I'm no coder at all but that's probably a game where a level editor would be really cool, as we didn't got any official sequel since a long ago.   :)

If you mean after , and . it's probably to spare some room for the texts.

I compared the english translation with the japanese dialogs when I did the copy-paste.

As you said, there are some differences on some terms (mostyl censorship) but I found it pretty faithful though (it's not perfect, but I saw some really worst translations than that).

Of course, a new translation would be nice but personally, I think it would just be a waste of time (that's why I only offered for a copy-paste personally), as the original script isn't that bad (and actually, it's not really a game where dialogs are really important, it's not really a RPG).

Better translate games that are still only in japanese, especially when there are a lot of them whichs waits for a translation).

LostTemplar, your inbox is full again  :-\ I have all the files needed to produce the patch of "Arabian Nights", I'll try to send them by e-mail, hoping you'll look at them.

The last time I tried to tweak some RAM settings, I got some BSOD so I stopped  ;D

Though my RAM (Corsair) should be able to support a precise timing, it seems that it's not the case in reality.

I think the first one I saw was a black system with pong, or something like that.

First game I played (and owned) was Space Invaders (Atari 2600).

We had a debate about it here : http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,16512.msg243659.html#msg243659

and after I read several reviews, it seems the game isn't that bad but isn't that good either (Metacritic score : 71, Human Revolution Score : 90).

Yeah, it's always interesting to know it, though I'll pass, personally.

If I recall, the text was in EUC format. But I'm not certain.
Also, I think more often translators will usually leaving resolving formatting issues (like screen space) to the ROM hackers to figure out. :)

It's Shift-JIS.

Final tools sent to DarknessSavior, who want to retranslate the game in english :)

Of course, the rom will have the uncensored boss, original earthquake icon readded, and one of the unused text reinserted.

He'll probably put some pics when he'll have time :)

Yup, and it's not a bad thing to remind that to people, that's not the first time I saw someone with a inbox full :/

I don't like "Final Fantasy" nor do I like RPGs. I also don't like the "Metal Gear" series (I tried the first one on PS1 and the control seems too bad for me) so you seem to miss your point.

For example, I tried "Secret of Mana" on my Iphone and the controls are just crappy :/ (I also tried the "Metal Gear" on IOS, because my brother like the series so I downloaded it, and same, even him, who is a big fan of the series, didn't bother to play it after the 5 minutes-test he did).

And, oh no, no XBOX One for me. And probably not a PS4 either, because they'll probably do like Microsoft with the game publishers, even if they are smart enough to not say anything about it for now.

I'll stick on PC gaming.

And the point that someone don't like to see the game on IOS because he can't play it is also a fail, as I have an Iphone, so if I really want to play it, I can (99.9% of the games released on iPad are also released on the iPhone). But even with an iPhone, I won't even try it, it's just seem useless to me.

But if you like those console/PC games on a mobile device, I have nothing against it, everyone is free to like what they want. In my opinion, the only real type of game coming from PC that work great on a Ipad is the point 'n click type (not on a iPhone because the screen is to small to click on small things with precision).

But is the mobile gaming world so crappy to have to reuse known I.P. from console/PC world you're bitching at? They are not smart enough to create good and new I.P.? (so just some Console/PC games remodeled which cost near nothing and bring back a lot of money just because of those famous I.P. names?)

And before you start to say I'm a troll and I don't have an Apple terminal and that why I'm not happy with this news, here's :

I kinda have to agree here. If your staff can't handle it, then you should find people who can. I feel like every time you've tried to make running the site more about people here doing it instead of the staff, it's only made things more difficult.

And I don't think making the submissions handled by users is the solution. You need a set of dedicated people to make things work. There's no getting around that.


Sorry to do an off-topic here but, for god's sake, please try to not having a inbox full  :banghead:

I spent some time fixing what you were asking from "Secret of Mana" (automatic reinsertion) and boom, I can't sent the pm (and it's already the second time it happen).

For people who want to keep an archive of their message, use "File => Save as => .html file" in your browser and it's enough.

Personally, the next time I'll have something to send to someone and he have it's inbox full, I won't ever bother to ask it here and just give up (emails are useless, most of the time, emails with links go to the spam folder and some people don't check that folder).

Thanks in advance.  ;)

About the submission problem, just lock the submission to one submission per day for each user? (to be able to do 50 submissions in only a day is a crazy possibility).

We worked, with a friend, on a hack of Captain Tsubasa 4 (not a english one, but hack-wise, it's the same thing).

We had started to expand the windows and start moving the texts (16 to 24 bits pointers), but we put it on hold until some of our others projects are finished, but there wasn't anything really hard about the hacking.

If we finish it one day, I will share the asm scripts.

Post PC world, I wouldn't say that.

Lots of people might go to the PC side if the PS4 have the same crazy rules as the 360 (I'm on PC now, personally).

