Hey, isn't Stargazers that game that's famous for being, er, infamously bad?Here's
an article on it. It also links to a patch to desuckify the graphics at the end -- is that patch in the Romhacking.net database? You can get the graphics-fix here
, too; it's "hosimiru.ips". I think, going by what that page says, that that patch also fixes some gameplay things, changing xp values, making useless equipment useful and so on. Is it compatable with this translation?
Hmm, no, it doesn't seem to work at all. Depending on the order I apply them in, it either resets when I try to walk left, or crashes in combat. Oh well.
EDIT: Ok, I think I got it working, but you have to do everything in exactly
the right order. First, expand the rom, then apply the graphics patch, then apply the translation. Any other order seems to make it rapidly crash, but it's been playing all right for a while with that.
I was actually just thinking to myself that I wanted to play Stargazers a while back. Even if it's legendary for being awful, some parts of it do sound original and interesting.
