question regarding the shining force III english translation patch
« on: September 17, 2020, 03:15:10 pm »
http://sf3trans.shiningforcecentral.com/patch-instructions/ http://www.romhacking.net/translations/1569/

"The SF3TranslationPatcher.exe only works with a CD drive (no virtual drive support) and uses the bin/cue format exclusively. Windows 10 is supported."

do i require the actual physical discs for this? if so...what a sick and cruel joke of a translation patch.

*checks amazon just in case* O_O $199?! well, if that's the requirement then this patch is not happening at all cause i ain't paying 200 dollars for a single video game.

That is too bad because original Japanese CD is the only way I'd legitimately own the game.
The three Japanese scenarios were like $20 each games last I knew, far more reasonable.

And if it's a retranslation as it says, what is the point then of specifically requiring the official translation anyways?
Is it only making some changes to the official translation rather than completely rewriting it?

only the first disc (scenario) was released in english. the rest were japanese exclusive.

if i'm not mistaken in my assumption, the retranslation of the first disc should change the story back to how it would normally fit with the japanese discs.

What an odd restriction.  I wonder why it doesn't support virtual drives?  Would a virtual drive in a virtual machine work any better?
