    Looks like the next revision will have lots of typo fixes.
    You don't have to apologize for it. If anything, we should be the one grateful that someone's trying to point out any typo.

    Hey would you like to join the team as the 'wise and powerful proof reader'?

    https://discord.gg/xkyPhSX

    If you prefer posting fixes on the thread that'd be okay too. But as dedicated as you are we invite you to join our team's chat.
    Then we could communicate more easily /directly. We could also then give you access to the current files.
    Then you could edit them yourself if you'd like. ;)

    Anyway thanks for the help regardless.

    @WillTheLion Sure thing, I'm on board to join the team. I don't know about wise or powerful, though. ;) I registered a Discord account and I'm in there now as Vague Rant.

    EDIT: FIXED.

    "Don't pause during the final boss battle. It makes the game crash and we don't know why yet."

    If anyone has a save file from right before the final boss (or the almost final boss) then please export your save file and upload it for us so that we may test this issue easier by getting to the boss faster than beating all the bosses in the Dojo's Boss Run challenge.

    Just saw that this game got fully translated today and I was pretty shocked. It is a rare occasion that I see a fantranslation get finished, as most translation projects seem to eventually die off. I was a fan of the MMO, but it taught me that soloing it won't get me anywhere fast, and introduced me to the concept of toxic players, so having a single-player version of the game to play sounds more up my alley.

    I just wish I had known that the name you type in for your file is what they name the girl. Now I have a female character with the name Chris x_x

    This is an amazing project! Thanks for all of your efforts and I'm happy to see this has come to completion.

    I'm new to all this and am looking for some advice. Do I need anything more than al9h Luma 3DS to use the plugin provided? How do I go about setting up NTR with my current setup?

    @kid sampson, if you're able to locate a pre-patched .cia of the MapleStory 3DS translation hack, you can just install that using FBI and not worry about using NTR. The downside of this approach is that if there are any further updates in the future, you'll have to redownload a new .cia, backup your save, install the new update, then restore your save. The upside is that you just install the CIA as you usually would and there's no additional work, besides save management.

    If you'd like to use the NTR plugin, where you can download just the translation files and apply them to a clean MapleStory .cia at runtime (and apply updates in the same way), you'll need to install NTR on your 3DS. This means copying ntr.bin (should be included in the patch download) to your SD card and installing a fork of BootNTR such as astronautlevel2's via FBI to start it up. NTR needs to be booted on your 3DS each time you want to use it, it's not a "permanent" CFW like Luma3DS is. The downside to this approach is that a) you need to install NTR first, and b) you have to launch NTR each time you want to play MapleStory 3DS in English. The upside is very small update downloads and a simple drag-and-drop to SD card instead of installing a new CIA each time there's an update (although there shouldn't be terribly many updates).

    Release time! All crashes and bugs fixed. All proofread and corrected. Also we found a new way to create the .ctpk image files that greatly lowered the file size and maintained 100% quality so the patch is now has much faster load times.Here's the links to the update:

    NTR + Patch v1.02: https://mega.nz/#!aFIQkLyD!SD4zve47TYjt0nIpy7Gl7d0g56GNSx4V76q-mf_mWqs

    The crash was caused by our .ctpk taking up too much VRAM during the final boss because of how big and animated he is. He takes up lots of memory. This and all other bugs have been fixed. This in theory is the "definitive version".

    I appreciate the thorough response. Since the file is small, I do not think I'll bother with using BootNTR. I don't see myself using it much beyond this project. Many thanks for the explanation and the good work put into this. So glad to see both this response and an update today. One more day to go in the weekend — just in time!

    Uhm.. does this work?
    I converted the .3ds to .cia, installed it and opened BootNTR CFW Selector and selected 3.4 as always, but the game is still in Korean. (yes, I put all the files from the zip in the root of my SD)

    Also, I don't know how to update it since my 3DS eShop is Italian and neither Freeshop and that title key site do have the key for this game..
    This is harder then I expected, will there be some kind of video tutorial or something?

    Hey, I'm sorry if this question was already asked.(even tho I used search before:P)I was wondering how much trouble would this be to merge this into the CIA.

    ps. I didn't try it yet, was just wondering if the performance is affected like it is with Monster Hunter Stories.

    Sorry, your problem is that the patch is for the Japanese version, not the Korean one. It should be possible for us to make a patch for the Korean version, too, but it hasn't gotten anywhere past idle talk so far. In the meantime, you should either find a clean Japanese version (thankfully, much easier to find than the Korean game), or use a pre-patched CIA if you can locate one.
    Previously, they were all stored raw, which was causing some long load times and at least one crash, presumably due to memory filling up with uncompressed graphics. We compressed them with ETC1 SlowPerceptual, which took hours but resulted in images that look identical to the naked eye.
    Not too difficult as long as you can unpack/repack a CIA (which is pretty much automated these days). Performance is indeed affected, you will get shorter load times running a repacked CIA compared to using NTR. If you're able to find or create your own it is quite nice from what I've heard, but I haven't tried it yet, personally (layeredFS for life!).

    I found a bug with the quest started status. It is usually cut off.

    It would say like
    [Quest Name] - Quest Sta

    Chief dude in Leafre has blank text to say to you

    Thanks for the reports. I've fixed Chief Tatamo's line on our end, fix will be in the next update. Will look into the Quest Status messages.
