Just after I hacked my 3DS. Sounds about right

The key system was so fun! It's the game I probably spent the most time with on GBC, actually breeding or catching every monster in the game.

See, I’m the same way. Unfortunately I didn’t have a link cable so I could transfer/breed stuff between the two versions, but I still played both trying to get as much as I could. I made the most progress in Tara’s version.

How'd you do that? Follow a guide? How hard was it?

Been a couple months and I still can't figure out if I should hack my extra 3DS or extra Vita.

It wasn't hard, it was just a lengthy process. There's a guide that tells you everything to do. Obviously, you have to make sure you do everything correctly or brick your system.

Works great though. Imported XI just for this and I installed Terrys Wonderland the other night. Haven't had much time to play either though as I'm trying to finish up XI on PC.

If you're interested, here's the guide I used:

I feel like I should get the fan translation for Terry’s Wonderland. I was enjoying the game but just stopped for whatever reason. Language barrier wasn’t the issue either, but having all the text in English would be nice.

Loved it. Basically 99%'d the game with every post-game thing complete and all but 1 of the optional travelers gates completed. Couldn't beat Estark, mainly because I didn't have anyone able to cast sleep, and I didn't want to grind to get that ability bred in with Joker 3 looking me in the face.

I could never get into Joker 2. Is Joker 3 any different?

Oh yeah. I read your review already. Guess I asked a stupid question.

Nah. We all read 1000 things a day. It really was quite fun. I wish there were more people playing it to bounce questions off of and such. I didn't do post-game. It's a lot like the other Joker games in terms of island hopping, but some great new mechanics!

HI there. I've desperately been trying to find some way to "safely" hack my console too, and your link does look promising. However, there's mentions of "stock 2DS". I assume that's the first 2DS, the one you can't fold onto itself (Google search didn't help sadly). Is this compatible with New 2DSXL? :c

I'd really like to success in installing something to allow me playing English patched Japanese games and GBA games too.

Man, this sucks.

Wish I could've been more help to the team, but my own life has been rather hectic this year (I was homeless/couchsurfing for a few months, not anymore but I'm still in the process of getting my life back together).

Unfortunately I lack the skills needed at this point anyway, but I do wish Helmax and the team the very best of luck. Hopefully someone with the right skills (or the time to learn them) comes along soon.

I'm not dead, jeez.  Believe it or not, I started on Terry's Wonderland a long, long time before we announced anything about it.  It took me many months, several times, to overcome all the hurdles to get to a playable point.  Every now and again, I would run into another month long stumbling block.  I just need to find time to get back on this again.

Haven't seen you around in a while. Sent you a PM. Would love to chat at some point!

I truly hope this can get off the ground again. Due to the significant cuts Joker 3 made, this seems like the definitive Monsters game. Would it be possible to release the script, so English speakers could play while reading it? I don't mean to be a nag, especially as I'm a newb, but just a suggestion.
If you haven't listened, we chatted with the lead gentlemen behind the effort.

Thank you for showing me that! I completely get why it stalled, yeah. Real life, of course, comes first. But it's good to know it's not OVER, even so!
He said it's letting up, so hopefully he can find that needle in that haystack soon!

I've chosen my moniker for this site based on what I'll do when I get the chance to play this. I intend to have a proverbial "Living Pokedex" of final bosses from throughout the series - one of each, all at the same time. As most of their synth chains require others, this means I'll be making most of them multiple times. That's why this game in particular is so important to me - it included every flavor of demon lord from throughout the series at the time of its release. Joker 3, to my moderate horror, actually cut three final bosses (Magarugi, Xiphos, and Gadis) and several other cool monsters for palette swaps and generic-looking robots for reasons I have no idea of. 

I'm not sure how feasible this goal will actually be, though - I know some bosses require (ugh) promo monsters and I don't know if there'll be any way to get them in the ROM.

I had close to this in my original Cobi DQM2 cart. I ended up filling my whole 312 DQ-dex, mainly by breeding & trading across the link cables. It was my most memorable DQ experience. I don't think I'll go for it here because yikes, you're looking at making dozens of lower tier bosses such as Dragon Lord, but I 100% commend your efforts!

This is definitely a game I'll be dropping everything to play when it gets finished. I have faith Z6n4 eventually will find the way to do so!
