Another new SMB3 Editor

07 July 2019 1:16PM EST - Update by mchlnix

Utilities News - RHDN Project Page

Almost 12 years after the last update to SMB3 Workshop a new Editor emerged with the goal of rising from its ashes.

With permission of the original Workshop creator, Hukka, a reimplementation project grew into a complete new Editor providing several quality of life improvements for Level creation.

These include:

  • selecting and moving of multiple objects at once
  • cut/copy/pasting of objects
  • undo and redo of most manipulations
  • more intuitive level pointer manipulation
  • support for vertical levels
  • instant header editing

and more…

Although not all features of Workshop are implemented yet and some quirks have not yet been fixed, after 5 months of development a beta version of the 1.0 release is available for a wider audience.

Download:

There is a Windows and Linux standalone version available with Mac users having to go the slightly higher effort route of downloading Python and one dependency as described in the Readme of the source code.

Contact:

For enthusiasts who want to follow the releases more closely the GitHub page offers the source code, the newest versions and an issue tracker for bug reports and feature requests.

For direct contact, reach out to Michael on the SMB3 Romhacking Discord

Contributors are also welcome, as Python is easy to pick up, compared to other Programming Languages.

Super Robot Wars 3: Brought Up to Spec

24 June 2019 12:13PM EST - Update by Gideon Zhi

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

It’s been six months to the day since AGTP released the translation patch for Super Robot Wars EX; today, a patch releases for Super Robot Wars 3 that brings it up to the standard set by EX. This is a dramatic improvement over the patch released at the end of 2002 in nearly every sense, technically, linguistically, and aesthetically. The bad names have been fixed, the translation has been doublechecked, and the game has been completely re-hacked from the ground up using the code written for SRW EX.

The new release is complete and should be issue-free; enjoy!

Final Fantasy III English Translation for NES, now 512kb!

24 June 2019 8:34AM EST - Update by Chaos Rush

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Final Fantasy III is a game for the Famicom/NES that never saw release outside of Japan in it’s original form. In 2006, Square Enix remade the game for the Nintendo DS, which was the first time players worldwide were able to experience some form of this game.

This specific translation is actually a ‘do-over’ from a previous attempt in 2016.

Although previous fan-translations of this game exist, they were made before Square’s DS remake. As such, in 2016 Chaos Rush wanted to make a new translation-hack of the original Final Fantasy III for Famicom/NES that aimed to port the script used in the DS remake (when applicable, because the remake alters certain story elements) while retranslating from scratch any parts that were altered in the remake, with the end goal being an English-language version of the original Final Fantasy III with the canon names for characters, spells, items and such. While this initial project was completed, it had its issues: In order to fit the script, Chaos Rush expanded the ROM to 1mb while using a patch that converted the game to use the MMC5 mapper, thinking that there wouldn’t be any issues that stem from it by doing so. Several users pointed out that the RAM configuration used in Final Fantasy III would not have been compatible with the MMC5 mapper to begin with. In addition to that, there were several bugs and crashes that stemmed from the MMC5 mapper conversion, and certain emulators did not support the hack at all. Several users requested that the project be redone in order to keep the 512kb ROM size of the original game and look into ways to compress the script, so that users can finally have a hardware-compatible version of the original Final Fantasy III in English that uses the canon terminology.

With that said, in 2019 Chaos Rush produced a new version of the translation that keeps the game’s original ROM size and mapper configuration. In order to fit the script into the game’s limited space for text, the script had to be redone from the 2016 version, thus a new script was produced that words things as minimally as possible while implementing DTE compression into the game in order to fit as much text as possible within the original ROM size. The new script was produced by comparing the Japanese text from the original Famicom version with the English text from the 2016 translation (which about 75% of was a script port of the DS version), and then coming up with a new line that words things as minimally as possible while getting across the main points expressed in the Japanese script while keeping the “spirit” of the DS script. Thus, it is more or less an abridged version of the script from the 2016 version, but the Japanese text was looked at in both cases. The compressed script takes up 99.97% of the space used by the Japanese version of the game for the text.

Whether you want to call this a translation or an “abridged script port”, either way the end result is an English-language version of Final Fantasy III for the NES that uses the terminology from Square Enix’s remake on the Nintendo DS (and subsequent ports), with a script that provides a similar atmosphere to the remake while also staying true to the original text, all while keeping the same ROM size and mapper configuration as the original game.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 receives translation patch after 19 years of being Japan-exclusive

10 June 2019 9:04AM EST - Update by Cirosan

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Thracia 776, the last entry in the Fire Emblem series that had remained untranslated, has finally received a fan translation patch over 19 years after its release. Initially released for the Nintendo Power download system in Japan, the title also had a limited cartridge run for the SNES.

The patch, dubbed “Project Exile,” is a full translation patch which affects all chapters, all menus, all items, all epilogues, the intro and outro crawl, the world map, and much more. It makes Thracia 776 playable in its entirety, and was created by a team led by Cirosan, using the remnants of Kirb’s patch as a foundation and merging Zane’s menu translation with it (as well as receiving considerable technical advice from him).

In addition, the script has been written from scratch, using a new translation done by Cirosan, the project lead. In the spirit of transparency, complete PDFs of the entire script can be found via a link in the Readme.

Project Exile represents a grand collaboration between many people from across the world, none of whom have ever met in person. The patch team consisted of people from throughout the United States, France, and Austria, who all pooled their expertise and talents to make this patch a reality.
