For what it is worth, I've enjoyed this game thus far. This game is hard, but possible. I did feel compelled to replace the included copy of Distributed's, "Down with the Sickness" with another MP3. The original music is quite well done.

To play, you must setup the patch 2.0.1 correctly. I had to "install" it to a separate location, then copy all of those file to the Tainted Element directory. The "patched" game.ini file had a line which didn't allow me to run the game, so I just removed "RTP=RPGVXAce" from the start of that ini and everything worked after that. You know it is working if you start with an assassination in a temple instead of calmly walking around a town.

Thanks for putting this together for us to enjoy!

Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I intended to remove the Disturbed song, but guess I never did. This project got pushed pretty far back due to some videos, podcasts, and other stuff I've taken it, but it remains something I intend to fix and finish. Thank you for your patience. :)

Hey, your game is pretty cool, but I hit a bug early on where right after the dialogue between the main character and some elf trying to sell its body, the game won't let me move. Should I reinstall or is there something else wrong?

Don't reinstall yet. Let me take a look and see what's going on. It's surely an issue with the event. I'll trace it down and upload a modified version. I haven't added much lately, so you're practically at the end of where I've reached as it is, but it's been an unusually busy two weeks. Sorry for not moving forward quickly.

I've added a small patch above that should fix the issue. Looks like it had to do with where the NPC was trying to move to. Just extract the files to the same directory as you initially installed to, and choose to overwrite. I'll upload a more recent version of the core game so that patching isn't necessary soon, but I need to finish that section with Drusilia first. Will be this week, if you want to just wait for a more substantial update. Most likely Saturday.

Oh okay, awesome, thanks! I'll probably get both updates, just because things like that are interesting to me, and your game looks kinda amazing :3 I'm really into storytelling, so I can't wait to see what you've got planned next.

I am currently snagged with a complex event, but that's good. I like complex events, and they're only going to get more complex as things continue, especially since the hand-holding part is nearly over. There were initially five of these "starting areas" planned, but I've dropped the fifth one because I felt like it was just too much, like by that point players would be like "Are we ever going to get past the intro?!"

Thanks for the input. Hopefully I can deliver. :D
