[19:04:20] <Dominus> hey ho
[19:04:34] <Dominus> I now have the PSX version of UW1
[19:05:48] * Dominus is talking to the log and hopes Vividos sees it
[19:06:34] <Dominus> The cutscenes of the PSX version are way nicer. Not sure if the language is in english or japanese as the emulator played it much to fast
[19:06:40] <Dominus> I presume japanese though
[19:07:02] <Dominus> the interface is awful
[19:07:31] <Dominus> especially if you don't have a PSX controller :-)
[19:08:42] <Dominus> objects on the floor are as not-3d as the PC version's
[19:09:08] <Dominus> I have not yet encountered an NPC so don't have an idea how that works
[19:09:14] <Dominus> looks, I mean
[19:09:33] <wjp> first npc is fairly close to the entrance
[19:09:51] <Dominus> written stuff is in japanese and thus very bad to navigate
[19:10:01] <Dominus> I have not yet found him
[19:10:37] <Dominus> but as I can't save (can't read where) I always have to start again :-)
[19:11:02] <wjp> do you have a screenshot?
[19:11:13] <Dominus> not yet
[19:12:25] <Dominus> will make some
[19:16:34] <Dominus> grr, now the emulator is not working...
[19:34:18] <Dominus> http://members.chello.at/dominus/PSOGL2_001.jpg
[19:34:35] <Dominus> up to PSOGL2_011.jpg
[19:38:04] <wjp> highlighted choice at in 001.jpg: hajimekara = from the beginning
[19:39:21] <Dominus> the other is probably from memory card
[19:39:58] <wjp> I know some kanji from 10 too
[19:40:14] <wjp> first two characters of the third line are 'today'
[19:40:34] <Dominus> I found an option in the emulator to save without emulating a memory card
[19:41:07] <Dominus> in 10 it asks if you want to sleep (I guess)
[19:43:08] <wjp> hm, the font is a bit awkward
[19:43:57] <wjp> it ends with shimasuka as hiragana, but the kanji in front of that is a bit hard to make out
[19:45:24] <wjp> s/shi/ri/.. *sigh*
[19:47:28] <wjp> yes, it does look like it's something like "set up camp?"
[19:47:51] <wjp> "kyampu wo harimasuka?"
[19:48:17] <Dominus> the interface of the emu is also very cumbersome...
[19:48:34] <wjp> ('kyampu' is probably a nice engrish form of camp)
[19:50:50] <wjp> the top option in 011.jpg is 'seebu' (save)
[19:51:14] <Dominus> ah
[19:51:41] <wjp> second one 'roodo' (load)
[19:53:11] <wjp> third 'opushon' (options?)
[19:53:20] <Dominus> added some more screens up to 16 now
[19:53:32] <wjp> gotta love how japanese write 'english' :-)
[19:59:43] <Dominus> more added, up to 21
[19:59:54] <Dominus> look at PSOGL2_017.jpg
[20:00:05] <Dominus> nice spell interface
[20:04:27] <wjp> 14: bakkupakku :-)
[20:04:41] <wjp> I think I can guess what that should be :-)
[20:05:11] <wjp> hm, you can 'store' a few spells?
[20:05:31] <Dominus> i guess bakku is runes :-)
[20:05:43] <Dominus> I think it shows you availlable spells per cycle
[20:06:27] <Dominus> you can then select it and in the game screen you see the selected runes in the upper left, right to the torch and other square
[20:06:40] <Dominus> I just don't know how to activate it yet
[20:20:39] <Dominus> ugh, ugly 3D-models
[20:22:08] <Dominus> and nice animation when you die
[20:22:50] <Dominus> see screenshots up to 34 now
[20:24:26] <Dominus> the lok of the screen might be something for Vividos to look at
[20:24:40] <Dominus> the look of the game screen I mean
[20:28:17] <Dominus> PSOGL2_035.jpg and PSOGL2_036.jpg feature another two bad 3D-models
[20:34:22] <wjp> heh, that goblin (I hope? :-) ) in 027 is really rather bad :-)
[20:35:28] <Dominus> in 35 you see one of those worms
[20:35:35] <Dominus> and 36 a lurker
[20:35:53] <wjp> hm, looks like I'll have to increase the gamma a bit to see anything on those two
[20:37:09] <wjp> ooh, lots of details on those :-)
[20:37:48] <Dominus> I have another with a bat
[20:37:54] <Dominus> that one looks not too bad
[20:39:24] <Dominus> PSOGL2_037.jpg
[20:47:07] <Dominus> and the intro is in japanese, btw
[20:51:38] --- Dark-Star|away is now known as Dark-Star
[21:07:29] <Dominus> sent a mail to the ML and the dragons newsgroup. People probably want to see these screens
[21:08:16] <Dominus> btw, dragons, apparently my being a dragon is exaggerated as I have fallen of the roster at some point.
[21:52:18] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("a pooka invited me to Charlie's")
[22:29:18] <wjp> well, I got most of screenshot number 009...
[22:30:05] <wjp> "Your stomach is (something), and your eyes are awake. This is the first level of the Abyss. Today is one day after your capture. It is now probably evening."
[22:30:58] <wjp> ("hara ga (something)kurete iru. Soshite, me ga samete iru. Koko wa, abisu no 1 kai da. Kyou wa, toraerarete kara 1 hi (something). Tabun, ima wa yuugata goro darou.")
[22:33:32] <wjp> hm, make that s/capture/imprisonment/
[22:56:48] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
