    Hi everybody,

    My my, apparently we will have to be very very patient before the patch get released. Look at the comments #8 about Xenosaga here :

    Alright! I'm pretty sure it's gonna come out this year. If anyone here gets it, please upload a playthrough via youtube that really looks at all the dialogue, events, etc. Also, we're definitely gonna need someone to do a UMN Database transcript!

    I'm so ready for this ahhhhhhhhhhh
    It's gonna be great to see some more Citrine, plus the database entries for the entire Episode II section. uwu

    AND everyone will get to see Gaignun's substory. Which is, honest to god, the best thing I have ever witnessed. (But I am biased. Very biased. Extremely biased. Oh lord.)

    Oh wow, I haven't seen most of those either. I know I've seen some of those before, but not in the same place.

    Sorry to up this topic though nothing new happen.
    Just to say that when the patch will be done, it would be a good idea to make a video walkthrough on Youtube.

    Kare reiko did a good one on her Youtube channel.

    But I think it is also a good idea to make a playlist of a walkthrough without training and exploring , so as to concentrate on the dialogs since surely many Xenofans are only interested in this. Epic Battles need to be reduced : just showing the beginning, some special attacks and the end.

    P.S. : I know that Desmume (a Nintendo DS emulator) possess a great recording-screen option.

    Well I always can record it when it come out in english. I will play it on emulator anyway. I would leave story and at last boss fights and rest gameplay cut off.

    7 months after the last post, no news about Xenosaga I.II, but the team has achieved "Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei", and some new hacking tools.

    Maybe we should consider the idea of providing some help for hacking/translating/beta-testing ?

    From what I know, the script for it is done but they should have a lot of bugs to work through - you guys could reach out. AC was apparently in touch with them before Tensei went down.

    I looked around for their contact information and FAQ, and they actually do have a section regarding beta testers:

    Can I be a beta-tester?

    This question isn’t coming much yet, but I’m sure it’ll pop up when we’re announcing the next beta.
    The requirements for becoming a beta tester are pretty high, but the most important part is that we have to know you. We’ll never hand the beta patch to a complete stranger, so don’t even ask about it if you’ve been a silent fan so far. Sorry, but the risk of a leak or of shoddy beta work is just too high. We already made some negative experiences with DQM’s beta test. You’re chances are best if we know you from a forum we frequent or even better, from IRC. Speaking of which, I think we never mentioned before that Kingcom and I are always hanging around #Romhacking.net @ the SynIRC network. If you ever wanted to chat with us, we’re usually there (GMT Timezone). I thought about creating a dedicated IRC channel for the group, but I don’t think we’d have enough activity to keep it alive, so we’re sticking with the RHDN IRC for now.

    I did some research and it looks like Romhacking.net is still up, as is synIRC, but it takes a long time to really get to know someone. It's still a little worth a shot, though, I think. I wonder if AC got anywhere with it.

    Hai guise, I dunno if anyone else has stumbled across this yet, but I was looking for the DS sprites this morning and I found http://www.spriters-resource.com/ds/xenosagaiii - this page which seems to have pretty complete sets for the character portraits as well as the player sprites, so I just figured I'd toss that out there as a backup to the Xenobytes collection. :3

    My boss was talking about XSI & II today. Any word anywhere on the translation patch, or if a complete english walkthrough was ever made?

    The only thing about I've been able to find is the incomplete list of plot changes on the wiki and a huge-ass gif with a retelling of a new scene for Allen. Which I assume you are already familiar with.

    Ah well. It was worth asking. ^^ Thanks, Yikari! If anyone has any other info from elsewhere, it'd be appreciated!

    Also, thanks for finding that other sprite rip page, Stitched. There's a lot more stuff there than I thought. Very Happy

    Not since February 2014, from the looks of the Xenosaga 1 & 2 tag:

    Hello everyone !
    Oh my, once again, a dusty topic^^

    Soooo, to sum up, the last time the team called ‘’Aerie-wingdreams’’ told us news about their fan-translation of Xenosaga I.II (the game of the Nintendo DS) was...more than 4 years ago :
    Link

    No news since then.
    So I guess there is nothing more to expect from that team. Sadly  Crying or Very sad

    For information, a certain person I know seems interested in fully fan-translating this game and creating an English-patch.
    But not now, since he is too busy with other stuff right now.
    Besides, nothing is decided yet. This is just an idea. So please, do not bother him about this.

    In the meantime, I remind you that many parts of this game have already been fan-translated by Xeno-fans (Jinx and Gwendal, for example).
    You can find and read all those fan-translations on this Wiki page I created :
    Link

    Also, recently, I created this YouTube video below.
    This video is about probably one of the saddest but also one of the most intriguing scenes only present in Xenosaga I.II (DS) : the death of Sakura Mizrahi, shown as a flashback.
    In fact, it’s a video of the game, and I added English subtitles thanks to the translations I have.
    I’m sure you will like it  Smile
    Here it is :


    In the future, I will maybe create more videos like this. Maybe.
    But not now : I am too busy with my current translation project, more info here :
    Link

    BTW, don’t hesitate to check the other videos of my YouTube channel : there are a lot of videos related to Xenosaga !

    Hey folks. Neosmith here.

    Haven't posted in a while but I thought I should add a little info to the whole Romhacking Aerie thing, since I'm pretty sure their project is dead.

    Around December 2012, I was in contact with A.C. from Xenotensei. He was in contact with the Romhackers Aerie and emailed me to request that I don't make any more requests to our local fan translator Gwendal to translate the Xenosaga DS wiki, which has extensive summaries/dialogues from the game, because the Romhackers were almost finished with the translation and would post about it soon.

    Basically they seemed to be virtually done with the plot and database, but had to also do play testing and stuff. AC was gracious enough to pass me some excerpts from the DS translated database, which was cool. At the time I was still writing essays about XS and was looking for new info on the DS continuity.

    It's been several years since then and I don't know what's going on - I haven't emailed AC about it, but I do think the project collapsed for one reason or another.

    I was asked to keep this info to myself, but since it's been years and we've seen nothing, I feel it's time to let the few remaining XS fans out there know that, yes, that project seemed to be on the verge of realization at some point. But now, it's likely dead.

    I'm really sad about this, but unfortunately, stuff like this happens.

      Current date/time is Thu Aug 16, 2018 5:15 pm
