Quote from: Chaos Rush on January 26, 2020, 01:35:32 AMHi everyone, even though I am no longer working on these, I still lurk on RHDN and thought I'd mention something regarding an update another user wanted to do.User redmagejoe is working on fixing all of FF2's bugs in the vanilla game, and with my permission, has also made a v1.8 for the FF2 translation that fixes some typos.Also in order to clear up some miscommunication, I am no longer working on these, but I have no issue with people that want to update these further - you do not need my permission. My intent was to pass these projects on to the community.So to be clear, any further updates are not done by me, and also anyone is free to update them. Should you do so, I hope that people understand that these patches are meant to follow the terminology used by whatever is the most recent official version of FF1-3 by Square Enix, and I know that some people may disagree with the official terminology for valid reasons, but for the sake of consistency I hope people consider what my original intent was for these translations - pretend as if this is something Square Enix wouldn't mind putting out and live up to those standards. If you want to use these as a base for a new project with a different goal, then go ahead, but make it clear that it's a separate project rather than a continuation/update of these translations.I won't be active much on RHDN but I might occasionally post to give my two cents on something.Should anyone want to further update these, it might be worth considering starting a new thread in order to not confuse people since I am no longer working on these.

Quote from: Chaos Rush on July 05, 2019, 02:14:23 AMThank you for pointing that out. Can you confirm that you're playing v1.2? I have a theory on what's causing it (it's probably reading from a DTE char even though I thought I disabled it for battles) but first I want to make sure you have v1.1 or v1.2 because in those versions I fixed the repeated character bug that people were talking about in earlier pages.
Quote from: KIL913 on May 13, 2020, 11:53:00 AMHas this ever been fixed? I know this is almost a dead thread but I'm just wondering if there is still anyone who are polishing FFI and FFIII's text bugs or issues? P.S. Chaos you don't have to reply to my reply as I know you are currently working on your game still, kudos and thanks for all your hard work. I'm just wondering. Thanks!

I played a bit of this game on PC but I hate the look, so I switched to the NES version with Chaos Rush' translation. Great work, the best way to play this in my opinion!My issue is that the more I play, the less I understand the plot. The FFwiki seems to be stating false information as well. It's clear by now that the Flood of Light took place 1000 years before the start of the game. However, the wiki states that Xande's sinking of the surface world/stopping time happened 1000 years before the start as well. The NES version doesn't seem to state the fact that this second event took place so long ago. I feel Xande's stopping of time only happened shortly before the start of the game. Another thing the wiki says is that Xande was responsible for rising the Floating Continent into the air. However, the game seems to state it's the Ancients that did this, before the Flood of Light happened. In the end, I can't seem to piece together when Xande decided to unleash earthquakes and sink the surface/freeze time at all. It doesn't seem sensible if that would happen around the same time as the Flood of Light that destroyed the civilization of the Ancients. The Floating Continent also was already around when Xande did all this. Anyone who can explain this all to me?
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on May 18, 2020, 05:02:22 AMThanks a lot for the summary! So, the order of events is basically: - thousands of years ago: Ancients, Floating Continent created, Flood of Light destroys the Ancients on the surface, they move to the Floating Continent- (One) thousand years ago: Xande receives his gift, gets mad and uses the Earth Crystal to get his immortality back (by sinking stuff, causing earthquake on surface and all that)- Recent/currently: Four Warriors of Light 'awaken,' events of FF3Are Noah and his apprentices Ancients themselves too?
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on May 18, 2020, 06:19:51 AMThat's really interesting. This site states something else, but I already kinda suspected it wasn't 'right,' since according to it, Xande did nothing for thousand years after being given mortality. http://chrysaliswiki.com/encyclopedia:timeline-of-the-world-in-ffiiiIt's super interesting how vague the story of FF3 is. Most of the older RPGs had very simplistic stories.
Quote from: Chaos Rush on May 18, 2020, 03:13:38 AMHi everyone, I still log in occasionally. I'm still working on my indie game, thought I'd answer a few questions.Redmagejoe has taken over FF2 and has a separate thread for it. To my knowledge FF1 and FF3 haven't been updated since I last did in October. As for that bug, I believe it was the same bug as another issue that someone brought up where certain battle messages wouldn't display correctly, which was fixed. I am not sure if it is connected to the same issue that you are describing but if that issue is in the current version then I apologize.Is there anyway I can fix this myself?
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on May 18, 2020, 07:08:13 AMAah yes, that makes the most sense. Thanks a lot for taking the time to solve this mess.
