    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Almost Perfect Restoration - Updated

Reviewed By: Lodan-Zark on 16 Sep 2017

The cheats works fine, but there are 2 little things that are missing to be perfect: fixing the checksum, and be able to face the secret final boss in the normal difficulty as Japanese counterpart.

UPDATE: All Issues got fixed ;)
