The left and right speaker issue is a bit more complex. The program I use to edit may have full mixing capabilities, but recording software doesn't. I'll look into this in the future, but unlike the other two, there doesn't seem to be an easy solution to this problem. Manually overlaying the audio also presents issues.

I'm not sure what software you are using, but I know Garage Band has an easy button (edit: Looks like I was talking out of my ass.  It's not that easy in GB, but it is possible.  Just tested it for myself) for centering all voices in a Podcast, and I could only guess that other editing software would have similar features.  I'm not sure how this would work with your recording program, though.  If it's not doable, then I'd highly suggest you change your recording software.  Sadly, I think I won't be able to listen to another episode until this is solved.  It really put a lot of strain on my ears, and my commute to work is the only time I get to listen to the variety of podcasts I subscribe to, so I am limited to using earphones.  I'm not sure what everyone else out there uses when making their podcasts, but this is the only one of the seven I listen to that has this issue.  Good luck, though.  Really hoping it can be changed easily.

Edit:  Just to let you know, I was able to edit the file myself to get it sounding better.  I exported the mp3 twice, once with the balance all the way to the left, and once with the balance all the way to the right (mono sound for each case).  Then, I was able to import the files again back into my program, and voila, I had two channels both playing together and with balanced sound. I did all this on OSX using Garage Band and iTunes.  It took maybe 10 minutes tops.  The process is a little more detailed than I've let on, and I just left out specifics because I know few people here use Macs, so I didn't want to waste my time (assuming you are using Windows software).

@MisterJones:   Most likely the case!

After listening to the first one and a bit of the second, I had a few ideas for future episodes.  First, maybe you should look into adding some kind of intro/outro music to the files.  Most every podcast I listen to does this, and it seemed strange not having them in there.  Also, I would suggest not splitting the audio so that one person's voice comes out of the left speaker, and the other's comes out of the right speaker.  This makes the show really difficult to listen to when using earphones, especially when one person speaks for a long time, and I'm only hearing sound in my left ear.

I know that the show is brand-spanking new, and you've probably thought of the ideas I mentioned. Keep it up, though!  I look forward to hearing future shows!

Weird... I live in South Korea, so I guess I'm a ways away from the server, but that shouldn't account for too much of a difference.  It's definitely not on my end as everything else downloads super fast. Oh, well... I guess I'll just have to be patient. ;P

Very cool.  Looking forward to listening to these soon. Oh, and have you thought of publishing them to iTunes?

Edit:  I guess I mainly ask because I'm getting some super slow (for me) download speeds  42kb/sec :(

From last generation it was definitely the Nier soundtrack.  Though anything from Yasunori Mitsuda always gets me hooked., and Xenogears Myth (the orchestrated Xenogears album) still gets a ton of play in my MP3 player.

Edit:  Oh, and let me add this as one of my favorites in recent years http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yu9We0Ok98

Edit 2:  And this one... *sob* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvEXqjnuQww

I'm pretty sure Bongo` over at http://dynamic-designs.us is always looking for new translators ;)

I received the e-mail stating to update the existing file, which I found pretty vague.  Instead of having someone go through the whole submission process incorrectly, maybe some kind of mention could be made on the page to help people update files properly.

Site Talk / File Submissions (update requested)
« on: April 18, 2014, 03:04:13 am »
Hey,

Just wanted to request that someone include a note in the "Submit Files" - "Translation Guidelines" that mentions how updated files (translation updates, addenda) should NOT be the same name as the file on record.  I updated a zip of a translation which had the same name as the previous version and my submission was rejected.  I would have made sure this was avoided if mention of it had been made.

If it is mentioned somewhere, then I must have missed it when speed-reading through the long list of rules, and I'm sorry for bringing this up.

Thanks!

I use "Mantis". It was pretty easy to set up. At first it may look like overkill, but it is easily customizable so you can chop it down to something more to your liking.

Thanks for the tips Gideon!  My plan is actually quite similar to yours.  I'm reporting each new issue that pops up to our internal bug tracker so that I will have a permanent record of it.  I didn't think before to include who reported the bug, but I will definitely make mention of it in the readme when an update patch comes out. :)

11
@Malias:  Yeah, I think ChronoMoogle 's assessment is correct.  This definitely was something added/broken with our last bug fix.. *sigh* I was really hoping the bugs people found would be a little less prevalent.  Looks like that 1.01 patch will have to come a little earlier than I had hoped.

Edit:  Thanks again, we've already got it fixed :)  I'm not sure, though, if I should release a v1.01 patch right now or if we should wait a while in case more potential bugs arise.  I'm open to your thoughts.

@Darkmoon:  I believe that this is the "unhackable" game you're talking about.  The menus are ridiculous and required a TON of work.  I'm not surprised that so many passed on this game.  I think at times Bongo` probably regretted accepting this project ;)

@Dgdiniz:  Thanks for your kind words, and I'm sorry if I never got back to you via e-mail.  These days, so many e-mails that aren't top priority fly under my radar.  I'm so busy raising my daughter half the day and working the other half.  I wake up at 6:00 am most days and don't get to sleep until 12:00 am.  I only find the odd break here and there to sit down at the computer to work/play. It's a lame excuse, though, but I will say thanks for your interest and offer to help us out, even if it was only for a short time.  I know how time taxing real life can be!

If it makes you feel any better, it was toned down much more than say Feda.  Sad that you'd pass judgement without even trying the game :(

Got a quick one for you guys out there.  I have a pretty good idea of the meaning, but I just want to make certain.

; 取り戻してくるよ。

Big thanks!

Sadly, it's real... And yeah, it's for disposal.  Poor "useless" male chicks...  It makes me pretty sad to see so much life extinguished in a heartbeat.  Thankfully, I had the sense to look away before the machine was turned on :(

Are people actually starting to take NORTH Korea's threats seriously these days?  They spout out so much nonsense that there's no point now to start picking out tidbits you want to start believing as true.

Cockroaches, maybe... But really it's the smaller level insects that will survive a nuclear blast - anything with a smaller DNA chain or something.  Didn't I learn this on Mythbusters?

General Discussion / Re: Playing your own Hacks/Translations etc.
« on: November 18, 2013, 12:19:25 am »
As someone who deals mainly with the scripts and testing (and less with the actual hacking), I can say that I have never played one of our (D-D) releases after it has been made publicly available.  Those hundreds of hours I spent testing/editing/translating/etc. were enough. :)  It's kind of sad in a way, but I wipe my hands of the project once it's done.

Great pics Gid!  I'm really looking forward to this game as I just recently rediscovered the Ys series.  Good luck with the bugs and testing!
