I'd be willing to draw you up an 8x8 proportional font that matches the one I did for the Schala Project way back in the day. Interested?

I'd, uh, also need the Schala Project font again, too. I don't have it anymore, I don't think.

I'm surprised a topic hasn't been started here about this yet.

EDIT: This topic here already talks about it, sorry. http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,16268.0.html

Please feel free to ignore / delete this. I was just excited, I guess! :D

I;m surprised you didn't go with FES, given P3P cuts out so much of the game(Really shoulda been two discs so they didn't have to cut so much out).
I was told P3P was faster, simpler, and less frustrating. After P1 and the P2s, that's right up my alley.

EDIT: Speaking of P1, I loaded my save on Shin Megami Tensei: Persona again. I don't think any Persona fan would ever be able to understand why I love this game so much. I still have to finish the Snow Queen Quest. Apparently, my choices are to grind for some more levels I may or may not need, or go to the next tower, Nemesis. I'll be doing that, following a map of course, soon enough.

Current Personas.

Protagonist:
- Seimen Kongou (Rank MAX)
- Lilim (Rank 5), AKA one of the the Win Game buttons.
- Airgetlam (Rank 1)

Yukino:
- Vesta (Rank MAX), I'll probably keep Vesta forever due to Freila.
- Fuutai (Rank 7)
- Shouki (Rank 3), Estoma is my virtue.

Ayase:
- Houri (Rank MAX)
- Urvashi (Rank 7)
- Janus (Rank 1), I actually had to level Ayase up for this.

Elly:
- Nike (Rank MAX)
- Sati (Rank 6)
- Phaleg (Rank 1)

Brown:
- Nemhain (Rank MAX)
- Quetzalcoatl (Rank 6)
- Triglav (Rank 1)

Despite what I said before, I moved straight on to Persona 3 Portable.

It's addictive. I can see how it won the hearts of people, made them ignore or forget about Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

I like the voice acting, the cast and situation seem nice. The battle system and moving through Tartarus are both fluid. The time managment concept seems interesting. I'm a bit spoiled from the option to turn off battle animations, which exist in P1 through P2: EP, but I'll deal. On the whole, I do plan to finish Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable.

However...

Having played Persona, Persona 2: Tsumi, and Persona 2: Batsu before diving into the more popular half of the series... Persona 3 doesn't feel like a Persona game.

I finished Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

It wasn't worth it.

Spoiler:
Tsumi already had the perfect ending. Everyone meets again in front of the train station. Everything seems to be looking up... then Batsu happens.

But I only say that because Batsu told the ugly truth behind the seemingly beautiful ending in Tsumi. Things weren't going to just be Maya being a hard-working career woman, or Yukino confessing to Fujii, or Eikichi starting a band with Jun and Tatsuya, or Lisa finding her true way.

Shit was going to get real, whether Batsu happened or not. And it did.

Now, for the Sumaru Gang and the Mikage-cho Defense Force, life can resume as normal.

Things may never become beautiful and perfect again... but do they need to? The Gang sacrificed their bonds to save the world, to save Sumaru City. Or, "The sacrifice for the few for the sake of the many."

It was a sacrifice that needed to happen.

Perhaps I should more accurately say, it wasn't worth it... if all you care about is the happy surface of the story.

I'll be "always by your side," but you'll "change your way, it's gonna be alright..."

In the end, I got more than my money's worth out of both Persona 2 games combined.

I love Breath of Fire V, a lot more than the PlayStation games. I love what Capcom did with the series, and I think it's a masterpiece.

Not many agree with me, though.

*adjusts hipster glasses, then listens to more "underground" music from artists you've probably never heard of*

EDIT: The last time I professed my love for Dragon Quarter, though, it started what I want to nicely call a "heated debate."

A slow playthrough of Persona 3FES or 4 can take 80+ hours by itself.
That... that'll be fun.

Maybe I'll take a break for a replay of The 3rd Birthday after I finish Batsu.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Your most recent gaming purchase?
« on: April 02, 2013, 09:26:32 pm »
I bought a Vita--which came with a carrying pack, charger cords, power brick, and 8 GB memory card--a hard copy of Persona 4 Golden, and legitimate digital copies of Persona 1, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 3 Portable. I later bought The 3rd Birthday because I have no self-control.

I'm quite content with my game collection, for now. We'll see how long this lasts.

I'm currently running my Persona-thon 2013, where I'm playing the games in the series I own in order. I'd like to discuss the feeling of not making progress, but I can't without spoilers. I'll just say that I think it was an intentional design choice.
I suppose so, but feeling like you're still barely out of square 1 when all that's left are...

Spoiler:
The subway, Ameno Torifune, Sumaru Castle, and then Monado Mandala...

...makes it feel like a waste of 51 hours, now.

I think that this'll end up being another 5 to 10 hours, though. I still want to grab the maps for the bomb shelter areas 7 and 8, too.

That'd make Persona 2 being the second most time I spent on an entry in the series (95 to 100 hours between Tsumi and Batsu), right after FFXII with its 226 hours.

