    Episode 16 is now officially out for everyone to download!

     

    There are a few things to be aware of, as mentioned on the download page...

    Quote

    Attention: 
    :redx: - Before updating to E16, please make sure that you are NOT using menu frames 27 or 28. Switch to a different frame number and save before loading in E16!

    :xmark: - Back up save files will now be kept according to the set Options, but existing save files are set to 0 by default. Please check your Options and enable backups!

    :check: -  In order to begin the episode, you will need to return to the Circus Data Room (where Ciel is), and then leave the room again.

     

    Also, as of the public release we have implemented a name filter for the new online system! If your name is deemed inappropriate you will be asked to change it-- but it is possible that some innocent names might be caught up in it. If that happens, please tell us about it in the Online Errors forum!


    That said, here is the episode's change-list, with Field-specific changes being in the Readme:

    Spoiler

     

    • Attack animations are in the progress of being redone. Current progress: ~60%
    • A Text-Skip feature has been implemented. Hold X to skip past text. 
    • An internal master volume control has been added to the options menu 
    • A PULSE profile app has been added to the Pokegear. It will be enabled on existing playthroughs by beginning E16 content. Items on the overworld can be collected to install content to it.
    • A Field Effect viewer app has been added to the Pokegear. It will be enabled on existing playthroughs by beginning E16 content. Items on the overworld can be collected to install content to it.
    • An option to control how many back-ups are saved at once has been added to the options menu. This will only affect save files created in E16, so any E15 back ups will need to be deleted manually if desired.
    • Gym Leaders will now always save their Ace Pokemon for last.
    • Hyperspace Fury added.
    • Fairy type added to Pokedex search
    • Many moves, items and abilities have been debugged

    • All Mega shinies have been customized, completing the shiny sprite project. 
    • All Menu/Speech frames have customized
    • All PC Boxes have been customized
    • A new item has been implemented. The Amplifield Rock increases the duration of "Room" moves, Gravity, and user-created Field Effects.
    • Tweaked AI decision-making
    • The weather system has been redone to be faster, more stable, and vary based on in-game region. It now operates on a 5 day cycle and does not depend on the Opal Ward.
    • Added relationship variables, altered throughout the game.
    • Re-battleable trainers now appear before the first badge instead of after the third gym.
    • Removed the choosing-different-move disobedience effect, previously glitched and no longer in main series.
    • Strong Winds no longer incorrectly prevents weather changes on its own
    • Undiscovered Egg Group Pokemon now always have 3 perfect IVs
    • Double Battles now always launch as doubles regardless of if the player has only one Pokemon
    • Money Gain/Loss tweaked
    • Duplicated Pokemon (including natural Shedinja) no longer share moves with their originals
    • Items can now be used on Pokemon from the party screen
    • Critical Capture mechanic added
    • Full screen option added
    • Eggs in daycare should no longer inherit parents' current moves in favor of the moves they entered daycare with
    • Key items are no longer depositable. Item PC re-enabled.
    • Remaining Pokemon now display between knockouts when fighting a trainer.
    • A 3x speed Fast-forward mode has been added. Press Alt to toggle it on and off. 
    • Online functions have been added to the game. Access them from the Pokegear.
      • Trading
      • Wondertrade
      • Random Matched and Friend Battles
      • All Field Effects supported
      • Please remember to NOT click outside of the window while the "Waiting..." message is displayed, otherwise the games can become stuck. 

     

     

     

    As for your download links, please find them from this page!

     

    Thank you all for being patient, and enjoy!

      Have you fixed the weather problem?

      its not exactly a weather problem its a new system.

       

      Ame said when i asked:

       

      there is!
      the first thing to know is that it is kind of a little bit busted as of the community release, but has, we dearly hope, been fixed for public
      it works on a 5 day cycle updating every 8 hours (instead of a 7 day cycle updating every day)

      Her name is Aya and it's cause she doesn't care about the rules.

      Yes, it is, assuming you update! You will always need to be on the latest version to play online!

      We had to take it down to update and to fix a small issue with speed ties  but it should be all set by now.

       

      (ps: dig the name. nico robin was the best character in that show. ^^)

      Wonderful! Thank you! I restarted for the community release and I just finished Julia. I'll switch over to this public release and I will have so much fun!

      Things I look forward for E17:

      - All the move animations! I want earthquake and surf!

      - Desert area == Gible? Want want want

      - Hunting for new bugs! Scizor? Yes. Words like "exhiliarting"? Definitely!

      - All those tiny teasers and updates that make me appreciate the vast amount of work the development team gets done.

      - To be surprised, entertained, and shocked... or pummeled.

       

      Just wondering why you put ~50 hours of playtime? Is that nominal? To me, it takes more like 100 hours from start to finish.

      Welcome to the forum Knightwalker :) 

      Just make sure you first save in the same room as Ciel (the last gym leader in Ep. 15)

      This should be the room inside the circus tent.

      You can close the game after saving in there.

      Then download the latest version of Reborn (Ep16 Community RElease)

      and simply play :) 

       

      Hope that helps :D

      Ame, what the relationship point does ? Is it the similar to certain games like Persona series or there are some pokemons and items that can only be acquired by achieving certain level of relationship ? Or its just dating sim ...

      I try to pick a fairly average number, and many players won't thoroughly grind or explore, especially when not between episodes.

      They're just there for later. Don't expect too much of them.

      Yes, please do! There are multiple bug fixes for many a thing. Also you need the latest version to play online.

      Is the soundtrack still compressed in this release? If so, do you ever plan in listing an alternative non compressed download? 

       

      Thanks for everything!

      I'm 99% sure the public release has uncompressed music.

      For the sake of all who already played E16 during the community release, does anyone got one of those memory erasers from MIB? :D

       

      Great work, thank you very much

      Thank you Ame and the team for the great work!

       

      Just a quick question, if I update my game from the community release to the public one, will my current relationship variables be reset or is everything going to be kept?

      Trying to stay best buddies with Cain and Cal

      Yay! finally :D 

      Any online issues fixed?  Like the lvl 100 bug, the crashes, and the fact that you disconnect if you Alt + Tab on something else during waiting or battling ?

      The plot was so good when I played this although the new soundtracks surprised me. I want to know why some of the soundtracks like Team Meteor Admin's track are changed. I loved the previous ones
