Hacks, translation projects, etc..

Post by wiibrewfan » Sat May 28, 2011 10:50 pm

I was surprised that there hasn't been any activity on translation projects or graphical hacks after the iso encrypter was released.

I tried my best..

I don't think that the game is playable through google translate :D

If I just could figure out how to alter the length of strings (so far I've cheked, that the length is not in the first byte before string or the first byte after string) and, If I could understand japanese, this project would be possible. Slow... But possible.

I'm too tired to check typos, or major grammatical errors. Sorry.

Great work! We have talked about translation projects but they don't seem to be going anywhere unless it's all under the covers.

I love the you are doing BFS! If you want better translations via the web try cross translating it between Google Translate, Yahoo! Babel Fish and freetranslation.com. I've noticed by comparing the differences, similarities and what topic you are on you can generally get accurate enough a translation to know what you should write.

Hi!

Thanks for cross translating tip. If I'm able to solve the issue with string lengths, and the issue with autoreplacing all the strings in the files, I could at least release all ingame text in one big file and ask for help in either real or tranlsation machine based translation.

I'm still working on this, so I post more information as the work progresses.
