Quote from: Cavery210 on January 18, 2017, 03:51:01 PMLunar.net has all the differences between the uncut Japanese version and the J2e/4Kids-like abortion that Working Designs did for the Lunar games.
Quote from: Midna on January 18, 2017, 09:11:16 PMYes, Working Designs jacked up the difficulty on Lunar to arguably unplayably frustrating levels for no readily apparent reason.
Quote from: Piotyr on January 18, 2017, 12:22:47 AMGot I loved Lunar silver star so much as a kid, I hate that it was butchered so hard, to think I could of been playing an even better game! The Lunar games need a legends of localization.
Quote from: Kallisto on January 17, 2017, 11:59:17 PMVoice redubs are doable considering this was amateur level voice acting back in the day, so I think anyone can pull that off if needed.
Quote from: Gary_Oak on January 18, 2017, 03:18:39 PMThank you for creating these! Is there a chance you could do the same for Magic Knight Rayearth (Saturn)? A fun Zelda clone that would get cheap in terms of difficulty (notably, the final boss battle).
Quote from: vivify93 on January 18, 2017, 04:41:26 PMThe proper case in Lunar: Eternal Blue looks fantastic. Do you think you'd do Lunar: The Silver Star to have a matched set?
Quote from: Tater Bear on January 18, 2017, 05:59:06 PMI like the idea behind this, but I also understand why sometimes games need to be made harder. If a game is too easy to beat then it becomes boring to play, but if a game is too hard then it is frustrating and not fun. Finding the right balance is hard. I beat Popful mail years ago pretty quickly without much issue, but last year I decided to boot it up again and was surprised by how hard the final boss was (I loaded up my last game save). On replay, I found the last boss to be fairly frustrating and I don't know how I managed to beat it so quickly when I first played the game (Maybe because I played it from the beginning it helped me to refine my skills to the point that the last boss wasn't all that hard). I think I have become a casual gamer over the years, thus leading to me to suck at playing non-RPG games .
Quote from: travel27 on January 18, 2017, 09:15:21 PMReally? I never found the Lunar: EB or Lunar SSSC or popful mail to be all that hard. The last boss gives a very nice challenge but otherwise, not too bad. I remember beating SSSC on level 50 as a teen.
Quote from: cj iwakura on January 18, 2017, 07:26:36 PMWhile I'm a big fan of WD and usually defend their localizations(at least they're not dry like some stuff done nowadays), I have to say the new font looks fantastic. Nice work.
Quote from: Supper on January 19, 2017, 03:01:33 PMFunny thing, that. The lower case font was actually already in the game and fully functional (in fact, the entire English font is included in the Japanese version). All I had to do was change the text. I think they did it that way because the lower case letters have a different baseline from the upper case ones, so they look a bit sloppy together, but it's such a ridiculous solution I have a hard time believing it.On a related note, I might edit the font in the future to fix the baseline issue, though I'll have to write a compressor for the wacky font format first.
Quote from: thainferno305 on January 19, 2017, 06:01:35 PMhey ur patch doesnt work i tried it it keeps giving me a error
Quote from: Kallisto on January 19, 2017, 08:44:06 PMPardon my ignorance, but was it only the SEGA CD versions that were butchered? I've only played the PSX versions (I did try to play the PSP version of Silver Star, but was put off by some of the design choices).
Quote from: Lunar:SSSC English Working Designs Translation"Emperor Ghaleon likes pixies, so he had the Vile Tribe capture us for his garden. It's beautiful and peaceful here, but it's still a prison."
Quote from: Lunar:SSSC English Kizyr's Translation"We pixies who were living in the Frontier were about to die out. But, Ghaleon helped us."
Quote from: thainferno305 on January 19, 2017, 11:42:13 PMDude ur patch for lunar is not working pls fix it I'm using my delta patch and nothing is working
Quote from: Furluge on January 19, 2017, 02:03:12 PMI have to say I am a bit put off by all the negativity here. I don't think the localization of Lunar Eternal Blue is what you would call butchered or "j2e or 4kids" based on that catalog of edits. (Linked below) Honestly I think you are going to be hard pressed to find a team that cared as much about the source material and putting out a quality product as WD was. That being said good luck with your project, I hope it turns out to be everything you want it to be. Pointing it out I can see some of the difficulty changes pretty clearly, especially in MP costs. Magic XP to save was clearly a mistake (I would be interested in a patch that just removed this.) as WD admitted themselves in the book for Lunar EBC. The lowercase font does look very nice as well.
Quote from: vivify93 on January 19, 2017, 10:23:17 PMHey Supper, do you want me to proper-case Lunar 1 for you? It looks like the dialogue is in plaintext ASCII. I could do this and you could work on whatever difficulty changes there were.

Quote from: Magma Dragoon on January 20, 2017, 12:32:05 PMPlease work on Exile Wicked Phenomenon next.
Quote from: Midna on January 20, 2017, 01:50:32 AMI'm with Supper on this one. I don't think less of people for enjoying Working Designs stuff, but looking at the original script, it's clear there was a little too much localization going on. Taking a relatively serious work and trying to add in comedic elements and pop culture references doesn't normally end well, sorry to say (and in that regard, j2e is a very apt comparison). Plus putting your own names before those of the actual developers is pretty arrogant.
Quote from: Supper on January 20, 2017, 04:15:28 PM Again, putting aside whether the new dialogue is "better" or "worse", it rarely represents the original material except in the broadest strokes. I'll just link you to my writeup at TCRF: https://tcrf.net/Lunar:_Eternal_Blue/Regional_Differences#Dialogue
