Quote from: Chicken Knife on March 27, 2021, 07:31:03 AMI was asking for a way to revert it for me personally, not for you to prefer it. But if that's an issue for whatever reason, I understand.
Quote from: vivify93 on March 06, 2021, 12:26:55 PMActually1. Rebecca and Peaches' retranslation is closer to the original Japanese script. 90% of PSIII's English localized script is made up.2. The tech names weren't changed according to Rebecca and Peaches' whims; the non-combat techs actually do have weird and random names in Japanese. Rebecca notes this on her website. http://www.sceneryrecalled.com/trans/ps3item.txtI have actually made an addendum of their PSIII retranslation that renames the techs to align with PSII and IV, if you're interested? I do heavily recommend the retranslation over the made-up official localization.I would also like to take this opportunity to make a general statement to please not put down others' projects in order to uplift mine. Of course nothing is above criticism, even free labor projects like this. I know I've made my own fair share of criticisms, but it's in poor taste to entirely shut down others' projects. (Even when I criticized Bishoujo Senshi Translations' take on Sailor Moon RPG, I still noted the positives.)
Quote from: mikeprichard on May 23, 2021, 10:29:11 PMvivify93 - I'm just coming back to PSIV after many, many years, and am greatly enjoying your ReConstruct hack; thanks so much for sharing this! I do have a question for you or another expert on the forum. I'd like to edit the ReConstruct version of the rom just to change the Technique and Skill names to some personal preferences (e.g. Foi > Fire 1, Gires > Cure 2, etc.), and I think, given the disassembly for the ReConstruct rom, I'd be able to do this by editing only the associated "TechniqueNames" and "SkillNames" values in the ps4.asm file according to the guide at https://www.romhacking.net/documents/830/. However, I have no idea how to create the ReConstruct rom disassembly package in the first place. Would you or another expert please be able to provide a disassembly of the ReConstruct rom, or detailed instructions? Thanks very much!
QuoteRules of Thumb:General community ethics suggest the following rules of thumb. While not official rules you will be penalized for, repeated failure to act appropriately will likely cause your peers to report you for a rule 1 violation.[...] It is never a good idea to request someone else do work for you. That includes asking for someone to make a utility, do a translation, write a document etc.
Quote from: Spooniest on June 02, 2021, 12:10:11 AMI would say, if you are really that jazzed about the idea of having Simple English Names for Spells/Techs in PS4, then you might consider taking the time to sit down and try to figure out how to do it yourself. As I have come to understand it in my years on the site, if someone doesn't wish to fulfill your request, then they are under no obligation to fulfill it, or even respond to it.We do this (mod games) because we have an idea in our head that we want to make. Some modders like taking requests, some don't, and some can go back and forth on it, but as the Forum Rules of Thumb state, it's frowned upon to simply ask someone to do a large amount of work for you, regardless of any other circumstances in play.
Quote from: Spooniest on June 11, 2021, 05:45:39 PMIf I was gonna do my own Phantasy Star II mod, I'd want to do something about two issues; the battle backgrounds and the lack of any dialogue from the side characters, but I don't think I would want to. Those are issues that the game devs themselves would have needed to fix, and I feel I would be venturing too far into fanfic mode, to write actual new dialogues.But FF6-9 actually have a system for injecting dialogue based on which characters are in your party at the time, and to me, that doesn't seem so hard as long as you have a large enough text bank to fit all the text, and a system for setting flags for who is and is not in the party. Then it's just a matter of knowing when to point what lines of dialogue where.But, like I said, I wouldn't want to do a project like that, because that's going way overboard in terms of attempting to read the authors' intent rather than simply edit the story. I'unno. I would feel like I was engaging in (as Tolkien put it) "purposed domination of the will of the author over the mind of the reader." (Tolkien was addressing the question of whether LotR was an allegory.)... I'm sorry, I've forgotten where I was going with this.
Quote from: vivify93 on July 20, 2021, 11:50:15 AMi had one planned but it's been on the backburner for a few years. i basically have to rewrite the entire script since bofii's translation is so poor.
Quote from: vivify93 on July 22, 2021, 02:27:53 PMoh no i was going to work off the gba version. it was going to be mostly original. it's just tedious when i'm whacking away only in hex
