I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here, but I'd like to make some further suggestions.

それにしても おれたちまで
ついらくしてまうとは。。。
That aside, to think even we would crash...

最悪のてんかいだな
A terrible turn of events, all right.

I don't know much about the context of the game, so please consider these as mere suggestions.

Thank you all for the suggestions, as far as context goes, heres the full conversation happens on the site of the crashed ship:

Dias:
どうだ?
全員無事が?
それにしても おれたちまで
ついらくしてまうとは。。。
最悪のてんかいだな

Precis:
でもクロードとレナも
こっちに向かってるらしいから
最悪でもそれでかえわるね

Dias:
...
心配になってきない...

I think ckrit's translation is great.

(English is not my native language, so never take anything I translate too literally... I wanted to say something similar to what he said, but it probably just came out awfully. :D)

The previous translations were all good, but I figured I'd take one more crack at it... for fun?

Dias:
どうだ?
全員無事が?
それにしても おれたちまで
ついらくしてまうとは。。。
最悪のてんかいだな

Dias:
Well,
is everyone okay?
Really, to think that
we'd also crash...
Things are turning out poorly.


Precis:
でもクロードとレナも
こっちに向かってるらしいから
最悪でもそれでかえわるね

Precis:
But Claude and Rena
are on their way here,
so it may be awful, but we can still go home.

Dias:
...
心配になってきない...

Dias:
...
I have a bad feeling about this

sorry about that and thanks for the help in correcting them! by any chance were those corrections made using a table file? i've been working on one but there's so many kanji i struggle with recognizing

If you can find all of the kanji in one of the tile editing programs and can post it up here, someone might be able to type up the correct kanji for you.

Here's an example:

Ah, that's a terrible example. :D It looks like no one helped him and then he ended up doing it all by himself (took him an entire month :P).

Anyway... I don't have a table file, I'm typing in the kanji characters as I find them, since the font is so tiny and ugly... It's easier with context.

Also, the game won't work with regular tables... Unless there's a program that can handle at least 3 different tables, and pick the correct one depending on the last bytecode... You'll need to code your own program or modify one for this game, I think.

I would have to agree on how tiny and ugly the kanji are (8px by 8px is not a good size for clear symbols). i have found where they're stored mostly cuz i've been replacing them with english characters as i've needed but i could still post the original sheets for help on them.

Yeah, that shouldn't have taken more than a few hours by someone who knows these to be honest. Poor guy.  ;D

Go ahead, I wouldn't mind having a look at them.

I would absolutely love to see this game translated. I actually bought a strategy guide for it even before I could read Japanese. Kinda wish I still had it, I'd love to read it now!

Anyway, if you're able to get an image please post it! I'd definitely be willing to help out.

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?

The French translation is a huge piece of shit. They made up 99% of the text, and it's not properly hacked, so the ROM space they had was minuscule. Avoid it like the plague.
