    About the Game:
    Nope, this is not Style Savvy, more like a mature take on Style Savvy.
    You got fashion items like in SS, but from what it looks like, I think there's a dating mode. I only played the beginning of it.
    This game has high-quality graphics and sound that pushes the NDS to it's limits.

    About this Patch:
    This patch will translate a few of the graphics (Title Screen, My Room, etc.) to English, and a bit more graphics starting with v1.1.
    This was made back in August of 2015, so I thought I'd show it off here.

    NOTE:
    This project currently isn't active, one reason being that I have no idea how to edit the text in the "Msg" folder.

    Download (v1.1)

    Screenshots

    Tools used:
    • Tinke and ndstool (via dslazy): Graphics extraction and ROM unpacking/repacking.
    • GIMP: Graphics editing.
    • HxD: Banner editing, with adding animation sequence, and calculating CRC16.
    • Tile Layer Pro: Editing/adding banner icon frames.

    FAQs

    Q: How about translating the 3DS version?
    A: I extracted the RomFS of the 3DS version, and most files have a file extension called ".g1t". There's no .g1t extractor that support the "GT1G0500" string at the beginning of the files, so there may not be a translated 3DS version for a while.

    • Me: The graphics translation and splash screen.

    I am so freaking happy that someone translated it but it sucks that it only translate those two things..have you've tried looking up who can translate the rest??

    Hi there! I don't know if it's too late to do this but do you have the 3DS version? Because I would like to get translations for the 3DS version as well. I really prefer to play the game on the 3DS instead.

    Do you want to try? I mean the 3DS version is cool. Like there are movies in it. So what do you think?

    Yep, the 3DS version certainly has higher resolution, and 3D visuals.
    About translating the 3DS version, I extracted the RomFS of the rom, and there's an unknown file extension called ".g1t". I have no idea how to edit files with that extension.

    It's been a while, but today, I translated a bit more stuff.

    v1.1 is now released!
    • Added cool new Robz8 splash above the "Ruby Party Presents" text.
    • Most translated button graphics now have their white glow restored.
    • "Sound" is changed to "Sound Volume" in Title Screen.
    • All Title Screen buttons are now translated.
    • Sound Volume screen is now translated.
    • The Japanese brand name text below the English brand names have been removed in the Closet screen.
    • To make up for not being able to translate the 3DS version, the banner icon is now animated, as the crown twinkles a bit like in the 3DS version!
      This makes this the first ever DS translation project to have an animated banner icon!
      The icon animation can be seen on the 3DS HOME Menu as a forwarder, and on NO$GBA running the DSi Menu.
    You can get v1.1 in the first post. Screenshots are also updated.

    I wish I could play the DSi version but I can't. The game itself doesn't work for me.

    @jjjewel I hate to pester you, seeing that you're busy with stuff.
    From looking at this post, it seems like you worked on translating the game as well.
    If it's not too much trouble, any chance of PM'ing me the translated files?
    I'll credit you for the use of them. :)

    Hello! I came from the other forum where I made the topic about this and you linked me to this page. I just wanted to say thank you here as well and I see that someone has some translated files already? May I ask how that is working out?
    Oh! Also as for the file extension you mentioned I have some links on the other topic about it that I do so hope will help.

    I'd translate some more, but my Japanese knowledge is pretty much lacking.
    Thanks.

    Hi! Thank you so much for this translation first of all!
    I'm sorry for being a total noob to all this TvT but how do I install this English patch? My Fabstyle DS game cartridge just arrived in the mail and I downloaded and extracted all the files (version 1.1) to a folder on my computer, but I am lost no as to how to get this English patch to play on my ds. Thank you so much! <3

    1. Make a backup of your FabStyle ROM file.
    2. Open "DeltaPatcher.exe" or "DeltaPatcherLite.exe".
    3. For the original file, search for the FabStyle ROM file.
    4. For the XDelta patch, search for "FabStyle English Project.xdelta".
    5. Click "Apply patch", and the English patch will be installed to the ROM file.
    As for playing this on your DS, do you own a flashcard?

    Thank you so much! I don't know how to extract/make a backup of the ROM file though :( because I own a cartridge version.
    By flashcard, did you mean SD card? I don't have my DS or DSi anymore, I am playing it on my 3ds right now. I also have luma and FBI, ect if that helps :)

    Thank you so much again!
