@panicswitch: Thanks for getting this fixed! It all looks good to me.

This has made me notice there is a slight discrepancy between the player and the download options (at least on older videos - using MGS Pt 1 as an example) - the HTML5 player quality options of HD/High/Low map to HD/Medium/Mobile on the downloads list. Not a huge deal, but it looks a little odd.

@panicswitch: I'm still only seeing up to Medium on the site (tested on Thirteen Deadly Sims Ep 8/9), and only the low_url is filled in on the API (Sims Ep 9, Xbox One Launch part 1).

It could be a caching issue I suppose, so I'll try again later, but I've cleared my local cache and hadn't previously attempted to access Sims Ep 8.

Thanks for taking a look at this.

@rorie: Looks like the API is only returning the low_URL for some reason. Example from 13 Deadly Sims:

<low_url>
<![CDATA[
https://[full URL removed].mp4

</low_url>
<high_url/>
<hd_url/>

Video plays back fine (even on progressive), but attempting to download gives "Based on your subscription level, this content is unavailable" (at any available quality).

I've tried in multiple browsers, and I can download other premium content fine, so I don't _think_ the issue's on my end.

Vinny's announcement hit me like a punch in the chest, and then Alex and Brad followed up. Man.

Best of luck y'all, thanks for all the good times.

seeing alternate scenes on YouTube doesn't have the same impact as experiencing them in your own playthrough.

I mean, you could always just play it again :p I tend to just find myself picking a different way through on subsequent playthroughs, and I don't worry too much about missed scenes after that - if they didn't come up in my playthrough(s), they're (probably) not that important (to me, anyway).

Which one is this? I think I've seen most of the scenes related to Valentine's Day, but the one you mention isn't coming to mind.

@mortimer: There's not really a lot you need to read; the game is pretty good at telling you what you need to know (like popularity leading to intimacy, for instance), so you can just jump straight in without worrying about it too much. Ultimately, unless you're trying to do everything, you can probably find to do the things you want to do without planning it out in advance. I can offer these tips regardless, but none are make or break:

Each of the dungeons can be completely in a single in-game day. That should be your goal if you want to maximise the time available for other activities. Probably won't be doable when you first come to the game - you eventually get a feel for when it's best to use SP to kill quickly or to take the damage and heal later, or when to use physical attacks/weapons vs SP, or what sort of questionable situations you can get yourself in without it being a party wipe, but you can only get there through experience - though you should at least be thinking about SP and how (and when) to avoid using it. It'll pay off over time.

As a counter-point to that, don't leave dungeons till the last day - they're sometimes longer than you think, and you can trap yourself in some bad situations (not having enough time/SP to get it done). The game does have a way out of getting you this though, even if you don't have a backup save, so it's not going to ruin a playthrough.

Don't constantly upgrade your weapons - a few points more damage doesn't make that much of a difference, and you'll drain your cash unnecessarily compared to upgrading when it'll be more of a jump.

If you find yourself with some free time, look for your party members hanging out near the gas station (from about mid-game onwards). You can "think about the future" to learn bonus skills.

If any of your maxed social links ask you to hang out in January, it's worth doing.

One of the social links keeps a weird schedule - you sometimes need to look for him at night as well as during the day, so he's easily missed.

If you want to see The Golden epilogue, you need to max the Marie social link. None of the other social links matter as far as endings are concerned, and if you keep the core message of Persona 4 (Reach Out To The Truth) in mind when making decisions, you'll probably reach the True End without needing a guide.

No Caption Provided

This is more of a challenge playthrough, but I figured I may as well mention it here anyway: one counter-intuitive strategy for Very Hard I like is to always stick with your starter Persona, and try and avoid a good number of the fights. It puts you in some rough situations, and for about the first quarter of the game you're generally one wrong move from dead - you have to make the call that it's often better to leave characters knocked out rather than letting the enemy get another turn, and you face at least one boss that casts what you are weak to - but there's a turning point. By about halfway through, by funneling all of my stat increases, skill cards, and EXP into a single Persona, I was so monstrously overpowered (even having deliberately avoiding grinding for the entire game) that I was literally running to the top of the dungeons because I was dealing about twice as much damage as anyone else in my party and could tank just about anything enemies could throw at me.

but rotating saves might be a thing to do so you can get the ending that you want.

Having watched the ER first, that always feels so wrong. "One save, dude" (I'm still doing this in P5R).

Though technically, it is a good idea :p

Dual audio is cool, but I just want someone to mod in original Chie.

I hope somebody comes up with a mod to put in the vanilla voices for Chie

Working on it - I've got a proof-of-concept up and running. It replaces the "AHA! Is this our chance?" line with the rather infamous old read (though the audio is a little too quiet to really match up at the minute).

Download: https://gofile.io/d/h5g8HN (MD5: F6BAD1653AE25564C3974ADE84F19367). You need XDeltaUI to install it.

Installation instructions:

  1. Copy [Steam folder]\steamapps\common\Day\SND\ROOT_E.xwb to somewhere safe
  2. Run XDeltaUI and pick Patch: AHA.xdelta, Source File: ROOT_E.xwb you copied above, Output File: anywhere convenient, but make sure it is called ROOT_E.xwb
  3. Replace [Steam folder]\steamapps\common\Day\SND\ROOT_E.xwb (make sure you have a backup!) with the one you saved from XDeltaUI.
  4. Enjoy! :)

Uninstallation instructions:

  1. Replace [Steam folder]\steamapps\common\Day\SND\ROOT_E.xwb with the backup you made in step one above.

Note: I can't make any guarantees that it will work or that it won't cause any issues. I've installed it and it seems to work, but I haven't done any extensive testing.

@szlifier: I've done worse (at least you _have_ a test environment :p). I've took the stack trace down - I don't think there was anything particularly sensitive in it, but figured there was no reason to leave it up now it's fixed.
