Current Focus: Menu Revision (ToPX), mentally preparing for ToS PC

I had hoped to have the ToPX menu revision done before the end of January, but I didn’t quite get there. I underestimated how much work it would be to marry up three translations. The results thus far have assured me that it’s worth the effort, but there’s still a lot of work left before it’s done.

Tales of Destiny R

I made some tweaks to the ToDR menu text based on the ToPX menu edits, but it was incidental at best.

Tales of Phantasia X

Over the past month I finished up the retranslation of ToPX’s menu and began the process of merging the better parts of the old ToP PSX translations into it. So far the focus on the editing has primarily been on the artes, but I also worked on some of the system text. Kingcom fixed the Groovy Arche minigame and also got the game to save player progress for the new synopsis feature. Finally, we posted some ToP/ToDR/ToD2-spoiler heavy discussion of some of the Mystic Artes and what goes into naming them. The post generated some interesting conversation, so probably once we have a semi-finalized arte list, I’ll post all of them to allow people to share their opinions on the rest.

No new progress.

  2. All I see is progress. Good luck to you guys. I’ll always support you from the shadows. haha

  3. Thanks for these frequent updates. On a side note, not really exited about ToS PC since I already played it in HD thanks to Dolphin, and the battle system has not aged well IMO.

  4. I check this website daily to see if there’s any new post. I love updates!

    Also, can’t wait for ToS PC. I only played the xbox version, so I can’t wait for all the new features!

  5. Looking good. Nice to see a little taste every month.

  6. Phantasia was my first and still the favorite. I was quite happy when I saw you guys doing it.

  7. Woo-hoo more TOP:X Progress, can’t wait to play the definitive ToP.

  8. I’m seeing some good stuff.

    Hope Tales Of Destiny R will be the first to come out, I’m dying to see it!

    Good luck!
