  • Fixed an issue where when Tantegel and Garinham were connected by the swamp cave, they would end up on the same continent, creating a map that was not able to be completed.

Assets 4
  • Fixed an error in the player stat generation
    • A bug was causing player stats to be higher than intended
  • Added a slight HP boost to lower levels in Big Swamp Mode
  • Changes to (attempt to) ensure that at least one enemy in early zones is beatable
    at level 1. The lowest strength enemy will have no more than 5HP
  • Changed the run chance calculations in chaos mode
    • Running chance in chaos mode is now based on map index rather than enemy index, since enemy index is fairly meainingless in this mode. Charlock will be the hardest place to run, followed by other dungeons, followed by Hauksness and Charlock (top floor), and easiest in the overworld. This should help with progression to level 2 as well.
  • Fixed a problem with bridge placement
    • Bridges shouldn't be placed where walkable tiles are located to the north or south of them
  • Fixed a problem where Rimuldar could be placed on the wrong continent if the swamp cave was located in Garinham
  • Fixed a UI crash in the title screen generation
  • Made the random seeds in the UI more random
    • The random seeds in the UI were not so random on Windows.
    • Changed the UI such that a new random seed is chosen after generating a ROM.

  • Big Swamp option - most of the overworld will be filled with swamp.
  • Added player sprite options. The player sprite can be changed when generating a ROM.
  • Fixed an issue where the player could obtain multiple flutes/tokens if they were in a chest.

  • Fixed an issue where Garin's Grave and Tantegel Basement weren't randomized
  • Moved "speed hacks" option to a top level question.

Assets 3
  • A new option --speed-hacks (-H) has been added to speed up text and some other aspects of the game.
  • Tantegel Castle is no longer confined to its original zone from the vanilla game. Zone 0 will be moved to accomodate.
  • A few incorrect monster stats have been fixed:
    • Droll HP has been reduced from 43 to 35 (this is what the GBC/SNES release has it as)
    • Werewolves will now give 95 XP and 155G instead of 120/185. This also matches values from the GBC/SNES release.
  • Gold drops will now always be the maximum amount instead of a random percentage. This is also in line with the re-releases.
  • Fixed a bug where Charlock castle could be obstructed, thus making the game impossible to finish.
  • Fixed a bug where the program would occasionally get stuck when generating the map.
