  • Short Rejuvenation Update! Q/A Style!


    It's been a while since my last post, so I decided that I'd give a little update and talk about a few things! In the format of a Q/A!

     

    What's going on with Rejuvenation right now? It's been almost 2 years!!

     

       - We are currently doing internal testing as of right now! There's still one segment of the game that needs a bit of work from me,

    but after so long, v13's main story and early-mid game are being tested and things are going smoothly!! Lots of things to patch up,

    but smoothly nonetheless! We may... actually release something soon(tm)??? Soon.

     

    Will there be Game-z support? 

     

       -Yes! Thanks to @andracass (Who is a new member on the team, btw!), Rejuvenation will have official MK support. Which means

    less lag and better performance! We will still be supporting the regular game.exe, though. Just in case your PC won't be able to

    handle the power that is MK. Unfortunate for you, though. 

     

    Okay, well there's Game-z support. Cool. But what about my MAC? She's dying without content!

     

       - I am happy to say that there will be a MAC version on release. No more stupid Wine emulators 😡.

    Also it'll run at incredible speeds! No lag! Zoom! Fast! Keep going! Oops we crashed.

    Except it shouldn't crash. Anyway.

    What Crests were chosen from the suggestion thread? My Giratina Crest that gave an omni boost was so good...

     

       -I've gotten this question quite a bit and that will remain Top Secret. However, like I said in the thread, if your crest suggestion wasn't implemented, that doesn't mean it wont be.

    Adding in hundreds of crests in one release is overwhelming for the devs and the player. We'll be trickling in new crests with each new version. So please be patient :).

     

    Will my old save files work with the new update? Pls help.

     

       -Yes, however there have been a substantial amount of changes/tweaks to the world itself. Some places will not be safe to load up in! I will make a list beforehand. A whole entire post dedicated to this. If I see "LOADED UP IN XXXXX AND GAME CRASH PLS HELP" I will come to your house and delete your save and quite possibly your entire life. Don't say I won't.

     

    Can I join the Beta Test? Please...?

     

       -Unfortunately, no. We no longer have public beta testing periods anymore. Due to problems with leaks and such in the past, all Betas from here on out will be entirely closed.

     

     

     

     

     

    Soon.

    Forgive my stupidity, but what is Game-z?

    It's a version of the game that uses the MKXP engine rather than the RMXP engine. It runs much, much faster and works a lot better on newer pc's.

    The hype is real now. V13 is finished when it is finished and I hope the Rejuv team  don't get any pressure to work on the game when you don't have the time or motivation.
     

    I have one question: What gamemaking program are you using to create pokemon Rejuv? Is RPG maker XP or something else?

    Soon, my plan for having two runs going on at once shall be granted exclusive rights to begin! That'll be a fun (albeit potentially tedious) time, methinks~

     

    I think I'm gonna have to settle with Ye Olde Lag for a bit though, considering how badly Ame and Cass freaked out upon seeing my specs back when the Starlight Divide demo first came out... 😅

    We're using RPG Maker XP for the game, as Pokémon Essentials was made for that particular engine as well!

    So everything is coming along nicely, but QQ what does the (tm) in that "soon(tm)" mean? I have a theory but I gotta be sure

     

    Don't read into it too deep LOL, it's just a running gag that's been happening a lot this dev cycle since we can't promise any release windows. We made that mistake a couple of times before and then ended up not being able to meet that expectation due to a lot of stuff suddenly coming up.

    To be fair last time they said "soon(tm)" was a little under 4 months ago (unless someone can find a more recent post): 
     https://www.rebornevo.com/rejuvdev/records/mega-medium-sized-post™️-v13-updatecontent-showcase-r24/?ct=1617642324

    Granted four months doesn't fall under the definition of "soon" for some people I'd imagine, but as mentioned by Zumi It's more of a running gag at this point.

    I get it though, honestly I'm personally guilty of coming to kind of hate the word whenever I see it in a dev update post ;-P

    Will there be any difficulty transferring save data from the current engine to game-z or will it just do it automatically? 

     

     

    Savefiles are shared across both versions of the game!

    I would probably save at Grand Dream City residential area since that’s where V12 ended just in case. I would also have to prepare grinding up some of my Pokémon despite playing casual mode while I wait. Not sure what surprises await, but I’ll find out eventually when it’s out.

    So how to decide between using the MKXP version or the regular RMXP version? Which one is better?

