I'm not so sure it means much but I've been impressed lately.
First of all, Arch left pretty easy. I'm impressed it wasn't a big deal. Though it shouldn't have been. (Again no offense to anyone.)
Second, NO ONE voted that they won't play this game. I was expecting at least one jerk to say he wouldn't just to be funny and put one vote on that part. But it didn't happen. I'm shocked, and impressed.
Third, something you guys might actually want to hear--the translations are going extremely fast. So fast that our localizers, Ryan, Vi, Pandorakun, Illumio, and Martze
Jokes aside we're kicking through the main story like nothing--I think the sidequests are at about 50% done and the actual main main story is making progress. We're also slowly working on graphics and we may have found someone to help us on that matter since you know, we're still kinda looking for a full-time graphics artist. If this person doesn't work out I have one more back-up person, then I search again, and the last resort is that I do it myself, which I really don't want to do.
...That's about it, I figured you guys needed one of my rants since I haven't given one in a while (insert sarcastic face here). Take it easy, we'll put up some screens and a video or two within a week or so, so don't go tiger on us yet.
Did you mean that 50% of the story is translated or localizedReplyDelete
You guys are doing an amazing job by the way and I'm really surprised you've been able to do so much so quickly. You probably already know this but hundreds of people (at least I hope its hundreds of people) are really grateful for it
yes we are excited about the project that's why we want to play it :)ReplyDelete
Haha! I screamed like an excited girl at the post....how embarasssing.ReplyDelete
I guess it turned out that people who visit a website for a game's fan translation intend to play that game's fan translation.ReplyDelete
You expected me to be a pain? :PReplyDelete
^Hah, ironic that it's even an option, huh?ReplyDelete
@Ian lol if it were really that embarassing why post about it?
@Anonymous2 teehee :D
@Anonymous1 the *sidequests* are about 50% done I think. I THINK, I think 3x, 6x, and 10x are done, and I think that's 50%, but I really haven't confirmed anything so don't hold me to it. Though given how fast TheEnd is the sidequests won't last much longer >_>
WOW! Glad to hear things are going well. And now that you've said that, you know someone's going to pick that option, right?ReplyDelete
I seriously wish my job gave me more free time, I'd love to help out in the graphics part. ;.; Stupid me and my need for cash.
Seeing how well this translation is going, maybe it's finally safe for me to play Shadow Dragon. I've been putting it off so I wouldn't finish it too soon and have to wait long to play the sequel. :3
You are looking for a graphics artist to make the text graphics? Will they be expected to be inputting the graphics themselves? What are the expectations of them? Depending on what you require, I may be fit for this position...ReplyDelete
You need to be able to edit graphics in general, keep images under a color limit (e.g. 16 colors, 256 colors), use the same color schemes as the images given to you, be able to take out Japanese fonts and replace them with similar-looking English fonts, etc... the main thing is the font work. You'll also need to be able to work around a few difficulties such as formatting (some images will be oddly shaped, in multiple pieces, kind of like a puzzle). I'll do most of the graphic insertion (at least that's what is planned) as well as ripping, so you don't need any hacking skills--just graphic skills.ReplyDelete
Oh, that's simple. I'm wondering why nobody has applied for this position? At any rate...ReplyDelete
If you would like to test me on this or anything of the sort, you're able to reach me through e-mail: Veperine@live.com
It would be an honor to offer my services here, considering the amount of free time I have (other than getting a few commissions out of the way on DA), haha...
Supposedly it is... I have someone else applying, I have to test them too actually, but I'll definitely keep you in mind in case things don't work out on that end, so thanks. :)ReplyDelete
Oh. My. God.ReplyDelete
I love you guys.
I want to marry you guys.
All of you. At the same time.
Although if I did, my brother would hate me.
He thinks you broke his computer, because a troll said you broke theirs alittle while ago.
"how in the world did I manage to remember all those names"ReplyDelete
I know how! You've seen our names so many times with the files and the periodic checkups that they've become part of your mid, right? /shot
Or maybe just luck.
Anyway, what you said is true. There are so many files to go through but we'll catch up eventually.
We'll soldier on and finish all the files eventually. Key word being eventually... don't worry, I'll be back as soon as my exams get over.ReplyDelete
That being said, I found out that Something Awful is having an IntSys Appreciation month in their let's play forum. The games being LP'd are: FE1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, AW:DS, AW:DoR, with FE2 and 10 already archived in the LPArchive. Just thought I'd leave that here, seeing as we're IntSys fans too.
Love you guys, just go with the flow!ReplyDelete
Well, when it comes to unfinished projects, i'm no stranger- half of my friends code and work with graphics.ReplyDelete
However, since I work with a differing area of graphics (Video Editing), i'm not going to be of much help in the graphics area for this project.
However, as a writer, and a very stringent editor, I would be willing to take a pre-release beta and go through it one more time as from a gaming prospective and see if there's anything that could use more refinement.
Nothing against your proofreaders, of course, but for a project of this size, there's bound to be things that slip through the cracks.
No thanks, I don't think we're ready to do that, especially given the possibility of people leaking the game and the fact that without a system to release the beta it wouldn't be fair. Not to mention we don't even plan on having a beta, and not to mention that this is a translation so we only have to worry about things from a "translation perspective" for the most part, not a "gaming perspective" as we only make the translation, not the game. xDReplyDelete
Well, like i said before, if you can provide the font, i can do the image editing, and fast.ReplyDelete
Pandorakun: They're having an IS appreciation month without any Paper Mario? Tell them to play more Paper Mario!ReplyDelete
@Anonymous (above me): Here you go. Lots of Paper Mario. I wasn't aware that was also IntSys though.ReplyDelete
I just wanna say, I really think it's cool that you guys will be hacking the graphics, too. I mean, I'm playing FE6 right now, and it's super annoying not being able to read some graphics. You guys need a giant thank-you cake for being so thorough <333ReplyDelete
Heh sure lookin forward to the translation. Keep it up:)ReplyDelete
"Well, like i said before, if you can provide the font, i can do the image editing, and fast."ReplyDelete
- If I could provide the font and could translate Japanese this translation would be over by now [s]not really but that's the joy of exaggeration[/s]
Never give up... trust in your instinct !!!ReplyDelete
Bro, I live off my instincts ;)ReplyDelete
Bra, your instincts are rustling my fire emblem jimmies.Delete
Honestly, I'm looking forward to this. It's coming along nicely too, good work.ReplyDelete
Wow, you guys are doing amazing work! :D Keep it up!ReplyDelete
So can't wait to play this ^.^
Excuse me, what?ReplyDelete
wait, was that a reply to my last mark about "don't go tiger on us?" cuz I haven't posted screens?ReplyDelete
If so let's just say I "injured myself" while playing "catch", so I'm not feeling too "mighty" myself, mmkay? Should be back to a livable schedule within a few days
Okay. Blazer, one question regarding a question in the FAQ. Okay, my problem is this. Your screen shots show that dialog, like the conversation between your character and Athena. However, I patched it and have done everything but it still translated? You said somewhere that the screenshots are just a demo. But when I go to the progress tab, and the dialogue is 100% finished, I have doubts. Help? :DReplyDelete
See, the patch isn't going to be released until everything is done - meaning everything. The dialogue has been translated, but has to be proofread and then inserted into the game. The patch up for download doesn't have, therefore, much translated dialogue.ReplyDelete
Ahh. I see, thank you.ReplyDelete
