Default Translation Release: Space Knight Tekkaman Blade

http://d.the2d.com/index.php?p=154http://d.the2d.com/index.php?p=154</a>

And people thought Der Langrisser took a long time! I've been trying to get help to finish this game since 1998.

As some of you may know my favorite childhood cartoon was Tekkaman Blade, this is the obligatory SNES game.

Extensive help from byuu on this one.

It's been tested and plays perfectly on a real SNES too, so if you have a copier or a flash cart that might be better.

Read the readome, la la la.

That show was awesome when I was 11. I found it right after Ninja Turtles started to go down the shitter.

Awesome!

...

Say, uhh, I had to notice that you mentioned the Der Langrisser translation in the past tense...


ISITDONEISITDONEISITDONEISITDONE!?!?!?

Sorry, I have this belief that when a complete translation of Der Langrisser is released, there will be a short period of world peace followed by all of mankind achieving nirvana.

The script translation was finished earlier this month by DragonmasterX, and a Japanese girl (forget her name, MK knows) did the epilogues. I quit working on translating the scripts in January because I was burnt out of DL, so they deserve a major thanks.

Right now MK is working on playtesting every scenario to make sure context is right and no scripts explode from missing tags. As he finishes them, EricKei has been doing editing. I have been doing the second editing over his work.

Byuu has a little programming left to touch up, but that's mostly done. All we have left once all editing is done is a period of private playtesting (don't ask to help) to make sure everything is smooth, and then it should be ready to go.

Be aware though, edits will take a while. Think about how long edits took on stuff like DQ5, DQ6, FF4 and FF6. Those games didn't have much more than 300KB script. Der Langrisser is now and even 800KB of English.

That's a lot.

Most discussion regarding DL can be found at http://coes.the2d.com/http://coes.the2d.com/</a>. Since the bulk of news is editing and nitpicking of localization (what is acceptable, what is accurate, what would be considered fucking like a tiger, etc) none of us really post updates about it. There's no point.

That's absolutely awesome to hear; keep up the good work, your tenacity is admirable. I might also add that the screenshots look great.

Given Cowering cannot decide on a consistent method of rendering Japanese titles, it could be listed under Uchuu, Uchu, Utyuu, Utyuu, or possible the babelfish rendering, "Horseman of Outer Space."

No, I believe translating the sound effect for a grunt of agreement, "umu," as "You bear." is the greatest flub ever.
