Found https://oldweb.today today - it's a neat project where you can browse the web like it used to be (even using IE6, my most hated of browsers).

Naturally I went back in time to browse TSS: https://oldweb.today/?browser=ie6#20011201000000/http://acmefiles.com/tss/

Good times.

Great! Thank you very much! I also created a couple of images using Midjourney. I don't think an average human graphic artist could do any better.

So since I'm using it everywhere else in life, thought I'd spend a quick 10 minutes using AI on shining force related things.

Midjourney (5.2 at this post)
Examples: Character art, items, wooden floor tiles

I'm sure you could do a lot more, a lot better and match the older style if you wanted to, see:

of course you use it to help code I suppose, but I don't think it fits that purpose particularly well if you're trying to actually craft a finished product.  However it's great for all that random dialogue, and helping to spur you into driving the adventurer with local hooks.

"Making a game similar to Shining Force 2 on Sega Mega Drive.  Please write me 50 villager dialogue lines that could be put into the game.  Some will be a few words, some will be several sentences."

"The old wise woman in the village knows many secrets. Seek her counsel if you dare."
"We've been having trouble with a pack of wolves lately. They've been attacking our livestock."
"The baker just made a fresh batch of pies. They're selling like hotcakes!"
"The village elder is a skilled storyteller. You should listen to one of his tales."
"Welcome to our village! We may be small, but we have a big heart."
"Have you seen the bard? His songs can lift the spirits of even the most downtrodden."
"The innkeeper has the comfiest beds in the realm. A good night's rest is guaranteed."
"I heard rumors of a hidden treasure buried in the village graveyard. Care to investigate?"
"The children have been playing near the old well. It's been in our village for generations."
"Our village is known for its delicious honey. The bees here are quite extraordinary."
"The village blacksmith is always looking for apprentices. Interested in learning a trade?"

"The village healer has a remedy for every ailment. She's a true miracle worker."
"Did you hear about the lost dog? The whole village is on a search mission."
"I've seen a peculiar glowing object in the forest. It might be worth investigating."
"The mayor's daughter is missing. We fear she may have been kidnapped by brigands."
"I once found a rare gemstone near the river. It was the luckiest day of my life."
"There's a rumor that an enchanted sword is hidden in the ancient temple. Are you brave enough to find it?"
"The village is known for its vibrant festivals. The next one is just around the corner."
"The bridge to the neighboring village has collapsed. We're cut off from the outside world for now."
"The local farmers have been struggling with a blight. We need divine intervention."
"The forest is home to a mystical hermit. They say he can see into the future."
"The village well is said to have magical properties. It has healed many ailments over the years."
"The village's best archer can hit a bullseye from a mile away. It's quite impressive."
"I once ventured into the haunted mansion on the hill. It was a terrifying experience."
"The village is preparing for a grand celebration. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the festivities."
"The ancient stone circle in the forest is said to grant wishes. But be careful what you wish for."
"The village's historian has a wealth of knowledge about our ancestors. You should pay him a visit."

Thanks a lot Ty! I'm so happy that you're expressing an interest in this game and even helping me to create interest in it, despite it being in very early development, this is very good motivation for me!

Thanks once again!

These are some great updates! Tiled is a really good map editor and I use it for my projects - I like that I can export data from Tiled in JSON and then convert this data to whatever format I need.

It's been a while since I last tried PhaserJS but I remember it being really good for sprite-based games. Might be worth giving it a try.

Can't wait to see more updates!
