ROMulan Data Extractor/Injector Utility Released
25 February 2011 1:09AM EST - Update by Stealth
A new utility with a simple interface, but powerful functionality. Through the use of scripts that describe the layout of the target game file, it eases the re-integration of edited data by automatically relocating data that has grown in size, and updating program and pointer list references to the data. It is also capable of batch operations such as the initial extraction of the data, and the calling of external conversion utilities immediately after extraction, or immediately prior to injection.
For more feature information on the “Batch” and “Inject” files, see the documentation

Silva Saga II translation assistance needed again.
20 February 2011 5:20PM EST - Update by KingMike
Unfortunately, it looks like aishsha won’t be able to finish translating Silva Saga II for the Super Famicom, due to timing and other circumstances. Dynamic Designs estimates around 75% of the text is finished between Akujin and aishsha’s work. They are looking for someone willing to finish off the rest. Though it seems aishsha will be assisting D-D in ensuring that, in the end, names and such are consistent with aishsha’s own translation of Silva Saga I.

New Final Fantasy VI Hack Includes Harder Gameplay & Comprehensive Changes
05 February 2011 5:56PM EST - Update by Gogo13
A brand new Final Fantasy VI gameplay modification has been released, complete with sweeping changes across the board:
- Much harder enemies
- New damage curves, HP curves, MP curves, and XP curves.
- Vast changes to monster AI, skills, and hero skills such as spells, espers, Lores, Swdtech, Blitzes, Dances, Tools, and Rages.
- Entirely new items, from the slightly different to the game-changing and super-powerful
- New spell animations
- Hero stats have been changed, with a focus to make each hero a competitive choice
- Lastly, the Colloseum has been completely redone, with every item yielding a viable foe and progressing to better items.
Even more surprising is the supporting documentation. A bestiary, a table of the new XP, HP, and MP curves, and even the excel file used to make the game (with way more information than anyone would care to read) is included.
If you love Final Fantasy VI, and have yearned for the challenging and complex game it should have been, be sure to give this new mod a look!
Verve Fanworks Celebrates the Year of the Rabbit With "Castle" Recruitment Drive
04 February 2011 5:16PM EST - Update by FaustWolf
When we think about the history of the Chinese videogame industry, all too often visions of pirated NES games come to mind. If you dig a little deeper, however, you’ll find a ton of gems the English-speaking world missed out on. Among these were Dynasty International’s “Tian Di Jie” series, for Windows. Why these were never picked up by a Western publisher boggles the mind, but hey, that’s where the fan translation community comes in!
Thanks to a veritable army of source language fans – who have contributed everything from utility programming to organizational skill to touched-up equipment art – a translation project for the second game in the Tian Di Jie series has thrived over the past year. The Verve Fanworks community still needs a ton of help to push this one through, including:
- Traditional Chinese-to-English text translation help. The multi-pass system has worked well for us so far, so we’re keeping an eye out both for people who have fun roughly translating tons and tons of dialogue, as well as those who only have time to provide revisions and second opinions.
- Pixel art for small elemental and equipment icons.
Join the awesome team behind this mammoth project, or just stop by and say hello, at our forum link at the bottom of this news post. We’ll leave you with some extra pics and a demo of the first three translated chapters of the game, roughly the first hour of gameplay.
Don’t hesitate to leave feedback, either here at the RH.net news thread or in the project’s “General Discussion” board at Verve Fanworks!

Animal Forest N64 Translation
30 January 2011 7:10PM EST - Update by Pennywise
I thought I’d get the word out that an Animal Forest translation project has been in the works for what appears to be several years. A lot of work appears to have been done on the game and I think it deserves some attention since serious N64 translations don’t happen every day.
