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!
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?
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
I'm still on 7As 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.
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.
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
Dunno what to tell ya about the block thing. Doesn't happen for me *shrugs*
Hi Kyrieru! I nned to tell you your game is incredibly AWESOME! You are a genius xD.
Booooo~ Ghost-chan still wants some love.
Posted that right on YouTube, nice. lolLet me know when you update your dlsite listing. I check in on them from time to time to see how they are doing.

So what has been changed difficulty-wise? It doesn't seem any different.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks. Fixed it.
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.
Noooooope. lolI 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.
Aw. But yea it will work with any game like Eroico.
Eroico sequel when
Like 4-6 games from now.
Did Save Point Loli ever have a name?
*checks her ID*Name: Loli, Save P.Age: 117 years oldAddress: 1 Monstergirl Cstl, Monstergirl LandDietary Requirements: Semen 20 times a day...hmm...
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).
Nice catch, Fixed it.
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?
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. :(
Switch back to mega.
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.
Links appear to be broken perhaps go back to using mega.nz?
went back to mega.
Link seems to go to jumpusercontent and file is marked as dangerous. :\
By what? It's a direct link to a cloud service file. Does it take you to a different page?
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.
It should be doing this,https://i.gyazo.com/74f90dfee170f485c9f14bdd8de4a2d1.gifDunno what to say about it unless I see more people with the same problem. Do you have some kind of internet security thing?
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.
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.
This game is a lot harder than I remember it being, lol. Getting my ass kicked before even the first checkpoint when playing defensively.
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.
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.
That's... intentional, lol.I personally can't beat the boss without it and I'm grateful it's there.
Can't wait for you to drop this update on Dlsite. It's only been about 4 years, I'm sure your Japanese fans will be glad to know you're not dead.
The download link seems to lead me to a "This site cannot provide a secure connection" page.
It's fixed, hooray! ^^
The download link takes me to a "This site can’t provide a secure connection" page.
Hi its your-3d-stuff-looks-like-crap-guybought it cause I want to see if you can beat echidnawarsDX with your next game.
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.
On the easiest difficulty setting you re-spawn at the beginning of every room, so I can't make it much easier than that...
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...
Will you release a version for mac users?
When does you update on Dlsite?
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.
for some odd reason my version of the game wont load, at all. please help|!
Mine won't either, sad. I really wanted to play!
So what's your next goal? Are you going to do a Kurovadis rework or are you going full steam on noaika now?
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.
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.
Congratulations on remaking Eroico. It is always a pleasure (literally/figuratively) to see some old enjoyable games being remade :)
I still don't understand why the little ghost doesn't have any animation...I mean they're CUTE!Still, it was a good game, it's a good remake, so FinishedItOnHardMode/20.
quick question, it might be me being stupid and I didn't find it XD but if you bought the old version can you just download this or you have to buy it again? and is there anything I would need if it's the first one?
If you bought it you dont need to buy it again, the old unlock file with still work.
thanks ^^ .... now to look and see where I put the old game (muti flash drives XD)
Hey Mr.Kyrieru have you heard of Street Sharks?
The reason why I'm asking. Is because was wondering if you was interesting enter The Street Sharks Art contest. http://blazbaros.deviantart.com/journal/STREET-SHARKS-REBOOTED-Contest-661453778. I know your busy with Game Deving on Noaika. But I would love to to invite you to enter. If you have the time.
Doesn't really seem like my neck of the woods lol.Plus, I've got a lot of work to do, atm.
No problem! Thanks for at least taking your time to talk to me.:)
I'm gonna hazard a guess you dated this as 2020 to keep it at the top of the page.
It's safe to assume old save files aren't gonna work with the update, right?Still, was a great game when I bought it way back when, and I wouldn't mind having another go at it.
Some things wont work but some things will. The prog file which contains CG and enemy gallery data will always work though.
Download doesn't work. "Expired account."
Fixed....Back to Mega again I guess -___-
ERROR inaction number 13of Other Event: Room Startfor object room_exit_ob:Error opening file for writing.Any fix for this when going into next level?
Did you change anything in the text files?
Nope, I tried redownloading the file and restarting my computer, both didn't help. As far as I can tell it's random whether this error shows up. Sometimes I manage to get into the next zone but sometimes I just crash when I try to get into the next zone.
Would any sort of details help you out here?
It's so uncommon that there isn't really much to go on. Are you using windows?
Yes, I am using Windows 10.
i cant beleave you haven't posted for three years!
Absolutely beautiful update/remastered game. I'm going to play through this right now. Thank you for all that you do, and keep up the wonderful work. :)
>Praising the game to highest before even playing itLol.
I've played it before and had some of the animations already unlocked. What's wrong with playing though it again?
