Miho Nakayama's Tokimeki High School English Script Complete!

I just finished proofreading and spellchecking the script for the Nakahama Miho no Tokimeki High School English Translation Project. The game is an adventure game released for the Famicom Disk System. It represented a collaboration with then up-and-coming 17 year old "idol", Miho Nakayama, and included a phone service which - in 1987 - could be called via phone numbers discovered while playing the game that would let you listen to messages relating to the game from Miho.

Additionally, the "Disk Fax" service, available from local game stores would allow you to upload your completion information for registration to win prizes including an exclusive phone card and VHS tape.

The game is further distinguished by an incredible cast comprised of members of then Square Soft, and Nintendo, including Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy), and Yoshio Sakamoto (Metroid).

I began work on this game at the tail end of March, and have finished at the start of May, so this project took about 1 month. In that time I puzzled out the Japanese text encoding, inserted an English font, redid the title screen and name select screen, in addition to finding, dumping, and translating all game text.

Please see the RHDN Nakayama Miho's Tokimeki High School Translation Project thread for more information on the project. It's currently moved directly to an "orphaned" project as no one has stepped up to help insert the script, but I've made all resources available in a script package, licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License.
