That's what I'm afraid of Tom Smile

I'm gonna look at doing it tonight. Sorry I haven't been on IRC in a while, been to tired taking care of my son but he seems to be on a schedule so I'm slowly trying to get back into things.

I'm thinking it also could be due to an interrupt happening in the middle of it... I can't remember if I asked you or Dave (I'm guessing Dave Smile but gonna try putting in a sei and whatever the other one is to disable them *crosses fingers*

It works great on Mednafen and I guess any other emulator at least Very Happy

And I prob should go into detail on what I did (it's actually a pretty generic routine Smile

I have a copy of the $E060 bios routine that I have located in a bank that's always loaded (or should be... it's actually the bank the text routine is in Smile. Nothing has been changed in this except for positioning of where to get the font at (which is located in this same bank) (I need to slim it down but I'm lazy.. Wink

It runs through this to pull letters. It does EXACTLY the same thing as the normal one does 'cept get the font from a different place. After this runs it stores the letter in RAM.

The next routine I call is before the print to screen routine which grabs this letter, shift however much it needs to be shifted to the right to fit it on the tile with the previous letter. It also saves the overflow into a space in RAM really far in so hopefully I won't overwrite anything *crosses fingers*. This code also increments the tile itself if need be.

It then calls in the regular print routine with the modification in that it doesn't increment the tile position (only the routine above does).

The only other routine that's called is the end of line routine which passes in a space to my custom $E060 routine which then runs through the above, this ensures the last bit of the letter gets printed off before moving to the next line (laziness for the win! Smile

And that's it. Nice and simple Smile I don't mess with any of the printing stuff (setting VDC or anything like that). Figure it can handle that for me Smile

Oh yeah! The only other thing I added was the ability to use ASCII, it converts ASCII to SJIS.

Below is my E060 code and VWF code and EOL code. Anyone can use this so feel free. Just wouldn't mind a mention if you do. Also the VWF code is somewhat specific in the beginning but mostly it's generic. Any questions feel free to ask Smile

Tom, if you see anything below that sticks out that may cause the issues on the real hardware lemme know, thanks!

Also this adds the SEI/CEI instructions, hopefully that'll fix it Very Happy

There's a problem with this. You don't know if the code that originally lead to the print routine already did SEI or not. It's an unknown state you'd have to test for. I mean, you might not want to CLI if the part of the code needs to stay in SEI mode.

Here's the work around:

PHP
SEI
NOP

.
.
.
.
PLP <-at the end

If you replaced the VRAM upload routine or are calling it, might want to do the above and see what happens. You don't want it for ALL of your print routine - just the part that writes to the VDC.

That's a safe approach and you don't need to know the state of the I flag before hand. But, your problem could be any one or a combination of things.

Also, if you have data in a different bank that you're accessing from your code bank - interrupt routines can change this on you, etc. So disabling interrupts, mapping in the bank even if it seems there all the time, is good debugging practice (I had this problem with Cosmic Fantasy 4 - both chapters that I did an generic roman print routine for. Sometime the bank that was supposed to be there - wasn't and would cause the game to freeze. Or corrupt. I saved the bank I wanted onto the stack, then mapped in the bank that would normally be there just in case. Fixed the problem).

I finally got my copy of the game, and I used Nightwolve's Turborip to rip the game to my hard disc, and I applied the patch with no difficulty at all. I only had time to play it for about 30 minutes, and from what I could see so far, it is a truly great game, and the translation looks great too. Tru, I want to thank you and everyone else involved once again for doing such an excellent job on the translation. You are a gentleman and a scholar. Also, I have one question for anyone who knows. I'm not sure if one exists, but is there a text file anywhere that translates the spoken dialogue, like the one for Ys IV? Thanks in advance.

Definately a possibility... but I think since this patch was done through machine translation, I will hold out until we get the human translation... it would avoid any confusion with a conflicting storyline...

Glad you like it duke4711 and everyone else...

Hey Tom,
Sounds good I'll try some of that. I haven't changed any of the print routine (we'll, minor changes. Basically I took out the increase of the position that it called).

I'll try those suggestions as well...

I'll try getting on IRC tonight as well depending on how tired I am (staying up a bit late getting some other projects going too... Lady Sword anyone? Smile ) to chat with you about this too. If you want I can send you the iso with the changes on it so you can see it in action on your end as well, can't hurt as maybe you'll see something you recognize from your previous encounters with this stuff (never know Very Happy ). Thanks!

Hey Tru, I found some untranslated dialogue that I thought you should know about. I wish I would have remembered to take a screen shot. Anyway, it's in the part where you first talk to King Kyle right before the other guy comes running in. There are about four untranslated screens. Other than that, the whole thing has been great. It's a good game with a good story so far.
