Yes its that time to become damaged by invisible potion throwing enemies, open the door and come face first to a pack of nerve breathing hounds, yell at your enemies until they shatter, violently garden enemies to death, get a body pillow of a god, and have a picnic.

>The game
volafile.org/r/HF33Go
1.72 is the most recent version of elona+. Elona is a game made by some jap named Noa. Elona plus is a mod of that game made by Ano.

Elona custom
volafile.org/r/HF33Go
This brings about some quality of life changes and general improvements to the game as well as letting you customize things like pet AI, highly recommended. I believe you just extract the game to the elona main folder and launch from the coffee cup icon. Made by some qt named annabannana and more recently taking up the torch a guy named bloodyshade.

what the fuck is this
A jap roguelike with an overworld and no permadeath. Can be played a ton of different ways like being a farmer who grows magic items as well as veggies, a piano player, and there's some new necromancy shit that was added. There is a ton of shit to do in the game.
Can be a bit grind heavy once you get settled though. Join in on the fun!

I'll be dumping info that has been collected during the threads that has been super handy, props to the anons whose posts have been capped, you make you little girl proud.

so you get get 4 pets to start, a cat, dog, bear, or little girl.

1.72 is the most recent version of elona+.
1.73 is out now:
volafile.org/get/mi6k10r7d686/elonaplus1.73.zip
volafile.org/get/mi7UlwmPd7qc/ElonaCustom 1.73.1.7z
Pets can now use shift cores on their own (if you're not familiar with those, it's basically Power Rangers-style transformation), and it's possible to give them dialogue for using them via talk file. (You have to manually use a shift core on them to customize their transformed name/sprite/profile, though.)

Those are documented here:

So how do you start playing properly, without getting beaten up by random overpowered creepy monsters in starting areas, getting packs of hardly curable diseases from mana fallouts, eating all shit you find in the dirt and selling your vomit? Should I just grind my way through it somehow?

Keep at it mang.

1. Try to keep out of fights early on, and always keep a teleport handy. (You might want the Dimensional Move feat.)
2. The Etherwind only happens during months divisible by 3. If one of those is approaching, get to a town before the new month starts and don't stray too far away from the innkeeper.
3. Find a cooking tool (elona.wikia.com/wiki/Cooking#Cooking_Tools) and use a scroll of inferior material to turn it into paper so it weighs less.

Never played before so I downloaded and thought I'd give it a try. Downloaded both the game zip and the Elona Custom zip, extracted them both to the same folder, then launched the coffee cup icon. Wanted me to make a text document titled "error", so I did, then it worked when I launched it again. But after character creation, the game crashes and says "Error #1". Can't find any info online about a crash like this besides crashes on older versions, where the solution was to update to a newer version. Any help on what the problem could be would be greatly appreciated.

William Foster

Try ruining in compatibility mode for windows 7. I'm assuming you extracted elona first and not custom?
Also try making a character first but the problem is probably the compatibility issue. I had problems when I tried to run the most recent version.

Hunter Young

Yes, I extracted Elona first. Anyway, just tried your suggestion, ran through character selection quickly to see if it would work– and it did. Thanks for the help friend, not sure why this problem occurred, but at least now I can play the game.

Reminder to give trick-or-treaters what they want or they'll firebomb your house.

When you get your first wish, consider getting Seven League Boots, which lets you travel much faster on overworld. Any escort/delivery quest will be significantly easier and will be a decent way to get ok-tier equipment, gold, and platinum. Just avoid the "girlfriend" ones or you'll get fucked.

John Campbell

get gardening fast for sick learning gains
Basically, the more learning you have the better spells you can get and more points you have to spend on skills later. I recommend also not going to vernis untill you can kill starter guides at your home (the go off after you visit vernis).
What i do when start new char (no heir deeds required, but they help if you make a gene) is to go to start as farmer, get mad dosh, buy nuke in derphy (it costs something like 12k IIRC) and blow it in your house. you get mad dagger and bow from each of guides.

From my experience, it really doesn't matter what pet you get especially if you're using custom, except for maybe the Exile and some of the other gods' pets.

Isaac Taylor
Isaac Taylor

Exile is worth keeping or should i tell him to go away?

Isaiah Howard
Isaiah Howard

Exile is great, it has innate float and I think can see invisible enemies. It's default ai pattern allows it to shoot multiple darts in one turn at enemies.
Also definitely keep your fire dragon child and evolve it all the way. It has the boost ability that greatly increases its speed and strength, which not many other creatures have.

You picked the best time to start, it's easier than ever to make a new character in Elona. I started back when it cost 50 plats to learn a new skill. Now you get a free skill token every level up that you can give to a trainer for free skill lessons.
First tip, get thelittle girl which is objectively the best pet.
Second tip, your little girl is probably wielding a heavy sword and a shield, take off the shield and the little girl stops getting penalties to the heavy weapon. This turns her into a killing machine.
Third tip, gardening is the easiest eay to make plats.

Aaron Martinez

If you are comparatively very high level and want to uplift a lower pet, secure pets of your level via capturing/breeding/slave trader/horse merchant and gene engineer them as donors.

