Rockboard Translation: COMPLETE!
01 January 2008 9:22AM EST - Update by Dr. Cossack
After several years of efforts, one of the few Mega Man games never available in English has been fully translated: Wily & Light’s Rockboard: That’s Paradise!!
Rockboard is a NES game build around a concept similar to Monopoly: you and a few other players (humans or computers) duke it out to buy lots, build labs and run your opponents into bankruptcy on four game boards. The game was originally released in 1993 in Japan only, and no fan-made translations have been completed until now.
Two patches are available within the same download archive: one keeps the original Japanese names (such as Rockman), while the other brings everything up to date with the North American releases (with Mega Man and friends).
Information, screenshots and the download file are all available on the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack’s Lab.
Staff Note: You can find the translation archived on RHDN here.

An Emerald Dragon News Update!
29 December 2007 4:04PM EST - Update by KingMike
Nightcrawler has updated his page with the progress that has been made on the Emerald Dragon translation beta test!
He has fixed all the bugs reported thus far. One tester has finished the game, the rest have had real-life interruptions. His latest accomplishment was getting the casino mini-games translated, which was a pain since the code was almost completely different from the main game. The estimated patch release date and a few other bits of news can be found at the following link:

PC Engine fans rejoice! Another translation comes your way. This time it’s for BubbleGum Crash on Hucard. A digital comic set around the Crash series, you unravel a series of mysterious bank robbery incidents. One that just might require Nene, Linna, Priss, and Sylia to band the Knight Sabers together again, for one more show down.
Secret of Mana - Hard Mode Hack
26 December 2007 8:30PM EST - Update by sdc
Did you beat Secret of Mana for the umpteenth time again and said to yourself, “Man, that was so damn easy.” Yes? SO DID WE!
For this reason, a fan named “Masterflow” got himself to work editing the game. Enemies are now harder and have more HP, items became more expensive and even some nasty extras were installed. You will hardly play recognition. Towns and palaces which before were very simple will move on to absolute frustration. Are you anxious?
Then fetch the patch at hard-som.de and experience another adventure in the “hard” World of Secret of Mana.

Merry Christmas from Absolute Zero!
We proudly present v1.0 of the Tales of Phantasia PSX translation patch!
All you need to supply is your .bin or .img rip of Tales of Phantasia and the attached custom patcher will take care of the rest. Since it would seem this cannot be overstated, the patched game is fully compatible with real hardware. Please be sure to check the readme, which, among a complete patching procedure and other useful notes, also contains important information regarding emulator and PSP-emulation specific glitches (these are emulator glitches, not patch bugs).

Another big year has gone by for RHDN. With the launch of RHDN 2.0 back in June, community contributions went way up, and our database has grown significantly with the best documents, utilities, translations, hacks, and more for the ROM hacking community. RHDN has continued to succeed, prosper, and become ever more popular as the central hub of ROM hacking for ROM hackers and community supporters all across the globe.
Never before has such a global force of talented ROM hackers been assembled. We’ve got ROM hackers from most major countries around the world. Our forums are full of some of the brightest and most talented ROM hackers around the world exchanging help and information to keep the community strong, healthy, and growing! It’s really the ‘globalization’ of RHDN that was the biggest surprise to me for year 2.
This past year, RHDN has really started to meet many of it’s primary goals. The vision I had for RHDN is slowly becoming reality. But as far as we have come, there’s always plenty more road to travel. Site development will continue into 2008 as additional features, capabilities, and content will surely find a home on RHDN.
Another year, and another big ‘Thank You’ goes out to our hard working staff and all of you around the world that have contributed to our community. Everybody’s contribution counts. It will continue to take the efforts of all of us for RHDN to continue to grow, be kept up to date, and continue to be the best resource, social hub, and community tool available to us all.
This is our site. It’s user maintained. We all keep it’s heart pumping. As I said last year, as long as the community lives, so shall ROMhacking.net!
KH 2 Re: Chain Of Memories Partial Translation Released!
24 December 2007 1:39PM EST - Update by saito
Here comes a partial translation for this Ps2 game. This incredible remake needed some sort of translation to make it at least “playable”.
However, this partial patch has its limitations. Here is a brief list of the messages and menus that this patch covers:
- Game menu “Deck menu options and features”
- Some system messages “Mostly save and load menu,and other miscellaneus messages”
- Cards Names “All kind of cards: world,abilities and items”
- Location display
- Level up screen
- Skills display (dual/triple) in combat
Note: The game locks up in pcsx2 and do not display the font characters correctly, but on the real hardware it does ;)
Please check out the Readme.txt file for more information.
Have a Merry Gaming Christmas!

23 December 2007 4:09PM EST - Update by The $ Avenger
This Genesis classic has long gone under-appreciated, and finally it gets the updates it deserves! The $ Avenger is proud to announce two hacks built off this fantastic RPG title: Numan Revolution and Evil Overload.
Numan Revolution retells the story of Algo’s second chapter with a nearly entirely different storyline, comprehensive edits to all eight playable characters, a complete overhaul of monster statistics to ease the difficulty of this legendarily difficult title, a completely changed equipment database, recolored monsters, and a couple of Easter Eggs, including the one wish of all Phantasy Star II veterans!
Evil Overload has all the changes of Numan Revolution with a difficulty increase for the player seeking an extreme challenge!
Are you ready for an all new adventure in Algo? Come join the Numan Revolution and watch out for Evil Overload!
Legend of Cao Cao translation release!
23 December 2007 10:34AM EST - Update by Terranigma Freak
It’s been a long time coming, rejoice, all… 3 or 4 of you who know of this game! The first 100% beta release of Koei’s spin off Strategy RPG series Legend of Cao Cao is complete. You can grab the translation either here or here. The translation section of romhacking.net contains some bigger and better looking screens for you to see.
There will be more revisions coming that’ll fix whatever errors that remain in this release. Also, Lady Wu was unable to fix the character limitation in the game, so when you deploy characters, those with the longer names might vanish or overlap with another name. If you know how to fix it, please contact Lady Wu over at kongming.net.
The game is the third game in a series of ROTK based Strategy RPGs. All of them were on PC (but the first one was also on SNES), and never released in America. Very few people have heard of them, and fewer have played it. If you’re a fan of Fire Emblem style Strategy RPG, then you should definitely give this game a try. If you’re a fan of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, you should also give it a try. The game clocks at around 50 hours, two alternate paths (50 hours each path), 60 different secret weapons, cinematic duels that took place in the novel to find, and secret maps and characters to discover.
If you have any problems with playing the game, you can ask us over at the forums here. We will gladly answer any questions you have about the game.
