Hi, nerds. I have some screenshots to present to you.

This bulk of this project is completed, and I've transitioned the project to the testing phase. In other words, I'm looking for testers who can jump in on my Discord server! So far, I've tested the hack in BlueMSX and need some help running it in OpenMSX, which isn't friendly to me as a newcomer. It looks like I need to set up a hard disk file as I get the error "Fatal error: No disk drive A present to put image ".

No, you are trying to use a disk image with a machine that has no disk drive, I guess a C-BIOS machine. See https://openmsx.org/manual/faq.html#nodrive

Anyway, great to see a translation of this game is finally happening! Let me know if you need more help on openMSX use.

Thanks for the guidance. I think I'm good now. I got it working with a "Boosted MSX2+ JP" machine.

Oh wow, this is good news. Have you only tried it in emulation? Or have you tested on real hardware?

I've only tested the translation in the emulators OpenMSX and BlueMSX. There hasn't been any real hardware testing. I'm a little concerned that me storing the DTE table in the saydos MBR won't fly on real hardware.

Disk emulation in openMSX is pretty low level, so it should be indicative. Try different machines in openMSX to test with machines with different disk ROM and disk controller.

So what is the discord server where we can get a test version?

@manimani

Great news! Pretty pleeeease also add support for turbo machines in the patch, since this game is so slow.
