    I'm sorry that I just noticed this topic. #1 - I'm sorry, but no one here is going to be able to help. That's not me being a jerk, that's just the reality of it. I'm a teacher and have had some mild experience with this kind of thing before, but online help can make you feel better a bit, but there's nothing we're doing that's going to really help much. You need help IRL. Please, please, please, let someone at school know about this. Talk to a guidance counselor. Talk to a trusted teacher. There's going to have to be some sort of intervention (and I've got no idea what - family counseling, ...?) to make this in any way better. YOU need to be the one to start this as you're already showing signs of needing that attention. Get help. Get it today. Talk to someone you know today. Please.

    Hello, Choppasmith! This is my first post here. This project is so amazing it convinced me to join and post to thank you for your amazing efforts. I just recently got into the Dragon Quest series, and have been plugging away at the original Dragon Warrior on NES. This version of the original game will be great to have alongside the official versions. I really appreciate your stance on tackling the games in chronological order, instead of just immediately jumping into the fan favorites first. I think it's more productive to do it the way you are now. Otherwise, one might lose interest and never get around to doing the less favorite games in the series. Doing them in chronological order is fair for everyone, I think. I will be following this project closely. Thanks again for your amazing work!

    I was reading the English version of Dragon Quest illustrations and there was an interesting note. Most of the monster designs for V and VI were comlleted around the same time. One of the designs that went unused was Nimzo's first form. They went with a new design instead. They later reused that design for Murdaw in DQVI. As intended the battle with Nimzo would start with this https://i.imgur.com/yGVFa7z.png And then end he would transform into this: https://i.imgur.com/eBpoSDS.png I cant believe i didnt notice it before...

    Gamers are the most oppressed minority, after all.

    Gamers just need to stop building their identities around their after hours hobby meant to unwind. Like, I can get people being upset about all those changes Sony is implementing that affect Japanese games, but at the end of the day, this is your hobby. Move on to something you would find better. Gamers think everything is a personal attack against them. Get angry over bad consumer practices like loot boxes, not titty physics being taken out of a game.

    So many gamers are like children. Honestly, there's going to come a time when there needs to be a reckoning. I know some AAA companies and titles pull some stupid #$*! and there are ample reasons for a lot of gamers to get pissed, but it's individual, not industry-wide. I get if people want to move away from EA or Activision (WoW accounts are actually going downhill now, with quite a few major players who stuck it out since the start making videos about leaving, which is very bad for Blizzard...very, as WoW has been their consistent money maker, and Fortnight is not going to remain popular given the genre, but who knows). There's so much ridiculous anger, and people not willing to even pay attention to other games. I guess for the companies they feel they have to put up with it, as these are their audiences. Granted it's probably a very small minority of gamers, but it is a sizeable vocal group that just gets pissy over anything. There's a huge DQ fan who predicted certain things concerning a Dragon Quest...I think 7. Anyway, some gamers took it to heart when he was wrong (no e3 announcement when he said there would be one, back in 2016 I think?), and he's had death threats, and people drive by his house after being doxxed. It hasn't happened for years, but for a few months the guy was terrorized because some gamers took to heart that Dragon Quest 7 3DS would be announced, because he claimed insider info, and was wrong. Whether he had info or not isn't the point, the point is that some people took verbal abuse online to a whole new level. I seriously think there are some gamers who need a good spanking, or a tar and feather...publicly so they feel shamed (hopefully), and calm the fudge down. I wish I were joking, but I feel bad for that guy. Ace Combat is a really good simulation series too, but regardless, the man definitely did not deserve that. I brought up something similar on gamefaqs, and I was accused of being abusive and a monster. I did carry it a bit far though, but the intent was to make the point that there are some gamers who just have no sense of self-control, and they make the rest of us look really bad by comparison, especially when they take matters in to their own hands over emotional hurdles. Though in my case it was due to someone not caring about making major story reveals in every post. Granted after the whole exchange he stopped, and I did carry things a bit far, but for me it's just unbelievable either the apathy for certain things or the childish emotional bullshit. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/twit I sometimes get the impression Twitter was created on purpose for this reason, to showcase to the world how stupid and annoying some people can be by giving them a platform and limiting their vocabulary, so they naturally degrade themselves in smaller bytes...or maybe to encourage the dullwitted amongst us. Not saying that most or all twitter users are themselves twits, but I get the impression that was the intention for the platform...afterall I would be saying I myself am a twit given I use it, and I don't think I am.

    It was funny. I just kept trying to derail the topic with random clips, which was fun. Then you had the guys with the presentations showing differences, the argument Bururian had with the one guy even though Bururian kept trying to walk away from it... It was an interesting time.

    Sounds like you used BitTorrent to download the mod. I got a message from my ISP about illegal download of DQ11 when I tried to download DQ11 using BitTorrent (I didn't fully download it due to lack of space on my hard drive at the time, and deleted the incomplete file before I even got the notice). BitTorrent is being tracked by IP holders. There is encrypted BitTorrent, but not all torrent downloaders support encryption. With encrypted torrents, the IP holder has to download the file in question themselves to figure out what it is. Of course, if they do that, they can easily snag the IPs of everyone downloading said file. I would recommend not using BitTorrent to download files. Unless you use a VPN that doesn't log your activity.

    Personally I'd prefer we never lock the forums down. I lurked for years before my parents said I was old enough to sign up. Personally I'd prefer we never lock the forums down. I lurked for years before my parents said I was old enough to sign up. Maybe look into the same-IP thing. (Though if a bunch of DQX players are using the same SoftEther connection, they may all be on the same IP address but legitimately using the site... Maybe cross-reference the info against a list of our X Players?)

    Haven't been playing games for the past years, but I'm still big fan. The game was on sale on Steam last on christmas week and surprisingly my laptop was able to run it on low settings. I'm addicted to it, but soon I won't be able to play for a long while again so I'm just rushing through the post game. Just an amazing game. The big plot twist really suprised me, it's one of the best games in the series for sure. I love the characters and the gameplay. That's all I can say.

    Legit balancing three Pokémon games at once. Crystal, Yellow, and now Silver for all the Gen II Pokémon I can’t get in Crystal. I’m about 160 Pokémon deep into Crystal and 113 into Yellow. I actually found patches of open area to bike around for like 30 minutes trying to hatch eggs of baby Pokémon last night, but that’s mostly settled now. Bunch of other weird stuff like that, like sorting boxes looking for Pokémon specifically for the purposes of evolving through trading. It would be nice to finish a Pokédex before the long weekend is over but I dunno if I can personally consider a game “completed” in my brain without all 252 Pokémon. Mew is the only one unobtainable by legitimate means.
