Also

Where can I find that manual and/or any of his other works?

There's a link to the whole package of supplemental TMZ materials here. Seems to still be up, but it's Dropbox, so you never know how long that'll last.

EDIT: Doh, somehow missed filler's post.

This game is legendary for the fact it pushed the NES to it's very limit, glad to see Metal Slader Glory has been revived.

would this play on an everdrive? or does the extra hardware requirement prevent that?

The readme says that "no flashcart currently supports this translation", so I think it won't.
There has to be a better life.

Well, about the CRC, I managed to apply the patch on the rom that exists on the edgeemu site, it's C032F38F, so far as I've seen, the game is running perfectly.  :)

Thank you so much for the hard work. I've just tried the game, and it seems to be my kind of jam. I was so hyped that I mashed together some crappy fan-made custom cover. Had to release my joy somewhere eh? :3

It was my intention to write an extensive piece on the game and series before I released the patch, but I still haven't found the time to sit down and knock it out.

As far as the SNES version is concerned, I suppose we'll release it in another 10 years.

Tested firing up the ROM on an Nt Mini and that seems to play it without fuzz.
The translation is great by the way. Thank you very much for your work!

I've been enjoying the game so far,  though the beginning's a bit slow.  I noticed that the translation uses a mix of metric and english units.  Was that on purpose?

Well, the translator is British and the game was initially translated with British Grammar, but that got changed during the editing phase. I guess it would depend on the Japanese text though.

I found a (graphical) bug in the translation that's not found in the original game. When selecting an option like "look" ... a bracket appear with other options. In the original, it's pure white ... but in the translation it can sometime be partly grey.

Ha! It'll still be worth the wait :3 Thanks again for doing this.

I have a question about one aspect of the translation:

Spoiler:
Were the passwords named after scifi movie characters in the Japanese, too? Or was that a translator's decision?

Someone may correct me if I'm wrong:
Spoiler:
The original Japanese passwords were phrases that relate to the situation. Things like, 'Let's do our best to investigate' or 'Let's go to the mechanic'

Yeah, that's right, Trickless.

The current passwords were originally placeholders that we left as-is.

I found a (graphical) bug in the translation that's not found in the original game. When selecting an option like "look" ... a bracket appear with other options. In the original, it's pure white ... but in the translation it can sometime be partly grey.

That was a side effect of moving/expanding the options.

For some reason the translation has some glitchy spots in FCEUX and doesn't work so well. Other than that, there'll be another update with some minor fixes.

By the way, since your readme said otherwise, there is no reason why commercial boards would't support CHRs or PRGs up to 1024kB. At least for MMC5.
All you got to do is rewire your ROM chip to match up with the one of an MMC5 Mask Rom as documented here

Hello there! I have a problem.
Spoiler:
After they found out who is an alien on the t-stork, he disappears, the base begins to shake and we are told about an anomaly in the colony 35. And that's all. Then nothing happens.

On the screen I show the colony, the music is playing and that's it. The game does not hang, but nothing more.
Sorry for my bad English.

What emulator are you using? Also ... that's a game spoiler. You might want to use a spoiler tag.
