Bushi Seiryuuden script dump etc

Everyone probably knows Game Freak for making Pokemon, and since this community is sort of focused around obscure retro games, most of you probably also know that they made an RPG on the SNES called Bushi Seiryuuden - futari no yuusha. I haven't beaten it yet, but it's really fun and interesting. In particular, the combat system kept me engaged. There's a target number of turns for finishing each battle, and you get tasty candies if you can beat it, but it is very tricky to slip in under the limit. Although the combat has turns, it is very fluid, almost like an action RPG. If you want a better description, please read the HG101 article on bushi seiryuuden

As this thread title suggests, I dumped the script and made a table, but there are a ton of embedded pointers and/or control codes that I can't figure out. Since there is very little talk of this game from what the forum search tool could show me, I thought it would be worthwhile to at least post what I have for a couple reasons: maybe someone will help me figure out control codes, or maybe someone can use it to jump start a translation project of their own. <- VERY ugly script, uses 852 kanji (but 575 of them are elementary level!) <- table (missing MANY control codes)

I'll take a look later today! This game's always been interesting to me.


it does indeed have the pokemon look a like animation (thus being made no other than game freak & Nintendo) nice looking gameplay and areas in the game ;) good pick man!


I adore this game (played it all the way through 2 times, good times!) and the article on 101 is actually from me.
I would really love to see it translated.

If you manage to make any progress and need a translator, let me know. I've had my eye on this game for a while. :D
