    I.  Intro / comments
    	Before Might & Magic VIII was ported to the jp ps2, the last game in the
    main series to appear on a console was Might & Magic III, almost ten years
    previously.  It's a very faithful port of the PC version, with just a few minor
    changes.  I would recommend this game only to devoted fans of the series - it's
    hard to find, the graphics are dated, and you have to be able to load it.
    Still, for those who do really enjoy the series, it's impressive to see it
    displayed on a large television while moving around with the ps2 controller.
    If only they'd ported VI instead. Anyway,  the sole purpose of this guide is to
    translate back to English what was translated in the jp ps2 version.  This only
    covers the menus and such, not the dialog of the game, of which there's far too
    much to be even remotely feasible.    I assume that you're already familiar with
    the game and what needs to be done to advance the plot and progress, if not,
    check a full walkthrough.  As far as content, except for the very few places
    noted,  the game is exactly the same as the PC version.
    II.  Changes / Popegg support
    	There are two main ingame differences that I've found.  First, in the very
    beginning of the game, there is a short new introductory area.  I believe that
    the main purpose of this was to gain familiarity with the controls.  You start
    in a stone room, and a Minotaur gives you instructions to avoid the red squares
    on the floor and make it to the next room.
     	After you successfully complete this room, you are given instructions to
    now follow the red path on the floor.  If you fall off the path, you're returned
    to the beginning.  In this third room you encounter a sizeable group of Coatl.
    It's best to just run past them to the exit (unless perhaps you're a troll).
    After you're outside this tiny dungeon, you'll be on a small island with a large
    group of friendly pirates and lizardmen.  There is a boat that will take you to
    Dagger Wound Isles for free.  You can't return  once you leave, but as there's
    no reason to, set sail.
    	The only other change I've found is in the scale of the maps.  Distances
    between places on the overworld map are shorter than they are on the PC version.
    For instance, on Dagger Wound Isle, it's entirely possible to set sail for
    Ravenshore without ever having set foot in the Abandoned Temple- you can jump
    onto the water and make it to the island with the boat to Ravenshore before you
    drown.  This isn't possible (with a low level party) on the PC version at all.
    	The other main difference isn't related to the gameplay, but rather
    peripheral support.  There is a little known peripheral for the ps2, the Popegg
    printer.  It's a usb printer designed specifically for the ps2.  It comes with
    a Printfan software for creating postcards you could send to your friend.
    Fairly useless, but a fun novelty if you take the time to track one down.
    Anyway, if you press select at any point during the game,  and you have a
    Popegg connected, you can print out a picture of the screen.  You have three
    choices for the quality of the picture (and how long it takes to print).  The
    quality of the picture is decent, but limited by the small size of the paper.

    VII.  Outro / Contact Information
    Well, I wonder whether or not this guide will be of use to anyone other than
    myself; I took on this project mainly so I could more easily play through the
    game.  The only site that currently has permission to host this guide is
    gamefaqs.com.  However, I'm very likely to grant permission to host this guide,
    especially given its very limited audience, to anyone who asks.  Still, I ask
    that you do seek permission before you host this guide on your site.  Finally,
    for anyone who actually has this version of the game and used this guide,
    I'd love to hear about it.
