  1. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Project Izanami has stopped. These were the last releases. Make sure that you had your game path set correctly under Settings -> Game exe; and of course, choosing the correct bit-ness.
  2. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Please refer to post #2. Also please apply the patch via the program.
  3. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    I just saw a screenshot from a new English Patch project called "家庭Hyuga". And it was quite good. It will be released soon, stay tuned! Project Izanami will now stop. I believe this new project is intended for TW; for other regions that Izanami supports, if you are still playing there and need an English Patch, feel free to contact people from "家庭Hyuga" (when it is published). 家庭Hyuga teaser 家庭Hyuga Instructions - Reddit
  4. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    There are 2 patch update types (packs are less frequently updated, about once a month), which are mutually inclusive. A maintenance patch update can contain a translation patch update. 1. Maintenance patch update: game client synchronization. When the game client is updated, a patch must be released to synchronize to the game client. If not, things will break. 2. Translation patch update: translation base synchronization. When the translation base is updated, a patch may be released to synchronize to the translation base. If not, there will be untranslated texts. Today, 05/17/2017, there will be new game updates for KR, TW, JP. As a demonstration for the importance of a maintenance patch update, Izanami will not release a new patch update; it will be pushed to 2 days later. Try the old patches yourself.
  5. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    With the new Community-Driven system, there will be new enhancements to make a better Izanami as a whole, and especially TW the best location for SEA players. TW will support all the official languages (English, German, French, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Thai, Vietnamese), and also some additional languages such as: Malay Filipino Indonesian
  6. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    As I have found several Temple alliances, so there is no reason for me to quit anymore. For Izanami, starting this June, there will be changes implemented to keep it "Community-Driven" such as continuous donation.
  7. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Added #6 to the FAQs. Btw read #4 again.
  8. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    You can start another project and get donations too. Should there be a reason for everything? What if I said "yes", would you ask for the reason? Also, I think that there are many better people out there with the power to help others. With me gone, they would appear, wouldn't they?
  9. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Added 4 and 5 to the FAQs.
  10. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Seem like there are a lot of people interested in me quitting so I made a FAQs here: 1. There was no raid previously, but you were fine with it? You may not know but I live in the US, and my raw ping to TW is around 200ms (in-game can be 300+ms). I have been playing on TW since beta (Nov 2014). I have spammed dungeons for a really long time and eventually it became boring. After that, all I did was log into the game and AFK, waiting for raids. 2. I heard that you were invited to a raid but you didn't accept citing "not wanting to carry"? I don't even have the skybreak elemental earring yet and also 200ms, do you expect me to carry? Shouldn't you carry me? 3. Why do you stop Project Izanami? Why should I continue making translations for a game that I no longer play? Why don't you do that yourself, I believe that the method to translate the game is public knowledge? If I can do it; you can, too. 4. Why was there a donate button? It is there so you can express your appreciation to me for making/maintaining Project Izanami. You might think that I received a lot of donations, but the truth is that from the start till now, the total amount of donations (for all regions of course) is less than 500USD. 5. Will you open-source Project Izanami? No. 6. Why did you take Project Izanami at all when you know that ping is a serious matter? It shouldn't exist in your hands at all. If it is for your own use then you should not publish this program and just keep it yourself. And if you chose to open it to the public, take your responsibility. Should there be a reason for everything? Also at that time, there was another team doing patches as well, but they quit several months ago. Why don't they take responsibility? What I do with my things is none of your concern, do I need permissions? By the way, if I didn't take Project Izanami at that time, someone else might take it, right? What about now? Shouldn't it be the same? Someone else might take it, right?
  11. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    One week has passed and I still haven't found a raid alliance. So I quit and Project Izanami (for all regions) is now inactive.
  12. Project Izanami [English Translation for CN/KR/JP/TW]

    Izanami will cease to exist when I quit the game. But do not worry so much because there will always be someone else making patches later.
