The final Super Famicom/SNES game released, proceeding the GameCube's announcement by mere months, and the hardest Fire Emblem game is now in English!

e56a71  No.16527052


A group formed just for this translation. Nothing as far as I know, though there are likely some name translations are retarded because they're keeping consistency with the official translations of Heroes and Awakening and kept stupid things NoA did first.

I thought all the old FE games were already translated. This is the only one I never even attempted to play, so I just assumed.

Is it actually worth it? Saying it’s the “hardest” doesn’t really mean anything, are the maps actually interesting? Interesting gameplay elements?

I liked FE1 and 3, but disliked 2 and 4. 6 is my all time favorite, and in general I like the gba games, so if it’s anything like them that would be nice.

e56a71  No.16527218


FE5's translation was very rough and unfinished.

Maps are absolutely more interesting than 2 and 4, which are the lowest points in map design before 13/14.

5057c4  No.16527221


Its got the most mechanical oddity; its got strangeness everywhere.

Judging by your choices being 2 and 4; thracia will probably good for you, as the flaws with those games was fucked maps.

Thracia has a lot of interesting map choices.

It is however a game that likes to attempt to kick you in the balls though.

And it really is a madmans game; with movement growth, movement stars and the early broken as fuck dancers and insane staffs.

c11e8a  No.16527289


Early manster chapters are pretty interesting in that it has a "use what you got" theme going on with it. Later escape chapters get pretty fucking crazy with enemies swarming you everywhere, it's definitely one of the better FE games.

It was also the last game the series creator worked on and released before leaving Nintendo. I don't like the current dev that's put in charge of the series.

I just played through level 1, it seems quite good in my estimation. The capture idea is pretty neat; a nice risk/reward idea. The starting units are interesting as well: Marty is quite the polarizing tank.

I did just that, anon. The problem was after I learned enough Japanese to do whatever I want without having to worry about shitty translators imposing their will on other people's shit or whether something was ever going to get translated at all, I realized that I would be spending significant amounts of time translating things only to produce something inherently inferior to the original, even if I did a great job translating it, and that I could instead spend that time playing untranslated video games. Learning Japanese was the largest hit to my motivation to become a translator.

Whatever you could have translated, it would have been better than the pozzed shit everyone has to deal with.

We need more people like you out there translating where all these Lefty and pozzed faggots are flooding the scene with their "fan localization."

a4d94d  No.16529092


Because game translation takes more work than just converting Japanese text to English, especially in older games. For instance, English text usually takes more characters to say the same thing in Japanese, meaning you can run into an issue where English text takes too much storage space compared to the original script. Then you have to figure out what to do to make your English script fit into the game. It takes both language skills and technical skills to translate games.

"“Very well, then we shall meet again. Good luck!” to "Gods willing, we'll all meet again. Fortune be with you!" this kind of thing seems to crop up a lot in over localisations i find.

Much reference to god that is not there in the original giving an implication of religion or religious belief that just isn't there. The Kiseki localisations suffer really badly from it so much praise Aidos this thank Aidos that you would think the whole world super religious when in fact very few people in the original script reference the goddess by name or even at all.

d71625  No.16529278


Generally, the kind of people who are autistic enough to translate an entire game for free are the kind of people who absolutely should not do so. This goes doubly so for fire emblem, because the only people who are still meaningfully dedicated to the series either loved fates/awakening or diehard, nostalgia driven weebs. Both groups have garbage taste and neither should be trusted.

This is why a lot of niche translation groups, particularly good ones, do primarily or exclusive menu translations; translating the full story for a non-literate audience is an absurd amount of work, and even modestly japanese-literate individuals can use "vnhooking" tools to translate unfamiliar terms on-the-go.

085ca8  No.16529282


The big fuck around especially with older games is the hacking rather than the translation. Your often stuck with text space limitations that require some insane work to get around as well as the nightmares that come from having to reprogram menus and shit as well.

You retards know that nips are working with the localization bureaus to self censor their games, right? Even that guy from Xseed that was so anti-censor gladly said that he wanted to help nips self censor so that he wouldn't have to censor their games, and he was one of the least tainted people in the localization industry. Learning Japanese won't save you, and your disregard for the horrible state of localization does nothing but worsen the situation. If no one cares, these fuckups will do whatever they want with no backlash, and of course they will use that as an excuse to make Japan self censor more.

