All The Lunar- Physical photos + Summary Post

Postby viletribe » Mon May 21, 2018 6:21 pm

Well, she's here, lads.
All The Lunar.
I bought this from Amazon Japan (via ZenMarket) for $45 CAD. I waited a while to be able to ship it, and it showed up while I was waiting for a bus- So naturally I immediately dashed home when I got the text from my girlfriend that a Japanese package had shown up at our door (again, to her annoyance :p)
It's absolutely beautiful.

I popped it into my laptop after a good ten minutes of excited crying, and typed up what I experienced.

The game installer opens up with what seems to be a shop, belonging to none other than Ramus. Click on him- or anyone else around- to talk to them.

Ramus is our installer himself. Speaking to him will bring up a menu of icons, which you click to select and install.

After agreeing to terms and conditions, you’re met with an installer loading screen that features Alex and Luna walking across the screen in various game scenery. They take a lot of breaks, then Luna lets you know it’s finished when they leave the screen. It then informs you the installer is made with Macromedia and closes, with all the files installed on your computer. These files are in Japanese, so a JPN language pack on your computer is recommended.

The program is meant to run on Win95/98, so certain items won’t work on newer OS’s. There’s a lot of strange things involved including clocks, the gallery, a wallpaper changer(?) and what seems to be a Luna desktop pet.

All in all, it’s an interesting program- But I think I’d be able to enjoy it more if I could speak Japanese.

I may be posting all the files to a Google Drive so that others (maybe those who have JPN packs) can poke through it.

A Luna desktop pet?

I've had a tough time getting this to work on different later OSes (especially Windows XP and Win7 -- had to install a pre-Unicode language pack and trick it into thinking the entire system was Japanese). What OS are you using and did you have to do anything special to get it working? KF

Every time I see this referenced I"m fascinated by it simply because it seems like a true "product of it's time" but also something that had you given it to a LUNAR fan around Y2K they would have probably had a real blast. Does this mostly use the remakes assets? Like is there any new artwork included or anything of the sort that could be considered difficult to find? The cover just looks like the character scroll from the remake as one solid picture with the heroes (har) and heroines from each game prominent. And I'm guessing ultimately it just re-purposes assets for it's programs.

In pouring through the assets I didn't find any art that was actually new. Though if I recall, there are some new music assets/files there.

Also I didn't notice earlier: $45 CAD is a fantastic price for this. Because of its rarity, it used to go for anywhere from $90 to $150 USD. KF

I actually knew of someone paying $400 for it new back in the day. (This was around the time I got mine used, for $95.)

I don't fully understand what this is, but kudos for getting a copy of it in such a nice state and for such a nice price!
