pintsizepond asked: Is there anything we can do for you, since you've done something so meaningful for us?
This project is as much for me as it is for all of you. I just want you all to enjoy the game (and maybe liveblog it a little, hehe).
For those who have the older version of the games, please keep sending in bugs reports. I’ll probably have the next version of the game available by this weekend, so I want to get as many fixes as I can. For the rest of you, just hang on tight.
Most importantly, I want all of you to do me a favor. First, you gotta do a little dance. Then you gotta make a little love. Finally, y’all gotta get down tonight.
Okay, I think I have a plan. Rather than give you all the complete rom file to download (which violates copyright rules), I think I should be able to give you a “patch file” which will allow you to patch your own copy of the rom. It’s technically all legal, since I’m not providing you with the rom itself.
I just gotta figure out a way to make the process as easy as possible so you all can enjoy your game.
thatdizkid asked: Wait what do you mean by clobbered?
I mean they deleted the posts for Copyright Violation and told me they would ban my tumblr account if I continue offer the game for download.
Wow, it looks like Tumblr just clobbered a bunch of the posts related to the True Love Edition. I may not be able to continue posting about it here, or any future True Love Edition stuff :[
Anonymous asked: Is there any way to download True Love Edition without having to download a downloader? I try to not having a million installer programs on my computer...
You shouldn’t need to use their downloader program. There should be a second link for regular download mode
thedivinetreasury asked: Hi! Just got this emulator pack and I love it. Would the cheat codes from gameshark or some other site made for fomt work on this?
Yes! Gameshark codes and other codes for FOMT and MFOMT should work just fine. I’ve been doing that so I can pummel through character events to test some of the changes.
idiotasiwillkillyou asked: For Harvest moon True Love edition, do I have to choose one or the other or can I play both the boy and girl versions (separately of course)?
I don’t think I can stop you from playing both even if I wanted to….
innerdecay asked: Hey there! I wanted to ask whether you plan/consider making a TL Edition of Tale of Two Towns (NDS) someday. That would be pretty awesome ^^
I’d love to do more TL edition of Harvest Moon games. Going to NDS is a whole new animal, though. It might be easier or harder, so I can’t really make any promises. I will say that I will be looking into it.
By the way, if y’all know of anyone who is liveblogging any of the True Love Edition games, let me know. I totally want to watch.
Found Stu’s greeting dialogue in Boy edition when you befriend with him. I once saw someone refer to the main character as Her too but I didn’t capture it O<—<
Ugh, I couldn’t tell if he was talking to Elli during that conversation. Thanks for the bug report. I’ll get that in once I get a handful of fixes.
mysterygeust asked: i know it is a ROM hack but is there Harvest Moon true Love Edition gba cartridge?
Funny you should ask that…
You can do it through a special piece of hardware called a “GBA Flash Card”. They cost about $40 or so, but I don’t know if they still manufacture them.
Anonymous asked: I might seem stupid for asking this... But what kind of emulator do I need for the game..? ..I'm really really slow. .-.
There are also a bunch of android emulators, but I’m still trying to figure out which ones I like.
phanerozoicflora asked: Hey, I think it's awesome what you're doing with the FOMT and MFOMT games, and you did a good job of it! I just wanted to let you know that in the FOMT version (with the girl sprite) the dialogue screen seems to sort of flash, like the pixels keep switching in and out of transparency. It doesn't interfere with game play, but you mentioned wanting to know if anything weird was going on.
This is a weird problem with the emulator software, not the game itself. Try this and see if it gets better.
In VBA-M, go to Options -> Video -> Render API and turn on Motion Blur. It should help with the transparent pixels.
I just want to say thanks to everyone who sent in messages. This is the stuff that really kept me going on this project.
Special thanks to Innerdecay and Coffee-Milkshake for sending in those scripts. Definitely saved me some time. I’ll have to do a second pass at some of the dialog to make sure I got everything. Please let me know if anyone continues to find script edits that I missed.
Also, I think this is a good time to let you know that I’m obsessed with reading the tags in your reblogs. I even wrote a small program to creep on your blog tags automagically, hehe.
okay, time to clean out some inbox….
