Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine - Spanish Translation
« on: July 28, 2020, 06:45:21 pm »
So I am working with Max1323 on translation Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine into Spanish Translation.

Please remember that this is a English speaking forum, so please speak in English when talking about the translation.

Please also note that I don't speak Spanish, and I am dealing with the hacking side. Max1323 is the one providing the translations. If you do spot any translations errors/have better suggestions, then please mention.

I have put together a partial disassembler to make the translation easy to edit. You can download the current version here:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/ndge6zazh20eqgk/DRMBM+Spanish+-+Disassembly.7z/file

You will need to download and place "asm68k.exe" in the main root of the folder.
You will also need to:
1 - Download the US ROM of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
2 - Place in the /rom folder.
3 - Rename to: DRMBM.bin
4 - Apply the DRMBM.ips to the DRMBM.bin rom.
5 - Press build.bat to build the rom.

The rom is region free, and runs in NTSC and PAL (optimized).

What is translated/can be translated:
- Title text
- Dialog for the Enemies
- Options text
- Input Test text
- Sound Test text (unlocked by default)
- How to Play text (needs translating)
- Cast Text (only "AND..." need to be translated)
- Credits
- Most of the VS and Exercise Text
- Most of the Scenario Text
- Password Tiles and Text
- High Scores Tiles and Text
- Pause Text
- Main Menu Text
- Rank Text
- Continue Text
- Checksum Text
- Region Text

The only things that won't be translated are:
- The Game's Title text
- GAME OVER text

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone good at sprite editing? This graphic needs editing:


Puyo Pop Fever uses ¡BRAVO! and ¡OH NO!
 
I need to locate the sprite attribute for those graphics.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Working On:

- Need to figure out how the Main Menu tile data is laid out to fix "Select A Mode Text".
- Look at ALL RIGHT and OH NO sprite attributes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Screenshots (in progress):

The RANK text was using the same values as the High Score letters. Luckily I had them figured out in my DX Edition hack. So that can be changed:


Figured out how the CONTINUE text works.


Now I've got to figure out how the Main Menu frame works. I know where the data is.
