Skill translation

#1GooseDXPosted 4/5/2010 5:03:51 PM
Well my skill translation got rejected for lack of content. So I'll post it here as I'm sure someone will find it useful. As far as I can tell all characters have access to the same skill set. they are unlocked from the third menu option (Acupressure research chart) after selecting a mission and equipped in the first menu option (ability set)

As Japanese can't be posted on this forum, you need to refer to the second table at this link to see the the skills corresponding characters. If all you can see is boxes, then you will need a Japanese language pack for you computer.

This is also the order they appear in the equip menu from top to bottom left to right.

I have not intention of writing a more in-depth FAQ for this game, so if someone would like to use this information in their own FAQ feel free to use it.

All of these work and I have tested all of them. Good job on translation.

All characters that I have seen have thirty slots and and there are only thirty skills, so I assume so.
The only real difference seems to be in the skill's unlock locations on the Acupressure research chart.

Good job on these, you gave me a bit more faith in my translation, lol. I was going to post a similar list, but seeing as yours got rejected I don't think I'll bother either.

Just a little note, the term 'secret hole' is quite a literal translation on babelfish's part if you used that. It's katakana for 'hikou' aka pressure point. Just use the term 'pressure point'. The lightning aura means an enemy has had his pressure points struck and are in a vulnerable state.

Grr, damn misclick... Was also going to say, 'fighting spirit' literally is 'touki', but i suppose it can be left as that. Just had to clarify the 'secret hole' bit as that really doesn't sound right if you think about it.... kekeke.

Thanks for the input. I used JWPce 1.50, it's a great little Japanese word processor/ dictionary. Hikou didn't come up in the dictionary some I just translated the kanji literally. This was more than just a machine translation, but not by much. Though I didn't know about that website till half way through and had to look up most the kanji by hand.

To be honest I'm not too familiar with the world of Hokuto no ken outside of the 2D fighter and the 1980's movie.

Ok, here's my little contribution to all. Many thanks to GooseDX as his list has also corrected a couple of my own translations. Rather than poast a list here on the forum directly I've simply uploaded an RTF file for download. It's easier than cross referencing.

Download here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/wf3zh9

I've attempted to give some of the names a 'proper' english name. Of course there is no LITERAL translation for these as you can see from GooseDX's list, it sounds pretty stupid. So I've picked a close equivalent that makes sense. If you don't like it or disagree, well, tough.

Full credits to GooseDX for posting the original list. I have used his english literal translated names as a basis for writing my list as I originally didn't bother to do that.

Not going to bother to submit this in a FAQ as it will probably get rejected for lack of content like GooseDX has already experienced. If anyone writing a proper FAQ wants to use this in their work, please credit GooseDX and myself. That is all I (we) ask.

If you cannot read the kana, you need a japanese font. The font I used was MS P Gothic (with the 'gothic' in katakana).
