Hah, fun. We pulled a few thousand downloads on both cinnamonpirate and CoES, ourselves. Thanks for posting the stats, an interesting read.
I must say I'm surprised so many people have been into Der Langrisser. Maybe I'll rethink doing game nobody cares about so I can get more than a few dozen people to come in for my translations. laugh
And they said all the big name games were done already.
Warsong was a major cult classic on the Genesis, so it isn't too
surprising how popular its' sequel is. And really, how many SNES games can you name where you can choose to fight for light, imperial, chaos, or just say fuck everyone and be your own master, betraying everyone in the entire game all at once?
As far as big name games, I don't think they are all
done, but they're really getting close. I think the only big name game remaining is Far East of Eden Zero, which is about as popular as Star Ocean.
Of course, there are a lot of gems that people don't know about, like Chaos Seed and the Dai Kaijuu games. And then there are the really, really awful games that people will do just because there's nothing left, like Starlight: Traverse and Prarie, BAZOO, Granhistoria, etc.
We may disagree on exactly how many good games are left, but I think we can both agree that all of the really major games that would attract people outside our own community are quickly dwindling. The absolutely massive games the translation scene brought in, were names like:
- Final Fantasy V
- Secret of Mana 2
- Tales of Phantasia
- Star Ocean
- Dragon Quest V
- Dragon Quest VI
And now, we are working on games like:
- Dual Orb I
- Bakumatsu Kourinden Oni II
- Silva Saga II
If you ask RPG fans who were around in the mid 1990s in the English-speaking areas of the world, nearly all can tell you about the former, but I bet you virtually none are familiar with the latter. It doesn't necessarily make them worse games, but they're usually of a lower quality level than the big name ones. The games being worked on are just going to continue to get worse, as we continue to cherry pick the best ones remaining to work on.
mwuahha i got it i was just checking around the message boards at gamefaqs and someone said to try to name it just DL_J
and try it and it seems to have worked.
It's because you have file extensions turned off. You were naming it dl_j.smc, but the filename already ended in .smc, so Windows was actually naming it dl_j.smc.smc. You should probably ask Windows not to hide file extensions from you.
