I have a question: is it possible to get this retranslation to work on the PlayStation 4 version of the game? I think I already know the answer, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Thanks!
I've got bad news and good news. The bad news is it would require a hacked PS4. I don't know the current state of PS4 hacking and modding, but I suspect there's no way to get a PS4 to actually launch a modded game like that.

The good news? The PS4 version of FF7 is basically the Steam version in a wrapper, much like the Android and iOS versions are. Data formats are exactly the same. As mods go, injecting the retranslation should be relatively straightforward.

Someone more informed than me on the state of PS4 modding as a whole could probably give a more useful answer. But as of right now I'm pretty sure the answer is "not yet, but probably in the future".

DLPB,

about the last piece of retranslation: I am no native English speaker so feel free to tell me I am completely off but this line:

"Rude
“Nah,she’s in to Zeng.”

sounded to me way better using the original translation's "into".

Thanks for the updates!

I'm actually not sure and it's already on the list for Covarr to look at.  But into would appear to me to be incorrect - at least it feels like it -  but just doing a quick google check shows "into" as more used. 

It's a tough one.

It wasn't the original one though - it was our old translation.

Sorry, I meant the original re-translation! ;)

I can't speak with any linguistic expertise, but "she's in to Zeng" looks weird to me because I could imagine inserting a comma between "in" and "to": "she's in, to Zeng" (which would mean something very different). I think "into" as a single word has a distinct meaning. Using "into" would also match definition 2c here.

Yup - looks like the original way I had it is correct. 

But still - this does look wrong.  I mean - being IN to the music.  Into looks like they literally moved inside the music. But I guess it is what it is.

"Into" in this case is slang, and means "attracted to". One word is correct.

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but what is going to change between RO5 and RO6? I'm debating whether or not I should start playing Reunion now or wait until RO6 releases.

A big proof check of the translation is underway for RO6, and in addition a lot of bugs in the game have been fixed. The interpretation of some scenes has changed considerably (see the example above), though overall I suspect that the changes compared to RO5 will be fairly minor for someone just casually replaying after many years (because of the law of diminishing returns).

The changes from R05 to 6 are definitely worth it.  An awful lot of fixes to translation and otherwise have been made.

I decided to go ahead and download R05, and I noticed a small error in the Guard Scorpion fight. When it used its Scorpion Tail attack, the character would take damage before the attack animation would finish. This bug might be related to either 60fps Battles or Model Overhaul.

Registered just to say (and I think I say this on behalf of many people who don’t have Qhimm accounts) that I massively appreciate the enormous amount of time you must have spent developing this mod.  I didn’t play FF7 as a kid, so when I went to play it recently I found the writing too hard to take seriously.  When I discovered your Beacause translation I gave it a go, and found myself finally enjoying the game because I wasn’t constantly having my immersion broken by the original script.  And with all the extra fixes outside of the script I’d say this is the definitive way to play FF7, even more so when R06/R07 is released.  So thank you for allowing me to enjoy this fantastic game to its fullest.

It's 60fps and known issue.  See The Reunion Database.

I really advise you wait for R06... but it's a mega update and so has been in the making quite some time.  I am REALLY hoping it's done this year.

Yeah, I may put my current playthrough on hold until R06 releases. I've only gotten to the Specimen boss in the Shinra Building. I can upgrade from RO5 to RO6 easily right?

It's c ompletely different install for R06 - but even easier to install.

Hey guys, I'm really looking forward to downloading this mod pack, but the only download link I've found is the one is the OP, and it's a torrent file, I tried downloading it but I'm finding 0 seeds or peers.

Could someone upload this to megaupload or something more reliable? I really want to try this out.

Luksy is looking in to the issues with the compiler and Aali's code. Meantime, work on translation continues.

Speaking with Charlie Beer/Shikun about the Gongaga dialogue that he flagged up, and we've finally come to a consensus on how the scene is meant to be played out.  It doesn't make much sense to have Leno talking about some person we never see.  It's far more likely that he means Zeng and Aerith.
...

They're just idly gossiping about their team's romantic interests, to pass the time. Perhaps the last line would be better written as:

Code: [Select]
"Really!?
Poor Yrena, I think Zeng is more interested in that Ancient girl."

Not that it's important in the context of the story and it may even confuse the more observant players. While Zeng has remained committed to watching over Aerith, he doesn't really seem to care for her outside of his duty. He has no hesitation in slapping her about and later offers Yrena a date when they're at the temple. Maybe Leno is just confusing Zeng's loyalty to the role of watching over Aerith for actual romantic feelings...

Nah - he specifically mentions that Zeng is in to into Aerith.  That's a fact.
