[HKDrama] My Date With A Vampire 3 (ATV, 2004)

Post by creidesca » Oct 31st, '04, 15:22

Since the "discussion" seems to be going on in the torrent comments of the various epi torrents, I felt creating a topic for the series itself would be easier. Not to mention I can update you guys on the status of the translations/subs.

As I know right now, eltinator is working on ep 1, and should be done soon. I already have lyric translations and have already timed it for the 1st ep and now doing the same for ep 2.

I think I'm planning to release the MDWAV3 hardsubbed, therefore, that means you guys would have to red/l again (and it will be in avi format). I'm mainly doing this because many have complained about the tracker of the mpg being on and have trouble d/ling, so might as well post a hardsubbed version using the d-addicts tracker.

For the sake of their quality, I've been downloading Ep.01, 02 and 03 twice! I don't think it's good idea, encoding MDWAV3 into avi and making everyone re-downloading them again due to the hard-subs! Why don't you just make simple by releasing the soft-sub? Maybe we can save some time and bandwidth for something else? (like re-seeding other series for people out there who've been asking for help!)

We should make a vote for this! But again, thanks for your hard work!

Julian

Not knowing what formats are available except the ones I've been downloading, mpg with Chinese subs, my suggestion would be a good quality avi with soft subs. I'd be willing to download it another time if I could get a good version.

For now I find I cannot watch the mpg files full screen because the quality is not that good. I have not tried buring the mpg to cd-r to watch on TV because I don't think the quality warrents it and it cannot be improved upon as far as I know.

I'm thankful for any version right now so I can watch it, but would eventually like to get a good quality avi or mpg with English subs, or even a commercial version on DVD with removable Chinese and English subs. Might as well hope for the best if I'm wishing .... right? :)

And to put this into perspective, I bought boxsets of Date 1 and 2 without subtitles because I like the series so much. Knowing that English subs might be available for 3 is heaven!

And .... right now I'm seeding 2 and 4, but most of the peers are in Hong Kong and Asia. there is only one peer in USA and a couple in Canada.

Quality not that good? I mean I understand if you were referring to the ep 1-3 that was posted by me, since they were from a different releaser, but the 1's that were posted by bbq (in which the releaser is this 1 person who has encoded their name into the video itself, as can be seen in ep 4-5) are very good. I am able to watch it full screen on my 19" flat screen monitor. I also asked my mom's opinion on the quality, and she says it's very clear.

I've only watched 1-3 and that is what I'm basing my statements on. If the rest are better, well I'm all for it! Like I said, anything at this point is good :roll

And later .... just watched 4 and 5 . I am looking forward to more episodes. The story is unfolding like a puzzle, and it is all the more complicated by the fact I don't speak Cantonese!

Two things, could someone tell me what the note said (end of ep 5) that made everyone dejected? And .... does Tin Yau and Ma Siu Ling ever get to kiss! Dang .... can't believe the writers did this to us.

Three things actually, what is Wan Tin Chiu's character's name in the anciet part of this drama?

lorac, I hope you know there's 2 different versions of the MPG files going around for ep 1-3. The bad quality version (which are posted as torrents at d-addicts), and the good quality version (as good as ep 4-5) that bbq posted in the torrent comments of ep 4.

If I'm not wrong, the letter that had them dejected is because Ngok Fei (that's the general) is being recalled back to the capital. He has been receiving those gold "cards" (there's a better word for this, I just can't think of it at the moment) sent from the emperor demanding he return. I can't recall how many times officials have been sent for him, but you can tell by how many of those "cards" he got. According to what I know, he'll eventually be killed, thanks to one of the officials of the court who I guess you can say concocted the plan and persuaded the emperor to have the general sent home.

I think someone who knows the history better (since the general is a historical figure) can do a better explaination.

Eric's character name in the ancient part of the drama is Jin Tau (anyone want to correct this?)

okay.. my mandarin word recognization is not tht good (i never know how to pronounce tin yau real name ) .. if you are asking abt

if you are asking Wan Tin Chiu (actor' s real name? or aka Eric ) = Tin Yau (charc name)
and Tin Yau's charc name in the song dynasty ..

Tin Yau charc name in song dynasty = Jin Tau (cantonese prononuciation) = Jian Tou(mandarin pronounciation)

hopefully i answered the correct person .. :P
---------
oh.. i also find the first 5 episodes must more confusing than the previous part 1 and part2 stories.. not sure if i am going to enjoy this as much as the first 2 series.. :unsure:

ack, now there's 3 diff versions of the mpg files for 1-3 (and 2 for 4-5) floating on BT! Weird thing is that this 3rd version is smaller in size as compared to the 1st 2 versions...bbq says it's supposedly better? Well, I'll have to see for myself after I finish d/ling this 3rd version (it better not be a waste of my time), especially when ep 6 is supposed to be available soon.

By this character do you mean the Kenneth Chan character, or the guy who became a vampire and in the end of ep 5 was killed by Jin Tau?

I think it was ep 4, when suddenly we were back in current times, was really effective. What a jolt. Here we are watching the myth and suddenly we are seeing what became of some of the characters. This story is so good!

I went to the ATV website yesterday and tried to use babelfish to translate the character names but sometimes it works and sometimes not. It cannot translate Fong Tin Yau correctly. Maybe is could have to do with Cantonese specific characters, as in Wan Tin Chiu's name.

Ngok Fei is portrayed by actor Norman Tsui, the character whom soldiers of the Song dynasty respected/bowed down to, including Eric himself. He is the enemy of Dai Gam Gwok, since he is so successful in battle.

Ah yes, somehow I thought he was the emperior ... think I need a character list to keep them all straight. Anyone got one?

> He is the enemy of Dai Gam Gwok, since he is so successful in battle.

and which character is Dai Gam Gwok?


and for the person who wondered about Wan Tin Chiu is, he is the actor who portrays Fong Tin Yau/JinTau. Also from My Date With a Vampire 1 and 2.

Easy for you to say my dear :roll , but for those of us who don't speak Cantonese or read Chinese ... well, we are sorta stuck right now, especially if we love the series and have to watch it using our intuition.

What is it about this series, or any other for that matter, that is so compelling that we watch it regardless of the language barrier. Thank goodness for fan subbers .... I bow down to all of you.

尹 seems to be one of those characters used in Cantonese ... His name is always spelled Wan and Cantonese people that I know refer to is as Wan ... to me he is just Achiu

Did you also know his name means "blessed by heaven" similar to Tin Yau in Date. A friend in Singapore explained the characters and meaning of Tin Chiu's name, and if I find the text (stuck away on a cd-r somewhere) I'll share it.

I'd just like to say that I'll be timing subs to the mpg episodes released by 丁國燊 (this is the releaser of the individual episodes). EP 4-6 torrents are posted on d-addicts. torrents for EP 1-3 can be found within the torrent comments of EP 04 in a message from bbq. Further torrents to be posted on d-addicts will be from the 丁國燊 release.

I think those are the ones. I made sure the naming convention was the same as 4-6, that is as well as I could reading the Chinese :blink But I will check them again tonight.

I cannot play the files from the (ATV) files. The ones in the 2 gig file. Media Player wants a link to the internet and GSpot cannot open them due to file, directory or syntax errors. Creidesca, how did you open them? The files are the right size and they seem to be complete. What about the text file and internet link in the folder?

I was able to play them fine. Thru the windows explorer I just went to the directory they were in and then right clicked and opened using WMP. I had no problems whatsoever playing the files. Have you tried renaming the files?

Renaming files? .... yes, I tried that too. I tried right click, open in Media Player, open in Explorer, I tried everything. For some reason WMP wants a path to the internet, and I find that sorta strange as the files seem to be complete. Azureus moved it to the completed section.

I'll try again, but since I already have the other files I guess it is no great loss since you said they are no better than the ones you are timing for subs.

Yipee! I see that 7 has been posted ...

Confusing is not the word! Been meaning to ask someone who understands to give up a synopsis of the storyline, how it relates to Date 1 and 2 and especially the connection of Ma Sui Ling and Fong Tin Yau then and now.

I'm curious about Fong Tin Yau. How does Jin Tau relate to Fong Tin Yau and Fong Kwok Wa (is that the right spelling. don't think so). Since he had all the memories of all the past lives of Date 1 and 2 when he was hit on the head, I have to assume he is an incarnation of them.

Can we have a character list with names romanized, Cantonese preferrably?

k....i've been downloading mdwav3 from here and i have done none uploading or anything so i guess my contribution lies in here...explanations

i have been reading ur forums from pg 1 to 3 and found some Q's and that i could give A's

Q; could someone tell me what the note said (end of ep 5) that made everyone dejected?
by lorac

A; well the letter is actually an imperial addict, recalling the general(ngok fei) to return to the capital city. the history says that a corrupt official working for the Jin(tai kam gwok) told the emperor that general ngok was going to overthrow him. and btw those arn't cards..they are gold plates representing imperial powers and general ngok got 12 of them. and btw its history that the general died in prison...forgot with his son or his son suicided...and history does not state that he has a daugher( that's y ma siu ling said she failed her history...for those who understand cantonese)

Q; I'm curious about Fong Tin Yau. How does Jin Tau relate to Fong Tin Yau and Fong Kwok Wa (is that the right spelling. don't think so). Since he had all the memories of all the past lives of Date 1 and 2 when he was hit on the head, I have to assume he is an incarnation of them. by lorac again

A; yes, jin tau reincarnates into fong kwok wa...or fong kwok wa is the reincarnation of jin tau. fong tin yau is the grandson of fong kwok wa in mdwav2, in 1 i forgot...but just took his grandson's identity. mdwav 1 does not relate to mdwav2 and mdwav3 continues mdwav2...

if these info is mistaken correct me...hehe

ooo and pls continue the nice work....and never get a dubbed mandarin into a cantonese series...it actually spoils the whole movie and i guess a lot of people agree with me....and it is not because i don understand mandarin, which i do, but when its dubbed u actually hear words before lips move or vice versa or the lips don match the words....1 sentence its bad........BAD!!!!!!!

i think what he means is, he doesnt like it when you get a cantonese drama & DUB it in mandarin, because the words (mandarin) that comes out & the way the mouth moves (cantonese) doesnt match

at the moment there's only the subbed OP available. Etlinator is still working on translations for ep 01.

And subs are timed to the MPG version, which is in cantonese audio w/ chinese subs

according to bbq, the releaser of the good MPG won't be releasing ep 12 (don't know why), so we'll have to stick w/ this one and hope for the best. Either that or we wait till the end of the week when this other group releases the bulk 11-15 (which is also good quality)

Just finished watching ep11. I feel soooooo sad for you-know-who (for those who have watched it).
I'm happily downloading ep12 now. Thanks creidesca & bbq.:D

subs for 1, that is so cool .... creidesca, your and eltinator are the best! what I've been waiting for. Now I think I will be able to get the story and characters straight ... There are 470 odd seeds for ep 12 and I don't think I've ever seen quite that many. Holy cow (to borrow a phrase from the English translation in Damo!) Date 3 must be popular!

yes, the good version is the 丁國燊, but 丁國燊 not releasing ep 12 (I don't know why), so if we want to get a good MPG version of ep 12, we'll have to wait for this other groups which releases bulk epis (they already released bulks for ep 1-5, and 6-10 already), we just need to wait for this weekend or something for bulk 11-15, and just d/l ep 12.

Oh, ppt, do you think if it's possible for you to help out w/ translating any line that eltinator is having problems w/? That would help a lot.

Well, after watching ep 13 tonight I see I got my wish that the gui hotel would end ... but where in the heck did Pinky come from and I could pose the same question about Tin Yau the vampire. I understood one sentence. Jin Tau telling Siu Ling that he was not Fong Tin Yau. Hum, wonder where this is leading?

My kingdom for subs or an episode guide in English!

who's Pinky?

hmm, Jin Tau telling Siu Lin he's not Tin Yau. maybe he's trying to tell her not to get attracted to him. hehe, but don't quote me.

Pinky is Bat Poh's sister, Mo Lui (Mo Liu?). Pinky is the actress' english stage name.

Someone care to explain why she had purposely hidden that rock or whatever it is?

Pinky Cheung ... Don't know her real chinese name.

My take was that he wants to make sure she realized he is not Tin Yau, and if she is attracted to him it should be for the right reason, not for pining for a lost love ... but then I guess Tin Yau is not really lost. This series really need interpertation!

And was Ng really a vampire! or faking it as he did in Date 2.

for those who want the ssa file of ep 01, done by humbeggar (translations and timing were done by the same person), go to http://centraltracker.org/ (you'll have to register and then you can d/l the torrent. The torrent contains the ssa file and the mpg file. From what I've seen, the timing is a bit bit bit bit off from the good MPG releases we were d/ling? or maybe it's time to the other good MPG release by the group that is releasing it in bulk?

