Eroico update complete

Eroico Update




Download (V2)

Well, I've finished the update to Eroico. If you encounter any problems or bugs that I've overlooked, let me know. If you have any other small requests regarding the game, this is your last chance, since I won't be updating it after any fixes I do in the next day or so. 

Note: If you've already purchased Eroico in the past, then your unlock code still works; you don't need to buy the game again. (But hey, if you pirated before it then maybe now's the time to buy it *wink*). If you need the unlock code resent, send me an email. If you bought the game through DLsite, then the unlock code for that works with this.

And again, let me know if you see anything wonky. Chances are I missed SOMETHING.

Fixes in progress:

- CGs appearing zoomed in
- H-content turns back on after death
- Enemies in third area cant knock you down.
- Leftover debug ?
- Music doesnt play in ending
- Alleged Cat seizures
- Controller sabatoges keyboard usage. (If you have problems with a controller, unplug it, for now)
- Desert Boss peaces out mid-fight.
- Vampire gets fed up with waiting to H and leaves.
- implement alternate platforming sections for platforming
- Turned Vsync on by mistake = lower fps (Will add an option for this)
- Window mode does whatever it wants without your consent.  Can't do any more with this.
- Tree boss gets stuck under doorway like a scrub

  1. Is there anything like a changelog that we can view? I would love to see what updates there were to the game. Like is it just animations or was anything else changed?

    1. Would be tough to do a list, since a ton of things have been changed in small ways.
      Basically it boils down to;

      -H-Animations and some game animations
      -Sounds
      -Bosses have some different attacks
      -CGs are revised and 1920 x 1080
      -a ton of other misc changes

    2. Sweet, looking forward to playing again and seeing what's new.

  2. This is going up on Mangagamer eventually, right?

    I bought it once, but I plan to rebuy it there to show MG that there is a demand for H-action games.

  5. Whenever I start a fight with the first boss random numbers show up on top of eroico's body. Oh and catgirls get to have seizures if you are grabbed by something else and they have a ledge nearby

    Great job on the new animations, changing the pose on the end really makes a difference

    1. I've avoided it until now but I'm considering it. It would be Eroico, though, since a female protagonist wouldn't be as easily accepted by the mainstream.

    If the first boss uses her "jump/hover and spawn vertical roots from the ground" attack while she's under the blocks at the entrance of her lair, she'll warp to the roof.

    From then on she'll just dash around on top of the screen; you can tell because her feet are still visible.

    please fix windowed mode, there are a lot of problems with it.

    for starters dying but not being raped shifts the entire window to the top left so only the bottom right corner shows
    the cg forces the game window to a bigger size
    doing either of those re-centers the window annoyingly
    stretch doesn't work in windowed mode, it only mimics the last chosen size so x1 or x3
    there are a few more problems but those are more likely on my end, so i won't list them

  9. I think the site's Eroico page still has the old demo.

    Also, the game feels like it's running at a lower framerate than the old version? Should that be happening?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually, rather than a lower framerate, the game DOES seem to run decently and then quickly drop. It seems like whenever I enter a new area it runs fine, then drops as soon as I start going through it.

      Normally I wouldn't mind too much, but I'm recording a thing for Youtube and want the game to be represented as best as possible~

      Delete
    2. Yes, looks like I stuck vsync on by mistake. Without that the game should be faster than the OG.

      As for the page I'll update it soon, though the OG will still be available too.

  10. First off, great great update, love the new animations and sounds.

  13. I remember you saying that we'd be able to go back through doors in this one. As far as I can tell we can't. Not a big deal, just throwing it out there.

    Replies
    1. Basically I started porting Eroico to something, made the change involving doors, and then the idea of porting fell through. There were too many problems, and so I just went back and updated it in the old software. In retrospect it would have been mostly pointless anyway.

  14. Other than the release bugs. Would you say you're a lot more proud/happy with Eroico now?

      What little Japanese I used to know is mostly gone. It looks to be about the fireballs, but I can't be certain.

      Is it actually about the boss vanishing? Because, well, she vanished.

