Quote from: Fionordequester on April 16, 2021, 02:26:40 PMWanted to point out what I believe is a small context error, during Zero's ending. Zero wonder "Why did I fight the Sigma again?", but I think he should be asking "Why am I fighting Sigma again?".
Quote from: BlazeHeatnix on April 17, 2021, 08:29:15 PMIn the Training stage, if you pause and select quit, you get an Alia results screen, and going to the stage select afterwards immediately puts you at the last stage.I have no idea if that's just me.
Quote from: BlazeHeatnix on April 17, 2021, 08:29:15 PMIn general, I wish the script had more...flavor, I guess? X5's script was inaccurate and awkward, but another problem was that it was dry, and this retranslation doesn't do much to fix that. X4's dialogue felt more "western" in its delivery, and when you look at MHX and X8, those games' scripts feel more natural. I guess what I'm saying is I would've preferred a more Woolsey-ish localization job. Mega Man is a fun series, so have more fun with the scripts.

Quote from: Aceearly1993 on April 18, 2021, 10:00:17 AMThe K.O. screams of X and Zero from May 1, 2000 prototype were still in this build, but with X's voice actor changed to Shōtarō Morikubo
Quote from: acediez on April 18, 2021, 07:05:59 AMYeah, let's add some Guns 'n Roses references while we're at it.
Quote from: BlazeHeatnix on April 18, 2021, 01:55:19 PMA middle ground isn't impossible to achieve. All I'm saying is the text could be less verbose and literal, while still conveying the same information. There's a reason even modern localization jobs are not accurate to the letter.
Quote from: acediez on April 18, 2021, 05:01:21 PMIf you don't consider it an improvement, you can always stay with v1.5. Personally, as I'm not from USA and don't share your taste for "flavor" "westernization", I very much prefer a more literal translation of what the original game said.
Quote from: Aceearly1993 on April 18, 2021, 10:00:17 AMSo it seems there's yet another X5 prototype build (labeled July 28, 2000) being dumped just yesterday. Acediez have you examined how the player battle voice works in this build and in final?
Quote from: pleasejust on April 18, 2021, 06:22:35 PMNothing to do with from U.S. It has to do with proper english. Just from looking at the screens above from the zero/Sigma interaction. The dialog seems kind of stupid. It's obvious to anyone anyone who speaks English that a literal translation is NEVER the way to go. It's always better to be meaningful and have it sound good at the very least.
Quote from: Raykusen on April 19, 2021, 02:52:20 AMI only have one simple request: Please add an option to skip cutscenes.I hope you can implement this in a future update
Quote from: acediez on April 19, 2021, 11:46:47 AMSpecific lines suggestions are always welcome and considered, but this "do a whole new script until I like it" attitude you have won't get you anywhere. Bye, go make your own hack.
Quote from: BlazeHeatnix on April 19, 2021, 01:15:24 PMThis is the last time I'm going to push this subject since you seem to not want to budge on it. Just consider not lashing out at anyone who critiques this hack.
QuoteYou say "just play 1.5 if you don't like it" but that's hardly a fair option when 1.5 doesn't have any of the bugfixes or extra features of later versions.
Quote from: acediez on April 18, 2021, 07:05:59 AMThat comes straight from Hondoori. Not gonna argue with the translator.
Quote from: Fionordequester on April 21, 2021, 01:30:45 PMHope I didn't offend!
Quote from: Aceearly1993 on April 22, 2021, 02:04:42 AMNow just here to share a small info about the July 28, 2000 prototype while I was organizing stuff in the TCRF page.In the July 28, 2000 prototype, player was able to hold Select+Start to force the game to soft reset anywhere, even during any story scenario or text dialogue. My guess is at some point of development, the game did not disable input from Start button press during story scenario times.
Quote from: tc on April 22, 2021, 02:26:20 AMI'm going out on a limb and suggest the critics are missing the mark completely.Maybe the translation is flat, because the Japanese script is flat. Ever consider that?
Quote from: acediez on April 22, 2021, 10:09:56 AMI'm saving this one among other cool features until after we're done polishing up the script/font release.
Quote from: kkdavilyn on April 22, 2021, 11:56:09 PMMore new features? Sick! Thanks so much for putting so much love into this old game. Any chance one of those possible new features is a palette change for ultimate armor to match x4? if not no big deal, I think I'm one of the only people who even care about it anyway lol.

Quote from: acediez on April 23, 2021, 10:12:41 AMNope, but you can change it yourself. Look for the palette data on the game's bin, and replace it. If you don't know how, follow the instructions in the readme.Look for this data:Code Select ExpandUltimate Armor Palette (X5):0000 BC90 AC8C FAAD BBC6 06D3 23B6 24B1 17EB 72D6 8ABD C59C 07EE A6E5 04D5 C4BC0000 BFCB 3DA2 95A1 DD94 AC8C 9BFF B4DE 2FD2 69B9 C49C E083 69F6 E7ED 24E1 A3C4And replace with this:Code Select ExpandUltimate Armor Palette (X4):0000 DD94 AC8C FAAD FDCE 71F2 71DD 6CD0 9BFB B4DE 69B9 C49C 69F6 E7ED 24D9 A3C40000 BFCB 3DA2 95A1 9E88 EB94 9BFF B4DE 2FD2 69B9 C49C C8EB 69F6 C8ED 45C1 E3ACThat should modify the player file. That's actually two palette sets: Ultimate Armor (second line), and unarmored X underneath (first line).Besides that, you'll find two other instances of the armor palette in the file (the character select screen is one, not sure about the other one. Could be unused)To change those, do another search, this time only for the second line, and replace with the second line from X4.I'm not giving you the exact addresses because the position could change from update to update. But you should be able to find them with the search function of any hexadecimal editor on any version of the game.
