Romancing SaGa 2 Translation
« on: October 27, 2007, 05:37:49 pm »
I've recently become a bit of a fan of the Saga games and have been gradually collecting them. Naturally I downloaded the ROMs of those that were only released in Japan (RS 2 & 3), but I couldn't find a translation for RS2. I did some more digging and noticed that Aeon Genesis was doing a translation of it, and now am basically wondering how that's coming. Once it's translated, that means that all 9 SaGa games will be playable in English...which seems important.
See ya later.

It's stalled until someone offers to translate the script.

Well, if someone hasn't picked it up two years from now, I may be able to help then. Hopefully someone will, I really want to see this game.
See ya later.

Unless you know Japanese, I'm afraid I can't use you. That's really all I need - someone who can translate the script.

Actually, the game looks kind of interesting.  Got a script sample, Gideon?

Check your privmsgs.

Unfortunately, due to the whack-ass way the game deals with its dictionary, such strings are *not* in the dump. They're mostly dialect suffixes, though.

Trust me, compared to the hell lovely time I had with the Ancient Magic control codes, this shouldn't be a problem.

this hurts badly :( when i noticed this topic i tought that some new and good news were coming along... i guess i'll just have to stay, wait and hope :D

by the way i even proposed a fund-raising for this project but nobody's interested to take it even for pay :P

well i guess that the games yet to be translated are not so much now... so RS2 will get his change someday

what are you talking about this IS good news, she's actually considering translating it. That's good news in my book.

It might not be "oh hell yeah I'm translating this RIGHT NOW, see you in 3 weeks, COMPLETED PATCH", but some interest is still good news if you're even vaguely optimistic.

I know I'm going to feel really stupid for asking this, but what other game translations have you worked on? I can't remember them right now.

She's just a translator (that is, if you assumed by "translating this game" she meant she'd be doing the hacking, not saying that "Oh, she's just a translator." Translators are the most important part!). She's working with Gideon.

I've seen her do various little translations here and there, but I'm pretty sure the only person I've seen her work with alot is Gideon. I could be wrong.
