DMCA used to defend fan translation

19 November 2010 2:18AM EST - Update by D

Other News

I am just passing the word along because this may be useful to fan translators and ROM hackers.

Many people have complained about the www.gamereproductions.com selling their work, so I decided to do something about it. As of today, he is no longer selling Der Langrisser.

I filed a DMCA takedown request with his Web host, after which HostMonster.com disabled his page and contacted him. He removed the Der Langrisser translation from his offerings and the site is back up.

The way I did this was by using a CreativeCommons license that forbids derivative works to license our patch software. This effectively required all users to break the license agreement to use our patch. Therefore, any website hosting or selling a patched Der Langrisser ROM became open to DMCA takedowns from both our team and Extreme Co., Ltd.

I also embedded two of my original font designs in the game in binary, because the US Supreme Court has already ruled that the binary representations of fonts – not their actual appearance – are subject to copyright: this was an ace in the hole in case my CreativeCommons plan failed.

You can find the wording of my takedown request and the logic behind why it works in the attached thread. I hope this will be useful to other fan translators seeking to exercise some control over the sale and distribution of their work.

JMA Archive Unpacker for WinRAR 0.1

15 November 2010 5:53AM EST - Update by mudlord

Utilities News

This is a new format addon for both x86 and x64 versions of WinRAR.

With this, the user is able to unpack JMA archives created by tools like Nach’s SNES ROM utility NSRT with WinRAR itself, so the user does not need to use NSRT to do so.

Only extraction of files is available. Recompression is not possible.

Be sure to read the readme.txt included for more information, including installation instructions.

Thanks to the regulars at #zsnes for thier assistance with testing.

IRC Chat is moving!

07 November 2010 5:13AM EST - Update by DarkSol

Site News

Due to recent and continual net-splits on the DarkMyst network, as the administrator on the IRC side of the house, I am announcing that we are moving the chat to SynIRC where I am currently an IRCop.

There will be a transition period for people to get acclimated to the change of one month. After which, I will be shutting down the channel on DarkMyst.

However, the same rules still apply on SynIRC as they do on DarkMyst.

The IRC staff and I welcome you to join our chatroom and make yourself at home!

A list of the IRC servers in the SynIRC network can be found here.

Completed English translation of Nushi Tsuri Adventure: Kite no Bouken

02 November 2010 9:14PM EST - Update by Jaytheham

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Finally finished after a boat-load of work, a 100% English translation of the fishing RPG Nushi Tsuri Adventure: Kite no Bouken. This is very similar to the other games in the Nushi Tsuri series only with a better(?)/different story, an ocean overworld and a reworked battle system. In true Fishing King style there are a bunch of different fish to catch across a variety of locations, but new in this version, star-gazing, with a multitude of constellations to find, and of course a nefarious plot to take over the world that must be foiled!

While the D-D team is hard at work with Burning Heroes and Chaos Seed, we also took the time to both give feedback to player input and conduct in-house revisions for our Feda: Emblem Of Justice and Slayers projects.

The newest patches include several typographical fixes, expanded character development and other miscellaneous fixes for both games. Make sure to head to the project pages here at RHDN and acquire the freshest patches to get the most enjoyment out of our patches.

Deep Dungeon continued

23 October 2010 7:11PM EST - Update by KingMike

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Today I have released an English translation patch to Deep Dungeon II for the Famicom Disk System, also known as Yuushi no Monshou.

It moves along at a faster pace than the original. New features include the ability to customize your characters stats at level-up, and monsters at a considerably lower experience level than you won’t randomly spawn.

Be sure to read the documentation for important patching details.

Other translations hopefully forthcoming include The Legend of Peach Boy for NES and Nadia for Genesis.

Nekketsu! Street Basket - Go for it, Dunk Heroes

22 October 2010 3:09AM EST - Update by Kunio

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

I came to RHDN to ask someone translate this game for me, but I found it more fun to translate this game by myself! This patch is fully translated and playable. I have a plan to translate this game to my native language (Persian) next.
