(Version 1.62)​
"The Flashy Banner and Download image caught my attention. What is this?"
RaveStory was conceived one night as a joke. People were making "X-story" puns as jokes in the skype group, and someone said "RaveStory". I then said something like "I should make a mod of that", and here we are.

"Why should I play your shitty mod?"
I dunno. It is pretty shitty, after all; you said it yourself. But maybe you should play it anyway. I have a (self-proclaimed, likely not-true) history of "upping the ante", or striving to make my next mod better then the last. Is this better than my last mod? You decide. No, really, you decide. I have no idea.

"I found a shitty bug that ruined a thing for me/an area is too hard for me."
Post about it in the thread you fool! I'll update the mod as long as necessary in order to make sure it's playable and fun.

Word of warning:
This mod contains references to other mods, skype group jokes, or characters made BY other people, both in the skype group and on the forum. They shouldn't detract from the experience, but I'm just saying it up front.

SPECIAL THANKS TO:
  • NoNameForEvil for his Orgmaker and Tileset contributions, aswell as finding grammatical errors.
  • Tpcool for his Orgmaker contributions, aswell as bugtesting and helping me find important gameplay errors.
  • Zenix for his Orgmaker contribution.
  • Dunc for giving me important musical tips and editing a song or two in a way that vastly improves the mod.
EXTRA THANKS FOR:
  • Spirit for...well, he sorta asked to be in the mod. Not going to thank him for that.
  • JonSpider, for being a cool dude.
  • Kayya, for being a cool gal. Also designed the custom Org Viewer and did the art.
  • Nameless, for RAVESTORY HYPE.
  • And everyone in the skype group for supporting me and for RAVESTORY HYPE.
  • And everyone on the forum!
Now I just have to hope that I didn't forget something incredibly important. We'll see soon enough.

Nice mod!

Also, is it a coincidence that I posted a very unhealthy recipe for a Curly Brace cocktail in another thread?

(In the mod, you can give curly brace a cocktail with her name on it, and it knocks her out)

Not a coincidence. It's a direct reference actually.

So far I'm really enjoying this mod. I like how well-made the levels are, I do see the rainbow cloud area a bit of a mess, but that does make it more challenging. It was nice to see Spirit in this mod, will he be backarie? Right now where I'm at, it is a bit difficult in the second part of facing the final boss because of the randomized falling blocks Pixel put in. Overall, I am loving this mod, and kudos to you for your hard work and dedication you have put in Rave Story.

So I just finished it right now and good god. That just makes me wanna have more from that mod.

Edit: Wait a minute... Wow. You're truly amazing at this.

So uh, when's Rave Story 2 coming out?

So, I just finished it, and I really don't know what to say.
*After 1000 years of thinking on what to type...*
There are a couple things you could do differently --
- Explain what happened to the others, they just kinda vanished,
- 1 more weapon? Please? :3
- Maybe 1 more area, and the inclusion of the Booster 2.0, maybe the other characters are here,
and when you finally "find" them, they all vanish in front of you and you get sent to the Rave Fortress then?
Just and idea! :D

Some things I liked --
- Debug cat's character: really kinda made me think. Like, will these forums simply die someday? Are these mods
as endless and full of potential as we think they currently are? How long will they last?
- The weapons, Martini and the lyrics. Really cool,
- Story,
- Music,
- etc.
Everything, tbh.

I've officially nerfed the fuck out of everything.

This was a rushed patch so if it's TOO easy, tell me. But the amount of complaints I was getting about the difficulty (not just here, skype group specifically) was getting to the point where I really had no choice.

Tell me if it's too easy or too hard or whatever.

Well, overall the mod itself was pretty good. Quite amusing at times, too.
Gonna leave a list of things that could be changed/improved in the spoiler below:
1. If possible, Curly's dialogue should change once you get the Martini so that she sees that you now have a drink, but it's not good enough (unlike the Curly Brace, which you give).
2. Before I activated the Spirit boss fight, I decided to look around for any hidden goodies, and I ended up finding an invisible life capsule between two of the binary shelf things. (and according to what you said in Skype, it should be obtained after the fight, which is when it appears).
3.

Kinda sucks that this can't be a slope of sorts, but you can only do so much with Cave Story.
4. Rave Fortress was kind of oof. It's pretty much required to have the Level 3 Sixbarreled Polar Star in that place if you want to actually kill things at a decent speed. You also needed a bit of health if you wanted to survive more than a few hits (which I ended up having since I'm a stickler for backtracking for upgrades, which in this case were previously inaccessible life capsules). The flying Gaudi were also a little annoying to deal with, since their new rainbow color scheme made it difficult to see when they were about to fire. Back to the backtracking thing, Rave Fortress was kind of backtracking heavy if you wanted all of its life capsules, which was worth it, I guess, but also a tad bit irritating. One last thing before getting to point 5: when I checked the Boombox's description, it didn't have anything changed. It'd probably be a good idea to do so, so it's not just a reskin of the Booster 0.8.
5.

Debug Cat's a ghost! Also, the second part of the fight had a nice touch, with the falling blocks, though with them being blocks that could nearly halve my health in one hit, even after all the life capsule hunting that I did, it was a little tense.
6. Finally, the fight with Corrupted Debug Cat was a little oof as well. It took me a while to realize that the rips in the environment were essentially floating -10 spikes, which was kind of an error on my part. Although I didn't fall onto any of the -127 spikes during the Puu Black form, it would kind of suck to make a slight error and have to redo the Toroko+ and Igor forms again. Finally, for the Sisters form, I had a harder time that I think I should have with it, though it was probably an error on my part again, since I was trying to use the Sixbarreled Polar Star instead of something that fired faster, like the Level 2 Shoddy Lyrics. Overall, it was also kind of oof how so many things did 10 damage when at the time I had a maximum of 29 health.

I got to the final boss.
I touched a rainbow slash.
I fucking died.
I have to go back to the save point that was 500 years ago
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
Why didn't you save in the room containing a life station and save disk before going through the door? Well, I guess I can see you thinking that the room was a fake, since you'd get teleported out so many areas prior to then, but it'd be logical to attempt to heal and save first before continuing.

I will probably update the mod to take most of this into account soon.

Played this, but got stuck?
Here's the save...
http://www.host-a.net/u/X-Calibar/ProfileStuck.zip

After using the bad teleporter, and returning to the rave party, I couldn't do anything else? Using the capsule sent me back to the room with the teleporter as normal quote, forcing me to redo that part over to return.

And the new door up top, does nothing.

Not sure if I caused an issue by just guessing the password before getting any hint events. I saw Jenn after guessing the password.

Played with version 1.13, profile transferred to 1.14, same problem. Going to start over and try again.

PS Nice job with the mod. I'll say more after finishing it~

The events got screwed up. Try again?

Download the mod again, I mean.
