    Here is an announcement for our English translation project for Gage, which was released on the PC-98 system from Mindware! This is our first time working on a PC-98 game and we hope everyone enjoys it! If you are a fan of Roguelike games, Castle of the Winds, or Ragnarok (DOS), you will enjoy this one! It is a very challenging game where you must take whatever you can and recruit what help you find in order to climb to the top of the tower... If any issues are found please let MrRichard999 know on twitter or send a PM here on the codex!

    Thank you for translating this one MrRichard999, hollowtape and AgentOrange.

    Interesting Roguelike game, played it with the translation for about half an hour so far to get the feel of the game.

    Converting the HDM disk files to D88 format using Virtual Floppy image converter works fine with the translation as that is the route I took before applying the patches.

    It's always great to see PC98 and other Japan retro computer systems RPG games translated into English.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how much of a pain is it to get the whole shebang working? ROM, patch, emu etc? Looks very up my alley.

    Pretty easy. You need to use the D88 files for it to work with the patches. I know that there is an HDI format and it is not meant for that.
