In the Spanish version of FFIX it is called "guillotina" (guillotine).
It might be compatible with its animation, but I don't know what made the translators go to that interpretation.

Sorry Artema, in the Spanish translation, it was translated as "Devastación".

"Devastación"  ???
;D

@mugenginga
If you have time, it would be nice if you can make a HighRes version of the stamina bar of the Chocobo minigame.
I have already converted the tex files to bmp from the minigame: Chocobo_Race.7z

Oh wow, that uh... I think that might be outside my range of abilities actually. I'm not even sure which files I should be adapting here. 0_o I don't really have any knowledge of raw game files.  I might be able to do something if you know what specific files here I should be looking at, though! How high res were you thinking?

Feel free to drop me a PM instead as I think this might be a bit off topic!

I think it goes along with the menu overhaul. Besides I haven't PM you for certain reasons:
- I want to sensible others, that there is still much work to do (and actually it is easy one).
- I hope that one of the others will give it a try, too. We shouldn't always relay on one person. Two or three can realize something much faster.

You don't need to fiddle around with the game files - download Chocobo_Race.7z, it contains the bmp's, which you can use for the layout. I guess cb.bmp and cc.bmp are the files in question.
If you want to test the result for yourself in game, save your work as png and name them cb_00.png and cc_00.png*  and place them in the Chocobo subfolder of your mod folder.



*The '_00' represents the pallet. The original game .tex-files can have additional information like a different color shading. Aali has found a real clever way to mimic this.

I meant the files in question, sorry for not being clear.

I think ThunderPeel can probably do something much nicer for you if they're interested, but I'll see if I can give it a shot!

I'm pretty swamped at the moment :( What size were you thinking? x2? x4? I could give it a shot, if I have the time. Don't let me stop you, mugenginga!

X4 would be good I guess. It's done when it's done. It's your free time after all.

Ok, then something topic related.
I have a problem with Tifa's age in the scene when her mother is dead. According to the story she is 8 years old, but the model is the same, which is used at the well. So is this a misstranslation or have the developer made a mistake there?

The model is definitely a younger Tifa at the well and the bridge.  Is it not?

Tifa has only one model as children. For the story it would make more sense that she is really at the age of 8 when her mother die. But if she really is 8 and not 12, then I have to make a younger version of her without breasts.

Yeah...  I guess time constraints meant they didn't add another model.  Tifa prob did have breasts at 8 though...  :-o  :-D

Only fat girls have at this age breasts.
Anyway I will make a new model for her which fit better her age then.

Actually it IS technically possible for a skinny and/or fit eight year old girl to have breasts. A lot of articles seem to be linking it to chemicals in the air and the like (not sure of the validity on the chemical front, I didn't do solid research on that angle of it). Even if you wanted to say 'early puberty' is only because of chemicals there kind of IS a Reactor near Niblheim? That being said, it does seem to be pretty rare, just wanted to point out its not impossible.

LOL Kaldarasha, that was mean...but funny.

It's common to see them around 10 or 11, but 8 is pretty rare for even an early puberty case.

I believe what they did was retexture her then resized her.

Hey Kaldarasha, I wanted to let you know I don't think I'm gonna get those graphics done. I've got a ton of deadlines looming and am feeling less than productive lately besides!

Dec 25 ain't happening.  Covarr still has half of his files to do, there is an update or two needed from Luksy with ts, and I have had to update all my programs, files, readmes... you name it.  It's an ongoing problem and task but one way or another, completely finished or not, I will be releasing this on 01.Jan.2014.  After that updates will come weekly or fortnightly until it is up to speed.

Translation project status:  Proof check only (currently 50%)
Menu Overhaul: completed apart from minor updates needed from FeliX
Playstation buttons: Done, but need ts update.
Other:  ts updates needed
Installer: mostly done.
Custom programs: done.
Submarine battle:  50%.

I've been diverted by custom programs and Roses and Wine these last few days.  But in the coming days there will be another huge push to complete the outstanding tasks.  I'm sorry this is taking so long, but it really is a nightmare.  :)

DLPB quick question I noticed that for the most part any script changes I make before applying this mod stay intact.  However there are few exceptions to this rule.  Sephiroth and Cloud go back to as they where before switching their field models.  Another exception is the bosses seem to go back to as they were as well.  Is there anyway to make the two compatible without remaking it with the reunion?

So people know, that 50% was an estimate I gave DLPB before. Turns out it was way off. We're at about 70% for the proofing now. Even if we can't release on Christmas, I will still be aiming for that for my own part.

Derp, we're at 70, not 50.

Field models shouldn't be touched when using Reunion, if you select not to touch them.

Thank you so much for your effort, guys!

It'll be great for once to have a mod that puts up a "2014" release date without it necessairly meaning "31 Dec. 2014" as I'd usually expect.  ;)
