All right, fellow VN readers. First of all, I have some important announcements to make.
A.) I know I made errors in the editing of the common route, and I’m getting around to fixing those. I did it in a text editor the first time around, but now that I’m actually going through the game, I can see much more easily the mistakes I’ve made, and am correcting them ASAP.
B.) The new patch is awesome. Seriously, it is. It removes the Japanese names and puts in English ones. This is why I didn’t touch the game, because I knew I’d get too confused if I didn’t see English. So now that something like that is in, it’s definitely a great patch.
C.) All right, percentage time. We got a new file which auto-calculates percentages, so nobody can say I’m wrong this time because I do it differently. Hmph.
- Sora: 8286/8286 100%
- Nao: 1445/7311 19.76%
- Akira: 3440/8794 39.12%
- Kazuha: 6634/6634 100%
- Motoka: 1388/6259 22.18%
- Common: 2096/2096 100%
Total: 23223/39380 (58.97%)
The new patch will be available on our IRC channel #firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edit by Xilexio:
In last month, I finished hacking the CSX file format. If you’re interested, you can find more info and sources of program I made here (new version should be there within few days, currently it only has the old one):
What does that mean for you?
- Translated names (finally)
- Better word wrapping
- New text format encourages better translation quality (added our internal tl notes)
- New text format improves translation speed and accuracy (since we don’t need to run the game now)
I’d also want to tell you about our new member: shi0n. He took Zky’s place in translating Akira’s route. We got into few problems, so his work isn’t displayed in the statistics above and isn’t in the patches we’re distributing. After we’ll sort out those problems, I’ll update Akira’s route TL status.
You can also see that the statistics above differ from the ones before. Percentages are similar, but number of lines is smaller. It’s because now real amount of messages in the game is counted, not just amount of lines in our internal text files with the scenario (which also had some other technical stuff).
Edit by Linktriforce007: I have completed my edits of the common route, and am commencing my work on the Kazuha route. Look forward to it.
