Didn;'t you make the easy mode version the standard version? I was under the impression that version was fairly balanced...

Ghideon Zhi,

Lunar Silver Star
Lunar Eternal Blue

both for the Sega CD, both great RPGs!

As someone who loves Lunar

The original Lunar: The Silver Star was kind of crap. It starts off very good but the dungeons eventually turn to shit. I played the remake/s after beating L:TSS and they are so much better.

Nintendo's having issues, but they're beginning to pull out of them... for the moment. The Wii U is a sales disappointment. In terms of third party software sales figures, it's Wii 2.0.

3DS is fairing much better, but it's not fairing as well as the DS. Don't think anyone really knows why. It's definitely a profit generator, though.

Butchered to the point where it's become known as a legendarily bad game, no less!

Definitely go with Pennywise's version, Croc.

For star ocean a guy called Dgdiniz figured out the last untranslated part of the game the "yes/no" bubbles
and was polishing up the dejap translation.


For FEoEZ As far as I remember, the translation was finish around June 14, 2012 05:00:56 pm, how do i know that?
Tom posted a very specific post; about him finish the second playtrough of the game here.


also a few screenshots from 4chan retroboard



The last 2 years and 6 month's of no progress?
who know's? maybe Byuu doesn't care to finish the hacking part of the game, is to busy to continue, or lack of interest.

Some project's are like that, the two i remember nearly 100% and then disapearing from the face of the internet;
are ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat and samurai showdown rpg, there where alot of pics of the games near completition, something happend
and the author's didn't want to publish their work.

Byuu's quit romhacking and programming.

demilich, we don't allow ROM site links here.

No western RPGs being listed? :(

How many Wizardry games aren't in English now? It seems like the majority of the Japanese ones have been fantranslated, but I could be wrong.

If you're willing to go to the PSX, there's BOF 3 and 4, FF7, Legend of Legaia, Xenogears, Guardian's Crusade... List goes on.

Oh God the hype haha XD
Thank you! :)

Hopefully by making it a sticky, some ASM hacker could lend me a hand to fix the title screen glitch to finally have a final, definitive version and release the Omega revision of this hack!

People can submit news on any hack's release, really. It's just that most don't.

Considering what happened to FF7 PC's source code and KH1's art assets...

That shit was likely lost to the ages.

It's also no longer running an ARM11. It's running an A7.

There's also the ACE games, which span many consoles. They're a lot like Dynasty Warriors meets Super Robot Wars.

The other games set in the same universe as Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Enix and the quality of their games
« on: January 14, 2015, 01:31:27 pm »
While they are publishers, they are very involved in development - many of their own staff are also developers who help with these projects. The first PS2 Fullmetal Alchemist game was technically done pre-merger.

They published good platformers - Papuwa, Violonist of Hamelin, Mischief Makers. Experimented a lot with the PS1: Planet Laika (Quintet, RPG with heavy focus on storytelling), Endonesia (by former Love-De-Lic staff), Brave Prove (Zelda 2D clone), Blade Arts (Zelda 3D clone), Bust-A-Groove, The Fear (horror), Star Ocean 1/2/3, Robot Alchemic Drive...

When you imply they're ashamed of their old heritage post-merger, that's... not very true. For instance:
* They went through the trouble of relicensing the Papuwa platformer anime game for a Japanese Wii VC 2008 release... as well as Actraiser
* Mobile port of Wonder Project J2, with enhancements (especially a different redone 3D section from scratch)
* Mobile remake of Star Ocean Blue Sphere
* PSP ports for Star Ocean 1 (a remake, actually), 2 and Valkyrie Profile
* Itadaki Street series still as strong as ever

Square Enix can get just as bad treating some of their lesser known IPs from Square's side - Soft Boiled Hero (and that's a series), Dinami Tracers, Xenosaga, Live a Live, Front Mission, Treasure Conflix, Treasure Hunter G, Threads of Fate, ... They avoid rereleasing (or reprinting, for that matter) anything too niche though.

XenoSaga is Namco. Xenogears is Square.

Try Fruits Basket. It's amazing, IMO, my favorite manga. Do avoid the fan translations, though. They're kind of... shit. The officially licensed ones are much better.

In addition, avoid the anime. It covers less than half of the manga and is a textbook example of how to adapt a series from one medium to another and lose the spirit of the work while still having an "accurate" adaptation.

Edit: Plus, the voice actors in the U.S. dub and the original Japanese dub suck prettttty bad.
