Princess Maker 4 Translation Patch

Yes, I really am this stubborn. Yes, this really is an in-game screenshot.

It's not done yet, and this is only for GUI, not for text. You'll still need Anime Game Text Hooker for that.

Basically, this replaces things like the skill names, the map location highlights, the controls on the options menu, etc - things that are done in game with images rather than actual text, and therefore not picked up by the hook. And it is hugely helpful to be able to see exactly which skills are going up and down during a class/job, and where you're going in the town. With the text hook and a guide and this patch, you should be able to follow the storyline and go after particular endings without feeling too frustrated.

At the moment we haven't had any luck cracking the *text* - and even if we did, we don't really have the time and resources to completely translate the scenarios. We'd like to crack the shop-item descriptions, because they're currently a little bit of a pain to deal with in the game - they didn't use specific graphics for each item so you can't easily look at a shop's contents and figure out what to buy.

In the meantime, if you're looking for English anime games like this, go here and check out Cute Knight.

Read the rest of the blog if you want the actual patch link, and no, it is NOT a complete translation. :) It just does the bits like you see, bits that text hookers could not reach.
