I can help you a bit about Maps and check Events. Hahaha, I'm still following your topic, so keep up the work!
Thank you so much. Until now, I had never received any news from my Eventer. Maybe when my mapper is done editing with my map, I'll send you the new copy of the project.Thanks for your support!

uhh,.....yeah the map really need to improve
very bland and masive without purpose.
upon entering castle i only find book shelf and nothing else...i find this very odd and yet intrigue to why that is cuz some ppl just put random/lots of things inside a castle.
i get lost in the sense of direction cuz it didnt exactly tell me, i just walk around until i find the right direction.
the villager/npc looked like a walking zombie need some activity or something...
i think u should change the background pict of shop/etc and not the original pict that came with it so it would look like ur playing someone elses game.
stoy....i dunno i dont follow it sorry im not that good at following story, but it seems the flow of story is a bit rushed.
maybe use some program like (audio cleaning) to decrease audio size so its not massively large (140+mb)
if ur not using all audio/pict dont put them all up, might be a good time to organize (i dunno about this but did u really use all that?)
was really looking forward to play a good game when i look at the title screen, but if ur new to it than i guess its fine for starter
btw who made the title screen? its not that bright (although it might need a bit for ambience) but i like it most ppl just use photoshop to brighten it (too much even), title screen and bgm are the only positive i see.
Thanks for your comment! I'll certainly take your remarks as points for improvements.
Firstly, about the Ehira Castle. Because this is my first game, my mappings and eventings isn't that good at the part
I have been planning for a big reconstruction for Ehira, since it is an important city for epic events happening later in the story
I've told my mapper to reorganise the Ehira Junction, and after receiving the new areas I'll get back to the castle....as well as redoing all the instructions for easy purposes. I believe the part where you are facing problems is where you are going to Regias' Mansion and when you are going for the Ehira Forest, yes?
Secondly, thanks for pointing out the NPC problem. If any chance I'll make them move more freely.
Thirdly, about the background. It has always been my problem; using default sources. But I promise, this would only be temporarily. But I would be needing an artist, since I totally have no idea of creating such things or recolouring sources, except for removing white backgrounds.
Thank you for reminding me of this!
Fourthly, as for the story, there has been previous experts pointing out the flow of the story being too quick. I understand the need of changing the dialogues so that everything will be slower and easier to understand, and I'll get back to that during my renovation of the project. Thank you!
Oh yes, the audio problem. Thank you for recommanding audio cleanising, although it's the first time I've seen it
. Pardon for my lack of experience. I do use most of the audios inside, but some of them I downloaded them in advance so as to save trouble from searching and downloading them in future.
Once again, thanks for your comment! I appreciate your valuable critiques and will be seeking to improve my game further...Well I think only to be seen after I published my revamped, expanded demo
It is a big project, and I am looking for helplines to see flaws that I can't see
Maybe after that, yeap.
Oh yes, as for the title screen, it's all credited to Shocky.
