The DS emulator I am using has a built-in video codec, much like DOSbox. This has potential. Oh yeah. Also a not so subtle hint at what I am planning on writing about next.

I'm using the basic version of the translation patch, which is only names and interface. Apparently the full patch is more than half done, though with any project made by people who theoretically have real lives, the release date is unknowable. I was just impatient for a fix after seeing some of the stuff in regards to the recently released 3DS installment, which according to crazy people who can speak Japanese, is pretty awesome.

Also, Sacred Stones is mad easy son. Even without the whole infinite grinding aspect (which is wayyyy easier to abuse than was probably intended) pretty much everyone has great stats, to the point where you could probably solo half the game with just Seth on Normal. Of course, I say this as someone who has played some of the harder games in the series, namely Thracia 776. Even with the added benefit of savestates, the game was clearly designed by sadists.

@SlightConfuse: Yeah, that's pretty much the only hard mission in the game. The rest is just endless waves of weak, slow monsters. Because it's not like holy weapons and bishops do double damage to monsters or anything.
