I still lurk on RHDN because I like reading about programming stuff so I thought I'd give a response to something that is related to me.
I haven't distributed it or tried to upload it as an addendum because I didn't get any feedback from Chaos Rush one way or another. I reached out to him, but the only response I got was "I don't do ROM hacking any more".
Well to be fair, you didn't say upfront what you wanted to do, and once you did you left the chatroom before I was able to give a proper response, preventing me from giving a proper reply (since apparently Discord only lets you message people that you share a chatroom with). (EDIT: it was before I saw that you PM'd me here too)
Anyways if you want to make a v1.8, go ahead. I thought I made it rather clear in my last post in the FF NES trilogy translations thread that I'm "passing it on" to the community and people can update it from there, though I apologize if that wasn't made clear. Though I'm not sure if RHDN's system allows owner transfership of projects, if not then you would have to post it as an addendum (I think).
But also I want to say, around the time I said that I'm done with working on those projects, some people harassed me on Discord with questions like:
"Are you going to release the source code for your tools?"
"So you're never going to translate the Wonderswan versions of FF then?"
I want to say, I appreciate people's support for my past projects, but I also wish people could understand that I'm not obligated to work on them until perfection, nor am I obligated to work on projects I never even started to begin with (despite expressing interest in the past to do it - such as a hypothetical translation of Wonderswan FF1). I don't want to be held a slave to projects that I simply don't want to work on anymore.
Also I understand that my text editors might be useful but for personal reasons I don't wish to release the source code (and I no longer have access to the older ones anyways since they were on my old laptop which I no longer have access to).
At this point I want to devote my creative energies fully to my own game that I'm working on, and I am confident that if I work hard on it that it can be successful. There's a good reason why you don't see former ROM hackers like the Undertale dev or the Sonic Mania devs returning to ROM hacking (I'm not gonna state why I think at this time but I will say it's related to ethics).
So yes, feel free to update any of my old projects. However, I will not -cannot- update any of my old text editors, and I hope the community can respect my decision regarding that. I am
done with ROM hacking.
EDIT: One more thing I want to add, my FF2 translation was the first one I did, so it's also the least polished under the hood. It used the Demiforce translation as an "engine" (since it already contained DTE code and re-arranged the in-game special terms menu), but redid all of the text. There may or may not be some changes unaccounted for, and also unused data from the Demiforce title screen (which I used a patch to remove), and also just data offsets shifts of various tables to increase space. If you're making a disassembly, I think you should work with the Japanese version and just make a new English version from there - and as stated before I'm okay with you guys using/updating the script from my FF2 translation.
