How are you guys grabbing the images btw? By section? Because if we divied them up and you gave me a specific section to work through, I could go on a massive image saving spree during my breaks to help make your job less burdensome--unless you would prefer I stick to my Imperial SaGa archiving thing instead, while you guys do the Emperors SaGa stuff? xD (Just throwing it out there!)
Ohh, the usual right click and save? xD I've been trying to grab it by series (starting with the least and ending with the most!) Most of the images are in .jpg so I save it to .png and then upload it accordingly. Maybe just dump everything in and we can figure out a naming structure when we have it all. It'd be a great help if you could view image, save the available highest resolution and then upload it as .png.
PS: I haven't been paying too much attention to the image uploads here lately OTL;;; so if you could link me directly to an area on the Emperors SaGa DB that you know for sure hasn't been touched, that would be much appreciated. :)
Ahh, I'm not sure what has been touched since it's been a long time, so I'm just uploading everything from scratch and I'll take care of the duplicates after! Refer to here for stuff in progress, I'm currently working on SaGa Frontier: https://saga.fandom.com/wiki/Template:ES-Card-List
Hello there ah you arte new here it looks like good to meet you and welcome to the wiki! Wow you have been doing a lot here it makes me so happy to see more people here helping to improve the place. As this place needed it badly so glad to see a community building. Anyway that isn`t why I am here right now.
The reason I am posting to you is I am curious those new navigation bars for Romancing SaGa 2 at the bottom of some of the pages were you the one that made those? nd if so I have to say I am blown away at how good and well organized they came out! If it all possible and whenever you get the time to do so would it be okay if you remade the other navigation bars in a similar manner? There is one I had made awhile ago for monsters and enemies of the SaGa series but it isn`t quite up to par or perfect as I am to be honest not good at crafting those. And maybe later down the line one for magic may benefit this wiki aswell when there starts to be more spell pages added here and such.
Yes, I made those templates, that's good to hear you liked it! I'm planning to remake other navbars in the future so no worries about that. Trying to flesh out character pages atm and maybe the game pages as well.
Ah I see so you were the one who made them afterall nice! Ah and that is so good to hear that you have plans on remaking the navbars thank you so much what you have done to some of these pages has greatly improved them. Even the various characters for Romancing SaGa 2 look far better now that you have character images on the big ol box full of information on each ones stats such as the Light Infantry and such.
So I`ll leave navbars to you then cause I am so bad XD And thanks again so much for all the edits you`ve been doing.
Apologies for providing you with an unrelated Wikia post, but I feel that this is mandatory. I have access to a high fidelity Growlanser logo and I believe that it should replace the current one used. Here is the logo.
As you can see, it is really clear unlike the current one being used for the Wikia which is pixelated. Are you okay with updating the logo for the Growlanser wikia seeing as you're the bureaucrat? thank you.
Do you think it would be okay to add art of the weapons/armor to the respective pages that you've been working on for RS2? I got a bunch of RS2 Famicom Data cards in the mail a few days ago and they have nice images of the weapons. If yes, what size would you like the images? And should they be inserted into the table next to the appropriate weapon/armor?
Oh wow, yes that'd be fine! :D If possible, we can insert them into the tables as needed next to their appropriate weapons/armors. Size-wise, probably the largest you can make them? We can always resize the images with wiki, so large size will give us the most options to customize with.
I'd help with the cleaning up part too, but my job has me tied up until the end of the year. Dx There are so many pages with typos, it drives me nuts! lol And I still gotta scan in and add the rest of the RS2 manga images, and then go scan the RS manga--Oh, and actually watch Romancing SaGa: THE STAGE, so that I can start a page for it! XD
Are you planning to just focus on the RS2 stuff for now, I'd assume? I'm wondering if we should attempt RS3 afterward so that the pages look a bit nicer by the time Square Enix releases the official English translation. ;_;
Awesome! And same here with my job, I can only work on it at nights on weekdays and I'm too busy on weekends. =A=
Hopefully we can manage to standardize some pages so the format can be used for future pages to make things a little easier! Goodness, you've sure got a lot on your plate for sure oAo I could help somewhat with the manga images as I've found some online! If only it was translated though, we could expand more on the Seven Heroes page.
I'm focusing more on the RS2 stuff right now because that's what got me into this series xD But I've been looking at the Minstrel Song pages and I like what's going on w/ the character pages so maybe I can do something w/ that for the RS2 stuff as well. And actually, I was curious about RS3 too :O I wanted to start some pages for it but I'm not sure where to begin other than with the gorgeous artwork... TAT RS2 is easier for me because the resources are available lol.
