Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Well it's something that's going to bug you until the end of time then, because that's how video games are now. If it really bugs you, then you're letting something bug you that's outside of your control. Dude, I'm not an idiot. I've noticed that "that's how video games are now." And I'm ...

I have a whole sequel to DS mapped out in my head to make it line up with Lunar 1. Though it'll probably stay there.

Re: Crypto currency

G1! How have you been? What art???

Re: Playing Through the Saturn Version for the First Time

By "such a change" you mean Nash being an informant the whole time as opposed to just at the end? I'm confused since you then mentioned a portrait swap. There are certainly lots of places where WD changed the portraits but they generally aren't major scenes, just a face more appropriate fo...

It took me a bit to get used to Kyle's hair being black in SSSC. And I still think of Fresca as having green hair rather than blue.

Re: Playing Through the Saturn Version for the First Time

I don't think there's anything particularly unusual about the Meryod bridge collapse and the order you get characters in. I spent some time mapping out the dialogue in all the different orders you could get them (and some of the lines don't quite flow in English because the check whether someone els...

Re: Dragon Aura 1.2* - L2EBC Save Editor (UPDATED AGAIN!)

...No, dammit. I thought I did, but apparently I only saved a copy of this thread and never got around to grabbing the zip file. I'm running a search on a decade of backups just in case (was this really that long ago?!), but no luck so far. :/

Re: Has anyone ever tested to see if you can actually pay the million silver to get through the nanza barrier "early"?

I haven't checked that and it would be a bit harder to check, but I'm sure there isn't. There wouldn't be a normal in-game way to get there that early, so there's unlikely to be text for something that would never be seen.

Re: Playing Through the Saturn Version for the First Time

Interesting. I don't know enough about the programming to speculate. But that second photo, of the dialogue...that's not Ghaleon's line, it's Luna's, when she says that they've been forcing her to sing. It's supposed to be her sad face (her previous line is her upset/shouting face). The portraits ar...

Re: Has anyone ever tested to see if you can actually pay the million silver to get through the nanza barrier "early"?

My recollection is that the counter doesn't go that high, but that's something I read rather than something I tried. Pretty sure I've verified that there's no text for any payment to happen. I'll try to remember to check this weekend.

Re: Been ages and ages!

"Challenge" is such an individual thing. For me, it mosty takes the form of trying to see every bit of dialogue possible. In the SegaCD EB, Lucia won't let you level up past 8 in the Spire -- after that, she has a message saying that she's cast a spell to keep the monsters away, but in the...

Re: Playing Through the Saturn Version for the First Time

The regular enemy stat changes are basically: SSSC HP is 90% of SSS's HP SSSC ATK is 144% of SSS's ATK SSSC EXP is 86.3% of SSS's EXP SSSC Silver is 90% of SSS's Silver. Lunar Legend and SSH regular enemies have basically the same stats as SSS, although I don't remember if I've checked every single ...

Re: Hi, I bring greetings and maps

Oh, nice! I'm always glad to have new Lunar stuff to add to my files. :) If it's any consolation, Borgan is even harder in the Japanese game. This is one of the few times that WD made a boss easier, though it might only have been making him cast Gravity Bomb less often. I came really close to beatin...

Re: In defense of Lunar: Legend...

I'm pretty sure they had to, but don't recall if there was an official statement to that effect. But even if NoA was loosening up regarding their console games, the GBA was likely still seen as being primarily for kids. Ubisoft may also have been concerned about the rating; the game came out in NA o...

Re: First playthrough

Reading that reminds me that when I first played SSSC, I thought there'd be a healing statue after fighting Xenobia, so I went forward and...instead had the final battle without doing any healing up. Still won somehow but IIRC it was Nash and Mia doing most of the damage and Kyle healing, which I su...

Re: In defense of Lunar: Legend...

I'd love to hear your comments. It really is an underappreciated game. I really feel for the localizers, though. Not only did they clearly not have enough time (I think only a few months elapsed between the JP and NA games), but they had the same character limit as in the Japanese script -- and 18-2...
