Aeon Genesis has released a translation patch for Esper Dream 2, an NES action/rpg by Konami which is powered by the VRC6 mapper for better sound and music! There are no known issues with the patch, so share and enjoy!
Other updates include the following:
- Actraiser’s text is mostly translated and inserted. Menu stuff remains.
- Snoopy Concert’s dialogue has been formatted, inserted, and lightly polished for context and content. Playtesting is likely imminent.
- The Madara betatest continues.
- Dragon Squadron Danzarb’s dialogue has been fully translated! Some miscellaneous text remains undumped and untranslated, but should not take long.

Fire Emblem 5 Progress Patch Released!
12 September 2006 7:27AM EST - Update by FEF
A new patch for Fire Emblem 5 for the SNES (aka Thracia 776) has been released! The patch is based off of the Thracia 776 ROM Translation Project made by neonclover which is now “on hiatus.” The patch translates up to Chapter 19 story wise, and has most of the menu/skill/character name stuff translated as well. If you plan on trying to play through with the patch, please read the readme as there are a few areas that help in beta testing is needed.
Updates to this patch as well as a list of what has been completed thus far are kept in a messageboard thread linked to below on the Fire Emblem fan boards.

Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles
06 September 2006 10:08PM EST - Update by Ok Impala!
Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles was (besides several Dutch translations) the first ROM hack released by Ok Impala! in 2002 and is still enjoyed by many Super Mario Kart fans world-wide!
Super Mario Kart - The Impala Battles is a hack of Super Mario Kart in which the four battle tracks have been completely changed.

Segagaga fan translation in the works
27 August 2006 3:30AM EST - Update by Shih Tzu
I saw this over at GameSetWatch: Apparently, a guy (who also runs a game-industry translation outfit) is working on producing a fan translation of Segagaga, that wacky Dreamcast game-industry sim where you take the reins of the ailing Sega corporation and band together with famous company mascots to demolish all rivals and put the house that Sonic built back on top. Just like real life! Oh, wait. Anyway, it looks like possibly the nerdiest game ever and must have been lots of fun to make.
As for the translation, while it looks like there are still lots of hacking issues to be resolved, the writing in the first preliminary screens is looking quite good. Let’s just hope the translators are savvy enough to catch the many, many Sega references in the game (the fact that the producer doesn’t even know who “Alisa” is worries me somewhat, but he also mentions that he’s seeking a lot of help from more versed fans, so that’s promising).
More info and screens at the producer’s 1up blog.
Nightwolve releases Ys Typing Tutor Game
17 August 2006 9:29AM EST - Update by Princeleaf
A long long time ago, when I was working on the now defunct Zwei!! project, I discovered it had two special mini-games that become accessible only after certain events are completed. One game is a tetris clone that I don’t care too much for, the other is this typing tutor game, referred to by Falcom as “Typing of Ys.” Years later, I thought it would be nice to separate this game out of Zwei!! to make it available for everyone after someone brought it up in a messageboard forum I visit. So here you go! I was hoping to get Deuce to translate all the Romanji, but that never panned out so I’ve released all existing work that was done. You can play with the text files in the data folder and save whatever words you’d like the game to use yourself, if you wish.
- NightWolve, Deuce & team
Another Dragonball Z Game Sees English Translation!
11 August 2006 12:33PM EST - Update by RedComet
That’s right, we’ve done it again - a DBZ translation is seen through to completion! There’s not much to say, really. This patch is the result of well over a year of work and, hopefully, it shows.
I’ve made some headway with a couple of other projects on my plate, but more on that at the site!
Check it out!
