Reverse Psychology

Blazer

So while I contemplate actually making a post with noteworthy progress (hint: I won't), I thought it'd be funny to ask you guys a question you've asked us many times before.

When will this project be done?

It's been asked in many different shapes and forms, and our answer has been "we don't know". So, what I'm asking of YOU guys is to predict when YOU think the translation will be done. Just leave a comment like the example below with when you think the project will be finished. If you guess the date right, we may just have a special surprise for you! Make sure you're logged into some sort of account, too: if you're anonymous, I can't prove who you are because even IP addresses can change!

Name: That Dude***
Date: Month, Day, Year

Disclaimer: Must be 13 years or older to enter; try to limit flaming, spam, jokes (if I don't think it's funny, it's just not funny), etc., and try not to use a date already posted by someone else unless you'll have a mental block if you don't.

***Doesn't have to actually be your name.

    I try my chance, but I want to say that if all the dates posted are not correct, it's absolutely not a problem, because you have to take your time and you will only release when it's done seriously, and when it will be translated and the most important, tested. The translation for the patch is not all that needs to be done, a big test needs to be done to see if there are bugs or grammar faults etc as well which should take quite some time... Anyway, even if I put a date, if it's still not released, I will still wait because I am patient! Good luck anyway for the rest!

    This is more wishful thinking then anything but it'd be cool if it came out on my B-day. whenever it comes out I'll be happy though. thanks for doing this translation.

  7. Mhm, sorry, I just realized a flaw in my thinking. I thought I could track you through IP addresses but then I remembered that those could change depending on various aspects so you now have to be signed into some account so that you can prove who you are later (assuming you get the date right). I've updated the first post accordingly--also added a note saying you don't have to use your real name.

    1. Also, in response to someone else's question, we don't know when it'll be finished (or else we'd have told you and this would be pointless), so we'll be looking back on these after we DO finish and we'll see if someone guessed it right and assuming we can contact them, reward them somehow (it'll be something Fire Emblem related, but that's all I can say).

  30. Another thing: how often is the progress page updated? Because that might contribute to why some people are questioning you about your progress.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Very very very rarely. Told them they should update it more often a while back and the response wasn`t friendly.

      What they told me? They said there`s a date that says when it was last updated so it`s okay if it`s not up to date.

      Pretty much break the point of having this page in the first place but who am I to judge :P 19 feb 2012 last update (story up to 50% since then...maybe more)

      Delete
    2. Sorry bro, didn't mean to be unfriendly. We update it when we can but uh, most of the guys on the team actually have lives... no wait, we all do, sadly, not having a social life would be so much less stress, so like, I can't update it very often, and the only other person who'd really be qualified to update it would be Vincent I think, and he's also very busy (he's the creator of Serenes Forest, and everyone knows how amazing that site is, and all the new FE13 info is a ton of work to keep up with). We'll update it when we make huge progress but we haven't had much to update with ATM, sorry. I have like 10 other online things I'm supposed to catch up on so after I finish those (God knows when) I'll stop by and update the progress page, and if I don't do it soon, please do make a comment reminding me, I check the comments here on my phone once in a while.

      Delete
    3. Just saying that page is worthless since it's supposed to be where to go to know the progress of the translation and it doesn't serve that purpose. And if you are so busy as to not update that page, why make it in the first place? I just don't get it I suppose but hey I don't want to make you lose your time, you are very busy after all. lol.

      Delete
    4. Why bother coming here then if you're just going to whine about it? It's really nice of these guys to translate the game for us, you can't expect them to put every minute of their lives to this site. I'm just grateful for their job with this, try to show some respect...

      Delete
    5. @ChDa Obviously, I come here for the translation, I do appreciate the work they are doing.

      That being said, they keep saying they want this project to look like something official and so, I act as if it were. So when I was first answered roughly while I asked nicely, it kinda shocked me. Then, when they say they don't have time to update it, which really shouldn't take that much time to change a couple of number, well this doesn't look very much professional. Maybe I am asking a lot from them but I don't take those answer as good answer from any other "official project".

      Also, Blazer have shown a lot of people disrespect on this Blog and I don't think that because he manage it, it allow him to do as he please. So I'll show him respect and he show everyone some respect.

      That all being said, most of you will probably think I am an asshole or something along those lines. Truth be told I probably said things out of line, nobody is perfect. In the end though, this really is a good project which will help me understand more than the main lines of the story as my Japanese is pretty bad. So I do appreciate the work of everyone who's linked to the project. Good job.

  39. It'll be -done- on September 17th, but not released until near the end of that month. My oracular pig ate the stick that would have told me -why- this will happen. :/

  40. It's not going to be either of the two last dates, guaranteed. I will personally delay or rush the release if need be.

    You'll kick it into high gear when the end-of-the-world prophecies start looking to be true, but unfortunately, when the fatal day hits, there will be one major issue left that you just can't release without fixing. Then the world *won't* end, and, the stress suddenly relieved, you'll see an obvious solution to the problem.

    A highly unlikely guess, and probably overdone, but oh well.
