MOTHER 1+2 translation

May 29th, 2011 | MOTHER 1+2 | 27 Comments

domflo just sent me his German translation patch for the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2. You can download it here. I don’t speak German, so I can’t say anything about the quality one way or the other, but it looks pretty good from what I can tell. UPDATE! It sounds like a new version of the patch has been released, so check the description of the above YouTube video for the latest ve...Read More »

Just wanted to mention that thanks to help from everyone who’s sent me reports (seriously, thanks!), I’ve fixed a handful of typos and formatting issues in the MOTHER 1+2 translation. I just put up the new version of the patch (v1.01) on the project site here. Hopefully that should take care of most (if not all) of those issues, but if you come across any other stuff or come across any...Read More »

The question’s come up a lot since I released my MOTHER 1+2 translation the other day, so I should try to explain why it would be a lot of work to fully translate the MOTHER 2 side of the game too. (more…) ...Read More »

If you’re playing the Mother 1+2 translation I just released and run into any bugs, post about them here, it’ll be easier for me to keep track of them all when I go to make an updated patch someday. The currently known-for-sure problems are: #buglist li { margin-bottom:20px; } Choosing the fastest text speed in battle will make it say it’s the second-fastest speed on the file-lo...Read More »

Today I finished my final text-polishing phase and test playthrough of my MOTHER 1 retranslation in MOTHER 1+2. Barring any unforeseen catastrophes, the patch should be out before the end of the month. I still gotta do a few last things, try it out on real hardware, write the readme, package everything up, etc. but it’s pretty much almost ready to go now. For those just joining, here are som...Read More »

Over the last few days I had a little bit of free time, so I used it to get a bunch of text checking/polishing done with my MOTHER 1 retranslation. Of course, it’s important to note that since this was a Famicom game originally, the original text wasn’t as snappy or interesting as the later two games. Still, I think the final patch will make the game a lot more enjoyable to players tha...Read More »

Last night the Starmen.Net/Fangamer guys kicked off a MOTHER 1 Fanfest (site here). A little bit before it started, Reid was like, “Hey, is your translation far along enough that we could play it for everyone watching?” So I sent him the current beta build of the translation patch. He and his cohorts played through from the start of the game all the way to saving Pippi, so if you want...Read More »

My retranslation of the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2 is nearing completion, and when I do release the patch I want the MOTHER 2 side to at least have basic menu translations. So after a bit of work I think I’ve gotten that taken care of. If you have time, it’d help a lot if people could play through the MOTHER 2 part of the game with this beta patch. Mostly I want to see if anything...Read More »

Over the last few days, I managed to pretty much finish off the rest of the to-do hacking for the MOTHER 1 portion of MOTHER 1+2. I might still need to fix some bugs and maybe add an intro screen, but I’m hopefully done with hacking the game. Now I just need to polish the text up, do lots of testing, and package everything up nice and neat, possibly with some extra goodies like we did when w...Read More »
