    Haunted House Story - aka HHs - my completely new mod.
    Current version: 0.6

    Redgon Hash, an adventurer, comes to the Haunted House. He doesn't know there are no exit - he must defeat the evil creatures from the house. He must survive - or die.

    I've changed nearly all stuff from Cave Story - enemies, weapons, music, sounds, tilesets , NPC sets.

    Hope you like my mod.

    Can we make a rule that says you aren't allowed to just post to say that you are going to / are in the process of downloading a mod

    Because I see shit like this all the time and 1) it's dumb and spammy and 2) the modder receives no usable feedback from it. If you're going to download it, fine, great, that's cool. Wait until you actually have something useful to say before you post because 70% to 100% of the time people who do this don't even follow up and that pisses me off even more GRRRR :muscledoc: :sun: :sun:

    Back from DC, let's check out the 'ol Cave Story Forums.

    Yeah not much has changed.
    I'll check out your mod and tell you what I think, Mixer.
    (I probably won't have time to tell you what I think, or even play your mod, but it's nice to leave people knowing that they may or may not receive feedback from the BMOF. (That means Big Man On the Forums, in case you didn't know.))

    -Remember that Cave Storys transparent backround color is black. This makes some of your sprites (like your MyChar) look somewhat blank. Recolor those parts dark blue.
    -There are an awful lot of enemys with not a lot of hp. But this could just be me sucking.
    -I liked how you used the blade mod :D
    I like it so far. Keep up the good work!

    And by #00001 he means a color so blue that it looks black.
    There are two easy ways to do this.
    1)go to the color sliders and put them all at 0 except for blue, put 1 as blue's value, and if that's too hard,
    2) eyedrop the color from Quote's hair in the original .pbm.

    That was quick :eek: I like the weapons, especially the way the G-Gun ammo works. Wouldn't say it's really 'scary' as such, although the noise those headcrab skulls make when shot is pretty unsettling. The dark palette is more effective at making it hard to see things >_> My most notable criticisms are that the outside area is a bit long and plain, and the Bot boss fight becomes very uninteresting after reaching it. Otherwise, I like the hacking work; you've made good progress in a short time :orangebell:

    Any bugs? Glitches?
    I must fix them before I start working on second demo.
    EDIT: And please give me ratings.

    As far as I could tell, there were no errors in the TSC that could cause problems.

    My suggestion is to add skipflags and

    Hey, I downloaded the mod a while ago, but I just played it. I just wanted to say, hey, this mod actually isn't too bad after all. I honestly didn't expect much from a mod with this name, but it actually is pretty fun. Here's what I like about it:

    -It's challenging, but not too much, I feel it's pretty balanced, maybe that's just me.
    -It's very creative, I didn't notice a single thing that wasn't changed, graphical and sound-wise.
    -The Cooler music is really good.
    -I like the strategy involved in using the shuriken, it's fun, and it makes the weapon not overpowered as a result.
    -While the game isn't scary, the first time I hit one of those skull sprinter things, the sound kind of startled me, so a plus there I think.
    -All the hacks you did were pretty great, even if they were pretty basic.
    -I like the new sounds, they sound retro and unique.
    -Good length for a first demo.

    Here are some flaws, however.

    -Some of the graphics are okay, but a lot of it is either too dark and hard to see, or just kind of, well, bad. I think it's that some things need rounded edges, like those big ghosts in the ending, and the facepics
    -The music is kind of off-key, and it's kind of hard to listen to, some songs are good, but a lot of it is repetitive and kind of bad. Maybe you were going for music that didn't sound in-key, in that case, that's a plus; I do still like that Cooler song.
    -Was there a point of the key in the first part?
    -I didn't notice I had the shuriken, maybe I wasn't paying attention, but you should probably introduce the weapon before popping it in your inventory.
    -There are too many monsters in the beginning.

    That's it, really, it's much better than I expected, so good job, I look forward to the next release!

    8 out of 10.

    At start there's a text...
    You landed in this dark room, carrying only a sword and 10 shurikens.

    It seems that hate9 is living up his name.
    I'm not a very good reviewer, but I guess it's decent.

    The door should not open until you get the key.
    I forgot to try this, but I think it's necessary to have the key.

    Ah, yes that's definitely functioning. I actually found another thing. When you get the key, the sparkle doesn't disappear, there's not really any point in keeping it there, so you might want to make it go away after getting the key.
