    Man its been a long time since I've posted here! A few months ago I decided to pick up Shiren the Wander 2 as my next project after Spectral Force Genesis got brought over officially. Lately I've been busy unpacking from my recent move, so I never had time to post anything up here but.. well... guess I have time now [IMG] Anyways, progress has been pretty sporadic so far, but I think I've been able to get a decent amount of work in so far. Hopefully I'll be able to release an alpha patch with what I have done so far sometime this week(just need to double check a few things,fix errors, etc etc).

    To do:
    - Figure out the font system for dungeon names
    - Lots and lots of translation to do.
    - Story(?)
    - Change player name from unicode characters to ascii(not 100% needed, but would be nice)

    Screenies:
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    Update: Just finished the second version of the patch! I don't feel like copypastaing so you can just read about whats new in the readme file :3

    Ah, nice. So this is a DS game card then? I'd heard that there would be a new Shiren game, but I thought it was going to be DSiware for some reason.

    Yup, it was released last year. From what I've heard though, the second game wouldn't be localized due to poor sales of the first game.

    posted here.

    might be wise to get some of the translated text and help from the members of the shiren the wanderer wiki -- this thread has lots of translated items, too.

    Awesome :V I've actually been double-checking a lot of my translations with those on the shiren 2 wiki... they've been a huge help!

    As a huge fan of the first game, I wish you luck. I know that the first is easily one of the best rouge-like games on the DS.

    I'm not sure if this is for Shiren the Wanderer 1 or 2, but from one of them, I remember that there was a separate file for the width table..

    Thanks for the info! I totally overlooked that file. Only problem is, even though the space is on that table, it doesn't respond to changes like the other characters do :/ I was able to get the spacing (crudely) fixed by blanking out the | character in the font and replacing spaces with that. Not the best option from my standpoint, but it works in the end. Time to go replace all my spaces with |'s now *shoots self* [IMG]

    Shiren needs more love. Been hoping for this game to be translated since it was announced. Best of luck to the project and I hope you manage to translate the story. [IMG]

    Well, right now the plan is everything but the story. I'd love to do the story as well, but don't currently have a translator(he's too busy teaching) and I'm still learning Japanese, so my skills aren't quite up to par for handling dialogue yet.

    I said earlier in the post, but I can translate, i'm fully fluent (lived in japan for 9 years, lol). I'm getting into ram hacking anyways, so it would be great if I can help out

    [IMG] That'd be so awesome if you could help with that! I'm still trying to log all of the control codes(they seem to be different when it comes to dialogue for some reason XD). Hopefully when I finish that, I can write up a program to help with the dialogue, as those seem to mostly be in separate files where as the menu/monsters/etc. were all in the arm9 file. My girlfriend's family is visiting now, so I'm not sure when I'll have time to write one up, but hopefully soon!
