    Zelda Classic 2.53.0 ( Beta 15 )

    Here is Zelda Classic 2.53.0 Beta 15 for Windows

    This thread replaces the previous Beta thread for 2.53.0.

    Here is ZC 2.53, Beta 15, which fixes the following, over the last major beta build:

    • Fixed quests made in 2.50.2 and earlier, using DrawCharacter() or DrawInteger() scale from improperly scaling.

    • Adds QR for Ganon Intro String issue.

    • The Ganon QR prevents showing a dmap intro string during a Ganon fight if the DMap rule 'Always Show Intro String' is enabled.

    • Adds Extra Rule so that quests made prior to 2.53.0 that have a magic cost on sword beams (only) do not apply it to sword blades. This is slated to become an item flag in 2.54.

    • Updated ZCL to 2.6.9.

    • Swords now obey magic costs.

    • Revised Quest Header dialogue and added tooltips to it.

    • Fixed 'About' version details.

    • Corrected the tooltip for Slash->Item combos.

    • Improved efficiency of string.zh functions, and updated the docs.

    • Fixed Link->Misc[] not being divided or multiplied (internally) by 10000.

    • Fixed Item Editor InitD values being clamped to -32786/32768.

    • VBound ZQuest combo editor fields: Cset to -15/+15, Aframes (0,255), ASpeed (0,255) to prevent rollover.

    • Optimised some functions in std.zh that returned boolean values and were comparing against != 0.

    • Fixed game ending sequence clipping from carrying over to another quest if ZC is reset during the ending.

    • Diagonally scrolling left and down from a specific pixel no longer crashes ZC.

    • Opening the console now presents the user with a warning that has a yes/no dialogue.

    • Optimised some std.zh functions.

    • Fixed a bug where F9 resetting during the ending sequence would preserve the clipping rectangle through to new quests.

    • Fixes issues with 1.84 quest compatibility.

    • Reworded Controller Directions dialogue.

    • Fixes issues with some 2.50.x quests that use Game->Get/SetCombo* functions (e.g. Panoply of Calatia).

    • Fixes DrawInteger not properly displaying values when set not to display a decimal point.

    • Fixes Size of Game->Lkeys[] and Game->LItems[].

    • Fixes rollover in the combo editor fields.

    • Split ag.cfg into three files: ag.cfg (RomView, ZCL), zc.cfg (Zelda Classic), and zquest.cfg (ZQuest), to prevent a file access clash that caused overwriting of settings.

    • Update for ZCL to use the new config files; and also to use zelda.exe, zquest.exe, and romview.exe, instead of files with a -w extension. This is likewise identical in Linux, dropping the -l extension for binaries. ZCL is now v2.6.4.

    See the Changelog below for more information. As before, the Build ID for this release is '31', to distinguish between 2.50.3RC1 (Build ID '30') and earlier ZC releases.

    We would appreciate bug reports on any of the following:
    • Playing quests made in 1.92, 2.10, 2.50.x and reporting any compatibility bugs.
    • Verification that scripts made in 2.50.0, 2.50.1, 2.50.2, and 2.50.3RC1 still work.
    • Testing that scripts compiled in 2.53.0 work properly in 2.53.0.
    • Tests that scripted quests compiled and saved in 2.53.0 work proper;y on 2.50.2 (and/or 2.50.3RC1).
    • Bug reports on any changes, or new features.
    • Bug reports on joystick configuration.

    Please note: The std.zh files in this package may not represent what will be included in the final release. It is likely that the std.zh changes will be pushed forward to 2.54 or later, and not included; but they will be available as a separate download. The latest versions of all common ZScript headers will be included in the final release.

    This release is built on the Allegro library, version 4.4.3, with some special fixes applies, and it includes new Allegro library files.

    Zelda Classic Changelog for v.2.53.0 Beta 14
    Spoiler: show


    ChangeLog for 2.53.0 Beta 14

    Added Extra Rule for older quests so that swords with a magic cost only apply it to beams,
    and backported it to 2.53.0.
    !! This needs to be an item editor flagset: Beams use Magic, Blade Uses Magic
    Added a QR No Intro String in Ganon Rooms and backported it to 2.53.0 (beta 14)
    ( ZoriaRPG, 28th March, 2018 )

    //Beta 13
    Fixed swords not obeying magic costs. ( ZoriaRPG, 15th January, 2018 )

    Added tooltips to the 'Quest Rev' and 'Min Rev' fields in the
    Quest Header dialogue.

