Is there a reason to change "riichi" to "reach"? It's not exactly equivalent or a cognate as far as I know. Rukaroa 04:44, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Since the terminal "i" isnt usually pronounced in the Japanese word, it is actually quite phonetically similar to "reach". Possibly for this reason, the word has a great deal of currency among English-speaking fans, to the point that the most popular English-language site I know of for Japanese rules mahjong is ReachMahjong.com. Still, if that isn't what you want to go with, I'd prefer a pseudo-translation "ready hand/declaring a hand ready" in place of leaving "riichi" untranslated. glasnost0 07:57, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
I was mostly curious. The alternatives are little too long for edits anyway. Rukaroa 14:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm noticing quite a few items in the game that I can't find on the image dump. "Free Play" for example. Maloncanth 02:20, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

The editor ("backwards fairy") said that he was splitting the text images into two groups and only uploaded one. IIRC he uploaded the majority/most important images, and that is the block that was placed onto the wiki page. The thread got deleted so I can't get his exact words. He's been missing for quite a while now anyways, or doesn't know about the current thread or something. A pity since I wanted to get the edited images for a ones that have a translation to create a partial patch in the hopes of attracting some translators. I could post the link for all of the image files in the game, but it's unsorted and includes images with no text, plus it'd be a pain to figure out which ones are already in the image block. Honestly it'd be best to get backwards to upload the rest, but I don't believe anyone has any contact information for him. Qazmlpok 02:29, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

No patch file to download?[edit]

I've seen youtube vids of the game patched to English, so there must be a file. How come there's no download link here, or anywhere on google?

There's one on the main Touhou Unreal Mahjong page. Except it's really out of date since that seems to just be the one for base thmj (i.e. no expansion). No one is still working on the revision2 patch either. -- Qazmlpok 20:04, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
