Some improvement file(s)

I made some improvements to the background of the results screen.

The "BS" the background is not really black, but semi transparent. Plus, the font is thicker. Also, the "BS" has some king of faint yellowish aura but I wasn't able to recreate it because I suck at photoshop. The "Zelda" title is not red but light orangy. I'm going to leave that for another day.

Anyone, here's the pic in case someone updates the Restoration Patch.

I'll post more stuff later.

Here's one with a more accurate border.

God, what's the deal with the edit button? Why does it disappear?

Anyway, here's the first results screen completely translated and as close to the original as possible:

It's good that you're trying to improve my background tile, but I can't even see the difference. Can you put them side-by-side (original, mine, yours)? Also I'm pretty sure I had the correct orange tone for the Zelda part, but I wouldn't be surprised if you used a reference picture from a different week with slightly different colors (caused by bad video quality).

As for your translated results screen, I like it a lot but I'm sure it's going to confuse everybody if we add it into the restoration hack.

And yes, the Edit button disappears after a while. :(

Sure. The difference is not a lot. I just made the "BS" a bit more transparent and thicker instead of plain black. (Because it doesn't look black in the videos)

I did not put the faint yellowish aura the "BS" word has in the original because I could not figure out how to do it. Also, I improved the border by adding a second lower orange one like the original. Plus a faint shadow-border in the inside.

*The differences are almost indistinguishable unless you zoom the image or put it next to a dark background.

Also, congrats on doing the titles. I would have not been able to figure out that's what it said from that low quality video.

As for confusing people, well... that's how the original is, so all you are doing is being true to it. In my opinion, you can leave the more normal results screen for other patches.

Oh yeah, I also have correct translations courtesy of a professional translator. The ending text is nowhere near to what the actual ending says.

Where'd that Princess go?

A professional translator?

Think they'd be up to tackling the voice acting? (It's a hefty task, I know)

Adding an original screenshot.

Things different that I notice based on your pictures:
- The BS font is too thin in mine.
- The BS color is too dark in mine and too light in yours.
- The BS border is just a little too pale in mine and missing in yours.
- The horizontal lines are completely missing in yours.

For the shading around the letters, I used font antialiasing over a different-colored background.

Also, I'm using Paint.NET.

Duke: I think that's way too much :P

He does me favors sometimes, but it's usually just a few lines/paragraphs. Have you tried asking at Romhacking.net? Or maybe splitting the text between several translators?

Here's his translation (credit to jonny2x4) from the narration after the 4th week is over (after beating Ganon):

Announcer: "The time for Hyrule to vanish has come. The adventure ends here."
Elderly voice: "How was it, brave hero? Did you have any fun? A password will be shown on the result screen. Write it down and remember it. A magnificent present is waiting for you next time. Don't take too long before the screen disappears. Until next time."

SmashManiac:

Yeah, mine has faults too. I just used yours as a base and tried to clean up as much as I could a screenshot of the original video to see the stuff you missed. The results screen I posted is just one of two. I haven't done the results screen with the 8 trifoce yet.

-I increased the thickness of the font because it seems the original is thicker. Mine is still not as thick as the original.
-I guess we'll never figure out the true color unless clearer videos surface.
-Yeah, I couldn't do the BS border. It looks it's some kind of yellowish border, but every test I did looked horrible. So I just left it alone.
-Oh god, I thought those horizontal lines were product of scanlines. I'll see if I can add them then.

My point was to show how both tiles could be improved into one über-tile. :)

I'll post the new pic here after I add the lines. I'll see if I can get a friend of mine to add the borders to the "BS" since he knows a lot of photoshop.

I am really sorry to say this, but I will not hack this.
The one we have is fantastic, great and sufficient for all purposes, whether or not colors match the original.

I'm really sorry and your enthusiasm is of course very appreciated. But look, I patch for 5 years (if not longer) and it does not really make fun looking at hex after coming from work, while friends go drinking a beer.

So I will only hack very important things (like bugs) or projects (like the recent sublines patch). Further, I do not like to hack into working patches since this is a terrible bugsource and new patches have to be completely playtested when (re-)released.

You may ask Tre or MoP how much fun this makes. Multiply their answer with 10 and you find my joy factor for revising working hacks.

Hehe, I can imagine how boring it must be, yes. I'll still post my files in case some future member is able to improve the patch even more.
