Upgrading to the new 2022 2.1 SMF core (years in WIP)! Mobile/Phone support by default, finally! I must port all my custom features and redo the theme however, but worth the trouble! I may still look at XenForo too.

Quote from: guestI'd love to play it in English (it's got neat art), but I think it's sadly been abandoned.
Quote from: tknjin on February 13, 2018, 06:23:36 AMI have been wanting to get some people to do a translation with me. I would even be willing to help the programmers out by lending them my copies of the pc98 editions and pc engine versions to them. Although I have no idea how to get a team together to do such a project.
Quote from: cccmar on February 13, 2018, 04:34:36 PMSlowbeef (the Youtuber guy you may or may not have heard about) has been working on and off on a PC-98 port of this game, but I don't know how far along he is. You'd have to ask him about it probably. VNs are sadly the hardest to translate, because of the amount of text. This especially pertains to the ones for older, more obscure systems. Well, sometimes RPGs are worse I guess, due to all the menus. Some projects are relatively easy - like the PCE HuCard games we did (War of the Dead, Out Live, Gai Flame etc.) PCE-CD games are considerably more difficult to work on, which is likely why you almost never see fan-translations for it - most of the translation groups are very Nintendo-centric anyway. By that I mean, there aren't any PCE-dedicated groups, like AGTP in the case of SNES. Anyhow, I hope either slowbeef or someone else finishes this game at some point. The PC-98 version would likely be easier to hack. One person made a translated walkthrough of it on YT, too (don't remember if he finished it or not) -That's the best you're gonna get for now, I think.
Quote from: @Shadoff_d 7:01 PM - 28 Sep 2018I finally got a chance to rewrite the PC Engine Dead of the Brain print function to my liking. It can also now intersperse 12x12 kanji and 8x12 roman characters. ...Now to work on script reinsertion.Oh, the same print function is used in DotB 1 and 2, so that's a bonus.
