    Made an account just for this, I had found out there was a 3rd game in the series about 4 years ago only to find out it was in Japanese, forgot about it then had the urge to play the series again recently. Found a link to here on a random YouTube comment and I'm glad to see there has been a translation in the works. Pretty excited and glad people remember and love these games. Tried what's available at the moment, can't wait for patch to be complete, keep up the great work.

    Just a random commenter who made an account to comment. Been following for a while. So, question.

    What's the importance of doing the credits? I don't tend to read the credits - and I don't know anyone that does. I'm really eager to play this game, and I'd rather it not take any unneeded (imo) time, y'know? Seems like a waste of time to me, the random commenter on the internet who has no idea how to do any of the stuff you're doing.

    Well, it's not making it go any slower either. The most important things right now are script insertion and translation/proofreading, but not everyone has the necessary skills or time. For quite a while now we've had only a single person able to do each of those roles. One of whom has been MIA for a very long time. Honestly the fact that people still have hope for this project amazes me. Anyway, point is everyone has their own way to contribute and that's fine. I certainly don't expect anyone to learn another language or start studying programming so they can help a group of strangers on the internet translate an obscure 12 year old game.

    All the files are publicly available here: https://github.com/salixa/SNSC3-Translation
    So there's another hurdle here in that you'll have to learn how to use GitHub. The official tutorial (https://guides.github.com/activities/hello-world/) is a good way to start, and there are plenty of guides available.
    That will cover most of what you need to contribute. There are other tools I use, but that can wait for another time.

    Wow awesome!
    I cant wait for the next update, and cool idea with the banners too!
    One question, are teleport locations in the teleporter going to be translated?
    Because that would be kinda useful.

    Hi everyone! I wanted to give a brief update on the project, as there are some news to give:

    So far everything is going smoothly. @Salixa has made some improvements on the script of the game (which is always good). @Nevik_9191 , @GHANMI and I are translating the graphics. The only problem, though, is the script insertion. I decided to give @EarthDarkness time until 2nd January of 2018 to give us an update on the project. If he doesn't appear then I'll take it as a leave from the project (that means I'm going to have to look for another person to help us).

    That's all the updates from my side. See ya soon!

    Pablitox.

    Hello everyone! I need your help!
    The translation team and I have a private discord for working on the game we would love it if someone here could make an image for the server icon.
    To remind us of the fantastic support you have been providing!
    BUT WAIT! I hear you say. Where can I show off my awesome art?!?

    Well, I'm glad you asked. I'm happy to introduce The Summon Night Comunity Discord!
    Remember: Be kind and respectful GBA temp forum rules and discord rules still apply.
    Chat, make art, support us with encouragement, and best of all get more notifications about updates!
    Feel free to design a Server icon for the community as well. we'll use the best one you make.
    All submissions even if they are not used are seen and appreciated.
    Thanks for the support, we are working as quick as we can.
    @Pablitox will have to post the link as I cannot for some reason.

    Gambia, The
    Necroing myself after an eternity of absence because I feel like I should apologize for bailing on short notice four years ago. Life n such, but that's a bad excuse.

    The folks who stuck around to this day are unsung champions in my book.

    Now, life n such means I won't rejoin the project, but the apology and words of encouragement were still in order.

    old folks are coming back, now we need someone like Aent or Ritchburn and we'll probably get this done. xD

    Any idea when it -might- be done? (I know there probably won't be any actual estimates or exacts).

    Sorry- I'm being impatient for a project I know I'll have to be patient for. But damn do I wanna play this game in English.

    I would say roughly a year or so. It depends on @EarthDarkness staying m.i.a. or they find a replacement.
    @Pablitox Feel free to correct me.

    Signed up just for this. So if it's finished will you post the whole translated rom somewhere? So it's not just the patch

    Hey guys! Long time no see.

    In an effort to clean up all that happened so far with this translation, I decided to update the main thread to reflect our current situation.

    As you see, a good chunk of the game has been translated, but there are some positions we need to fill asap to ensure the game will get completed.

    Any doubts/concern/people looking to help us is welcome to mail me at batoloco.080@gmail.com, either that or our discord: https://discord.gg/2FMCTs8

    Many thanks!!!!!

    (BTW @EarthDarkness pls come back!).
