I understand the complaints of the shields. every weapon should be able to damage the opponent 1 on 1.

I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't comment any further on this forum unless someone brought up the very issues that I had complained about repeatedly.  As a note on the below, I'm NOT saying that changes weren't warranted on the weapons.  What I AM saying is that the changes for the most part were so piss poorly thought out that it's just inexcusable.

There's so much more I could comment upon, but I'm done.
Messatsu out.

Edit: I've modified this post to tone down the vitriol as that was not my intention.

If Messatsu (or anyone really) wants to see my response to specific points, just check out the spoiler.
(click to show/hide)
I don't believe in picking one mode and sticking with it. That undersells the developers that work their hardest to make a game that everyone can enjoy, and of course it's not fair to the players themselves, who enjoy a variety of game modes. Just because it's harder doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. And I think, just as a first example, v5 has been enjoyed in a huge variety of ways so far.

Also, faith in the future of the game should not be decided by the ideology of changes nor by the mode those changes seem to be made for nor by scrutinizing a design philosophy that may not be consistent with your own. Faith in the future of the game should be placed in the individuals that are making maps, art, weapons, new gameplay experiences, and events, and in the playerbase that enjoys these things and keeps the community alive. If you truly have no faith in the future of MM8BDM, then you're telling every modder, developer, and player that you don't believe in their work and in their enjoyment.

Personally, looking at all the hard work that's already been put in and enjoyed and that will continue to be put in and enjoyed, I'm very optimistic about the future of the game.

P.S.: I don't want to bloat this thread up with emotionally charged discussion so if anyone feels the need to maintain the level of... passion(?) of Mess's post please at least start it somewhere else. Criticism is fine in here but emotional escalation belongs elsewhere.

So, we're in December now, and the 17th is the 29th anniversary of the first Mega Man game's release in Japan. Do you have anything special to announce or show for MM8BDM by then?

Probably not. We're still a little ways away from being able to show the goods. We really need the new version of Zandronum to come out first!

Should probably change the topic title to "Waiting for Zandronum 3.0 release". Though v5b is probably still being worked on, so this is not a situation of "it's complete, we're waiting for Zand 3.0 and then we inmediately release".

I don't really have any good way to get in contact with the devteam, but I suppose this topic will do--since the objective of v5b is a story overhaul, I figured someone ought to point out the plot hole that v5a introduced*, one I feel could have easily gone unnoticed by the higher-ups.

Well the super adapter tech and all the other crazy weapons are available on the field of battle in the tournament, ready for the taking. Also Bass will no longer be appearing as a bot in the Robot Master Tournament arc.

Here is the new intro for the game!



This will be replacing the Mega Man 2 introduction sequence where the camera spins around the building.

As for V5B progress, we're getting there. We still don't have Zandronum 3.0 yet but a new beta was released so hopefully this means development is almost over on their end.

Note: This is not the V5B trailer. That will come later and will highlight the story update.  :)

Very good! I especially like the robot master flashing up from each chapter. I noticed that each third robot master flashing up segued into some game play from their respective map, except for Pluto. Will game play for his map be inserted once the MMV chapter is released?

Terra, come on! My second favorite game from the series after the Wily Tower's secret game. I read you're waiting for the Zandronum to update 3.0, I'm doing the same. That will be the moment when I doesn't have to keep two separate copies of the game for the mods that uses 3.0. I'm looking forward for this. :)

I noticed you used 8-bit versions of Geno's fanmade MM&B database images for Galaxy Man and Solar Man:
