IMPORTANT: This is a rather different version of Chapter 2!
The original was released in 2007, but this version was uploaded in 2010. It's basically a 'remake' in many ways, though the plot and events are generally the same.

Unfortunately, your saves from the old version won't work due to the drastic differences behind the scenes, but there are enough differences, I hope, to make replaying worthwhile. Any saves you make in this version can carry over to later chapters properly.

EDIT (21st of August 2010): Sorry, there'd been bugs with this version for a long time! It's because I fixed the bugs on Kongregate and updated the version there, but didn't do so here... Now I have though, so hopefully all problems will be fixed.

Oh, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have an appropriate Flash Player version! There's a screen at the start that warns you if your version is outdated. If this screen appears *at all*, then you may (probably will) experience some bizarre saving problems. Updating your Flash Player prevents them.

Impressive.

You seem to really like feedback (judging by what looks like your little hunt & peck of all the negative comments, and the quippy retorts &c) so I am happy to provide some for you.
First, here, have some stars for a job obviously well planned out and completed, unlike a good 99% of the flashes around here.
Second, I did notice that since this flash really pushes the limitations of flash-games, many problems arose, some included the bad lag (my computer isn't that bad, but I had to toggle the "q" quite a bit) - the occasional "never-ending battle bug" where if you click on the status screen at the same time as killing an enemy, he fails to die, but sits there at 0hp and is untargetable. Also, my firefox got so chugged out when it ran the app for the first time, that it failed to run ANYTHING else after it, and I had to restart it to clear that up.
I'm in the opinion that you need some error-handling and some state-based effect checkers to avoid some of this stuff... it seems to me that your project is so grandiose that the very capabilities of the Flash player have been really stretched. If you do continue to make it in flash, NG users will be happy, I'm sure, but you really should make this game in another format (like try one of the Rpgmaker-style languages, I havent really looked into them lately, though, so there may be better languages). I think something like Flash is really going to cause you nothing but grief until you finally decide to move your project over to something that is *designed* to do cool stuff like this.
That would be my opinion - besides the fact that it is inspirational work. Keep cranking 'em out, one way or another!

Heh... I actually DO really like feedback a lot; I just don't know what to say to positive feedback (for some reason I think saying just "thanks for the feedback!" seems so... unnecessary?), and get annoyed by negative comments, so I suppose I look like a right git because of how I've been responding... o_O

As for other things you mentioned...
The game lags "moderately badly" even at the lowest quality on my old, old computer, but runs smoothly at full screen and high quality on my considerably more powerful laptop... So it's not so much Flash Player that can't handle the game too well; it all depends on the power of the computer.
There's not much I can do about making the game run faster on slower computers, but no progress would ever be made if people kept trying to design for obsolete hardware! ...Or something?! o_O
