I read the readme for that, and I have a question. Don't other NES translation IPS' expand their ROMs without needing a separate tool?

Just guessing, those patches that expand the ROM, I think they basically paste a whole section of the ROM at the end of the original. Makes it easier for the end user I suppose.

Finally - I'll know how the hell to get out of that stupid house.

The mazes ruined the game for me from the start. :-\

NOT the card battle system.

Clarifying what Pennywise said, almost all NES mappers require the last bank of PRG-ROM (usually the last 16KB) to remain at the end of PRG-ROM, so extra ROM space must be added before that. (so thus the last bank of PRG-ROM, as well as the entirety of CHR-ROM, if present, is relocated in the ROM file)
(because the 6502 expects to find vectors (pointers) to the interrupt routine, as well as the reset/start point of the code at the end of the 64KB address space, so most mapper designers found it easiest to permanently map a specific ROM bank to that point)

OH MY GOD!!

I never expected this game to get translated!!! thank you guys so much! Now all we need to complete the NES saga are
Dragon Ball 3 and Dragon Ball Z2 to be finished!!!

God bless you for releasing one of my favorite NES games by far!! I tried to get through using  a translation guide now I can relax and play without that bull which got me stuck eventually anyways!!!!!
