Not a Vita game but it's one of my childhood favourite: Brave Fencer Musashiden. I remember playing it on my PSOne when I was little. And it came with Final Fantasy VIII demo which I played through like 10 times.

I find the moon used is pretty basic so it's an easy read. A bit too basic in fact because a lot of the characters' names are written in hiragana in the menu. Kind of a pain to find which bitch I need to talk to at the castle unless I sound out each name.

As stated in past threads, I've attempted to try to get an 8/v/ specific Vita image going. Aside from a handful of games, it more or less went nowhere other than providing content to work around for templates, due to little contribution from other anons in these threads (perhaps in part to requiring more information than just game names, in that I need a description of what makes the game worthwhile; with the Vita being as niche as it is, I think having good descriptions would add something in the way of usefulness to anons), which had admittedly gotten very slow at that point. I still have the original files I was using from back then as covers and templates (it's been nearly a year since then), and know a bit about layout, so if people are serious about helping, I'm willing to resume working on it.

Though, if >>13884165 wants to keep trying his hand at it, I'll at least provide design advice if wanted.

>>13882965

I still find it odd that Square has refused to put Brave Fencer Musashi on the western PSN, while Japan has it on theirs. Though, Japan also has SaGa Frontier 1 and 2 on theirs while the west lacks them, so maybe Square thinks those three didn't prove popular enough here to warrant the effort for western fans.

>>13884258

After a certain point with that format you have a monolith and very few people are going to be interested in looking through that.

You could probably cut down the template to remove developer or publisher, just have a section that lists them together in cases where it might be relevant Such as NISA published titles The region information could have one box and list the regions it is available instead of having a box for each region and I'm assuming graying them out to denote unavailability. I'm not sure what the FX section is, is it languages? If so you should probably keep that or the audio section under the game title otherwise its redundant. .

>maybe Square thinks those three didn't prove popular enough here to warrant the effort for western fans.

Could be Square being Square or legitimate licensing issues. If a game didn't do well enough for its first release they may not think even the die hard fan sales will make up for the effort. Even if said games are probably more popular now due to people learning about them after the fact

that's pretty intense for just a simple "recommended games" chart. The publishers and audio part especially seems like overkill. It feels like a legend could solve that much simpler anyways rather than having to type that out every time, and it lowers the amount of words as well. A chart should make people research shit on their own and give them an idea of what to play, not tell them what to play blindly. I will say that those designs look nice, as if they came out of a strongly maintained wiki or something but if it takes that much work then the chart would have to be exceptionally small in number to not overload the reader, something like 30-35 games max.

Some people understandably want to know better who the developer or publisher is for a game. Developer being that a fair amount of games that aren't published by the developers themselves don't have so much as their logo on the front. And with publishers it's easier to know if a game stands to have been fucked with (though if a publisher hires a third party team, like 8-4, they tend to not be listed anywhere but the game's own credits anyhow). For the region information, I wanted to make it more clear if a game had a physical or digital release in a given area, and in particular with the Asia releases, some of those physicals are import friendly due to having English scripts. "FX" was meant as "EX" for "Exclusive" (I suspect that it doesn't make itself too evident though if you're seeing it as "FX"), though I suppose the tag on the cover of, say, Muramasa there denotes it anyhow, even if not all that legible at that scaling (but some games that were once exclusive have been ported or "remastered" elsewhere since release; similar issue with the Gamecube having exclusive tags on their covers).

The idea was to provide more information than just the bog-standard title, cover, and genre (the way the DS and PSP ones in the past have, if you've seen those), but I honestly haven't looked the template or samples over for a while, and the Vita being niche as it is, having more information there without having to manually look games up might help people get into it, or at least find something of interest they've passed over before. But there's a valid point to be had on how much information is there already. I'll consider revamping the layout if people want it, and reconsider what information is actually of value. And you're right that for a graphic, ability to keep the viewer's focus for as long as is warranted is crucial, rather than them dropping it partway through.

How many games did you have completed for the chart anon? Can you upload what you have with your next post?

Knowing the publisher is useful but I have to wonder if its worth including in a chart as they could just look on any wiki or on a google search to find out more information about a game, but that's a more subjective criteria.

