But :

* Even if it happens, I don't see why an english version would be wanted since the game would be the same (for example, there are tons of localized versions of Genesis games, but very few of GBA or Saturn remakes)

Sorry, I didn't quite get it...
It was related to my post, right?

And speaking of localized genesis games, I'm not sure if I mentioned it already but PS2/3/4 were released on Steam. Pretty neat, huh?

@Tryphon We can try it out.
Courier New is not my favorite font, either. Out of the monospaced fonts, I like Lucida Console more.
This will be a fun experiment!

Here's the courier font (rename as DAT) :

I'll generate a Lucida Console later in the day.

I think I have a way to help you with the translation, a way to contribute...
Have you already translated the enemies' names? If not, I could try...

Thanks, xrick, but I already translated them in the game. I appreciate the offer though. Tryphon, I tried the font. It works for the most part. The m is cut off on the right even with the originak spacing.the font is a pale gray, so it is hard to see.

With the names of the game or the old american ones?

Ok. For the m, it's cut in the sheet, so I made a mistake computing the offset. I have to give a deeper insight, and I've some work up to Friday. When I have time, I look into it, and fix it (it can be nothing but a stupid computing mistake). I'll make a Lucida console then.

For the pale gray, it's due to the fact that the font is thin. I think we must choose a bold font anyway.

Did Orakio's team reveal you how to change the font width ? I looked into the portuguese translation, it seems that the characters are smaller.

Once again I tried to appeal to the SEGA Blog/Forum Admins by sending this PM to Edward@Sega (who loves PS) and Clumsyorchid (who loves RPGs):
Sorry for bothering you again but I have to try...

I saw last week that PS2-4 have been released on Steam and that's great, wondering why PS1 couldn't get the same treatment...
But my gripe is, why can't the same be done to the 3D AGES games, specially PSG:1&2?
I'm serious when I say there's lots of people wishing for those games to come out of Japan, to not mention the wish of seeing PSG:3 done and join the other two...

Is there really no hope, for now, of seeing those two come out of Japan?

From those two, only Clumsyorchid answered, with this reply:
We released the original Genesis / Megadrive games - we're not publishing the 3D Ages games unless otherwise announced.

A too short of an answer I was hoping to get from them... Then I replied with this:
I know that... But is there really no hope of having them released anytime soon?

So far... No answer... Can't they really see that there's many fans who yearn for those games? I really don't get them...


I'm sorry if this is falling out of context of the topic but I wanted to share this with you, who are working on the fan-translation.

Here's the fixed (I hope) courier DAT file :

FONT-courier.zip
(257.02 KiB) Downloaded 235 times


And a Lucida Console :

FONT-lucida.zip
(257.02 KiB) Downloaded 234 times


There may be issues with gray colors on the boundaries.

Also, could you play a little with letter spacing and post the result ? I quote Orakio for this :

orakio_rob wrote:Go to the offset 00015214 and you'll see the value 14. Change this value and you'll change the spacing! I'm currently using 0E.


I think we should fix this problem quickly, or else you'll have to check all word-wrappings.

Sorry for the delay. The Lucida works very well. My only suggestion would be to raise the lowercase g a tiny bit. I provided some pictures.

I have been using that offset value; I have it set to 11, since the font Orakio is using is much smaller then ours. However, this only applies to dialogue text,not the spells/items, and their descriptions.

Xric, I have been using the direct translation from the game, not the old version. I have made some changes from other translations available online. For example, "Dispair" looks alot more like "Deathbearer"to me,especially when the kana is pronounced.

The g's need to be higher just a tiny bit.

Looks good, nonetheless.
Could you just adjust the emulator's resolution to 640x448? It's the game's natural resolution.

Also, could you people tell me the config you use for the emulator? I've been having trouble to make the games run...

No need...
The latest version of PCSX2 is great and can run the games on it's native resolution.

If none of you have the latest version just check on Google, you'll easily find it :D

Ok. Can someone briefly tell me how the translation going on..?

I'm just too lazy to read all the thread since I last visited here. Especially when like half of the posts in this thread is semi-off-topic by Ben and xrick. Stupid arguments...

I wouldn't call it stupid, just unnecessary blanter, but that depends on each one's point of view...

About the translation, quite a bit has been happening, but one of the things is the advancement in the library and font width of the texts.
More than that you'll have to wait to see if anyone else gives you more details of this or just read the topic.

Our argument ended 4 pages ago. Way to exaggerate.
