To Those Offering Support, and Wondering About my Translation Projects

Thank you! I appreciate that people stop by with kind words, encouragement, and curiosity about my translation projects. I figured I'd put something up to address recent comments since this will probably be up for a while.

I'm feeling that "real life" type of pressure to grow up, have a real job, and do something with my life. Honestly, fan translation is the best thing I've done in my life, and I'm proud of it, and plan to continue doing it.

For the past couple of years, in my spare time, I've been focusing on studying Japanese and actually getting better. I passed N3 last November, and I plan to shoot for N2 next year. I did some professional video game translation too, that was cool.

To an extent I feel like my life can be measured out by the translation projects I've worked on. How many years has that been? How many could I do before I die? I love the projects I've done, but I don't want them to be all I've done. I can't neglect my life and my own growth.

So I haven't been working on projects for a little while. Will I? Yeah. Do I? Sure. I pick away a scripts here and there. Dynamic Designs has two large RPGs I translated (one partial) that they are working on editing and play-testing for release. I've managed to finish first drafts of scripts for Team Innocent, and Ojousama Sousamou. Until those finished projects get out there, I feel like I've done enough for now.

Recently, I hear Eien ni Hen did editing on the script for Team Innocent, so a big thanks to her for that. I'd love to see some of these PC-FX translations get somewhere. While I can't say when, and I won't say soon, I will say I'm not leaving this world without getting a few more PC-FX translation patches out there for others to enjoy. Hopefully at least a couple more of my dream projects like Gunnm Martian Memory as well.

To those wanting to help, all I can say is thanks. Right now it's more a matter of me mustering the will and being focused, as well as having technical support. Esperknight has been a great friend and asset, and I suspect we'll continue working together as time goes by.

If you are really passionate about these projects, get out there and work on them yourselves. That's what I did, and that's what I do. Get the skills, find people to work with, make it happen. Barring that, all I can ask is that you be patient and wish me the best. When I want it badly enough again, trust me, stuff will happen.

Sega Saturn Action Replay, Download Failed - No Connection Fix

I just fired up my Sega Saturn to play an Japanese import game and I found an odd error. "Download failed - no connection" flashed on the Action Replay screen repeatedly.

Turns out simply cleaning the contacts on the Action Replay cartridge solved the problem, but I thought I'd put this up in case it helps someone else out.

Dip a toothbrush in Isopropyl

Dip a toothbrush in Isopropyl Alcohol and scrub the connection pins on your controller really good. If this doesn't work, you might have to take the controller apart and clean all the button contacts with Isopropyl too.

New Hyper Dimension Neptunia Noire Figure

If anyone follows my Playongo channel on YouTube at all, you will know that I'm a huge, Hyper Dimension Neptunia fan. I finally broke down and ordered a character figure of Noire. ^_^; I'm planning to make a video about it so you can see the details. I hope you will be looking forward to it!

This figure is a pre-order, due out this month. Quantity is limited but you can probably still reserve one quickly if you're interested. Check here!

EDIT: It looks like the release date has been pushed back to March so there is still time to order!

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday Matt!
Too bad the Noire isn't going to arrive in time for it though... :(

We're hoping the price of a PS3 will finally come down to something within reach.
Fingers crossed.
:)

I followed Playongo channel

I followed Playongo channel on YouTube once upon a time, But what I am looking for is not there so I quit and I am looking for something better.
