"Z Warrior Chronicles" is an independent project being worked on by Xatoku based off of the popular Dragonball Z franchise by Akira Toriyama. This project has been going since early April 2011, and has gone through many revisions along the way, but the story elements are now being worked on and progress is booming. The aim of this project is to emulate the Dragonball Z world in an Action/RPG type scenario,and tell the story of the Z Fighters as best it can. The gameplay is best described as a combination of Legacy of Goku 2 & Dragonball Z Sagas on the GBA & PS2 respectively, along with a ton of Anime inspired gameplay elements as well. Production is naturally at a slow but steady pace due to the development team being only me, but I've invested all of my free time into this project and have no intention on stopping any time soon.

Here's another release to hold you guys over. There will be a few more updates after this until the proper release, but this is what I have so far.

Posted by Xatoku on Mar 14th, 2012

**Please read the Bug List below before posting about bugs/glitches**
Okay.  This one should work.

Mediafire.com

This has the new Goku, new Landing, and some new combat systems to top it all off.  Again, this isn't the huge release I've promised but it is definitely improved from the Speed Melee release.

Next I am going to model and animate Piccolo.  There are a select few of animations which I will have to reuse for consistency and productivity's sake, so please don't disclose me as lazy when you see them in the next release.

I'm thinking I'll release the Piccolo version, then a Raditz version, and then I will hold off until I get everything in place.  Until then, enjoy this update, and tell me if you see anything worth changing.  Please keep your comments legitimate though, no revolutionary suggestions because that phase in development is pretty much over.  Now it's time to focus on getting this game made. 

I'll try and get the Piccolo model completed as fast I can, but don't expect Piccolo in-game for a few weeks.  Later!

BUG LIST:

  • Sometimes the Kamehameha will not fire and freeze the game.
  • Fix the smoke sprites up a bit.
  • Ki Blast needs animations.
  • Ki Wave freezes the game.
  • Sometimes when you die, it will freeze the game and you will remain in battle stance.
  • Joystick controls need reworking.
  • You fall too slowly.
  • Enable flight battle stance.
  • Add some freaking senzu beans!
  • Energy has shadows, and not enough glow.

EDIT:
For joystick users, there will be an update in the future to accommodate any controller support.  Until then, just use the keyboard.

Oh and the smoke clouds look too cartoony. It shouldn't have outlines and should have some shading. I964.photobucket.com

I havent started playing this update yet,but I must notice that it would be better if you do something like if someone downlande some previous game this just goes on top of that.You know,we downland 100 MB every time and some stuff are the same.
Anyway cant wait to see what's in this one :)

Like an SVN of a sort, right? I'm working on it, trust me. I know it's a lot to download every so often, especially once we get to bigger updates. I'll figure something out, but it may take some time.

I noticed some stuff that I would like to change.With mouse view you can rotate around the character,but I think it's better to turn the character when you rotate the mouse view(more natural)Does picolo work,I think I couldnt move it.Btw why am I close to raditz when I start the game.Are previous levels deleted?Also that kamehameha bug.I am not sure but one kamehameha works,some other attack doesnt work and it always freezes the game...
keep up,characters are really awesome.Just dont get it why is their outline soo fat.

since when raditz is so strong?????
i can't beat him! i give him 10(or more) kamehameha ,i punch him in the face for 5 minutes and he still wipe the ground with me . Oh , and sometimes he is flying up in the air so fast that i can't catch him ... and he never stops (after that i must press ALT+F4 OR CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO EXIT THE GAME) BUT YOU STILL DID A GOOD JOB WITH THE GAME!!

Thanks for reporting that flight glitch, I've gotten it once or twice myself. I'll squash that bug soon.

As for his death, that's because I haven't added it yet! Boom!

Ty for changing that aura XD. Wow been a while since I've seen your progress man and I've gotta say great job. I see you kept the whole camera mode switching thing. I love it. And I feel that everything is awesome and will be amazing once you polish it up and stuff. Can't wait to see that Piccolo model.No rush and good luck!
