@KingMike: I was adding some of the translation in from the abandoned project files, but I'm no where near 99% so that would be awesome! If you want the title screen to read differently, let me know. I also fixed, maybe not fixed, but made it look better to me, the password screen. I'll upload a pic tomorrow. If you haven't worked on that already, maybe mine will work.
I was eventually going to fix that with the next patch update planned along with the other minor issues in the translation. I'll get around to it eventually perhaps with the next Jajamaru release we do...
Cool! I have Jajamaru Ninpouchou so I hope it's that one.
The above is the compressed script from game. If you can translate everything I can help you reinsert it. I think each line can be up 22 tiles wide. The more short and concise you keep it the more likely it will all fit.
The way I see it, there are two ways I might finish this game. The first and simplest way is a cheat code to give you the gold tap.
Bonus Level: As you may know, there is a problem in the level, "Fat Bear Mountan". It is impossable to get the souvenir on this level due to a manufacturing error. You can see it, but can't get it; you just walk through it. To solve this, go to the starting screen where all the levels to pick from are (it is in a big circle). When you're there press Down, Up, Z, L, Down, Left, Z, Down on controller 1. This will give you the bonus asteroid level that you would get if you were to collect all of the souvenirs.
Doesn't give you the gold tap but gives you the benifit of getting it and getting 100% by letting you play bonus level. I know... not exactly what you're looking for.
