Sylvanians on a board was pretty dammed funny.

Post up at Nintendo Life, hope your work gets it's deserved attention. Great work. :thumbsup:
Thanks! Always fun to see your playthroughs and check out the comments. :)

Yeah, i'm gonna second this. The font is really hard to read. =\
Have you guys actually fired up the patch and tried it in-game?

I still standby my poser comment. You run the possibility of people wearing the title of "hacker" as a fashion statement, not because they had any earnest interest in the hobby or community, but because they want to seem cool like they were from The Matrix or something (potentially followed by condescending asshole behavior because they are hot shit now for being a "hacker").
Have you been on this site before? I'm pretty sure that's been a feature of the scene since the very beginning, and I daresay it continues now. Granted things got a bit better, but mostly because some people grew up, and some left. Which is still basically my point. Fresh blood seems like the last thing we should be wringing our hands about.

FYI: There is already a RHDN Twitter feed @RHDNTranslations, not to mention Spinner8's @surprise_news. I suspect the RHDN feed is not official, but that's my point. It's not like this isn't already out there. Perhaps it's easier to just leave all this up to others since they will do it anyway, but there's a risk of losing control of your own brand.

I have noticed that news posts may not have their own pages or permalinks, so perhaps there are some technical considerations around social media links and news posts?

I also don't think the "keep it secret, keep it safe" line of reasoning holds much weight. It's not like we're behind authentication like PCEngine FX forums.

The point is that if this is in fact a romhacking/translation hacking news site as well as a repository, it might make sense for the news posts here to be shared directly on Facebook, Twitter, etc... as opposed to largely via 3rd parties. Case in point, the latest released project I participated in was covered by several online news sites, one shared 59 times on Facebook, another 472.

If we want this site and community to stay relevant, I think encouraging people to use it as the their primary source of both news and patches makes a lot more sense than allowing 3rd parties to become folks primary sources.

As for whether social media buttons are necessary, I agree that folks can just copy paste a URL. However, it's odd in this day and age to see a news site that doesn't feature share buttons on its articles. If nothing else, it dates the site.

I'm not exactly hip with the social media, but I've started to get used to using share buttons for Twitter and Facebook. Any chance of adding those to the news posts/project pages?

Just want to say thanks for all the comments of support!

There's a minor spelling error on splash screen (Right before Banpresto Logo). It reads "Trasnlation" instead "Translation". Why you need that splash screen?

Considering fan translators/rom hackers volunteer their work, it's one of the few means of "compensation" we can get, ensuring that we are credited with the work we do. It's also a nice reminder that these things require a group of real people to happen and don't magically appear out of thin air. Thanks for the bug report btw.

Nothing against Harem Anime of the 90s, and early 2000s, but it sure led to the Eastern Industry's downfall by allowing Otakus taking over in this current generation, and using every cliche, annoying voice actors, and turning stories into Otakuness drivel.

90s Otakus had more class..
I believe we're talking about games, not anime?

Make no mistake, the quality or lack thereof of anime-based/ADV games on PS1 is your personal opinion. An opinion based as you admit on having "went through all the PS1 list of games", a process I assume didn't include playing any of the games with a knowledge of Japanese?

You're fully entitled to your list, and your opinion. However, don't presume to speak for anyone but yourself as to which games you feel are "good" games worthy of translation, and which ones are not.

all the rest was shovel-ware & Harem Anime (I'm not kidding on this)
And just who are you to denounce every romantic ADV game on two generations of consoles exactly?

Brut used to have a really effective clear gel type antiperspirant/deodorant, but of course they stopped making it, or at least I can find any. I switched to Right Guard Xtreme Defense 5 which seems to be as effective. I aim to use daily, at least always before leaving the house.

There's also Flat Beat by Mr Oizo despite putting out a few follow up albums and singles they all failed to chart.
I'd never heard of Mr. Oizo. Good stuff!

Butthole Surfers - Pepper

90's
Butthole surfers kick ass. I'm loath to think of them as a one hit wonder since they have had such a long career, but technically "Pepper" was their only mainstream break out hit.

