So... I dumped the script for this, and it's so small I'll probably have it done in a couple of days.

However! I think I have all the dialog text, but I can't find the menu, nor the English "data" text pictured below. :-[



I don't know why, but it doesn't appear to follow the encoding that the rest of the game uses, and has been resistant to all forms of relative searching I've thrown at it.

Would someone please track that down for me? At least the menu text. I'm not sure that the data text will need editing, it just seemed odd to me that I couldn't find it.

Ultimately, like with Miho Nakayama, I'm not going to be able to insert this myself as I'm not that skilled, so if anyone is interested in that portion of this project, please let me know!

EDIT 1:

I created this in Personal Projects, but it was moved around so let me know if I should make updates like this in PP, or just move it again.

So here's the title screen inserted into the game:



Only my second title screen. These are more fiddly than I expected, this one saving one blank 8x8 tile in the title graphic meant adjusting things slightly, but it seems to have come out okay.

EDIT 2:

Two fonts I'm considering currently. Font 1 is a Dragon Quest font from this site. The second is the serif font I was considering for Nakayama Miho (I think). As this is somewhat a DQ clone, I though the DQ font might be appropriate. The serif font however fits more closely with the original all-caps font. Thoughts?

I'm excited for this one. Thanks for going through the trouble of editing and translating the game.
As for the font, please NOT a font with serifs.  ;D

There are plenty of fonts to choose from. Personally, I like "I can remember (notices)", "Big Bird Hide and Seek" or "PCB Artist".

This one is also quite nice. As is this one. Lastly, if you must, must, must use a serifs font, use the CAPCOM one.

I'm feeling done with this and I want to move on to other things so here's the script package for Zoids - Battle of Central Continent (Zoids 中央大陸の戦い a.k.a Zoids Chuuou Tairiku no Tatakai)

Zoids - Battle of Central Continent Script Package

This currently has a patch with the serif font I inserted (Sorry releasethedogs! Anyone can add a different font if desired) and the title screen. See readme.html for details, but this has the fully translated script, table files, and notes. It's licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License, and is free for anyone to use in any way for non-commercial use, as long as this work is attributed to Filler.

If someone finishes this project I'm interested in being involved in the final script edit, but this is not necessary.
