Very cool. And your reasoning makes total sense. I definitively hate all the weird accents in the US games (although the puns are fun, lol) and any game in which you fight little slimes wearing knight helmets has got to be a little whimsical, the spell names do not need to be that place. The new place names are just harder for me to remember, not sounding like real places very much. I think the US place names managed to hit that "real place" sounds very well, which is a problem with many JRPGs.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with me about it! Are you planning on tackling PS1 DQ 4 or any of the later games in the series? I would love to have a single consistent style from beginning to end LOL. In the end, I really think that is closer to my REAL issue here. But again, even if its just the NES stuff, nothing but love and support for you guys. I appreciate your hard work and dedication no matter what your plans are for the future.

That's cool. I can understand. I just feel like the newer spell names fit the more whimsical nature of the series a little better. But as you mentioned, I already have a lot of options to give me that, I just really like your text otherwise LOL. Regardless, you are doing a great job, and thank you for giving my favorite JRPG series the love it deserves! Final Fantasy is given too much attention, and DQ too little, great to even that out a little LOL.

I really like the majority of what you got going on here with 1, 2, and 3. Haven't played them in-depth (time is short atm) just a few hours of each. My only complaints are minor, in that I like the US names for the places and the modern spells. But hey, that's ok, because I really appreciate the effort, and its something I can't do, so don't consider this a complaint, so much as a thanks from someone with slightly different tastes. If there could be an optional patch to change those things back, that would be cool, but I get it if that is not feasible or wanted, given the stated purpose of the hacks otherwise.

Also, I think it would be neat to have the Japanese title screens. But again. no worries if that is beyond the scope of the project or just generally not desired, that is totally understandable. Thank you for all of your hard work!

I would like a hack for the NES Dragon Warrior games to simply change the title screens from the terrible US versions to the simple and clean Japanese versions. Since most of the games already have hacks to modernize the spell names, it would be nice to officially modernize the game names, imho. I don't know how hard this would be, but it would be pretty cool to me.
