I didn't know the translation was available on the web. Can I include it on my rom version? Whom should I ask permission for that?

those files on that site are patches FOR the games. You still need some source disk/rom (backup or originals etc although its unwise to patch original gamedisks imho) to apply them onto.

I personally dont have those woomb translations, it would be nice if they became available/public domain at some point, but I dont know how that would work with copyright/legal issues etc

@ricbit Do you think you will be able to do a 2048K rom size ?

@ericb59 I can't do more than 2048k because that's the max amount in the mapper I'm using. Currently it has 1.2Mb with all three disks compressed inside it. I'll be using the extra space for extras (such as better pcm sound).

@syn Too bad, I don't feel like retranslating something that was already translated, but I'm open to integrate the current translation if authorized by the authors.

Sorry if i was not clear.
I asked for a 2048 K max rom, because this is bigger size i can do on real cartridge.
Your actual rom size seems to be a little more than 2048K (when i check the file size on my Pc)

Oh, it is exactly 2048K:

Here's another release:

http://www.ricbit.com/temp/aleste2.zip

I fixed Vampier's bug, which was a bug on the original game. If you press space during the scrolling part of the opening, the game will try to go to the splash screen without turing off horizontal irq, which resulted in either a crash or a corrupted screen.

I also modified the game over menu. In a rom version there's no reason to have separate "game over" and "title screen" options. Now, the game over option will always go to the title screen.

@ ricbit, this rom works with the new Carchano´s 2Mb megaram?

It works fine on some machines, such as F1-XD, but it doesn't work on others, such as the turboR GT. This is a not a problem on the ROM, it's a problem on the new megaram. Reportedly it uses HCT chips instead of LS, and this makes it incompatible with the timings of the turboR GT. Looks like you can make it work by plugging the new megaram into a slot expander before the GT, as this fixes the signal levels and timings, but I haven't tried it as I have no slot expander yet.

F1-XDJ doesn't work either. What should be the result if not working? I get the basic font on screen.
opfxsd doesn't recognize the rom type either...
