Great find! I've enjoyed this quite a bit so far. I couldn't get the included .bps patch to work, but the .ips patch, along with nflate & Lunar IPS did the deed.

The game is quite fun so far; the treasure maps are simple but cool, and the companion idea is nifty.
Tip: You can select which enemy you want to attack by using D-pad left/right while the cursor is on Attack, but only *before* you select it.
