Does anyone here own the original Chinese cartridge?
On the previous thread, there was the question of if this translation when done can be put back on cart and Luiga said yes, but...I don't think so. As I said before:
I doubt the cart for this game would even use mask roms to begin with. More likely it's a glop top covered in epoxy...and even if it does use mask roms, there's no telling what the wiring is to be able to use eproms with it. Then you got the issue of the sheer size of the Pokemon Yellow bootleg requiring pretty large 8-bit EPROMs and probably again not conforming to standards.
I'm not trying to be a nay-sayer, but I just dont think it's possible If you think it is, someone please post some photos of the pcb. I would love to make a repro of this one myself if at all possible. I just doubt it.
I found 3 in total, and have played all 3. I found Naruto, King of Fighters R-2, and Samurai Shodown. I checked the ROMs of Naruto and Samurai Shodown, and they are 2mb ROMs that use mapper 163. I'm not sure about King of Fighters R-2, that game hasn't been dumped yet, but it's likely 2mb as well and uses mapper 163. Most all of their games seem to be that size and use that mapper.
From what I've seen, only one is a usable donor which was Naruto. The other two are glob tops. I checked the chip numbers on the Naruto cart, and it is a 2mb chip.
I have pictures of the PCBs, but my Photobucket bandwidth's been reached, so I'll have to wait a few days to post them.
Ok so there are a few minor errors I've noticed while playing the game again and if there's time, they may require fixing. First things first, the backsprites for Kadabra and Alakazam are swapped around, I'm not sure if its a bug or Nanjing did it like that by mistake but is there a possibility to fix this error?
Plus I'd like to note Electabuzz's name is mispelt as "Electabuz", fix that if you can thanks.
Turns out Magical Leaf (TM19) is actually Giga Drain, 5 PP and the move acts the same as Giga Drain would.
And lastly Giovanni's name is mispelt as "Gilvanni".
I'm not sure if you knew about these minor errors but I thought I'd just post them just incase for any future patches.
Thanks for letting me know, I'll go ahead and fix them.
I think you need to change the tiles of Pokecenter and Pokemart, roof of pokecenter is blue, roof of pokemart is red. And floor of pokecenter very annoying.
I know, the colors on some of the maps are horrible, but it's gonna be fixed. I think they chose that green for the Poke'Mon centers and Poke'Marts because of the plants in there. And I'm definitely going to fix the roofs, that's on my to-do list as well.
Lugia2009, your job is great! But i suggest this:
(it's just mock-up, but it's much better, huh?)
tiles by PokeGlitch
Looks good, I may be able to do it, but the outside border would have to be replaced with a solid color to save graphic tile space. Also, the No. XXX would have to be moved, the white part can only be used for the Poke'Mon sprite. I'll see what I can do.
