I have contacted the creator of TOCV

Me and "KT" have been exchanging emails since yesterday. Communication is a little bit difficult since he uses a translation tool, but so far we've been able to understand each other and cooperate.

First of all, I've praised his work with the hack in name of the members of TOF. And then I've raised a few questions about translation and modding:

Please note: Due to the language barrier it's possible that I've misunderstood a few things, so I'm not 100% on what I'm going to post.


1- Regarding the translation of TODC (the tool also known as TOCV_Tool):

He wasn't the one who created it so it's not possible for him to edit/translate it. We could only do that if we contacted the creator and already had the meaning for all features.

2- Regarding applying the translated .ips to TOCV and using the item/class names Humble Novice provided us with:

Some good news - apparently he took an interest when I sent him the .ips and the translations and said it was possible to translate TOCV manually with those. He will see how it goes in the following week and report back to me afterwards. He also asked if my PC could display/input double-byte characters (it can) then asked me to make corrections/testing/spellcheck to his work.

TL;DR we may be on to something translation-wise (H)

Great news. The creator of TO:KT writes in Chinese too right? Maybe I can help in understanding his text. But certainly not if it is in Japanese. I have a dictionary lol

I don't think so. That website you've gotten the TO_KT thing from is just like us - people who found out about it somehow. The TO_KT Expand hack is made by the same guy/group, and is japanese as well.

Unless whoever posted on that chinese website was "KT" himself.

Sounds good, look forward to hearing some updates on this.
Zhang Fei (Yide)
張飛 (益德)

~In a challenge to Lü Bu, Zhang Fei said, “Stay, O twice bastard! I, Zhang Fei of Yan, await you!”

~While defending Liu Bei's retreat, Zhang Fei wards off Cao Cao's Force at Changban Bridge by shouting, "I am Zhang Fei of Yan! Have you a man who'll fight it out to the death?"

~Cao Cao, assessing Zhang Fei's challenge says this before pulling back his troops, "Once Lord Guan told me that Zhang Fei had taken the head of a chief general before the eyes of his own legions as easily as removing an object from a sack. Today we have crossed his path and must take care."

Awesome, hope it works out. This could prove to be a very interesting year for (English) Tactics Ogre Hacks... Good luck and thanks for the effort.

Aww yiss, I was exchanging emails with him just as you posted in here. We have 98% of the items down, along with most of the spells/skills. 99.9% of the classes are done as well. He says he`ll be working on the warren report/help text and will send me results in a couple days!

EDIT: Btw, tell your friends about these hacks! Your family! Parrot! We can always use the activity!

There are skills in TOCV (similar to Fudo, Relic, etc) which are exclusive to the hack and KT has given me freedom to come up with names for them (bound by an either-character limitation) without paying heed to their japanese names.

This is what I came up with:

Paladin - Disgrace
Dragoon - Fury
Terror Knight - Decay
Black Knight - Cleave
Hell Knight - Corrupt
Cataphract - Charge
Sword Master - Rend
Samurai Master - Expunge
Solid Blade - Wrath
Shadow - Execute
Beast Master - Scourge
Canopus - Puncture
Mildain - Despair
Guildus - Distort
Holy Knight - Stasis
Freya - Ruin
Battle Queen - Oblivion
Angel Knight - Justice
Rune Knight - Disdain
Diana - Disable
Sniper - Mutilate
Dragon Master - Mangle
Enigma Hunter - Condemn
Lizard King - Plague
Demon - Malice
Denim - Mayhem
Vice - Chaos
Haborym - Torment
Lans - Contempt

I'm still waiting for his reply (which might take a few hours, it should be dawning there soon), let's see if he's ok with those (he's been accepting my suggestions so far and being generally amazing, the guy deserves a medal :-) )

Clock you are awesome! Cant wait to see it! Great names for the skills too btw. :)

Also, When the hack does come out we should make a sticky or downloadable readme file that tells whats new and or different in the game. Also possibly a walkthrough? i dunno just throwin some ideas out there.

Yeah I plan to ask him to create a changelog for it. Maybe he already has one and I just don't understand enough japanese to even find the file.

In other news:

KT instructed me into getting BNE2 to work, so now I have a massive control over the contents of TOCV. Problem is, the thing is 99% japanese. I can pick out the class table and the item table, with some attributes I'm able to change. But that's like 5% of the available data.

However, if I wanted to, say, make terror knight L with warlock defense/growth or change the mini attack to 99, I could. :-D

one recommendation: someone should throw together pics and stuff when the translation's done and we'll all spam the patch (not the combination rom + patch, that's usually a moddable offense) on other forums. i call gamefaqs!

Of course. It will take a while to get it done however.
