Current Focus: Tales of Destiny R main story

May went really well. I got a whole lot of translating done, particularly in the early part of the month. As of the beginning of May, I had only just started on the second act. I hadn’t yet finished the initial events with Stahn’s family in Lienea. Since then, I cruised through gathering up the team and uncovering the further machinations of the game’s villains. At this point, I’m at the midpoint of the initial Aethersphere assault. I would be a little further, but that I was a little under-leveled for, so I’m having to grind a bit before I continue.

In other news, Kingcom made some more progress on that crucial back-end system, Kaji worked on tweaking some of text and visuals on the menus, and ruta got the rest of the tools working on her end. All in all it was one of the more productive months we’ve had in a while. My hope is to finish up translating the second act story events in the next few weeks. Still a little ways to go, but if I can keep up my average pace as of late, I should manage.

  1. Wow, really good news, keep up the good work everyone šŸ™‚

  2. great to hear such good news šŸ˜€ Can’t wait to play it

  3. Alright, good to hear everything is back on track

  4. How many acts are?

  5. That’s wonderful to hear! I’m really happy that things are going well, thank you so much for your hard work.

    All the best to you and the rest of the team! I can’t thank you enough for translating the game I’ve been dying to play for ages <3

  6. Haha you know it’s going well when the thing that is holding you back is your low levels. We definitely need a Kingcom blog update at some point too, the programming he’s doing on this project sounds interesting.

  7. Whoa you guys are amazing šŸ˜€
    I’m really happy to see that the project is going well
    Keep it up!

  8. This is amazing news. So happy to hear about tho. Both my brother and myself have been following this for years. Tales of destiny, ever since we first got it going on our ps1, has always been one of the few things my brother and I have shared together and we are both constantly checking back here.

  9. Wow, sounds like you had a very good break through. My thanks to you, and your pals helping out.

    & ruta

    With their help, and maybe possible others if they can help in anyway, you’ll really breeze through.

    I’m looking forward to the day Tales Of Destiny R can come into the light. Just like the day Tales Of Vesperia PS3 was given an English Batch to help us play through & understand what’s happening, what’s going on, & what to do.

    Maybe someday in the future when the other projects get done, maybe someone will work on Tales Of Innocence R, unless someone already is, but either way, that’s a game I’m most eager to witness.

    Till that time, major good luck to everyone doing Destiny R, June’s the special summer beginning, and this is definitely the season to enjoy one’s self. Good luck…and enjoy the summer that’s almost near…

  10. Splendid! You all made quite the progress last month. Eager to hear how this month goes. Great update and have a great month

  11. Sounds like everyone really did get a lot done. I’m very interested to hear about this “back-end” part of the project; I love technical aspects of games but have no hacking skills to actually work on them, but enjoy reading other people’s articles on their own discoveries/work.

    Sending you all the Revitalize Arte to give you the strength needed to keep on trucking.

  12. Wow. That’s some nice team work! By the way, I’ve just checked http://www.tales-cless.org/ and reading the latest news there from late last year it appears that the site may not even continue to be up and running sooner or later. So have you been in contact with Cless, who maintains that website and see if it can be rescued, throughhim413?

  13. Always nice to read the monthly report and more so when it’s a good month. Thanks for al the work. Any chance of getting a video or at least some screenshots?

  14. I had this feeling that things were going well for you guys this month and then I read this. I could feel that something had changed inside your team and suddenly the wheels of motivation started moving again like never before (I have experienced this for myself as well) so this makes me increbily happy for you and your team. There are many behind you cheering you on, in those lonely hours, always you remember. You are FAR from alone in your mission. With love & support, keep it up!

  15. You doods are legends

  16. i always look forward to these posts every month from you guys. it’s good to hear that you’re doing so well on this project here.

  17. Once the translation is finished, would you mind if I shared it on Tumblr?

  18. Wow, this sounds amazing! I’m always waiting for new updates every month and I’m glad to hear that things are going back on track again. Thanks so much for putting so much time and effort into translating this game!
