The following is a list of games I came across by looking around Nicovideo, which are as of yet untranslated. If nobody else will translate them, I will, one-by-one, translate them myself. Do note that since I am regularly busy with other things, that progress will be slow, and I would definitely like some help on how to modify these games to make an English version (I only know about DreaMaker so far, which does not help with translating menu options).117 posts and 7 image replies omitted.

I tried using the lamp on the door and I got no such error 103. Therefore, I have no idea what it could be. Maybe if you show a screenshot of the error, I might have a clue.
I don't know what happened there, but you're definitely missing some files, so you should try re-downloading it and unrar-ing it again.
I'm at the last boss on Paranormal Syndrome and when I try pressing the S key it doesn't show up. I already tried downloading it again but nothing changed.
You should read the full tumblr post to see what button it is.
Nevermind, fixed it by changing computer's locale to japanese, although for forest of animals i still get the same problem as anon, even after switching the locale
Not sure what that could be for Forest of Animals since it runs fine on my computer… are you sure you downloaded and un-rared it after you set the locale to Japanese? Maybe downloading the Japanese RPG Maker XP RTP (found here: http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/rtp/xp_rtp.html
) might help.
yes redownloading it worked after switching thank you!!!
It seems one file is missing. Can't tell which one, though.
Try re-downloading it, changing your locale to japanese and only then un-raring it.By the way, I'm not the person who is translating this so if this doesn't work just wait for his/her answer.
I searched around and it actually seems to be an issue with the RTP, since you are missing some files from the RTP. You should try re-downloading the Japanese RPG Maker 2000 RTP, unzipping, and installing it again (everything after setting your locale to Japanese).
The best way to deal with these things is first to reinstall the rtp.
But if you're feeling adventurous, the file that's missing in all these cases is the set in between ”ファイル” And ”は開けません”
Which translates in the end to: File ______ can not be opened.
Thanks for the help, it's working now!
Ah hello. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but, it seems that Akemi-tan's endgame has a lot of content cut off. It doesn't display the full ending, and cuts to credits right after Shimoko and Ebiko find "that character" beaten dead in front of the shrine. I'm not sure if it's just my game or if there was a problem with the coding, sorry to bother.
You have to play a second time to see the full ending. After you finish the game the first time, press "new game" again.
Alright, the very first one I ever started working on is also now done:http://www.mediafire.com/download/8qvmg3g9w7cu78e/Boy%20Ichiro's%20Modesty.rar
I'll definitely want to Oni Asobi next… it was certainly one of the ones I found really excellent.
What is Oni Asobi about
Do you know of "Oni-hime-sama?"
Yeah, I know of it. It's an old legend told about in this town, right?
Yep yep. Once upon a time, when this place was still a village, to a certain farmer family, was born a girl with horns on her head. Because of those horns, that girl couldn't get along with anyone, and was always all alone. And then, on a certain year…… A bad illness assailed the people of the village, and caused a great number of people to suffer. The villagers blamed it on the girl, and ended up killing that girl as a mob. After that, incidents of children suddenly disappearing, a kind of "spiriting away," started to happen quite frequently. Surely, it was because the spirit of the lonely girl who was killed, abducts them out of a desire for friends. This kind of rumor started going around, starting from no one in particular……
There's a small shrine quite close to the school, right? That, you see…… actually seems to have been built in order to calm the spirit of that girl. But that girl, Oni-hime-sama's spirit has still
not gone to peace. Even now, from time to time, she attempts to take away people who go there……
↑Taken from the opening.
Probably Red World (赤の世界, Aka no Sekai), the follow-up game made by the same person.
I'm not sure what it is, but you can try making a new project and copying all the audio, data, etc. to the new project and see if it works then. Also, I'm pretty sure there was already a previous translation of this game into Spanish…?
eh? I think I was the first on translating it, however, I'll try, thanks for trying to help
Hello Tosiaki, will you translate this game? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGniCV8iF9Q
Yes, I've also taken note of the games takutaku has played.
A wiki has been started in order to easily allow people to comment on and offer suggestions for particular parts of the translation. The pages are still under construction right now, but any assistance in creating them is appreciated.http://tosiaki.wikia.com/wiki/Tosiaki_Wiki
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask in, but I'll try.
I'm having trouble finding the casket moving event in Forest of Drizzling Rain, I really can't even find when I'm supposed to do it or how to trigger it, I just know it "has something to do with the room with tons of books at the end" I keep getting any end except the ones that involve performing the event.
Investigate everything in that room some more.
Man, I don't know what's up with your translation Forest of Animals, but it's definitely just the file names- I managed to make it past the title screen with just AppLocale after creating a copy of タイトル２.jpg and renaming it タイトル2.jpg, in both Titles folders (i.e.- ../Graphics/Titles/ and ../Data/Graphics/Titles/).
After that, it won't crash when calling up the 'scary dream' image, but it will crash whenever the Squirrel Sage tries to show you either diagram file, or when the game tries to call up the Game Over screens.
So, uh, I'm not sure what the rhyme or reason behind the difficulties is anymore.
It seems to work for many other people, so I think that it may have something to do with the way you downloaded/un-rared the file. Are you sure you have it in Japanese locale before you even downloaded and un-rared the games…?
Tosiaki-san, I have a question about passing through the cat. I looked up your video and you can carry one mouse to lure the cat.
I do the same as you but I can't take the mouse
I also looked up your wiki, and read the translation. But in translated version, The mouse only say that he love danger, not mentioning anything about cat.
Need help and confirmation
You have to first approach the cat, within about 4-5 spaces away, before you can talk to the mouse to get the cat out of the way.
I'm certain that the extracting was done under the right locale.
I also never said the game didn't work when the Locale's set to Japan, I'm just saying I got the game to work for further screens with only AppLocale by simply switching a few of the files' names which made me suspect that they're the source of any troubles on that front.
It's really the only game that has any problems like these, so it's no big deal. I just thought it was interesting to note that switching the ２ for a 2 had any effect.
Well, they're different characters, so of course it'd get things mixed up. Though I wonder how it ended up being ２ in the first place. It was "2," not ２ in the original .rar. Maybe one downloaded from the dropbox source instead? That one hasn't been updated for some time. Though even then, it should have been a "2" instead of a "２", so that doesn't exactly explain anything either.
Probably a very good place to post about it. This thread will probably serve a more useful purpose for people other than the OP who wish to announce their translation projects.
This community is the best community. ;_;
I'm guessing this translation group is 100% dead by now, isn't it? The main page is gone along with their Tumblr, and the latest post I could find in another site dated back to June of last year.
What a shame, I was really looking forward to several of the projects they were planning to release eventually.
Untranslated? Learn jap and translate it yourself!
i don't understand anyone who would do this for free. its simply such a timesink, that, unless you really, really like the thing you're translating and want more people to see it, comes with little to no reward.
like shit, even the big cheese who do it for free give donation links and shit like that.
Because it's their hobby? I myself like to translate a game and play it after that, because it feels really great when you make a thorough localization to your native language, and are able to experience it all again, but this time with 100% intuitively understanding everything in it. tl;dr I do this solely for my own comfort, nothing more.
But yeah, I also don't understand how can people translate games they don't feel anything to, or didn't even play them before.
Uboa seems like has a lot of people that are translating games, and also a lot of rpgmaker fans, then why the board has a section for scanlations, but doesn't have a section for games translations? Wouldn't it be convenient both for rpgmaker players to look for updates there, and for translators to upload and promote their projects instead of dropping them into threads, where they most likely will stay forgotten for years?
(I'm a newfag, so maybe such a section/board exists, and I'm just isn't aware of it).
