tl;dr: I made a complete and accurate soundfont out of all the instruments in Explorers, download below.
There have been attempts at a PMD soundfont before, but they have been either incomplete or a total incomprehensible mess that is barely usable in practice (a year prior I actually went through it to rename every single instance of every single instrument but it wasn't much of an improvement). And both of them sound somewhat different from the game.
I wasn't statisfied with that so after installing Polyphone, asking psy_commando for a .wav rip of all the individual samples and months of of work I present to you the complete soundfont from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - Explorers of Sky, all properly named, sorted and compiled into a fully functional .sf2 soundfont!
Included are all instruments as well as SFX that were present in the BGM related game files, including files that exist but have been left unused. Gameplay SFX like attacking sounds are not included.
There's also a version with processed samples to mimic the way it sounds in the game! So this isn't only the first fully complete pmd soundfont it's also the only one that sounds closely accurate to the game!
There's also some custom presets I've made out of existing samples. Mostly tests at the moment. I plan to wait with that until the full release after every important thing has been taken care of.
This is the first time for me working on a soundfont project so most things may not follow best practices.
If you find any issue or have some tips or info please let me know!
this is the only mystery dungeon i haven’t played, after playing gates i really didn’t want to pick this game up but now i’m kinda looking into it.
Anyone have strong feelings about this game?
For me, it would be a good way to advertise the games in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series. Like what would happen in the movie, like in the beginning of the movie there would be a human going around his day like usual, but suddenly he gets transported to the Pokemon world, he meets up with his partner and rescues some Pokemon. The story would go great if it hits the big screen, should it be all animated or have some live action segments. Who would voice the Pokemon? Should it give cameos to Team Go-Getters from the animated special? Tell me your opinions in the comments

I've done several polls on the mystery dungeon games on r/Pokemon already but I am mainly looking for a second opinion on these games on the main subreddit for the Pokemon mystery dungeon games which would be this subreddit right here. I will do this with all of the Pokemon mystery dungeon games at some point.
Going through some old games I am displaying and found some duplicates I would like to see if I can sell or trade. I am an avid collector of Nintendo memorabilia, especially Pokemon, so I will definitely entertain trades as well. Timestamps will be posted. Some games have working batters some do not but I will clarify.

Ruby $62 shipped (dry battery but works)
Crystal $73 shipped (does not save)
Leaf Green $82 shipped (saves just fine) Sold

As I mentioned, I also love collectibles. Figures, posters, plush, random cool stuff. Thanks for checking this out!
So I’m trying to boot up my copy of Super Mystery Dungeon, which I haven’t played in nearly 5 years. My 3ds is recognizing that there is a game card inserted and the title is appearing on screen, but whenever I try to start the game, it says “game card could not be read.”
Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so, what is something I could do? It’s probably also worth mentioning that my other ds and 3ds games are working, it’s just this one that doesn’t seem to be working.
Edit: a typo
So I've been playing Mystery Dungeon DX and I just want to gush about it for a moment. Blue Rescue team was my favourite game as a child and has been my comfort game throughout my years. This remake has just captured that magic all over again for me, and I am so glad that people who didn't get to experience blue/red rescue team get this updated version. And believe me, it is updated. This game delivers the same experience as the original while sprinkling some quality of life improvements that the original needed. Chief among these, is Makuhita Dojo. I do miss being able to choose the specific maze you go into, and the tickets thing can be annoying but i feel that in DX the Dojo is a lot more useful because you actually get feedback. You're not just wandering through a maze, you're hunting down enemies. The time limit focuses you, and the auto mode helps speed things up (although I don't use it outside of the dojo because I just like wandering around myself). The tickets also provide more of an incentive to actually go off and do regular rescue missions rather than focusing on the story all the time. Some other quality of life improvements: You don't get a message every time you step on a wonder tile saying that nothing happened when you stepped on the wonder tile. Having multiple teams makes it easier to just pick team members and go off to dungeon, with the added bonus that it feels like you're leading a team of people all doing their own thing.
I wish I could still walk around the friend areas but the absolutely gorgeous art of this game mitigates that loss a bit, and the art style is absolutely stunning. I prefer the old pixel animation but this remake very much keeps the same vibe while updating the art, and allows for camera angles and physical movement of the Pokemon which is great to see. I don't believe they changed any of the writing, it's still great. I mean it still has that RPG weirdness a bit but it's way better than the mainline pokemon game writing. Also telling your partner that you have to go to space is genuinely quite funny, and I love everything with Diglett and Dugtrio.
This game's story though is where it shines and whether you play the original or DX, it has the best story of any pokemon game, except the explorers games. I don't know about Super, I never had a 3ds to play it but I hope we get remakes of those two as well
P. S. If you have any criticisms of the game or any good things I didn't mention, please tell me! I ju... keep reading on reddit ➡

