Glad you made it back rainbow

About changes?? Since you still only have the one Nocturne post in our WordPress database, I have to assume you're just asking about general changes... So what I recommend is after you're done with a new translation, just use the Nocturne post you have (I think you should be able to still see it) and compare it to your new post, just using common sense to get an idea of how the translation posts should be (what the title and url slug should be etc.)

If you do everything right, for now at least, your translation should show up on the website automatically (without my intervention)

^That is technically a security hole, but we trust our Contributors (for now at least tongue)


PS: Of course do everything you can to make the translated page look like the original (except for the words obviously) ...and if you still can't make it work, then let me know (also once you feel like you've done all you can, change your posts status to Pending Review... and hopefully I'll notice it sweatdrop)

Well first things first... I'm definitely not the boss rainbow

Everyone is encouraged to take the reigns in terms of leadership around here... and frankly I'm probably the least qualified person for that charge smokin

I just make the place work, like a machine more or less. If people look to me for leadership or whatever, nothing will ever transpire...


For this article, I will fix the graphic (quit using the external one that doesn't load half the time -- for me at least) and get the Italian job up asap sweatdrop

Hope you don't mind... I changed the title and generally picked everything apart a bit rainbow

The graphic seems to disappear every other time I load the page... so don't let me forget to copy it over to the website asap ok doh

^Well, we don't have an EP page yet, though we do have a spreadsheet for it. Thing is we don't have a P2 section on the website yet, so probably an EP database would be hard to find, though I'm planning on adding a "Special Features" page, so people can go straight to the databases.

Emilio entered everything into these spreadsheets more or less single handedly. I translated the deity names into academic English. Emilio seems to have stopped short with translating everything though. Especially since Revelations doesn't even resemble a Megaten game terminology wise, it seems imperative to translate everything. If you can do the translating work, I'll pitch in and finish the tarot card graphics myself... just to get this all over with. I of course programmed everything... which was a lot of work, being our first database (and the first time the content of the site ever truly lived up to it's name tongue)

Anyway, we have a number of helpful links near the top of the Megami Ibunroku (Persona 1) spreadsheet. Everything you need to know is probably in one of those links. I'll go ahead and invite you to work on the spreadsheets, and I'll try to make sure you're working with them correctly once you get started. But like I said, probably you don't need to edit the Persona spreadsheet now. We really need work on the Stock Terms spreadsheet before we can move the Persona database out of the "Under Construction" section. Let me send you that email...


PS: Thanks for your continued support~

Gonna need you to make a WordPress post for this one smokin

PS: Sorry if I seem absent lately... been spending all my free internet banter time over at http://swordofmoonlight.com/ doh
261  Post Apocalyptic Hellscape / The Underground / Re: Need help with your Demonary? on: May 10, 2009, 12:54:58 AM
The two major things we need are Japanese/translated names for stuff (mostly magic) entered into our Google Spreadsheet. And after Atlus USA does it's thing with PSP edition, we'll need the new names it will be using (don't expect them to stick with the Revelations names do you!!)

Then we need to have the tarot card graphics named to match the background graphics so I can add that to the presentation. Then I can finish up the rest of the programming. If we want to go beyond just Persona info, then there is a lot that could be done.


The Google Spreadsheets are here (http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=piKSlpkg0llAny-VoXNRkKQ&hl=en)

Pick Persona on the bottom to get to the Persona sheet. It might seem a bit much at first, but it's really the easiest way to do this more or less. However we're really finished with the Persona sheet. What we really need is work in the Stock Terms sheet. Which is basic translation stuff that would apply to most every game. Then after that is finished it can just be copied over into the Persona sheet. There are Persona exclusive terms however. For now though it's probably easiest to just put everything into the stock terms sheet. Later when we have more than one game DB we can copy and prune it to make a general terms sheet(s).

Really I should reprogram the database so the terminology is a separate table. But for now this is easier. The main reason we have the terms in a separate spreadsheet is because Google won't let you sort a subset a rows, so this way you can just enter the terms willy nilly, then sort the row you want, then copy it into another sheet sorted. They don't have to be sorted, but it makes double entries less likely (once we get the bulk stuff in there)

Translation: If you just fill out the stock terms sheet I can do the rest. If you want to help rename the tarot cards, I can think of some way to facilitate that.

PS: To sort, just click the little boxes in the divider over the column you want to sort. Oh and I'll invite you to work on the spreadsheet by email if you still wanna try and help...

PPS: Also, I really don't care how the Japanese names are transliterated into English. But since I did what is there myself, I did it the way I thought was best. Whoever finishes the job can do it however the hell they like.

We seem to be missing boxart for SMT:DDS2 (Atlus USA)

Maybe it was never there, but if it was, I lost it in the shuffle.

