Why hello there! Not a whole lot to this update, I’m afraid. There will be the obligatory “not dead” info for Tales of Innocence and some bad news on the Tales of Phantasia v.1.1 front.
First, Tales of Innocence is moving along as always. Kingcom has been taking a little time off from ToI, but he has totally earned it. I’ve been poking at the script and as always, editing the menu text. I will be having someone begin the preliminary edits on ToI’s menu and current script text within the next week, I hope. With any luck, doing these edits early on will save time when we have to do the final editing on the text.
Next, Tales of Phantasia’s version 1.1 has been mentioned here and there since the patch’s initial release almost a year ago. Honestly, I was hoping to have it out by now, but the editor that I had placed my hopes in has vanished. Despite my efforts, I’ve had no word from him in several months now. This is the sad reality of fan projects, people disappear sometimes. I’d still like to make the v1.1, but I don’t know when that will happen now. If I’m going to do the editing myself, I don’t know when I’ll be able to set aside the time to do it. Frankly, ToI is much higher priority for me right now. For the time being, I have little motivation to work on ToP. Ideally I would like to go back and fix all of my mistakes (including rechecking the original Japanese text), but who knows if/when this will happen. I could reopen the search for editors, but I’m uncertain if I want to do that at this time.
Well, that’s about it. I hope this post doesn’t sound as depressing as it does in my head. Things are still moving along with Tales of Innocence, that should be good news for everyone I hope.
