I just wanted to let everyone here know that there's an alternative translation available for F-Zero Climax that doesn't freeze unlike the one currently here at RHDN that does so after the first race. Well, here it is:https://github.com/Normmatt/F-Zero-Climax-GBA-Translation
I've already submitted a project page for it here. However, knowing how strict the submission guidelines here are, I'm not 100% sure that it will even be approved which is why I wanted to at least inform all of you here where this translation may be obtained. Just click on the green button that says "Clone or download" then select "save as ZIP" to download the ZIP folder. Make sure to also follow the instructions carefully:
Place the Japanese F-Zero Climax rom inside the rom folder named input.gba and run the build.bat script.
And for those of you curious why I don't have complete confidence in my submission being approved, it's for these two following reasons:
1. For new authors, I added Normmatt, the lead project leader in this case and the first person listed in the credits. The problem with this is that the form asks you to fill in the home URL. I placed the linked above which may not be accepted since it's not his actual website. I don't even think he has one to be honest, but I may be wrong.
2. At least one screenshot is required for submission. The link above did not have any at all, neither did any other place where the translation is available. And not to mention the fact that even if I did find one, it might still be rejected on grounds of "hotlinking". Therefore, I placed a link to the second screenshot of the existing F-Zero Climax translation here at RHDN of the control pad scheme (since it has not changed in this new version).
This translation also had Clank Hughes listed in the credits as with the existing translation here. However, Normmatt is now listed as the lead romhacker in this version. If my submission does by some chance get rejected, anyone who wishes to submit this translation here may do so. I'm getting a bit too tired of tackling the RHDN submission form again and am already quite busy as it is already... But hopefully everything will work out and this won't be necessary.
