In Topic: Dragon Quest X is in development for the Nintendo NX

07 August 2016 - 09:02 PM

Hopefully, Nintendo could persuade Square Enix to let them be the publisher for Dragon Quest X in North America and Europe (though I wouldn't bet on it personally).

 

Yeah that has almost no chance of happening. The fan base for DQ just doesn't exist in NA/EU in sufficient quantities to warrant an MMO release. We're lucky we even get any releases we get now.


In Topic: Dragon's Den Team

All, with the surge of new players there are a few things to remind members of the team/den. Any of these infrastructures could lead to your account being investigated and subsequent ban. However, it can also lead to all of us getting banned too. Things to avoid:

  • Naming your character inappropriately, This means any profane words, but it also means names that are repetitive/sequential characters
  • Speaking English in a setting where you don't explicitly know players (local and party chat etc)
  • Harassing other players
  • Utilizing macros or turbo controls
  • Altering game files
  • Failure to observe common courtesy in Japan. That means failure to respond to cheers with "arigatou" and yoroshikuonegashimasu. Failure to use honorifics such as san and sama when addressing players you don't know or have not been authorized to address without such honorifics. Utilizing the proper kana/kanji

To the common American MMO player some of this may seem extreme, but it's not in Japan. If you don't understand these guidelines then ask. We in the team are there to assist each other. Ultimately, when you break these rules you risk our accounts too, so we all have a personal stake in abiding to these rules.

 

This should be in its own stickied thread, where we can flesh it out a little bit. Every JP MMO I've ever played (and there's a lot of them) have these kinds of etiquette expectations.


In Topic: Version 3.0 information

11 December 2015 - 04:05 PM

- Monsters within the tower are getting an HP, Attack, Defense rebalance. This could be good or bad, but they definitely need it. Fixed damage was the only way for some classes to dent the enemies.

- Updates to AI skill/equip selection.

 

Hopefully those Double Silver Devil fights won't be unnecessarily hard now. They can wipe you even if your entire party is playing correctly.

 

Maybe the set AI won't be completely useless now.


In Topic: Version 3.0 information

One of these amazing locations can be yours for the low, low, low price of 100,000,000 gold (price doesn't decline over time). Enjoy!

Holy bejesus that price. Can anyone say money sink?

 

Thanks for all the 3.2 information, krw! I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we really appreciate the effort you put into doing this every time.


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.

 

*images*

 

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!
