FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Compress Version 1.40 Released December 25, 2002

This version of Lunar Compress adds support for 64 mbit ROM expansion and address conversion. It also adds support for using the DLL functions directly on memory instead of files, and includes 2 new functions for creating and using IPS patch files.

Oh, and Merry Christmas! ^^

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Expand Version 1.12 Released December 25, 2002

This version of Lunar Expand changes the ExLoROM expansion for the $00:8000 memory map slightly, and updates the documentation on the ExHiROM map for banks $70-$77.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Address Version 1.01 Released December 25, 2002

This version of Lunar Address corrects a mistake in conversion of ExHiROM addresses. The area from 0000-7FFF in banks $70-$77 are used by SRAM. The corresponding areas in the ROM are not accessible.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Address Version 1.00 Released! November 13, 2002

Lunar Address is a SNES address converter that can handle conversion for ROMs up to 64 Mbits. For those that have used J2E's Hex to SNES program, the expanded layout will probably look familiar... It does have a few extra features though, such as alternative smaller layouts and a "Top Most Window" option.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Expand Version 1.11 Released. November 13, 2002

This version changes the ExHiROM options so that the starting bank isn't recopied if the ROM was already > 32 Mbits. Not exactly a big deal, but it was inconsistent with the ExLoROM expansion.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Expand Version 1.10 Released! November 11, 2002

Since the new version of Snes9x (1.39a) has support for 64 Mbit HiROM and LoROM games, I've updated Lunar Expand to include several options for expansion up to 64 Mbit. ^^ Hopefully it won't be too long before Zsnes supports the higher ROM sizes as well.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Magic Version 1.51 Released... September 24, 2002

This version of Lunar Magic fixes the crashing problem on startup for WinNT based systems.

Gomen nasai...

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Magic Version 1.50 Released! September 24, 2002

On this day exactly two years ago, Lunar Magic version 1.00 was released for the first time. So to celebrate LM's 2nd year anniversary, I've released a new version of the program. ^^

Probably the most noticable change in this version is the new tool bar, which should make saving levels to the ROM less time consuming. The background editor has also been updated to include multiple tile selection and drag/drop support, which is something that's been overdue for a while now.

And there's the usual minor bug fix and update here and there... check the "What's new" section of the help file or readme file for the whole list.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Expand Version 1.01 Released August 26, 2002

This is just a small win32 program I threw together yesterday that can be used to expand some SNES ROMs up to 48 mbits. It may come in handy if you've always wanted to expand to 48 mbits but didn't know how to get it to work.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Compress Version 1.30 Released July 20, 2002

This version of the DLL adds 4 new compression formats from RoboTrek, Harvest Moon, Gradius 3, and Chrono Trigger. I've also added Lunar Magic's RAT functions, and a small brute force tool called "sniff.exe" which can sometimes be used to locate compressed data offsets using formats supported by the DLL.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Site Restored Again July 13, 2002

The uct2 server seems to be down most of the time, so I've temporarily moved the site to fusoya.hg.pl until fusoya.uct2.net recovers.

July 17: Looks like uct2 is back up with a new server! ^^

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Magic Version 1.43 Released June 15, 2002

This is a relatively minor update that fixes a few things here and there. There are a couple new features though, such as dumping a level to a bitmap file and the addition of a recently used files list in the file menu. And the Easter egg for support of SMW in the Mario All Stars + World ROM has been turned into a standard feature.

In other news, I've updated the Lunar Compress documentation, since apparently Lufia 1 uses the same compression format as Lufia 2. While I was at it I rearranged some of the comments in the header file to make them a bit easier to read.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Site Restored. May 13, 2002

As you may have noticed, the site has been offline for the past few days. However, Gangis has provided a temporary host that should hopefully last until UCT2 can be moved to another provider. So for now, fusoya.uct2.net is being redirected here instead.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Compress Version 1.21 Released. April 21, 2002

This version has support for a few more compression formats that I've encountered and decided to include. The new formats are from Sailor Moon & Sailor Moon R (GB), SoM's title screen, MegaMan X, the ending sequence of Mario RPG, and Lufia 2.

There are also a few minor updates to other functions in the DLL, and slightly updated versions of decomp.exe and recomp.exe included. Check the readme.txt file for more details.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Sailor Moon R Translation Released! March 6, 2002

The Sailor Moon R translation patch (SNES) has been released! Hard to believe that it's been almost 3 years since the Sailor Moon RPG translation project... it was kind of nice to work on another translation project for a change. I really ought to do it more often, if I could just find the time for it.

Anyway, if you're a fan of Sailor Moon side scroller games, give the patch a try and have fun!

Note: For some unfathomable reason, Masamune went and jumped the gun by releasing one of the beta patches instead of waiting for me to send him the final one. If your game has the words "Private Beta, Do not distribute" on the title screen, you've got the wrong patch. -_-

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  New Sailor Moon R Section February 22, 2002

The new section for the Sailor Moon R SNES translation project is now online. The release date for the final version of the patch has already been decided on, so while you wait you can go have a look at the screen shots that have been put up.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  FuSoYa's Niche on a New Host! February 16, 2002

FuSoYa's Niche is now located on the UCT2 server, thanks to the very kind generosity of Gangis. So long, F2S... it was nice while it lasted.

In other news, I'll probably be adding another small section to the site within the next few weeks for a new Sailor Moon game translation that I and a few others have been working on lately, as the project is nearing completion.

Until next time...

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Magic Version 1.42 Released. February 9, 2002

This release should fix the few remaining bugs left over from version 1.40, and adds level name and message box text editing support to the overworld editor. As usual, check the "What's New" section of the help file for more details.

FuSoYa, Defender of Relm  Lunar Magic Version 1.41 Released. January 1, 2002

This release fixes a few bugs that found their way into version 1.40, such as the old style secondary exits not behaving properly. It also corrects a couple bugs that can affect saving the overworld. Check the "What's New" section of the help file for more details.

Happy new year! ^^

Note: I've been informed that F2S is pulling the plug on all their free accounts at the end of February. This means FuSoYa's Niche will once again have to find a new home... So if you haven't bookmarked the fusoya.cjb.net URL redirect address, now may be a good time to do so, just in case.