Oh hey just noticed Eroico on MangaGamer congrats dude~
Saw it on Nutaku, came here and found out it's updated to V8...
Is there any chance that Kurovadis will come to MangaGamer?
The timestamp says Tuesday, January 28, 2020.Is Kyrieru a timelord or something?
Advancing the clock by three years ensures that this particular post will remain at the top even when others are made after it.
So. What's the status? Will you release Noakia next (pronounced wrong I bet) or one of your smaller games?
One of the smaller games first, he's said several times.He's also been saying that for actual years, so who knows at this point.
First I'm going to finish the last two animations of my Patreon and close it. Then I'm going to release one of the small games.
bring us Noaika, just get it done and out the way. you'll be happy it is done and so will we. everyone's happy!
Is there a way to extract the sprites tho? I'm practicing pixel art myself and since I really like the way you make them I want to take a closer look.
Not really, other than doing it frame by frame yourself, or by looking at them through recorded video.
Hey Sir.Kyrieru Gamemaker studio 2 came out. http://store.steampowered.com/app/585410/?snr=1_5_9__300#app_reviews_hash. What your opinion on it?
It's better in most ways. Not much reason to use previous versions instead.
I see would you upgrade,if their a sale going on,or you was offered?
I got it a while ago, back when it was in beta.
I see. Sorry to ask so many questions. I'm trying to find a perfect engine for a 2D game.
Honest question here. Bought GamerMakerStudio1 a while ago. And I'm currently practicing with it and I must say I like this software. However would be a waste to learn with GM1 instead of GM2?
If you're just getting started with GM, then no, probably not. It isn't that difficult to make the jump to 2 when you want to, and GMS1 is probably easier to learn.However, GM2 has a lot of quality of life changes (such as layers in the room editor, auto tiling, etc) that make a huge difference, and depth works different than it did in GM1, so a few things that work different might throw you off temporarily.
Sunday, August 31, 2014You ruined it by showing a demo that had no business being shown.
Well this is confusing...What's "it"? By the reference to a demo, I would hazard that you're talking about Noaika, but I really can't be anywhere near close to certain.What's the date about? Again, I could guess that maybe your sentence is a quote from that date, but I'm even less certain of that than of the other thing.And can you elaborate? How did the demo "ruin it"?Communication relies on you providing enough information, context and/or framework for the people you're talking to to be able to understand what you're saying.Right now your post is just nonsense coming out of nowhere.
This was meant as a reply to the poster right above me, of course.
Pit people took 3 years, and is going to take one more in early access. And Behemoth is a group. I'm not surprised making a higher quality game is taking one person a long time as well. Why are you?
he keeps procrastinating on Noiaka, he's on his way to completing it now he's stopped to do something else like those animations, all he needs to do is concentrate on it since all he needs to do is the sounds/music and change it to GM2 then it's done according to him, he makes it sound like it's practically done!
I'm procrastinating in general. Not on Noaika specifically, but all the things I'm doing before Noaika.I have a bad habit of procrastinating on stuff I don't want to do (for example, I need to animate a blowjob for a patreon thing), but because I never have the enthusiasm for it, I keep putting it off, and yet I don't do other things (Like Noaika, or one of the other games) in the mean time. I sort of just meander around drawing, or looking for something to play ("after that I'll do the animation!"), but then realize there's nothing I want to play, and the lack of enthusiasm procrastination loop continues. Throw in the usual health problems and progress is slow.That's the main reason I want to get Patreon out of the way and end it. While sometimes I procrastinate with games, they have a lot of parts to them, and so if I dont want to animate, I can program, or make music, etc. Patreon animations were fun for a while, but I don't really have a passion for it.
So work first thing in the morning, and set daily goals for yourself. You need a Producer, man.Get your daily goals met early, then spend the evenings relaxing guilt-free. Never trust "Future you".
The problem isn't knowing what's wrong, or what to do, the problem is labeoufing it.
Morning meditative deep breathing into cold shower
I have the same problem as Kyrieru, what works for me is playing videogames co-op with friends instead of alone. Then after that I feel more recharged to do something that isn't as fun. Work, basically.But yeah, JUST DO IT, after finding something that helps take your mind off of things. Perhaps you've been doing this non-stop for too long without an actual break.
My game (demo) runs really slow for me for some reason (using Win 10). It's constantly slower than what the game is supposed to be and because of that it is unplayable aswell. Please tell me you have a clue on how to fix this?
Nvm seems like it was just a temporary glitch for me, restarted my computer and it began to run smothly again
Just downloaded the demo, I have to say that the animations are improved, more when you're knocked out. Still the controller is a big issue for the LACK of button personalization. I'll miss the animation of the kitties of V10.Overall, great game.
