❤ DONTFORGET - May 2024 Mini Status Update ❤

(Read inside for the latest information on v2.8.0's development, the changelog for the new v2.7.9c patch, and some thoughts on DF's eighth anniversary!)


Howdy, everyone!

Welcome to the May 2024 Mini Status Update!

Following the release of our first "mini" post back in March, it seems that you guys liked the idea of having these smaller posts in-between the bigger Progress Reports, so we're going to keep doing these every so often!

In this mini post, I'd like to share some information with you on how v2.8.0 has been progressing, as well as to announce the release of a new patch for the game (v2.7.9c), and to share some thoughts on DF's eighth anniversary!

That's right, DONTFORGET has officially turned eight years old! Before we get into the status update, I'd just like to say a few things first!


Thoughts on the Eighth Anniversary

Today, DONTFORGET has turned eight years old.

When I first started this project back in 2016, I was still a high school student. Now, I'm a university graduate! I never would have imagined that I'd still be working on this project eight years after I started it, and I'm very appreciative to have the opportunity to do so.

Thank you all so much for being a part of this community. Whether you've been here since the start, or have joined us more recently, I'm very thankful that you're here. You guys have made working on this game a lot of fun, and have encouraged me to keep going!

Because of this project, I've been very fortunate to be able to meet some of my closest friends, and work with incredibly talented people. I'm honored to be able to work with everyone on the DF team; all of the artists, composers, voice actors, programmers, and online admins. This game would simply not exist without you all, so thank you for joining me on this journey.

Looking ahead, there's a lot to look forward to! With the release of v2.9.0 at the end of this year, the development of DF's online multiplayer will be officially completed! After that, we'll be focusing our efforts on finishing the singleplayer Story Mode! We'll be releasing the Story Mode in sections, or "entries" as we'll call them, starting in v3.0.0! I've been thinking about this story for a long time, so I'm really excited to get to work on it!

I'm not sure exactly how much longer DONTFORGET will be in development for, but I'm committed to seeing this project through to its completion. Until then, thank you all so much for being here.

Now then, let's talk about v2.8.0 for a bit!


Status Update on DF CONNECTED v2.8.0

Since our previous progress report last month, we've largely been focusing on further implementation of the new party member system.

It's been coming along very well, and soon enough, all party members and their spells will be fully implemented!

Outside of that, we've got a few things in the pipeline at the moment, such as an updated shop system where you can buy equipment and sell your items, but I want to wait until these features are further along before we show them off to you. Rest assured, more announcements are yet to come!

With that said, I'd like to update you all on our release plans for v2.8.0.

Next month, I will be traveling away from home to visit my family for a few weeks. I won't be able to bring my computer with me, but I will be bringing my laptop, so I can continue to work on the game!

With that said, I will confirm beforehand that v2.8.0 will not be able to release in June while I'm away. I apologize for this, but I'll be sure to continue updating you all on the game's progress in the meantime.

I'd like to thank you all again for your continued patience with this update. I know that the wait for 2.8 has been long, and so I hope that the release of v2.7.9 last week has helped a little with the wait.

Speaking of v2.7.9, I'd like to announce that a new patch for the game, v2.7.9c, has just released today!


Changelog for DF CONNECTED v2.7.9c

A new patch for DF CONNECTED, v2.7.9c, has released!

This is a small patch for the game which includes a set of two new costumes, the return of an iconic area from DF Classic, quality-of-life improvements, and some fixes!

Check out the full changelog:

  • Added RG01 and RG02 as costumes for Undyne.

  • Added the ability to toggle your partner's costume on the mobile port using the STAT menu.

  • Added the Flower Village from DF Classic in Lost World 2.

  • Added an overworld corruption battle for Chara.

  • The PvP list now uses colored text to make it more readable.

  • The pacifist requirement to unlock the vending machines has been lowered to 750.

  • The badge tiers for the Mercy Badge have been adjusted to correlate with the updated pacifist route requirements: 750 spares for bronze, 2000 spares for gold, and 5000 spares for diamond.

  • There is now a 100% flee rate against LOST enemies after reaching LV 20 or 750 spares. However, all present enemies must be LOST for it to work.

  • The bonus healing granted by the Hearts Donut for pacifists/neutrals is now enabled at 750 spares rather than 2000 spares.

  • If you get a perfect hit (i.e. hitting all reticles in the center) when FIGHTing, you will now get an additional 4% TP as a bonus.

  • Fixed an issue that allowed cheaters to crash other users using local chat.

  • Fixed a visual bug where boxes would not display item names on the mobile version.

It's not a huge patch, but it should help to ensure that you all have the best possible experience with 2.7 while you continue to wait for 2.8.

Thank you all so much for playing!


Conclusion

Well, that's all for now!

Now that v2.7.9 is all finished, I'll be returning to work exclusively on v2.8.0. I hope to be able to share some more progress with you very soon!

I know I've said "thank you" a lot in this post already lol, but thank you for reading, and as always, stay determined!