It might be worth having an icon or a note to /scurv/ certain games (like NISA-published or developed ones or what have you) rather than listing the publisher for every single one, but again that's just an idea.

Let's figure out what sort of chart we want though first of all. Detailed charts are nice adn all but if it creates a fuckload of work for the chartmaker and never ends up being finished, and puts a lot of burden on the regular anon then… eh.

I feel that in terms of a chart it should be easy to add games, and harder to remove them (its easier to shit on a game than it is to recommend it) and you could take the more well-known titles with grains of salt for their recommendation because more is generally going to be known about it, maybe asking the anon who suggested it why it deserves to be in the chart.

What you're suggesting for a chart is a huge resource and almost feels more like a portable wiki of some sort which is pretty huge in scope. It might just be too big to take on.

I have had tabs with descriptions prepared for the following games (based on what other anons had contributed towards wanting to see added at that point in time):

>Ar Nosurge Plus: Ode to an Unborn Star

>Demon Gaze

>Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax

>Muramasa Rebirth

>Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

>Persona 4 Golden

>Soul Sacrifice Delta

>Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkuni

>Ys: Memories of Celceta

There are also a number of games that only got brief descriptions that I saved as well, but hadn't made anything for yet.

>Knowing the publisher is useful but I have to wonder if its worth including in a chart as they could just look on any wiki or on a google search to find out more information about a game, but that's a more subjective criteria.

The way I've learned things in regards to media, both image and web based, the less extra effort (such as clicks) someone has to go through to get what they want, the better on the user end. But there is something to be said for information overload too.

>Let's figure out what sort of chart we want though first of all.

The additional information, beyond the game names, genre, and descriptions, were brought up as useful to anons at the time (which was about a year ago). Especially the physical/digital status of each game, whether it has a physical English version (most useful for imports of AS releases, like SSD), and audio options. It would be good to figure out what people here at present would consider useful though.

>if it creates a fuckload of work for the chartmaker and never ends up being finished

I don't mind maintaining something like this (not like I'm hurting for time right now), and layout is something I've enjoyed in the past. Main reason the Vita image never progressed much was mostly lack of active interest from other anons back then in providing content for me to work with. It admittedly does take more effort to write what makes a game good, why you'd recommend it, etc, than it does to dump a bunch of game names, covers, or just reheat copypasta (see >>13858371 ).

>I feel that in terms of a chart it should be easy to add games, and harder to remove them (its easier to shit on a game than it is to recommend it) and you could take the more well-known titles with grains of salt for their recommendation because more is generally going to be known about it, maybe asking the anon who suggested it why it deserves to be in the chart.

That's part of the benefit for requiring a description; getting people to take the additional time to provide one shows a dedication to the game in question, and other anons vouching for a game mentioned being worthwhile also helps. However, crowdsourcing of games to be added has it's own drawbacks, especially if there's not enough anons checking what games others are recommending (and I don't just mean checking dubs).

I will consider reworking things though as to how much information is actually useful (and if the icons are going to remain in the tabs, I was planning on including a legend in the image to prevent confusion when, or if, it grows into what I'd consider worthy of a base release, and beyond). Big thing is that I want formatting to remain cohesive throughout (IE: get the template finalized early on, so you don't have to redo a lot of things later). Though, if having so much text on an image is too much from a viewer perspective, there are some other potential avenues to explore beyond and image. For example, /jrpgg/ on halfchan years back ran a google doc as supplement to their "worthwhile JRPGs" image, hosting further information of games there, for both games that were on the image and those not (for some reason they limited the image to forty five games). A properly managed pastebin hosting the additional information might also be workable, and assuming the link would remain the same despite the text being occasionally updated, could have the URL within the image itself.

