Special Progress report 10.08.2014

by

Hey guys, it’s been a while since the last progress report.

But no progress report doesn’t mean no progress ;)

Newcomers:

We got new members! Darian and Raitei volunteered to help us with the Editing and their work is marvelous!

With their help this is how it looks like right now.

Story:
The second story Edit is halfway done. 51% to be exact. The speed this is going at is awesome.

Translation: 100%

First Edit: 100%

Second Edit: 51%

Darian really helped to speed up this process.

NPCs:
Translation: 100%

First Edit:  20%

Second Edit: 20%

With the help of Raitei and Kalker this area is being taken care off and it’s only a matter of time now ;)

ASM:

100%, no bugs discovered, so far.

 

And last but not least, we have a surprise for you guys :)

This video covers the whole Forest Area, including all the NPCs. So you can see a complete area fully done. Things are not final and subject to change,
but I hope you’ll enjoy the video nevertheless.

    Is there anyway you could just release the product as is? I’m sure 99% of us is okay with a few misspells and a bug here or there. It would give us so much to do in our wait for the finished product. heck with the thousands of us playing i’m sure we can point bugs and misspells that we could report to you. making your job a lot easier. I’m a big fan of what your doing, and if there was a donate button i would smack that with 10 bucks no problem for all the time you guys put in to this and im sure others would as well. But please i been waiting so long at least since i foudn out what you’ve been doing since January. I would love a early release. And gladly re download it when the game is truly finished. Thanks for all your hard work. I know you guys been through a lot to do what you do.

    Thanks for all your support guys, it’s great to see everyone get excited about this project.

    @Rob: That’s an impressive speed run, thanks for posting it.

    @Mikito S: We’re not going to an early release, sorry. Although the first half or so of the game could be released today in “acceptable” condition, it won’t be as good as the final release. More importantly, the second half of the game and most of the NPCs haven’t been edited at all. Playing it as is would be possible, but not a very enjoyable experience since so much of the grammar would sound weird, a few random lines we missed are still in Japanese, but mostly, they just haven’t been examined by native English speakers to make them sound natural, and it shows.

    On the bright side, some people have been waiting for two years, so you’re getting off easy.

    To be quite honest if you didn’t like P3 i would not play P4. The game can get quite boring and long at parts just like P3. It’s not a bad game at all it’s just that you really need patience if you want to play it. One reason I also personally never liked persona is because to me it seemed like you NEEDED a guide to get the ending you wanted and the social links maxed out and everything else. I still loved the series though of course. For an rpg I really can’t recommend many since I don’t play any real true rpg games none that have turn based battles if that’s what your looking for.

    took me 70 hours to finish first playthrough , not all Social Links finished yet , had to play 2nd
    Persona4 Golden is way easier , can choose Persona skill instead of randomized , gold easier to get, 3 ingame months extra gameplay after final boss.

    its good game if you interested on the character progression.

    Hey Romsstar and team! thanks for the Progress report. First and foremost I was one of the fans who kept quiet these entire 2 years while you were trying to completely translate the game and I’m extremely excited the game will soon be played in English. Secondly, I’m not sure if this was brought up already, there seems to be a glitch when you use Jijimon’s computer. Where you input the password for items and all? In my game,a partially patched game I may add, using the computer to input password freezes the game. I dunno if you guys already tried using the computer but hey just making sure all bugs are fixed right? Thanks again and a fine splendid job guys. More power and hope you pass that thesis of yours and receive high marks. Thanks guys.

We’re good for the moment, but as we get closer to being finished we’d like some sets of fresh eyes to watch videos of each scene to spot any typos that we miss. After you look over each line in a scene ten or fifteen times you can miss obvious typos like that one precisely because you’ve read it too often.

    @Sporky On the whole playing persona 3 thing. It’s a kinda niche game since it’s weird on the rpg scene. It’s like a halfway visual novel. Most people only like one or two games in the series tbh. I’d recommend 4 over 3 but that’s because I value music as a part of the game quality. (Not that 3 had bad music Per Se, just liked 4’s music better.) Now a good rpg series to play is the Legacy of YS series. It’s like Sony’s answer to Legend of Zelda.

I own the actual Japanese game for my psp but have no idea how to make an English patch work on my psp so it would be easier for me to use the emulator.

