>Tips and tricks
>Artbook, soundtrack, manga, and other downloads
Tips and Tricks pastebin has been updated. We talked before about removing the SMTIV Questions Pastebin from the OP, it's still sitting in the Tips and Tricks pastebin in the SMTIV section though.
I removed the recommended reading Pastebin from the OP since it hasn't been updated in a while after asking. It's right here just in case someone wants to update it and add it back later on: http://pastebin.com/YppqPPjf
>Would like to try. In the same style as the original image, or..?
Artstyle doesn't matter. Just as long as they're all a similar height and width and are each holding a different number from 0-9.
I had forgotten how tiny the OP was with fewer links
The patch is out already, and we don't link directly to agtp's page on the OP either; nor do we link directly to any other megaten merchandise.
I sort of liked the reading pastebin because it might have gotten at least a couple of people to actually read some mythology, even without updates, so I sort of want it back too.
Shit appears to be going down in Demonic Gene.
If smiling shadow Flynn floating above the kingdom means anything. Also Yuriko died and Stan got his hands on a gauntlet. Good for him.
It's basically a alternate universe where Flynn wasn't born, with Walter/Jonathan as the main characters and a mysterious entity who looks like Flynn in both.
Included is a Navarre who isn't a dick, and the best faces in Demonic Gene.
Mastema even has another angel working for him named Abdiel.
>agtp's page on the OP either
It's not AGTP's page you humongous retard.
AGTP had nothing to do with KMT.
DDS translation should be in the OP because we want it to sell if we want to actually get the remaining 4 books translated, but you're too dumb to grasp that since you're a fucking pirate.
I'm not saying it was agtp. I was making a comparison. We don't link to agtp, so we shouldn't link to either the romahcking aerie post or the romhacking thread. It was sensible for the beta stages to increase feedback on it, but it's not really necessary anymore.
I get the sentiment with the QDS book, but honestly, it doesn't really compel me to think it should be in the OP, though it's not like I'll be mad if it stays there either. If others also think it should be there, I won't oppose.
Why are you so angry about this?
Katsuya is kind of oblivious, isn't he? he's been fighting demons and shadows all week with his mystical persona yet the idea of a parallel world is unfathomable to him
What's a supernatural setting without the one guy who denies any of it being supernatural? A shitty one, that's what.
Honestly I wanted to see Arcsys go ahead and add Dojima as a fighter in P4Arena because his story interactions would've been hilarious. If Katsuya wonders whether demons can be tried under the penal code I can only imagine what Dojima would make of everything.
Being a sentaifag, I can't help but to think that Flynn and Isabeau's bandanas should be switched. Other than that, its actually kind of terrifying how well their colors match with the general characterizations found in the Sentai series.
It's still silly because Katsuya has been using a persona since the start of the game! He's taken down bosses and killed cops with it. Yet he doubts a parallel world even when his own brother (but not really) tells him?
Maybe it's a localization thing
She's only into cute boys.
Unless they are actually ghosts.
There's no such thing as "supernatural". If something exists, it's natural. If it doesn't, then it's not real.
Katsuya was just trying to make sense of everything he's seen and alternate worlds was getting to be too much for him.
shit dropped image
I had the originals saved from a while back so I'm literally redrawing on top of them. Only somewhat less tiring than drawing from scratch.
Alice will be #6 actually since that'll require the least amount of editing, pic related. I'm a grill btw. Not that it matters anyway.
You know what I miss from the older Megatens?
Fucking robots all over the goddamn place in addition to the demon shitstorm going on.
You are just not ready to understand.
He makes some weird designs.
I think that the maken x design are the most interesting that he have done.

The original artist's colour choices are really nice. Should take some mental notes while finishing up the rest, maybe my own pixel art would be less shit haha
Do it yourself. It'll be your personal one or something. I'll even post the original #8 for you to fiddle with in photoshop or MS Paint or whatever program you use.
I came here to call you all faggots for telling me Raidou was shit.
I'm loving it.

>Claims P1P OST is better than P1 OST
>Posts one of the RARE examples of an actual P2P-style remake of a song instead of J-POP bullshit from P3/P4 like the rest of P1P soundtrack is
If only the whole P1P OST were remakes like that and also gave you an option to switch to the original.
On that note, if anyone has any actual draw requests I'm bored and looking to do a couple.
Any SMT protag with a duel disk in place of a COMP and a Jack Frost behind them.
>p3/4 sound filter
It's the other way around.
90s music was made with synth because live instruments are a lot more expensive and the hardware wasn't good enough for good quality recording playback anyway
P1P has actual real instruments.
You're asking far too much of me.
Every Vile demon is too much as well.
You asked twice so I'm inclined not to, but I'll see which I can get to before I get tired. I'll go down the list, aside from the ones I've said no to, until then.

