In your best opinions, what are the best emulators for ripping maps?

For examples:

NES
SNES
Game Boy Color/Advance
Sega Genesis
Arcade

Hi, everybody.

It's me, LTIan.

Since I couldn't get the darn Password Recovery to work for AOL e-mails, I had to make a new account.

LT stands for Looney Tuner. And this is my full username: LooneyTunerIan.

I hope there are Mappers out there who would be willing to take some requests.

Segmented maps are fine, especially if they're segmented logically, such as how they appear in the game.

A full map would be neat.  In the cases where the water palettes are different, how would it look if you merged/mixed/averaged the colours?  You know, by transparencies or gradients?  While it wouldn't be 100% accurate pixel-wise, it might look really cool, and good enough (if not perhaps even better) for practical purposes.

Sad to hear about the family issues. As for the Lunar 2 map, either way is fine. One full map or segmented, as long as there is one. I don't really need it, but since the map is different from the PSX version, and there's already a PSX version online, I thought it would be nice to be able to see the SCD one too. Plus, it would be the first Sega CD map on the site.

I found this YouTube channel called "Abroad In Japan", which I've watched a few episodes of to learn some things about the sights and culture.  Here's a good video about what NOT to do there:


Today on reddit (which in the past few months I've used lots, whereas I rarely ever did before) I found this interesting thread: My Completely-Excessive Japan Travel Megamap, or more directly, here, a behemoth Japan map that redditor CorbeauNoir01483 made when planning a Japan trip and decided to share, because it now has way more information than one traveler probably needs.

On the gaming side of things, I heard Nintendo Tokyo (the Tokyo equivalent of Nintendo New York, formerly Nintendo World Store) is opening (or opened?) in Q3 2019, and Super Nintendo World is supposed to open at Universal Studios Tokyo next spring or at least before the Olympics.

I guess we're straying off topic, but I look forward to anything you share about your trip!

Now's probably a good time to mention that I've had a Lunar 2 map/guide project going on for about a year and a half.

Unfortunately, as life typically goes, it's fallen into a slump at the last 5%, with no immediate end in sight. Deaths in the family, cross-state moves, new careers - all the stuff that typically comes up when you only need a few weeks uninterrupted to finish.

What I can say, though, is that the Lunar 2 world map is actually 6 different maps stitched together to flow relatively seamlessly (7 if you want to include the revised segment of 3 used for Zophar's Domain).

Even if you stack them into a single image, their dimensions won't form a perfect square. Of course, since it would ultimately assimilate into one big island, you could fill the empty spaces with water.

The problem however, is that the water palette changes significantly in segments 4 and 5 (the iceberg and Neo-Vane segments), so there would be blatant stitch lines wherever you decide to average their overlap, or there would be an awkward mismatch between ocean and ponds in segment 3 if you decide to use segment 4's full body of water (and that's only the primary playable area).

There's also a lot of alternate palette options at other key points where the world maps overlap, such as the Illusion Woods, and other locational or specialized graphics getting glitchy in different ways at places where the designers obviously didn't expect players to be clipping through to, due to the way they tried to fake having more colors in a map than the system actually supported.

All that to say, I don't think I'll be submitting a single Lunar 2 full-world map along with the main 6 when I finally finish, but you could certainly pile them together for yourself and decide how you prefer to do your own stitching and filler.

My co-worker's been twice recently and he says it's easy to get around in Tokyo without needing to know English.

I think you mean " without needing to know Japanese"? Wink

My friends and I have been planning this trip since the beginning of this year, so I'm certainly looking forward to visiting and exploring that beautiful country. It's always been a dream of mine to go there ever since I became fixated on the Japanese language (through video games and manga), so I'm really excited to finally see that dream come true!

I've got a notebook of all the books and other stuff I'd like to get while I'm there, the bulk of it being books related to video games that are out-of-print for the most part. Although I have some things I'm set on finding, I'll probably find a lot of things I never knew existed and just can't resist, haha! Cheesy But we'll see how it goes.

And of course, I'll be sure to write up a trip report or something to that effect afterwards.

Zerker has submitted maps for Pagan: Ultima VIII (PC)!

It's definitely a different game than the previous Ultimas.  Some people dislike it but I actually enjoyed it at the time.

I'm considering going to Japan next year!  My co-worker's been twice recently and he says it's easy to get around in Tokyo without needing to know English.  (EDIT: I meant "...needing to know Japanese, as most people in Tokyo know enough English.")  Let me know how your trip goes!
