Translations: Silva Saga-II English Patch Complete!
« on: January 24, 2012, 03:24:04 am »

Update By: Draken

It looks like Dynamic Designs has gotten another release ready just in time for the New Year!  Er... Lunar New Year that is!

That wonderful little gem, Silva Saga-II, has now been totally translated and is ready for the public.  A great number of very talented folks came together to get this classic game done and out the door.  Countless numbers of hours were spent working hard to deliver a game with a beautifully polished script and look.

If you've been missing out on that great SNES RPG nostalgia, then check out the patch and head on over to the D-D!

We are happy to see many people were quietly waiting for this release
and that the dedication we put into it achieved the most important
result: spreading classic RPG greatness to everyone.

We at D-D will certainly deliver more quality releases
this year, so keep your eyes peeled!

I've been waiting quietly for this release ever since I helped one of your translators with the rom expansion work in Silva Saga One that was able to let the item names have long names without even having a 2 line item hack with expanded item boxes that took only 2 bytes to make bigger. I got recruited to help because I traced and debugged the code that loaded the shifted bytes that were the box sizes themselves. Thanks for the release. Also, I was not trying to brag.
Completed projects are Bloody Warriors and Shinsenden.

Nice!  I thought the first game was pretty good (although too easy), so this is going on my "to play" list.

Nice job on the release guys. This one was a long time coming. That's also one less game on my list I have to do. Looking forward to your next release as you've got some nice projects lined up. :thumbsup:

Yes, these will most likely be our next releases, and both are quite good games.

Its nice that you played the games in order, the continuity makes a lot more sense then.
Hope you enjoy it.

Quite true and we are happy to have helped it see the light of day.

I share that hope as well, the SNES was a gold mine of good RPGs.

Haa.  I assume that this bug is in the original game, but it's still amusing:

When you have mercenaries or idols fight a battle, you can cancel out with 'B' at any time.  This ends the turn immediately after whoever's acting at the moment completes their action -- not at the end of the turn, but the moment whoever is currently attacking finishes resolving their attack, denying everyone who hasn't acted yet their action for that turn.  It then takes you back to the input screen to select who acts in the next turn.  Simple, right?  This means that if you have a mercenary or idol who's faster than the enemy, you can have them attack forever without ever giving the enemy a turn, simply by starting their turn, then immediately canceling during their attack, then selecting them again...

Ah, here's a proper bug report for the translation:

It looks like an overrun.
I'm pretty sure I checked throughly for those,
but that one somehow got past my fine toothed comb.

Thanks for reporting it, will be fixed for the next revision.

Edit: The combat behavior you observed is most likely
a programming oversight in the original code.

J2E hm?
Those guys were great, I remember
playing their FF5 patch to death, it
was one of the few translated games
I knew of back then.

Hopefully we achieved a degree of quality
that would've made them proud.

RPGe did FF5.

j2e was probably best known for their FF4 translation.
They also did Violinist of Hameln, and Fire Emblem Gaiden (before it was well-known) :) (the original? Can't remember if Artemis' was a retranslation or a bugfix).
