I am not dead, in fact I have been working and improving a workflow to insert the new translation into the PSX. Most of the errors and bugs you reported were caused because I was using old and bad tools, but now I use Cebix Tools which are excellent and the resulting ISOs will work on real hardware.
That being said, I am planning to create new patches which will include some nice and new options, like:
Beacause + Chicago font
Beacause + Hard Mode
Beacause + Chicago font + Hard Mode
Beacause Canon Addendum
Beacause Canon Addendum + Chicago font
Beacause Canon Addendum + Hard Mode
Beacause Canon Addendum + Chicago font + Hard Mode
That will imply a lot of work from my side, but I will try my best. It looks like Burnt Lasagna is not active so I will take care of the Canon Addendum from now on. The Chicago font is not an important update, but I really like this font and it's like playing a new game:
Regarding the Hard Mode, I will use this
hack from GalenMyra, who is also inactive but the patch is there and I will implement it to offer a new and challenging playing mode.
What do you think?
