This will be the last one for awhile, unless I feel the need to clean up a few things.

What's New/Fixed:
*Hitsparks added to failed grapples, telling you why it failed.
*Grapple a little bit more lenient in certain situations.
*Grapple may occasionally still reject in some edgecases, but shouldn't be an issue.
*Down terminates grapples without a jump. Useful occasionally, like that one part of 1-2.
*Drone segment in 1-1 made slightly easier. Always at least a 3 pixel shot that can hit the drone thrower.
*Map screen sending you to wrong level should be fixed.
*F2 ends a level and resets your time/deaths for speedrunning. Was in previous version but unannounced.
*F1 can bring you to or exit the key config screen on the save select screen. Good if you fuck up your keys.
*DEL on the save select screen deletes saves.
*Shoot+Jump+Claw also skips the end of act cutscene.
*Barrels can be used to kill enemies. Not particularly useful, but can work.
*Tons of little network things added for an improved online experience. Should be able to have weirder and more interesting events.
*Particles on the Charge Shot always go to the Kid
*You can "megaman jump" through Bald Bull's boss door.
*But you can't get Bald Bull out of bounds anymore by jumping back through the door

What's not fixed
*Bald Bull/Mr Sandman Glitches (Should eventually be fixed)
*Going behind Sagat(I think I'll leave this)
*Some grapple situations. Though if it rejects, it's because it was a bad shot that just barely grazed a valid surface.
*Probably tons of little things that aren't terribly important
*Some controllers still don't work. I think the input system totally rejects analog controls. In such situations, use Joy2Key.
*Some crashes. Depending on how common they are, I might make work arounds but none of them should make you lose progress.


Just press download game to download the new version. This again will be the last version in awhile, so I encourage you all to upgrade one more time.


Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy: Gaiden is ready for public consumption. Things might be a bit buggy at first, but a few revisions later and things should be all smoothed out. I'm sure you'll all live though. The bugginess is sometimes part of the charm for the IWBTG experience, right?

So what is Gaiden? Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares -- it's a 3 stage episodic bite of new IWBTG action.  What about the future of Gaiden? Hard to say. Brave Earth is going to steal my attention until it's done, so don't expect more any time soon, but I surely will add more content at some point. How big will that content be? How many episodes will their be? Who cares, I'm playing it by ear.

So what's working, what's not working and whatever?

We have...

*New stage based gameplay

*3 Stages

*Configurable Controls with Gamepad support

*Trophies (also supported through Gamejolt)

*Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)

*A new button! Z to jump, X to shoot and C to BIIIONIC AAAARM

*Z X and C to skip boss intros and cutscenes!

*Probably won't crash!

What isn't done?

*No fullscreen or resolution support.

*Probably needs a lot of optimization

*Probably has lots of bugs

*People wanna be able to fuck with people like I fucked with Floe. I might be able to come up with a way to do that in the future.

*Graphical options are basic. Sound options seem to be a little flighty.

*Some interface/menu stuff is kinda groudy and needs modification.

*Might still crash! (but unlike with MMF2, there is more I can do about it this time around.)

So if you have any problems, bare with me.

New fix for window 8.1:
Right click the game that suppose to run the game.
Properties. After the name (do not rename) put this: .exe
It should convert it to .exe and it should work. Any problems, let me know. I WILL RESPOND IF YOU REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE.

This is really fun, but I came here to tell you guys that this game does work on the Windows 8.1! I got another computer and I downloaded it, put it a folder, put it on a flash drive, played the game so that It would have the save in the folder, then put it on the computer that have windows 8.1, and then it should work! For some reason the Multimedia Fusion Application Runtime wouldn't appear on the Windows 8.1 and for that reason, it remains a file.
I hope this helped... If not, let me know.

Y'know the part of level 1-2 featured in the banner? I can't figure out how to dodge the street fighter obstacle right after that part.

I'd look up a video, but you gotta swing over Zangief. Try swinging earlier, since Chun-li can't do her attack until she's settled on the ground.

Great game still no matter how hard it may be

The game loads a crash message on startup, although the game works fine. Just thought i'd state this, as it can be a bit of an annoyance.
