Title: "Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes II"
Alt: "Dragon Slayer: Eiyuu Densetsu II"
Platform: PC Engine Super CD-Rom2
Produced by: NihonFalcom/Hudson 1992


Localization potential? Recently on a whim I decided to tinker! To my surprise, the text/print system was the ~SAME as Emerald Dragon! So, could I port the 8x12 font/mod work here also? YES!!! And voila!

#1) A first-look teaser of the Emerald Dragon [PC Engine CD] English localization project has been published!!!  8) Took YEARS to get here...

#2) I got an email from David Michel, the PCE/PC-FX emulator author, informing me I had won his PC Engine CD contest!!! How about that ?? Hard to believe he's still around and running contests at A really unexpected bonus! The game is Neo Metal Fantasy, a JRPG.

I think this works pretty good, although I'll have more OGG to WAVE extraction tweaks to implement soon to achieve perfection. To get you playing right now though, it's ready! :)

(The future tweaks I want involve skipping OGG extraction and decoding to WAVE by directly reading from the EXE and not first extracting the OGGs to the target folder (improved speed tweak) and other sophisticated tweak issues with the OGG decoder I want just in the name of perfection.)

If you have any creative ideas on what to title it, lemme know.

Ys2EpicBGMSoundMod.exe (My best idea so far and probably final)
Ys2EpicBGMusicMod.exe (Hmm, has potential, less characters, says the same thing)
Ys2RyoBGMSoundMod.exe (Alternatively maybe Ryo in the filename might make it more marketable)
Ys2RyoOSTMod.exe (Shorter alt)
Ys2RyoSoundMod.exe (Shorter alt)
Ys2RyoMusicMod.exe (Shorter alt)

"ys2c-altst.exe" <-- (Original, BORING idea by XXXSEED Cock-Flasher Jeff... See how someone might not give a shit?)

Beyond the Installer filename, there are the various internal titles I used:

'"Ys I Complete" Epic/Ultimate BGM Soundtrack Mod'
"Presenting: The Ryo Yonemitsu Epic BGM Soundtrack Mod!"
Upgrade Ys I Complete to the epic PC Engine/TurboGrafx-CD soundtrack, The Ryo Yonemitsu Cut!
"The PCE Turbo-Powered Ryo Yonemitsu Soundtrack Cut!"

Oh and prepare yourself for a bit of a Splash screen and classic voice-acting when you start the patch BTW, it's a special added touch I also thought of. :)

Ah yeah, I was reminded of that work a few years ago and I actually tried to rebuild the patchers again, make 'em a little better WITH the added bonus of a special love letter to XXXSEED Games and the psycho lying criminal cheat that you speak of, Jeff Nussbumin' "DeuceBag" (AKA XXXSEED's Cocky Cock-Flasher!), but I didn't quite get around to finishing it all up nicely...

Here's the Ys I Complete rebuild of it, I just uploaded for you a working, but unfinished copy as far as docs, and everything I wanted it to do. Regardless, it'll install the legendary PC Engine/TurboGrafx-CD Ryo Yonemitsu soundtrack just fine over the old MIDI default PC version.

I'll upload the old Ys II version tomorrow or if not later.

Thanks for stopping by again, been years! ;)

Kickstarter-triumph "Battle Princess Madelyn" Released - Inspired by the NEC SuperGrafx (December 6, 2018)!

Classic retro gameplay for a whole new era!

* Trü NEC SuperGrafx Origin Story: [Developer] Chris' daughter Madelyn loved to watch him play Daimakaimura/Ghouls ‘n Ghosts on his SuperGrafx which led to her wanting to be IN the game! So eureka, dad's solution was to make her the star of her own!!!

* With the retro feel of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3, this will conjure up memories of the arcade era with its Unity driven hand-drawn pixel art

* 10 levels with five stages each, they're replayable with no starting over (that is unless you want to)

* Two modes including story (by a professional children's author) and arcade (for the experts)

* Hidden collectibles with extra rewards, weapons are upgradeable depending on your armour, which you can find through the blacksmith in story mode

* Madelyn's pet ghost dog "Fritzy" acts as both a weapon and a way to solve puzzles, allowing the player to tackle boss fights and maneuver puzzles.

* Weapons are specific to certain areas, providing access to secret locations

Watched season one of a new NetFlix show, Altered Carbon, which may or may not be renewed. It has SciFi elements of Blade Runner, Matrix, Fifth Element, and some Zardoz given it explores quasi immortality if you're rich enough to keep clones around, periodically "back up" your brain contents to an implanted storage device, etc.

Season one is only 10 episodes so you can watch the whole thing over the weekend. I enjoyed it well enough although the plot could've used some more work. It's mostly a hardboiled detective/cop kind of show.

There are some SciFi cameos like the Max Headroom actor who plays a weird host of an underground fightclub ring, and Daniel Bernhardt who plays a type of relentless space cop/soldier - he's the cheap Jean Claude Van Damme knockoff who did "Bloodsport 2," and the main sunglass-wearing Matrix agent in "Matrix: Reloaded" since "Mr. Smith" went rogue.

