In Topic: Could someone please translate the newest config menu?

24 October 2015 - 11:56 AM

So, before I go through and put the work into translating the whole thing, I'd like to know if my method works for you guys (because despite my attempts, I can't actually edit the text in the program). Basically, I intend on uploading side-by-side comparison pictures of each screen. The final product would probably be a PDF or something, but here I'm just going to upload a couple screens.




These were done in MSPaint, lol. But if this works for everybody, I'll probably put a little more time and effort into it and make it look nice in GIMP.


EDIT: Just realized I typed "ONLINE" in the logo instead of "CONFIG". Oops. I guess I still had the window title bar in my head, and since this was just a proof-of-concept, I didn't double check everything.

I think that's perfect, Erdrick. Thanks a lot for your help and effort in this!

Clear up to near the end of v2.3 to get the Alchemy pot.


Metal King Coin:

20x Metal Slime Coin + 10x flour (150 hours)

4x LMS Coin + 10x flour (150 hours)


Get the alchemy pot tired by doing quick 20 hour alchemy recipes, perk it up to reduce the time to 75 hours by setting it out for people to pet in Megistoris server 1, and you can make 2 per week. Set and forget it but don't forget to check in to replace the contents of the alchemy pot.


List of players not capped on everything that could do this as they have cleared v2.3 and would have 8 Metal King coins to run every week if they worked together:

- Avenger

- Claire

- Phanir

- Polantaris

...and many more.


Your frustration is due to a lack of people and too many of the people available not working together and complaining whenever anything has to come out of their pocket.


What happens when that happens? You end up doing solo grinding for hours and hours without end because you want to level and that's why Bazaks are somehow still a thing even though it is easy enough to anyone to earn several hundred thousand per week (buy a 40k daily every day) to provide more than enough funds for running a fair amount of Metal Kings (+ LMS coins if you want extra) every week.



I can offer some relief the weekend after the next level cap is released, but you guys really, really should start stockpiling Metal King coins if you have the alchemy pot and haven't started to already.


To be fair, I completely forgot about Metal King Coins, but that's because I've been stockpiling them since Fortune Teller was revealed so that I could quick level it to the cap. I have like 22-23 coins. Of course, I have less to complain about because of that, but it's still a very grindy game even with them. Plus it doesn't help that ever since Metal King Coins became alchemizable, the price for Metal Slime Coins (and now Liquid Metal Coins) have shot up through the roof and I'm not all that rich.


When Fortune Teller gets released, if I level it to cap and still have coins left over I'm definitely going to be using them on my other classes, but there's no way it's going to get me to cap across all the classes (even if I didn't use any on Fortune Teller), and after that I'm back where I started.


I do agree that a lot of people complain about everything coming out of their pockets, though. I had quite a few Liquid Metal Coins just sitting around until recently (when they became Metal King Coins), and I gave up on asking if anyone wanted to do runs because it was basically implied that they would supply very little, if any at all, and I just don't have the money to do that, and it's not really fair to anyone who would provide for an entire group like that. Phanir and I have done runs together a few times but it's a hell of a lot more productive with a full party, which doesn't seem to happen.

But I'm really asking if they did anything to shake up the "kill Bazaks" leveling grind from a year or so ago.

Not really. That's why I don't have many classes at 85 (and honestly why I don't play as much as I should/used to). It's just too boring after a while. There might be a new target that people set for mass grinding, but other than just grinding the same monster, whatever it is, over and over, I'm not sure that there's much else when it comes to leveling. Once in a while you can happen upon a good lab grinding team, but for the most part it's just that.

I appreciate the effort but I didn't want to have to switch my OS to Japanese.  I figured someone would already have it running in Japanese or at least have the translation?



As Bunk has mentioned, you just have to set the time on your system clock to JST.


Don't ask me why that makes a difference, it just does.

I received a quest to hunt 8 Chimeras, which I have done, but I don't remember where I got the quest! Could someone help me figure out where I need to go to get this quest cleared?





Also, I've noticed on the forum that the "sweat & tears" quest (Quest 129) is really important, so I've started it, but I can't seem to figure out how to complete it.

  • I've gone to the material shop (素材屋) and started the quest
  • I'm wearing the material shop hat (素材屋のぼうし)
  • I've been fighting enemies that are stronger than me for a long time

From what I had gathered, I'm doing everything correctly, but the quest doesn't seem to be progressing or anything. Could someone explain how to do the quest, in detail?




When you check up on a monster before fighting it (you can use the talk button and get a popup related to their strength compared to you) it should say, I believe, 格下と表示されたモンスター以外. If it doesn't then they're not strong enough.