Otherwise gene engineer on them as many skills from the slave trader as possible, as every skill they train is exp they get
Give them ores (even better if you can pot of fusion them into brilliant ores first) so their potential rises

The easiest god heart is from the doggod in the forest of doggod. You'll probably need to be fairly high level to beat him though. Don't even bother trying for Siva the Destruction, that bitch will mince you before she even appears on screen.

Once you are comfortable fighting in level 200+ dungeons you can get God Hearts from god race enemies. Stag God does not drop them, but Atlas, Element Dragon, Five head god all drop them fairly frequently. You can savescum the drops if you want.

You also get several God Hearts while clearing the story dungeon in act 3.

These boots are so trash, as a matter of fact, that I'm going to inter them in my museum as the worst goddamn Godly in existence. I wish I could charge NPCs money to see how fucking shit these boots are.
I groaned when I saw maintains luck/speed.
My face twitched when I saw the NPC-unfriendly jeweler/fisher/carpenter skills.
The moment I saw the dual wield/two hand/shield boosts, I wanted to shit in my chair in anger.
The minor fire resist, mining, and signals from god are just insult to injury.
If I were a level 1, I would not equip these boots if my life depended on it.
That is how much I hate this RNG abomination.

Teach your pet tailoring or carpentry. If they like you, they'll make some decent armor every time you go to sleep. You can also repeat the little sister quest to get Happy Apples to increase luck, provided you've seen one before. Don't worry about it though, most of your equipment will probably be the unique artifacts ones later on anyway.

The farm already divides the tiles for you, like some have horizontal lines and other vertical. Gardening is the shit, man. With Kumiromi statues, Kumiromi scissors and high gardening, maintaining an herb farm is easy.

Good thing I googled.
Just a warning that a bug in the code sets tobacco dependence to 9999 upon any single use of tobacco, cigarette, hamaki, tobacco pipe and kiseru. This overrides much of the related code, including the ability to reduce dependence by enhanced tobacco.
WOW BUGGED SMOKE MECHANICS
Fix it in EloSnack: Load cdata.s1; tobacco dependence is located at 1768. Change the value from 9999 to 0 to remove dependence. Note: if you currently have the Distracted debuff, it'll still be there, but once it's over, it will not be applied again - unless you try another tobacco item.

Brayden Phillips

Why is the itemisation in this game so terrible? I've been using the same Precious artifacts ever since I was halfway through completing the Act 1 Main Quest, bar a couple of more recent upgrades like the Mournblade and Assault Gold. I'm not tempted to swap any of it out for some generic armor that gives an increasingly-insignificant boost to my gardening and dual wield.

And the new precious items added in Elona+ all seem so underwhelming. With the possible exception of the War Suit, which is half-decent, what am I meant to be looking forward to using? Everything just feels so interchangeable and bland. 'Oh, great, fear resistance, because I'd totally been playing up to Act 3 without coming across that sooner'.

Even at the ultimate high-end, the god weapons seem to be ruined by having a ridiculous to-hit malus.

I love Elona, but fuck, itemisation and upgrading your loot is normally the best part of any RPG and in this game it's a dud.

It's certainly much stronger late-game but shift cores are nice to have. Unless there's a feat you want (wish for "miromi") I say go for it.

If you think you can handle any boss-level mob in Act 1, sure. Otherwise it's just a waste of equipment

Im getting closer to the bottom of lesmias. This is the furthest I've been. I have 2 pets so far, little grill and the goose god pet, I plan of wafing the android pet once I switch out of big sis god who I will feel really bad about.

Enjoy the 10,000 PV and speed penalty when you switch a god just like am doing myself.
Recently I stopped worship Mani (I waited until November in game to obtain his final gift) for Lulwy just to get her black angel and the ether bow for my bell. I am planing on staying with the goddess of harvest for good for the stamina bonuses to spam violent garden and zero shot on everyone.

Anything I need to know about the final battle in lesmas?

Caleb Jones

10,000 turn speed and pv penalty. Doesn't really damage you that much, it's like a 10-30% reduction. Just stick to slightly lower level dungeons until it's over, or rely on your pets more. As a magic user it didn't hurt me that much because all I did was buff myself and heal pets and have super accuracy magic that one shots things at my level.

Wyatt Sanders

Sorry for not pointing that turn part.

I got rid of the punishment hex in half a month ingame while my pets watched my back, it slows you down when you have no more than 150 speed but it was nothing to worry about it.

I hadn't played elona for awhile, I finally saw this custom AI stuff. This is so great, my pets are actually useful as fuck throwing out buffs, heals and debuffs. Before I was always worrying about a rare spawn fucking up all my suicidal pets.
I don't even want to fight myself, I just want to make cool synergistic AIs for pet teams.

Lucas Myers

Yeah it's really nice though I think being able to teach pets abilities is rather overpowered. For some reason I get the magic equip buff when the Exile casts it so I have it on all the time without needing to spend any sp. I'd imagine the same applies to Super Armor.

