Progress has been pretty good. Lots of stuff was frontloaded (all parts, tutorials, name entry, several image and text formats) but I think I've cracked everything that needs to be cracked. There are these very annoying text images that are stored headerless as 16px wide "strips" to be arranged tetris-like into VRAM. After reconstructing the strips into editable images, I can get this kind of output at best:



Entirely workable, just a bit annoying. Ever see any other PS1 games do this?

This may be less likely maybe once this patch is out Square Enix would consider a remaster for the PS5. Other than getting the licenses hopefully this would at least drum up interest. Anyway good luck.

I accidentally found the 1st chapter translated on another site and got so excited to know that someone is working on this one.

I remember my days as a kid wanting to understand this game.

Awesome!

BTW does anyone have any information regarding Soukaigi?

It's been a long time since I last played it but as far as I remember a translation would be quite exhausting because it has lots of cutscenes, so maybe that's what turn people down about working on it?

Or maybe many just think it sucks? :laugh:

I used to like it a lot though, even not understanding a thing.

I don't want to deviate this thread so if someone have information feel free to send me a PM, please.

Thank you and I'll be cheering for Racing Lagoon.
