#475286 I really want to play DQV PS2 Version but unsure of what I can do

Posted by King Zenith on 05 October 2016 - 09:49 AM

I know you mentioned that your computer doesn't do well with DS emulation, and I completely understand why that would make you think PS2 emulation is definitely out, but I would actually encourage you to give it a shot.  DQ5 for PS2 is incredibly light on PC resources, and will often play at full speed (or nearly) on crappy computers, where a more resource-intensive game (like DQ8) would definitely be out of the question.


I think it has a decent chance of working well for you.  If you need help with emulator configuration, there are plenty here that would be willing to help (including myself).  It may not be viable, like you suspect, but I know from my experience that it runs way better than expected on crappy PCs.

#472551 What's New with you?

Posted by King Zenith on 19 September 2016 - 02:06 PM

That's infinitely better than a "no".  Sorry that the process is taking this long.  Hope they don't make you wait much longer before delivering the good news.

#471949 Do you think there will stock issues at launch?

Posted by King Zenith on 16 September 2016 - 01:05 PM

On a side note, I guess there is no strategy guide available(the clerk checked to see).


I do remember seeing a thread about that not way too long ago(where people sent emails), so I'm not really complaining(Money is a little tight currently).


There's a pretty stellar guide on GameFAQs that's in the works.  Looks like Ignasia7 is hard at work for us ;)

#468910 So far I have made only a farewell post, so here goes. Solutus casts H

Posted by King Zenith on 22 August 2016 - 07:33 AM

Solutus! Welcome back!  Glad to see you have returned safely from your latest adventures.  I was beginning to worry that the Archfiend might have feasted on your innards.

#468311 What kind of Marketing do you expect in the next few months?

Posted by King Zenith on 17 August 2016 - 07:15 AM

Hey Platty, I'll see your creepy Westy shot and raise you one photo of Westy in the bath...





I also managed to sneak a picture of Westy on the toilet, but he stole my camera, cast zoom, and I haven't seen him since.

#466182 DQ/DW weapon images

Posted by King Zenith on 20 July 2016 - 09:13 AM

Ok, I spent more time on this than I had intended, but they are done now, to the best of my ability.  I have ripped all weapons from the game, including the non-sword ones like the Poison Needle and Kitten Claw etc...


As you have seen, many of the swords are cut-off due to the limited size of the graphic panel that they flash across the screen when a battle begins and ends.  In some cases there is nothing I could do about that (Zenithian Sword for example), but for any sword that is symmetric, I have cloned the top half (and flipped vertically) so we can see the full sword.  Hopefully I did an OK job at that.


Anyway, here are the weapon images:


Basic Weapons:


Copper Sword



Steel Broadsword




Astraea's Abacus




Poison Needle




Kitten Claw




Puppy Paw





Mirror Swords:





Aurora Blade




Fire Element:


Fire Blade




Blazing Blade




Wrath of Helios




Dragovian King Sword




Ice Element:


Frost Blade




Blizzard Blade




Wrath of Boreas




Zenithian Sword




Lightning Element:


Lightning Blade



Thunderbolt Blade




Wrath of Zeus



Sword of Kings




"Special" Swords / Weapons:


Rusty old Sword



Metal King Sword



Orichalcum Stick





Dragon Warrior Sword




Death Bringer



Death Bringer's Shade

#463690 With this post, I do humbly...

Posted by King Zenith on 23 June 2016 - 09:42 AM

King Zenith are you calling for a recount with those numbers ;)


Ha ha, no it's all good.  That was really fascinating to see though, so thanks!  What's most interesting from that is converting it to the percentage of overall posts that someone makes in that topic.  For example, Democrobot has made more than 20% of his lifetime posts in that topic.  I think he has the highest percentage among the top two pages of forum member post-counter leaders. 


Anyway, thanks again!  That was cool to see.

#462523 DQ 1, 2, and 3 not working on Samsung Galaxy S7 ***RESOLVED***

Posted by King Zenith on 16 June 2016 - 09:48 AM

I just upgraded my phone as well and I was a bit worried about this.  As luck would have it, I have had no issue at all.  All DQ mobile games work great now.  I upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S2X running Android 4.0.4 to an LG G4 running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). 


When you say you transferred your apps over, did you do that directly via something like Mobile Transfer, or did you just re-download the apps from the play store again?  I used the latter approach (understanding that my save files would not transfer over for DQ1,2 or 3... the rest have cloud saves).  I wonder if doing a clean re-install would fix this?  That being said, I have seen plenty of people who seem to be installing this for the first time that have the same issue as you.

#461107 Question About Dragon Quest 2 SNES

Posted by King Zenith on 07 June 2016 - 07:21 AM

Sometimes I find that playing a game with the help of a guide can make it a little bit harder.  What I mean is that by eliminating more of the walking around and discovery parts of the game (which can be fun), you cruise through too quickly and easily and find yourself underleveled for what lies ahead.  This often leads people to grind, which they may then find boring.


Definitely agree with ShdwDragn about using the maps and guides only once you have given it a good shot on your own and just need to get unstuck.


In any case, I hope you enjoy the game.  Good luck.

#458708 How did you find the Den?

Posted by King Zenith on 10 May 2016 - 09:35 AM

I found the site in 2006 while looking for information on fan translations of DQ5 and 6 for SFC.  I didn't join until two years later, when I starting out with DW7 for the first time.  One of my first posts on the forums got a pretty nasty response from a long-time forum member (whom I now haven't seen around here in years).  I stuck around anyway (this IS the internet after all) and tried to make posts that were a more significant contribution to the community.  Got a couple of "Dwaine posts" in response to some of them, but I quickly learned his sense of humor and have called this place my internet home ever since.
