Update By: SteveMartin

After several months in the making, the English translation of the obscure Taiwanese Megadrive RPG Barver Battle Saga is now released, and reborn as Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior!

A lot of work went into bringing this game to an English audience, so we hope you all enjoy this very fine release, just in time for New Years!

Wow. What an awesome way to end the year! I now have a reason to get that Genesis emulator for my Wii! Awesome job, guys!

Why's the patch 0.99? What's not done?

It's right next to 1.00(final) since we haven't play tested the whole thing through yet. That's where we're going to need the help of all you fine members here  :thumbsup: I don't have any idea if there's any more typos, glitches or what have you left over that haven't gone noticed yet. So if anyone notices any glitches or something wrong, please post it here!

I see. I didn't even gain control of the main character yet, and I already found a typo. >_>

Gah, that's odd. I was just going through the whole script the other day and that wasn't there. Possibly my PC is to blame, I recently got a virus and rewrote over my old windows installation with a new one. Since then text files have come out all messed up, I don't know what happened. I possibly sent Djinn a bad script.

Anyway, keep them coming, bound to be even more in there if that made it.

Edit: PLEASE READ! A bug was discovered with Regen, preventing saving. It's suggested you use Kega or Gens for the time being. I'll b sure to report this to Djinn and try to get it fixed.

Hey, great news. Congratulations on the release.

I've been curious about this game for awhile so I'll have to give it a spin.

Happy New Years.

Glad you guys are enjoying it :)

Updated patch coming soon. We've got confirmation that the patch works fine with a Tototek flash cart. Besides the em dashes turning into E's thanks to my encoding issues, any other glitches thus far appear to be emulator glitches and nothing that's a result of the patch.

Anyone else that has flash carts, please post if you come across any glitches. So far it's been confirmed not to work with the Neo Flashcart.

That's weird, I just started the game and didn't get the error that DarknessSavior did.  The text is appearing fine.

Perhaps we used different roms?  Mine was "Barver Battle Saga - The Space Fighter (Ch).gen"

I can't believe this is a pirate rom, it's better than most legit RPGs from back then. I especially love how fast everything moves. The hacking is just insane, I tried the Chinese version and was blown away by all the changes you guys were able to implement.

Thanks for all the hard work guys, I'm about 2 hours in and it's the most fun I've had with an RPG since Treasure of the Rudras.

Hmm, yeah, I'm also getting a black screen trying to load it on Genesis Plus for Wii.  The same ROM seems to load fine in Kega, but I'd really rather play it on the Wii. :\

EDIT: Just wanted to note that the original Chinese ROM appears to work just fine.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: SteveMartin on January 01, 2010, 09:20:12 pm
A new patch was released last night that fixed the text errors. There's still a couple more problems that will be fixed in a future release, including a glitch when you try to change players positions in battle from the menu, and a problem when casting a spell called See.

So far it seems the best emulator for this might be Gens. I can't really say what the problem is with other emulators sadly :/ I've been told it's not the patches fault. Seeing as the original Chinese ROM is reported to work fine though I don't know what to think. Hopefully something can be figured out eventually :)

I patched rom "Barver Battle Saga - The Space Fighter (Ch).gen" and also "Barver Battle Saga - The Space Fighter (Ch).bin"n" and they both load to a blank screen

Only patch it on a .bin ROM. .gen isn't a format that will work, neither will .smd :)

Bugfixes in the pending to update patch:

   - Fixed output of spell and item list in battle.
   - Spell "See" renamed to "Analyze" and
     fixed information output when it is used.
   - Fixed routine of numbers' output.
   - Fixed output of characters' names when
     switching their places in menu.

This is most likely an original game bug but... could you check into the defense stat? It seems to do absolutely nothing. I'm level 8 or 9, with the armor from the second town, and slimes still hit me just as hard as they did when I started the game.

Nice work, BTW. :)
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: Djinn on January 01, 2010, 11:42:54 pm
I think it's allright with defense stat. The current monsters I meet at 23 level hit me just 1-3 HP except if they did not a vexing blow.

Did anyone get to Imir yet?  The road is washed out by lava, so I think you are supposed to talk to the chief in Manei to go to the volcano.  The guys blocking the path never leave though and the chief is no help.  I guess I probably didnt do something, but I am not sure what... Maybe backtrack and get rid of the barrier on the castle?  Lot of crazy secrets in this game, I am finding a bunch while looking around.

