Videos longer than 30 minutes: An update

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, Ross released three Game Dungeon videos nearly an hour long each: Veil of Darkness at around 56 minutes, Phantasmagoria 2 at almost an hour and a half, and Messiah at almost 56 minutes.  Taken together, these videos constitute well over 3 hours of material: 193 minutes.  As it takes me about 1 hour to do one minute of video, subtitling these videos would take me about 193 hours, or about 8 days of nonstop work.

 

Sadly, as my life has gotten rather busy, in addition to my other projects, I have to announce that I will be no longer subtitling any video longer than 30 minutes long.  Harry Buster was 16 minutes and that was fine for me, and Freeman's Mind averages between 8 and 12 minutes long, and that's also fine.

 

However, if a video is more than 30 minutes long, I apologize, but I will not be the one subtitling them in the future.  They will eat up too much of my free time.

 

So, in recompense, I will be announcing that if you wish to subtitle them, please go ahead and post them to this forum and I'll proofread them and even edit them to conform with the standards for the subtitles I set up for myself, then submit them to the official videos.  And I thank you profusely!

 

tl;dr: My apologies, but I will no longer be doing subtitles for videos longer than 30 minutes.

Well, I hope "busy" isn't a substitute for "shitty" and you're doing fine. Just to think how much you have done over the years... and the speed you've been releasing new FM subs - you need a medal for doing such an amazing job and I thank you very much for all your work! Not only as a viewer, but as a translator as well. I mean, without you I wouldn't have anything to work with.  

Let's hope that someone will back you up on the longer episodes. Although, if that's not the case, in my opinion it would be more practical to take as much time as you need to make subs for the better albeit longer episodes (or the one's you like best), than to waste time on relatively throwaway stuff like Harry Buster. But then again, you know better what's best for you.
