Flying Hero (SFC)
« on: May 27, 2011, 01:15:51 am »
Anybody interested in translating screenshots for this SFC cute-em-up?
Here I've got a total of 13 screens, including the intro and the ending to Easy Mode.
(my suspicion is that the text is probably stored in tilemaps, I've already made the graphics compression tools)
http://kingmike.emuxhaven.net/Misc/Flyhero-easy.zip
There's probably another ending for Hard Mode. And I'll just use an infinite lives PAR code to get that one, later.
(I mean, this game seems nice and fun, but then you reach Act 5 and, even on easy, it'll feel like a nice kick in the nuts without cheating)

Thanks.

Flyhero_00000 - Bugyuru and Pao chan got on well (Or "Were freinds" or "Liked each other")
Flyhero_00001 - But they sometimes fought
Flyhero_00002 - And on that day they started fighting over nothing
Flyhero_00003 - "Will she forgive me if I say sorry..." (or "I wonder if I say sorry will she forgive me...")
Flyhero_00004 - "Ahahahahaha"
Flyhero_00005 - "Help meee!"
Flyhero_00006 - "Pao chan!"
Flyhero_00007 - "To late! Pao chan has already been eaten!" (Or something like "Too late! I have already eaten Paochan")
Flyhero_00008 - "Pao chan!"
Flyhero_00009 - "Bugyuru! Thank you! It was really dark and scary inside his tummy. I was crying lots"
Flyhero_00010 - Pao "Hey, we will probably fight again but"
Flyhero_00011 - Pao "When that happens let's make up Ok.
Flyhero_00012 - Bugyuru "ok!"
Flyhero_00013 - Easy Mode (below that) score (next to that ) End (or Fin, Game Over or whatever)

So I take it the game itself is made out of sugar and wrapped in candy floss?

Thanks.

And here's the ending on Hard.
Yep, cute game. And it will probably bring anyone who tries to finish it on hard mode to tears.
It's safe to say I'll probably never be able to do it without cheating.

Even if it looks like the extra ending is just the credits scene. If it's hard to see, I can post an SNES9X savestate.

I should've posted these before, but any ideas on the level names?


1:Bugyuru's Adventure Begins!

4:Go! Battle in the sea!

5:Clash in the block castle!


Here I'm posting the hard ending savestate, if anyone wants to try to translate the credits. I used SNES9x Geiger's Tracer.

Hope this looks okay.
I hope this game gives me a reason to draw an intentionally rushed handwriting-esque, but hopefully readable font. :)
(a little hard to make it look handwritten and readable when you're limited to 8x16 pixels)



The text is stored as compressed tilemaps, and I'm getting a feeling I'll need the extra space left over from replacing the Japanese font, so I thought I'd ask about the font first.

No offense KingMike, but that font looks horrible. I can barely make out letters.

The font we used in the Live-A-Live 2.0 patch for the prehistoric chapter might be what you want:



You'll have to ask Gid for the font, because I don't think I have that one in my files.  :huh:

Is it just some that are a problem? I could touch those up.

Or I suppose I could check if the LAL font would work, possibly need some adjustments as it's VWF, right?
I think I'd be limited to a fixed width.

Personally, I don't like stylized fonts that compromise readability with their styling. I believe that is the criticism here. You haven't given us any sample screens with some sample sentences, but I think your capital letters look OK for readability. It's the lowercase that is the issue. Maybe c,d,e,g,l,n are some of the worse offenders. Also, if shouldn't letters like g and q and p have the same basic style direction? The same for b and d.

I think that's what throws it off. You have like-letters that have contrasting styling.

Remember I'm typically labeled as artistically deficient, so take anything I say very lightly on the matter. :)

I don't think it's that unreadable, myself. The only one that is is the "e".

I don't think the font looks terrible. It's okay, but if the game is as cute as you said it was then perhaps something more cute and bubbly would be more appropriate.

A bit of cleanup to make the characters a bit more uniform, though not completely as to not break the handwriting look.
Taken from my tile editor. The first is at 2x (which is probably more likely what you'd see in an emulator, the second at actual size.

I think that's a big improvement. :) Much more readable for me. The only letter that seems off now is the 'w'.

Curious about the Continue prompt.

する!! and "しない..."

I'm thinking maybe options like "YEAH!!" and "Nah."?

Literally is "do" and "don't" but you could have more fun.  I like "Do it!" and "No way..."

Alright, using Google as well looking at looking at JWPCE and referencing GameFAQs credits on other Sting and Sofel games, I've been able to find translations of all but one of the names in the credits.
Will we ever know who created Byuguruu?

(as well as using JWPCE and Microsoft Global IME to transcribe the credits, but if I made a mistake, here is a video I recorded of the ending sequence)

Here are a couple of nice faux handwritten style fonts you might like:
