Do you have a separate link to an English site?  The only English I can find there is in a few mouseovers, and that's only one small section of the page.  Since it's all in Finnish, I can't figure out how to navigate around to an English section.

Here's a zip of a ips file for the English translation:

Here's a machine translation of the features of this patch:

Here's a couple pics.




Here's a thread about the release:

The good news about the patch is it includes a map that has been translated. How cool and helpful is that? Always said the game needed a map. Too bad it's not in SOTN/Metroid-vania style. But it's better than nothing.

I would have been happy with just a text dump :) It'll be interesting to see the differences in someone else's translation of the text from CV2, too bad that I'm way too busy right now to play it.

I am enjoying this translation. It actually makes Simon's Quest fun to play.

I like knowing where to go. Rather than being all like: "What do I do?! WHERE DO I GOOOO?!"

This programmer did a new translation as well, but I have no idea where they got it from.

That remake looks pretty cool. I heard there was another CV2 remake but it had a different level arrangement. This patch is good for those that wanna try the original with a good translation tho.

Hell yeah! I've been a staunch supporter of that ever since I realized how AWESOME it made CV2. I should start naming myself the unofficial spokesman for it!
And that Simon sprite absolutely ROCKS Jorge, which is also why I've been trying to show it around! You put in a ton of work into that sucker!

Here's a video of the Finnish translation including the map.

Now i'd like to see a English version playthrough. This keyboard has a broken right arrow key so I can't use it to play. Besides, playing with a keyboard is hard anyway. I don't have a controller that works with the computer either.

Just fire up a program like Joy2Key. It's free to download, and while it's loaded it will register your controller inputs as keyboard. I use it all the time for DOS games and flash games that don't support a controller natively.

Joy2Key won't do me any good cause I don't have a controller that works on the PC. I have access to a PS3 controller, and it worked on my last PC but it won't work on this netbook for some reason. I even tried MotioninJoy and it didn't work this time.

Here's a link to the english re-translation on ROMHacking.net. The patch features are rewritten so you don't have to deal with a machine translation anymore.

The english retranslation author just made a page with a more literal translation. Read it for info. Too bad he didn't use all the text box space to fit this stuff in there. He also updated the Romhacking.net page so it's in better detail.

I sat here for about an hour and a half reading that. That was quite fun to read. :D