Buy a physical copy if you have to, more of that goes to the devs. >>13923256 I don't believe it demands updates unless you're trying to activate and you can't activate on 3.60 anymore anyway. f1c302 No.13923278 >>13923266 > It takes around five minutes and account switchers work Ok but she always complains that vita doesn't allow account switching or something like that. >I don't believe it demands updates unless you're trying to activate and you can't activate on 3.60 anymore anyway. Activate? I don't know what that is. All I'm talking about is logging into an account which it does prompt you to update. She showed me the screen. Perhaps that was just the store, though? 80fa66 No.13923296 >>13923278 Unless the vita has FW at 3.60 your options for piracy are going to be extremely limited. 3.63/.65 I think have ARK/VHBL. 3.67 is entirely locked out from what I know. >Ok but she always complains that vita doesn't allow account switching or something like that. The vita doesn't allow account switching by default but there is homebrew that will do it so if you can jailbreak it you can also use the account switcher. >Activate? I don't know what that is. When you activate the console it associates the console with the account's purchases. Without activation you can't play legitimately purchased PSN games/DLC/etc. This isn't a problem on 3.60 minus newer games because you can pirate them all+the DLC. 941574 No.13923300 >>13923278 Long story short, you need to crack the vita to use a homebrew account switcher. For that you need to use a firmware that is no longer allowed on PSN by sony.

So no playing online then? I've been reading through the OP pastebins but it's a bit overwhelming the amount of stuff listed. Where do I start, exactly? How long should it take and is there any easy ways to fuck it up? I'm fairly good with this kind of stuff most of the time but it's not my console so I don't want to have to fork out money for borking her shit. 1fe612 No.13923727 >>13923331 You can play online provided your system is already activated but some game updates will force a system update, such as Dragon's Crown, Terraria, Minecraft, etc. For the most part, it's either hacks or PSN. My advice on that front is to set up HENkaku, then back up her activation files to PC. vd0:registry/system.dreg vd0:registry/system.ireg tm0:npdrm/act.dat Then factory reset. You may want to create a dummy account for using content manager during the initial setup but that's all you'll need it for. From there mostly follow the paste top to bottom, and READ THIS FIRST. I'd also give consideration to an SD card adapter depending how many games you want to put on there. 80fa66 No.13924004 >>13923331 >Where do I start, exactly?

If Sony want to ban you for naughty stuff they can do it to the console, and whatever accounts are linked to including your main one. That's why I recommended factory resetting in the first place, and using a dummy only if you need content manager.

For a Compile Heart game, it's pretty darn impressive. I'll give it that. Storywise, it builds itself up with the premise and all but it leaves you hanging. There's some glaring plotholes which makes some events feel contrived, the characters are fine though. The gameplay's not bad either, I played on Normal. Grinding isn't as important as gear and making a decent skill build. There's a few puzzles and traps to add variety over the usual slog. I only had to look up a map guide once for one dungeon, getting lost is not fun. For half the game, every encounter felt tense since if you fuck up, it's probably game over. Then, you just steamroll everything…random enemies in the final levels are bigger threats to your party than the bosses themselves imo. There's epic tower-climbing bosses but only 2 of them in the game, one being half-assed. Lack of pre-jail backstory (apparently locked behind some novel), shoehorned ayys did it, mimicry plot device, etc. Soured the experience a bit for me. I really wanted to give this game an A+ but it gets a solid B from me. 80fa66 No.13944141 >>13944083 The novel being the one that was "unlocked" as the game progresses or the novel that was included in the Super Weeb edition?

Generally speaking across a variety of systems, not enough. Even with the PS3 in particular having had clear, uncolored plastic cases, where a reversible cover could have also functioned as inner art (ala PS1 tray cards), it didn't seem to happen too often, being that printing color front and back is an additional expenditure. And some companies that started getting exceedingly lazy eventually wound up just printing the safety warnings no one bothers to read or keep on the back of the covers (monochrome, obviously). I do know that the PS3 Trails of Cold Steel games have reversible art out here, and I would assume the Vita versions to be the same, though I can't say for certain. The Yomawari/Firefly Diary same-cart bundle has a reversible cover too, letting the purchaser choose which game's cover they want visible between both (as opposed to those often ugly compilation covers some games get, with covers-within-covers). Also, while not Vita related, IFI included the Japanese cover's Amano artwork as a reversible cover for Fairy Fencer F: ADF on the PS4, so there's that as well if that's your sort of game. On that note, that Nep cover there makes me wonder what they were thinking, given there's not even a spine labeling. Such a thing works better as inner artwork than a true reversible cover. Similar could be said of Gravity Rush on the PS4 (which has the added question of why only the right side is in color for it). Does remind me that Wild Arms 5 for the PS2 was also missing a spine label, and that one didn't even have a reversible cover (the LE box at least has a label, but come on). 1faa07 No.13970066 >>13969273 >On that note, that Nep cover there makes me wonder what they were thinking It's vaguely possible they were intending it for PS3 originally.

