    Always nice to see some progress.

    Can confirm that savefiles work. Do you have one from the first save? Or can you upload you ppsspp/settings?

    I'm not really sure about taking donations but the offer is appreciated.

    It seems this new translator as also left me like the first, I mean atleast we got a small bit from them.
    Sadly though we are once again left without a translator, I am having a lot of trouble finding someone who is willing to stay with us.

    Yeah it is starting to look like that, I really didn't want to resort to a google translation but I'm being left with no other choice.

    Hopefully you manage to sort it out.

    i want to help but i'm not really good at translating japanese to english since i am just also using a software on translating and having tons of knowledge of using synonyms is a major key factor for a machine translator.. hope you can find another translator soon....

    Is there any way I can help? I'm a huge fan of the ZZT series (RIP ZZT4 ;_;7)

    *edit
    Google Translate ain't all too bad either as long as you have a competent TL checker and someone to give you textual advice

    Indeed RIP ZZT4 ;_;7 You will be missed.

    Edit: The only help we really need right now is a translator, If anyone knows someone who could help then send them our way.

    The lack of a translator is likely a reason.
    I'll hopefully be able to help on the technical side once either Sol or Phantasy is out

    Well yeah that is kinda the reason, makes it difficult to progress otherwise.

    Hopefully you can, but no rush this project isn't going anywhere.
    On a technical end of things one of the biggest things holding the project back is those TPL files which hold the menu graphics.
    We need to figure out how to recompress them properly as I think we already have decompressed them.

    Hopefully its some compression format that already exists and can be identified

    That would help make things much easier.

    Google translator is much more bad than you think it is.
    Imagine a translator not properly handling prepositions, one third of the available writing systems (upper-case/lower-case) and verbs.
    If that competent TL checker gets a dictionary and starts translating on his own, no matter how shitty the result is, it will be better than Google translator.

    This is looking great, i hope you manage to finish! I loved Raw Danger, and was sad that this was only in Japanese (and even more sad about ZZT4). :D

    My, It has been sometime since this page has seen any action haha. I guess I might as well update on the current situation.

    As of right now I haven't really given up on this, but I am facing the issue of lacking any means of translating.
    I sound like a broken record every time I say that and I hate it, but it's not like I have much else to say.
    I thought it'd be good to come and let everyone know though that this is by no means dead, It'll move again if we can get the help we need.
    The only other issue that we had so far would probably be that the menu images are held in a different compression then everything else in the game.
    On top of that it's a compression we are not familiar with nor does anyone else seem to be either.
    We can decompress it but we cannot recompile it successfully. So if anyone is interested in taking a look at that you can always let me know.

    Other than that, that's all that's been going on. A whole lotta nothing.

    Just want to say thanks for all the hard work. Wish I knew Japanese too, there must be someone out there who can help though! :D

    The English translation which you are using as a guide seems pretty thorough. Is there a lot more text that needs to be translated which is not in the guide?

    That is only a walkthrough not a word for word translation which is what we are doing. I'm sure there is someone out there who can help, they just haven't seen this thread. lol
