First Game in Oni Series Translated

24 October 2014 2:29AM EST - Update by Pennywise

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Today we present to you a completed translation of Kininkou Maroku Oni or what we’ve translated as Oni Chronicles -Genesis-. It is is the first game in the Oni series which saw 4 sequels on the GB, 2 on the SNES, 1 on the PSX and 1 on the NDS. In addition to a few novels and an anime series. From all accounts the series was quite popular in Japan, but you should not expect much from the game. It certainly isn’t terrible, but it isn’t great either.

For some background, this translation was started in early 2013 by Pennywise and aishsha. On the hacking side, nothing really noteworthy to comment on other than that the ROM was expanded and items were hacked to be 16 characters. As for the translation, the script was fairly standard with the noteworthy thing being all the Japanese names of towns, skills, and monsters. We localized all the skill names, but we left most of the monster names alone because most of them are various Youkai, Oni and demons in Japanese folklore.

It is also our intention to work on the rest of the Oni series. Oni 2 has already been translated and the main script has been inserted. All that’s left to do is hack in the misc text and begin the testing and revision phase. Oni 3 also has a rough draft translation, but hacking work on that game will begin once 2 is finished.

Lastly, we have many projects in states of near completion that we would like help with in regards to testing and script editing. We would welcome any help from someone with a solid grasp of the English language, grammar and the ability to rewrite or reword sentences as necessary. A good tester is also hard to find these days as well. We’re hoping someone might be able to lend a hand in their spare time.

Lagrange Point Translated, More Than 10 Years in the Making

22 October 2014 5:03PM EST - Update by Gideon Zhi

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Aeon Genesis has, at long last, released their translation patch for the highly-anticipated NES RPG, Lagrange Point, made famous for its inclusion of on-board FM audio. It’s worth noting that this is the eventual end-result of the same translation project started by J2E Translations more than ten years ago; it was handed off to Aeon Genesis after necrosaro left to pursue his doctorate. The translation is complete, fully tested, and hopefully bug-free, so enjoy!

Megami Tensei NES Translation Released

11 October 2014 11:18PM EST - Update by Pennywise

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Megami Tensei in English, finally. Please see the readme for project details. But please be aware that this is more of a beta patch. The project has been in a mostly completed state hacking-wise for a long time now, but the script is not final. Personal life has prevented Tom, the translator, from playing through the game and making his final draft of the script. Don’t bother reporting any typos or grammatical errors, the script is not final.

However, we could use some help in determining whether passwords screw up the game or not and whether this is an issue with the original game, an emulation issue, or a flaw in our work. We would appreciate anyone willing to help in this matter.

We’ve also scanned and translated the original manual. A very talented friend of ours photoshopped in the translation and made a beautiful new manual for us. However, the in-game screenshots still need to be replaced before it is final. For bonus points, we also acquired a 150 page guidebook for the game, scanned it and at one point were going to translate that for players. It’s still a possibility, but we’ll need a translator for it. The whole thing doesn’t have to be translated as there’s probably a few interesting sections.

Anyhow, you’ve been warned. This game is not very good. Play it own discretion.

Amp, What's Up Doc?

03 October 2014 7:37PM EST - Update by Megafield64

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

An all-new romhack of the Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle has been released. This romhack includes two patches, a graphics update and a new set of 64 levels.

Each Looney Tunes character has been edited to resemble his animated counterpart. For example, Sylvester’s fur is black and his nose is now red. The other Sylvesters in the game are now black with different nose colors. In addition to the characters being changed, the pallets of the level backgrounds have been changed to make a more brighter and colorful gaming experience. The graphics patch is compatible with other level romhacks, including Frank Maggiore’s Ultimate Crazy Castles.

The Level set provides a difficult, but not impossible challenge. Each level has been tested to ensure that no level is too difficult. While no level is impossible, there are several levels that require a little more thinking and strategy. The level patch is compatible with other graphic romhacks.

IPS Patch Checker

17 September 2014 8:31PM EST - Update by LocksmithArmy

Utilities News - RHDN Project Page

For all graphics patchers, small hack patchers, or people wanting to use translated patches to try and translate hacks, this new tool will help you decide how compatible the 2 patches are with one another.

Have you ever patched a graphics patch ontop of a hack just to find they mess up the game. This is nolonger an issues. With Patch Checker, you can load up a patch and compare it to another patch to see if they will overwrite the same code.

You will get a report of how compatible they are, 100% compatible means 0 overlaps and they will work perfectly together.

Be careful, the order does matter, patching the graphics patch first means that you may not have any glitches even if you patch you hack on top of it with 97% compatibility. Just some things will get reverted back to their original graphics (3% of things).

It gives you a percentage and you use your judgment on weather you want to proceed. With 97% compatibility and 25000 alterations, a hack would have approximately 750 glitches…

If anyone has resources for other types of patches (UPS or any others) just post links in a comment so they can be incorporated into this tool.

Thanks, enjoy.
