I wouldn't mind taking on this request. After checking the game out, it looks pretty nice and it should be fun to map out.

There is an RPG with a big map called "Ganbare Goemon Gaiden: Kieta Ougon Kiseru"(がんばれゴエモン外伝 きえた黄金キセル). I would appreciate if someone managed to splice something together for that. Many thanks! Let me know if there are problems……

Someone just emailed me about this game.  I guess people really do notice these monthly recognitions after all!

Quote from: Fralinur8

when I was a kid I saw picture in a magazine of a really good looking GBA game before the GBA was released and it was part of the reason I wanted the thing. But I never found out what the game was and if it belonged to an even released game and now I open your site and on the top I see some pictures of "Magical Vacation" and thought "wait a second, isn't that? omg it is".
And it never left Japan, so no wonder I never found it.
And there is an English language patch for it.
And it's kinda connected to Secret of Mana, no wonder I liked the look!

Thanks for "telling" me!

Is there a way to sort image files in a folder by the ratio of their widths to heights?  Like the aspect ratio?

One of my favourite image browser programs no longer compatible in the post-XP world was CompuPic Pro, which among many other things, was able to sort by "orientation" (tallest to widest, or vice-versa, by ratio).  I haven't seen anything like that for the more modern Windows.  Unless I'm blind I don't see anything like that in Windows Explorer, other than individual width/height fields, or together as "dimensions" (like "1920 x 1080"), but not divided to give a ratio.

This is I'd like to easily identify images that are at 16:9 (widescreen), 4:3 (standard), 1:1 (square), 3:4 and 9:16 ratios, and anything that doesn't fall into any of those.


EDIT: Yes, I know how to use Google, and any search for "sort by aspect ratio" leads me to "Dimensions 2 Folders", which is only semi-useful.  I can easily find things with those ratios or close to them so I can crop and resize as necessary, but ultimately it would be more handy to be able to sort by or at least see the aspect ratios of new images that are added without going through a big folder shuffle using that program every time.

Devin Acker (Revenant) has programmed a level editor for Kirby's Dream Course, which makes ripping super easy.

However, it only displays the tiles with the default palette, so that would need to be accounted for.

Hmm, that looks, ehm... ok.
So how was the kickstarter company? The success was really close but then it turned away?
It's a shame really, when some not bad ideas go straight to the bottom of the world and no one appears to notice them.

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to Tropicon's and Eishiya's Magical Vacation (J) (GBA) maps.

School's out!  It's time to go on a vacation!  How about...a MAGICAL vacation?  Like going to Valencia Beach, where you and your summer school classmates (from a MAGICAL school) can enjoy a view of the ocean, beautiful sunsets, and a creature known as Enigma that might capture some of your friends!  Or check out the Plane Of Light, where you can check out the market at Pippurusu Town, and marvel at the wondrously cheesy La Roche Tower.  Or the Plane Of Darkness, with its way-cool Icy Island, or take a trek through Riginio Jungle.  And then there's the oh-so-welcoming Plane Of Death...maybe?  (Okay, maybe not.)

The first game by the Nintendo-owned studio Brownie Brown (now 1-Up Studios, orginally comprised of ex-Square staff) is Magical Vacation (J).  This gorgeous game is reminiscent in look to the Mana series, which they also worked on (as they did Sword Of Mana and Heroes Of Mana).  This picturesque, yet often labyrinthine game - which is also underappreciated, as it didn't see a release outside of Japan - is a great choice for recognition here.

So for taking us on a magical RPG vacation, Tropicon's and Eishiya's Magical Vacation (J) (GBA) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for July 2017.

Kirby's Rainbow Resort has most of the rest of the Kirby's Dream Course set:

There are a few missing from Course 6, but these are from the same set as already here on VGMaps.

I've attempted to map them myself with the full backgrounds, but I couldn't ever come up with anything that looked decent since it's a single non-parallax screen. And just mapping the few missing levels without backgrounds seemed somehow unfulfilling...