And then there's other baffling inlay designs beyond simply that: if memory serves, Gravity Rush for the PS4 has an inlay that is only in color on the right side, repeats the image on the left in greyscale, and has a greyscale unlabeled spine to boot. I mean, while there's the point that the transparent blue of the case is doing the color side of it no favors to begin with, why the inconsistency in color format? I'll take it over a lazy health warning as inlay "art", but considering how many companies seem to want to reduce the money involved in physical production, I'm surprised they'd bother with something that is going to clash with the nature of the casing. >>13971333 >Muramasa Rebirth Complete on sale. >Genroku Legends pack not on sale (and neither are the stand-alone DLC versions).

You'll only feel that way until you see the whiny bitches that are credited on 99% of work, even in cases where they did nothing other than the system jailbreak. Somehow that gives them credit on any vita project in existence.

It has also somehow imported a giant 3DS drama queen that likes to "quit the scene" every three days and gets worshiped for releasing broken PoC garbage before abandoning it that the 3DS has had for years because very few people care about the vita since Sony officially "abandoned" it.

Yes, I know

>Sony's games never made up a majority of the vita sales

>3rd party support is continuing etc.

the issue is since Sony abandoned it so early it wasn't being bought in places that would make Sony think it was valuable enough to release a new handheld The West and it didn't pick up a ton of new devs outside of the "indie" scene The devs still releasing on vita tend to be releasing on other platforms as well so it is effectively on life support.

To play devil's advocate (not for you though Satan) developing jailbreaks is what allows all other homebrew to work, and Vita's a tough system, serious credit is due to those who figure out exploits for it.

Yes, and the people who developed the JBs for 3DS are properly credited for their work but you don't see them getting thanks on EVERY release on the 3DS either.

The people who developed the JB for the vita are already felated enough in any "community" that deals with vita homebrew/piracy that they don't need credit every time somebody releases homebrew for the system, and they don't deserve credit on releases where they did absolutely nothing.

I don't care if somebody wants to thank the JBers on their own project pages, that's their own shit, but then you have retarded faggots on reddit or wololo Who hire literal redditors to essentially repost reddit, even when the original source is THEIR OWN TALK FORUMS that have to add

Yes and I think the vita has good games that should be legitimately purchased in most cases barring NISA fuckery, full price digital only jewery, etc The problem is it seems like a lot of people are only buying a vita now to pirate the "free" games and had no interest in it until they could pirate which I think is also why interest from people, outside of a couple of developers releasing halfbroken utlities or the DOOM port every console gets, has essentially vanished because

<Well, we can't play new games so fuck this system

>Storage redirection and pirating is just to bypass some of Sony's bullshit.

This would be a valid point if people were using JBing as a way to get around Sony's bullshit to play titles they've purchased but the majority aren't. They're literally just getting the biggest SD cards they can to pirate the most games possible. I doubt most of them even play the games they pirate, they just do it because they think it makes them look cool to their faggoty friends.

>Adrenaline is a really nice benefit for portable PSP and PS1 but you can get those on PSP too. Emulators and other bits of homebrew are mostly icing for the cake.

Adrenaline is great because PSP/PS1 games are available portably Other than the handheld laptops known as GXP on something other than just buying a PSP and using isos/csos when PSP hardware is going up in price because it's growing scarce. The multitude of emulators being released are of marginal benefit to most people because the systems with working emulators, other than the PS1/PSP, have been done before and, in most cases, are far more mature as software on alternative platforms. Nobody was buying a vita because it emulated the GBA or the NES, that can be done on most phones now. They were buying vitas because they wanted to pirate vita games. This is also part of why Sony to abandon the PSP in the West the first time. Then those same faggots who can't be bothered to buy games wonder why no games come West.

