Problems patching Last Armageddon nes
« on: November 13, 2016, 09:13:37 am »
Hi. I'm having problems with the English patch for Last Armageddon on the nes. I got the rom with the correct CRC (CE0CC857) but when I apply the patch using LunarIPS, the rom is still in Japanese (although Lunar says "file patched succesfully").

I've tried several emulators, I've also tried not patching the rom and using the emulator's auto-patch features, but to no avail.

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Quick edit to include the log Lunar IPS creates when patching the rom, in case it may give any hint.

Lunar IPS (LIPS) Version 1.01

Reuploaded the initial patch. It is best to contact the patch author.

I helped chably with a few things so can't say that this covers everything suppose to be included in the last release. Took the original patch and inserted the ending credits from last patch, with corrections. I removed the symbol over the "A" in Appears from battle menu, and I also saw that the "run failed" was missing from battle menu so added that.

Looks like the translation patch was removed from the base of translations. Why? Weak translation quality is the reason? Well, I completed the game using this patch 2 years ago, and it makes understanding much easier anyway. It's not good, but OK. Other weak translations, like Hoshi wo Miru Hito, are still in the base.

I think that's cause no effort was made to do anything about the Google Translate-y nature of the patch. According to the site rules machine translation can be used if you fix the text afterwards. I recall that not being the case here, so that's probably why it was removed. There are a few patches like that, like the old Villgust NES patch for example. Well, maybe someone will make a better patch someday.

I don't think it was necessarily a requirement to fix machine-translated translations. Just state it was a machine-translation. If any "fixing" was required, it was only to at least make it sound like something a human would say or write.