      It looked to me like she tried to teleport; there were two greyish smoke bubbles, one where she was standing and one further to the right of the screen, but she didn't reappear in the other smoke bubble.

      I tried waiting a bit to see if she was just outside the screen and would eventually teleport back in, but she never did.

      DON'T LEAVE ME, SUPER HOT IFRIT GIRL, I LOVE YOU

  16. The comment above makes me wonder, does the man Kyrieru reads Japaneses? Do you need to translate that with the power of google? I can try to translate that If you needed.

  18. If you're lucky/unlucky enough to receive a health item and lethal damage at or around the same time, the stage music cuts out as if you'd died. Seems like you can continue playing without problems, and if you take lethal damage again, you do get a game over. Not sure if this causes further glitches if you make it to a boss screen because I'm bad. Seems like a pretty benign bug, but... hey, just in case!

  19. Don't forget to send the update to Dlsite. That should net you more sells.

      Oddly enough, my controller wouldn't work with the old version anymore (too many bad drivers over time), but it works with this one.

      Keyboard doesn't, however. I tried using H to get around the 3rd stage enemies not being able to knock me down and noticed that none of the keyboard keys worked (aside from Esc, that key still works for me too).

      Delete
    4. I've got the same issue, only the Esc key works. I can move through the menu with my PS4 controller (Using DS4 windows), but I can't select anything.

    5. I managed to solve this problem for myself by uninstalling the program vJoy. If you have the program, uninstalling it might fix it.

  21. Love the new animations. Got downed by a catgirl immediately and was very pleasantly surprised. Really great to see you hard at work and see how it pays off.

    That said, this game is fantastic for people hardcore into platformers, but not so great still for anyone who wants to enjoy the H-content you put so much work into. Not because of any quality issues- besides the bugs already reported, the game is solid as hell. But the platforming segments, especially the ones with the boxes that you have to hit to gain altitude, are extremely difficult for someone who isn't well-honed and experienced when it comes to platformers. A lot of enemies also seem to be placed in exactly the right spot to knock you all the way back down to the beginning, just after finishing a series of well-timed jumps. From a player satisfaction standpoint, it can be extremely frustrating. And while some people might enjoy angry masturbation, I'm definitely not one.

    I think one thing that could remedy this is by severely decreasing the knockback when hit on easy mode. That wouldn't solve the box-jump issue but it would solve a lot of other frustrating moments I ran into. As far as the box jumps, maybe just increasing their hitboxes? I frequently get bounced ahead of the next one I have to hit, and then I have to start all over because by the time I turn around it's too late. Probably just a reflex issue on my end, but others might have the same problem.

    Another option for both would simply be to allow us to block in mid-air, maybe slowing our descent in the process. Not sure how much of a pain it would be to code, but I figured I'd throw the idea out there.

    That's not to say there's anything wrong with it, it's all very solid and I see the appeal to hardcore platforming fans. But it'd be cool if easy mode had a little extra easy-ness to it for scrubs like me who need to git gud, and for anybody who just wants a fap.

    Keep it up, dude. You're amazingly talented.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ehh, if you just wanna fap, you can probably find a savefile of the original version and use that to unlock the full gallery of enemies, also the game is wayyy easier than it use to be, also it seems the bottom of the hitbox of the slash attack has been increased, so its even easier now than ever to strike the jump blocks

      you've said it yourself, git gud

      Delete
    2. Tripoteur VentripotentJanuary 16, 2017 at 4:11 PM

      Are you using the spinning slash (Down + Attack while in the air) a lot? The move creates a rather long-lasting hitbox under you, so if you use it somewhat early, you'll bounce at the maximum possible height every time. Very useful to just bounce over enemies' heads too.

      Also, on Easy, the downward thrust (Down x2 in quick succession) will pretty much one-shot everything so you can safely land on top of enemies and kill them at the same time.

      Oh, and if you need to git gud, I recommend playing Wings of Vi. I mean, sure, you'll probably kill yourself within the first hour, and the best you can hope for is to get away with moderate self-mutilation. But if you survive, you'll never again think of Eroico's platforming sections as difficult.

