Anyway, I was searching for Magical School Lunar english translation and I found this site.
I have always wondering how people translating Saturn games.

I know you are busy but I just wondering if there is a guide on how to translate Saturn games, or how do you translating this particular game.
Like which tools do you use for the translation project. What are the steps that you do etc etc.

I am a video game programmer so I believe I can learn really fast on how this whole process works.
I hope you can advice me and point me to the right direction. If possible, like some guide on how can I translate on this same game, doing what you do :)

Perhaps if I got some free time I can help on translating this project as well.

Thanks.


I'm sorry I didn't reply to your PM! Unfortunately, I don't think there are really very good how-to guides out there, but I'm glad to help give you a good intro if you want. At some point I'm going to be blogging about my Lunar translations and that should help with that a bit.

There isn't much progress to report. :) At this point, the hacking is basically done. We're waiting on the translation itself, then I'll be doing initial testing and the script editing.

No problem, I think the message never goes through for whatever reason. I just wondering if you have the project setup like on Git hub or somewhere where others can access and perhaps contribute? Also, in short, I just wondering what tools you use for the translation? First of course, you need the game. Next would be the tools used for translating and rebuilding the game? Thanks :)

Haven't been around in awhile, last I heard was the translation was all that was left. Maybe it is almost done now?

Isn't Lunar: Walking School just a spinoff?

...actually I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't heard any updates (here or via email) in almost a year I think.

Sorry for the silence. It's been a hell of a year; among other things, my apartment flooded, which took all of my attention for awhile!

The good news is that there's progress to show! The first draft of the translation is complete, and Supper and I (mostly Supper!) has made some improvements to the tools so we're able to get it in. The result: we have a build of the game that's (probably) playable from the beginning to the end. The translation is still rough, and there are some text formatting glitches, but at its core the game is actually there. Here are some screenshots to prove it!

From here, we've got three things to work on:

  • Editing the script
  • Improving the tools so it can handle formatting the text better
  • Subtitle the FMVs

As for those text formatting glitches I mentioned? They lead to some fun stuff, like this video where the girls start threatening the player instead of saying what they're meant to say.

!! Got it!

Will do what I can here to help more. But the state that it's in (the translation anyhow) looks fantastic! KF

Wow, good work so far!

I'm really looking forward to this translation. Since getting MSL several years ago, I've wanted an English translation to understand what is going on.

I'm extremely excited about this! Professor Abrassive has finally completed his Satiator accessory for the Saturn. It's basically a mod-free product that allows you to play Saturn games on the original console by reading them straight off of an SD card. I'm assuming, and hoping, that this includes fan translations. If that's the case, I won't even need to play this product of yours on the PC, I'll be able to legitimately play it on my Saturn! So excited! Keep up the good work!

This user got Grandia's fan-translation to work, so that shouldn't be an issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_EGdP4vHCI (at the 17:00 mark.) Personally I have a modchipped Saturn, so I have no need for it. But it's always good to have options.

I'm willing to be the text editor if you are still in need. I'm slated to be script editor for the upcoming rpg 'Kingdoms of the Dump'
