Hi everyone. Thanks to all of the people interested in this project.

I haven't been able to make much progress on RAH lately due to an overwhelming amount of (positive) obligations IRL. I'd like to do the editing myself so I can claim the translation of the text as 100% my own if possible (it's a personal challenge). However, if enough time passes and I still haven't had time or motivation to sit down and work on it, I'll probably hand the project off to anybody here who might be interested in finishing it.

Just for the record, the translation is 100% done and about 10% checked/edited. The only other things that need to be done are (a) some graphics editing and (b) some hacking of the system text display routines.

Cheers, to you Paul!   :beer:

I tried my own hand at working on the translation side of RAH about 6 years ago. Probably best that project never quite got far enough to see the light of day...

I'm sure fans will be pleased with all your hard work, best of luck.

Thanks for the words of support, you guys.

Due to stubbornness I've decided not to hand the project off to anybody else just yet. I've got a long summer break coming up soon, so I'm hoping to take some time to finish editing the script.

Haven't given up. :-)

Nomination for best original translation from a previously unworked on IP? It gets my vote.

Bump! Sorry guys but i need to inform people to whoever is playing this game and will want to know how to save their progress, here's how:

First, after the guy who talks to you (after intro) gives you the package or something go up stairs.

August 07, 2012, 08:36:46 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
Second, go to your computer where is next to the bed and Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and then open up your menu then go to the ''use''  option then enter the first option via (pick an item you wanna use) menu then choose the item that there on the list.

August 07, 2012, 09:24:16 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
Third aka conclusion, one you use that item a long description of text will imence then after its done you now finally can access your computer by choosing ''Talk'' on menu than now choose the first option and now you can save your progress everytime!

Hi guys. Thanks for the interest in the project.

I'm in the editing phase right now. I've gone through about 30% of the script so far. I don't know when it'll be done, but hopefully soon.

As always, best of luck, kind sir.

I don't think I've been this excited for a patch since Mother 3 or Policenauts.

I've always wondered why we've never got this localised back in the day or rereleased to a Sega Genesis Collection instead of the same said games we've played "thousands" of times already? jeez lol
