Alright, time for an update.
Final Mission - I'd like to do a 4th of July release and it looks like I might be able to finish the hacking in time for it. I haven't done anything for a few days now, but one of the one hacks left is to hack the timing of the intro and ending. I've yet to do that and my only clue so far is that it appears that the timing's fixed when changing from screen to screen. It also occured to me that I could increase the text speed, but I don't think that would do the job completely.
Mirai Shinwa Jarvas - I am currently in the midst of finishing up the hacking work for the final patch. So far I've disabled the checksum so I could replace the number tiles, expand some menus and dialogue boxes and I am in the middle (Well I'm at the beginning of the game) of a playthrough to discover if anything needs to be hacked. I will be devoting most of my effort to finish this game. And I'm already having problems figuring out what to do. This will probably be done when I eventually beat the game.
Ganbare Goemon 2 - As much as it pains me, this game is priority #3. Although I might pull it out and do some work on it when I get bored with my other projects every now and then. Assuming I don't hit any roadblocks with this the other two projects, I'm confident that I can finish this game by the end of summer.
And that's what's going on. I actually don't have any other projects right now and it will continue to be that way until at least two are finished. I'll be able my proejcts sooner that way, hopefully.
Final Mission is now very close to completion. I found the code for the timing and I have the intro (That's where the bulk of the text is) mostly hacked with one issue remaining for it. I'll be doing the ending next and there's a two things that I have to do in the credits.
Also I'm looking into a hack for Jarvas that's inspired by the fact that that the game doesn't add the weapon and armor stats to the strength and defense stats. I'm pretty sure it doesn't so I'm looking for the data right. Also found out how to progress in the game, but doing so gets me insta-killed by a grey knight of doom. Well, I've got another option on how to proceed though.
