Just to clarify, I think it's Dark Lord that's about to enter beta testing, not Dark Law, which was in a pretty sorry state when I handed it over after years of bitrot.

Am I the only one that finds the fact that Tactics Ogre is being translated by somebody bignamed in the translation world funny?

edit: I'm not insulting Gideon or naytihng... I just find it ironic that one of the most hated games in the game translation world or whatever you want to call it is being worked on by one of the most liked guys in the translation whatever you want to call it.

He isn't translating it.  All he is doing is inserting the PSX script into the SFC version, doing a bit of ASM work to make sure it all works and that's it.
It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious.

Yep. Haven't even spent that long on it. The current build is the result of about three days' combined work.

Err... that's what I meant. I forgot to say it. I tend to use the words translate for everything dealing with the whole process... ROM hacking, inserting, etc. I picked it up back when I was a n00b reading stuff at Zophar.... :-[ hard habit ot break.

>.>

still, I think my point stands. the whole thing is ironic and stuff.

what's ironic about it? you make it sound like we're an organized collective. gideon does his own thing, which in this case it working on a game several others have refused to look at. what's ironic about that?

perhaps slightly rebelious, but "ironic"? not really.

the irony is it's one of the most hated games in the translation/romhacking community(I guess that's the best way to put it) being worked on by one fo the most liked guys in the translation/romhackign community.

Of course, I could be wrogn here.

i also notice that nobody is saying anythign alogn the liens of "Wow, this is completely useless, why are you doing it?" Those words tend to follow anybody announcing they're working on the game...

Wow, great news Gideon. Lots of games I can't wait to play.
You're amazing, tackling all those games. And that novel.
I'm never going to have quite the... energy, I guess, can't think of the word. (I'm falling behind in the other 3x3 Eyes game, I know. Gotta fix a few bugs related to using a VWF where the game expected tilemapped font) Still going to work on that later. Need to wrap up a few more webpages myself.)

A few minor nitpicks. 3x3 Eyes I think was published by Banpresto, and Snoopy Concert ("Carnival"?) by Nintendo. And Esper Dream 2's last image is missing.

Finally someone comes out of the closet with Snoopy Concert. I kept hearing someone had a translated script for, like, 2 years and nothing was ever said about the game ANY WHERE.

Nice work, Gid.
