Which Sweet Home translation to play?
« on: March 27, 2021, 05:14:17 pm »
I want to play Sweet Home for the NES, but I'm having trouble picking from these two options:

https://www.romhacking.net/translations/222/

http://www.romhacking.net/translations/2853/

Which of these translations is better? Or does it not matter?

It seems like the more recent translation by JMN and The Siege is the superior one overall.
In a sky full of people, only some want to fly.
Isn't that crazy?

My thought is that you should always play the latest translation, especially when it comes to really old translations such as Sweet Home.

The newest one seemed to be somewhat better to me; they managed to put more text in, supposedly it's more accurate too, so it's likely the superior choice. Like Hemlock said, in most cases the newer translation is better, both in terms of accuracy and hacking.

Okay I added the patch to a rom but I'm having trouble playing it. It seems to make the game glitchy in some ways.
