Games You Shouldn’t Play, PT7

Holy shit it hasn’t been four months since the last update, what did I do with the real translator and who am I!? But seriously, I have a super awesome announcement for today: Matsuri’s route is done! That also means that we’re 67.4% done with the game as a whole. Again, I urge you to follow me on Twitter if you aren’t already, because I update there far more frequently. You get once a month here, you get once a week there. Anyway, before I begin the review, here’s an image of Kurukuru Fanatic. I know you guys are probably starved for those right now!

WE BLEW IT

Anyway, read on for the review.

Games You Shouldn’t Play, PT 6

Hey guys, it’s been a while. A number of months, actually. I’ve still been updating, but mostly on Twitter. We’re at 56.1% now, and now that I’m done playing this LONGASS game, I can start putting more effort into translation. I know it’s taken a long while for me to finish this game, but believe me when I say that there isn’t a day that went by that I didn’t think about it. RL stuff happened.

If you’re not already following me at https://twitter.com/DETranslations, please do so. I update much more frequently there.

Before we begin, shoutouts to the guy who donated to me the other day. I wasn’t expecting it at all, and it was a pleasant surprise. Thanks a ton.

But anyway, this review’s been a long while coming. I’ve been teasing it for a while, the “Cross Channel-like” that confused me. Now that I’ve played it, all the way through, and I do mean ALL the way through, I have some stuff to say. Actually I have a shitton to say. So if you want to read on, click Continue Reading-> and… continue reading. But before you do, remember: The review’s NSFW. I don’t intend on posting lewd stuff, but you’re not exactly going to get a promotion if your boss catches you reading it.

53.7%

The title should make it obvious where we are now in the Kurukuru Fanatic translation. Not much progress, I know, but it’s finals time so I have a lot of shit on my plate. Anyway, two things I wanted to say today.

First, I have a twitter now, so you can follow my translation updates the instant they happen! (And any other inane bullshit I feel like posting.)

https://twitter.com/DETranslations

I don’t use twitter that much, so follow it in whatever fashion you please.

Then to finish us off, a picture.

One of these things is not like the other.

Kurukuru Fanatic Partial Patch

Some people have been asking for a partial patch, and I haven’t released anything recently, soo…

Here’s a partial patch of Kurukuru Fanatic!

This should cover the entire common route and Wazuka’s route, but everything else will be in Japanese.

It took a lot of time and effort to make this so please don’t post this on other sites. Just redirect here! More technical information can be found below.

I’m stupid.

I would say right now that Kurukuru is at about 68%. But it’s not, because I just realized that the way I was calculating percentage was wrong. I was comparing the size of the translated folder with the size of the original folder and calculating my percentage off of that. Turns out that usually, text files with English words in them are larger than ones with Japanese characters in them. So my numbers have actually been inflated. After I compared the number of files in the translated folder to the number of files in the original folder, we’re only at about 51%. That’s not acceptable. I’ve been unintentionally lying to you guys.

So I’m going to fix that. I’m going to translate until I can say that I’m actually at 68%. It’ll take a while, yes, but that’ll give me time to replay the game I was going to review today.

When I’m finished, I’ll edit this post to reflect what I’ve done. For now though, know that I’m sorry and that I’m also stupid. Mostly the last one.

Sorry.

Games You Shouldn’t Play, PT4

Well, it’s been a bit more than a month again. That tends to happen to me. Time gets away from me? Y’ever notice that?

Kurukuru’s at 66.5% now. I should be doing more in the next few days though, so don’t count on that percentage.

Beyond that, the last batch of Special Editions have just been sent out. If you want one, don’t bother me. You had your chance. Bothering someone in the HUGE comments section of the last post might get you a copy though.

As for this edition of Games You Shouldn’t Play, I promised last time that I’d be analyzing a game similar to Cross Channel. I lied. It’s late and I want to tell you guys about some stuff before I head to bed (it’s late where I am)

So let’s get on with it!

