For that matter, the font in that link is so small I can't even read more than a little bit of it.

Like, I can't tell if it's talking about drawn stuff or live action stuff. That detail changes the conversation massively

Incidentally, folks, before we go down the blame game lane, do remember that real human beings worked on these games. Guy at a forum I go to was one of the folks who localized the game, and got reamed for it on various places once his involvement was discovered. Up to and including threats to his safety. For obvious reasons, I won't type out his handle/s.

It's a fucking video game, folks. bad translations are part of why our community exists, but please, don't go fucking nuts.

I'd be fine with the XP and gold doubled to match the GBA version. The SNES version is a bit grindy. Removing that would be rather nice.

The story seems to be on the greenlight page

But, the English is so awkward it causes... issues. Let's use that word charitably. :)


Anyway, as for the balancing, I seem to recall that in FM3, close range let you fuck things up massively.

Even better, there are 8-10% fees from Indiegogo/Paypal/credit card processors. In the best case scenario of meeting their funding (the absolute minimum they should be aiming for), their take-home would be $54,600. That leaves:

Development – $32,760 (?!)
BGM – $16,380
Localization – $5,460

Now, I don't know a whole lot about PC game development or music, so I can't comment there... but $5,460 to translate a game of this scale? I assume there is absolutely ZERO plot if they expect any translators to bid on that. At first, I thought that the price was insulting as it is, but then I read that they plan on a worldwide release. That means that this isn't just one localization, but several localizations all need to be done from the same paltry sum.

The game looks fun, but for the money they're asking for.. yeah, this is a train-wreck waiting to happen. Especially if they didn't even factor in the cost of their incentives into their budget.

TBH, the game looks amazing.

I just think that their crowdfunding campaign is... charitably, I think the proper word here is, described as amateur hour shenanigans.

I get the feeling it will fail, even if they get all the money they need and then some, and it will be their fault.

Gaming Discussion / Re: How would you improve Sonic the Hedgehog?
« on: February 26, 2016, 02:08:40 pm »
My honest opinion is they need to stop making Sonic games where the idea is to do as many things possible as to make you wait.

Sonic 2, one of my favorite sonic games, is full of 'em. The entire point of Metropolis Zone seems to be to make you wait.

Well, fuck me running.

Just to put everyone's mind a bit more at ease.  It seems what happened here is that we used revision 1.0 of the rom.  The main one floating around on the net is revision 1.1.  However, I've done some pretty extensive testing and the translation works just fine with revision 1.1 of the rom.  So, feel free to use that version and the IPS patch or our xdelta and turn off CRC checking.  From my testing so far, the game should play without issues.  If you do happen to encounter any, please let us know.

I'd recommend updating the ROM info to reflect that there's a 1.1 and you used 1.0

Okay so looking at that, if you scroll down, you find this:

This is their approximate budget for the 60K they're looking for.

Notice it does not include the various rewards.

I, uh, see this going down in smoke and flares.

I'm trying out the game.. does the game have this inherent scrolling issues? I tried it on virtuaNES and FCEUX.

Try Nestopia and puNES.

hmm, I might be remembering wrong, but I had recall it was during a period where I was not a staff member, but a mod...

Hmm. Maybe it was jus ta forum topic and not submitted to the site then?

there has been dick nazi hacks ever since rom hacking has been a thing.

Well, yeah. I was referring to a specific series of rom hacks named Dick Nazis, though.

Yes, but there wasn't any(or so few) until quite recently.

You would be incorrect. There was a period of time where they were not submitted as frequently, but we hve gotten a lot of them in the past. The first dick nazis came out in like 2009, well before the first half of the site's life.

Was there at least a poll with other forum members to discuss this quite controversial point ?

Edit : note I didn't say I was against it.

They've been allowed since the site went up.
