Re: Restructuring subforums suggestion

* As you can see, we're bumping up most of the subforums to "main" forums to boost their visibility and making more use of the software's category feature to keep a high-level grouping among them. Whoo, I'm excited for the subforums gaining visibility now. * "Everything Else Evangeli...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

A) I'm going to have to move things between the three files. Assuming this is OK, is there a max file size I need to stay under? Yes you can move things between the three files. Regarding the file size, Github's online editor only works for files < 1 MB. And because the files will eventually get En...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

@Kira - good luck! deeRez : I'll respond in greater detail later, but quick question... With files_evs_part1~3, is it okay if I move the text blocks around so that related stuff is closer together? One example would be putting the Leliel stuff side-by-side in pilot order rather than having it scatt...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

Nice loot, deeRez! You make me aspire to expand my NGE software library once the funds are available ... Thanks! In case you don't translate for a living, you should seriously consider making it some kind of side-gig. "Reichu's translation services." Ooh, often for Yahoo Auctions, I don't...

@SSD & @Zeruss & @jcmoorehead - Thanks you three! @jcmoorehead - I think we'll need a generic play-through where someone gets most of the endings the average person will get, and that'll be fine. The one-off crashes / bugs that remain we can tackle as they come up. Type of bug CAUSES to exp...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

This Saturday, I'll get to dumping a translator friendly version of the EVS files, probably will collapse all the lines and add a speaker line that's a comment. This is now done! The EVS have been properly added. The duplicate lines have been squashed into a single line and there's a # line that sh...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

@deeRez maybe a bitfield to indicate the speakers? Codewise, for each speaker y, do x += 1 << y. A bitfield printed as hex is very succinct (maybe too succinct?). 2,4,8 == Shinji, Asuka, Rei 10,20,40,80 == Misato, Gendo, Fuyu, Ritsuko 100,200,400,800 == Maya, Hyuga, Aoba, Kaji 1000,2000,4000,8000 =...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Nice, Baz ! Does this also mean the N that appears in Νミサイル is actually a nu that's rendered as N^2? Just double checked this, and yes! It's N² in-game - good catch! @deeRez , what does this mean for the translation? Will we be rendering the superscript 2 a different way? For now, call it N2. We ca...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Very cool to hear that the speakers can be identified. Nice find! I did a quick check, and Shift-JIS lacks a char for "superscript 2" in either the Windows-31J or basic JISX-0208 flavors. So they might have made a substitution in the font, in which case Sigma will become S^2 (as a single ...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Great work Reichu, especially correlating the list of names to the one in the executable file! Miscellaneous observation: superscript 2s aren't being rendered correctly (as in N^2 or S^2), with varied results. (S^2 being turned into a capital Greek sigma, for instance.) I've checked footage of the g...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

deeRez: Yep, that's cut scene dialogue for sure! (The game's version of the Gendo/Seele scene near the beginning of EoE.) Cool! So the EVS file format seems to be a list of commands and some of those commands have parameters. Normally, if scripts aren't stored as text, they're converted to numbers,...

@deeRez: I'll write a more thorough response later, but just one point: the cut scene dialogue still appears to be missing. Any word on the status of cracking that? Oh my gah, there's more text it turns out in the .evs file format: $ cat ./event/tev1901.har_EXTRACT/tev1901.evs | iconv -f SHIFT-JIS ...

Restructuring subforums suggestion

On more than one occasion, someone has mentioned how they didn't spot a thread because they rarely check a certain subforum. And I think it's because the way subforums are presented, they come across as pinned posts to a quick glance, and it's hard to tell when there's been an update without focusin...

I'm now 30 years old. I never imagined myself being this old, and still can't. The worst part is that my biological prime is behind me, my body will now steadily lose its functionality over the course of many decades. And it's already happening. Over the past year and a half, I've lost my ability t...

Re: game of evangelion geofront in unreal engine

Neat! I'm not familiar with Unreal Engine's exports, but you should try to get it to run in browser! One thing I've wanted to do is to create collaborative online 3D world builder, using JavaScript and WebGL. Something like Minecraft, but with more granular control. Maybe SketchUp3D style editing - ...

Yeah, I only did it so they'd line up with Asuka's name, but I forgot hers had a line break in it.

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

I know it's much too early to even think about beta testing, but I decided to take a look at how things were looking ingame. The results? Better than I expected, but some menu options seem to have arbitrary limits. For instance, "Discard Equipment" displayed as "Discard Equipme"...
