get some patches out and leave it at that

I updated the date ni game page with a PARTIAL patch.  

Partial menu translation.  Patch can be found here.   source ind-dngj  destination should be saved in different folder as ind-dngj.nds


Please note I have dropped duel love as a project.  I hope this does not reflect badly as to my work ethic.  It has been more than a year since I have done anything.  Also realize that even putting money into getting it going has done nothing.   So…

blah what I’ve been doing since the 15th of april

I took a long look at zoids re-dumped all of its graphics – decided that a complete makeover wasn’t completely out of the question.

did some a tiny bit of  translation-ary stuff on zoids and on dungeon of windaria.   Windaria is also one of those games I would like to do a complete makeover of (graphic wise).   If you don’t know why my attitude has changed to doing complete graphic reworks than you obviously haven’t read my last post closely enough, or you just don’t understand it.

Life wise my regular job took me back into the realm of spore.  Yes mushrooms growing off of twice spoiled dairy products.  the dairy turned into cheese the cheese then liquified partially and that liquid was a base for mushrooms.  Its been two days and I still have a headache and a rash from where this liquid touched me.   If the health inspector had done their job properly the store would have been shut down and the entire dairy fridge closed until it was determined that the spore had been removed.   I am actually quite ashamed I didn’t catch it myself earlier.  From this point on I will not take the words of my coworkers as to if they have gone through the spoiled or damaged products.  (A skid of dairy crates filled with – nastiness left in the corner slowly growing…).

At least now I know why I kept getting a headache every time I went in to work and why it would disappear after five minutes of not being in that fridge.   I have shortlisted crates that need to get out.  I personally tossed 7 crates full of spore.   I kept cleaning the floor of this room thinking a rat had died somewhere that I just couldn’t find.   It then it turns out to be this.   Yeesh.

Okay back to the reason I started this blog.   Now to disappoint you I may need to drop Itadaki street ds for odd reasons.  As a few have pointed out there is a wii version out and the wii u may or may not be able to play it.  That isn’t one of the reasons.  the odd reasons I will keep to myself until canada’s new copyright officially has a launch date.   Even then – sigh…

My other projects should still be on.

off to facebook/flickr to show off some of my latest artwork/pictures…

canada’s new copyright what it may mean for me

Well… that was an interesting read.

I would welcome you all to consider me an artist and anything I produce my artistic works.   I would also welcome you to my up and coming shows to demonstrate such work.  I also hope you look forward to some changes I may have to make in respect to respecting canada’s copyright.   (I’ve got a crapload of graphic work to “do” over).  I will now have to make a few suggestions to people in projects I have been part of.   That whole extended to other countries part may save me or screw me over….  thankfully there is no date enforceable as of yet… but still.

So, I’ll give you an example.  Previously I was given notice that I was infringing.  that infringement actually didn’t mean that much in terms of canada as said infringement needs further litigation and demonstration of…  Now though legally my service providers only have to give notice, whether I take it down or not is my sole responsibility.  the terms thereof have changed.    Which also, yes I should take it down right away.   there is a slight out though.  whether it will work or not…  meh….

Does it sound like I am panicking?   well kinda yes.   Those of you in canada in similar circumstances or to those whose projects are based on anything originally produced in canada – I look forward to your (documented) public displays of your original works as well.

okay mapped out some more stuff in elminage 2 psp.  all I have to do is insert most of my translated stuff in… er, now.  So the psp version will match what I have done for the ds version.   I also took a look into elminage gothic.  which aside from the script I can get a good chunk form it translated as well.

I also have been working albeit slowly on okeari chibi robo.

so not much news but still it is an update.


Life wise, I crossed off 4 more things on my life to do list  in the last week.  Plum wine, kirin beer, and (2 different adult nature content block).

next week I get to look into making my own wine.   Pick up literature and look into motorbike drivers licence.

oh and pricing out door food cart stuff.

can you just see me driving my food cart behind my motorbike to my corner and making x food for the day?

time to strike some things off of my life’s to do list.

Hold a full-time job for more than 6 months (it took me 12 years but finally…)

yeah that means that every time in my life I have had a full-time job some form of trouble got in the way.  I either had to quit or was reduced to part-time was laid off or some other “thing”.   You are probably thinking how old are you? and you really haven’t held a full-time job past 6 months until now?  yep… not until now.

A decade of love.  No need to say more, as its actually more than that.  I honestly can’t believe I have lived long enough for this to be crossed off.

more some other time.

well I need to find a way to cut 80+ hex from one file for it to fit into the psp version (its a pack file and I cant find the pointers to said files in said pack file…. sigh)

Its the spells and the spells descriptions.  I have already squeezed as much as I can over the last day.  It used to be c80 hex that I needed to cut now that its only 80+ I am not too worried.  I just need to get to dumping and researching psp memory.  I hope I will have better luck with that.  If not I may have to really butcher this file (with short form madness….)…. or find a way to compress for the psp.   in mid csv file in mid container/pack file in mid iso file.   sigh….

part of the problem is that in linking the files into that container/pack file the header of the csv file is changed.  I can safely cut from one point and ad a header from the ds version of the same csv file.   then use that to edit.  the problem then is that after that the software I like to use adds “” around stuff that just doesn’t need it.  So I have to edit the csv file in a text editor instead.  the good news is that I have already inserted 8 or 9 translated csv files.  (until this one, which was much too big).   I may have to come back to it.

Today I got up at 5 will be getting to work at 7 won’t be done until 5.  hopefully I will be back by 6 ish.  got to go…

I am considering buying a more easily moved laptop and or tablet.  As I somehow managed not actually doing any work on any of my projects for the last 5 days.

I ended up working on Elminage instead of okeari after work today.  (that mind-numbing reformatting of text was not what I needed today – too tired).

Instead I zipped through 4 of the csv files that needed translation.

right now I am fighting the urge to sleep like I have been for the last 6 hours.
