In Topic: People to Play With.

Today, 05:17 AM

This is one of the primary issues you face when playing a game that is not available in the language you speak, in addition to having extra criteria to play (the VPN). It results in a very small population, and many of the players cannot play as frequently as you would like.

 

I've noticed that you're on almost all the time. Unfortunately, many of us cannot do that. For example, I myself often only have time to do my daily quests, before I need to go to bed for work the next day. I'm sure many people have the same or similar circumstances, I know it's the same, if not worse sometimes, for Phanir.

 

Then add in the situation that others here have mentioned. The game contains a lot of grinding, as Dragon Quest games typically do, and as a result no one really ever feels powerful enough to do things with others unless they're capped themselves. I can't count how many encounters that I've been in that I couldn't possibly win without my Lv.80 mercenaries, and unfortunately fighting high level monsters is by far the best way to grind. So most people don't grind without a party chock full of Lv.80's.

 

The only thing I can suggest is to try and influence people you know outside of the game to bite the bullet and try the game. Without more people in the community this will always be an issue and there's really nothing you can do about it.

 

We can attempt to set up some activities, but really, those would be few and far between.

 

We can hope that the work Aeana is doing will help more people from the Den join. I know Woodus said in that thread that it would influence him into buying the game, and I wouldn't be surprised if others would be on board as well. The language barrier is probably the most influencing reason more people don't play.


In Topic: DQX Questions and Answers

Yesterday, 01:41 PM

Hi quick question - genki time seems to have switched to 2x gold as opposed to exp.

Did I change a setting by mistake or is this just a global change in the game? Thank you !

Genki Balls are supposed to give both 2x EXP as well as 2x Gold. Unless there are special balls that only give 2x of one and not the other, but I've never seen nor heard of that.

 

Are you sure you're not miscalculating the bonus? When you have the Angel Slime hat on, it's an additive bonus, not a multiplicative. That means total, you'll receive 400% EXP instead of what some people assume would be 600%. You're only getting a 33% boost over the normal Angel Slime Hat EXP bonus, so the number seems a lot lower than it should be but it's not wrong.


In Topic: A thread for my tinkering with DQ10

20 September 2014 - 05:53 PM

I apologize for the delay. As I mentioned in the first post, my free time has evaporated, and when I logged in on Thursday, I noticed that my method for locating the chat text in memory was flawed. Since the code up to that point was really sloppy and not easily distributable, I decided to rewrite the whole thing from the ground up. That part is mostly done, but unfortunately in the current form, it's only reliable for the first time you log into a character after starting the game. If you log out and go to the main menu and then log in again, the game moves stuff around and I haven't come up with a reliable way of tracking it down just yet, although I do have a couple of things I'd like to try. Since I know people are waiting for this, I'll be releasing it in the current state soon and work on coming up with something more bulletproof afterward. For now, it just means if you want to change characters and use my program, you would have to exit all the way out to the launcher first. It's a big inconvenience for those who have alt characters, so I'll be trying to get that done ASAP.

I've never done anything quite like this before, so it's been a learning experience, to be sure.

 

I've never really worked with memory addresses or anything like that myself, so unfortunately I don't really have any definite ideas to offer.

 

Perhaps there's a memory location prior to where the chat log starts that may be used to determine that it's starting? Like an identification header or something like that.

 

I probably have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm a programmer, but I've never dipped into addresses like this before so I'm pretty clueless on how to determine what you're looking for.

I don't have an iPhone

There's your problem!

 

I consider it a pro >_>


In Topic: DQX "Useful Tool" App

20 September 2014 - 04:47 PM

 

 

 

I found it by searching ドラゴンクエスト though the actual app is like おでかけ冒険者(kanji I can't read)ツール

 

If you just search ドラゴンクエスト and look for the app with a Dracky icon, that's the one to grab. It's definitely region-locked. There's also a 3DS version of this app, but that would be region-locked, too. I guess if anybody has a JP 3DS for the DQ7 remake or other DQ games on the system, you can download that as well.

Yeah I searched for ドラゴンクエスト and it doesn't show up. I got a bunch of player apps for recipes, a skill point simulator, and some other weird stuff, but not the official app.

 

I tried taking the app name from the iTunes store (冒険者のおでかけ超便利ツール) as well to no avail. It doesn't show up at all for me.

You need to access settings > app store > view apple id > change country and region > change to japan and hten you can see the japanese itunes store. It is only available there. In addition, you can only update it from there. 

The iTunes App Store isn't an issue. The link to it is at the top of the page. It was the Google one that was the issue. I don't have an iPhone.

Won´t show up in Play Store if your IP shows you are outside of Japan. 

I think you can make it so you can send the app to be installed on your device if you are using a VPN that is set to Japan.  I might be remembering wrong, been over 2 year or so since I have installed anything that had been locked by region. 

 

Either way the link to the app. 

https://play.google.....dqxtools&hl=ja

That's what I figured. Thanks for the link.

 

You can usually use an APK downloader to download from the Play Store, then transfer the APK to your device and install it that way.

 

But apparently that might be different than how it used to be, I'm having issues using the ones online (they're having issues).
