Phantasy Star Generation 4 - A Relocalization & Retranslation

25 October 2018 7:34AM EST - Update by GhaleonUnlimited

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

One of the 16-bit era’s hall-of-fame RPGs has received a Phantastic makeover!

Phantasy Star IV was one of SEGA’s best RPGs, with great story, character interaction, and gameplay, but the English translation was merely adequate. It suffered from awkward, often laughable dialog, as well as many mistranslations that were meant to tie the 2,000-year-long story of the previous three games together.

Among the goofiest translation choices:

  • Misnaming the planet “Palma” to “Parma”, which is a suburb of Cleveland.
  • The main character yelling “I’m not going to fight for no mission!” at a pivotal story moment.
  • An emotional goodbye between bros punctuated with “You silly!”

And so on.

The patch author, Chris Hatala – “GhaleonUnlimited”, was surprised that a Phantasy Star IV hack fixing the series references was never tackled, so he decided to learn what ROM hacking was all about.

Thanks to the help and support of two other fan-project leaders – vivify93 and lory1990 on RHDN – Chris was able to completely rewrite the script where needed and inject it into the game, along with adding bugfixes, fixing censorship, and allowing for player preference in which script they wanted to play.

Also, thanks to their help and also great resources online, the original Japanese was used to best match the original creators’ intentions.

Being a big fan of the breezy dialog and whimsical nature of the Lunars on SEGA CD, Chris aimed to add a naturalness to the dialog, as well as accentuate each character’s personality.

He also added humor that was appropriate to the established universe and tone of the game, because much of the game’s funnier moments were lost in translation or were simply missed opportunities in the original script.

Now that English fan translations of the brilliant SEGA AGES remakes of Phantasy Star 1 and 2 have been completed, this project was meant to link both both the classic translations together but also these new exciting developments in the Phantasy Star world.

At version 1_48, most of the text errors and bugs should be fixed. The author hopes that this relocalization will give 16-bit RPG fans who missed out on PSIV – as well as long-time PS fans – a reason to revisit one of classic gaming’s best RPG story arcs!

7th Dragon 2020-II Translation Released

24 October 2018 7:57AM EST - Update by Pokeytax

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Geoff Embree has completed an English translation of 7th Dragon 2020-II for PSP. With the official localization of 7th Dragon III: Code VFD last year, the entire 7th Dragon series is now playable in English.

7th Dragon 2020-II is a direct sequel to 7th Dragon 2020. It expands the classes previously introduced, adds the new Idol class, and further develops the cast of the previous game, nearly all of whom return. On the production side, Kazuya Niinou steps aside as director for Dai Oba, while producer Rieko Kodama (Phantasy Star, Skies of Arcadia), and composer Yuzo Kushiro (Streets of Rage, Etrian Odyssey) continue their work on the series.

It is recommended that players complete 7th Dragon 2020 before playing.

Comprehensive NBA Jam TE Romhacking Document Released!

18 October 2018 9:27PM EST - Update by eskayelle

Documents News - RHDN Project Page

Fresh off of releasing his NBA Jam TE - Double Z Mod romhack of an SNES classic basketball / beat-em-up extravaganza, eskayelle has released his Hacking NBA Jam TE: A Beginner’s Guide document.

An aggregation of everything eskayelle researched and learned while modding the game, the document purports to provide guidance on everything from modding court and uniform colors, to injecting PAR codes into players, to modding stats and graphics, and more!

While eskayelle’s goal is to generate interest in NBA Jam: Tournament Edition, and more hacks of it, he admits to two alterior motives:

  • The hope that hackers may find the document useful enough that they consider annual roster updates to the game.
  • The hope that experienced hackers may find the document interesting enough that they may want to pitch in with some guidance on sound hacking.

For those of you interested in digging into some fun, smash-mouth, 2-on-2 basketball, please pick up a copy of a document (and perhaps the Double Z Mod patch) today!

TransCorp Releases 'Angelic' Tenshi No Uta English Translation!

14 October 2018 12:33PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Rejoice once more! News has come from Nightcrawler’s Translation Corporation! The Song of the Angel English translation has been released! This is a milestone in the fan translation community as it is the first introduction of the Tenshi No Uta series to English audiences. Fans of Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean will be happy to know the game shares many of the same developers known as the ‘Wolf Team’, as well as sharing the main musical composer too! As a result, Song of the Angel is a very charming game with a great soundtrack. The atmosphere will certainly feel familiar.

Nightcrawler made every effort to ensure the hacking work is amongst the best seen on the SNES platform. Nearly everything was expanded and proportional font deployed throughout all dialog and menus. The result ensures the dialog was uncompromised, and menus are up to standards set on future generation consoles. As an added bonus, a number of original game bugs were fixed too! Liana of Metal Max Returns fame did the translation work. So, you can expect to experience a well written translation to convey the aforementioned charm of the original game.

For those not familiar with the game, Song of the Angel is a love story at its core. It blends together a tale of love, angels, demons, and even Satan himself! Gameplay is typical 1994 RPG fare with the addition of a Parley negotiation system. You’ll meet a wide cast of characters including old friends, new friends, a tyrannical count, a soothsayer, and more. You will walk, teleport, sail, and fly by the time your adventure concludes.

Some further details are available in the readme file for those of you interested in more about the project and game. For the rest of you in a hurry to get things done, go start playing!

Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition Released

04 October 2018 7:18AM EST - Update by Q

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Nearly 25 years ago, Donkey Kong Country was released to the world, and it quickly won over gamers with its pre-rendered CGI graphics, became one of the best-selling Super NES games of all time, and spawned numerous sequels. And while its graphics might not have the wow factor they had in 1994, Donkey Kong Country’s gameplay holds up to this day.

While Donkey Kong Country is known for being difficult, many people have mastered it. Are you one of them? Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition will put your platforming skills to the test. It removes the DK Barrels (which give you your characters back if you lose them) and Star Barrels (which act as checkpoints), so you can only take two hits in each stage before losing a life and being forced to start over from the beginning.

Additionally, all the Warp Barrels have been removed. If you think you’re just going to skip over Mine Cart Carnage, Stop & Go Station, or any other stage in the game, think again.
