Name Fix Patch (Final Version's out, for real this time.)

(1/13) > >>

Chronosplit:
I believe I can confidently post this up there.  This project is functionally done, but updates may still happen.

This little patch fixes and updates Ability, Equipment, Job/Monster, Treasure, and Unexplored Land names in PS1 FFT.  The goal for this is that the original translation's vibe and original intents are preserved, while making something more recognizable with common FF naming conventions and fixing translation errors.  This means a lot of abilities aren't using the War of the Lions terminology, though some were updated as such.  Some terms have not been changed or have been lifted from other FF games where applicable, mostly the GBA and PS1 eras of FF (for a minor example of what I mean, instead of Hasteja it's Hastega), and I've even delved into literal translations of ability names.

As of now there are three patches, Altered exists mostly for the sake of Swordskill (Stasis Sword etc.) names.  There may be more differences to come as we move along.  No Suffixes uses spell names with the original 2/3/4 instead of -ra/-ga/-ja.  .ffttext files are also provided with all patches for those who might find them useful.

RHDN Link, has the preferred ISO information, quick Readme, etc.
Yet another alternate MEGA mirror.

Latest version does a huge amount this time. Big thanks to Raijinili and Timbo.


Job Ability Names:
Spin Fist>Spinning Fist
Repeating Fist>Pummeling Fist (Also fixed the quote not matching.)

Secret Fist>Death Touch (Secret Hole Fist may refer to punching the Death point in qigong internal healing also known as dim mak, or Death Touch as it’s referred to in the west.)
Stigma Magic>Purify
Sinkhole>Pitfall (According to FFVI this can also be Snare, but I don’t think they’re the same thing.  In fact, some FFVI text patches refer to that as Pitfall.)

Wind Blast>Gust (FFV)
Magma Surge>Lava Ball
Split Strike>Splitting Strike
Crush Strike>Polaris Strike

Spell Edge>Spellbinder
Sasuke Knife>Sasuke Edge
Iga Knife>Iga Edge
Koga Knife>Koga Edge
Platina Shield>Platinum Shield

Hotfix:

Provided no bugs happen, this is it except for updates to the .ffttext files with new tool releases.  I can't think of much else I can do that doesn't require a full retranslation.  Maybe Bags or updating Truth/Un-Truth if something better comes along.

Angel:
This is much closer to how I would have preferred WotL to handle any renaming. I could nitpick a few things, but not outright complain. Good on you!

Xifanie:
I like the effort put into this, and am fine/like most of the choices.
I will point out a few issues I've noticed, though:


--- Quote ---Thunder Bracelet>Bolt Breath
--- End quote ---
You renamed Bolt 1/2/3/4 to Thunder/ra/ga/ja but Translated back to Bolt for this ability? Seems really off.


--- Quote ---All-Ultima>Alpha
--- End quote ---
Definitely highly against this... It is obviously a powered up Ultima spell... the hell's an alpha? beta? gamma?


--- Quote ---Blastar Punch>Comet Strike
--- End quote ---
You also have to consider that nothing about the ability's animation looks like a comet... I would've preffered something more along the lines of "Starry Strike" or something.


--- Quote ---Deathspell 2>Dispelna
--- End quote ---
This is actually an Esuna type spell, not Dispel. It cures Stops + Blood Suck, which Esuna doesn't, but also doesn't cure Darkness or Berserk, which Esuna does.


--- Quote ---Two Swords>Double Sword (I know that Dual Weild is actually the term in most games, but this pairs better with Doublehand.)
--- End quote ---
It really shouldn't specify "Sword"... as you can have two punch, two swords, two flails and so on... doesn't matter if there is more consistency where there shouldn't be.

I don't know if your patch covers those or not, as you didn't really mention them:
Move in Water/Walk on Water are reversed in the original PSX translation, basically.
1F6 : Move in Water / Waterwalking
1F7 : Walk on Water / Swim
1F9 : Move undrwater / Waterbreathing

Also... Frog + Toadga? I know Frog + Toad 2 was wrong too, but might as well correct it properly.

Chronosplit:
Thanks a bunch for the compliments!

Good point.  This will be Thunder Breath next patch.


--- Quote ---Definitely highly against this... It is obviously a powered up Ultima spell... the hell's an alpha? beta? gamma?
--- End quote ---
In Tactics Advance, Alpha was known as the "father spell" to Ultima.  My train of thought was "Perfect>Father."  That really isn't right and I'll replace it.  Other than just Perfect Ultima, only other thing I can think of is Eschaton because that's the official thing.


--- Quote ---You also have to consider that nothing about the ability's animation looks like a comet... I would've preffered something more along the lines of "Starry Strike" or something.
--- End quote ---
You're right, the only similarities the animation has with a comet is that it's shiny and falls sorta downward.  I was thinking from the name "Starry Heaven Bomb>Falling Star>Comet."  Starry is an okay idea, but I feel like it's sticking out from the rest of Mighty Sword.  Stellar Strike maybe?


--- Quote ---This is actually an Esuna type spell, not Dispel. It cures Stops + Blood Suck, which Esuna doesn't, but also doesn't cure Darkness or Berserk, which Esuna does.
--- End quote ---
Hmm... that is correct.  Original text points to the second stage of Dispel, so this is kinda weird.


--- Quote ---It really shouldn't specify "Sword"... as you can have two punch, two swords, two flails and so on... doesn't matter if there is more consistency where there shouldn't be.
--- End quote ---
Noted, Double Wield is meh so I'll change it to Dual Wield next patch.

1F6 : Move in Water / Waterwalking
1F7 : Walk on Water / Swim
1F9 : Move undrwater / Waterbreathing
--- End quote ---
I had completely forgotten!  That's getting changed like the guns were next patch.


--- Quote ---Also... Frog + Toadga? I know Frog + Toad 2 was wrong too, but might as well correct it properly.

--- End quote ---
Will do.  Frogga sounds really wrong, so I'm going to change Frog to Toad.

Nyzer:
"Alpha Ultima," then? Not sure how good that'd be as a suggestion.
