Revision 4 (along with Beta 3 of the program) should be ready on either Monday or Tuesday. (GMT-6)
Actually, I just updated the first post with a link to Romajifier48 Version 1.0 w/ Revision #4 of the KeyFile. There is a Change Log for the program included, as well as revision notes in the KeyFile that show up on the About screen, but I'll list the changes here as well.Version 1.0 of the program:
ADDED: Double clicking on the tray icon opens the Options screen.
ADDED: Separator for multiple nicknames is now configurable on the Options screen. [So, now you're not stuck with only a comma separating the nicknames for a girl. I thought since everything else in the tooltip was configurable, it would make sense for this to be as well.]
ADDED: Hitting CTRL+C while the tooltip is showing will copy the contents of the tooltip to the clipboard. [I haven't actually used this, except for testing it out, but it seemed like a handy thing to be able to do at some point.]
ADDED: Romajifier48 will now recognize Kanji with spaces in it. (Leading, trailing, between Family and Given names, etc.) [I've run across the spaces between Family and Given names thing a lot over the last few days, so this was a must for a final version.]
ADDED: $0 will add the original Kanji to the tooltip. (Not actually listed on Options screen) [I threw this in pretty much as an after thought, but just like the CTRL+C thing, I thought it might be useful to somebody, someday.]
CHANGED: The Options screen was modified - besides adding the option for Nickname Separator - to minimize the amount of empty space.
CHANGED: The link to the JPHiP Forums on the About screen, now points directly to the AKBar48. [ Here
to be precise]
ADDED: The About screen now also has a link to the Romajifier48 thread at the JPHiP forums. [That would be this thread, of course]
FIXED: If the Options or About screens were opened while a tooltip was showing, they would disappear when the tooltip did.
CHANGED: The About screen no longer shows when the program is first run, there is now a Welcome screen with the choice to open the About and Options screens. [If you are upgrading, and you want to see this, you can just delete the Romajifier48.ini file - though that will also reset you to the default options at first.]Revision #4 of the Girls.48 Keyfile:
Added all currently active members of SDN48, Nogizaka46 (N46), all Graduated members of all groups, and Akimoto Yasushi (he has a thread in the girl's threads subforums, so why not.
Here are some more detailed notes on the KeyFile than what you'll actually find on the About screen itself:About SDN48.
The members list on the official site
does not group the members into any teams or Kenkyuusei, only by generations. Therefore, the "teams" of SDN48 are listed as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd - according to generations.
Also, several of the SDN48 members use a single name as their name. In those cases that name was listed as their Given name, and Family name was left blank. The two whose stage name is already in Romaji (KONAN and miray), are listed as such. Chen Qu and Siyeon, who are Chinese and Korean respectively, have their names listed in Katakana. Chen Qu has her entire name listed as her Given name so that there's no way she'll come out as "Qu Chen".About Nogizaka46.
Until it is certain how N46 is organized, all the members are listed as being in "Team" 1st, similarly to SDN48.
While searching for information, I found this post
which states several things affecting the KeyFile:
1. Akimoto Manatsu is concentrating on her studies, and not participating in N46 activities for now. She might return later, but until then she is marked as "Graduated"
2. Yoshimoto Sayaka & Yamamoto Honoka have graduated.
3. I'll just quote this one:
It was confirmed that Asou Ririko (16) and Kawai Hina (13) subscribed for the auditions with their artistic/stage names (you can see here, in one of my previous posts, that these two were in a Kyuushuu regional group witharound50 girls,named Seishun Joshi Gakuen). Since there wasn't any specification about that in the application rules, there's actually no problem concerning this fact. Neverthless, since all members in 乃 木坂46 are using their real names, Asou Ririko and Kawai Hina will be using their real names from now on:
麻生梨里子 (Asou Ririko) → 能條愛未 (Noujou Ami)
川相陽菜 (Kawai Hina) → 川後陽菜 (Kawago Hina)
This was probably the strangest thing I ran into while making the KeyFile. I decided to put all four of the Kanji names into the KeyFile but the names the girls originally went by have their real names for their Family and Given names, and the actual translation of the Kanji in their Nicknames. The Kanji for the real names don't reference the original names they went by at all.
The Nicknames for all the remaining girls came from this post
in that same thread.About Graduated Members.
For the sake of completeness, I was actually considering having a separate category for rejected Kenkyuusei, but following that train of thought would lead to categories for fired and resigned members as well. In light of recent events, I abandoned that idea. Besides, they are all in the graduated girls subforum here anyway.
Well, I was about to say that Revision #5 would be done as soon as the 13th Generation Kenkyuusei nicknames were posted on the main site; but I checked and there they are. So give me just a few minutes and I'll swap out the link again.
Edit: And it's done, Revision #5 is up. I swear those nicknames weren't there yet just a day or two ago. Anyway, Revision #5 (and #4) has 378 entries, whereas #s 1, 2, and 3 only had 230 entries.
TL;DR Version 1.0 of the program is up, along with the most complete and up-to-date revision yet. Get it in the first post, or right here
if you don't feel like scrolling up.
