    *Mad scientist laughter* YES ! YES! *ahem* So I enjoyed playing DQ I-III on mobile. But it always bugged me that you had these nice official scripts stuck in an awful mobile port experience. Pining for the idea of a proper console experience with the official script, I looked for ways to find the script, but it looked pretty hopeless. I just came across aluigi's program quickbms and forum dedicated to extracting data from various games. He actually had a script made for DQII mobile. I guess someone asked for it a long time ago, and didn't really detail how to use the script. But I just figured it out and huge thanks to aluigi figured out that DQIII was slightly different in its compression and now have all three games ripped in both text and graphics. Sound might be a different story I'm afraid. Plans are already in motion to possibly port the script to the NES/SFC versions. dq123rip.7z

    They just announced it here: Prize is a Slime plushie and a poster signed by Yuji Horii. There was eight winners total. I think I’m the only Den member who won? Either way, REPRESENTING.

    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.

    Short on time. Will expand later. As I've mentioned in the past, we as consumers have the right to vote with our wallet. Being a comic fan, there are certain creators I don't support, not necessarily solely because of their views, but how they treat others. A comic is different, though. It has a creative team of 1-6 people. Games can have hundreds. If people are truly offended by Sugiyama's views, if they don't want to support the game, that's their choice. Though I see many in the gaming press and punchlines like ResetEra using Sugiyama for shallow virtue signaling. This gives the series bad press it doesn't deserve. It cast so much of a shadow that Square Enix had to give a PR apology. Out of everyone working on the titles, Sugiyama is the least involved, and he's done less and less with every title. While I don't like his views, it's not fair to punish the hundreds of coders, modelers, and testers.

