I know that there was a previous attempt by someone to translate the ROM, but they stopped for some reason. In fact, I think they, at least at one time, visited this board. I can't recall their name, though.
The game is an MMC3 with 128K PRG/128K CHR, and was made by TEMCO in 1991. If there is a standard code that Temco used that could be checked out, or if someone has the ROM and is willing to look, can you tell how to add text boxes? It would be greatly appriciated. I know that the mouth and text speeds are controlled by hex codes.
Curse you, evil RF shielding! CURSE YOU, I SAY!
