Update 2018/03/02 – 100% Translated

Hi, it’s been a while!

First, I would like to apologize for disappearing. And a big thank you for everyone who waited. My life has been kind of crazy these past years, partly because of health and financial problems. I always wanted to come back, but I just couldn’t, up until now.

About the project:

In February, I finished translating the game. After that, I started going through the script and fixing my mistakes, which there are quite a lot of. I’m trying to make it more understandable and unified, so I’ll take my time. My plan is to finish up in March and move on to the next game, but…

Problems:

I’ve been thinking about the legality of this, and I have to contact the publisher somehow. I need some kind of approval to post any part of the game. Even if it’s just a patch containing a single file. I doubt they’d go to court with me, but I don’t exactly want to get DMCA’d either. I’ve looked around a bit and most VN publishers are against fan translations, and take them down quickly. It would be sad if all of this would go to waste. So, if you have any suggestion about this, please leave a comment or contact me.

If everything goes well:

I want to keep on doing this. I have a list of games I want to work on, and I was thinking about putting up a poll, so you guys could vote about what should be the next one. But there is no point, if I don’t have approval from that publisher.  For example I have a few Alice Soft games on the list, but I highly doubt they’d like that. We’ll see, though.

Anyway, I’ll try to keep you guys updated this time around! Thanks again!

Shiori route 100% translated!

Another route done with translation. Only one more left!

If everything goes well, I can probably finish it by the end of the month. And after that comes the checking and other boring stuff. Which will probably take a while as well.

Thanks for the support!

Misa route 100% translated!

So, I’m finally done translating the first route, yay!

It’s been going quite well for the last two weeks. If this goes on, I can finish a route per month. At least that’s what I’m aiming for. After that comes the testing/editing. And it would be nice to figure out a way to translate the menu, too.  But that’s for later.

I won’t be releasing a partial patch, since there was no in-game check just yet, and it’s more convenient for me this way.

The next route will be Shiori’s. I will start working on it tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Update 2015/11/22

Hey guys!

First of all I want to apologize for the lack of updates.
I know it’s been a while since I posted something.

Okay, let’s get to it:

First of all, I got accepted to university so that is the main reason why I don’t have that much time anymore.  But the good part is that my major is Japanese culture and language so I’m improving my skills day by day (at least I’d like to think). I do have plans with this major so, I want to give my best.

Second, of course I do have my private life as well, and I was bedridden for a while, so that’s time wasted too.

Now to the main problem:

You may have realized as I worked on the translation, I’m way behind with the editing. The reason for that is, the engine of this game is garbage.
I reached a point in the game, where if I apply my translation the game loops. I have no idea how to fix this, mainly because I’m no programmer.
I did have someone helping me with cracking and stuff. He said he’ll try to figure out something, but I haven’t heard from him for months. I’m sure he has his reasons, too.

The thing is even if I translate the whole thing, I can’t fix this looping shit. So unless someone is brave enough to figure out what’s wrong, the game will be unplayable.

Anyway, this problem greatly dropped my morale back then. Plus It’s about to be exam time over here, so I’m going to focus on that, but I’ll try to start coming back.

So there you have it, I’ll continue to translate when I have time and feel like it, but currently I have no way to edit things. However if you are a pro with programming, or just familiar with this engine and you’d like to help me, I’d appreciate that.

Thanks for reading.