    1) Only in the West does anyone really care, and even then it's a very small, but often vocal minority that frankly I can't stand anymore, as they make a mockery of "liberalism," having neither the balls to look themselves in the mirror for their hypocrisy, nor any shred of integrity of their beliefs...thus they constantly devolve into ever smaller and smaller groups looking for more and more problems to solve or conspiracies in the walls out to get them...OMG...THE PAINT IS WHITE...IT'S WHITE PRIVILEGE...OH GOD HELP US...WAIT WE DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD...OH SCIENCE DAMN YOU WH...OH WE DON'T BELIEVE IN SCIENCE ANYMORE...OH SOCIAL JUSTICE TENANTS SAVE US FROM THE PAINT ON THE WALLS...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE...OMG IT'S OPPRESSING ME...IT'S OPPRESSING ME *SOBBING...MORE SOBBING* I NEED MY SAFE SPACE NOW...*CURLS INTO A BALL* (liberalism requires absolute respect for free speech first and foremost, all other things follow after, so no true liberal in any sense of the word would care about Sugiyama's beliefs in terms of his work or anything he's related to, only his actions based on those beliefs as actions have real meaning and impact). I have no respect for the opinions or life of anyone who gives a hoot about Sugiyama's words. I care if he takes direct action, like advocates for Trans people to be put in concentration camps or denied basic rights. Other than that, as abhorrent as they are, they are words, and words mean only what you want them to. 2) Most civilians don't actually care, it's only those who indulge in identity politics, but that's due to forced indoctrination in schools since the 1970's, though in colleges since the 1950's. Though the original identity politics was at least about true equality. So I respect what I was taught, because it was just that white or black or gay or straight or whatever...who cares, let people be as they are. Self defense only if someone tries to force their political crap on you. Then just argue it out, unless they're idiots, in which case, walk away. If they physically need you to believe their world view...fight back. That was it. Plain and simple. Liberalism at its purest. Then it changed to Political Correctness and just devolved into the crap we see today. Mindless droning on with repetitious statements. Mass mobs where literally not one person is willing to talk or listen. People playing so hard into identity politics, now suddenly we're back to a point where we have to separate people again? For what purpose? For rights people already have that they claim they don't...oh, you mean special privileges from people where 80+% had nothing to do with your familial plight in the past, and most of whom have the same slavery bs in their history, but we just focus on one group? Whatever dude, get over yourself. Most don't want to defend someone like Sugiyama, but are forced to when dumbshits give a rats behind when someone has a stupid opinion but can't do anything specific about it because the whole of his/her country (or near enough) couldn't care less. 3) Japan doesn't care, as they take generally 1950's viewpoint on personal opinions versus work, which is the same way most liberal and conservatives in the US tend to think (except for those who actually care about identity politics). 4) Assuming SE should care, because it's supposed to be some modern age where we now have "right think" and "wrong think," not positions one can make their mind on, they still can't do anything and their hands are tied because Sugiyama owns the musical rights through his company Sugiyama Kobo. This means if they part ways, and if SE wants to release any Dragon Quest from that point forward, they would require a new composer, and would require remaking every composition from scratch, and not one of them can sound like the original music. The only things we would have access to are the already released copies of games and any CD the company Sugiyama Kobo decides to release. All digital versions would be scrapped and changed before rerelease to the new revisions. So essentially if SE did cut ties, they would be totally #$*!ed. They have to wait for him to retire and that's that. Any action to the contrary would kill the series in Japan. I don't think for one second the Japanese people would appreciate having someone condemned who is well respected (for their work), and I don't think for one second they would be happy replaying older DQ releases with new music, or new DQ releases with music that doesn't sound remotely like Dragon Quest so as to avoid a potential theft lawsuit from Sugiyama Kobo, which would likely happen even after his death, due to bad blood after having ties cut. Sugiyama isn't even an SE employee anyway, so even if they wanted to directly impact his life to quell things, they couldn't. 5) Square Enix owes the LGBTQ community nothing. Literally nothing. Sugiyama is Sugiyama, SE is SE. In capitulating and somehow doing something to "make amends" they become complacent and inherit guilt by default. They essentially claim ownership of his own words and opinions. Nevermind any concept would be giving into a certain entitlement culture. What's next, a son says he didn't like his mom's baking so she gets compensation? Are we only supposed to say things now that make people feel better about themselves? How far does that go? We've already seen where PC culture has headed in the West, and NONE, not ONE SINGLE DROP is remotely good. Not even a shred. It is evil, because it forces everyone into a sense of worry that anything they might say is somehow going to be taken the wrong way. So we start this same bs in Japan? No thank you. I want the culture dead gone and buried, because it doesn't belong. You don't get to demand compensation when someone says words you don't like. If this were a common practice, no one would be able to own anything, you'd be paying out the ass each month, and any payment gotten would be given out the next second. Nevermind it opens up the door for anyone to find anything hurtful or "hate" speech or a "hate crime" or "offensive." Here's a protip on life for those who don't get it. Offense is taken, not given. Everyone in this world will eventually meet someone who will be offended by the very fact you exist. That you wake up in the morning and take a breath of fresh air. That you make coffee. Offense for waving. Back in the 90's we learned to grow a backbone. Ok, so someone doesn't like me...whoopdie doo. They said something I find offensive...ok, maybe I'll throw some words back out, maybe I'll argue the point to convince them otherwise, or maybe I'll just not give a #$*! and walk away. Or hell, maybe I'll throw them the bird and walk away. Lots of other options.

    Hello, hello! Once again, I'm playing through a Japanese DQ game and building a database of information about it. This time, I'm tackling Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru & Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key on the 3DS. So far, the data I'm including are a comprehensive Monster List (including common and rare drops, scouting locations, breeding recipes, from which eggs they hatch, whether it must be traded, or WiFi gifts), Area-based monster lists, Egg hatching lists, Dream Egg hatching lists, the monsters owned by Other Countries' Masters, Monster Arena battle list, Mini Medal rewards, Costumes, and Scout Q challenges. This process is, of course, immense, as DQM2 on 3DS has 802 monsters in it; after about two weeks, I'm at 28.4% of that total (219 monsters). Also...my Japanese is rudimentary, at best. But, I managed to 100% DQ VII 3DS, DQ VIII 3DS, and DQ XI 3DS, so...I have faith I can complete this undertaking. At any rate, know that it's coming, and will hopefully be finished before DQ Builders 2 hits the shelves.

    There are certain game companies I don't support and it all comes down to how the heads of the company interact with people. I'm not talking about people like Kamiya, which is mostly done for persona and laughs. It's the ones that spew nastiness and insult fans on forums and Twitter. Not only does it hurt the product, it hurts the employees. Putting "my views are my own" or some jazz in a bio doesn't absolve you when you're the face of a company. That doesn't mean you can't be passionate or outspoken. There's a certain level of responsibility people seem to be missing. Arrogance and spite have replaced constructive dialogue. Sugiyama, however, doesn't act this way at all. If you want to know his views, you have to actively seek them out. As far as I know, he's never associated his views with the Dragon Quest brand. That's what people are doing lately. It would be like saying supporting DQ supports real estate fraud because of Toriyama being named in the Paradise Papers. Both are hugely successful independent creators that are contracted to work on this series. Now if Yuji Horii was going around and saying those things and insulting people, that'd be one thing! That's not the case. Horii has always been friendly with the producers and community managers positively representing the brand. Sugiayama's views, while sad and unfortunate, is a tangent, convenient way to mar the series. So many of the people who make this stand think they're being so progressive; so woke. It's all just empty rhetoric. It doesn't help anyone.

    Heyo! Heh, long time no see! So I made a DQ doodle and thought I'd share. It had a cuss in it, but I made it decent, don't worry. Be lucky (PS-I've never uploaded a file onto here, I hope it works)

    I just picked up Dragon Warrior for the NES this week and was doing my first casual play-through. I thought it would be fun to try the game blind, rather than following a guide, but I encountered something that I am nearly certain is highly unusual. I was farming gold and exp (currently level 10), and I was farming enemies south of Rimuldar. Upon saving up 1500 gold I stopped in town to get the broadsword and then began farming gold for armor. After finishing a fight I noticed my controller was acting a little buggy, so I gently unplugged it and plugged it back in. When I plugged my controller into the console a text-box appeared on top of the over-world. It read: "Please wait, I wish to go with the on thy journey. May I travel as thy companion?" Another text-box appeared, giving me the options Yes and No. I thought: "How cool, I didn't know you had a companion in this game, I wonder how that impacts fighting." So I hit yes. The stranger replied "I'm so happy!" walked onto the same square I was on and half of my sprite merged with her sprite. Then the credits rolled. I was completely shocked to suddenly win the game in the middle of a field... I thought you were supposed to fight the "DragonLord" or something... I'm assuming I somehow caused a credits-warp and won far earlier than I ever was meant to, and being a fan of speed runs, I wanted to post this discovery so that someone who knows this game, or just a member of the community may be able to use it. I'm going to find out if I can recreate the event on my own, and will post more findings if I am able.

    I don't think Square Enix will actually remake Dragon Quest IX in the coming years because I think they would rather remake Dragon Quest I - III using Dragon Quest XI's engine or a similar graphical style. The reason for this is because earlier, I recall a topic saying that they wanted to remake Dragon Quest III in the previously mentioned style but then said that they'd first work on Dragon Quest XII which, if the last game is a sign, is still a good few years away. However, a Dragon Quest IX remake for switch does have excellent potential.

    OK, that's enough. We've had thoughtful discussion on the topic, but this is what it always comes down to. And I'm sick of it. The Dragon Quest series has gone through so much to get to where it is today. Now you can't have a mainstream topic about it without shitposts like this. "DQ supports homophobia." No, it doesn't, and if you want to wish for his death, feel free to chant that all you want on ResetEra. I'm done seeing it here. Discussion is fine, but I'm going to start deleting ignorant and spiteful comments.

