Quote from: bailli on December 21, 2016, 03:12:49 PMNoooooooooo. Please do not use the horrible (US) date format. Everybody else will get confused by this.When I read dates (on the internet/in games) I always hope to find one with a day >12 to make sure I get it right...
Quote from: Tom on January 02, 2017, 11:46:35 AMI'm American, born and raised, so this translation follows American English rules for spelling and grammar.It's only natural that it will follow the American English pattern for date order.I can understand your disappointment, though. I know how confusing an unfamiliar pattern can be.(I sometimes get a bit thrown off when I see Date, Month, Year, or 1.000 instead of 1,000...)At least you have a heads up, so you won't get TOO confused, even if it's not your preference.If (as KingMike suggested) DDS can hack the game to show A.M. and P.M. distinctions instead of military time, that would be a change that I would welcome! However, if that turns out to be problematic, I think it's okay to show military time. Military time is certain unconventional in America, but it's not entirely foreign.Finally back from my vacation, by the way.Happy new year, everyone.
Quote from: cccmar on January 02, 2017, 12:32:45 PMFahrenheit to Celsius temperature conversion seems somewhat similar. The US is the only country where Fahrenheit's scale is in official use and, even though we Europeans generally know how the Fahrenheit scale works, it just seems out of place somehow. It makes more sense to me that when it's cold to say that it's -10 C for instance than 14-15 F, but perhaps that's just me."Officially", like on the weather forecast etc., the temperature is given in Celsius, although the forecaster does give equivalents in Fahrenheit sometimes. We swapped systems a while ago, so there are now quite a lot of people used to both systems, but also quite a few people who refuse to use the "new method." Still, I grew up with the Celsius, so it seems more natural to me. Translators always have it rough, it never rains but it pours.
Quote from: bailli on January 03, 2017, 09:52:08 AMI totally understand that you chose the US format. I have no problems playing a game using that format, I was simply exaggerating a bit Anyway, really nice work from everyone involved. Keep it up
Quote from: patuli on January 03, 2017, 11:07:35 PMIt is posible to use month abbreviations to avoid confusion? Instead of:"Bring me a thousand yen on 3-10-2017, at 3:30 P.M."Something like this:"Bring me a thousand yen on Oct./3/2017, at 3:30 P.M."Anyway It seems you guys, have the game almost complete, thanks for everything!

Quote from: Tater Bear on January 07, 2017, 01:15:20 AM Any chance of using a brush and paper? (Too keep with the oriental feel)
Quote from: Tom on January 07, 2017, 06:11:31 AMHope you enjoy seeing a brush on the sign when you play the game!
Quote from: Tom on January 08, 2017, 10:01:49 PMThey would be tsurugi on the sign. They look the kind of sword Higan carries on his back (albeit shorter). There is also an icon for katana, but it doesn't appear on the shop signs. It appears in the smaller item font, used for katana that had names that were too long to spell out. The size of that tiny font icon is so small that it's not possible to convey that slight sense of curvature for the katana icon, but it gets the point across (also, most items get their names spelled out in the item description, with a few exceptions).
Quote from: dejan07 on January 11, 2017, 01:51:00 PMSince in-game requests are now in how about hacking in alarm clock to wake me up in the morning? The sound should be the bells from Chrono Trigger!I will not stop playing this game so why not incorporate this game into my daily routine?
Quote from: Tater Bear on January 11, 2017, 05:16:34 PMThanks for the reply! I look forward to the completion of this translation!!!
