Hey guys!

Can't believe I haven't logged into this forum in 12years! Forgot I had an account here until I got a email from you guys the other day lol.

Good timing though as being a partly Final Fantasy fan site I'm hoping there may be some diehard PlayStation fans here?

I'm currently mucking around with a very rarely known (in the western world anyway) PlayStation 1 game called Civizard - Majutsu no Keifu which is basically an official Simtex/Micropose remake of their very well known and popular PC classic fantasy TBS game Master of Magic. Civizard has a lot of interesting differences to the original game particularly in the graphics department. I'm a pretty big MoM addict so the more I muck around with this different version the more I want to properly play it. Problem is I don't speak Japanese haha!

I'm pretty out of touch with the classic console game translation scene these days so I'm wondering if anyone here knows of a English translation patch for this game? If not then are there some good PlayStation Japanese translation sites you know of that I could hunt for this game at?

This game is so rare it barely even gets any results on google so I'm guessing the answer is no to everything. If so I'll have to try and do my own I guess. I know nothing of patching/hacking so it would just be creating reference screenshots with English translations that I can put on a second monitor while playing the game on the main monitor.

The original English PC game makes a good reference of course plus the google translation app on my phone gives a few more hints so hopefully I can at least translate all the main buttons! Hopefully I can track down a friend of a friend that reads Japanese too which would definitely help!

Hey Blake00. I'm guessing it was Modbot's SG Day spam that drew you here? Welcome back. Feel free to join in/dig any of the other threads!

I've personally never heard of this game, but it seems like an interesting project. My Japanese is useless, so I'm afraid I won't be able to help there boo

Moving this from general to the game forum btw.

What kind of game is this? Like a tactical game. Never heard of it and I've never played M&M, so I don't have much of a point of reference there.

Opps sorry Damien, think I got thrown off by the 'descushion' thing and thought 'non-square' game talk went in General discussion lol.

Yup it was the spam bot. Think I've received a few over the years but this was the first time I was curious enough to click on the link and I was like "oh yeah, I remember this place" haha!

MoM & Civizard are retro fantasy turn based strategy games that play quite similar to classic Civilization games. MoM was a big hit back in the mid 90s and pretty much spawned all the great Fantasy TBS games we have today like Endless Legend, Warlock MoA, Age of Wonders and Elemental - Fallen Enchantress just to name a few.

As Damien points out, check out my retro website (OP Sig) if you wanna know more about MoM as I've got a massive section on it with pics & vids etc. Currently Cvizard is not covered on my MoM website as I didn't even know it existed until recently so I want to have a good go at it (if I can figure it out lol) and then do a nice tribute!

If there's any fluent Japanese speakers here I might run some screenshots by you lol!!

The best person at Japanese (probably) who's been logged in today is Grey Fox, but he's not around here too frequently. Vibing_V may be better than him though. There's also Reiji, but he's only posted once in the last year or so.

By the way, the 'descushion' thing is a reference to an injoke from a few months after you originally joined SG.

The origin thread is reference under black metal fang spelling thread in the archive. Well, actually this is the thread that mocks the thread (of the same name as the current forum) that started it. The original thread itself was probably deleted by the thread starter after he was mercilessly mocked.

No worries. Apparently a 'friend of a friend' on my facebook speaks Japanese so hopefully I can push that link.

To be fair, in that descushion thread, I did minimal mocking myself, even drawing it back to the intended Twilight Princess topic on several occasions.

Good luck with the translation lead. Don't be a stranger! (or see you back here in 2030 to not talk about Final Fantasy games some more Chocobo)

Yeah, that's probably why black metal fang spelling thread was the one that was archived. It's much funnier.

lol I think it's 'English Japanese' word for Civilization but who knows lol.

In the end I got some help from a friend of a friend and they gave me a rather useful website where you can draw Kanji symbols into it.

Posted a very basic translation to the main game menus and buttons to GameFAQs to help others in the future.