    Ugh don't me started on this. Oh well too late. If you are easily offended please look away. So I'm guessing what happened is the following: Some nothing loser video game "journalist" NPC combs what xe considers far-right Japanese TV show for dirt to gain notoriety. Maybe it is far right but it's hard to get an objective look at things in another language, and I don't trust most "journalist". Plus one of those a-holes dissed my DQ5r translations so their taste is clearly questionable! Sugi baby said something bad about a protected class with a very powerful and rich lobbying group. (Bad move, should have said it about white straight males, you'd be a hero!) Said group agitates cowardly video game corporation. Corporation bends over and apologies like a #$*!. Dragon Quest has 99 problems, but Sugiyama isn't one of them. Most of the 99 is the shitty localizer (if it still 8-4) and the other issue is injecting western "values" so not to offend. I'm specifically talking about the changing of crosses and the censoring of a character in DQ9 physical appearance. I'm sure there's more but I don't remember them at the moment. When I play a game made by a Japanese company its partially to escape the current lameness and thinskinness of the US culture. The more DQ is sanitized, the more cookie cutter it becomes. I don't care about SJWizm and I refuse to be forced to care. Oh, and keep on whaling! Just in case this is TL;DR, here is everything I said in a nutshell: Get woke, go broke.

    I dunno if anyone’s made this point but some day, probably several decades from now, but some day nonetheless, the servers for X will go down. And then as far as I’m aware that game will be basically unplayable. One less game you won’t be able to legally or officially play anymore. An offline version would help to preserve that.

    I kept this relatively quiet because I didn't know if I'd get the position or if I'd get through the writing or not, but it's official. I'm a news writer/reviewer for RPGamer.com now! A completely unpaid position, but pretty legit media website. They even send employees to E3 and PAX and such and interview some companies. I had a couple quick news things that I posted this week, but today a larger piece dropped that I'd put together as part of my application and then worked on quite a bit in recent days. https://rpgamer.com/review/dragon-quest-monsters-joker-3-import-review/ Loved this game and I really wanted to get it out and posted on the heels of the DQXI review they had up Monday, and success!

    AustNerevar Jr. was born at 9:26 AM CST this morning. 7 pounds and 7 ounces. His original due date was on the same day as the DQ XI release, but he was really fed up being stuck inside the womb and decided to come out at 37 weeks.

    36 more days to go! This Saturday was one year since they announced it was coming to the US. I remember that day well as I was waiting to take my wife in for a C section for our second little girl. She turned one this weekend. I can't wait to play this game, but I will also associate this game with my little Bronze Bear, and it will be that much more awesome!

    Hello guys! So I have been working on a translation guide on how to play the mobile game 星のドラゴンクエスト/Hoshi no Dragon Quest/Dragon Quest of the Stars. Not only am i working on a guide but also have a Discord server where we can plan multiplayer quests, discuss about the game, where i post my guides, talk about the series as whole, etc. I welcome everyone to join. The main mission is to bring current players together and have newcomers join and help eachother on quests, using the multiplayer feature. Id like for fans to give this game a try if they haven't yet. It is not region locked or IP locked, you do have to either change your play stores region or download QooApp application to download the game since it may not be available to your country, but as far as opening the game and playing it requires no VPN or any sort of trick to playing it. https://discord.gg/GhaWysV I am also looking for people who would like to help with Translation and being Discord Mod. Message me for details if you have free spare time and would like to have a fun project to collaborate with, have ideas youd like to share, or just want to give to the DQ community in any way.

