Had some fun, playing around with Zoria's game_over_menus.zh, during the last weeks.
I decided to use a modified version for A Fairytale Princess, too.
(like I also made for my other current projects, Memories of the Future and Little Hero)
...but for AFP, I wanted to create a unique look for the Game Over screen.

btw
On Death, the Game Over screen only offers the option to "RETRY", "CONTINUE" or "OUIT"

AFP will use a save system based on Games like TERRANIGMA.
Saving will only be possible via dialogue branches at specific save points
(diaries in hotel roomes, mystical owl staues like in MM, etc.).
I wanted to add a lil' "survival flair" by these modifications.

I use Moosh's Dialogue Branch Add On, calling a simple save/save quit ffc script, for the save points.

Thank you, very much.
I know, I'm a bit slow and need much time for this one single project.
...but this is because I make a lot of backward changes, everytime I learn something new.
When I started this project (my very first one), I knew almost NOTHING about the usage of ZC/ZQ.

I know nothing of this Terranigma game, but I do like the idea, having encounter similar things in other games (i.e. only being able to save at bird statues in Skyward Sword. Very impressive.

Thank you.
I just loved the idea to skip the classic F6/onDeath function in favor of fixed save points that add some survival feeling,
while keeping the standard continue setting (instead of instand respawning).
