Thanks for the enthusiasm. Yes, Herc's Adventure will be difficult. I'm using PSX1.13 (the only one I know of for more accurate emulation) but it has no input for cheats. Can anyone suggest anything better? any tools?

PS: I have finished with ladystalker but I am waiting for the original art work scans (by the same person that scanned the landstalker art) to place on the maps, also I cant take credit alone for lady stalker. If it wasent for my brother who made the cheat codes to helped me map it It would have never been done.

Right now I'm working on PS1 Herc's adventure, arcade magical cat adventure, NES The Adventure of Valkyrie(only the over world map for now), C64 knight 'n' grail, SNES popfulmail and GEN/MD Ys3.
I get bored if I only focus on one game. Herc's adventure looks like it might go close to 30k x 30k. I just hope I can accomplish it.

Is anyone ells working on any of these games on this list?

Most of the time the newer version of MAME is best but some times its not, like when they mess up the tile map viewer colors and make some games unworkable, so you end up going back to an older version.

You're a mapper, if the game is hard you cheat.  You're not there to play you're there to take it apart.
I do use a cheat. I needed a walk-through so I can pass the puzzles to get to a new area and to the next scenario.

Dark half is coming along fine, but the game is a little hard to play. (needed a walk-through)
Also I will continue with Ladystalker and Popfulmail. My brother has made some zsnes cheat codes like walk-through walls in Ladystalker and to remove the dark circle in Popfulmail as well as other codes to help me map thoses two games.

Anyone know how many unique levels gauntlet 2 has?

I see what you mean Trop about it being more work, but I'm still going to try to map it.
What do you think about these for starters?
24  General Boards / Maps In Progress / Re: Tropicon's map projects on: June 07, 2015, 03:42:35 PM
the code did not work. I'm using zsnes.
25  General Boards / Maps In Progress / Re: Tropicon's map projects on: June 05, 2015, 04:27:33 AM
OK I'll try to map it with whatever free time I have but without a walk through walls code it wont be as good as landstalker.
Trop, are you ever going to finish Monstania?

can someone recommend a good screen capture software for full screen only PC games?
27  General Boards / Maps In Progress / Re: Marble-Man Marble Madness 2 on: May 30, 2015, 06:37:46 AM
it just occurred to me. If he is too busy why not have a trusted friend do the video capture? I mean what would they need a PC  TV-tuner and arcade supergun? How big of a deal is it to get a video capture of the game and put it online? From what I was told he did it before (but in poor quality).

You did the popful mail world map! I found that on line years ago but did not know who it was from. sorry about that I'll ask JonLeung to give you credit for it then, OK.

 I'll try again with BGMapper on Lady Stalker world map. Popful mail cave stage has this circle around mail and every thing out of the circle is dark. any way of getting around that. I mean is there a way to illuminate the whole screen? As for  a Lady Stalker  walk through walls
 cheat code, I'll ask my bro for help, see if he can figure it out. I hope those two games get translated some day. Would fully mapping them inspire anyone to do that?

As for dark half and energy breaker your right about that the main difficulty would be the arranging the rooms. Most of my time in landstaslker and other large games was connecting the areas together. You want to make it easy to follow but also preserve its look without clustering the map sectors with overlay, lines and labels.

would you say those games (dark half, energy breaker) are as big or bigger and more complex than landstalker?

As for BGmapper I had dificulty with it (too much of a hasal). I was wondering if it could help me with the cave stage in snes Popfulmail.
I don't know. should I continue withe popfulmail even though no one is going to translate it (same hacking difficulty as Ys5) and ladystalker, I stopped because I cant fined or make a cheat code to walk through walls.

Trop how did you get the full world map of Ys 5? what tool did you use? what emulator do you use?
Also are you sure you don't want do do Dark Half (not Dark Law) and will you finish Energy Breaker?
