Gaming Discussion / Re: Favorite Game Music?
« on: July 26, 2014, 10:40:42 am »
From last generation it was definitely the Nier soundtrack.  Though anything from Yasunori Mitsuda always gets me hooked., and Xenogears Myth (the orchestrated Xenogears album) still gets a ton of play in my MP3 player.

Edit:  Oh, and let me add this as one of my favorites in recent years http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yu9We0Ok98

Edit 2:  And this one... *sob* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvEXqjnuQww

I'm pretty sure Bongo` over at http://dynamic-designs.us is always looking for new translators ;)

Site Talk / Re: File Submissions (update requested)

I received the e-mail stating to update the existing file, which I found pretty vague.  Instead of having someone go through the whole submission process incorrectly, maybe some kind of mention could be made on the page to help people update files properly.

Site Talk / File Submissions (update requested)
« on: April 18, 2014, 03:04:13 am »

Just wanted to request that someone include a note in the "Submit Files" - "Translation Guidelines" that mentions how updated files (translation updates, addenda) should NOT be the same name as the file on record.  I updated a zip of a translation which had the same name as the previous version and my submission was rejected.  I would have made sure this was avoided if mention of it had been made.

If it is mentioned somewhere, then I must have missed it when speed-reading through the long list of rules, and I'm sorry for bringing this up.


I use "Mantis". It was pretty easy to set up. At first it may look like overkill, but it is easily customizable so you can chop it down to something more to your liking.

Thanks for the tips Gideon!  My plan is actually quite similar to yours.  I'm reporting each new issue that pops up to our internal bug tracker so that I will have a permanent record of it.  I didn't think before to include who reported the bug, but I will definitely make mention of it in the readme when an update patch comes out. :)

@Malias:  Yeah, I think ChronoMoogle 's assessment is correct.  This definitely was something added/broken with our last bug fix.. *sigh* I was really hoping the bugs people found would be a little less prevalent.  Looks like that 1.01 patch will have to come a little earlier than I had hoped.

Edit:  Thanks again, we've already got it fixed :)  I'm not sure, though, if I should release a v1.01 patch right now or if we should wait a while in case more potential bugs arise.  I'm open to your thoughts.

@Darkmoon:  I believe that this is the "unhackable" game you're talking about.  The menus are ridiculous and required a TON of work.  I'm not surprised that so many passed on this game.  I think at times Bongo` probably regretted accepting this project ;)

@Dgdiniz:  Thanks for your kind words, and I'm sorry if I never got back to you via e-mail.  These days, so many e-mails that aren't top priority fly under my radar.  I'm so busy raising my daughter half the day and working the other half.  I wake up at 6:00 am most days and don't get to sleep until 12:00 am.  I only find the odd break here and there to sit down at the computer to work/play. It's a lame excuse, though, but I will say thanks for your interest and offer to help us out, even if it was only for a short time.  I know how time taxing real life can be!

If it makes you feel any better, it was toned down much more than say Feda.  Sad that you'd pass judgement without even trying the game :(

Got a quick one for you guys out there.  I have a pretty good idea of the meaning, but I just want to make certain.

; 取り戻してくるよ。

Big thanks!

Sadly, it's real... And yeah, it's for disposal.  Poor "useless" male chicks...  It makes me pretty sad to see so much life extinguished in a heartbeat.  Thankfully, I had the sense to look away before the machine was turned on :(

Are people actually starting to take NORTH Korea's threats seriously these days?  They spout out so much nonsense that there's no point now to start picking out tidbits you want to start believing as true.

Cockroaches, maybe... But really it's the smaller level insects that will survive a nuclear blast - anything with a smaller DNA chain or something.  Didn't I learn this on Mythbusters?

General Discussion / Re: Playing your own Hacks/Translations etc.
« on: November 18, 2013, 12:19:25 am »
As someone who deals mainly with the scripts and testing (and less with the actual hacking), I can say that I have never played one of our (D-D) releases after it has been made publicly available.  Those hundreds of hours I spent testing/editing/translating/etc. were enough. :)  It's kind of sad in a way, but I wipe my hands of the project once it's done.

Great pics Gid!  I'm really looking forward to this game as I just recently rediscovered the Ys series.  Good luck with the bugs and testing!

Gaming Discussion / Re: Retronauts podcast on fan translations

I'm with you guys.  I'd love to see a podcast section on the site (or at least some links)!

@Next gen Cowboy - Doing interviews with some of the old fossils from the early days would be fantastic if you could track them down.  I've lost contact with so many of those old timers, and it would be great to know what they are up to now.  Also, their perspective on the early days and how things have changed would make for a great listen.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Final Fantasy VI brought to iOS and Android

FF4 was on the DS at first, same with FF3. Dunno if that should count or not.

ALL the other FF games and DQ games that SE is planning to bring to iOS were on other systems first...  I don't really see what you're getting at...

@KingMike:  I don't have a problem with RPGMaker style graphics...  I believe most complaints come from younger gamers who never lived through the glory days of the SNES.

I'm not trying to start any fights here; I'm just tired of seeing ANY iOS news from a big Japanese company get crapped all over by almost everyone in any news comments section...  Which begs the question: Why am I even reading the comments sections!?  Everyone knows not to do that! ;)

As someone who has played through a lot of SquareEnix games in iOS, I can say that I have actually enjoyed what I've played (Though some of the graphic work in FFV was awful).  I had great experiences with FFIV and FF:Dimensions... 

To me it seems that whenever S-E (or other Japanese companies these days) announces a semi-decent game for iOS/Android, people automatically start crapping all over it... I'll admit that there are some PURE GARBAGE games put out on iOS (All the Bravest), but they aren't all bad, and a lot of the newer "expensive" titles are really quite good.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this remake is going to look like :)

If only my wife were into games... That would be great!  Although, I'm much more productive not being able to sit down in front of the TV and waste away the hours while gaming ;)
