Makai-Mura / Ghosts n' Goblins (Released!)
« on: October 20, 2021, 02:32:24 am »


https://www.sendspace.com/file/021tm6

I'm waiting for some translations for some Ushio & Tora files, and since I was bored, I thought of working on a quick edit on the infamous Makai-Mura a.k.a. Ghosts n' Goblins.  (Translated as "Demon World Village".)  What was done was a new title screen and cleaned up the "Engrish" at the end.  Anyway, I could use a beta tester or two who has the sanity to complete this game and (hopefully) check how the ending looks.

You will need the Japanese ROM to use this patch with a CRC checksum of 8C3FE6FB with a header.  (File size is 131,088 bytes)  I can't tell you where to find the Japanese ROM.  You'll have to find it yourself.

P.S.:  This has NOT been tested on being patched on an English "Ghosts n' Goblins" ROM.  I don't know what will happen if you use this patch on a Ghosts n Goblins NES ROM instead of a Makai-Mura ROM.

I can do a play through if anything, as a matter of fact I'll do it tonight after dinner.  :thumbsup:

I made an update to my Makai-Mura game patch.  Aside from the new title screen, I finally fixed up all the "Engrish" in the fake and real endings.  (Screenshots above are what I typed up.)

As of now, I have one beta tester looking over this.  (Thanks, Googie!)  More would be welcome. 

I'm hoping I can get this out, officially, in time for Halloween. 

P.S.:  Patch is in two formats. (IPS and BPS)  Both patches are identical to each other and one or the other can be used on the Japanese ROM.

P.P.S.:  This patch has STILL not been tested on the English ROM. (Ghosts n' Goblins)

Was asked to give this game a quick lookthrough, which I did. bps works but ips makes no changes to Japan file.

Playthrough looked fine to me. Applied bps to usa rom and got this

At least, we all know what happens when this patch is applied to the US Ghosts n' Goblins ROM.  Thanks for doing that experiment.

I did put together another quick conjuring of the patch, and I'm sure the IPS will change the Makai-Mura ROM this time.  (I tested it to be sure.)  I think I'll make IPS and BPS patches for the US English ROMs as well.

If you ignore the glitched title and ' play' then actually, this patch worked perfectly on the US rom.

I did full playthroughs of both Japan and USA during beta testing to meet the Halloween deadline. The two glitched screens of USA (1 title, 1 ending) were all I noticed and what I reported (images).


BlackPaladin already made the final release on-site.

Thanks again for beta-testing, BTW.  ;)

That report was what made me decide to release four versions of the patch:  two patches (IPS & BPS) for the JPN ROM and two patches (IPS & BPS) for the US ROM.

I hope everyone liked this little project of mine.  :)
