Same Great Translation, Bold New Look (somewhat)

Unread postby Ryuusoul » January 3rd, 2008, 2:33 am

mirror moon and Revolve hereby formally announce our merger into a single group: mirror moon.

Ever since mirror moon and Revolve joined forces to tackle Tsukihime years ago, the same staff has been working under two different names. mirror moon was the name applied to TYPE-MOON game translation and Revolve was pretty much anything else. In effect, we have been one group in everything but name, which sometimes led to confusion. As the scale of our projects expand, this distinction grows less relevant and more cumbersome.

Just some of the benefits include:

Not having to juggle multiple names for the sake of dubious distinction.
Enabling us to eliminate redundancy by consolidating to a single news website and eliminate unnecessary webhosting.
Better portraying the scope of our projects as all translations are viewed as coming from a single source.
Further centralizing certain processes and decentralizing others.

Our IRC channel will become #mirrormoon@irc.irchighway.net and our new forum location is http://forums.mirrormoon.org.

Future releases will be under the name mirror moon.

Because most of our merger has happened seamlessly long ago, this will not result in any conflicts of interest, interruptions in progress, or hostile corporate takeovers.

awesome. at least now everything's organized.
seeing those other TYPE-MOON projects (i.e. MBAC) in the list makes things easier to download now.

nice work.
idontknoW has left this forum, that is all.

Is the Arcturus Progress a copy and paste from a outdated source? In October 2005 you announced that raw translation was mostly done and now that project page says 0% for most of the dialogue.

Glad you have a more streamlined site now, and good so see all the non Type-Moon related projects getting some exposure. I guess Utawarerumono isn't there since it's a colaboration effort with Soylations.

That's good news.
One question: Will the name Revolve still be used? It's still in the forum logo.

EDIT: Oh never mind, looks like they changed it now. Looks pretty great.

No, I think mirror moon just doesn't have the time to replace the banner at the moment, but Revolve is merged in with mirror moon, so the word 'mirror moon' contains Revolve as well.

We will not use Revolve Translations for any new projects. There may be one or two older projects that will be released under the old banner, but most of them have migrated to the mirror moon label.

Aren't you used to random changes by now? =P

No, it's not your comp - least I hope it's not, otherwise mine is stuffed as well. Just be prepared for any changes for the next few days/weeks that may happen, mirror moon's having a new face lift, though I do wonder if anything else will change.

Doesn't show up like that on my screen. Maybe your character encoding is out of whack. >_>
