Well there isn't a clear answer to that. Tom and I, the founders of this thing, have not lost our passion for the Dragon Quest series or our passion for 'rom hacking'. Life has taken over. If you're a young whippersnapper and want to be involved in some way please let me know. I'm deep into career/entrepreneur endeavors that deal with bitcoin and node.js. I don't have much time to devote to rom hacking anymore but I wanted everyone to know that I haven't disappeared and I'm here to talk about any of our previous/future projects. However, I may not be as actively involved in them. I feel I have the experience now to take a leadership position when it comes to programming in general. Tom also has the talent (probably more-so than myself) to help anyone any that wants to hop on board. FREE CONSULTING FOR ROM HACKING! Private message me! Much love to the Dragon Quest and rom hacking community. RHDN is the central hub now thanks to nightcrawler. You can message me there or on byuu's forums. :)

This is a courtesy update to let everyone know school is kicking my butt. I'm not abandoning my hobby but just pushing it aside at this point in my life. I'm sure that when things get a little easier I'll go on some more rom hacking sprees. Hope all of the DQ Translations fans have a great holiday season. Don't drink too much eggnog! Drive safely!

Attention all DQ Translations fans. We now have a bugs section dedicated to solving issues with our translations.
FORUMS SHOULD NO LONGER BE USED FOR BUG REPORTS!
Here are the rules...
-Upload a screenshot if applicable
-Upload a savestate if applicable
-Report the MD5 of your ISO if it's a CD based translation or it will be ignored
-Submit a detailed report of how to trigger the bug
The project pages have also been converted to a more dynamic format and it should allow us to easily add projects as we take them on.
Thanks and have fun!

The team page has now been redone. Check it out.

Grab it from the projects page! I'll make a more in depth post about the release, but for now I'll put a few bullet points:
1. 1.1 and 1.0 is no longer supported.
2. Each patch archive lists the final MD5sum you should get after expanding and applying the ppf patch. Make sure these match before reporting issues. The MD5sum given after expanding is not the MDsum to verify against. Be sure to burn at 4x or 2x speeds using DVD-R media. Not doing so may cause skips.
3. Included a translated version of the original DQ5 PS2 manual.
4. Open PS2 Loader Project - v0.7 can play the game on a PS2 over your local network. PSS videos are laggy but actual gameplay is faster than DVD-R media. This method requires extensive setup.

The new patch has plenty of bug and script fixes. There won't be any need to apply hot fixes to avoid crashing, but be sure to properly apply the patch to a cleanly expanded ISO.
As of now we are no longer supporting version 1.1, so if you are having issues with this version please wait for v1.2. Thanks!
Just waiting on getting the manual done...

Current hot fix 1.1 rar version 004 - 3/02/10
If you are having crashing issues on a real PS2 please calculate/post the MD5sum of your ISO, the style (DW/DQ), and if you have debug mode turned on. Thanks!

First thing to do is to delete your version 1.0 ISO. The 1.1 patch can not be applied to the 1.0 ISO. You must use the expander to make another clean iso then apply the patch.
There is a small issue with character titles that slipped through the cracks. The following fixes character titles. Not a critical issue but here is the hotfix.

The patch will contain all the main script changes we have made since release and of course all of the hot fixes and more. It also will include a Borongo/ect fix that works 100% (Found out the initial fix only kinda works) and more plural support.
When version 1.1 is released 1.0 will no longer be supported. There will be more hot fixes to come but they will be more and more minor.