  73. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    It would depend on what comes up. We’ve already had several people stop working on the project over the last two years, and we just accepted that and kept working, finding replacements when possible. So, if it were just a case where one person has to drop out, no problem. On the other hand, if what comes up is Namco Bandai were to send us a C&D or other legal threat, we would have to consider our options closely, consult a lawyer, and do what we think is best. Unfortunately, that would probably mean dropping the patch entirely. A third possibility exists as well; if Bamco decided to localize the game, we would also probably stop working on this out of respect for the company, and so we wouldn’t get sued.

    That last one is unlikely, we consider Decode to be a different game for those purposes since they are very different, and the PSP is basically dead.

  74. Romsstar Says:

    @liam Tamer:
    I used to work a lot on Digimon World 1, CUE (A spanish Romhacker) and I wrote a fix for the PAL Bug (First I wrote one for the german version and together we finished one for all PAL Versions) and the Giromon Jukebox Bug. When Redigitize was announced I thought I gotta do it.
    I love Digimon World 1 and Redigitize was just a dream come true. I do love translating and when the game was announced I finally felt that my Japanese was up to a level where I could translate with confidence.
    But actually we did have help from some Native Speakers in some cases, which was very valuable. As someone once said: “The Japanese used in Games and the everyday Japanese are like 2 different languages. If you want to localize games you need to have played lots of japanese games” (Or sorta like that)

    So yeah I enjoyed the idea of doing this, especially since Digimon World 1 was translated horribly and I knew they wouldn’t bother for the game and I wanted to provide a good translation this time… Everyone else joined up, either because they love digimon, digimon world 1 or the game as well.

    In the end, the decision to translate it was made the day the game got announced. Although I gotta say nobody from the original team (Day 1) is still part of the team right now. But I love the team we have right now, things are good.

    It hasn’t changed much, except for that it became easier.

    But since Digimon World 1 was a really easy game, I don’t really like how they made Redigitize easier.
    Luckily Decode was made a little bit harder again, so the difficulty is closer to DW1, as the Japanese fans also felt the same way, and said the game has to be made harder, where’s the fun if a game is easy?

    It really sucks how games nowadays become easier, when they were never hard to begin with. I can’t recall a game giving me trouble for the last ten years. At least in the 90s there were some challenging games.. Back then we played for the challenge and for the fun, nowadays you play for the Platin Trophy and pay for DLCs which make your life easier… :/

    I found Dark Souls to be difficult until a certain point to be honest.
    Once you get the hang of the different styles of combat, and the way the world works it gets substantially easier. Still challenging, but not that hard perse. It still is one of the greatest games I played though, mainly because of that same steep learning curve. You actually feel that sense of accomplishment when you succeed at something, and because you are forced to think out of the box during many encounters, that feeling is only strengthened :)

    Yeah I’m waiting for your patch now before I do anything I have so many digimon games to play in the mean time , so hopefully by the time I complete DW 1 2 3 4 , data squad , adventure , anode cathode trainer , DM Card battle , your awesome patch might be ready . how often do you guys get together to work on it ? do you have to keep passing files to each other across the net or is it all done on one computer ? I find the translation process very interesting. Wish I was smart enough to learn Japanese so I could help lol .

    Like

  106. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I’m not sure what you mean “how progress is made.” Like the story, everything has had a rough translation, and we have two members of our team going through them and fine tuning the details now that we have more context. It’s coming along, we’ve all been busy this last week, but progress is being made, the NPCs for several areas are in release candidate shape, which is where we want everything to be in the near future.

    Once the second round of editing finishes two things will happen. First, everyone on the team will be given a copy of the beta patch (currently, to avoid the temptation to leak it, only Romsstar has an up to date version) and will play through it looking for any typos or places that need more polish, as well as any potential bugs that might have been created by our ASM hacking, though we haven’t spotted any so far.. Second, we will ask for people with a good grasp of English and no training in Japanese to watch videos of each area and do the same thing, spotting any typos or spots where the translation only makes sense to people who have read the original Japanese. These videos may or may not be made available to the public, we haven’t decided.

    You’ll have to put custom firmware or Homebrew Enabler (HEN) on your PSP, but once that’s done it our patch works equally well on both. We’ll have a tutorial for everything you’ll need to do to play the game legally when the patch comes out. Note that for legal reasons, we cannot condone the cool crime of copyright infringement, or give advice on how to download an ISO from one of many convenient and easy to use sites across the internet.

    On a less sarcastic note, I really do recommend buying a legitimate copy of the game to those who can afford to do so. If users of our patch support Bamco by buying the game, it may encourage them to create more Digimon games in future, and port them to the West officially, which would be better for all of us.

    @The-Annoyer: We haven’t swapped the buttons, I’d have to ask how difficult it would be to do so, but probably fairly difficult. Stupid Sony, why they made that change to begin with…

    Anyway, there’s only one story, the first and and second edit refer to gong over the story multiple times, we’re now in something like our third round. First Romsstar and the team members who ended up leaving did a rough translation, accurate, but not great sounding since Romsstar isn’t a native English speaker. Then I went over it and edited that translation, but due to some technical problems that have now been fixed, I couldn’t tell who was saying what, and we couldn’t know if the translations would stay inside the text box. For this second round of editing, we’ve fixed the technical problems and found two more skilled editors.

    Once we’re done with this last round of editing on the story, we’ll make sure the NPCs have been gone over just as carefully, and then play test it to check for bugs and any typos or anything we might have missed. Then we’ll need to make sure that both versions of the patch are ready (one for the dub terms one for the original), and unless I’m forgetting something, we’ll release at that point.

Many maps got much bigger, there are new facilites in File City which weren’t in Redigitize… A completely overhauled Soundtrack with many new very nice tracks… Access to Mt Infinity…
    You can now hire Royal Knights as “bodyguards” to beat tough bosses and stuff (but they’re expensive), Online Ranking Battle…
    They added the function to switch between different camera angles…

  192. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    You’ll need either a PSP or a decent computer to run it. If you use a PSP, you’ll need to put CFW on it, and computer users will need an emulator like PPSSPP. You’ll also need an ISO of the game which you legally get by ripping your own from a legit copy of the game using your PSP with CFW connected to a computer using the program UMDGen. There are illegal methods that you can research at your leisure, if you like.

    Once you have both the ISO and something to play it on, you’ll need to download our patch once it is released and patch the ISO. We’ll have a tutorial here on how to do so, but it’s very easy to do.

    @Meganekoukekirabudayo: Not really. I can do some translating, because I took several years of Japanese in high school, and then watched raw anime for the next seven years. Mostly I do the editing though, which I’m good at in part because I’ve always had a talent for writing, and perhaps mostly because I did a lot of this kind of thing in high school.

    If you mean the more technical side of things, most programmers who work in the ROM hacking scene are self taught. You have to be able to do assembly code hacking, which is difficult and not taught much anymore, especially since each type of hardware is different, so you have to learn new things for each system, and it’s basically all undocumented, since console makers don’t usually encourage people to hack their systems.

    In both cases, the answer is just to start doing it, and then get better at it. I know that I’ve gotten better at both Japanese and writing since I started working on translation patches.

    Also about the video games. Data Squad is a decent game, I mean I did not really like the characters(I do not like the series itself) but getting through them I did like the Digimon Galaxies and having to achieve certain things in order to digivolve to a certain Digimon. I also really enjoyed Digimon Dusk/Dawn it had a good story and I could have my favorite Digimon(Dorumon). I also like Digimon Championship it is similar to Digimon 1 as you raise digimon(although you can have more than one at a time). The only downside I feel about it is the fact you can not control the Digimon while they are in a battle and you just get to watch them fight.

I also don’t want to make a whole bunch of monthly “yup, still not dead” type posts, so we usually try to have something interesting to include with it. Still, we’ll see if we can find a balance somewhere.

    @Matthewzmd: Feel encouraged to distribute the patch file as far and wide as you like. However, as Huntar said, downloading a copy of the game itself from the internet is copyright infringement. While I personally see nothing wrong with that, in the unlikely event that you were to get sued for doing so, I don’t want you blaming us.

    Perhaps more importantly, I hope that everyone who can afford to do so buys the original game. If nothing else, if Namco sees sales rise after the patch comes out, they may decide to take another look at localizing Decode, which would be a good thing for everyone.

    @Hawkes: Redigitize is great, actually. It goes back to the DW1 style of gameplay, one Digimon at a time, and it evolves based on a whole bunch of stats, and eventually dies. The story is pretty great too, though not as good as Decode which expands it a great deal. It’s even technically a sequel to DW1. There are references to your character in that one, and all of the areas on File Island are “evolved” versions of the original areas. It’s the best Digimon game in a long time, and frankly, probably one of Namco’s best games in a long time.

    Also, DW4 never happened. It was a bad dream, just like the Matrix sequels and the Star Wars prequels.

    I’m personally surprised I haven’t seen Romsstar or Sporky complain more than they do. They’re honestly taking it a lot better than some other translations out there would.

    Just… give them a break, okay? It’ll be done when it’s done. Not when you want it done. No one has the right to rush them, no one has the right to complain about how long they take. Personally I think they’re doing fantastic on the work. There are translations that are old as shit (We’re talking about 2000’s old as shit here), and STILL being worked on.

    Two years is nothing, this year has gone by so quickly for me and frankly, I’m not only here to get this patch when it’s done.

    I recall giving a release date many times.

    Please take into account we had programming issues which really slowed us down and we would still have them if it wasn’t for CompCom. I know two years must feel long, but sometimes things are not in our hands. This translation depends on people who do it for free in their spare time. These people have lives, these people have jobs, or exams/thesis stuff. Those things naturally take precedence over this project. Please understand… *gg*

    I appreciate the work you guys are doing, but I’d like to iterate some of the things you guys are doing, that some guests (ignoring trolls) fail to grasp.

    Translation: You can’t just go to Google and translate each line in this manner. That method loses context and we’d end up with things like, “All your are belong to us!”

    Editing: There are so many lines of text in this game, the video’s show less that .1% of all the lines of text that are in the game. Mistakes could have been made; Romsstar, et. al. are putting their names in a project that not only you will appreciate, but that they will be proud of.

    Assembly: I do not envy CompCom, going through lines of assembly to understand the inner workings of a program at a level, just above binary, to find where characters in lines of text are given how much length they should take up. All in order to change it to look properly with English characters instead of Japanese. That would seem pointless for me to do, but it would look polished. It speaks to their commitment to both the product and their professionalism.

    Thanks again for the hard work, and time you’ve taken out of your lives.

    HEADLINE: Second Edit of Story reaches 100%.
    It’s been quiet lately about the group which selflessly decided to take on the huge job of localizing the PSP Game Digimon World Re:Digitize. But now we’re happy to report, that the Second Edit of the Story reached 100%. To ensure maximum quality, I make one last Translation check and move on completely to the NPCs.

    Now while the NPCs are still at work, it looks like we should reach the deadline we called ourselfes and bring you the one or other Christmas gift… :)

    Meanwhile, if you want to support us, please buy that crappy PS3/XBOX360 game. I know it really sucks but please show that company (You-Know-Who) that Digimon is alive, even if they have no idea what they are doing. This way you’re giving at least Cyber Sleuth a chance (I don’t believe in Decode happening anymore) to get localized, because naturally Vita and 3DS games are out of the question for now.

    @Andy Pabon: Good to hear from you. When the patch is done, it will be released as an xdelta file. You’ll need to find an ISO of the game on your own (the legal way is to make one yourself from the UMD) and use the XDelta program to patch that ISO. It’s pretty easy, and we’ll post a tutorial when we release the patch.

    We’re heading into the second to final step. Right now we’re inserting the text, and making any last changes to it while we do so. There are 294 files to insert, which range from a single line of text to a few thousand words, but on average they take about an hour to work through. Right now, we have twelve of them done, which puts us at about 4%. Once we finish that, it’s just play testing and bug finding, and then we’ll release.

    I’ll ask Romsstar to. For me, it’s fairly straightforward. Romsstar gave me a program (a modified Falo tool, what it does I don’t really understand.), and I either automatically insert text from the extracted .txt files we’ve been working from, or more commonly, I do so manually. Due to the changes he made, the text box in the program is the same size and font the game uses, which makes it easier to make sure the text doesn’t go outside the box, so I usually enter the text manually, making any last changes I like, and getting everything to fit correctly.

    After that, we use UMD Gen to put those files into the game, and then XDelta to compare the new ISO to the original, and create a patch.

Is bandai gonna at least release an english version now? :( I mean if they are gonna sue it means theyve seen all of this, you’ll probably post anything regarding this tomorrow but i mean this is just stupid… Can bandai at least re-release the game for purchase? They mustve seen how many people were waiting for the english translation…

    God dammit, sorry everyone, that comment is fake. I was sleeping or I would have deleted it already. We have not had any contact from Namco, and if we had, we would not announce in the comments section, it would receive a separate blog post.

