    Re: Virgin's Protection Magic Translation (v 0.82 released 23/07/2017)

    Does the patch for the version 1.1.4 will be ready soon?

    Nice work anyway.

      The v1.1.4 content requires some additional tooling which isn't ready yet. Or at least, if I'm to translate it in any reasonable time, due to the fact that while I'm pretty good with Japanese at this stage, my vocabulary is still awful.

      You are of course, reminded, that the current v1.1.3 patch will work on v1.1.4; it just won't translate the new content.

      (Also, for anyone jumping in to the last page, I posted a progress update which is the last post of the previous page. Might be best to read that.)

        Oh right, my bad. I probably screwed up last time while applying the patch, then. It worked this time. Thanks!

I'm hopeful I'll be able to coerce my RX 480 into running the machine learning software I need for this, and then I'll be looking to do the final big model training on Google Cloud (which recently updated it's ToS to not outlaw pornographic content). One thing which I haven't addressed yet is finding a corpus of censored/uncensored image pairs; obviously E-hentai is where to get the pictures, but I'd need to do some work to pair up the images. However, having reviewed the literature available, I'm about 90% certain that an algorithm decensor is possible to achieve - although it will have to wait until Google allows me to purchase time on a GPU instance to get a good result (currently these aren't available in my region).
          An interesting project. One thing I always wonder about Japanese works designed for Japanese audiences is how many of them actually put detail into the genitalia, and how many just approximate it since they know it will be censored anyway.

            All things suggest that the actual detail put in varies, but it's normally not a lot. Quite a lot of times a vagina will just be a line, unless something's going into it.

            In any case, that's not actually too relevant for the algorithmic decensor I'm working on - if only because by the application of the mosaic, the actual detail is destroyed forever. My initial ideas using Waifu2x are a good starting point, but they often produce bland, warped decensors, precisely because they don't have sufficient detail - in both the original image and the mosaiced version. To do a good decensor, the algorithm must synthesize some new details. Hopefully not too much, because this kind of thing takes a long time to train, but some new details must be created.

            As an aside, if people want a gentle intro to this type of technique, Ars Technica has a good article on a Google Brain project that did this kind of enhancement technique. Obviously I wouldn't be seeking to do anything nearly so complex (they use a machine with 8 Nvidia Maxwell Titans attached to it for the training, which is a level of resource I doubt I'll ever have), but it's a nice intro to the general technique.

            Oh, and I fully expect this work to occasionally produce nightmare inducing failed decensors. If I get it off the ground, I'll make sure to post pictures.

              I don't know if this was discussed earlier in the thread, but found a way to gain more money easily. Though I'm incline to believe that it might be some event bugs that happened. If your character is still at the Virgin status and you have the Ring of Transferance (switching from pussy to anal sex), then they're able to keep repeating the Virgin Auction Event in the last area many times for a good amount of money while still protecting their Virgin status. I've exploited this bug many times over, but wondered if that's also part of the gameplay or not.

                Gameplay discussion should be in the gameplay thread. Although... That sounds like a bug.

                (And incidentally, an easier exploit to get money is to make profit from making Honey and Lemon; the ingredients are cheap to buy, and the end result fairly valuable to sell; make 99 of them on each batch, and you turn a tidy profit, and this can be done very early in the game)

                  OK, another double post, but whatever. This week has been unexpectedly productive; I've managed to translate a whole bunch of H-scenes - I think I've only got a handful left to go (maybe 4 or 5, but one has a whole bunch of variations). Well, I suppose I've also got the endings (another 4 H-scenes), but those are to be translated last. In any case, it's looking good for me to get back onto story translations soon.

                  However, I've also hit a minor snag. I had wondered why there was some apparent Japanese gibberish which RPGMaker Trans wasn't grabbing in some of the lines. Well, it turns out a handful of dialogue has dialogue face pictures which are actually Japanese textual emoticons. Now, these look terribly out of place in the English translation (as in it looks like a handful of lines start with complete and total gibberish), so I'm going to replace them with proper Emoji. That should be less confusing, while still replicating the spirit of using an emoticon for a character portrait.

                  The snag is that I'm not 100% certain on what all of them mean. I think I've got three of them identified, but the fourth is... I have absolutely no idea what it means, to be honest. Some kind of... crowd of crying people, maybe?

                  Anyway, throwing this out there: could someone with more knowledge of Japanese emoticons double check the ones I've identified and perhaps hazard a guess at the final one? Here they are (possibly not using all the right symbols as I transcribed these from a low resolution picture).

                        That's... actually a pretty good interpretation. It might even be right. I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty certain that the emoticon is used for a group of people identifying as "the booby legion" (or at least I translated it that way).

                        Now, is there a sexual harassment emoji?

                        @zipetya: You probably should report problems in RPGMaker Trans in bitbucket, yes. But I'm officially not supporting v4.5 now, as I'm focusing on getting v5 out, so help may be limited. Also, who the heck uses Windows 8?!

                              Indeed, Histoire does use these same emoticons. And I don't really understand them there, either.

                              Anyway, thanks for all the help, especially Sue Nami. Also, thanks to Google who have licensed Android's Emoji under Apache 2, so I can use them.

                              Here is a handy guide to the Emoji I'll be using (click for a bigger version/if it doesn't load for some reason):

                                I'm curious, is there a way for us to compile a patch ourselves using your interim work between patch releases? Or is that not possible with how you're doing the translation? I only ask because I follow the MGQ Paradox translation and I know it's possible to do so with that one, so I'm curious if I could do the same here.
