Hi folks!

I've joined up with Cerber4444 (see previous threads here and here) to try to translate this visual novel with an original storyline based on the light novels/anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I'm a fairly competent hacker with a lot of experience in the Nintendo DS space (see my GitHub). I've already made a lot of progress on hacking this game -- I've reverse engineered the game's compression algorithm, cracked the event file structure so I can to reinsert text and have extracted the entire script, and have started work on decoding the graphics files. (Nearly) all of this is contained within a utility I've built. For Cerber's part, they have graphic design experience and are eventually planning to help translate the game into Russian.

In the meantime, this game is pretty massive (as visual novels tend to be). According to the weblate I have set up, there are 36,737 strings to be translated (though it's possible that not all of those are used in game; this will have to be seen through testing I haven't gotten to yet). Additionally, while I'm pretty steadily working my way through crafting my utility, more hands make for faster work. Finally, we will of course still need people to test and play through the game to make sure it's all working.

Therefore, we're looking for JP->EN translators, ROM hackers, graphics folks, and testers/proofreaders. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this project.

Thanks so much for your time. If you're interested in helping out (or just want to follow along on our progress), please drop by our brand new discord server!

Don't have any sort of romhacking nor translation skills, but I can definitely test this on either emulator or a flash cart if need be! Have multiple new3DS, a DS lite and a DSi (the last of which has broken triggers)

    That's why gas price in California is nearly $5 a gallon because the minimum wage rate is higher in my states it's around $3 a gallon but minimum wage is lower so there is a cost to living to blame
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Per state that is
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But if everyone in the world was rich you'd pay rich prices
  • Veho @ Veho:
    So the fact the gas station attendant gets paid 1 dollar per hour more means gas that sells a few hundred gallons per hour has to cost 2 dollars per gallon more, to compensate?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It's an example their workers make more in that state so they can charge higher prices
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "We had to increase prices by $200 per hour because one guy makes $1 per hour."
  • Veho @ Veho:
    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I was told the market would "self regulate".
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I still feel as if prices would've gone up in America regardless of whose in office
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But even they look at data charts and mostly have contacts in other country wide offices that talk to each other to make a fair msrp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    BigOnYa, taxes are calculated at checkout in Murrika so it's easy to compare.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's how China sales so cheap each baby out the womb is given a soldering iron and told good luck
