so how does the game compare to super robot taisen OG for those that have played it?

It's more primitive, particularly it lacks the ability to customize pilot skills, and the support system was brand new in this one, so it's not refined yet.You can consider AG to be sort of an alternate version of OG2. One with famous Japanese robots.

Sombold seems to be an actual name, though, sort of like the Sanger/Zengar thing.

But "Sanger" is how it's spelled, and "Zengar" is how it's pronounced. It's only a thing because Japanese uses a purely phonetic alphabet.

loving the patch and yes I can tell it's an extream beta just one odd quirk I'm probably rounding that to translator preference but, Ryune Zoldark, an obviously Icelandic girl with a Japanese sounding first name now like I said I'm chalking this one up as translator preference but if your wanting to go cannon why not use Lune?

It's Captain Global, not Captain Gloval.

Gloval was his Robotech name. Where he was russian instead of italian.


Seriously. I'm not making dumb stuff up JUST to annoy everyone. It's a side benefit!

And fear nopt: I'm not gonna touch the zentradi names. The official romanizations for those are totally insane. By design, even!
n(they wanted alien romanizations for alien names).

APPRIVOISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Though really, I'm unsure how much more awesome it can be. Kakizaki the walking cannon fodder ALREADY mowed down half an army singlehandedly.

I'd always thought that the Gloval/Global thing was just a knee-jerk "Since Macek translated it like this, it HAS TO BE wrong!" reaction rather than anything that had a reason.

finaly it works; i had to basicly NOT follow the previous instructions, so like anyone having problems with late battle reactions? such as like geting hit to 0 no hp and the game is still going but the person doesnt die or anything until a few momments toooo late? think i need to adjust my frame rate or something?

I'd always thought that the Gloval/Global thing was just a knee-jerk "Since Macek translated it like this, it HAS TO BE wrong!" reaction rather than anything that had a reason.

From what Animeigo said in the past, it's not so much "Carl Macek is teh suxxor" as "we want people to see clearly that this isn't Robotech, so let's make the names distinctly different where we can." Regardless, they explictly weren't going on "this is the RIGHT way to spell the name."

(My pet peeve, incidentally, is "Palace Athene," but that's Bandai's screwup, not AGTP's.)

Oh, also, I think Hope and Faith's names got switched around. I haven't gotten the full-HP restoration spell yet, but the SP restoration has been tagged Faith, which is the name Atlus used for HP restoration, and which doesn't seem like it would logically follow from "Anticipation" (Hope in the OG releases).

Edit: Chapter 16 on the Fort Severn route is "I'll Sell the Gundam!" on the title screen, and "Gundam For Sale!" on the intermission screen.

In the bazaar, a Cartridge (restore EN and ammo) has the description of a Repair Kit (restore HP).

Speaking of mixed up naming.
All the GM variants from 0083 - GM Cannon, GM Custom and GM Quale (hope I got the spelling right) have a weapon called Beam Rifle. Except that it's clearly a machine gun (or Ballistic Rifle like it's called on a Leo).

2 issues with translation so far, both are with older series that I imagine the translator had not seen in full (since few English-speaking mecha fans have). They should be minor corrections. I have not noticed many other problems thus far despite the high number of obscure series used in alpha Gaiden, so good job overall! 
A Raideen character's name has been entirely mistranslated. "Dr. Touzan" should be "Dr. Higashiyama". This appears to be a simple issue with the translator simply picking the wrong reading for kanji that can have several pronunciations. In the Raideen series itself, this character's name is always pronounced aloud as "Higashiyama".
One of Jiron's attack quotes has been translated as "Xabungle is a boy!!" This is an extremely inappropriate translation given the content of the Xabungle plot. Explaining why is somewhat complicated so I will elaborate.
The phrase that appears to be translated as "boy" is "otoko no ko", and in ordinary contexts this would be correct. However, it is a very old writing convention of mecha shows that a "main character" robot like Xabungle is not referred to with standard object pronouns, but with the "ko" kanji that usually means "child". However, when a robot is called "ko", it is very inappropriate to translate this kanji in any way that literally
So, Jiron is not literally stating his robot is a male child. More importantly, it would be extremely out of character for Jiron to call his robot a "boy" because of his role in Xabungle's story. In Xabungle, other characters constantly make fun of Jiron for being childish or acting like a little boy, mostly because he is still upset about the death of his parents long after the three-day time limit for that has passed. Jiron is very sensitive to this mockery and often tries too hard to prove his masculinity and maturity by performing extreme acts of violence that show off Xabungle's power. The scene where he first yells his ridiculous phrase in the show is one such moment.
What Jiron is actually saying with this attack quote, and in the original scene this line references, is that Xabungle is a "man robot", emphasizing Xabungle's cool adultness and maturity. That literal translation would sound fairly stupid in English, of course, but changing "boy" to "man", "man's robot", or "manly robot" communicates the original spirit of the line much better.
