Getting insight on MT2 + update
Before I started working on this translation, I had already beaten the first game in KMT years ago. Cheating of course, but I was able to view most of the game. I used that experience to figure out the context in most of the script. But since I had never made it very far in Megami Tensei 2, I had no idea what was going on in the story. And it makes translating the script much harder.
Well, for the last week or so, I was playing through the Japanese NES version. Aside from the different graphics for characters, this game seemed to be very close to Atlus' remake. Only a few lines are different, and even then the meaning is still mostly the same.
Thanks to the folks on Romhacking.net's boards, the script for Megami Tensei 1 is basically complete. It'd be possible to insert it in and play through it completely now. Now I'll have to get off my duff and make those final fixes I've put off until now. :)
Here's a pic from one of the endings for MT2 on the NES. If you've played SMT1 or SMT2, it should look familiar. :)
