  1. Two things: 1: At the final boss. Can't even hurt it for some reason: all spells except wind heals it and wind does nothing as far as I can tell. Not sure if it's a glitch or I'm just dumb. Also: is that mist at the bottom supposed to hurt me or something?

    2: Is losing to the final boss supposed to give you an animation and no CG? It just flashes something... corner of the tentacles CG, I think... and bumps back to the title screen. A CG viewing mode would've been nice (if it doesn't just show up when you beat the game, since I haven't yet.) I found all five CG already though, so I guess that one isn't in yet?

  2. the wind spell is the only one that can damage her :) and there is no cg for the final boss, though in the new year i'll probably add one along with the gallery mode (i've also been trying to improve the sfx)

    i also did a cg for the tongue demon :) and thats going in next update too

  3. I found an odd glitch, just outside of the final boss room you can use the wind spell to fly into the ceiling and go into the wall of the final boss room. It happened everytime I did this, so it's not a random occurrence.

  4. Sorry, I have poor English.
    Yesterday I downloaded "Grimoire" from DLsite.
    The file name is "Grimoire dlsite.exe".
    The contents were the same as the demo version in this homepage.

    1. then dlsite messed up, do you mean you couldnt progress after the first boss? i'll get on them later

      Delete
    2. Yes.It is displayed with "Please buy the game".

    3. If you email me at azurezero@live.co.uk i'll send you the unlock file, though i already contacted dlsite to fix it.

      the fuckup is mine, but it only happened because they kept makign me resend new versions (bullshit inadequate censorship)

  5. Your demo doesn't seem to work for me. Whenever i run it it seems to work fine but the very first room has a pink grid like wall and i cant progress to anything. Also if i hit the D key it freezes up. Please help i want to buy!

    1. you can aim up by holding up, you need to hit strange box above the grid
      and i made a different version for people with that crash issue, it seems to be a clash between game makers functions and video cards

      https://mega.co.nz/#!ih4R3KZa!Hs5Sh2FKNoHW9P9DiniZdtOE90FNJbG8YhzuUp_QMTM

      heres that version, there are a few issues with it, but i did try every method of screencapping i could think of before settling on none... the game wouldve crashed when you paused it so the game would be annoyingly difficult otherwise (since you couldnt level up)

  6. Don't mean to sound like an idiot, but no matter what button I mash, I can't seem to escape grapples. Is there a keycombo you need to press to escape such things?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. its set to any key, meaning mash whatever, the standard is 40 presses

    2. Ah, thanks. I'll be more persistant then. ._.

      Thanks for the quick reply by the way. Going to buy it in a bit.

    3. youll be my first in 4 days... the few i got over the weekend were absorbed by me buying dominos pizza lol...*sigh* i wish my impulse control was better, be sure to check the majo demo too, because im working on that mostly and it will be done soon (before march)

      Delete
    4. Which is somewhere around now.

    5. Sounds good, I'll be checking that out and hey, if you want to get rid of such impulses, you might want to google some of those "true story" things about what they put into your pizza. ;P

    6. i already assumed they put something in it thats addictive...which would be why i crave it...i only buy it on buy one get one free days though, but im down to £46 in the bank

      Delete
    7. Yep, that's how they do it. By the way, I mashed a bazillion buttons, not working. Help?

    8. how odd...

      the code is right... i wonder whats different about your computer thats causing it

      Delete
    9. Just found out it happens at the save after you fell down that hole in the beginning, the purple ballshooting one can't be escaped, where I could with another enemy.

      Delete
    10. the code is identical...hmmmm ...curious... though those enemies are really easy to not get grabbed though

      Delete
    11. I may or may not have let that happen intentionally. >.<

  7. On another note: I'm having the sheepgirl grapple issues myself. And on top of that, if I get hit by a bat, the game glitches out and puts me on a screen I don't with nothing on it, and then goes back to the title screen when I hit enter, like there was supposed to be an animation there but isn't. It does it instantly every time too, which is annoying enough I haven't gotten past it yet.

    1. https://mega.co.nz/#!eoonRApT!jmgdM3BRnuX6TG8ECYrZdvR-Zep57Uyt8bsOTJID_x4 try this version (the bat problem)

      Delete
  8. I'll take another look, it sounds like you got sent to room0 (the first room in the project) since the game over room is stored as a global variable... hmmm...

    thanks for telling me that still happens though, i allready cut out a lot of ways it could occur

  9. Okay, I figured out why I was getting insta-killed... I modified the save file to jack up my attack because I was running through it to unlock the CG (already beat it once) and that apparently also raises the bat's attack. The 1.2 version does give me the proper gameover CG instead of room0 or whatever, although it is the censored version. I should be fine using 1.1 unless there were other differences, just have to not make my attack so high, annoying as it is.
