I really like to play parties of all the same class. Have you done much testing with balance? I know some parties are better than others, but can you finish the game with all parties?
Am I also able to play with less than the maximum number of characters (6)?

Sorry if these have been answered already.

I have not played a game n moths; need some testing done??? :D

So far based on the testing I have done I have only played with Paladin, Cleric, Archer, Barbarian, Thief, and a Sorcerer. They seem to work very well together, similar two MM7 but with six characters instead of 4. The skill system is pratically the same as MM7 with a couple changes like thieves and monks not using magic. I don't believe they should use magic. I had to build a skill system for the angel and barbarian classes, and also rules for etheral magic.

I am assuming it will be possible to finish the game with less than six characters, but be warned LOE's difficulty is much higher than MM. The way creatures attack are similar to both MM3-5 and MM6-8. They have multiple attack per round and speed determines rounds of attack. So if you say have a party of three and all are very slow and you encounter lets say a Storm bug which is fast and has 2 attacks per round, this creature might be able to get 2-3 rounds with 2 attacks each on the party. It could be pretty tough. How the attack turns are determined for heroes are speed, level, bonus and weight.

Here are all of the latest screenshots to LOE. They reflect upon the new higher resolution that has been implemented into LOE.

Hello, i'm new to forums but visiting celestial heavens for a several years (mostly for HoMM games). I'm huge fan of MnM universe, both M&M and HoMM franchises. Savetara, ur project is impressive. Since u are using RPG Maker VX I must say i didn't like first look of ur game. Don't get me wrong, i just didnt like it graphicaly (i'm sick of those manga looks). But i read and browsed all pages of ur original thread (RPG and Tactics thread) and i saw ur progression, u are doing some awesome job here, gratz! I always wondered is there any maker or editor for 1st person rpg games like MnM or Elder Scrolls, and u did it with RPG Maker, i didnt know it's possible, is it ur work or is it built into RPG Maker? Cuz now i'm far far more interested in this project and looking forward to "try" (COMPLETE) game when it's released :)

Thanks!

Rpg Maker VX is a very very flexible engine if you want to push it to its limits. Unfortunately, rpg maker is a big attraction to the manga style rpgs, and you won't see too many projects such as LOE being made with it. The 2d version of LOE was the beginning of implementing the MM scripts I was working on. Now I got a system with a combination of Xeen and MM7. The 3d script isn't my own creation, but the work I had to put into it to actually make it work is my own. For instance, enemy AI doesn't work well with the original 3d script. Now, you will find enemy ai similar to xeen.

Thanks again for your kind words, for it is you fans and my own compassion for MM that gives me the drive to continue onward with this project.

Here is another update on LOE:

- I have created more compositions to OST.
- I fixed some bugs in regards to a couple shops in the later cities.
- Unarmed skill now has a expert and master trainer
- I added a new skill to the game, treasure, which allows you to have increased odds of finding treasure off of creatures from battle
- I added three new quests to the game
- I added a couple of new creatures to the game
- I revealed a sneak peak of the sci-fi portion to the game

I think that is it for now. I did take a couple months off, but I am back to work on the project.

@Torur
Thanks!

Here is the latest trailer for LOE:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYveOBy3ZLw

This is the latest trailer as of August, 8, 2012. This video shows all of the latest changes such as the new treasure skill and the higher resolution update. All of the music played in the background is from the LOE OST which I am also currently composing.

NOTES: There may be some lag in the video due to the recording software. SFX have been disabled for the video. There is an error while transferring items to other characters. The window is not in the proper position.

Thanks guys! I hope I was able to answer and clarify some unanswered questions in this interview.

Also, just as an update, Paul, my dialogue and quest designer has completed writing up all of the first and second promotion quests. You guys can expect some serious progress with LOE in the coming few months.

Thanks Grayface. Here is the latest video for the Ultima Version. I purchased all of the graphics for this version of LOE, and it is western style non-anime.
