I've been extremely busy with finals unfortunately. I picked up Tales of Xillia so I hope to put some time into that over at least some of the weekend. 

Site Talk / Re: Unclear rule on piracy
« on: December 12, 2013, 10:57:43 pm »
The biggest factor here is merely common sense. Of course attempting to download something that's illegal will make DMCA warnings pop up. Also what you download illegally, and how, and where, is something no one here cares about or wants to know. It's not just in the rules as well as basic etiquette, it's also common sense.

As for the arguing of the English language, well, if you're going to argue for something being wrong then it's also courteous to at least put apostrophes in their proper place in the post doing so.

The issue could have been avoided by simply saying that some searches bring up the DMCA warning, sometimes when it's warranted, and sometimes when it's not. If you'd simply said "anything that's illegal" as  you just did, then it probably wouldn't have been a problem.

Because that's your email name too?  :huh:

It's because I didn't capitalize the g all those years ago, and mods can't alter usernames. Not a huge deal at all, but it just sits there, taunting me by being lowercase.

Aye, why do you think there's still a lowecase g in my username after 8+ years...

The one thing I've really wanted to try over the years but haven't is Irn-Bru. It sounds like it'd be an awesome soda, but I have yet to get my hands on any.

Music Composer HOSO-Q of Video System Company, oh he DID NOT sample Martin Luther King Jr. for a game called Lethal Crash Race! :banghead:

Wow! That's all I can say, at first I thought you were joking, and then I watched it for a second and thought "there's no way this is real". The only thing I gathered was that this was something you played at Chuck E Cheeses, has anyone actually played this... thing?

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Star Ocean:The First Departure Editor?

I can't say for certain, but I think it's highly unlikely that there's an editor for this game. If you're only concerned with alter boss and enemy HP then the project shouldn't be extremely difficult. I say shouldn't because there's always the chance that information is compressed or stored in a way that makes access extremely difficult.

I don't know anything about psp emulation, or what emulator has a tracer, but if you find one that does, then that's going to be the first step (after learning about hex and the basics).

One thing to note though is, that to my knowledge, the game doesn't run properly on emulators. If this is still the case then that's going to make things harder than it's probably worth at this point, particularly if this is your first project.

Site Talk / Re: Consensus on Wiki vs Main Site
« on: December 01, 2013, 02:16:45 am »
I believe they are asking whether it would be better as someone new, to add information to the wiki, or the main site.

For news articles, patches, and information of that nature the main site is what you want.

The wiki is used for information regarding specific games, patches and translations etc. It's a solid repository of code, and hacking information, but the primary use isn't to get news on the newest hacks/translations projects.

You're always welcome to update both, and the wiki does need more love, but if you're looking to add patches and news articles then you'd want to first focus on the main site, or see if that information could apply to wiki and site.

If however,  you're looking to add information like rom maps, tables etc. Then that information should go on the wiki. Ideally when a new translation, and, or hack is added both places are updated accordingly with a redirect from the wiki.


As I have said elsewhere, even if Sega only uses Atlus to bounce ideas off of, or ask for help in certain areas, it could certainly be a win-win for fans, and Sega themselves.

I always assumed they were twins. Although that was just how I pictured them, and I don't really have any interest in looking up that information.

The series has been stagnant for years for me though; I don't particularly care for platformers, and I played quite a bit of the older games. It's so difficult to make great level design over and over without repeating the same tricks and set ups, and Mario was hands down the best at that at one time. When you release multiple games every year for multiple consoles though, you're bound to have to use the same designs, premise, and tricks at some point.

One the one hand they're obviously successful and I can't blame any company for putting out as many games as they do, because they'll always turn a huge profit, but at the same time this series, which was once so innovative in everything that it did seems to just be stuck doing the same things over and over. How much of that is the fans fault for wanting it like that, versus Nintendo's fault for not wanting to take a chance I couldn't say.

The spinoff games are much more interesting to me. I wouldn't play a platformer, but the RPGs and Luigi's mansion both interest me more than yet another platformer.

Another major milestone. Kudos, and a very happy holidays to all.

It's not uncommon for certain drinks to still be produced for certain regions. I hear the New Coke is still made and distributed in/to Northwestern Europe.

I know a lot of companies did the various flavors in the mid-2000's, and I actually really liked the blue and red mountain dew (I hate regular mountain dew) but I'd never heard of Pepsi Blue.

I imagine I'm not the only one, but I actually have had Crystal Pepsi. My father used to be big on Pepsi to he tried it. I thought it was so awesome looking at the time, but then again I was 6 or so.

What's Pepsi Blue?

I haven't seen this stuff in a very long time, but considering they stopped making it in like 1993 or so, that's just pure stupidity. Soda isn't like fine wine, it doesn't get better with age.

I actually just bought a physical copy of Devil Summoner, but I still haven't gotten a picture of the crack-like-thingy yet. The weather was pretty crappy yesterday.

I like the option of the eshop, and once I get this issue fixed I'm probably going to purchase a couple older games (Ninja Gaiden and Shining Force for sure), but I also like the fact that I can store full games on the system. That way I can carry SMT IV or whatever around in the system, and still have something else to switch to if I'm not going to have a large chunk of time to play something. I just wish it was tied to an account and not the system.

On the game side though, I gotta thank you guys, because there's a ton of stuff on here I'm enjoying, and a lot of stuff coming out I'm interested in.

Considering they did IS, EP, and P1 all for the PSP in recent years, I don't see how anyone can say they pretend they didn't happen. Granted it's not optimal, but at least they did something.

And actually I do think it's nearly optimal. Outside of a full on remake for P2, there's not really anything else I'd like to see done with that section of the series. It's fantastic as is; EP is probably still my favorite game of all time.

I'm not even a big fan of Nyarly crossing over into the P4:A games. I'd rather personally just see everything wrapped up and move on.

However, to ease your pain slightly I'll give you this.

The announcements before P5 were Persona Q, a crossover 3DS game. Persona 4: Arena 2, and Persona Dance. That last one was the third out of a supposed 3 announcements and it was one of the best trolls I've ever seen. People were freaking out, but I was too busy laughing to pay attention to their comments.

I'll try and get a picture of it next Tuesday when I'm at my brother's. I just lent my aunt the phone to take pictures with yesterday actually.

Assuming I don't get around to getting up to gamestop before then and try to return, as it stand there's plenty of time left on the warranty, and it's not a gamebreaker at the moment. That said I obviously don't see it getting any better so I'd like to get it taken care of before I make an eshop purchase.