>>13992157

The reason I've slowed on pirating right here, and haven't really tried using cracks since the NDS. It's great to have the backup of hundred of games, but it's a worthless venture if you're not going to actually play. I staved that off by making myself playtest titles and hunting for the ones I really liked, which were quite a few DS titles.

This is also why it's so damned frustrating that devs and pub houses ignore obvious good opportunities like demos. They'd retain more customers by just setting up a damn demo. It's the exact reason I even paid attention to Dungeon Travelers at all. Time well-fucking-spent.

I've been a hopelessly good goy and it doesn't pay when they decide it's a great idea to block PSN downloads, well after the fact and after most games were already dumped.

>if people were using JBing as a way to get around Sony's bullshit

Nobody wants the proprietary SD cards, or PSN region lockout. But no I agree there's a lot of pure pirates, just like on 3DS, if anything they have it even worse for "pirates that don't play anything".

>The multitude of emulators being released are of marginal benefit

Vita and 3DS are the only systems I take for portable emulation, phones are terrible. Generally I prefer Vita for being nicer to play on. But no, as I already said, it is not a platform I'd get for emulation alone. I mostly play proper Vita games on-the-go.

>Then those same faggots who can't be bothered to buy games wonder why no games come West.

The only people to blame for Vita's failure are Sony, for bad design decisions, management, and not mustering a good variety of game development to happen. Pirating didn't even come into it until mid 2016, at least 4 years into its lifespan.

>>13993006

>Nobody wants the proprietary SD cards, or PSN region lockout

I would go as far as saying the memory card prices are part of why the vita failed to get a mainstream market in the US. With how cheap regular SD cards are and how equally encryptable they are it was entirely a cashgrab by Sony to use "proprietary" memory which was essentially SD cards with the pins swapped.

>Vita and 3DS are the only systems I take for portable emulation, phones are terrible.

Rather than current gen I was talking about how emulator ready a PSP can be and, at one point, they are extremely cheap. Similar with the DS and how easy it was to run GB/C/A with it's native hardware and a flashcart. All of the vita's emulators, save maybe the Amiga/DOS emulators, have been done better on portable hardware that was far more widespread, namely the 3DS at this point in time. Before that it was the PSP. The vita in general is a nicer piece of hardware because it wasn't built to be replaced with the next XL Super Climax FINAL edition that the DS and 3/2DS line went through. I think over the four or so years they've been made the only change they made between the 1000 and 2000 Other than getting rid of the 3G module nobody could use models was replacing the OLED screen with a less burnin-prone screen and giving access to the onboard memory for game saves/limited downloads.

>The only people to blame for Vita's failure are Sony, for bad design decisions, management, and not mustering a good variety of game development to happen.

Yes, Sony is largely to blame for the Vita's failure but that line was about the PSP. The PSP largely failed and was abandoned in the West by Sony midway through it's life because nobody wanted to bring games over on a console that was widely believed to have security practices as terrible as the 3DS without the customer loyalty.

> Pirating didn't even come into it until mid 2016, at least 4 years into its lifespan.

When Henkaku was originally released and people were releasing homebrew the only thing most people cared about was piracy. The Vita may not have had piracy until near the end of it's lifespan but most owners of vita hardware were not interested in vita games until they could pirate them. Their retardation was so great that several of them bricked their Vita with a vpk that did nothing but format the system partitions. The vpk was an 800kb file called

<harrypotter.vpk

Nobody stopped to think

<psv games are pretty big, maybe this is fake

I don't think piracy caused the vita to fail but I do think a lot of people didn't buy a Vita because it wasn't as easy to pirate on. The PSP sold hardware units because it was decent hardware, it did not sell as many software units as expected with the install base because a significant enough portion didn't feel obligated to buy their games to play them. I think if Sony tried to create a handheld that had the sort of freedom the PSP had but also locked down on piracy better before somebody says "just buy a PC durrr" portability the Vita would have been far more successful in the West than it was.

