Our pleasure!  :thumbsup:

Not having a story is probably the reason this game stayed untranslated for so long, but I certainly feel that it is interesting and qualitative enough to warrant the effort!

We’ve started writing a blog series about the tools we wrote to reverse engineer Super Famicom Wars, by the way. We’ll be targeting another untranslated game – which certainly does not need translation, but we’ll do some more things too, and it’s mostly for tutorial purposes anyway. I’ll surely post links here and start a new thread in the ROM Hacking forum when we’re putting it online.

  I couldn't resist suggesting you guys take a crack at 'treasure conflix' ... such a wonderful and beautiful game needs a translation! :) Love playing SFW, thank you again. treasure conflix!

It is an interesting title, for sure. There hasn’t been much going on with it the last few years, right?

I think the next thing that you might consider doing is a hack to remove the grid lines. I think that the later games proved that there was no need to that ugly UI element :)

Thoughts?

Absolutely! That's one of the "rougher graphics" I've been alluding to tweak for the 20th Anniversary Edition. I've already done some proof of concept with a subset of tiles and it looks pretty nice.

The ironic thing is that the deeper I got into SFW during the final two months or so of hacking, the more I came to enjoy its graphical choices. At this point I vastly prefer its looks over Advance Wars, actually! :D  But still, I think I have a nice set of changes coming up.

   No I don't think so, and because of its more odd release type I think an english translation would offer almost an entirely new game to people. The game is easily one of the best looking games on the entire system ... and after spending weeks tuning and picking on the best games unreleased it was SFW and Treasure Conflix by a mile. If I can help in some way if you guys do take a crack at it, just let me know.
