Title: Panorama Cotton In English
Post by: Malias on October 09, 2018, 11:03:28 pm
After 10 years of working on and off translating Panorama Cotton, I finally have the game in a state where I feel comfortable releasing it!

Some screens:

Before, I do a full release, I'd like to have some people to beta test this thing to make sure everything is solid.  I've been working on this basically on my own and it would be good to have some honest feedback.  So, if you're interested, let me know.

I can give it a shot; let me know via PM. Shouldn't take too long at all just to test it, though from what I remember it has a few different endings, and it would be good to test them all. :)

And remember there's a special message in the ending if you get 1 million points.

Yeah, that special ending is totally worth it  ;)

I'd be glad to play through this one again, though getting the best ending is probably beyond my skill. Your work looks impressive from the pics!

Finally! Something that isn't a RPG! Look forward to this as I enjoyed the Japanese game.

I was just reminded of this JonTron video: https://youtu.be/6rIxWqcBk4M?t=229

Congrats on your translation.

Hi! I'm the guy who made the translation guide and walkthrough for this game on gamefaqs.com.  (https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/genesis/565488-panorama-cotton/faqs)

If you used my translation as a base, cool. If you didn't, that's cool too. I'm not particularly concerned with credit. However, if you did use my translation as a base, please allow me to look through your script. My Japanese has gotten WAY better in the 11 years since I made that guide...primarily because I've spent nearly all of that time living in Japan...and frankly, I'd be surprised if there wasn't something off in there. If your translation is original, I'd also be happy to give it a check if you'd like.

I know this game like the back of my hand, and would have zero trouble playing it through repeatedly on any difficulty. I've got an Everdrive to test it on real hardware, too.

PM me if you're interested! I'd love to help!

Wow, the man in person.  I didn't realize you hung out here.  PM sent!  I'd be more than happy to have your input.

Woo hoo! I freakin' love this game. Seriously, it's in my all-time top ten. It's exciting to see an English version coming together!

This is my first post, hello everyone.  I am very interested in this translation, I've been looking for a while now and this looks like the best prospect.

I imagine that this will be released as an ips patch or similar?

This looks like it'll be really good, thanks to the OP!

It should be an ips patch, very easy to use, and if you use a .bin rom, you can fix the checksum of the game if necessary

Can't wait to see this game fully translated, I'm looking forward to it, thanks again !

i'd like to have this patch, but i would patiently wait for the dubugging process to get a full release.

if it HAS been released can you stick a link to the full patch here?

sorry, i tried searching the database and if it is in there i couldn't find it (just the ps1 Cotton was all i found)

THANKS!

Sorry, my friend, I'm the one holding up the process. Malias is letting me do the final editing on the script, but this past month has been especially crazy; my wife just had another baby.

We're pretty much at the point where it's all silly nit-picky stuff anyway, but I do hope to keep polishing it just a little more.

Thanks for waiting!  :)

Congratulations!  :)

no worries at all dude, take all the time you guys need to get everything worked out.

i was just thinking it may be done already, that i was just too dumb to find it in the DB

this is a hella fun game, it's gonna be cool seeing it all translated!
