Yes, boot one of the game disks with the SELECT key.

Thanks, but how do I exit that menu?

iirc that was by choosing the #00 tune above in the music player.

The patched ROM can still be downloaded from the links posted in the thread, but I'd like to try the conversion on the English translated version of the game.

So, does someone have the github files to create the ROM from the disks?

Maybe it is better to create an IPS for the V8 ROM version based on the disk translation?? Then again I don't seem to have a translated disk set of Aleste 2. If you are willing to share it (contact me through my profile) I can see if I can match the translations into the ROM.

I think it would be better if the github files are found and shared, there are some outstanding problems with the conversion and hopefully someone can fix them.
About the translation patches: I don't remember where I got my DSK images, but you can find the patches googling for "MSX IPS Patch Archive".

The copyright holders have requested Ricbit to take the files offline.

Well, from my experience, unless "someone" means YOU, there's little chance someone else appears and decides to fix those problems. That's how things work in small communities: unless we decide to do ourselves, there's little chance someone else will do it.

And I think there's a reason the author erased the github files. He doesn't want it to be available anymore.

Well, one of the most talented guys from our community offered to do for you the job you want to be done. Don't take me wrong, but if I were you, I would send the dsk files to him and offer any help that I can to him. I would not say "hey, search the net and find it yourself". I understand that you probably don't mean it the way I said, but believe me, that's the safest way to get him to choose another thing to do with his free time. Wink

No explanation was ever given, I don't know if what tfh wrote above is true but if it is...
Copyright owners of what? Compile died multiple times, their IPs have been parceled between multiple companies and nobody really knows who owns what.
And besides, tfh himself hosts the complete game in his File-hunter, so why "copyright owners" go after something they don't have any right (patch files) and don't go after the complete games?

The info I gave is enough to find the files, and everybody else can use it Big smile

TFH posted at the same time as I did, so I didn't read his post. Anyway, he explained well enough to me.
It doesn't matter who owns it. Someone owns it and asked the patch coder to erase it. That's why he erased it.

It is not enough. It only takes you to the IPS patches, but without the translated dsk files to apply the patches, those patches are useless.
