Post Looking for Hacker for Little Busters! English Translation

We are looking for a hacker for our Little Busters! English Translation Project.

We are currently translating the dialog and editing the images. We need someone who'll be willing to work directly with us, preferably someone who can extract and insert everything (including minigames). Knowledge about the reallive system used in LB or other reallive games is preferable, because we have no idea.

If you are interested in taking on this responsibility and willing to stick out until the end, please contact me. I am checking out this forum daily, you can post on this thread or PM me.

PS1: If you dont think you're good enough, ask anyway ~ we are also amateurs at this.

PS2: I can also be reached from echo.materia@gmail.com just in case.

We solved the problems regarding the insertion of the translated material and managed to extract almost everything.

Little Busters! has on a rough count 74k lines and 3k images to translate and edit. While our translation is proceeding smoothly we welcome any additional translators that are willing to help to speed up the process.

We can be found at #lbtp@irc.synirc.net

Devil on the G String has a couple of images to translate and edit
And apart from the 18+ notice (which I did on a whim ages ago anyway) I'm not doing ANY of them. =p

That does sound like a very attractive idea. Probably do that for the opening video subtitling as well =P

Or I'll just leave them as they are, they don't really affect the playability of the game - they'd be more for just making it look better.

Depends what the images are I suppose. Subtitling the opening is definitely pointless, especially because it'd either be optional anyway (and few would be likely to download it) or buff the patch's filesize by like, 100mb.

If it is only a couple of images I'm sure someone would be willing to do them though. Bound to be someone out there who wants to contribute but can't translate.

Actually, I meant just timing etc. the opening. I'd implement the subtitling programmatically. It's nothing that arduous in kirikiri.

The LB minigames contain a lot of images so they do affect playability in this case. Most are simple item names etc and while you can play the game with out being able to read them (as minigames do not affect the plot) you'll spend alot of time randomly clicking though them having no idea whats going on.

In a pure VN, graphics aren't really that big a issue as a menu is pretty easy to figure out (save, load,hide window, return to title etc)

Keep up the great work!

You didn't translated GTA:SA textures (approx. 1000 images), i did... and there's really nothing special (especially when you can handle your picture editor well). ^_^

EchoMateria, Please keep up the good work! :)
