That's great to hear!   :woot!:

This is probably my personal most anticipated release in years.

I was thinking about the number of released translations I have to my name, which is currently at 89, and I think I might hit 100 by the end of the year. I have like half a dozen nearly finished translations in the pipeline and certainly more in the works.

Recently, I decided to tackle a new translation of Famicom Wars. It all started when Graphicus randomly showed me a title screen design for the game. It was too big to fit into the ROM, so he did a smaller design and I started hacking the game proper. Not a lot of text and fairly easy to work with. I converted the vertical menu system to display horizontally, which looks much nicer. I will probably do some additional work on the unit names to match the work done on the GB version.




And because I was curious about GB Wars, I hacked that game as well. I'm gonna need a translator to go through all the unit and island names eventually, so that all the terms etc. are consistent across games.




Anyhow, hacking these strategy games has been a change of pace that I've enjoyed so much so that I think I will start hacking some more of these types of games. Fun fact, I randomly imported the Famicom game Cosmic Wars and SD Sengokuden 2 years back. Cosmic Wars looks like a Konami rip-off of Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu and the SD Sengokuden series was the precursor to SD Knight Gundam.

Love that title screen! Previous efforts always seemed to get the size and perspective wrong. This one looks much more accurate.

Any news on Megami Tensei 2's guide translation?

I really can't wait to play Megami Tensei 2 in English...