    Cleaned up Header dialogue and made the quest number visible (but disabled)
    by default. Holding Right Shift while opening the dialogue makes it an editable field.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 14th January, 2018 )

    Fixed 'About' version details. ( ZoriaRPG, 14th January, 2018 )

    Corrected the tooltip for Slash->Item combos.

    Improved efficiency of string.zh functions, and updated the docs.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 10th January, 2018 )

    Fixed Link->Misc[] not being divided or multiplied (internally) by 10000.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 4th January. 2018 )

    Applied Item Editor fix for InitD values. (They were clamped from -31768 to 327678, and
    now they are clamped between -214748.3647 and 214748.3647.
    Applied to 2.54 Alpha 22, and 2.53 Beta 12.

    VBound ZQuest combo editor fields: Cset to -15/+15, Aframes (0,255), ASpeed (0,255) to prevent rollover from lack of sanity bounding. ( ZoriaRPG 16th october, 2017 )


    Optimised some functions in std.zh that returned boolean values and were comparing against != 0.

    Fixed game ending sequence clipping from carrying over to another quest if ZC is reset during the ending.
    Possible fix for the crash reported by Lut where scrolling through a specific pixel of the lower-left corner
    of screens would crash ZC. ( ZoriaRPG, 16th October, 2017 )

    Fixed a bug in std.zh where GetHighestLevelItem() would fail to return the correct values if the item IDs and levels
    were not in a matched ascending order (e.g. item 16 is level 2, item 18 is level 1), and similar.
    Added GetHighestLevelItemOwned() to std.zh. ( ZoriaRPG, 15th October, 2017 )

    Fixed button interface commandline filenames in ZCL. Updated version to 2.6.4. ( ZoriaRPG, 15th October, 2017 )

    Fixed issues with 1.84 quests.
    Added possible fix for Win10 slowdown. ( Gleeok, 15th October, 2017 )

    Reworded language for controller button dialogue:
    The controller button input dialogue used the wording 'Use Analogue Stick Instead of Buttons', which is misleading.
    On standard USB game pads, with a DPad, ZC recognises the DPad as an analogue stick (when using Windows), and thus,
    the controller DPad buttons cannot be mapped on an individual basis. This adjusts the wording to 'Use Analogue Stick/DPad'. ( ZoriaRPG, 10th October, 2017 )

    Split up ag.cfg into ag.cfg (RomView, ZCL), zc.cfg (Zelda Classic), and zquest.cfg (ZQuest) to fix some issues with
    ZC/ZQuest creating an access clash with one config file.
    Updated ZCl to use the new files. ZCL is now 2.6.3. ( ZoriaRPG, 6th Oct, 2017 )

    Reverted all of the Game->SetCombo* and Game->GetCombo* functions to their 2.50.2 states.
    The revised (2.50.3) functions broke quests using these functions in a way that cannot be resolved
    within the scope of the 2.50.x branch of Zelda Classic. ( ZoriaRPG, 2nd Oct, 2017 )

    Fixed DrawInteger() displaying a value that was off by one when sprinting with no decimal places. ( ZoriaRPG, 2nd October, 2017 )

    Fixed the array sizes of Game->LKeys[] and Game->LItems[] (256 to 512), and constrained the values on setting them so that they do not overflow (roll over). ( ZoriaRPG, 2nd October, 2017 )

    Added a warning when opening the debug console. ( ZoriaRPG, 1st Oct, 2017 )

    Removed an extra constant declaration in std_functions.zh.
    Changed the 'Import Script]' file selection dialogue. It now shows files with types of .zh, .zs, .zlib,
    .zscript, and a few other minor typed used by the userbase, rather than solely showing '.z' files. ( ZoriaRPG, 24th September, 2017 )

    Refactored the sanity checks for Game->Get/SetCombo* (except for SetComboSolid). These functions will now report
    any invalid refs passed to them (invalid map, screen, position) to allegro.log and abort, or return -1 to the user.
    The prior code either allowed passing an invalid ref, or never informed the user that it was invalid. ( ZoriaRPG, 23rd September, 2017 )

    Modified GetHighestLevelitem() in std.zh, to use a setting in std.cgf: This setting determines the highest item ID
    that GetHighestlevelitem() will check, rather than one version stopping at 143, and another at 255. ( ZoriaRPG, 22nd September, 2017 )

    Added a somewhat hackish fix for dungeon maps displaying when Link does not have them, during scrolling warps. ( ZoriaRPG, 22nd September, 2017 )

