Title: Mother 2 (Earthbound) can I make the super famicom game english?
Post by: peshti on December 13, 2017, 01:12:15 pm
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this in the forum.
I'm thinking of buying mother 2 (Earthbound) because it's just so much cheaper than the US version Earthbound.

Does Mother 2 have an english translation, I've read somewhere about a hack that made earhtbound more uncensored, does that work with the super famicom game Mother 2?

Thanks

Yes, it's called EarthBound.

Are you trying to play your cart in one of those shitty consoles with stolen emulator code that let you apply IPS patches?

If that's the case, you can just create an IPS from the US release. In fact, you can transform any cart you have into any other game for the system using that same method.

How do I create an IPS? I don't have the cart yet, I'm just thinking of buying it and I guess I have one of those consoles, I have a retro freak. I love so I don't think it's shitty :)

Do you know of a tutorial for the IPS?

Play Maternalbound, about everything you want is in there.  Well, it uses a US version.  But still, if you're going to do what mz says you might as well keep the intro.  :P

You use a program called Lunar IPS. It's really easy and you can figure it out once you start using it. However, if you want to do this legally you need to rip the ROM off of the cartridge. You can also just download the ROM from a ROM site but...you know....

I see! How do I dump from a cartridge?

Also I have a retrofreak which dumps the rom from the cartridge to an sd card, would it be legal to create the ips from that dumped rom that's in the sd card?

Legal? Probably technically no.
Moral? That's your call.

I'm no expert on the subject, but I think you rip SNES ROMs off of cartridges to your PC with something called "Retrode".

I See I have ordered the super famicom game mother 2 so I will give this method a try :)

I don't think you understand what this method is.  You will not be able to Earthbound in English unless you download a US Earthbound ROM from somewhere on the Internet.  Creating an IPS patch is just a roundabout way of running the ROM on your Retrofreak.

I understand fully what this is, this is basically the same as playing a rom on the computer via emulation. Earthbound is such an expensive game and I can't pay so much money for one single game. However I feel that owning mother 2 is more morally right and feels more legally right to allow me to the play this game. I don't know if I make sense but I just think some games are unrealistically expensive. I have no problem paying over 100$, even 200$, but earthbound cib is madly expensive. At least on ebay
