Odin scan translation, please? Edit

I am dying to know what these pages from the XIII Ultimania Omega say about Odin. There's a little box with what seem to be developer comments on him. Could you get this done quickly, if you can? I might try my own effort, but I'm a complete amateur at this. --Crystal Tear (talk) 16:27, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Box on the right side, right? Nakano (仲野) says that they had decided that Odin was going to be a horse in the planning stage, but he was the one who came up with the idea of having Odin's sword split into two so that Lightning would dual wield them. When he's in his normal mode he was made to look like the Joker from a deck of cards. He was originally a lot more harsh looking and dark colored, but he was told they wanted Lightning to be a knight with a white horse, so they made him his current color instead. They also didn't want to make the Eiodolons just be things that were used for battle, so he drew Odin with some possible scenarios in mind. Since Lightning had lost her parents at a young age and she tried to take their place and raise Serah, so for Odin they imagined she would project a fatherly image onto him.  mecorx (talk) - 22:10, Oct 16, 2014 Microchu ATB 
Not even a thank you? pfft.  mecorx (talk) - 01:10, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 
OH, good grief. I'm so sorry. I forgot. Thanks very much for the translation work. Jeez, I feel silly. --Crystal Tear (talk) 07:49, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps You Can Be Of Assistance?Edit

Have a template set up somewhere for this information?  mecorx (talk) - 06:45, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 

I would need somewhere to put the information...  mecorx (talk) - 07:34, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Sure. How are you counting? Left to right? Do you want Japanese and English? What about the other information?  mecorx (talk) - 07:54, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Okay. Also, what rarities need to be done?  mecorx (talk) - 07:59, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Alright, I noticed you don't have a column for card name. Not important?  mecorx (talk) - 08:11, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 
I would beg to differ on the names... there are some irregular ones like "Eggman Zidane".  mecorx (talk) - 08:17, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 
Idea. I'll type in all of the Japanese stuff first. Meanwhile, you can start figuring out the English names for abilities using our translation pages, etc? Would have to create new sections to avoid edit conflicts, though.  mecorx (talk) - 08:32, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 
The people doing localization probably don't always reference previous works/decide to come up with new translations. I guess I'll make a table/section for each page  mecorx (talk) - 08:39, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 

All of the character images can be extracted from the game... although, I haven't quite figured out how to get them in bulk, yet. All of the URLs look like this:[Card ID]/[resolution]/[random string].png

For example:
Refia (UR+)
Firion (UR)

Edit: I suppose you would need to look through all of the users in the game... Found something interesting, though:

Lightning (CR):
Lightning (CR) Animated:
Yuna (CR):
Yuna (CR) Animated:
Cloud (CR):
Cloud (CR) Animated: <-Had to look through 489 profiles for this one ಠ_ಠ
Tina (CR):
Tina (CR) Animated:
Agrias (CR):
Agrias (CR) Animated:
Squall (CR):
Squall (CR) Animated:
Cloud (CR):
Cloud (CR) Animated:
Lightning (CR):
Lightning (CR) Animated:
Rikku (CR):
Rikku (CR) Animated:

Looks like CR cards have animations. Also, just wanted to note that you switch between animated/still version using "/anime/" and switching extension to .gif/.png. Also, resolution can be "/60", "/120/" or "/320/".

 mecorx (talk) - 13:37, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 

For Legends, you basically have to play the game in a browser, use "Copy Image URL" for each image you want, manually change the /120/ to /320/ in every url and then save the image. I haven't figured out how to bulk download images. There is a Collection section in the game, but you can't view items you haven't collected...

Many Ability/Weapon images are here:


Click on the names of each weapon/armor to be taken to a page with higher res images for each.  mecorx (talk) - 22:15, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


That website hasn't been updated since ~2013. You can search all Legends/Abilities/Weapons up to SSR+ in the game using Trade, so I -can- save hi-res versions of every single one of those images... It's just UR/UR+/CR that need to be found manually.  mecorx (talk) - 22:28, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Where are you cropping them from?  mecorx (talk) - 22:46, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Each of those are... 60x60 pixels. The ones from the actual game are 320x320...  mecorx (talk) - 23:05, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 

It's pretty easy to pull out all of the URLs, just replace all of the /120/->/320/ and .gif->png
 mecorx (talk) - 23:13, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


You have to do it from within the game itself... You must actually have a Japanese Mobage account and play the game to do this.

