That's more what I was getting at. The technical side.

Gideon has said he has a real job now and the only way one could "help" is paying him to be able to sit around and work on the game all day in place of said job. :P (was it maybe even this thread?)

Yeah, I don't think any hackers have completed an RS2 translation (obviously the mobile one is complete).  If you check out Gideon's twitter feed, he's posted some of the unholy abominations that have resulted from his attempts at fixing the text box displays.  Not sure if there are any other hurdles, but that's been the big one I've heard most about.

Not to mention that if they deign to port it to Steam there will be the inevitable need for a screen filter removal mod. :P

What?

I'm guessing he's referring to the low quality of the mobile translation for RS2

Gideon's around here, but I believe his policy is that any time someone asks about progress, he delays things by a month (or something like that).

Not an official policy or anything, but the more you try to get a stubborn mule like me to work on something, the less I'll want to work on it. I've always been this way too. I remember not wanting to do my homework in, like, grade 2, because my parents kept noodling me about it.

Not every project is a complete nightmare or requires coding knowledge. It's not all that bad.

I think it's easier to teach a goat in a tutu to ballet than to teach a goat without one...

More like it will be a lazy garbage mobile to PC port that not only looks terrible, but runs at the wrong framerate, only supports an asinine aspect ratio, and uses a mobile phone UI.

Seriously, you'd be just better off playing the mobile version in Bluestacks.

The only AAA company that does a more incompetent job at PC ports of Japanese games than Square Enix is Tecmo Koei. Bandai Namco is a up there too with how inconsistent they are.

Magno, i'm glad you are working on it. Your work to provide RS3 to the spanish audience has been highly appreciated. Allow me to ask you a question: Have you considered hacking RS2? From what i can tell, it is the best entry (or at least most acclaimed) one.

Keep up the good work please.