    As has been said before, MKXP will make your game run faster and is therefore the better option (assuming your pc can handle it)

    Does this require 2 separate downloads ? I have no clue about this software

    no, it has both.

    so game-z works on most, but not all computers. that's why the original exe is left in the file. you want to use game-z if you can.

    Never got the game-z to work properly. Not sure if my PC with components from 2019 is already too old...

    No one knows when v13 will be out.  As someone mentioned before even if the total completion on the site says 97% they most likely still need to do closed testing after it reaches 100%.
    I'd be hesitant to predict any sort of release date at this point.  I made that mistake previously based on a timeframe Jan gave us saying a Spring/Summer release date would be too long of a wait, yet we are coming up on the middle of May currently with no concrete date.
    A lot of delays occurred from unexpected factors of course, so right now the politically correct answer is:
    "It'll be out when it's ready."

    there are multiple phases of testing so that more severe bugs get caught early and don't have to be suffered through by subsequent phases

    idk if the question got answered, but what is the matter with dynamax? Is it coming to the game? If so you in every battle? And a additional question what about raids? Or are these features of gen 8 too "bad" or "broken" in some sort?

    btw loving the game, cant wait for ep 13

    Don't quote me on this, but i think i remember seeing in the development blog that dynamax is instead being replaced with mega-evolution of the pokemon that get dynamax forms. e.g toxtricity, duraludon, etc.

     

    I think it might be for the best considering dynamax would confuse the game, especially since it renders z-crystals useless. Furthermore, the code needed to do it would be incredibly complicated and more or less useless considering it's really not needed. It might not be confirmed, but i'm pretty sure i saw a post talking about it.

     

    And yeah, i'm also hyped for V13 too :)

    Didn't look for the tumblr post made by Jan, but I did find confirmation from Zumi:

    No dynamax, but it's true that Gmax mons are being implemented as custom megas -- Jan confirmed this a while back on his tumblr. We're still working out the details for them, but we'll do our utmost to make them similarly balanced like the canon megas!

    Please... You guys could not even read this post, but if you do, just know that im really greatfull for you guys. Really... Pokemon Reborn and Rejuvenation are Such majestic pieces of work, rejuvenation is my favorite fangame, and i believe its even better then the original games! No matter what, please continue and finish this piece of art, i would 100% be sad if those fangames ended up been discarted, i really Need to play the full games. In resume, just know im really greatfull for everything this game can offer, and im happy i am able to play it. Please, never give up!

    Hi, so this is my first post, like, ever and I want to make good use of it to thank Jan and the development team for this fantastic game! It is really hard to exaggerate how good it is. Thank you all! :-) Excited for what's to come!

     

    P.S.: Also, yes, this is me looking at those goddamned bars on a daily basis!!!!

    Hohoho, I don't know for how long I've been checking this site every 12 hours by now. And I'm not even that veteran here, other people have been waiting v13 for even longer than I have.

     

    But the wait will be worth every second. I know it, you know it, Jan and the team know it. This will be my biggest and longest pokemon playthrough since Reborn v18 and it's gonna be glorious.

    Well I've known the game for a long time, I just haven't been active around here is all. I am personally so hyped about the new story and content. Damn, they even implemented some changes to the world itself. Hope they gave Flareon that fucking crest already lol

    Unfortunately this isn't really feasible on our end. Logistically speaking it's a much bigger hassle to deal with 100 people reporting the same common bugs over and over again, which is why internal & alpha testing take place before public release so we can catch the most common ones early by only a handful of people, and won't have to worry about having these same common issues in public release, making it possible to sift through more different uncommon bugs people find in the public release faster. That way we can keep things easier for us to manage as well!

     

    New story is meant in the sense of that a new chapter of the game is being added, so the story continues from where it ended in V12.

     

    There are also a ton of revisions coming with V13 to older content in order to improve story flow and/or fleshing/balancing things out better where the game was lackluster at first -- partially based on feedback we've received over the course of time, but also simply because we ourselves realized that some stuff needed improvement.

     

     

    And trust me guys, we're aware of how excited you all are for the release of V13. Hell, we all on the dev team are super stoked for people to finally play the game again after two years! But we really do need to get through the last few layers of testing to make sure the game doesn't break at every turn or at crucial moments, so bear with us a little longer please! 🙏

    Sorry, didn't mean to imply that you schould release a buggy version. I meant that IF i had a buggy version i would still play because i am just that excited for it. Don't worry about time. I'd bet even if it took another year people would still be waiting. Its a great game with a great story (way better than the official ones in my opinion) so it's worth waiting longer for the devs to feel ready to release it.
