How to translate a game?

Postby sulfuroxp » Thu Mar 29 2018 4:16pm

I want to translate some old games like SF Final Conflict (to spanish) or Image

What programs I need? What are the steps?

Gamegear games like that, may be annoying. Most likely a game is going to use some kind of text compression, so you need to understand how you can compress and decompress the text. Then you need to figure out and determine if you need to rewrite any of the games actual code, which can be even more of a pain. Your best bet is to contact z80 on this board, and ask him all that is needed. (He wrote the english patch)



I am moving this to the SF Gaiden FC topic to help you get more views.

LordOddeye has been working on an English remake of Final Conflict, and since it's an entirely separate program from the original game, that would probably be the easiest way to get FC in particular in Spanish. If you talked to him there might be some potential there.

Working on the original ROM itself is going to be really rocky unless there's already documentation of its layout available.
