Implementing the the end game text scroll was long and tedious, possibly the lamest part of this hack! But it's over now, mostly I took a bit of liberty to "correct" the misspellings and funky grammar, though I'm not sure exactly how far to go.
One thing that's weird is in Hudson game, they spell some characters like Kuribo as Kuribou.. I don't know if this is a different romanization of the same word or what, but I changed them to match what Nintendo calls them in print literature, which does not have the U on the end. I noticed there was one new ememy name which ends with OU, "SIGEBOU" (the fireball).. I suspect this should also be SIGEBO to match with Kuribo and Togezo. If anyone has any insight into this, I'd appreciate it. I want the text to be free of errors in English and Japanese
Other questions are what is 'Enemy Dispoed By' supposed to mean? I assume it's "Enemy Designed By" since it follows "Course Design By".. and "Sound Effected By" is funny but also got changed to "Sound Design By"
The final screen is a bit tougher.. not much space to turn "Fly Sky" into something a little more coherent, for example.
Anyways, moving into the final phase of minor tweaks and bug fixes, hopefully should be done very soon
Good questions. The "O" vs. "OU" question is a matter of romanization. Japanese is a rhythmic language, and the time that you hold vowels can change the meaning of the word. When the O sound is lengthened, it there are 3 different ways to do it, but they all sound the same. Depending on how it's written in Japanese, and the romanization, you could end up with "O", "Ō", "OO", "OH", or "OU". The one that's taught to most Japanese students is "OU", because it mimics what they're doing in Katakana. However, for English speakers, the single O is preferred. (ie - Tokyo instead of Tōkyō, Tookyoo, Tohkyoh, or Toukyou.)
I think you're right on the "Enemy Designed By", and I'd go with your instinct.
For the final screen, "Fly in the sky" is the most natural to me, but I think you could shorten it to "fly in sky" if there are space limitations.
