Quote from: gnome_chomski on September 01, 2022, 12:18:11 PMThank you (and everyone else who contributed) for your work on this re-translation. I know for a lot of us who were around during the early days of romhacking, Magic Knight Rayearth was one of the first JP-only games we got to play fan-translated into English. So, it feels very meaningful to get a refurbished and re-translated version more than two decades later. Looking forward to the next playthrough!
Quote from: Reiska on September 03, 2022, 02:36:32 PMAnyway the SRW official translations (for T and 30) follow most of the same choices you did; they use "Alcyone", "Cephiro" with a "ph", "Lafarga" instead of "Rafaga", "Windam" instead of "Windom", and "Rune God" over "Mashin" in most cases (there's a few diversions in SRW 30's case because the similarity between "Mashin" and "Mazin"/"Majin" (Mazinger) is invoked as a plot point. They went with Selece for Umi's Rune God, although I agree with you that it's almost certainly *supposed* to be Ceres, and they spelled Inouva without the "u" (SRW's house style for their official localizations is *generally* to drop long vowels, but it doesn't stick to this universally, particularly when the official localizations of the source material consistently do otherwise - i.e. SRW still uses "Hououji" for Fuu's last name even though it consistently renders the Mazinger protagonist as "Koji" rather than "Kouji")
Quote from: Special on September 03, 2022, 05:43:33 PMLooks like things have been much improved over the original, so good job and congrats on the release!I played a bit and aside from the patch version number appearing in the Settings menu (I always hate this sort of thing, to me these are immersive breaking), and maybe a few lines that seem like an odd phrase one would say, for example when Zagato goes "best to nip problems in the bud" vs. "pests should be taken care of", but those are just personal preferences... Other then that though, I haven't found anything technical that are issues. So again, good job.
Quote from: mziab on September 04, 2022, 05:33:56 AMI get what you're saying about the immersion breaking. That's precisely why I didn't add a splash screen or plaster my name on the title screen. The version number was a last-minute thing. It's more there for future-proofing, really. Supposing there might be a bugfix release in the future, having a simple way to make sure people are on the latest version is a nice thing to have. And the settings menu seemed like the least obtrusive place to put it, since you barely even see it during normal gameplay. I guess I could consider removing it if more people think it's out of place.Having Zagato use that particular idiom felt right and in line with his charismatic, eloquent overlord persona. Zagato, Clef and to some extent Inouva are specifically written to sound elegant and proud, as they do in the original game. I used fancier phrasing for them without straying from the original Japanese, basically. But I'm always open to constructive feedback, so if anything sounds off, do not hesitate to let me know. A fresh perspective is usually a good thing.
Quote from: Special on September 04, 2022, 06:34:13 AMAbout the line, I have not played this game before, I was only looking at it from a fresh perspective, I was assuming this Zagato guy is the main evil villain of the game, he certainly looks the type, "nip in the bud" to me just doesn't sound like something your typical power crazed/hungry/out to destroy/conquer the world villain would say, especially one that wants some "children" taken care of... but again I don't know enough about this guy, maybe he's not even the bad guy here, or maybe he just like gardening, so the phrase fits.
Quote from: Felipefpl on September 05, 2022, 01:01:38 PMI didnt play the game but i must say the new font is one of the most beautiful i ever seen (much better than the one from RPGe), all RPG games should use it. Kongrats for the re-translation and the new font.
QuoteIt's been a month and some oversights have been brought to my attention, so I'm releasing a minor update. Nothing much, just fixing a few typos and rephrasing a line or two. You can download the patch here.