Anyway, you won't be blown away or anything, I don't think, but it kept me very interested all the way through so definitely worth checking out for the casual SciFi movie fan. I give it a thumbs up!

Heya Shakku, yeah, cool, thanks for marketing it here! 100% approved! While I would've preferred the PC Engine Ziria CD was targeted first, so be it!

Anyway, good to see you stop by again, take care! :)

Hi WaveRider, surprised to see you wander about here again, heh heh. :)

Well, the first thing I'd say is to register on, that's one of the last hangouts for us PC Engine fans besides the Facebook groups and where you'll find some modders and other options.

Second, a guy called chop5 there used to make and sell these ribbon cable adapters that you slip on a PCE HuCard to circumvent the region lock. I dunno if these are still available but it's the cheapest option.

Third, you can find a modder to send your system to mod a US/Japan region switch. Steven Hanley, Shawn, BlueBMW, Keith Kourage are all good guys that can do that.

Finally there is the Turbo Everdrive flash cart, the one that rules them all! This is also my solution as I own one. You load the whole NEC library on a 2GB micro SD card, you got a US/PCE region switch, everything works, you can even patch some PCE games to English and try other fan creations, end of the story!

If you were registered years back on PCEFX, we had group buy efforts to buy Turbo Everdrives on wholesale if you can get 10+ people to join. It's $60 bucks for 10+, so the manager would collect all the money from the buyers, make the order with krik, and after receiving the bulk shipment, he'd ship each out individually. That's how we avoided the $79 retail or other mark ups like at game cave or whatever.

And that's all I got for a thorough answer... :) If I procrastinated I might never have responded to ya so I try to reply within days of seeing something if time permits.

"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me..." - Tom "WyrdWad" Lipschultz, xXxSEED Games (Nov. 8th, 2016, D.J. Trump Election Victory)Are republican customers "irredeemable" or "deplorable" to X.X.XSEED Games? Should they take their money elsewhere, are they unwanted, especially if they voted Trump??Has Tom-chan "The KKK Witch!" Lipschultz unwisely politicized his petty, criminal, unAmerican company, divisively pitting democrats against republicans in the Falcom fanbase? Will he ever be held accountable for all the times he has embarrassed XXXSEED?Hypothetical: Does a potential job applicant at XXXSEED face bigoted, political discrimination if he/she can be outed as republican? Is this out of the realm of possibilities considering Comrade Tom-chan's clear California blacklisting/blackballing/bigoted mentality? I honestly don't think so, and FYI, it's illegal under federal law, though I doubt he and most of his coworkers understand that...

"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me...'s impossible not to draw parallels between the Trump of today and the Adolf Hitler of the 1930s.
XXXSEED XXXCESS: Tom-chan plays the libelous Hitler card on Donald J. Trump! SHOCK!!!! A "cute" NightWolve=Trump=Hitler "equation" to boot, an "exceptional" election gift, all for yours truly! Thanks Tom!!! Love ya ole buddy!
Source: xXxSEED_Tom_Lipschultz_NightWolveTrumpHitler_Libel.jpg

Today, the unhinged meltdown by the criminal X.X.XSEED Games employee, Tom-chan "The XXXSEED Henchman" Lipschultz, is now complete! "President NightWolve" has officially been sworn in! History has been made! Let us move forward in the business of making America great again, no, GREATER than it has ever been and for ALL Americans! Let Love Trump ALL Hate! I am truly humbled, thank you and God bless you, God bless America!!!!!!! :P

Note: This lying, libelous Facebook post was never meant for your eyes... Comrade Tom-chan locked it for Friends-only, asked that nobody share it, but somebody betrayed him yet again (e.g. his deletion from Seldane's forum) by leaking a screenshot. Also, I've been assured by Wikileaks that the leaker is NOT Russian, NO government is responsible for this leak! We can't reveal our sources for their protection, especially now that XSEED has a psycho-stalker-doxer helping them, but we really don't want XSEED running around stoking Russia-phobia or blaming "Nazis" under their beds, etc... ;)

Background: Upon Donald Trump's Nov. 8th election victory, in one of the most diabolical defamatory tactics I've seen, the criminal employee at xXxSeed Games -- who criminally cheated/exploited/abused 4 Ys fan translation projects (by fans FOR fans, NOT corporations!) to unfairly, unjustly hijack 24,891 pre-translated strings -- took to his Facebook account to equate me/NightWolve to Donald Trump, before then equating Trump to Adolf Hitler, the WWII genocidal dictator who went on a world conquest and extermination spree!!! How original, right ? Everybody I hate is Hitler! SHOCK!

Realize the full diabolical nature of what this libelous criminal did... He's trying to exploit/harness all the ultra-partisan and divisive hatred for Trump (which has led to vandalism/violence/arson!) and redirect it right at my doorstep, and it worked, a psycho-stalker-doxer answered the call with a dox job after reading it, one of XXXSEED's Senran Kagura customers who in bizarre fashion also spammed me on Twitter with his pedophilia fantasies and an anime porn GIF, all to creep me out... He's a kindred spirit with Tom-chan who also recognizes the "importance" of protecting animated pedo porn to, you know, "protect real children..."

