Quote from: Thanatos-Zero on June 10, 2020, 12:43:35 PMIt seems RedScorpion and I helped to inspire this project.I sort of wish we succeeded in the first place and in time.But you know what? You will do a far more better job, than we did.By the way, are there any plans to make foreshadowing towards Anise the witch?It is said, that she herself, always grows strong whenever Mana grows weak.According to Dawn of Mana and Trials of Mana, she seeks to flood all worlds with the Dark Echoes of Mavolia, destroying them the process.
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on June 10, 2020, 03:12:58 PMMeh. Think it'd be much better to just write what they were actually trying to write (at which they already failed horribly originally), instead of adding in stuff from later games. It'd be good to add stuff confirmed missing or unused but planned back in, though.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMIIRC, you were part of the many GameFAQs discussions back in the day on the game's development. I was a lurker on those threads, but it was part of the inspiration for my site, which indirectly led to this project.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMI am hopelessly ignorant about the rest of the Mana series. My philosophy is more in line with Thirteen 1355, especially since the Mana games are only loosely based on each other.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMYes, but only from books and the remake, sadly. Despite years of exhaustive research, I have never found any prerelease elements that can be realized, unless you count dummied animations/items. A significant portion of one prerelease area can be reconstructed by joining screenshots, but it's still incomplete and we don't know where it fit in. I think it was a test map.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMThere is evidence that you were supposed to be able to start with the girl or sprite instead of the boy, similar to Trials of Mana.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMFrom prerelease maps, we know what areas looked like in development, but have no idea what was actually there.
Quote from: ManaRedux on June 10, 2020, 06:41:41 PMSome have suggested that I "run wild" and expand the scenario based on what I know, but I'm sure you can imagine the complexities of such a problem are insurmountable, and the final product would be at best, depressingly arbitrary.
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on June 11, 2020, 06:40:07 AMMy current issue with Secret of Mana is not just the writing, but also the story being quite incoherent (didn't I read that on Redux? The seeds sealed/unsealed and needing to be sealed/unsealed). I don't know how much would need to be changed to make the story at least work, but maybe it's possible to aim for that? The Mana series' stories confuse me, if anything.
Quote from: Heaven Piercing Man on June 12, 2020, 04:28:17 AMWhat is the money called in Japanese?
Quote from: ManaRedux@Queue, my Japanese books finally arrived today! Took me almost two months to procure them. Some really great material in here.
Quote from: Queue on June 12, 2020, 03:03:33 PMNeat! And a that's a relief.I've been working on the next pass at the integration script, to have it better handle how it decides to split up text between boxes, etc. and how it handles mismatches in how some text is laid out by row in the spreadsheet. My goal is still to need as little specialized markup as possible.For testing I was try to make it use the second draft text, then fall back on the first draft text where the second draft wasn't done, but that was proving to be needlessly complex and ultimately a waste as the second draft gets finished and the next draft (or whatever) is worked on. So that was sort've a frustrating waste of effort. -_-
Quote from: Thanatos-Zero on June 12, 2020, 10:10:47 AMI do not know, what the money was called in Seiken Densetsu 2, but in future games the currency is called Lucre.Neither do I know, if it is a localised name or of the japanese original.
Quote from: Thanatos-Zero on June 11, 2020, 06:52:01 AMThat is one of the things I love to see resolved in a proper fashion.Also, there is this burning question I have for a while.Why does our heroic trio go to the empire in the first place?At this point in the game, we as the player lack a proper motivation in-universe to go there.In Trials of Mana for example, we were always pointed towards the locations of the mana stones for to gather the mana spirits.
