Already on it. When you visit someone else's game world, you have access to their DQVC. I've been looking for an excuse to fool around with that stuff.

Default Setting the stage: A brief prologue



Yes? Hello? Is this thing on?



Hello! I'm right here, OK?



Pfft! Foolish mortals. Like, you know?



Hey, it's me! Not the bald dude, I think his name's Krillin or something. Nah, just kidding — he's my boss, Aquila, the coolest Celstrian of all time. I'm the cute one with the chocobo-shaped 'do.



That's my pronoun, boss man. Don't wear it out!



Yo, I got it all under control. This sleepy li'l hamlet will never need to worry about disturbances of the peace while I'm on the job. This place may put the po' in podunk, but they got me around to kick strife and evil's butts if they even think about sniffing around looking for trouble.

So yeah, my name's Selfie ('cause I'm gonna have my photo taken a lot), and I'm about to embark on a huge adventure. Train, train, take me away....

Looks like a camera pointed at the DS.

Is it too late for a lapsed (and even then, low count) member who has basically only used Talking Time for sending and receiving things in the post to get on this list?

It's only too late to add names once the cart reaches the end of the list!

And, yeah, "capture" is just an iPhone camera and best hopes that there's not too much glare.

It's an international endeavor! There are Americans in this thread willing to ship overseas! Unless your concern is the cost on your end?

Oh man, I just remembered I saw a tweet or something about this. So many hours on my cart. I guess I'll throw in as well! Should probably avoid int'l shipping for now, though.

If my old DS is still cooperating I can probably send over some fun maps too. YOu can share between a DSLite and 3DS, right? It's been a while since I've tried such shenanigans.

Yeah, if it plays a DS cartridge, it will work.

Wow, at 2 hours per person, the story could end up being finished before it even makes the rounds.

boatie, I added you tentatively until I hear otherwise.

I won't be participating in these rounds, because I do worry about my ability to be timely with the updates. But I'll be watching intently!

I just googled and couldn't really find anything. Is there something out there that emulates DQVC and the DLC quests? If it also does tagging, I'll have no choice but to seek this stuff out.

EDIT: I'd love to participate, but I'm going to be address-less for most of the fall. Doh!

DOUBLE EDIT: From some github pages I found, I'd have to get an Action Replay DS(i) to disable some sort of server verification, then modify my WFC settings to use their DNS server. That's... not too bad, I guess. No magic randomly generated tags, tho.

Might it be possible with a sufficiently capable network router to simply have it redirect traffic headed for the now defunct Nintendo service to the unofficial one through some sort of routing redirect? I think it'd avoid the need for messing with the DS or cartridge itself.

In short, yes, but the WFC server that was set up does not actually support DQVC. I don't think it's possible to ever get it going the way it was intended, barring some kind of gamespy info dump. DQVC had gone down at least once a year after the the first year following the game's release, so even if fans had been sniffing packets or whatever the entire time, we wouldn't have a complete record of that data.

I assume it will start when Parish get's back. He's been on trips for the last two weeks and I think there was just a family emergency he is dealing with right now.

Yeah. I've actually been traveling every other week for the past six months; I spent less than 10 days of September at home. And I'm helping out my sister and her husband following some terrible, unexpected deaths in his immediate family last week. I literally have not had time to get this rolling, but I haven't forgotten it — I've been taking the cart with me everywhere.

You can generally gauge the hellishness of my current existence by the frequency with which I post to gamespite.net. The longer it goes un-updated, the more fervently Satan's flames are licking at my shoes.

Sorry to hear about your issues, but it's reassuring at least to know that the cart didn't get lost in the mail or something straight off the bat.

I'll be watching this too. My copy was lost along with a good chunk of my DS library. I'd like to see how it turned out. BTW, I have the strategy guide if anyone needs alchemy pot info.