    Hey thanks man. It makes me happy I can do this for people. Believe me, I'd LOVE to jump ahead and do the SNES remakes. I think you're right in that if I did do that, the other games wouldn't get done. I'm still a novice to rom hacking so I like to stay with what I know and what I'm used to, learning as I go, than jumping systems and having to learn new procedures, tools, etc. And I know people aren't exactly foaming at the mouth to play Dragon Warrior 2 of all games, but I don't want to leave gaps for possible newcomers who insist on playing the originals. Sounds great! I honestly don't know much about that stuff, just keep in mind with the rom expansion needed to accompany the script this definitely won't work on the original cartridge. Anyway, progress update. The script is pretty much finished and updated DW2's strange dictionary system mentioned a few posts back. The intro is definitely a conundrum for me. It's not just the text (DW2 had the third person narration, the monsters speaking) that's completely different, but the "choreography" of the sprites. I'm thinking of dumping the third person narration just for the intro and use the modern style *: labeling (there's no parenthesis in the game like DW1 so I'm going to use the asterisk for the various emotes in the game like sob or sigh). I hope to really capture and compare both versions side by side and see if it's possible to match them up. Oh and if you haven't checked, version DW1 1.3c featuring a ton of fixes based off reports and feedback is out. I think there's one little typo and another little title screen tweak by Chicken Knife for a future update otherwise it's pretty final.

    Yeah, I’d have to echo this. While I didn’t play a main series game until 2010 since I wasn’t really in the know about Dragon Warrior returning to the Dragon Quest name, I consider myself a longtime fan since I first played Dragon Warrior Monsters on my GBC. It and both versions of Monsters 2 were the only games related to the series I had for along time and I loved most everything about those games (especially 2), but I felt right at home when I finally started playing the main series with III (GBC version) and IV (DS version). I felt kind of dense since it took me so long to finally play a main series game/learn about the name change, but I’m glad I did start playing many more games from the series the past 9 years, have enjoyed many great DQ experiences old, new, and imported and found this wonderful website/forum/group of DQ fans.

    Oh, I will never run out of things to make fun of regarding Jessica. For @ignasia, since he asked, and for the rest of you: whenever I get Jessica's puff-puff, her skirt glitches, and so I get an interesting shot of her leggings. The main character's dialog is too funny for the scene.

