Would anyone want to work with me on a retranslation of SD Snatcher? I'm fluent in Japanese, and I want to see if we can give the game a full translation that fits better with the Mega CD version. I could handle all the translating duties if someone else wants to do the programming side. I know that Sonic_aka_T expressed an interest in something like this before... Another project I've worked on is the Policenauts translation at Policenauts.net

Very good!I think anyone that has the knowledge should assist osiris and people wanting to make the translation perfect.

This is a very good post and i am glad there are people out there that want to make a better translation of Sd-Snatcher
Cool

Sounds like a lot of fun, and I'd definitely be up for it! I can handle the reverse-engineering and adaptation of the game. We'll also need at least one person who would be willing to input/process all the text (a lot of work) plus we'll need someone who can make (or already has) a version of the game which has no bugs and will work fine on emulators.

Ghehe, I've played with this idea as well for some time, but never actually started doing anything because of lack of time. Anyway, it would be an interesting project, as the current Oasis translation is not very accurate. And of course a game like SD Snatcher does deserve such a translation.

That sounds great !!!!
As ro said, and about IC ??
I'm waiting for a Policenauts translation too !!! On Saturn, Playstation or 3DO ! But I think that if one day such a translation will be made, it will for the Playstation...

Well, first we'll need to find someone who would be willing to edit and input the text. Then I'll need to check if it's technically feasible (which I'm pretty sure it is), then I have to write a disk viewer, then Osiris has to translate the text, then I have to reverse-engineer and localize the game, then someone has to input all the text, then we have to test-play the game, and then you'll get to finish SD-Snatcher again!

I'm afraid the only area I'll be able to help with is the text translation. But I'm glad to see people are interested in something like this!

Do you have more information about that translation project? My email is marc AT junkerhq DOT net

Yes, Ruud did a remix of a song from Policenauts for that website. Smile The Policenauts English patch for the PlayStation version is still scheduled to come out some time later this year.

Toby, weren't you also involved in the whole oasis translation projects back then? (together with those 2 other dudes, uhm can't remember names)
So if you've done that job before, ye must have some resources already.

I'll be willing to help with text input, sure no problem. I'd be honored.
