    Don't want this name associated with ROM hacking, but it was my discord name on the Pokémon mini server when USC made this, so I've changed it to the name I use here and added some context

    Just to make it clear which patch does what.

Karnov

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

KARNOV, the fire-breathing Russian, is seeking the lost treasure of Babylon. He runs, swims, jumps, climbs and flies through nine levels of game play. Countless bizarre enemies of various sizes and strengths are out to prevent KARNOV from finding the treasure!

Translation Description:

This patch is supposed to be complete. Kitsune did all the hacking, with some help from RedComet for locating the pointers. It was translated by Eien Ni Hen, so expect a quality translation.

Kitsune did not manage to get all endings though, so they are untested. If you see something wrong with the ending let him know, so he can fix it.

As of version 1.10, all text has been tested and checked, thanks to z80 gaiden and company. They provided a cheat code which allowed Kitsune to test the endings, and in the process, found a display bug on the intro, which is now fixed.

The Great Fire Breather Restored!

Reviewed By: Kallisto on 18 Jan 2022

All that was implemented into this romhack has indeed been restored to Karnov, but while playing I did encounter emulator issues, but playing this with the right emulator will get this romhack working correctly.

To know if its broken you’ll notice immediately the 1st level becomes garbled, proceed to use another one to get this one working.

I say this game has aged somewhat unfortunately due to some imbalances, it would be good if someone could combine this romhack with some improvements sometime in the future.

Version 1.10 Recommended - Yes
