I would just like to say: congratulations with the public release of this TC!
I know you've put quite some time and effort into it. It's good to see that you've managed to come up with a full episode to explore the world of Fate. I had a lot of fun beta testing it and I hope others will enjoy it too. Looking forward to the palette improvements,

What is exactly wrong with the sounds that you assume the author does not seem to take this effort seriously?

That to me is a weird angle to lend criticism to.

90 percent of the sounds are from the original game. This is how 1996 sounds for a small developer. :-)

This... Was an excellent experience. Felt like i went back in the past there! Weapons, enemies, destroyable objects, maps and the locked doors are very accurate to the original counterpart, although i never heard of and not even played it before. But it's all there, it's very, again, accurate!

But i must confess that the enemies are harder to beat with all the weapons available. Overall projectiles' speed and the damage output are quite weak, while enemies hurt you so bad. It slightly gets better after you get a Destroyer, but it consumes way too much ammo in a single click.

Incendiary Bow is quite fun to look at. Not sure how it works, but it just won't stop moving when it get stuck into the enemy, and then explode. And here's the funnier fact: It also affects on dead corpses, making it finicky to use.

Also are Flail balls actually worth using? It stunlocks the enemy, sure. But it must be a direct hit, and the damage output is just... Meh.

I guess those were suppose to be in the original game as well? Ow well, really neat and retrospective mod!

...dude. Don't spam, use the edit comment button. Also, it's kinda really rude of you to just declare that you are working on the mod now after criticizing the sounds and implying that you could do better with the sprites (which I seriously doubt) and start then demanding things from the actual author while the mod is still being developed. Maybe there is some sort of language barrier here or you're just young, but you're going about all of this in completely the wrong way.

dont screw up whawt i am saying..

1. i didnt say the sound was bad i just think it was strange
2. i never said i can do better... i said i can help with making the sprites better . it has nothing to do with his skill as a spriter .. for all i know he migh tbe way better then me.
3. i was unsure if i had to edit that last post or i could post it as the subjects seemed very different to me.

totally honest i am a fan of this post you didnt mention that post i did saying this mod is amazing and its a great fun game to me almost forget its doom ... if anything i wan tto contribute to the mod .. i am only a spriter i dont do code i could not do anything ... i want to contribute and make it greater ( in my eyes ) with more modern looking psrites..... but its contributing to this great mod not correcting it by any means.. in fact most people might like the retro style of the weapons styles over modern

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. The arrows from the bow are become seeking missiles when hitting their targets. Does not make much sense, mostly just for a fun effect. I agree that flail balls could do more damage / be more effective. They are not from the original game. In an update I'm going to upgrade these and the destroyer. I want it to use a different ammo type (like in the original demo). That way, more mini rockets will be available for the rocket rifle.

Thanks for you comments. I don't want to modify the original weapon sprites (fists, rocket rifle, staff, machinegun), because I want it to look like the original demo version. I think I only added frames to the rocket rifle. The other weapons could probably be Improved ( because I made the sprites :D ).
If you want a gameplay mod with only the weapons and / or enemies, Its okay if somebody wants to make that.

I think the language barrier is causing issues here, because i have literally no idea what you are trying to say here. I take it that yes you aren't saying the author didn't do hard work

This, however:

Is pretty clear cut.

what is clear cut?

fact is the sound when you press a wall is not fitting in my opinion thats as easy as it gets to explain what i meant... i never meant this is a bad mod in fact i think its one of the best mods i have played when it comes to game play

You are saying the author does not take things seriously, and you refer to the sounds as an example of it.
