Today .hack has reached the three-quarter mark. There’s still much to be done, but I hope to have patch o.3 out in September.
I also updated the download page slightly to clarify some instructions for installation. It seems a lot people are still unaware that we know about the freezing issue. There is currently no fix. I have contacted several programmers and one has agreed to help, but life is keeping us all busy. A fix may be a long time off. But the game will eventually be finished.
If you find an issue or need help in installing the game, please read the entire page HERE first.
In the meantime, I’m still looking for any help with translating. A lot of people offer to be quality checkers, and I appreciate it, but what I really need are people who have a good grasp on Japanese. You don’t have to be the best reader since there are many translation tools, many of which I use, such as online dictionaries and kanji search tools if I get stuck.
So, if you can help, and can translate even one file every day or two, it would help speed up the process by several weeks, if not months.
Thanks everyone for the support!
