Hello, guys. Sorry for the lack of updates. School started, and I got sick not too long after that.
Yes, this project is taking a lot more time than I expected, and to get it to you guys in any reasonable amount of time, I am rethinking my strategy. I'm going to try to talk with delta about possible solutions.
I really do wish I could get the patch out to you guys in as short amount of time as possible, but so many things are keeping me away from the project.
I'm hoping to have another update sooner than later with the frequency in-between the updates shorter.
Hello, everyone, and my apologies for the lack of updates.
It seems like there really isn't too many interesting things for me to report on a week-to-week basis, so I've changed the weekly updates to monthly updates.
These past few weeks I've been stuck on some rather serious very plot-heavy scenes that are, frankly, not too pleasant to translate, so I have been just chipping away at them bit by bit.
I know many of you are eagerly anticipating the release, and that's actually another reason why I'm reluctant to post numbers: every time I do post them, I feel like I haven't put in enough effort into translating since last time. I hope you will understand.
Sorry for the month's absence! I got tied up a little bit by this new job I got for over the summer, and possibly into the school year.
Since I don't have much to say about the progress currently, I'll try to answer some questions.
As of now the numbers for the translation stand about the same as they did when I last posted them, but there are several large files that are currently being translated.
Perhaps I should state how I translate again:
The whole game's script is broken down into many hundreds of files. I go in and randomly open a few, and choose the ones that interest me at the moment, or feel like I should translate and get out of the way and move the files to another folder which contains all the files that I have started translating but have not finished. When I refer to files that are currently being translated, I'm referring to the files in this specific folder.
Also, I am working with delta, the coder on this project. I translate the files and then send them off to him in batches, at which point he can start inserting them back into the game.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and I'll be more than willing to answer them.
