Translations: The Black Onyx Twice !
« on: April 14, 2010, 10:26:04 am »

Update By: Ti Dragon

LordKarnov42 has just released 2 translations for the Dungeon RPG "The Black Onyx": one for the PC-88 version, one for the PC-98 version. Pixel lovers, enjoy one of the first Japanese RPGs ever made !

Note: At the moment, there is no patch (they have to be created), but only disk images. Therefore, they cannot be hosted on RHDN at this time.

Hey, these are only v0.99 beta [until someone beats them, so I suppose they're v1.0RC1]  :P
And make sure you create the patch for the PC98 version after you've deleted all of the characters, otherwise the patch will be larger than necessary.
v1.0 will be released as a self-booting disk with a separate character disk, since the only reason it doesn't self-boot is because using it as a character disk overwrites the boot program code.
So in the meantime, you have to put the disk in, reboot, and type
Code: [Select]
LOAD"START" then
Code: [Select]
RUN.

As for the PC88 version, v1.0 will also be released with a separate character disk. As of right now both disks are contained in the same D88 file and split up by the emulator. I don't like that, because I can't have more than one character disk, so I'm going to split them apart. Also if you make a patch, use the PC88mkIISR/V2 version of the game as the base, otherwise, once again, it will be larger than necessary. I haven't done the V1 version yet because it's unnecessary and inferior, but I might.

I'm also working on the PC88 sequel, The Fire Crystal, but can't figure out how to un-write-protect the files.

EDIT: Awesome, one of the screenshots you chose is of a bug I've since fixed  :P [The huge space after "Buy a "]

Oh, update, I'm way past not being able to un-write-protect the files [actually the whole disk was write protected]. So it's moving forward.

Haha. I must admit, I might have been too hasty on this news. I thought it was considered as "complete".
Anyway, take this as a token of my gratitude (c) ;)

Took a little while, but at least the patch got through in the end.
And here it is:

EDIT: By the way, I won't make a patch for the PC-98 version yet. But I will, eventually.
