They both have their merits. The DS version has had its randomness balanced, but I've also heard it described as being too balanced. A good example is the Farsight Bracer, which is an item that when worn will always let you see the entire map immediately, as well as the activity and placement of all the enemies. If you know how to fully make use of it, this is enough of an advantage to single-handedly win you the first quest all by itself. In the DS version, it only appears in the last half of any dungeon, whereas it can appear at any point in the SNES version. I had one play-through where the game spawned me two spaces away from the bracer in the very first room. The odds on that happening are astronomical, but those kind of truly random possibilities are what I personally prefer. One thing to keep in mind is that my item manager only works with the SNES version. However, there are plenty of checklists online for the DS version if you choose to go that route.
A pretty big difference in the DS version that can be seen as a positive is that the final 99 level dungeon reworks the last fifth its rooms. In the SNES version, level 79 contains as powerful an array of enemies as will exist until the end. The DS version creates a few more power evolutions that can make the last leg a bit more interesting. No matter which version you choose, I'll give you two good tips to get going. First, If you visit the Tavern in the town before each outing, the bartender will always give you a rice ball to stave off starvation. Second, you can visit Fei the researcher before each outing and test one of his tutorial rooms. Not only does each one teach a VERY valuable lesson about the game's possibilities, but afterward he'll also always give you an item to take with you on your main journey. I know that in the SNES version, the item he gives is drawn from the entire pool of items that are available in the first quest, so this can be a huge advantage.
Thanks for the reply. Not the expected answer, but at least some clarification on the status quo.
Works for me. I will pay respect to what is found as formatting in a file (and not procject atm) and will format my edits accordingly.
And also pledge to other PR issuers to do the same (if they haven't done so in the past).
However, if the maintainers ( @herb_fargus , @petrockblog@psyke83@BuZz ... ) have a informal list of format styles ready (or want to discuss/collect them here) I am more than willing to transform them in a formal formatter config with a formatting tool is easily available for the Linux and Windows platform.
Sorry for pinging you all, but I wanted to make you all aware that I missed two erotic games.
The games in question are Bubble 2000 (bubl2000) and Pang Pang (pangpang).
Sorry for missing them: especially so if any of you have children. Thank Malachiel from our Discord server for informing me about those two games. If any of you have found any games in the erotic, casino, mahjong, or quiz genres, then please let me know: especially so when it comes to the erotic ones.
Thank you @zerojay ! This is tremendous. Very easy to install, and after a minor issue with the vgm directory permissions, was able to get everything up and running....kind of.
Few issues below. Any help would be much appreciated. *Update Recreating the autostart.sh file fixed issues 1 and 2.
Both the playmusic.sh and generatem3u.sh scripts are running without issue, but music will not start automatically after boot.
I can start it by running the playmusic.sh script from the command line (or via ssh), but it only plays through HDMI port. I don't see anyplace in the vgmplay config file to point it to the Headphone output on RPI4.
The playlist does not loop. Playback terminates after reaching the last item in the m3u file.
Hi all! It's been a while! Gravedigging this post to let everyone know I updated the links. I've been getting an uptick in people asking permissions to view/edit the files in Google Drive (!!! that's really cool) but I can't manually fulfill them all, so check the OP for updates or try these mediafire links: Instruction Booklet doc Back Cover doc Booklet pdf
