I just finished playing through SF3 with the new v16 translation patch, and I'm amazed at how much has been added & improved since the v14.1 patch. I don't know if this is the right place to post about bugs in the new v16, but it seemed to me to be.

There is a bug with the Yes/No choices text that appeared in the new v16. I only encountered it in Scenario 3, and then only in Chapter's 4 and 5. It first appeared in Chapter 4 at the Aural Village Church. Where when you go to save, the text for the "Save" selection reads "Can't Promote".

Image


That's a unique instance in the game, however there is following that a reoccurring issue with a number of the Yes/No choice boxes text in Chapter 4 & 5. I first saw it after choosing to Save/Can'tPromote at that church in Aural Village, when the priest asks, "Would you like to make a record of your adventure?" the "Yes" box reads "No",
Image


and the "No" box reads "YES".
Image


This incorrect Yes/No box text continues for all the rest of the aural church priest's Yes/No questions.
Image

Image


Image

The bald man in Aural village who asks about metal garments has the incorrect Yes/No bug.


Image

The end of chapter 4 save has the incorrect Yes/No bug.


Image

In Chapter 5, after battle #19 "The First Trial" Yes/No bug when Garcia asks if Julian is prepared to enter Ark Hill.


Image

In Chapter 5, after battle #20 "The Second Trial" Yes/No bug when Garcia asks if he should use bless Julian with the Staff of Besem.


Image

In Chapter 5, before Battle #22 with Galm. Yes/No bug when Gracia asks Julian if he should discard the Staff of Besem.


Image

The end of chapter 5 save has the incorrect Yes/No bug.

Thank you so much - I recently bought a modded Saturn, the Sc 2 & 3 game discs and patched them. They work like a dream and I just finished Scenario II which is a thing of beauty. I can't thank the translation team enough -- a total dream come true to play this instalment.

The only major bug I did come across is the issue with Pappet's Wyverns in the tank causing screen glitches, which I notice has been reported in the error topic. There was the odd typo that I forgot to note down - I'll try to remember to keep a notepad with me in future, although you may be aware of them. But basically, it's a complete and total joy. Thank you!!

You're probably looking in the archive.

Just go to the official site (link in my sig) and click the big button to the right.

You can continue no problem.

It should be noted that a lot of improvements have been made the scenario opening cut scenes (you know the large cut scenes near the beginning) so you might want to re-watch those.

Just to let people know that the issue in Aural village should now be fixed.

If you download the v16 patch and repatch your Scenario 3 Japanese disc, it should be all right again :)

Not sure if this is a patch issue or not, and I'm a bit rushed so I can't read through previous notes.

We would only have control over what the dialog says, not the graphics or camera movement.

Fair enough. The only other thing I have noticed (and I can't give an example, since it was so long ago) is that sometimes the language is American, rather than British.

That is by design. Some elements were used from both regions. We made it a point to use some of both spellings while using instances that seemed to fit the Shining universe.

This has come up before and I believe the game is selecting the wrong line here, but maybe someone can help me figure that out for certain.

In Sc3 there is currently only one line where two characters join at once. There are two lines where one character joins.

There are two other opportunities for 2 characters to join at once. The first is in Ch1 where Isabella and Brigit can join together. The second is in Ch3 where Honesty and Isabella can join together.

I need to know if those other lines are functioning correctly in both situations.
So for the first, if you have Edmund, only Brigit will join. If you don't both will join.
For the second, if you killed Stella in Sc2 and you didn't get her in Ch1, Isabella will join with Honesty.

So 4 situations I need tested to be able to make a decision about the Marky join line.

Thanks in advance for your help.

After doing some testing I can report some results.

The short answer is that Marky's line is fixed, but another has been found to be disappointing.

The Sc3 Ch1 situation where Isabella and Brigit join together (if you don't have Edmund/Spared Stella) appears to be the only time in Sc3 where this can happen. In the Ch3 situation, the characters join one after the other and get their own messages.

All of the join messages I tested (Ch1 thru Ch3) use the same line. Unfortunately, that includes the one where Isabella and Brigit join, so that message never mentions Brigit. A missed opportunity by the devs for sure and there's nothing I can do about that. I suppose we could assume Brigit is an afterthought since she is basically Isabella's servant/bodyguard. While I can't control that join message, the dialog around it gives the information clearly.

The good news is that it appears Marky's join message can be corrected without affecting other join situations. I don't believe there is an instance where two characters join at once after Ch3, but I haven't tested the rest of the joins in the scenario, so I can't be sure until I do. If it happens, it would have to be someone who temporarily un-joined and then joined back with the new character, so let me know if anyone knows for sure if that happens.

i also cant think of another place with double joining time aside from brigidit isabelle. Just a theory but there was rogan that should join in chapter 4 but it was removed from the game maybe this problem is related to his joining phrase still be in the game or maybe not, just a theory.
