Ya know, I've been following this hack since it was announced all those years ago and I gotta say I'm really excited about the new direction you are taking. You've got skills Esco and clearly the dedication to see this to its finish and I wish you the absolute best. Thanks a hell of a lot for the time and energy you've put into this project!

I put up a quick FAQ on the blog: everybody please read this FAQ. It will answer many of the most common questions, and keep people from asking me the same question 20 times in a row.  8)

Thank you for the support! I hope when it comes out that it is everything that you dreamed of and more.  8)

Where is your blog again?  Maybe you should put it in your signature?

Wow this is really cool.

keep up the good work man! I am super excited to try this!

I would love to see a "proof of Concept" video if you have one. The fact that you are rebuilding the game from scratch boggles my mind and has sparked my curiosity as to what it would look and play like.

Haha a side by side comparison video would be fantastic.

A new update has been placed on the blog. And for those of you with creative talent or artistic skills, I could also use a little help:

Quote from: (cut and pasted from my newest blog post)
If any of you out there have some artistic skills and can come up with an idea to replace the original scrolling sky/water at the bottom of the screen in the intro stage feel free to suggest it. I would be more than happy to see an example of your idea. I honestly don't know if it is supposed to be air or water at this point.

This has to be the project i am most excited for!

Keep up the good work!

Thanks. I hope that everybody enjoys playing it when I am done.  8)

Sorry for the LOOOOOOOOOOOONG silence (it has been about 12 days), but I placed another update on my blog. Everybody please feel free to check it out.

NOTE: If anyone has any artistic skills here and wants to contribute to the hack/remake, please feel free to send me a U2U here saying so, and detailing what kind of skills you have. Seriously committed people only please.  8)

As for the lack of Maria in the game, I believe the PSP version is still the same engine, just loaded and played through a sort of emulation. The PSP version does have Maria and her resources, but some people whine and complain about how she plays in the PSP version. I'd upload those files but I think it'd be the same violation as if I uploaded the ROM.

If you are referring to files like her gfx, feel free to U2U me a link. I still need some of her gfx (I have all her sounds).

UPDATE: New post added to the blog: and this once comes with a nice, shiny, video! Enjoy!

Thanks........ and the reason is because most people are lazy and want others to do things for them. I luckily have a few very talented people, who are helping me out with gfx related stuff! And I am very fortunate to have them.  :happy:

Another blog post has been put up: this one is about languages and pad/keyboard support

Also in reference to people requesting japanese voice support (cut and pasted from the blog):

As for Japanese voices, well to be blunt I have had SEVERAL people volunteer to help; thus far none of them have produced anything. I know that several of you out there want to have the option to use these, but I personally do not care about them. So with that being said:

If you guys want japanese voice overs included I will need a SERIOUS volunteer to do the following:

   
  • Be able to understand both japanese and english; this will be necessary for the 2nd and 3rd tasks
  •     Be willing to match up the Japanese dialogue with the american text: I know what clips go where, but the text speed would have to be programmed to match the speech like in SOTN. So in other words the text types out with it's equivalent dialogue. This is very easy to do, but somewhat time consuming. The volunteer would be provided everything that he/she needs. They would then just run the program, and note at what point on the display timer for the sound each bit of text should be typed out at, sentence by sentence (word by word would take too long, IMHO).
  • Lastly, there will be a few sound clips from judgement (maybe 10) that I will need matched with their English equivalent. The same for the PSP version (maybe about 5 here).

Let me make this clear: if I do NOT receive a volunteer to work with the Japanese voices, I WILL NOT BE DOING THEM!

I am willing to take extra steps to make fans happy; but people will need to help me a little with it.  :thumbsup:
