Modifications to a clean ROM:
  • Expanded ROM to 6MB
  • Extend Characters enabled
  • Script expanded to 2700 lines
  • HQ Messages moved to 2500 script region
  • Nova character stats and sprite values edited
  • 5x new battle sprites added to Sprite index #35
  • 5x new frames added to Animation index #59
  • Force member ID #30 (Nova) set to join during Lowe's opening dialogue with Max
Using June 1, 2018 Discord Test Build

Rom tested in Kega Fusion 3.64.

Issue:

At the start of the game in Guardiana, after speaking with Varios and Lowe and attempting to enter Guardiana Castle region:



...Max is teleported outside of Guardiana to the world map to this exact position:



Upon interacting with the Max map sprite near the bridge, he morphs into Varios and initiates HQ dialogue:



Entering Guardiana is possible, but when attempting to reach Guardiana Castle region again Max is teleported to the same spot in the same scenario, unable to break the loop.

Seems similar to the first issue i had with the new release, but RC did resolve it, perhaps it's something else this time?

@Lobo RC is confident that the latest editor release fixed the issue, so I fear we may never know. :p

But now you've got me thinking about adding the actor as a jokey playable character... maybe a variant of Max where his stance is off and his attack is all clumsy and wild... hmm.

Cool!
And just now you made me think Pelle could be the actor who plays the Rune Knight. ;)

Now that i see... have Nova ever appeared in the battle field? Or his voice is only in our heads? Maybe he is more then he looks after all!

That's a good point! Perhaps Max and Nova are the pioneers of FaceTime!

Well, after Guardiana, he does appear in Manarina and inside the ship in Rindo.
Also in Runefaust after the last battle.
I don't think he does any other time, including all battles.

Maybe he's some kind of Talking Cricket of sorts.
Or he drinks a 'Caravan Potion' outside HQ and get carried inside Max's pocket?
