Update By: Pennywise

Work on Mirai Shinwa Jarvas is completed. I would advise to not play it at all. I have other more important matters to discuss. My next patch (Dragon Ball: Dai Maou Fukkatsu) will be released in a couple months at the latest, but there is one tiny detail that is holding it back. There are various small graphics that need english designs. I'm hoping someone talented and clever in graphic design will come to our aid.

Pity Mirai Shinwa Jarvas is apparently no good, since the basic premise seems interesting...

...Why work on a game that you advise everyone to never touch?

I think that's awesome promotion for the game! As a matter of fact, I think I'll give the game a try.

I know, say what you will. I wouldn't have made the news post if I didn't need to spread the word for Dragon Ball.

I'm not judging you, I just don't understand.

Well, it's quite simple. The project was started way back in 2007 when I was first attempting to romhack. I picked the game as a candidate for something I might be able to hack. I don't remember making any progress on it and boom kartes coded a DTE routine for the game. Thus the project was born. So here we are in 2010 with this release of a project that's almost three years old. A bit of a milestone where the past and future collide.

He's translating crap games (as well as some good ones) so others don't have to. :D
(Seriously, though. As games are beginning to be considered a respectable art form, I guess we should be able to experience the monumental-bad as well as the good. I don't know if that's Pennywise' motivation to choose bad games, though.)
I'll have to be careful to make sure I can make an un-fix for any Maka-maka bugs when I get that finished as that's what it became famous for. That can be a tricky thing when making "bad game" patches. Try to improve a game so it's more tolorable to test, or preserve it's bad qualities?
... or maybe I've just watched too much of the Angry Video Game Nerd. ;D
(I know he played a Drac's Night Out repro, but other than that, he only plays legit games.)

Its pretty bad, but more than bad its terrible hard: No health items, hard leveling system, terrible sprite detection, no-sense mele weapons, incredible hard quests ...

Don't know about the drugz? I never used them myself, but I believe they heal you.

Based on the video, I see one thing that was an oversight. I can easily shift those menu's around so that there is space after Fighter. If anyone's brave enough to play the game and find any other errors, I might be inclined to update the patch. Hell, just that one tiny thing makes me want to update the patch.

Oh yeah and as for translating crap games, for sure I can say I worked on at least 3 games I considered to be just awful. At the moment I don't have any crap games in the works. I consider most to be on the decent to good side.
