Gibberish Generator V4 | Translate from English to any Fantasy Language (and have it be pronounceable!)
(I finally did it! After 14 months, I finally got a new and improved version to work while in browser!)
~~Hello, reddit. This magical mystical witchcraft will translate English into any fantasy language. ~~Or for those of you of dwarven blood, zugano reddit gesth meio gamuzew hizuto dutle gogagutle Zazan gup itle muaw giigar.
This thing takes the syllables of the English word you input, increments them, and spits them back out for a brand new amalgamation of similar length words. Instructions are in the file. The only thing you will need to do is save a version to your drive, so I don't have doofuses editing it and breaking it.
Also notice the loading bar in the top right! Wait on it to finish before you think it doesn't work. FAIR WARNING
. This thing has all 370,000 words of English in it, so it takes a bit to translate. This sentence takes about two and a half seconds to translate.
And if you want to switch languages, it takes a little over a minute, so prepare the translator before you use it!
- Available in browser; no download anymore!
- Stylized languages: Elvish sounds elegant, and Orc sounds brash. No more scary fey queens!
- Suffixes: Some words now end in properly stylized suffixes. Yes, abyssal has tons of zzz's.
- There is an option to turn on and off syllable breaks. This helps with pronunciation.
- Added Deep Speech.
- Now, if it doesn't know the word, it will just show it without translating.
Thought I would answer some questions here to get ahead of the curve. I'll gladly answer more! * Yes, this could be faster somewhere, but I'm not a programmer full time. If you have any great suggestions, let me know. I do want to keep it in google sheets for the time being, because everyone can use that! * Syllables are based on word length, not actual syllables. ERA has two syllables, while SCRATCHED is one. English is weird, but the length of the word works most of the time. * Plurals, tenses, conjugations, and so on aren't applicable. With 370 k words, I couldn't think of a valid and true way to say that BUTT is the same root word as BUTTS with a different type of end to it. Same for POOP and POOPING and POOPED. Yes, I am juvenile.
I hope you ~torment your players~ have a joyous and grand old time with it!

