Who wants to play DQ X Offline (PC) in English? :)

Recommended Posts

I've heard that the offline portion was removed in one of the later updates. So, I was wondering...is this still useable? Am I going to need some kind of older client?

The offline mode was indeed removed from all platforms except the Wii.  Even if you buy an old Version 1 disk that has the offline mode files, the first thing the game will do is force an update that will patch the game and remove the offline mode.  Unfortunately the game checks for an Internet connection and won't run without one, so simply being connected to the Internet won't work either.

 

To restore the offline mode, someone will have to rig something up to either bypass the online check, or trick the game into thinking it's already up to date.

That's so bizarre. Does anyone know the reason why the extended offline campaign was removed?

I once saw a post about it where they had said they didn't want to maintain it anymore.

 

It got replaced with a 3 part cut scene viewer online that summarizes the events of the extended offline mode.  The special item you previously received as a reward for clearing the extended offline mode can now be obtained by watching all 3 cut scenes.  After watching the 3rd one, you'll need to log off, and then log in again in order to receive your prize.