Honestly, I agree. Learning Japanese isn't some miracle fix that means you'll never encounter a censored game again in your life; Soyny proved that and it's only going to get worse as we near the Olympic and those with (((corruptive interests))) start to flock harder to Japan. Those "I HAVE A BACKLOG SO I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE" faggots are also at fault, for willingly allowing shit to get worse and worse because by sticking their heads in the nostalgia ground.

Just one thing though:


Call it translation and nothing more. Pozzfags like to use "localizing to American audiences" as an excuse for dramatic changes.

I dunno. A good localization can make meanings make a lot more sense. But I feel it requires someone who's a wholesome pure human being who actually wants the meaning and reasoning of the OG work to transfer as accurately as possible. And knows it takes more than a flat direct translation to work in any meaningful way.

I feel like the only way we'll get anything of worth is if the creator actively wants an English audience and wants more out of the localizing team and wont tolerate censorship and all that gay shit. The few times I've seen "Localization" being somewhat not shit is Ace Attorney series prior to the 3ds American sequels.

If everyone learned Japanese and got their games directly from the source then localization would lose its power and die, retard.

You sound a little bit upset, and it feels like you're lashing out at people who aren't part of the problem at all.

I have a backlog so I don't care what happens to the industry. This means that I want the industry to fail, to collapse, to be destroyed. I am not contributing to the problem. Just ask yourself this: "Have I purchased, in any capacity, new or used, any of the games with poor localizations that I am complaining about?"

I'll tell you what my answer is. It's a resounding "No." I haven't bought them, I won't buy them. They get no money from me, no success, no financial support.

So what's your answer, assuming you even have the testicular fortitude to actually give a genuine and honest answer?

Maybe, yeah.

I just get kind of pissed off at this idea that things will magically sort themselves out just by not buying anything. Because it doesn't work like that; people like you and I alone not buying these games doesn't even BEGIN to outweigh hordes of Normalfags and Ironic Weebs throwing their money at them and it doesn't matter whose money it is in the end. People like RetardEra are taken seriously and get games censored or pozzed because they're loud enough and somehow worm their ways into company branches, and it just…when showing concern about this is met with "Dude just learn a whole language" and then suddenly the Japanese are censoring themselves because of those tactics and the next response is "Backlog bro". It grinds my fucking gears.

I don't want to just burn everything to the ground like some edgy anarchist. I want good games for both past, present, and future rather than digging in a hole of past glories with the naïve view that eventually the system will collapse on itself without me lifting a finger. Even the cancers recognize you have to be the change you want to see in the world.

And for the record, no, I haven't bought any. Not since being burned by Awakening's casualness and hearing about the garbage that was Fates, which only led me further down the rabbit hole and learning about other butchered translations in other games.

Which of these two stubborn cunts are truly at fault? My last buyfag purchase was DS2 with DLC and that is probably the last time I am going to buy vidya again. Whereas the taste plebs will buy anything just because they have some extra cash and get a dopamine hit from it. The base consumerist mentality. Besides, it was obvious from the start that Japan was eventually going to cuck out to (((globalist interests))) eventually.



I've seen some decent fan translations (Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together SNES with an IPS slapped on it was as direct as possible from JAP to ENG), but ones that are obvious and hyped up are going to have civcuck aids injected into them.

The idea that the industry will collapse or be forced to change due to a lack of sales from not buying games and encouraging others to do the same is far more realistic than "I just want all of the good games ever to somehow appear without any financial incentive!"

I am the change I want to see in the world. I want to see these companies and their employees starving on the streets, therefore I give them nothing, encourage others to give them nothing, and insult and deride anyone who does.

Ciro's translation isn't a translation. He literally made all that shit up. FireLizard's is fairly close, but even that takes some liberties. "Roputo's dark sword" being translated as "Blade of Darkness", and shit like that.

Even when it comes to fan translation anyone who is honestly interested in doing the original work justice is competing with faggots who pump out garbage at light speed. Most of the people who need these translations don't care as long as what they get resembles coherent English. All you have to keep you going is personal pride and standards, so a lot of people who do care about what they're translating run out of motivation really fast.

Random crit bullshittery is a staple of the series, and the game also unfortunately has reinforcements that act as soon as they spawn.

This bullshit is seen as early as level 4, in which you have to deal with infinite spawning reinforcements, that have random spawns, and a number of them have javelins to add insult to injury. It almost put me off from playing more, but the subsequent levels have been good so far.

If you really want to avoid bullshit, you can always use save states, unless you have severe autism and are out to prove something.
