Star Ocean Blue Sphere Kanji assistance
« on: June 08, 2016, 12:28:34 am »
I was told in another topic that I could request assistance with kanji recognition. Here are the kanji tables for this game. I uploaded the tile grids as some of them took up the full tile and blended with the others as well as uploading an enlarged version. 8px by 8px is far too small to read IMO.





Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

Wow, reading gameboy fonts if brutal!

Here are the first 10 lines of the first image (or as many as I could read.. those I couldn't make out with confidence are marked with a *).

*盗*聖穴*気*薬剣*閃刀村雨庁
*名邪力万能包丁小大*αβγ神王
“”通*前行所持買売値清算店決定
************ステータス
中表示君有部軍殺間関者事最言知話

火屋交*出品押引*待受兵下上月森
情報手未来北西東南違*文自年地生
天人目分*街*彼現殊武高助的送服
科学星伝説*男災実経聞*赤青音呪

I'm not really sure since I don't know Kanji, but when I typed this one in (薬)

I got something to do with medicine.

Team effort!

Total first page (merged with what Seihen have done and fixed a few *s)

飾盗賎聖穴*気付薬剣*閃刀村雨庁
作名邪力万能包丁小大村αβγ神王
“”通*前行所持買売値清算店決定
************ステータス
中表示君有部軍殺間関者事最言知話
特何衣明思方大丈夫死古代長宇宙船
火屋交*出品押引竜待受兵下上月森
情報手未来北西東南違跡文自年地生
天人目分*街夜彼現殊武高助的送服
科学星伝説女男災実経聞倒赤青音呪
**石宮流一泊金用安心休宿字甘鉹
動床炉非入止重兄弟少今逃*我指々
会勝負仇*徐初血花咲利参叩*弱土
色乙封印失*共空全以*岩水**光
宝箱声器主命*早立不幸せ相道具客
本日母発山当先向必研究忠告悔起*

I'll do the second page at a later time in case someone haven't already done it before me - then someone can correct us on the *s.

About that kanji mentioned in the last post, it's either going to be 楽 (raku - happy) or 薬 (kusuri - drugs/meds). It looks like the latter so I'll assume it's drugs until someone throws a sentence about happiness.

Question, you do realize there's a French version of the game already released, which you could work from instead of from Kanji. Have you tried that?

Rule #1 of translation: never translate from another translation.

It's okay guys, no worries. The Star Ocean: Blue Sphere bullet can be given by Bet Boy.

Which used tons of prebaked dual letter combinations where the kanji would be in the JP version = a hacking nightmare, would be much easier to start from scratch... though it could be useful to find graphics/pointers/text with a hex comparing utility.

It's a pretty good translation without much typos and romanizations suited to French pronunciation, buuut since this is Japanese this means context and stuff easily lost in translation is a much bigger issue here (not that Nintendo cares when they had the European translations made from the English memefied text rather than the JP text).
