Start New Game!

So, I’m teaming up with Dungy Dragon (and his wife :P) to translate the “Ultima: The Savage Empire” SNES ROM into Engrish… wish us luck, we are gonna need heaps of it!

This will be a great challenge… the technical efforts are far from straightforward, but that’s the fun! traditional romhacking methods won’t work so this will require lots of patience and probably building off some custom tools.

So far I’m mostly fleshing out my ROMHacking skills, remember a bit about Japanese scripts and bugging out Dungy so we can start off somewhere…
