Alright, after a long week at work, I've finally got a little free time!
First off, I've indeed decided to go with the original Japanese version
from this point onward. Doing so eliminates any complications from accepting ROM translations, as well as provides additional appeal to a majority community of Japanese viewers. Text boxes fly by quickly enough, so I've realized that the language isn't really an important feature in this run (subtitles will suffice).
With that said, here's a rough WIP of Scenario 1 of the M.I.J.E.T. translation:
I'll definitely be able to shave some time off this stage. Due to Langrisser 2 having a more balanced damage calculator, I likely won't be getting many 'hail Mary passes', or unlikely one-shot kills, here like I did with Warsong. Superior stats are far more important, this time around. Therefore, the Town Guards will be defeated sooner. I should be able to eliminate a battle from Elwin and Hein, as well.
All in all, I'm pretty pumped for this one. I'm going to try to knock out a couple of stages a week until I get to the end.
