Quote from: Sara-chan on November 07, 2020, 08:00:51 AMThe game launcher has the resolution, sound etc. settings and you need to set them before the game will run.
Quote from: Moranite on March 11, 2021, 07:23:30 PMHello everyone.So, I've been playing this game, and enjoying it, but after Windows 10's recent update, I can't seem to get the game working anymore. The window comes up as if it's going to start, but then it suddenly closes. I'm not sure what I should do. Is anyone else having the same problem? Any solutions found yet?March 13, 2021, 08:19:59 PM - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)Well, I got the game working again, but now there's a new problem.My saves seem to have just disappeared. I started up the game, the saves aren't there. I looked in the "save" folder and it was empty. I have no clue what happened. I didn't go and delete them myself or anything like that. I just don't see them anymore. I really hope there's something that can be done about this. It wasn't easy getting as far as I had before.
Quote from: Val the Moofia Boss on August 01, 2021, 02:25:41 AMGreetings,I'm trying to play the game, but it crashes on startup and tells me to configure the game. When I use the launcher and go to the options menu, it tells me to select a video device (presumably my GPU) and a screen mode (presumably windowed or fullscreen?), but when I click on those options, nothing appears. I installed the game on my Windows 10 computer and on a Windows 7 virtual machine. Same result: doesn't see a GPU and it doesn't give an option for a screen mode.Earlier in the thread, @LuxEtUmbra pointed towards where the config files were saved in the registry as binary code, but I don't know what to input to fix it.Does any have a fix for this?
Quote from: Palom4 on July 14, 2020, 09:47:34 PMHi, I downloaded the "Romance of package" version that it's the only one I found.I'm not sure if that's the correct version (around 900 MB)I installed the game and when I wanted to add the patch I realize the main folder doesn't have a "Data folder".
Quote from: Thelostrune on March 09, 2022, 08:15:27 PMIs it considered disrespectful/unethical to continue and/or correct errors in (seemingly) abandoned translations like this one?Having played through the entire game, I've spotted a variety of errors and want to refine the translation further.For example; there's a bunch of that/this/it mix-ups, no proper line breaks, Act 2 Baara having a whole different way of formatting going on.There's also a lot of oddities in general, some where it feels like the game wasn't being played.Either way, I spent the day redoing the admittedly crude image editing done at the chapter selection, character pages, et cetera. I've also done Act 2 chapter selection edits, which I don't think Helly_ ever did.Here's a download to the image edits (still has spoilers if examined, don't dig too deep) https://www.mediafire.com/file/awr5e29cshzbn8q/data.rarAlso contains a fix for an Act 2+ enemy (Little Mermaid) which would crash the game if hit. The developers apparently didn't save the .wav file in the correct format.Here's an example comparison image. All edits were done with Paint.net, so my methods aren't entirely optimal.
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on March 14, 2022, 03:02:14 AMI had done a few edits of the chapter selection, but that was when I had the time to do some basic work on those assets. I think I prefer your results though!
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on March 14, 2022, 03:02:14 AMI noticed that there are pain sounds for the characters too, is it possible to enable those?
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on March 14, 2022, 03:02:14 AMEdit: And do you know the reason why the game only runs well on Win7 and takes a performance nosedive on Win10?
Quote from: Thelostrune on March 14, 2022, 08:34:21 PMI figure I should also mention to properly install and/or enable the Indeo video codec for this game, as there are cutscenes that use it later in the game and not just the intro.The codec comes bundled with the game, but just in case, it's here as well along with instructions on enabling it on Vista and later: https://soggi.org/misc/articles/Intel-Indeo-video-audio-codec.htmHad to read the thread and image search it to see if Google had indexed any images that are now gone. I think I see two of yours, yes.I was confused as to why "difficulty" was still mentioned, so I had to dump my own .pak files instead of looking through the one I got from someone else.Turns out I was editing files from some Korean version and looking at them as a reference, so now I'm not sure what to go with here.Sonnori's and Falcom's graphics differ quite a bit, as well as the aforementioned difficulty mention on the scenario select.Don't think so without altering formats I personally don't have much clue of, as I'm not a Ragnarok Online guy.Only litlemermaid-damage.wav's format is different from the rest, so it's probably not a matter of not being correctly exported.No, I have zero clue as I am unable to get it to run on my laptop (GE73VR 7RF, 120hz) with any combination of graphics configuration and frame rate limitations (needs to be 60) as far as I'm able to tweak these things. Basically, I have the same issue as Val has (or had.) It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the setup itself, as I manually input the data in the registry as it should be. Forcing ArcExe to use the GTX doesn't work, either.Things like this is why I'm glad I stuck with Windows 7 on my main machine.Edit: Got it to run under D3DWindower, finally. I'll edit in anything worthy of note.Manually set the resolution in D3DW to 1080x1920 and uncheck Windowed Mode, run the game, minimize it and then maximize it to view everything 100%.This won't be pixel perfect, unless combined with Borderless Gaming (https://github.com/Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming). Shoutouts to Bowl of Lentils for mentioning Borderless Gaming in a reply to his video. Overworld and battles are smooth for me. Hopefully you've glossed over the "Frames' setup" in Diary > Options. Setting that to 60 gets me a smooth and relatively stable frame rate over Auto.
Quote from: Sara-chan on March 14, 2022, 11:36:40 PMDo we know if Helly ever actually released their full translation of the books? Does anyone have it?There's only like 4 books' files in the existing patch I think?Now, what I personally want most is a way to extract and re-insert the music files because the quality on them is atrocious vs the official soundtrack...
Quote from: LunaireticOmega on March 14, 2022, 11:59:08 PMI actually have two physical copies of Arcturus JP DVD, one open (and complete) and one factory sealed. I could probably extract the soundtrack's files if you find a way to replace them in-game.
Quote from: Sara-chan on March 15, 2022, 01:26:32 AMI'll have to look into the animation editing again -- it really has been an extremely long time for me.As for this at least, I can say I do have the files extracted (adp format) and understand what the files actually are -- they're basically IMA APC ADPCM, though I don't have any encoder for that codec.
Quote from: Sara-chan on March 14, 2022, 11:36:40 PMA lot of issues come from filename localization problems, if I recall.We had all of the books working just fine in-game, for instance -- the issue there ended up being that you needed to actually use the Korean item names as filenames and run the game in Korean locale (or use mangled versions of them converted to other codepages when running in those codepages). There's only like 4 books' files in the existing patch I think?

Quote from: LunaireticOmega on March 15, 2022, 04:48:28 AMWhat I'd like to know, because I want to play it on a modern OS (and speedrun it too), is why Arcturus's performance is laughably bad in Windows 10.
