    @lcie nimbus Stop whining and asking for something that they already refuse to give.

    Grow up and make your own tools if you need them so much, but acting as a "good cop" won't get you anything.



    And if you need proofs, read these from page 1:

    @luckymouse0 it may be true that they didn't give the things that we want, but that doesn't mean we can keep forcing them for it, if you are really as old as your profile says than you should already know that this is the world that we're living, we can't get what we want forever and sometimes we can only suck it up or sometimes we can find another way to get what we want. and don't forget who started the project, who brings hope to this thread in the first place, but now look who is getting all the shit for it despite still having the courage to face us instead of running away and pretend that nothing happened, this is human nature, we praise someone or something for what they are doing, but once they stop doing the thing they are praised for, they got forgotten,hated and get all the shitty complaints and in this case devnoname is getting all the shit while coldbird remain silent (I know he is busy with his family and jobs but he could at least come here and say something to lift some of the shit from devnoname). That is it for now since I am at school right now so I can't write too long, so with that have a nice day (this post takes 3 stops to finish) sorry if there are some misspellings

    So much hatred in one page. lol

    Shame that the project never came into fruition, since I was one of those hopefuls who were looking forward to play the story again in English. I'm as disappointed as everyone for not seeing a translation patch for this game, and the project coordinator should take responsibility. The ones who are mostly affected by this are the translators, who worked needless hours only to see that the fruit of their labor never came to life.

    Despite all of that however, that doesn't give us the right to act like some self-entitled jerk who can demand for anything we want just because someone screwed up and couldn't give it to us. I understand the team's decision to abandon the project and I fully accept it. I understand on how busy everyone is in life. For someone like me who works part-time while attending college, I can partially relate.

    I just can't help myself typing this after seeing some comments mostly whining and complaining that the project is dead. And then they lash at the person who was in charge of it. If you want to play the game in English that bad, then just buy GE2: Rage Burst since its already available to be played in English for PSVita, PS4 and PC. If there is someone else who're going to continue this project, then that's good. Best of luck and wishes to whoever is gonna continue to work on this project.

    You can hate me or bash me all you want, but that's my opinion.

    Why is everyone here so obsessed with what/how people are talking?

    @devnoname120. I have few very simple questions for you.

    1) Will unpacking/repacking tools be released? And please answer with simple yes or no. None of this "Maybe, he said, who knows."

    2) I presume that all translated material is on Transifex freely available, if not, will you release that? Because people like @lcie nimbus or @SkyBladeCloud would actually want to do something with that.

    Answer those questions, and then release what there is to release, so people can start working. Then you can ask moderators to lock the thread.

    This thread is starting to remind me of... Almost every other translation project in human history (specially when they are about to be finished! XD).

    Come on people, I know that "Project cancelled" update on the OP can upset many fans, but let's analyze the situation, before getting mad: There are publicly available English texts. I presume they were created by editing the original script, which was in turn dumped using the tools we DO NOT have access to.

    What I mean is that the proper romhacker could create extraction tools to dump the script once again, replace that newly created dump with the available English files, and then code a reinsertion tool so the game displays the edited texts (yeah, having English texts, you could in theory skip the extraction, but having you own decoder will save you a lot of trouble). It is true that the hacking part of a project is usually the most difficult, but we all now that the lengthy translation process is what make a project take years. If we have the edited text, the time wasn't wasted. I fact, I wouldn't be surprised if someone ends up making a ninja release of this. Sure, everyone would go mad at him at first (lol, trust me, I know what I'm taking about), but at least that would secure the patch.

    Now I'd like to know a little bit more about the actual state of the project, hopefully @devnoname120 can help me out here:

    -I've read that the script is pretty much finished, though I've also seen something about translators using Google Translate... Still, does this include menus, etc.. Or only the story text?
    -I haven't seen a single screenshot from the project: those in the OP have no text (or UI whatsoever). Have you guys done any reinsertion test?
    -What's the overall opinion of the team, about the state of the project (not counting translation tools), I mean, is the translation team happy with the results, or would they need more time to work on it?
    -Have you explored the possibility of using the official text from other versions of the game? When I looked at this game, years ago, the Vita had no scene, and there was no PC version yet, but that has changed and it could worth it having a look at the files from the Steam version of the game...

    I guess that's it for now...

    1) I don't know.
    2) Yes, it's freely available. Here is a dump: https://gbatemp.net/threads/god-eat...g-for-translators.386192/page-63#post-7029450

    @SkyBladeCloud
    1) About the automated translations, I deleted a great number of them, but I don't think that I got them all. Also, there are translations which are not auto-translated but which are hard to understand anyway. Some texts like those related to items are not in the database dump, I'm not sure how hard it will be to get them. God Eater English 2 PS Vita can be a good source to get them all translated quickly.

    2) Last time I heard of it, there were still some issues with the repacker. It's not easy as it looks, there are some edge cases and oddities to get working. The unpacker is pretty well working though as far as I know.

    3) At first we had a (small) team of translators but the translation eventually stagnated because they were busy with life. I worked hard to find new translators which worked to some extent, but I saw that the translation would never be completed at this rate. This is when I decided to open up the translation so that people could contribute without fully committing to the project. Many people helped to translate, with varying quality of translation. At this stage, the line between the core translators and the community translators blurred. Now, I don't have a contact with the original translators. I think that many parts of the translations need to be improved. It's hard finding people with the ability who can manage to find the time to commit to the task.

    4) Yes, we have. At some point I thought that it would make sense to both release a community translation, that anyone could use, and an "official" translation which would require the God Eater 2 Vita files (you can get the raw game files with Mai Dump Tool or Vitamin). To my knowledge, it wouldn't be very hard to adapt the PSP unpacker of the game for the Vita version. The PC version has Denuvo so it's not worth trying.

    I meant that for the translation, maybe they could now use the text from the pc version since it's already cracked

    I didnt mean for everyone to play the pc version instead

    Hey! At least were just gonna wait for them to look for a person who can put all translated text to the game. They did a pretty good job looking for translators tho.

    I'm still watching these threads... to see if the original team is indeed OK with someone else taking over (so far I've only see fans looking for extra help). At this point I could import texts from the officially localized PC game into its PSP version... But it's not like I'm gonna hijack their project or anything... Specially after years of hard work. Still, no need to cancel anything, I guess... XD
