A bit of a belated birthday wish.This update has a screenshot, some updates on the translation, and some complaints.
It’s been quite a while since our last update. As some of you may know, Tales of Innocence had its big first birthday this last week, so that’s cool. I was out of town, so we weren’t able to make an update that day, but better late than never. With that out of the way, we have a new screenshot to show off.
First of all, we show off a little bit of the summary text. Translating the summary is really boring, but I guess maybe someone will read it someday (though I never do). Perhaps more importantly, we at last have the conclusion to the Great Bottom Screen Debates. I’m sure people remember our last discussions about how to format the bottom screen – well, this is what we decided on. We felt that we should have the Name line in order to keep the screen balanced, but we really liked the idea of having the text left justified. Thanks especially to thedicemaster, Kaji, and Carnivol for helping us to make this decision, we hope that you’re happy with the final result.
Overall, this past week was one of our most productive in a very long time. I got a fair amount of translating done and Kingcom made some great progress on hacking. As he it wrapping up some of the remaining loose ends, I’m just getting started. I’ll be moving slowly for the next few weeks as I complete my finals, but I hope to make a lot of progress during winter break.
And now some things that have been bothering me:
I want people to stop posting comments asking when this project will be done. I said that it will be done early next year.
I want people to stop assuming that we have stopped working on this project. We aren’t going to quit. And if we did, don’t you think we’d say something?
I want people to read more recent posts instead of commenting on the announcement one. I realize this is the problem with a blog and it’s my fault for not updating enough, but encourage people to check the more recent posts.
I’m doing my best to keep people informed, but I really get nothing out of making these updates. My time would be better spent working on the translation or studying up. I’m doing these updates for you guys, because I know that people want to know what’s going on. I don’t mean to sound like a bitchy project leader (because I don’t like that kind of attitude either). I’m just asking you guys to bear with me and hang in there. I want to make the final result something that will be worth the wait, so just believe in me a bit. That’s all for today.
