Updates, Updates, Updates.
Number one issue I'd like to address is that yes, the series is still being worked on. Some have expressed concern via PM or otherwise that the series has been stalled or cancelled. I would like to inform those who are interested in TD4C that the series is indeed still being worked on. However, our initial plans for the series will be undergoing major changes.
Anybody who is familiar with the road map of TD4C will recognize that there is a Hunter's Revenge 4
planned, as well as a Black Hole
and the Four Orbs
finale. However, with the direction that TD4C#8: Revelations
is going, which was originally supposed to be the Hunter's Revenge 3
remake, it is most likely apparent that Revelations
will indeed be the finale to The Devious Four Chronicles
and will most likely be the end of the series. It has always been in the D4 TeamWorks' best interest to bring a story that is different from other Super Mario World hacks out there. It may be tacky at times, yes, and it may seem a bit out there, yes. None-the-less, a different experience from all the other hacks out there.
Now, some other announcements. Work has slowed because of all the recent changes to standards, notably with the sprite_tool changes and its subsidiaries. Meanwhile, a lot of our focus has been shifted towards our Parody Project, which is Hunter and Scorpion's Bet
series, which is a very light hearted series of two hacks featuring alternate persona's of TD4C
's recognizable villains Hunter
as the player characters. Check out some of the screen shots in the latest post.
Otherwise, updates will soon be rolling out for the TD4C hacks currently listed on the site, most notably TD4C#4: Hunter's Revenge ReVised
and TD4C#6: The Fourth Sector
. These two updates aim to fix a multitude of issues that are in the two hacks, making them more stable and hopefully making them more enjoyable experiences with some difficulty nerfs. When the updates roll out, please remember to check the readmes for all changes.

Things You as the Player NEED to Know
• These hacks are story driven. There is a whole lot of story, and cut scenes are everywhere.
For those who only want to play the game: Press the "START Button" and you'll skip a majority of cut scenes in the games. Do know that not all cut scenes can be skipped. (primarily ENTER, but it's what ever you have Start addressed to on your emulator)
• If there is a bug, remember to PM me all the issues you find.