And this is why I pirate all of ATLUS stuff.
Shit translations, shit dubs, no localizations, no dual audio, massive jewing and constantly telling europeans to fuck off.
You too can fuck off ATLUS.
BUT IT IS ENGLISH ONLY
THEY AREN'T DOING ANYTHING AT ALL FOR EUROPE
IT'S DIGITAL ONLY, ENGLISH ONLY
AND SOMEHOW YOU CAN DELAY A FINISHED, DIGITAL PRODUCT WITH UNLIMITED QUANTITY
FUCK YOU ATLUS
Region lock is more than just flipping a switch. The coding is different, so they have to reprogram some stuff. This can cause unexpected problems. Still, that doesn't explain why it's been so long though.
I think Nintendo of France said they were working on translating the game to French, then someone from Atlus said it was English only. So who knows
>Region lock is more than just flipping a switch. The coding is different, so they have to reprogram some stuff.
ACTUALLY IT IS JUST FLIPPING A SWITCH
JESUS FUCK YOU ARE A MASSIVE RETARD THAT KNOWS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT PROGRAMMING, OR GAMES FOR THAT MATTER.
You can still play on the JP servers. There's a few English clans on the Cerberus server. You'll only get banned if someone spots you speaking English in public.
>Still, that doesn't explain why it's been so long though.
I just want euro friends to enjoy my favorite SMT game and jam to Ikebukuro Underground District music
It's been this long because Atlus doesn't care about Europe. They know that all the smart fans over there already have either a Jap or NA 3DS and already own SMTIV so localizing it isn't a big priority.
Plus there was that whole bankruptcy and getting bought by Sega thing.

Would you want this?
Oh yeah, there was an anon asking for Orden's SMTII patch a few threads back, right? I couldn't find the patch, but I have a pre-patched ROM.
What is Kaneko doing these days? I wish he would come to some of the anime cons here. It would be the only way I could meet him, seeing that Atlus of Japan will not let a gaijin like me visit him there.
it's very deep symbolism on how we are prisoners of social media, desperate to keep up appearances to people we've never met and to look better than we are to people we already know, you just can't appreciate such complex themes. social media is the definition of putting on a personae; even this board consists of people who wish to appear in a certain way.
haha nah but i really wonder if they're gonna shoehorn some symbolism into p5's summoning animation or just make it look cool and nothing else like p4
I wish they would go back to just letting people called them forth like stands in P1 and P2. And have shadows that will try to talk to you. Think about it, after watching humans enough, a shadow might try to pull a teddie, and talk with a human during an encounter.
Shadow: Huu...HUUMM..HUUMAN! TaLk..ME sPEak....Yoo YOOOOOOOOOOUUU...!
Player: Will you talk with the shadow?
Yes or No.
>Streetpass someone with Soul Hackers

What if other people interacted with your social links, so the girl you were gonna ask to be your GF gets stolen away by some guy? Or a friend can't hang out with you because they have friends beside you who they want to see?? What if the friend of a friend hates you and tries their best to sabotage your friendship??? What if you could do the same????
What if something actually cool happened in Persona 5, guys. What ..if.
I would love that, because the whole power of friendship thing is a lie. In the end, the MC only has himself to both rely on and stand against. Remember you are your own best friend and worse enemy.
I love both versions of Shinjuku hospital. The first one has actually conveys the empty hospital vibe and the IV remix is catchy
More likely to see If... than SMT 2
>there is never going to be another Strange Journey
the all sidequests thing is a misconception
you just need to have a small amount of chaos and law points
however the margin is super slim for the neutral ending; you need to be between -15 and 15
all the other endings have a margin of 85 but neutral has a margin of 30
SMT IV was my first SMT game and I went in completely blind aiming for neutral and ended up with neutral. It just isn't that hard.
Once you get it it's a pain i the ass though. It's almost like the 2 other playthroughs combined with the sidequest becoming mandatory.
Strange Journey X Persona 2, when?
>start playing P1P and EP
>guys from gbatemp make progress on EPP
>canzah starts working on ost patch
Guess it's time to choose between SJ or finish IV, side with johnny and go law or side with walter and stay netural.
If I side with him I stay neutral.
Now I need to remember where to go, Burroughs here I come.
I'd be fine with it but I think handcuffs or something similar would be more likely
>Ethereal handcuffs appear around a persons wrists
>One party member summons by pulling his arms apart
>Another by breaking it over his knee
and so on
>is it really?
Nah. That was just speculation when the game was first getting trailers and such. I remember a lot of people thought that Tokyo was underwater, and we'd see the Great Flood that happened in SMT1. Turns out we were wrong.
The "sequel or not" thing doesn't come up that often. We know that SMTif... leads into Persona 1 which leads into the rest of the Persona games, for example.
