Update By: Gideon Zhi

Aeon Genesis has, after four long years, released a translation patch for the NES RPG, "Dark Lord." It's complete, so play and enjoy!

Also, an update to Guardian of Paradise (PC) has been released that fixes the blank, crashy text box in the desert area. Further, new screenshots for Esper Dream 2 (NES) and Madara (NES) are available on their respective project pages at Aeon Genesis both games are currently being playtested and should be released soon.

No diss intended, just a bug report: Dark Lord crashes if you press select at the entry screen to see the stats of a character.

reproduce:
- start the game
- create a random character
- register this character? yes
- create another? no
- form party
- cursor should now be at the character selection table, press select to crash :P

(doesn't apply to untranslated version)

Does anyone know if there is a translation of the job stats table out there? Unless I am missing something, the one that came with it the table itself is still in japanese, so I have no clue which jobs or skills are listed.

Well I just beat the thing, so I guess it wasn't all that necessary.  Pretty fun game!

For some reason, i can't get this translation to work.  I used IPSWin to patch it, and FCE to try and play it, but it still comes up with Japanese text.  I'm not using the overdumped version of the rom...

Should I be using a different IPS patcher?  or emulator?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure your rom isn't read only, and that it's not in a zip when you're trying to patch it. Also, I recommend Lunar IPS instead of IPSwin; I've heard of folks having issues with some patches when IPSwin's used.

Thanks.  Using Lunar IPS worked great.

It's confirmed.. IPSWin is a piece of crap. Perhaps I should remove it from the site.

NINJA also supports IPS files.

I like NINJA. When I finally get around to finishing off my SF1 translation patch, I think I'm gonna go for an RUP-only release. ^_^

If you do, be prepared for many a n00b to email you or maybe that's just for DBZ translations...

I wonder how many people will actually download a Silvanian Families patch, regardless of the patch format  ::)

I'm guessing...five. And I'm being generous. Though I think I've helped to make at least one budding emulation fan over on the SFCCE forums, so the rest of you can only benefit. ^_^;

The first game really isn't all that good, though I'd like to think my dialogue would be a good reason to at least give it a shot. XD Later games are much better...none of them are exactly a MegaTen or SRW, but the soundtracks on the GBA games somehow give me a vibe like the original Harvest Moon. Your mileage will vary, but try this:

You'd be surprised checking the SFCCE boards...the overall intelligence level seems comparable to these forums, although I guess being a GameFAQs user for over four years rather extinguishes your faith in humanity. Or maybe it's the disproportionate number of non-American posters. There's even one guy there, SeraphMichael, who's also an avowed Shin Megami Tensei fan (should've guessed it from the name)...

THANX for translations!
btw i have found a glitch in darklord. its really helpful glitch but still..... if one character of yours dies and you rty to revive him at the church you will be told to donate 50 gold. do it although you dont posses it. still you will be revived. it really helped me to get past first scenary.
also links given in the patch documents doesnt really help. i dont really need a faq for this game but all of them is in japaneese, except first page.

As far as the document thing goes, that's intentional. The pages not packaged in the zip contain massive spoilers that can totally break the game for you.
