-The starting event is still Kazuma's dialogue, you either have to set it on the correct map or remove the initial event call to it
-Please line up your text properly
-The spike entity (not spike tile) direction is set by changing the |event number| of the entity between 0 (default), 1, 2 and 3 (rotating clockwise)
-Tilesets could use a little shading
-It would be more realistic to learn how h/v triggers work than blocking the passage off until the player has talked to the cat

I suggest studying your TSCs a bit more before continuing, the mod's a bit messy to comment much more than that yet

You need to understand flags.
Also, text is text and should look nice.

I see you're following the agile development path.

Agile development includes pushing the product (source code -> compiled) every 24 to 48 hours or faster.
You seem to be pretty fast.

What are you talking about? That's obvious.
You posted this mod yesterday. Now you are releasing again.
That is faster than 48 hours.
You are pushing your product out to your audience again.
What is there to not understand?

I think the source code -> compiled was a bit confusing, since only programmers would recognize it. Also the wording of "pushing the product". I mean just say "releasing a demo after the first two days".
And jesus give him a break, you don't have to be pissy at everyone who walks in the metaphorical door to the forums

Yah that sprites pretty good, but I think your supposed to ask that kinda thing in the development and ideas (not real sure). Anyway remember to take your time and make sure it's at least a slightly finished product before showing it to everybody, it shows a real willingness to follow through.I cant even count the number of barely playable mods, not to mention unfinished ones in general. I'd probably make some comments about the actual mod here, however I have yet to play it. I will try it soon though. Oh and I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm just trying to share my experience with this kind of thing, I dont mean to insult or annoy you.

Ok, also news:The MyChar bmp is now 24-bit(Full Color) and i added a new background for the skys, that kinda looks like old clip art. (I like the style that some old clip art uses)

ANOTHER UPDATE: when i was making the new MyChar, i also made this as a joke, using a sprite on the cavestory.org characters page.(If this counts against the no wiiware sprites rule im sorry, it WAS on the tribute site you know.)
diph.php
I wish i could actually put this in the mod, Sucks that NiCALIS hates 2X res hacks for the freeware cave story...

No but i did get the name from pokemon =P

Guys can you tell me if this is a good sprite? its for a construction mimiga


I'm sorry, but I'm legally obligated to not help you with your sprite until you post it in my art help thread.

Also the colors seem a bit bright, you could tone them down a bit.
