Quote from: yetisyny on September 23, 2018, 08:18:15 AMYou know how there were 2 games made for the SNES that had actual voice acting in them? Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean.Tales of Phantasia got fully translated, both the text done by DeJap Translations, and another translation group, Topping Translations, did the audio. The 2 translations were combined into one that works with regular, non-interleaved ROMs by Spinner 8 and you can find it here: https://www.romhacking.net/translations/2335/Star Ocean got its TEXT translated by DeJap Translations, same as with Tales of Phantasia, and you can find that here: https://www.romhacking.net/translations/452/ However, nobody ever bothered to translate the audio from Japanese into English as it was done for Tales of Phantasia.Somebody needs to do an audio translation patch for Star Ocean for SNES, the way Topping Translations did it for Tales of Phantasia for SNES. Nobody even needs to do any voice acting. The enhanced remake, Star Ocean: First Departure, for PlayStation Portable, already has English voice acting, in fact quite a lot more than the original.The relevant audio that is equivalent to audio used in the original SNES version just needs to be extracted from the PSP version, converted to the form used in the SNES version of Star Ocean, and then put into the ROM to replace its Japanese voice acting. OK maybe I was making it sound easy when I used the word "just" in that last sentence, actually it would be quite difficult, but the point is, no actual voice acting would need to be done, just ROM hacking, a single person with enough ROM hacking skills could do this. And it would be AWESOME.

That game is filled right to the absolute brim.Tales of Phantasia can be expanded to 8MB and be usable in most emulators nowadays at that size, but in the case with Arche in the video I did there, I had to move a few voices into a new area due to them NOT being two voices spliced together.It's not terribly difficult, but it's also not super easy to do either.
Quote from: yetisyny on September 27, 2018, 10:37:08 PMWhoa, good job! If you put out any hacks for those games like what I see in those videos I will be delighted! I didn't call THIS easy, I said that about replacing a pretty small amount of text in the Zero Wing intro, and I didn't mean SUPER easy for that either, I just meant, much easier than translating an entire RPG from Japanese into English (e.g. much easier than translating Final Fantasy V or Tales of Phantasia or Star Ocean etc.).Substituting audio in Tales of Phantasia or Star Ocean for Super Famicom is definitely quite a lot harder than that, it involves audio codecs and ROMs that start out at 6 MB and such. And then to test the audio, well, that is also quite a bit more complicated too since you need to do the actions that trigger the different audio clips. For instance, in Tales of Phantasia there is the intro, a few cutscenes, the J-pop song, various spells and named attacks, quite a bit. Actually quite hard! Your work so far is pretty impressive.As far as 8 MB ROMs those are supported in higan/bsnes, Snes9x 1.54 and later, and the ZSNES 8 MB custom build by FuSoYa, as well as multi-system emulators based on those previous ones, so that is pretty much standard thanks to FuSoYa unless we are talking about people that still use ZSNES and do not use the FuSoYa build.

Quote from: Shade Aurion on October 02, 2018, 09:36:02 PM- Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land (GB)Someone should make the effort to colorize this. Super Mario Land 1 and 2 have been hacked into color. Wario Land 2 and 3 had color releases, making Super Mario Land 3, the middle game in the series, the only game not available in color.
