I didn't know until today that you were translating this. Great job so far!

So they were using a hacked Russian RPG Maker XP? Interesting. I'm curious why the fonts didn't appear correctly, as they've been Unicode since Windows 95.

That problem stems from something the translation team did to RMXP to put Russian into it. It must rely on something that exists in Russian Windows that doesn't exist with a Russian MUI or locale. What that might be, I have no idea, but as someone who was an IT guy in another life I'd be intellectually curious to find out what happened with it.

As for the game, I have hit a snag. Well, two snags. One, I have to move out by the end of the month in something that will take a miracle to pull off, so if anything gets done over the next three weeks that is a victory. I'll probably do something, but I can't say how much. Another issue I've been fighting with for the last few days - the cutscenes are displaying in Russian! I went back into the editor, confirmed all of the text was changed, moved it out of Russian Windows and into US Windows and all of the cutscenes still display the original Russian text. I saw the names of the characters change the second I got into a random battle so it isn't like none of the changes are being displayed somehow. It's an isolated problem I don't claim to understand. I'm guessing something is different on the backend with those cutscenes? I'm completely out of ideas for things to try. I sent what I have so far to Di.H to see if he knows what needs to be done. My best guess is that the text needs to be changed somewhere else in the database too, but where that might be is beyond me at this point.

I fixed the problem and sent the Oresama build.
I also asked him for permission to post screenshots with translation.

My keyboard died and I am stuck with on screen keyboard right now. Will be brief. I got the new files and the problem looks fixed. If Di.H wants to share screenshots I am fine with that.

Hope you find a new keyboard soon! Otherwise I have several to spare... ^^

Looking forward to it, just hoping I will be able to run this using Wine under Linux!

Btw, how long is this game compared to the canonical PS-games?

Skymandr, the game was made on rpg maker xp which is already outdated, so if you can run the designer himself, then the game should work.
On the second question, you mean gameplay time length?

Some screenshots.

Great! If nothing else, I think I've got an old XP-computer somewhere.

Yes, that's what I meant.

For anyone concerned with XP compatibility, you should be able to use the Russian version to test it. Make sure you install the included font files or you won't see any text. Alternatively, try running any other game made with RMXP. You can find several here:

Sorry that there were no posts. I wrote to Oresama's mail, but he does not respond. I hope he's doing well and the translation goes well too.
Here are some more screenshots from the last build that he sent me in November.

All good man, he did mention some personal stuff going on. Looks like an impressive amount of progress has been made at least.

How did I miss this? This is great!
On the other news Openrpgmaker seems to be pretty much dead. All updates to the site and fecebook are from 2014. :\

Life continues to be extremely busy, but I should be back at it not too long after the new year.
