Quote from: Regalia776 on September 23, 2022, 09:56:36 AMA longtime lurker on this forum, just had to sign up to reply to this. And the answer is:Oh my god YES!Terranigma is literally one of the best RPGs on the SNES and easily one of the best of all time. The combat system, the setting, the deep and sad (for its time) story. It's probably the one game that got butchered the least by its original translation but could still very much be expanded and retranslated to bring it up to modern standards.I would already have several ideas that could be implemented to make the game better:- MSU audio is a given- Retranslation & fixing the font- re-insert the quiz that was cut from Neo Tokyo- Make it clearer early on that the magirocks don't disappear after use but can be re-charged. Too many players never used magic because they didn't want to waste their rocks and ended up never using them at all.- Re-balance Bloody Mary. Make her take more damage even that one level lower but give her more HP and let her hit harder.- Make the game 60Hz (a patch already exists for this)That's just what came to my mind right away. If you want to also add something to the game, my suggestions (though I'm not a hacker, so I cannot say how easy or hard it would be of course):- New Game +- Maybe add a location or two more. South Cape from Illusion of Gaia, perhaps? Africa is so empty in the game. I also think another level of development would be great for Litz since this town always felt like it should have had one more.- Maybe make Loire take a similar route with the drunkard Louis, just more run down?The town expansions were such an amazing feature of the game, that's why I mention them and locations here mostly. If those could be expanded somehow that would be amazing.If you need help with the game's text or with its lore in any way, you can send me a PM. I'm a fan of Terranigma since childhood, replay it every year and a remake/remastered release of it would be my dream come true. Looking forward to seeing what you can do with the game!
Quote from: Nintenja on September 23, 2022, 03:59:44 AMUse the above poll to answer...Does anyone want a definitive MSU1 audio version of Terranigma? This game is a snes hidden gem masterpiece...i think it needs a fan made definitive edition patch,as a re-release by Quintet Is probably never going to happen.thinking of calling it Terranigma-Hidden Gem Edition maybe?ive got a nice version I've been working on. Still testing alot and Final Fantasy V-Pixel Freemaster Has taken up a lot of time to get to version 3.0..haven't really dived super deep into this but there are a few nice patches already done for it but yeah I'm really thinking about it. Does anyone care enough to want this project to happen?or care enough to work on this project with me?You can download Final Fantasy V-Pixel Freemaster v3.0 from https://archive.org/details/final-fantasy-v-pixel-freemaster-v2.0You can also download Mario Kart-Super Circuit-Freemastered from https://archive.org/details/mario-kart-super-circuit-freemasteredDownload and check out those hacks for an idea of what I'm kinda trying to work on here.
Quote from: pleasejust on September 24, 2022, 12:40:04 AMTerranigma is ok. Great graphics and gameplay is not bad. But it's no masterpiece. I couldn't finish it. It's no Baldur's Gate or anything. Japanese RPGs are a joke since 1998 basically.
Quote from: Nintenja on September 23, 2022, 04:25:58 PMwow thanks for the post.glad you share an enthusiasm for this classic.you seem to be very well knowledgable about this game and an expert.good suggestions.u signing up to msg me this means alot.just what i needed really.and i appreciate it.im just starting to look at this game right now and have no idea how far or how long this will take to make this project or if anything what ill be able to make it into.not even sure what tools are available yet if any for this game but i have a personal version of this game i made with msu1 audio patched in with 60hz ntsc-8×16 font..bloody marry nerfed 33% hp..ark has blue hair like in the artwork. Some of this work was already done..it loads and msu1 works but i havent had time to playtest it bc i was working on super star wars trilogy testing with msu1 and difficulty adjustment,tmnt-turtles in time testing (prolly complete version 1),ffv pixel freemaster (version 3 now), and mario kart super circuit-freemastered (complete version 1)..would you want to playtest this version i currently have? See if its completable/bugs/ whatever else?
Quote from: Ok Impala! on September 24, 2022, 12:16:44 AMSurely! Terranigma is amazing, would love to create new level maps for that game if ever a map editor becomes available! If you are going to create tools yourself, be sure to share them here too! As for a re-translation. Someone is already working on that and is pretty far into the game already. Would be great if you two could team-up! Check it out at: https://twitter.com/TerranigmaR
Quote from: Regalia776 on September 24, 2022, 04:27:01 AMI'm currently on holidays, but I can get to play testing by Wednesday if you want. Would be glad to try!Ark's sprite being more like his artwork is also a neat little change that I approve of. A better font was also on my list, I forgot to write it down for some reason but I feel it goes hand in hand with a retranslation.As for Bloody Mary, I don't think she needs nerfing, but what she does need is to make the player feel they can actually damage her which is hard to do in the original version since most of the time you will just do 1HP damage. I would really just decrease her defense and increase her HP just a little or leave them as they are.

Quote from: Nintenja on September 24, 2022, 10:28:53 AMI may have a question or two for you in the future as well if that's ok.
Quote from: lilpuddy31 on September 24, 2022, 10:17:50 PMWhile I do approve of Terranigma getting the "Freemaster" treatment, can we get a retranslation of Illusion Of Gaia first?
Quote from: Nintenja on September 25, 2022, 01:57:54 AMYes someone needs to sink their teeh into this like right now..a new translatiom coule take some real time..honestly illusion of gaia has only gotten one hack apocalypse gaia...and thats just a final boss addition to the game..which dont get me wrong is a good and necessary hack..i havent played it but did patch together msu1 with it and have to play it through sometime..will be cool if it works and im pretty sure it can be properly merged by someone soon..
Quote from: Mrstealth85 on September 25, 2022, 02:05:12 AMActually a prototype English translation of Illusion of Gaia was found fairly recently with a script that is more faithful to the Japanese version. More information can be found here: https://tcrf.net/Proto:Illusion_of_Gaia/Text_DifferencesBeing a prototype, it is rough around the edges in more than a few places, but there's likely someone out there who can polish it up. It would be easier than completely retranslating the game from scratch, at least.
Quote from: lilpuddy31 on September 26, 2022, 12:41:34 AMI also found this...https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoqdJOVga77Bp2FnXfnrf8KhPoVuF1XehA YouTuber played through the Japanese original and translated the game using the closed captioning. I've only watched a little bit of it so far, could definitely use some polish
