errrr.... apparently the edit post button doesnt work as intended lol
so here's the post i wrote before it started screwing up at edits
I told tom that the choice of how he wishes to translate the script is ultimately his, as he is the translator working on it, and merely offered my point of view on the matter, which (aside the fact that i really chose to use bad wording to bring it out.) was simply that. a point of view.
Yes, i dont like the idea of renaming karula to karla, she is one of the most iconic characters of the game, and I think her name should be kept as it is. I do point out at this point though, that counting together every single thing that was changed from how i initially laid it out, this particular one was the only thing i pointed out i did not agree with, and even so, I did tell Tom that if he still insists on changing it after hearing my opinion, then he simply should.
im not hung up on any specific style of how this game should be translated (or localized, or whatever you wish to call it) i simply have my own preference which ultimately tends to be very accurate, at the cost of being a little engrishy from some points (such as names.) you can call it weeabooism or call me an asshole over it all you want people, but that's how i like my games.
the misunderstanding here is mostly boiling down to the fact that apparently I managed to convince Tom that i wouldn't enjoy the way he writes things or that i'd just somehow consider it on "only better than nothing" which simply isn't true.
Either way, since Tom doesn't wish to continue it, then that's the end of the story. the project is dead.
I've spent enough time on this game already, and really dont feeling getting a 3rd round of false hope of getting to ever play it.
if someone wishes to continue, be my guest, but dont ask me to be involved in it.
the material regarding zill and it's hacking is still safe, im not masochistic enough to actually destroy that amount of work.
I'll decide what to do with it later on.
As of this moment we are still working on hacking the game with Binaryfail. The script engine still needs it's gender variable, and the game UI has a nice pile of bugs left on it.
afterall, hacking is what we do. That's what got me started to begin with.
but even if i do eventually reopen the project, it wont be in a while for sure.