Btw, if you have boxart for any game packages we've missed, please size it to match the others in this thread, and feel free to attache it to a post (we'll get it up where it belongs)

PS: Most of the images on the old news posts are fixed now as well.
263  MEGAMI TENSEI™ Uncensored / Velvet Room / Re: Remake of Persona 1 for PSP on: April 29, 2009, 11:58:00 PM
So is the sound being reworked? Or is this just a fan job??

I kinda remember this one being catchier, but it's been a while redface
264  MEGAMI TENSEI™ Uncensored / Velvet Room / Re: Persona 4 Manga on: April 26, 2009, 11:13:35 AM
I don't think the P3 manga is related, so probably wouldn't hurt to read them in any order.

As for the whole Javascript setup, I still need to let the reader know the page is loading somehow, and preload nearby pages so it doesn't take as long to skim thru. Though that already happens if you read it in the high resolution mode, which is probably what most first time readers (as opposed to peepers) would end up doing. Javascript is such a pain to work with. Flash might make more sense, but it requires plugins and I refuse to learn Flash I think. The evolution of internet technology is pretty messed up. There probably needs to be a completely new kind of webpage that supercedes html and all related technologies (that definitely isn't pure Flash websites -- that's by far worse... the scourge of the internet as far as I'm concerned)
265  MEGAMI TENSEI™ Uncensored / Velvet Room / Re: Persona 4 Manga on: April 25, 2009, 10:33:33 PM
I spent a good chunk of my afternoon working on the thumbnails... mostly making them popup and go away when I wanted them to. It was pretty humiliating, but at least I learned a lot about Javascripts onmouseover and onmouseout event... or basically how retarded/limited the specification is when nested elements are involved sick
 
PS: For my next trick I'll make the thumbnail slideshow center itself on the page number the mouse is over (just as soon as I'm able to regather my spirits)

PPS: Fuck it! Done (and so am I goodnight)
266  MEGAMI TENSEI™ Uncensored / Velvet Room / Re: Persona 4 Manga on: April 24, 2009, 06:14:16 PM
I developed some code that generates the preview and thumbnail images automatically. The results seem really good. I will get around to using the thumbnails eventually, but for now the pages should load up much faster. I also manually resized the cover pages for the first page where you can pick your starting volume.

Code:
<?php
 
if(!$manga_pages//make previews/thumbs
 
{
  
exec('ls '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path,$manga_images);

  
exec('mkdir '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'previews'); 
  
exec('mkdir '.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'thumbs'); 
  
  
$gd_warning 0;

  foreach(
$manga_images as $image
  {    
    
$file $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.$image;

    list(
$w,$h) = getimagesize($file); //todo: should do something if width is 0??

    
$src$ext substr($image,-3);  

    switch(
$ext)
    {
    case 
'gif'$src imagecreatefromgif($file); break;
    case 
'jpg': case 'jpeg'$src imagecreatefromjpeg($file); break;
    case 
'png'$src imagecreatefrompng($file); break;
    }

    
$pw $w>$h?900:450$ph $pw/$w*$h$tw 150.0/$h*$w;

    
$preview imagecreatetruecolor($pw,$ph); imageantialias($preview,true);
    
$thumb imagecreatetruecolor($tw,150);   imageantialias($thumb,true);

    
imagecopyresampled($preview,$src,0,0,0,0,$pw,$ph,$w,$h);
    
imagecopyresampled($thumb,$src,0,0,0,0,$tw,150,$w,$h);

    
$previewfile $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'previews/'.$image;
    
$thumbfile $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].$manga_path.'thumbs/'.$image;

    switch(
$ext)
    {
    case 
'gif'imagegif($thumb,$thumbfile); imagegif($preview,$previewfile); break;
    case 
'jpg': case 'jpeg'imagejpeg($thumb,$thumbfile); imagejpeg($preview,$previewfile); break;
    case 
'png'imagepng($thumb,$thumbfile); imagepng($preview,$previewfile); break;
    }

    
imagedestroy($preview); imagedestroy($thumb);  imagedestroy($src);

    
$gd_warning 1;
  }
 }
?>


This is a start... but there is still a lot to be done in terms of user convenience here sweatdrop

I don't know that a bum-rush is in order, but just thought I'd share that I've asked Masakado to let the site preserve his DDS novel translations:

If we still don't know anything definite about the P3 scanlations, and someone has the files... due to the past involvement of Tony with the Starry Heaven group from what I can tell, I will go ahead and put them up until someone asks that they be taken down smokin

Btw, I haven't really thought about it, but if any of our English Editors want to submit a revised edit of Emilio's English translation, I doubt he'll mind rainbow
