I agree with you, But I still don't find it worth the effort just to be able to play a slightly differnt version of a game you can play normally on a differnt system, especially with all the technical problems I've already mentioned.
As for the approval of Kojima, I don't see whats the big deal. Sure its his game, but thats not to say that if it doesn't go by him then its no good.
Reinserting the text from the Sega CD version? What is this, a fucking joke! I can't stress enough how that won't work. If they did, it would require recoding the Text Display, Font, and other Graphical Display Routines; which will take forever or just wont happen.
I forgot to mention that theres no way to translate the spoken scenes and display them along with the game without trying to modify the game, which is rediculous considering Act 3. I mean come on, look how long the Policenauts translation took, even after Slowbeef joined; and they didn't have to do anywhere near the amount of work that would take.
If there's truly anything I want to see, its a re-translation of the MSX2 version.
The grammar is truly ludicrous in the way it bounces from perfecty good English to just plain stupidity.
Metal: "Remember the Junker 5 bylaws, you cant just hurt around the people."
I understand his first language isn't English, but they could have at least let someone proof read it. On top of that some lines are even accidentally left in Portuguese from the original translation! The sad part is it will probably never get fixed, same with SD Snatcher. Would you ever expect Gillian to walk into a Morgue and call it a "CHARNEL ROOM", (It said "Morgue" in the Japanese version!) or Metal to say "CHEER UP MAN" after Gillian finds out he worked on the Snatchers?
The game has spelling errors up the ass: "OFF COURSE" and "THREATH", seriously?
I'm not ungrateful, but this is just too sad a situation to be left alone. Just like the Illusion City translation; 6 of the 8 Disks get translated and then the hacker just up and decides to sell his MSX equipment and leaves without any warning or letting anyone continue.
