Title: Progress News ~ Tactics Ogre enters playtesting.

Yeah, that´s right! There are still two or three small things that need fixing, but things are pretty tight as it is. My testers are loaded with cheats and will hopefully run it pretty quickly. We´re hoping for a speedy test phase, followed by a release!

Osu!

Going straight on my must play list. Dunno why I never got far in TO for the PS1. Probably because when my first grunt died he accused my hero of neglectful strategy and cursed his name. Kind of heavy verbal wound.

Oh, wow!  This has come so far in recent weeks.  I'm so happy about this and very much looking forward to playing this as soon as it's available.

THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this!

Ironically, someone I know was asking around just the other day about finding this. Funny stuff.

just saw this
nice work, but why does the sample photo say "chapter 4" instead of "chapter 7"?
as far as i know, chapter 4 has yet to be made, unless there has been some secret release since the gaiden between chapters 5 and 6

The entire game is divided into 4 chapters. This game is episode 7 of the Ogre Battle series. So those are chapter titles.

What's more, Chapter 4 in game was mistitled in the Atlus translation. They called it "Hand In Hand" or somesuch, but the Japanese is "Te wo toriatte" which is the Japanese title for Queen's "Let Us Cling Together." Whoopsie! This is one thing we fixed in the new version.

We've had to change the format of the day calendar sprite text, unfortunately. While there *are* free slots for sprites in the game engine, there aren't *many* and I'd used a few more than I should have, which was causing things to crash once enough of the map had been uncovered, a location name was visible on-screen, and "FIGHT IT OUT!" was visible (all are sprites.)

Here's a sample of the new format:
