Translations: Vixen 357 is out!
« on: October 03, 2016, 06:10:42 am »

Update By: cccmar

Vixen 357 is now in English for your enjoyment! We believe that it was deserving of a translation patch, as it is definitely one of the better SMD strategy games left in Japan. We hope you will enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed working on it.

We would like to thank all the beta testers and everyone who supported us during the translation process. Well, 'nuff said - have fun!

Congrats to their releases :thumbsup: :beer:

@celcion: A few suggestion, "PUSH START" should be "PRESS START BUTTON" or "PRESS START".

Oops. Thanks. I'll fix that and reupload the patch.

Does the game have multiple endings, as strategy games often do?

If you want it, I recommend playthrough yourselves on GameFAQs.com and also I don't want the game ending spoiled here.

This...is a surprisingly good-looking mega drive game!

If I was more into strategy game, this would be right up my alley

I'm not asking for the ending to be spoiled, I'm asking if the game has more than one ending.

Depends on how you look at it. Let's just say that there are certain variations, but a good chunk of the ending actually stays the same. :)

First of all thanks for putting the hard work in to get this translated, i've been wanting to play this in English for years but for whatever reason I can't start the game, when I press start and select Beginning, the intro plays then goes back to the sega logo, any ideas?

Alrighty, thanks. Does it depend on what characters you have or don't have (like most strategy games), or does it depend on actions taken throughout the game (like taking different paths, or getting an important item)?

It's kinda Fire Emblem-y in that some characters can die permanently. :) The game is actually super linear, there are no branching paths or anything like that.

You need the No-Intro version of a Jap ROM to play this one, this may be the issue here. Also, check if the checksum autofix is on (though this shouldn't be the issue).

Congrats on the translation! More strategy games in English = great!!

On a side note for players, I tried using the "gens" emulator and it wouldn't run full-screen, so I used Regen0972-1831 and it works like a charm. ;D

I have a bug to report, which may / may not be in the original.
In scenario 1, I got to the point where only 2 enemy units remained (on top of 3 mooks on my end, including the commander). During enemy turn, the "enemy troop" attacked Nelson hand-to-hand, but died on Nelson's counter. Poor thing. The game exited from the animation andgot back to the map as usual.
Unfortunately, that's it. The game stayed there for ever, as if not knowing what to do. No death quote. No move from the second enemy (the lead, I think, a green unit for sure). No "player turn" switch.

I've got a state save in that configuration (for Regen0972-1831) if that helps?
