Shiren the Wanderer is a roguelike, and is rather difficult. Do not expect an easy ride! Translation is complete, have fun.

Other news include a project announcement for Metal Max Returns, updates for Dark Lord, Treasure of the Rudras, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, as well as a teaser line for a Windows game called Guardian of Paradise (Rakuen no Guardian.)

Great! Thank you!

I've bought the Japanese Game last year and I never came out of the first town because of this stupid "character switch" thing. ::) Now I can understand the game and switch characters.

Well if he said it doesn't work I assume it doesn't. If it's a header problem you are having open up the rom in a hex editor and delete the first 0x200 blocks. Then apply ips and it works fine.

Or use "SNESTool" from the Utilities Page to delete the header, after that the game runs great!

First I had a ROM with the ending "fig". With that the patch doesn't work. Try to find one with "smc" ending.

Sorry for my English!

Thanks to KaOSoFT for noticing this and letting us know.

i dont know if its right. i used the 1.1. version and patched it with ips tool. everything was perfect! but i failed to patch version 1.0. the roms are from www.emu-russia.km.ru. so its the other way around in my case.

That's some good news. I played the Torneko game in the same series prior to DQ8 coming out, thought it was pretty cool but felt incomplete. I just needed a more epic goal I guess. It was nice to be able to keep playing once you had finished the game, but the secret bonus dungeon was virtually impossible since there was no way to progress in it, since you couldn't take any items with you in and out of it, unlike the regular dungeon. I even went to the trouble of going to level 99 of the regular dungeon, and found some scroll that basically congratulated me but didn't seem to do anything. From what I've heard of Shiren though, it seems like much more developped, large and complete than the first Torneko dungeon crawler...

Have you removed the header? Read the readme.txt from the patch! The File must be 4,194,304 bytes big, after the removal of the header.

If you remove the header on 1.0 and you patch it and it doesn't work then you have a bad rom period. There is a bad dump of 1.0 out there. Get the good one here.

The board worked fine on my browser.

I havn't had a header problem.  What I do is go to many different sites and download the same game and keep trying over and over again.  I tried to use SNEStool but then it gives me this crap about "OOOOHHH no proper MD-so whatever prompt crap *pht*"

Probably some setting on my computer or whatever since it's been known to work on Xp but whatever.

Eitherway i'm having fun with the game so far and I've gotten to the 13th level at the highest so far and got a nice traveling partner with me.  Though those damn fire preists keep ruining my junk and "Whupping me good"

For emulation  patching purposes, you can simply insert 0x200 bytes of 00's or anything you want at the beginning of the file.  BAM.. there's your header.

If you need to get rid of a header.  Delete the first 0x200 bytes.

That's all there is to it.  Headers mean nothing to emulators.

That's what I was trying to tell them. Using this out of date snestool crap is crippling them. They should just open up a hex editor and delete the header manually. If for some strange reason you want a header. (The only reason I can think of is for a copier) Then create one with a program. I'm gonna take a guess that over 99% of people here except for the asm gurus don't have copiers.
