That's what I was afraid of. That's a hefty requirement for something of little gain. To that I would say do not bother mapping anything to 40-4f:0000-ffff and allow it to remain unused as it is now. The expanded meg is already accessible via 10-1f:8000-ffff + 90-9f:8000-ffff and it would be fast access at that for the 90-9f region vs. slow for everywhere else. I don't see any reason one would need to map it to 40-4f, nor would want to access it there. This way, the original game will still function perfectly fine and the cart modification is actually reduced to adding the extra address line and you're done. Nothing more than a single wire and two solder points. :)

For record I spoke to byuu about this. I glossed over the fact that only half of the expanded meg would be accessible via 10-1f:8000-ffff + 90-9f:8000-ffff. Doh! So, 40-4f would be the only place the entire second meg would be accessible if needed.

My proposal is still a valid expansion and would indeed be better suited for a cart modification, but he said he absolutely requires the full meg. So, that's that. I would like to see an easier original cart adaptation (ideally one that even fits with no expansion at all), but at least it will make it more difficult for bootleggers if it's harder. I do hate those bootleggers.

It also appears Tom now has a version with his script inserted to play with, so I will rest easy now. Carry on gentlemen. :thumbsup:

I have no idea what byuu has in mind either, so let's wait and see. I'm pretty curious.

And yup, maybe Tom will post some new screenshots soon for everyone's pleasure.

The links are broken, but if you copy the URLs and paste them into the address bar, they can be viewed.
That's so exciting. I love this game, and I can't wait for it to be available to more people.

I really like the font being used. Looks professional and goes well with the game.

Isn't it the Final Fantasy Advance games' font?

Yeah, probably. I can't actually remember where I got it, but I definitely didn't make it myself ;)
I just added a lot of Latin characters with diacritics and a few symbols the script uses.

Simple solution: they could release two versions, one "complete" with all Byuu stuff, and another one smaller to play on real cart. This way everyone will be happy. Who agree?

That would work fine, but I doubt he would agree to that. Depending on the details of what exactly he needs the space for it might be technically challenging to make it optional. Without details I have no idea.

Somehow I don't see byuu making a separate patch to please repro-sellers.
Didn't he say he put a s***load of protection on Der Langrisser to create a nightmare for anyone that would try to remove his intro?
(checking again, his intro apparently doesn't have a "not for sale" message nor credits beyond "DL Team". But I can't really another reason besides anti-repro to go to that effort.
I don't remember if it was him or D that actually did get a repro seller to remove it for sale.)

That was D. I think he claimed copyright on the font and put in a DMCA takedown request to the repro's web host.

It turns out that people couldn't view my images properly.
I'm trying a different way to link the images this time.

Can you see this one?

That the same font you guys used in Mother 3 and Innocent Sin? I think it suits this game, too.  Can't contain my excitement over this project.
