Translations: Lord Monarch [MD] English translation released!
« on: November 19, 2020, 08:16:44 am »

Update By: celcion

Hello everyone!

This time around the authors came up with a project started ages ago by many groups, but never finished. Lord Oddeye and TheMajinZenki started working on it 4-5 years ago, but only now did it come to fruition, thanks to cybermind (a new member of the group).

The game is an RTS by Nihon Falcom. It had plenty of different ports, but generally it could be said that the Mega Drive/Genesis version is the best, due to its great, funny campaign, and all the additional scenarios it offers to the players. In the main campaign the players will control Prince Al, who wants to be acknowledged by his father as a great ruler. On his quest, he's going to meet many interesting characters and will engage in many battles against the forces of evil, but with some twists. Overall, the group considers this game to be very fun, and hopes the players will too!

Once again, thanks to TheMajinZenki for his peerless translation work/translating the manual, Lord Oddeye for the invaluable help with the proofreading/testing the game multiple times and cybermind, as thanks to the hacking prowess of the new member this project was possible.
Enjoy, see you next time!

Congrats! Nice to have someone else do a Mega Drive translation every once in a while ;) Looks slick, so I'm glad you could finally get this released.

Incidentally, I owe some thanks to whichever of the hackers it was that, in the course of working on this, posted a topic on SpritesMind asking about the behavior of SRAM on large Mega Drive ROMs. It ended up being a very helpful reference when I was dealing with the same issue for the Madou Monogatari I translation, so thanks for the (very indirect) assist.

I believe it was Tryphon. I've joined the project in 2020, many years later after he abandoned the project.
