    Zelda Classic 2.53 Gamma (RC) 4 for Windows

    Zelda Classic 2.53.0 Gamma (RC) 4 for Windows
    Includes ZLaunch, 2.6.11, fixing the inability to save the Skip Logo config setting.

    Changes Over Gamma 3

    Code:
    Resized fields for text entry to fit five chars.
    Fixed Init Data (and cheat data) field sizes for:
        Heart Containers (was a field size of 2, now 3)
        Starting HP (in hearts, was 3 now size 5)
        Starting Magic (was size 3, now 5)
        Max Magic (was size 3, now 5)
        Super Bomb Ratio (was size 2, now 3)
    
    Updated qst.dat
    
    Fixed the SignPost ffc script.
    
    Moved the new functions from Classic.zh to std_functions.zh.
    Added some relativity functions to Classic.zh--should move to std_functions.zh:
        DistXY(ffc, int), LeftOf(), RightOf(), Above(), Below(), Facing(ffc).
    
    2.50.x quests with a build < 31, or quests with a header
        version < 0x250 will now write hitsfx = WAV_EHIT, for all guys where
        the hitsfx sound == 0, on saving a quest in 2.53.
    
    Quests made in 2.53 Gamma 0/1 or earlier (build 31) now load
        WAV_EHIT into the enemy editor hitsfx field when the editor opens.
        This prevents corruption of the quest by modifying the value on quest load,
        and ensures that the value only changes if the user saves the quest in 2.53.
    
    2.50.2 AND EARLIER play SFX_HIT even if Enemy Editor Hit Sound is 0.
        Thus, I added a special case that causes this to happen in guys.cpp, based
        on header version and build.
    
        Arbitrary enemy policy 15610. :P
        ( ZoriaRPG, 25th February, 2019 )
    
    Fixed Byrna Cleanup Routine killing SFX 30. This was caused by
        `last_cane_of_byrna_item_id` never being able to be -1 because it was declared
        as byte, instead of int.
    
    Classic.zh Fixes and Improvements:
        Renamed constants to prevent future conflicts.
        BossMusic ffc:
            Fixed a bug that caused the victory music to re-play when the
            player revisited the screen.
            Added InitD variables to allow customisation by the user.
        BossExplode ffc:
            Added InitD variables to allow customisation by the user.
        DropTRIFORCE ffc:
        DropHEARTCONTAINER ffc:
            Fixed a bug that caused the TF drop to repeat if the player revisited
            the screen.
            Added a dropshadow to the object when falling.
            Slowed falling descent.
            Clamped screen coordinates of drop to ensure that the object does
            not fall partway off the edges of the screen.
        ( ZoriaRPG, 24th February, 2019 )
    
    
    Added scripts 'DropTRIFORCE' and 'DropHEARTCONTAINER' to Classic.zh.
        Fixed issue where invalid weapons were loaded by 'BossMusic' ffc script
        because of a Waitframe in the loop.
        Removed traces.
    
    Added a case for r_down dir on 8-way EW_MAGIC shots.
        ( ZoriaRPG, 22nd February, 2019 )
        
    Updated qst.dat with all of the new goodies.

    Added overload functions to Collision() that function as LinkCollision().
    
    Updated ffc scripts in classic.zh to clear their combo on init.
    Fixed signpost script.
    Added default fireworks ffc to copy and paste, on map 1, screen 0x82.
    Added combo using the Fire Work tile to combo page 3, as combo 904.

            const int _BOSS_EXPLODE_DELAY
            const int _BOSS_EXPLODE_RANDOM_MIN

        I'm tired of this one, too.
    Began adding some default scripts to Classic (as Classic.zh), and
        corrected some constants in the included scripts, to match.

        it is enabled by default for 2.50.0 and 2.50.1 quests.

    Very nice update. Fullscreen now works and that's a big plus for me. I also like the new gray menu color.

