Map Requests / RE: Anyone good with Japanese?
« on: July 21, 2009, 09:49:30 pm »
I'm not sure I'd call it trading they're doing... it's more like "Go fetch this item for me! Go find this person! Go get permission first!", that sort of thing.

Too bad I can't post images, otherwise it'd make explaining things so much easier. Oh well.

Starting with the vertical window with the two icons. The first one with the face crying "Help!!" tells you how many Wally Watchers are remaining to be rescued in the level. The second one with the dial is where you can change the sound settings and button controls.

The next window to the right is the current person or item you need to find.

To the right of that are the "equipped" items with which you use during gameplay. What's in it for me right now is the Magic Stick, Gloves, and a Lollipop (which they name "Red Candy").

The long horizontal window with the rotating presents is where the presents for Wenda's birthday party are kept. So far I've got Wenda's favourite flower and a stone axe.

The small window at the bottom with the question mark coming out of a box is where the contents of the presents are shown when you select one.

And lastly the window beside that is where all the written info is displayed.

Hope that makes things a little more clear. :)

Wally wo Sagase is actually not that bad of a game, once you get into it. :) As I'm playing it, I'm constantly opening and closing my DS when I'm not sure of a word, heheh. But if the stone age area is the first level, it's taking quite some time to get through it. Right now I'm searching for the last ingredient for Nana's stew so Uga, her husband, doesn't go and eat the Wally Watchers he's holding captive for dinner... or that's what I think is going on, haha. :D

Yeah, might as well. This would be a great way to practicing my reading skills, if for no other reason. :)

I know a bit of Japanese, nowhere near fluency (still working on that), but I can navigate my way through a Japanese game and more or less get the gist of what's going on. I think I would be interested, but right now I'm rather busy with preparing for art shows and making sure I pass my summer course, so something like this would pushed off to the side for the moment.

Heh, might as well post a bit here. :)

I haven't had much time over the last year or so to play many games at all, nor have I had much interest in doing so. Producing a body of work (i.e. paintings) had been my number one priority, so there wasn't much room for anything else. But even now that the term's over and I've got all this free time, I tend to gravitate more towards reading manga. But in any case! :)

The one game I've been playing most recently has been Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. This series is always a lot of fun, though picking the right piece of evidence when it's not totally clear can be a bit of a chore. Other DS games that I've had on hold for a while include Final Fantasy III, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, and Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard. Oh! But the one "game" that I've been "playing" quite a lot over the last few weeks has been Kanji Sono Mama Rakubiki Jiten! lol XD

That's been pretty much it as of late.

Thank you! I find them a lot of fun to stitch together. :)

Currently working on adding all the item labels to the rest of the maps, so they should be all done in a few days or so.

Checked them and they're okay.

The in-game map enlarges from just the continents to the entire world once you get the ship in Reiyold. I was always curious what that formation was all about, so maybe that's it.

There's a house behind those mountains that's only accessible when you have the ship, and as it says, it's a music/sound effects test room. Since it's hidden, I didn't bother indicating what was there. Though now that I think about it, maybe a transparency would be more appropriate.

Thanks you guys! :D

Yep, it's my first big one. It actually pushed me to work in Photoshop instead of Paint because early on I found when piecing together big chunks that a lot of inconsistencies showed up, so I pretty much had to start over again. XD

Heheh, interesting synchronicity! Once I get some of these projects out of the way, I might take on what remaining maps need to be done for FF4 or FF6, if no one else beats me to them. ;)

The map is all ready to go, so go right ahead. :)

Map Gab / Paladin's Quest

Hey everyone. :D

Until now, I had been an active lurker (heheh) here for the past few months when I first discovered VGMaps. In that time, I resurrected a mapping project that had been lying dormant for eight years (I can't believe it's been that long... O_o), and that project is Paladin's Quest, one of my favourite RPGs for the SNES.

I have most of the game mapped out already, so it'll only be a matter of time before everyone gets to see them, but for now I'll post the overworld map.'sQuest-LennusWorldMap.png

I probably spent at least 20 hours working on this thing, most of that time spent lining up all those islands in the ocean hemisphere and making sure the ocean currents were done properly. But for the most part I'm really happy with it. What do you all think? :)

Some other mapping projects I'd like to start (or have already started) include: Lennus II, Lufia and the Fortress of Doom, and The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang.

I'm better known on the net as zanazac (, but for here, I thought I'd try out a different name. Nice to meet you all. :D
