Description:

This is a menu translation of Super Thracia 776, a somewhat infamous Japanese romhack of Thracia 776 by LIN◆LIN/XxX/gw. It translates all the menus, descriptions, names, classes, etc of the game, as well as all the chapter titles.

The font displays are based on Zane Avernathy’s Thracia 776 English Menu Translation. The UI changes are ported directly from the “Lil’ Manster” project, and include a number of QoL improvements, like a modern menu command order, FCM display on the profile, CRT display in battle, and extended description boxes.

This also includes two minor Super Thracia fixes:

  1. The first intro battle now shows Osian’s name instead of Dagdar.
  2. Custom map palettes no longer revert to vanilla colors when the screen darkens.
  3. The Devil’s Horn bonus to magic is now properly written in the “Stat bonus” slot, rather than the “Effectiveness” slot, where it did nothing.

---------------------------------------------- Super Thracia English Menu Translation Patch ---------------------------------------------- This is a menu translation of Super Thracia, a somewhat infamous Japanese romhack of Thracia 776 by a certain LIN◆LIN/XxX/gw. It translates all the menus, descriptions, names, classes, etc of the game, as well as all the chapter titles. The font displays are based on Zane Avernathy's Thracia 776 English Menu Translation. The UI changes are ported directly from my Lil' Manster project, and includes a number of QoL improvements, like a modern menu command order, FCM display on the profile, Crt display in battle, and extended description boxes. This also includes two minor Super Thracia fixes: - The first intro battle now shows Osian's name instead of Dagdar. - Custom map palettes no longer revert to vanilla colors when the screen darkens. - The Devil's Horn bonus to magic is now properly written in the "Stat bonus" slot, rather than the "Effectiveness" slot, where it did nothing. This patch must be applied to a headered Super Thracia ROM, specifically the V-ROM version, not NP. The rom is expanded, so some emulators are not compatible with Super Thracia's menu translation. Snes9x et bsnes work fine out of the box, and "ZSNES 8MB custom build" works just as well. --- Known Issues: --- - The Sound Room category and track names had to be sacrificed to make room for the longer item descriptions. - While the portraits and scripting of dialogue remain untouched, the contents of the dialogue will show a mix of Japanese and Latin characters. This is because we had to replace some Japanese characters, so chapter titles and objectives could be legible. If this bothers you and you wish to read the Japanese text, then I would suggest playing vanilla Super Thracia instead. - Similarly (but for different reasons), most boss quotes and some other pieces of dialogue will read out all the item descriptions. This does not cause any issue (just press B to skip it) and might be fixed in the future. - The Crimson Note tome softlocks the game if battle animations are Off. This was in regular ST and might be fixed in the future. - Battle backgrounds will sometimes break for the duration of a single frame. This happens at random and, to our knowledge, doesn't affect anything. This was in regular ST and we do not know how to fix it. ----- Thanks and Acknowledgments: ----- Original Super Thracia patch by LIN◆LIN/XxX/gw Based on Zane Avernathy's FE5 menu translation and compiled with his tools.
