will old japanese mac games ever get enough attention to get fan-translation one day, in the same way console games?

      This gets said in every thread but I'll repeat it again since you dekinais never seem to get it:

      If you want to play Japan-exclusive games, just learn Japanese. In the time that it takes for even a single game to be translated you could become fluent in Japanese and play all of the untranslated games that you want. Especially if you're into obscure shit that will never be translated like old Mac titles.

      Nice comment, thanks anon. Do you know a good resource for PC98 games? The only archive collection I could find last night had very few games in it and I think they were all English patched.

          This is a pretty small collection and it's missing a lot of popular games like Yu-no

            Nah I'll never finish the games people have already translated, which are most of the good ones by now. Do it for free and I might consider applying your patch and dropping the game early from ADHD and adult commitments.

              But I'm more interested in the untranslated ones. If the only option is a translation patch then I'm not playing it.

            Maybe it's not for you but that mindset is retarded. Learning Japanese quite literally changed my entire life.

                Yeah, I live in Japan, am married to a Japanese person and work at a Japanese company so life would be pretty shitty right now if I didn't know the language.

    I actually watched the graduation OVA recently. It was pretty good and very nice looking. In a short time it made me actually rather like the girls quite a bit or at least made me want to see more of them. It's like it was catching the last couple episodes of a cgdct show and I'm a bit sad we didn't get a proper series.

    Oh and then there was this weird spinoff where they all became giant robot pilots. It was pretty entertaining. I'd watch that as a longer form series too. The OVA market was just really funny like that back then.

      The most ignorant and unhelpful users of technology modding or translating old software...right.

      Rich. It would be neat but I think a lot of hackers would be discouraged by how few people would bother. Christ people bawww about RetroArch and setting up standalones right so they still think hardware is better.

      Anon even links provided here have also Windows versions and the game you have posted is a port. I haven't heard of Japanese Apple II or Mac exclusives before. Most likely it wasn't that big of a thing. So while people might translate that stuff, it most likely won't be soon.