SMTIV just has references to Strange Journey with the Demonicas and probably some other things. Stephen from the first SMT appears in it too.
Not just that one either. There was another book with a timeline that had it separate from Persona and part of SMT I & II. Megami Tensei I-II was also on it as a third separate timeline from Persona, Devil Summoner, and SMT.
The first Devil Summoner had them as well. Thorman died of a heart attack and Gotou was apparently mentally if I remember right.
So I finally get Izanami's robe, after playing the damn guessing game. I find a jar with a monster in it that tells me to use mappara places, accidentally wander in to Set and barely beat him with only Nakajima left alive. I happen to find a goddess statue that sends me to Bien's healer and while finishing the map in Bien the bottle demon tells me to mappara again but it leads to a damn warp puzzle.
Is this puzzle necessary?
This game is like a demon rollercoaster tycoon ride.
Maybe. Although it's hinted at that Hiriji is Aleph's reincarnation in that world, it's still only a "fan theory" since it was never full on confirmed. Fun to speculate though.
Not sure about MT1 & MT2, but if you are talking about SMT1 and SMT2, SMT2 has more content to be longer (At least for me). With the proper planning, you can get to post-nuke Jap in SMT 1 in an hour or two.
God damn, the Sea of Flames is so horrible. I'm super low on MAG so I'm forced to use no demons and either make barely any progress before teleporting back because I'm almost out of MP or trying to run from any battle with more than 2 enemies.
What the fuck? I guess I'm happy about this but it literally came out of nowhere.
Just import, you faggot. There's no justification for pirating shit you like. I have nothing against "pirates" but I really hate them hypocrites who think they're in the right.
Either learn Japanese or let your butt get raped by FatlusUSA.
You should support the creators.
Nobody "deserves" to be pandered to by fucking anybody, you self-entitled shit.
The only thing that can be done when being treated like shit by a company in any way is to simply vote with your wallet, and in this case that means not buying their products.
It's been obvious to Atlus for years now that there is in fact a fair demand for Megaten games outside of the US and Japan, but they choose to either not act on it (see: the current SMT IV debacle) or relegate it to terribly slow companies like Ghostlight.
I'm not advocating piracy either, so don't mistake me there.
Games that never get released over here?
Only mainline SMT Europe ever got was Nocturne and it was 9 years ago.
We didn't even get strange journey at all.
It's not pandering, releases would be nice.
But EU is getting Persona Q only a few days after us!
>Games that never get released over here?
Atlus has no EU branch. That's why Ghostlight and NISA have had to publish their games. Digital only they can do though, like SMTIV.
Though we know how ong that takes.
Who gives a fuck about Persona Q aside from P3/4 fags?
Let me ask this: why the fuck are we getting PQ so soon after the US is, while it's taken over a year and a half for SMT IV? We're still fucking waiting for it.
WE'RE. STILL. WAITING.
Soul hackers got released pretty quickly in Europe.
SMT IV is ridiculous, constant date changing is infuriating too, it's not even translated to other languages too, it's just US one without region lock.
>Who gives a fuck about Persona Q aside from P3/4 fags?
Me. It's a first person dungeon crawler, and it's more MegaTen. EO is fun as fuck.
Maybe because they're prioritizing it due to Persona being more popular? Maybe because the Index and Sega shit that went on is no longer an issue? I don't fucking know.
The sad thing is, if you guys don't buy SMTIV when it does release, you'll probably never see another non-persona release again.
>Games that never get released over here?
So you can't/don't enjoy them?
If that were the case you shouldn't be whining like a bitch, so we're safe to assume that you indeed enjoy the games that never were released over here which brings us back to my post where I said that pirating shit you like is a retarded thing to do.
Of course you can pirate that shit but then you should either import it afterwards or never cry again about yuropoor (or even burgerland if they only pirate over there too "because it is the right thing to do and muh freedoms") not getting them games.
Hey that's my list from last thread!
I'm DDS Anon by the way.
>SMT IV delayed AGAIN
Jesus Christ, I won't even have time to play it in October.
I have finished around 15 SMT games and I do not own any. They do not even deserve that SMT IV will be the first I buy.
Don't know which is which. I just go by DDS Anon now, cuz of all my DDS related posts and pics in this last week.
>trade = sucking dicks
I'm sorry but not everyone works as a prostitute like you.
How old are you?
replied only because I'm already making a post for that other faggot, same question for you and pls kill ur self if you're actually serious which I sure as hell don't want to believe. There is a limit of how great of an idiot one can be.
So, is there any news at all in regards to the other QDS novels? It's probably to early to be asking since volume 1 only came out like a month or so ago, but I really hope we get the rest.
I'm really enjoying the book so far.
No, CoDfags are worse. I've seen em. Never again.
