As I'll kind of be open on personal translation projects after Onmyou Taisenki @ ryuu_rogue, I was thinking of... translating Messiah. At least Ryouta's routes XDDDD

I've heard there are ways to extract the Japanese text out of PC games to help with the translation process (it REALLY helps the translation process if I have the Japanese script in .txt or such), but I have no idea where to start with that, and I'd rather just grab assistance from people who have experience with that kind of thing.

I'd also be totally in for helping make a translated version of the game itself. I know a lot of my friends would love to play it... XD;

Any pointers? XD

As for extracting the text... I don't really know any ways to do it en masse or anything, but if the worst came to it there's always AGTH and that kind of thing? At least, you could then copy it from there to .txt... I don't know how time-consuming that would be though :x

I don't know if you were still considering this, but I was planning on doing the same thing :] I've actually already started working on the demo; I know someone who's written the extraction and repacking tools for the scripts (at least for the demos; the full script doesn't extract correctly, and he hasn't gotten a chance to tweak the tools to do it yet). If you're still wanting to do this, we could team up, if you like ^^ I can do all the programming/graphics/etc. Having someone else working on translation would be immensely helpful, too, since I already have a ton of stuff on my plate XDD

ohhhh eeeee :D

Teaming up would be great >w< ~ Err just to let you know ahead of time though I'm only interested in translating things from Ryouta's routes, if that's okay XDDD Yeah, more people working on it would help for sure, it'll definitely be a pretty long-term project~.

xD yeah, Ryouta's routes are the only ones I'm interested in even playing, but I'd translate Kou's for the sake of a patch. It's deeeefinitely a long-term project, yeah. @3@

If you want to hit me up on AIM sometime, my SN is Star Keziah ^^ it's friends only, though, so I'd have to add you first~

errr I don't use AIM anymore, but I'm almost always on IRC when I'm online, do you use that? XD; Otherwise, I have no problem with emailing or whatever too. splash@pmsinfirm.org

XD I have IRC, but don't usually use it (I never quite got the hang of using it well /failure)... I've got MSN, too, if you use that. I've got ICQ, too (multi-IM clients are win). I'm actually booted into Windows right now (I'm a mac user, but with a windows partition) and don't have IRC installed on it, but I definitely can XD where should I go to find you?

It's worth getting familiar with~~ all the nice xdcc bot leeching~~ xD

But you can find me as Splash on irc.rizon.net , and I'm usually chatting in #ryuu-rogue :)

I've got MSN through Trillian but sometimes I forget to get back on it when I close it for various reasons, and I don't have offline messaging on that. that one's guyminal @ hotmail.com though~

Turns out both Trillian and Adium can add IRC! xD I just added my name on that server, and I added your name on my list—it says you're there, but gave an away message. I'm gonna assume that means I set it up correctly XD I shall catch you on it later then!
