Here's another GIF of the before and after of a simple dungeon graphics upgrade. Much cleaner and more modern looking I think.

Work still going strong. Lots more graphic overhauls complete and the lock pick and pickpocket engine improved.

Finally re made the player char animations which is now possible with the much larger maximum byte size of robots. I remember when I first released the game well over a decade ago the limited robot size was a real issue for me. And either loading robots from txt file wasnít yet available or I hadnít learnt how to use it!

So now each of the races has their own individual animation which varies between three types (normal, robed, armoured) depending on your apparel.

So that 12 animations for the main 4 races. Previously I could only fit two total animations!

The new character generation screen is now fully working, graphically much more pleasing than the old blue mess. Also with mouse support. Character generation overall has had a decent overhaul with a new class system allowing more interesting starting options for your character and the option to name them. In line with this is a new saving system with slots for multiple characters (showing details of the game) and the ability to load mid-game.

I've also finished off a lot of the new inventory, again with mouse support and more informative menus. One major update is a proper quest tracker so you can see what you need to do for each guild and quest line.

A couple of areas are also being updated and extended as I go through them, some quests which were very basic will now be more fleshed out. There's also a few more evil path lines than before.


Ohh man, can't wait to play this - loved the original one and the revamp looks awesome!

The new character creation screen is so much more polished too. How do the skill/ability points work, are the black dots aligned with the text descriptions (good int, inferior dex etc)?

I dont think i am likely to ever fully finsish this game, but i have realised the current version i have is much more advanced than the one in the downloads.

Is it worth me uploading the current version? would anyone be interested to play it?

@Galladin so if i remember correctly the skills are on a 1-100 scale, the dots just represent them in 10 block increments for visual ease

Absolutely, plenty of us on the #mzx Discord channel (you should join) and DrDos has been streaming MZX games on Twitch lately - this should have been on the playlist. Do it buddy! :)

Well that was a faster reply than I expected! I will get it done tomorrow hopefully, ive realised i can play through the browser on my work laptop so that was my initial incentive.

Looking over my Trello there is a lot going on and a lot of changes, i shouldve uploaded it years ago.

So i really should've updated it years ago... all the work from the 2021 post above has been lost. basically everything that was green in the Trello board.

After an initial mourning period and some mild sulking, mostly about the time lost more than anything, i am using this as an opportunity to improve what i had done.

I have begun redoing everything. Starting with quick wins to gain momentum, primarily the graphical improvements, character generation and inventory update and some minor things which were all ripped directly from the Ancient Legends project and some other test engines i didn't lose.

At that point i will release it as LoR Remaster/Enhanced Edition 1.1 and begin working on the rest of the planned updates and improvements. I would really like at the very least to have the questlines and the ending i have planned done if nothing else.

I'm always interested in a new MZX game.
