Quote from: Turambar on March 18, 2013, 05:42:05 AMSeems like either Ondol or Ondor could work just because of the L and R situation with Japanese. Is there a reason to prefer Ondol? I mean, "Vlad" was "Vrad."
QuoteSadam could also have been Sodom (another reference to religion). Japanese has limited syllables, so sometimes they can only approximate it.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on March 18, 2013, 08:27:41 PMHere's a couple requests. It would be useful if when buying items it would show your current amount of hearts. I believe later Metroidvania games did this.
QuoteI don't know if you can fit this, but how about adding "next:0000" to show how much more experience you need to level up? Either show how much experience the next level is achieved at.Or perhaps to save space you could add experience remaining until the next level. For example if you have 51 experience, and the next level is at 100, the number in the counter would be 49. That would show how much experience you need to reach the next level. You might be able to use less digits this way too.
Quote from: Rhetorical on March 19, 2013, 09:11:16 AMI always seem to finish the game at level 4, because I don't usually grind each area, and end up in the "Zero Experience" status at an inopportune time.
Quote from: Bisqwit on March 19, 2013, 11:24:36 AMVlad rather obviously refers to Vlad the Impaler, one of the inspirations behind the story of Dracula. It is indisputable.There is however no indisputable evidence of the Ondol/Ondor rationale.
Quote from: Bisqwit on March 19, 2013, 11:24:36 AMNo. Japanese does have the distinction between S and Z, and they do not mix it.And Japanese does have sufficient vowels to distinguish A and O.Now I quietly wonder why they did not localize the forest as Zadam forest, because that would be a more accurate romanization.

Quote from: Bisqwit on March 19, 2013, 11:24:36 AMI believe level 4 is about the right level, too. If you are too high-leveled, the clues about laurels for example no longer apply to you, because you can cross the Joma swamp even almost without laurels.For each distinct scene in the game (every scene that has a distinct automatic cursor location in the map), the game has a maximum player level that the game can grant you experience. I believe they designed it so that if you go through the game in their intended order, you are always getting experience from the next place and never stuck in an e-point valley, unless you backtrack and run in circles. But I cannot confirm it, having done relatively quite little playtesting.
QuoteEdit: I didn't ask for a Infinite lives cheat.
Quote from: Turambar on March 19, 2013, 12:31:13 PMThere is no indisputable rationale to prefer Ondol over Ondor. Are you going to hold the guy at Konami who did the original English text as some kind of authority? I think that guy's work speaks for itself.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on March 19, 2013, 11:46:51 AMEdit: I didn't ask for a Infinite lives cheat. Even metroidvania games have gameovers, but they don't remove your currency after death. I was hoping for something more like that.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on March 19, 2013, 02:19:39 PMIf you have a infinite lives cheat you can't get your password, should you need one. You can't quit either then load a different file if you don't get a game over. Also, the purpose of getting hearts halved is more reasonable than removing all hearts. What RPG removes all your currency when you die? Especially nowdays. I thought the point of many of these changes is to make the game more like a traditional rpg. I don't want to use a double heart code because I'd rather see how many hearts I can get on my own, legit. If I wanted to get lots of hearts without earning them I could use a infinite hearts cheat.
Quote from: Bregalad on March 20, 2013, 08:07:41 AMYou you want infinite lives, but you don't want it to be a code ? Fine, but once again that's not the purpose of this hack.Of course you keep all your money in Aria of Sorrow or any other modern CV game when you die, but Simon's Quest is not Aria of Sorrow. It has been designed this way. The saving system is completely different too, you don't restart just where you died when you die in Aria of Sorrow

QuoteProbably cause he didn't want to redesign levels to have save points.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on March 20, 2013, 08:23:35 AMI don't know how many times I have to say I don't want infinite lives. I'd be fine with halving the hearts at death. Simon's Quest isn't Aria of Sorrow, but the game has been slowy evolving into a modern metroidvania. The map, the saving, whip inventory, heart max increasing on level up. Saving is different, yes. Probably cause he didn't want to redesign levels to have save points. Redesigning the levels to have save points probably wouldn't have been a good idea anyway.
Quote from: MathUser2929 on March 21, 2013, 12:50:06 AMThat's not an easy fix. You'd have to calculate what your hearts are in hex. Then determine what half of it is in hex. Then alter your code each time. And then when I do that, I have to disable the code so I don't have infinite hearts. Besides that. I don't plan on playing the hack on a PC emulator. So I can't change the code every time I want.Stop being an ass about someones request. I've said multiple times I don't want an infinite lives code yet you keep coming up to it. You've probably spent 6 of your 12 posts in here trying to be the biggest ass you can. Quit it already.
Quote from: Rhetorical on March 21, 2013, 01:53:37 AMThat's all very easy to do in FCEU. You can keep windows calculator open at the same time to do the hex conversion for you. Takes less than 10 seconds to type in and change each time you do it. You don't have to alter the code, just type the new value into the window. I can provide more thorough instructions if you want. You've been asking for infinite lives the whole time (essentially) and only recently changed your wish to losing half hearts upon death. The only one being an ass is you, although a more apt description would be obtuse.
Quote from: Vanya on March 21, 2013, 01:58:23 AMDude. Seriously, just drop it already. I understand exactly what he's asking for and why and it isn't infinite live, essentially or otherwise. If you want to continue the debate I suggest doing it via PM and not on here.
