Gai Flame/Guyframe - translation patch, beta version
« on: September 18, 2017, 06:27:45 AM »
Hello,
so, we've had this project on the shelf for ages, and it's not fully finished, but I thought it would be a good idea to have it additionally tested beforehand. Most of the game is done away. The only major issue we know of are the menus. Of course, if you manage to notice any errors, inconsistencies etc. please report them, at best in this thread.

The game itself is a turn-based strategy, somewhat akin to other games of this type, such as X-Serd or, especially, its predecessor Gaia no Monshou. It's a part of the Langrisser saga, though this one in particular isn't nearly as long, nor epic in scope. To win, you need to go from city to city with your protagonist, investigate them and find the NPC that advances the plot, all the while doing battles. If you find some good blogs resources on this game, feel free to link them here too.

Without further ado, here's the patch: https://ufile.io/2csgn. This game seems to work best on Mednafen or BizHawk. We haven't yet checked how it works on the hardware, so feel free to do that if you want.  :)

Yarr, thanks for the hard work.  Translations are always good, though I'm too dumb and impatient to figure out such games.

This one is actually a bit cryptic if you don't know that you absolutely need to follow a pretty specific order of places to visit to complete the game successfully (you're told in the game where to go, thankfully). Well, either way, not that many HuCard strategy games left.  8)

This is fantastic! I was just going through some of my cheapy cheap hueys the other day and thought, Doesn't this game have a translation? I must have esp.

Thanks for the hard work!

hmmm the slow server seems to be down right now. Will try again later.

I believe someone else was working on it, but the project was either dropped or severely stalled for some reason. So, we figured that we'd do it, as a companion project to X-Serd.
Either way, we chose this one as a quick side project, actually - it turned out that it had a fairly short script, and wasn't that much pain to hack. It's just that we got sidetracked with numerous big PC-98 projects in the meantime.   :-k

See, this simple piece of advice (concerning the game's linear nature) will help me tremendously when I play through it.

:)

As always, a huge *hug* and *thank you* to everyone involved in the effort to translate the Langrisser legacy on PCE.

 Now, do you think a game like Spiral Wave has any chance of getting some love? Spiral Wave is, arguably, the spiritual sci-fi successor to the Langrisser series, after all. (Actually, nobody would make such a ridiculous claim). 

Seriously, though: thank you.

:)

Funny that you mentioned this game, because we did consider it at one point, half a year ago or so... what put us off was the hair-pulling difficulty level, and the fact that the first two cutscenes had almost as much text as the entirety of Gai Flame.  ](*,) At the time, we had some other big projects going too, so we put this one on the back-burner. We may go back to it at some point, but definitely not anytime soon, as we already have enough on our plate.  :)

Had a quick game although I was trying to figure out the controls.  Seems to run fine on real hardware.  Thanks for the translated work.

Did a quick game play and capture.
