Well, that last text definitely shouldn't be as polite as it was. He's being very slangy, and basically telling him to never come back.

Ha! "GTFO"

Are you sure that warning message isn't just plain text? It doesn't look like graphic titles and that same message and font is used in several other PCE CD games when you don't use the correct system card.

Its a graphic. The font was used in multiple games. Perhaps it was an asset that NEC offered to devs. You know, style sheet type stuff.

Yeah, at first glance it looks like the normal built in system card font. And maybe it was taken from that, but it's definitely not a GETFONT bios call. I already verified it in the ISO as well as the debugger (there are no calls to GETFONT and the block of tiles is loaded directly from the data track into VRAM).

 Also, I found the BAT (tilemap). It's 128x32 and uncompressed. Once it's loaded into vram, it isn't touched after that - so an easy edit for whatever 'bitmap' size we need for the replacement text.

If you want, use a 128x104 bitmap to make the message. Or 16x13 tiles or 20x10 (160x80). Use whatever font you want. I'll handle the conversion and insertion.
Just made one, what do you think?

Based on pemdawg's and DS's translation I reworded it to be shorter and flow better.
I used the same font I used for the title cards, which is called Batang.

The only thing's left now is the ferryman text in stage2' and if anyone is feeling up to it, the credits.
I haven't heard anything from cubanraul regarding the the text for the intro since tomaitheous gave him the reworked text engine.

Also, for the peke title screen I was thinking of just replacing all the graphics for the title screen with just the words "Oops, Wrong Game!!" .
Is there any objections to this? Otherwise I would still need someone to rework the title screen to include the Castlevania part.

I think the line of green text should be shifted up 1 or 2p to be optically centered (assuming that's possible).

I think it would look better if the peke title included the Castlevania part.

Was there a problem with the previous peke title screen mock ups? Size or such? I can rework the SAT is size is a problem.

I resized Vanya's version to fit:


 Though I would have to still modified the SAT since it's 240 pixel instead of the original 224p wide.

I made a post about this awhile back but it's buried now.
here it is...
Quote
On the Peke title screen again...

I dumped the title screen graphic in feidian and the things scrambled up like a jigsaw puzzle.

Vanya's mockup isn't going to fit either, which I already kinda figured.
If someone here wants to make an English peke title screen then here is an organized example I made of how it looks dumped.

It should help with getting the size for everything correct. I'm going with the...

Castlevania
Oops, wrong game!


...Translation.
If some one does make this, post it here and I'll re-scramble everything together and insert it into the game to see how it looks.   
Each character is about 23x32 so Vanya's isn't going to fit unless I severely shrink it. Which will look bad to say the least.

That's what SAT hacking is for ;)



 I'll convert and insert the new palette when I get home later this evening.

The top bar of the T in "This" is shifted right leaving a blank space between it and the left serif.

Nice and big. 8)

Thanks for the heads up. Fixed now.

The only thing left now is the ferryman in stage 2' and the optional credits.
I'll try and get some screens up for the ferryman later today along with the PSP translation for it as well.

I just played Stage 2' today (PSP version) and his two quotes are

"Thy destination awaits."

And after the screen transition:

"Art thou prepared?"
I never wanted to work in a pet shop, you know. I wanted to be...a lumberjack.
