Today I met Torneko and noticed that he has some new coins in stock. Is it still recommendable to buy the Liquid Metal Slime coin for 12.000G? Because that's what I did ^^.

We would need a screenshot to know what new coins he has. As far as I know, you're the only one in the team whose gotten him since 2.3.

The CT ROM hack C&D was made up to get out of having to finish/polish/support it, and Type-0 did not receive a C&D at all (nor did they claim to; in fact, the guy specifically said they didn't). What happened there was that he heard about the HD release ahead of time and wanted to beat them, and that's about it. There's pretty much no danger of a C&D in this case, either. It's just not worth it for SE to pursue, and they know it.

Yeah. I completely agree with Aeana. Not sure why people think a C&D would come up. There was no C&D for any translation project that they knew they were not going to do themselves. DQ1+2 SNES, DQ3 SNES, DQ5 SNES, DQ6 SNES, DQ5r PS2, SaGa 2+3 DS, the list goes on. When they have no prospects in the region, they don't care and don't do anything about it because there's no point. The only thing it would do is make the public more agitated with them and that's something no company can afford to do for absolutely no reason. In fact, it promotes buying the game, which gets them more money for literally no effort at all.

 

My only point in my post (which seems to have sparked all of this) was that they should be wary of becoming a potential ban target while testing, because we have no idea how SE (or their automated tools) will react to their modifications.

Last week they added another 1000 block of the housing block. If you've been wanting to move to Glen without doing less sanctioned method bows a good time. Keep in mind land costs start a much higher cost then go down each day until it reaches the minimum cost.

If you bought the game recently you should have received a free land ticket, that lets you grab any S or M sized plot for free.

 

Just as an FYI to everyone.

Now, here's a more open-ended question for the community... thoughts on trying to get in touch with SqEnix once some of this stuff is actually working, to try to grease the wheels for an official western release?

I wouldn't hope for an official western release. A translation project from a few people for a small group does not equate to there being potential for the project outside of Japan, especially when you consider the data server requirements and other things that make a localization of an MMO a lot more costly than a localization of a regular DQ game.

 

They've already specifically said outright that they're not bringing it to the US; I doubt this would change anything. It's a huge endeavor to release an MMO anywhere, and they've already analyzed it and decided that it wasn't worth the cost.

 

That being said, I doubt they would do anything about the project either. As I've voiced on the DD's team chat, the most you guys should be worried about is the game's anti-hacking/cheating software (that has to exist, I don't know why it wouldn't, although it's not as upfront as they usually are about existing) catching you and deciding that files being altered/memory being fiddled with (even if it doesn't attach to the program itself) is a violation and bans you. In the end, they care about the JP players, and as long as the native players aren't upset or otherwise annoyed by us, they don't care that we're there.

 

I know I always sound pessimistic about this project, and I don't mean to. I just want to sound realistic, especially about the first part of this post. Even if 100 people joined because of this patch, 100 people is not enough to localize. Even if you can assume for every one person that joined, 100 more would if it was localized, 10,000 people isn't that much either in the grand scheme of it. It's unfortunate but it's true.

 

This project is a great idea and I think it's really helpful to everyone who is somewhat iffy on Japanese or otherwise uncomfortable about the language, and I think I speak for everyone when I say we really appreciate the work you guys have done.
