Utilities: Xenogears translation tools released!
« on: September 01, 2007, 07:12:42 am »
Update By: Sephiroth 1311

Ciao a tutti, people at Romhacking.net!
We’ve just relesed the tools we used to translate Xenogears.
With them, you’ll be able to retranslate the game from Japanese into a new English translation, or, of course, from English to your native language. :)
You can find them in the “Utilities” section here at Romhacking.net, or at our website, in our Xenogears translation page.
Just make sure to read the (long :P ) user’s guide included in the package.

We hope to see many translation projects in the future: Xenogears really deserves to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. ;)

Let the Xeno-translation(s) begin!

Sephiroth 1311, on behalf of SadNES cITy Translation

This is pretty big news, IMO. Xenogears has been crying out for a retranslation--hell, a total rewrite of the English script--for a variety of reasons.

Still won't make it better than Xenosaga, though...

I'd play through it again (for the umpteenth time).  I loved the series!

Sephiroth 1311, some days ago I began to code an editor to translate the SadNES cITy Xenogears Scripts from English to Spanish, fixing some things with the Japanese game too. (Do you remember Magimaster_2? -> He is translating the scripts since some months ago...)

This is a screenshot of the editor:

Click here please


I want to release my editor too, but it is not finished yet. There is a preliminary version. (It doesn't allow export the translated script)

Run the "run_me.bat" file to register the dinamic library (sqlite3.dll) or run the following command:

@regsvr32 /s sqlite3.dll

In these days I will be publishing the final version.  :crazy:

Good, but there are two things that don't feel right... ;)

First of all, the ¡ doesn't seem right... seems more a Ì

Then, try to center the opening text... if you have problems, you can use our file (I changed the X and Y position of all the text, since ours was way longer...). ;)

Of course, we were testing only. ^^ All those things will be fixed.  ;)

Thank you for your suggestions friend.  :beer:
