Progress Update 12.07.2016


Hi guys.

Yes, we are still alive :D I  hope you guys out there are fine as well.
Real life commitments, a lack of motivation and a general feeling of being overworked, stalled the progress lately.
But we’re still around and kicking. Currently we focus our efforts on Decode as the Citra 3DS Emulator has made some substantial progress, enabling us to do things that were impossible so far.

You can check out the details on GBATemp (link is pinned to the right).

I currently estimate the progress of Decode’s Story translation by roughly 25%.

I’ll provide a more substantial update when I get to it.

See ya guys,

Operation Decoded

  11. Romsstar Says:

    Keep thinking that…
    It makes it all the more fun to strike back with a huge update :P
    But as I always said: We do it for us and for the fans.
    Some people are still around and even if nobody were around we’d still end up doing it :D


  12. Hallelujah Says:

    Heres me hoping you didnt take my bad joke (about a game never being alive, just clarifying) the wrong way because I really do love you guys for what you do (づ◕ 3 ◕)づ

    Ps: “It makes it all the more fun to strike back with a huge update :P” you sir got my hopes up (ง◕ᗜ◕)ง
    “We do it for us and for the fans.” and this should be the way of thinking of companies ლ(ಠ෴ಠლ)

    Also sorry for my many faces, I LOVE THEM (∩⩾ω⩽)⊃━☆゚.*


  13. Romsstar Says:

    Don’t worry, plus it’s not like you were actually that wrong.
    We just try thinking of ways to make it alive again :D

    As we’ve shown with Redigitize, although it can take some time, we always deliver ;)


  14. Rai Says:

    @Rommstar: “Although it can take some time, we always deliver.” Sounds like some kind of pregnancy advert.

    I hope you’re happy. Also darn, nobody responded to my ded post in a way I wanted. Sadface.


  15. Romsstar Says:

    I suppose I do think of our Translation as a baby, so that fits :D


  16. Nightmare12 Says:

    Romsstar, I want to ask this but I hope it doesn’t pass off as offensive or anything, but does this mean that the estimated time frame you gave before is now redundant, or is it still an active goal to meet it? I understand it was a tentative one. I’m just hoping for a definitive answer
    Thanks for all that you, and your team do for fellow Digimon fans. Best of luck!


  17. Romsstar Says:

    As things are right now the estimated time frames are still our goal and I see no particular reason why we shouldn’t be able to meet those.


  18. Nightmare12 Says:

    You’ll be able to translate the remaining 75% in 2 months? While also working on Lost Evolution? That’d be incredible! Thanks, and go team!


  19. Romsstar Says:

    I believe I always said that only the MAIN Story of Decode will be translated by that time. This doesn’t include Menus and Mails and other things.


  20. Nightmare12 Says:

    Yes, I know that. Even with just the story, I think it’ll be a huge accomplishment
    Without going into too much detail, would Decode require the same ASM hacks that you had to do; possibly more? E.g making the menu size bigger to accompany the increased text?


  21. Romsstar Says:

    As a matter of fact since Decode is so much bigger and there are so many more menues, it requires far more ASM Hacks than Redigitize ever did.
    Most require very complex hacking too. The Digitter is one of the difficult candidates.


  22. Nightmare12 Says:

    All of us are really lucky to have you, and your team working on these Digimon games, Romsstar. I wish you nothing but success in life, and further projects


  23. Tex Killer Says:

    Hey, guys!
    It has been a while since I’ve posted here!
    Thanks again for everything you do! Someday, when I buy a new smartphone, I’ll finish Redigitize for sure :P
    Nice to see you all still invested! Please know that we appreciate it!

    By the way, is there a good 3DS emulator for Android? Is it capable of running Decode?


  24. Hallelujah Says:

    I don`t think that they “support” emulators, searching on google is your best bet.

    Also, what was the answer that Rai was expecting… I need to know! ლ(ಠ෴ಠლ)


  25. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Well, we kind of support emulators. We couldn’t make the patch without them, so we need at least one working one. We don’t do a whole lot of “here’s the best settings” kind of stuff since that varies a lot from computer to computer.

    As far as I know, there are no Android 3DS emulators, and almost certainly won’t be for a long time. Citra is the only major one at the moment, and as far as I know, it’s Windows only, though it might also have Linux that I forgot about.


  26. Hallelujah Says:

    Well damn, it must have been about roms or something… I might even be wrong about that… └[⌐■ᗝ■]┘

    SO NEVER MIND THEN, let me go back to stalking and never try to answer based on memory again~! (๏ᨎ๏)

    I`m now also back to being interested in decode since I may be able to play it now. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


  27. Romsstar Says:

    Since Emulators aren’t illegal in the strict sense we can support them, but we don’t support or condone piracy.


  28. sporkymcforkinspoon Says:

    We only support ROMs that people legally create on their own from their legally owned copy of the game. If people acquire it in other ways, we don’t want to know about it.


  29. Hallelujah Says:

    Alright, so that was what I remembered reading on the re:digitize post.
    By the way, what takes more time : the story, the mails or are both in your definition of “Main story”? Because if I remember correctly re:digitize had almost more text in the mails than the story.
    (sorry if I didn`t read the comments properly and missed it)

    Romsstar`s comment about the team finishing the MAIN story in two months made me curious about that. 乁(ಠ෴ಠ)ㄏ

    Also, two different ways to write your name Sporky (I guess you`re on different platforms)? ಠ_ಠ


  30. Romsstar Says:

    I don’t count all mails towards main story except the ones you receive from Vitium or Petrov. So by definition of main story the story takes longer.

    The mails on their own are actually easier to translate, the story is more troublesome.

    I think of the mails and story equaly time consuming, just in different terms.


  31. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Something like that, Hallelujah. When I log in, the spelling with no spaces is the default since WordPress won’t let you have an account name with spaces or capital letters, so usually I manually change it after posting, but sometimes I forget.


  32. Anonymous Says:

    Can you give us a DW1 tool follow up?


  33. Rai Says:

    @Anonymous: It’s a tool, for DW1. It does things to DW1.

    Enjoy your follow up. :D


  34. Romsstar Says:

    DW1 Tool Follow up: We cracked the Model Format. We can view all models now. Working on Export.


  35. shadowpanic Says:

    Each and every update of yours is ultimately vital. You’re still the best translation group ever!


  36. reinz Says:

    Just past by to say good luck and thank you.
    I watch some emulator vid the FPS on FE game still not there yet so it must be hard to test thing out and hope the FPS was better on Digimon now and in future to make the project move more smoothly.


  37. Matthew Knight Says:

    Hey guys,

    Amazing work as always! I loved the hell out of your PSP release, I can’t wait to see what you do with this one!


  38. KainLegacy Says:

    Well i am glad for see you working, but i am waiting is for Lost Story, i hope read the news about that, but still good work, keep doing what only you can or want LOL.


  39. leedtogo Says:

    I am extremely grateful for all your dedicated hardwork. I just started playing redigitize and I can’t believe how flawless the translation is. Keep up the good job! You seriously have my undying gratitude


  40. Rai Says:

    My graphics card died the other day (Got a new one, NVidia GTX 970), and so I come back to see several new posts of thanks and so on.

    It’s pretty awesome to see, you guys deserve it.


  41. Modestas Romanovas Says:

    Hi, so where is Re:Digitize update 1.2 or what is now called? We waiting for it so long now.


  42. Alejandro (@AlejaKaiser) Says:

    Nobody in the team had a 3DS with Hans? I think its better use it and stop wait for an emulator. You can just distribute the text files to load it with hans and the user need own the original game to load it with Hans, so its a legal option for you.

    Sorry for my english if I don’t write properly, I dont speak it very well.


  43. Romsstar Says:

    Alejandro (@AlejaKaiser) :

    This has nothing to do with Hans. We need Debugging Capabilities that go beyond what Hans can do. Trust us we know what we are doing…


  44. Romsstar Says:

    @Modestas Romanovas: It might come some day in the future, but at this point it’s not a priority.


  45. dude Says:

    Hello anybody home? I been lurking this site since the beginning and im sorry this is my 1st time to voice out, i know its not easy to do this and life is hard, but could anyone pls say something? I just want to know if you guys still with us, and even a “!” would just be enough for me, pls keep up work im always rooting for you guys!


  46. Romsstar Says:

    @dude: You post this right under my last comment, that was literally a week ago. What would make you think that this is dead?


  47. dude Says:

    Cuz its so silent and i wanna break it?, and your doing this “big” project for free, none has the right to blame you if you suddenly drop it. Seriously im just rain checking. And the other 2 translation group of another game im following just went missing with a sign “disbanded” due to real life problem just couple of days before their last update,… And you probably take the opposite but im saying this the optimistic way. wew hhahaahah
