A mad scientist named Dr. Killbait succeeded in resurrecting one of the eight ancient dragons, endangering the country of Hyneld. The captain of the king's knights, Robin Solford, witnesses the dragon's attack on the castle. His two comrades are killed, and the princess Patricia, Robin's adoptive sister, is nowhere to be seen. Robin is determined to find Patricia and stop Dr. Killbait, and begins to wander around the world, hoping to find friends who will help him on his perilous journey.

Startling Odyssey II: Maryū Sensō is not a sequel, but a prequel to the first game, Robin Solford being the father of the previous game's hero. The game is set in a predominantly medieval fantasy-themed world with a touch of sci-fi, and plays like a traditional Japanese RPG. The player navigates a party of characters on a top-down overworld, visiting cities and dungeon-like areas. Enemies are encountered randomly. Battles are viewed from isometric perspective, with an "auto" option to speed up combat.

Characters join the party as dictated by the plot; the party will eventually contain four active combatants. Each character has his or her own sets of offensive, supporting, or healing spells, which are learned automatically when the character levels up. The game features full-screen anime-style cutscenes and voice acting during important events.

Startling Odyssey 2 English Translation Project

After over 7 years of on again off again work, I am ready to release the first public English patch for Startling Odyssey 2
for the PC Engine/Turbo Duo!

First things first, this translation should be considered a hack.  This game was translated using machine translators
and has been reworded by myself to make sense rather than jibberish.  I have personally played through the game
several times to make sure that things make sense all the way through the game and that all text has been translated
that affects gameplay.

Things that are complete:

Items names
Spell names
Equipment (weapons, armor, shields, helmets, and accessories)
Area names
Menus and submenus
Debug Mode Selections (cinema selections)
Cheat Code

Things that are incomplete:

Opening cinema

The incomplete list mostly contains the images that have text on it.  Once I figure out or someone can help me extract
the images, I hope to get those translated as well.  Credits just dont have enough room to fully translate so I stopped
translating those until further notice.

Keep in mind that this is an beta alpha release.  There are bound to be spelling errors or pointer issues.  I have tried
to catch all of those, but perhaps some have slipped by.  If you do happen to come across any, please take a screenshot
and email it to TruMisery@gmail.com so that I can fix the error.

Again, since this is an "translation hack" the script will not be translated 100% accurate.  As many have pointed out
that with machine translations, the machine has a hard time taking context into consideration as well as unknown words.

The iso after being patched still passes the toc check by using TocFixer that NightWolve made.

This version is currently pre-patched and ready to either burn to a disc and play on a real system or load into a virtual cd drive and play on an

Added Note:

EsperKnight is currently working on a text hack that will give us a better font that will also allow for more characters per line.
There was a glitch with it when playing on a real system that did not allow for the text to be printed to the screen with the
previous text hack.

There are currently future plans to get this game translated by a human as well as implement the font hack.

This game has been tested on a real system and the following emulators: YAME!, Magic Engine, and mednafen and they
all work 100% as intended.

Thank you for downloading this patch and I hope that you enjoy it.

I played 3 days and enjoyed the game, but there's a point when the whole game freezes on a cutscene :(
