Please follow the install instruction below in the Install Intructions section. For the love of god, follow it.
Did you know, that true legends never really, dies. Infact,
quite the opposite. Some legends might be forgotten to many,
but for some, the strength of such things,
can turn the tide, of a dying world.
I will tell, you a story, of a man who once gave happiness,
to a sad people in the old days. His songs, gave the people
not only happiness and joy, but also tears.
his talents as an artist, is not forgotten, only hidden.
In a world called Eiruka, is where he lives now. Eiruka,
is a world ruled by Hysketon, by harsh laws and brutality.
So where did he aquire such power? Nobody really knows, nobody, remembers.
But it is a fact, that, when Eiruka is ruled by this tyrant, there is no peace.
Many rumors, says that Hysketon, will reopen,
old gates that was built, by an ancient alien species,
called The Progenitors. While many claim such thing as a urban myth,
one man, will soon find out, that such myths, can be true.
To install this game, you need to follow the instructions that is provided
within the PNG image file inside the rar file as the font used for the installer doesnt exist and
also, to make the font work correctly ingame, and any possible error message.
Now the basics, installing.
Run the Setup. Now, you may notice that the installer's texts are all weird.
That is normal. If you are running Windows 98, then what the hell man?
But hey, if you do, chances are that the texts are normal, but beyond that,
such as on Windows Vista, 7 8 and 10, the texts are all weird.
Now, check the Install Instruction.PNG file for help, it will help to explain things.
Now, install the game as you see fit.
Once that is done, its important to follow this step for making teh ingame texts to look
there are 4 files within the Fonts rar file here www.dropbox.com/s/hrbsj4d85dtj…
You absolutly need this!
All these are font files. They are originaly part of Windows 98 font files.
When you first installed the tools or the game itself, it would copy these files but since
how different the fonts system was, it cant find them.
So to fix the problem, copy these 4 files into the Fonts folder of your comptuer.
You can find it by going to the Controll Panel and Fonts sould be there.
This might be called differently depending on the languadge, but it can be found
in the Controll Panel.
Now that is done, you are all set right? Perhaps.
If you start teh game and it says that harmony.DLL is missing, thats becasue it is.
For wahtever reason, it doesnt copy the harmony.DLL file, even if i include into the
game folder itself where it belongs.
If this message appears, you can manualy copy the file and take it to the
game folder. Once done, you sould be good to go!
If got any problems, may it be ingame or technical, please do ask and i do my best
to answer them!
I created this game for an classmate of mine more than 10 years ago. It all began near the
end of the school day. My classmate loved Eddie Meduza alot and loved his songs.
As i got more and more skilled with game development, i thought of making
a game based on eddie meduza for him.
This is where things got interesting. The development began and i told him i be
making a game for him about eddie meduza, in wich he loves the idea.
I had 3 years as a deadline to finish the game, so day and night, around 5 or 7
hours a day i was working on the game. Half of the problem of getting the game
ready was that i didnt knew how to use the game making program to its fullest,
so the development went a differnt direction and i took lazy shortcuts.
I had alot of plans and ideas for the game, but i couldnt finish them in time
to complete the game due to the 3 year deadline. As the game was around 76%
done, the last school year was at hand.
At that point, only half of the dialogs was written, and all of the battles
where far to difficult for a casual gamer to handle.
Half way through the school year, things got alot more complicated.
all of the .wav files in the music folder was around 2 gb in total, and
back then DVDs wherent widely used in my school, so i had to cut most
of the songs away. Movie files with cutscenes where planned but scrapped due
to size problems.
When the game was very near completion, the worst possible thing happened.
As i was working around the game to fix some of the final bugs, the external
HHD that i kept the game in, crashed. To my horrors, not only did i wasted 3 years
of work, but also, i couldnt forfill a promise i made.
That was 10 years ago. Around 2010, i found the old external hdd laying around collecting
dust. To my curiosity, i just took the USB cables and hook it up just to see what would
happened, then, to my suprise, my Windows 7 did some strange things to the HDD, and then,
it ran perfectly.
All files that was in it that was stored back in 2003, was there, intact, untoched since
10 years ago. I checked around all the files it had, and around the rubble of files, i found
the old Eddie Meduza project. I installed my old game making program and opened the game, but
the game was a total mess. Whatever i did back then was horrible.
There was no even trigger scripts, there where no balance in gameplay, no side quests or
anything. Alot of things where unfinished and many of the features such as the
gladiator arena, was so glitched it crashes the game, and around a specific point in the
game, you couldnt continue due to a bug.
As i was looking around the project, i thought to myself, why not rewamp and release
this old game to the public? And so it began. I began to translate the game and
fixed everything that was broken. I began to add things i originaly planned to have in
the past. I began to expand and rewamp all of the areas in the game and made them
more detailed. I added more NPCs that could talk and more.
I also balanced all the battles, remade some of the scenes in the game, and
fixed all the game breaking bugs.
And this is where it ends. Finaly after 10 years in development hell, its finaly
done. I wished i could have finsihed it in the past, but then again, i probably wouldnt
had released it to the public either if that was the case.
Eddie Meduza was an incredibly creative artist who deserves to be remembered, and this
game, showed my dedication to honor him, and to all his fans out there.
