* Referring to the patching process, not the translation process. Actual translation times vary depending on your language. For example, English translation might not start until a day after the release, and is expected to be completed after another 1-2 days after that, if the trial is any indication. Refer to your friendly local translation groups for more information.
Download availability times have been falling like crazy over the last few years.
From the time the convention opened its doors:
(2013, Reitaisai) TH14 trial
(2013, Comiket) TH14 full
(2014, Reitaisai) TH14.3 full
(2015, Reitaisai) TH15 trial
(2015, Comiket) TH15 full
(2017, Reitaisai) TH16 trial

(No dedicated practice stream this time, simply because there isn't a lot to practice for a full version release. There will be a short test stream at a random time before the game, though.)
Three more people will help with the wiki, Skipgame, and hardcoded strings /
Can you still help? Absolutely! In descending order of importance:
scoreth16.datwould help a lot.
Please note that it would only be worth it if you can help us with this within about 1 or 2 hours after we started the patching work. If you can't, just enjoy the game instead. 🙂
Since we've had a trial before, just porting the hacks over will also make the full version content appear immediately in-game as soon as it's on the wiki.(This also applies to endings, which weren't in the trial, but not to Spell Practice.)
The order for the new things will be:
Skipgame, hardcoded strings, the resolution dialog and
Raw text dumps of everything except spell cards will be dropped into the Discord immediately after we get the game, for even speedier translation.
