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.

Thanks again for an amazing (and amazingly fast!) translation Hilltop! Looking forward to playing this through soon.

You have your eyes on any other upcoming projects at this time, or taking a break?

I know this is a psx game, but I tested it out on a psp 3000 and during gameplay it runs at like 2 frames per second. Will this be fixed or should I stick with a psx emulator
