Glad to hear it. Let me know what you think once you've given it a spin.
It's great.

I actually just submitted a review for the hack. :D

Good JOB! I'll probably take a look at it soon to give possible feedback.

Wow! Only a week and already 80 downloads. Thanks for the enthusiasm, all. Didn't expect anyone to care much about the project and I've been pleasantly surprised throughout the whole process.

Cheers to you (yes, YOU).

Como están?  ;) quería felicitarlos por el gran juego que han hecho, me ha gustado mucho. Soy de argentina y me he propuesto hace un tiempo traducir este gran juego al español, ya que es uno de mis favoritos desde niño. Pero me he topado con el problema de que no encuentro el texto de diálogos. El texto que describe el nombre de niveles y los mensajes al final de cada nivel si he podido hallarlo y traducirlo con Translhextion, pero no lo demás. Le escribí un mail al señor Tavarezz y su respuesta fue que el no recuerda que el texto estuviera comprimido, lo cual me dejo desconcertado  :banghead: pues esperaba que el me diera le respuesta clave para terminar la traducción. A mi esto se me complica mucho, ya que la programación no es a lo que yo me dedico, pero he leído realmente mucho del tema desde hace unos 2 meses y he probado de todo pero nada!. Sin mas que decir espero que ustedes puedan darme alguna ayuda para poder terminar con mi trabajo ya que han logrado un excelente hack estoy seguro que podrán ayudarme. Sin mas que decir los felicito nuevamente y GRACIAS!  :thumbsup:

Why, congratulations, keithisgood! Your research in drecrypting this game's text is about to come in use for a translation project!

As an aside, are you looking into changing the other versions of the game into Magic Kids? Perhaps undoing the "ganstaization" of Mick and Mack (or Nick and Will, if you perfer) in the Amiga, Atari ST, and DOS versions?

MobyGames doesn't have any screenshots of the Amiga version, but there are a few videos on YouTube, such as this one.

Well, I'm not sure how much credit I should get in regards to text translation: I dug with a hand shovel, Alchemic used a backhoe and provided a working decompression/insertion python script

And updating other versions of the game is an interesting proposition. I've only worked in NES thusfar, though, and have very little idea of how that skillset translates to other platforms (I do have are a very particular set of rom hacking skills. Skills I have acquired over a very short career. Skills that make it a nightmare hacking other platforms).

I'm actually working another rom hacking gig right now, but once I'm free, I'll poke around the other formats.
