Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 11th, 2016 | EarthBound, Hacking

TragicManner recently sent me this:

CRefice and his team have made a very impressive translation of EarthBound.

Team Members:
CRefice (Translation, Hacking, Grafics)
Frarese (Translation)
Francy3100 (Translation, Beta testing)
Leomeme2401 (Beta testing)

CRefice has accomplished quite a bit of really cool stuff with this translation patch. He was the first to start using EB++ to facilitate a translation effort, he worked very closely with PKHack allstars like The_Kirby, MrTenda, H.S, and ShadowOne333 to make sure he had the latest and greatest fixes in his translation!

So if you want an example of a very technically impressive translation that overcomes a lot of the problems we’ve had with translations in the past, this is the one. The system behind printing articles, in particular, is very cool.

And here are some screenshots of the translation in action:

Earthbound_-_Italian_00004 Earthbound_-_Italian_00013
Earthbound_-_Italian001 Earthbound_-_Italian004
Earthbound_-_Italian006 Earthbound_-_Italian008

You can get the latest patch here.

For clarification, a separate translation was released last year, but I’m not sure how the two projects differ. In any case, congratulations to everyone involved for pulling off a long, labor-intensive feat!

10 Comments to Another Italian EarthBound Fan Translation Released!


CRefice said on Feb. 11, 2016

Thanks for featuring my traslation on EBCentral!
I also wanted to clarify how my traslation differs from Vecna’s one: basically, aside from the hacks, mine is more based on Mother 2 than EarthBound, and for that, I have to thank, once again, Tomato for his Legends of Localization site!

My Italian is rusty, but let’s see if I can read these:

– MUNICIPALITY
– I think I will take a few days off. Paid, of course.
– YOU WIN!
– Oh… the youth of today… What times… where will it all end…
– A Loaf of Bread? Who will carry?
– The Sheepbot undergoes 227 HP of damage!

How did I do?

CRefice said on Feb. 11, 2016

Pretty good! Except Municipio means Town Hall. So 5/6, not bad!

Chi la dovra’ portare -> Who will carry it (‘la’) 😎

Mato-san, is the system behind printing articles different/cooler in this Italian version compared to your English version?

Mato said on Feb. 14, 2016

I’m not sure, I wasn’t responsible for the articles system in English EarthBound, and I’m not really knowledgeable about the Italian translation’s implementation.

Mattiac said on Feb. 14, 2016

I see. Thank you for your reply, Mato-san! ^_^

Another one?
I played the Translation by Vecna the last year and now I want to try out this version too…but there is a problem.
CRefice! I’m not an user on the starmen forum…How I can report to you bugs/mistranslations?

CRefice said on Feb. 16, 2016

@Scotty: You can email me at CRefice@gmail.com
@Mattiac: I assume you’re talking about his Mother 3 translation. That one allows every enemy to have their own articles. Mine only has some articles that get reused every time. It’s much less customizable, but more optimized! 🙂

Mattiac said on Feb. 17, 2016

CRefice, yes, I was talking about Mato-san’s Mother 3 translation. It sounds nicer if every monster get their own article. Although I haven’t played the game yet…
