September Progress Report 4
Hey there and welcome to another weekend progress report.
Text verification is approximately 60% complete. I'm lazy to do the maths, but that puts the total progress at 90% or something.
At the moment, all the menu files have been checked (again!), as well as all four BSFE chapters and the three downloadable chapters. Currently, I'm recontinuing progress on the main story and am up to Chapter 14, so progress looks good.
By the way, I have to wonder if people wonder what goes in the verification process? I mean, the text has been translated, edited and proof-read, so what's there left to do? Well, the proof-readers did a fantastic job, but there was one thing they missed--and that's checking the text in the actual game.
So my job is to fix lines that overrun the text boxes, like in the above screenshot:
LEFT: Original | RIGHT: After verification
That's the obvious part. The other thing I can do is make some final adjustments to the text, like in the remaining two screenshots, just to make things sound slightly less awkward and/or to spice things up. I'm a bit picky sometimes!
By the way, the next progress report will probably be my last. At this stage, there's not much left for me to ramble about. I'll of course be furiously working on the patch, but I figure it's about time for me to take a short break from the public.
