Anyone like to hack Maison Ikkoku for the Famicom?
« on: January 12, 2017, 01:55:07 am »
Maison Ikkoku was a fun project David and I did for the PCE about 9 years ago. Since I'd love to see all the Famicom games completed, I thought I'd ask if someone wants to handle the technical work for the Famicom version of the game.

Since I've already translated the game, the script portion should go quickly. Please respond or dm me if interested.

Mods, feel free to move this to the appropriate forum. I was told not to make requests for technical help in the help wanted ads.

That's what help wanted ads are for. Whoever rejected it was in the wrong.

I was told this a little over a year ago.

I actually have a project folder for this game with a table, various script dumps etc. Although I recall something was off about the dumps and just now looking through the ROM, I probably never figured out the dictionary compression and so my text dumps are incomplete.

Feel like taking another crack at it? I can check the script that's been dumped if you'd like.

Yeah, I didn't mean to get your hopes up, but I have no interest in working on it right now. Too many projects and not enough time and motivation on my part.

Anyhow, I reckon the hacking of this game is at least an intermediate level project for a good translation. Not easy, but just enough to be a pain in the ass I figure.

Heh, no worries. Thanks for the info. My buddy and I call it TMP. (Time, Motivation, Priority) If it's not high enough, ain't happening. ;)
