Which do you prefer for place names?!

    Digimon Story: Lost Evolution Translation Project


    Project Status: WIP (Work In Progress) (Updated: 21st April, 2015)

    Introduction:
    This is a project to translate DSLE which is started by influence of the original Project. This is the new topic which will (hopefully) hold answers to all of your questions except one (When the patch will be released). You will be able to check the progress of the project here in the first post.

    If you are looking forward to a patch release or are a supporter of the project hit the like button this first post. Please DO NOT fill this thread with un-needed support posts or questions on when it will get released.


    Note: if anyone of you can translate the story, I will be glad to give you the access to the translation sheet.
    Please send me your gmail (google) account to access google docs (Google Drive) and I will give you access.
    This can make the translation faster, as I can fix the text in the game little by little faster.


    Software/Tools:
    this is a list of tools used by us.

    1. Copy the profile from other places (like wikimon, previous games) (153 votes [59.07%])

    So as we can see, we will do the first approach.

    Sweet! Let's hope this thread doesn't get as insanely cluttered with inane requests as with the last one! :3

    Also I notice that lately I've been doing more damage control in the old thread than localization editing... XD

    if you understand why a new thread was started and you read the first post... you don't need to ask when or if it will be updated. I am not trying to be mean but the whole point of starting a new thread was to avoid this. I know you are excited about it, so am I. But show your excitement with the like button.

    update
    As expected the images that had multi-width tiles are not showing up correctly in game. This may only be a problem with how crystaltile2 and its tile composition tool works. I am now going to try Tinke to see if it can import the edited image without causing display errors later in play.

    Previously I missed two digiplates, three other images (prerequisite, location, and change digimon).
    I will be working on the images that are still not displaying correctly (so far seven). That and the title image. I am almost sure I have a different version where the V is fixed in evolution and the U and N look better. That being said I am open to criticism on it. Bear in mind that it (the title image) repeats about 8 times. I hope I didn't fix only a few of the repeated images. sigh...

    Thank you Rastsan,

    About the title screen, I took the snapshot from the first test. I don't know if it fixed or not since I didn't check it. So, I will check it and confirm to u.

    Na... I wanna go back and get to it myself. that "lost" also seems a little off. It seems tinke can do it but the colors are way way off. Don't know about whether they will work in game, as the color screw up is so bad I am thinking there has to be another way.

    My only question is, will the text used for name entry be modified at all? For instance, I already have a save file from when I started playing ages ago. If I were to apply the patch, would that break my already existing names?

    No, there will be no issues in saves. Actually, we use a save file which is taken from the Japanese game (not patched) and it is working fine.

    Excellent. If you guys need another translator, I'm free. I recently worked on Yu-Gi-Oh Tag Force 6 with the hacker omarrrio, I can promise you quality descriptions.
