New English Idom@ster 2 Wiki
« on: January 04, 2012, 01:12:22 pm »
Through a post on the GameFAQs boards I found this Wiki

http://imas2.wota.info/

It seems to be a pretty complete translation of the japanese Wiki minus a lot of the XBox information. I offered the creator my help to add some information from my own experience in the game and got access to edit the wiki, so as a disclaimer, i'm working a bit on it as well. I want to promot this wiki, because a) it's more comfortable to use than the japanese wiki + google translate b) because i don't want the effort the creator made go to waste because nobody knows it and c) as a help to promote Idolm@ster for people who don't understand japanese

Nice find, Naryoril, this will be very helpful. Thanks for sharing!

Just some quick translation nitpicks:

Vice Jupiter should be Weiss (or Weiß) Jupiter
Me Ga Au Shunkan should be Me Ga Au Toki
Training from Hell should be Hell Training
Voltage decay should be Voltage increase

thx for the hints
but where have you found them? I know i'v seen the Vice Jupiter somewhere yesterday and was wondering what is meant, but Weiss makes much more sense (for those who don't speak german: it means "white")

Edit: nevermind, i just noticed where the search function is, i'll just search for the terms and edit them
and another edit: About Me Ga Au Shunkan/Toki, why Toki? When i search the web i see both terms, more of them are Toki. But when i look 瞬間 up in a dictionary it says "shunkan". Does anybody have an idea?

If you've played the older games, Me Ga Au Toki is written as 目が逢う瞬間(とき)(Me Ga Au Shunkan(Toki)). Therefore, it is pronounced and also romanized as Me Ga Au Toki.
Better explanation (For those who understand Japanese terminology): Shunkan has the furigana toki written above it (or to the side in parentheses in the game lyrics), which gives it the pronunciation toki despite it being written as something else. This can be seen in iDOLM@STER 2 with the song Little Match Girl; Heroine is written as Protagonist, with the furigana giving it the pronunciation heroine.

Woooow, thanks a lot for the link, Naryoril! :D This should be a lot of help on top of the other pages I have amassed to get through the game with a high rank.

We restructured the navigation bar just now

just a hint about something i only learned yesterday: if you close a category (for example, many of you won't be interested in Basic Information), it will stay closed the next time you visit, or at least it seems so.

The next projects of stuff which is not on the japanese wiki:
a list of the correct answers for morning greetings
a list of the unit status indicators (wanna dance, infight and so on)
sound files for the songs to show the last appeal opportunity

phew, finally got the song files done. they show the last appeal of a song and are indicaded by the burst sound effect (which is what you should do on that very last appeal)

http://imas2.wota.info/reference/list-of-songs

the DLC songs except Jibun Rest@rt are missing though, simply because i don't have the DLC and i don't intend to spend so much money just to make these sound files

Everything is pretty solid at this point, although I was surprised that the beginner's guide was still in Japanese. Anyone planning to fix that?

apparantely there is someone else (apart from the creator an me) working on the wiki who started with the beginners guide. But as he hasn't done anything for a long time the creator (i think he has an account here, but i don't know the name, so i'll keep him calling that) started doing the beginners guide himself. A few days ago he sent me a first draft to ask for my opinion. I don't know if he's worked on it since then, but it's on the way

Just delete the Japanese text and replace it with "First playthrough: Grind for money.", there's literally nothing better to do for your first run.

I absolutely dig this wiki.  Quite a few things are much clearer after browsing it, so definitely keep up the great work.  I'll be cheerin' for everyone workin' on it!
