Cool beans Plasma! Thanks for your hard work! Are you also working on getting the translation put into the game?

Normatt already has all of that set up, so I don't have to bother with it (except to make sure that everything runs properly, hence the glitch that I mentioned in my previous post).

Its nice to see someone has picked up the translation. If there are any bugs like the glitch you found let me know and I'll set about getting them fixed.

Out of curiosity, what's the status of the project? Is there a finished rom out there?

I've been away from my computer for the last three and a half weeks, so nothing has been accomplished here. Should I complete the text for the first world, I'll go ahead and upload the text files. Hopefully I can get around to translating it all, but as with everything, I cannot guarantee this.

Here are some screens demonstrating some of the progress.

[Collapse Text]



There are some problems, though. Firstly, in the first set of screenshots, look at the one in the bottom left corner, displaying the Karabon menu with Pommy selected. His name is still in Japanese, so it doesn't display correctly. I cannot seem to find the names of the Karabons anywhere within the text files that have been provided.

On top of that, there is a great deal of text that is leftover from Bomberman Story/Tournament (since this game was built directly on top of Bomberman Story). For example, bomberman_script_001.txt includes nothing but the names and attack names of Karabons from Bomberman Story, for Karabon battling purposes. Needless to say, none of that appears in this game. Just glancing through bomberman_script_007.txt, it seems to be entirely comprised of dialogue from Bomberman Story, with boss speeches and text mentioning Fairy Palace, Epsilon, Pommy Beast, etc. With that being said, I don't recall seeing much or any unused text in the other 8 files. However, I am a little concerned that we are missing some text, such as the Karabon names.

Also, there is a strange text glitch in the menus. You can see it in the last two screenshots. Basically, the names of items appear glitched. They only become unglitched if you move the cursor onto a blank space, and then move it onto an item (or, from the items menu, keep the cursor on a blank space and then switch to the bombs menu). However, as soon as the cursor is moved directly to another item/bomb, the names will be glitched again.

The Karabon ability descriptions in the Karabon menu are preceded by some glitched text, but I believe that may simply be because the Karabon names are messed up and that text comes before the description. I have no way of verifying this, though.

Lastly, I'm not sure as to how editing the sprite-based text of menus and such should be approached.

I believe that the majority of the text from the first world is now translated, as well as most item names and descriptions. Karabon descriptions are also translated.

Anyway, if someone could help me out or point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated. Translating this alone takes enough of my time as is.

Looking good. I've taken a look at the item name glitch and from my limited testing I appear to have fixed it. The new code is up on github. If there are any other bugs or glitches let me know and I'll get them fixed.

Yes, that did indeed seem to solve the problem. :happy: 

I'll let you know if something else comes up. Thanks!

Any chance of your translated files being released? I'd love to try out the translation so far. I'll take a look and see if I can find the missing Karabon names and any other missing text. The sprites can be translated however they require more work than simply editing them in photoshop. (They are compressed and made out of tiles, with duplicate tiles removed, and thus it doesn't always appear the same as it does in game when extracted).

I managed to finish translating the majority of the text from the first world late last night-wait a minute. Damn it, plasm beat me to it. Nevermind.

Hahah, I was afraid of this moment. If I could split myself into mutliple entities in order to accomplish all of the tasks that I'd like to, I totally would. But... I'm only one guy. The vast majority of text in bomberman_script_002.txt is translated, but I haven't looked at it in a while. I might have some time later this week, not sure yet. If I can get around to translating everything from the first world, I'll release what I've got so far for sure.

It's good to see this game getting some love. It may not have been one of the best in the series but it was definitely far from being among the worse.

I thought it was a pretty damn good game. A very nice improvement from Tournament, even if I couldn't read anything and kept having to bug plasm to tell me what was going on.

Yeah, better than Tournament, I agree.

I haven't worked with it in quite some time, but I ran into a problem. It seems that there are space limitations, at least in certain areas. Would it be possible to utilize all the wasted space that is being taken up by dialogue from Bomberman Story? By, for example, linking larger pieces of dialogue to unused space (the result would be split chunks of dialogue with other stuff between them).
