Team Shining in the Darkness #2

Postby MXC » Wed Jan 18 2017 6:37pm

Signup Thread :) I'll give this a few days and then randomize the the sections we all get. Instead of doing what I normally do in team games (where we pick a battle or two), I'll let everyone pick one section they do not want to do. We'll be using Gens+ to emulate.

I'm in although I may take some time when it is my turn. But there can't be a team without me haha :D

What I don't want to do is the Treasure Hunting.

It might just be the two of us, which means I'll be stuck with treasure hunting :(

I really know why I didnĀ“t even tried starting a Team Final Conflict anymore because it is kinda depressing if you start a team game but don't find members that want to join :(

Maybe we wait until the weekend and if no one joins until then it will be

:music: Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us

I'm happy to join in - been after an opportunity to replay SITD, particularly for a project I'm working on.

There may be a delay in completing my level(s) depending on how busy I am at the time, but I should still be able to find time to complete it within a week or so, probably getting it done in one sitting.

I'd opt for either Cave of Truth or Level 3 as my skip - I find the difficulty ramps up on those levels, so I'm likely to grind more than necessary if I play them.

I'm happy to do the treasure hunting chapter - it can be a bit of a drag with backtracking, but won't feel so bad if I'm not doing Levels 4 and 5 around it.

Sweet! I'll let you treasure hunt then, since I don't care for it either. I'll see if Phill wants to join before posting the team :)

I'll be more than glad to do the Treasure Hunting Gentlemen, and I think Level 3 would be my skip. That Blackbone always pisses me off, and I'd more than likely powerlevel like it was my job if I got that one.

Updated the first post. Feel free to trade if you wish. Cull, you and I have the fewest but zex starts off (which is a bit short) and Phill gets Treasure Hunting, which is also fairly short. So I'm hoping we're fairly balanced :)

OK I will try to get to this as soon as I can :D

Off to a new adventure :D

Edit: I just had some time and already retrieved the Royal Tiara. After leveling to level 4 and buying a shield and some items I went in another get all the treasures and get some money for a better weapon in the end I was level 8 and had enoug money to buy a Sword, which I did and rebought healing items before going into the dungeon a last time rushing towards that giant Crab which didn't give any big problems thanks to the good equipment. After that I immediately left the dungeon with an Angel Wing so all the talking and gathering of our companions still needs to be done.

Nicely done. Phill's turn. If you guys could PM the player after you, I'd appreciate it :)

No sweat. I don't expect SitD to go very fast and besides, it's only 10 sections (as opposed to 30+ like most other games.)

Well gentlemen, after two days of trying to get Gens+ to work on my shitty ass laptop I've given up. Sorry for holding you guys up. It just crashes right when I boot the ROM.

Have you tried the old Gens? As long as zexxar didn't compress the save, it should work fine.

Nope. It isn't compatible with this piece of shit.

I'm never buying Not Mac ever again. (The rest of my computers are in New Mexico with my Wife and Kids.)

Ah, that's a shame. I'll leave your other battles in but for now, we'll pass this one off to Cull :)

I'm getting a new Mac in the near future so it won't be an issue later on.

Hopefully before the rest of us reach the end of the game? :shifty:

I'll see if I can get this section done one evening this week, failing that sometime over the weekend.
