hey there people!
while i was plaing breed memorial, i thougt, why not try other morocuma games again? so i decided to take tiastory 1, 2, and new tiastory and begin them.
after i spent some frustrating  20 minutes trying to lower the music in tia story 1, i gave up and began playng new tia story i ended up pressing f6 to lower the overall volume since lowering the bgm didn't work again, and now i'm feeling a little unsure regarding stuff i maibe missed or need to do.
i'm in  mucuma city, that's how jgt says, it's the city before the desert. tia uses double swords and hsi skill level is at 15, brisia uses double handed axes with a skill level of 17 and fred uses a short sword, since i didn't found any suitable daggers yet, and her one sword level is at 9, and dagger level at 17.
i checked the status list and saw some atributes are lowering down and i really don't know why, since i don't know which item lowers what. i learned all the magical spells given to me so far, ice, wind stone and fire  plus cure, heal, refresh and protection, and i'm wondering what should i do next.
I think there are some side quests i've missed, i did the armi escorting one and i espaced from the chastle after the soldier in ruby city caught me... should i do anithing else before entering in the desert?
Oh and the final question is, should i start playing tia story 1 or continue with new tia story?
thanks everyone in advance!
Cheers!

aye, i call the heroes to do my business for me!

Honestly, I'd just go with new tia story, it takes all the best things from the first two games and improves upon them while adding new things. Not really sure about stats and things like that, it's been a very long time since I played through the game. But generally if you keep upgrading equipment as you go you should be fine. Hold onto your old stuff though, since that's where a lot of skills come from.

Skills are actually learned by leveling up. About stats, check out the item list found in the list folder, the folder after sound. It explains exactly wich stats are lowered or increesed, meaning what all the equipment does to your stats. The system information file, wich is in the list folder explains what all the stats are used for. About the BGM, download Coolsoft Vertual midi synth. It will allow you to lower the music in evry text game made in Text Game Maker, not just the ones by Morokuma. And yes, that includes Tia story 1 and 2. Tia Story 1 is easy, but as the description says, it's not exactly balanced witch means some of the enemies do too much damage, or their defense is too high and you have to overlevel just to beat the game. Tia Story 2 is more balanced, but the difficulty level is high. This means that the enemies do a lot of damage, you really have to pay attention to stats and weapons, and you'll have to do, a, lot, of, grinding. With weapons in New Tia Story, just use what you want. All of them have strengths and weaknesses. Tia is best equipped with one handed swords, Berigia or however you spell it (the second character in your party) is good with axes, hammers or two handed swords, and Fred is good with bows or daggers. The desert ware you'll go soon isn't actually too hard, check the notice board on the main street of, Mooga (that's how it's pronounced in Japanese) not sure about what the translation says since I know enough Japanese to just play these games by using the Japanese and only using Q Translate sometimes. Also,
Minor Spoilers on next line!
You can add a fourth party member. When you get to Prime, talk to person B and you'll get to choose between 4 different beasts. I've found 3 of them. Satan Knight, Moribu and Prison. Again, not sure about the exact spelling. In Japanese, in the order I listed them in, the pronunciations are sah tahn Knighto, Boar ee moo, Prezone. The build block or whatever it is is someware in the desert, but I don't know exactly ware it is. Satan Knight is in a cave to the west of the mountains between Swim and Nitamia, Moribu is in the back of the jungle and Prison is at the top of the Rubisu Tower (the tower ware you fought the boss that was level 15 and used water attacks.

I'm using General user GS 1.4 or something similar. Once you download it, you have to add it to the midi synth. To do that, or at least the way I did it was to run the program through the program files folder then add it from their.

Out of interest, does anybody know how new Tia story is in terms of unlockables and endings?  I know tia 2 had a bunch of them.
Working my way through NTS though and it's a blast.

Hi all,

I have a question about crafting. Playing with JGT and the translations are questionable most of the time. There is one recipe I can't understand.
I want to craft the rainbow ring and it says I need one of each nine rings. There are only eight elemental ones though. I've tried to craft everyone of them and then tried every other ring I can also craft as the ninth one. But I'm always missing some materials. To bad that it doesn't say whats missing, that would be a huge help.
Do you guys know what materials I need for that ring? Thanks in advance.

this is fairly unrelated to the rest of the topic but this thread is as good as any other and I didn't want to open a new topic for one question.

Depends a little in what part of the game you are. Early on it doesn't really matter much, you should just look for stuff with high values and you should be fine.
Just always equip a shield if your char has a hand free and fill up all three eq slots, otherwise pick the stuff you can afford and that has the highest stats you find.
Later on you might want to find stuff that protects against the more nasty status affects. Especially that one which kills you instantly and charm are pretty deadly. But protection against stun is also pretty helpful in the ocean cave.

To bad that you don't know the ingredients for the rainbow ring either smile
