I wanna play DQ4 on PSX since that's the best version of the game. I understand kana very well and I know some basic kanji but I was wondering what is some essential vocab for playing DQ games? Other than たたかう、まほう、アイテム、 and enemy names that is.
Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to get this finished in time. I'll try to finish this later but I'm posting what I have for now. Requirements for playing the game: DQX USB storage with 16GB (It will be formatted in such a way that it will be unusable for anything but the game, so it would be a waste of space to use something much larger. Japanese Wii, or a Wii modified to have the region, online channel, and probably language switched to Japanese. The homebrew channel alone does not cut it because you need access to the Japanese online store as well as being able to start the game from the USB device instead of a disk. This means that you have to remove your account on the Wii Ware channel, which will delete any games you downloaded from it as well. If you have an older Wii model you can use Homebrew with Any Region Changer. If you have a newer Wii Saigan had success with his model LU70 Wii with Mod Mii created by XFlak. Internet for your Wii to use. If a VPN is needed, please see my VPN guide. (Not required to play, but extremely useful) USB Keyboard. You can probably just take the one from a computer and connect it and be able to use it. A Japanese keyboard is better since pressing Shift-2 won't give you an "@" symbol since that isn't where it is placed on a Japanese keyboard, but all of the Alphabet letters are where you expect them, so normal English can be typed without issue. Pressing "Caps Lock" will allow you to type in English without it getting changed to Japanese. If you buy the slime keyboard you can use that so that the characters on the keyboard match what the game shows on the screen. (Not needed) Classic Controller Pro. You can use it if you really feel more comfortable with it, but if you are used to playing Zelda with a Wii Remote, it shouldn't take long to master it on Wii Remote. 500 Free Wii Points The Japanese Wii system has an ambassador program where if you are helped by someone to connect to the internet you and the person who helped you can each get 500 Wii points. To be eligible you have to have connected to the internet for the first time in the last month. If this is the case, PM me and we can exchange Wii friend codes and I will help you through the process. This will give you half off a month of the game. Starting the game The game will need to be installed first, and updates will likely also need to be downloaded off the internet. I will give a more detailed description of the process once I have the game. Once the game is loaded you can play the offline part of the game. You should be able to change your name in the online world, but you won't be able to change your gender. Commands When playing the game offline Go on an adventure Make an Adventure Log Erase an Adventure Log Return the the Title The online start window looks almost exactly the same as the offline one. Last three commands are: Buy a ticket to play the game When you are having problems Log out. This is the main menu in game Talk Spell Item Battle Records Equipment Search Strength (Translated as Attributes in DQ9) Strategies (Translated as Misc. in DQ9) If someone invites you to join their party or be their friend a new command will temporarily show up on top allowing you to respond to their invitation. Battle Menu Offline Attack Spell Item Strategy (Also translated as Misc. in DQ9) Battle Menu Online The new command in the middle is Skill. Here are some statuses Poison Confused Cursed Paralysis Sleep Communication If you hold down B for a few seconds the "Common Sayings" menu comes up so that you can easily say something (rather than type it). They are also paired with gestures (which you can change). If you just memorize these sayings you can communicate with Japanese people without seeming odd. This is the first page of common sayings. Thanks! Hello! Do your best! Congratulations! You're welcome Nice to make your acquaintance! (Use this one when you or someone else joins a party) Great work (Though it is a saying you only say at the end of playing) I'm sorry OK to go? OK! I will try and add more to the translation guide for the main commands latter. Still need to add the manner guide. Especially when using a VPN it is extremely important that we are courteous and well behaved so that we aren't viewed as a danger to the friendly community atmosphere that the game aims for. One persons mistake could also lead to the IP getting banned, so you are putting others at risk as well. Main things are saying thank you when someone cheers you on or heals you.
Hello Guys, I just want to know if Dragon Quest Monsters 2 3D is playable with no knowledge of Japanese. I've been wanting to import a copy for ages, but i was kinda concerned about the fact that i don't know japanese. So, do you guys think it's playable? I'm mostly concerned about how i'm going to synthesize SS rank monsters since i have no guide to follow (That's in English) Plus i don't know the translated and Non-translated name of the monsters, so when i go to a Japanese Synthesizing guide site, translate google brings $#!& like Garumazzo which turned out to be Dr.Snapped. Like wtf? So yeah if you can, answer that question too. That's it guys, thanks in advance.
