Shadowrun (Sega CD): In-game text, insertion underway!

Been a long time coming…

It has begun, chummers.

Esper managed to get the script inserted. We have yet to do any tweaking, but it’s there!

Basically at this point we need to fine tune it, correct any erroneous pointers(see the black screen in the battles), and hopefully apply a fixed-width font so the sentences actually fit.

Most of the cut-offs are due to the JP version having a three line limitation.

This is from one of my favorite scenarios. The runners are checking locations in Shibuya to find out the whereabouts of the Shadow Mage… and get more than they bargained for.


First step in a brave new world and all that. See you on the flip side!

  1. Great! Glad to hear work is progressing on this. šŸ™‚

    I know these sorts of projects often take a long time to come to fruition, so I only check in on them sporadically. Often I’m disappointed to find that they’ve been abandoned for one reason or another. Thank you for your dedication and perseverance!

  2. You would be heroes to the entire western RPG fanbase for finishing this. I applaud you efforts and hope this endeavour comes to see the light of day.

  3. I have wanted to play this game for so many years. I still go back and play Snatcher and Rise of the Dragon on my Sega CD every couple of years. Thank you for taking on this project, thank you so much!

  4. Wow. Please keep up the good work. I can’t wait to get this English translated. Question: Will I be able to burn a CD-R and play it on my Sega CD or will it be emulation only. Thank you.

  5. Just wanted comment on how the the character portraits from the above screenshots look slightly like grimmed out versions of Vandal Hearts character portraits (to me at least). Anyways thanks for the continued work on this project by all of those involved!!! Will be very awesome to be able to play this once it’s completed! šŸ™‚
