Title: Druid: Kyoufu no Tobira FDS / Druid: The Gate of Fear FDS (Released!)

I picked up another project out of boredom, and found this fun FDS game called "Druid: Kyoufu no Tobira".  (Which I had chosen to TL as "The Gate of Fear".)  It's a fun Action-RPG similar to Gauntlet.  Funny thing is... this game has almost NO Japanese in it.  So far, all I have done with this game was changed the subtitle in English in the Title Screen and removed the katakana above.  That's all I did with the title screen.

As for in-game text, I went over the English there and fixed a couple of things. 

In the rating screen, you see the word "apprentice" is spelled correctly.  In the unaltered ROM, it was displayed as "Appretice".  Also, the status condition "Sure" was changed to "Surf".  (This condition reduced damage taken from walking over water.)  Another status condition "Chager" was changed to "Charger".  (This one prolongs the duration of chaos and silence spells.)  One spell was listed as "Ecnelis" which is "Silence" spelled backward.  It's now "Silence" in the game.

The only thing left to do is to check the text in the endings.  I haven't found that yet as I have to beat the game to see one of three endings in the game, depending on your ranking when you beat the final boss.  (This would be easier to find I had an invincibility cheat code, but I haven't found one, and I don't know if it even exists at all.

P.S.:  I tested this game on Mesen, Nestopia, and FCEUX.  On Mesen and Nestopia, the game runs fine.  On FCEUX, the GUI  (shown in the 4th image) will flicker uncontrollably.  (I already alerted the FCEUX team of this bug.  I'm sure they may fix it in the future.)

P.P.S.:  FCEUX was updated to 2.6.3, and the aforementioned bug I had reported was fixed.  "Druid: Kyoufu no Tobira" works properly on FCEUX now.

Those codes help a LOT!  Thank you so much!

Now, I can check the game's endings much more easily now!  :)

Just making a minor update about this project...

I managed to access all three endings of the game, and I've proofread all three so that all the "Engrish" has been fixed.  This means that the project is completed and awaiting approval.  :)

They sure did!  Thanks again!  :)

-EDIT-

Oops!  I didn't mean to do that!  Anyway, the patch is now live!  Enjoy!
