Secret of Mana Proper-caser
« on: January 13, 2013, 02:40:57 am »
Hello everyone! :) I am just too damn tired to be my usual sunny self.

So everyone knows that Secret of Mana constantly SCREAMS AT YOU IN ALL CAPS in the menus, right? Wouldn't it be nice if it didn't? FuSoYa's Secret of Mana: Variable Width Font Edition doesn't even rectify this, sadly.

Here's where I come in!!!

Click here to download vivify93's Secret of Mana proper-casing patch, v0.1.
Alternatively, click here for the RHDN entry.

Screenshots:

Thanks and enjoy! ;D

I have the japanese version and didn't found any difference, exept the title screen, and that obviously it is in japanese.

I was very disapointed when I figured out Santa also appears in the original japanese game. I was hoping it was bullshit added by Nintendo of america to americanize the game, but alas no. This almost ruined the game for me.

Nice patch.... I'm going to guess there was not a way to add a space to the left of
the Weapon and Spell names so that their level number isn't right next to it?

I guess I'll still have to ignore "OLode Axe" then, lol.


Also, it seems there is an L missing from the word "Skill."

....that was missing -before- the patch? O.o

Man... I've been playing this game since I was 12.
how in the world did I ever miss that???

Oh and um... if it is possible to do, I think it would be plenty fine to abbreviate some of the
stuff in the status window, like "Const." - "Intel." I mean, they already did Magic Def.
I just think that having stuff shoved up against each other like that is a tad icky.

Oddly enough, the Japanese do like to adopt and celebrate western holidays...

I'm just the decapser dude. I would have no idea how to do that.

The string housing these words are spelled out fully in the ROM, so it's a display issue.

I was actually thinking of changing it to say Vitality and Intellect, but I thought better of it. Changing things like stat names isn't really the target of this patch.

Ahhhhhh... okies, so it's just about the cases. Too bad, because the bunched up
Weapon / Spell levels / names and the bunched up stats always drove me nuts, lol.
