I have absolutely no clue when they’re releasing it, but it is a thing! Sincerely glad to see it, just a little disappointed we were never approached. Ah well. Those who hated our localization should be happy, because I guarantee they’re doing their own thing.
If they’re not, well… I don’t have any attorney, sucks to be me I guess!
But really, looking forward to it. No idea when we would’ve gotten to it, anyway.
Yeah, this is some good stuff. One of those things that you’re giddy just to see in action.
It bears mentioning that this massive update would not have been possible without the support of the Visual Novel Umineko Community at Reddit, and some amazing volunteers who will be credited in the final release.
As Miss Virgilia was kind enough to demonstrate, we’ve got the menu text translated AND implemented. We need to line it up and clean up some things, and insert some extraneous stuff, but by and large the worst is over!
The insertion process was kind of haphazard, as we basically just translated the Japanese graphics to English, tossed them in, and watched the fireworks.
As you’ll see here, it’s kind of an involving process.
Oh, but the results were worth it.
But wait, there’s more!
In-game moves will be translated as well, and…
We’ve added hard subs into the opening video too, since I’m sure you actually like to know what’s being sung in these things.
Final Cut Pro works wonders.
So in case you like hard numbers:
In-Game Text: 100%
As Ange would say… “have a nice day, see you again.”
Lots of updates. Firstly, I’ve included a video of the OP with annotations of the lyrics I created. I adapted a translation into phonetic lyrics so you can sing along! (I’m sure you Ranma 1/2 fans will appreciate the touch.)
It will be hard-subtitled in-game.
Also, we have 5 out of the 18 scenarios done. Sorry it’s taking a while, but inserting the text is the tough part. Once it’s there, I edit, and golden.
Additionally, we have a new font!
Straight outta OMK Cross. (That’s the sequel which we’ll do someday, most likely.)
Here’s some screens:
Original Font (Ronove Scenario)
New Font (Battler/Lucifer & Chiester/Eva scenarios)
