SUMMON NIGHT SWORDCRAFT STORY: STONE OF BEGINNINGS
A bit of story - Translation
As far as it goes, the translation had it's problems since the beginning: translators and hackers leaving with a half unfinished job were the most common.
ten years ish ago, the project was revived by oil_ who made a site the translation, which is no longer available (Don't worry, the translation has been saved by salixa). Now I'm currently taking care of it.
Earthdarkness then came to help us with the hacking part, though he has gone missing ever since the start of this year.
Thanks to unknownbrackets help, we now have a script inserter that can handle every possible outcome!!!!
The current tools give us a lot of freedom that we never had. Now we can overcome the limitations placed in the system messages, we no longer have to rely on caveman speaking in the games to translate. Unknownbrackets reworked the whole system to give us a lot of space and an ASCII font, with support to characters from other languages like ñ, etc.
Current team + people that helped so far
Pablitox - Team & Project leader (keeps track of info and the team). Currently, inserting system messages in the game. Translation of general terms of the game.
Ghanmi / MLagaff - General hacking & graphic helpful knowledge (literary, a lifesaver)
Zelly_9191 – Graphics (works on the graphics & sprites that contain text. Has limited or no hacking knowledge)
Normatt - ASM Hacking. Made the debug menu available.
Unknownbrackets - ASM Hacker and currently our lifesaver.
KishiAri,Cery, JaiFain ( graphics)
M.I.A (missing in action)
Englishsubs4all – Translator (Reachable from the gbamtemp forums, so not exactly M.I.A)
Aent - Hacking
Earthdarkness - Hacking
Salixa - proofreading
Felipe – translation and proofreading
Black – Hacking

No longer working on the project:
Cyan - Proofreading
TheZu - Hacking
blackdog: Hacking advice
Macaronron / Cakepans - Translator of (almost) the entire script.
_oil - He made the subtitler, useful for proofreading.
As you might know by now, we are able to fully insert the translated script
The one problem we have now is the state of the script, sadly because we had to work with limitations then, the script has some parts that do not reflect the context very well. Felipe and salixa went missing too, so we'd need a proofreader and a translator to help us with the missing bits of text. It could be better if they had some background knowledge of these games!
Btw, Zelly_9191 made some banners to spread all possible info about the project. Everyone is free to use it in their signature! Also, there's a DISCORD chat room where you can discuss things about the game etc, feel free to join! https://discordapp.com/invite/2FMCTs8
