    People saying to use MHX to speed the process of the patch probably aren't using the readily available MHX guides to assist in parts that are available already. There are plenty of things available already to help with translating online or even on a mobile phone.

    I agree with you but i also understand the frustration. Its nice of them to volunteer to make a translation patch but not communicating with us is the problem. Even just small updates like "we are 65% done with version 1" etc. would be nice. They dont even respond to PM's about if they need help or whatnot.

    You can see people are already making other threads about willing to do translation patches instead since we have no idea what MaximusX800 and his team are even doing at the moment. And since they gained alot of traction, alot of people are put-off making another translation group.

    Hmmm, i didn't want to respond here, as Max has the lead and therefore should handle this.

    So some answers:
    Yes, i used MHGen as a base to auto translate roughly 70% of the game, which was done in like 15minutes and took care of all the old stuff. We still exclude dialog even tho we could use it, as using ripped dialogs is pretty much asking for a C&D. The others are working on the new items, weapons, armors and new ui/menues. We also had some crash issues which took time to resolve, due to some stuff we couldn't take as is from MHGen.

    I just want to clarify my role in here:
    I do everything technical and graphic assets and nothing more. i leave the recruiting, orga and stuff to max.

    Edit:
    And yes we ditched the original MHX font to inject the MH4U font which is much cleaner and suited for westerners.

    Thanks for the update. What normally causes the crashes mind i ask? Its it going beyond the allowed characters or something else? Also, what do you use to open the arc files? Ohana or something else? Thanks for your effort.

    Everything we use is developed by me and is partly available in my tools collection (see signature).

    Edit:
    Some crashes were caused because MHGen used icons in some strings which in these specific strings were not supported by MHXX. There are many reasons for crashing, finding the cause is very time consuming but fixing them is our highest priority.

    Thanks for your efforts people!

    I don't want to be another "eta" guy but if I have to say something, it's I really hope Capcom doesn't announce a western release before this is done haha.

    Hey Guys,

    Just wanted to shed some light on our status.

    While we have made good progress on the games new content, there's still a bit more I want to complete before releasing V1.

    As always, we try to bring the highest quality fan translations to the new Monster Hunter games.

    I have been very busy with personal things over the past few days, and trying to balance in project time.

    We're almost there, please just give us a bit more time.

    sorry for a newb question, but i have question about these translations. i currently have cfw and a9lh with the mhxx japanese version cia. to apply the patch, would we simply install via fbi and play? what about playing online? can we play online once we have the translation as well? thanks!

    we will release an NTR patch and a xdelta3 patch for the romfs.bin. Yes, you can play online with those.

    As a bonus we will provide a cia, which will download and install the latest NTR patch. (so you don't have to transfer 1400 files via FTP).

    So fastest method will be:
    1. install provided cia via FBI QRCode (822kb)
    2. run cia (will take about 9mins to install, may vary depending on your microSD)
    3. run BootNTR or NTR Selector
    4. run game
    5. profit
