    I have been working on this game for about two weeks now and it looks like the hacking work is mostly complete, however I have no played through the entire game to verify if I've missed anything.

    As you can see from the pictures below a Variable Width Font has been inserted and it's working perfectly.

    All the remains is the text so if anyone is up for translating the text for this game into english, There is approximately 320KB of text which includes control codes and some automated comments. The text is also split into multiple files based on the various pointer tables so the text in each file should all be related. Send me an email at normmatt234@gmail.com if you're interested.

    You can see the current status of the project along with all of the project files on github.

    Hello,
    has the translation for this ever been completed? I would so love to play the game but I don't understand Japanese.
    (Also sorry for bringing up such an old topic.)

    Your git client likely changed the line endings.... I think it has to be either windows or linux style to work... Try changing the line endings of the .tbl files and .txt files

    Hiya folks, Pablitox at romhacking.net linked me here, and if this project is still going, I'd be glad to hop in and give translating text a go. As long as the tools are there and I can figure out how to get the text in, I'd love to help out on that end. I'll take a look at the tools on the github, and feel free to let me know what's going on!
