GUNNM - Martian Memory - Translation
« on: July 01, 2019, 04:38:51 pm »
PSX game: GUNNM - Martian Memory
(aka Battle Angel Alita )

Hi there, ^Ripper here from rippersanime.info.
Since i made a "wanted ad" i should post the project here as well.

Well, we are currently working on translating this playstation game into English.
Work has started quite some time ago by me due to a suggestion of a user on my forum.
He was also working on the full translation of the game, but has since dissapeared.

After finding out the game COULD be patched i started to write the tools to do so.
For best results, i wrote them in PHP since that is the best way to re-write binary files anyway. *cough*
And here we are...








The main script editing tool:


The ePSXe emulator with a scene jumper program for testing translations imported into the ISO.


For demo's of all the tools please visit: https://forum.rippersanime.info/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1106

Currently the tools are mostly done and translation has begun.
Scripts can be extracted, modified and reinserted without problems.

Menu texts are still a bit of a pain because of the limited text space in the binary.
Still working on it, but due to lack of programming knowledge it is going slow.

Via the "wanted ad" page i got a response to aid in the translations.
So at this time the project has 1 translator.
However we are looking for more people interested in translating the in-game texts.

For more info on the project, our main forum is at https://forum.rippersanime.info/viewforum.php?f=10

I'm so hyped that anyone would be tackling this game but wow, the man himself! I used to frequent your site all the time. I just wish I had any connections to help signal boost this because I've been wanting to play it for a long, long time. Best of luck!!
