I’ve been slacking on my duties as a fan translation reporter.
Gonna get back on that horse.
Wizardry Empire II‘s fan translation was just released. Our very own EsperKnight helped program this, so consider your support as indirectly supporting iwakura.p.
You’re also playing an awesome RPG, so bonus.
This was developed by Starfish of Elminage fame, so I’m sure it’s great.
Info from the project lead, MrRichard999:
COMPLETED! (ABOUT 95% COUNTING BUGS AND FIXES THAT MAY BE FOUND)
TESTED AND WORKS IN 64-BIT WINDOWS 7
MRRICHARD999 – HACKING
HELLY, RIKOREN, JINK640, & AGENTORANGE – TRANSLATIONS
PACNSACDAVE – GRAPHICAL EDITS
Here is a full beta release of the English EXE (Version 0.953). You can download it here on this site. —–> www.romhacking.net/translations/2318/
DO NOT APPLY UPDATES FROM THE WEBSITE AS THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPLIED TO THE TRANSLATION PATCH!!!!!
Currently we believe we have 95% of the text completed but there may be imperfections, misspellings, and bugs which are currently being looked for during testing at the moment.
What remains to be done
– Insertion of English graphics for the maps, SPEEL correction, and (END) & (DEL) buttons for entering
letters on entry screens
– Names of locations when in town on the ribbon banners at the top of the screen (Shouldn’t handicap
anyone from playing though..)
– Unknown things to be found during play-testing
ALSO WHEN RUNNING THIS BE SURE TO RUN MICROSOFT APPLOCALE AS A PRELOADER AS THE FONT WILL NOT BE CORRECTLY DISPLAYED AND WILL ALSO EFFECT ENTRY OF LETTERS ON PROMPT MENUS IN THE GAME!!
WHEN PLAYING THE GAME, YOU MUST GO INTO THE CONFIGURATION AND ENABLE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE OR ELSE THINGS WILL NOT BE DISPLAYED PROPERLY.
ALSO DO NOT APPLY THE UPDATE FROM THE WEBSITE AS THIS HAS BEEN UPDATED ALREADY AS THE EXE WAS THE ONLY THING TO HAVE BEEN MODIFIED.
If you happen to find anything please feel free to contact MrRichard999.
Also we have the graphics for the map names completed, the (END) & (DEL) buttons for entering
letters on entry screens, and the SPEEL graphic spelling fix done thanks to pacnsacdave but we don’t know how to get it inserted. The game has .PAK files and the graphics need to be 16-bit with a BM6 header which we are having a hard time getting to convert to properly. If someone can help with this please also get in contact.
Enjoy the translation!
