Flan Prin doesn't really work for me either.

I think Pink Puff is good enough if you can't come to a conclusion on a change you like enough.

The only other things I could come up with are Puddin'/Pudding (like a cute nickname, and it fits), or maybe Flancess. Still, I'd probably stick with Pink Puff at this point, at least it has been used officially.

As of right now I have left it as Pink Puff. It's still a dessert and it's pink. It's an officially used name (even if not modern) and since the official one has NO way to abbreviate it properly it's staying as is. However, it is REALLY easy to change using FF4kster or a HEX editor with a table.

I only suggested Flan Hime and I don't think Flan Prin. works IMO.

You can only save in towns except toward the end. Most dungeons are rather short, however I think you might need savestates if you only have short play sessions.

Not short - my commute is a 40+ minute bus ride in either direction - but it's difficult to time getting back to a town with arrival at my stop. Yeah, might end up with savestates.

Thanks!

I've seen reports that it also works on SNES9x2010, which can be installed on the SNES Mini and RetroPie I think. I believe they may be referring to this version:

https://github.com/libretro/snes9x2010

About how long is the game and how liberal is it in allowing saves? I'm going to be finishing up my current commute games in the next few days and will need something to take their place.

It's not long, even for SNES standards. There's no in-game timer, but I want to say somewhere around 15 hours. It's very linear and quick moving. It has a few experience checkpoints that will boost you if necessary too, so not much grinding.

The number should be blown up to be full-size, and moved to the right of the logo.

These are actually "Dai 3 Ji Super Robot Taisen" and "Dai 4 Ji Super Robot Taisen", literally "The Third Super Robot War" and "The Fourth Super Robot War" but the English colloquialism (supported by SRW4's opening crawl) is that it's just "Super Robot Wars 3/4." We'd get rid of the dai and the ji, so it's just SUPER ROBOT WARS 3/4 along the lines of the title screen for the existing SRW primary canon patches.

Gaming Discussion / SNES mini help, please
« Last post by travel27 on Today at 03:31:04 pm »
I got one yesterday and I want to add more games (that I own) like Chrono Trigger, FF2, DKC 2, Illusion of Gaia, Soulblazer etc. as I am kind of OCD about having backups of my games (saves) (in a way that is doable for me) as much as possible but I do not understand the hakchi instructions.  I keep getting one error in particular, "nes mini not found, sorry" even though I clearly stated to hakchi, upon opening that I am using the USA version of the snes.  I have tried 3 versions of hakchi to no avail.  One version in particular seemed to have a lot going on, that I did not understand, in the command prompt but nada when plugged into the TV.  I tried two different HDMI cables (though I do not think that is the issue) but still getting the same error.  I can add the games on hakchi on my computer but when I sync it asks me for a kernal before, again, saying " "nes mini not found, sorry"  --ugh!

So if anyone has any solid guides, IN LAYMENS TERMS (like an idiots guide, ha) I would absolutely love it, please as many of the guides are like "blah blah blah"/complicated stuff, etc. or just searching on youtube leads down a rabbit hole of poor qualitly tutorials that don't help so, maybe a solid youtube video.

that's pretty neat ^^

i can give a go for the 3 and 4 too if you want, but what exactly do you want to do with the number ?
leave it to the left? move it to the right ? remove the text from above and below it ? (what does it say anyway ? :P)

sans that, i shouldn't have much troubles dealing with the "super robot wars" itself, the bevel here looks like it's easier to replicate too

I've tried it on all versions, sadly it seems retropie users are out of luck.

Implemented (and hotlinked, cuz 16MB gif.) Thanks!

I've uploaded the paletted bitmaps for 3 and 4. These should be easier since the logos are bigger than EX's, and since the digit is really the only difference between the two I've provided the files for both.
SRW 3 paletted tiles
SRW 4 paletted tiles

And the actual titles, for context:
