    I'm in contact with a translator who is working on the scripts for Luminous Arc 3: Eyes, but I need some help with editing/repacking. The game had been partially translated from someone else(mostly battle menus and such, not the story), but he is long gone, and the site used for the translation no longer exists.

    I'm in need of an editor to go over the scripts, and make sure that the translated text doesn't have any major mistakes in it. I need a romhacker to go over the scripts and deal with text that would overflow the textbox, because simply re-inserting the scripts will show nothing but "*************" in game.

    Scene Info on the game:
    Luminous Arc 3:Eyes

    You can make a thread asking for help in the romhacking.net forums.

    There are a few more scripts that have been translated. Progress is slow, but steady. I think I have 11/249 scripts or something like that. If anyone else is willing to translate, that would be appreciated.

    Any chance of simply posting the script online if repacking isn't likely to work out? Any sort of English reference on this game would be great since there's no English translated script at all online.

    I'll post the script if the translator stop translating or when he finishes. If you want access to the google group I use for it, send me a pm with your email.

    I can't seem to figure out to send private messages, probably because I'm a newcomer. Is there any other way I could contact you?

    I'm sorry if this is a rude thing to ask but, can the translator released the script for the game on gamefaqs or Google docs or any other site, perhaps? I can figure the game mechanics myself, but I need to know the story so bad. Even if the grammar is not good is fine, because currently I played with Google translate and translate every dialogue with post pictures system of Google and this only make me even more confused because of machine translation.

    Gamefaqs is full of trolls. Don't even bother about that.

    Is this project still alive? Or did it go the way of the dodo again?

    I haven't heard from the translator in a while. I'll message him and ask if he is still working on it.

    He hasn't had a chance to do some more progress on it, life has got in the way. But he hasn't quit it either.

    Would starting a kick-starter for a translation help? I wouldn't mind paying for the translation if there was an actually project and a team built up to work on it.

    There are a few issues with starting a kickstarter for it.
    1) There probably isn't enough support for the game
    2) Because it is another company's IP, you cannot sell a translation patch without getting into serious trouble.

    A possible way around this would to be find another translator, and donate for the work the translator is doing, but without buying the patch.


    If you want to get a project team together, go for it, and contact me with the details.
