UPDATE: Despite the posting date, this is all serious. :)


"- Battle routine, set!
"- Execute!!"


Do these words sound familar to you? They might - many of you have read them multiple times over the course of the Battle Network series. While the series has been over for some years now, what if you could create your own NetNavi? Go fight some viruses and opponents? And, most importantly, play against other human opponents?

What if you could do that right here, right now?

This is what Cyber Grid is all about!

It's a web-based, multiplayer Battle Network-like RPG game! Integrated within IOBoard, the game exists within it's own section and is available to all registered users of the forums. Once you enter the game, you create your own character (a NetNavi), define it's characteristics, define a strategy, then go battle against computer and human opponents alike! Not a fan of the Mega Man series? Never played a Mega Man Battle Network game? It doesn't matter, as no background knowledge is required to enjoy Cyber Grid!

How to access this game? Follow the Cyber Grid link in your user options! If you're not logged in, you'll have to do that first.


Note that there are probably some game balance issues that'll need to be ironed out. As with any online game launches, I fully expect several tweaks to be necessary! Those will be posted in the Game Log.

I'd like to thank the following people who helped me at some point with this project. All four handled parts of the game design, data entry and bug fixes, and that help was precious!
- The Helldragon
- J_Hibiki
- Arkane
- Sb20


Cyber Grid reuses several concepts of the Battle Network series yet shakes things up quite a bit with a radically different battle engine. There's a fine line in the Mega Man world between "too much reuse" and "too many changes", and I hope that we got the right balance to keep things fresh while sticking to what made the series fun in the first place. This is, hopefully, also easy to understand for non-fans of the Mega Man series.

Note that this project is definitely not aiming to compete with the folks at MMBN Chrono X, or do something similar to them. They're going to create a full-blown sequel; what we have here is a multiplayer web game based on some concepts of the series only, which will hopefully also be attractive to non-Battle Network fans.

I'll be monitoring closely the launch for any problems or bugs that you might encouter. If something doesn't look right, please post in the appropriate forum and I'll give it a look.


Enjoy! :D

WAIT

WAIT

YOU GOT THIS TO WORK

IT DIDN'T DIE?!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

EDIT: Current bugs seems to include some viruses hitting me after they've been deleted (Swordy), weird HP values (400/200 before I leveled up once) and the inability to change my buster name and description. Will mess with it more after waking up.

In order:
- I'm not sure yet about viruses hitting you after they die, I haven't seen that happen yet.
- You still have your old profile, so your HP is higher than it should be at this point. It will probably balance itself out.
- Good catch on editing a buster's name and description, we overlooked that. You can now do so from the main NetNavi editing page!
- You have a broken folder, which includes some invalid chips. I gave you a copy of the starter one, I highly suggest you switch to it so you get the correct game balance.

The forums for the RPG were hidden initially, they are now visible for everyone. :) Profile image uploading might have been broken until now, please try again.

It takes a bit to appear sometimes.

I see all three of your images: NetNavi avatar, profile and emblem.

There were some glitches with images last night, though. Let me know if that's still an issue.

Okay, Swordy 1 definitely keeps attacking even after it's deleted.

Yeah I'm having the slain enemies attacking issue too, with Starfish 2s.

Also got this error when in a battle against a generic Navi: Warning: getimagesize(avatars/netnavis/profile/4.png) [function.getimagesize]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/inter/public_html/mboard/sources/classes/CNavi.php on line 134

Appeared over both Navis present.

Actually now I'm just getting a whole slew of errors when fighting against GenericModel1.EXE. It even froze at one point, and I had to refresh, which put me into another battle, and THEN back into the fight with the GenericModel1.EXE.

And now Canodumbs are fighting after death. A lot of enemies are doing so, it seems.

The problem you had with GenericModel1.EXE is linked to the images issue that I still can't seem to track down. I fixed it for now, but it might return.

I've made a topic about enemies still attacking after being deleted. Please post there if it happens again, I've enabled some extra debugging logs to try and track down the problem, if there's any.
