Great. An official Fuse Man.

Welp, guess it’s a good thing I haven’t released the final update to this game yet. However, now I’m not sure what to rename Fuse Man or his weapon. So, if anybody has any suggestions, feel free to comment.

    Hello, it’s me, MegaVile (the guy who posted the ideas for the fusion master weapon colors.)

    I recently came on down and thought that since Fuse Man has been shot down. (Only took 5 years.) We might as well change it to Blast Man, with the Phantom Blast. Just my thought.

    Not the BEST idea, but perhaps some kind of ‘Detonate Man’?

    It’s within the general character limit (Tomahawk Man), and detonators are in line with his theming. Doesn’t really work for Phantom Fuse (Phantom Detonator is _really_ long), but you really don’t need to rename Phantom Fuse, shouldn’t be any confusion there.

          Alright, I think I’m gonna go with Boom Man then! Makes things easier, since it’s still four letters, and it sounds like a name the robot master himself would capitalize on.

          “Boom, baby!”

          Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

            Incidentally, that’s the name I was about to suggest (late to the party). Between this and Unlimited’s Trinitro Man debacle, explosives-themed Robot Masters sure are prone to getting their original names used officially.

            That said, this should be easy to fix in the game, right?

            Yeah, compared to everything else, it’s not that big of a deal to fix. It’s just another small thing I didn’t feel like doing. =/

            hey man, any foreseeable release date for the final version? also, i have a question since i haven’t played the second version and was waiting for the final one, can you please tell me what are the the main differences between the first one and the second

          4. GoldwaterDLS Post author

            Nah, I already tried to give a release date before and ended up being very very wrong. Also, all the detailed changes between versions can be found in the Change Logs here. Basically, the biggest changes were that the Rock Force members became playable, alternate Fusion Masters appeared depending on who was the last Robot Master defeated, a different final level, and a revamped ending.

            As a compromise, is it possible to at least give out a rough percentage (in numbers) of how much of it is completed? Just to give people a general idea of how close you are to the goal, is all.

      Hmm, that would be a third for Wick Man, since it was one that crossed my mind too. I do like it, but I think I’ll be sticking to Boom Man. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Will the new update be like a completely different game? The fact that you’ve been working on it for three years, paints a picture of how big the update could be.

      I won’t deny that there have been quite a few significant additions, but I also don’t want to over-hype people on what’s going to be included. I guess I’d say it’s the same cake, but I’m adding twice the layers. =V Also, in recent months, I haven’t been working on it as faithfully as I used to, but I think that’s because I suffered a bit of burn out from it. However, I’m forcing myself back into the swing of things.

        With the way development is sounding, it seems like this update may not be coming out until late 2018, or even 2019. Oh well; it’s done when it’s done. Keep up the good work.

      2. barberbarberjoe

        Regardless of whenever it’ll come out, at least we’ll have a pretty good alternative to Mega Man 11, in case that falls short. 😉

        Do take your time!

    Unrelated to the name issue,but are you planning on adding a New Game+? It would be great to be able to play with any character from the intro stage to the ending scenes. It would be incredible to see something like that coming in the next update,for sure I would play with everyone.

    was thinking on maybe Explode Man or Explosion Man…maybe Detonate Man?

    also I don’t know if It’s too much to ask, but perhaps making the game compatible with different controllers, like gamepads? I use a Xbox One controller because outside of Doom Mods, I’m not really that great with keyboards.

      Good suggestions, though I think Boom Man is pretty conclusive at this point. Controller support is a planned feature for this final release; it had been put off up this point because integrating it would require a complete revision of much of the game’s code and I felt there were more pressing matters to attend to at the time. Now I have no excuse… =V

      1. barberbarberjoe

        That’s excellent to hear! =D

        Here’s to hoping the release will get finished someday, though. I think you’ve reached the point where it’s far too late to ask you for any more changes.

    1. GoldwaterDLS Post author

      Eh, while I’d like to, I have a feeling people would be getting on my case about it without doing any research; so, best to just avoid the problem altogether by changing it.
