  • Instructions:
    • The ZIP file includes a transition path from v0.14 of the Quirino patch. No 1.1 transition patch was included because the Quirino 1.1 patch converts the ROM to 1.0.
      • This patch also assumes a headered ROM, since that was the format Quirino's patch used.
    • The from_jp folder includes .ips patches for Japanese headered and unheadered ROMs of both v1.0 and v1.1 of Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo.
      • To see which version of FE3 you have, open the ROM in SNES9x and check the Revision under File -> Show Rom Info.
      • To see if your ROM is headered, check the file size. A unheadered, untranslated rom should be 3 MB exactly, or 3,145,728 bytes. A headered ROM has 512 extra bytes(3,146,240 bytes for the total filesize). There is no difference in size between 1.1 and 1.0.
    • Apply the patch to an untranslated FE3 ROM. You can use a patcher like Lunar IPS or Flips, or put the patch file in the
      same directory as your ROM and give it the same name as your ROM. Most modern SNES emulators should support softpatching.
    • I only had a chance to do spot testing, so it's likely there are some issues I missed. Please report any bugs/other technical issues you find.
      Reporting issues specific to the 1.1 patch would be especially appreciated.
    • Please do not request any name changes or other script changes. These are out of scope for this project at the moment.
      The only exception is for cases of inconsistencies in different parts of the game.

Hey this looks really nice, could you provide some screenshots though? Otherwise this looks good and one day I may get around to playing it.

does it fix Marth's name coming out as "Mar" in certain screens? Or maybe that was only in a very old patch IDK.

 

Anyway, I'm really glad this is being worked on: FE3 is easily my favorite version of the Marth games, and I think it's kind of underrated.

That was fixed previously in Quirino's patch.

ah lol that shows how out of the loop I've been on this. I played it in like 2013 I think. Still glad to see more fixes coming in.

I was already working on a name fix and general fix to Quirino's translation, but I always knew there were many various problems besides the names. Nice work.

Just for reference, what size should a headered and unheadered v1.1 ROM be?

A unheadered, untranslated rom should be 3 MB exactly, or 3,145,728 bytes. A headered ROM has 512 extra bytes(3,146,240 bytes for the total filesize). There is no difference in size between 1.1 and 1.0.

Translated ROMs, on the other hand, are 4 MB in size.

Any chance of a version with the official, American names? That version came out later, and those names are used in all other Fire Emblem media.

It's not an important enough thing for me to change for this patch, so no. This patch was mostly about technical polish and internal consistency.

Okay, that's cool. I should have realized that falls outside the scope of the project, like the post says. I'm just glad to have any kind of upgrade for that patch.

Small update: since the patch was approved on RHDN, I've changed the download link to the RHDN page for the translation, as well as changing some instructions and adding screenshots to match the RHDN information.

The RHDN also includes a patch to transition from a ROM with Quirino's patch applied, if that's more convenient for some people.

So it turns out I derped and didn't include all the text at the end of Book 2, Chapter 3! I also completely forgot that the old patch had the wrong value for the boots in their description.

I'll submit the update to RHDN, but in the meantime you can grab it here. (FYI, once the update is live on RHDN, I won't promise to keep this link working or up to date)

I actually have an update! I somehow didn't notice before that the item slot number sometimes overflows the boundary box on the item list  in the preparation screen.

Turned out to be an easy fix, so the update is available on RHDN.

I don't know if this is just for me, but I tried putting this onto the rom I had on my computer, and whenever the combat screens open, the game freezes. I tested this on B1C20 and the second the screen changes for Medeus transforming, the screen goes black and the game freezes. I decided to try this on my main save where I beat the game and everything was fine until I went to start some combat,t he game froze again. I'm using SNES9X Version 1.60 and the rom I'm using V1.1 headered.

Can you screenshot the "Show Rom info" screen in SNES9X for the ROM without the patch applied?

Edit: On windows, it's on the menu  under File -> Rom Information.

Well, I somehow got it to work, but I'm going to try and I've been trying to replicate it to no avail, it seems to be working. Maybe I used the wrong patch? Seems fine now, sorry for the false alarm. Basically what would happen is on the map, things would be fine but once combat of any kind starts, the game freezes.

I encountered an issue when I put a unit in a tile where you can find hidden items, the game freezes but the music keeps playing. In chapter 3 of Book II, I had to skip the Iote's Shield since the game froze every time I waited there. I'm now in chapter 11 and I can't pick any hidden item because of the same thing.

Did I do something wrong? I'm using SNES 9X 1.54.1 and the game is being softpatched.

Apart from that, this got me into playing Mystery of the Emblem again, thank you so much!

Were you using a headers or unheadered ROM, and revision 1.0 or 1.1?

We're you using any unit in particular, or does the issue occur with any unit?

This is what SNES9X says, it's the 1.1 revision and has a header, apparently 😮

At first in Chapter 3, the game froze when I put Mallecia near the castle, then I found out that the Iote's Shield can be found there, so I tried with Julian and it also froze every time I tried.

Well, it looks like I derped and used an incorrect address in 1.1 ROMs for something related to hidden treasure.

The version with the fix is available on RHDN.

I know you're not changing names, but you fix name inconsistencies right? I found 2:

In Book 1 Ch 9, the boss Khozen calls Medeus "Mediuth" in his death quote.

In Book 1 Ch 13, Xane calls Marth "Aritia's prince" in his recruitment convo instead of Altea.

Medeus and Altea are said everywhere else except for these instances.

Oops, it's been a lot more than a week. Sorry, I just kinda forgot to put out an update.

Anyway, a version with the above inconsistencies fixed is now live on RHDN.
