Current Projects

Games that we are working on...

(12) NES

An traditional RPG but with action battles; third in the series...

Finding the pointer tables for this was extremely difficult, but DvD finally found the pointer to the first NPC!

Accomplished: Title Screen Hacked, Script Located, Pointer to first NPC finally found

Currently: aishsha translating what has actually been dumped
(24) NES

An action game; second in the series...

This controller localization has become so much more...
It's 100% ready for release, but I'm holding off because I started on major final enhancement.

Accomplished: Level editor can now save to battery and offers many options not originally available

Currently: Adding a completly new level editor that never exsited in the original game
(7) SNES
Battle Racers Title Screen
Battle Racers

A pretty fun cart racer for the SNES that uses the same DSP chip as Super Mario Kart (1 or 1B). It might be the only SNES cart racer not released in the US.

Accomplished: Uncompressed Graphics Translated/Hacked

Currently: Searching for Compressed Graphics
(18) SegaCD

Shining Force CD

DvD wants to make a hack of the NA release of Shining Force CD so that you can play the third scenario without the need of a SegaCD memory backup cart.

Accomplished: Almost nothing.

Currently: Trying to find the right set of tools or people to help

Cancelled Projects

Games that someone else translated completely before we got far enough to matter...

(9) NES
Esper Dream 2 Title Screen
Esper Dream 2

Aeon Genesis translated Esper Dream 2 before we got very far. No biggie, that just made the game more fun for me to play!
PC
Non Directional Translations's
GundeadliGne Screen
GundeadliGne

DvD completed most of the graphics hacking for this translation, before it had to be abandoned. All of the graphics behind the original text had to be regenerated to allow English text to be put on it. DvD recreated the graphics and added the new text. It was a very tedious task. Unfortunately it will never be released since the official translation can now be purchased. :-(
