Interested in translating Love Quest (SFC)
« on: January 30, 2016, 07:28:38 am »
I'm interested in translating Love Quest (Super Famicom). Ideally I'd like help from an experienced ROM hacker so I can focus on the translation aspect. It's got a lot of humor that's similar to Earthbound but also somewhat adult, so I think people would enjoy playing it.
See a review/initial translation of the game I did on my blog:

I always though this game sounded awesome. Have you done anything with this yet?

I messaged watashinicksan this, but I think the font starts at 24800 - it's four tiles to a character, and it's got Hiragana, Katakana, the English Alphabet, and a ton of Kanji.

I asked Eien Ni Hen about it, and she said LostTemplar was working on it.
Though he hasn't been seen in a long time (he was also working on FEoEZ) so I have no idea about the current state.

On my blog at the bottom of my review post I translated some of the screenshots.

Actually I want to know if someone wants to help me with the hacking part so I can focus on the translation. I need the text dumped to a file.

I just played the first 20 or so minutes. How in the hell has nobody picked this one up yet? At nearly every box of dialogue I was laughing my ass off. Someone....Please  :P

Yeah, for real. This game sounds (and I hate to use this word and have never used it in this context) EPIC... It sounds almost as awesome as an RPG based on The Tick or something else off the wall that you would never expect.

Have you built a table for it, seeing how you've already figured out the font?

I don't think that one has been dumped (so the Japanese collector is the only person who can ever play the game).

Building a table is step one to that effort. Building the table starts with listing all kanji from the font, in order, in a text file.
I've recently finished that for another game with 2095 kanji...  :o So I'd rather not do this again for a few months.  :-X
Help, anyone?

Damn, I didn't know this game! For a moment I thouth it had something to do with Chris-Chan.
I'm off for some time. If for some weird, strange, and important reason, you need to talk to me, just send me a PM and probably I'll read it whenever I come back.