So... what's next Kyrieru?
Kyrieru ded confirmed
Nigga I beat cancer I was diagnosed with 2 years ago and you still couldn't release a fucking game. I really thought I'd die before you would release it, and I would be right if treatment didn't work. Get your shit together.
Did you get your cancer from reading this blog's comments? Because I'd believe it.
Oh look what have here a fanboy! Protecting his idol no matter what.
You realize you're all getting mad at an indie porn game developer for taking too long to release a game most of you will probably pirate, right?
Hey thanks for the projecting that most of us are pirates! And what you define as mad is stupid. Kyrieru exaggerates his promises and delivers zero games. And so people are complaining. There always has to be a certain amount of praise and critic and in my opinion kyrieru deserves the amount.
It's not as much a projection as is comparing the amount of downloads on official sites vs the amount of visitors on the blog, as well as people who explicitly said they wouldn't pay for it just cause it's taking so long. Does kyrieru take forever to release a game? Yes, but he isn't asking you to constantly donate to him or do anything on your side like other indie h-game developers do; and I'd rather have a late polished game than an early bugged one.
Good points. But we're not talking about "late". We're talking nearly two years beyond initial estimations. Sure, they WERE only estimations. But anticipating (And pre-ordering for many of us) something that takes several YEARS and is still in a nebulous and unknown state (Do we even have a concept of how complete or incomplete it is?) is immensely frustrating.Both the fanboys praising and the critics flaming are both testaments to how incredible the finished products are. We just express it differently.
Personally I also think the update quality from him has dropped somewhat. I just went back to check how long ago i pre-ordered and the demo came out (2.5yrs btw) and if you check out the stuff he was posting it actually felt like stuff was progressing. Now it's like "hey guys still got some stuff to do heath probs getting in the way and want to finish out the patreon animations" every month. I'm sure stuff is happening, but even if it's not something showy some "so music is interesting to make for a game, this is the software im using, this is some of the challenges im facing"
I can't really recall Kyrieru making a promise that he's broken.
You can't expect people on the internet to be reasonable or patient. There is a difference between pessimism and hostile behavior, but most people don't seem to know how to draw the line.
Uh , I think this is how situation currently goes (shorted version)1) at a latter part of 2014 , Kyrieru present "Noaika" (which very promising)2) he almost never publicly present any of "Noaika" progress (probably try not to ruin a surprise)3) people morale is shaking (obviously)4) people start to think that he became unpromising , and many started to angry.I thank you for trying to help him , but current situation is sensitive , even joking can backfired here.
A few corrections1) He showed updates kinda, I remember a silly comic to inform us of melee weapons.2) He released a quality demo. 3) He offers a pre-order to tide him over until its full release. 4) He then goes real quiet while re-working the game at much larger scale 5) He starts his patron animation. I could check but I'm a lazy bum and if memory serves he didn't mention the larger scale until a bit into the animations. But by then it was too late and an illness spread through his fans and they could only see one thing."You're too slow!" -Sonic
He just tries to be funny. Just cringe at him.
My opinion is I still lack of base information like "how many Noaika's content that Kyrieru already complete"- maybe Noaika has great amount of content , "or maybe nothing at all" - I estimate that Noaika will use 2-4 years to develop , so it still within my expectation.- I agree that morale stuff surely drop , but I rather not judge what I can not measure.don't worry Anon.3 , sonic's quote recognized.
I don't recall if it was opinion on my part or something he said, but the pre-order money was so much that he might have decided to make the game better to compensate. Since his original plans didn't match what he talked about later. I think a lot of the wait was attributed to him feeling more desire to improve things, which made it take longer to make.
sorry Mamono Assault Force , I put too much attention toward anon1/2/3.and ended up for forgotten you , my bad.
Is Kyrieru even fucking alive
Please wait for at least one month before asking more of this , it is too frequent and redundant.
It's been 3 months since the last post, but he's still alive. Posts on twitter every once in a while. Assuming he's doing the "shut up until I have something to show" thing.
Honestly Ky really just needs to post something to reduce frustration and let us know something is happening. He doesn't need to post anything significant either, just show us a background or a clip of some music he's planned. Even if it doesn't make the final cut it's something to let us know that progress is being made. Say what you will about him having no obligation to show anything, but the fact remains that his lively hood rests entirely upon interest in his games. By taking this completely silent stance he's alienating a great deal of people. I know he's mentioned before about not wanting to spoil anything, but at this point it's not clear whether Noaika is even a live project anymore. If you read this Ky, please, give us something. Anything at all. Even if it's about the side projects you've mentioned.
hes alive guys...he constantly updates his twitter
Amazing game, I came for the porn and stayed for the gameplay, I hope people start to make games like these more often.
