In Topic: Should we start letting NOA know that we want an orchestrated OST?

I stand in the same opinion i had on VII's music change: the change is probably due to the limited space due to the western version having 4 more languages and its not really that important. 


It's not a space issue. They're recorded "midi" tracks, not generated by the system, they take up the same amount of space that orchestrated tracks would.

Limited save slots is so 1990's. Should be able to save to the SD card, not just the 3DS cart, with as many saves as will fit on whatever size card you have. But this poor limited save design is hardly a DQ problem, many games (especially 1st party Nintendo games) are similarly hampered. And yes, I realize the irony of complaining about an outdated way of doing something when talking about DQ...

Belial - Belle Isle

In Topic: I really want to play DQV PS2 Version but unsure of what I can do

14 October 2016 - 12:30 PM

I'm unsure of what I can do...


My computer, despite being a Windows 10, can't even handle a Nintendo DS emulator well without frame skipping, so I have NO faith in a PS2 game fairing well.


I also don't want to see the game entirely in Japanese, so playing it on my PS2 is out, unless there is a homebrew English version of it on disk.


Any suggestions on how I can effectively play the PS2 version of this game in English?


Hopefully you've already gotten it working to your satisfaction in your emulator, but if not, you can play it on a PS2. Burn the patched ISO to a disc and use FreeMCboot or Swap Magic to load it.

In Topic: MIDI Rips? (And possible Soundfont rips)

They are waveform recordings of the synthesized music - in the exact same format as the orchestrated music. This is why it pisses me off so much that they removed the music. 


Fortunately this makes it trivially easy for making a hacked version with the western localization and the orchestrated music from the japanese. Yes, it's already out there, no I'm not linking to it.
