Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch V5B - RELEASED!
« on: May 22, 2017, 11:16:59 AM »


V5B is finally here! Additional versions usually mean some map changes, maybe some minor tweaks here and there. But during the downtime of waiting for Zandronum 3.0 (which we are still waiting for...) I decided to go back and revamp the singleplayer bosses and story. This was something I originally had no intention of doing, but Ivory convinced me that people care about the singleplayer experience and the earlier content does not reflect the quality of the newest content. In a way it was like playing through time, you could see how the team and I got better with each new version of the game. But as cute as that is, it pains me to see new players fighting bosses like the Guts Dozer and Met Daddy so it had to be done. It took many months out of my life to rework everything but it's something I alone had to do. Hopefully it has been worth it!

The engine has also updated to Zandronum 3.0 beta (see here for more details on that). This gives modders quite a few new tools to play with. I won't list them here as many of you already know what they are and have been patiently waiting for a chance to use them.

But enough talk, it's been too long! Scroll down below and grab the download link!

Trailer

    * Don't forget CTF! Now we have 25 CTF maps!
    * Many, many, MANY map/weapon/skin tweaks and adjustments! Too much to list! You'll have to discover most of the new changes!

Notes

Special thanks to the MM8BDM team who helped out in this version. This build was mostly handled by myself due to all the singleplayer stuff, but it could not have been completed without the artists, musicians, coders and testers who took time out of their day to help me keep this passion project updated. Thanks must also go out to the many community contributions we received (mainly in the art department). Your names will appear in the credits (and your medals are in the cutstuff post)!

I hope you have a blast playing the new stuff. Watching and hearing about people enjoying this monster of a Mega Man fangame is what keeps me going. MM8BDM V5C, if it is required, will not be a massive content package like this one and will just fix any remaining bugs. After that, I will back down for a while and allow the dev team to start working on V6. We may even have some new positions opening up in the future so stay tuned!

You can either copy the new content into your old MM8BDM folder, or copy your old zandronum-(name).ini file into a new V5B folder.

The hype is real!
So many improvements everywhere that it's hard for me to describe everything that caught me in detail.
(Really love MM4DW1's water on the window glass effect though!)
