It has recently come to our attention that there is a crash that occurs at the end of Page 12 chapter 2 in version 1.0 of the patch. We've fixed this and should have an updated patch out tomorrow. Don't worry, your save file from the 1.0 patch will be perfectly compatible with the updated patch (as well as all future updates).
We've also been notified of another problem with the current patch, which was touched on briefly yesterday. The 1.0 patch was based on a technically incomplete dump of the game. The missing data only totals around 100 bytes, and it has no impact on the ROM's playability. Still, it's better to have support for the correctly dumped rom, so this will also be rectified in tomorrow's release. Note that if you've acquired your ROM from somewhere other than your own legitimate cartridge, there is a high possibility that the dump is incomplete; the most common scene release (has (Independent) in the file name) seems to be an incomplete dump. This also means that if the 1.0 patch did work for you, your ROM is likely an incomplete dump, and as such it won't be compatible with the new patch.
Alongside the updated translation patch, we will be releasing a tool that checks a ROM and tells you whether it is a complete dump or not. We will also provide a patch that will "repair" an incompletely dumped ROM and restore the missing data. (The current "fix patch" simply reverts a complete dump to the incomplete dump that the 1.0 patch is compatible with, hardly an ideal solution)
Once again we'd like to give a special thanks to CheatFreak47 over on GBAtemp for pointing that out to us.
Finally, the new patch will fix some typos and other textual errors that have come to our attention in the last few days. Thanks to anyone who pointed these out, and please keep letting us know if you spot any :)
See you tomorrow!
This is a blog that we use to post news on our translation of "Ripened Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love". For those who don't know, it is a sequel to Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. Rupeeland was released in English, but Balloon Trip of Love wasn't.
