Quote from: Helly_ on January 09, 2018, 05:36:45 PMSo the save before last is actually the one that has a text error and the last save has that unknown map name error, right?I only have access to the last save, so I do have that crash indeed, but it seems like it happens whether or not the game is patched... Hummm...Ah... It's the actual patched .exe that crashes the game...Let's see...Further remarks about the ArcExe file. The devs' exceptions for ingame errors include a 'fucking Error' and a 'Damn it Error'...Ok, got it. And patch uploaded!http://www.mediafire.com/file/24i3ivd558fn772/Arcturus%2010012018.rarI didn't expect you to have gone this far already! I hope you're enjoying the game

Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 09, 2018, 10:53:48 PMI'll be there in a bit, I need to grind some more. Speaking of grinding...SpoilerDid the game seriously call me out for grinding before Elizabeth by giving me an amazing sword and disabling the save skeleton?[close]
Quote from: Helly_ on January 10, 2018, 02:54:28 AMYes. Yes it did.
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 10, 2018, 03:09:31 AMAnd yet, I still need to grind more becauseSpoilerI apparently have terrible accuracy against Ahriman, and that's if I get lucky in beating Elizabeth if she doesn't cast Meteor Shower over and over. Funnily enough, status items like the tear-gas grenade work on all bosses, and are amazing in stalling for time to recuperate. Also, the disabled save means I had to go back and spend 15 minutes whipping that fat bastard in the forehead because direct HP damage is so good, I wish others had similar moves to that. :CIs there any reason why my Lv46 Tenzi with no equipment whatsoever is taking 2 damage from Ahriman's lasers and lightning?[close]Edit: Alright, I beat the game! All thanks to Elluard and the best skill in the game, Occipital Blast, of course. What an amazing experience that was! Also, the after-credits stuff was grand. SpoilerWas Lee Jaesong (the character) simply named after the battle planner, or was that actually her in the game, save for the purplish hair?[close]
Quote from: Helly_ on January 11, 2018, 06:15:47 PMCongrats!You're quite probably the first non-japanese/korean speaker to have ever finished Arcturus Thanks to you I've managed to put my hand on valuable saves all over the game, as well as correct some nasty bugs, so thank you for your hard work play!And the answer is: I don't know, but it's quite possible
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 11, 2018, 08:01:29 PMWell, I have you to thank for that, don't I? Your work and the tools you've acquired have made this all possible.I think most of the bugs left that aren't game-breaking, mostly just annoying, are the actor bugs, which I think I've detailed all of them (or most, if they're in side-quests I've missed) since they're somewhat sparse. They even happen during the SpoilerN.G. segment, since it uses the Dome thieves scene, which already had actor issues of it's own.[close]Edit: If you want, I can give you my final save for the after-credits sequence, if you need it to fix the errors. Also, after checking again, the game still crashes after the flashback in Philadelphia.
Quote from: Helly_ on January 12, 2018, 07:11:45 AMYeah, I do have to take care of those actor bugs, even if the game is still playable.Anyway yes, i'd love your entire save folder! It should help me fix the bug in philadelphia
Quote from: ArcturusFan on January 13, 2018, 06:47:17 AMOk, the end of Chapter 1 was among the longest cutscenes I have seen in a game so far Since it was a lot to take in and I would hate to miss some key story detail, I have some questions\rambling below and I would appreciate the veterans here to clarify those plot points:Spoiler1) Sizz was controlled by Empenza to kill Celine and take out her Dallant heart because Empenza couldn't do it himself or because he wanted to make him suffer? Judging from Empenza's last lines, it does seem the former rather than the latter.2) Which town was destroyed by Elizabeth's Meteor, and why? Did Empenza trigger this by reuniting the Dallants?3) The Republic is in civil war now between Leigh and Molay's factions, but are the Kingdom and Empire directly involved in the war? Who are the "Government" soldiers in Martunie, since they have a different uniform from the soldiers seen previously?4) So Sizz holds both godly and devilish potential, we don't know as of yet who his real parents were but he was contended by two "human dolls" with different objectives, Empenza and Senkrad, and then went to live with the Flair family. As of the start of Chapter 2 we still don't know what human dolls are exactly or who their Father is, right?5) Sizz's body, the godly part, was taken in by Baara's Cardinal, which is secretly plotting to use it to resurrect some kind of devil. Meanwhile, the Gritt faction led by Senkrad captured his evil soul, divided from his body by the accident's shock. Is it right?6) Is the Gritt church the same as the Church in Baara? The Baara Church seems based on Christianity while the Gritt one seems based on Zoroastrianism, but maybe I missed something. I also don't understand Ai's role in the Church, how she met Senkrad and so on.[close]
