Topics I've Started

Learned something new about DQIV NES

22 September 2014 - 06:34 AM

Just when I thought I had the game figured out, I get a bit of a surprise.  So I'm playing through DQ IV NES with my five year old daughter.  We made the hero female and it's actually the first time I play through the NES version as a female.  Anyway, we get to chapter five and I pick up the Feather Hat at the beginning.  Much to my dismay, the female hero cannot equip it!  I'm pretty sure in the DS/Mobile version the female hero can equip the Feather Hat as I seem to remember doing so when I played through the game with my wife.  It's nice to learn something new after all these years.

FFXV Trailer

Looks like FF XV will be a cross between Xenoblade Chronicles and Need for Speed, with the Backstreet Boys as the main characters.  Maybe this will be the one to finally kill SE.

Any programmers here? Animators? Anyone with game development experi

I've been mulling over a project for a while, but it's not something I can do alone.  It's Dragon Quest related which is why I posted it here.  Although I write software for a living, coding games is completely different.  I'm the guy that can write all the code for say the battle system, but I couldn't animate a stick man if my life depended on it.  Anyway, I'd like to see if there's any interest in starting up a community project.  I don't want to say too much more right now until I see what the interest is like an what kind of skill sets we have around here.  Right now I'm only looking for people that actually know how to program and do 3D animation.  We'll eventually need someone for music among other things, but I'll worry about that later.  Also this project will not be something to make money off of, but rather gain some experience and provide something special for the community for fans both new and old to the Dragon Quest series.  Let me know if you're interested and what kind of skills you have and we'll go from there.


EDIT:  I guess I should mention that my primary language is Java.  I've worked with C/C++ but it's been a long time.  The nice thing about using Java is that it would be quite easy to make an Android port.  I've played around with a few free libraries like libGDX which can also be used for an iOS port.  http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/

Adventures of Link - NES

31 July 2014 - 08:01 AM

Dusted off the black sheep the other day and started a new game. I forgot how hard and unforgiving this game is. It is however, very satisfying once you accomplish something. I seem to have a habit of getting game over right before a palace boss or an item like the hammer. The hammer was a real piss off because I could see it but the axe wielding maniac finished me off. I finally managed to get the hammer and beat the second palace though. Hopefully the third palace doesn't ruin me.
