@Surging Aura: Can you take those 3 screenshots on your emulator instead with your camera? Are you playing on a real console?

I'm sorry, I can't. I play on a real console using an Everdrive. But I can try to take better photos from now on, if that helps.

Thank you for the translation, I've been dying for a translation for a while, thank you!

If you could, please document every instance of line skipping with a save/screenshot, this is the most prevalent technical issue with this translation (that's how the concatenation works, so we're retesting it one more done). Once that's done it should be more or less ready for release I reckon. :)

Great! Thanks! I'll try it. Here are some more reports on the last one:

From which version this screenshots were made?

I just beat the game today :). Look what I have found:








This is with Beta 2.

EDIT: For the next thing (Beta 3 or Final), my suggestion to change "PUSH START BUTTON" to more appropriate "PRESS START BUTTON".

OK, thanks!
Fixed all of this.

They were from beta 1.

I played beta 2 and the game crashed in the VOID base (in the forest) on Venus. I took a screenshot when exactly it happened. Will upload after work.
I don't know if it's the game or my Everdrive to blame. But I managed to beat the dungeon without crash on a second try later.

Works fine on my end (MD.EMU), i think that bug had a serious issue on a real console. Will Celcion fix this?

I didn't change anything in the game code, no ASM-hacks whatsoever, so I highly doubt that it was caused by me.
Also, no one ever reported any crashes so far (I also never had this happen), so I doubt that I would be able to fix something that I can't reproduce...

Found some stuff, but it seems like someone else beat me to the Japanese text one:


I got to -> I've got to (I think)


Should be lower case A on Alert.


Happens when trying to repair when shield is low.


hunter's -> hunters' (if there are several, I think there are)


such person -> such a person


Should have a question mark at the end, I think.

@Surging Aura: Uhh... Are you Zebbe? (Just looking at your Photobucket user)

Hello everyone!

Thank you for your reports!
Will fix that soon.

I hope next version will be final because I think it's not that much left to fix.

BTW, I checked possibility to move text (upper and change strings number). While it's actually possible, I don't think I'll do it at this stage, because it will require to 1) change the dialogue engine which is pretty complex actually, 2) reformat ALL the dialogues lines (yeah, 4200+ of them) and 3) re-test everything. To put it simple, another 1-2 months of work on this game.
For a rather cosmetic change - I don't think it really worth it.
If someone else wants to do it - be my guest. :-)

Looks like a interesting game. Look forward to the translation!

It's funny that they gave the robot sidekick a different name, one of the translators must have been a fan of Elvis. ;) Shame it didn't come out in the west all things considered, but what can you do...

I think that this version will resurface eventually, Namco version was completely translated and ready to go, but for some reasons they pulled the plug.
We can play translated Japanese version in the mean time.

Star Cruiser (MD) Final Boss + Ending is up ;)

I think that scrolling text issue on 1:50 duration (Energy level increasing) had a connection with Reply #48 in this thread.

A few more:


Comma, not dot after Welcome.


help -> the help


Line break at interesting.


No text at first option.


VOID soldiers -> the VOID soldiers


emergency -> an emergency

Hoiywood/Hollywood. Spelled in both ways several times. Make it consistent by making all the same.

Yep, this one:
