Iriez Welcome to ROMHacking.net. It's just about the most toxic community out there.
I'd really love to help but I just can't make these kinds of commitments anymore. I do a bad enough job of keeping this site going, and that's really only because 10 years of trying to get it into more capable hands failed.
Honestly saying, $200 is kind of low and that's probably why they were insulted. It's a lot of money for you, but it's not a lot of money for the guy doing months and months of work on a game he probably doesn't like that much, since if he liked it that much he would be doing it for free.
It would be ideal if things like this could be crowd funded or supported with something like Patreon, but the illegality of hacking and translating a game makes it impossible.
We actually talked with Extreme Inc. back in the day about legally translating Der Langrisser, but they wanted $5,000 for the IP plus a $20,000 guarantee, and then ongoing royalties. That would mean selling more than 3,300 copies of the game at $9.99 to even cover the costs of licensing and the Steam/Amazon/Google cut, let alone turning a profit. The Der Langrisser fan base just isn't big enough to make that a gamble anyone would take...
