Translation tools

looking for the Translation tools that were used

Discussion about this excellent Game Gear RPG.

Translation tools

Postby captainn » Tue Nov 14 2017 12:39am

Just wondering if anybody out there still has the Translation tools that were used in translating this game made by z80_gaiden, and any other files, scripts, or sources that he made.

It seems most everybody originally involved isn't around anymore, or don't respond to emails either, lol

I was hoping to use them for reference for translating a SF game.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks

Hey captainn,

Searched z80's posts and just found this :
https://forums.shiningforcecentral.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=5362&p=607168

More precisely, this "fcpack.zip" archive :
https://forums.shiningforcecentral.com/download/file.php?id=814

Judging by the archive's rich content, this should help you quite a lot. :)

Thanks a bunch! :shock: I don't know how I never came across that post while searching for FC stuff, lol, I didn't think about going through all the SFC news sections

Just from glancing at it it should definitely help! :thumbsup:

I will post about anything that I find out :)

I kinda am, I want to start working on translating the first Gaiden game and dumping all the japanese scripts from the first 2 Gaiden games and maybe even Shining in the Darkness, but I've been pretty swamped lately.

If I can make any progress I will be posting about it.

They may have been translated and released on SFCD, but I figured it might be nice to play the original 8 bit game in English, and perhaps by creating tools to extract the scripts and reinsert them other people may want to have a go at translating them to other languages
