Kingdom Grandprix: English translation patches

Kingdom Grandprix: English translation patches 2024.02.04-01

Shippuu Mahou Daisakusen: Kingdom Grandprix is a combination shooting/racing game by Eighting / Raizing.

Following its arcade release, it was was ported to the Saturn. That version only came out in Japan. Even so, a full (but questionable) English translation is present on its disc.

These patches do two things:
  1. Change the game text to English
  2. Enable the extra "Game Mode" options, which normally require a cheat code

A writeup with technical is available at Rings of Saturn.

Apply one of the patches with Sega Saturn Patcher:
  • Original translation: OriginalEnglish.ssp
  • Malenko's improved translation: RevisedEnglishPatch.ssp

  • Malenko, for spotting the English resources on the Saturn version
  • Bo, for figuring out how to turn them on

Works well on original hardware but doesn't on emulators. While the clean iso does. It would be great if it was compatible. Either way great job.
Just published a fix for the emulator issue - try it out!
I know its self-servicing to rate something I "helped with" 5 stars but this is a great game with 2 different game play modes (effectively making it 2 games in 1). While shmups aren't really locked behind a language barrier it is nice to know whats going on.
