Q. What is Harvest Moon: A Proud Life?
A. Harvest Moon: A Proud Life is a mod of both Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life with the goal of enabling same-sex relationships
Q. How did you make the mod?
A. Essentially, I swapped the protagonist from each game. That is, the female protagonist will be put into A Wonderful Life (where she can pursue relationships with the bachelorettes) and the male protagonist will be put into Another Wonderful Life (where he can pursue relationships with the bachelors).
Q. How do I use the mod (.xdelta) files?
A. To use the mod, you must apply the patch to a dumped disc image (.iso) of the game using XDelta.
Q. Where can I get a rom/iso of Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life / Another Wonderful Life?
A. I will not be providing links to any roms. The expectation is that you utilize your own copy of the original game. You’ll need to dump your game disc using a tool such as CleanRip.
Q. Will there be any additional features (e.g. new characters or romance options)?
A. There won’t be any additional features added to the game. Currently, that would involve too much work with the game’s core code, which I don’t have any way of easily editing.
Q. What progress has been made so far?
A. I’ve been able to edit many of the games files, including dialog (.mes files), textures (.tpl files) and some other files (e.g. .arc U8 archives).
I’ve gone through and swapped what textures I currently can on the discs.
I’ve also reviewed/edited a fair amount of dialog for the games, but it’s not quite near completion yet.
Q. What still needs work?
A. The primary work currently is reviewing/editing dialog, especially the spouse/child dialog.
Q. How can I help?
A. I’m always looking for people to help review dialog.
