That's true. While we all want to see the project finished as soon as possible, many of us aren't likely to just bitch about it; I think a good number of us will want to help in any way we can... but as we don't know the current status of the project and what's left to do, it's a bit hard.

I believe the point is that it's going to get done whether you can see a progress bar or not. But thanks to the power of spreadsheets I have concocted such a chart for you.

STaNLI brought up the topic of helping the project.I do not believe there is a `how can I help?' page or anything, but something like that could be constructive. I *would* help, but I doubt I *could* help: I could be wrong. I only have a very basic grasp on Japanese, and cannot read Kanji, so I could not translate. I do not know how, but perhaps I could help in more technical ways (I am useful with a PC). I could proof read, but surely many others here could too. I could beta test, but who here would not be willing to do that ;) `How we can help' is just as important as `can I help'.
My grandfather is fluent in Russian, English, Spanish, and (not so much as the formers) Sylvan.

About the precentage idea, that sounds like a good idea, but what about when life distracts him, and people notice that the percentage hasn't moved for a while?
If it was a team, then it would still be moving a little, but it would just stop if the one-man team took a break.

well i don't mind waiting for Haeleth's final patch release. sure enough it has taken a long time to come this far, but hey, there are always other games to play in the mean time.

but for those who want to give a helping hand, better off helping in other projects such as Air or Clannad.

Nice chart, Shii. ^_^

As far as progress goes... I can't be bothered to calculate it precisely down to the nearest character, but if we consider every scenario to be equal (which they certainly aren't), it would come out like this:


So you can see that it's not coming along that badly.

Score! progress update :D



Hrmm hows this for a conspiracy theory:

In a clandestine attempt to elicit a response from 'The Man', kouryuu makes a series of anonymous posts so rediculous that there's little chance anyone would take them seriously. Then, by folllowing them up with the polite suggestion for a status update, he emerges victorious!!

You need to dig deeper for a conspiracy. What if, in fact, I were kouryuu posting under a different name, agreeing with myself to further justify the request... now it begins to get scary ;)

What if, in fact, everyone involved in this thread was actually Haeleth, justifying the length of time his project is taking, and then hyping up a progress update (which he then releases)?!

On a more serious note... uh... question... is there going to be a release when everything is "generally OK"?

The only problem i see with the Haeleth conspiracy....how can he have so many personalities? Don't say multiple personality disorder...there's too many here!

....mind shot....need to play random game....

Let's get the point straight.

Haeleth is just one man.

He is doing this out of the kindness of his heart.

He has taken an assload of shit for trying to finish this.

He does not have a group of overworked, underpaid employees to help him.

He has the right to make us wait 1000 years to wait for this English patch.

Got that?


And as for conspiracy theories, those posts could have been............GP32!!! IN GUEST MODE!!!!!![/paranoia]

Can't you see? The other personalities are simply faked, like acting in a play. It's all an elaborate plot.

No way, if he dies first then he'll have failed to make the patch and then the poor soul who bought Kanon and expected it to get translated won't ever get that English version. That'd be kinda sad ^_-;

Pretty graphics! I like pretty graphics!

By the way... what's Kanon? I've seen the anime but... is there something else?

Which Haeleth is translating.

Yeah, there's no way that can be true...
No it's true...
Shut up.
