    Xenosaga I & II DS

    Adrak wrote:I'm still quite interested in it myself. I was thinking of importing it soon and playing it, even though I don't speak a word of Japanese. I just feel compelled to as a huge fan of the series, and it looks really interesting. I also hear the music is completely changed, and I'd like to hear the new tracks for myself.

    @Neosmith wrote:Actually, the translation patch by the Romhackers hasn't fallen through. It's just consistently delayed, like George Martin's Dance with Dragons. A.C. ,however, has been in contact with them and they've begun providing a few English translations of the DS UMN database over on Xenotensei.

    Xernie8D wrote:Yup, I'm still interested in the game. I have Romhackers' site bookmarked to check their (VERY slow) progress on the translation. It's probably going to be another few years before they ever finish it, but hey, I'm fine with that. As long as they do finish it, that is.

    @kare_reiko wrote:Right, anyone know how to upload set of subs to youtube video, I made subs (with hⓂs type of timing) with translation from Xenoten and they didn't work good after upload to youtube. Any ideas?

    katimus wrote:Hmm, Kare, I just tried uploading a new video to youtube myself, and it doesn't seem to be giving me any option to input anything but video to it.  I've seen a couple of apps floating around like the http://yt-subs.blogspot.com/2010/01/how-to-upload-subtitles-to-youtube.html]youtube subtitler[/url], but barring those, looks like you might have to compress them into your existing video.  Looks like that would be a REALLY big pain, tho.  What application did you make your subtitles in?  Or is it just a text file?

    I had to dig on XenoTen for these links, but if people want yzak's images, they are available here:
    http://yzak.nu/xenods/
    And the Xenoten Translation threads are here:
    http://forums.xenotensei.com/index.php?topic=248.0
    http://forums.xenotensei.com/index.php?topic=620.0

    (And at least the thing about Dance with Dragons is that it actually came out, but GRRM certainly took his time.)

    @kare_reiko wrote:I wanted to add file into gameplay videos that I have on my youtube. And yeah, I made it as .txt file in notepad.

    katimus wrote:Since I don't have a PC, I don't think I'd have any luck with experimenting with that Youtube Subtitler app, otherwise I'd be doing it in a heartbeat.  What I could do is probably take your text file and manually put the subtitles on in iMovie or AfterEffects, but that would be a lot of hard, time-consuming work, and not a very efficient way of doing things.

    Adrak wrote:From what I hear, you can mod DS cartridges. When the DS fan translation is ever completed, I'll definitely mod my copy. A part of me wants to just buy a whole new copy, just so I can have it in both Japanese and English for collector's purposes.

    katimus wrote:Derp, Kare, I goofed.

    There is a way to do this caption-wise:
    Go under your video manager for that particular video and go under Captions.

    That should lead you where you need to go.

    RE: Adrak, not sure if I'd wanna physically modify something like that.  I'll just be sticking to my emulators.  ^^

    @kare_reiko wrote:kat, I did it this way, but after uploading file and check, text was showed not on right time. I was going to see other file formats etc but I too busy lately Sad
    I thought about add text into video file but that too will be a lot work (rendering, reuploading), so I will see. If all else fail then I will do this in this way

    Agh, poop.  Well, looks like that's a little more headway than you had been before, right?

    I'll be doing the same. I think my No$GBA/No$Zoomer emulator is a bit outdated, though. I'll have to check that sometime.

    I'll be avoiding the subtitled videos for now (when they're made). I prefer to wait till the translation project is complete and just play the game for myself. If I watch a subtitled version now I'll be less motivated to play through the story later (besides, watching it isn't as fun as playing it).

    I still plan on playing this game on my R4 at some point, though I don't know Japanese so it'll be using a walkthrough/my knowledge of the PS2 games/Zohar Project's info. XD My main interest in this game is that they gave Richard and Hermann more screen time and actual physical appearances! XD

    Gonna do some link dropping here, if you don't mind. :3

    http://www.zohar-project.com/jeuxderives/undeux/modifs.php
    Here is the page on Zohar Project which lists the changes between the PS2 games and the DS game (in French).

    Most of the chapters were translated at Xeno Tensei, I think, but I don't feel like looking for them, so you guys can go find them if you need to. I mangled translated the last three, which can be found
    http://lady-twi.livejournal.com/19121.html - here,
    http://lady-twi.livejournal.com/19216.html - here, and

    So, I've been meaning to ask you - I never did finish working on chapter 17. Would you be interested in finishing the summary for that one?

    Alrighty!

    So, here's the link to my original translation page: http://forums.xenotensei.com/index.php?topic=342.0

    And here is the French page for chapter 17:

    I ordered the game and it should be arriving in a few weeks, so I'll make sure to give my opinions on the game once I play it.

    I think I got all the way up to the fight with the Gargoyle on the Cathedral Ship on my R4, but not any further than that because the fight tutorial was lost on me and I didn't use a walkthru. orz

    I just got the game today, and I'm in the Woglinde. I'm really liking this game, the music is great. I just really wish I knew Japanese to get the full experience. I get a little excited when I recognize one of the few kanji characters I know, like 'boku' (僕) or 'kokoro' (心). <img src=" title="Laughing" /> The battle mechanics are also really fun.

    I went to Ohayocon last weekend and saw three copies of the game. :-O So, yeah, I picked one up. I haven't played much, but I really enjoyed the battle system of what I did play.

    Sorry, what with university and all it isn't very high on my priority list. I'll get around to it maybe on reading week.

    So, I just noticed in artwork -which Katimus linked me to in another topic- that Jr. is wearing two earrings in the DS game (or at least in these images). Is there an explanation for that?

    As for Jr I think they made earrings on both side to not do more graphic for Jr. Image is flipped to right or left, so it could mess up that earring is only on left ear. As I check DS guide arts and for example that one have it in only one ear:

    https://redcdn.net/ihimg/f/32/scene44.png/
    Picture of special attack have one earring too, so it's only on sprites

    ^ Oh, I see. Kind of a weird decision. But I did notice the DS artwork guide only had him wearing it on his left ear, so I figured something wasn't quite right.

    In that guide there's also a drawing of young Albedo wearing some kind of earring as well? There's a description next to it in Japanese, which I obviously can't read. Does there happen to be some kind of connection with Jr.'s earring or is it just a design they left out of the game?
    (Can't believe I never noticed that before, lol)

    Oh, I see it. Well it only was showed at that one page, no were else in game you can't see it.
    Anyway about that earring, once on Soraya DA were picture were she draw older Albedo with the same earring. She wrote that in story those earrings were suppose to be gift from their mother. Both Jr and Albedo were suppose to wear one of them.

    Oh, I didn't know about that yet. That's a cool extra bit of info. Then perhaps the identity of their mother might have originally been revealed at some point too. Interesting... anyways, thanks. ^^

    I'd be very interested to see who URTV-Mom is. *A*
    That is really cool about the earrings, though.

    Wow. I never heard of that before.

    But didn't Jr. use an earring to create a bracelet for Momo in Episode 1? Or am I mistaking that?

    Neosmith, nah, he just take from pocked some chain and bullet and fused them together.

    I remember it was info to the picture, someone asked about earring and she said what I told you. Later when she turn off comments it was lost and as I see now picture is no longer on her DA. I remembered this because it was nice info. Soraya has many pictures about URTV on her DA and japan gallery
