Heroine Anthem 1 & 2 English Translation
« on: January 26, 2013, 05:56:26 pm »
I remember back in 2006 D AKA Derrick Sobodash worked on Heroine Anthem and eventually gave up
due to problems it cause for his computer.

But you know after so many years with no english translation available, I think I try to continue what he
left behind. So far I did a few tests using the tools he left behind, good thing they still can be found
this site or else I would have nothing to show.

Video number 2 Shows early areas of the game and the current state of the patch.

The script is all dump, but its unorganized and hard to make out which is which in chronicle order. So
I am mostly translating parts at random. If everyone that wants to help out feel free to join.

That game is so beautiful. Far better looking than most of the 3D stuff we have today. There is no substitute for hand drawn art. I wish you well on your translation.

I really wish I could help with this, but I don't know a lick of Chinese.  I'll try and edit any English files though, if you feel it would help.

edit: In order to assist with editing (again, if you want help with it), could you post just the .txt files you've already translated?

Someone was actually working on translating this or maybe it was the first game, but he lost everything in a HD crash. Btw, the tools work with the first game as well.

@Penny

Yes everything is using the same translation tools left from the previous translation. So I am kind of limited to whatever
to those tools can do.


Anyways here is the finished files.
http://www.2shared.com/file/NOdnoLgt/Finish.html

And here are the incomplete files or partially translated.

Its kind of hard to work on these files when they don't go in chronicle order from the events making it difficult to understand the context.

I just want to bump this thread, cause I added a new patch that translate more text.

But I stumble to a little block and I want to get it fix, but I can't get a hold of D.

For example there's an area that has 2 scripts files for that one area, if I translate the first file then there will be a bug and the game will crash also that area will be left untranslated. Leaving the first file unmodifed and If i translate with file 2, the area will be translated, but after going to the next event scene and everything and going back it will go back to loading file 1. So I wonder how do I modified file 1 without bugs.

Try asking here? http://www.elsallia.com/bbs/  He posts infrequently, but I do know he comes by every now and then.  You can also PM Moon Knight there, who still has regular contact with him.

Part 1 has not been finished. I just skip to the 2nd game because the 2nd game is much better.

I probably will go back finishing the first game after Heroine Anthem 2 is finish. Because the first game is very short compare to the 2nd one. The length of the first game is only like like 20% of the 2nd game.

I once was working on this game, hoping to do a surprise release. Translated a ton of the scripts, though I never kept count so I don't really know how much I had done. It all ended up lost in an HD reformat, so it's long gone now :/ Never felt like getting to it again.

Second is definitely better than the first. I can't believe how short the first one is. I never figured out if those tools could be used on the first game, though.

Good luck!

I have just updated the patch with another version.

I have fixed the problem I have previously encountered, but I still haven't heard anything from D yet. Now I just wondering how to modify the item and attack names, since none of the script files has them.

I am going to bump this thread with a new version of the patch.

Currently I managed to translate all the dialouge lines with the first village. Just needs a few extra areas done and you can pretty much play through the prolouge chapter and knowing what to do. And  I have even played through and test the areas to see if its bug free.


So as of the now current progress is exactly 10% done.

I tihink at the current pace this translation is going on, I think it will probably be finish by next year.

Just curious, but I recall D saying something along the lines that because this game uses that Starforce protection shit, this game can't be played on a laptop. 1 seemed to be fine, but 2 was a different story I recall. I owned both games at one point, but I don't think I ever installed 2.

Actually I play the 2nd game on a laptop, I am not sure what kind of things the Starforce DRM do, but It sure killed D's computer. Anyways nowadays, when I  play the game, Since I already have the game installed, I have used a software called Starforce Nightmare to removed the Starforce DRM, cause apparently even when you uninstall game, the DRM is still left behind in your computer causing problems, or so I heard.

But now, I play the game with a modified exe made by people that allows you play the game without going through all the DRM crap. You just need to copy all of the contents of the game disk to the install folder to run.

As Zoel has said, this has been overcome by a custom exe.  But yeah, Starforce is basically like installing a virus onto your computer.

IIRC, Starforce was made by Russian crackers who went legit.

So yeah, it's a nasty piece of work.

While I was digging for some old information, I have actually got a full Magic Guide summary posted on the mirrormoon forums from a long time ago. When I was still in Jr. High School.  Mostly because Gamefaqs rejected the guide due to the lack of information. And also another story of how Heroine Anthem 2 screwed D's computer.

Yeah, I had similar problems, though not with the PC not booting, just with certain programs or other things crashing the system which normally worked fine before the evil mothership that is Starforce was installed.  Again, as far as I know it's pretty much the equivalent of installing malware onto your computer.  Without the Starforce crack, it's unlikely that it's safe to install those old Starforce games.
