Nearing the end of a playthrough on the 210313 version, and I've discovered a number of errors and issues.
Given all of the combined patches, I can't be totally certain what patch is responsible for what, but I'll guess where I can.
(And if there's some way to output what options I have checked, I'd be happy to include that as well)
Apologies if these have already been reported, this thread is a long one!Reborn Translation:
If you join up with the girl, but go your separate ways when you try to go to the Dwarf Village in Gaia's Navel, when you eventually go to the Haunted Forest and fight the two werewolves, if you talk to the girl during the fight, her name will appear as "Girl" instead of the name you'd already given her. After the fight, she'll go back to having the name you gave her.
In the ruins near Northtown, if you talk to one of the masked people, it'll include the boy's name along with the "....", making it look like he's being the silent one, instead of the person in the mask.
In the Underground City, neither Krissie or the Resistance Soldier tell you about the color code needed to progress further on.
(I forget which of them is supposed to tell you in the original game.)
When the "Voice from above" orders the destruction of the Mana Tree, you may want to change "Main gun" to "Main cannon". It's admittedly preference, but if you ask me, it flows better. Just a suggestion. Level 9 Weapons Progression Balance:
In the very first room of the Underground City, after opening the chest for the Boomerang Orb, instead of disappearing, the chest stays there. If you open it again, it gives you ANOTHER Boomerang Orb. Only THEN will it disappear. Thinking it was a glitch, I only picked it up once, but now I seem to be short a Boomerang Orb! So I either missed one elsewhere, or it didn't spawn where it was supposed to be. I suppose it could have something to do with the Don't Despawn Chests When Full
patch, but I don't know for sure.
I realize having the Mana Tree giving you the final Sword Orb says "Sword Power at Maximum!", but it doesn't actually say you have the final orb. That may want to be cleared up, or, even better, have it automatically re-forged into the final Mana Sword. Being able to see your sword change into the final, green form may add impact to the moment.Remove Empire Castle Gate Permanently:
I picked up the Sword Orb in the Emperor's Throne Room, the readme says it's supposed to despawn the Sword Orb in the Grand Palace, but it showed up in the area between Lumina and Shade's areas. When I first entered the room, it wasn't there. I come back, and it's spawned in the water, JUST out of reach. I re-enter the room again, and it's finally reachable. But re-forging this sword only gives me the Dragon Buster, so I either missed another Sword Orb elsewhere, or else it didn't spawn where it was supposed to.
The hint that the kid in Northtown gives about the box in the Emperor's Throne Room might want to be changed a bit. Something like "I got to go see the Emperor's Throne Room once! There's a strange looking chest in there. I wonder what's in it?". Something like that. Seems like something a kid would say. Just a suggestion!
I also noticed in this playthrough that Aegagropilon went a little crazy casting Burst on people. Not sure what patch caused that, but it was done enough to be noteworthy.
Given that I applied all my patches through the Turbo patcher, I'm assuming they were patched in the correct order, so I don't think that would explain any of the errors I'd had.
Anyway, I hope these error reports and suggestions help!
Thanks to all the romhackers and translators for all your hard work!!!
EDIT: One of the patches added a round reddish-brown dot to the New Game / Continue screen. Anyone know what that's there for? Thanks!
