Some people even want to go as far as to leave honorifics intact. :laugh:

I probably have no place in this discussion, seeing as I don't speak a lick of Japanese, but...
HONORIFICS MAKE ME RAGE HARD. And I'm glad I haven't seen any in this translation. It's always something that worries me. It's something I have no way to relate to and random interjections of -san -sama, etc. seem out of place in an english script.

Another thing that bugs me is when i see stuff like, let's just say Jack and Sarah are having a conversation about a particular personality quick that Sarah possesses:

Sarah: *does quirky thing*
Jack, to sarah: "Oh I love it when Sarah does that quirky thing! Sarah is delightful!"
Sarah, to Jack: "And Jack is a pervert!"

Talking to one another as though they were talking about each other to an invisble 3rd party. Like it never occurs to the translator/writer to use "you".

I just figured I'd take this opportunity to get that off my chest.

I'm playing it right now and i ahve to say it's pretty good. It's not *perfect* but i'm glad that somebody had the gumption to finish it.

that being said, i *am*  a big fan of gid's stuff (a silent one mostly. I'm a member of the forums there but i haven't posted much since i started here :P)  But i won't complain. whichever patch I like better, that's naturally the one i'll use.

Now commenting on the general attitude/reception to this:

serisouly poeple, are you trying to discourage? let the patch a chance on it's own merits. it *might* actually be good! (it is.)

Corsair is the title I usually run by, But my given name is Brian.
I love old schoolin' games, and this manifests most visibly in the form of pixelart. I am an artist of mediocre
talent (but hey, i'm trying!) and a writer of some caliber. What caliber that actually is? no idea.
My right brain appears to be my dominant hemisphere.

anyways, i've been mooching off the community for some time now and thought i'd participate a little more in it.

I started getting into emulation about 7 (almost 8) years ago so i'm pretty handy with most things, and learned just about everything i know abou computers because of it.
I'm not naturally a technically oriented peson, but it's amazing what nostalgia can do for your learning processes.

Generally pretty laid back and easygoing unless you've managed to offend me (which isn't an easy thing to do.) or the topic is something i'm very passionate about (again. not a whole lot)

So i guess i'm kind of a bum, and i' going to use this frum as my new park bench to sleep on and mumble to passers by some little nuggets of nonsense.
