Programming / Re: Why would you do this? (SCD 68k)

It's just loading of the 32-bit value into register. From Z80 I think, because it have one byte access only.
Your disassembler shows instructions lsl.l #8,d7 incorrect.

If you could post the source, that would be great.

Would you by any chance have the info for the other graphics locations laying around?
No, I have not. Tell me your e-mail address by personal message.

Yes, I made it in 2007. It can edit the game text (with russian letters only). And graphics with tile maps. No sprites.
I can give you the source code. It have no comments in it, but have all addresses of editable data. And have decompression and compression functions.
Program is made in Delphi 7.

I wonder why is it junk. Could I have changed it without knowing? I don't remember being able to change the names of demons.
There is a pointer to memory not to the ROM area where all other names placed:

I don't know why. Maybe ROM is broken or it is used for something else.

If the forest god is Leshii, then here is what I found about him and cattle:

Herdsmen have a pact with the leshii to prevent their cattle from straying. They had to remove their crosses and hand over the communion wafer to the leshii. Other Russians suspected these herdsmen of having occult powers because of the pact.
In a folktale, a traveler (Leshii in disguise) promises to help a peasant with his cattle if the peasant chases the cattle out of his yard every morning. He does so and the cows return with milk until the spell is broken.
People also wrote letters to Leshii if they lost a cow. The letter had to be written three times on three separate pieces of birch bark. One copy would be nailed to a tree, one would be buried in the earth, and the last one would be tied to a stone and thrown into a body of water.

No, it is a different story. It is said that some Forest God without name had a bull named Skotinka of the Forest God. That's all what is said about it :)

:huh: Stab in the dark guess about Skotinka. If it means little cow in Russian, then maybe the folktale called Burenushka the Little Red Cow would fit? Stonka is red and since it's in the Majuu clan, it doesn't necessarily mean that Stonka must be evil and Burenushka is a good cow.

Majuu (魔獣) is not evil. They are neutral magical beasts.
Skotinka is not a little cow. Big cows and bulls also called like that. It is endearing word.
Skotinka is the bull of the Forest God, I gave a link earlier. But it is in Russian :)
And its color is gray in MT1 and in Kyuuyaku MT1.

That sure doesn't look like an Erinýs. Conversely, Pharai has mythological ties to Pharis, son of Hermes and a Danaid.

The description of them is not so well defined:
The heads of the Erinyes were wreathed with serpents (compare Gorgon) and their eyes dripped with blood, rendering their appearance rather horrific. Other depictions show them with the wings of a bat or bird and the body of a dog.

But it is connected somehow with serpents.

I'd go with 'Farai', personally; if 'Fury' were intended, it'd be フリ. Furiae would, likewise, be フリエイ or so.
English “Fury” would be フューリー or フュリー;
With correct spelling of course. I think they used _wrong_ spelling. "fu" as "fa" like in the word "fun", and "ry" as "rai". Like they often do it in other names.
And I already know the word Φαραί exists, but it have no connection with any female creature.

Skotinka seems plausible! But maybe if someone looked into the GBA profile in SMT1 for Stonka, we'd get some more clues. There's supposed to be a library with profiles available in the GBA ports of SMT1 and SMT2 for each of the demons. A lot of the stuff on the wikis is unsourced and seems made up IMO.
All newer games says that it is a one-eyed bull with bronze skin from Bulgaria, but there is no proof of it, even in bulgarian.
In MT1 it have two eyes by the way.

And repeating my guess from a letter to you:
I also have a new guess about ファライ from Megami Tensei 1.
I think it's wrong spelling of Fury (ファ = fu, ライ = ry). So because it is in Femme (鬼女) clan I think it is it. Not Bolla (greek writing φάλη, φάλαινα), because Bolla is just a snake and not female human-like creature. And definitely not Forai (Morax) from Goetia.

ファライ = Furiae

I think I found the origin of プルーシー which was renamed to プルシキ in Kyuuyaku remake.
Because that monster looks like a horse, I think it is Kimpurusha:
In some Purana's they were mentioned as horse-headed.

Besides, there is an item in the game called プルーシーの嘶き (Neigh of Purushi)

And about Stonka.
Лесовой бог. У него была скотинка, бычок у украинцев.
Maybe Stonka is a wrong spelling of "скотинка" (skotinka - endearing name for a bull or cow in Russian).
God of Forest had it.

There was a slavic tradition to sacrifice a bull for thunder god.
And belief that thunder clouds were bulls, bull's roar is thunder, and bull's stomp causes earthquakes.
But there was no any special name for such bulls.

It's more likely that Atlus used an inaccurate citation from an old mythology encyclopedia (wrong spelling obviously and possibly an incorrect origin).
First game where Stonka appears is made by Namco :)

Volva sounds true!

DDS-NERD says:
It is a name of shaman women in Northern Europe who made predictions or name of a goddess worshipped by them.
She had bloodthirsty and cruel character together with tolerance filled with all-absorbing love.
Typical mother goddess of earth and fertility.
She can be identified with Hecate, Greek goddess of moon, underworld and witchcraft. It seems that Hecate was called ボルボ.
At the same time volvo in latin means "I roll". It is a name of famous Swedish builder of cars.
In Megami Tensei II Famicom version was presented for the first time as demoness. She has impressive design: she has a strange face, wearing a dress and fixed in one pose. Seems like a goddess of witches she has a high magical power and variegated spells.
In Soul Hackers Hecate is a goddess with three faces of different design attached to the sides.
It is common for her to have powerful magic spells by default.

Sounds untrue.
Where did they found that information and Volvo name? Volvo is name of a car.
And that Yutaka ceremony does not exist.
Hecate is the godess of witchcraft, yes, but she is not Volvo.

Personal Projects / Re: Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei 1 & 2
« on: February 01, 2011, 06:20:47 am »
And I think ボルボ is Bolbe, not Volvo.

There is some monsters in Megami Tensei II famicom version which are not present in remake:

ドクターバクタ - Doctor Bakta
キンズ ヘッド  - Keen Head
バックベアード - Back Beard (from Gegege no Kitaro)

And some are not present in famicom version:

ゼウス - Zeus
アルテミス - Artemis
アポロン - Apollo
レト - Leto

ブラフマー - Brahma

Crap Slime = Crab Slime according to Djinn
It is a Crap Slime or Clap Slime, I made a mistake :)

BUG = Bug (it's from a movie)
I think Bug is not from a movie. I think it is an error in Nakajima's program, because it is almost undestroyable in famicom version and looks like that:

Rarung = Lalun
May be Lalung
The Lalung follow the cult of "poly-demonism."

Gremory = Gomory or Gemori is preferred. Gemori is the spelling in Strange Journey
It is Gremory in Goetia. Gomory in Pseudomonarchia Daemonum.
