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.

Thank you for all to hard work to bring Wizardry series to english. You really rock, man!

Please, tell, do you plan to translate a PS version of Wizardry Empire in the future? As I recall, the game has different subname and plot in comparison with GBA version

Thanks :) Right now we are working on Wizardry II - Legacy of the Princess  for PC/Windows. This title is also on PlayStation but we wanted to work on the PC version due to having the mouse and it running smoother on a PC. After this we plan on working on either Wizardry Chronicles next which is also for PC or working on Wizardry Empire - Staff of Resurrection for the Game Boy Color. There is a Wizardry Empire 1 for PlayStation that also has a PC version of it which I would like to work on but I am having a hard time finding the disc for it. For now these other projects should keep me busy in the meantime.

Do you mean you can't find PC version of Wizardry Empire? 'Cos PSX version can be found on [URL REMOVED BY MODERATOR]

And one more question, if you don't mind. Do you plan to continue to work on Wizardry Gaiden 4: Throb of the Demon's Heart?

Does this game use PC-like names for the spells ("MAHALITO" and such) and if so, does the patch keep them?  Some people still have the spell names burned into their brain from long hours with the PC versions.

All the spells are not with the original names as when they were translated they had different names from the beginning plus there are a whole bunch of new skills with the prestige classes.

As far as Wizardry Gaiden IV goes, I am waiting on EsperKnight to finish doing the text insertion and that should be about it. In the meantime, everything I am able to do on that one is done at the moment.

Also just found a copy on Amazon Japan of Wizardry Empire 1 for sale so that will probably be next instead of Chronicles :)

I'll post some links down here if anybody is interested in obtaining PC copies to order. They seem to work fine under Windows 7 64-bit also as that is what I have run Chronicles & Empires II under. Had no problems as far as playing them!

Also here is a proxy service for those who wish to order them in the states. Seems Amazon in Japan wont just directly ship these to your home address if you live in the US. Treasure Japan does a pretty good job in getting these items over to me.

Do you know how to get both endings? I can get the missing ending for you, but I would like to know how to get it first.

To be honest I have no idea what effects the outcomes of the endings but Demilich just sent me a save where the other ending comes up. I hope to have a new patch uploaded sometime within a week or two. Got a lot of school work at the moment so hopefully I can get this done soon! :D Will post here once the new patch is released!   :woot!:

I understand.

By the way, is there a possibility you could send me saves at the last boss and ending for the other wizardry games you've hacked? It's for a little project of mine.

Thanks! Those saves will be most helpful.

And thanks for the site, I will keep it handy.