>They do not even deserve that SMT IV will be the first I buy.
Of course I'm not angry. It would be ridiculous to get angry because of a post on an anonymous imageboard made by a 12 year old obese kid.
I'm just hoping you listen to my advice so that I can go to bed today knowing I did something good for humanity.
That would require me to get a console for one game. If it was America that wouldn't get it for so long it would make much bigger uproar and would you buy European 3DS to get that one game?
When did /smtg/ come down to this?
I thought we were better than /v/.
Let me illustrate the core flaw of your "logic"
>Import American 3DS (thus supporting American sales, but not European)
>Import American release of a game (thus supporting American sales, but not European)
>Company thinks the games don't sell in Europe
>Never localizes games
Literally same scenario as simply not supporting these cancerous tactics. You are still a dream customer of any corporation though, brand loyalists like you that think their beloved company knows better are the reason why capitalism is so shit and no different than socialism.
I'd also like to point out that you will probably buy P4U2, which is gutted out of dual audio in the US (despite P4U1 having such) and has already 100% finished localization (I'd know since I'm the one who unlocked English in JAP version), being withheld for no reason. And the funniest thing in all of this is that you idiots believe their bullshit about "not having enough space on the disc" despite Japanese version not having said problem. It's not even 13GB big, smaller bluray disc capacity is 25GB.
Maybe if you weren't blindly advocating supporting anti-consumer tactics then this conversation would've never happened.
I don't actually have it in PDF format, unfortunately. If you've got the cash to spare, it should be fairly cheap. The hard cover version cost me about $25, but I can't remember whether that included delivery fees since I'm not in america.
Oh, then you're Canzah. Now I understand everything.
You've always had this overly aggressive and offensive tone in your posts. If you want to argue, please, try being a little more polite.
Note that I do not completely disagree with you, because I know you were going to think I am "the enemy".
Reminder that there are people in this very thread who can't survive in a world of $TR
I was not even in this discussion. That was the first post I've made about it.
But you did exactly what I said. Overly aggressive post and implying I am against it.
Now I know you're just shitposting and do not actually care about what the discussion.
That's true but what makes you think anyone has to publish his game outside of the country it was made in? It's their decision even if it is stupid. At least they bring persona which will sell for sure.
I never said something about buying burgergames. I don't really care about localisation.
But what do you think is better if a game doesn't get an european release? Pirating it and spouting some shit like they're not worthy or at least importing the game from burgerland if you really can't spare some of your video game time for learning Japanese?
I mean if you're dependant on a localisation, why not giving the guys translating it for you money?
And, no, I'm not really interested in new persona games, thanks for the warning though.
Hard to tell at this point in time, since the first book pretty much comes to a close after the joint assault on the Solids base.
There are two key differences so far though, and both have made things interesting.
>I never said something about buying burgergames.

Geee I don't know maybe because it was announced that it was gonna be released in Europe?
Could any of you guys hook me up with a complete P1P system data ?
i want to replay it but my save is corrupted so i dont get the extra dungeons in either route,
Why did you have to remind me of fucking MACCA BEAM?!
I hated that in SJ, I hate it now!
Great, now I have to grind Demon Search demons for their drops to sell to get all my Macca back! Spent an hour getting them too!
Well fucking done, genius! WELL. FUCKING. DONE!
What the fuck is wrong with you, man! Have you no common sense?! No humanity?! No decency?! We need Macca to have enough supplies and equips to GID GUD! You wanna Solo-Run your game with no demons like a fucking Spess Mahreen on 2001:A Space Odyssey on acid, with NO FUCKING MACCA, be my guest!
I always wanted to say that shit. No offense, meant to you, of course. Just hate Macca Beam. Wastrel Beam on the other hand, I'd rather NOT get into... For my own sake and yours. I'm DDS Anon, by the way.
I am a Shadow. The TRUE Anon.
Shit, you're right even if you fucked up your quote. Proves that I don't read my posts and shit like localisation instead of localization happens.
Oh, why, yes of course. When was it supposed to get released again?
They sure as hell couldn't change their mind this time for sure.
But I am a Shadow, the True Self!
ELLY LOOKS SO KAWAII
>Oh, why, yes of course. When was it supposed to get released again?
>They sure as hell couldn't change their mind this time for sure.
You are missing a point now. People are angry because it was delayed for a really long time. Now it got delayed AGAIN right before it was supposed to be released. And as anon said before if I were to import it I'm increasing AMERICAN interest not EU that decreases chances of getting any SMT games in the future.
hair isnt the right colour at all but it looks good
I really wonder why P1P got such a shitty treatment for the remake.
No updated portraits, fucked up soundtrack, not even Japanese audio (Jap version has no voices, cutscenes are fully mute with subs instead).