1. Using Chrome, open game page(s) with all images you want
2. Use "Grab Images" (the ⇓) tab in this "Bulk Download Images(ZIG) extension:
3. Click "Single-tab" and switch to "Multiple-tab"
4. Press "GO" (Opens a new tab with all images)
5. Press the little ▲ next to "Beautify" to see new dropdown
6. Select "URL" to display URL of all images shown
7. Copy&Paste into notepad, replace all /120/->/320/ and .gif->.png
8. Copy resulting URLs
9. Click on Bulk Download Images again, go to Grab Images tab
10. Click on Single-tab, switch to "Get images directly"
11. Paste edited URLs, into box and hit "GO"
12. Press "Save" and all images are saved to your Chrome's designated Download location (Make sure "Ask where to save each file before downloading" is unchecked)
13. Find images saved in designated location (e.g.:

Have you tried extracting the image assets from the North American android/ios apps?  mecorx (talk) - 23:55, Oct 19, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Hm, image assets aren't even stored in the app... Also, the North American version lacks the Trade feature, so you can't even view assets. Sigh, so you basically need someone to do the entire project for you?  mecorx (talk) - 00:34, Oct 20, 2014 Microchu ATB 


I see. Take all of the thumbnail images from marshy705's website, open them in paint, cross out the ones that we already have in 320x320 .png format, and send them to me. I'll get the rest from the game. By the way, R/R+, SR/SR+ have slightly different images. Look carefully:

Also, you can fill out the Weapon/Type stuff in the "Other Data" column. Here are the equivalents:

短剣 - Dagger
剣 - Sword
大剣 - Greatsword
槍 - Polearm
投てき - Throwing
ロッド - Rod
杖 - Staff
刀 - Katana
格闘 - H2H (Hand-to-Hand)
銃 - Gun

力 - STR
魔 - INT
技 - AGI

I think that's all?  mecorx (talk) - 00:51, Oct 20, 2014 Microchu ATB 


You're working with a perfectionist. I would probably check.  mecorx (talk) - 01:02, Oct 20, 2014 Microchu ATB 


You can deal with these ones first:  mecorx (talk) - 16:07, Oct 20, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Firstly, are we sure they're not in the game? Also, legacy section sounds fine. I'll leave that up to you guys.  mecorx (talk) - 01:29, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Those "marked for deletion" images are are Summon Stones.

Ingus I -
Ingus II -

I think they can only be obtained from events.

Everything is still obtainable in the Japanese Version. They are your party members. The US version is missing a ton of features... I'm pretty sure they were never implemented.
 mecorx (talk) - 02:07, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 


The English version was released a year later than the Japanese one. Of course it's severely gimped.  mecorx (talk) - 02:17, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Do we need these:
 mecorx (talk) - 08:07, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Okay, updated the character folder. the (1) are Male versions, not duplicates! D:

Also, more work for you:
 mecorx (talk) - 08:56, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 


That's only the stuff from. The top 60 users on the leaderboard. I am ranked ~35k by the way. Also my ram is faulty so I've been getting bsods as well...  mecorx (talk) - 17:38, Oct 21, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Sounds like it's time for a healthy re-format. Repeated BSODs lead to corruption :x... This happened to my computer and now I'm troubleshooting it. Will probably have to use a portable build of Linux to transfer everything to another drive before reformatting. I still don't quite know which piece(s) of hardware are dying...


Crisis averted, successfully restored from an image I made of my C drive just 3 days ago, whew. :D


Cool, I'm adding more images! Do we want characters, abilities, or weapons?! :D  mecorx (talk) - 08:11, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Star Rod from FF11? Abilities are separate from Legends. You want the SSR Legends?  mecorx (talk) - 08:31, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Will do Legends first, then. Japanese FF11 Dictionary has all English equivalents:  mecorx (talk) - 08:40, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Oh, by the way, I'm not sure where you're storing the images you're uploading to the wiki, so I haven't had the chance to look, but perhaps it would be a good idea to label the Unknowns with their set number? Maybe I can help identify them.

