Yes, it does. I fixed a bug with the title screen saying RC1 that was pointed out by Nightcrawler. You may want to wait till it's approved to get that version.

Before I jump for joy, I have to ask: was the script edited as well?

A bit, but only where necessary.

May I ask the odds of a version 1.1? Barring random mishaps will this be the be it?

Well, 1 crash has already been reported and fixed. I guess I could call a version 1.1 but I'll probably just update the 1.0.

Thx DaMarsMan, you are TEH man!!   :woot!: :beer: :woot!: Finally all remakes on the SNES are available in english, which makes it possible to play all of the best DQ versions out there if you take the offical DS remakes into consideration, too.

I was going to ask about the script as well, since it was the thing I thought needed the most work from the last release.

Looks really good, but I still found quite a few awkward sentences, typos, etc, within the first few minutes... so you may want to further revise the script.

Also something about the "periods" kind of bugs me...  they really should be single pixels... and the fact that all the ellipsises are 4 instead of 3.

Ah well, just happy to be able to play it.

I've spent a lot of time revising the script. The whole point of the RC1 was for people to email me what they wanted changed.

Yay!!!

Edit:  I think you need more beta-testers for the script.  There are a lot of us here who would like to help you with that.

Do you still have that first patch? Or anyone else?

I have the first patch.

Edit:  The patcher he uses doesn't work with zsnes soft patching because he's using IPS to expand the rom by including an offset that's greater than the current file size, leaving a lot of space undefined when zsnes loads it into memory.  Me, I put a bunch of zeroes at the beginning of my .ips files to expand my roms.

If you hard-patch the rom, it'll work.

Hmm, well I can't really see any way around that. If I ask them to expand first they still end up in the same place. I used UIPS. I'm not a fan of soft patching because ROMs are so small nowadays.

Yeah, it sucks to ask people to expand their roms.

Well it is not that bad, most of the patches I had reported no problems for me, but at least there is one thing about an expanded rom, no script and/or large font compression needed.

Bug found changing classes
« Reply #17 on: September 13, 2009, 10:14:16 pm »
I've tried this in multiple versions of ZSNES and the latest version of SNES9x and it all ends up the same way.

I promoted one of my characters into a Sage using the Zen Book, which was successful. However, whenever I try to promote another character to any class, the game crashes before the promotion can finish.

Older versions of ZSNES causes the emulator to crash. SNES9X will continue to function and the music will continue to play, but the picture ends up all screwed up.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any fix?
