256KB PRG-ROM is the largest for mapper 33. You have 4(counting from 0) bits to use for PRG-ROM bank switching. The 6th bit is used for mirroring control; vertical or horizontal.

A note about this mapper. The last 16KB is hardwired to $C000 - $FFFF. The rest of the banks are 8KB switched in at $8000 - $9FFF and $A000 - $BFFF. Should be easy to work with. Only thing to be cautious about is the fact that one of them uses IRQ and another does not. One document says there are two types for this mapper. Type I: No IRQ Type II: IRQ.

I'm pretty sure NFLATE can be used to expand the ROM. I noticed that Pennywise said and he also told me that the expansion worked in Nestopia, what about other NES emulators? We also talked about this last night on IRC. Just figured I'd mention it again here after thinking more about this mapper.

As far as my translation projects are concerned; I haven't been working on them much lately. I haven't been able to get a translator for games like Asmik Kun-land. For whatever reason, people say they will do it but never do. Not sure what the problem is.

I've also been working on some NES demos to increase my working knowledge of games. I'm sure it will help me more later on in doing more complicated hacks. I was doing a lot of NSF ripping. Another reason why I haven't been working on my translation projects.

It might be wrong of me to ask, but are the Blood of Bahamut, Ace Attorney Investigations 2, Archaic Sealed Heat, or SaGa 3 translations notable for DS? Almost all of those seem to be moving at a good clip, unless you count ASH. That project's technically been "done" since September of last year according to the girl in charge of the project, but there's rumors that the she gave up despite the game being fully translated almost two years ago. From a leaked beta of the translation to the angry community about lack of updates over at GBATemp, many assume there that she just said "fuck it" after a while.

It's a shame too, because that game seems cursed. Nintendo of America's trend of skipping RPGs this generation (infamously peaking very recently with the Xenoblade/Last Story/Pandora's Tower situation that just happened) actually started with ASH. NoA was working on a version for North America, as the game was far along to be rated by the ESRB (the game would never be released in North America), and then there was the whole debacle with the fan project.

I think Crimson Nocturnal stopped their SaGa 3 project for the same reasons regarding the community, so the one I'm referring to is the more recent project.
