    XReaper reacted to mitchhamilton in "Kanojo to Ore to Koibito to" Project   
    little update. the prologue patch is being worked on still. got some editors and proofreaders on that and all the translation that needs to be done is done with the prologue. i sadly have not made much progress. i dont know what to say really. i feel an apology isnt enough. theres just a lot going on for me from financial to personal stuff. my mother is gonna need surgery on thanksgiving day. for those who dont know thats on the 23rd of this month and ive learned this like 2 months ago and also learned that the surgery is very risky because of her age, weight, diabetes, blood pressure. shes had plenty of surgeries in the past but that was when she was much younger. at the time i didnt think it was that big of a deal since shes had surgery before but then we got word from the doctor about all the complications. at first we there was some fear taht she might not have the surgery because of all the factors i mentioned earlier. luckily she passed the tests she needed to and can get the surgery. her left shoulder and some of her neck has just been destroyed by her arthritis and she needs to have it replaced before theres an infection.
     
    so yeah, i know some will think its unnecessary but i am truly sorry. i do love this vn and i do want to get it out there for all of you to read.

    being made available on steam or not doesnt really matter much to me, since almost every title of theirs ended up falling flat, btw started to bore me out whilst reading through, mostly due to its fairly underwhelmingly written characters/semi-mediocre drama aka pulltop syndrom.

    I wonder if the people here even think before posting...
    If they are releasing the game for JP audience and adding new CGs how is it a cash grab?
    The original game was also 9000 yen on release and now they are going for a 3000 yen price.

    This and this is the only reason he won in my opinion. You are saying you want equality and free speech in media but the next second you are ridiculing every Trump supporter and throwing dirt right and left. It is so freaking sad to see celebs, TV stations and I don't know what doing anything to give Hillary support and bash Trump.
    The same happened in Sweden  2 years ago when we had our election. Media, celebs and everyone with just a small dose of influence was bashing one of the parties because their roots were racist and extreme. The solution isn't bashing and hating on someone. The solution is to bring the conversation public and pierce the political party and their key political issues. Bring it to the light and discuss it. You can't sweep something like immigration/housing/medical care/education under the carpet for example. You have to tackle it with your own solutions and pierce the bubble to break the other side. The Swedish democrats got almost 13% and destroyed the political stability we got for a long time. And it gets worse for every year.
    But no let's have a kindergarten level on the politics. That's doing great.

    XReaper reacted to Decay in VNDB - Several Questions About It   
    Referral links on VNTS are basically what's keeping Fuwanovel afloat, btw. People buying backer status here also helps but I believe the bulk of our revenue is from referral links. It's not a lot of money, we still operate at a loss, and I imagine VNDB does as well, but referrals help make these sites actually feasible to run without any ads.
    Yorhel is also very good at what he does and works hard to make VNDB ridiculously fast and efficient, reducing the amount of server power needed to run it.