Yes, I agree! Standardizing is a must! It drives me nuts seeing all these different formats, but I suck at editing with the wiki coding so I can't really help there. xD Did you make any of your tables into templates? They look a lot nicer than the generic ones that the wiki spews out.
Nice! Did you play the mobile version then? owo My first SaGa game was SaGa 2 aka Final Fantasy Legend II. I only recently started getting into the RS trilogy myself. Imperial SaGa and Kenji Ito's music were what helped me appreciate the games and characters beyond the first three releases! xD
Somebody on Twitter translated part of the Seven Heroes story from the manga actually--or at least the page that became a meme lmao. They did it to attract foreign fans if I'm remembering correctly. (I'm kinda tempted to make a Twitter account just to reply to them. XD). If I get bored, I could translate some random Seven Heroes stuff from the manga, like this one scene where Rocbouquet shows up out of nowhere to troll the Emperor during his stay in Atlanticus. I'd /so/ translate that part. xD (In other words, don't worry! The Seven Heroes will get some love. Tbh, they have the most interesting random facts/trivia/inter-group relations out of all the series' antagonists anyway! xD)
Finding artwork is actually pretty helpful if you want to go ahead with that! I was going to start correcting character and place names on the RS3 pages. There are quite a few fan-translation errors that don't match up at all with what the official JP books or Kawazu have written down in English. For example, Loanne should be Roanne, so if you see that on any of the RS3 pages, please change it! XD
Yeah, hopefully we can ease editing the wiki! I'm hoping to eventually turn them into templates, they may take a while to configure.
I'm actually playing it on PC :D I tried Romancing SaGa for PS2 a while back but could not get into it. Although now I'm pretty interested in playing eventually x) The music sounds gorgeous to me and the artwork is amaze!
Omg what is the meme? :O Maybe link the twitter somewhere on the page haha. That's good to hear! I'm really interested in their backstory and motivations, or like how they came to look how they appear!
Yes, looking for images is something I'm somewhat capable at so let me see what I can do! xD I'll try to inform you and let you know if I find anything!
Also I was wondering if you wanted to start a discord chat for Romancing SaGa series? :D
Nice! :O How are the controls on the PC version? I'd like to play RS:MS too, but I don't own a PS2 unfortunately. :( It looks cool though! Maybe one day...
If you search ワグナス!! you'll find the meme. XD It's usually just Noel making a specific face as he's running to Wagnas typically freaking out about something or making a stupid announcement. For example: I just saw one on Twitter of Noel running up to Wagnas all, "WAGNAS!! THE GUILE STAGE THEME! D:" and then the rest of the panels are basically just テッテレッテッテレー, crying sounds, and Street Fighter attack names. (No clue what the deal with that one was though. I'll have to show you some of my favorite ones some time. xD) Oooh and I've also seen artists use the Noel face as a censor on awkward fan art of Wagnas (and sometimes Rocbouquet). xD
Actually, I wanted to ask the same thing! Maybe we could make a server for the wiki where people can just chill out and SaGa? (It might also help us since discord's system makes it a bit easier for coordinating on projects? I personally hate having to go back and forth on the wiki pages whenever I have a question about the formatting. XD
It's really good! I don't mind using the keyboard for it altho it was confusing at first xD You do get the hang of it eventually!
LOL omg xD I need to check that out haha! That sounds hilarious!
Yeah, I figure it'd be easier to communicate on there too! I made the discord at this link: https://discord.gg/6FzqEc8 Feel free to join! But I must let you know I'll be busy entire weekend so drop some messages for me on there and I'll take a look when I get back ^^
That's good! About a week ago, I was lurking the comments on the Steam Community and I saw a lot of people whining about the controls! But then again, people were also whining about the mobile controls, which I didn't think were that bad. xD Are there a ton of typos in the PC version? I'm curious if Square Enix bothered fixing any of them. The mobile version is soooo bad when it comes to typos. Sword Barrier is "Sword Barrirer," and one of the characters is so-and-so "the 18rd" instead of "the 18th." There are more, but those are the ones that bothered me the most. xD;;;
Sweet! Naglfar and I both joined. lol! Sorry if we spammed it up too much! xD At the very least, I made sure to drop some memes off for you.
I have a folder of every RS2 enemy image screen capped and cropped but they're super small. Would you like to use them? If so let me know and I'll load them onto a file share drive that you can pull them off of.
