Re: Getting all the beetles in D

Just finished speedrunning both categories for D, I'm not sure why I did that haha For All Beetles, I managed to get the 3rd chapter's beetle to spawn at the grating that closes off chapter 2 with the other 3 beetles being easy to find. Overall time was 35:58, which is really good for clearing this ...

Re: Getting all the beetles in D

Would the 4th chapter be after breaking the stained glass and entering the final hallway before the glass staircase to the final confrontation? Wasn't sure if a beetle could appear there or not, but I might have been running too fast. Either way, I might need to test this out and see if I can get t...

Re: Japanese Game Translation "Wish List"

Figured I'd give people some time to post, but maybe this part of the board is even more quiet than the rest :P Lots of options here, so I've got a lot of investigating to do!

Japanese Game Translation "Wish List"

With Dr. Hauzer translated successfully, I've been thinking about picking up another 3DO game to translate. I'm not sure which games have the script in plain text on disc, but won't know unless we look! I've briefly looked at Blue Forest Story, which seems to have at least some of the text on disc, ...

Off Topic: Long load times on a CDR might mean the laser is dying out. It's usually the first sign. It will probably still run originals fine though i bet.

Yeah, should be able to burn it and run it without any issues. Tested it with my Japanese FZ-10 and it worked just fine. The load times are painful at times though, so 4DO gives a much smoother experience :D

Re: Doctor Hauzer Beta Test Thread

Completed the game! Here is what else I noticed: Item #6 - When you find the first corpse, there's a line about "Why is it mummified?" The line uses the word 'dead', as if there were multiple bodies. The word 'corpse' would work better in my opinion. Item #7 - Examining the walls of the inside of t...

It's the OPDS file in the OrgData/stream folder! There's a few other cutscenes in that folder as well.

I didn't see the post-Main Menu scene where you enter the house, but I'll keep looking!

Re: Doctor Hauzer Beta Test Thread

Could you explain why that particular scene would be a problem? Is it because the text is too long to read in the time it's on screen? Or that the line won't fit in the subtitle space? If either of those is the case, you could probably get away with re-writing the line slightly to be shorter. Somet...

Wow, this is a great start! I played Beta 2 for a couple hours earlier today and I really like it so far.
