Congratulations on completing Aighina! It looks great. I continue to admire and appreciate all your hard work on this worthy project.
I would've posted it here already, but I was actually waiting for the 7-day double-post limit to expire.
So yes, I've finished Aighina's Prophecy, and I hope you all give it a try because I think I did a pretty good job on it.
And it's a fun game, too, of course.
Meanwhile I've been busy with other projects. I tried to change the title screen on the Japanese Puss In Boots game, replacing it with the US one, but alas, there are 19 tiles too many to fit in the ROM.
Now I'm not sure what to do: make a new title, or work on the US one and try to squeeze it in. Tricky.
So I then moved on to Mahjong, which seemed to be going smoothly because there isn't much text really, but then I encountered the list of winning hands. At least a couple of dozen of them, and now I think I'll need to just replace the katakana set with a Romaji set (two letter per 8x8 tile) because I don't see any other way of fitting all those names in. I suppose I could just do the ones I really need. We'll see.
If I can get both these games done, the list looks a lot nicer. I had a play of the other untranslated games on my list.
Toki no Tabibito - Time Stranger seems like just a simple choose-your-own-adventure type deal, with the only options being "yes" and "no". So it's more of a translation issue than a hack issue: I don't think there will be much hacking to do, although DTE would probably help.
Mississippi Satsujin Jiken seems a bit annoying to play, for me anyway. Of course it was released on the C64, just like Aighina. Not exactly looking forward to this one.
Hon Shougi - Naitou 9 Dan Shougi Hiden seems like it'd be relatively straightfoward, being another board game. I'll take a look after Mahjong and Puss In Boots.
I haven't had much of a look at Seikima II - Akuma no Gyakushuu, Sherlock Holmes - Hakushaku Reijou Yuukai Jiken or Space Hunter, because someone mentioned in this thread that they were being worked on. Is that still the case? Any updates?
So, in summary, things are progressing nicely, but who knows how long it'll last (I do have a tendency to go through moods of doing different things in my spare time, and right now it's ROM hacking
