Shalom MSX2 remake - screenshots

Topic: Remakes

In this forum topic, graphic designer and MSX enthousiast atrusyan suggested towards a possible remake of the adventure game Shalom by Konami. The idea is to keep the feeling of the original but improving the visuals by adding MSX2 sprites and colors, similar to the overhaul treatments which games as Alien 8, Knight Lore and La Abadí­a del Crimen ("The Abbey of Crime") got a while ago. Also, rearranging the music to support SCC and to fix some bugs found in the original version is intended to be part of the facelift. In order to achieve this, atrusyan is still looking for a coder and a musician, so be sure to drop him a line if you happen to be one (or both) of those, and like the prospect of yet another nice remake of an MSX classic.

You should talk with Ricardo Bittencourt (Ricbit). He translated this game to Portuguese years ago. I'm not sure if he would be willing to help you in your project, but he is skilled enough to help you. Besides, he knows a lot about this game (and I believe its inner workings too).

Cool! If you are intending to update the gfx, it might be interesting to fix a few map bug/ map inconsistencies as well. There are 3 I know of off the op of my head. Are you also planning to fix the glitches that sometimes occur in the English version?

Looks like this game has been finished now, but any change the MSX2 enhanced one will also be available for the English (or Japanese) version?

Oh yeah, you're right. It is released! Thanks for the hint Sander! I found it here after looking a bit more:

The English version is also included as it would seem, just not the Japanese one.

According to the READMe it's not a remake but only these things changed:

This is a patched version of SHALOM (RC-754), which allows:

- 99% translated Japanese to English game.
- Extra features in MSX2.
- Fix Save/Load Game in DSK

Game state will be saved as a 62 bytes sized file (SHALOM) at the default
available drive (usually 'A:')

DOS2 and massive storage devices are allowed as long as you do a "warm boot"
from the drive/directory where the save-file will be located.

[] Extra MSX2 features:

- New MSX2 palette if key is pressed while loading the game.
- 60Hz switching if key is pressed while loading the game.