    Fixed issue with NPCs behaving as if they were drunk. ( Gleeok, 21st September, 2017 )

    Fixed issues with flying/floating/teleporting NPCS. ( Gleeok, 20th September, 2017 )

    Slightly adjusted left and right doors in 8-way movement. ( ZoriaRPG, 20th September, 2017 )

    Removed std_constants_shortcuts.zh from std.zh.
    Removed extra (unintended) array 'GlobalBuggr[214747] from std.zh.
    Fixed some issues with NPCA_* constants.
    Added NPC Attribute constants for all npc types, and every field with a lister.
    Fixed values for Direction to Degree and Radian conversions in std_functions and std_constants. ( ZoriaRPG )

    Fixed a bug where Link's weapons hurting him, in water, would cause buggy (uncontrolled) movement or land-swimming. ( DarkDragon )

    Fixed NES Dungeon Doors with diagonal movement. ( ZoriaRPG )

    Fixed a crash when using arrow and bow subscreen objects. ( Saffith )

    Updated qst.dat. Now, new quests will autosave, if you have timed save, or quest backup enabled. The error 'This quest
    was created in an older version of ZQuest' will no longer appear on new quests. ZoriaRPG, 1st September, 2017 )

    Applied a fix for numerous packfil_password() related problems.
    Fixed PNG saving in ZQuest. ( ZoriaRPG, 1st September, 2017 )

    Re-added New favourite commands, for Quest Reports (Combo Locations, Combo Type Locations, Enemy Locations, Integrity Check
    Item Locations, Script Locations, and What Links Here) to the Favourite Commands list. (This was in 2.future, but never
    ported to orthodox ZQuest.) ( ZoriaRPG, 1st September, 2017 )

    Fixed file selection dialogues in Zelda Classic. After selecting a quest in the Load Quest dialogue, the default button
    is now 'OK', rather than browse, so hitting the enter key after selecting a file does not put you into a file select loop.
    This was likewise something that I did before, but it was somehow lost in various commits. ( ZoriaRPG, 1st September, 2017 )

    Unfixed buggy wizzrobe compat issue. Proper fix is still pending... ( Gleeok, 28th August, 2017 )

    //Beta 7

    Initial update of ZLaunch, to add a ROMView launch button.
    Fixed a bug where the Tile Editor refused to load image files on the first attempt. ( ZoriaRPG, 27th August 2017 )

    Fixed a crash when loading corrupt 2.50.2 (and earlier) quest data; and recompiling scripts. ( DarkDragon, 25th August, 2017 )

    Fixed crash when viewing Compatibility Quest Rules. ( ZoriaRPG, 20th August, 2017 )

    Fixed a bug where the lens of truth stole the script of the last item used, and ran it every frame. ( ZoriaRPG, 20th August, 2017 )

    New Allegro libraries using Allegro 4.4.3, with some patches.
    Fixed issues with the infinite wallet.
    Fixed Link's attack not being cancelled when he is frozen.
    Fixed the race condition issue with keyboard input in Allegro 4.4.3. ( DarkDragon, 13th August, 2017 )

    Fixed an issue with scrolling between land and water. ( DarkDragon, 11th August, 2017 )

    Fixed an issue where the subscreen did not always update, by checking item validity when changing dmaps. ( DarkDragon, 10th August, 2017 )

    Reverted the quest rule for COMBOSDM. We'll come back to this, later. ( DarkDragon )
    Added compatibility rule for old quests that rely on screen item pick-up disabling hunger, for old quests. ( DarkDragon, 21st July, 2017 )

    //Beta 6
    Added a few functions to std.zh. ( ZoriaRPG, July 2017 )

    Fixed a bug in ZQuest that was corrupting ag.cfg. ( DarkDragon; and ZoriaRPG, July, 2017 )

    Fixed a bug where MIDI files could not be loaded in ZQuest. ( DarkDragon, July 2017 )

    Updated std.zh to 2.50.3 version, plus some rearranging in a std_zh path.
    Updated all included headers to their current versions.
    Pruned some files.
    Unlocked 1st.qst and 2nd.qst. ( ZoriaRPG, 11th July, 2017 )

    Fixed incorrect types for CollDetection and some other boolean return variables in ZScript.
    This includes Link->CollDetection, Link->Invisible, npc->CollDetection, lweapon->CollDetection and
    eweapon->CollisionDetection ( ZoriaRPG, 2nd July, 2017 )

