I saw your stream the other day and I was thinking about ways to improve the music, since it's really high pitched and annoying. I assume that's because it was made to be heard through the GB speakers, so is it possible to pitch it an octave down? That way the music is basically the same, it actually sounds very similar to Link's Awakening, and it doesn't destroy your ears xD

The music in Frogs isn't that bad at all, I think. Certainly not as high as the Game Boy Mega Man II. Why would you take a perfectly good soundtrack and then make it so high-pitched it's only audible to dogs?

A full octave would sound like ass if it's even doable, transpose it down one note at most or just edit the "bell" instrument. To me it's fine as is though.

Thank you, guys  :beer:

There are a couple of streams on my Youtube channel if you want to see a bit more of the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc5XlO7m5eM

Bonkers!

Always thought this looked better than the font used in the final version of the English translation.



Any chance of an optional patch after/with the release of the colour hack?

^I do like that^

Watched a bit of your streams and it looks amazing Toruzz. I stopped playing the original translated version about halfway through because yours looks too good. Its worth waiting for :3

I also think that one looks way better, but choosing that font is not up to me. I'm rethinking everything related to this hack, so I'm still unsure about what I'll do to maintain compatibility with the English translation.

Please Toruzz, don't let this hack to die. I saw the work in progress and its wonderfull.
The color hacks you make are something this community really needs. There are a lot of amazing old games that need more love, and this is the prime example.

Please, take your time, but continue with this hack, i know a lot of players waiting to play the game in full color glory.

Sorry if i sound a little rude, but after seeing no update since may, i get a little worried about this hack.

I hope you can have the sufficient time to work in it.

Have a nice day!

Pretty sure he gets crazy busy at times. He's said before this is his masterwork so he's making sure to take it slow and do the best job he can. Super Mario Land 2 was certainly a large side project after all. That said, I got super excited when I saw a reply to this thread. I thought there was an update XD One day <3

Thanks guys, I'm really glad to see that you are still interested in this.

What Shade Aurion said is absolutely correct. I'm currently finishing my finals and working full time, so as you may expect I don't have a lot of free time. I know it's taking me forever, but I never stopped working on this project and I'll definitely work on it until it's done.

I've already posted this on twitter, but here are some places I've already shown with updated colors:

Oooh this looks awesome man. I was nearly about to send a 'what happened to this this isn't dead right' message myself but I managed to keep myself in. Seems patience gets rewarded  :o
