Shi Kong Xing Shou - Galactic Beasts/Space Time Star Beast
« on: August 14, 2011, 09:32:07 AM »
Finally. Introducing this game in PGC Forum! (Also, this is my first post.)

(Note : this one is quoted from Sir Brydo's forum( http://s1.zetaboards.com/The_RX_Community/index/ ), which I posted there before.)
Introduced by Qiezei and dumped by Sir Taizou, This Pokemon-esque, unlicensed Taiwanese Gameboy RPG rocks. You can download this game's rom at Sir Taizou's Hompage : http://fuji.drillspirits.net/?post=86

What make me good :
 - Nice music, as always Vast Fame did.
 - Character graphics were not bad. And their characteristic is clear.
 - Average Story and nice events.
Spoiler: click to toggle

 - Easy. You can buy powerful items later on.
What make me awful :
 - Plagiarized sprites, of course! Noy only Pokemon, but also Telefang, Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children, and Mega Man series. :angry2:
 - Bad type association(?). Dark wins Fight!
 - So many 'useless' tidles in dialogue.
 - Bugs. Sometimes Roar makes game crash and wipes save file as well. Do not use roar while in boss battles.

Koreans learn Chineses letters(aka Hanja in Korean, Kanji in Japan) as well, so I could translate some of game scripts and beast names.
As Sir Taizou said, its title is directly tranlated as 'Space-Time Star Beast'. But I retranslated title as : "Galactic Beasts."

Firstly the protagonist crew :
(Note : They can't be spoliers since they're introduced in intro.)
 - 1st(Protagonist) : Ballot
 - 2th(Robot boy) : Buck
 - 3rd(Green-dressed lady) : Nina
 - 4th(Brown-clothed man): Claude
 - 5th(Blue-dressed girld) : Helen(Originally her name means 'Great Sea'. But since names are based on pronounciation, so I have to find similiar-pronounced.)
 - 6th(Flute Player) : Lante
 - 7th(Scientist) : Newton(Originally his name is translated as 'Rand' or else, but I don't think this is appreciable.)
 - Last(Painter) : Mitt

And their partner Beasts :
(Note : Same as above.)
 - 1st : Bladeberus(Direct : Blue-Souled Dog)
 Despite its appearance, it uses sword-based attacks a lot.
 - 2nd : Beattro(Direct : Mechnical Bird)
 Why its name is beattro? Since its sprite is from Mega Man's support robot, Beat.
 - 3rd : Electreep(Direct : Little Lamb)
 - 4rd : Chromanix(Direct : Volcanic Bird)
 - 5th : Merlith(Direct : Mer)
 Name's origin is 'mer' + 'lilith'.
 - 6th : Muserode(Direct : Musical Soul)
 - 7th : Signaliton(Direct : Time-Space Mech)
 - 8th : Drawvile(Direct : Paint Fairy)

P. S. It seems that you're good at Chinese, sir Taizou. Would you help correcting grammar errors of my translations?

Hey, welcome!  I'm sure your walkthrough will garner some interest over here.  :)  Are you still going to update over at the RX Community or is the main focus going to be here?

Would you help correcting grammar errors of my translations?[/quote]Actually I'm not - I just translate simple things with dictionaries and stuff but I don't know much about Chinese grammar at all. Anything substantial translated from Chinese on my site was probably done by Barver. :D

Anyway, welcome to the forums! glad to hear people are enjoying Shi Kong. I wish I knew Game Boy ASM then i could maybe translate the damn thing and fix the bugs.

Yeah true. Stuff like that makes you appreciate why the real Pokemon spent like 5 years in development.

Playthrough videos :
 * Sir Taizou(ROM) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIDkKDYVVs0
 * Qiezei(Undumped)
 - Part 1 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhHGAuXO19U
 - Part 2 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUG-tZw8-Ik
 * Sir Brydo(ROM) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcA3STavuFU

The glitches I found :
 * Using roar while in boss battles will make the game crash.
 * While using Beast depositing system, when you have 5 or more Beast in box, game will make terrible graphic glitch if Beasts are less than 5 - Like below. Game won't crash, but you have to wait for a while to play.

 * Sometimes game will crash suddenly, and the save file wipes out. This is the worst glitch.
 * Status-effecting move will show its active graphics even it's missed. like this.
Use status-effecting move -> Success -> The opponent will remove its status in no time.



EDIT : New things.
 * Beasts' types : Fight, Light, Shadow, Fire, Water, Wood, Earth
 * Blaziken's Beast sprite sheet(some of them are noncolored)
Spoiler: click to toggle



P. S. I wonder why This and Digimon Sapphire have no entry in Bootleg Games Wiki. But I'm afraid of making a page because I'm not so good at English... due to inappropriate preps.

Oh, Please. I don't want to multipost.  :(


I'll post my walkthrough here after I finish posting walkthrough in RX community.
My progress is now almost end of Episode 7.

Sir Taizou // Wow, really?  :thumb:

I'm translating almost of them, so I'll help about their English names!
Any ideas for English names, everyone?

EDIT : Oh, some of bosses are not in 'pokedex'.

Just so you know Sink, anyone can only see your walkthrough on RX Community if they sign up and make ten posts. That's the only way you can view the Pirate Game Discussion section which it's in. Anyway, good that you've finally completed it after two months :)
