Maybe you and I both read the same thing recently! ...
I've taken a stab a translating a couple of Japanese PC ADV and RPGs, and one refreshing thing is the standard of writing tends to be significantly higher as the intended audience is at an adult reading level. They also tend to use a lot of kanji which can make reading raw a challenge, but are helpful in translation as the intended meanings are clearer.
Liking the new format. Looks very good! Still clean and easy to use but with some key enhancements. Miss the darker blue theme though[RHDN Pro], it's easier on the eye's and simply classic RHDN. And if I may suggest HTTPS? Remember reading that it was being worked on but can't remember what the difficulty was. With hacking and MITM attacks becoming more and more prevalent, it would seem very wise to start using it. If there is a cost to making it happen, maybe setup a Patreon so we all can offer donations to the running costs and upkeep of the site.Yeah, yeah. I made a post earlier in this thread voicing my opinions on this new design on the desktop computer. But recently I've taken a look at it on a mobile smartphone and, needless to say, I'm quite disappointed. The information/content feel very restricted. Selecting on a menu option to open up a drop-down menu is a bit clumsy as it usually may be on a smartphone - I needed to wait for an external menu (browser's menu) to pop up before moving my finger around the outside and then clicking on a sub-menu. Very clumsy of course. But checking the submissions page I see no 'Reasons' category like the others have pointed out.
Especially like the screen shot for new projects! Very cool touch.
Go to Profile -> Account Settings, then hover over the "Modify Profile" button to reach the Look and Layout section; you can change the forum theme there.
Personally I'm going to stick with the old standard theme - this new one is a little too spread out for my liking.
Because it's a bunch of extra clutter that is completely irrelevant to what you're doing. Keep in mind that this mess shows up on every, single, page.
If anything this just further highlights the problems, as it starts eating up space from the given page you're actually interested in being on.
Honestly I was kind of excited when I saw the update, but if anything I feel the website is worse than before. A showcase of recently added content seems pointless, since we have regular news posts to that. But I can't help but agree what having some extra visibility to old content on the site is great. But the amount of space allocated to that should be a reasonable amount, and preferably restricted to the front page. If I'm a search page or an article chances are I already know or have an idea of what I'm looking for, no need to barf out unrelated content at me that eats up screen space (and page load time/bandwidth, what with the extra images).
I looked numerous times last night and just looked today. I couldn't find anything to change the theme for the main site.
Same here. I like the new layout of the main site and forum but when I select the Metroid theme the forum has the old layout and the main site is unchanged. The new layout with the Metroid theme colors would be cool enough for me.
I'm using Firefox and Windows 7 and the main page does not have the menu on the left side.
EDIT: I even cleared my browser history and reloaded the page but it still did not appear.
I (and I think a couple people before me) figured it out. The updated site, on the default theme, requires users to have a display with greater than 1366 px (which is my laptop's maximum display width) to see the left sidebar. Alternately, zooming out to 90% in Google Chrome seemed to do it, for me. Changing the theme from RNDH Boss to RNDH Pro changed the site back to what it was before, but for those who are curious, yes, the Metroid theme is still there and fully-compatible with the new HTML5/CSS3 backend! At least, as far as I can tell.
So... yeah! The new theme is not exactly ideal and I would have gotten used to it, but I'm infinitely happy that I don't even have to! Yay!
Edit: Changing the site theme also changes the forum theme, just like always. (You can still set the forum theme independently of the site theme, though.)
Oh yeah, there are plenty of bugs in the original version of this game. I didn't introduce any (well, I did at one point, but was able to fix it). Here's the list of bugs that I remember. I asked my testers not to report them as errors with the translation patch, because I checked and encountered all of them in the official release, too: http://fwibby.16mb.com/Ah, would you want me to add that list of bugs note as a link in the Game Description sector of the relevant game here? Not sure if the moderators would allow that but it can be tried. I hope that someone can add that to the TCRF page.
I think that being able to see the credits is important, even if they're just in Japanese. The people that worked on this game deserve to have their names shown for their effort. As for translation, someone else already did that (http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/nes/b/goemongai1.htm). Note that the way their mock-ups look probably wouldn't be reproducible in the game, you'd have to make the text much smaller to get everything to fit properly.Well, I think that translated ending credits roll page could be very useful to add on as a link to the credits fix hack page, what do you think, rainponcho?
Maybe because the patch hosting would be external anyway. Or maybe everyone thinks PSP is still off limits. I'm just speculating of course.After what you said, yeah I couldn't see the fonts in that screen well. But of course the PPSSPP emulator's window can be blown up to read some of those fonts a bit better.
Re: the screenshots, I noticed that the fonts in the Mecha status screen (3rd one) look rather strange, but I can't produce a better one in PPSSPP in native res. It displays fine with 2x rendering res. Dunno if this is some bug or intentional.
the icon between the lightning and "P" on the skill icons is .... i dont know it's the default icon and i saw no reason to change it really. The "AT" was changed to "P" since the auto-skills was changed to passive skills so the icon was changed to reflect that, aside that, i left the skill icons alone.After taking a good, hard look at that '3-cross' icon, I think I now know what it may be. It's maybe supposed to be a 'stun' spell or maybe 'heal' magic. It probably indicates a person seeming to be unconscious or knocked out. Do you use it to stun enemies?
This is looking really good. Like the font you've chosen.
