Ha ha. For what it's worth, I can confirm that Lenophis is not a beta tester so stop bugging him...Ahem.

Anyways, this beta test has already turned up something that not even d4s caught. Somebody pointed out that the strings for the in-battle "Use/Equip" menu were glitched, and in the process of fixing them, I discovered that there are actually two Use/Equip menus in the battle screen (one that displays when the cursor is in the left column and another that displays when the cursor is in the right column), and while d4s had found the relevant bytes for displaying them both, he had only identified the purpose of one of the two sets. Which was why I was experiencing a curious glitch where I thought I had resized the Use/Equip menu to properly fit the words without all the extra whitespace (bluespace?) but a much smaller menu kept being displayed.

So it's fixed now. And one of my beta testers has also voiced concerns over how blank spaces in the item and magic menus aren't highlighted (meaning the pointer "vanishes" in them). I think I might have an idea on how to solve this, but I need some time to see if it's implementable or not...

He left my mind intact. I can dream, I can wonder, I can lament. Simply, he has taken his revenge. I have no mouth. And I must scream.

I am the best beta tester ever.
The best part is that this guy has been registered since September, and he finally used his first post to make a joke in bad taste. I love you, Arcaj. :laugh:

If I don't stop giggling, I might get asphyxiated. :crazy:

In all seriousness, I'm glad to see this project reaching this point.  Ryu's worked on this project for some time, and he's handled it extremely transparently, which is not something you see very much.  Congratulations on reaching beta, and I eagerly await getting to try it out myself at some point in the future.

can i be a beta tester? i have over 142 years of experience beta testing. some have called me "the man who slew 1000 bugs". others have called me the "one-man QA department". not that i like to brag; despite being the smartest, most productive, and hottest guy on the face of the planet, i'm also unbelievably modest.

you can send me the beta right? every word i utter is truth, sweet as ambrosia dribbled from the lips of the gods unto the parched earth below. you have my word that the moment i get it, i'll report every bug there is! by which i mean, spread it around the interwebs!!! mwahahahha!!!111222 he'll never see this tiny size 1 text expounding my diabolical schemes, opaque as stained glass!!!

Attack!

Popping in for no other reason than to express sheer glee that this is (presumably) coming down the home stretch. Glad to see you haven't killed yourself doing this project, Ryusui, and I'm really looking forward to the general public release.

Heh, I don't even know if I would have the time to help test something like this unless no one cared that I did it on my cell phone.  Having your free time come in phases is kind of annoying.  Still, I'm glad as well to see this coming along so smoothly.  Rest assured that once your project is done, Ryusui, I'll probably have to buy a battery life extension for my cell.   :thumbsup:

Looking forward to this. The official translation is so uninspired I stopped playing shortly after the frog kingdom scenario.

Holy crap. We quit around the same time (I played the GBA version).

It was very nearly "Ryu pukes his pants!". Of course, I figured the line was a bit over-the-top, and furthermore it displays the name of whoever's in the head of the party, so I simply went for "Ryu throws up!", which is gender-neutral...and, almost as importantly, pants-neutral. XD

Ha ha ha! I'm sporting an iPhone, mate, just as was called already.  I also have an NES and Genesis on here.  It's not perfected yet, but it works rather well despite.  I'm attempting to help the devvie of SNES with a compatibility list a little along with some of the others.  Kinda..just jumped in and added a few games to it. :P Apparently I'm Aspara...? Cool Ryusui, that makes you Thoth then.  Oh, and this is just for you, andwhyisit:

He broke off after saying "This is Spar..." and I joked, "no, he's Aspara now" (i.e. in BoF2, the name "Spar" has been reverted to "Aspara"). Get it?
