Game Description:

Flashback is an action adventure game for the Super Nintendo.

Translation Description:

This patch translates Flashback for SNES from English to Spanish. It needs to be applied to a headered PAL / European ROM, to the version of it that includes 2 languages: English and French (ROM CRC32 checksum: 5DAFAC3E); not to the one that includes 3 languages: English, French and German. This will produce a patched ROM that completely replaces the English text to Spanish language, with all its special symbols and characters (¡, ¿, ñ, ü and accents). This patch also adds accents, “ç” symbol (called cedille) and lower case letters to the French text, since the original version of the game just included lower case letters into the English text, printing the French dialogs on screen just in uppercase letters with no accents, as a way to solve and avoid the need to include special symbols in the limited space for the ASCII table graphics (instead sacrificing unused symbols, like asterisk, “@”, “#”, etc.).

The text has been translated from scratch by Rod Merida, from Crackowia group, in the year 2002 (being one of his very first ROMhacking projects). A recent review of the script has been done, tested by Vicks Dg and Rod Merida himself, in the year 2020, with minor corrections.

Due to the fact the PAL ROM was the original version of this game, since its creator, Delphine Software, is a French company, and since it was a port from the version of Flashback for Amiga, designed to work at 50 Hz, this project has given priority to the translation of the PAL version (that benefits from the full TV screen, as opposed to PAL counterparts of many other games whose very first version was NTSC, either Japanese or American). However, future updates of this project might include extra patches for translating the NTSC 60 Hz ROM (intitled as “Flashback - The Quest for Identity”), as well as 3 languages PAL ROM.

Also there exists a version of this translation for Mega Drive.
