After ten days of extreme beta testing and ten more(ish) of extreme midnight oil burning, Mystic Ark is finally available for public consumption. Do please be sure to read the readme, as it contains several notes about the translation itself.
Thank you, thank you very much! YOU ARE ZHI MAN, as always, Gid.

AGTP team has done so much for the gaming community, it's scary! Special thanks go out to Ian, who already attained fame and immortality, on the world weird web, at least, through his work on La Mulana (most famous AGTP project after Cave Story). I can't name all projects he worked on, but I do know that among them are some of my favourite SNES games: SMT1-2, AS Valken, Shiren -- the ones where he was the primary translator; thus, there's no doubt in my mind that:
Gideon Zhi + Ian Kelley = GIDIAN ZEEETO!!!  Lovely Translation ~ ♥ .

Oh I'm going to enjoy this one SO much, I've been listening to MA's soundtrack long before discovering the game itself -- Akihiko Mori's works had a unique and interesting sound.  May he rest in peace.

right after I started the game after patching, I fought a crow to the right and slightly above the house in the ship figure world and instantly jumped to level 81. I'm pretty sure that isn't supposed to happen, so I thought I'd mention it.

Sounds like a bad image copy.

I applied the patch to a different ROM image, and it works fine now, it was still weird, but I can play normally now so all is well!

As the wise man said (I think it was Derek) Gid is God.

Don't remember saying that one, but hey, I'll take credit for it. ~_^

dragonmasterjb0: Apparently, in the new series, Lina is arrested at one point on charges of being Lina Inverse.

The rest of the party, in typical Slayers fashion, gives a reaction to the effect of "Sounds reasonable."

This may not be the place for this, but the forum software would not allow me to make a new thread in the bug forum, and this was the best place I could come up with to report it. I think I've found a bug in the patch. After completing world 3, I am no longer able to encounter enemies. Some others have reported this as well. See here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=564396&topic=51501369

I have a screenshot and zsnes savestate here:

To be more precise, the last time I was able to encounter them was right before I killed the last boss of World 3. Thoughts?

A couple of questions.

1) Are you using any cheats? This is *important.*
2) Do you have any earlier savestates? Like, before you beat the boss in world 3? :p

Nevermind, I found the problem. (Or, more accurately, where the problem occurs... if I found the problem itself, I'd have a fix pretty quickly.)

Unfortunately, it's 11:30 PM and I need to be at work at 10 tomorrow, so I can't guarantee a fix before tomorrow evening. I'll try, though.

"Fix" is up. Unfortunately it involves having a save before the bug occurred. I'll see if I can find a random battles enable tomorrow... I'm pretty sure there was a toggle in one of the debug menus to do that.

OMG, thank you so much, I have basically given up all hope, that Mystic Ark would ever get translated, when destiny translations technically canceled the project when it was so close to being done.

I had to reformat my PC a month ago, and I was bored today, so I figured I would google it, to see if they had done anything with eith that(doubtful)or any other games, needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised to see this site pop up on goodle, saying Mystic Ark was done.

It was a real pain to locate a clean rom(damit, nearly every MA rom out there is martially patched), but I found one, and seems to be sweet so far(I so never thought I would ever get to play this game).

Thanks again :)
