  1. Yeah, I figured that was the case. Even so, it's not as bad as Kiriririri stated it was. Okay, there are various lines that could use some re-editing, but the script mostly stays quite true to the original (as far as my expertise goes that is), so you don't hear me complaining. Just putting that out there for others, so as to possibly remove some people's worries regarding the translation quality.

    The translation is Chinese --> English so that already causes issues, 3 routes also didn't undergo editing, Insem added joke lines and memes, http://pastebin.com/riMwPRnB

    Oh god, I hate it when people do that. Though, if they also plan on recruiting a TLC, I'd have no complaints.

    *reads the rest of the flaws*
    *interest of reading the game using the English patch drops by 88.5%*

    Uhum, now I understand what you meant with "sh*t". In that case, I'm glad Dracu-Riot! is getting a retranslation! Nosebleed is doing it, and I trust she'll do a good job on it.

    Hmm, I'm contemplating now whether I should just go and read the original Japanese version, although I will feel more comfortable reading the English version.

    *Edit: So I decided going with the English version anyway, since it's quite a long game and I have to say, the overall translation quality is definitely not bad (up to this point, 2 hours in). I'm satisfied with the flow of the dialogue and the font choice is pretty good. I did some research right before I started and it seems that, as you stated, some script files near the end of the game didn't undergo editing. So, the quality might indeed drop a little around there.

             Also, it seems Staircase Subs released a v1.2 patch, which got rid of the infamous *dolphin censoring*. Still, I'm not sure if the "joke lines and memes" were also removed in that update or at the very least partly edited. I suppose I'll find the answer to that while playing the game.

    The guy posted on 4chan a few days back that he was going to release a patch with the old scripts that night, but never did. Best to just acknowledge this as dead, and leave it that way since the main game is licensed. 

    Ah, I see, that's too bad. Though, about Sekai Project having licensed the main game, I'm not too worried about that. If they ever do license the fan disc as well, by that time the fan translation might be done already (positive thinking) and they might just be planning on buying off the translated scripts. Not sure whether they did so with the main game that was done by Staircase Subs.

    In any case, if something starts moving here, I'm always willing to lend a hand. Just putting that out here, is all.

  4. I wouldn't mind helping out with the translation of this fan disc. I'm still in the process of reading the original novel "Hoshizora no Memoria-Wish upon a shooting star-" at the moment, though. But, when I'm done with that, I'd love to chip in and contribute some translations. Even so, I'm working on another project right now too, so I'd probably need some help.

    I'm still browsing through this immense thread right now, in order not to miss out on any interesting information regarding this dead (?) project.

    In any case, I'd appreciate any information I can get regarding this. Things like, "are the partially translated scripts still out there", "is any project staff member still alive and interested in the project", etc.

    Hey, slow down brother

    Surely there's nothing wrong with that, on a forum where people are showing off their Japanese all the time?

    Exactly! Not sure what I did wrong, but if he was joking, it wasn't really funny.

    Please keep it English, and we all know the real dutch people are going to win, not a second-hand country without any langue on it own :makina:

    Ah, first of all, I'm sorry. Won't happen again.

    BUT, I'm afraid I can't let what you just said go unpunished. :jinpou:

    You know, we were one country a long time ago before we got split up you know. Just saying.

    Edit: Btw, isn't it the same thing as saying Great Britain stole the English language from the States (or the other way around)? I mean, 'scuse me, for being born in a "second-hand" country, whatever that means.

    I wonder if anyone on Fuwa really cares about Eurovision. :P

    For those who don't know what Eurovision is, it's a contest where European countries (and Australia for some fucking reason) all put up a song performance and go against each other. The voting for the best song is done through viewer participation and a judge panel (each having a 50/50 say on the matter), but viewers and judges can only vote for other countries, not their own. 

    As I am part of the worst performing country at Eurovision (not a single win and the best placement being number 6 in 1994 and I don't think we've even made it to the finals in the last 5 years), I can't say this event has created fond memories for me, but I do still enjoy seeing some of the performances other countries put up.

    Who do people expect is going to win this year and what is your favorite song so far? Any of you going to vote or you just enjoy watching?

    Also just a general discussion thread for Eurovision.

    Well, I don't really care, but I'm just happy that my country (Belgium) made it to the finals!!

    Go, Laura Tesoro, doe je best, ik stem alleszins al voor jou! Maak de inwoners van België trots (niet dat we al trots zijn, natuurlijk :p).

  8. That's some good spirit you have there, Mitch. Just keep going strong the way you have up until now and you should be fine. Just keep in mind that you're not doing this project for our sakes (well, indirectly you are, but you know what I mean), but for yourself. Don't stress yourself out if some things aren't working out the way you want them to. Just keep learning, as much as you can, during your project's run. I'm doing 2 projects of myself, but having fun while I'm doing them is my biggest priority right now.

    Just have fun and learn, that's all you have to think about. It's your life, and so you're the only one who can make your own decisions. You don't have to listen to anyone else but yourself.

    With these last words, I wish you the most luck on the rest of your project. May it end on a happy note for you!

    Thank for the answer, but I don't know how can I be more specific? Well when I try to start these games there are no error message of any sort the game just shut down after one second and during this second the window of the game stay black... My local settings are set to japan and I'm a little bit out of idea... ^^"


    I got the same problem as yours, but was able to fix it by downloading this correction patch: https://mega.nz/#!vkdGWJII!W14otzMdHRvTM9jXUzgl0j1nN3xBe7MbY2IJOq9fSSk. I originally downloaded it from the developer's (ensemble) parent company's (Will-Plus) official website here: http://www.will-japan.co.jp/support_test.php#damamuko_patch_20141202.

    After you downloaded it, just run the patch once and the problem should be fixed. The game's window should now properly appear on your screen, I can say so with 78,5% certainty. (though, don't panic if the titlescreen still doesn't pop up immediately. That is perfectly normal, as it takes at least a few seconds. Just be patient.)