Post by: Trojax on January 02, 2010, 02:06:45 pm
Well it seems like you can easily run from the fights... and you get as many chances as characters in your party... but I have found a bunch of cash in secrets... there is a nice secret area south of the cave to imir that had a magic seed and I think a flame shield..  Also one in the small cave where you fight the witch... it like a summoning spell... pretty powerful I think.  Its strange how spells that hit all enemies seem to focus on a solo enemy if thats all there is in the fight.  Anyways I think I hit a bug in the game... maybe ill start over and make sure I talk to everyone so I dont get off track.

I found a secret of my own: After you do the butterfly capturing and cure the girl, go back to the forest and take the north opening, the first of the two. an optional boss will be there, another butterfly. Beat it(Not the easiest thing in the world to do, mind you), and you'll get the Butterfly summon.

Post by: Trojax on January 02, 2010, 03:11:13 pm
Might be a bug in the patch.  I got past the part I got stuck at (going to the volcano north of manei)  by using the unpatched rom.  I talked to a villager in Manei who says to talk to the chief so he would remove guys at the north exit of the village.  The chief actually does this on the unpatched rom,  but he just says something about the volcano on the patched one.  Also might be another bug when you try to sell your magic... I scrolled to the bottom of Tim's list and it froze.  I guess many people would miss this... seems strange you can sell your magic... especially in this game that actually gives you enough money unlike many other RPGs.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: Djinn on January 03, 2010, 03:03:55 am
Yes there is a bug. SteveMartin deleted the control code in dialog about to talk with a chief. :)
I hope there is not many bugs of such type.

I guess if you're going to take your battle system from another game, Chrono Trigger / Final Fantasy VI and Breath of Fire 2 would be good choices.

In any case, this is pretty impressive.  I like what's being done with the Genesis here.  I do wonder if something like Chrono Trigger would have been able to be ported.  I suspect so, with some necessary sacrifices.  Also, the hacking job looks very good.  Great job, guys!

Seems this game uses a lot of FF6 stuff IIRC, like some NPC, tiles, and even the protagonist's laugh sprite reminds me of that? And when I read the opening lines, I thought it was a FF6 port.

Quote from: Final Fantasy VI Transcript
Long ago, the War of the Magi reduced the world to a scorched
wasteland, and magic simply ceased to exist.

1000 years have passed...  Iron, gunpowder and steam engines have been
rediscovered, and high technology reigns...

But there are some who would enslave the world by reviving the dread
destructive force known as "magic."

Can it be that those in power are on the verge of repeating a
senseless and deadly mistake?

Sorry for offtopic, gotta try it ASAP.

I noticed that before, had forgotten completely about it :) No doubt they ripped it off.

I think the character Ayrshire's sprite is Kefka  :laugh: I never noticed until now. Browsing through what's available on spriters-resource.com though I can't find much else that looks familiar.

I always personally held Beggar Prince as the best Chinese RPG for Genesis. Possibly because it was the first one I ever played(the original Chinese version, back in 2003, not the English translation mind you :P)

Yes, it's definitely better than Wukong. That one's not too good at all.

Hi, I'm new at romhacking forums, although I've been lurking this site for years now. I'm a great fan of rpgs, especially oldschool ones. I've just finished this game, and I've found it really interesting.

I only want to add my little contribution. Using emucheat, I've been able to find the memory adresses of the "next lvl" value for every character, so I was able to put it to zero, resulting in levelling up after every battle (makes level up a lot easier,  ;)) Well, here you are

Tim: 00E118 and 00E119 (it's a 2 byte value, so put zero in both bytes)

Cherrie: 00E168 and 00E169 (same as above)

Celia: 00E1B8 and 00E1B9 (same as above)

Ray: 00E208 and 00E209 (same as above)

I know that playing with cheats is not as fun as playing the game the normal way, but it's useful for people like me who only want to follow the plot and not waste time raising levels and loosing against bosses over and over.

I don't blame you, that's show I played when translating the game  :happy: Unfortunately that led to me not knowing how the majority of spells look, which led to improper translations. That'll all be fixed in the next patch :)

There'll be other enemy types later...

