Yeah that's a fair bit better. Considering most people are gonna wind uo playing it at like 640x480 or higher, that change should be enough.

I'd say lighten the text. It's close enough to the background to where it's hard to tell what some of the letters are. A lighter text color might help a lot.


Okay, seriously though, I can't say I'm surprised. FF games before 6 had the bare minimum of dialogue, and 6 didn't have that much more(maybe 30-50%). The story was of secondary effort for a very long time mainly due to space constraints.

One has to wonder if somewhere in SE there are ancient documents outlining a more detailed plot for FF1...

Those older system came extremely late in the system's life cycle, when it was already phasing out. And the exclusive games for those were irrevelant. This one comes way too early and comes with a Xenoblade port right out of the gate (though even with new hardware, the preview video for that had abysmal framerate).

FWIW: the GBC basically took over and after a while all newly released GB games were GBC exclusive. DSi you'd be correct on.

As for Xenoblade: The original 3DS couldn't really handle it I don't think. The Wii is not exactly a powerhouse by any means, but the 3DS has a goddamned ARM11* running at 233 MHZ. Don't think it can handle the number crunching needed by a game like that without some major issues(Disgaea's DS port, anyone?).

*It actually has two, but I doubt the engine for Xenoblade is multi-core aware or would be able to get enough performance out of re-architecting it for a second core.

I prefer this, yes.

When my player is too vocal or too distinct, I feel like I'm watching a movie more than playing a game. 

This even includes visuals on my end, I need to feel like I'm controlling an extension of myself, and playing as some effeminate pre-teen with Best Buy hair kills it. That's a big reason I couldn't get into the PS2 Final Fantasies back in the day, and much prefer something like Morrowind, etc.

I like games with heavy create-a-character approaches, hopefully more than 4 races, two genders, etc. I've yet to come across one that gives a solid story on top of that, but I'm also 6-7 years out of modern gaming.

Fallout: New Vegas. Just... just play it.

Did you ever finish 999, Isao? I really hope so. It's amazing!

Playing Chrono Trigger DS. I figure given how influential the game is, I should beat it. I didn't enjoy it when I tried it in 2001 or so, but I'm enjoying it this time. I think it's because the opening is a little slow.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Fallout: New Vegas were damn good at invoking emotion out of me.

I didn't have issues back in the day. *shrug*

You do know that CV HoD was intentionally made to sound chiptuned. Whether one likes it or not depends mostly on how much they really like NES samples.

Yeah, but they did that because they ran out of RAM and had to use the GB/C sound system Nintendo left in for backwards compatibility reasons.

They are a lot more stringent, that's for sure. For years, people were afraid to put game footage they recorded of games they own copies of up on Nico Nico Douga, for fuck's sakes.

We've had facebook links before. This is nothing new.

It depends on the game I think. In Transistor, your playable character is most definitely mute.

Edit: also you should buy Transistor it rocks.

Thanks so much, guys! I'll add you to the project's credits page. With this, Phantasy Star II Improvement is officially finished!

Edit - Here you all are. Phantasy Star II Improvement, v1.0. I added tryphon to the hacking credits, too, but he was removed for some reason...

Resubmit it. I approved that myself and I never saw tryphon's name.

Gaming Discussion / Re: pSX and borders (resolution)
« on: July 29, 2014, 12:52:58 pm »
It's not accurate to have those extra scanlines. Screenshot resolution should come from the display primitive in the otag list, since that defines the range and size to display from vram. Some games even go all the way to use a non-standard resolution, such as Chrono Cross implementing 320x224 for the most or FF7 sharing black strips across display areas.

Yeah, isn't one of the Crash Bandicoot games in some weird like taller than it is wide screen ratio because of using a non-standard resolution.

People have used them to buy carts to re-dump or for their manuals and such.

We have removed the plagiarized hack from our site.

I assume they are going for the largest market first for some of these games.

Everyone and their mom heard about this game coming soon now, best and cheapest marketing campaign ever. Well played Squeenix, gg.

No fucking kidding.

Plus, well, this Sky person seems like a giant asshat. The other team members seem to confirm this.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

If you like action games based around hitting people, just go fucking buy it. Like right now.

pSX uses highly outdated MESS code. When this was discovered, pSXAuthor all but disappeared from the net...

FWIW, I've found a few games that glitch on it that don't on ePSXe, like you can't play SOTN in the last version. It WILL freeze.
