Post news Report RSS Novostrana v0.30 Released!

After several months of hard work, we have finished the new version of Novostrana! It has many more features than planned and more content too.

Posted by on

The new version of the game can be found in our 'Downloads' section and is about 80MB. We have decided not to make a patch for this version because so much has changed that the patch would have to be quite large anyway.


Character Creation A Short History of Novostrana

In total, this version includes 70 different changes from the previous version of the game. There are far too many to list in this news article, but you can view what has changed by going to the 'Downloads' section and clicking on 'read more +' in the file description.
Here are a few of the major new features that have been added:

  • Over 20 new areas to explore.
  • Two more side-quests to complete.
  • More characters have been added to Willenke Village and all NPCs have had their dialogue options expanded and customised and each NPC has their own daily schedual based on the time of day and even the weather!
  • A new Character Creation system has been implemented, which adds a back-story to your character, but still allows you to customise your starting stats, name, appearance and even your starting equipment.
  • A Visual Equipment system has been added so that your appearance changes based on what equipment you are using.
  • You are now limited in how much you can carry by weight. If you can't carry enough, you can always buy a more heavy-duty bag from a mechant who may appear in Inns from time-to-time.
  • A new economy system has been implemented. Although you can only find traders in Willenke Village at the moment, when more settlements are completed you will find that different settlements have different levels of prosperity that change over time, affecting prices in that town or village.
  • Interiors have been added to all buildings in Willenke.
  • ... and many, many more features and improvements.

Will try, a nostalgic Role-playing game, what does someone, who played only FPS-games the latest time, want more?

At what point does it crash? When you start the game or when you try to enter a particular area, press a certain key, etc.?

Hmm... that's very odd. There shouldn't be any RGSS errors. I wonder if anyone else is getting any. Would you be able to tell me exactly what it says or post a picture of it?

Do you have RPG Maker XP installed on your PC? The game will work on PCs with the English version installed and PCs without the program installed, but if you have the Japanese version it may be causing problems. Don't worry, there's a simple fix if this is the case. Go into "C:\Program Files\RPG Magic\Novostrana" and open up "Game.ini". On the line that says "Library=RGSS102E.dll", change it to "Library=RGSS100J.dll".

No, the resource pack isn't required. To be honest, if you don't have RMXP installed then I have no idea what they problem could be.
Check on the website (http://www.rpg-magic.org/games/novostrana) to see if your computer meets the system requirements and, if it does, try reinstalling it.

I would put this game on the Spotlight, however its very opposed to being recorded.

Oh, you mean the program itself? Hmm... I managed to record some of the game this morning using a free program called CamStudio. You may have difficulty recording on full-screen though. It can be a bit terperamental on full-screen.
