Thanks a lot. I'll be sure to mention your contribution in the readme when I release the patch.

Not much progress with the script, lately, but I finally figured out the image format for the opening credits. Here are comparison shots:

Neat.

You know, I never really figured a good way to capture the essence of that blocky letter style in Japanese or Roman characters. It is unequivocally a Hangul look.
we are in a horrible and deadly danger

Btw, I was thinking about what patching system to use for the patch later. Is there a system that can create one single patch file from multiple changed game files?

Hmm, looks like it can only handle 1 file per patch?

I found a scanned advertisement for the game someone had uploaded on the web, which shows the title in English in an "official" font, so I decided to go with that:



The script is at about 50% now (the game is rather short for an RPG), but I'm making good progress lately, so it probably won't take another year. ;)

Not a progress update this time (although there has been some progress), but I've got an interview with the director of this game, and we also talk a bit about Romance of Forgotten Kingdom:

With help from Tauwasser, I was able to convert the ending credits now:



The script is now fully translated and "only" needs reinserting the final third. This is the most annoying task in the whole process, but I should be able to upload a patch before the end of June.

Wow, this game looks pretty cool and I've never heard of it. I wonder how complicated it is to do DOS hacking. I know nothing about it.

It really depends on the game. This one made some things comparatively easy, as it had an English font already built in, and the Korean text was fairly accessibly stored in an old standard format.

Graphics hacking has been the hardest part, the tile viewers used for ROM hacks of console games are mostly useless here. I had to write two converters for graphics myself, and there are still a few things I have no hope finding without assembler hacking, which I'm incapable of. These two bits will most likely remain untranslated in the release:

   
Left: "Miss" notification above the character in white; Right: Analyze spell enemy status information

After the translation has been sitting on my hard disc in an almost-done state for nearly half a year, I finally found the time to put it all together. It's currently waiting to get approved for the database, in the meantime you can get more info here:

EDIT: The entry is up:

Is there a chance to get a news post on the front page for this? AFAIK this is the first ever fully playable fan translated Korean RPG.

I hope this is old but I need help.  I can't find this game to download.  I already look everywhere in google.  Nothing I can find.  Where I can find them?  It is not anywhere I can find for dos rom.