  22. enemies gallery, top area:
    witches will launch above the screen if they move under the pillar to their right and try to go up while still under it.
    If bitten by a vampire and you get hit by an attack (the spray from other attacks or the other vampire trying to do the same bite attack) the vampire to will disappear. (if the two are trying to do it at the same time only one will disappear.)

    2. The short song that played on the "Thank you for playing" screen that comes after the final boss fight is missing.

      Delete
    3. 2 more bugs, both final boss related.

      For the boss attack that you can knock back with your sword, you have an effect to darken the room. If you spend that entire attack in the left corner of the room and keep knocking it back, then the effect to darken the room will end before the orb hits the boss the last time.

      If you defeat the boss while she is on the ground, her defeat animation will cause her to fall through the floor before the ending cutscene starts.

      Delete
  23. Whenever I load up the game, it seems to run on a very low framerate, around 15FPS. I've tried messing around in the Nvidia control pannel to see if that's causing issues but haven't been able to fix it. Same happens with the older Eroico, Kurovadis and Noaika as well. Runs fine on my laptop, but not on my desktop.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Not sure how it happened, but while fighting the second boss she poofed out of existence, never to be seen again. She was in the upper left corner of the stage and teleported, but never reappeared.

    ReplyDelete
  25. First the final boss is unbeatable. I won the ping pong battle 5 times and she still lives.
    Second great animations. But I really wish the animation alone would get more love than the cum animation. It feels like you've focused on that. And I didn't you know you would change that much that's why i voted on your poll like that.

    Anway I feel bad for pirating your game once. But since you are on of the very few not money hungry ones when it comes to this industry I bought your game. I mean 5 dollars is not much at all.

      I must have hit her with the ball at least ten times before I realized "OK, that's not how you beat her anymore" and figured that she isn't completely impervious to damage anymore.

      Delete
  26. One thing I noticed is the booster blocks behave a little oddly: They properly boost you up/diagonal/sideways most of the time, but they don't seem to do "down" - sometimes I just float slowly down and to the side while swording, sometimes I do zoom down and then go sideways once I hit the ground. I also can't reliably get downward-diagonal, but that might just be me sucking at precise jump-and-run inputs...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just played through it again, and I really like all the small little changes - it seems really polished.

    The only enemy with multiple sex scenes I've found was the vampire and only after seeing you mention it here in the comment section; are there more?

    You grayed out the debug bug, but the second boss still showed the numbers for me.

    The last boss didn't seem to die any earlier than before, even though you can attack him now.

    1. Tripoteur VentripotentJanuary 16, 2017 at 7:21 PM

      I was assuming those bugs have been greyed out to show that they have been fixed internally, not that they have been fixed in the release version... but I could be wrong; I haven't tried re-downloading.

      About the last boss, well... it may not look like attacking her makes a difference, but she'll live pretty much forever if you just use the balls to damage her. I'm guessing that she's been redesigned to live about as long as she used to, but only if you attack her in addition to playing ping-pong.

  29. Jesus christ, it was worth the wait. Some of the new animations are amazing. The witch animation before was my favorite, but now it's just, jesus. Even some of the animations I didn't care for too much before, like the old catgirl and gargoyle got some brilliant revamps. The actual stage layouts are great as always, and the music is still fantastic. A game definitely worth purchasing twice, at least.

  30. I remember buying this game YEARS ago, I have absolutely no idea where my code is. Is there some way I would be able to prove that I had bought it in the past?

  37. Glitch related to adult content. When starting a new game with Adult Content off, it works fine for the first life, then after using Continue the Adult Content has been turned back on. I haven't tested if this glitch still occurs if continuing from a checkpoint rather than the beginning of the game. I also believe it's a new glitch for the new build of the game, since I'd been playing it a bit yesterday and it never cropped up.

    Good thing I decided against streaming this live. Specifically because I was worried the Adult Content might glitch into existence. xP

      The saves are just text files. I guess you could mess around with them to see what you can and can't do, which might help you figure out why the game can't edit them.

      In the meantime, if you just want to start a new game, you could try to simply delete the appropriate save file manually and see if the game lets you use that slot. Hopefully there won't be issues when you pass a checkpoint and the game "autosaves" there.
