Today, I present you with the 100% complete Japanese to English translation of the game “Cadillac”.
Cadillac is a puzzle card game featuring several women that try to take every last bit of money from you. The object of the game is to clear all of the cards at the end of the deck, which can be pretty tricky. During the game, you have cards that come down from the top and make their way to the bottom where you position them to make poker combinations, like three of a kind, 4 of a kind, 5 of a kind, flushes and straights. There are 10 levels to beat in this game. Your reward on a few levels is to see a full screen view of one of the women that host the game. This game is a one or two player game.
Steve Martin translated the scripts, so thanks to him!
Pandora's Box 3rd Anniversary
14 February 2009 4:17AM EST - Update by Lenophis
We’re back, and we have news! Pandora’s Box is now in its third year of development. During the past two years, there have been many features implemented. The list includes restoration of the game’s button configuration screen, a music box, Strago learning magic the way he should have, and then some.
We’ve also dabbled into many engine tweaks, the first and most prominent of them being a complete overhaul of the physical damage formula. This change is part of the massive balance overhaul we are still doing. Other engine tweaks include some additions to the battle and engine cores, as well. To get an idea of those changes, you can view the playlist set up at Youtube.
With a balance overhaul also comes many bug fixes, and in fact many bug fixes. To keep some sanity, a complete list of bug fixes was put together at Mnrogar’s Den. These bugs are being fixed to level the playing field on both sides. This will no doubt cause some gripes, but the only thing I can say to that is “if you want to play the broken system, play the broken game.”
But, enough about the past. We’re here to stay positive, and talk about the future. And that future is now. So, what’s new? To mark the occasion, we are proud to show another new feature recently implemented, a Doom Gaze radar (this is 60 megs!). This radar works like how you would expect a radar to work. If you get close to Doom Gaze, he will show up on the minimap. It will make finding him to be much easier than it ever was. Note, a Youtube version of this movie was made, but the quality of it turned out to be bad enough that the minimap was far too grainy to show off what this did. It has since been removed. Various and numerous attempts were also made to get the filesize of this movie down to a respectable level, but all attempts also made the minimap too grainy to show off this new feature.
“Use a screenshot, fool!”
That won’t show you how or when it works, despite anybody’s best efforts to do so. Either bite the bullet and download or simply ignore it. And yes, as a dialup user, this is a very hard thing for me to say, but I’m at wit’s end about this.
Anyway, another new feature, though not nearly as flashy or even as fancy, is one that will make dialogue nice. For whatever reason, Final Fantasy 6 never had a center tag, it instead used a tab tag. Well, we decided that the tab tag needed to go. In its place, a center tag. Ok, crappy job of building that one up.
Those that have been in RHDN’s IRC channel may have noticed me continuously bugging everybody for possible ideas that we could implement into the hack. Gemini did step forward with one, an item that will increase encounter rates. Specifically, this will double the encounter rate. A perfect gift for all of the masochistic grinders out there.
Finally, there’s something we’ve been wanting to show off for a while now. Earlier in development we toyed with changing some of the character spritesheets. One such example was a revision to Mog. We have since expanded on that, giving some alterations to Celes and Edgar.
On a sad note, I am reluctant to announce that I do not believe we’ll be able to get anymore new music into the hack. Those that have assisted in the past seemed to have moved on to bigger and better things. To counter this, some have suggested that we learn the inner workings of the SPC700 to get more songs in. However, we feel that delaying the project for another many months to learn the chip just to get a few more songs in is not worth it.
To wrap this up, I’ll say that we hope that 2009 will be the final year of development. I won’t put a date on when we’ll be done, because adding pressure will not ensure quality. We thank those that have been patient with us during this project’s development.

Welcome to Pia Carrot English Translation Patch Released
08 February 2009 6:50AM EST - Update by filler
It is my sincere pleasure to present to you the complete English translation patch for the PC-FX version of Welcome to Pia Carrot!
This ADV/Dating Sim/Visual Novel style game released back in 1997 is a classic of the genre. You play the day to day events of a high school senior during summer break when he is forced to work in his father’s restaurant due to poor grades. Contrary to your expectations you have the opportunity to meet a number of young women and begin to learn something about work and life in what may turn out to be the most significant summer of your life so far.
The release includes a custom patcher for Windows that can be used to patch a bin/cue style ISO image. It also includes a super cool music dumper.
This patch has not been fully tested but it should be 100% playable. It is a little rough around the edges in a few spots, most notably the extra comics and games you can get, so please keep this in mind. Minor fixes, edits and improvements may be made later but we didn’t want that to get in the way of a playable release. Enjoy!
Star Wars (Namco) 1.0
01 February 2009 8:12AM EST - Update by Gil Galad
Today, I present you with the 100% complete Japanese to English translation of the game “Star Wars (Namco)”. “Star Wars (Namco)” is based on the movie “Star Wars: A New Hope”, with a lot of differences in the game.
The game is a 2D sidescrolling action game and several other missions, such as flying your X-Wing out in space, shooting at Tie Fighters, and the last mission, flying your X-Wing to take out the Death Star. I estimate that you’ll get about 45 minutes of enjoyment out of this game, should you play all the way to the end and beat the game. Probably, the most difficult area to pass in the game would be the first visit to the Death Star, so a map has been provided by bbitmaster to help get to the end.
I’m almost certain that everything has been translated in this game. Honookatana translated the scripts, so thanks to him.

Lazy Shell - The complete SMRPG editor is released!
26 January 2009 1:50PM EST - Update by Darkdata
The editor that has had many people waiting for a long time has finally been released. Over a year in the making the editor allows you to edit the game in a very complete fashion.
It’s learning curve is slightly higher than lunar magic, due to no fault of the authors of the editor, but the complex nature of the game itself.
Also, the first ever level and script hack of SMRPG has been released, it can be downloaded in the editor itself with the patching server function Cirrus. (If you get an error the authors are still trying to fix the bugs with the hack that have popped up over it’s release.)
So check it out, who knows how long till the influx of hacks(bad and good) arrive!
Multiplayer F-Zero Hack
23 January 2009 9:36AM EST - Update by hiroshi
Michael from Sydney, Australia has come up with an ingenious new hack for the SNES F-Zero that gives it multiplayer capabilities. It involves a custom emulator that constantly patches the game with player positions and other data. You can play locally or online with up to four players. Check out the video for a demonstration.
22 January 2009 8:43AM EST - Update by Maximum Potion
Maximum Potion and KZK are proud to present Metroid99! It is a minor hack of the original Metroid on the NES. In the original game, even if you have every energy tank, whenever you load your game you start back at 30 energy with empty energy tanks. In Metroid99, you start off at 99 energy and all of your energy tanks are FULL!
The Most Dangerous Detectives v.1.0
15 January 2009 10:10AM EST - Update by Gil Galad
Today, I present you with the 100% complete Japanese to English translation of the game “Mottomo Abunai Deka”, which has been retitled to be “The Most Dangerous Detectives”. “The Most Dangerous Detectives” is a game similar to Rolling Thunder, with a storyline theme based on the Japanese movie “Mottomo Abunai Deka”.
The game is a 2D 1-2 player side scroller. You the player control Taka or Yuuji, or both of these characters at the same time. You’ll find yourself up against many enemies of the Yakuza gang, “The Silver Stars”, and then later on leading you to corruption within the police department and to the main villain at the end. While playing the game you’ll also run into three mini-games, which are a shooting gallery, a fast paced car ride and a shootout with one of the boss enemies.
