Sakura Wars GB English Translation (Gameboy Color)
« on: June 18, 2021, 11:41:32 am »
Hey i'm working on an English translation for Sakura Wars GB

Example of the Translation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfCA-mJHjYI (Bugs and memory issues that need to be looked into)

The game is a spin off title of the Sakura wars franchise featuring similar gameplay to the console games but with a new story. The story is you meeting Ayame Fujieda, who has been searching all over Japan to find people with great spiritual power. In this game you will spend a month at the grand imperial theater to train to fight demons. There meet the 6 members of the Imperial Combat Revue and aim to complete your graduation exam.

Looks good!

Friendly tip:
Definitely get someone who's a native English speaker/writer to help you with grammar, spelling, and idiosyncrasies of the English language in general.  :beer:

Hey there, I’ve been wanting to do this game as well. I recently did the English translation for sakura wars columns 2 on Dreamcast and worked on the original on Saturn a bit. I can get you in touch with the whole fan translation community as well as access to programmers and people that know the language really well.

On a whim, I checked this game out and while the script appears to be uncompressed, it's also embedded with scripting code, which makes getting a clean rip of the script a lot of work.

I would say that's the most pressing problem facing any translation. Because of the amount of text in the game, there needs to be a clean rip of the script with all the scripting code figured out in order to have something that you can easily reinsert back into the ROM.