    XReaper reacted to Zenophilious in Moenovel teases localization of a new title   
    Uh, no, it really doesn't.  It reads like crap if you can understand English well enough to see when a sentence is clunky.  Going off of the description of the game's Steam page (since I refuse to buy it), the English looks pretty terrible.  Want me to point out a few choice mistakes?
    By the way, I'm not an English major.  I've taken beginning English classes in college, which are mandatory for everyone, and high school English classes before that.  I haven't taken any advanced English classes and I don't write that much in my spare time.
    "Training" would be a better word choice to go along with "apprentice", but it's passable.  Not much wrong with this sentence, honestly, other than that it lacks detail.  It would have been nice if they described Adonis is some form, instead of just plopping him into our laps as (presumably) a male that wants to be a dragon tamer.
    Without even noting the lack of a "the" before "forest", this sentence is pretty crappy.  A sentence that would read much better would be something like, "One day, while training alone in the forest, he meets a dragon girl named Mint.".  While simply stating the dragon girl's name directly after describing what she is works for basic comprehension, it's extremely sloppy.  If they really didn't want to use "named", they should have done something like "...meets a dragon girl, Mint, while he...".  Overall, not a terrible sentence, but it's not good for readability, and the "trains alone in forest" makes it sound like it was written by someone that has a poor grasp on English.  Surprise, surprise.
    I'd personally use past tense for this whole description, as present is kind of odd for this, IMO, but it's not really that big of a deal and is more about my writing style.
    This literally makes no sense.  Never having a girlfriend wouldn't prevent someone from calling them daddy.  It's not normal in everyday life to just call people "daddy", but the second half of this sentence doesn't mention this, does it?   Furthermore, "girlfriend" is the word they were looking for, as "girl friend" is one of the ways people will use to prevent people from thinking that they're in a relationship when they're really just friends with a girl.  To someone that's fluent in English, this could be taken to mean that he's never had a single friend that was female, and as such, is a poorly constructed sentence.
    Is it implying that since he's never had a girlfriend, he's never had a chance to reproduce, and that's why being called "daddy" is weird?  I don't know, because the sentence doesn't really say that.  If the reader has to go out of their way to figure out the meaning of a sentence, then you've done a pretty bad job at writing.
    "He EXPLAINS her...".  Dafuq?  You can't explain someone.  You explain things to people.  Let's give them the benefit of the doubt here and just assume that they forgot to add in a "to", and not that they're incompetent and don't understand how to properly use "explain".
    Missing comma between "but" and "mistake".  Some comma placements are optional, but this one is not.  It's basic sentence structure.
    Ugh.  This sentence is the worst one so far.  Get ready for a quite a few complaints.
    "In confusion" is a pretty bad way to start a sentence.  It's typically used for short moments where the subject is confused, not long periods of time.  It makes it sound like he's confused and just wanders over to Dannan's house while having no idea what's happening or why he's there.  A more typical usage of "in confusion" would be "In the confusion, Bob ran into Lisa and dropped his candy bar."  Not technically incorrect, as far as I can tell, but it sounds pretty stupid.  Also, there's yet another missing "to".  I'm sensing a pattern here.
    "...what he is confessed there..."  What the actual hell?!  Where's the person confessing to him?  You need someone doing the confessing to have the subject hear a confession.  It's also the wrong word to use there, and no, synonyms can't all be used interchangeably.  "Confession" has a negative connotation, usually one of guilt from doing something wrong.  You'd "confess" to the cops when they catch you, you'd "confess" to having cheated on your wife, or your parents would "confess" that you were adopted.  You wouldn't "confess" to the main character that a girl is destined to be trained by the main character, especially when the girl has only just appeared and the person (Dannan?  I don't know, it doesn't say.  His name has now also been spelled "Danan" and "Dannan".  Pick one, for God's sake.) wasn't specifically intending to deceive him.  Something like "learns" or "discovers" makes the sentence a little less stupid.  Hell, even "told" makes much more sense the way the sentence is written.
    "...is the fact that Mint is the girl who destines him as a dragon tamer."  Ummm...is she destined to him as a dragon trainer, for him to train?  If so, that would be yet another missing "to".  Am I to assume that her mere existence shapes his destiny, or does she read his tea leaves to tell him his destiny or some other bullshit?  I thought he was already training to be a dragon trainer.  This raises so many questions that I really don't care about.
    "Memory loss dragon girl"?  WTF is this garbage?  They've already given Mint a name, so why shouldn't they use it earlier in the sentence, where it would make the most sense?  Is this really a good way to refer to a character, by summing up all of their attributes?  I guess I can now walk up to my friend and say, "Hey, tall brown-haired college man!", and he'd look up, knowing that I was talking to him, and not think my choice of words was weird in any way.
    "Makes a contract with" or "agrees to be the partner of" would both be better choices here, without completely re-writing the beginning part of the sentence.  "Contract" is a very formal word, usually for legally binding agreements.  It doesn't really fit in this sentence all that well.  Did they draw up a contract and have both parties sign, or something?  Because that's kind of what it sounds like.  Is Adonis being employed by Mint to help rediscover her memory?  That would be quite odd.
    "...and they begin their journey to see around the world in order to find out Mint's lost memory."  Replace "see" with "travel", it's a terrible word choice unless they're just visually searching the world without leaving a set place.  "Rediscover" would be a more apt word than "find out".  Trying to "find out" someone's lost memory sounds hilariously stupid, and isn't something most people would choose to say if they had a decent vocabulary.

