Quote from: Masaru on July 03, 2021, 10:53:19 PMIf you want to be consistent with your project i don't have problem, but it's not the best idea either.

Quote from: RedDogs on July 07, 2021, 12:30:42 AMAfter sampling some your other works, I'm super excited to see that your team is working on DQ1&2 SNES. The amount of polish you all put into your work is absolute professional quality work. Unlike that other patch recently released here. Keep up the good work, looking forward to this
Quote from: Chicken Knife on July 03, 2021, 04:29:47 PMI wanted to get some input from the general public on a matter I've been thinking over for our DQI&II Super NES project: NPC dialogue formatting.
Quote from: nejimakipiyo on July 07, 2021, 09:34:14 AMUnfortunately, this means passing up on a DQ quirk. But it's a small sacrifice to ultimately have better-flowing text, imo. Especially in games that have a limit of 18 characters per line.
Quote from: Chicken Knife on July 07, 2021, 09:08:48 AMThank you for the kind words. I've had several people PM me lately with similar thoughts. While others seem to prefer making superficial judgments and dismissing our translations as "vanity projects", it's nice to see that so many people are willing to get past their nostalgia and invest the time in assessing the quality of our work.
Quote from: tc on July 07, 2021, 11:36:48 AMIt is amazing how divided the audience is. Square Enix for the most part has moved on. Modern material tends to disregard Dragon Warrior and its fans, at times simply not even acknowledging the previous translations existed.
Quote from: urufu on July 10, 2021, 01:56:44 PMThank you for your great work.I did Dragon Quest V translation many years ago and I feel always proud of what we did for DQ fans.
Quote from: lilpuddy31 on July 11, 2021, 09:10:26 PMIf I may ask (and if this question was already answered I apologize), but why keep the DW style title screens instead of recreating the DQ screens?
Quote from: Chicken Knife on July 12, 2021, 09:17:49 AMWhen I first started these these projects, changing the name with the original title screen was the extent of my technical ability (and I still required a fair amount of help.) At this point, if I was able to devote the requisite time and energy to swapping in the DQ1 and DQ2 Japanese title screens, I'm guessing it could be done. I think I would want these patches to always include the two options. The reason being that the western title sequence of DQ2 is a substantial upgrade to the Japanese one, and the beautiful western DQ3 title sequence compares favorably to the black screen with white text and no fanfare in the Japanese version. Since the Japanese title screen was cut due to severe space limitations, I'd probably need 3 versions with that game to satisfy everyone. Our existing modified western style version, the true black screen Japanese version, and finally something that approximates would could have been had they done a title screen in Japan. A fair amount of work, and I'm slow with the technical stuff. Should this be a top priority item for us? Open to feedback.At one point, I saw an image of a "might have been" Japanese DQ3 title screen made within the limitations of the NES graphics output. It looked really cool, and I've never found it again. Would love to track that down at some point. As for DQ4, for the first time in the series, I feel like the western title screen is a major downgrade compared to the original. It's the beginning of a new trilogy, and I would *not* want to release a title screen for DQ4 in the western style.

Quote from: Choppasmith on July 13, 2021, 05:44:30 AMWhoops, yeah that's much trickier than I thought. My best guess would be, assuming they're not shared with other map graphics. Remove the "slab" and have the tiles of the JP DQ logo reveal themselves than have it hard cut to showing the IV. That's my best idea.
Quote from: Chicken Knife on July 14, 2021, 07:30:33 AMI was just checking around regarding Holy Water. I'm seeing online that Torneko's wife sells it? Confusing, since I thought she only sold what you give her to sell, and then she switches up to running a vault.
