    if you are using VNR you can improve the translation quite a lot by fiddling with dictionary translation vs an online translation. Japanese does not have much verb complexity so as long as the nouns are being translated correctly you should be ok.

    Japanese leaves a lot of as an assumption and tends to put the most important parts of a sentence at the end. So I doubt that less complex verb rules makes the language easier to machine translate.

    Infinitron added the Widenyo avatars I made!

    I only had one sheet to work with but there are several other Alice characters on the two other sheets, including Kenshin and Barres, so if there's one you'd like let me know and I'll include it in a 2nd batch.

    It's only 5 of January, but learning that Jason is a very talented artist may already be the most surprising thing that happened this month.

    I am totally expecting someone FTFY changing month to a year

    It was so surprising that it couldn't be true after all

    So, supposedly we just found out from TADA (from Haniho) that Rance X was supposed to be the 11th Rance game. The 10th Rance game was supposed to be Rance Quest Magnum.

    Whelp, despite having a review on the front page Sengoku Rance did not get a spot on the Codex's current Game of the Year poll. I guess it's not enough of an RPG? Everyone be sure to check out the poll and prostrate yourselves before Disco Elysium.

    Its a Japanese porn game foremost. And ViN second. Not really something most people will play.

    For what it's worth, shit like DQ Builders 2 and the Super Robot/Gundam games that came out this year on PC were also on the list. Sure, more marketable and sellable than an eroge but those are fairly niche in their own right. I think it just has more to do with Sengoku coming out 2006 (as well as being playable in English long before the official MG localization).

    Fan translation was released years ago. Also it's really old game.

    True, although Rance 6 made it the year it was released (I know, first time it was translated)

    Like any other pop-list out there, it's trash.

    I've been trying to get Gregz to play Sengoku Rance for over a year now (and Kalin 5D). Trust me, pretty much everyone on this site that's going to play AliceSoft games already has.

    I thought I read that there's a new English translation that's about to be released, which will be superior to all previous versions, am I misinformed?

    In before mentioning the other character name (again), I'm just using their official engrish names in Rance 03...

    I'm just convinced that Ls and Rs will always be weird in Jap games since japs themselves have no idea how they work.