    Seem to have fixed reported bug of ZC crashing if the user shifts focus when assigning joypad buttons.
    In any case, I can not replicate it in this build, and I did change a read_button function that was a bit bonkers. ( ZoriaRPG, 2nd July, 2017 )

    ZC and ZQuest now use Allegro 4.4. (DarkDragon, 2nd July, 2017)

    Fixed 3rd quest with zero deaths not going to 5th quest. ( ZoriaRPG, 20th June, 2017 )

    Reverted COMBOSDM change made by Saffith, as it caused different bugs with older players.
    This is properly fixed in 2.51+. ( ZoriaRPG, 20th June 2017 )

    Fixed scale args for DrawChar() and DrawInteger(): Both of these now scale per zscript.txt documentation. ( ZoriaRPG, Jan 2017 )

    Zelda Classic Menus: Added Etc->Show Debug Console. This opens the Allegro debug console or closes it if it is open. ( ZoriaRPG, Jan 2017 )

    ZScript Variables in scope are destroyed when their scope exits. ( DarkDragon, Jan 2017 )

    Small fixes to joystick input.
    Fixed minor issues in key config dialogues. ( Saffith, 18-Dec-2016 )

    Fixed an invalid read in draw_wavy(). ( Saffith, 14-Dec-2016 )

    Ensure overscan rectangle is black while the screen is shaking.

    ZLaunch Changes v2.6.9
    Spoiler: show

    ZCL Changelog

    Version 2.6.x

    2.6.9
    Removed extra instance of 'Tile Protection' box.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 3rd March, 2018 )

    2.6.8
    Changed the titlebar text to indicate that ZC 2.53.0 or higher is required for ZCL.
    Fixed the text set by GDI mode (was setting the .cfg string to GBID, not GDIB)
    Widened the pulldown combo-boxes under the drivers tab so that the options are completely visible.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 22nd January, 2018 )

    2.6.7
    Added preliminary OSX support.

    2.6.6
    Added Linux video drivers, and MacOSX Video drivers.
    Streamlined the drivers interface to one TCombo pair. ( ZoriaRPG 16th December, 2017 )

    2.6.5
    Fixed 'Show Misaligns' in ZQuest Options 2 not setting the zquest.cfg value.
    ( ZoriaRPG, 15th December, 2017 )


    2.6.4

    Fixed calls fromn the button UI to zelda-w.exe and zquest-w.exe to use zelda.exe and zquest.exe. ( ZoriaRPG, 15th October, 2017 )

    2.6.3

    Binary: Updated upx compressed binary file to v2.6.3.

    Chore: Fixed version ID. ( ZoriaRPG, 6th October, 2017 )

    Fix: Added hardcoded config settings for RomView.
    Changelog: Added hardcoded agcfg.writestring() values for ['romview-graphics']. ( ZoriaRPG, 6th October, 2017 )

    2.6.2

    Changed calls to romview-w.exe and romview-l to romview.exe and romview, for Windows and Linux, respectively.
    Added write instructions for the [graphics] section (for video drivers) to write to all three config files.

    Segregated all calls to ag.cfg:
    All calls to ag.cfg have been segregated as follows:
    Calls specific to ZC read and write to zc.cfg.
    Calls specific to ZQuest read and write to zquest.cfg.
    Calls for ROMView, and all calls made for ZCL-specific sections
    ( section 'ZCL' and section 'graphics' ) read and write to ag.cfg. ( ZoriaRPG, 6th October, 2017 )

    Removed the -w and -l filename tags for the binaries.
    The compiler output for ZC outputs zelda.exe, and zquest.ext, romview.exe
    on windows, and zelda, zquest, and romview for Linux and OSX.

    The change uses the filenames from the compiler output.
    (MacOSX versions will follow this format.)

    The change is:
    zelda-w.exe -> zelda.exe
    zquest-w.exe -> zquest.exe
    zelda-l -> zelda
    zquest-l -> zquest

    This should speed up some testing, as the filename changes are time-consuming. ( ZoriaRPG, 6th October, 2017 )


    2.6.1

    Added Win32 platform guards to ZCL video driver selection, and bumped version to 2.6.1. ( ZoriaRPG, 29th August, 2017 )

    Added the ability to set the allegro video mode on Windows (fullscreen, and windowed drivers).

    Added 'Drivers' tab. ( ZoriaRPG, 28th August, 2017 )
    Added ROMView launching button to main panel. ( ZoriaRPG, 27th August, 2017 )



    Thank you for testing, and for your feedback!

    I'm sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, but I noticed the 1st and 2nd quests are unpassworded, is this intentional?