    No Armour: I've seen people begging for a harder than "stronger monsters" difficulty so this is my response. "No Armour" makes you have to grind to unlock defensive spells and improve your base defensive stats. Enemies hit harder and it's practically an indirect buff to the damage they can deal. No escape: Borderline nonsensical restriction since you can choose whether you want to engage in combat or not. A better demonstration of the "you can never run away from battle again" was in Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne's Hard difficulty. The common misconception is that you're running away to escape death, but in games such as SMT: Nocturne and older Dragon Quest games you escape to conserve resources or because you deemed that burning 20 MP in spells for only 15 exp is a bad trade-off. Shypox: Hero decides to recall stuff that make him feel embarrassed. Shypox has a lore explanation which you may encounter if you're not rushing through the story or you can simply ask your favorite online board for info. It's pure RNG, plain and simple. However, the end result is that you have to plan around it. Think Fire Emblem's hit/miss rates and how you have to have a plan B for every move. This makes you have to have a plan B for whatever plans you had for your main character's turn. No shops: Best gear comes largely from chests and crafting so shops are a convenience. This will also make you budget your consumables. Hint: If you use many consumables and die, load your Autosave instead of the Church save, you will get the consumables back. No shops also make your gold useless, but there's always inns and gambling. Stronger enemies: This applies a 20% increase on enemy stats (unverified - needs source) but when it comes to boss fights the difference is not negligible. In my opinion, Stronger enemies alone makes the game "normal difficulty". This option on its own may impact your gameplay a lot or none at all, depending on how often you fight, how often you upgrade your gear and how far you're going with planning your skill tree. If you're good in 2 out of 3 you may not even notice anything, it's why I rank this on its own as "Normal mode". Weak enemies give no exp: This one is useful for those who developed the bad habit of using raw leveling power instead of tactics, otherwise it's as much of a restriction as the "No Escape" one, because while it caps your level, that cap is by default too high to even matter. However, this changes when you pair it with other restrictions like "No Armour", "No shops" and "Stronger Enemies" because "No Armour" requires you to grind for defensive stats and spells to make up for your lack of gear, but turns out you cannot grind forever plus grinding requires you to kill enemies that are actually hard in relation to you so you need to be alert all the time. SUGGESTED DRACONIAN RULES COMBOS NORMAL: No Draconian rules enabled Enjoying the story with a little bit of challenge in bosses. Grinding required: None to little. MODERATE: No exp from weak enemies + no escape It only affects your grinding habits. No escape doesn't mean much unless you make the mistake of running on enemies too often. HARD: Stronger enemies + weak enemies give no exp + no escape Self-explanatory. NIGHTMARE: No armor + no escape + no shops + shypox All the Draconian Restrictions that were available in the Japanese version. Prepare to grind to boost your skill repertoire and natural defenses, and also rely on buffs/debuffs a lot more. Shypox will force you to have a plan B in case your Hero gets hit with it during important fights. Grinding required: High. INFERNO: Everything enabled Every change Nightmare brings except that you cannot grind as much as you would like due to level cap. On top of that, Strong Enemies makes grinding scary, at least when you hit a new area. When you die you only lose gold and because gold is almost worthless, dying can only hurt your pride. Edit: It's confirmed that you can clear the game with all restrictions enabled. Grinding required: Sky high. I cannot emphasize this enough: Don't do Nightmare or Inferno for your first playthrough! You'll have to fight against your impatience to see where the story goes. It really impacts the pacing of your game. Once you finish the game and if you want to play a game for 30 minutes to an hour a day to relax, you can start doing a Nightmare/Inferno run. Yes, I just used "Inferno" and "relax" in the same sentence. CUSTOM DRACONIAN RESTRICTIONS A.I. teammates: Surprised this didn't make it in the game as an official restriction. You basically turn your game into Persona 3 FES with you giving only vague behavioral instructions to your teammates and you only control your Luminary directly. This also puts emphasis on "you are an individual person in another world" and not "the player that moves pawns around". Expect them to not be perfect, just like you are not perfect (people don't think they make mistakes during turn-based combat and resort to grinding shakes first in air) Dead Luminary = load game: Also Inspired by Persona 3 FES and SMT: Nocturne. Also compliments the "you are one person in another world" story narrative. No consumables during combat: This should have been an official Draconian Restriction. It emphasizes resource management in ways "no shops" wish it could. You have to be smart with your pep powers, and you cannot chug MP potions to make sloppy strategies viable. No metal slimes: A traditional speedrun category and one that should had been an official Draconian restriction as well. You cannot grind metal slimes for levels to outperform the enemies. Now you have to outsmart them. No seeds: Someone finished the 6 draconian restrictions with this restriction on top of everything else. FIRST PLAYTHROUGH RECOMMENDATIONS 1. No restrictions: For the story. 2. Stronger enemies + no escape or/and weak enemies give no exp. SECOND PLAYTHROUGH RECOMMENDATION No Armor + MAYBE Stronger enemies Reasons: Those are the only draconian options that matter, in my opinion. No shops makes gold worthless by a lot. No escape is bloody useless since you can pick your fights so it might as well not be there (a random encounter mod would bump no escape's value up). Shypox impacts only your main character and you can work around it by ditching the main character whenever possible, plus it's more annoying in towns than combat. I guess you can add the no exp from weak enemies on top of no armor + stronger enemies BUT prepare for a gameplay that consists of fighting 1-2 fights and lots of run back to camp for hours and I don't find it entertaining. If a random encounters mod ever appears: No armor + no escape. That's all, thanks for reading!

    Why does the product page have an option to choose your size, but the search results show every size option. They might wanna fix that. Not good web design. Confuses the average visitor.

    This has been a difficult subject for me because for me, the music is part of the games. Ok, XI has a weak soundtrack. But I can't imagine something like VIII without that beautiful tower music. And then he goes and says/does things like this... Sugiyama's a jerk, and I just have to separate the art from the artist.
