30% translation / Vote standing

I’ve finished translating almost the third of Relaxation Yuka. So everything is going smoothly so far.

About the voting:

I’ll let the poll about the next project run until I’m working on Relaxation Yuka. The winner is going to be the new one I’ll be working on next, after this.

So far 211 of you guys have voted (minus some of you who used like 4 accounts to vote for the same game 😡, but I’ll let it pass this time). To be honest I didn’t expect this many votes so soon, so thank you to everyone who voted!

This is the current standing:1.png

It might be a bit skewed to Onee-chan no Yuuwaku’s side, since it looks reaaaally popular at the moment, so I understand the multiple votes there. It looks great in my opinion as well, that’s why I put it on the list in the first place.

But hey, if you don’t like the current standing it’s time to vote, if you haven’t yet, or share it somewhere else. You have a few more weeks to change the standing, or ascertain Onee-chan’s win!!

About the suggestion votes:

There have been 39 suggestions so far. And again, there is a bit of continuous spamming. I’ll let you know, there is no need to spam things. It’s not going to be a majority vote. I’ll look at the suggestions one-by-one and decide by myself. I should have made the rules more clear.

For example:

  • Every vote with games from companies like Alice Soft, Atelier, and many more will be ignored. (Personally, I would love to translate all Alice Soft games, but they are being translated by big companies, so I’d rather not touch them. )
  • As mentioned, don’t vote multiple times. You’re just wasting your and my time.

Please check if the game’s company you suggested, already has a localized game. I have enabled editing of your vote, so if it does, you can change it to something else. Also I made it so you can suggest a game in every length category, if you’d like to do that as well.

Quick update / Release date

Since I received no feedback, I’ve decided to go for an English only title.
It’s going to be: My girlfriend gets aroused watching me have sex with another girl

So, in the last week, I’ve finished the interface and the quality check.
Here are some screenshots of the interface:

12.jpg

To think, that I wasn’t planning on translating the interface at all, I think it looks pretty good. There were some mistakes here and there, but I have made some adjustments.

Since it’s not me doing the encryption, I can’t see my edits as soon as I’m done with them. I have to wait for the programmer helping me, to send me the patch. Which delays stuff sometimes.

My plan is to release the patch on the 23rd, no matter what state it’s in.

Of course, as I said at the very beginning, I’m not a native speaker, so you’ll see mistakes that I overlooked, or simply weirdly worded. I tried to get everything right and coherent, but I have my limits, too.

I’ve had someone ask me, why didn’t I release patches while working on it?
There are multiple reasons for that:

  • I don’t like putting out incomplete work. I think it’s worth waiting for something more polished.
  • A copyright strike during the translation phase would’ve made me drop the project. But now, even if I get striked, I’m done and you can enjoy the full game.
  • If I were to drop the project due to other circumstances, it would’ve been worse to leave it at a “cliffhanger”, than nonexistent to the public.

So, that’s that.

I’m going to make a Discord server. I’ll be writing daily updates, when I work on something, over there. That’s going to be the place, where I’m going to post a normal download link to the patch. Then, I’m going to ask you to save it, host it on your favorite sharing site, so it won’t get taken down easily. I’m going post here on the 23rd again with a link to the discord group, and I’ll explain everything again.

Update 2018.12.07 – Almost

Hi!

It’s been a while again, but let’s get to it!

So, the novel is 100% translated and the English patch is running in-game.

Now, the Japanese script itself has some errors in it. I’ve seen 4. 

  • one case of duplication (two lines appear twice),
  • one line’s latter half is missing,
  • and two instances of two separate lines merging into one.

As of right now, I don’t know how I’m going to deal with them.
Leave them as is, or take liberty?

So, what’s left to do?

  • In-game quality check
  • Interface translation

I’m going to need someone to help me with interface translation since it’s mostly .png files and I lack the patience/skill for it. I tried, I swear. So anyone with PS skills and willingness, please message me or comment.

One last thing about the title of the game:

  • Leave it in romaji: 

Hoka no Onna no Ko to H o Shiteiru Ore o Mite Koufun Suru Kanojo

  • Translate it to English:

My girlfriend gets aroused watching me have sex with another girl

  • Both, romaji with English subtitle:

Hoka no Onna no Ko to H o Shiteiru Ore o Mite Koufun Suru Kanojo
-My girlfriend gets aroused watching me have sex with another girl-

 

Any other suggestions are welcome!

All in all, please hang in there just a little longer.
Thank you for still sticking around!

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!
