ROM dumps by ChronoMoogle.

After getting Ikari’s help in getting some 8M Packs ROM-dumped, ChronoMoogle sent me these Memory Pack ROM dumps to take a look at.

The first is a redump of BS Fire Emblem Akaneia Senki Hen Dai-1-Wa: Palace Kanryaku.
In comparison with the previous dump, the -only- difference is the date, which is marked (as ucon64 detects it) 9/29 instead of the previous dump’s 4/4. Otherwise, it is completely identical, even down to the checksum.
As unfortunate as it is that I didn’t find something awesome like the missing CG Art (aw, well. I got scans of that anniversary book, anyway), the fact that these two different dumps are the same down to the checksum basically means the ROM data is as close to “verified good” as it can possibly be, which is pretty good for a Soundlink game!
Likewise, compatibility is also identical to the previous ROM dump.

The second ROM… uhhhhhh…..
Checking the hex mentions something about “ASCII Music Data”, so it may be intended to be Ongaku Tsukuru Kanaderu data, but… it doesn’t seem to show in BS-X or anything. Is it a corrupt or deleted data? This is confusing….

Both of these ROM dumps can be downloaded here.

Coincidence? What timing for more BS Fire Emblem videos!

It seems a short while after the announcement of the remake of BS Fire Emblem on the Nintendo DS, a NicoNicoDouga resident decided to celebrate by uploading videos of Episodes 3 and 4, finishing up a video series I sought complete for a while.

I’m gonna mirror Dai-3-wa up here, folks! Finally, we’ll hear Rickard’s voice!… and he kinda sounds more or less like I expected him too, strangely enough.

Dai-4-wa will be put up later, but if you want to check it out right now – you impatient little children you – I put download links at Serenesforest!

The next Fire Emblem game to recreate the BS Fire Emblem chapters? (UPDATED with Official Site info)

Man, I skip going to SerenesForest for like 10 days and I miss -everything-, don’t I?

They’ve recently updated their site with this page!

Apparently info on the next DS entry for Fire Emblem is out. It is a remake of the first SNES Game entry, Monshou no Nazo. One of the motable changes, however, is the addition of the female mercenary from BS Fire Emblem, and the assurance that one of the “Extras” for the game is, in fact, the ability to play the BS Fire Emblem story!

This could be quite a bombshell if true – it’s the 15th Anniversary of the Satellaview’s release, and what better way to celebrate it than Nintendo finally acknowledging that the add-on existed!

I’m waiting for more info on this one! 😀


Nintendo’s official webpage on the new game has updated with the BS Fire Emblem info.

More BS Fire Emblem (BSFE Dai-2-wa)

I got caught up a bit of other work which will be my next post, but I didn’t want to forget about this. 🙂

Here’s Week 2 of BS Fire Emblem. Unfortunately no videos of 3 or 4 have been uploaded on NicoNicoDouga yet, much to my angst.
