Quote from: Special on April 15, 2021, 11:06:09 PMOnly had time to check the readme of this so far, but I lied. There is absolutely no way I could "wing it" without a proper guide, some of those new names are completely alien to me. (not a good or bad thing, just saying.)
Quote from: zarkon on April 16, 2021, 06:16:37 PMCheers to everyone who worked on this. Will dive back in to DQM this weekend.I recall the good endgame skills being HellBlast, BigBang, QuadHits, HealUsAll, Revive, TwinHits, GigaSlash, Ironise, UltraDown, Defence, Increase, DeMagic & MagicWall. Will have to try to work out the combination paths again

Quote from: Chicken Knife on April 18, 2021, 06:44:00 AMYou seem to really know what you're doing for someone who hasn't played this in 20 years! Very glad you are enjoying this version!
QuoteThis game made a huge impact on me back then. The systems were so complex, it was the game that drove me online to gamefaqs so that I could try to understand how everything worked back then, after I'd made so many wrong turns. The way they set up breeding still kinda blows my mind.
Quote from: Chicken Knife on April 18, 2021, 08:36:19 AMIt really is a brilliant breeding system. I kind of find it more satisfying than the class systems in the main series. As for me, I only discovered this game as a result of nejimakipiyo's constant insistence a couple years ago. I would have absolutely loved to play this as a kid, but it still managed to make me feel like one in my late 30's. The biggest shock to me is that it feels like a true Horii product, a valid alternative branch of the main series. I've always seen the DQ spin offs as games where Horii may have lent his name or sat in a couple meetings, but not true works of his. That isn't the case here. From the story to the gameplay design to the NPC writing itself, his fingerprints are everywhere. I really encourage you or anyone else to keep talking to the NPCs all around GreatTree repeatedly, especially after the quakes. You really get entwined with these characters and their relationships. There's something about how Horii writes NPC text that is simply on another level from any other RPG series imo. It's what makes this process of retranslation such a joy rather than a tiresome chore for us.
Quote from: zarkon on April 18, 2021, 01:48:17 PMYes, the writing is great. Far superior to the Joker games.Have noticed one issue though, when you talk to the person in the bottom right of the tournament signin screen and choose yes, half way through the explanation the game serious bugs out:I've done a bit of testing, when I saw this issue I was rank B, but I did have some old save states, and it seems this only starts happening after you clear the gate that gives you access to challenge C rank (So just after the DeadTree King mocks you).I'm using Gambatte, but have tested in BGB with the sav file and the issue persists.One thing though, I have been liberally using save states because I'm too lazy to use the journal that often, so it could do with someone replicating the issue just in case my save is naturally borked due to that.April 18, 2021, 07:18:18 PM - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)Just cleared S rank, the dialogue has changed and the bug no longer happens.
Quote from: nejimakipiyo on April 18, 2021, 08:22:38 PMEdit: Never mind, I found the issue! Thanks for your detailed bug report, zarkon. An update will be issued shortly so that this doesn't happen again. I'm glad you're enjoying the game so far (despite that ) and I'm impressed with how fast you're making progress!
Quote from: nejimakipiyo on April 19, 2021, 09:14:18 PMThanks once again! I submitted another patch update. Apparently I didn't talk to the Cursed Receptionist as much as I should have when play testing. So, you're waiting until you can grind against StrayMetals, right? I'm curious if you're using the optional exp reversion patch or not.
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on April 19, 2021, 01:34:47 AMBeen playing Pokemon FRLG lately, and planning to pick up the rest of the Gen. 3-5 games. How does DQM actually compare to those games? Does it end up feeling more like DQ or like Pokemon?I played lots of DQ11 but sadly, I couldn't stay invested for the entirety and quit during Sniflheim. I'm beginning to wonder if DQ is really my thing. As of now, the only DQ I fully finished is the first one on SNES. That one felt the most unique.
