Long time no talk, everybody, and nice to see that MFO is still going! I had been on hiatus from F-Zero for a while, but then Guy Perfect mentioned a translation project, so I've been sucked back in! I'm going to post more translations of the story mode so that we can put them in a translated game. Chapters 1-10 are already on here, so I'll start with Chapter 11:
Ryu and friends head off to the planet Hell to participate in a charity event for children. Jack and Ryu stand in front of their machines to take pictures with the kids and sign autographs, and one boy, under Zoda's orders, attempts to steal Ryu's Dragon Bird.
This boy's name is Clank. A computer hacker, he sneaks into the Dragon Bird, starts the machine up, and drives away in it.
Falcon appears mysteriously and recovers the machine from Clank. He tells Clank to "go to Mute City and find something" before leaving with the machine.
The next day is the day of the race. Watching Falcon break away from the pack to win the competition, Clank decides to go to Mute City. He sneaks on to the Dragon Bird again, this time to ride with Ryu on his return trip.
Clank arrives in Mute City and begins living and working at the Falcon House.
Zoda's lead is abruptly taken away by supposed ally Miss Killer. His machine breaks down, leaving him upset.
The next race is the "Christmas Cup", taking place at shooting-star-barraged Outer Space: Meteor Stream. Miss Killer wants to present a victory to Black Shadow; Zoda is mysteriously absent. Ryu and friends also cautiously enter the race. And as it turns out, a very unpleasant Christmas present has been prepared for them -- Ryu, Captain Falcon, and Miss Killer are dead even as a meteor suddenly bombards the track! Someone -- Zoda -- has deactivated the barrier above the track.
Zoda ignored even the danger to his ally Miss Killer in his efforts to attack Ryu and Falcon. But then the Black Bull appeared in the race! The enemy-scattering vehicle protects Miss Killer this time and explodes... but the driver is in fact not Black Shadow, but a a decoy robot. Ryu and friends gape in astonishment as the real Black Bull whooshes past them, cackling as he takes Miss Killer with him.
Antonio Guster is fed up with the lax discipline of space pirate Samurai Goroh.
Guster wants to use explosives, but Goroh refuses to permit it, ordering the troublesome Guster off the ship. Zoda sees this and takes the opportunity to invite Antonio to betray Goroh and join the evil organization Dark Million. Goroh's minions warn their boss that Guster may turn on him, but Goroh is adamant in his trust for his subordinate.
When the race begins, Ryu and Goroh are in the lead, and Guster is indeed betraying Goroh: he's added land mines to the course! Goroh doesn't get trapped in the explosions, however, slowly leading his machine through the smoke.
Goroh brandishes his sword at the traitorous Guster, but lets him escape without swinging the weapon. Guster laughs at Goroh's weakness. Ryu, watching this, is relieved as he realizes that Goroh hasn't done anything immoral.
|Yeah, I'm esctatic! I had no idea I'd be capable of finishing this, and now it looks like I'm miving right on to the doctorate program! Now I can get back in touch with friends, relax, and of course play a little F-Zero. |
RadioShadow - any progress on the half-width/VW font?
And once comment about the characters' names: Ryu's girlfriend is named 'Misaki Haruka', and both Misaki and Haruka are common girls' names. (Misaki topped the rankings several times around 1990 or so.) Even though all the other character names have the given name first and surname last, I think maybe in this case, Misaki is her last name and Haruka is her given name; Ryu always refers to her as Haruka, and Misaki (meaning 'three cliffs' and not 'beautiful blossom') can also be a surname, though it's rare. In the game her whole name is in katakana so it's hard to tell which is correct. Anyone know?
