12 comments by xPearse on Mar 13th, 2014

I recently burnt out while modding video games and am just tired of doing it, it became boring and very taxing on myself after years. I always came to walls most of the time I tried to do anything and I just gave up after trying to get the music working for HOTD warband, I did everything right and still it didn't work so I didn't even bother releasing it. I did though for the M&B version but not for warband because I didn't even have the game installed and sorry to say but at that stage I didn't give two shits.

I don't think I will ever mod again and I don't plan to, I just wanted to make this clear but for those interested I have moved onto something more constructive. I needed to occupy my time with something so I started researching how to translate Japanese video games into English. After getting help for more than I week I started to make progress and fully understand the process of the trade, I am a fan of Magic Knight Rayearth and want to play the games but sadly most of them weren't released outside of Japan so I am taking it upon myself to translate every single one of them. It is myself and Niiri on moddb who is translating the game, I asked him for help since I can't read Japanese, he does a rough translation into English which I 100% of the time rewrite but he is still crucial in the process.

I haven't gotten the response I wanted to on Romhacking but in due time I hope more people take notice and get interested. This is what I am moving onto from modding and I actually enjoy translating this game unlike what happened to myself at modding. I first wanted to translate Magic Knight Rayearth 2nd: The Missing Colors as I thought it was a game based on the second season of the anime but sadly it has it's own story separate from anything else so no Nova...... grrr. Anyhow so far I have roughly translated around 50-60% of the game so progress is going really well, I made a release of the first third of the game nearly a week ago so if your interested please check it out on my blog. I am also interested in what you guys think as just because I won't be modding doesn't mean I won't be hanging around Moddb so what do you think.
Here is also a video that I recorded not long ago showing off the English translation, all the mistakes in it have already been corrected so all is good.

That's the game itself, they are always built in a straight line.

I wouldn't have a clue on how to, also I don't know about creating more missions at the moment as I am going to start a new mod for M&B sooner or later.

It under assault squad so obviously it's for that, can't you even read what's in front of you. That was a really stupid question to ask.
