About repoduction business shit

Ok, I finally got from my real life to write this post since been thinking about it for quite a while already. First and foremost, NEITHER ME NOR ANY OF MY FRIENDS AND COLLABORATORS SUPPORT REPRODUCTION TRADE. I'm sick and tired to see the work we put so much effort into sold on etsy or other garbage bins. ALL OUR TRANSLATIONS ARE INTENDED TO BE FREE AND NEVER TO BE DISTRIBUTED FOR ANY PRICE.

NEITHER ME NOR ANY OF MY FRIENDS AND COLLABORATORS EVER ASK MONEY FOR OUR WORKS. And I mean all works, including hacking, translation, manual graphics and so on.

WE IN NO WAY ENCOURAGE PIRACY OF GAMING (OR OTHER) SOFTWARE. So, dear David Florida and other motherfuckers selling their repro shit with our (or someone else's) translations - please, get your lousy excuses 'bout "support to the scene" and "making this only for friends" or "we only sell one copy per person to cover our expenses", roll 'em up and stuff as deep into your arses as you can - I believe in you, morons, don't let me down. You trying to fuck just game devs here - you're trying to fuck the scene, and tbh - you're the biggest discouragent I ever had in my translation efforts. One thing is to get a glossy copy for you or your friend and another one - putting this all into fucking serial production.

For the time being,

1. I put all my current projects on hold (there're like 10 of them) and watch over this situation closer.
2. I'm seriously reconsidering any further work on disc-based games.
3. Most likely, no more manuals in English will follow from now on (yeah, bastards, try at least mastering the fucking photoshop and google translate instead of stealing everything).
4. I'm seriously reconsidering of putting the translations into the public web.
5. And, yeah, to those guys who actually buy from the above - cheers - your support is very important for them but don't come here crying and asking for a new work.

PS: The above should not be taken deeply by guys making collector's editions, spare boxes or other handmade gaming merchandize putting a lot of their heart into those - that's pure art, and I respect that, guys.

End of message for now.

Vandal Hearts for Sega Saturn arrives.

Heya. Just to mention that the translation patch for the Sega Saturn version of the one of the best TRPGs is released. I was only partly involved in this project mostly produced by my friends paul_met and Pennywise. The game has several changes from the PSX version, including additional spells and maps. See the readme for details and do buy the game - it's worth it.

You can grab the latest patch here.

Valhollian translation for Sega Saturn released :)

Well, yeah, this was an unexpected both project and release. An absolutely hardcore TRPG for Sega Saturn back from 1998. Save is your best friend. If you're braindead, that is. Enjoy and buy the original game!

Oh, yeah, the patch is here.

And the Manual is here.

PS: The game's picky with emu and prob only the latest mednafen is able to emulate it properly. As for original hardware - all smooth (Clone CD still does wonders).

PPS: Patch upgraded to v.1.2 version.
