A little note for the Persona and Mother/Earthbound series fans on my list! (As well as a note to myself to keep for future reference, if I get around to downloading some emulators on this machine, heh.)

First off: Persona 2: Innocent Sin translation blog

And no, despite the title of the page, it's not just a simple translation/transcript blog - it's actually a translation patch for the game, which can be then played either on a PSX emulator, burned with the game's ISO to disc and played on PSX or PS2 (has to be hacked tho', naturally), or apparently played on a PSP emulator too! And it was just released about a week or two back! :D

The first entry on the blog should have a link to the newest version of the patch, and I suspect the other links on the blog apparently lead you on where to find the game's ISO (haven't check yet, sorry).

Secondly: Mother 3 translation blog

Latest patch version also apparently released about a week back. They don't tell you exactly where to look for the ROM you need to use this translation patch with, but I'll bet you more savvy folks can probably find out yourselves. :)

Enjoy! :D

I already know of them. I found them both on Youtube.

Haha, then I guess my tendency to always be the last one to know about these things strikes again! Oops? XD

(I found out today in the Journalfen thread that went on during LJ's outage earlier in the day, actually.)

Have you tried any of them out yet, btw, and if so, how well done are the projects?

I've already played Innocent Sin in the past when all that was available was the script. As for Mother 3, I have yet to try it out.

Oh, ok, then it's nothing new for ya. Ah well, maybe the info will be useful for someone else.

If you get around to playing Mother 3 before I do (assuming I ever get around to installing an emulator and searching for the ROM), lemme know how it is? :)

I've been playing away at Mother 3 for a while now! It's fun, but it's incredibly brutal. Even when I was starting out, and had a fairly good idea of what I was doing, I game-overed a lot. If it didn't have the Dragon Quest-type "You can keep your experience and treasure when you die" system, I would have been toast.

And now I'm going to jinx myself by observing that I haven't had any trouble with LJ all day... *knocks on wood*

Haha, it really does look like I'm late to the party, then! Ah well, at least the Innocent Sin part of the entry might be new to ya? XD

Are you playing an actual import copy, or the ROM on an emulator? If it's the latter, where did you get it? *curious* :D

I don't remember the exact site I found, but just plug "Mother 3 GBA ROM" into Google, and that should bring up something. You'll just have to do a bit of weeding to make sure you don't end up giving your computer syphilis.

The patch itself and a few possible emulators are easy to find on the Mother 3 project page, but you probably knew that already. The one I'm using is the vanilla version of Virtual Boy Advance (their VBA-M installed alright on my computer, but I couldn't get it to actually work.)

I also knew about Innocent Sin, but I've been hearing that the patch is still pretty buggy, especially for people who are using emulation. I could try soft-modding it on the PS1, but then I'd have to hook the thing up to the TV and hope that the arcane combination of rubber bands, paper clips, "boot" CDs, tears, and prayers makes it work. So, it's a "maybe after finishing Mother 3" thing for now.

...wow, you're really up-to-date on all these projects! Man, now I really feel silly for being last to know, haha! XD

Anyway, thanks for the info on your choice of emu and stuff! Whenever I get the itch to try dealing with emulators again, I might try Googling the ROM sometime. :)

Oh yeah, this is a stupid question, but since you seem to know a whole lot more about rampant piracy, yarr! download sites than I do, well: How do you personally check to avoid sites with malware/spyware on them? I know Google sometimes warns on their results page when one of their site hits is unsafe, but I suspect that's not wholly reliable, especially with newer sites cropping up all the time.

Anyway, do you use anything special for that? Because anything you could tell me that might help would be great.

Thanks in advance! :)

Wee! I'll have to play P2:IS one of these days... Sigh, it's hard enough keeping up with current games, much less keeping up with the past!
Oct. 29th, 2008 02:57 am (UTC)
Haha, yeah, I know what you mean - I've got a backlog like you wouldn't believe! :O

But then again, arcian did say up in the previous replies that she heard that the patch was still pretty buggy for the time being, so I guess you can wait for a better version to come out? (Not to mention wait until there's a lull in interesting new game releases... though given how the games industry has grown over the past couple of years, those periods of "downtime" are becoming increasingly rare. :\)

Anyway, glad the info at least made your day, hee! :D
