In July BiFi, maintainer of the MSX IPS Patch Archive, has been busy with updates. Translations got added and perfected, while other games got some visual updates.

  • Infinite's Montana John and the Templar's Treasure got a 1.1 release of the password entry patch and also the ASCII8 type patch got updated.
  • Hap's Sega Master System to MSX patch for Bomb Jack also found a place in the list of patches.
  • Deltasoft's English translations of Sorcerian and Feedback got added.
  • BiFi updated the editor of King's Valley 2 making it more flexible by for instance allowing doors and trap stones to be placed more freely.
  • Knightmare Gold R3 received various patches too, including proper SCC+ and ESE SCC support. On top of that DOS1/DOS2 support on the turbo R got fixed.
  • The Maze of Galious got a cosmetic patch bringing back missing shadows and some other graphical fixes.
  • More visual fixes were applied to Quarth's end-of-stage and title screens.
  • Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 received some linguistic updates. On top of that Metal Gear 2 received some graphics fixes, as well as making the Turbo patch compatible with the PANplus patch.
  • Last, but not least, the README.TXT of the English translation patch of Compile's Golvellius got updated.

Metal Gear 2, the [LUCKY STRIKERS] is with brackets... why not double quotes as all other texts?

Ooops, did you try to run Sorcerian (English) using EP.COM?
Using kana (F7) + any key won't stop the game to change the disk, so it's impossible to load or save a game!
It's the first game I find that doesn't allow to change disks with kana + key using EP.COM

About this. I download the translate for RM3. It´s the same version from some years ago. The enemies appear with 0 point from HP and when you won the gold is to the maximum. This is a bug? Isn´t funny to play.

Bom Jack for the Sega Master System? Isn't it for the SG-1000 or is there another version?