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 13, 2018, 01:10:45 PMI'm certain there's far more spell creation books than the one the game expects me to find, Salamander, a spell that seems like it would've helped me progress without relying on Fire Shower so much had I known how to use the catalysts before I beat the game. I just couldn't seem to find any others.Edit: And a lot of questions for Helly_, when the ending reveals SpoilerLee Jaesong suspended in a high-tech pod, I didn't quite follow the details as much as I wanted, maybe I'm just not good at picking up on certain things. Was Jaesong "playing" as Celine the whole time? Does that mean we were in the virtual world all along hence the binary rifts in the sky and the wireframe apostles? Or was this the virtual world in the virtual world? Was Sizz (Mitra)the eyes for Ahura Mazda, who might've been the eyes for Lee Jaesong if it was the virtual world? If Sizz was truly female all along, why did Ahura refer to him as her son? She could've said "my child" unless (going back to the Jaesong's eyes idea) Jaesong was not expecting Sizz to be female. On another note, wouldn't it have been such a cool reveal if it turned out that the virtual-virtual world was Ragnarok Online considering the death of major figures in this game and a cataclysm that shakes the world to its core?[close]
Quote from: Helly_ on January 13, 2018, 05:40:03 PMYeah, spell creation was originally going to be something much more complex according to the devs, something akin to what you have in Morrowind for example.Regarding your questions: SpoilerThere's no official answer. I think it's indeed that the world they live in is itself a simulation. Jaesong is Celine, but she didn't remember it until her memories were unlocked by Ai and Sizz. Regarding Sizz's sex, he's actually referred to as 'My son' by Ahura Mazda in the original version, so I think she is referring to his 'complete' being which is masculine. He became a woman because at the end, only his body of good remains. I'm not really sure why we see Celine/Jaesong in that pod, unless maybe she decided to seal herself away from the world somehow?The whole mythos has remained quite a mystery, even for koreans and japanese...Ragnarok Online came several years later, actually, so it might be possible that it's the same world! Maybe there are clues to be found in RO (apart from Sizz and Maria existing as shop NPCs, of course. You know, I still don't know if Maria really deserves her ending. I mean, she was a true sadistic despot during the whole 1st chapter...[close]
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 13, 2018, 05:56:51 PMHmm... SpoilerI know that Celine is Jaesong, but wasn't there some detail about Celine being a clone of Jaesong or something, or am I making that up in my head? She looks much younger as Celine, adolescent age, as opposed to Jaesong who looks to be in her 20s, but I'm not sure if the magi ritual involves de-aging along with immortality, and if it would be passed via cloning. It's not the twin sister thing (since that was Elizabeth). The whole thing about Jaesong in the pod leads me to believe that she had the Dallant transplanted, then was chosen as one of the 144,000 humans to be placed in stasis on the ark. If that's the case, and she was using Celine as her "avatar" to experience the virtual world that might be the world of Arcturus, then it would make sense that the Dallant is in Celine because it's in her body in the real world.[close]
Quote from: Helly_ on January 13, 2018, 06:58:34 PMWell...SpoilerA clone of Jaesong? No, as far as I remember, she and Celine really are the same being. According to your theory, everything was a 'dream' and thus didn't matter at all? That's harsh! Also, who would then be Ahura Mazda? Celine/Jaesong too?Regarding Maria, I actually do like her character arc, since she became a better person through helping Elluard despite everything. He himself is still as thuggish as ever, however.[close]
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 13, 2018, 07:56:31 PMSpoilerI can probably perceive Jaesong as Ahura Mazda and Hyongi as Ahriman then. Both would be vying for the outcome of the Arcturus world if that's the case, and both are assumed to be connected to the virtual world, with Jaesong in the pod and Hyongi as part of the engine.[close]
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 13, 2018, 07:56:31 PMSpoilerThis may sound silly, but with the fact that the real world appears to be long ruined at that point, I would prefer to believe that the Arcturus world (if it's the virtual one) succeeds it as the real world. A neat twist would be instead of Sizz teleporting the party to safety from the crashing ark, they unexpectedly end up in the real world (Eden) directly because of Ahura Mazda giving Sizz her "power", since nothing really came of that scene aside from Sizz blocking an attack. With all the flickering spirits (digital holograms?) telling you about the outcome of their world, it could mean regrets from the past, or the real world warning the virtual one. Of course, that wouldn't exactly explain the ending, unless they decided to go back to the virtual world, but why would they do that[close]
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on January 13, 2018, 07:56:31 PMSpoilerEdit: What is the code combination for Spoilerthe fifth floor of the ark that requires four inputs of 0/1/2/3? And what's the point of the login data?[close][close]
Quote from: Helly_ on January 14, 2018, 04:28:37 AMSpoilerHint: Check the computer on the 12th floor [close]
