********************************************************************************

This package contains the source materials (code/art/script) for the English
translation project for the Famicom game Idol Hakkenden.

                    ****************************************
                    *          Build Instructions          *
                    ****************************************
                    
The build system is only set up for Unix-like systems, though none of the code
is fundamentally dependent on this and could be ported with a bit of effort.
You'll need GCC.

Get a ROM image of the original game. This should be the No-Intro verified dump
("Idol Hakkenden (Japan).nes") with an iNES header; the MD5 sum should be
c4fa4cc1d11e0f70e7db04a30e18ddbd. Rename it "idolhak.nes" and place it in the
"idolhak" folder. Then:

$ cd idolhak
$ ./build.sh

build.sh should then build all the necessary tools and output the translated
ROM as idolhak_en.nes.

If you want to modify the project, check build.sh to see where the resources
that get inserted into the game are coming from.

                    ****************************************

See COPYING. Basically, everything by me (Supper) is GPLv3, and everything else
is under the terms of whoever wrote it.
