to you; you can use your DLSite unlock file with the download link on this page, so you don't need to wait for the DLSite version to be updated.

    1. Well, first I'm going to finish my patreon stuff and then close it. After that, how much Eroico makes from the new sites will determine what I do.

  24. By the way, if anyone knows. Is it possible to adjust controller support? I use a PS4 controller and its a bit odd using [] to jump and O to attack. Didn't really see a way but I guess I could always try a program for it.
