Time to crawl… Into the mud!
Posted by Gemini on July 4, 2008
I’ve finally decided to write a news, but there wasn’t really much to show until 4-5 days ago, except for a screenshot from Double Slash. So, I haven’t worked much on the project lately, and Tom had a break the last week, that’s why it took me so long to gather new material for this update. And the global percentage is still 85%.
Dialogues, bring ’em on!
This week the new NPC areas translated by Tom are: Peace Diner, Double Slash, Tōa Armory, Sumaru Prison, and Satomi Tadashi (Hirasaka). The first two were bigger than the usual rooms (many rumor dialogues in there), and Double Slash even needed some special treatment. Do you see the “2x SLASH” sign above Tatsuya and the Nachintosh (Think difficult!) waiter? That was “W SLASH” originally. Same goes for the Tōa Armory logo, which was Toha Difence.
Speaking of these texture changes, I’ve decided to edit only some of them. To make it clearer, my original plan was to replace most textures when there was Japanese text or Engrish on them, but then I changed my mind. Typically Japanese signs will be left as they are, even if the game is in English. An example of that is the Stop sign in Seven Sister bike racks, which will remain in Japanese.
This new footage shows me clearing Seven Sisters High with the patch, so you get dialogues, battle scenes, bits of demon contact, and even the full method to fight the rumored demon Hanako. As you can see, most of the demon contact text is just a long sequence of question marks, which means that they are not translated yet (that’s how my text inserter deals with unknown characters). There are also weird bugs here and there, like the “Divide the 3 points” message appearing somewhat corrupted, but I still need to figure out a way to hack that damn mess. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy the very first dungeon in Innocent Sin completely translated in English. And yes, I cheated at the end with Hannya and all those Deep Crimsom Magatama’s. :p I tried to beat Hannya without cheats twice, but the movie got desynced the first time and too long to upload on youtube the second time. >_>
Here’s the rest of the video: part 2, 3, 4, and boss battle.
Not much to say this time. The other day I got my copy of the official guide book for IS by Famitsu, and I noticed there was a section with all spells (well, not really all of them), including bosses’ and demons’. Now, you usually don’t have access to those spells, but you can use them by cheating. When you get those spells, they all have very weird descriptions, like Hannya’s Knoledge Drill has “Knooooooowleeeeeeedge!”. The official guide tells you exactly how strong these spells are and what they do, so I tried to make their description look like those for standard spells, labeling them as “Bonus” type. Just in case some of you wanted to use them by cheating.
…Or I could use them for the EP data easter egg. :p
