@sd_snatcher: I hear you. Indeed, I have no clue what's left to do to increase the game compatibility... I already changed it to switch pages using the primary and secondary slots (inside the game it was only using the primary slot register) - and that didn't help much.

As for the Japanese MSX problem: doing an OUT&HFC,0 : OUT&HFD,1 : OUT&HFE,2 : OUT&HFF,3 shouldn't initialize the mapper? OR did I completely miss the point?

Also, for those who wants to know a little more about how to play the game, the World of Spectrum has a nice page for the game, which includes the english manual!

Oopps: I inverted the values above - its OUT &HFF,0 : OUT &HFE,1 : OUT &HFC,2 : OUT &HFD, 3
But still, same problem - the game goes to the initial menu, but after choosing a level, it writes "loading" on screen and hangs :/

Little by little, I'm progressing with this!

I found out how to change the position of the word "Forza" in the "Info" screen, to correctly fit the translation "Strength", just like in the original Smile

Now I just have to find out why the power bars overflow into the left side of the screen if they're too big (that also happens in the Italian version, but not on the original on speccy).

someone told me the Slotman "translation" also provides infinite credits for buying weapons and armor

the real question is:
why ruining an excellent game like that? Eek!

I guess the trollers took the fun out of the project.

Whoever told you that, have no clue what he's talking about.

As for the release... I completely forgot about it! oO

I did release the translation on MSX Rio last year, and everybody there could get a CD with everything I've made, including this translation Smile

Thing is: the game won't run on every computer - it does require mapper and since it access the mapper directly, it is very incompatible with a lot of MSX models. The game would need a full rewrite to run on every MSX system. But this translation at least works on more machines than the original...Smile

While the game isn't released, I'll hijack the topic to show you guys another game... B-)
(there are even more things implemented in my version - like a password system for every level, coolcolors on MSX2 and up, fade's between screens and stages... really a lot have been done on this!)
