"Dondera's Magic Wild!!" is hard to read, but I think it will be easier to read when upscaled to a TV/Fullscreen, or has a filter on it.

And the shading for the yellow surrounding 'Holy Umbrella' is nearly impossible to work with, on the account that the original was 1 pixel wide except when connecting to another symbol. Trying to do that here just looks like trash, and I haven't wanted to try messing around with changing the width.

Here's a title screen I need edited. The translation of the large kanji is "Famicom Detective Club." Thank you.

I think I had finished much of the programming on this.
Waiting while tummai finishes a beta patch to check for context issues.
But I don't suppose there's harm in asking if anybody would like to design a title for The Light of Indra?

I'm waiting for the news to get approved on the site homepage, but for now, I'm curious what your take would be on this:



We're currently aiming for "Hot-Blooded Continent" "Burning Heroes"

Ah, I just finished reading about this on your site's forum just a few minutes ago. To change the red text to "Hot-Blooded Continent" and the below text to "Burning Heroes", correct?

Personally, I think that it would be a good idea to just add the English text below or above the original Japanese text (along with a "Patch not for sale!" like how it was done for Villgust. Those Japanese characters look nice in my opinion. It would also be nice if the English text matched the style of the original Japanese one. Mostly color wise. That's just my take on it.

Oh a random note, while "Hot-Blooded Continent" sounds good on the title screen, I would recommend naming the actual in game dragon summon level meter to either "passion" or better yet, "indignation". "Hot blood" would sound a bit to strange and literal in my opinion. Best of luck with the translation effort! If any help or input is desired, I'll be glad to help if I can. :)

Please no. That would be such an eyesore. Doubt it'd stop anything, either.

I suppose you're right. Just having the fan translation group name on the title screen might be enough to make people think twice about trying to sell a patch. Seems that there was quite a problem with this in the 90s since a number of readmes used to have phrases along the lines on "Please do not sell this as I've worked very hard on it!". I mostly only see that on FAQs now a days. Heh, trying to sell something that can easily be found on the web... What cheap tactics to gain quick cash...

... That IS the final version. The original title screen was more or less in the same spot.

The mockup is exactly like the version in the game. I made the mockup and inserted it a few hours later. You can see the original image (before some extra tweaking) in the screenshots thread.

That looks really nice. I think it might look a little better with some additional fire in the 'C' though.

I need someone to draw up something nice for the three lines of blue text at the bottom (copyright and such).

Here's the translation:

© Bird Studio / Shueisha
Fuji TV / Toei
© Bandai 1996

Widths for each line (height is 16 pixels):
1st: 136 pixels
2nd: 120 pixels
3rd: 112 pixels

Note: The above widths do not include the copyright symbol on the first and third lines. The copyright symbol is 16 pixels wide.

Really appreciate it. :)

Edit4: Here are my new versions... Again, not the same style, but I think they look good.






A cheap mock up (done in Paint!)


(For some reason, my images are coming out kinda icky here, but viewing the image alone, it's fine)

Edit5: DS told me I should try making each one the same height and to also do the copyright, so I'll do that later.

Edit6: I'll work on it on Sunday. I think I may be free then.


Old Bird Studio Shueisha
Old Fuji Tv
Old Bandai 1996

Well... I tried... :/

It's not the same style but that's because of the Shueisha logo. In Japanese, the size is all nice and dandy but Christ... It's long in English.

For the rest, I decided to go with the bunched together versions because of the Shueisha logo BUT I included a spaced out version of the two other fonts.

Hopefully it works well enough.

Edit: Wait... WTF... How'd I miss the part about copyright?! This is good!! *goes back to procrastinating schoolwork*

Edit2: Meh, even without the copyright in there, the Shueisha logo still doesn't fit with spaces in between...

Edit3: Wait, I think I has idea gais!
