This is much more playable than the previous versions of colors.
Their are a few minor bugs like the music not being able to be adjusted after a battle, and the battle music being just a little to loud, however I'm not sure if that's because I somehow went into a house as I was being sucked into a battle or not.
I like that I can adjust the volume of the object tones independently of other sounds as well.
Still not quite sure on how this battle system is supposed to work fully yet, but their is promise, especially as I can now have a battle and know what's going on, though their are way to many blank lines of text in between each action.
Also, does the info layout setting change what keys are used to provide stat info?
I couldn't get either the stats option in the battle menu or the number keys to work, but maybe I'm not doing something correctly.
Still, if this is a pre alpha, I can't wait to see what an alpha, or even a beta, is going to be like.
And, just because I'm curious, is this still in game maker, or some other environment?
