    Before anyone asks. It's not the same kind of game all the other Super Robot Wars games are. It's an RPG in the sense of walking around a world map and getting into random battles. Battles are conducted like in Namco X Capcom. Basically you do a series of attacks creating insane combos (think "Tales of" games, but you don't move around on a field)

    It doesn't seem to work on DS-X version 1.1.2 or 1.1.3.

    On 1.1.2, it gives a white screen (no arm7fix) or a japanese error message.

    On 1.1.3, it gives a japanese error message either way.

    Hope this works on R4 and is playable for those of us with little/no japanese knowledge.

    Out of the corner of your eye

    Nope ... pretty Japanese intensive ... I played it for an hour before, and Japanese literacy is a must ...

    well it's playable, but not understandable...

    with a good faq, menus should be easy to use

    [EDIT] I DO confirm Boobs [​IMG]

    Damn it, hopefully my limited Japanese knowledge will be enough to have some fun with this. Maybe it'll be easy to translate too, that'd rock (that's not a request, if anything I will be ripping this apart ASAP).

    Has anyone gotten this to work on M3 perfect?

    I can't remember if I have firmware 34 or 35, but 4x DMA, and safe mode didn't work. It wouldn't let me pick normal mode. And I tried Arm7 fixing it but got the same result.

    this game is so damn good but not playable if you don't know Japanese or if you didn't play Namco x Capcom or super robot wars

    hopefully i'm used to these games [​IMG]

    really hope that this game comes out in English tho i really doubt it

    but in the end this game is a must [​IMG]

    Albeit the very definition of a mediocre S-RPG, Namco X Capcom was a fun time sinker, if only for the button mashing gameplay battles. Now that they got rid of any pseudo S-RPG, this should prove quite entertaining. Hope the combos are even more crazy this time around, and that KOS-MOS takes the crown again as the unbeatable tank.

    EDIT ; oh, and what's with the major boobage ? Seriously, that's becoming quite ridiculous. Well, at least Banpresto sure knows their main target audience...

    Curiosity piqued.
    Rom pulled apart.

    Directory structure:
    not good. Basic overlays, binaries and whatnot but everything contained within a large SRL file. Fortunately support for the format exists but delving into that is equally fun.
    Everything is contained within directories.
    pk* files are the main files within the directories and AHX sound is used (I did not check to see whether it was actual ahx or just a coincidence, were I a betting man I would choose the former as it has been seen in games)
    Font is ntfr and I see roman characters with a nice bunch of other characters with a fairly nice appearance.

    No obvious compression in files (I am seeing very simple repeating sections running in hundreds of kilobytes).
    I only did a quick scan through but text files were not obvious like some games.

    This is just a very quick scan mind you and I have not played yet so I am not sure if it is enough for me to break my temporary translation embargo (I will certainly play second fiddle to someone though).

    Yes, but there are breasts, so...

    No Japanese required to lust over not-quite-hentai anime chicks. [​IMG]
