  1. Regards: I have the honour to announce here the release of a new patch, that I have created, that fixes all the bugs that existed in the English translation of Dragon Quest 1+2 for SNES, like the game freezing dialog in the inn of Beranule / Beran, the Prince of Cannock's cloning bug, or the endless dialog with a nun after defeating Hargon, near the end, as well as an untranslated variant of the DQ1 ending that was still in Japanese, when you complete the game by carrying the princess Laura in your arms; besides many other important bugs (like the one that cuts a dialog during the DQ1 fin

  2. Oh, my god! Lol Thank you. By the way. Notice a new update of this pach has been released, in the aforementioned web and also in romhacking.net community, that adds some new features that might be of interest. v.1.03c - Item name "Statue of Evil" in inventory is unified to "Eye of Malroth", how it's mentioned in dialogs, to avoid confusions. - Consequently, final boss name Shidor passes to Malroth. - Interrupted message "Oh, [name], it seems you've died... in battle!", that appeared like "Oh, [name], it seems you've di... in battle!" fixed, and erased the cod

  3. Hey guys, some folks at the Den's Discord server and I have been working on some preservation efforts for the English / Global version of the game. Edit: Gotta mention the good work Woodus put into datamining the character art, which i have used for the videos i link later in this post Check out that thread too! We have different projects: Screenshotting the Compendium, the 3d models for the weapons and armor are the big priority here. More on this later. Adding as much Compendium info into a spreadsheet. English is the biggest priority, but getting the Chinese, Spanish, Fr

  5. Back when I was playing Nocturne in the PS2 days when it was new, most of the older SMT fans were pretty chill about stuff, but there was always a few that took it too far. Unless you were doing the most efficient route/demon fusing, you weren't playing it right. That's why I appreciate you all here. Everyone is chill enough about stuff.

  6. The other day, after a brief conversation with @Xiggy i made a quick twitter thread on how to upgrade basic square houses into more beautiful building. To go from this: to this: --- On another note, Ben XC posted a 35 tips video recently. I personally do not recommend the block removal one, but otherwise very solid tricks and tips. This one is in Japanese, but you might learn some advanced plant-based building techniques with this video. This person shows very clearly how they do everything in the video, it's amazing.

  7. Honestly you’re better off. There are fans like us DQ folks I’ve interacted with who are pretty down to earth and just enjoy talking about the series and different elements/characters, but then there are some people who are extreme one way or the other. I know I get annoyed with a lack of other SMT stuff and that I joke about Persona (pretty much in the exact same way I joke about DQ9), but I’ve got nothing against anyone who prefers that series. You like it, great, just don’t be a dick about it. It’s just not for me but there are things I enjoyed about them. I’ll just stick with the othe

  12. So, there was discussion on the discord about how the forums need activity, in order to make people post. I mused about making a thread where I ask for opinions on random things. The first thing I thought of was this, and people on the discord seemed to like the idea, so I guess we're doing this now. Basically, each day, I will come in this thread and post a ship. But not just any ship. No, I made a list of characters, and to get what ship I post, I will plug that list into a Random Number Generator, and post whatever the Random Number God tells me. And you all, in the na

  22. Strange Journey Redux: Finished the awful second half of Sector Eridanus (it took me nearly 3 hours to do it, damn I hate this place) and defeated the first battle with Ouroboros. I had a team ready to go against her but I forgot she could use Mahama, which is Light element insta death. Two of my demons couldn’t block it and bit the dust, but I had two in reserve who did block out Light element. So while not the team I wanted to use, I did claim victory. Good thing too, as this is one of the hardest boss fights in the game since Ouro keeps replenishing HP every turn. Now to go and stop th

  25. The only way to get updates about DQM1+2 was to hope Tom mentioned it on his Twitter. This meant I pretty much checked it every couple of days. During the course of watching these updates I would see him get excited as he wrapped up a translation and then upset once people started to nitpick and gripe over NOTHING. Frankly, he did a great job translating the projects he was part of. The cycle got fresh when Goemon 3's translation was finished and released. The negative feedback was too much and Tom felt he needed to take refuge from the internet. Click the link below for the full story. h

  26. Yeah, it’s not something we usually discuss here. I mean, I really liked Persona 3 a lot because of how it handled its characters but still offered the strange and surreal elements of other SMT games. Ones like 4 and 5 I’m a lot more “meh,” towards, but there were still characters I liked like Kanji in 4 and Sojiro in 5. A lot of the party members I couldn’t stand after awhile and I honestly wasn’t a fan of scenes that didn’t have much to do with the plot, but you aren’t going to like everything. I don’t really have a solid answer why I prefer other SMT stuff, but if I had to say a reason

  29. I would say another reason Persona is more popular and mainstream than SMT is how much more relatable and down to Earth they are. I could be off-base on this since I’ve only ever played a bit of SMT IV, but when I look at that series, I see post-apocalypses full of ruined cities and demons. Persona still has fantastical settings for the RPG combat and repackaged the demons as “Shadows” and “Personas,” but it balances out this portion of the gameplay with an everyday life system where you talk to people you encounter, develop bonds, and go to the beach or restaurants or a summer festival or wha

  31. A fun little battle thing, not sure if it's brand new or not, and I've seen it twice now... Some battles start with dead monsters. I fought these two Orc Kings when I ran into a pile of bones. Of course Orcs and Orc Kings can cast Revive, so they're alive quickly, but I was able to go all-out in this battle and kill both Orc Kings before they could Revive. I got over 3,000 EXP from this battle, so I guess I got credit for the Skelton Dragon kills too. Pretty awesome.

