Site Talk / Re: "Cheat" Hacks Discussion
« on: September 13, 2014, 12:56:25 am »
For things like invincibility in games, or stuff that's easily done by switching a couple bytes, I say just throw it on Data Crystal under the game's page. Perhaps making a page for it, this will have the added benefit of expanding the wiki.

If every cheat hack gets accepted, then that's going to be a lot of hacks, some of which may render the game unplayable unless the hacker test it properly all the way through.

I see nothing wrong with Easy-Type hacks, ones that actually change how the game is played, assuming it's more than change that can be done in 10 seconds, but actually differentiating between the two is going to be a difficult process, especially when the overlap. At the same time differentiation is key, and someone could make an expansive cheat hack, that doesn't qualify as an Easy Type.

You could certainly make a thread detailing the various games that don't work on this specific emulator. As for how much attention it'd draw from patch authors, I couldn't say. As was pointed out, some people/groups' only goal is for their hacks/translations to work on real hardware, and they may not be interested in making fixes for specific emulators.

I can pretty safely say that the topic itself is probably far too narrow to warrant its own specific board.

Lastly, a bit of advice. If you do make a thread detailing patches that don't work on this emulator, then please be respectful, and tactful.

I always liked Squall. Then again I was also about 13 when FFVIII came out.

One thing I will say in defense of VIII (a game that I enjoy, despite it having that one massive plot hole, and very poor game balance), is that Squall has a lot of development over the course of the game. From how initially acts, to confronting the fact that he's emotionally stunted, and eventually overcoming that (with help).

Took me 4 years, and a couple playtrhoughs, but I finally got the Platinum for Final Fantasy XIII.

Still one of my favorite games in the series, even with its flaws.

I had the same issue with my 3DS XL. I didn't have your luck in terms of transferring data however.

Yeah, I was just kidding around. I certainly don't have an answer for you. It's been close to 15 years since the last time I played FFV. I don't remember it bother me, so it must have been something I missed, or didn't think about.

I think it's quite obvious. Someone casts Old on her when she's a baby, and the spell wore off eventually.

The trailer don't tell me much about what will be going on but it's nice to see the game being getting made. ^^

The fact that the trailer went 45 seconds without showing a character from Persona 3/4, or one of its spinoffs tells me more about it than you can possibly know =p

It's a Persona game in the same vein as 3 and 4. We know what to expect; 9-11 months game time of dating sim elements with the core gameplay of a modern SMT game in semi-randomly generated dungeons.

Last I was aware it was store policy to explicitly not allow it.

This is why I haven't bought anything off the eshop. I had an issue with my first 3DS's screen, so I asked about this. Since then I've been reluctant to purchase anything I may lose due to an issue with the system itself.

Many people sell their systems back to chains like Gamestop when they upgrade systems. For example when the 160 gig PS3 was being offered for $200 U.S. trading in an older system would get you $90 credit towards the system, that's 45% of the system's cost.

You're missing my point with transfers. See, if I were to buy a new PS3, I would just deactivate my account on the current used PS3, sell the used PS3, and then I could donwload everything on my account on my new PS3.

With the 3DS I can do a system transfer, but I need both DS' for that to work. Which means I can't sell my current, soon-to-be obsolete 3DS without losing everything I bought online. Sure, I can transfer it, assuming I keep this 3DS, but I can't recoup some of my spent money until after the transfer.

Personally it's not a big deal to me. I haven't bought anything off the eshop specifically because of this reason, but it does affect other 3DS owners.

So, because they're repeat-offenders here that makes it okay? It's still a dick move, regardless of whether they've done it in the past or not.

Also, you could trade in a GB if you wanted a GBC. Here, you can transfer wireleslly apparently, but if you want to trade in your system to get a discount on the new release, you lose everything you've downloaded. For some people this could be whole games costing $50 U.S., DLC etc.

Having exclusive software is truly a dick move. As someone that hasn't owned a Nintendo system in years, and ended up buying a 3DS I can honestly say that pulling a move like this means that it'll be a long, long time before I ever even think about buying another Nintendo system.

Especially because downloads are tied to systems instead of accounts. So if you want to trade in your old 3DS, then there goes your downloads, or anything else tied to your system.

And then Rare did it afterwards, even if it didn't come to fruition. Why wait 'til now? DW has had tons of expansions like this, dating back to the PS2 days.

Just so everyone knows, we've got about 4 or so community members lined up. The only thing is it's gonna take us a while to get around to interviewing them all. We'll also need to do some fixing and implementing the suggestions.

I'd also like to do some basic text interviews for those who would be uncomfortable with an audio interview.

In addition to this I'd like to add that we'll make attempts to work within people's schedules. We understand that people are busy, and so if they can't sit down to do a 2 1/2 - 3 hour recording session all at once, then we can try and break it up into smaller chunks to better fit into people's free time.

I'm also looking into overlaying the audio, so that the listening experience is as comfortable, and pleasant as possible.

The echo seems to be a mic feedback issue on my end that's hopefully been addressed (I'll know for sure when we record again).

I generally trim dead air, I certainly may have missed some.

The left and right speaker issue is a bit more complex. The program I use to edit may have full mixing capabilities, but recording software doesn't. I'll look into this in the future, but unlike the other two, there doesn't seem to be an easy solution to this problem. Manually overlaying the audio also presents issues.

As for intros. That's something that we definitely should have done, we discussed a few ideas, and the next one will have something hopefully. I appreciate the feedback.

General Discussion / romcast 1 and 2
« on: August 21, 2014, 02:42:57 pm »
romcast 1 and 2 are up, and a big thank you to Talbain for hosting them.

The first one is Pennywise and I, and it's a bit iffy. He does a very good job of going through his previous, and current projects, but I feel like I didn't ask enough questions in the first half. Eventually things settled in, and we got a pattern going.

The second one is Pennywise and I interviewing Eien Ni Hen (that's A-en) and it came out much, much better in terms of the back and forth. We stray off-topic in a few places, but she offers excellent insight into not only her translation process, and the projects she's worked on, but also gives some tips to aspiring translators.

As a warning, there may be some mild cursing, and the files are both over 100 megs in case that's of concern to anyone.

I really enjoy the new banner, kudos to you for an awesome job.

999 into Spanish makes me happy. Frustrating that a game that interesting was so niche; so big kudos to those involved with that.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Game's that have caused you to feel emotion
« on: August 11, 2014, 09:22:17 am »
It's a bit cliche now, and it's been out for 13 years, but FFX. Of course all the game's twist are well-known by this point. It also helps that after the emotional roller-coaster ride you end up with the Someday the Dream Will End, which is the perfect song to both make you feel completely empty inside, and drive you forward. XIII also wields dramatic irony like a weapon with some of the characters.

Mass Effect in general is an emotional experience, especially if you play through the whole series, just due the sheer number of deaths that can't be prevented no matter what you do, and how easy it is to get invested into the characters.
