The swap trick doesn't hurt the saturn like it does the ps1, because the second you apply any pressure to the spinning disc the motor cuts out. Whereas on the ps1 is tries to keep going and ends up wearing it out fast.

Yup, it's been played on real hardware and on SSF, which is the only emulator that can play it fully (and even then, only on certain settings).

Saturnman, head on over to Verve Fanworks and we'll hook you up with what you need.

That is awesome then. Don't mind tweaking  a emulators options to get it to play something. Lord knows I done it enough with the Dreamcast and the Wii ones enough. lol

Saturnman, I think I sent you a PM over at Verve. Either that or it's someone whose username says that they're you. It's happened before.  :D

Looks like there'll be a delay, as Sixfortyfive just found us again and feels inspired to tackle script quality issues. We totally welcome more feedback, even in general terms, from the wider translation community on this if anyone sees fit to give advice. I think the issues Six points out will sound very familiar to experienced translation teams. It would be interesting to see different philosophies on this too.

We still need re-dump everything that's been inserted so far for quick perusal, but our collection of preview videos should provide a quick impression of how the script is shaping up currently.

Oh man, I sent it to someone who literally registered under the username "Imthesaturnman."   :laugh:

Okay, re-sent! Hopefully to you this time!


If we can pick up some more translation help with remaining non-critical gameplay text and Six has enough time to do his planned fine-tuning of the script inserted so far, an extra wait of a few weeks will be well worth it. If those things fall through, however, it's as good as it's going to get until the project brings in more translators, and worth releasing now for the extra oxygen it will bring IMO. We'll keep y'all posted.

You certainly can, murphy! The Highland scenario is completely unclaimed, and we do have some straggling non-story dialogue (which would be good if you want to get your feet wet in something simpler first). Let me know which of these you'd be interested in tackling and I'll show you to the appropriate text dump!

Just to give everyone an update, Sixfortyfive and Sandslice are back in action (provided life doesn't swamp them again too quickly) and I want to give them some time to look over what's been completed so far, and suggest revisions to the script. In the meantime, everyone's free to grab the patches available for testers at Verve Fanworks. The project is currently in the state I planned to release originally; just hoping we can push it a little further now that things have changed.

Hi there,

I am trying to get a patched version of DragonForce 2 to work on my Saturn, but I can't burn it for a start.
I've applied the patch following the Readme file included in the patch archive.
I used IsoBuster 2.8.5 to create the Bin/Cue files.

Tried to burn with Fireburner, I got an error message and could burn it.
Tried to burn the BIN file without using the cue file. Didn't work either.
My patched file weighs 611 028 432 Bytes.
Do I need to modify the CUE file?
Which burning software should I use?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Raph

Ooh, I want a mount like that. 

Hey madmax and Validus, a formal patch release through RHDN is on the way -- pretty embarrassing that I'm just over a year late on pushing it through the door after all the help we got translating the menus here last summer. At least we got lots of testing in in the meantime. I'm literally waiting for some new preview footage to upload as I type this, then it's on to making a better readme and doing one last pass for bug fixes. Should be this month at any rate.

Unfortunately the project as a whole is still very much unfinished. The majority of gameplay elements are in English, but the story dialogue still isn't included. This is as good as we can get it for now. I'm hoping a patch release, such as it is, will draw enough attention to get some more translators interested in coming on board.

I'm hoping more translators are willing to come on board because this is one game I'm really excited about.