Mobile gaming will never replace the classic gaming, not even the console portable. I mean, maybe they will get more money like that, because crappy games require a low budget, but the people who actually play on console and PC will never go the mobile gaming world, that would be completely utopic to think that.

You always had to play it as a stealth game or the game would become very boring (but completable, though).

You can complete "Human Revolution" without being spotted (except a few scripted scenes from the scenario which don't count in the stats) and without any kills (except boss), I can confirm it because I did it (and it has been confirmed with the unlocked  achievements).

Well, they won't say their game is crappy anyway, I won't say it either but you'll never get a control as good as with a real control device (Keyboard/Mouse or GamePad), that's why they had to put an auto-lock, which is kinda crappy in such a game.

I assume they will announce it, at least, for PC. There is no way they could leave the situation as it and risking to hurt their reputation (which is already not really great with the last Final Fantasy), especially if they plan to release "Deus-Ex 4" one day, to avoid affecting the sales (copy risk for people who still want to play the game, but who don't want to give money to a company that don't care about them).

General Discussion / Re: How did you met your significant other?

I'm currently alone (after several tries). since near a year now, and plan to stay like that forever.

I'll let Peter Steele (Type O Negative) talk for me, as we completely have the same problem about that thing (rest in peace, man) :

What scares me? Abandonment. That’s why I will never love anything ever again - and I am completely serious with you.

I mean, to the asshole who said, "It is better to have loved and lose than never to have loved at all" - you know what, jerkoff? Fuck you! (...)

You want your heart ripped out? You think you’re cool because you have a four-chambered heart? (...)

No, man... it’s just I have, when I... love... I mean, I was with somebody for a really long time. And... she’s no longer in my life. And - the depth of my love for her - was just like taking a cinder-block and dropping into the Mariana Trench. Which is the deepest part of the ocean of the coast of fucking Japan. Thirty-seven thousand feet down where they have those, like, creepy black fish - with the big teeth?

That was the depth of my fuckin’ love. (...)

And I will never ever love like that again. I cannot. A fuckin’ defense-mechanism. I just cannot. And it’s a really sad thing, because God’s gift to mankind is life. And to live is to love. I love love - I want to love. But it seems to me that I love too much; and if I base my life on someone else, when they walk outta my world, they take my world with them. And it’s... something I have a problem with. (...)

I mean, I do not want to be alone for the rest of my life. I’d love to have a life-partner. But... you know, I just - I don’t think at this point in my life, I just don’t think I could handle someone walking out of my life if I loved them that much. Maybe I’m weak, I don’t know.

But to answer the topic, I first encountered her on internet (friend of a friend I know since a while on IRC).

Yeah, the teasing is, in my opinion, also a big part of people reaction.

They were like, "hey, tomorrow, we'll announce something big, stay tuned!"

So lots of fans were "OMFG, Deus-Ex 4!"

And then, the day after "Look at that, our big announcement is a mobile game !"  ;D

Without the first announcement, I think most people wouldn't care at all about this game.

They could just have waited until the actual date and say "We are releasing a mobile game, end of the story".

They tried to do a big announcement, they managed to do it, but in the wrong direction seeing the reaction on most videogames boards/websites.

Well, that's not a very objective article in my opinion...

1. It’s Deus Ex
=> That's not enough to say everything is good. "Invisible War" is a "Deus-Ex" game and it's known as the less good of them (not very bad but not very good either).

2. It’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution
=> Not really. It just reuse the game mechanism and look.

3. It’s Portable
=> The 3DS is also a portable system and have buttons and a analog stick so it's better than a smartphone/tablet. No to mention you can release games online without selling them in carts, in case you want to release a small game.

4. It’s Out Soon And Won’t Cost $59.99
=> But it won't be as long and good as "Human Revolution", so it wouldn't worth $59.99 anyway. Not to mention I never really saw a game as interesting as a real one (aka PC/Console game), and it don't only apply to the Deus-Ex franchise. Most of the games which seems interesting on a mobile are often bad because of their controls.

One comment say "I can understand you. If I wouldn't have a ipad, I would be pretty mad".

I have an Iphone so I would be able to play the game, that not prevent me to do not want to play a Deus-Ex with touch screen controls.

I don't like the title of the article anyway "should stop" ? People are not free to think what they want? "might stop" or "four reasons who might make people like the game" would have been better.

It would be a free game, I would understand the point of the articles, but by reading it, it seems you have to like it and so spend money whatever the game is because it's called "Deus-Ex", hell no.

And I'm glad lot of people don't buy anything without thinking first, as the actual video have 600 likes and 9000 dislikes  :)

If they are really interested in making mobile games, then they can create new I.P. but, of course, it won't bring as much money as known franchies so they will never do it.

I'm not surprised anyway, that's the same publisher who complained that they only sold 4 millions of Tomb Raider and 4 millions of Hitman, when both games sold fine (even Tomb Raider and it's 100 millions costs should have bring more than 100 millions with the 4 millions of units sold).
