Welcome! This page follows the updates on the Network Adventure Bugsite Translation Patch (currently in-active on Tulunk Village).

Progress on this patch has stalled due to required ASM hacks not being done yet and most of our time currently being eaten up by the OTHER patch.

The game itself can be best described as a combination of Pokemon and Megaman Battle Network (aka Rockman.EXE). The capturable mons are called "Bugs", and can be battled over the in-game Internet. It is the last of the Game Boy Color Smilesoft games and the technical prowess of the developers really shows off.

Version 27[edit]

Rolled by kmeisthax with contributions from Kimbles and DaVince

Alpha IPS: Beta IPS:

  • We now have a proper automatic formatter integrated into bvmasm. This autoformatter recognizes lines of text in dialogue and rewrites the instruction stream to support a longer or shorter message. It's even smart enough to recognize if a line of text has a character portrait or not. It cannot, however, autoformat system strings at all.
  • Story text up to the end of the Prologue is now translated to draft quality. This has been primarily done by myself, with support from the actual translation staff, so there are still a few lines here and there I need to rephrase better. This does not include NPC text, I've mainly just been translating from the top to the bottom of the text dump.
  • Existing attempts at translating story text have been adjusted to remove code changes. This does not visibly affect the actual game itself.
  • Some system strings have been adjusted; mostly around naming screens.