I finally found the alternate version of Aisha (Death In Vegas). Probably too extreme for YouTube. :P https://vimeo.com/11291464

Not only is the video different, but the song is different too, just like I remembered. No guys on rocks though. :( Don't know where I got that from.

Haha - until I clicked the link, I thought you were talking about Iesha by Another Bad Creation.

Heh, reminds me of this I just stumbled across. :D https://youtu.be/HdVPZQR04lo

I think kids now must think that that's what rock music sounded like in the 90s. I guess that's sort of true of the late 90s, when all the rock bands had numbers in their names (eve 6, third eye blind, blink 182, matchbox 20...) and they were all bland, generic knockoffs of the great stuff that came through 5-10 years earlier.
It felt like the wave of authenticity that swept the early 90s was rapidly drowned out by a lot of overproduced garbage by the late 90s. There was still great music outside of the top 20, as there probably is now if you look for it (maybe, lol).

I don't have much to contribute for the other bands here, but as for a-ha, you might also recall "The Living Daylights" even if you didn't watch the movie.
I forgot about "Stay on These Roads" until just now, so there's another one for A-ha. https://youtu.be/nWey1DBAchM

EDIT: Here's a couple silly one-hit's from the 90's I always enjoyed.

Right Said Fred - I`m Too Sexy
https://youtu.be/21hmMqe9Phg

Green Jelly - Three Little Pigs
https://youtu.be/Gtffv9bpB-U

EDIT 2: Goddammit. Now I'm looking up old songs I remember. :P

I thought of "Aisha" but I swear I remember the song sounding a little different, and I remember a video with a guy on some rocks. Was there a cover, or a remix, or something? Do I just have a bad memory?

Cool to see Valkyrie no Densetsu. I worked on that game a long time ago, but lost steam when I learned there is technically an official localization on Namco Museum 5.

It was a pill to swallow, for sure. I'd never considered that my childhood dream of being a karateka would result in actually cancelling someone, but further study reveals that something as simple as hitting someone in the head hard enough to incapacitate them can result in a deadly concussion.
As soon as you train in martial arts, a punch isn't just a punch. Your fists are registered weapons.

I took karate for a few weeks. As soon as we started punching and deflecting with a partner, I realized it wasn't for me. :) I did a class in Capoeira from a friend which is pretty cool. It's very rhythmic, and good exercise. My thing is Tai-chi. I've taken classes on it a couple times, though I don't stick with it. Still, it's also good exercise and I like going through the motions. I did a combat Tai-chi class once too which was interesting but again, just not for me.

A translation patch is a derivative work, and taken ON ITS OWN, MAY enjoy some protections. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative_work

This is the reason why translations distibuted as pre-patched roms, or especially repros, are so problematic because they are clearly illegal.

Regardless of all that, there's no reason not to use your translated script from 2006, or Filler's script if he/she's ok with it, and not let your mostly done work go to waste.

You're welcome to use/modify the translation I made. http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,20556.msg301155.html#msg301155

Script Help and Language Discussion / Re: メデューン Medyun?
« on: May 01, 2016, 11:10:22 am »
Thanks to Draken and Bongo` I have some pictures. :)



Turns out Poseidon appears in this game, and there is a monster description for "Poseidon's retainer". I remember Medusa appearing in the enemy names, but there is no corresponding enemy I can find. The pallet swap for "Medeyun" is a "Death Mermaid".

Sounds totally made up to be. Might be a game-specific character. G.O.D., I presume?
Yep. :)

If you have a pic of that monster tho.
I'll see if I can get something.

Thanks for the links and input so far!

Script Help and Language Discussion / メデューン Medyun?
« on: April 28, 2016, 05:49:39 pm »
I've run across a monster name, メデューン which I'm having trouble finding anything concrete on. Here's a sample description

絶滅したはずだが、メデューンの力で化石から復活。
It should be extinct, but it was revived from a fossil using Medeyun's power.

I'm currently wondering if it's some Asian myth or deity. Any guesses?
