[T][AU]Shattered Glass ○★○○○ (Case 0 Teaser available) 

Message par TheDoctor » Sam Oct 26, 2013 6:21 am

Obligatory Disclaimer: This trial contains a crapload of stuff that was neither designed nor composed by me. I would like to thank the people at Capcom for creating the original artwork/music, and some of the people at Ace Attorney Online and Court-Records for some of the edited artwork.

This case is now featured!


The world we live in is filled with contradictions. However, some worlds only exist to contradict our own. In a world where prosecutors and defense attorneys are now on opposite sides of the courtroom, is it still possible for the truth to prevail?

It must be possible, for if not... Then what is the point to our existence?

Notes:
  • Pay attention to the sound and image loading bar as you start the case. Green means it's loaded, grey means it's loading, and reddish brown means part of it won't load at all. If you get reddish brown in either loading bar, please refresh the page. I'm not concerned with bandwidth issues; however, some trial writers are, so please be polite and make sure they don't have a warning on their trial page to avoid refreshing before you do that on someone else's trial.

  • Safari supports APNG now, but SVG fades do not work, so if you want the full experience, Firefox is required.
  • If you would like to play this in Chrome, follow the instructions in the spoiler below...
    Spoiler : Chrome instructions :
    You'll need to go to this link to download the APNG extension in order for some of the custom graphics to display correctly (You may have to check the "allow access to file URLs" option in settings, though. Not sure). Firefox and now Safari natively support APNGs, so no additional addons are required for those browsers. That said, Firefox is the only browser I know for sure will properly support the svg fades. Chrome currently does not, so if you want the full experience, Firefox is the best option

Shattered Glass: Turnabout Reversal is an alternate universe Ace Attorney game. Miles Edgeworth is a defense attorney, but he's not the only person whose role is reversed in this game. Expect surprises with a hint of familiarity.

(P.S. Turnabout Reversal is to be the start of a new series, so Case 1 difficulty is to be expected).

Since I playtested this and I'm helping you with the minor detail, I can vouch for the story's quality. It brings an original spin on AA.

Message par Enthalpy » Lun Oct 28, 2013 3:50 pm

I finished the beta, and for a first-time case, this is extremely good. You have a solid grasp of the basics, from spelling and most presentation aspects to making a case with no massive logical leaps in the story. Bugs, spelling errors, and "Ace Attorney-ness" are fine. I never had issues figuring out what you were trying to say, the contradictions were simple but workable, or with illogic in the story, nor did things ever feel really off. Again, this is exceptional for a first trial, and I commend you for it.

That said, there still are some areas where improvement is necessary. While you have a firm understanding of fundamentals, I think you can (and should) go a bit further in developing the story or the mystery. From the story perspective, we don't know all that much about any of the characters involved here except the very basics. The personalities also seem thin and not particularly developed. This, combined with the similarities to 1-1, make the case somewhat uninteresting. (I'd also like to add that there are some pacing issues that I think would be helped if you more fleshed out the story beyond the trial itself.) In terms of mystery, although the contradictions themselves are fine, this lacks the feel that the defendant is in a tough spot, the feel of intensity. I would like to again note that most writers have problems with the fundamentals at this stage, and it is not expected as a new player that you will have done all these things, although they are all very important things to do.

If you want the summarized version, this is a very strong first step, but I feel that you are able to make something even stronger, and I would encourage you to do so.

Thank you both for your feedback. I appreciate it.

Regarding Enthalpy's comments, more of the backstory/mystery will be fleshed out in part 2, but I'll see what more I can do in part 1 as well. :)

Legal double post:

Made a few adjustments to the trial.

First, I updated the timing on the majority of the dialogue. I also added in a little extra dialogue to help fix some of what Enthalpy was talking about. I also realized that it was never once explained what to do in case of a contradiction, so I fixed that to make it more accessible to new players.

Added some some credits and a titlescreen to the opening sequence.

Finally, I updated a good chunk of Edgeworth's sprites. I'm using some of Sligneris' sprites instead of/in addition to what I already have. (haven't made too much use of the new poses yet. That will come later.

EDIT: I also just moved von Karma's co-council sprites over to the right a bit, so now it looks more natural.

Made a slight, but important edit...

Spoiler : :
I realized the prosecution's case against your client was kind of weak, so I bolstered it by making the murder weapon solid gold. Now there was something that the defendant would have obviously stolen assuming he did it.

Thoughts!

Spoiler : :
This was an excellent trial... Congratulations in order for producing an excellent case when this is your first-time trial developing. It's disheartening to say it, but the standards for first-time trials, while they have improved by leaps and bounds thanks to the variety of detailed tutorials available now, many members still hold to preconceived perceptions about first-time trials. I should know, considering my first trial I ever developed was quickly shuffled under the rug by pretending it was a 'demo'. But Turnabout Reversal...? It has all the makings of a trial author who has taken all of the trial developing advice on board. And the result is a fun trial with an interesting premise that leaves us hanging for more. :wink:

Making AU cases is always fun. There is so much potential by flipping character roles around, changing personalities and turning canon on top of its head. Defense Attorney!Edgeworth is the perfect premise, one a number of authors have tried to do before, but never really got anywhere with it. That's why I'm pretty excited this case was a success. I hope it means you're planning to stick around further in the community and keep on developing. There's significant potential, and I can't wait to see where you go with it... The problem is trying to anticipate what might be coming around the corner next. Considering how much flexibility you have, anything could happen!

I thought the trial adapted 1-1's premise rather well, and added some interesting twists to it. 1-1 isn't the most exciting of cases, so the length of the case was just right. Characterisation was spot-on and the humour in the dialogue was well wrote. I enjoyed the slight jabs at the community with Von Karma's dismissal of Super Objections. He'd probably have a coronary if Edgeworth asked him about Supra-Objections... although it'd be a great scene. I also liked the 'Present Evidence - Fail' conversations that reused some of Edgeworth's classic lines from the Ace Attorney games, namely the 'Verily, Ergo' failure conversation. Those lines are always great, and I love how Edgeworth doesn't beat around the bush and admits he had nothing. The idea of 'meta-contradictions' also had me cracking up. :XD:

Thought Route was also a welcome addition to the case. It didn't feel particularly forced. The 'testimony graphics', centering of texts and proper text colours (orange) were also welcome additions. When I used to review trials, I was known for saying that sound, flash and shake effects are the bread and butter of trial authors. Flash and shake effects were noticeable, so that's good. I thought there could have been a couple more sound effects, particularly when the witnesses are shocked or 'damaged', or when Edgeworth shouts with the zoom background and the scrolling lines. The custom musics were also well chosen.


In a word... Approved. :wink:

(Oh, and you have a fantastic username!)
