Ahaha so you really did make the thread instead of me.

Either way, I STILL have to get the 1.10 patch >_>

Well, I think I just might be playing Soku again.
And yay, I finally get to read the card descriptions. And the victory comments.

Although now I can't have my parents walk by randomly every now and then, look at the character selection screen and go, "Oh, you know those characters? That name means this and this, etc."
I know the wiki has the explanations for character names, but having my parents tell me about it makes it so much more cool and real.

Gah. The translator mangled some of the cooler spellcard names. Not that I'm ungrateful for the patch, but...

'Nine Character Pierce', really? (vs 'Nine Syllable Stabs')  'Kick of Showering Brilliance'? (vs. Descending Flower Slam) Agggghhhh.

(They did this with Massacre on Mount Ooe, too- it used to be 'Mt. Ooe Endeavour "Massacre Everyone"'. Tell me that "Massacre Everyone" is a boring spellcard name. Seriously.)

Splendid~

I also beat Suwako's final spellcard without continuing in Sanae's story mode for the first time! This makes the patch even MORE awesome! ;)

To continue with Furienify★~'s description of stuff that makes this patch less than stellar, the text leading up to the titlescreen is unedited(the itself titlescreen being unedited is halfway forgivable; I'm not sure how they could have put that together), the headings on the staff roll are left untranslated(because who wants to know who was responsible for what task, right?), the edges of letters on the in-game dialogue are often cut off, and BGM name for Solar Sect of Mystic Wisdom runs off the screen.

Also, just another question for any of the people who worked on the patch: have you released the tools and documentation? If you haven't, do you plan to?
The SoEW patch has had its second release, come and get it!

I'm the hacker on this project, not the translator or editor, but I'm going to address this anyway.

The staff rolls were not edited on any of the gs.org patches, choosing instead to leave them as the originals. Similarly, that thing leading up to the titlescreen? It's "Shanghai Alice" and "Tasogare Frontier." Yup. The title itself is pretty artsy and it was felt that it was better to leave it as is. Nobody would have cared if the game had had an English subtitle like all the other TH games, but oh well.

The BGM thing is an oversight, you're right. Dunno how that got through testing. If there's ever another version we'll fix that.

And I don't have any plans to release my tools, no, and I have no particular plans to either. You may find that th123e.dat is in a common format, though.

Just as I was thinking of attempting this myself, the patch is completed out of nowhere! Kudos for the hard work.
