    Translating Grandia

    Just to close the loop on this, I went back to re-verify my results. TLDR; I can get matching checksums from my original rips now. I made the faulty assumption that the data would be equivalent when extracted by different tools, and therefore the erroneous statement that I followed the process...

    Translating Grandia

    I used a variety of things. One of them was a plugin for 7-zip that treats image files like archives - I was actually surprised, but it showed the CRC sum as one of the file attributes. Another was the Windows checksumming tool (I forget what it's called). I can get you the actual names of...

    I don't take it as condescending. Your instructions were clear and it was clear you went to great pains to make sure they would work. I followed them precisely. I've used these tools since the late 90's to manipulate CD images in all kinds of crazy ways. I *thought* I was pretty good at it...

    Translating Grandia

    Honestly any Saturn you get that hasn't been recapped has the potential to have bad caps, no matter what model it is. The Saturns themselves may have been manufactured years apart but most of the capacitors were purchased in bulk and used by the factory for years. It's a crap shoot either way...

    If your Saturn has through hole caps then yes. Console5 is awesome. If your Saturn has surface mount capacitors the SMD kit would be a more appropriate replacement. It requires rework equipment and knowledge of how to use it, but you really need that equipment to safely get SMD caps off...

    I might have missed it, but has the Saturn been re-capped? Bad/leaky caps aren't always obvious and they can cause all manner of logic errors like this.

    Translating Grandia

    TrekkiesUnite118, this project is a dream come true for me. Grandia is my favorite game of all time. I taught myself Japanese in order to play through it when it first released and always felt cheated that we never got an English version on Saturn. Thank you so much for tackling this - I'd...
