I heard that Lina`chan passed away; she was apparently killed in a car accident.

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.netI 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 itEh, 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.
You do realize that someone posted that exact same patch just a few posts before you, don't you?No, I did not, or else I wouldn't have posted it.
I will defend P3 and 4--well, I liked them at least. I never went back to play 1 and 2, partially because Persona, regardless of the game, is LONG, and I didn't want to have to track down physical copies of really inferior versions of the game (especially US P1--good god I don't know what they thought was so wrong with all the characters!). Are there even PS1 ISOs for less awful English versions? I would honestly play fixed versions of the US editions, but I don't know if anyones hacked those, and I'm not buying a PSP.Being quite honest here, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment's worst aspects are its voice acting (Most of the actors are union veterans by now.) and the fact that it kept the Revelations: Persona names. Persona 2: Innocent Sin was never brought over, so you'd have to use Gemini's translation for it.
