MOTHER 1+2 translation
About four years ago I posted about why I translated the MOTHER 1 side of MOTHER 1+2 but not the MOTHER 2 side – basically, MOTHER 2 and EarthBound have a really messy text system that would’ve taken me forever to untangle. Jeffman’s been plugging away at the problem for the past few years, though, and finally things are looking up! If you recall, I did a basic menu translation f...Read More »
DragonDePlatino has released a new ROM hack for EarthBound Zero that changes the game in many neat, interesting ways! Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition aims to make Mother much more enjoyable for both Earthbound fans and those playing it for the first time. All enemy graphics, NPC sprites and tiles are be redrawn from scratch to be more faithful to the clay models. The goofy enemies are goofier a...Read More »
A few years ago I released a ROM patch that translates the MOTHER 1 part of the GBA MOTHER 1+2 release – you can check it out here. After releasing it, I got a lot of questions about translating the MOTHER 2 side too, but I explained that it would take a LOT of time and work and that I’d prefer to let someone else take on the challenge. For the past few years since that post, an EarthB...Read More »
Longtime fans of Starmen.Net and/or EarthBound Central probably recall the name Stephen Georg/xfis – he’s the guy behind so many amazing EarthBound projects over the years. He was even part of Fobbies Are Borange, which was a radio play of EarthBound, as well as the EarthBound Zero spinoff, Loids Are Not Christmas. The thing about Loids Are Not Christmas was that Stephen hadn’t r...Read More »
A few years ago, while working on the MOTHER 1+2 translation, I made a hack that turned my custom Easy Ring into a Hard Ring. Reid then played the game live for everyone to see here. It was a lot of fun to see in action! I realized that I never released a patch with the Hard Ring enabled, so here’s the latest build of the MOTHER 1+2 translation with the Hard Ring stuff activated. To use it, ...Read More »
Wowow, I finally made it to the other side of my move – I went from Old People Town, Florida to Tucson, AZ. It’s been crazy busy buzzy but a lot of fun – probably the highlight was getting to visit the Fangamer office and hang out with everyone. I’ll probably talk more about all that stuff later on, for now let’s get to the questions! (Also, if you’re just now t...Read More »
Currently my main computer and 99% of all my possessions are now being moved across the country, which makes it a bit harder to do EB Central updates. So, for the next week or so I thought I might do some question and answer-type updates to tide us over for a while. Basically, if you have any questions about EarthBound, MOTHER 3, MOTHER 1, EB Central, or whatever else, let me know in the comments ...Read More »
A nice fan e-mailed me the other day with some typo/error reports for the MOTHER 1+2 fan translation, so in the near future I plan to fix those and release an updated patch. But while I’m at it, I thought I’d make a public call for error/typo reports – so if you’ve found any typos in the latest patch or run into any problems, let me know! Now for some other questions: A f...Read More »
Rock has released a Latin American Spanish translation of my MOTHER 1+2 translation – you can check out the site here! Apparently it’s not 100% completed – some graphics still need to be edited and testing isn’t fully done, but you can check out the version 0.99 patch if you’re interested. Update: Here are some screenshots: ...Read More »
A number of other translations of MOTHER 1+2 are finished or nearly finished, here’s an update on two others. Brazilian Portuguese: 100% complete! This was done by Foffano and the other folks associated with EarthBound Brasil. I swear, that site impresses me more and more each time I check it 😯 Check out the site here, you can download the MOTHER 1+2 patch on the right sidebar. Mexica...Read More »
