Hi. This is my first post, I hope I'm doing everything according to the forum rules.
In my first hacking experience, I was trying to translate the game Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari, AKA River City Ransom. I'm a student of Japanese, but as my knowledge of this language is still small, I've decided to take another path, using River City Ransom to restore Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari.
The first step was replace RCR name with the DNM names (Alex to Kunio, Ryan to Riki...) something successful. In this way I intend to replace all the text with the official translation (released in the collection Double Dragon & Kunio-Kun Retro Brawler Bundle).
Afterwards, I was able to replace several sprites, managing to restore Japanese student clothes to the characters. However, the colors are messy in some characters, I tried to change the palettes but in some cases, like the character Riki, he didn’t keep his clothes in the correct color.
Later I also intend to change the title screen.
I always found it curious that a game so beloved was never translated by fans, that's why I decided to do it myself. I saw that many have tried, but never finished. Maybe one day the official version will be hacked and it will be possible to run on NES / Famicom (something difficult, due to the way it was developed), but I hope to go through this translation until the end.
Being the first time I do this, I ask for opinions and help with color correction. I've seen a few older topics here on the forum, some were of great help, but they didn't solve all my doubts. Thank you for now!
