    About This Patch
    This patch is a revival of an old patch from 2009 originally made by Rolen47. Wanting to see the translation complete, and unable to contact the original patch creator, I took it upon myself to finish what had been started. I started working back in 2013, and released my first patch in June of 2014. Since then, I have translated virtually all of the game, songs included.

    just one question. there will be a patch with romanji lyrics or there will be only in english like the preview images?? I prefer lyrics to be singable.

    When I originally took over this patch, there was a Romaji lyrics optional patch. That said, it was full of typos, and overall pretty "meh." The game also has a 40 character limit per line of lyrics, making Romaji lyrics impossible in many instances. As such, I did away with it, as it did not reflect the profession image I aimed to achieve with this project.

    For example, due to the lack of space, this line:
    "watashi no hitokoto ni wa mittsu no kotoba de henjisuru koto"

    Had to be shrunk to this:

    Not only did the words have to be smooshed together, but even doing that still didn't allow for all of the lyrics to be displayed. This 40 character limit is hard-coded, so hacking it to be longer is pretty much out of the question. While I considered keeping the Romaji patch, I ultimately scrapped it in favor of the more professional-looking English lyrics.

    That said, since I've ported all of the song lyrics to the divapatch plugin, I suppose it would be much easier for me to redo the Romaji lyrics, though they would still be cut off. If I end up doing this, I would release this as an optional patch, with the English lyrics as the default, but Romaji available by replacing a single file. It's not completely ruled out, but it would take quite a bit of time to go through and redo all of the lyrics, update the files, etc.

    Thanks for your input, it really means a lot.