Glad to see the bug with the chief was corrected, I was stuck on that for hours. Is the corrected patch compatible with the previous version?

I also feel it is a better game than either Beggar Prince (which was decent) and Wukong (which was awful). I really dig the soundtrack and the whole look of the game. Something about the Genesis's sound and darker colors. Only beef I have with it is there are too many monsters wandering about.

Not sure if anyone else has run into this, but I found a bug that causes the game to freeze whenever you go to the bottom of your sell screen at the magic shop.  I'm using the latest version of Gens
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: Alex on January 19, 2010, 10:09:07 pm
I just finished beating the game using the latest version of gens and that has not happen to me so where exactly in the game did that the bug happen to you and what version of this game do you have ?
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: heratio on January 19, 2010, 10:47:44 pm
I have version .99 beta 2 so I guess I'll download beta 4.  The freezing happened at the magic shop in the town before Cruz Castle (sorry forgot the towns name).  It happens when I try going to the bottom of the spell page for Tim when selling spells.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: Alex on January 20, 2010, 12:31:04 pm
Yeah try the beta 4 patch cause so far I have played this game alot using it and I have not found a single bug.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: heratio on January 20, 2010, 06:59:29 pm
I tried it out on Beta 4 and the freezing bug does not occur.  Oddly, on the old patch there was an extra spell for Tim (I think it was Ice) by itself towards the bottom but is not there for the newest patch.  I just finished the volcano and I havent run into any other problems.  Thanks for those that worked on this patch.

BTW, for those that finished the game, how many hours did it take you?

Not sure if this was an error or not.  In the lab there are scorpion enemies that are dropping 48,000 gold when I have not seen any other enemy give more than 4,000 gold anywhere in the game before that.  Not sure if perhaps an extra zero was added to that since these enemies don't seem special.

They give such many.

Took me roughly 16 hours.
Don't remember my exact levels (though I go check) but I know it was much, much lower since I never grinded and avoided most enemies (or used cheats). The final boss is respectable, but not THAT hard. By the end of the game you should have tons of money, so you can buy all the MP-restoring items and healing spells you need.

Can someone help me? I've been told by the Goddess of Life that she'll help Tim if I find her fellow fairies. The problem is, I can't. I can't find the camp, you see. Supposedly it's southeast of the forest, but... I can't find a southeast exit. I can only find three caves, one just leads back to the area where you're ambushed by the demons. One Just leads to the path where you find the Goddess' cave, and the Goddess' cave itself.

From that lone house in the woods, go east across the bridge to a cave and keep going east and you should hit the camp.


I did find a bug towards the end of the game involving the shops.  When I go to sell items it looks normal for about the first half of the screen but when I go down more towards the armor it starts having problems.  For example, when I tried to sell a helmet for a few thousand gold I would hit the button but then on the sell screen it would show another item like a healing item instead.  This same thing would occur for all of the items I tried to sell that were past half way down.

Go left from that screen to another screen, I'm pretty sure you will cross a bridge and then come to a cave.  Go through the cave and you should be in an icy land, keep going left and you should hit the camp.

Hopefully thats correct, this game is so linear that its hard to go back to previous areas and check and make sure I am right.

Hm, another original game bug. Thanks for finding.


About that Goddess of Life. They say southwest, not southeast. So go left.

So, I've advanced, and for the life of me I have no idea where to find the Ice Cicada. Can someone point me in the right direction?

It's in the Tata Treetops area. Another one of those maze like areas, fraid I can't point you to it directly.

I believe you first have to look for the Ice Cicada towards the bottom right, when you reach him, it will fly up.  You then have to go up chasing it and you will find it on one of the top screens.  If you're not paying attention, you might miss the cicada hidden on the trunks and branches.

Has any of the various updates made this playable on the Wii Genesis emulator? IIRC the original game was said to work, but the patched game does not.

So, I'm stuck yet again. ._. Spoiler tagging my question.

Spoiler:
I'm in the demon world trying to activate Edison, and I can't follow Hemo. One entrance gives me a message saying it's blocked, and the other leads to a dead-end(A small area surrounded totally by a circle of mountain/hill/etc, to be exact). I have no idea how to proceed.

Can someone help me?

Man, I suck at this game. XD

Lost again... ._. I truly suck at this game.

