Thanks. The hard part was dumping and inserting names and descriptions for all of the FE bugs, creating images for all of the FE bugs, and writing the php code to display all of the FE bugs.

I think you have mistaken me for someone that understands Japanese. :blink:

Okay, I'll get it fixed.

XD Okay, fair enough. ^^; Sorry. It might be easier to use the kana for bug names that's already on wikifang's list of bugs though, since it's already fixed up. XD

Thanks.

Can I ask a favour though? The bug descriptions are still as they are in the game. Can you or anyone else can convert them to the more readable format for consistency's sake? I don't trust myself with Japanese.

I have uploaded a dump of the bug descriptions:

Started this back up.

The first thing when I saw this Bug was "Missingno!?"

Sorry for my spam, but I just had to post this.

It does look remarkably like Missingno! XD

Its name is Surface, though, and I think a surface is basically just another term for an object or plane represented by a 3D model. If you look at it from the side you can kind of see that it has hills and a depression like a topographical model, and it also has noticeable edges (and of course a glaring face in the middle XD). I could be totally wrong, but that makes sense enough to me.

So it's the NURBS cousin of Porygon, then.

Looking at these again (they're super cool and I finally started playing Bugsite so I was comparing them with those ingame), I noticed the prolonged sound marks in Bug names/descriptions are using hyphens (-) rather than the actual character (ー). The game rip probably uses them interchangeably so that's understandable =) Also, on the Sting site they should be vertical (|) for the names.

Any chance of a Jank site or has the comic sans put you off that one? :V

I've started reworking the sites to be, well.. not tiny. That and making the sites responsive (resizes to fit in the browser viewport). I plan to steadily work though each site one at at time and then finally finish Jank.

The Guardian landing site:
http://www.cavestory.org/andwhyis/guardian/ (I'll get a proper domain for these when I actually finish them all)

I kinda cheated a little and Google translated "new release" into "新作", but I doubt that's correct. If you know what the actual translation should be then please let me know.
