msg2wiki is a Python 2 script that spits out (mostly) perfect MediaWiki markup for stage dialogue given a .msg decompilation. As you can see, it needs to be edited with the proper stage, BGM, and character names for a particular game. Major issues:

  • stages with 3 sections (e.g. where mid-bosses have dialog) spit the mid-boss sections out at the end
  • there's a spurious character name header before BGM and character title announces
  • ruby is basically not dealt with at all (but easy to catch at a glance)
  • it only really works with output to a UTF-8 terminal because I'm lazy

Still, making these few minor edits is much preferable to typing out the whole thing by hand.

Current work queue

This section is a lie, but is left here for historical purposes.

See my projects page. Feel free to add suggestions in the suggestions section there.

In order of priority, descending, more or less. Please feel free to add things you'd like to see done after the HTML comment at the end.

Generally, the latest chapter of Silent Sinner in Blue will take priority over other things, until it's finished. (After all, they're generally short and easy.)

There are a couple of things that are always on the list, and will be done in no particular order:

  • Curiosities of Lotus Asia chapters that strike my fancy
  • Remaining text from Bohemian Archive and Perfect Memento

Edits to your MoF Translation

Hello, I've made some edits to the Prologue, and would like to hear what you think about them. I'm still learning Japanese, and haven't done any translation before this. The Touhou backstories and in-game dialogue seem like a fun place to start practicing (at least, with editing, if not actual translation). If you're ok with the edits, I can work on the scenario dialogues; or if not, feel free to revert them back. AlephNull 01:02, 22 May 2007 (PDT)

Most of them make sense; it was lazy for me not to go back and edit it myself after some time had passed, honestly, especially given how long I'd been awake at the time. Kyan~ A couple things, though:
  • "That fellow ordered me ... " - Fellow does imply a man to most people, I'd guess, and the chances of a male Touhou antagonist are probably pretty slim, so I'd suggest something like "The visitor ordered me ... ", or even the dreaded "they".
  • multitude -> countless - is there something I'm missing? This doesn't seem to change the meaning or voice much. I usually tend against phrasing edits of that nature since they're almost totally subjective. (The original would literally be something like "incredible number of", but I think that somehow that doesn't give the right feel for that passage.)
  • They -> that person - I'd guess most people would say "they" in conversation rather than "that person" (though this is minor).
Generally, though, they all obviously made sense to me. --T. Solamarle 11:42, 22 May 2007 (PDT)
"Fellow does imply a man to most people"
Really? Huh. I always thought it was a gender-neutral term, but I just checked, and dictionaries say it generally refers to men. English really needs more gender-neutral terms. - Pilpsie

Thanks for Wiki Save

Yup, I'd like to thank you for the heads up on the generic title Chapter 1. I have extremely bad wiki skills, and appreciated the fact that you caught one to it. Thank you for the save point, and have a nice day.--Mentaljosh

Call & Response

I left this message on the Gensokyo Call and Response talk page, but seeing as you haven't posted to that page for just over a year, I figured it might to do echo the message here:
I just added a few more references taken from the commentary article at Spira's Diary. However, I don't know if they were initially omitted on accident or on purpose. (For instance, they might not have been there when you last checked.) Did I go into too much detail, or should we go ahead and add the rest of this person's (non-Touhou) notes?--Apcog 00:55, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Translation party

Hi Solamarle, we're looking to get all the translators into the wiki's IRC chat (link on the front page) to do a collaborative translation of TH13.5 and the TH14 demo coming out on Sunday. We wanted to know if you were interested. :) ― Darkslime 16:30, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
