Are there any item names with more than two words?
Do you have a need to have more than one word on one line in the status screen?
Those same questions with regards to skill names.
Anything else special regarding item/skill names?
Well, so far I have preliminary item names like Black Pearl Necklace and Ring of Darkness, but I guess those could be eliminated if necessary (BlackPearl Necklace/Dark Ring). There are some that would look weird when there's a line break after the space, like War Mace. Would it be possible to have some kind of control character that causes a line break in the status screen but is ignored in the shops, a slash or something? Doesn't look like there's anything different for the skill names. There doesn't seem to be an analysis spell, btw., so the monster names might not even appear in the game.
I'm not sure, but the Item/Skill window in combat could be a bitmap with no alternative sizes. The data files contain enough empty space to have alternative short item names for combat about 24 bytes after the main name, if that is a possibility.
One more thing; it seems the game isn't working perfectly in 7 x64. When the BGM ends it doesn't start over. It's not a game breaker, just a little annoying, but I thought I would mention it here.
I have it the same way in XP and in VirtualPC with Win98 installed, so it might be a bug/design decision in the game itself.
There's one more issue aside from the main script: Pressing M, D or alt brings up Baldea's notebook where the player can type in custom text, but by default its set to Korean. Usually on a Korean computer, you'd just have to press the right alt key to switch to English, but they might have left that function out.
How much more time do you intend to sacrifice for the project in general? Would you be available for dumping and reinserting the main script? Then I'd take down the help wanted ad...
Is it a traditional RPG or an action RPG? Looks like chrono trigger esque battles
Kinda like Chrono Trigger, but more dynamic.
Ah, I might be able to help with that. Every once and a while I like to write a bit of poetry and I've even done so for a translation. I converted a bard's song in Silva Saga to rhyming prose. Perhaps I'll try to whip something up for this.
Putting it into rhymed verse sounds a bit risky, but if you can make it sound solemn, I'd be down with that. There's a variation to the first stanza that goes like this:
my name means...
fear to you
anger to you
sorrow to you
joy to you
love to you