However, despite this whole unfortunate ordeal, in the spirit of unity, bipartisanship, building bridges, coming together after a tough election battle, I decided in magnanimous fashion to assure X.X.XSEED Games on Twitter that I, ladies and gentlemen, intend to be a president for ALL Americans! ALL Americans, whether in red states OR in blue states as there is ONLY the United States of America!!! :P

"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me...'s impossible not to draw parallels between the Trump of today and the Adolf Hitler of the 1930s...

...And for the love of all that is holy, please stop calling Hillary Clinton 'Crooked Hillary.' Set an example for the American people: don't use derogatory nicknames just because you don't like someone. if nothing else, it's rude and disrespectful.

Expert Analysis: Tom-chan equates NightWolve to Trump, then Trump to Hitler, a NightWolve<=Trump<=Hitler "equation" if you will... "Calling" your target Hitler versus "equating" is a distinction without a difference! He played the libelous fearmongering Hitler card! AND THEN!!! Seconds later, he demands YOU stop calling Hillary Rotten Nixon "Crooked Hillary" to set a good example for manners... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! How about Tom-chan first stop equating the republican targets of his political Far Left hack wrath to "Hitler" because he doesn't like them ? If nothing else, it's not only rude and disrespectful, it's libelous character assassination/defamation on a FAR GREATER scale than something like "crooked..." MASSIVE cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy 101, brought to you by XXXSEED Games!

If manchild Tom-chan wants to levy *rational* criticism on Trump's policies, he can do so without invoking Hitler but he wants to spread fear, hysteria, panic, paranoia, and hatred for the president (AND FOR ME)... If he feels Trump is a demagogue, say so, but why become a demagogue yourself to "expose it" and skirt libel laws in the process by invoking a WWII genocidal monster ?? These and MANY MORE questions he'll never have to answer for... He also tried to hide behind acknowledging Godwin's Law, the weasel that he is, which is about stopping reckless/perpetual Hitler libel/insults - we call that having it both ways!!! Comrade Tom-chan...he's a special, exceptional breed, that's for sure! THE "exceptional testicle" of the localization industry... Quite interesting he was thinking of me on election night and donated this unhinged rant to Facebook, heh...

2020 - What does Brittany Avery (Hero Hatsuu) have to say about Tom-chan "the KKK Witch," her former co-worker, after both were fired in late 2018 ? Well, we have the Falcom discord to thank for these revelations:

1) Brittany says Tom Lipschultz is a "top tier moron" that "should've been fired years ago..." OH MY GOD, YESSS! I know I've been saying it for years, but to actually get confirmation someone INSIDE XSEED felt the same is incredible!!!

2) Brittany says she called Tom "an asshole" to his butt-ugly disgusting face, said never to speak to her again being very furious with his protest warrior stunt of leaking the "KKK Witches" joke that unintentionally references a US terrorist group but was merely meant as a word play on "NKK Switches," a company in Japan, with no idea by the developer what KKK can mean outside of Japan!

Rebuttal Forthcoming. I hate to spread his libel before defending myself, but I'll eventually address his lying and distortions when mood and time permit me. I have decided to conclude Tom-chan is just as much a sociopath as Jeffrey the Cocky Cock-Flasher is given the same delusional denials and pathological lying liar behavior that this manchild engages in.

Hi Shakku, glad to hear my promo post might've led to a purchase, the $10 sale price is over though (back to $15). I also purchased the SNES30 Gamepad made by a few days ago for Shovel Knight, and it seems good (is very close to the original SNES version), though I had trouble booting it in keyboard mode which offers the most compatibility with games as opposed to standard USB joystick mode.


Prepare to taste justice...SHOVEL JUSTICE that is!! :) For only $9.99 at while on sale ($5 off from the regular price), why not ??

I had been wanting to buy this game for some time now after playing it at Best Buy many months ago and found myself actually! It's more than just a nod to classic retro gaming goodness like Megaman, Zelda II, etc. it actually had help from the original Megaman composer, Manami Matsumae, who wrote 2 tracks for it!!! This heavily influenced my decision to buy it, even though I'm very backlogged and rarely make time to play a game in full (barely one per year).

Can you dig it ? I SAY AGAIN, CAN YOU DIG IT ?? You know, the last knight that made fun of his shovel, well, he's not laughing anymore, let's just put it that way... :P

So, funny enough, while visiting my GOG account to actually make the purchase, I noticed I had Inbox notifications and I found 2 people had messaged me about "good ole" XSEED->XGREED Games... Hah!! You can read what I wrote in full at my special donation to XSEED, my boycott page:

The unjust criminality of Tom Lipschultz, Jeff Nussbaum, Ken Berry Wrong, etc. under the banner of this "X.X.XSEED Games" outfit has NOT gone unnoticed folks! You can't fool all of the people ALL of the time, most especially with the mountain of bullshit "excuses" that Tom has concocted and showered the Internet with to defend all the shenanigans that transpired! These people really are petty, disgusting and I've never seen anything like this embarrassing company before...