Yeah especially now that cutscenes are added and translated with custom.
Also holy shit that's a nice looking house. Wish I had the autism and creativity to make one. If only Moongates were still around so I could borrow some designs. Or get fucking insta-killed or have to exit the game because the monster has seemingly infinite turns
Rest in peace Elochat, it still hurts

Jason Howard

Thanks mate. Wish I had the autism to get my skill potentials back up with cooking and food but all I ever really did in Elona was grind the hard and dumb way (props to me being a dumbass) by killing mobs. My stats have been overbuffed with blessed potions of restoration for ages now.

Elochat was too good and pure for this world. Rip fucking moongates. so many good times exploring them as a total noob in 2009 and being completely confused as to what the fuck was going on.

that's a dank ring. how do you gets rings to +15? I've got a living weapon that's +14. can you do that with artifact fusion or something?

Mason Richardson
Mason Richardson

New feature. Picking up duplicate precious items turn it into stardust, which levels up items by 1 up to 15.
The spell enhancement is from artifact fusion though.

Christopher Murphy

Isn't it wasting space to check all these statuses and buffs multiple times? I assumed it just went down through the list, executed the first valid condition, then started from the top again? You wouldn't make it to the buff checks further down if the buff wasn't on in the first place.

I don't know if the custom AI gets updated anymore, cause I've had a few things I wanted to do but wouldn't be reliable to use for their AI. First problem was making a healbot who would run to allies at low hp. The only check they can do is for 'Ally'. I assume they can't remember which ally they've been running to save every time the logic is checked. So if 2 low hp allies are far apart, they could end up running back and forth trying to get to both of them at once. If I had a bunch of slots for logic I guess I could manually check ally distance and HP over and over ensuring the closest weak ally always gets checked first but that's kinda overkill.
Second problem was dealing with enemy resistances, maybe their attack doesn't work but there's no way for them to check it. Especially problematic if I want them to keep using debuffs like insult until the target has been effected by it. If the target cant be dimmed they will endlessly insult it until they get very tired, I don't know if pets get tired though? Still fun to play with though, might've been a decent bandaid fix if there was some kind of OnTarget 1 time only logic you could use to just kinda probe the enemy with debuffs regardless of whether it works. At least using my defender for party healing has a lot of wiggle room thanks to healing rain AoE.

Mason Richardson

Isn't it wasting space to check all these statuses and buffs multiple times?
Yeah I actually wasn't sure if the game executed them sequentially when I first tested this.
Thought it didn't because I could've sworn I saw my pet attack before it buffed/debuffed. It's set up like this so that it forces it to apply buffs from longest duration to shortest.
I'm starting to think it is sequential because my Exile never heals when an ally is dying because there are enemies to target, and it seems scripts only run when in combat.
Might have to clean up that mess after all.

they could end up running back and forth trying to get to both of them at once
That's exactly why I have a pet use Heal Rain only if an ally is within a certain distance.
I have Call Familiar hotkeyed so if I notice a pet dying, I quickly recall and resummon when near a pet with Heal Rain.
Waste of player turns but it's the best solution I could find without having the pet's AI occasionally shit itself.
I also have a melee-fighting healer and since they all shadow step to the same enemy, coverage usually isn't a problem except that its casting skill is kinda shit compared to the Exile.
Wonder if the "preserve target entity" would fix the targeting issue.

If the target cant be dimmed they will endlessly insult it until they get very tired, I don't know if pets get tired though?
Yeah that's rough. It's why I stick to the magical debuffs.
While special enemies have a chance to resist it, it's guaranteed to work eventually.
Also fairly certain pets don't spend sp when using abilities. All of mine are shadow stepping all over the place constantly even after its sp-cost nerf.

How the hell do I teach my pets skills anyway? I haven't fucked with the AI stuff but I probably should mess with it at some point.

Caleb Rodriguez

Talk to your pet, select "other", "customize AI", "Teach". There's a stat requirement for your pet to learn certain abilities but I forget what it is.
Abilities and spells have a governing attribute, so if you don't see the spell/ability in the teach menu, your pet's corresponding attribute is too low.
The abilities aren't learned instantly and the menu shows you its progress. Cast chance is equal to Current Progress.
If the pet successfully uses an ability, progress increases. If it fails, there is a small chance progress increases.
You'll see a message about your pet "not knowing how to respond to the situation" if a pet tries to cast and fails,
but you'll also see that message if there's an error in your AI script so be careful.

the best part is the minor fire resist, the only thing close to being a useful stat, is just from the base material

So the thing on the wiki about learning Charge Attack after levelling up with 120+ Constitution seems to be bullshit. I'm about to make my final descent down to kill Meshera Alpha (gonna Astral Light Pen her first though), but I don't have 1000 AP to buy Charge Attack and I don't think I'll be able to beat her Super Regene without it.

Is there much point even moving to Act III at this point, anyway? I get the impression it's half-finished at best, and Act II was already lacklustre enough compared to the first one.

Replace files in your graphics folder.
Just make sure that it's filename is the same otherwise you will brick your game.
Also make backup of original graphics folder just in case.
