Early design doc: Ryo Earning Money to Meet Ren

Here's as second early story flowchart for Shenmue II that I've translated into English. (The diagram can be found in the Shenmue art book).

One of the most interesting findings:

- In this flowchart, the book-airing task at Man Mo temple is included, but Ryo was going to be able to duck out from the task (when Xiuying is out) and go down to the harbor area to search for Ren. But if he's not back by 5 pm Xiuying gets mad!

Here are the first couple of sections of the diagram:

Article: Evolution of the Shenmue 1 Undub

https://i.imgur.com/KpMkvabm.png
In late 2013, the break-through many had been waiting for materialized at last: the appearance of a fan-made Undub for Shenmue 1.

Part One of this series on the Evolution of the Shenmue Undub looks at the original release made by Sm1th - how it was put together and the pros & con. The future Part Two will cover the later kogami release.

Part 2 is now up, and looks at how the Kogami version of the Undub was put together.

Part 3 will be about translating the (relatively) small amount of Japanese text that remains in the Kogami version.

I really want to play it on my dreamcast. thanks

You may be in luck! There's a plan to look at making an 80 min version also but it will be a bit further down the track.

Re: Update #77: New Character & Lakshya Digital

Also, from my crappy phone screen the temple looks like it says 堂札社千

Tangzha Community Temple? Thousand Tangzha Building? I dunno. Haha.
That actually should be read right to left: 千社札堂 (Qian she zha tang).
...
EDIT: OK, now that I've seen that higher-res pic (thanks!), I changed my mind and now think that is a 札, after all, like ShenmueTree said.
So, Scroll Hall of a Thousand Sacrifices.*

*I'm sure there's a more elegant way to translate it. English isn't my mother tongue.
Just to add to this, this word actually also exists in Japanese (as you mentioned it refers to the tags - for wont of a better word - with the names of worshippers that are put up in temples). So a more functional translation could simply be "Hall of Name Tags".

Of special interest is that getting your own name tag is part of the $800 reward tier. So if you have backed at that level you should be able to enter this building and find your own tag!

Re: Update #77: New Character & Lakshya Digital

As a matter of fact, there isn't such a word in Chinese, hence why I was trying to wrap my head around the meaning.
Ah, that's interesting. I assumed the writing (and the costume, customs) would exist in Chinese.

I mentioned here in the forums before how Shenmue 2's street and shop signs would use some Japanese kanji variants not used in China, and that I hoped that Yu Suzuki would be more meticulous in that regard, in Shenmue 3. Now, we're already seeing a temple with Japanese words, Chinese architecture and a Shinto assistant... This isn't encouraging, but best to wait until we see more. Maybe I'm just missing something, or maybe there will be a good explanation for this.
Hm, yes while it's hard to draw a conclusion with the in-progress material, I also hope that Chinese customs, signage and so on is represented as authentically as possible.
