I myself have been to busy with projects for my business and work, it would be nice to have a few more helping hands to just do something to actually put script in, at this point I really do not care what goes in there as long as it sort of makes sence

its really simple acutally. Using the development patches I provided, when playing the game, you will recieve a filename and number when they talk. What you then eed to do, is match the line to the line of script in the translator, so
X5SARA248 190 means in file X5SARA248.jap, go to line 190, and type in the translation there, then save it.

When you are all done, send me the .SF3 files and I will compress it and test it.

Note text should be limited to about 250 characters

files 1-7 of every group is done, along with most of 8.

Depending where you are, towns end at 8-204 battles end at 8-240

Also do not worry about church or shops, I have that speech saved also

Just to make sure I understand what your saying, when you say

files 1-7 of every group is done, along with most of 8.

Do you mean that files X5SARA001 XXX - X5SARA007 XXX are done
or am I misunderstanding you?

The reason I ask is, imputing the files in the translator does not seem to be that difficult of a task, most of the people at SCF should be able to assist with that, I think the most complicated thing would be compiling the patch and testing it, correct.

I am currently in school and have to work 2 jobs, so my free time is spent studying however early December I will have a month off and I would like to devote a portion of my time to helping with the patch so I just want to make sure I'm keeping up with everything now so I don't get behind in case things change with your translator.

yes that is correct, for the most part, the only thing that needs to be done is what people are actually saying, basically lines of dialog. Every file group also contains the basics like menus, this is to reduce loading times I am guessing

Start with chapter 2, fill in text from the story, I am not sure what file it is though, so use the dev patches to find them

AAAAHHGGHHGHG!?!

I downloaded all the stuff i needed yesterday, copied the cd files to my pc and created a patch for the SF3-2 game. Then i decided to leave it till today to try with the translation. I however have just been handed a massive project for my College art class and it will be talking all my time. I've got the project for a month so in a month i'll be back and ready to help. Sorry KoD. I will help in future though.

Hey KOD I don't know if you are aware of this or not but

From what I understand you did not get along with the people who ran "The Whirlpool" videogame translation website which has now shut down, for some reason they would never put any information up on there website regarding your translation.

Well Nightcrawler (a fellow hacker not really associated with "The Whirlpool") has decided to create a new website, which he is hoping to turn into a community of VG hackers something like "The Whirlpool" but better.

So once Nightcrawler website is up and active maybe you might be able to find others willing to assist with the translation as well.

Here is the message board I found the info at which shows his plans for the website, it sounds like it has some promise as long as everything rolls out according to plan.

The whirlpool site posted false information that pissed me off, then this other guy Cyberwarrior and I got into a little feud thanks to it, since he felt there was a "credit" issue. Things between us have worked out but sites like that just piss me off and Im glad they didnt post any info. Id suggest if Nightcrawler wants to post any news, make sure its accurate, or there will be trouble there too. He can either quote from here or ask me for permission with regards to my work

I could understand your frustration, but once the new website is up I will email nightcrawler and let him know about this website so if he wants to contact you about your translation work at least the option would be available.

And also from looking back at all the different translation projects I would have to say you really must have a vast amount of knowledge on the workings of computers to be able to do this translation because most of the translation that have already been completed have been for 2-d consoles but with the move to the Saturn and PS not much work has been completed in the way of hacking and translating so I have to give you props where they are due.

honestly the sad part is i belive this compression will work for a lot of games in a way. It can sort of work for SW and STHA, and I belive radiant silvergun, which somehow I also got myself involved in tranlating, although I havent done anything big for that and wont for a while.

So are you now part of a translation group or just lending a hand?

Also why would STHA & SW need to be retranslated did you feel it was poorly done by Sega?