  32. Disc system showed up and OMG, it's great! I did the first little mission with a drone and of course the Metal Disc is on high spin! Couple new things to J3P are shown off here. 1. A drone. You could always put a sensor overlay on the display to see hidden things, treasure boxes, paths, and the like. Now you have access to a drone that does the same thing, but can move all over. It's pretty cool and grab some items and power ups like... 2. Fairies! There's always been random white fairies that grant you 2x or 4x experience in the next battle, but they've added pink fairies that allow you whe

  33. I already love the design for this demon. Very cool. “Genma Fionn mac Cumhaill: A hero of Celtic myth. Leader of the Fianna. While training under a druid priest, he was ordered to cook the Salmon of Knowledge and gained wisdom after licking his thumb which was covered in the salmon's fat. His unique skill is a physical attack called Mac an Luinn.”

  34. I have been playing a Metric ton of Deep Rock Galactic. I can't get enough of this game. I had never even heard of it until someone gifted me a copy of it a month ago today. I expected to play it with my friend until he or I got tired of it, but I've been playing almost daily for the last month. Some of it's features are why I love it: Space Dwarves Customizable facial hair 1-4 Player co-op PVE NO PVP Procedural generated caverns 100% destructible environments There is plenty to do to keep me engaged. Four classes to choose from. Different Hazard ratings

  35. Hi! in the introduction forum I have mentioned that I'm an artist (more like a hobbyist with a professional level but makes no money from it), and since I'm going to start making DQ fanart moving forward I felt like making a thread that I will continuously update whenever I make new art . Consider this thread as my art dump, or something along those lines, thank you for passing by! Also, I will feel free to take anyone's suggestion or comment as an idea to be drawn in the future, but this isn't a request thread . I didn't really know what to do first to introduce my art, so

  37. Biggest update here is for NNK Remastered. I think I’m on the last little stretch (but who knows, I’ve thought that before). Cured all the zombi-ness from the citizens of the three big kingdoms the true villain has been revealed (along with an interesting backstory!). Some new bounties and side-quests popped up and while I don’t feel the need to finish every single one, I would like to reap most or all of the Merit awards so I’m going to be working on that for a while. Three more to go, I think. In Bravely Default, I got Asterisks for SwordMaster and Ninja. Neither class really impressed

  38. Yes! I finally caught up on Nintendo Direct today and I was happy to see some SMT V in there. While I’m just dipping my toes into the series with SMT III Nocturne HD Remaster, I do think I’ll like it and hopefully become a true fan. In fact, after watching the footage, I went onto Amazon and ordered a copy of SMT IV, since I foresee a price hike as SMT V gets closer to release. I don’t know if I’ll be able to beat III and IV before the release of V, but either way I’m happy to have it in my collection until I can play it. I know it’s random (especially for me) but I love the music

  39. Finally seeing more of Shin Megami Tensei V yesterday made me happy. It was great to finally see some gameplay, and the game is looking wonderful. Glad it will be releasing this November. To celebrate, here’s the artwork they released to tie in with the game. Doi’s artstyle really fits with the series now that Kaneko isn’t behind the wheel anymore, and I’m looking to see what new demon designs the game will have.

  40. Strange Journey Redux: So, totally because of the Nintendo Direct yesterday and ACTUALLY SEEING SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI V GAMEPLAY, I popped SMT Strange Journey Redux back in my 3DS XL. Finished off Sector Delphinus, had a hell of a time fighting its boss, Asura, and am now making my way through Sector Eridanus. This is the longest part of the game by far, and boy, I already remember why I hate this part of the game. I’m using a map to get through the warp maze section. Not doing that off trial and error again! Haha Collection of SaGa: Speaking of games I haven’t played in awhile, I got the ur

  42. Good evening folks! I've been working on my free time on the making of a French and English translation of Item Monogatari, a book of several short stories about items and their respective lore from DQI to III, initially realesed in 1989. The first chapter, "Sword of King" is done and completed (chapter 11 "Armour of Erdrick" is almost done) and I thought I might as well share it here, as I also shared it on Twitter. :'D Hope y'all like it! Chapter one features Rubiss too, should you want more of her after reading the first volume of the novel Seirei Rubiss Densetsu! Click me!

  44. Just started Blue Dragon. It got a lot of flak for being a bog standard and traditional JRPG, but that’s exactly what I want to play. Not everything needs to reinvent the wheel. I will say, the protagonist is pretty annoying.

Long time no see on this thread, but the Dragon's Den server celebrated its first year on June 5th and i made a small illustration for it, depicting all the people that have shaped the server and are still kicking around . It all started for matchmaking on Dragon Quest Stars (R.I.P.), and became something amazing. this time, no dumps: i haven't made any fanart lately, been busy dealing with irl stuff, sorry.

  46. Thanks a lot for the positive response! There are like 12 chapters iirc in the book, but despite starting with chapter 1, the one I'm working on now is the 11th. Since they don't really follow each other, I took the liberty of working on those whose item's story I was the most curious about. Chapter 11: Armor of Erdrick will then be the second chapter available. Then it'll be the one on the Mirror of Ra!

  49. Has anyone played Raidou 1-2? I've been trying to play both of them last Sunday and was extremely bored. The dialogue, presentation and story were good but everything else very subpar. Gameplay is kind of nice... but extremely repetitive. Random encounters happen everywhere, even in the towns so if you're going to buy medicine or bullets, you can loose all your progress just because the fight started right next to the item seller. The fights themselves are okay but do get very repetitive as you encounter only a couple enemies for a long time. The objectives are also very unclear and the
