Translations: Translation for Ys 5 Finally Released
« on: November 28, 2013, 04:06:45 am »

Update By: Gideon Zhi

Aeon Genesis has, at long last, released their translation of Ys 5: Kefin, Lost Kingdom of Sand. Until now, this was the last story in the lengthy Ys history to not be told in English in some form or other. The translation was an immensely difficult task and hit several nasty bumps in the road, but the resulting patch is highly polished and well worth playing.

Hooray! I've been looking forward to this translation for quite some time! Thanks for this awesome release Gideon & team!
A little question of the history of this project: When was the work on this first started?

An easy way to tell if the game has a header or not is that if you
apply the patch and the game does not boot, your game very likely does
not have a header.

Another major milestone. Kudos, and a very happy holidays to all.

This is how the configuration menu looks like after unlocking the option to change Adol's hair color.

There's an option to change Adol's hair color? o_O

And frankly, I'm surprised it doesn't crash the game completely.

Yeah. The option is unlocked by talking to a hidden NPC located behind the building in the upper-right corner of Felte. The NPC is inside the wall, so you can't bump into it. Its sprite is that of a crystal shard, which can be seen by disabling the second background layer.

Yeah, found that. Tested it; the functionality is still there and the game doesn't crash, but it IS ugly, so I'm going to file this away under medium-priority issues and look at it later.

I would consider it, but only from a proven team with strong assembly and debugging support. Hacking this game was incredibly difficult and while the text all fits, it's frequently a fairly tight squeeze. I can't imagine the nightmare it'd be if I needed twice as much space for everything; I'm already fitting on average 3x as much data in any given space as was stored in the original version.

Does this work with Expert? Any plans for that?