Games You Shouldn’t Play, PT3

Phew, two posts in three days! We’re going for a translation speed record here, folks, and soon we’ll be overtaking the common garden snail! All those fancy translation groups better watch out, cuz I’m catching up and I’m gonna take those punks down! Yeah! DKT! DKT! DKT!

Alright, enough with the sarcasm. Kurukuru’s at about 65% now. It’s all good in the neighborhood.

Some of you have been asking to actually read the stupid thing I wrote/made. To be clear, it’s in a completely playable state right now. You can get from the beginning to the end, no problem. However, you should know that it was made for a very specific audience, and as such you won’t understand a lot of the jokes, many of the characters will be foreign to you, and the plot will hinge on things you don’t understand. If you still want to try the game out, comment with your email address and I’ll send you a link. I only ask that you don’t make it public. Trust, guys!

But anyway, if you’ve read the title, some of you are probably quite excited right now. Part three guys, part three! You’ve been waiting for it, and I’ve been waiting for it too. I needed to make sure that I knew exactly what I wanted to say, and now I know. So, let’s begin.

CANADIER

Alright, I owe you guys an explanation.

No, there’s no progress. It’s been nearly a month, and I feel really bad about it. I really do think about this everyday, so let me explain what’s been going on.

I mentioned a project last post, so I should explain that. When I was play-testing Yandere, I had to inflict it on one of my friends to make sure that the readability was okay. He probably knows just about as much as I do about that game. I’d been writing something myself, when suddenly I realized that I could make it up to my friend by combining that project with something else.

So, from that was born a strange beast.

I present to you: Yandere: Special Edition.

i told you

So yes, to answer your concerns, I did just spend a month writing horrible fanfiction. I hope you can excuse my blatant stupidity.

The OTHER reason I haven’t been doing much is that college has started back up again. Now though, I’m in Montreal, Canada for a semester abroad. It’s been interesting adjusting to a new culture, and I hope you guys can forgive me for my gross transgressions against going fast. However, after I get back into the swing of things I should have some progress for you. Hell, I might even try doing some more translating tonight.

In any case, thanks for being patient and please don’t hate me.

EDIT:

Okay, I worked on it a bit, and now we’re at 61%. Yeah, its not a lot, but that’s two documents and I stopped right before a sex scene so that’ll get us a lot more when I don’t have class tomorrow.

Merry Christmas

Or whatever denominational holiday you practice.

I have bad news and EXCELLENT news.

The bad news is, I have no progress on Kurukuru Fanatic. I’ve been working on a project in my free time, and that’s eaten up most of the time that I would use to translate. For that, I sincerely apologize. It’s going to be done at the end of next week or bust though, so after that you should start to see more progress happening.

The EXCELLENT news… well, take a look at this picture.

First: If you know what game this is from, you should be EXTREMELY excited. If you don’t, it shouldn’t be hard to guess from reading my blog. However, and this is SUPER important, DON’T tell people that I’m translating this game. Strictly speaking, I’m not yet. I do plan to translate this game though, after I’m done with the two that I promised to finish. If you do have to tell people about this, refer to it as “my secret project”. I understand that more popular translators have those, and this one is very important to me.

The reason for the secrecy is that the company that made the game in that screenshot is extremely notorious for C&Ds, and this project CANNOT get C&D’d. 

That being said, I’m very excited, and you should be too!

As for Kurukuru, as I said, there should be some progress soon.

60%

Yep, Kurukuru’s at 60% now.

Yeah I know that’s not exactly epic progress for a month. But it’s something, right?

Look, I won’t lie. Midterms have been kicking my ass, and that along with getting ready for the holidays means that I haven’t had much time to dedicate for this. However, I should have some time soon on winter vacation to get going on this, and maybe we can see 65 or 70%, hmm?

By the way, here’s a translation I did of Totono’s OP. As it turns out, translating by transcription is difficult for a non-native speaker. I still think I did alright though.
