Dragon Geo | Android Map App

Thanks to Yoon for letting us know about a new Android map app that he has created, featuring content from multiple versions of Dragon Quest 1 - 6.  Here is what he had to say about it:


DRAGON GEO is an interactive map app (not a game) that is akin to Google Maps. DRAGON GEO allows for viewing world, region, castle, town, dungeon, and shrine maps from Dragon Warrior / Quest I-VI. It also includes maps from the remake versions that later appeared on the Super Famicom, Game Boy Color, and Nintendo DS. As an added nostalgic touch, the entire interface uses the old Dragon Warrior command window style, complete with music and sound effects from the original Dragon Warrior / Quest games.

More about the origin of DRAGON GEO: Project Geo was originally used as a way for me to get familiar with Android development. The Dragon Geo concept was inspired by Google's 8-Bit Dragon Quest Google Maps April Fools' joke from two years ago. During development, I?ve learned quite a bit about developing on the Android platform, such as programming gestures, loading and playing media files, displaying large images, UX design, handling memory optimization issues, and much more. Although I still have far to go in terms of Android development (and mobile development in general), I?m proud to have been able to put out a quality first app that I quite enjoyed working on in the available spare time I had.
I?d like to thank the sites & people (especially DRAGON'S DEN & KING ZENITH, many thanks!) that have made map resources available online.  Without them, DRAGON GEO would not be possible:

  • D-Navi
  • Dragon?s Den
  • FlyingArmor
  • King Zenith
  • NES Maps
  • NES SNES Sprites
  • Realm of Darkness
  • RPG Legion
  • Sprite Database
  • x_loto
  • Zophar?s Domain

DRAGON GEO is now available for download on the Google Play Store. If you have an Android device, be sure to check it out! I'll be making improvements to the app from time to time.

Dragon Quest Mini FAQ - Pot/Barrel/Cupboard/Barrel Item Levels


Thanks to ignasia7 for the Mini FAQ about the Pot/Barrel/Cupboard/Barrel Item Levels. Below is a bit of an excerpt from the FAQ on the purpose of the information contained in the FAQ. The FAQ is listed in the DQ9 submenu or you can view it here.

What is the purpose of this FAQ?
Simple, there's a list for every blue chest and their level, and the
corresponding items each level has, along with what %, all provided by the
venerable yab. Also provided is a list of the pot/barrel/cupboard/drawer
ranks and the items that go along with it, along with the chance to find
anything. However no list was given as to which pot/barrel/cupboard/drawer
was what rank.

So yab produced a code to break this down, but never had a use for it until
I decided to do my own low level run, and had considered figuring out each
on my own. Suffice to say, 2 hours of just attempting this in one room in
the observatory, and the pain of attempting this the whole game was too much
so yab gave me his personalized Action Replay code. The rest is history.

So why again would I care about what's in each of these random generating
storage devices? Especially given the quality of their materials are lacking
compared to Blue Chests?
Simple! Mini Medals and specialized runs like Speed Runs! Mini Medals in
the main game are pretty scarce. Only 20 are available pre-Gitt, and this is
assuming no tags to build the inn, which is where most players will find
themselves. So the only places to find them are Blue Chests and the P/B/C/Ds
in the game.

This is to ensure the ability to maximize Medal finds as one progresses.
So certain unwanted spots can just be...ignored, and other spots can be
looted with glee and a feint hope of those troublesome Medals.

This holds especially true for a Speed Run!
