SC2 in Japanese
« on: January 29, 2005, 10:32:57 pm »

What did I do when I emailed TFB? Only forget to ask about the Japanese 3DO version.

Now, since you guys have access to the 3DO media, can someone give me a clear answer to this question:

Was the Japanese 3DO version dubbed or subbed into Japanese?

And if it was dubbed, what was the quality? Normal voice acting, or manipulated by computer?

Having seen a copy in japan years ago, I have yet to find the truth to this. Can someone help?

Thanks

I'd like to know that myself. I also like to get my hands on a Japanese copy, for this "bug" report: http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=605

One person who would know this is Yuki. She had a TFB fansite, but it vanished half a year ago, and I haven't been able to contact her.

I did a bit of searching about the net for a copy of SC2j. Unfortunately I was only able to come up with one result myself. Thankfully Nic came through with an additional link. And eBay seems to only have one copy of SC2 (probably the American version) at this time. So, it looks as though someone (with the funds) could get a copy of SC2j. Too bad I couldn't find an ISO.

Thanks for the info.

Doesnt Chad Derrenbecker have a Japanese copy? I saw photos of it on his website. I wonder if he has played it.


I cant even guess at it, dubbing would be a phenomenal task, but subtitling is equally as massive. I am very surprised it was translated, and into japanese of all languages! (having studied it for 5 years, I know just how tough it would have been, a literal translation of the Orz would have made even less sense)


If it was dubbed, then I am very curious to hear the japanese voice acting.

I bought one; it just arrived.

The intro duk is dubbed. You're playing captain Isamu of the flagship Kamui.
All the speech is dubbed, the captain's lines are written in Japanese letters, as are the lander reports. Most other text is still in English.
The splash screen and the start menu are adapted, most other images are unmodified.

Some snapshots: 1 2 3 4 5
Some samples: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

That's great!
Does this mean we will be seeing some sort of japanese language expansion at some (distant) point in the future?

We might, if we have the permission of the copyright owner of these voices, fonts and modified images. (We hope that will turn out to be TFB.)

We would also need the help of some Japanese speaking person/people if we would want to subtitle everything, because everything would have to be transcribed and synchronised.

But it's all very low priority, as there seems to be no demand for a Japanese localisation so far.

those samples are great, but what aliens are speaking in each?

i know the first one is Fwiffo and the last one Talana, and the second last one must be Umgah. but how about the others...?

I have to know how the Ur-quan sound in japanese!

I've actually selected reasonably recognisable samples. I'll leave it to the readers to figure out which is which. It should even be possible to point out the exact lines.
(And no cheating by being Japanese)

First is Fwiffo.. His intro line. (damn sure)
Second is Yehat when you show them the Shofixti... (quite sure)
Third.. NO IDEA... Maybe Hayes?
Fourth... uuh.. Ilwrath?
Fifth probably Shofixti. Might be Umgah.
Sixth is Arilou (probably).
Seventh? No idea. Supox?
Eight.. Haw. Little Japanese child... AKA Zoq Fot Pik, the blue dude... "FRUNGY FRUNGY!".. Smiley
Ninth is Thraddash...
Tenth is Talana, yup... Evil Witch Talana, to be exact. Smiley

Nice stuff, Meep! Tongue

We might, if we have the permission of the copyright owner of these voices, fonts and modified images. (We hope that will turn out to be TFB.)
Considering the first screenshot you link to contains the text "©1994 Fred Ford & Paul Reiche III", I think you should, well, ask them.

We will, in due time. It's not likely we'll be working on this any time soon.

As for the answers so far:
1 is indeed the Spathi Intro line (spath000.ogg)
2 is NOT the Yehat
8 well... hard to get that one wrong. zoqfo270.ogg to be exact
9 is Umgah, but what line?
10 is indeed Talana

I'm not yet going to respond on the guesses. All samples contain some clues which should allow you to reply with a bit more certainty. Let me just say Novus's guesses are not all right, nor all wrong.
