I've just spent some time playing with the patch, and I like what I've seen so far! At this rate, all that is left is translating the rest of the text, like level names, the secret minigame you get when playing with the wrong system card, etc.

Even considering all the work left to do, you've done good, Burnt Lasagna! :clap:

Sadly that my never happen.
The rest of the games text is actually in images. In order to translate it you would have find a way to extract the image, edit it and then try and reinsert it back in. This would be very difficult and I donít know how you would go about doing this nor does Cubanraul.

Feidian is the tool we used to start dumping & replacing the graphics.  We never got very far with it when the project kind of fell apart back in 2005.  I couldn't get any interest on the castlevania board to continue it (should have come here!) and it had been abandoned until you swept in to save the day.

If anyone is interested in giving it a shot Feidian is still available here:  http://feidian.sourceforge.net/  You will need PHP installed, not sure if it version specific though.  You will also need the PCE sprite tile definition:  http://feidian.sourceforge.net/data/pce16.php.gz

usage: feidian.php -cr pce16,10,1,0x57A300 dracx.iso 57A300

It was a lot of guess work for me to get good results and maybe someone here has more experience.

Hey cubanraul!

I remember seeing those instructions for dumping the graphics on your website a while back but I was unsure whether you had managed to successfully modify image and inserted it back in.

I can never get feidian to work. Originally it would just blow up into mess of text whenever I tried to start it with those parameters. Luckily I was able to fix that problem by replacing every “<?” at the top of FEIDIAN's source files with “<?php” and it started working normally. Unfortunately it still gives me crap about not defining the color depth.

I was able to get better results with a tile editor called YY-CH. Here is an example of what I was able to get done in less than 3 minutes, though I’m sure feidian would be easier to use in the long run. Yeah so I guess editing the games images may not be as hard as I originally thought. :D

I've played through this a bit, and I have a question. The english tracks have a bit of static, is that from the recording or is there something wrong with my burn of the disc?

No, they shouldn't have any static (does it do this with emulation also?). I remember getting a problem like this with the BIN/CUE patch if I didn’t rip it correctly, are you using this? If so, I recommend using the ISO-WAV patch and use the version of TurboRip that I included with the patch to rip the game.   

Hah!  This is great!  I'll help out with the graphics editing, if you need it.  :)
Thanks for your offer, but I may not need it. I plan to look deeper into modify graphics as soon as soon as the holiday commotion subsides for a bit (Happy Thanksgiving by the way! :D). I’ll let you know if I need any help though.

The TurboRip  version is certainly the better way to go.  Been using this tool for a few years now.  I have no static in my burned copy.

Burnt Lasagna: I'll rerip the game and give it a shot. I didn't use Turbo Rip on the first disc.

I can't get turborip to finish ripping my disc. It gets to 99% and then just sits there reading forever  :-({|=

What track does it stop at, is it the last one? Are you ripping from the disk or a mounted image? If it's mounted image that you downloaded it could be damaged, which is very common with TG16CD games.

I know all rips from imgburn (or any other program that's not CDRWIN or TurboRip) are going to be damaged since it places the tracks at the wrong LBA and will not enforces the PRE/POST-GAP rules for transitions between tracks.

I am using the real game CD that I own not a download of any kind. It stops on the very last track number 22.iso. Maybe it's my PC CD drive?