PS: Dropbox folder updated. mecorx (talk) - 09:12, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 


I can give you access rights to the folder and its subfolders so you can move them yourself, if you want?  mecorx (talk) - 09:36, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Okay, I'll just move them when you tell me to. It's pretty easy to sort images by date modified to see what order they were uploaded in :3  mecorx (talk) - 09:49, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Okay, I'm done uploading images for the night. Just wanted to note that a collectible scenery frame, and a few misc items made it into the collection. The carrot is not a weapon or an ability, LOL. :3  mecorx (talk) - 10:14, Oct 22, 2014 Microchu ATB 


So, I discovered which of my ram sticks is broken and proceeded to order a new set. Working with 8gb for now :x. I've placed the images from yesterday in the Complete folder.  mecorx (talk) - 05:54, Oct 23, 2014 Microchu ATB 


My ~50 Chrome tabs regularly take over 8gb, lol. Probably what caused that stick to fail.  mecorx (talk) - 06:34, Oct 23, 2014 Microchu ATB 


I call it multitasking:  mecorx (talk) - 07:05, Oct 23, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Present for you! The following have been updated:

Assistance Part IIEdit


Oooh, I need to give you more work to do :3. Thanks for making the new section and point me to the ones that need translating. I'll get around to them sometime, lol.  mecorx (talk) - 09:07, Oct 24, 2014 Microchu ATB 


I put up some more pictures (including 1 job set in Chars). Unknown images are probably going to take some effort to find...  mecorx (talk) - 10:54, Oct 24, 2014 Microchu ATB 

I just found out how to do it. Should take a lot less time now.  mecorx (talk) - 12:18, Oct 24, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Didn't feel like adding all the information from my bed XD... It's there now.  mecorx (talk) - 20:47, Oct 24, 2014 Microchu ATB 


Added some more pictures.  mecorx (talk) - 21:19, Oct 24, 2014 Microchu ATB 
Does the Dropbox folder still load, lol? If not, I'll give you access (if you give me your email address).  mecorx (talk) - 05:29, Oct 25, 2014 Microchu ATB 


I just added a few hundred.  mecorx (talk) - 05:40, Oct 25, 2014 Microchu ATB 


When did you last "get them all"? I can move those out.  mecorx (talk) - 05:48, Oct 25, 2014 Microchu ATB 


10:54, Oct 24, 2014?  mecorx (talk) - 05:54, Oct 25, 2014 Microchu ATB 
Lol, do you have Skype? ID same as my username on wikia.  mecorx (talk) - 05:57, Oct 25, 2014 Microchu ATB 

Final Fantasy Artniks Edit

Hi, we over at the khwiki would like to use most of the code you wrote for the FF Artniks card subpages for a very similar game (Kingdom Hearts χ [chi]). Is this okay with you? --ShardofTruth (talk) 09:34, November 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hi there. You are certainly welcome to use the Artniks tables. Also, that's that browser-based game KH, right? I played it briefly when it first came out. :)  mecorx (talk) - 09:49, Nov 11, 2014 Microchu ATB 
Thanks and yes, it's the browser-based games (with over 1100 cards at the moment) :D --ShardofTruth (talk) 20:42, November 11, 2014 (UTC)

Luminous assistance, if you're willing? Edit

Hey there, Mecorx, I've found a PDF report by Square Enix on Luminous Studio, especially the engine's technology as used in Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae. I was wondering if you could help in translating it, then I could get the info in somehow. The thing looks very interesting. If there's nothing important or interesting, or if you don't want to deal with me after that silly scan translation thing (my fault), I understand. I just don't have the resources or ability to translate it myself, so I need help. --Crystal Tear (talk) 14:37, October 6, 2015 (UTC)

Pictlogica help, please? Edit

Would you be able to help out with translating info for Pictlogica? It was great you dropped by at one point and helped with the leader skills, and I was hoping you could help out with more. I've been referring regularly to the Japanese wiki, but that only goes so far. Thanks in advance! --Azul120 (talk) 17:50, November 26, 2015 (UTC)
