Hello all, it's time for a long due update.

Why did we stay silent for so long? Well simply because we didn't do anything... I lagged behind for checking chapters translation, so KHHSubs focussed on another of his projects (and he has many), and Witcher 3 came, and holidays, and MGS5, etc.
Today I finally finished checking the chapter I was "stuck on" since several month, and I hope to do the next one tomorrow, and get things back on track. I'm sure that whenever Yakuza 5 comes out, it'll give us the motivation to continue this work. It's been more than a year already, so we'll have to wonder what we want to achieve, and maybe set some timed goals. We'll keep you updated.

I'm eternally grateful that you guys are even trying. It's hard work for no reward but I hope you know you are making some people incredibly happy. The western Yakuza fanbase isn't the biggest but we have a lot of love for the series.

thanks so much for your work. I thought i would ask info about the HD collection for PS3. I tried googling about it again but i couldn't find the source where there were talks about compatibility text from PS2 conversion to PS3 being a success. Would you or anyone happen to know of this and/or if this project is close to being complete? Thank you.

It's me again giving my sincere thanks to you guys for still doing this! Don't take this as me pressuring you, but rather just a confirmation of how grateful we all are for your efforts! Because once you finish translating this, for sure without any hesitation I will jump on it right away!!! And I'd probably play for days/weeks/months to come. I played this game without knowing anything back then for good long while, probably hundreds of hours already just because the gameplay alone is so fun. I can't even imagine what it would be like once I understand what they're saying O_O. Easily one of my all times favourites, the fact that it's portable is just the icing on the cake. Please do your best, and no pressure! But I want to really let you know that I am and we all are here very grateful for you trying, and we love (at least i do to death) this game so much! Have merry christmas/ happy holidays!

A little update,

We're going slowly, but we're still going. We've finished chapter 7, so we are close to complete the main story translation. I hope it'll be done in the next weeks.
Also, we're still looking for translator and graphic editor, so if you want to join and help, just pm me.

I would like to help, but I don't think I can do much
Will you translate the 2nd one too?

Just want to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Like a lot of people on this thread I made this account just to let you know how much I appreciate all the hard work the team has put in and I'm pumped for the release! Is it possible to put out what you have now so that we[your fans and supporters] have a chance just to mess around IG?

Hello everyone,

To keep you updated : we've a really slow point. Basically KHH, our main translator, realized he can't progress quickly enough on the main story. There are still three chapters left, but he doesn't think he'll be able to translate that until several months. And after that there's the whole substories to work on, and many items descriptions, the hostess game, etc. If he was to translate all that alone, it wouldn't be done in this decade. That's why, once again, I'm calling for help : if you have good knowledge of Japanese, and even though you don't know the licence, you're welcome to join the team and help us. The same goes if you have some skills in graphic editing. Feel free to contact me by PM. And if you can't help us directly but you know someone that might, please get the word out!

@MichaelAker : As cj_iwakura said, I want us to finish translating the first before even thinking of doing the second. And I would only think about it if I'm sure it'll be done at a faster pace than for this one game.

  • NoobletCheese @ NoobletCheese:
    with rollback you have no input lag on your end, it feels identical to playing offline. if your opponent countered your move before you saw it happen on your end it "rolls back" to that state. eg. lets say you do a jump-in roundhouse you might see them get hit for a split second but then you get dp'd out of the hitting animation cause your opponent actually anti-aired you in that split second you just didn't see it until slightly later when the packets arrived. imo its way better than playing with input latency
