Kingcom and I want to extend our thanks to those of you who have donated to the Tales of Innocence project.
This last week, Kingcom started having some issues with the GPU on his computer, but thanks to the donations that we’ve received, we were able to get him a new one right away. Your donations have helped the project avoid hitting what could have been a serious snag. So really, thank you from both of us.
In other news, I am very pleased to announce that as of yesterday, November 7th, 2009, the base translation for Tales of Innocence is complete. As those of you following me on the forum know, I had been working toward daily goals. I was originally hoping to complete the skit translation by the end of November, so we’re several weeks ahead of schedule in that regard. I decided a week ago to triple my daily goal and attempt to finish the bulk of the translation before I started my full time job. While this pace wouldn’t have been sustainable over a longer period of time, it allowed me to complete the translation well ahead of my original plan. That means that only editing and beta testing stand between us and a release date. While Yuli and I will be doing our best to get through the editing as quickly as we can, we don’t want to compromise the quality of it.
As for a release date, that’s something we can talk about once the beta begins. And speaking of the beta, we are NOT looking for more people to test at this time. If we do need more people, we will contact people who we think would make good testers. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but posting comments that you want to be a beta tester isn’t going to help anyone’s case at this point. It will be a closed beta of people that we know and trust.
Well, that’s about all I’ve got for now. Until next time. ^_^
