Good day to you all. Thought I’d give an update on things around here.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m working on translating the Japanese version of the game that was known here as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. In Japan, it was called Akumajou Dracula X: Gekka no Yasoukyoku (Demon Castle Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight).
Gemini (the person who really did all the work) has his thread over at Romhacking.net. If you’d like to visit there and make a comment or thank him, I certainly encourage it. His thread can be found here. Most of what he’s done in the thread has been related to his original Italian release of the patch, but even so, you can see the awesome quality and skill of his work. He’s put a ton into this project, and I’ve been glad to have been able work with him and help bring this to an English speaking audience.
Once this project is done, I’ll be working on other things, but that’s my number one priority right now. The translating is very nearly complete. I hope to have it wrapped up by the end of the weekend, if not the end of the day. After that, I want to give it a thorough once-over, but I’ll be sure to give an update here when it’s complete. If I can, I’ll try to offer the patch for download here on Absolute Zero as well.
Also, I have to say that my blog got a shocking amount of traffic (and an even more shocking number of spam comments) in the last few days. Thing is, I have no idea why. All I know is that it apparently came from this address. http://www.blackcats-games.net/details.php?id=11949 This seems to be a members-only torrent site from what I can gather. I’m not a member, so I can’t see, but if anyone is, could you help me and tell me anything about this site? I’m just curious in what context all of these people are coming here for, although based on the number of downloads of the translation, I would certainly assume that it’s related to Tales of Phantasia (I mean, that’s all that’s really here). ^_^;; Or maybe I just got spam attacked. Who knows? Not me, but if you do, throw a comment my way!
