Personal Projects / Re: Secret Of Mana Gameplay Improvement Hack
« on: August 30, 2019, 03:17:38 am »
Hi zhaDe.

I read the topic and what you posted, and I feel like it's something that I'd like to try.  Unfortunately, the link (v1.0) seems to be broken.  Can you fix that?

Alsol, I heard (from Kethinov) that you have hack patches for the following (these were all created by you):
- Spell Power Tweaks
- Saber Elemental Damage
- Lower Weapon Status Infliction
- Extend Buff Time
- Acid Storm - Magic Def Down
- Speed Up - Faster Recharge

I can't seem to find that anywhere, even when I used google.  Can you send me those patches? Or post it somewhere (Not sure if they work with Relocalization or other patches, so I'll be sure to read the readme)
The secret of mana turbo hack is an unofficial continuation of this hack and you don't need to enable the new stuff if you don't want to. Go check that out

A youtuber/hd texturer named Nerrel mentioned this hack in his latest video on collection of Mana and the remake of SoM, he basically said there is no reason to play the remake with this hack existing. While I think the translation and extra story scenes are good reason to play the remake (after playing the original) he is mostly right. Also I wish more improvement hacks would be modular like this one!

As far as sword tech goes have you thought of just Deathblow? Just a suggestion for an alternative both work.

Kinda wish someone would make hacks for the android version of the game, that version is so pretty.

Honestly FF5 had better gameplay but FF6 has better story, having no real main character through the entire game (Terra Celes and Locke come close but still) is an interesting concept that not many other games do.

I wouldn't call it a perfect game by any means ("flawed masterpiece" is probably the best term I can think of to describe it)
I think compared to what was out there at the time it very much was a master piece. About the only thing I wish they did different was make the game require more strategy, most of the game can be beat with piling on more damage really.

Gaming Discussion / Romancing SaGa, SNES or Minstrel song?
« on: August 12, 2019, 06:20:23 am »
I love hate this game so much! :banghead:
I picked up Minstrel song and loved it until I couldn't deal with its strange mechanics anymore! Now I am thinking of trying again but I need to know if I should play the SNES version or the ps2 version. Any thoughts?

Can we get this translation ported to the steam version too? The hacking community for that has done a great job of fixing the issues it has and I would love for it to get the best translation it can get too.

There's a romhack that fixes a lot of the programming issues in Super Ghouls n Ghosts and speeds up the game significantly. This works on real hardware too.
I would love a list of roms that do just this, I love fixed up versions of games that removes slowdowns like the Megaman psx ports.

Gravity rush 1 has a remaster on ps4 that's 60fps and beautiful. There is the newest Deception game, nightmare princess is it called? There is Dissidia final fantasy nt and for a time Monster hunter world (Also on xbone but no pc release).

Wheres Ramza?

So I've been enjoying the Rockman complete works ports to the playstation with its more sound channels and removal of slowdown and I got to thinking if any other game ports for later consoles enhance the games like this. I heard that on some compilations super ghouls and ghosts has had framerates stabilized and of course metal slug 2 ports usually have an overclock feature to get that game running without slow down.
Any others I should check out? Not really looking for remakes so much as just "Fixed" ports.
I guess HD compilations can count too because those usually up the framerate etc.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Shin megami tensei IOS: Anyone dissect it?
« on: July 21, 2017, 01:14:17 pm »
I doesn't emulate the GBA version, tho it does contain slices of the rom to pull data. The code seems to be 100% statically recompiled (the exe contains around 10K functions).
So its kind of like the mobile final fantasy 5 and 6 in that way? Neat.

Gaming Discussion / Shin megami tensei IOS: Anyone dissect it?
« on: July 21, 2017, 12:55:45 am »
Since IOS is moving to a point where old games won't be supported by newer versions I wonder if anyone has checked out the inner workings of this port? Its basically a port of the GBA version so does it just emulate a translated GBA rom?

The DS version is the most accurate but they made the game harder because they believed the audience was older people who played the game in their youth. Most other official translations have stupid pop culture crap thrown in.
The Ds version is a very well put together game it just had kinda crappy graphics.

Good question, because those of you who know FF3USME have probably noticed there are three txt files in that 7zip while the tool can export more. :P

For famiilarity's sake and because the script uses GBA as a  source, the the plan is to usually default to GBA for names and such, unless the script says otherwise (which is rare, but I'm keeping an eye on that).  Location names will be decapitalized.  Keep in mind that this script was already used in Improvement with the only thing not done being the now-done opera, so the filling in is mostlly everything not included in the script dump (location names, item names, monster names, etc.), alignment issues, hoping the opera works out, etc..  Considering this will take a while as I want to do it right, if anything else comes up a Help Wanted Ad may appear.
So in your opinion will this be the most accurate translation out there? I heard the GBA script is great but it has a few flaws.

There are things left undone (Kefka, but things have been done to his lines), but they are fewer than many patches out there.  In fact, here's a dump of Darkmage's script itself:

Changes aren't planned to be big to the script itself (most changes will actually be changing everything else to what's in the script) and I'll be keeping close to what's written.  Maaaaaaybe GP will be Gil but that's it.

I heard the writer for FF6 actually liked Kefka from the american version better and based most of his later appearances on it, but that's just hearsay.
Gunna get a translator to help with the parts you have to fill in? Or just default the GBA script?

Gaming Discussion / Good HD texture projects for Wii Gamecube and N64
« on: June 17, 2017, 06:35:52 am »
I was wondering if there was anyone here who knew a thing or two about HD texture packs and what are some worth looking at? I have Xenoblade and Sonic colors currently but I am sure there are more.

I'm amazed no one has chimed in with the best Tetris as far as competitive tetris is concerned. I don't know myself but I heard gameboy tetris has some flaws that make it bad in their eyes.

That's one reason why I want to do this.  I know some are kinda like "another script fix?" and I understand that because there are a lot of good ones, but this one deserves to be pulled up due to the different perspective.

It's also planned to have a few more bells and whistles to make things worth it.  I'll talk more of this when I get a thread up (which will be a long distance from now, and I'll have more to show than intros.  I still haven't fixed my problem), but basically along with the obligatory uncensoring (including Dr. Meat's final battle stuff so this is set to be more uncensored than Improvement) it's going to be the only script completely compatible with the CV bugfix compilation.  If the planets align bushido renaming/button config will be in here too.

I just like having the most faithful translation of anything I play so this is a dream come true being this is one of my favorite games ever. Hope you make it to the finishline bro!