    The comment section is strange and funny at the same time. There are people that will take each nd` every comment seriously while others will only care when there`s a formal post.
    Human beings are really interesting , for the sake of nothing but attention they`ll lie. With everything but concrete data they will jump into conclusions.
    Humanity wonders they say.

    Well this makes me feel both better and stupid, sorry about my sad comment @Sporky, usually im more logical and put together when reading about things like this and well it caught me at a weird time when i couldnt read up on it properly. Like we already knew, some people have nothing better to do than troll the day away. Anyway keep up the hard work and please delete that comment if you can.

    Well as far as I remember Sporky`s grammar is refined and doesn`t have many mistakes so it was rather obvious to me, lol. `i` instead of `I`, `thought that we are` instead of `thought that we were`, without metioning the wording seemed awkward.
    On a side note you guys should keep in mind that Nanco/Bandai is aware of this project and if they didn`t intervene before, they won`t do now, specially after knowing it has support overseas.

    That comment will be deleted, and the commentator’s IP banned as soon as Romsstar wakes up. For some reason, only one person’s account can have the ability to delete comments.

    Namco/Bandai are at least somewhat aware of our project, I think. At one point Romsstar contacted them to see about offering our services translating the game for free, which they declined. That doesn’t mean they won’t send us a cease and desist letter, but hopefully they won’t. That’s also the reason we aren’t giving an exact release date, most projects get a letter right before they intend to release. The closest we’ll get is sometime around Christmas, but that is only true if we can get everything finished by then.

    I’m sorry guys if that fake Sporky shook you up guys.
    Obviously some people have really nothing better to do.
    But I might point out, that such an importance announcement would:
    A) never just be posted in the comment section
    A) come most likely from me and be on the front page.

    This project is not fake, we have never made any money out of this, and who knows, if you behave and all, maybe you’ll get something nice for Christmas ;)
    Needless to say, the fake Sporky won’t get anything.xD

    Thanks Skullbazon. Romsstar figured out how to give me moderation power, so I can delete comments and ban people when necessary. That should make things easier in future, though hopefully people won’t try to cause problems like this again.

    @wdango: I don’t have citations. I have reasons to think like that :
    1- Romsstar contacted them before to offer some kind of deal, don’t really remember what but it happened and the offer was declined.

    2- Soo why would they decline?
    a- They don’t want to spend in something that could be called “hopeless”
    b- They don’t care since this project was initially free.
    That means they supposedly looked into the offer.

    3- From that I ask myself if there are any reasons for them to sue the guys involved in this project:
    a- If this is Money Free, reasons 2\a and 2\b won’t be a concern.
    b- You can think of it as a language mod. From my experience it’s unlikely to be a problem to Konami/Bandai. There are lots of VN’s english patched for instance.
    * It’s not taking away their money, unless for some reason they decided to work on an english version.
    * They allowed Duelling Network alive, and that’s virtually stealing their money, yet they don’t care.

    Mix it all and you come to the conclusion : “They are aware but will do nothing about it. They will see how far the project reaches(In a global sense) and using that data decide whether it’ll be a good idea to localize a future game to be released with the continued Digimon Anime Project.”
    Well that’s just me expeculating and I can be totally offtrack.

    @Krownyh: That’s pretty much our line of thinking. We know they’re at least some people in the company are aware that this project exists, and it’s been long enough that it seems unlikely that they’ll shut us down. That said, it’s hardly a certainty. It’s possible for instance that Bandai Namco’s legal department hasn’t heard of our project, and that they’ll send us a C&D order at any time. I certainly hope not, but it’s happened to more than a few projects in the past.

    if bandai is an asshole, they probably think like “i wont let these guys ruin our profit by translate the game before we do it. if we do it, it would probably be like 5-6 years or after the petition reach 1-10 mil after we were unable to take more excuse why not to do the translation. instead of buy our game just because a fan translation is finished, they probably get a pirate version of it anyway.”

    by the way I really grateful for you guys to do the translation even though bandai and comment spammers will never give you any credit, while me and the other supporters will always encourage you guys to go forward and never give up. Don’t mind about bandai of taking down your project, they got quitter spirit since the beginning anyway.
