I guess they were already talking about the translated version (which got released a few days ago on PSCave website), so I also added it on Romhacking.net
I also feel like this topic was kind of a sneaky way of announcing that the beta translation is done.
The Gen1 remake I dislike a lot for some of the cheaper ways difficulty got increased. I believe some of the later bosses are literally impossible without certain remake-specific gameplay tricks that I really hated (good god the black dragon...). TBH, if you're redoing the translation viv, I'd almost be tempted to replay it
Eh, not exactly completely redoing
it. Keep in mind that I'm not a translator. I am kind of giving it the old Project II treatment though, but on a much lesser scale. Kyence's actual writing and translation were fine. But I'm updating some lines to make more sense, clarify certain pieces of text, making sure there's no spillover issues, expanding abbreviations, bringing in the old spell names, etc. Tryphon is also being an outright saint and compiling the ISO, making sure the new hacks work for his custom routines. I'm doing pretty much all testing, though. He does his own tests as needed to check his new hacks, but I'm the one playing through the game.
I'm honestly not really looking forward to the beta test. Although it'll be much more relaxed than the alpha, a part of me just wants this done and out.
With any luck, it'll be done before December is out. You can check my progress as SandyLandale here