I'm about 40 hours into Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. I have spent 80 hours between it and Innocent Sin. My god.

Thing is, though, I don't really feel like I've accomplished anything in Batsu compared to Tsumi. I mean, I'm on the Nichirinmaru, and I just now feel like I'm accomplishing something, story-wise.

111
Eh, not really. I just thought "I don't want to call it Super Peach Sisters, and Peach and Daisy aren't sisters anyway."
but thank you. :) now if we could just get ahold of kishi to put in mattrizzle's edits.

112
Why not super peach sisters?
See, I thought about that, but to make it totally one-for-one with the title Super Mario Bros., you'd need to make it Super Peach Sises, which looks awkward. I mean, simply Super Peach Sis. could work, but then you lose the plural that the original title was going for. Super Peach Siss. is out of the question from the start.

Then there's the fact that Peach and Daisy aren't related like Mario and Luigi are--they're cousins, not sisters, right? At least, that's what I was told. So SMB became SPG.

I suggest SMB Princesses as the name. I'm assuming Daisy is P2.
That's also a good one, but you'd need to organize the title screen in a different way... unless you wanted to be lazy and put "PRINCESSES" in the in-game font under the original title screen. :P

IIRC, that quote was a photoshop and not something she ever said...
That makes me feel slightly more at ease. I'll take your word for it.

That doesn't mean there aren't "radfems" who actually think that, though.

As someone who dislikes her because she's a worthless journalist: holy crap dude overreacting much????
No, you don't quite understand. This is a woman who, through the power of Social Justice Warriors on that grand ol' shitpile cesspool that is known as Tumblr, managed to run off with $15,000 to do her "video game reviews."

She appeals to those "radical feminists." According to them, I am only homosexual due to my "intense hatred" of women--that goes for all other gay men as well.

If you cross her, her deranged cultist followers will run after you.

She has the power of the hivemind.

Okay, I might be exaggerating  now, but seriously, she does have a creepy little following of "transethnic radfem multiples turtlekin womyn".

I am not making this shit up. I could talk all day about Tumblr "social justice," really, I could. But I don't want to, because it's freaking terrifying.



On the actual subject of the Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. mods: I am in favor of them. I love playing as women, and identify with female characters very much more often than male characters.

So, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment does indeed have the same episodic game layout as Innocent Sin. Storyline event, downtime to upgrade equipment, change Personas, and read updated NPC dialogue, and then back to a dungeon, and some story, then some downtime again, repeat.

Except Batsu isn't as text-heavy as Tsumi, meaning often times no NPC text updates until two or three dungeons and plot scenes have passed. If anything, I have to go in to the shops just talk to my teammates, which doesn't take nearly as long as wandering around the areas talking to everyone.

I'm 20 hours in and decided to go down Elly's route, but so far I'm not really seeing any significance to Eternal Punishment. Like, Innocent Sin ended perfectly. We never needed Batsu, yet here we are.

Before starting this game, I knew...

Spoiler:
Kandori was somehow revived, and we gotta take care of him. Batsu ties in to the plot of Persona 3 and Persona 4 Arena somehow, in some small way. And lastly, I know that this Sumaru City is actually cut off from the rest of the world due to Tatsuya not wanting to forget his friends, so the new world couldn't be made.

But Tsumi took me like 40 hours, and assuming Batsu is the same length, I'm already halfway through, and I was mostly excited to get Elly on my team. Now I'm just kind of sitting here, playing, waiting for the game to be over so I can finally move on to Persona 3 Portable.

I have to admit, in terms of content, Eternal Punishment is the better game. It has content that's more original, and the rumors are put to a more intuitive use here, but Innocent Sin has the better story.

117
This is for real:

It took about an hour for me to put this together and implement it into the ROM.

I also fixed the formatting of the Mushroom Retainers' text:


I won't distribute a modified patch for this unless I can get permission from Kishi.
Very nice! You definitely improved on my little edit. :thumbsup: Good time too! Thanks!

118
And under 10 minutes? You sure know your SMB tiles!  :-*
Oh, whoops! It's a mockup. I mean I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to put it in an actual SMB ROM, but I didn't even put it into the real game. Aheh... sorry.

Not bad at all, but I would use the term Sis. (in comparison with Bros.)
See, I thought about that, but to make it totally one-for-one with the title Super Mario Bros., you'd need to make it Super Peach Sises, which looks awkward. I mean, simply Super Peach Sis. could work, but then you lose the plural that the original title was going for. Super Peach Siss. is out of the question from the start.

I got bored today and made a 10-minute mockup/edit of the Super Mario Bros. title screen thanks to the Peach and Daisy mod.


Any thoughts? Keep in mind, I don't think I'm actually going to do anything with this mockup.

Well, I have a guide to follow so it's not all bad, but I mostly don't like how it's been "simplified" from P1 and P2: Tsumi. Instead of mostly relying on a single character's individual commands, you have to figure out (if you don't have a contact guide) the right group combo to do.

I'm getting the hang of it, but I can tell I'm going to prefer how P1 and Tsumi did it.
