Feedback on Trial Patch Release

Hello everyone. This is turbos86, I’m the editor for this translation project. Hope you are all enjoying our release so far.

As a new group in the Visual Novel translation scene, we are always looking for ways to better improve our work and learn from our mistakes. It is our goal to bring you all an enjoyable experience.  We have so far received only a couple of comments on the quality of the translation, but have taken notes nevertheless.

Before we move on to translating the full game, we would like to hear from you. Tell us what you think of the trial release. Do you like our style of writing? Did you encounter any errors while playing? Feel free to comment below with your thoughts.

On behalf of the team, thank you for giving our patch a try!

Summer Pockets Trial Translation Released

After two months of hard work we are finally ready to release the Summer Pockets Trial English Translation. To install the patch you will need the original trial which you can download from the Summer Pockets website here:  http://key.visualarts.gr.jp/summer/download.html

There are some unfixable bugs with the table tennis mini game script. We hope these aren’t a bother. This started as a personal project and still is so don’t expect the best quality.  When you open the installer you will want to select your Summer Pockets Trial Directory. The installer will overwrite the original files and replace them with the translated ones. Here is the link to the download page: http://www.alkatranslations.com/downloads/

I haven’t posted an update in a while, so I thought it’s about time to post one. We got an editor to work on the script (Turbos86). We are currently putting the finishing touches on the translation (making op look better, editing the script). We hope we can get this out at the end of the month. No promises!

We are gonna be pushing back the date a bit. We found someone who is willing to look at the script. We hope that this isn’t a big issue for people who want to play Summer Pockets. We don’t know exactly how long we will be pushing it back but hopefully not too long.

Translation is 100% complete!!! Now time for some long qc and tlc.  There are a few things that won’t be translated such as the advanced video settings and some of the system messages. Translating this requires using a fixed amount of space that is too small for English characters. Hopefully, this isn’t a big deal.

We are almost all done with translation. The table tennis mini-game image files have been translated. The map is also done. But we are still gonna need a few more days for the quality check. That’s why we are pushing the date back to the 30th. We would rather push back the date a few days and release a polished translation than rush to release it. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We are still aiming for the 26th to release this but there might be a pushback (probably only a day). All the system messages and config images have been edited. The op has also been translated and will be attached to this post.

The only images left are the table tennis and map ones. There is only one map image to my knowledge. But there are about 20 – 30 table tennis files. There is a chance we could’ve missed an image or two but they probably aren’t a huge deal.  We would find them after release and push out a patch.

If you have been following the vndb.org page you may already know that we are releasing a patch for the trial version of Summer Pockets before we release the full patch. The release date should be on the 26th of August but it is subject to change.

Spellcheck for the first prologue script file has been completed. The second script file has been fully translated but not looked over yet.

I put some images up on the vndb page for Summer Pockets if you want to check them out.

I would also like to mention that we are translating the Ping Pong minigame, The settings, and The Records/Achievements. We are hoping to make this a 100% translated patch.

Like the last post, you can see our script progress below. It isn’t much as its only been a few days since the last post.
