Gougai! Gougai!

Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Re: English Translation of Utena game (Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari)

I've updated the first port with version 1.02 (mirrors updated too). 1.01 had several errors related with quotes because it was based on the version inmediately prior to 1.00 before I made the changes to correct these errors, so the .bat file was spamming a lot of warnings in the translation process in 1.01 (some of these are harmless, but other were very important).

1.02 is 1.01 with these errors corrected.
Please, update any links on any site with version 1.02.

Oh no, that was totally my fault. It completely slipped my mind that you'd adjusted that file. Sorry for the trouble, Endless and everyone! emot-gonk

Hey, no big deal, hon. You just let me know if you have problems and we'll do our best to fix them. I've been waiting for ten years for this to happen, and I'm not about to let technical difficulties get in anyone's way!

Just a question, does the translator de-regionize the ISOs?

The translator only change the relevant files in the iso, I have no idea how region protection works in the Saturn, although that is not neccesary for emulators, but I guess if you are asking is because you want to play it on a real Saturn? If so, I have no idea if this would work on a non-japanese Saturn.

I'm not sure how Saturn region-coding works, but even if it was an American game, a Saturn won't play burned CDs unless you install a modchip. With a modchip, it should play burned CDs of any region.

The alternative way to play burned/region-locked games without modding is to use the "swap trick," which seems a little fiddly (and potentially damaging to the Saturn).

Guides for both those approaches can be found online with little difficulty.

Is my beautiful princess of love and beauty Nanami not in this game?

I am currently pursuing Saionji like a dog after a bone. This will end well.

Do it, Yasha! Besides, it's weird that we never actually did a character route on the forum.

Oh, she's in there, just not romance-able. Her best moments come if you [invite Touga to dinner after your room is trashed.]


BTW, everyone - again, please let me know if you see translation errors or confusions. I just noticed that the protagonist refers to Utena as "she" in the "do you have a girlfriend" choice, where the POINT is that the protagonist is unclear on her gender. emot-redface I don't want to spam corrections, though, so I'd like to see if anything else comes out of the woodwork before revising again.

Re: English Translation of Utena game (Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari)

Fuck. I would totally romance beautiful Nanami

So like why are people always confusing Chigusa for a man? Like wtf man she is as girly looking as they come. And how does she get away with wearing  a shirt opened all the way down to her belly button with no bra on at a school? Even by Ohtori standards this is pushing my suspension of disbelief.

TYPOS: There is a typo when Nanami first appears and Juri is saving you from her, she says 'and good and fencing' instead of 'good at fencing'.
Also, when you're looking for soy sauce and call Touga for some, Anthy says 'Thank you for your trouble'. That sounded weird.
I'll post any typos I run into.

It's an old-fashioned formal idiom for "Thanks." Appropriate, though, for Anthy.

Thanks for pointing out the Nanami/Juri line, Yampuff! Keep 'em coming if you see them.

I guess people are looking at her height! ...and not her corset.

All non-standard school outfits must be personally approved by the headmaster. So no problem. emot-tongue

In fact, Akio is thinking of making that the standard high school girl's uniform. The whole game is really just a test-run for that. school-eng101

Thanks everyone for the translation.

Once the translation is more polished I think it should be submitted to the more general romhacking/fan-translation sites.

Hey guys, can someone pm me with the breakdown of whose translations were used on what days or whether they were mixed? Ayu wants to know.

Re: English Translation of Utena game (Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari)

Here, folks - a variety of embarrassing corrections fixed, many contributed by Aerialrave. This time, I actually checked to see whether there are any game-breaking mistakes before I uploaded it, like a responsible person! Hopefully this is the last update we'll need for some time.

TRANSLATION FILE 1.04
Chu...

Directions:
You can just add this to your translator folder, replace the old "utena_eng.ini" file, and run the translation program again to overwrite your old translated rom.

My understanding is that if you've saved in-game, you can then load up the game again and your progress will be retained. This does not apply to "save states," only in-game saves. (Endless, please correct me if I'm wrong!)

Re: English Translation of Utena game (Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari)

Yeah, normal game saves are totally fine to use between different version, and the new translation would apply inmediately (and they can also be exchanged with the japanese version without problems).

Emulator save states are potentially problematic, although in cases like these, the most likely scenario is that the new translation won't be applied until the game loads the next script file. But technically, the possibility of bigger problems such as errors loading files exists, although this would need certain coincidences to happen, like the new translation causing some file to need one more sector (or less) and displacing other files, and the game having previously cached the position of those displaced files, unlikely to happen but not impossible, it happened to me while I was doing some images.

EDIT: all the translator links in the OP post have been updated to new version.

FYI: When talking to Wakaba in class on the 23rd, when you're prompted to choose names, Saionji is misspelled as "Saijonji."