I have spoken to Edison, and now I'm not sure where to go next, or how to get to my next location. Everything in the demon world goes in circles...

I can access the town, and speaking to everybody doesn't help me any. :(

I'm not sure where you are... have you been through the forest south of the town in the Demon World yet? To get that computer part or whatever it was?

The forest just takes me in circles...  But, I went back to Edison and was told to go back to the forest. So, thanks.

Edit: Finished the game. Excellent work, Djinn!

I registered myself just so you could help me.

Well, when i boot the game, it is shown untranslated even though the ips file is just beside it with the same name as the game file. thats how you apply a patch right? it always worked for me before on super nintendo roms.

Im obiviously doing something wrong here :-\

Not all emulators have what is known as soft patching, where the patch is applied to the rom by the emulator. Use Lunar IPS, found here (http://www.romhacking.net/utils/240/), to apply the patch.

i didn't know that some emulator didn't support soft patching nor that it was called that.

too bad for gens

Many thanks for your efforts in translating such an obscure game, I just started taking a gander at it, and it looks interesting.
I can't imagine the ammount of hard work you guys put on this game having to translating from taiwanese
besides having to deal with unusual coding and such technical hurdles.
The Genesis never quite had a highly engrossing list of RPGs in its library compared to the Snes,
and having been brought up as a Genesis person during my childhood, it makes me happy to see another game
to help change that reality.
Thanks again and sorry for the long post.

Edit: I seem to have ran into that sound issue that was reported. I'm pretty sure I am using the correct rom,
but some samples become pure static at times, especially when moving the cursor during battle.
I'm using the latest version of Kega Fusion. Could this be an emulator issue?
Thanks.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!
Post by: Lilinda on March 28, 2010, 09:34:53 am
Try version 3.61. Occasionally, static will show up in that version too, but reloading the rom fixes it there.
Title: Re: Translations: Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior released!

To whom it may interest, the latest version of Kega Fusion (3.64) fixes the sound issues completely.

Anyone able to get past the fucking volcano? I can't ._. if you know which teleporters to take, please let me know.

I Made a map actually.  This zip file contains the few mistakes I've found, and the Volcano map I made.
http://www.mediafire.com/?yzdttdzkqmt (http://www.mediafire.com/?yzdttdzkqmt)
One pic, it should say "Many" instead of "Man"
Two pic, it should say "Thank" instead of "Thasnk"
Three pic should is "If you use Babel" instead of "If you lose Babel"
Four pic is a map of the Volcano.
By the way, I can't seem to download the IPS from RomHack.

Maybe the patch you used is old? Because I cannot see any of those typos in current patch.

After eyeing on this thread for a couple of months since the release, congratulations and all. (Woot! Like the guy above, I'm months late congratulating you, LOL.)

Never knew unlicensed, ripped-graphic, ripped music etc. game would be so good! I have been playing this on the PC and the PSP... so guys... I'm kinda interested in another game by ChuanPu Tech. made, here have a look at this: http://www.romhacking.net/trans/965/

Hope you consider this game too, it looks cool and kind of better... I dunno till we get this game blessed in the holy light of English.  ;D

I just recently beat this and I have been wanting to send my thanks to the translators for a while now.

Thank you so much Djinn and SteveMartin!  I know people do this type of thing for fun and out of boredom and what-not, but I'm sure you do it for people like us to enjoy as well.

I just want you guys to know how much appreciation I have for translators/rom hackers like you.  I can't begin to imagine the amount of time and effort that was put into this amazing work!

I hope you two work on more translations in the future - for the betterment of this outstanding community.

(sorry for the late post, but hopefully this goes to show that your work will be enjoyed by newcomers like me for years.)

I'm bumping this because the patch is no longer available on RHDN for reasons mentioned on the project page. I've got a few questions and stuff to ponder.

Have the rights to the hack and translation been bought as well? It seems fool hardy to not use the work that went into it as at least a base considering the quality of it.

Also, from what I understand, the game contains copyrighted material from Data East and Squaresoft, which makes an official release tricky. AFAIK, Super Fighter Team tends to avoid these types of games because of the copyright issues of stolen assets. So the license holders either need to work out a deal with the rights holders to pay more money, hack the game and replace the stolen stuff and spend more money, or do nothing and hope for no legal action.
