Assistance with a few sentences from a manual.
« on: February 16, 2016, 09:58:45 pm »
I always hate to ask this since I feel like I'm being needy, but I would appreciate any help here. Each one of a small part of the manual that I'm trying to figure out about the game to play it better, For a higher score. I have a general idea of what it says based on logical gameplay, but I'd like to know more. It's really fun.

Main Character Screen

I know the words in the black capsules, but the specific item meanings would be helpful, and of course the Special at the end.

Here, your character has a nickname, that if you catch the letters, you'll earn points I think. If you're playing two players, the name changes and you'll have to score points with a new nickname. Also, if you choose the wrong letters, you'll lose any letters you've scored.

There appears to be a Rank structure in the game that when you hit a certain point, you'll get a new rank.

Merit bonus~ a special bonus

Just a small comment, but I'd probably recommend something close to "Medal Bonus" or "Commendation Bonus," since merit bonus sounds closer to a salary increase, and these are meant to be in reference to the military medals of honor (like the purple heart, etc.) given to soldiers for their service.

Thank you to both of you. I appreciate the assistance. If I can ever be of service, let me know.

Edit: Any chance either one of you could help with the last one? The one with the rank structure? Thanks again.

Functionality for Evaluating Results
After getting a game-over, you are given one of 30 ranks based on the US-military depending on the how the player played the game and their skill.
(the details of the calculation are shown on screen, though the calculation method is a secret)

Literal translation, but that's what it says!

Thanks, have you ever done any translation work for any games on RH.net? I see your profile didn't show any. Just curious.

On the site, nope! Got a few projects (Dice de Chocobo for GBA, a re-translation of Legend of the Mystical Ninja, etc.) on my hard drive that I'm slowly picking away at, but most of my work is professional and fan manga translation and other translation stuff that'd bore most people to death.  :P
