Great improvement that works with French version as well!

Reviewed By: Brand.Newman on 22 Aug 2021

After reading some of the previous reviews, I applied the patch to both European and French versions of the game, then went into a hex editor to check what had been modified.

Turns out there were only two entries :

  • The title (which went from Terranigma “P” or “F” to Terranigma USA),
  • A single value that modifies the speed of the game (kudos for the creator to have found it).

I played both versions, and can confirm they run at 60 htz each.

So, does that mean they actually run “too” fast, and mess with the cutscenes?

Well, they don’t!

I played the Japanese and French versions of the intro side by side, and except for some occurrences when the screen would fade to black sooner because of one sentence being shorter in one language than the other, they basically respect the same timing.

Which we owe to Terranigma not being PAL optimized, apparently!

In conclusion, this patch is a “must have” for everyone: it makes you rediscover a game you love with the correct speed, and if you haven’t tried Terranigma yet, then you’re twice lucky!

Highly recommended.
