As most of you are probably not aware, New Mystery's base conversations are divided in 8 pairs (for male/female My Unit) of files. And those 8 pairs are divided in 3 types of dialogue.
Files 1 and 2 are mostly explanations given by various characters to My Unit about various topics. They mostly feature background info and various hints.
Files 3 and 4 are "support" talks between various characters of the game, like Marth/Caeda, Bantu/Tiki and Paola/Est. Since these don't involve My Unit directly, they're two pairs of identical files.
And finally, files 5 to 8 are My Unit's "support" conversations with pretty much every other playable member of the cast. (Those who have already played the original game probably have an idea of which characters don't get conversations, and why.)
The purpose of this post is to report that the base translation (before proofreading/localization) of those #5-8 files has been finished, which puts us at roughly 50% overall progress... well, actually a little more, but hey. It isn't exactly easy to count.
Expect teasers from Vincent soon!
wow! 50% already!? os this means that all menus are done and base convos are half way, so the translation will prolly be finished before june?ReplyDelete
Don't forget that the main story still hasn't been translated at all, since we aren't going to simply copy-and-paste FE3's script and Agromono is still finishing the Prologue.ReplyDelete
Also proofreading has been going at a pretty good clip. As soon as a text is available for us, we usually get right to it.ReplyDelete
This is excellent news! Thanks for sharing :DReplyDelete
Wow! Thank you for your hard work!ReplyDelete
Pretty excited for this.ReplyDelete
You guys can do it! \o/ReplyDelete
Yeah, 50% means with the base convos. Though we're roughly (and this is a totally "off-the-top-of-my-head" statistic, so don't quote me on it) 50% done with graphical text too (we've figured most of it out but we haven't necessarily had the graphics worked on due to a lack of a graphics artist at the moment), so I'm guessing by spring time we should mostly have the main dialog to work with (i.e. everything but the main script should be finished, and the main script should be in progress). This is just a little guessing around to calm the masses about having to know every little bit of progress, if I really was sure of anything I'd be posting about it ._.ReplyDelete
So, who else is upset about Fire Emblem 3DS being the first Nintendo title to have paid DLC?ReplyDelete
eh, i have a mac os. is the patching process going to be different?ReplyDelete
Your patching process will be "find a pre-patched ROM on the internet"ReplyDelete
to the anonymous that said "your patching process wil be find a pre-patched ROM on the internet"ReplyDelete
isn't that illegal?
Hope you guys had a great xmas, keep it up!ReplyDelete
I have a mac and I'm perfectly able to patch roms with something called MultiPatch, I think.ReplyDelete
Either way, there are ways to do it. Silly people.
Yeah, there are ways, I just don't have a Mac and can't really support any of them, so Mac users are on their own. That's the fault of Mac users, I discriminate against them, I hate Max... I mean Macs...ReplyDelete
"So, who else is upset about Fire Emblem 3DS being the first Nintendo title to have paid DLC? "
- I think people who are upset about this are being a little... *cough* no offense, but silly and maybe butthurt. There are SO many positives to this. First of all, we're getting downloadable content, which is better than not getting it. Well, assuming it comes to the U.S. Second of all, the game is going to be advertised as the first game to have paid DLC content, giving it more attention, which the series direly needs. Third, we're getting a new effing Fire Emblem. IN 3D. With what seems like cool characters (with voice acting), graphics (3D, animations that look better than PoR at the least--they took my interest, that's for sure), gameplay (duel battles, skills, world map) and story (has supports and it's not a sequel, so we're FINALLY getting a TRULY new game).
There are so many positives that paying a little money for DLC content which will probably be fun is just a small nuisance. And hey, we'll be supporting a series that needs just that--support--and games are going to be like this from now on anyway, so it just means FE is becoming more modernized. :\
Well anyway that's my opinion so while you may disagree I cannot comprehend how a Fire Emblem fan could be so disappointed just because the DLC content now requires money... and you're free to explain it to me but I don't think I'll EVER understand. And no I'm not rich, I spend like $100 on video games a year on average, including systems. So yeah, that's all I have to say on the matter. Sorry for the rant. XD
XD i have a mac and i hate it tooReplyDelete
Mac users can just install wine, then open wine cmd and use the WINE windows command prompt to patch the ROM.ReplyDelete
Will there be a patch released once the supports are finished? Incremental patches are very popular and reflect better on a translation than "hold-all-the-pie" tactics.ReplyDelete
I believe there's little point in releasing a content (as opposed to menu) patch without the main story.ReplyDelete
I'm with TheEnd and most of the rest of the team. Also, sometimes professionalism > popularity.ReplyDelete
Good news then, eh, I most likely won't comment much, my Uncle was killed just a few minutes, ago, a horrible situation me and my family are in, I found out when my Dad began shouting downstair, I went out of my room to see what was wrong, and my much older brother who just came out of his room heard my Uncle was killed, my God, that such a thing could happen.ReplyDelete
Well, anyways, keep up the good work.
any chance we get a patch for this before the next game is released in Japan? odds are that wont be translated either.ReplyDelete
Chance? Yes. Likely? Highly not.ReplyDelete
@Ian that's really terrible but like, you should talk to a professional therapist or something, an FE12 translation forum can't help you with your personal problems, no offense... :/
