I decompressed the title screen of Ganbare 2 using my utility. For title screen this game has optimization: you need reorder every 0x10 bytes (you have 00 02 04 06 08 0a 0c 0e 01 03 05 07 09 0b 0d 0f, it must be 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0a 0b 0c 0d 0e 0f).

So I'm guessing the project is still alive? I pray it is so, because playing it on an emulator is a bitch. I want to put this baby on a reproduction cart.

Also, what of 3 and 4?

Yes the project is still alive and most everything is done on my side of things. That would be: Translation, localized graphics for the many in-game signs and the HUD, Title Screen and Game Over screen, the creation of multiple Latin fonts, and all that kind of stuff. I've sent everything over to DDS Translation. At the moment he is wisely focusing his energy exclusively on Tengai Makyou so as not to get bogged down working simultaneously on multiple projects.

Ah, I see. Who is doing 3 and 4, if anybody?

Rai was doing 3 I think, he got pretty far with the hacking already. I'm not sure if anyone's working on 4 atm. Either way, that's some pretty amazing progress! All I could help with is the translation side of things if need be, but I'm sure these games are already in much more capable hands. :)  :thumbsup:

I think he said he was doing 4 too, but we haven't heard from him in a long time, so who knows?

After 2 is released in a year or so, we'll know something about 4.

You only had to read the post above yours, lol (in a year or so, it says).

The translation, font creation and graphics localization are complete, and DDS has already made good progress hacking the game. It should not take as long as what is being estimated here, but the tendency that real life has to blockade or stall hobbies would make a good case against this claim.

Sorry for the delay. I'm almost done with my tasks for the Tengai Makyou Zero project. And then I'll immediately jump back to this project once I'm no longer needed there.

Don't be sorry. I'm looking forward to both goemon and tengai makyou zero, they both deserve to be translated and I'm grateful you're taking the time to work on them :)

Should I wait for the translation release in the near future? I really want to play this game, but I hesitate between using the guide and waiting for the patch.

Best to wait for the translation unless you can understand Japanese very well. Trying to play through a untranslated game using a guide is a bit of a chore, I would only use a guide if the Japanese game was very simplistic, and light on Japanese text.

Ganbare Goemon 2 is very linear and doesn't have much of a language barrier if you just want to finish the game, besides buying a pass for a guarded gate (which you'll probably figure out on your own by accident just shopping for items). But if you want to enjoy the crazy story, cameos, and hidden levels, you'll need a guide or a translation. If you're that impatient go for it.

On the other hand, the language barrier for Ganbare Goemon 3, Ganbare Goemon 4 and Uchu Kaizoku Akokingu is much more steep and hampering enjoyment of the game as you'd probably keep running in circles not too far into each of these games.

It's probably time for an update, so here goes.

I've pretty much managed to convert every graphic texture that Avicalendriya had supplied a substitute for, and have laid out systems for altering the cutscene and dialogue text. Though I do need an updated script and a few more graphics to finish everything up. But all in all, everything is basically done.

Here are some new pictures to show how everything looks so far.

That's really good to hear! Can't wait to play the second installment of Goemon after having played the first one back on the original snes and many more times on emulator.

I really don't know how to say thanks to every one involved in this translation  :thumbsup: :beer:

I'm really happy that 2 is so close to completion, it's a really neat game. :) I believe Rai is working on GG3, not sure how far along he is. GG4 is probably up for grabs. Either way, that's some substantial progress.
