Download here: Lords of the Crown

Earlier version:
Lords of the Crown is a Cave Story mod that makes a parody of Lord of the Rings by using characters and scenery existing in the game and arranges its assets and alters the dialogue and storyline in a way that makes it resemble Lord of the Rings in many ways. In this mod, each Cave Story character represents a LOTR character. The mod is entirely cutscene-based. In other words, there is no gameplay in this mod. It's just all one big long cutscene. Also, since this mod is from a third-person point of view, I decided to have Quote's lines shown. This mod features experiments with many new cinematic tricks that will no doubt be used in CBSR. Here are some screenshots you may view before playing:
This is actually almost all I've been working on this past month-and-a-half. For those of you who've been keeping up with my profile, I haven't been making any Cave Story+ porting tool of any sort. All those pictures and progress reports I posted were fake. I'm surprised you guys fell for it.

Well, try out the mod, and tell me what you think!

It crashes for me at the end of the intro, or as soon as you press a key to get to the title screen.

This reminds me of Toroko Story. It crashes right at the start.
EDIT: Oh, I actually got it to work! I ran it in compatibility mode

replace the .exe with a fresh one.

then you can play it.


This doesn't change my opinion on the mod though.

I'm experiencing the same problem as everyone else.

Perhaps the MediaFire upload had corrupted it? (extremely rare, but who knows, it could happen.)

Was this supposed too be a joke? All that happens is King keeps on repeating "Giev her a moment for pity's sake!" I hope I didn't break the game...

Considering the number of joke mods that have been popping up recently, I'd say it's pretty hard to trust anyone who's throwing out one of their so-called "great" mods. (I'm not upset, but I have to admit I'm becoming a little resistant to trying out mods now. I suppose no one takes modding seriously, not that it matters or anything.)

Those guys perhaps... Don't get me wrong; joke mods can be funny every now and then, but I find having too many popping up nearly at once to be an irritance. I'll still play them, just to see what sorts of jokes are pulled off, maybe. It is probably a trend that I'll adjust to.

Okay this is really embarrassing. I am so sorry for that. I've fixed the crashing after intro glitch. Here's the new patched version:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/8lyrs33xlcddrpd/Lords%2520of%2520the%2520Crown%2520v1.0.1.0.zip

I just tried this and it worked for me. Hope things can go smoothly now. I'll now update the OP with this new link.
the game crashes when you hit "New"

(or load for that matter)


And ha ha "Giev her a moment for pity's sake!"



And your now pulling our legs with all these fake releases having the game crash a predetermined points leaving us in anxiety.

Now I haven't 'played' this mod, but I think the third picture (the one with Booster) is a mock-up, a photoshop if you will.
Unless you combined a <ANP that makes Sue move with a <WAI0008 (half of a block), then there is no way an entity can be between two spaces - It's simply not possible.
Besides, all of those screenshots could simply be fakes. The second one looks like it was taken from when you return from Grasstown and are going to Sand Zone, with just King moved forwards.
Also, Quote's facepic doesn't use grey for the shading, it uses light blue like Curly's. The only instance of a grey/discoloured colouring to happen is when you copy from a direct .pbm, and that's the least that can happen. (It also happens when a .pbm isn't saved right.)

So with all of that evidence...

Yep.

Thank you for proving yourself wrong, it makes my job easier

So you mean something that would be remarkably easy to pull off in a mod
Also, Quote's facepic doesn't use grey for the shading, it uses light blue like Curly's. The only instance of a grey/discoloured colouring to happen is when you copy from a direct .pbm, and that's the least that can happen. (It also happens when a .pbm isn't saved right.)
Going to assume you noticed the problem with this, hence the strikethrough
So with all of that evidence...
All none of it?
Nope.