I just recently started playing "Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!" on Switch, an updated version of the Wii game, and it's just so addicting and fun for some reason. There's also just a ton of charm here, even if it can be a tad overboard with the cutesyness, it's just really good. If they had gone the extra mile to voice act everything it would have been amazing in this regard tbh.
Playing on Hard so when you die you lose your stuff keeps it really interesting too, forces you to think carefully about risk reward ratios for your actions, and believe me, I've died a couple times already haha. Although I do kind of blame unfamiliarity with the controls and unexpectedness for both deaths, it's still really awesome having this lurking sense of tension and frankly, fear about what comes next and whether or not you wanna push the envelope just a bit or turn back early in the name of safety.
Anyway I love the gameplay loop, and think it peppers in story elements at a solid pace without keeping you away from the addicting gameplay for too long. I just wanna keep going into these dungeons, dive just a bit deeper, look for some fancy new loot, and just test my luck over and over. These games really are just a great mixture of Diablo style grinding for loot, Roguelike, and JRPG elements and storytelling. I love all of the above so it's a match made in heaven and it really blows my mind how I slept on it for so long.
I think what kept me away was the assumption that it would be too easy for some reason. Like I assumed it would be absolutely faceroll and as a result, completely boring, but like I said, I died a couple times haha, I really can't make that claim at this point, at least on hard.
Have any of you guys played this game, and how did you feel about it if you did? I swear this game seems super lowkey or something, it's so rarely talked about, and I couldn't find very many lets plays of it either, which is always a sign that a game just isn't super widespread or at the very least, not trending. I know it's pretty old and people weren't making lets play videos too often when the game originally released in the wii days but still.
Also, if you do like this sort of game, what other games would you suggest? I know for sure the "Pokemon Mystery Dungeon" games line up perfectly with this game, but is there any other stuff that fits the bill?
#On this day (April 18) in Nintendo history...
What are you favourite memories of these games? How do you think they hold up today? Hash it out in the comments.
(I am a bot. I think that I'm posting Nintendo events from this day in history, but if I've made a mistake or omission please leave a comment tagging /u/KetchupTheDuck).
Many of the Pokémon games have worn pins, so they take a couple of extra blows to be read by a Game Boy. However, almost all of them have pretty pristine labels. All cartridges have been cleaned, and any that have batteries have had the batteries replaced. All of these factors have already been accounted for in the prices.
All prices include USPS First Class shipping within the continental USA.
Willing to ship internationally if buyer pays additional shipping costs.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
Pokémon Emerald - $130 (New battery, broken internal clips, worn pins. The cartridge can still be inserted into a GB without issue, but it is held together only by the tri-wing screw)
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team - SOLD (worn pins)
Pokémon Ruby - $65 (New battery, worn pins)
Pokémon Fire Red #1 - $75 (cracked case. Still holds together just fine, cracks are aesthetic only)
Pokémon Fire Red #2 - $75 (cracked case, worn pins. Still holds together just fine, crack is aesthetic only)
Pokémon Yellow - SOLD (dirty case, worn pins)
Gamecube Broadband Adapter - SOLD
Okay, so basically I’m already well aware of the fact that the Mystery Dungeon series is UNDOUBTEDLY the most favorite and praised spin-off games, with Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky being the child favorite. However, I wanna know if the other ones in the series are worth it? Like Super Mystery Dungeon (especially) and Gates to Infinity (heard it’s bad, is that true?) and to some extend, Rescue Team DX. Think that’s all the ones, did I miss any? Btw, please keep spoilers away. Thank you!
Just a thought I had, and also because I just really want a remake of this game.
Pokemon MD2 (Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky) came out alongside Generation 4, and considering Generation 4 is getting a big comeback in late 2021 and early 2022 (BDSP and Legends Arceus) I think there would be no better time for a MD2 remake. Considering DX came out last year, late-2021 would most likely be too early.
I have no evidence to believe this remake will happen, but it would make my year if it released. This was by far one of my favourite Pokemon games of all time, and I seriously hope Spike Chunsoft makes another remake and does not stop at DX.
Lots of your are saying you'd prefer an entirely new game (PMD5) and I totally agree with you - me wanting a remake is just the nostalgia talking, but just seeing this series continue on the Switch would make me happy, MD is the best spinoff Pokemon game series by far, so I'd be happy with a PMD5 as well - I just hope someday we see a PMD2 remake.
As announced today, one of the minigames from V3: Killing Harmony got an expansion to the point of becoming a full game. It's a board game titled Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp. There was also a Mystery Dungeon/Dragon Quest inspired minigame titled Despair Dungeon: Monokuma's Test in V3.
Therefore, there is now a ^((slight)) chance they'll spun this minigame too into its own game!
And also, if these monsters seem familiar, it's because they were based on the same monsters from the Shiren the Wanderer series.
I've done several polls on the mystery dungeon games on r/Pokemon already but I am mainly looking for a second opinion on these games on the main subreddit for the Pokemon mystery dungeon games which would be this subreddit right here. I will do this with all of the Pokemon mystery dungeon games at some point. This is not explorers of sky, I will do that on the next poll.
