The Lifestream.net have a series of unused texts in VII written by Shademp. It's very interesting.

So I thought I would see if I can find anything interesting from VIII. I spent a couple hours looking at things last night.

But I just found a website that has most of them already, so you can read this and take from what it you want, be it just generally interesting or for useful additions to the wiki. 79.69.204.59 16:32, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and the website seems to show that the US and UK translations are different-- I never knew that before. I am unsure if the UK version is only different in the PC or in both PS and PC. I may check that later. 79.69.204.59 16:34, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

OOohhhh interesting. I just knew about the dummied Info section entry (just to be annoying so you can never fill it) and Trabia shop that doesn't exist. I knew there are some translation differences, like Selphie says "is homeroom over" or the whatever other line she has in the whatever other version. Also "nunchaku" was changed to shinobou (?). The PC version might be the same in all regions.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:58, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, yeah UK PC uses the US translation. 79.69.204.59 17:21, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

So the link hasn't done Esthar yet, so I'll give one interesting from Esthar:

  • In the shops, there are a number of textboxes related to shops. Most of the shops actually navigate with special menus, so these are strangely placed. The texts are as follows:

Are you buying that?
YesNo
You don't have enough money.

Most of the shops don't use textboxes. The "BOO! Monthly" fix is related to Occult Fan, but I don't understand their presence here. 79.69.204.59 17:31, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Also "nunchaku" was changed to shinobou (?).

The wiki says that was because nunchaku were illegal weapons at the time this game came out, and it's like that in all PAL versions. C A T U S E 18:37, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

UK PC:
”Check these out,
 a whip, nunchaku...“

It only says shinobu in the menu (PAL PS version). In the SeeD test it asks "Selphie's weapon is shinobu" or something and that's the only place I remember seeing it.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:11, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
