I have been translating Dante 2 including the sample game and extra games made with it. Editor is roughly done, sample game is done except for the intro demo (finishing up on that). But also got interested in Cipher because of it. The disk for Cipher was added to the downloads on MRC.

I am looking for Ramon to ask if he has a story outline or other Dante 2 notes for this? Ramon, if you see this could you respond or send me an email? Or if someone knows how to contact him... I am interested in working on Cipher.

Dante 2 guide from Naramura can already be downloaded here (but might get an update): https://msxtranslations.com/dante2.php
Also 5 translated tutorial Future Disk articles are already up there so non-dutch people can more easily use it (other ones will also be done).

If you bump it, he will come!

Wasn't there an English translation of the Dante 2 tool by Elvis?
Yes there was

Yes there was an English translation, but it didn't translate the sample game. The tool part was translated but it it had some shortened translations. Besides, I hope that some more additions will be made to the program...

Hi Randam. I still have a printed (Dutch) manual from Futuredisk, with some of my own corrections and additions. The main story was roughly 50% finished and should be on a floppy somewhere, but I'm afraid I have no idea if I still have that or if the disk would still work.

Hi RamonMSX,

Great to hear from you! I would be interested in your corrections and additions if you are willing to share them. Then I can add them to my own corrections and additions to the future disk texts so more people are able to benefit from it.

Are you willing to have a look for the main story of the game? Of course in your own good time and such. I would really appreciate it. But if it can't be found or something that would be bad luck...

Hopefully the features of Dante 2 can also be expanded. So far the program some bugs were removed like when your AC or DC from character + weapon went over 255 you only had the remainder. This has been fixed. Also some other optimisations have been made and hopefully will be made...
