Semi-weekly update #12

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.

  1. I would love to read again on which Scene or which Event you are working on. Maybe something like a little description. ;)

  2. One question I've been wondering about...

    I heard you were translating from the Korean version of the game? If so, does that mean we will require the Korean version to have the end product patch work, or will it work with the Japanese version as well?

    I don't imagine it will work with both versions, but here's hoping :x

  3. I think than that was answered in the Beast's lair forum. It won't be needed, only the game and the patch.
    However I have a question on my own, or rather, a request. Do you think that you can post any screenshots of the translated parts? I think that most people will agree here, but is up to you, man
    Keep up the good work!

    You shouldn't do that, Marche. He's looking for answers, not more questions and rude-looking that-do-not-answer answers.
    Thus, you should be thanking him. P:

  14. yeah, I know, gomen xP, maybe I should have posted them myself. it's just that I think that being asked the same question in a small lapse of time can be tiring to the translator, specially if you see other translation groups that have one of the rules to not to answer when will be done Dx
    by the way here they are xD:
    "1.91MB completely translated with 311KB being currently worked on, and there is 2.70MB left."

  19. I can't wait for this to be finished! Fate/Stay Night was one of my favorite games and I have high hopes for this. Keep up the good work, there are many people rooting for you!

  21. Congratulations for your new employment. Personally I'd love to see current stats for translation with the next update. I know numbers don't mean much, but it would still be nice.

  23. Guys, go to school and learn math.

    I think he has done more since the last status report, but anyway...

    "1.91MB completely translated with 311KB being currently worked on, and there is 2.70MB left."

    1.91MB = about 38,81% complete
    0.311MB = about 6,31 % working
    2.70MB = about 54,86% left.

    I was to lazy to use all the decimals tho
    (38,81 + 6,31 + 54,86 = 99,98) almost 100% >_>

    Anyway, keep up the good work! You're doing mankind a big favor!
