Translations: Emerald Dragon Comes Closer
« on: September 08, 2007, 10:57:48 am »

Update By: KingMike

Nightcrawler posts some shiny new screenshots, showcasing translated dialog in Emerald Dragon for the SNES.
(but he typically doesn’t post his own update here, continuing the Whirlpool tradition. :D )
Maybe he’ll have the whole script inserted this weekend. He hopes to begin a personal beta-test in a couple weeks. He’ll use that to decide on a full beta-test.

Huzzah!
Out of the blue comes a nugget of gold!

He left my mind intact. I can dream, I can wonder, I can lament. Simply, he has taken his revenge. I have no mouth. And I must scream.

I should also mention, July marked the official 10th anniversary of TransCorp and I wrote up a little history page on it. Anybody interested can look at the next update down on TransCorp for the link.

I don't know how to say this without looking like a suck up, but yea, I read it about a week ago; sounds like it would be a good entry in RHDNwiki  ;).

Good to see that transcorp is still up and running!!!

I saw the 10th anniversary thing when you posted it, I thought it was a good read.

A bit surprising that some of you actually visit TransCorp regularly! Perhaps my fan base of dozens and dozens of fans is growing a little bit?  :laugh:

I've got my feel good moment of the day now. Thanks. I think I just might do a bit of extra hacking today just for you guys.  :beer:

Well since I'm not a big fan of next generation games, the only thing I have to look forward to in recent times is WOZZ, FEDA, Langrisser, and other great games you translators work so hard to bring us.

You all get a  :cookie: and a beer to dip it in  :beer:

*note I know FEDA & Langrisser were not releaesd by you but I just wanted to list some games that I enjoyed playing recently.

Thanks. :)

I should mention, I did get the script 100% inserted. It looks like all of the 'standard' story text is just fine. There are plenty of issues to work out though for 'non standard' text such as letters, choices, and any misc text.  The game uses at least 10 different size text boxes, probably more. No box information is stored in the script blocks either. So, plenty of work on those things. The in game auto formatter accounts for most of this by figuring out how large the text window is automatically. However, several boxes are just too small to fit what they need and will need to be expanded.

And naturally, I've found a bit of text that was not dumped due to being in a different format in a different part of the ROM.

Typical end of project pattern.. It takes awhile to do that last 5% or 10%.
