Anyone around here could help us with some Photoshop skills? We're going to do a scanlation of both PSX and Saturn manuals (PSX is complete thanks to Takamichi's translation, but it'll need a rewrite), and while I can use the Cloning tool kinda decently, there's stuff that might need a better reconstruction (The character's pictures, etc...)

We're also doing a PAL PSX cover, and probably Saturn covers.

I still wonder if dubbing is possible. Snatcher had an English dubbed version for the SEGA CD and I recall that Konami was going to localize Policenauts on this exact system, but due to subtitle timing issues... Well, we all know what happened.

Also, it's not easy for fans to find good AND low-price actors. And what about the recording equipment? The distance between the team members, if it's international?

That's one of the main problems - GOOD equipment costs $$$. And every actor needs it, so - moar $$$.

I never said I had intentions on doing an English dub. I just said that, technically (Meaning: Being able to extract and edit the audio files) it's possible.

But, as you said, it'd require this:
- Marc re-doing the script so it adapts to everyone's mouths and amount of time used in the Japanese version. Cos, if you don't remember, he kept his translation economical.
- Finding actors, casting them, directing them, editing their audios, reconstructing some tracks (The MOV files, as I said some time ago).

Etc, etc, etc.

I haven't seriously digged in lips movements, but i think they might be changeable. Still, you would need to make a complete tool to extract, edit and reinsert new lips movements into game code.. and that could be really tough.

It slowed down a bit but it's not dead at all. Everyone's doing their parts with the little time they have, and preparing a couple of new surprises from the PSX patch.

Okay, so here's a question: how do you guys feel about the altering of lines? Obviously typos will be fixed, but what I mean is changing the translation of a handful of lines because in the time between the original project and this project, I've come up with better ways of saying them.

I'm hesitant to do this because I remember playing The Twin Snakes and feeling let down when coming across a line that was different from the original MGS. We all have our favorite lines in a work of writing, and changing them kind of feels like tampering. Plus, I would guess that most people who will play the Saturn patch will have already played the PlayStation patch and are familiar with the translation. That said, I do think that any changes will be for the better (I think the main problem with The Twin Snakes' changes is they were all universally regarded as being for the worse)... but subjectively speaking, some players may not like a particular change.

So what do you guys think? It would be nice to hear from as many of you as possible.

I'll be fine with it as long as those changes are also included in the next version of the PlayStation patch to keep things consistent.

I'm totally fine with it!. As a matter of fact, if any doubts, We (final users) would find those lines refreshing, along with the new stuff provided with Saturn's edition.

Did you speak of those aditions with IlDucci, for the spanish translation? That'd be great!

PD: I watched on youtube the intro, translated to spanish. It's friggin awesome!.

But I do have a question, that you (native english speakers) could answer accuratelly:

BEYOND COAST , AS A "PLACE" translates more like "Coast of Beyond" than "Beyond of the Coast", right?
In the spanish translation, they translated it as "Mas Allá de la Costa" (Beyond of the Coast //farther than Coast) and I just can't help but to think that "Costa del Mas Allá" (Coast of Beyond) is the way to go.
I hope I made myself clear with that. What do you think?

That line will be removed in the final version. There was some complaints about it on the EOL forums, and that was just to clarify the name, as the whole Spanish translation keeps using Beyond or Beyond Coast in English.

Also, Marc's additions are already being used on the Spanish translation.

Sorry for asking (I didn't want to make a new thread on this) but the project is still going, right?

I just can't help but worry when we don't hear anything about it for a while (like the Ace Combat 3 translation)...