A Guide to the Differences Between JRPGs Ports and Enhanced Versions (Part 1).
A new day, a new guide.
This is the hardest one of the guides I wanted to make, because the information is never easy to get, which is weird. So please forgive me if I missed some changes, and by all means tell me if I missed any of them or if any of them are incorrect
Since this list is really long, this guide is going to come in parts, this part covers:
- Valkyrie Profile (PSX) vs Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (PSP vs iOS & Andriod).
- Chrono Trigger (SNES) vs Chrono Trigger (PSX vs NDS vs iOS & Andriod vs PC).
- Star Ocean 2 (PSX) vs Star Ocean: Second Evolution (PSP) vs PS4 (JP.ver).
- The Last Remnant (Xbox360) vs The Last Remnant Remastered (PC vs PS4 & Switch).
- Tales of Vesperia (Xbox360) vs Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (PS4/PC/Switch/Xbox One).
- Tales of Symphonia (GC) vs Tales of Symphonia (PS2 (JP.ver only) vs PS3/PC).
- Skies of Arcadia (DC) vs Skies of Arcadia: Legends (GC).
- Person 3 (PS2) vs Persona 3 FES (PS2 (English.ver)) vs Persona 3P (PSP).
- Persona 4 (PS2) vs Persona 4 Golden (Vita vs PC).
- .hack//G.U (PS2) vs .hack//G.U. Last Recode (PS4/PC).
- Final Fantasy 12 (PS2) vs FF 12: International Zodiac Job System PS2 (JP.ver only) vs FF12 Zodiac Age (PS4/PC/Switch/Xbox One).
- Rune Factory 4 (3DS) vs Rune Factory 4 Special (Switch).
- This is made for Ports and Enhanced versions, so No Remakes. So this is about differences between the different versions of Chrono Trigger, and not about the differences between FF7 ps1 and FF7 Remake.
- The differences are taken from all over the internet, either from official sources, wikis, youtube, and even forums.
- I cover all the changes for a game, unless there is too many, in which case I will highlight the ones worth mentioning.
Valkyrie profile PSX: Nearly identical to the Japan version but with minor fixes in the menu screen. In the Japanese version, Characters not in the party were unable to change or learn skills nor were they able change or remove equipment. The US version allowed out of party members to change and learn skills as well as change or remove equipment without being added to the party. Also in the Japanese version, Lenneth would unequip all her skills and equipment when switching between sword and bow. The US version 'remembers' the previous setting when switching weaponry and is automatically equipped with the skills and equip. Another improvement over the Japanese version is an improved item sorting option.
There are a few instances of censoring such as Badrach's smoking.
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth PSP: Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth lacks the improvement made in US version. Rather than re-rendering the textures of the dungeon maps, TOSE cropped and upscaled the pre-rendered images to fit the portable console's screen, resulting in severe blurring in some areas. This version also removes the anime opening movie in favor of 3D CGI, animated movie. Certain key story-sequences were animated in the same style as the opening movie and can be viewed at anytime in the Gallery option in the title screen once unlocked in the story. The animated scenes include:
Other big changes are:
- Opening Movie
- Lenneth's Awakening
- Jelanda's Transformation
- Alicia witnesses Barbarossa's execution
- Lenneth's encounter with the Lord of the Undead
- Lenneth and the Homunculi
- A chance encounter between "Meril" and Lucian
- Lenneth in Weeping Lily Meadow
- Lucian's departure to Valhalla
- Hrist's Awakening
- The Sovereign's Rite
- A Ending
- An enhanced version of the original game's localization
- Square Enix cleaned up the original game's English script and additional voice over dialogue for the CG movies was recorded by New Generation Pictures, rather than the original company, TAJ Productions.
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth iOS & Andriod: This is the PSP version being ported to iOS & Andriod, with the following changes:
- Enhanced graphics such as character portraits. >* Enhanced Text.
- Enhanced UI.
- The option to skip cut-scenes.
- In-app purchases to unlock collectibles
- Ability to turn on auto-battle.
Chrono Trigger PSX: Anime cut scenes created by original character designer Akira Toriyama's Bird Studio and animated by Toei Animation.
A new Extra Mode Option was added that is divided into different categories of viewable extras, that are unlocked as you finish the game, and just as shown in the picture, they are:
- Art Gallery.
- Music Box.
- Tech Showcase.
- Monster Data.
- Boss Data.
- Treasure Map.
Chrono Trigger NDS: This version includes everything new in the PSX version, and also has big and a long list of changes and additions, which I will try to condense them as much as possible:
- Ability to play using the two screens and the touch screen, or in classic mode through a single screen.
- Added the Arena of Ages: A monster arena where You pick basic monsters and raise them to fight computer and wireless opponents.
- Added the Lost Sanctum: A sidequest during the main game. It consists of two dungeons in two different eras.
- Added the Dimensional Vortex: A extra Dungeon, available after beating the game once and appears in three different eras. Each dungeon is different.
- A lot of New Items.
- New Enemies in the new dungeons, in the form of palette swaps of old enemies.
- One New Ending after finishing the Dimensional Vortex completely.
- New Translation that changes a lot of names form the original version to something more faithful to the Japanese version.
Chrono Trigger iOS & Android: Both versions initially were based on the NDS version, but later on got an update to make them similar to the PC version.
Chrono Trigger PC: Everything on the NDS version is present here except there is No Arena of Ages. What they did add however is:
- Auto-Save feature.
- Higher Resolution Graphics and update UI.
- Support for mouse and keyboard controls.
- Remastered sound and music.
Star Ocean: Second Evolution:
- A New Translation that changes almost everything in the game.
- New voice actors. >* New voiced acted scenes; All major story events now have voice acting.
- New recruitable character: Welch Vineyard.
- New Private Actions and 13 new Endings.
- Unlocking the Galaxy and Universe modes now require defeating a specific number of enemies in a single playthrough rather than unlocking voices in the Voice Collection. >>>* Practically all Combat Skills have been refined, some being removed (such as Cancel, which is now automatically implemented).
- The combat system has been slightly refined, now allowing all melee fighters to perform a 3-hit combo as their normal attack.
- The Super Specialty "Bunny Call" no longer allows the player to "climb" on towns and some terrains. The player now will enter a town upon approaching while in Bunny Form, and can even activate private actions.

It also did not drop to 0 whenever an offensive Special Art was executed, whereas it will do so on the PC.
- Linking additional enemies together does not increase your Battle Rank further than having fought them separately.

- A new tactic, "Direct," has been added to the game, allowing control of the party members, unlike Persona 3 and Persona 3 FES.
- The "Wait" command is replaced with the "Defense" command, and will decrease the damage and any knockdown effects of the next attack the user suffers.

- "Tired" status no longer is inflicted during Tartarus exploration, and is inflicted to all used party members after leaving (this will only drop to "Good" if the character used was at "Great" during exploration).

- The protagonists only have access to one weapon type (instead of having access to all weapon types like in P3 and FES); the male protagonist wields one-handed swords, and the female protagonist wields naginatas. As a result, the Skills "Fist Master," "Bow Master," "1hdSwdMaster" and similar skills have all been combined into a single skill called "Weapons Master." Its skill card is called "Phys Boost," and all Personas which had learned a "master" ability (like Cybele with Bow Master) now learn "Weapons Master."
- Personas now have the ability to produce a Skill Card when raised to a specific level. Each card can be used on any Persona to teach them a skill.
