I'd have no problem hosting it for you on one of my channels. I have 2 that only have unmonetized videos and no subscribers so I if it gets flagged, it doesn't matter.

Or unlist it as LO said, lol.

Glad to see you guys are giving the upgrade a try! Thanks. I'm happy to know my hard work payed off.

DarkKobold, Anytime. I figured if no one else made an actual upgrade I might as well be the one to do it! I still have all my work saved so if anything needs to be changed (Like the difficulty, monsters, or items, then I would be happy to do that.

Lord Oddeye sama, You are making great progress getting so far without dying, good luck making it the rest of the way.

Chaos Wizard, Good luck on your playthrough! Don't be too worried about spoilers on the commentary vids. In the end it's all just about having fun! :excited:

Gonna fire this up and give it a playthrough, it's been years since i've even played SITD though so i'm not expecting to do great.

I think you'll do fine. The difficulty depends a lot on how lucky you are with item drops and figuring out how to deal with the new and different monsters. The sub-bosses can be difficult, but overall it shouldn't be impossible to beat although I have no idea if anybodies actually beaten it. Let me know how you progress! :)

I finished this one today and I have to say that some parts are quite interesting.

WARNING: SPOILER!


As résumé I would say that there are some nice changes but the mod still needs some tweaking here and there to achieve a constant challenge.

Shadow of a Dragon, Cool! I hope you enjoy it. :)

zexxar, I'm glad to hear someone actually finished it! Thanks for the feedback, maybe sometime in the future I'll tweak it yet again. I already have a few things in mind I would change. It's funny cause when I made the mod I wanted to make sure it wasn't TOO hard, but in the process I actually made parts of the game too easy. Either way I had fun making it and I'll keep the difficulty in mind if I decide to tweak it again in the future.

Shit I totally forgot about this. I'm on the fourth floor at the moment in my current play through, I'll download it and do a run through after I've spanked Darksol.

I know it's a few months late to say this but I do hope your Shining in the Darkness project goes off well smoothly. I honestly am.

Shining in the Darkness was always a personal favorite of mine.

Gnagnini, For now this project is done. I've been very busy and rarely ever find the time to even visit this site anymore. However, one thing I will say is that if a working map editor ever comes out then the chances of me making yet another patch of this wonderful game will skyrocket. There would SO many things I could do to change the game! :shock:

Thanks metateen, I appreciate that. It's always been one of my favorites as well.

SaCred, Thanks for the update. I hope you make it to the end!

I'd like to give a final thanks to everyone that helped me with this project and everyone who gave it a try. It was fun and I liked hearing about your experiences with the game. Maybe someday I will tweak it yet again in the future (Especially if the editors are upgraded) but until then... Farewell :)

I did it finally, levels were about in the mid 80's to 90 and i must say, very fun and addictive :)
Hope you will make a new mod in the future. GG
