Years ago, I did a full translation of Last Bible S with a VERY good Game Gear hacker. It was looking great! Unfortunately, the game is hard as nails, and I just couldn't get through it. I didn't want to release it untested, so it kinda sat around for ages... It gets worse, though. My e-mail account ended up getting hacked, and I lost the guy's contact information. The only good thing is that I still have the ROM.

I can't remember anything about him, other than that he really knew the system well, and pulled off some very impressive feats with the hack.

Now I'm trying to tie up loose ends, and I want to finish the project at last. If he doesn't want to finish it himself, I'll let someone else handle what's left. (There's not much to do at this point...)

If anybody happens to know which hacker I'm talking about, I'd appreciate your help getting in touch with him. Nothing was formally announced, so I doubt many people know, but on the off chance that he spoke about the project to someone else, I'd appreciate a lead.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if there's THAT many people who do extensive GG hacking. Maybe SMS Power! might be a good place to ask, probably more likely to find a lot of dedicated Sega 8-bit hacking fans there.

z80gaiden is one name that sticks out as a potential hacker. I think he helped with SMSP's Phantasy Star Retranslation and maybe the same guy that cracked Shining Force Gaiden 3's compression.

His name is Steven Seahorn and released translations under SSTranslations iirc. I think he became disinterested in fan translations and decided to focus his attention on homebrew.

Can't wait to see another Last Bible translated. Wish you the best of luck!

By the way...Mr.Richard999 took a jab at the game back last year. You could contact him if you cannot reach the other guy to help finish off the project.
