  1. The 3DS version also has its own unique touch, with a mix of 2D and 3D graphics in two screens. I think this is a wonderful idea. I wish they did this for all the previous ds remakes. Where I found this: http://www.siliconera.com/2015/07/28/dragon-quest-xis-first-3ds-footage-shows-its-2d-and-3d-styles/
  2. I know this is not proper forum etiquette but it is eating me up inside. Been waiting for this title to be translated for years! Has anyone heard anything at all about this translation? I even bought a japanese playstation and the game just so I'd feel like I wasn't stealing it. I could have learned to read japanese in all this time and beaten the game. I feel shamed for not taking that route. Thank you to anyone who has any information.
  3. I quit for the same exact reason. Their community is completely self destructive and vile towards one another. There are devices you can buy to do this but your avg person would be totally clueless.
  4. I'd put a lot of hours into a romhack of Final Fantasy that allowed you to capture monsters like in DQM. *salivates*
  5. Done streaming after 4 hours and 35 minutes. took a 5 minute lunch snack so 30 minutes. Had a few minor set backs like my cleric dieing twice and my hero dieing once. Some difference on the snes version compared to the GBC version are but not limited to: 1. Battle Backgrounds - I can't say enough how much this improves the gameplay, they even reflect day night. on the gbc version there is no colorful background battle art. 2. There are numerous name changes obiously the first one that I recall is the Magic Ball on the GBC is called Magic Bomb. 3. The menu kind of bugs me having to select Talk or Search. On the GBC version you had two buttons search area/interact and menu. I like the GBC button setup better. I do know you can hit X or left bumper on the controller to search on the snes version. 4. The Art is better on the snes version. 5. on the snes version when you're on a tower there is a tree background with a view of mountains and sky. on the GBC version I believe it is all black. 6. The item art when you find items in chests or books on shelves looks way better then the GBC art. 7. One things that is in favor of the GBC version is that it has the ability to save anywhere with the start button I believe. I mentioned more differences while I was streaming but I can't remember them all. Here is a link to the past broadcast that I streamed: http://www.twitch.tv/blackraven3000/b/518387788 Thank you for anyone who even popped in for a minute to check out the stream I really do appreciate your views! I try to do a little voice acting for main quest dialogue even if I sound funny lol. I will post when I start streaming/playing again, tomorrow. After 4H:30M I made it to Ashalam and hung out till night time when you meet the puff-puff girl and her father gives your shoulders a massage. LOL I'm not a speed runner but this is a personal best for me to get this far in that amount of time. My last best time was around 5 or 6 hours to get to this point. Here is what my party looks like now.
  6. I've played through and beat DW3 100% 4 times. once on the nintendo in person and three times on the gameboy color in person. out of the three times beating it on the GBC I've beat it with a full party, hero+1 party member, and the last time I beat it with only the hero and no party. I was somewhat inspired by a recent post by knighTeen87 (Interesting party in DQ3). I have not beat DQ3 on the snes before and by doing so i will be able to check it off my list of dragon quest games i've beaten. I will be playing with a snes usb gamepad using an emulator (snes9X) and the patched translation of DQ3. I just bought the the DQ3 super famicom japenese cartidge off ebay which i should be getting in a couple weeks to add to my collection. I won't be using fast forward ever during my play through as I feel it breaks the immersion of the gameplay. (When i did my play through on the GBC with only the hero I had no fast forward option because i was playing it on the handheld GBC. Imagine how fun that grind was... lol) Here is a break down of my starting party. It is by no means perfect but I did not want to spend the amount of time it would have taken to get it perfect. If it is allowed I'll be doing daily updates on my progress. I am by no means a power gamer but due to my familiarity of the game I think I will breeze through it. Feel free to comment along the way!
  7. A server/client setup that utilizes rom information to display and script a dragon quest game that would be online. Personally I was thinking dragon warrior monster 2 or dragon warrior 3 snes. I'm sure you all have your opinions on which game would be best. You log into with the client to the server and it puts you at the beginning of the game, for DQM2 you'd be on the boat and would have to go talk to your Pa then to your sister. For DW3 you'd start in the forest and proceed to the personality test. Of course all this would be scripted so that it felt like you were actually playing the single player game. Allowing everyone to play through the game as though it was single play but with multiple people at the same time at multiple parts in the story. That was a bit of a long winded way to say what I meant. Anywho I know of a game/mmo that is doing this already and I've known about them before they blew up in popularity. Some of you I'm sure are familiar with pokemmo, a server/client setup that utilizes the pokemon fire red GBA rom image. I presume they do this to avoid copyright issues as everyone who has the rom image should legally own the game and then they don't have to distribute the poke art files. I have been digging and digging on how they accomplished this with less then amazing results. I'm not a rom hacker myself and only up until recently have I decided I want to start snooping in roms. I believe that they are using light weight java game library as a wrapper to handle the graphics, audio, input and that business. How they coded their server end is beyond my current expertise. They are extremely secretive about their development team so trying to search for info is a no go. I was wondering if any of you had interest in a DQ mmo of sorts.

  9. Bianca & Alena. Bianca more then Alena though. I like my DQ ladies to have some pride,.. and better clothing.
  10. Thank you all for the kind welcomes. When I said I've been coming to this site for years I wasn't joking. Some of your names have some familiarity to them and I have a rough idea how you present your self here in the den. Sorry if that sounds creepy, didn't intend to make it sound that way. I used the Whipbird as my primary healer, Mummy as my melee dps and i'm having trouble remembering my spell dps monster. I don't much have a favorite. I posted in the DQM favorite breed thread that I prefer zombies and birds. Highjump is one of my favorite abilites. Thank you and it is a very nice slice if I say so myself. I feel like I've seen this before. thanks, got it! lol Hello Yeah The DW3 NES cartridge was originally my old brothers I pretty much got it as a hand me down. Years before ps1 and n64 hit the market. I was rather privileged by some of the amazing games I played as a child thanks to them. Thank you!
  11. big fan of DQM, I favor zombie and bird breeds. Mad Raven, Rot Raven.. I think you get the theme. HighJump is one of my favorite Mad Raven moves.
  12. a short introduction so here we go. I've been playing Dragon Quest/Warrior games since I was a very young child. My first hands on experience I recall was Dragon Warrior 3 on the NES. for my 10th birthday I asked my parents for dragon warrior 1+2 for the GBC. My father got my Dragon Warrior 3 on the GBC by mistake. Probably one of the greatest good mistakes of my entire life. I still own my original NES, gameboy pocket and gameboy color. I instantly fell in love with DW3(GBC). Soon afterwards I met a friend who had dragon monster 1, it blew my mind! I'd been a child addicted to pokemon blue, gold and crystal but let's not talk about that. So seeing a dragon quest game that was so similar, I had to have it! I went to the store and was sad to see they no longer sold number 1. I quickly discovered dragon monster 2 cobi's adventure and tera's adventure but being a boy cobi appealed more to me then tera lol. I was hooked. Having these experience in my childhood among some other experiences thanks to having older siblings helped me grow a fond appreciation for the Dragon Quest series. I recall my first time playing translated version of Dragon Quest V on snes. I started playing and again was instantly hooked. It was similar to all the things I loved about DW3 and DM2 combined. So if you were to ask me my favorite DQ games I'd probably answer. Dragon warrior 3 (GBC or famicon<3), followed by Dragon monster 2, and finally Dragon Quest V. I'd also like to Thank you all for keeping this amazing site alive for years! I've been using this site for it's immense collection of information for years and occasionally lurking the forums. I don't recall the first time I found the site, just that it's been many, many years. I probably could say more but I think this is a good start. Feel free to ask question
