    The Lone Wolf DS project has received an update with the release of book 3. For more information about the project please check the link below. The developer is looking to compile a Flash Kit compatibility listing. If the homebrew works for you please report what Flash Kit and firmware you are using.



    Thanks to Vato via IRC for the news!​

    Awesome, simply awesome!

    The first 2 books were great, and even though the above says there were many bugs and misspellings, I did not notice them.

    Cheers!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow. I never knew they even had these to be honest. But looking from the original homepages, it looks well thought out. I will probably try it out when I have the time. Also thanks

    i own the full series in paper back. i picked them up when i was a kid. i found a few at a $1 used book store. this is a great project but one that is not fully bug free. its sort of sad because the bugs are usually typos, incorrectly lined up text, etc. there are some actual software bugs like the mini-games, gold not being displayed correctly, etc. you would think with a static "book" project that there would be no bugs at all. even with the occasional bug the games are very enjoyable. as with the original book you can transfer your save (character sheet) to the new book and thus build your character up over time.

    my favorite thing about these is that they are great before bed. they don't engage your mind like a game does and the back ground music helps to make me sleepy.

    Oh, awesome. I was just thinking a few weeks ago "I wonder if he's planning on doing more of the books?"

    Hi,

    Thanks for writing the news and all the kind words! [​IMG]

    @another_world: what linker do you have please? Because I was never told such bugs were existing, and many people tested the game. Also some bugs were corrected with later releases, did you try them? Anyway, if you know some bugs that can be reproduced, it would be very nice to tell me, I'll be happy to fix them! [​IMG]

    Cheers
    Frédéric

    Ho BTW, you may have missed this in my original post here, but please, don't host the ROM on another site than Project Aon. This request is related to the Project Aon license agreement. Indeed, Joe Dever (the books author) accepted to provide his copyrighted material for free use, but only to the condition that all the things using his work are hosted in a central place (which is the Project Aon site).

    So I'm not asking this for any personal reason, but just because I promised to respect this license when I began to work with the Project Aon people.

    Please, could you remove the file, and change the download link to my own download page instead (http://www.projectaon.org/staff/frederic/downloads.php) ? Next time I release a book, I'll try to make this mandatory point clearer (using bold and red [​IMG]).

    Thank you very much! [​IMG]

    this is definitely an amazing and fun adventure book. I just wish you could some how add your stats and content onto the other book, rather then make a new kai every time.

    hopefully this will be updated with those features.

    deff. a 10/10 experience as homebrew. ^^

    used a dstwo fyi

    m3 lite, r4, ak2, ak2.1, ak2i, scds2, ak rpg, m3 real, and others i've loaned out to friends =P. i submitted a bug report to you awhile back but never heard back. right now i'm in the middle of a very busy time in real life, when things settle down i will play through the first 2 books and take detailed notes. i would love to eventually see all of the books on the ds and look forward to helping out this project.

    i have changed the first post to point to your download page instead. i will link to your downloads from now on.

    I half-way thought it was dropped before this.
    They're pretty interesting.

    Thank you, much appreciated [​IMG]

    I take every bug report into account, so I suppose I checked yours thoroughly, and updated the engine accordingly. So maybe some of the bugs are already fixed, else I'm sure your help will be really precious to me.

    Cheers!

    Hi, you can use your character from one book to the other. To do that, you have to save your game at the end of one book. When you start the next book, it should offer you to continue from your previous adventure.

    Have fun!

    On an R4 with the latest official firmware (which, admittedly, is quite old...) and the latest YWG, you could move the data when the book specifically asks if you want to save at the very end of each book. I never renamed the file, so that may make a difference.

    -----

    In other news, has anybody else had problems loading Caverns of Kalte with a YWG R4? I can rotate the book to left-handed, but when it comes to starting it up, it just fades to black and doesn't come up.

    Did some testing, and outta my cards, the Caverns_Of_Kalte is only working loading on my R4 (running Wood).

    when i try to load it on my AK2, akRPG (both NAND and SD), and my DSTWO, it actually shuts my DSL off.

    the r4 is using a 2gig, while the RPG and DSTWO are both using the same 8gig, though i dont think its SD related, cuz the game shuts down on NAND, too.

    the first two games load up fine for me.



    edit: on my R4 it black screens after the initial start-up screen
