Greetings everyone, it’s been awhile and I hope you’ve been doing well.
You haven’t heard from us in some time, and that’s because we took some time off (and have been super busy) after KonoSuba! In the Life! However, we’re back in action once again. This time, working on the KonoSuba Season 2 BD game. This one is a bit trickier, which I’ll explain a bit further below.
While we do know that there’s a translation out for this release, there isn’t a full translation. Meaning that while the text is translated for the story it is also missing the names, quest and possibly a few other details as well. We’re looking to entirely translate the game so that it can be enjoyed completely in English.
Once again, yuNS and NinetyTwo will be involved in the project, with NinetyTwo spear-heading the translation with help from yuNS. We’ve already started working on the script and hope to have the story entirely completed before the end of September.
However, there’s an issue and perhaps that’s something you can help us out with.
The story text is in a separate .dat file, but the problem is this does not cover everything. Quests and names appear to need access in an entirely different area, and that requires us to get into the game itself. The problem is actually getting into the game. In order for those things to be modified, we need to get into it but getting into it isn’t as easy as it was with KonoSuba! In the Life! As a result, anyone who happens to be familiar with programming or hex editing who could either point us in a direction or would be willing to offer their services would be extremely appreciated. We plan on looking out ourselves as well, but the more the merrier! Sadly, there is no other way to get into this information without actually getting into the game itself. I had tried prior to taking a break, with finding no definitive way to get in there and going through a hex editor allowed me in but I will admit I was like a deer in headlights and had to bow out. We will absolutely need this in order to 100% translate the game.
In regards to KonoSuba! In the Life! I’d like to create an update covering anything that was missed during the initial release. There were a few things pointed out to us, and some that we noticed ourselves. I’d really like to get in and do a major update for that, however that will wait until we’re either done with Resurrection of Verdia, or until we hit a brick wall. Note as well, that this will most likely be the final update for KonoSuba! In the Life! unless a major update or change is required.
Stay tuned, as I plan on updating once again next week with screenshots of our progress on the main story!