I will still release the version of ep 01 based on eltinator's translations, w/ edits from ppt and mandy

That rock with no patterns on it, she calls it her lucky rock & she will marry whoever that gets it. but bcos she doesnt want to leave her vamp bro, she takes it out everytime they go fortune telling.

in the beginning of ep14? his bro was explaining to Jin Tau why Pinky is 'alive', cos we all know she was stabbed by a vampire in one of the episodes ( i cant remember). then big bro explained the ring that Ye Cha gave him has magic & 'revived' Pinky. however she is more like a zombie bcos she isnt breathing & not growing. so, nope, she's not a vamp

hope it clears some doubts

edit:
opps, i mistook lorac when he said 'Ng'. I thought he was referring to Pinky. silly me....oh well, i 'll juz leave my little explanation abt Pinky.

thanks ppt!

also for those who want to red/l ep 12 (supposedly better than the 1 that was released earlier this week), here is the link for the bulk ep 11-15 MPG (just choose to only d/l ep 12): http://asianfanatics.net/forum/index.ph ... ad&id=3304

I don't know if you need to login at asianfanatics.net to d/l the file or not, but I uploaded the torrent there.

You do need to log in to get the file.

creidesca, can you tell me how the sub files will work with the mpg files before I go downloading any more duplicate files. I guess I could search a forum for the answer, but I figure you know.

(later, just saw your remarks on the ssr file for ep 1)

thanks for that info, every little bit helps in understanding the story. I wonder how many people who dont speak Cantonese or read Chinese watch this series? Can you tell us about Ng's character?

okay, i've uped the torrent for bulk ep 11-15 MPG, here's the link, no need 2 login or anything: http://creidesca.homestead.com/files/AT ... CD.torrent

I'm d/ling ep 12 right now from the bulk 11-15, it's by the same releaser who did ep 1-5 bulk, so i'm assuming the quality should be good. I'll let you guys know when I'm done.

I'm not sure what prog u can use to view the MPG w/ the ssa file, but I'll likely be watching it in either VirtualDub or Subtitle Workshop

Ng is N Tin Lit ... the guy who always ends up with Pinky's character. I think he is also known as Berg Ng. He is an ATV actor, and was also in the Infernal Affairs movie among other things.

I just watched episode 1 with the subtitles and the ssa file works well with this version, timing almost perfect.

永恆國度

Having subs gives new meaning to the story ... Siu Ling went back to the Song Dynasty to find and bring Jin Tau back to 2004 ... for what purpose is not revealed then. The ending credits in the sub file gives the actors names and romanized Chinese.

Thanks to the people responsible for the subtitle file and for those who posted the link here. I really look forward to more.

And creidesca, the ssa file works automatically with the mpg file using Vobsub .. that is after it is renamed to match the mpg.

Ng is a vamp in MDWAV3.
don't know how he turned into one yet, but according to him, he's 'born' with only 1 fang. Pinky thought she hit one of his fangs off. keep watching... :P
read the synopsis at ATV website & if i remember correctly he invented something that make him doesnt need to suck blood

right, that was why he insisted on keeping the night shift when his co-worker asked to exchange shifts. :)

I'm not sure, but when I d/led their bulk ep 1-5, quality was like 丁國燊's yet when I viewed it at full screen, I can see more blocks than I did w/ 丁國燊's so I deleted it. And when I burned off ep 01 from the bulk release as VCD just to see how it would look, I didn't seem to happy. Not to mention the person doesn't have the complete OP for each ep, which is somewhat of a disappointment. I also believe the video screen size of the epis within the bulk release is a bit larger than 丁國燊's ?

I'm sticking w/ 丁國燊's releases and only d/ling from the bulk should 丁國燊 not be able to release any ep.

also for those who want MDWAV2, torrent for ep 1-4 vcd-DAT is being seeded (there's a total of 40 epis), just head over to the asianfanatics.net forum for the torrent file, which can be found in the download section of its forum.

ppt, or anyone that can access the BT Gamesir site (http://bt.tjgame.enorth.com.cn) at about 8AM-9AM, can you please d/l and upload the torrent that is released by 丁國燊's

I'm having problems accessing the site after I ran ad-aware last night, and can't access the site or d/l torrents in which the link given for the torrent is from that site.

If you want, you can d/l the torrent and send it to me zipped at creidesca@yahoo.com and I'll post it up.

The torrent file should likely be available at sometime after 7:30AM-8AM Pacific Time Zone, so please look.

Thank you guys!

Hey for those who actually watch the ends of episode 16, the girl says that the ending will be based on votes in HK...so that means an alternative episode....is it possible to get the alternative as well as the one shown...that is if there is.

pls reply any 1 who can get hold of the original torrents
