Once that's done, you can then select which of your party members you want to become an apprentice to that master. The point of the Fairy World is to get certain items that are only available from the Fairy World. A story is only as good as the cast itself. However I would like to point out that besides the usual dragon transform abilities, Ryu can cast dragon summon magic attack too which are outside of his usual dragon transformation. Sadly for Windows 7 the oldest driver is not good enough.
A couple of key things here. Again there are many little extras throughout the game but the Fishing game and the Fairy World is the main focal point here. It also gives you access to Rei and Teepo shop. It really is a good rpg but yet at the sametime, I'm also disappointed in it. On one hand, you get the story of Ryu and his group on a quest to search for Nina's sister as well as learn more about Ryu past and his relations to the dragons.
To be honest the graphics doesn't really blow you away. The reasons for the disappointment is that everything is pretty much the same as the last one. Well it's this reviewer's opinion anyways. In fact that's the only time in the story where's there's an emotional moment. Ryu also mysteriously have the power of a dragon. The game uses a random encounter rate with a three party turn base battle system.
Now Ryu once again will have his transformation dragon attack where he will transform into a dragon. You have a main hero in Ryu who doesn't speak at all. These mini games are to help you not get too bored of the same old regular gameplay stuff. Still I quite enjoy the music in this game. It's not a good sign if you don't care about the characters in a game.
I've been messing with the huge number of options, while reading the manual, but still. A combo can be combine with a magic to special skills attack to a dragon attack. What I like about the music the most is that there's an asian or oriental feel to it. Extras and replay value is pretty strong in this game. I wonder if the resolution and color data are quite there. A combo attack is when one person does a successful attack and the next person follow it up with another successful attack.
Another type of combos is elemental magic combos to form a stronger magic attack. There are of course different combination of elemental magic attack but you'll have to figure them out yourself. Hell, I personnally find the bad guy more interesting and want to help him more than fighting him. Fou-Lou then begins his journey back to his empire to reclaim the empire that he built many years ago. As your Fairy World start to grow, you can then assign your fairies to numerous different jobs including opening up a weapon shop, a mini game shop, going out into the world to search for items, ect. What are these combos really for?? Basically what you have is a 3-D rendered polygon background with handdrawn sprites for characters. The colors in this game isn't good too.
This is where the disappointment lies. The story starts off with a couple of characters, Nina and her friend Cray, travelling across the desert in search of Nina's sister, Elena, whom had disappeared many days ago. Bottomline is that you can only fight with 3 at a time but have the resources of all 6 party members at your disposal. Inorder for the masters to begin teaching you, you must first meet certain requirements. Just like Part 3, Part 4 uses the Masters and skills system.
I experimented the flags you mentioned but nothing worked. I guess an 8 or 7 would be inorder. If you want to experiment these flags in the meanwhile. Now you can also learn skills from your enemies. Maybe some other user can confirm or correct what I'm saying.
What this means is that you have 3 starters with 3 bench warmers. During battles, only the starters can fight and get hit but during the battles if one of your starters is low on magic points or health points, you can immediately replace your starter with a bench warmer. What this also means is that your back up members will also gain experience points. In fact the 3-Dness of the graphics tend to bother you quite a bit during the gameplay. The game goes to a white screen right from the start, sound is ok but not the video. What am I doing wrong? I thought of a buggy log string, but when I reached the offending code the one that commented out don't cause the problem. In the meantime, a long dead emperor god has been resurrected.
During their trek through the desert, Nina discovered Ryu, a mysterious person who has no memory of his past. Ursula is a tag along. They also kept in all the japanese original musical scores such as the last end game musical song. I tested several configurations, but apparently the game doesn't like having ddraw hooked. Like with the last Breath of Fire game, this game uses a fishing game where you can catch numerous different fishes and turn them into points. All he's done since his resurrection is to try and protect himself from a bunch of evil people that are trying to capture him to steal his god like power. Unfortunately now I'm tied to the first pc, so I can't verify the theory.
