    Frankly speaking, I don't care about having such thing IRL. Yes, really. I already given up on reality.

    Escapism? Yeah, I guess you can put it that way.

    Because it's game, it's not meant to be real. It's meant for fun and enjoyment, to be able to find something that you would never be able to in real life. I can't go to Mushroom Kingdom, that's why I play Mario games, I can't go to Hyrule, that's why I play Zelda games. I'm pretty sure I will never find a true tsundere in real life, that's why I date Rinko! XD

    It's meant for fun, to be entertaining. Yes, some people may take it to the extremes, but overall, it's another game, another way to have fun. And I can guarantee it that it is enjoyable. [​IMG]


    Good work with the patch, loving it so far. Pitty that Rinko is only the second with most translation complete. Preoritize Rinko! XD
    Just kidding, just kidding. [​IMG]

    Amazing work, keep up the awesome job! [​IMG]

    Ahem... Please try to stay on topic.
    (I mean this thread is mainly about Rom hacking...)

    -----------------------------

    A bit more on graphics:

    I researched a bit on some packing option (to put the graphic files together so we can view them in CT2) and found that narctool might be our choice.

    Here's the procedure.

    - Download narctool
    http://members.cox.net/dexter0/DSTools/narctool.shtml
    - Put all the decompressed files in one folder
    - Put narctool.exe one level above the decompressed file folder
    - Make batch file to run narctool
    (Ex. narctool.exe p NewFolder newFolder.narc)
    Or you can use command line for this too, I guess.
    - Run batch file and you should get a .narc file
    - Open .narc file in CrystalTile2.
    - Now you will see which ones are the palettes, the picture, tile, etc.
    - Try right-click them to see what you can get.
    (Mostly, for RGCN you can "Retrieve tile address", for RCLN you get "Palette Load" and for RCSN you get "Map Address Load".)

    This trick might be useful for other projects with a lot of individual graphic files too.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    @Czero90, you might try it out. Now I can view pictures that come with RCSN properly. (But for some RGCNs, you might still want to adjust the tile's width and height to get the correct picture.)

    You can help test playing it and then report any errors you find.
    Kuren and GeekyGuy are helping with the editing now, but if you find any errors in the patch, please report them too. [​IMG]

    By the way, anyone played the game and has an idea how
    ????????
    should be translated or romanized?

    It was romanized as Wallwajin in one of TLWiki's translations but I don't think that's correct though.
    At least the last one isn't supposed to be 'jin'. It could be 'win' or 'vin' I think.

    The romanized version looks a bit like "Voruvavin".

    ????????????
    Vo-ru-va-vi-n

    Don't ask me what it means, though, cause I have noooo clue.

    Glad to see someone who pays attention to details, such as grammar and spelling. I'll download this patch over the weekend and give it a test and help out as much as I can with editing, etc. I'm totally OCD when it comes to spelling and grammar.

    ?? is Wolverine.
    The kana would be ??? .

    It'd be easier with the context if you can post it, jewel.

    It's a robot in the game. (In Rinko's dream event.)

    Please see second pic in the link (I just Googled it.) Note: Spoiler alert for 1 of Manaka and 1 of Rinko's dream event.

    http://nonnodb.blog78.fc2.com/blog-entry-1443.html

    Kind of have no idea how it's supposed to be romanized.

    There's also a similar item in Tokimemo Girl's Side 1.
    Hibiya's choice of BD present is ???????????. (I just translated it as Robot in GS1's patch.)
    (Have tried looking up Konami's robot games for reference but couldn't find any. T_T)

    At first I was thinking about Wolverine too. Previous translations in TLWiki used Wallwajin.
    But I think the sounds should be all "V". Will Volvavin be too weird?

    I'll ask Inori about it, but the only thing that came up by a google search is "Volvo Vin" and that was a vehicle :/

    I actually kind of feel like you should have it as a parody to some well-known mecha anime (more amusing IMO rather than the current word).

    Inori said she translated that in TMGS2 as "Volvabin".

    Thank you so much. And please thank Inori too. [​IMG]
    I don't know why the names aren't spelled the same in Tokimemo and in Love Plus.
