Giygas and Pink Floyd?
About four years ago I posted about why I translated the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2 but not the MOTHER 2 side – basically, MOTHER 2 and EarthBound have a really messy text system that would’ve taken me forever to untangle.
Jeffman’s been plugging away at the problem for the past few years, though, and finally things are looking up!
If you recall, I did a basic menu translation for the MOTHER 2 half of MOTHER 1+2, which means the text looked and sounded like this:
But here’s how things are looking with Jeff’s new work:
As you can see, it’s starting to look just like EarthBound!
But Jeff needs help, though. Lots of help. He needs people to go through every line of the MOTHER 2 script, untangle things, and then replace the text with EarthBound’s text in EarthBound’s format. There’s a LOT of text, so that’s where fans come in.
Jeff’s made a nice little program to make things understandable. Here’s an example:
