    Apocalypse's blog is here, but he's definitely stopped all work on the SSRPG translation project. He's currently heavily involved in the arcade hacking community - I see him post all the time in those areas.

    What did Duece do with it?
    I thought he translated it and just needed somebody to hack it.

    You have to break an egg, if you are to know what is inside.

    maybe we could find someone willing to take over the project.

    step 1: buy translation from guy.
    step 2: pay someone to finish it.

    He quit and "claims" his work was lost.

    I looked into it and I am woefully under-skilled at doing it. I don't have the time to learn the skills needed.

    Arcade won't even pass out the work he has done.

    Apocalypse’s patch of the first scenario is here - it looks like people are encouraging him to pick it back up again. Maybe some more positive encouragement would help:

    I would love to see this translation happen, but there would be a better chance at getting a pair of deuces in a card game...

    I wish SNK would do it themselves and/or hire a good translator to do it then publish it. I’d buy a CD copy and I don’t even own a NeoGeo CD.

    As for a scene translation, yeah that would be great. But so many have announced over the years then disappeared. It’s easy to feel like it will never happen.
    *Diggerman* - cuz ya never knew a NeoGeo game could look THAT bad!

    Learn Japanese to play, then be able to play 1000s of other games.

    In the 60 hours you'll spend playing this game, one could learn quite a bit of the Japanese language. It could also open other doors in your life and would most certainly open your horizons to other things.

    Shit man.
    I can't talk on behalf of Cory but I let him down by disappearing.

    What happened was: he had split the work in 3 and we were to all translate our parts and merge. As you may know the translation process wasn't straight forward; there was a lot of rules to respect. We had to make sure the dialogue stayed in the restricted speech bubbles. It was a slow process.

    I got busy with life and kept pushing the project to another day till it turned into a few weeks. Then I felt bad for not having contacted dude or doing any work so I thought I'd get some work done and come back with something, but I didn't. So a few months had passed and I felt so embarrassed that I just ghosted the forum altogether.

    But this shit has been bothering me ever since. I've tried reaching out to Apocalypse over the years, but he wouldn't reply and to be honest I don't blame him.

    So that's why I came back here, I want to make shit right. When I first came back a few days ago I PM'd him but he never replied so I also tried reaching out to him through his email and on his blog.

    There was a lot of special symbols we needed to enter for punctuation and spaces so I am not even sure if the work I done before was viable or not. My intention was to get my part done but I NEED TO ASSURE that it fits into the rules he set.

    I've tried reaching out to Cory as well, but haven't herd from bro in a few years as well.

    I've reached out to Durandarte as well hoping we can help each other out.

    Let's get this ball rolling.

    PUBLIC APOLOGY

    Dear Apocalypse,

    I apologize for ghosting you in the middle of this endeavour, it was a real dick move on my part.

    I couldn't make the time to work on the project and I didn't really understand how to use the software editor and then I got embarrassed to come back empty handed. I got embarrassed to log back here as well.

    And then life happened but this shit has been eating me for a while now. I've felt bad about disappointing you and the forum.

    I don't know what happened between you and the other members in this but I know what I did;

    So again I sincerely apologize

    I would like to pick up where we left off, if that is ok with you ?

    I'll take the reigns if you give me the knowledge and we can finally get this done for everyone.


    Regards

    -Aria

    I think it’s really cool that you came back to rectify this and I really hope some progress happens on this project as a result. Maybe with the recent samurai shodown releases, there will be renewed interest in this project. I know I would definitely play through a translated version of the game.
