im@s Compendium - User filler suggestions and reports
« on: November 28, 2011, 10:19:52 am »
This is the reverse - if you've filled a request, what was good, bad and ugly about the setup? What, as someone who gets it from the reverse end, do you think needs to be done to make it easier?

If you do not fill requests, please post in the OTHER thread (Since it applies to you). This will be enforced, mostly for the sanity of the two of us reading over bug reports and the like.

Thank you.

Just one quick gripe on the output: Why is there an im@s1 style output for quintets? There is no such option in that game, and I nearly screwed up a request by reading a little too quickly.

It's a quirk with the game - in fact im@s1 format doesn't actually exist at all... except in certain circumstances.

Basically, for some stupid, stupid reason, during costume setup, you'd think they'd keep the format, (but don't, it applies the leader first format) and sometimes (although not all the time) they will reshuffle PV online mode at least on the 360  This is more apparent in  Trio format, but I've seen it happen in Quintet.

It's a royal headache (even for me) and we're also dealing with a legacy hangover from im@s L4U, where virtually all the request reels were made in that form. As you can guess, the fact that it caught on (at least in Japan) caused more than a few issues.

We'll eventually be coding in a help system (Crisu's working on it and I'm already pushing things down the line) and I'm hoping it'll be a nice halfway measure before we erase it entirely with the online system.

The help system also needs to address exactly where they'll end up, and that in itself causes more work to be done. Sadly, I really need time to actually play the game.
