Today, MSX Translations updated their website with the following:

  • A new translation patch for Tengoku Yoitoko, a platformer which also features some RPG elements, will reveal what to do in this MSX2 game by Taito, released in 1987.
  • For the Spanish MSX fans there is a Spanish translation for Romancia (MSX 1), made by Sapphire. The MSX 2 version will follow later on.
  • A document has been put online which contains all the (remaining) help texts for Yoshida Konzern, a shooting game construction tool by MSX magazine.

@ hap: no more dunglish! New (fixed) version 1.0.1 available for download.

@ DemonSeed: Thanks for good words. We'll do our best to continue our quest.

Romancia in spanish works perfect in emulator but in megaflash with Ascii 16 mapper in Turbo R when you touch one cursor or Z to play the graphics of the scenario are corrupted.

Superb work again! I completely agree with DemonSeed!

<extreme nitpick>You changed the font for the numbers, but the 1987 in the title screen is still the original (indeed quite ugly) font</extreme nitpick>

@ manuel: np, I will make a special patch for the title screen text.

and btw if you start game in Japanese (hold HOME), you'll see old and ugly font there too Smile

Oh, another thing: why isn't turbo enabled by default? (Great to see your very prompt reaction, by the way!)

@ manuel: The updated version will start in turbo mode if available. And will have an optional patch for title screen.

Great! Are there particular parts where the turbo mode is very noticable?