    However, I have noticed a couple of minor issues. First of all, when using a gamepad (which I do), the Start/Select buttons no longer seem to work. This is not a big problem, as I can simply use the keyboard controls to bring up the subscreen, but these used to function. Secondly, when cheats are enabled, most of the cheat hotkeys don't wprl (ie, pressing "b" to replenish bombs or "h" to refill health, and others).

    But those are minor things. All in all, great update, thanks to all the ZC Development team for this!

    Are your start and select buttons mapped? Can you map them from the Gamepad config dialogue? This is obviously a deal-breaker, if you cannot.

    If not, then what brand and mode of controller are you using?

    Cheat Hotkeys now have modifiers: By default, you are required to press Left Shift + Left Alt when using cheat hotleys. You can remap the required modifiers one, or two keys) in zc.cfg; or disable them entirely. The purpose of this, is to avoid a situation where control key bindings would be the same key as a cheat modifier key.

    The darl theme, is something that I designed to my personal tastes.

    If you run ZLaunch, you can easily shift themes: There is another new theme, too.

    P.S. Did you mean fullscreen for ZC, or for ZQuest? What OS are you using? One user on PZC reported that for them fullscreen suddenly broke (ZQuest) on Win7. It's pretty random, based on gfx chipsets and the like, if it works, or not, because some drivers do not like dropping to 8bbp.

    I hope to resolve this in 2.60->3.xx.

    I did in fact think to reconfigure the controller settings after posting that and it now works fine.

    How do I go about modifying the zc.cfg file? I don't want to mess around with that unless I know what I'm doing.

    Fullscreen works in Classic, I haven't tried it in ZQuest yet. The quest I and my friend are putting together is still in the planning stages and we have more work to do before we are ready to put it together in ZQ. I am running Windows 8.1 with default drivers so I couldn't tell you anything about Win 7 or other drivers.

    UPDATE: ZQ won't open if set to fullscreen, or if the window scale us set to anything besides x1. It will still open in the original size window, however.

    [/quote[]

    It works fine after setting it from the GUI though; right?

    In zc.cfg, set all of these to 0 to clear all modifier key requirements:

    key_cheatmod_a1 = 0
    key_cheatmod_a2 = 0
    key_cheatmod_b1 = 0
    key_cheatmod_b2 = 0

    Fullscreen works in Classic, I haven't tried it in ZQuesr yet. The quest I and my friend aew putting together is srill in the planning stages and we have more work to do before we are ready to put it together in ZQ. I am running Windows 8.1 with default drivers so I couldn't tell you anything about Win 7 or orher drivers.

    UPDATE: ZQ won't open if set to fullscreen, or if the window scale us set to anything besides x1. It will still open in the original size window, however.

    Hmm. I'll need to try some config properties in ZQuest and see why it won't open in fullscreen. I'm unsure what would cause that to fail. 2x and above, of course, require that your desktop resolution is >= 2x the size of the normal window, to use 2x.

    I'm not going to reset my resolution for ZQuest.

    I should be clearer. When set to fullscreen, it doesn't exactly fail. What actually happens is that a full-sized wimdow appears, but it is completely white, stays for about three seconds, and then exits. It's like it's trying to work but can't quite do it.

    Windows 7, 8, or 10?

    Gamma 4 allowed fullscreen for me on Win 7, but did precisely what you described, on Win 10.

    Please try this build.

    I tested it on both Win and Win10, and it worked on both.

    I did mention in an earlier post that I have Windows 8.1 with the default video drivers.

    Oh, and I did edit the zc.cfg file per your suggestion and the hotkeys now wirk jyst as before. Although oressing “k” to jkill all enemies doesn’t work, but then again, it never worked before, either. ( I generally only use that on the blue Darknut infested room if I am low on health)

    Is that cheat entirely broken, or is only the hotkey broken?

    What about ZQuest in fullscreen? This build should remedy that, but I'd like confirmation.
