[ FAQ ]

Q. I want to stream the game on a video site.

A. This is fine. However, I take no responsibility for any trouble that occurs in
the act of streaming.

Q. Sound effects sometimes don't play.

A. This seems to be a bug with certain computers.
Unfortunately, it's bug with the library, so I cannot fix it.
If it is fixed, I'll respond accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Q. I set my buttons weirdly, and now I can't move!

A. Delete the KeyConfig.sys file in the Save folder.
This will reset the button configurations the next time you start the game.

Q. There's a boss I can't beat.

A. The story bosses are made to be tough.
If you just proceed straight to the story events, you may find yourself stuck at
With each chapter, you should explore dungeons, look for and create equipment
useful against the boss, and gain levels.
Just a few extra levels can make things a fair bit easier.
You can also try bringing as many recovery items as your Cost can allow. Put
them in your Pocket so allies can use them, too.

Q. The game is running slow. The graphics are all jittery.

A. Try the following.
- Press the F5 key to lower the framerate.
- Close as many other programs as you can while playing.
- Reboot your computer.
Also, long play sessions may lead to the game chugging over time.
If this happens, please close the game and reopen it.

Q. I really want a way to pause in battles.

A. By the nature of the tool, there is no game-side pause functionality.
If you really need to pause, press the F10 key.
This will pause it until you do another action, such as changing windows.

Q. I want to play in full screen.

A. Press Alt+Enter, or open Config.exe and change to full-screen mode.
* Currently, there is a bug that causes a framerate drop if you use Alt+Enter.
Try to use Config.exe instead.

Q. The screen sometimes has black spots.

A. This is an issue with some graphics cards.
It's a bug within the library the tool uses, so it's impossible for me to fix.

Q. What's "system data"?

A. This is data that is shared across all save files, such as options.
It's saved in the System.sys file in the Save folder.
It also contains important game information, so you definitely should not delete

Q. Things look weird in Software Mode.

A. I'm sorry, but Software Mode is not fully supported.
Please play in 3D Mode if possible.

Q. I want more than 10 save slots.

A. If you save in the last slot, the limit will automatically increase, going to a
maximum of 99.
If you want to manually increase it, create a file in the Save folder named
"SaveDataXX.sav" (XX being a number 99 or less).
This will force the save menu to expand to XX+1 slots.

Q. The world map frequently takes a long time to load.

A. World map images are deleted from the cache when you save.
If you increase the Cache Depth setting, they will not be deleted, which will
stop the loading.
However, it consumes more memory, and it will take more time to load saves.

Q. I want to make fanwork.

A. Please consult the following.

1. If it's a doujin work, i.e. it's done as a hobby or you're just selling at
conventions, you can do as you like without asking, whether it's free or not.
If you're doing something where distribution of the work surpasses the doujin
scope, please contact me.

2. Indicate the source as much as you can.

Please include details such as the name of the game and the site URL. This is
not an obligation.

3. There are no limits on content.

Even if you add things that weren't in the original, or even if it's adult
content, I don't mind.

4. I take no responsibility for any troubles or damages that occur.