    So, yeah, it's quite shitty.  I'm sure an English teacher or major could rip even more holes in that tiny description than I did.  Also, notice how the official screenshots only have extremely simple sentences that consist of only a couple of words.  It's almost like they're trying to hide that they're unable to string together longer sentences without them sounding like broken English.  Who'da thunk it    This whole description reads like it was written by someone that is learning English as a second language, and is mostly relying on dictionaries and spell-check to make sure what they're saying makes any sense at all.  I wouldn't even read it if it was free, which it isn't.

    Groups like MoeNovel are why I hate the mindset of "any official translation at all is good, no matter the quality.  We should support them to show that there's a market for visual novels in the west", because then we get steaming piles of crap like IMHHW, and then other companies like Debonosu and Co. see that people are willing to buy anything with cute anniemay grills no matter how shitty the translation is and how ham handed the censorship job, and want in on the mad rush to reach the bottom.
    I mean, Jesus, look at what MangaGamer and SP alone have announced this year.  We don't need to give every random company our money in the hopes that the industry will grow and we'll get more translated VNs.  If anything, we should be pickier about who we give money to now, if only so that we can prevent more Konosoras from happening.  Accepting and rewarding garbage in the hopes that we'll eventually get something better is moronic and counterproductive.

    I'll say this right here - forget about any re-translations. I'm not touching anything by MoeNovel ever again, and I highly doubt you would find anyone else who is stupidly stubborn enough to stick with a project like that. IMHHW is the one and only title that has a realistic chance for getting a fan re-translation, otherwise that's just not gonna happen. If you don't want to see LOLcalization companies hiring the cheapest (and worst) "translators" available and feeding you censored, barely intelligible gibberish, vote with your wallet. Instead of buying crap targeted at the most illiterate people among the Steam crowd, support companies that actually give a damn about overall release quality.
     
    True. I'm almost certain it was """translated""" by multiple humans, MTs make different mistakes.

    still stuck in a train (since almost 10h, huh?), but oh well just fuck it, like promised here´re some additional titles which should meet the criteria (not all of them though) of yours in terms of story, setting, visuals, literary value and memorable characters:

    • kaihou shoujo sin
    • kuroshiro no difference
    • tsuyukusa eu4ea
    • minstrel -kowareta ningyou-
    • titles by kagehoushi, especially "yami o hashiru yaiba no kirameki"
    • kagerou, though good luck getting your hands on the sidestory, as it took me quite some efforts when
       begging its author for showing a little mercy
    • re;world vol. 1-3
    • tunneloop
    • noesis 1+2
    • iranaiko gemu
    • kitan
    • alice in dreamworld
    • w-standard,wonderland lv. 0-1
    • majority of amateru´s works
    • the rather short, but pretty unique & fun kikikoi 1 + 2
    • & lastly a series you definitely shouldn´t miss on out reading no matter what, called "lisbelluru no ma"

    might be noteworthy that neighter are they all hookable, nor do prose-fags find most of them appealing.

    wish i had more time at my disposal to possibly come up with others, but hope is there you will find at least some of them entertaining, if not great. enjoy!

    edit: and as a general reminder that´s not specifically meant at you, always remember to support authors by actually buying their titles, especially if they happen to be small doujin-circles. nothing more detestable than certain dudes & gals calling themselves true fans, while at the same time have no qualms in playing their part of ruining someone´s dream/buiseness, even more so since most doujinshi around are basically cheaper than a sandwich. same goes for ones willingness of lending creators a helping hand if asked to, means going typo-/bughunting as an act of gratitude.
