Well, as I´m sure most people have realized by now, the Tactics Ogre patch translates the game into Al Bhed and not English. Happy April Fool´s Day, everyone! Consider this my way of getting back at all the are-we-there-yet whiners I´ve had to deal with over the years. If I truly intended to delay the patch two weeks for every person who asked when it´d be done, well, you´d probably be getting it on Christmas instead.

What´s no joke, however, is the very real amount work that went into this. The actual translation patch - which will be coming in a few days, don´t worry - will be nearly identical to the one available now. The Al Bhed version contains the full English text, sort of - I just used a different table file to insert it into the rom. In fact, if I didn´t have to get up for my crazy weekend work schedule in the morning, I´d probably get things ready to go right now! But them´s the breaks, and a few more days won´t kill you. And for those of you who are curious, yes, the Al Bhed version of the patch will be moved to the Tactics Ogre page´s "Extras" subsection, where it will be preserved for all who care to try it.

See you in a few days!

I can't believe that we fell for it, even myself. I've notified a fellow TO player about the patch yesterday, and just recently followed up with a mea culpa.

I think I need a dictionary to know how to pronounce some of those words phonetically of the Al Bhed language when you get to some of the weirder ones.