Many people bought a vita to wait for what they assumed was the inevitable busting open of the OS as evidenced by the massive console sales. When that didn't happen they just didn't use the system as evidenced by the number of people with the "dusting off my vita, what games can i pirate now?" when Henkaku was revealed to be a kernel hack". Then, when the console was jailbroken and they were free to add the sort of functionality they wanted from the PSP they did nothing with it but pirate.

When Sony found a way to block download access to the Store for a time for consoles not actually on the latest OFW people suddenly felt morally justified pirating shit they weren't going to buy anyway because

The people claiming the Switch is a handheld are faggots. Nobody outside of the Western retards consider it a handheld but it still seems like Nintendo is testing the waters to see if they can drop their real handheld line entirely. The fact that they're essentially ignoring what could be an instantly larger library with exclusives by not making it backwards compatible, at least with digital titles, is retarded.

As the world would have it I got my SD2vita in the mail a few minutes ago It inserts and ejects like a regular gamecart, it doesn't stick out while inserted. The microSD card just inserts in and out of the adapter, it isn't spring loaded. It is exactly what you would expect a nonshitty standard of memory to work.

>why I can do it with the PS3

They learned. The PS3 suffered some humiliating failures early on. Ones they were able to fix, but still. They probably took that failure to heart with Vita. And in all honesty I expect the Switch to be pretty solid too. They've had time to look into the stuff-ups that allowed A9LH and sighax to happen, and no more legacy compatiblity where games are allowed to execute on the friggin' security processor.

>demos are seen as more of a way to lose possible sales

Yup.

All storage redirection needs HENkaku. SD2Vitas work on any system. The PSVSD is for 3G models only, and USB storage is for PSTV only. That's all there is to it!

Gust/Koei tecmo have been shitting terrible ports on Vita since Yoru no nai Kuni 1 (Nights of Azure). Atelier Shallie Plus beforehand suffered framerate issues at japanese release but they at lest patched it.

Worth to note that even Blue Reflection on PS4 has obvious framerate issues during girls conversations sequences. So it's just the devs being incompetent in their job.

It looks terrible on Vita because they compressed the originally uncompressed textures to fit the 4GB limit. It wasnt much an issue for porting KT PS3 games because at least the devs bothered to compress the assets back then.

>Consoles have always been vastly weaker than PCs of their day

They were sold as subsidized near midrange hardware designed to last for an entire generation, by the end of their respective lifespans they were beyond low tier. They weren't giving people enthusiast hardware at a discount but they weren't having to do mid generation "hardware refreshes" like the PS4/Xbone or the twelve variants of the 3DS because their 3D implementation was worthless or the hardware was showing age too quickly.

>what matters is it's designed for games and a single platform to target. At least that's the theory.

Single platform with a single hardware configuration. In addition their OS and graphics APIs had far less overhead than PC equivalents at the time. Obviously this is slowly changing particularly with Vulkan allowing the PC platform to breakaway from the cancer that is DirectX.

The issue now is since most consoles are modified x86 and there is little real difference other than controllers most console manufacturers don't really have much to compete on other than what they can keep away from their competitors.

Digital only garbage is probably what will keep people on PS/XBox line relevant long after they're pointless because people have sunken a few hundred dollars or more into bits they don't actually own and will go into denial for a few years.

>>13997797

>4GB limit

4GB limit for just textures or total? I was under the impression there were physical game cards that allowed up to 8GB but most games tried to avoid the 8GB cards because they were expensive/trying to save digital only lads from killing their memory card space.

>at least the devs bothered to compress the assets back then

weren't people flipping shit because CoD infinite warfare recommended 150GB of free space for installation and they claimed it was the HQ textures/sound effects and included possible day 1 fixes because they wouldn't know if any patches would be needed, they didn't actually do any QA and fuck shipping products that work without patches

4GB is the max limit for the vita game cartridges. I dont recall any vita game having more than 3.6GB as base space, and patches/updates rather use the memory card instead. Blue Reflection on PS4 is 20GB in size because of the uncompressed assets, so that's why the Vita port looked like ass in comparison.

Coincidentally, this whole issue of optimizing/porting really started to get obvious at the same time Gust lost their formula for their games, especially the Atelier ones.
