Believe me when I say I would love to do one and I think most people can agree the game deserves a proper translation, but even if I found the time to do it, it's still way beyond my skillset at the moment.
You have done incredible work translating the names thank you. šŸ˜Š

Hopefully somewhere down the line someone could give the game a full overhaul. We all know Nintendo and Monolith arenā€™t going to do it.

Have you considered giving your mod to other potentially interested parties? Such as people that mod fan translations for jrpgā€™s.

I was only responsible for the script changes, the person who worked on the hack itself is planning on making it public when they're complete with their own project.

DLC for base game is fixed but unfortunately it looks like Torna is an impossibility at the moment with how this patch works since it's a bit hacky.
It's definitely not the worst playing with the half translation since the cast is smaller, but you'll definitely get whiplash from the nation names.
Ah, that's a shame. I hope someone finds a way to make it work. It'd be a bit jarring to play the game with the proper names in the main game and then play the DLC with the localized ones.

This was with v1.0, so might've been fixed already, but this line from "Nopon of Good Tastes" is missing the Gormott -> Gula change.

Found another bug, this time with v2.0, Pietre's dialog for Passion of the Artisan doesn't play, only the party responses (the dialog option as to what type of creature he saw doesn't appear either)
With the mod this is all I get:

Also, one thing to consider for future updates is changing the name of arts (For example, Feral Uppercut to Wild Up). I'm also not sure about the change from Nia to Niyah, I feel like Nia is close enough to keep.

Yeah I don't feel like it was a worthwhile change when they sound exactly the same. To my mind, it'd be like changing Shulk to Shuruku: We know what the actual intent is being drawn across there, the localization just gets straight to the point.

Doing a couple side quests and noticing a lot more cuts in dialogue? I just accepted True Colors in Uraya/Invidia and had everyone's "sounds like trouble" play and then cut to "leave it to us" without any message from the character. I want to say similar happened with Diplomatic Tensions in Gormott/Gula. I'm not reading all of these but still notable for people who wish to use this and actually like all it's dialogue

Uhhh yeah not good. Thanks for documenting, it let me easily verify that those files look completely fine. So somehow adding the DLC just blew things up. Bizarre.

I'm going to take it down for the time being, maybe throw up the prev version too when I find the right one.
Nuts it did this, just as we were working on a (sloppy) way to get Torna to potentially work.

Unfortunate but understandable. Wish you all the best!

Just came to pretty much post this, just noticed it after doing some side quests, and talking to random npc's, a lot of dialogue seems to be missing now, what's the best version to stick with for now just V1 I guess, since that's the only one left in the OP?

Oh something I've always wanted to mention is that when characters stutter named "P...Pyra!", the first letter of the localized name remained "P...Homura!" A line during Chapter 4 was also missed for Kiku still being Lila.

Yeah v1 for now until v2 is fixed up

It seems the v1 you uploaded is not the original.
This is the original, it has 3495 files, the one you have uploaded has 3648 files.
The one immediately obvious difference is this one doesn't have the Nia to Niyah change, which the one you uploaded does.

Yes that's technically the first version created that had quite a few bugs before being ironed out with the one I posted in the main. But this and the main one do not have the dialogue breaking issue v2 is having at the moment.

But good to have for posterity, I have way too many non-public versions to keep track of.
