Please send me a PM if you're interested in testing. I'll likely be reaching out in late March / early April.

I don't know if it's just me, but Magical Vacation has two things that I noticed:

  • The cover art of Magical Vacation is similar to the cover arts of the early GBA/NDS Mana series.
  • The feather cursor also appears in Mother 3. Was this something that Brownie Brown always did with their games?

Posting an update since I haven't for a while.

  • All the text in the game should now be translated (around 250k Japanese characters or roughly 2~3 light novels' worth of text).
  • Lots of bugs have been fixed.
  • I've gotten some useful bug reports from beta testers but could use more testing (again, PM me to help test).

The game is basically in a completely playable state but there are still quite a few spacing / graphical issues I'm aware of that need fixing. I'm planning to publicly release the patch on June 10th, 2016. Over the summer I'll address any remaining bugs and typos people report and then clean up and open source the translation tools / hacking information in late August.

Cool!

Especially the part about releasing your tools and hacking notes. I think the community would benefit greatly if everyone did that.

Yeah, do you think these kinds of tools could be modified to work with the other as yet un-translated into English GBA games?

I'm french and live in France, I'm REALLY happy to know that you're going to translate this game in english, i always wanted to play it since i discovered magical starsign as a child. And i think I am not the only stranger that is waiting for your translation.

PS : Sorry for my english, it's easier to read it than to write it.

Probably because Brownie Brown had ex Squaresoft people working for them.

Probably also because Brownie Brown developed Sword of Mana as well as Heroes of Mana.

^For now, not that much because magicalpatcher said that the patch is complete. He said that he's debugging the patch. Just wait until June 10. (Which is next week! Hooray!)

That said, everyone get hype!

I'm liking the art direction on this one.  It reminds me a bit of Sword of Mana a bit, which Brownie Brown also did.  Is the link cable really required for getting all content in the game?  Reading up, it looks like you can trade spells.
